Killing Duck Out of Season.
There in considerable complaint made
regarding the killing of ducka at the
head of the lake, out of aeaaou. It ia
' aaid that two parties who are known,
having been detected in the act, may lie
brought up with a round turn by the
i Hlate Game Warden, at any time. The
man who would kill a female duck at
thia season of the year deserves to be
prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Besides, he ought to be treated to the
"water cure." Just now the female
ducks are hatching their young and it is
a shame as well as cruelty to kill them.
Home would-be "sportsmen" would do
well to read the state game taws. Once
for all, it ia againat the law to kill
ducks of any kind now. The Warden
has been notified of the transgression of
the law here.

Sal km, Oregon, June 11 Two convicts, Tracy and
Merrill, broke out of the Penitentiary here early Monday

Walked In Mia Sleep.
Bert Iteed met with an accident at his
home near New Pine Creek last (Sunday
night which came near being serious.
Bert occasionally indulges in somnam
bulistic exercises, and while in that
state on the evening mentioned ran his
head through a window paue in his
room. The lid of his right eye was
frightfully lacerated, and several pieces
of glass were removed from the lid of
the optic. Fortunately the eye-ball was
not injured. Bert says he proposes to
sleep in a room without any windows
in the future. He imagined he was
running a foot race, presumably.
Kay Garrixon, a well known young
mau of Lake county, met with an acci
dent similar to the one that befell Ches
ter lilixxlHoe, announced in this issue.
The two accidents also happened on the
same day. Vhile handling a 38-calibre
revolver, at ltock Creek, the gun was
discharged, the bullet enteriug Garri
son's Wt leg above the knee, coming
out ou the opposite side. The young
man at once started for town and upon
arriving here had the wound' dressed.
He is laid up at Sib Harbor's residence,
nd is getting along nicely.
YOUNd WIFG AND
Word comes from Klamath Falls that
A. I'. McMillan, teacher of brass in
strument, string muhic, lnelall en
tlmxiant and late candidate for justice
of the peace at Klamath's alure town,
has taken French leave without con
sulting his wife or anyboiy else. Mac
alio took a bicycle that beloifged to
another man and separated several
confiding friends from their spare cab
on a Wro. He did not want to over
look anybody, dt-airing to be rcnu-mber-ed
by all his frieruln, ao he appropriated
f 75 or -S0 that had I en entrusted to
liini to purchase instruments for a young
ladiee' brass band he proposed to organ
ize. He learned that the authoiities of
Seattle, WaahuiKton, were on his trail
(or oome offense committed in that city,
and not desiring to go back to Wash
ington liecause the climate wis not con
ducive to his health, he left for other
parts. It ia .aid he forgot lo say good
bye to his young wife. A warrant has
been issued for his arrest. Not long
since McMillan wrote a letter to The
Kxaminer to see how the music business
was running over here, but received no
encouragement. A few months ago he
.won the love of M las Edna Mitchell, a
Klamath Falls young lady, ell known
in Lakeview, and they were married.
