will run north to the Columbia river at

WRECKED BY MORPHINE
Jiidsr Martin Grant* Wife of Promi
nent Lincoln (omit)- I'liiMriiiii
A tragic story of a brilliant mind
wrecked by the use of drugs was told
in Superior court at Davenport last
Friday, before Judge Martin, of Wenat
cliee, who was setting as special judge,
when the wife of Dr. B. F. Vaunt was
granted a divorce.
The court room was crowded with
spectators as two life tragedies were
unfolded in the course of trial.
With his muscles twitching and his
mind wandering under the influence of
powerful drugs, to which the well
known physician had become a slave,
the defendant in the action paced up
and down the courtroom and tried to
talk to his lawyer, his wife and the
judge all at once. Mrs. Vaunt, who
shows the marks that trouble made up
on her brow, sat silently throughout
the proceedings, occasionally giving
vent through tears to the grief that was
The history of the case would serve
as a warning to those who allow them
selves to become addicted to some de
stroying habit. For the past 20 years
Dr. Vaunt has conducted a medical
practice from Wilbur that extends for
miles in all directions. His skill as a
physician and a surgeon is well known
all over the Big Bend country. During
his residence in Wilbur the doctor has
accumulated a fortune of 830,000.
Fourteen years ago the overworked
physician began the use of morphine. i
This became a habit and to-day cocaine :
and chloral hydrate are required to sat
isfy that habit.
About three years ago the conduct of
the physician became such that his
friends persuaded him to go to a pri
vate sanitarium in Portland for treat
ment. While In Portland and while
on the ••■ay Im es.-aped and storied for
$1 00 Per Year
home. On ths train going to Spokane
the aftlieted man began to shoot with a
revolver from the car windoW. He said
he was practicing to kill semi of his
enemies in Wilbur.
He was picked up in Spokane and*
taken to Davenport. Here, but for the
pleading of his wife, he would have
been committed to the asylum at Med
ical Lake. Mrs. Vaunt came to Daven
port and pleaded to be allowed to take
her husband home. Her request was
granted, and later Mrs. Vaunt took him
to Portland, where he again refused to
enter the sanitarium.
Afteward the doctor became violent
and was committed to the asylum.
There, where the drug wastlenled him,
che patient became rational, and
through the Intervention of Spokane
friends he was released on a writ' of ha
After a time, according to testimony,
the doctor took up with other women
and his faithful wife finally sought a
During the progress of the trial the
doctor left the room several times to
take an injection of the drug. He be
came violent and offered to fight his
attorney, H. N. Martin, in open court.
While upon the stand the husband ac
cused his wife of immoral conduct. The
neighbors of Mrs. Vaunt say that she
is a noble woman and a devoted wife.
The charges of the defendant were not
supported by a single witness.
Judge Martin, of Wenatchee, who
presided at tbe trial, granted the de
cree and gave the mother the custody of
the only child. The father is required
to pay $20 a month toward the support
of his child nntil it is 18 years of afe.
Mrs. Vaunt was given the farm, con
sisting of -V.'O acres of land, estimated
at 113 an acre. There is a mortgage of
$5000 against this property. The plain
tiff was given four-iiftbs of the 160 lots
of Vaunt's addition to the town of Wil
bur and also the household furniture.
Dr. Vaunt was granted one-h'fth oT the
addition lots, the balance of the city
property and all the personal property.
It is estimated that the plaintiff recived
more than one half of the property.
The Spartan character of the Japa
nese father may be gathered from two
facts mentioned by Consul Diagoro Goh
in the admirable address on family re
lations in Japan which he delivered be
fore the Japan society.' The Japanese
chiH calls its father ''Gemou'" and its
mother "Jibo" —which mean "strict
father" and "benevolent mother'"—and
Mr. Goh quoted 3 Japrtntse boy who
classified the Japanese father as one of

The bark of the chittim tree
has proved a considerable source
of revenue to the people of Wash
ington. The bark is used in the
manufacture of a valuable medi
cine called carscara segrada, en
tering largely into the treatment
where there is chronic torpidity
of the liver and bowels. In the
vicinity of Kalama, this state,
chittim trees are begining to peet
and several gatherers are pre
paring to go to work. A dis
patch from Kalama says:
"The chittim bark business is new on
the Kalama river, only small amounts
having been peeled in former years.
The supply is limited and will rot last,
more than two or three yeai*9. (
"A great deal of hark will be peeled
this year by linns and syndicates hav
ing sufficient capital to hold their pro
duct until the price suits them.' Chit-'
tim bark cannot be used for medicine
until it has been peeled two years,
hence it will enhance in value by keep
