R. H. Tyson, of Middleton, was last

having, more than two years ago,
forged the names of his wife, mother-in-law
and father-in-law, to a mortgage
on land held by Mrs. Tyson, but on
which her parents held a lile lease.
The note which Tyson secured by this
mortgage was for $1,000. The defend
ant waived examination, and was held
to await the action of the grand jury.
Mr. Tyson served one term us
representative in the state legislature,
and was state senator from 1879 to 1883.
H. H. Plough, of Davenport, Wash.,
has a well on his property which acts
in a peculiar manner. It is 48 feet
deep, and contains two feet of water.
Every winter it freezes over, and even
forms a thin layer of ice on Its surface
long before there is any occasion for it
thai may le accounted for by a lower
ing of temperature, The other morn
ing he allowed the full momentum of
a 4x4 scanning, eight feet long,' at
tached to a rope, to fall upon the ice
several times from the top of the well,
and the effort failed to break the ice.
Mr. Barber, who lives on the adjoining
property, has a well of the same depth,
which, these cold mornings, emits
steam, so a correspondent of the Spo
kane Spokesman-Review says.

OREGON'S GREAT LAKE.

little has been known until quite re

Crater lake is located iu Southern
Oregon on the Summit of the Cascade
range of mountains, and until recently
it has been visited by very few travel-
ere. Though it had long been known
by the Indians, it was first seen by
white men in 1853. Ten years ago
this body of water was carefully ex
plored and surveyed by members of
the United States geographical survey.
The lake takes its name from the fact
that it occupies what was once an im
mense volcajo crater, but which has
been extinct for a long time, perhaps
thousands of years. Tills sheet of
water is entirely surrounded by pre-
oipitoiis rocks, which tower above the
lake, and whose summits are fully
eight thousand feet above the level of
the sea. The lake is six miles long and
four miles wide, and ranges in depth
from 1,600 to 2,000 feet. It is only
with the greatest difficulty that the
lake can be descended and the water
The United States fish commission
has late been engaged in an investiga
tion nf this lake, the object being to
determine whether or uot trout can
exist In its waters. The commission
has arrived at a favorable conclusion,
the greatest trouble being that the im
mense depth of the water may make It
impossible for the fish to find spawn
ing places. Nevertheless the lake will
be stocked with trout, as It is found to
contain an abundant supply of fish
foods. Fish ought to flourish there,
and the probable solo reason why they
have not, lies in the fact that they
have never been planted in these

Again to Mr. Stayer: Ah there, you
old blow-hard. I see you take great
pleasure in critloising my spelling as
well as some of the items I have writ
ten. I will say in the beginning I do
not claim perfection as you do, for I
have never been to Yale or Princeton.
As to my spelling, I will say that mis
takes will happen in the best of fami
lies, as It has In yours when you think
that by signing your name "stayer,"
end calling my attention to the fact,
you thought to blurt me out of my cor
responding. You even mentioned Hie
basket statistics, as you term them. I
will say that I gave it as it was given
to me, and if they were not correct It
waa not a fault of mine. I do not wish
to criticise, as itshowsawonderfnl dis
play of ill breeding, but as you have
cast the first stone, I will adopt the
golden rule, "Do others or they'll do
you." jnow you say William Fronk
wn elected vice president of the Lit
erary ' society, and that J. D. Fronk
was elected marshal, which is not a
fact in either case. How does it come,
Stayer, that you gtt things so badly
mixed up? You further stated that
Mrs. Farrier lost a fine horse recently.
As you insist on this being a "coolest
of education," please gWe us the defi
nition of "recently." Mrs. Farrier lost
a horse two months ago, a fact which
was communicated to the Express by
myself. I would further ask- you not
to copy without giving oredit or with
out consent. You not only insulted
me by calling the Tennessee choir
"punk," but you have insulted some
of Tennessee's most learned and re
spected ladles, something a gentleman
would not dn. As to contradictions,
Mr. Stayer, I advise you to go hack to
your own writings for them. I wish
to remind you of one of your great con- ,
tradictions. You say in regard to my
kick on your "rotten republican
slang," "The untarnished principles
of the true Bryan democracy as repre
sented by yourself and accomplice
from New York, David B. Hill." This
is contradictory, to be sure. Anyone
kuows, that has common sense, that if
was a supporter of W.J. Bryan it
would be an impossibility for me to be
an accomplice of D. B. Hill. You say
"iu two breaths I make a contradic
tion," and now If you do deny this
being a contradiction made in oio
breath, you are not responsible for
your form r actions. I would say that
the public understands my political
standing, as you would if you had a
teaspoouful of brains. Mr. Stayer, I
advise you to take au excursion to the
"planet Mars," and leave this vicinity
soon. I am quite willing lo let the
publicjudge between you and myself
as to my prose being rotten. ' We hope
you will compose the next poem you
write, as the one you decomposed was
more punky than you represented the
choir to be. No, you will not have to
carry your brains around in a cocoa
nut; it would be inconvenient, as you
would have to lose too much time
hunting for them when needed. We
would suggest your mamma's thimble
as a more suitable vessel, Iu which, by
the assistance of Edison's X-Rajs in
the bauds of an assistant, you might
be able to detect particles of brain mat
ter if you had plenty of time. For
rascality and falsifying, you are the
capslieaf of all Tennessee, a fact in
which the neighborhood in general
will agree with me. If you had the
least spark of manhood or principle
about you, and were anything but a
coward, you would come to me pri
vately, like a man, and tear off the
mask which covers your beastly name.
We think, from your assertions, that
you uiust have been an observant
reader of the "Lebanon Truth."
In order to put the Express in the
homes of many who are not now tak
ing it, we have decided to oiler it from
now until March 1, 1897, for only 25
cents. If you are uot taking the Ex
press already, take advantage of this
offer and subcribe at once, and if you
are already a subscriber, send it to
some Eastern friend for four months.
