that announced the mobilization of the
army ' reserves and the summoning of

Tha Barbaric Act of a Polish Woman
at Bucoda.
Seattle, Oct. 9. A special from Bu
coda save: A most deliberate and bar-
bario attempt at sucide occurred at this
place yesterday. Mrs. Leo Prabuski, a
Polish woman, became angered at
some little aomesuo occurreucu u
determined to do away with her life.
She procured an ordinary hatpin six
inches long and drove the pin into her
stomach through the navel, l'ressing
hard against the pin, she drove it until
it could go no farther, as it had lodged
in the spine. Then, with the intention
ot forcing the pin out at the back, she
procured a rusty darning needle ana
drove this into what she thought was
the hole made by the hat pin. Not
until 12 o'clock last night did she tell
any one what she hail done.
Today Mr. Prabuskl repented ot her
act. and accompanied the Bucoda phy-
lOlan to this city, where Dr. Uedpath
removed the pin and needle. Dr. Red-
path thinks she will live. She is 48
year old and has 19 children, five of
whom are living.

penalty of the law, which is death.
Only one of the prominent leader wai

in these cases nor is any reason offered
for the arrests. The sensation is all
the greater because there have been no
indications of an uprising against Presi

Dangers of Whalehuntlng,
San Francisco, Oct. 7. The officer!
ofthe whaler Delate u tell of the terrible
fate of Oscar Hnachenbett, a aailot, in
the Arctic. On August 26, 1898, the
boats were lowered for an enormoui
whale. Just after a harpoon had been
fixed in the whale' side and he had
started off at tremendous speed, IIus-
chenbett stepped carelessly into the
rope's bight. A loop caught his leg
and he was drawn into the water, in
passing out of the boat the body of the
man hurled itself against Third Mate
Nikito and one of the crew, knocking
both overboard. The mate scrambled
np and slashed the rope into with his
knife. Then began a chase for the
whale and the body of the man. For
three hours the monster raced and sank
to the bottom before he could be lanced
and the sailors' body recovered,

The Oregon Industrial Exposition.
which is now in full blast at Portland,
Is the most successful enterprise of its
kind ever held in the Northwest.
Everything about it is on a grand
scale, as well it may be, for no ex
pense has been spared to make every
thing connected with it first-class in
every respect. To accomplish this re
sult it was necessary to invest $12,000
as a starter, and this amount was
quickly forthcoming. The enterprising
business men of Portland went down
into their pockets and produced the
cash, for they recognize the fact that
the fair is a great object-lesson, an
educator, and instructor an enterprise
that benefits the entire Northwest
The products of every section of the
Northwest are freely given place in tin
exposition at Portland, and the mines,
farms, fields, factories, forests and nan
eries all make a grand showing, and
there are grains and grasses that any
part of the world may lie well proud of.
Colonel II. C. Dosch. Col. R. C. Judaon
and Louis M. Spiegl have collected to
gether and have on exhibition thou
lands of specimens of grains and grasses
and fruits and vegetables raised in the
Northwest, all of which make a splen
lid showing for thi rich region.
Among the many things seen at the
exposition in Portland may be men
tioned the mining exhibit. Tons of
ore. all showing iust where it came
from and its value is shown, having
been collected by J. P. Marshall, and
there is a reproduction of a quarts
mine, with its big timbers, shafts and
tunnels, built by J. F. Batchelder, of
the Portland Railway Co.. who is a
practical mining engineer.
In a large illuminated cave is a com
plete fish hatchery, in which young sal
mon may be plainly seen in all afe'ges
of hatching out, and there ia a lull-
grown Royal Chinook salmon always
on exhibition.
There are a great many sights to see

great crowds and will run all the time
to the closing, October 28.
Portland is a very attractive oity t
visit, and it has such a splendid street
car system that the stranger can see
the business section, the attractive
homes and the splendid suburbs all on
a single 5 cent fare, while comfortably
seated in open electrio cars. Two car
lines pass the door of the great exposi

do is to take a car which is plainly

The war museum, which is under
the direct supervision of Captain E. S.
Edwards, Colonel D. M. Dunne and
General O. Summers, is a grand sight
to see. It was the carrying out of a
brilliant idea suggested by Dan Mo-
Allen, ono of Portland's most patriotio
and enterprising business men, and it
will be the means of adding many dol
lars to the fund being raised to the
Oregon volunteers who lost their live
during the recent wars.
The immense exposition building at
Portland has been vastly improved in
very part of its interior, and is gay
with flags and bunting, and at night
presents a scene of splendor rarely
