being completed over tLe six-mile
course in 19 minutes.
The course raced over this morn
ing was laid out by Mrs. F. G. Buf

cellent time made is due in jreat
part to the judgment used by the
latter in selecting the route. Eight
jumps were included in the course.
The racers were stand by T. S.

remarkable in view of tbe muddy
course and heavy going. The
judge at the finish was E R. Eld

Letter to Mother la Ohio.
From the Portland TelefcTm.
There is a prisoner serving a six
months' sentence at Kellev Butte
who should have been a jokewriter
instead ol a petty thief. Had he
applied himself to literature rather
than to sleight-o'-hand trick, he
would no doubt have become a rival
of Mark Twain and Mr. Dooley.
Letters written by prisoucrs at
the Butte are, like epistles penned
by the inmates of other jails, read
before being sent out. This action
s taken by the guards to prevent
any plotting or the giving of infor
mation that might tend to aid un
captured criminal to escape.

According to the result of many
measurements made at the antho-
pological laboratory in Washington
the right arm of human beings is in
a majority of cases longer than the
left arm. while, on the contrary, the
left leg is longer than the right leg.
Sometimes, however, the relative
proportioes are exactly reversed,
but very seldom does perfect equal
ity exist between the two sides.
The tendency of tbe light arm to
exceed the left arm in strength is
somewhat greater in men than in
women, while equality of strength
in the two arms occurs a,most twice

Mr. Baker grew worse and died a
few minutes after the physician ar
rived. For twenty years Mr. Baker had
been in the politics of the state.
He served two terms as state print
er and since his incumbency direct
ed several political campaigns. He
retired last year as chairman of the
state organization. He was always
a republican and when the party in
Multnomah county split into fac
tions, be allied himself with tbe
Mitchell wing. Up to within a few
months ago he was an applicant for
United States Collector of Customs.
Since his retirement be has resid
ed in Portland, eneaeinz in the
commission business. He made a
fortune from the state printing office
and invested it to advantage, so that
he leaves a large estate. Mr Bak
er's judgment on politics was noted
throughout Oregon, since at every
election he laid heavy wagers on the
the outcome. He. was the son
W. W. Baker, formerly state food
commissioner and publisher of the
Rural Spirit, on which paper de
ceased worked for many years.
Mr. Baker was one of the best
known printers in the state and was
instrumental in organizing the first
typographcial union in Oregon.
His policy was to pay tne mgnesi
wages to his employes in the state
printing office and he recognized
that it was througn me loyai sup

Upon the publication of Mrs. Uva
F.raery Dye's graphic narrative ot
the expedition ol Lewis and Clark
to the Pacific Coast the Inter-Oeean
editorially directed attention to the
services of Sacajawca, the heroine
of that famous exploration, aud sug
gested that she should be enrolled
among the nation's notable women.
It was further suggested that the
women of the country should erect
a statue to the Indian woman at the
Louisiana Purchase Exposition at
St. Louis, the starting point of the
expedition of 1S04.
It now appears that the sugges
tion of the Inter-Ocean has leea
taken up in far away Oregon.
Portland is to hold iu 190s a Lewis
and Clark Centennial in celebration
of the Centenary of the first cros
ing of the continent. The women
ot Oregon, Washington. Idaho,
and the Dakotas have taken up the
project of erecting a memorial to
Saeajewea suitable to tne occasiou.
It is proposed to erect a statute to
cost alout 6ooo. it nas wca
thought fitting that the sculptcr
should be a woman and a Western
er, and Miss Alice Cooper, of Colo
rado, has been suggested.
Readers who are laminar wua
that ereat American classic, me
Journal of Lewis and Clark, or who
have enioyed "The Conquest," will
remember Saeajewea and her servi
ces to the explorers. Lewis and
Clark found her in their winter camp
among the Mandacs. She was a
captive Shoshone girl ot 16, and
the slave wife of a French half-breed
interpreter. She would have died
in childbirth had it not been for the
aid ot the explorers. In the spring
she and husband and baby went
West with the party.
When the explorers naa aoan
doned their canoes and were ap
proaching tbe Gates of the Moun
tains they stood face to lace with
failure, because of the lack of

Man.l smoothed the. way through
the Flatheads and the Nez Perces.
Passing over her many services dur
ing the winter spent at the mouth
of the Columbia, it was Sacajawea
who guided the party on the return
trip. She seemed to have the in
stinct of the homing pigeon, and
time and again found the way out
of the wilderness.
Saeajewea understood the impor
tance of the expedition, and was in
earnest for its success as were its
leaders. Her services were great,
if she was not the salvation of Lew
is and Clark. Yet. when and where
she died is not known, and no stone
marks her resting place.
The importance of tbe expedition
of Lewis and Clark is brought strik
ingly to the mind by the tact that
the wilderness through which Sae
ajewea guided them 100 years ago
is now thickly studded with flourish
ing cities that propose to erect a sta
tue to their guide.
