Gored to Death By
Angry Herd of Deer
Eugene, Or.. Jan. 10. Curious crowds
swarmed to the city park today to see
where William O. Wallaee, park-keeper,
was gored to death by an angry
herd of deer yesterday.
Though there were no witnesses to
his death, there was no dou,bt but Wal
lace was killed by the deer which he
was feeding. His body was found by
the side of a little stream, several yards
outside the deer park. The snow was
spattered with blood and deer tracks.
The gate was open but all the deer had
returned to the enclosure.
It ib thought Wallace had just opened
the gate to feed the animals when they
rushed him. The fact that ho died
quickly led doctors to believe an ar
tery was severed by the blow from the'
antlers of a big buck.
Alcohol In Patent
Medicines Not Question
of Law Says Brown
The amount of alcohol 'in patent
medicines is not a question of law but
a question 0f fact says Attorney Gen
eral Brown today in reply to an injuiry
from the State Board of Pharmacy. The
state board which is holding a three
uays session in t'ortland asked the At
torney General as to the amount of
alcohol allowed in certain bitters and
other patent medicines.
Mr. Brown states that the amount of
alcohol contained can be only determ
ined by an analysis and if it is found
that any of the medicines are put out
in an attempt to evade the law and
are not. in good faith that their sale
should be prohibited without question
under the law as the law is plain and
the alcohol iu certain bitters is a
question only of fact.

STATE SEALERS TEST
2312 PAffiS0F SCALES
General Conditions Through
out State Are Improving
According to the quarterly report of
Deputy State Sealer Fred G. Buchtcl,
issued today,, he inspected and tested
2,312 scales between August 22 and No
vember 22. Of this number 1,487 scales
were found accurate and sealed and 825
were found inaccurate at the time of in
spection. Of the inaccurate scales 406
were adiusted or corrected and sealed
and 419 were permanently condemned.
A total of 2,277 weights were inspected
and tested and 2,171 were found accur
ate and passed, and 100 wero con
demned. Two hundred and seven automatic
gasoline and oil pumps were inspected,
VIA were found accurate and sealed,
34 were found inaccurate at the time
of inspection and 28 were corrected and
passed, six oil pumps were condemned.
In addition to the measures mention-
.pd above, the various bop yards wore
visited during the picking season and
hop measures and scales inspected.
While the large majority of these meas
ures were correct, some of the scales in
nse were inaccurate and caused losses
to the pickers. In such instances new
scales were purchased and installed, and
the pickers reimbursed for the weights
previously not recorded.
A number of the county courts, when
not satisfied with the manuer of pil
ing the wood purchased for the coun
ty, called upon the office to measure
the same, the payments made being
based upon the certified figures of the
office, which resulted in considerable
saving by these counties in tho purchase
of their fuel.
"In general the work accomplished
during the last quarter was satisfac
tory," said Mr. Buclitel "a large
amount of different torritory covered,
and much of the larger and heavier ap
paratus inspected. Stock and warehouse
scales to the number of 100 or more
were tested. The apparatus at the mu
nicipal dock, Astoria, Oregon, was test
ed, and also the equipment iu use at
the Union Meat company of North Port
land. As usual the weights of various
commodities held for sale were checked
with the view of ascertaining the cor
rectness of tho amounts delivered."
