Mrs. Lcttlo Short, a woman sevoral

Mrs. Pratt said that she had not

of November. A divorce case in
which Mrs. Short is sought as a
party, is a feature of the affair, It
it understood.
Mrs. Pratt believes that her son
and Mrs. Short are In hiding some
where, presumably in the vicinity
ot Prlnovllle, on the Marker home
stead. This belief Is strengthened
by the fact that one ot the youth's
sisters received a letter from him
recently asking that his mall be ad
dressed to Prlneville. He Is using
the name of Cbrlstofer Jenkins.
Until the receipt of the letter, it
was thought that the two wero some

(From Monday's Dally.)
In a recent Btatomont mado to Tho
Tlmborman, tho Portland lumber
men's Journal, T. A. McCann, general
managor ot Tho Shovlln-Hlxon Com
pany, of Bond, predicts that 1917
will bo tho groatcBt year for western
plno in tho history of tho country.
Mr. McCann's comploto statement
"I would say, In summing up con
ditions which surrounded tho west
ern plno trade during tho past year,
that It haa at last como Into its own
and Is bolng recognized by thd trado
gonorally as a very suporlor ar
ticle "Whon proporly handled and grad
pd western plno lurqbor can bo ship
ped anywhoro throughout tho east

trouble In tho past 'has been that
customers havo boon receiving a dif
ferent class ot lumber in westorn
plno from ditforent localities and got
to a point whoro, thoy hcsltatod bo
foro placing any business for west
orn plno. Thoy havo, howovor, dis
covered that thoro aro cortatn places
whoro thoy can bo reasonably suro
of getting nlco soft toxturo and well
milled, well gradod stock, and I do
not think that tlieso mills over will
suffer for ordors tor western plno,
oven though tho domand for lum
bar Is smal).
Mt VuMtrn New Grading.
'There has, boon n movomont on
foot to grado westorn plno on dlffor
out standards, namely to taka Into
consideration, among Its othor de
fects, tho question ot texturo also
of establishing a grado of No. 1 west
ern plno which, though not corres
ponding to tho No. 1 grado of north
ern piuo, will at least represent tho
higher percontago ot the No. 2 stock
now shipped, but which Is technical
ly laid' out from tho No, 1, according
to tho present rules; In othor words,
I am In favor of seeing a standard
set for grades ot westorn plno that
will. tit this particular wood ratlior

havo used for northern plno nnd try
to adopt our wood to them.
