Mountain Climbera. ' 4
The height of Mount Adtitna, n
stated In Profreaor Lytnnn'H article In
lust Sunday's Oiegoninu, Is it genuine
surprise to must people, as he aaserts
thai Mount Adams U at least 1000 feet
higher limn Mount Hood. In order
to more thoroughly determine the
trutli of Ibis, Prot. Ednr McCiure, of
the Tnlversily of Oregon, Is about to
undertake the difficult tusk of convey
ing a mercurial barometer to the top
of Mount Adams. It may not be gen
erally known Unit the aneroid barom
eter usually curried in the mouutian
climbing is not reliable, while the
mercurial barometer la absolutely ac
curate. The lrtter, however, Is ex
tremely awkward to carry, on account
f ita length, and the fact that it must
be always kept upright. The jar caused
by a single mis-step is npt to break it.
Every attempt made to take a mercur
ial barometer to the summit of Ralner
has failed, and triarigulation heretofore
has been unsatisfactory and unreliable,
as the sumnill is a rounded dome, with
no monument on which to focus the
angles. Had a party been stationed
there with a helio.-ruph this difficulty
would have been obviated.
Secretary T. Brook White of Ihe Ma
zamas, says that he carried four aner
oid barmetera up Ralner, but that
when he found out how unreliable
they were he did not cure to make
uhllc the results of his observations.
He says that through Hie efforts of the
Muinmas, the height of Mount Adams
will doubt le"s lie determined beyond
all question, for, in addition, to (he
use of barometers, accurate trinngula

heliograph at the simmlt for a focus

Iu the case of the state vs J R Stock

Two at a Time,
The fifth stage robbery wilhiu Ihe
past three months occurred Tuesday
night near the Topsy grade ou the
Ager-Klamath route. Both the Kla
math Falls bound and the Ager bound
stages were stopped. The driver of
the stage going to Klamath Falls wus
held two hours, awaiting the arrival
of the one going to Ager. The lone
robber rifled the mail pouches, only
taking the registered matter. H. V.

One of A, J, Anderson's legs was
caught in a pully one day last week
near Tillamook, aud pulled off at the

was amputated at the thigh, but Mr.
Andereou was so badly injured that

Eternally Blowing About Salem.
1). E, Swank, of Aumsville, has
been paying sixty cents for wheat for
some- time. At the same time only
forty-four cents was paid in Baletu.
The Post candidly snys: We have a
paper, published lu this city which Is
eternally and incessantly blowing
about what Salem Is doing, To read
it one would suppose that Salem was
the most progressive towu in the
United States. Salem is going to build
factories Salem will soon have addi
tional railroads Salem is extending
her electrict car lines Suleii' is about
extending her motor lines toSllverton,
Independence and other places Salem
wants this and Salem wants that, and
Salem is going to have the devil and
all but those boasts amount to noth
ing. The people have got tired read
ing them, and now they want to see
some of these things accomplished.
The fact that the Salem mill is paylsg
sixteen cents a bushel less for wheat
thau a little town out in the country,
will do the city more harm than all
the purling and blowing of a dozen
newspapers call do her good. Indeed
Sa'em will never amount to any more
than she is until better prices are paid
here for agricultural products thau are
paid in the eutside towns.

George W. Davis, at his beautiful
hillside home inSouth Salem, Bays the
Statesman, has a small retell of
ground from which he Is i king a
crop this year that is full of suggestion
to the farmer who has stock aud wants
good feed for them. It is a two acre
piece of vetches and wheat mixed,
sown last fall with fifty pounds of
vett lies aud one bushel of wheat to the
acre, the yield of which is simply Im
mense. It is really Interesting to see
it. The vetches have mown lo an
average height of six feet and have
branched out so as to make a solid
mass that will turn off perhaps four
tons to the acre. It mukci Mr. Davis
puff to get the scythe through it. And
the best feature is that cattle thrive on
it; another good quality is it grows two
good crops per year. A few acres of
such growth would be profitable on
most any farm.

Mrs. Stanford Wins.
SAN FRANCISCO, June 29.-Judge
Ross, in the United States circuit court
today; sustained the demurrer of Mrs.
Lclttiid Stanford In the suit commen..
ced by the general government against
the estate of the late Senator Stanford
for the recovery of moneys ou ac
count of the Centerul Puclflo railroad
debts. The court sustained the demur
rer on the grounds that individual
stockholders were not liable for tho
debts of the corporation, and while
government was given time in which
to file an amended complaint, It is un
derstood that today's decision praoti
cally kills the case.

CADILLAC, Mich., June 29. Four
weeks ago four or five ladles appeared
upon the streets In bloomer costumes
and such a storm of ridlculi arose that
they never afterward repeated the ex

devotees of the wheel was held when
it was unanimously decided to adopt
bloomers in spite of Mrs. Grundy's
protest, and to appear so attired in the
bicycle parade on July 4. It was fur- '
ther determined to ask police protec
tion against the hoodlums who, on
their first appearance, kept up a con
stant howl or derision, and in several
instances resorted to personal attacks.

To Fight for Their Lands,
A peculiar case Is in the United
St ties land office at Spokane, wherein
the Northern Pacific, in attempting to
oust two Indians, Clio-hot-sln-wah and
Catnille from their homesteads. The
land Is near the town of Valley, a short
distances south of Chewelah. Botii
Indians made homestead entiles for
different pieces of land something over
ten years ago. It was afterward
learned that through a mistake, or the
ignorance of the Indian agent, the two
parcels of land Intended to have iteen
selected by the Indians were oue aud
the same piece. This matter was af
terward adjusted to the satisfaction of
(be Indians, Camllle taking an adjoin
ing piece of land. The present trouble
is owin'j to tlte fact that the Northern
Pacific Railroad company claims the
land as Indemnity land. The evi
dence in the case points out tho fact,
however, that the railroad company
never received their indemnity charter
until years after the land had been so.
