Miss Oleander Hughes, who has
been afflicted for several years, but
whose last severe Illness w-as but for
a few days, died at the Granite City
hospital on Monday night, May 27,
having been removed from the home
on Beach street only a few days be
fore for special treatment. She was
28 years of age and was especially
well known in the vicinity of Phoe
nix, where she grew to young wom
anhood. At 16 years of age she
united with the Christian church at
Phoenix, and after moving to Ash
land with her mother, became a
member of her chosen church in Ash
land. She had a multitude of young
friends down the valley, and all who
knew her loved her, because of her
unselfish, pure and noble life. She
dearly loved children, and the little
ones on every hand became attached
to her. Her family and friends have
great satisfaction in seeing her die
fully conscious, saying in her last
moments, "I am going home to
glory." She leaves a mother, four
brothers and a large circle of friends
to mourn her departure from this
world. A great profusion of flowers
were brought In honor of her mem
ory. She was a great lover of flow
ers all her life. A large concourse
of people attended the funeral. Ser
vices were held at the home on Beach
street at 2 o'clock Wednesday by
Rev. W. T. Van Scoy, and interment
was in Mountain View cemetery.

VAST SILENT WILDERNESS.
Primeval Stillness Vividly Portrayed
in Story of Cuiuulian Wilds.
Thirteen hundred miles by canoe
through the Canadian wilderness
along the Albany river to James bay
is the trip described by George Marsh
in Scribner's, in writing which makes
on realize something of the oppres-
sixe weight of the primeval stillness
that rests upon the voyager in places
where only the Indian has as yet
lived as master. He says:
"Many times in the still August
afternoons we ran for hours without
speaking the depression of the
silence stifling all desire for conver
sation. Save for the scream of a
hawk wheeling above spruce forests,
and the wash of hurrying waters on
stony shores, no sound met our ears.
The graceful birches and poplars,
swaying in their long white frocks
like slender Burne-Jones ladies, beck
oned and nodded as we passed, while
in the background their swarthy hus
bands, the everpresent black spruce
kept jealous guard. Then, often,
breezes in the tree tops became
strains of great orchestras, and the
babel of many voices filled the air.
"Although in September, on the
bay, a bright, clear day was unusual,
yet often at evening the clouds would
break, to reveal the splendor of a
matchless sunset, and when the moon
was full many of the nights were
beyond description. The milky way
banded the heavens with a dense
whiteness unknown to lower lati
tudes. Up from the sea-line the rib
boned lights of the aurora borealis
pulsed and wavered, or streamed
now opaque, now diaphanous, faintly
veiling the sky."
Society is Organized to l-'oi-cstall
San Francisco. To prevent the
"commercializing" of the life work
of Luther Burbank, the famous horti
culturist, a Luther Burbank society
has been organized and chartered by
the state of California, with the def
inite purpose of seeing that the
work of the great scientist is given
to posterity without entail.
The society has no capital stock
and no power to incur debts or to
earn profits. Its purpose is solely
to assist Luther Burbank In the dis
semination of his teachings, so that
the greatest number may profit in
the greatest degree. It has an ex
tensive membership, with names of
nation-wide fame on the roll. The
aim is to place the wizard's knowl
edge in convenient book form at
nominal cost before every farmer.

I Vary Says Seri-ct of Success I,y In
Use of Dogs.
Rear Admiral Peary in the World's
Work for May discusses briefly Cap
tain Amundsen's achievement.
"To my mind he had one great ad
vantage over the Scott expedition,"
says Admiral Peary. "His tractive
power was dogs. His experience with
them in the south proved their effec
tiveness as my experience did in the
north. Captain Scott's equipment in
cludes twenty ponies and thirty dogs,
and one or two ice automobiles, giv
ing him with his men four different
kinds of tractive power for dragging
his sledges. But the number of his
dogs is comparatively few. Captain
Amundsen lost thirty-six of his, or
six more than Captain Scott took.
The British seem to have put their
main reliance on their ponies and
their motors, and in this, while I
may be mistaken, I feel both on gen
eral principles and from a study of
Shackleton's experiences, that they
may be handicapped.

San Francisco. Boards of Inquiry
will hereafter be convened to ascer
tain the cause and fix the responsibil

not clearly manifest, for all accidents
on the Southern Pacific, according to
information made public in the gen

Full publicity as to the findings of
such inquiry boards will also b!
This is a new move on the part
of the Southern Pacific and is in line
with its policy of full publicity for
accidents adopted several years ago.
Following an accident that Is not of
minor consequence, the ranking offi
cial on the division on which the ac
cident occurs shall convene the board,
which board shall comprise two dis
interested persons not connected with
the railroad, and the division officers
representing the operating, mechan
ical and engineering departments.
The board must visit the scene of the
accident and must take the testimony
of employes and eye-witnesses, per
sisting in the investigation until the
causes are determined. Should a di
vision board of inquiry fail to reach
a conclusion, a second board, com
prising higher officials, shall be con
vened, and if the findings of the sec
ond board be not conclusive, the gen
eral manager will convene a third
The instructions to officers who
shall convene Inquiry hoards state
specifically that the responsibility
must be fixed regardless of individ
uals or interests affected. The find
ings must be turned over to the gen
eral manager and from the latter's
office to the press. Prominent busi

which an accident may occur usually
sit as members of such boards, and
