Trouble over a l.ovo Affair the Cnuso
of a Very foolish Act.
TucMluy afternoon Mrs. IXmmii
Johnson attempted to commit sui
cide by taking chloroform. Anti
dotes, however, were administered
to her and she will recover from
the effects of her rash net. She
was very ill for a day or two but
will soon be out again.
Tuesday afternoon she went to
the drug store and purchased a
small amount of chloroform, stat
ing that she had suffered consider
ably the nitfht before from tooth
ache and wanted the chloroform so
as to cure it. She then went to
the Pilot Itutte Inn, where she had
been working, and took the poison.
Immediately after taking it, she
called another employe of the
hotel into the room and told her
what she had done. This em
ploye immediately notified others,
antidotes were administered, nud
after strenuous work she was de
clared out of danger, not. however,
until she had suflored terribly from
the effects of the poison.
The act was caused by trouble in
a love affair.

TO EXTEND ITS LINES
DescluiteH Telephone Cojiv
pany Plans Extensions.
WORK WILL BEGIN AT GNCK
The Upper Deschutos Valley Will Soon
lie Covered with n llioroiigh Sys
tem of Phono Lines.
One of the most important steps
that could be taken in the develop
ment of the country contiguous to
liend nud the upper Deschutes
valley was taken this week when
the ninungcmont of the Deschutes
Telephone company, with head
quarters at liend, decided 011 a num
ber of extensions to their present
tinea. When these extensions are
made, this section of the Deschutes
valley will be bound together by a
thorough system of telephone lines,
both rural nud long distance. With
He ml as a center, ranchers living
in the extensive scope of country
bounded on the east by Priuevillc,
ou the north and west by Poieiit
and Sisters and ou the south by
Silver Lake will have direct con
nection by telephone with their
trading centers nud the outside
world The towns will have long
distance connections, both north
and south, with all the cities of the
Northwest and the coast country.
During the week there has been
n reorganization of the telephone
company, due to the fact that A.
L. Goodwillic and P. I.. Tompkins
had disposed of their stock. Hoth
Messrs. Tompkins and Goodwillie
were members of the board of
directors, being vice-president nud
treasurer respectively. Wednesday
evening, a meeting of the stock
holders was held to perfect a re
organization of the coutpany when
Hon. K. H. King of Sandusky,
Ohio, and Attorney R. D. Wick
ham of Heud were elected to posi
tions ou the board of directors.
Under the reorganization the of
ficers of the company areas follows:
W. K. Guerin, jr., president nud
treasurer, 15. II. King, vice-president
nud assistant secretary; R. D.
Wickhnm, secretary. P. I.. Tomp
kins on November 1 retires from
the imsitiou of auditor and will be
succeeded by Miss Uttssie Wilkin
son. During this meeting, the mnttcr
of these extensions was discussed
and it wns voted to author
ize them and to push construc
tion at once. The extensions will
be ns follows;
From Hcnd to I'rineville on the
Near Creek road; liend to Ice Caves
taking in the Arnold ditch country;
Hcud to Silver Lake via Rostand.
Prom Laidlaw to Sisters; Laid
law to Tumalo; Laidlaw to Cline
Palls; Clinc I'alls to Redmond:
Redmond to Porest; Lsldlaw to
Redmond via Forked Horn buttc
The company now has lines
from Hcud to I.nidlaw, Hcnd to
Priuevillc and I'rineville to Porest.
The poles nnd wire nrc nlready
ordered for the extension from
Laidlaw to Sisters and work will
be commenced on tliat line at once
and pushed with all possible speed.
Work on the other extensions will
alwj be commenced and carried
forward during the winter.
The exact route of these lines
has not been determined upon.
'I he plan is to build them where
the greatest numlxir of rural sub
scribers can be procured. The
question of their construction, how
ever, is definitely settled nud only
a few months will see a large por
tion of the upper Deschutes valley
covered with a thorough and effi
cient system of rural and long dis
tance telephone Hues.
A Telephone Directory.
The Deschutes Telephone company, as
its new extensions are made, will furnUh
to all subscribers a complete directory of
its various lines. These directories will
differ from the average directory in tlmt
they will lie corrected every month or
six weeks, with the names of new sub
It is also planned to solicit advertising
from merchant in the towns reached by
time lilies, the advertisements to be in
corporated in the directory. With these
directories corrected every mouth ami
with them distributed completely over
this territory, their value as an advertis
ing medium will be tint-claw. Kvery
progressive merchant will need and
want an ad. in its jMges.
The company iill furnish the direc
tories and the work of correcting them
so frequently free to subscribers.
Telephone Line to Silver Lake.
A telephone line from the south
will be built into Silver Lake.
Joseph Hessig, president of the
Klamath telephone and telegraph
Company, was in Silver Lake lust
week, looking out a route for a
line from Port Klamath to Silver
Lake via Klamath Marsh. He
said the line is a sure go, and that
work would commence in the
spring. His company has sub
stantial financial backing and it is
expected when the line is once
started the work will be pushed to
completion as rapidly ns possible.
RAILROADS ARE BUSY
Surveyors Are Again
RANKIN TELLS OP GOOD WORK
Many Men Hm ployed In Finding Best
Route over the Cascade Moun
tains Near Diamond Peak.
Some of the Oregon Eastern
surveying crews thnt left the upper
Deschutes country several weeks
ago to complete work around
Hums, have returned to this section
of the state. I,ast week Engineer
Millar and staff passed through
Silver L,ake on their way to Odell
lake to resume work on the sur
veys that they ran last summer.
While at Silver Lake Mr. Millar
stated that his crew would now run
the final preliminary lines nnd that
the Oregon Eastern rond will surely
be built in the very near future.

Rankin lias 100 .Men nt Work.
C. R. Rankin, the engineer who
has charge of the survey of the
Oregon Eastern railway which is
being made from Natron up the
middle fork of the Willamette and
crossing the Cascades at Odell lake
to connect with the' line coming
north through California via the
Klamath country and which will
eventually be built across eastern
Oregon to connect with the Oregon
Short Line at Ontario, was in
Eugene recently and told a Register
representative of the progress bis
crews were making. He has at
present in the surveying force
something like 100 men, scattered
in different groups from the sum
mit near Odell lake nearly to Na
tron. They are all busy and the
work is progressing finely. They
will most likely be at work there
all winter as they were last winter,
the desirable object being to get
over the mountains with the light
est grade possible. In fact, they
arc limited to a maximum grade
beyond which they cannot go.
There will be no heavy tunneling nt
the summit, only one short tunnel
will be needed there. They have
plenty of help iu the engineering
force, but have more difficulty se
curing ordinary labor.
There is little doubt that this
new line will be a very easy grade
across the mountains and will be
the ouc used by the Southern Pa
cific for their California traffic and
it will mean a line to Eastern Ore
gon and Salt Lake by a much
shorter cut than Portland now has.
This Hue from Natrou over the
mountains is one in which Heud is
much intercted, as it connect:, with
the Graham survey through Hcnd.
When completed from Natron to
Klamath, it will furnish a line of
railroad on the east side of the
Cascades from which to begin con
struction northward into the Bend
