A old relic, In the shape of a beaver
trap, was recently found by William
Blachley on Lake creek, and is now
on exhibition in Eugene. The trap
evidently was lost or left along the
banks of Lake creek in the early days
possibly by an employe of the Hud
son Bay Company, in the days before
this state was settled by white men.
That the trap has been lost for many
yeare Is evidence by the fact that parts
of it are almost rusted away. The
springs are rusted as thin as paper,
aud are broken. The frame and the
bit are also rustedvery thin.

some threats, Baker drew a pistol aud

claims that he only intended to
frighten Day, but, coupled with the
threats made, it makes quite a serious

and honey hunting expedition last
week, and came home with a good
colony of bees and about 100 pounds of
honey, all of which they found in a
big, black oak tree, on the mountain

Two Views of Pensions.
"There may be fair differences of
opinion as to the extent and con
ditions of pension relief, but there Is
no room for doubt as to pensions,"
writes ex-President Harrison in the
November Ladies' Home Journal
"This Country of Ours" article.
"Eleven dollars a month for war
services implies, at least, relief in case
of wounds or sickness for the soldier,
and that the public will care for his
widow and minor children. When the
law of pillage prevailed it was other
wise; and when our rich men take to
fighting our, wars we can abolish the
pension system, hut tints far it is as
historically true of the armies that
won our independence, delivered us
from the Indians and the British, and
saved the nation in Die great Civil
War, as of t lie Kingdom of Heaven:
'not many rich.' There arc two views
of the pension question one trout the
'Liltle Round Top' at Gettysburg,
looking out over a field sown thickly
with tiiedeml.aiid around upon bloody,
blackened and maimed men cheering
the shot-torn banner of their country;
the other form an olliee desk on a
busy street, or from an endowued
chair in a university, looking only
upon a statistical table."

Madame Emma Calve contributes a
pnp.'r on the "Conquering Race in
M usic" to the November Ladies Home
Journal, In which she specially ad
dresses students of vocal music. She
tells of the training required for the
operatic and the concert stage, the Im
personation of character, the value of
suggestions, etc., and says this tribute
to Americans: "The Americans have,
it seems to me, in the field of music,
and especially in the field of vocal
music, all of the characteristics ot the
conquering race. They are possessed
naturally of the most exquisite voices,
which, when properly cultivpted and
trained, are "almost unrivaled; they
have indomitable energy, perseverance
and pluck; they stop at nothing, are
deterred by no trouble and prevented
by no obstacle. Poverty, wearinass,
oxertion, hard work none of these
living spectres which affright and
terrify the average art worker has
terrors for them. Their physique and
and their temperament seem made for
toil and to surmount discouragement,
and the success which they are daily
acheiving, in the field of both operatic
and concert singing, is testimony to
their natural fitness for accomplish
ment, and to their ability to excel.
They seem, in fact, to be most lavishly
fitted by nature for the parts tfiey are
assuming. To these gifts of voice,
energy, pluck and perseverance they
frequently add a beauty of face and
grace of form and movement which
the public recognizes as most important
factors in the success of the singers
career. They have, too, the tempera
ment which makes great artists aud
great actresses, the artistic feeling
which lias for its standpoint, perfec
tion, and which is satisfied with noth
