The recent forest fires in Green

It is bad enough lor one man to
sing another when be is sober, but
when a man slugs another whom
he knows to be prank, and has
been drank for weeks, and deals
him such a blow as to cause bis
death, he deserves severe punish
ment. It would not only be a
lesson to him, bat would have a
wholesome - effect rn fighting.
Such men as Fitzsimmons are
of no good to the. world anyhow.
The Silverton Appeal jay: An
exchange thinks there will be a
bitter contest against the re-enactment
of the mortgage tax exemp

large majority of the legislators
ware elected pledged to the re-en-aitment
of these laws, the room for
a contest does not seem very clear.
But generally bankers and money
lenders advance "solid" and "weigh

the average legislator that their

One Mr. Simon, a teamster, lived In
East Eugene last spring. A tramp
came along and stole a set of harness
nf him. The tramp sold the name,
which be had atoned In a seek, to one
McFarland tor $1. McFarland snld

Mr. Bangs sold to Wm Tarsons tbe

Mr. Simutie who has been away-frora

Eugene and happened to reoarnlae

Parsons got his 18.60 back from Bangs
and when McFarland pays Bangs the

All parties are satisfied as each had

Closed For Good. .
Tuesday the Portland Baring Bank
closed agalu; tbu time for good. The
directors have concluded to wind op
the affaire of thh institution. Upon a
petition tiled by Cleveland Rockwell
nne of the directors, Judge Stearns has
appointed Hon. O. K. Denny, receiver.
It is impossible to state what per cent
the depositors will receive. It times
were good, real estate eould be dis
posed te advantage, so very little loss
would be sustained to the creditors.
As it is tbe chances of getting full
pay is slim indeed. Many poor
people will suffer this winter on ac
count of this unfortunate transaction
aud many a family will go hungry
because their earnings are shut np in
that defunct institution. If' the next
legislature want to do a good act; let
them pass a decent banking law, to
protect depositors . from rascally
officials and bank failures. Dispatch.

There was s imitation at Phlhsnatb
lust Thumday, writes "Jacob," when
the O. P. truin arrived, with the cot par
of Mrs. Frankie Peterson. Although
he had died at five o'clock the day
previous, her hands were still warm
and limber, Tbe strange phenomenon
caused many to doubt whether the
case wss one of death, or only suspen
ded animation. Far a long period
friends stood around tbe still form and
watched and wished for some sign of
returning life, nut all in vain. The
body was kept until two o'clock Fri
day, when the hands became cold aud
rigid, and tbe remains were consigned
to a grave in tbe Newton cemetery.
State Teachers' Association.
The executive committee of tbe
State Teachers' Assoeatioh -have
determined to bold the annual con
vention of teachers at Portland,
December 26th, 27th, and 28th. Tbe
committee extends a cordial and
earnest invitation to the teachers of
Linn county to attend and aid in
advancing the Interests of the publle
schools'. The committee on trans
portation will secure good rates over
the railways. It is requested that all
teachers of this county who will
probably attend the convention, send
their names to this office.
A- B. BlTBBBFORD,
Mo Horse Market.
J. W. Howard, of Manilla, says
that there're more horses in Eastern
Oregon than human inhabitants, and
that they are running wild, and In
many instances are unclaimed. The
boras market is utterly demoralised,
according to Mr. Howard. Several
years ago there was more money in
horses than cattle, hut during the
past five years gnat change has
taken place in these conditions. Now
there Is scarcely any demand what
ever for horses, and ths breeder in
Eastern Oregon has tamed bis at
tention to other pursuits, Ex.

How The Chinese Do Things.
Everything relating to the Orient,
where a terrible war is being waged
uow between China and Japan is of
Interest. . We would all like to see
these people follow the example of the
civilised nation In later years and set
tle the difficulties without murder and
bloodshed. But these heathen nations
are just the opposite even in their way
if doing common things. Tbe Chinese
do everything backward. They exactlj
reverse the usual order of civiliiition.
Note first thrt the Chinese compass
points to the south instead of north.
The men wear Skirts and the women
The men wear their hair long and
the women wear It short.
The men carry on dressmaking and

Goo l Roads and Wide Tin Wagons,
Mr. V. D. ritearns, in th Orange
Judd Farmer, has some practical re
marks ou tbe above Questiin,as follows:
"When will the public wake up to
thla important change? Not until
there is a law to compel those who use
narrow tires te make change. 1 have
a large amount of road to repair and I
find it Impossible In certain localities
to keep a good road when heavy teams
with uarrow tires are lu constant use.
Mansfield, Ct, join tbe city of Willi-
mantle and there is no railroad, ex
cepting on the west side; consequently
all the lumber and supplies from tbe
north and east of the towns adjoining
are hauled through Willimantic
dome teams carry 8,tM0 pounds with
two inch tires. They cut our roads all
to pieces and do not pay a cent of tax.
If heavy teams were compelled to use
four inch tire and those carrying s ton
or less three Inch tire, the roads eould
be kept In good condition. In locali
ties where the wide tire is used the
condition of the road is much better.

be readily brought about by legislative
