GOT A FULL VOTE.
Evan Though They Had to Go to Jail t.
That they had some rutber advanced
Ideas as to the means of "getting out
the vote" In New England a century
ago is shown by an extract from Dr.
Banks' "History of Marthas Vineyard."
The voting, which occurred in 1807,
was on tbe question of the removal of
o county seat
Extraordinary means were taken to
pet out a full vote In Edgartown. The
sailing of ships was delayed for weeks
so that their crews might vote, and on
the day of the town meeting it was
found that the contest between the
two factions was to be close.
Some one suggested that there were
several voters who, unfortunately de
prived of their liberty, were languish
ing in tbe town Jail, and if the Jailer
would kind); allow them to step
across the street and vote it would
consume but a few moments of the
time the prisoners owed to the coun
ty. The Jailer did not feel that he had
the right to allow a general Jail de
livery even for such a worthy object,
although it might save Edgartown.
It was then proposed that the ballot
box be carried over to the gentlemen
who were incarcerated. The point
was then raised that all ballots must
be cast in open meeting and in the
presence of the election officials. Nev
ertheless astute minds found a way
out of this awkward dilemma. A mo
tion was made and carried thnt the
meeting adjourn to the JaiL There the
ballot box was carried to the door of
each prisoner's cell, and the imprison
ed voters reached through the bars
and deposited their ballots.
A BIBLE VERSE.
It Surprised the Boy Who Boasted of
His Wonderful Memory.
A boy who had won a prize for
learning Scripture verses and was
greatly elated thereby was asked by
a minister if it took him a long time
to commit them.
"Oh, no," said the boy boastfully; "I
can learn any verse in the Bible in five
"Can you. Indeed? And will you
learn one for roe?"
"Then in five minutes from now I
would like very much to hear you re
peat this verse," said tbe minister,
handing him the book and pointing out
the ninth verse of the eighth chapter
" 'Then were the king's scribes call
ed at that time in the third month
that is, the mluth Sivan on the three
and twentieth day thereof, and it was
written, according to all that Mordecal
commanded unto the Jews, and to the
lieutenants and the deputies and rul
ers of the provinces, which are from
India unto Ethiopia, a hundred, twen
ty and seven provinces, unto every
province according to the writing
thereof, and uuto every people after
their language, and to the Jews accord
ing to their writing and according to
their language.' "
The boy entered on his task with
confidence, but at the end of an hour
could not repeat it without a mistake
and had to tearfully acknowledge him
self defeated. St Louis Globe-Democrat

Some of the most dnngerous tricks of
animals are those of simulating kind
ness. Charles Montague In "Tales of
a Nomad" says that hyenas often fol
low Hons and finish a carcass the mo
ment the lions have left it Sometimes,
however, the hyenas are too eager and
steal bits of meat while the lions are
still at their tneaL
"I have been told that the Hon rids
himself of the nuisance in the follow
ing way: He throws a piece of meat
aside. When the lion is looking the
other way the hyena dodges in and
rushes off with the meat Presently
the Hon throws another piece of meat
this time a little nearer. The hyena
takes that also.1 At last the Hon throws
a piece very near indeed. The hyena,
having become reckless, makes a dash
at this also, but the Hon wheels round
and lays him low with a pat of bis
paw and a growl of annoyance."

Showed Him the Point.
A large crowd which collected on
Broadway attracted the attention of
two commercial travelers Just buck in
New York. Joining it they discovered
that a safe was being raised to the
fifteenth Door of a building and that
the crowd was careful to stand out
side the roped fence. "That's a good
advertisement for my business," re
marked one of the drummers, who is

Arc you interested in getting
hold of land for a home?
Do you want a place suited
to diversified farming?
We have bargains to offer
in the three tracts listed
Consists of 1100 acres, divided into
250 acres of wheat land, 30 acres now
set to alfalfa, with 20 acres more that can
be put in, and all under good ditch; 800
acres grass land. This is an ideal dairy
and heg ranch, lying on the creek, with
plenty of water the year around. One of
Eastern Oregon's Best Propositions.
$14 per acre; $8000 cash; good
terms on balance.
Is a creek farm of 950 acres; 500
acres of good wheat land; 25 acres now
growing alfalfa, and as much more can
easily be put in as it comes under ditch.

A GENERAL PURPOSE FARM.
A BIG BARGAIN. 3800 acres,
on wnicn is now p-rowino; 00 or U acres
of alfalfa, and 25 acres more can be put
in, making nearly 100 acres that come
under ditch. On this ranch three good
crops of alfalfa are grown each year and
but one irrigation is required; it is sub-
irrigated by from 15 to 20. springs on the
place. There is a good orchard of 150
choice bearing fruit trees; 9-room resi
dence with water piped in from spring;
large sheep shed and other outbuildings.
About 1000 acres of this farm is good
wheat land with 600 acres now in cultiva
tion. 1 1 miles from Heppner.
Price $11 per acre; half cash; easy
terms on balance.
This is one of the best rural homes in all
Eastern Oregon and is certainly a snap at
the figure offered.
To the homeseeker or the investor there are no better
propositions offered than these; nowhere in the Noith
west can such land be had at anything like such figures.
These farms join and can be had all in one deal
separately as desired.
