A MYSTERY. , . ; j
About 12:30 o'clock this morning.
while Wm. BickcU an aged and innrm
German, waa slumbering in his abode
on 23d and Oak streets, be waa -
denly awakened by a strange crackling
noise and the stining fumes bt burning
timber anJ arose la alarm to find his
house cn fire and being rapidly con
sumed about him. He hastened " to
don fcls trousers and with a towel tied
around- his: head, climbed out of bis
bedroom window and proceeded to raise
the alarm, but fcls voice was so weak
from long illness that he could rouse
none tfhls neighbors with his cries, so
he set about trying to extinguish the
' ,The lire had gained such headway,
however, that his efforts" were futile
-and fie' finally gave up ' In despair,
but a, few of the neighbors had been
aroused in the mean-time and rushed
to, his' assistance, but only in time to
rescue a few articles of furniture, and
tbeTntnrae, with most of the contents,
was burned to the ground.
5 The building was the - property of
Wm. Neumana former resident of this
cH; and an employe of the . Woolen
Mills for several years, but now a resi
dent of Portland, and -was valued at
about $600. and the furniture that was
consumed was estimated at $25. It is
not known whether or not any insur
ance was carried upon the building.
IThere were a number of outbuildings
on the premises which were not dam
aged, which fact is due to the efforts
of the neighbors who arrfved on the
scene tod late to save the house. ,! : 1
Mr. Bickel Is 72 years o- age and has
been suffering for the past week with
an attack ef acute cramps and does
not know anything concerning the or
igin of the flre,v except that It started
In a small pantry In the rear end of the
house and atrongly : asserts that there
were no matches, lamp, or smoldering
embers by which it could have started.
Mr.; Bickel was left without clothing,
bed of cover and was taken Into the
house of a neighbor until he could be
provided for. " ;

Vacation Is over. Again the school
bell rings at morning and at noon,
again with tens of thousand the hard

The little girl that a few days ago had
roses In her cheeks, and the little boy

Our readerr are by this time familiar
with the name of Dr. Darrln, and they
have no doubt read with Interest ac
counts of the many remarkable cures
this celebrated physician has perform
ed. We suspect that In spite of the
many local cures, some have heard the
testimonials of Krateful patients with
some suspicion as to their authenticity,
therefore we are gratified to be able to
present more testimonials of people
who may be personal acquaintances.
There are probably no better known
people in the county than the names we
present below. They have spent al
most a life time in this state apd their
reputations are. such that nobody can
doubt the truth of their statements.
They have received relief and cure at
the hands of Dr. Darrin. at the Wil
lamette Hotel, Salem, and desire to
inform the people that they may have
the same opportunity. We give their
cards below :
Ne Mora Pain For Her. .
To the Editor: For a long time I have
been afflicted with what physicians
called a cancerous "tumor, of my breast
which gave me great pain. I have been
under Dr. Darrin's electrical treatment
and find my trouble has nearly disap
peared. I am correspondingly happy
over the result. Refer to me at Pra

