ODESSA, Nov. 10.—Authentic ac
counts received here from various
points in Bessarabia show that thennti
Jewish outbreaks there followed the

defense were quelled by the troops.
Ninety per cent of the killed and
wounded were victims of the bayonet
and rifle bullets.

• a'trocitites similar to those at Odessa,
and .continued for two days. They
stopped as soon as the governor re
ceiveed an order from St. Petersburg.

wounded. Order is now restored.

ONCE A FOREST
TEKKOA, Nov. 10. —Blocks of wood
found buried 200 feet beneath the
surface of the earth aud ohauged by
chemical action to the hardest iockare
relics in the posession of Mrs. Augusta
Srehle, who has just returned from
Crater, Douglas county. The speci
mens were found recently while ex
cavating. The petrifications are so
perfeot, showing the knots, rings,
seams and grain of the wood, that the
variety of the tree from which tf.ey
were taken can be determined, which
is said by timber experts to have been
bull pine. The nature of the country
iv which they were discoverved iudi
cates the burial of the trees by volcanic
action. One of the largest pieces pos
sessed by Mrs. Stehle is 15xfi inches in
dimension and weighs twenty pounds.

Worse Than Men.
PORTLAND. Ore.. Nov. 10.—Card
playing by Portland society women
lias ceased to be a means ot relaxation.
With some it has become a vice, so ab
