Doubt About Tat Sale.
There seems to be considerable
doubt In the xuiuds of some of the
t'onuty Shi-riffs throughout the state
of Oregon as to how they should pro
oeed to collect the delinquent taxes for
the past year. Attorney-General
Crawford rendered au opinion some
time ago, in which be took the
ground that the legislation aloug this
line, euaoted by ths last legislature
would not do to go by and so ha ad
vised the various sheriffs to begin
action under the old law, which
reqaired the publication of each a
list, whereas the new law was
thought to do away with any such
modus operandi. Bat, In spite of
such legal ad vine, at least 12 of the
sheriffs have decided not to proceed
after any such fitidilon, but will not
publish the delimiueut list, as pro
vided in the new law. Sheriff Hn"

Unfamiliar Animals That Haunt This
Region of Mystery. .
The mightiest forest of which the
human race haa any knowledge today
Is that of the Kongo. It Is a region
of Impenetrable mystery concerning
which accounts have been so strsnge
that until the past few years they
have been deemed Incredible. But re
cent discovery has transformed scien
tific Incredulity into a measure of be
lief. Thus on the basis of Sir Harry
Johnston's erplorations of Uganda a
giant ape larger than the gorilla Is a
denizen of this tremendous forest re
ifinn There, too. are animals of a
quite unfamiliar kind, notably the
okapl. The forest seems to be the re
sort of the five horned giraffe, the
tallest mammal In the world. The
bucest elephants, bearing tremendous
tusks, are there. The largest flHh
found In all Africa haunt the streams
tiiniinderlnir through the recesses of
this forest. Lions seem not to pene

gle thereabouts. The forest leopards
are arboreal, catching monkeys for
The curiosity of the mighty forest Is
unquestionably the okapl, a large and
seemingly new mammal, discovered
by Sir Harry Johnston. In his books
of travel Stanley told of an animal of
ass-like appearance existing in the
dense forest which was caught in
pits. The occurrence of anything like
a quadruped of the equine sort In the
thickness of an impenetrable forest
seemed so anomalous that no scientist
of standing would credit the possibil
ity; hence the determination of Sir
Harry Johnston to Investigate. Cur

Story ef sn Odd Incident In a Dental
A remarkable Incident happened re
cently at a dental hospital. A young
woman went there to have five teeth
extracted. The anaesthetic decided
upon by the dental surgeon was ethyl
chloride, and this was administered by
the usual form of apparatus. An In
dia rubber cap la placed over the pa
tlent'a mouth and nostrils, and con
nected with It Is a bng Into which a
sealed capsule of ethyl chloride Is in
troduced. By the turning of a screw
from the outside the capsule Is broken
and the anaesthetic liberated. The
screw was turned, the patient went off
gradually Into the usual condition of
Insensibility, five teeth were extracted,
and the patient awakened without feel
ing any part of the operation.
The whole case appeared perfectly
normal. Only when the young wo
man had left the room and the ap
paratus was being made ready for
another patient waa it discovered that
the capsule of ethyl chloride had by
some mischance not been broken at all.
The whole condition of Insensibility
bad been brought about by the self
hypnotism of the patient. The Idea
that an anaesthetic was being admin
istered was so strong In her mind that
she had passed Into Insensibility en
tirely by hypnotic suggestion. Boston
