muted his sentence. Ho was sent up from
Portland for a term of three yeara and besjan
service in July, 1887. Ho was convicted of
the embezzlement of $3000 fro n the C. 1".
K., of which ocmpany he was the froight
agent at Portland. When it was discovered
I hat he was short in his accounts he fled to
British Columbia and remained several
months. During this time his young if
secured a divorce. Remorse preyod upon the
erring youog man to such an extent that be
came to Portland and gave himself up and
was sentenced as above. After his incarcera
tion the wife came to this city to reside and
immediately began working to secure his
pardon. This she accomplished, snd they
are now together. Ho sees the folly of his
past life and starts again with good resolu
tions, admitting that it is through the fidel
ity and untiring energies of his divorced,
though faithful, wife that the commutation
was gi anted. The sequel is in a mwriage
license being to-day issued by County Clerk
Babcock to Clarence P Dixon and Miss Annie
W Harbin. They are to be quietly married
this evening and will leave hy to-morrow
morning's trsiu for Nevada, where their fu
ture lot will be cast. Salem Journal.

This is no exception. The rattle of knives

A Cool Woman-. Mrs. A. T. Hershner,
of Corvallis, was In the stage recently rob
bed nt Templcton, California. Besides
herself and children were three gentlemen.
Mrs. II. writes to her husband at Corvallis
a graphic account of the exciting affair
published in the Times. When the driver
halted, on being ordered by the robber to
io so, he told them there was a lady and
her two children inside, to which the high
wayman replied that he would not harm
them but wanted the men to "pile out" and
throw up their "props," which they very
unhesitatingly did after making Mrs.
Hershner the custodian of their watches
and disposing of their money which was
done In very short order. The robber then
drew caps over their eyes and proceeded
to 6carch them. He secured some loose
change and then went to the coach door
and suked Mrs. II. if she did not have their
money, to which she replied "no sir." Mrs
Hershner had about $30 in her purse, be
sides the valuables entrusted to her by the
other passengers and it was perhaps due to
her courage and presence of mind that
they cscahed the clutches of the tnief. The
express boa" was about all that was gotten.
Raymond McIlwaix. At the resi
dence of Mr A B Mcllwain, at 10 o'clock
this forenoon, Mr Walter H Raymond, as
sistant secretary of the Albany Farmers' &
Merchants' Insurance Company, and Miss
Mamie Mcllwain, were united in marriage,
Rev E R Prichard performing the cere
mony. Though private it was a very nice
and happy event. Mr and Mrs Raymond
left on the noon train for a trip to Port
land and the Sound country. The happy
couple have the Democrat's best wishes
for a long life of happiness and prosperity.
Discontented. He was fresh from the
Oregon Pacific front and had sold his time
check for 15 per cent discount. In sten
torian tones he advised a crowd of men
near him to slip out of a country so blasted
mean its to do things like that, and by this
time he is probably on his way from the
frying pan towards the fire. We know
nothing about this case; but there are a
great many men who spend their lives step
ping out from under the influence of im
position, and as a result they never have a
cent ahead. Those who "stay with it" are
the ones who don't I.ve to have time
checks discounted for 15 per cent off.
