Fought Case at Oregon City In
Fever ef the Fruit Inspector.
The new law relating to spraying
was upheld last Friday at Oregon
City, when the jury in the suit of
T. R. A. Sellwood vs. James II
Reid brought in a verdict for the de
fendant after being out about three
hours. The verdict was expected
by all parties to the case, and the
jury was out much longer than an
The trial of the case lasted two
days and aroused Intense interest,
not only in Clackamas county but
in other sections of the state, as it
was generally considered a test of
the law, under which Commission

capacity, notified T. R. A. Sellwood
of Milwaukee to spray the trees in
his orchard, and after his failure to
do so took some men, went into the
orchard and cut down 34 prune trees
that were infested with San Jose

opposed and antagonized by severa
fruitgrowers and the victory for the
adherents ot clean fruit is generally
The rulings of Judge McBride on
questions that arose during the trial
were in favor of the defendant in
every instance. The court said tpat
keid bad a rieht to cut down the
trees, after Sellwood had failed to
comply with the law, and his in
structions to the jury were clear
and decisive. He said there were
only three propositions to be consid
ered whether or not the orchard
was infected; whether the plaintiff
had been notified in time in which
to spray, and whether be bad
sprayed. The. court defined the
duties of the fruit inspector, and said
when the official found an orchard
in a diseased condition it was bis
duty to notity the owner, and after
he had failed and neglected to spray
his trees, the inspector could use
his discretion in either cutting down
the orchard or spraying the trees
himself aud charging the expense
as a lien against the property. He
ruled that it was not necessary for
the fruit inspector to warn of the
consequences that might ensue in
the event of failure to spray, and
that ignorance of the law was no ex
The result of the trial will no
doubt make things easier for the
fruit inspectors, who have no easy
task and have aroused the enmity
of scores of people. Merchants who
deal in fruit, it is alleged, have made
it a point to defy the law, and it is
considered likely that violation and
unlawful practices will now come to
Hair Raising- Tale.
"The 'Beauty Doctor told a good
ttory about her hair-restorer," said a
well known Akron business man,
"but I know a better one. With
several other men I was associated,
several years ago, in the manufac
ture of a restorer. We had a fakir
selling the remedy, and this was one
of his tales;
" 'A woman came to me the oth
er day for her eighth bottle. She
said she liked the taste of it so welL
I was frightened and took ber into
a private office and told ber to show
me her tongue. She stuck it out
and there was a half inch of hair on
it To keep from hurting the busi
ness, he had to feed her camphor
balls all that summer to keep the
moths out of her stomach.' "
To the Delta Patrons
Drt. LinkUter and Tatnicsle desire to
announce to the patrons of the Delta
Drug Store, that they have acq aired the
stock of goods in the store, that they
are increasing and perfecting the same
and its pharmaceatial requirements and
that they hare sufficient and efficient
clerk hire to conduct a first-class estab
lishment. Bitter esperience bas taught
the Delta, however, that it cannot do as
much crediting as formerly, therefore a
cash business (or almost ita equivalent,
a very short credit) will be greatly ap
preciated. Souvenir postals at the Hillsboro

to state that in the case of the axes

Japanese leather, which is not leath-

that it dpoeivM most neonle and

$4.00 up to Ito.oo a roll but the

tremely durable, can be washed

Big- Money In Potatoes
La Grande, Or., Nov. 18. Farm
ers who planted potatoes last spring
are reaping a bountiful harvest in
the Grande Ronde Valley. The
gross income from this year's crop
3 placed at $50,000 on the output of
potatoes from this valley. It is es
timated that too cars will be neces
sary to ship this season's crop.
These figures are computed on
the basis of 1000 acres with an aver
ace vield on unirrieated lands on I
the "'Sandridge" section, and the
estimate is conservative. More
than half of the entire potato acre
age of the valley is in the vicinity
oi Imblen and Alicel.
Fields that have produced 60
sacks to the acre and very many
tracts have done better than that I
give a net return of $27.50 per acre,
The gross receipts from an acre at
the present price of 65 cents per
sack amounts to $39. One of the
prominent growers figures the cost
of production per acre at $11.50, as
follows: Cultivating, 3 00; dig-
ging and sacking, $3.00; seed, $t.oo I
The heaviest vield so far reported
is that of A. J. Surby, of Cove, who
has secured 300 sacks from one acre,
At the present market price, Mr.
Surby's income for an acre is I195,
of which about $183. so is net. A
six-acre field on the Oregon Red
Apple Company's ground, north of
La Grande, gives a yield of 200
sacas per acre. Ihese potatoes
wenre grown etirely without irriga-
tion, and on account of their super-
ior quality are rated 10 cents higher
than the open market.

very recent case from an outside

The oldest of this number was a
boy of 14, and the youngest a baby
of about 16 months. The second
in age was a girl aged 13, and the
next a girl of about it. It was re
ported by ladies of the vicinity to
the superintendent of the society
that the two girls had complained
to them that their father was be

manner toward them. After an in

children awarded to this society;

says that despite the fact that Lr. Ward

Creiliieid died from strychnine poisoning
and that the Coroner has accepted the
chemists' report to mean she committed
suicide. Esther Mitchell persists that
Mr.. Cieffleld did not kill herself. Miss
Mitchell challenges the truth of the cor
oner's findings. When told of the result
she said :
"Maud never took poison; we were
very intimate and knew each other's in
nermost secrets. If Maud had planned
to take poison, I certainly would have
known about it, and she never told me
anything about it.
"Maud Creffiuid believed suicide was
cowardly and always instated that she
could not take her own life. Idonot be

It would have been Impossible for Maud
to have taken poison without my know-

before she died. "I saw Mrs. Creflield,
