taining money and divers articles
of merchandise from Henry G.
Ploeger, of Myrtle Point, under
false pretense. Through the in
strumentality of Sheriff Gage, Huff
was located and arrested at Empire,
He was brought to this city Mon
day and received au informal intro
duction to Judge E. G D. Holden
before whom he waived examina
tion and.will be given board and
lodging at the county jail until the
September term of court when his
case will be finally disposed of.
Huff raised a check given by C.
C. Carter on a bank at Myrtle Point
from $6 to $60 and Mr. Ploeger
was mulcted out of money and
goods in its acceptance.
The accused is a man apparently
twenty-five years of age, aud is said
to be industrious. He voluntarily
admitted to Judge Holden that he
had stolen a bicycle from a party
on Coos Bay and was addicted to
habits of a criminal. He is of the
wandering class and his meander
ings are now iu a fair way to be
checked by a residence in Salem.
The value of demonstration farm
work as a means of establishing
scientific farming in the various
counties of Oregon was emphasized
by Dr. James WithycomOe, director
of experimental stations at the Ore
gon Agricultural College, in an ad
dress before the farmers’ round up
at Moro reoen tly. He stated that it
is his opinion that the maintenance
of a demonstration farm in each
couuty under competent supervision
would in five years increase the an
nual agricultural production of the
state $10,000,000, without adding
one square rod to the farm acerage-
“These demonstration farms not
only would be valuable means of
showing the possibilities of agricul
tural production in the different
counties, but would also be centers
for co-operative demonstration work
among the farmers,” said Dr. With-
ycoinbe. “ The superintendent of

Fly Killing Contest
Seventy-two pounds of flies have
been taken to the health office dur
ing the past three weeks as a result
of a fly killing campaign with prizes
offered by the Portia Club and the
Business Men’s Associatson of
North Yakima. Flies in paper buck
ets and in gunnysacks are being de
weighed and counted.
There are something over 10,000

into the millions and the contest
has still a week to go. One of the
boys in the lead has a big trap in
one of the slaughter houses.
Chicken Has 4 Legs and 3 Wings
A Plymouth Rock chicken with
four legs and three wings, all per
fectly developed, which lived two
days, was hatched on a ranch near
Ridgefield, Washington, owned by
Dr. John H. Montgomery of Port
land. The body of the freak fowl
is now in possession of Dr. Mont
gomery, who will have it mounted
by a taxidermist.
In life the chick used two of its
legs for walking. The remaining
two legs were attached to the body
on the upper part of the abdomen.
The extra wing extended from the
back just above the tail. The chick
en was full of life and vigor for 36
hours after it was batched, then it
became sick and died.
The chicken's unusual supply of
legs and wings was the result of
fertilization of a two yolked egg,
according to poultrymen.

Dr. Harry Lane of Portland, dem

Harry Lane delivered the Fourth

replete with patriotism emanating
from the heart of one thoroughly
endowed w'th love of our country
and reverence to our flag.
Mr. Lane was a resident of Coos
county in 1873, and for several
years thereafter, this being the
initial point chosen after first leav

many old-timers here and is partic

in the interest of his candidacy and

An address was delivered by Mr.
Lane upon the political issues of
the day at Masonic Hall Tuesday

He said it he was elected United

to the laborer and tiller of the soil,
