Strange os it May Seem.
The Crook County Journal says
that a man was froze to death on
the streets of Prlneville a few night
ago. lie had read the thermometer
up-slde down and thought it was 05
deerees below zero, and expired al
most instantly. That's strange,
but no more so than an Incident oc
curring In Lukevlew about the same
time. 1'lck Wilcox, assistant cashier
of the i' Irs t National Hank, hung a
thermometer up-slde down in his
cow barn and the next morning his
cow gave ice cream.

One of the biggest ranches In the
United .States was sold last week to
the Co-operative Christian Federa
tion, of Oregon. The ranc-h is CO
miles long and 25 miles wide and
consists of 104.0(10 acres. The price
paid was $1,800,000. The land lies
in Harney county around Steins
mountains about 100 miles east of
Lakeview. This company lias a
capital of $50,(100,000, and the aciui
sillou of this Immense property is
only a drop in the bucket to the
Federatioidsts. It is said the com
pany contemplate oilier and more
extensive operations within the
state, among them the purchase of
what is known as the Road Land
Grant, consisting of many hundred
thousand aces of Jural along the
route of tlio military wagon road,
the large sawmills belonging to the
companies now iu possession of the
lands, and the construction of rail
roads in the interior district now
without rail facilities.
The Federatioidsts announce that
they will establish a modern colony
on the French-Glenn ranch anil place
10,000 people there. It is also pro
posed to procure 800,000 acres from
the Willamette Valley aud Cascade
Mountain Wagon Road Co., which
will make homes for 40,000 more.
Diversified farming will be the princi
pal industry, and it is proposed to
maintain various other enterprises.
A New Electrician.
Marshall Whorton was struck
with an idea one day last week that
nearly knocked him off the sidewalk
and caused a short circuit ou the
electric light system, which was not
discovered until about dark. Man
concluded he was electrician enough
to place a light at tlie water tank
and wire it, and he accomplished the
feat, and about dusk hied himself to
! a place of observation to bee the
I light shine at the tank when the
' dynamo at Hue Creek sent electricity
' curling through the wires. JJutMan
! was disappointed; his lamp gave no
light, neither did any one else's. He
had made a short circuit, and until
Recorder Snider went up and cut the
I wire leading to the lamp at the
! tank, did the town have any lights.
! Water spouts are becoming the
! terror of northern counties again
this fall. Mitchell was visited by
one a few duys ago, aud the same
day Shaniko was the scene of u
cloud burst. No loss of 11L or ser
ious damage U reported from either
Taken to the Asylum.
Mrs. Reed of Paisley, of whom we
made mention last week as being
mentally alllicted from continued ill
ness, was taken to the court house
Saturday and committed to the cus
tody of attendants then on the way
from the asylum to take charge of
the unfortunate woman, iu response
to a telegram sent ou Wednesday.
Mrs. Reed's case was n very severe
one, and, one especially dlliicult to
handle outside (if a hospital. Her
halluciuataiou was that some ouo
was trying to poison her, and she
would neither eat, drink nor take
medicine, and for ;l(i hours went with
out water or nourishment of any
kind. The attendants arrived liere
Sunday evening, a lady and agentle
man who were very kind to Mrs.
Reed, and they started on the return
trip Monday arternoou. It is believ
ed and sincerely hoped that a few
months' treatment will restore her
to her health and right mind.
Mrs. Reed was a very intelligent
and well read woman. She getting
well along iu years and her weaken
ed condition from a severe sick spell,
makes her a very delicate patient.
Jury Disagrees Again.
Again tlie jury iu the Williamson,
(leaner and Riggs trial disagreed
after deliberating 45 hours. The jury
stood 7 for conviction and 5 for ac
quittal during the first three ballots,
and after that It was 0 to (i. Judge
De Haven discharged the jury and
set the new trial for August L's.
Judge Hunt of Montana will try the
case, us De Haven is compelled to
return to Sun Francisco.
The last trial seemed to bo a legal
battle between District Attorney
Heney and counsel for the defense.
At times the battling attorneys be
came so vindictive that the one be
ing scored, with tears in his eyes
would seek protection from the
