A Resume of Events in
ATONED FOR HIS CRIME.
I.. W, Melson, the Murderer, Kxecuted
at Grants Pass. "
Grant's Pass, July 5. Lemuel W.
Melson was executed here today. He
abandoned all hope yesterdav, and was
taken into the Episcopal church and
baptized by Rev. Isaac Dawson.
He spent the day '. in reading and
in writing letters, and was more oalm
than any one else about the jail. He
slept well last night and ate a hearty
breakfast this morning. He refused to
discuss the crime or his position, saying
only when asked that he was innocent.
He was very muoh affected by the
church ceremonies and the sirging, and
wept quietly. v , ;
There was a great many people in
town to witness the hanging. Sheriff
Hiatt issued 100 invitations, and be
sides those in the enclosed space the
court-house yard is well filled. The
board fence around the scaffold is so
constructed that a good view of the pro
ceedings can be had from the main
yard and street. About 500 people wit
nessed the execution.
Rev. Dawson went into the jail at
8:45 this morning. "Melson made a full
confession of the crime. Sheriff Hiatt
had the death warrant at 9:40, and at
10:03 Rev. Dawson prayed his last
At 10:01 Sheriff Hiatt and his depu
ties, with Melson, ascended the scaf
fold. When asked if he had anything
to say, Melson said:
"I am guilty of killing Perry, and
am sorry for it. May God have mercy
on my guilty soul."
Melson was perfectly composed and
calm. He bid the sheriff good-bye,
and at 10:13 the drop was sprung. Mel
son's neck was broken and death was
instantaneous. At 10:22 he was pro
nounced" dead by the physicians and cut
down. He will be buried in the pau
per graveyard at the expense of the
county. He wrote a long letter to his
Story of Melson's Crime.
Grant's Pass, July 5. In ;March,
1896, Charles Perry disappeared from
the Waldo copper mine, near Waldo,
Or., where he was employed and was
known to have had considerable money
with him at the time. Inquiry by his
friends for several months failed to dis
close his wherabouts, and fearing that
he had met with foul play, a search
ing party was organized on August 25,
and after two days' travel in. the Sis
kyou mountains, the party found, the
body of Perry in an old well near a de
Berted mining claim. There was a bul
let wound in the right side, and on the
ground near by was shell from a 41
caliber Colt's revolver, whioh the bul
let taken from the wound fitted. With
this evidence the party ( returned to
Crescent City, Cal.
It was learned that while at the cop
per mine Perry had often been told by
L. W. Melson, his friend, of a fine
mining prospeot between there and the
coast in the Siskiyou mountains, and
that Melson left the copper mine on the
day of Perry's disappearance. He re
turned next day and went to Crescent
City Cal., saying that Perry had gone
Melson began spending money freely,
though previous to that time he was
known to have been possessed of very
limited means. It was also learned
that Melson had sold a revolver which
proved to be the one from whichthe
bullet found in Perry's body had been
fired. In his possession was also found
a watch which proved to be Perry's.
MelBon was plaoed under arrest at
Crescent City, but . it was ascertained
that the murder was committed in Ore
gon, and the prisoner was brought to
Grant's Pass, Or., for trial.' He was
convicted and sentenced to death May
14, 1897. The evidence throughout
the trial was conclusive "of Melson's
Melson was about 42 years old, and

where he was married, and where he
leaves a wife and two children. ; '
Melson's wife did not visit him dur

desire to see him, but wrote to him fre

expressed very little sympathy for him,

Frozen Lamb for London.
Some 18 years' ago the flock owners oi
Australia, finding that there wast a fair
market in England for canned nutton,
determined to try the experiment of ex
porting the . fresh-killed meat in a
frozen state. Sheep which had been
bred with a view to producing wool
rather than for table use, did not at
first find favor with the public, besides
which an occasional breakdown in
the refrigerating machinery often ren
dered the experiment an expensive one
for the shipper. New Zealand sheep
were found to be of a muoh better
quality, and by degrees difficulties were
surmounted and prejudices overcome
until New Zealand mutton has become
as common an object in London , meat
markets as the home-grown article.
Owing to the difference in the seasons
on the other Bide of the eauator, lambs
are ready for export about Christmas
time, so that they can be placed on
the London market earlier in the season
than those raised at home. The car
casses are first cooled and then' slightly
frozen on shore; they are then trans
ferred to a dry chamber on board ship,
where the temperature is steadily main
tained at a few degrees below freezing.
On their arrival in port . they . are
again transferred to a cold-storage
chamber and kept there until wanted.

