Some Story; Valley Paper Has
Tale Which Is Pure Pipe-dream
A wotl-authentiraled atory comes '
from near Arlington, Oregon, which
runs aa follows: A stranger pasting
through the county stopped about noon
at a large ranch and asked if he could
have dinner. The ' housewife replied
that Bhe was preparing dinner and if he
- would wait he could share the meal.
The man took a scat on the front porch.
The lady left the house momentar
ily on an errand connected with her
meal when the man quietly slipped in
side and taking a bottle containing a
red liquid, poured it into a pot of beans
cooking on the stove. He thought he
was unobserved, but a sick child lay in
an adjoining room, and saw the act of
the stranger. When the mother came
in the child revealed to her what he
had seen, and when the husband and
furm hands reported for dinner the
secret was made known to them also.
At firBt it was thought to have the
stranger arrested, but they decided to
handle the matter in a different way.
Nothing was said oponly and they sat
down to dinner. The beans were first
pmsed to the stranger, who declined to
partake, saying that hfcVpever ate

from under the table a pistol and point
ing it at the stranger said: "This is
the time when you eat beans." The
man was reluctant to partake but did
so. In fifteen minutes he was taken
aick and in an hour he was dead. The
men went to the county Beat and told
the officers of the law what had hap
pened. The reply was that they were
to go back to their work and the proper
authorities would take care of the body.
These facts were conveyed by a neigh
bor of the family to a relative in this
city and the truth of the story is un
doubted for this reason. The evident
purpose of the man wan to kill several

production of the crop on a large farm.
