Only a Joke.
Salem Statesman. Oct. 18th: Tim
city of Dallas was thrown into a little
excitement last evening by the escape
of Fred Brown from the county jail at
that place, and the latter proved to be
only a joke on Sheriff H. B. Plummer.
Some time ago Brown effected his
escape from the jail and eluded the
officers until he reached Laue county,
where he was discovered near Rucenu
and captured. Sheriff Plummer went
utter Krown and returned him to bis
quarters in the jail. After getting
Brown safely under lock and key, the
Bheriff made the remark that he
would give him $100 if he could iet.
out again," Yesterday Brown had
some callers, and in the course of their
conversation one of them offered
Brown $250 to pick the lock in their
presence. This he did successfully by
means of a tin key he had made. The
sheriff" hen concluded that it was time
m put a uew iock on me door, and
Immediately proceeded to a hardware
store and purchased oue. It was
wnne lie was attending to this matter
that Brown picked the lock for the
third time and to all appearances mys
teriously disappeared. The news ot
his escape Bpread like wild-fire, and
while deputies were being sent in all
directions to search for Brown, and
the whole town talkine about him. he
quietly walked ltitp the sheriffs office
ana aenverea Himself up, saying that

The Troy, New York, Times says:
"The discovery has been made lu Ore
gon that wheat fed pork brings 10c per
1O0 more than corn-fed. The product
of wheat feeding is what Is called
breakfast bacon, or thin, lean side
meat, which cannot be obtained from
the corn-fed hog, because it is too fat.
Anybody who finds It impossible to
buy any hut soft, fat,' greasy pork in
his horns market is likely to Insist that
the difference of 10 cents per 100 is not
enough; indeed, he would gladly pay
another cent per pound, especially if
he lias children, as they almost invar
iably reject the fat. With wheat down
to the price of corn, and the discovery
that wheat-fed pork is more wholesome
aud agreeable than that which is fat
tened on com, pumpkins, apples, skim

that a new era in pork-ritlsing will
eventually be inaugurated,"

Not So Much as Supposed.
It is likely that the defalcation of a
clerk under U.S. Marshal In Alaska,
Mr. O. T. Porter, of Albany will not
amount to as much as reported, A
San Francisco dispatch says: New
has been recieved here of the arrest ut
Hitka of Adolpfe Meyer deputy mur. hiil
and confidential clerk of United
States Marshal Porter, for embezzle
ment. The warrant was sworn out l,v
the United States district attorney,
and an investigation is now being hull.
It js said that Meyer has made n
confession. J.t appears that when
Marshal, Porter went out of office he
left several checks signed in blank.
These, according to the story, Iho
deputy passed and filled in for various
umouuts. It Is believed the defalca
tion will, however, only amount to
some huudreds of dollars. Meyer

. The Prune Market.
A Portland man, in speaking of the
prune market, urges growers to griido
their fruit, as thereby they ean.sell
them much better. He says: MTbe
hope of Oregon shippers Is the scarcity
of large size, both of foreign and Cali

unable to fill the order-"
In the matter of establishing a date
for the sale of the Oregon Pacific n il
