Jesse Hobson has had returns
from a number of shipments of Italian
prunes and very fair prices are re
ported, so that it looks like the grow
ers will realize good prices for their
prunes after all expenses are paid.
Oscar and Harry Allen are buying
apples to ship. They are paying
twenty-five cents per bushel in the
orchard, the seller doing the picking
while they do the packing. Wormy
apples are not taken.
B. C. Miles found that his new
fruit evaporator was not of sufficient
capacity to evaporate his big crop of
pears and prunes. With all the new
orchards coming into bearing next
year the evaporating capacity must
be about doubled in this community
if all the prunes are taken care of.
Taft, the Portland real estate man
who some three years ago bought out
land of H. Cooper southeast of New

Jeannette Sinclair of Idaho, and then
failed to apply the money forwarded
by her on the notes, was sentenced
the first of this week to three years
in the penitentiary. His attorneys

him from the pen but it looks doubt

The 3 year-old child of G. W.Pierce
of Independence was burned to death
dying at 5 o’clock Saturday morning
while the family was away from
home. The Pierce children and
others built a bonfire of dried leaves
in the back yard, and a burning leaf
lit on the dress of little Ada Pierce
and, in a moment, she was enveloped
in flames. The brother, aged 11 ran
into the house and brought out a
quilt, and, wrapping it around the
girl put out the flames, but not until
her body and one arm were shocking
ly burned. Her clothes were burned
off, and the flames which she inhaled
caused her death.

After being out only 40 minutes,
the jury impaneled in Grant’s Pass
to try Charles Fiester, charged
with murdering his wife, brought
in a verdict of murder in the
first degree. The defense tried to
prove Fiester was insane. Fiester
drowned his wife in a hole of water
near the railroad track, May 19th.
The crime was committed in the
presence of their three young chil
dren. After the murder Fiester
sent the children to Merlin, four
miles further on, to tell the older
boys what had happened. The diffi
culty grew out of family troubles of
long standing. Fiester went to
Grant’s Pass later in the evening
and gave himself up to the sheriff.
The pair had been separated for a
long time, but a reconciliation was
effected and the two, in company
with the children, ware on their way
from Grant’s Pass to Merlin, where
Fiester was logging. Mrs. Fiester

Women of Birmingham, Ala., may
ride bicycles, but they have put
away all idea of adopting bloomers,
and all on account of a clever trick
resorted to by those who oppose the
fashion. When the craze first struck
the city, none but extremely young
girls appeared on the streets in the
bifurcated garments. It was whisp
ered, however, that the young women,
and some not so young, were hastily
preparing their new suits. Then
the anti-bloomerites played it low
down. They employed a coal black
negress of ponderous weight and
flabby form to ride a bicycle through
the streets day after day. They at
tired her in a gorgeous costume, con
sisting of flaming red waist, blue
trousers, with a wide white stripe
down the sides, and bright yellow
hose. Owing to her great avoirdu
pois, this grotesque figure perspirea
at every pore as she wheels along
the street, but she was well paid for
her labor, and the bloomer craze has
been killed forever in Birmingham.
Say, why don’t you try De Witt’s Littla
Early Risers? These little pills cure
headache, indigestion and constipation.
They’re small, but do the work. Roger»
