Where is Wm. S. Jones?
John W. Coots, attorney-at-law, In a
letter dated at Platte City, Missouri,
March 7, and addressed to Secretary
of State Kincaid at Salem, Or., says:
"One Thomas Jones, late of Platte
county, Missouri, died at this place
about five years ago, aged 104 years,
and left several hundred dollars for his
son, William S. J mes, in his last will.
William 3. Junes was here about ten
years ago, but returned to Oregon,
where he had been residing for many
years. He has not been heard from
since his return to Oregon, and there
has been no one to claim the money.
It Is still safe and will be paid to him
or his children, If he left any, upon
pnsifof his o.- their Id nilty. All the
required legal publications have been
made in vuin; but as such publications
are usually mude in papers ot luc il cir
culation, they were not calculated to
reach him or his heirs In Oregon.
Thomas Jones was a soldier and a peti
tioner of the war nf 1S13. If you will
kindly give this matter to the press of
your state I feel that it will be gener
ously published, and might be the
means of helping some worthy ami
needy citizen of your state very ma
terially. Very truly,
Jno. W. Coots."

At an early hour Sunday morning
John Pentnger made a murderous as
sault upon James G. Elliott, at the
front entrance of tin) hotel in Central
Point (Jackson county).., A dance had
been Iu progress during the night iu
the hall at the hotel and had just
broken up and the participants were
in the act of leaving the building and
when young Elliott, who bad just
come down stairs, started to go out of
the door, Peuinger put bis left hand
on Elliott's shoulder and without a
word of warning plunged a dagger In
to his breast. Thero were several per
sons standing near, among whom was
the town marshal, and as soon as lie
realized what had taken place he ar
rested Penlnger, but in doing so was
obliged to call for assistance, as Pen
inger's friends' soon gathered around
him and had not assistance arrived
the arrest would have been prevented.
As it was, Barton Patrick, who the
marshal claimed was the leader pre
venting bim from arresting Peuinger,
was arrested as an accessory to the
The knife used by Penlnger was a
two-edged dagger with a three and
one-half inch blade and it entered the
breast at the juncture of the sixth rib,
aud must have ranged downward. As
soon as possible Dr. Patterson was
called aud rendered medical aid, and
by daylight the patient was consider
ably improved, and lias gained rapidly
since and is now out of all danger,
Penlnger was arrainged before Jus
tice Jacobs and waived examination
and was held without bail to await the
action of the grand jury. Patrick also
appeared before Jusl ice Jacobs and had
his bearing postponed tin 111 Monday,
at which time he was discharged by
motion of Deputy Prosecuting Attor
ney A. N. Soliss. Wm. M. Colvig ap
peared as Patrick's ttttorney,
It was rumored that the crime was
carefully planned, and that S. P. Con-
roy, a traveling salciman, had heard
the pluns laid, but when placed on the
stand could not Identify the prisoners,
and his testimony w is not admitted.
Elliott came to this valley about two
years ago from Canada, and worked
for Pcnlngcr's father, David Peuinger,
until last August, when the yiung
men got into a dispute, and Peuinger
attempted to stab E.llott with a pocket
knife, and succeeded in cutting a gash
six inches long across his abdomen.
Elliott has since worked near Tolo. He
Is a well respected young man, twenty
years of age aud bus no relatives in
Peninger's plea will be insanity. He
has been subject to epileptic fits for
eleven years past, and this, it Js
claimed has greatly affected his mind.
His father has been a resident of Jack
son county since '62, and Is a well
respected citizen, and his many friends
very much regret the action of his sou.

Phosphorus in War.
The Cuban Insurrectionists are de
termined Unit the planter shall not
grind his sugar cano whilo the war Is
and if he attempts to do it his
plantation is to be burned. The Idea
is to paralyze trade, show the powei
they wield, nnd perhaps secure the
intervention of a strong power. Under
any circumstances it means ruin to
most of the planters, whose crops aro
now ripe for cutting and very com
bustible, But the Interesting part is the meth
od the Cubans are said to have adopt
ed, which is distinctly novel. A small
piece of phosphorus coated with wax
is fastened to a snake's tail, and tho
creature let loose to make Its way
among I he cano. The sun melts the
wax and ignites the phosphoius, and
the business is done. Military protec
tion or oilier efforts are claimed to be
unavailing in the face of such a for
midable foe. Popular Science News.
