THE NEW FARM ADVISER.
A meeting was held In the assem
bly haU at the Commercial club at
10: SO o'clock this forenoon, at which
the committee from the various or
ganizations appointed to greet the
new farm expert, C D. Thompson,
welcomed him to the community.
About 50 farmers and local business
men were present to make the new
man in their midst feel at .home.
County Commissioner Robinson pre
sided at the meeting. M. 0. Evans,
assistant state leader in farm exten
sion work, was present and explained
the general plan nnder which the
agricultural college and the counties
through the offices of the farm ex
pert co-operated. ' , ,
Mr. Thompson addressed the gath
ering, and made a most favorable im
pression upon his audience. The
new agriculturist is no longer a
young man, but has a rich experience
In agricultural and horticultural lines
to direct him, this being supplement
ed by the science and practical effort
of the department of agriculture and
the state agricultural . college. He
asked the co-operation of the entire
community, and stated that while
conditions were new to him, prob
lemB that were put np to him would
be studied and solved as readily as
possible. He said that an office would
be opened up somewhere in the city,
which would be open at least one or
two days a week to the general pub
lic seeking bis services, and that the
balance of the time he expected to
spend in the field visiting farmers
and making first-hand investigations
of conditions. He will also be the
horticulturist and will have direction
of that work in the county under
District Commissioner A. C. Allen.
The office room has not yet been
selected, but a number of locations
are under consideration, the Com
mercial club also offering the new
official room if it could be arranged
to meet his requirements. A com
mittee composed of the chairman of
the meeting, of the farm adviser and
of the master of the county grange
was named to select an office room
for the new official.
The work throughout the county
will be outlined by an advisory com.
wittee to co-operate with Mr. Thomp'
son. This committee will consist of
representatives of the varous granges
and other farm organizations within
the county, and will be organized in
the near future, at which time State
Leader Marls will come down from
Corvallts to assist In outlining the
Chicago, Feb. 16. Destruction of
the city hail by fire, along with evi
dence in the "poison banquet" case,
was sought by anarchists today, the
police believe. This view was given
after investigation of the strange Ore
near the laboratory in the city ball,
where .analysists were determining
the nature of poison, fed to Arch
bishop Mundeleln and others, sup
posedly by Sub-Chef Jean Crones of
the University club.
iA corked (bottle was found within
a few Inches of the flames, and when
water was thrown on It it exploded
and emitted an unusual odor. An
other bottle which had exploded was
found in a coat room. In the bottom
of It was a white powder, which chem
ists are now analyzing.
The police announced that Crones
and John Allegrlnl, the latter now a
prisoner, were seen together Thurs
day In a saloon, where Crones
changed a $100 bill.

FOR EX-SEXATOU ROOT
Chicago. Feb. 16. A mysterious
and, evidently, an incendiary fire ear
ly today caused slight loss in tne
city ball near the laboratory In which
poisons belonging to Jean Crones,
supposed "poison banquet" plotter,
were being analyzed.
A quart 'bottle of oil was found In
a cloak room on the seventh floor and
flames were curling up the walls
when Dr. R. M. Phillips, arriving ear
ly at the laboratory, discovered the
blaze. Firemen soon checked it, how
The fire was regarded as more sig
nificant because maps showing the
floor plans of the city hall and fed

effects, found after he disappeared
following the poison attempt on the
lives of Archbishop Mundeleln, Gov
ernor Dunne and others at a banquet
last week. The search for Crones
has produced scores of letters, the
police say, indicating plots in many