1 Wooden Shoos.
There are several wooden shoe fac
tories in America. The Hollanders
brought these durable foot coverings
from the old country, and were long
made sport of by the Irreverent. But
the Americans have, within a few
years, been coming to the conclusion
that in adopting the wooden footwear
the Dutch had pretty level heads. The
shoes are especially desirable for work
In laundries, breweries, and stables, as
.well as on the farm when the ground Is
wt. . They do not become saturated
with moisture, never get out of shape
like leather boots, and are surprisingly
warm and comfortable, and In addi
tion they are cheap, and will outlive
several pairs of cowhide boots. The
awkwardness of wearing the shoes
eoon passes away, and when the
wearer enters the house he kicks them
off, for shoes or slippers of more grace
ful build. Wooden shoes are made en
tirely by hand. . Small, solid blocks of
wood are first shaped like a shoe. They
are then turned over to the borer, who
with a . variety of Implements makes
the hole, for the foot. He first bores a
hole for the heel and then with what
looks like an exaggerated cheese spoon
works . his way toward the toe. Once
started with augers, knives, scoops and
4erapers, the place for the foot Is rap
Idly shaped. The workman often uses
calipers and measures, so that one shoe
of a pair shall be as near as possible
the mate of the other. The shoe Is then
sent to the drying room to remain a
month, when the final touches are to
give it the last scraping and the artistic
finish. In this country, the wood used
is basswood, as It is light, easy to
work, durable and dry. Occasional or-
'ders are received for fancy shoes to be
made of maple or walnut, and once an
extra fine pair had a mahogany veneer.
The shoes are especially adapted for
wearing in wet places, and the demand
for them Is steadily Increasing.
The Sea Gall.
The sea gull Is the scavenger of the
ocean. It scours the surface of the
sea near the shore and frequents har
bors to seize on floating garbage, dead
fish and other putrefying matter; and
these birds have saved many a village
and seaport town, round about which
tneyhover, from plague and pestilence.
Such being the services of the sea
gull it Is a short-sighted policy that
causes them to be ruthlessly killed by
thousands, partly ( In idle sport, but
principally that their wings may be
used -.for.' millinery purposes., Thedr
eggs are also; collected In enormous
quantities for museums and for th
shops of naturalists. v y

Franklin's Bequest In Court.
If Benjamin Franklin, one of the
wisest of men, could have foreseen the
difficulties and complications that have
grown out of his famous bequest to the
city of Boston of $5,000, more than 100
years ago, he would probably have can
celled that part of the will, or at least
made its provisions very different, re
marks the Buffalo Commercial. The
fund, which now amounts to $348,000,
has been invested mainly as he direct
ed. At the end of the first hundred
years the prinoipal was to be laid out at
the discretion of the managers of the
donation to the town of Boston, "in
public works which may be judged of
most utility to the inhabitants, such as
fortifications, bridges, aqueducts, pub
lic buildings, baths, pavements, or
whatever may make living in the town
more convenient to its people and ren
der it more agreeable to strangers re
sorting thither for health or temporary
residence." The money is in the Bos
ton oity treasury, but it appears the
municipal authorities and the trustees
are at loggerheads as , to their respec
tive powers, and also as to tBe method
of its expenditure, and as a last resort
the matter has been carried to the
courts. An application is to be made tip
the supreme court of Massachusetts to
decide who has authority under the will
to expend the money in one of the sev
eral ways suggested by the testator.
It is to be hoped a way out of the diffi
culty will be found and that the fund
will be used to establish the Franklin
trades school, as has been proposed. It
is one of the most remarkable legacies
ever made, and the benevolent intent
is plain endugh, though perhaps not ex
pressed in sufficiently definite terms. ,
Buried the Wrong- Corpse.
Fairplay describes the following as a
true story: Lately an English family
had the . misfortune to lose an aged
nnt, whodied in St. Petersburg. Ar
rangements were most carefully made
and directions sent that the body should
be forwarded to England to be interred
in the family vault. In due time a
magnificent coffin arrived and before it
was lowered to its last resting place it
was openrt for inspection. Much to
the dismay of the family, instead of
finding the familiar features and frail
form of their beloved auiri, the corpse
of a Russian offioer, clothed in military
garments and decorated with ribbons
and medals, was disclosed to view. A
I f rantio telegram was dispatched to the
Russian capital, to which the following
answer was returned: "Lady, buried
yesterday with military honors. Please
keep the general. " ' '

The "Catch" in
How Hawaii Is Pronounced.
As we have now started on the road
toward the annexation of Hawaii, it ia
but natural that Americans should
want to pronounce the name of the
forthcoming new territory correctly;
The correct pronunciation is "Ha-wi-e,"
the "a" Bounded as in "father,"
the "i" as in "time," and the "e" as
in "we," the accent being on the seo
ond syllable. It is well to know how
the new territory is pronounced, says
the Chicago Tribune, even before it en
ters into the Union. :r 1
New Use for Sand Blast.
The sand blast has frequently been

docked and by means of compressed air
sand was forced against the sides of the
vessel, cleansing and polishing the iron
