Life Saddened Seen.
The Pendleton East-Oregonian re
lates one of the sad incidents with
which human life and experience
abounds: Thursday last there arrived
at Adams an old man named Welch
with an unpretentious tented show.
He had a bear, a couple of white owls,
and an attraction that really was a
curiosity, a little womau who weighed
thirty-six pounds, was thirty-two
inches in statute, and had lived thirty
three years. Although a dwarf she
was not deformed in any manner, her
body being proportionately de
veloped. Tbe little woman was a sufferer
from Bickuees. and Frirlav nio-lit
hemorbage occurred that caused her
aeatn. A soniewnat sad and painful
story then came to lieht. Her. name
was Miss M.J. Welch, and she was
te old man's daughter. He bad sen
sitively kept her concealed all her life
until within the last two months,
when, being no longer able to earn a
livelihood, he was compelled to exhibit
her. They left Idaho, where they
lived, and have since been traveling.
As the father, who Is seventy years
old, had no funds, the county authori
ties were notified, aud will take in
hand the burial of that unfortunate
An Immense Hop Crop.
The prospect for Oregon is as prom
ising as has ever been known by local
dealers, and this year's orop will far
exceed that of 1892. Aoording to care
ful estimaes, based on the reports of
the growers, a prominent dealer of
Portland estimates the yield this year
at 42,000 to 46,000 bbshels. Last year's
crop was 29,000. Theodore Bernheim,
the hop and wool dealer, says that
the grow crop is In a erowinsr eonrll.

generous, vindictive, woman.
Before she had finished halt the

Palmer used her gavel vigorously and
called in vain for order, but the excit

pandemonium reigned supreme. Bar
ing all the uproar Mrs. Ball stood
perfectly calm, smiling se

restored she repeated the sentcnee.
Then tbe uproar was renewed and
continued for some time.
Mrs. Ball finally took her seat and
