FOUR HEAD TAKEN FRP L A.
DUDLEY'S E!0 HERD
Taken to Walla . Walla and
.With .-Plausible Plea, Two
Teams Sold for $350. :-.
Two spins of the best moles in the
E. A. Dudley Gttiog, were stolen from
the Geld Monday night and taken to
Walla Walla, where they were sold
by the thief for $350. Mr. Dudley
was ia Walla Walla Tuesday when
his males were sold, but of oonrse did
not know of i at the time. The
sheriff of Walla Walla county went
over and looked at the animals, : was
Balisfied tbey bad been stolen and
awaited word as to tbeir ownership,
so when Mr. Dudley discovered bis
loss the moles were easily located.
The thief whose a identity ia now
known to the officers, told a plausible
tale of being a Pomeroy farmer who
was about to he closed out nnder mort
gage and said if he could sell the
moles he could pay the interest and a
portion; of the" principal, whn bis
creditor would extend the time on the
balance. The moles were taken to a
livery stable and were sold to a con
ple of lanobers. One of the teams was
yet in the barn when Mr. Dudley and
Jinks Taylor went to locate them.
The " other team bad been taken into
the country by the purchaser, y,
The theft was one of the boldest
perpetrated in this section f or many
years. The fellow bad a Bore lip,
and informed bystanders that be bad
been kicked iu the month by a cow,
and it ia said that the fact has devel
oped that he told the truth. It is
known that the orlioeis know bim, and
the only obstacle now in the - way of
bis 'capture is merely to locate the
thief.. ' - , ' . - ' i ..

The Way the English Poet Received
. Ralph Waldo Emerson.
When Emerson, the "great American
writer, came to- England be paid a ris
It to Wordsworth, says nn English
magazine. Wordsworth had Just re
turned from a journey-and was in his
garden writing a poem on what he bad
Been. The visitor found the great poet
a white haired, tall; sparely fcuilt man,
of a rugged, rustic type wita nothing,
unless it were the fine eyes. bJ bint of
the poet ' , 'i I ''.'".-..', '""'i,::J'-:-.r :'
Words worth 1 made no ceremony over
the visit of the man from a far land,
but said Instantly when be was called
to greet bim, "If you are Interested in
my poetry perhaps you will like to
bear these lines." Emerson politely
agreed, and this is what happened.
Emerson has himself written the. story
down -f 01 us. The' old. poet thought
for a few moments, then stood forth
and repeated with great animation an
entire poem he had written ! (; "
"The recitation." the American phi
losopher wrote afterward, "was so on
looked for and surprising Words
worth standing apart and reciting to
me in a garden walk, like a schoolboy
declaiming that at first I was neartd
laughing; but, recollecting myself that
I had come thus far to see a poet and J
he was chanting poems to me, 1 snw
that he was right and thnt I wns
wrong and, I gladly gave myself up
to hear.' . . ' '

Trained Eagles Art feed by the Tar

. There are many ways of bunting tho
wolf In Russia, some .very curious and
exciting and others as tame as target
practice. The most sportsmanlike way
la by,: means of hounds, and all over
Russia today there are well to do
sportsmen who hunt tbe animal-in this
fashion. Wolves are also taken in pit
falls and shot, white' still another, way
is to drive in. a slpfph through the for
est In time of hard frost,; when the
Wolves are bold with hunger. At the
back of the sleigh one or more sports-'
men lie snugly under their fur rugs
with their rifles ready. A young p' r is
can-led in the sleigh, and it3 cries soon
reach the cars of the- lurking wolves,
Who cannot resist following the blelgb
and are speedily shot.

The present rate of mortality of tlie

times that of the farmer. - Respiratory

greater differences. ' ; .
The age statistics In the trade ara
startling. Of 1,751' 'brass foundryraen
but seventeen over fifty, years of ftga
w-ere found and a' bare 200 over" forty"
years of age. When asked the cause
of this ; officials invariably stated:
"Tbey got too old. Tiey can't turn
out the work they should every day."
But what sort of an industry is this In
' which nearly six-sevenths of its 'fol
lowers are too old at tho age ofjtorty?
It Is not thus among lronmolders, most
of whom are bate and hearty even at
sixty years and still able to turn out
their full quota of work daily. ' Work
men claim they "are knocked out by
