SPECULATIONS ON THE
A great majority of the peopbi
everywhere, possibly a. many a. nine
out of ten, have accepted the belief
that Dr. BrumtleW killed Dennis Kus
.ell. To suppose that he did this de
liberately require one to tttuk that
Pr. Brumfield purposed to hide away
from bia family for a long time, per
haps for the rest of hi life, and begin
a different manner of life in some
distsnt place. It seems to be con
cluded by these person, that second
ary purpose of bia was to hare th
body of Russell taken tor bis own, so
that hi. family mijfl.t collect some
thousand. of .dollar, of life lusurance.
He could receive no beoefit from this,
unless his family, at some future
tlma. come to him and shared his
concealment, and that he should not
be discovered by that mean. In sup
port of this theory some person, have
been unkind enough to suggest that
Brnmfreld's wife was a party to thl.
plot. To suppose that the killing of
Russell was a part of a complicated
scheme like this i. to suppose that
Bntmfld killed a man whom he had
no other reason for killing, merely
because te warned a body that he
could palm off as his own. a-nd Rus
sell's body, with the head removed,
would look somewhat like his own.
To believe all this Is a powerful
strain on the imagination, and would
not bo likely to receive much cre
dence If there was any other plausible
theory to put in place of It.
Perhaps nine out of hen of tte re
maining one-tenth believe that Rus
sell killed Bruiufield. This seems ?o
be the theory held by Mrs. Brum
field and other of BruuifieWs friend-'.
In that case, the ouiy motive suggest
ed is that of robbery. Brumfield is
supposed to have had on Ms person
that night anywhere from $500 to
$2800. If Russell killed Brumfield.
why should he resort to the burning
of the car and explosive? It is con
ceivable that he might Lave done it
to direct suspicion very much as it
has been directed.
Tne shooting, either before or aftr
the burning, might be as reasonable
in the one case as the other. Besides
all these points, it should not be for
gotten that no one .knows what may
have come up between the two men
that evening, that precipitated a mur
der that was not premeditated. In
such a case, the elaborate scheme
worked out afterwards may, contrary
to appearances, have been an after
thought. Ttere Is a third theory, not held by
very many, but stubbornly Insisted
on by a few In Springfield, that the
murder wu the work of a third roan.
In that case, this man must have dls
posed of both Brumfield and Russell.
No trai of a second body ha. been
found. It might be the policy of the
murderer. In such a cane, to allow only
one "ftody to be discovered, and tl at
nnder conditions that wouM direct
nsplcton to one or the other of th

I that trey have dues which they ar
not giTlug out. It would be natural
that they should claim that whether
they have or not. We do not belbeve
'itiai inv credence Is to be riven to
any of the reported appearance, of

posed to have burnt hi. own car. and
escaped some otter way. It would be

If Brumfield was the murder. It is
not likely that he Is within a those

We are ready to believe that Ore
gon can produce almost anything.
We were reeding, this week, with an
amateur scientist's Interest, tte story
that the enforced cohabitation of a
rooster and a hen turkey had pro
duced a hybrid fowl which Is half
rooster and half gobbler. If it had
been ralf gobbler and half hen, we
should not have been a bit surprised.
We were swallowing the story,
stralght-up. on the half and half shell,
as we read. We had not choked on
tre combination of wattles and comb
We had Just about downed the state
ment that the node ripe had a cry
which commenced with a crow ant
ended with a gobble, when we cauglt
a glimpse of the closing and crowning
statement that it was four days old.
Then we found our credulity strained
jo the cracking point. We suspect
that a third party had a hand In tie
production of this wonderful bird.
Our guess is that he was half man anJ
about lalf liar.
