Driven Out by Starvation.
(From thcCnrvallla Times.)
An unhappy story attaches to the
removal to (lie county poor farm, of
Mrs, Kred Smith, nee Alice Otlen. As
related by a relative the story tells of
wretchedness and poverty uncommon
In olvlliad communities. The late
home of the unfortunate woman was
the summit of the Elliott mountain,
several miles northwest of Corvallls.
"A fir pole pen." said this relative,
"ten hy twelve feet in dimensions with
a leaky cover over It, wits the sole
refuge of Ihe mother, her three-year-old
child and thirteen-rnouths infant
from Ihe storm aud inclement weather.
The husband has never endeavored to
provide for his family, the wife many
times being tlriveu by hunger to the
distant neighbors for food for herself
aud children. Schmidt has also been
cruel in his treatment of the woman.
At one time he lashed ber hands and
feet to a liedstead, and in that uncom
fortable position left her to wear out
the long minute? of the day in the best
way she could. The most of the sup
plies for Ihe wretched family, ever
since the forty acres of fine land left
Mrs. Bchmidt by her grandfather, was
frittered away, have been the dona
tions of relatives. Three weeks before
Mrs! Schmidt and her two children
were taken to the poor farm Schmidt
left them alone in the mountain cabin,
nod went to Lincoln county. The
stock of provisions became exhausted,
aud, driven out by starvation the mo
ther with the two babes in her arms
made her way to Isaac Jaokson's,
where they were Lindly cured for,
until brought to relatives near Corval
iis. Schmidt did not return from the
Lincoln county trip, until after his
wife had gone to the poor farm.
Schmidt has not carried out his
threat to take his wife out of the poor
house, aud husgone back to his cabin
alone. He Is a big husky with strength
and health, and the fact that he
hardly attempts to support those de
pending upon him, makes of Mr
Schmidt a very ornery scrub,
Mrs. Emma G. Hannah Insane.
On complaint of the physician at the

Emma O. Hannah, who was convicted
in Albany of killing Mrs. Lottie Hiatt

1305, sentenced to imprisonment in
the penitentiary for lile, was Friday
afternoon examined before the lawful
board, and declared iusane .and was
removed to the lusatie asylum.
Mrs. Hannah has shown symptoms
of insanity for some lime. Sl.e insists
that she is pursued by somebody who
is trying to kill her. The strain upon

seems to haye resulted In a mental col

Letter From Asia,
The Albiiny Democrat publishes a
letter received by Mr. and Mm. Jus.
Marks from their son in-hiw, Rev,.C.
U. Cullender, now In Asia. The letter
reads us follows:
Chino Mai, Laos, Dec. 20, 1800,
rile annual meeting of Mission and
Presbytery has Just closed, having been
In session two weeks. To-morrow
most of the missionaries from other
stations start home. We have been as

ers iu Ihe mission are sent by the
whole body, after consulting the pref
erences, anil reasons for such, of indi
The difficulties multiply and the
work litcomeH more comnlicateil each
year is forces increase both by mission
aries and ingathering of native con
vert,,, some ot wnoni are preaching the
gospel. The meetliiB of mission is
conducted in English, but the Preshy-
icr.v iu me i.uo tongue. 1 nere are six
stations that constitute the mission
Praa, Nun, Lakuwn. Lamooou. (now a
sub-station of Cliing Mai) Chlng Mai,
and Cuing Hai, which is a new station
to be opened soon. In the whole mis
sion are 25 missionaries, 3 of whom are
ai nome on tnrlough, and 3 others are
going home soon. As a rule returned
missionaries return to the foreign Held
after one yeui ;s stay at home. In this
number I have not included the wives
of missionaries, but ordained ministers,
physicians and lady teachers. In the
native ministry ure 8 ordained minis
ters and 3 licentiates. In Chine Mai
is a theological training school for the
native ministry, iu which there were
30 Ibis year. Chlng Mai church has a
membership of over 700. During the
year just past about 230 were added to
the different churches, 15 in number.
The North Laos Presbytery has the
name of receiving a greater ratio into
tue church than any other, whether iu
foreign or borne laud.
I must express surprise at Ihe good
time missionaries here have. Tenuis
is a commou game for recreation and
exercise, as also is horseback-riding.
There is scarcely no end to horses;
they are much smaller, however, than
those at home. There are no wagons,
but for short hauling ox-carts are used.
For long traveling either horses or
elephants are used as pack animals,
and often men carry goods of the mis
sionary Houses of missionaries are large and
tint; as a rule I think they are better
than houses of home missionaries. Cli
matic conditions necessitate large
rooms and plenty of them. Bath rooms
are attached to all Ihe houses, the
bath being a very important faclor to
health. In short, the foreign mission
ary is provided with comforts of life
essential to the preserving of health
and progress of God's work. From
the standpoint of temporal comfort I
do not see that we have sacrificed any
thing. Aside from the separation from
telatlvts it does not seem a sacrifice.
When one considers that hoaie mall
comes every two weeks (if there Is any)
by which if he takes papers, he ujay
be as well informed as those at borne
this news Is a little behind time and
when one thinks especially of the rich
blessings coming from preaching the
gospel and teaching and seeing scores
brought into Ihe kingdom, besides
other temporal comforts which have
been mentioned, when one considers
these things it call scarcely be said
that the element of self-sucrilice ought
to any considerable degree enter the
mind either of those going or those
who are left iu the home field. I think
the aelf-sacrilicing nart is on the side
of those remaining at home nther
than ou that of the one going. We
are glad we have come, mid believe
that liod's hand of love will guide us
further and cause us to be a blessing in
tue j,ao lana.
