It has been learned that J. G. Luhr
man, who is under arrest at Baker City,
for the -murder of his partner, V. 1.
XVciman at Sunrpter last Monday even
ing, is the same individual that V,cnt
last Summer in this city ar?d was such a
prominent figure in baseball; circles.
Before 4caving this city last fall -Luhrman
told some friends that Sumptcr
was his destination and 'that he pro
posed to engage in the restaurant and
lunch counter business. He-said he
would conduct the sam in" a large tent
under the .name of the Cape Norn

firmatory oi the i general supposition
here that -Luhrman formerly resided in
this city. -

(MANIA FOR .WILL-MAKING.
An Old Woman Who Had a Distinct
Method in Her Madness.
"Several years ago," said a New Or
leans lawyer, dialling about queer ex
periences i r his -profession, "a woman
died in this city who to my certain
knowledge had made at least twentv-
five different wilis. Oi course, there
are people m- fhe world who' have a
mama for will-making, just as there
are manias in other directions, but there
was a distinct method in this woman's
madness. She made her -numerous wills
for the deliberate purpose of exciting
cirpidtty and Then- prohtmg by it, and n
the tn'e story of the curious complica
tions growing out of that policy could
be written it would form an astonishing
chronicle of greed and duplicity. To
begin wit'h. she had a couple of pieces
of improved property worth perhaps
$6,000, and, a lot of personal belong
ings, which were mere junk ami rub
bish, but which she valued at a fabu
lous figure. 'Between the two she was
reputed to be worth from- $50,000 to
$60,000, and there was much jealousy as
to prospective suctessron among a lot
of distant relatives.
The old woman's plan was to take
up her quarters with some particular set
of her kin and make a will in tbeir fa
vor. Neidless to say, she would be
treated with every consideration, but
she was very irascible, ami invariably
got into a quarrel in. the course of a
few months-, and moved somewhere
else, where the same programme was
reoeated. -She ipent years in migra
tions of that sort, going Che rounds of
her relative several times and , camp
imr temporarily with numerous per-
sotral friends. Whein she finally died
t was found that ber last authentic wwl
left tbe coveted property to a niece who
had shown her scarcely any attention
at all. and the wail of rage and disap
pointment that arose was something
simply terrific. I dare say she engen
dered more family bitterncs wfaen she
was alive, precipitated more-rows, and
was in-strtiim-ntal in causing a greater
number of people to stop speaking
when they passed by than any other
orre person in the parii. This was an
extreme case, but it was by no. means
unique. 'Almost every lawyer in town
who has a large general practice could
cite instances where jndicfnis will
making has kept old age surrounded
by affectionate VoIicitudc." New Or

SHAKING HANDS.
A "Scientific Custom. Dating Back to
the Beginning of Time
"It is said by ancient astrologers that
shaking bands is a. scientific cirtom
which dates back to the beginning of
time. There rs all the difference m the
world between the various modes of
s-baking the Wand of stranger or friend
as to the resulting impression obtained
by and through ibat operation, con
i?ciously ' or unconsciously'" sad a
society woman at a s4ect afternoon tea
yesterday. "I ctaim that the results
depend upon the proper position taken
by the two hands tlasped. although a
mere touch will tell much. We sbalce
hands in order to form a connection
between u wbich will result in tbe ex

"The physical and mental strength
are there united in the strongest mag
netic center of the body. If, the two
hands thus clasped are placed with
their magnetic centers in close con
tact, no matter where the rest, of the