1 HORDES ARE NOW ON THE WAT
Exhibits are be grinning to arrive at
the Fair Grounds, and the big place is
;now a busy scene. Four car loads of
, flne exWblUon stock were yesterday
!nnr,e"lu,u"" . . , t
received on the greuna from Eastern
Oregon, and piaced4n the stalls here
they are now being cleaned up and
placed in condition for showing next
Monday, while another herd of twenty
nead came in from the south end ot
this county -" . - :" .
Ot the cattle received., twenty head
are fine Heref ords rom C. B- Wade's
farm at Hot Lake, in the Grand Ronde
valley. Union county, y They are fine
representatives of that breed, and are
attracting much attention. Another
two cars brought here twenty head of
Shorthorns from -; Mountain Valley
farm, the big- ranch of W. O. Minor,
of Heppner, and this . herd, as usual,
Is an excellent one of that breed. The
Marion county herd of twenty splendid
animals, are, the Jerseys from the farm
of Hon. D. iH. Looney, Marlon coun
ty's prominent breeder of Jerseys. All
of these animals are especially fine
specimens of the respective breeds.
, Superintendent George Gammle la in
La quandary. He is trying to arrange
to accommodate three animals in room
intended only for' two, and is in diffi
culty, not because there are less stalls
than usual, ; for there are a . hundred
more, but because there are so many
mora, show cattle than, in former years
that the stall room i inadequate for
all that are coming, y However, the
Board is ordering more stalls built and
will accommodate alt that come.
Applications for sheep pens are very
numerous and there will be a large ex
hibit in that line, making a splendid
showing for that Industry.
. Race horses are - coming
many directions. From
yesterday, a telegram was
notifying the Board of the
here of sixty .more race - horses, and
Mr.. Robert Letghton; wrote from Ev
erett, Wash., that he would start from
there on Saturday night with fifteen
car loads of horses for Salem, coming
on a special train,, and arriving' here
in ample time for the- first races on
Monday. More stalls ,.' are required,
and carpenters yesterday began the
work of erecting . twenty more for the
race horses. . .
The poultry, department is n rapidly
filling with entries.: Each mail sees
this list Increasing : and, at present
there, are more birds entered by far
than at the corresponding time last
year. The ? pavilion has been . ; .thor
oughly renovated and- whitewashed.
which makes an excellent light and
gives the interior a neat and tidy .ap
pearance. . There will be two large ex
hibits of poultry supplies which will
add much to the Interest of the depart
ment. Judge W. W. Browning will
give, a lecture during the week which
will be profitable to all those Interest
ed in poultry raising, f There is an ef
fort being made to secure a public ex
hibition of canonizing, Land this will be
ef interest to those who think of tak
ing up this branch of the Industry.
- Tbfi Board is receiving entries in
the creamery department. Superin
tendent J. W. Bailey will be here to
day and will open the building for the
exhibits in .this department this after-
hoon- . ' -
The Collie dog show also promises
to "receive proper attention,, and there
will be splendid animals on exhibition
in this line- The field work of the
Collie dogs will be the most Interest
ing feature to the visiting stockmen.
Among the most notable of the spe
cialties will be the tall girl from Mis
souriElla Ewlng, the giantess. She
is 8 feet 4 leches in height.

PERSONAL AND GENERAL.
There Is more than one side to the
troubles In the hop' yards. There are
several sides. If no contracting had
been done, .the growers, with the pros
pect of receiving high prices, would
generally have been willing to pay 45
or 60c per box for picking. But this
would have been hard on the growers
who have contracted at prices around
10c a- pound, and those more fortunate
whohave not contracted were not will
ing to help fix the prices of picking at
a higher point than: 40c, though they
would- have consented to this if their
own interests only had been at stake.
Then 'there are many yards in the
northern end of the county, and per
haps elsewhere, -that are picked by
neighbors and other iwho are in the
habit of coming every year, and who
are furnished their milk, -vegetables,
etc., by the growers." These pickers re
fuse to go to yards some miles dis
tant where they are paying 60c, be
ing better satisfied where they are aril
have been for years, with 40c per box.
And then 60c per box in some yards
would bring so many pickers) that only
a part of the day could be employed
In picking, owing to the small drying
capacity The pickers In these yards
ran make more at 40c than a larger
number could make in the same yards
at 50c. There are families making as
high as $19 and $1S a day In the north
ern end. and they are satisfied. Some
of the growers are entitled to eonald
eratlon.. as well as the pickers. They
work hard all the year, until picking
time, and then borrow money, or -con
tract their product to get the money.
to pay their pickers. . Their money
and their labor are at stake. Their are
entitled to at least as much sympathy
as a Portland hoodlum who come to
the yard for a few weeks and attempts
to teach them' their duty to their
neighbors, y It would be a fine thing
If the women and children could all
get 60c or $1 a box for picking. They
would have more .money to spend. But
what of the grower who works tae
whole year, rain or shine, and strains
his credit to provide the ready cash
for picking? yThe plekers always get
the cash for their work as fast as it Is
earned. - j
