of her death.

monlhu and 22 days old at the time
of her death. The funeral will bo

The bereaved relatives 'will have
the sincere sympathy of a large cir
cle of friends.

Geo. Small Forges
F. L. Christie's
A man signing his name Ceo
Small, passed n bud check nt the
Racket store Inst Friday. Tho check
was drawn on tho Band of Bandon
And the name of F. I.. Christie had
been forged to it by Small.
About n month ago Small went in
to the Racket store and told Mr. Car
penter that ho was going to cut wood
for F. L. Christie and said he wanted
to tuy n pair of socks and thnt he
would pay for them us soon as ho got
his check. Mr. Carpenter let him
huvo tho socks and thought no more
nbout it until last Friday wlien the
ttian enmo into tho store, introduced
himself and told Mr. Carpenter that
he hod come to pay for tho socks,
and wanted omo other articles. Ho
purchased uyiods to, the amount of
$3.GG nnd presented the check of ?19.
05. Mr.v Carpenter gave him 10.00
in cash. The check was not deposit
ed until yesterday and it was then
found to be a crude iorgery.
An attempt is being made to np-
prehend the forger, but as ho hnd
about four days start on the ofllcers
it is doubtful if he will bo caught.
Boy Adjudged Incorrigible.
In the juvenile court here last Sat
urday, a Bandon boy about eleven
years old, named Wesley I'hennegcr,
wns adjudge delinquent, pronounced
incorrigible, and it wns ordered that
ho be committed to the charge of the
Hoys and Girls Aid Society nt Fort
land, and II. W. Dunham was appoint
ed a special probation officer to take
him there. This kid had been known
as a "holy terror" nt home, and his
exploits after being placed in Mr.
Dunham's care would fill several
chapters in a dime novel. Ho first
stole nwny and secreted himself on a
river honf. and got hack to Bandon.
Anjjfilccr who hnd been telephoned to
was awaiting him nt the dock, but
Wesley gave him the slip nnd could
not be found until lie went home nt
bedtime. When ho was brought back
Judge Hall said ho didn't like to put
a hoy of that age in jail, but he didn't
know as Dunham could do any bet
ter than lock him in tho padded cell
at tho court house. Dunham thought
ho could manage htm, though, but
got n blow that almost knocked him
cudwlso after putting shackles on the
boy's feet. Ho appears to have been
tamed, though, as on Wednesday ev
ening wo saw hhn coasting down tho
incline of tho Spurgoou street bridge

Tho final installingnt of the "Lu
cille Love" sorics. In this last and
most tremenduous of the "Lucille
Love" pictures Hugo Louhcquc falls
intot he trap which heretofore ho had
used to defeat those opposed to him.
Plan as a mnn will, unfnrscen coincf
deuces m isc which confound rea
son nnd place tho work of a life time
at naught. It happened thus with
Louheque. When Lucille learned that
Loubeque was to moot Lieutenant
Hndley at his (Louheque's) home, she
nt once hastened to the rendezvous
herself. As she was tho first to ar
rive, she took n look through the
house of so many terrors. When she
beheld a picture of Loubeque on tho
wall, tho though of all his crimes and
the hitter hatred of her father over
whelmed hor, nnd she raicsd her re
volver and filed into tho ftice of the
picture. Even before the echo of the
report died away an mimaing thing
'happened. She saw tho floor of a
bedroom slowly sink out of sight. Hud
she not known what hnd already trans
pired in that house, she would have
been confounded. She removed tho
picturof rom tho wall and behind it
found a switch board. It was from
this hoard that Loubeque controlled
all the traps, staircases and sliding
ways nnd floors of the house. Forth
with she tested every switch. Ono
caused a staircase to disappear, an
other cnused a desk to sink into tho
floor. No sooner than she had master
ed the system of switches than Lieu
tenant lladley arrived. In an instant
she laid her plan of action. She in
formed Hndley that Loubeque was not
there, butt hat ho would leave on tho
Golden Gate Limited thnt night. Hnd
ley was sntsfied and left. A few mo
ments later Loubeque arrived to keep
his appointment with lladley. In
stead of lladley he found Lucille. As
Loubeque leaned ngainst the desk
Lucille pressed the proper button nnd
Loubeque fell through the floor with
tho heavy desk on top of him. Lu
cille rushed to tho cellar and remov
ed the documents from his pockets
while ho was in a stunned condition.
An instant lator he recovered and
rnn after tho girl. But ho was too
kite. She ran to the secret tunnel
and just ns Loubeque reached out to
grasp her she slammed the iron gate
in his face. Lucille made hor way
quickly to tho depot and took tho train
for Wnshington. Loubeque arrived
at tho depot a moment after the
train had left. He realized that Lu
cille wns gone forovor witht ho pa
pers. Returningt oh is home Loube
que told Gibson that Lucillo was on
her way to Washington witii tho doc
uments. Gibson thoughlt ho spy was
lying to him and to settle the argu
ment they fight a thiol with swords.
In tho midst of tho fight tho house Is
surrounded with doteclivos, nnd Lo
liequo snw that ho must escapo while
there was yet time. In Hie instant be
fore t ho detectives rushed in Loubo-
que handed a package containing Lu
ciilc'fl costly necklace to Gibson and
toldh imt ot nkei t tot he Secretary of
War. A moment Intor Loubeque dis
appeared and the floors of tho house
tumbled into the collar, trapping
thosow ho had como to arrest tho spy.
Lucille dolivercilt ho dncumonts to

and thus saved the nnmo of hor fath

Murphy Family Is
Victim of Early
Morning Blaze
The house belonging to Tbos. An
derson and occupied hy II. A. Mur
phy and family, caught fire about 0
o'clock Sunday morning and was com
pletely destroyed with all contents
except a little furniture which was
gotten out of the front room. The
fire probably started from tho kitch
en stove, as Mrs. Murphy had arisen
shortly before and started the kitch
en fire, returning to her room to fin
ish dressing. A noise like something
burning was heard and Mr. Murphy
ran out into tho dining room to inves-
logntc and found the room full of
smoke, and the blaze was then unr
dor good headway, and as there was
no water near it was impossible to
check tho flames.
The Murphy family lost prictically
all their furniture nnd clothing, also
a ibrpry that cost about ?G00. Their
loss was partially covered by insur
ance. Mr. Anderson hail some insur
ance on tho house but not enough to
cover his loss.
A very enjoyable evening was spent