strong magnetic current established be-1

MARRIAGE BY FORCE.
Indians of Tierra del Fuego Take Ad
vantage of Their Strength.
Dr. Frederick A. Cook teHs of a
little-known race of aborigines in an
article in the Century JMagazure for
'March on "Tlie Giat .Indians of Tier
ra del Fucgo," whom hevisited on the
Belgian Antarctic expedition. Of their
marriage customs he writes:
Marriage, like almost everything Ona,
is not fixed by established rules. It is
arranged and rearranged from time to
time to suit the convenience of the
contracting parties. Women. gem-Tally,
have very little to say about it. The
bargain is made almost solely by the
men, and physical force is the principal
bond of 'union. For ages the strong
est bucks have been accustomed to
steal women from neighboring tribes,
and from neighboring clans of their
own tribe. The Onas. being by far
the most powerful Indians, have "thus
been able to capture; and retain- a lib
eral fifpply of wives. A missionary
Who ha been in constant contact with
these Indians for thirty years has giv
en it as his opinion that a plurality of
wives is entirely satisfactory to their
peculiar emotions and habits of life.
The relation to: one another of the
women who possess' but one husband
in common ill the family wigwam is of
niovcl interest. As a rule they are no
more jealous than arc tbe children of
a civilized home circle. The principal
reason for this is that the several wives
are often sisters. A young, man takes
by force, by mutual agreement or by
barter the oldest daughter of a family.
I'f he proves himself a god hunter and
a kind husband. the"'wiie persuades her
sister to join; her wigwam and sharr
her hitbarHrs affections. Frequently,
when a girl l.s left an- orphan, -die is
taktn into a family and 'trained to be
come the supplementary wifc of her
fienefactor in after 'years. In the hut
eath wife has her, own assigned posi
tion, al-way resting in exactly the same
pot, with alt of tier belongings about
her. The wealth of the household is
not common to all the occupants. Each
woman has her owrn basket of meat,
fragments of shellfish, her own bag
with implements, needles, sinews and
bits of fur. and each, wife has her own
assemblage of children.
Tlie work of tbe man is strictly lim
ited to the chase. He, carries his bow
and quiver of arrow. and hw eye is
ever on the horizon for game; but he
seldom stoois' to anything like manual
labor that is not connected with the ac
tual necessities of the chase.' He kills
the game, but' the wife must carry it
into camp. It moving, the" women
take up all of their, earthly possessions,
pack them irtto a huge roll, and with
this firmly strapped across their backs,
they follow the unincumbered lead of
their brave but u-njjailant fiukbamts.
Thus the women carry day after day,
not only, all the household furniture,
but thp children and the portable por
tions ot the house. The women car
tainly have all uninteresting detail and
the drudgery of life heaped ifpon- them,
but t'lrcy seem to crijoy it. Irp defense
ttf the; men h should be said that they
are worthy huibands. They will fight
fiercely to protect their homes, and
they will guard the honor of their wo
men with their own blood. It is 4
crying sin of the advance of CbriiTtiah
civilization. that this red man of. the far
South -should be compelled to lay down
hrs lite at the feet of the heartless pale
ffaccd invaders to, shield, the honor of
his home. ' . .. .

If the following fact were not vouch

cian. Dr. G. Lcgiuv it would be per-i

lion sueuested by iiin-drv- of the ni.irvel-
iiih Vures" in- vogue in, the -Middle
Ages. 'Dr. Legue waW put oil the track
of his curious discovery by one of his
patients, who informed hi 111 in the
most casual manner, auftl as if there
were nothing extraordinary about the
statenKtrt. that; -she had tried th "piR
eon' cure" for nieningitis and for the
first lime with limited Kttocess. . Dr.
Legue had to confess- his etitire ignor
ance of the cure in fiiiestioh and to ask
for an explanation of it nature. It ai
then revealed to him that in tin-? scep
tical age. and in Paris, of all place in
the world, there are 'ieiIe. who believe
in" the Cjfticaciousness, as ja remrdy lor
certain maladies, of elic ' blood of a
frevhly-killcd pigeon.
The head of the patient to be treated
is, shavel, ami thei the breast of the
pigeon U rippxd opeiv by the "operat
or," and the warm and bleeding Carcass
immediately applied to the bared skull.
The btlicvtrs in this cruel and sense
less cure itnagihe that all fever drawn
out of the body by tbe hot lifejiood
and the uivcriiig. llesh of the pigeon..
The extraordinary thing is that faith
in the cure H widespread, and reconrc
to it frequent. Dr. I-gue, who has
thoroughly im-estigatctl the matter, has
been able to obtain the address of a
s-T.rm in fhe central markets at whkii
rKHhing the is sJd but live pigeons
kstined to this tfangc purjse. The
btrs4ness done it so Jwisk that the late
proprietor, M me. Michel, has been, able
to retire, after making a small fortune.
Her MicctTssor declares that the igeoii
cure is considered a wn-ereign remedy
for influenza, since the appearance of
whicli sbe has been unable to meet the
deman that ha arisen' for birds. They
are also used, it keew, in cases Tof
typhoid fever; but in this jnManec two
pigeona are necessary, and they are ap
plied tthe feet of the patient. Pall
