Mrs. Haunah, now confined in the

Lamb, of Clackamas county. One

his breakfast, and when he sat down
to partake of it she slipped out tn the
woodpile, secured the ax, and, coming
up behind him, split his bead open.

neighbor. For this he was tried, con
victed and sentenced to two years aud

Stneltzer was brought over from
Washington county on a four years'
committment for burglary. John Do
man was given his freedom, as hie
two years' term for forgery, committed
in Marion county, had expired.
