The principals to the tragedy had
been on nun.' than friendly terms fur
over icvcn years According to those
w«u acquainted with the couple,
they had been engaged to be married
for tome time, but the Inability of
Blum to secure a divorce prevented

About seven years ago Blum was

NEWS OF THE STATE
Drummer Chased by a Bear.
Seattle—While following a lonely
trail in the Cascade mountains last
week, A. R. Lanham, a salesman for
Fisher Bros., of this city, saw ahead
of him at a bend of the road two
full-grown bears and two small cubs.
Not wishing to miss an opportuni
ty of trying to kill a cinnamon bear,
he tied up his team and started down
the trail with his 30-30 Stevens. The
bears had evidontly scented trouble
and were making good their escape
when Lanham raised his rifle and
fired at the male bear. His aim was
good and the bear fell. Running
ahead with the intHntlon of captur
ing the cubs before they had time
to escape in the brush he soon had
one of the little bears in his hands.
Lanham decided he would » take
the cub hack to the buckboard and
ihen drive ahead and load the big
cinnamon into the rig. He had not
gone far, however, when he heard
something coming toward him. Turn
ing, he saw the bear he thought he
had killed moving ou him. Lanham
hugged the cub tight under one arm,
held nil rifle In the other and started
on the run for the ri«. The bear had
the beat of the race and he soon re
alized thai the bear would be up to
him long before he. reached the ritf.
lie turned and, placing the cub be
tween his knees, fired flve shots Into
the hear, which by this time was not
a rod away. He loaded the bear into
his rig and he resumed his drive.
Small Hoy Krscues Captain.
Aberdeen Captain Kelly, of the
steamer Lindsay, had a narrow es
cape from drowning as he started to
board his vessel. Returning from
town with his arms full of packages,
ho slipped on the narrow gangplank,
and scattering his parcels In every
direction, fell into the water, strik
ing the sheer boom in his descent.
He was stunned for a short time,
imi when he came to, struck out
and caught hold of the boom to keep
himself out of the water. He was
unable to reach shore and had to
hold on until help should come. Two
small hoys who were playing on the
dock appeared in view and the cap
tain hailed them. They were only 7
\ ear-old children and the hope of
rescue from their efforts seemed
rather remote. The captain told one
of them to go on board the ship,
fasten one end of a rope and throw
him the other. The hid obeyed and
the captain was able to draw himself
out of the ice-cold water. The boy
was handsomely rewarded.

Tied to Tree and Robbed.
Spokane—After being tied secure
ly to a tree in a lonely gulch three
miles from the heart of the city, at
noon Monday, James Dragoo, a rural
free delivery mallcarrler, was robbed
of about $6 8 of his own money and
150 of Government funds by a mask
ed and armed hlghwayuan.
"Look upon the degenerate now on
trial for his life in New York and aak
yourself wherein was this abominibie
product of our worst American condi
tions most unfortunate, and I think yo*
will agree with me that it was in be
ing freed from the necessity of work
ing and in the utter moral rottenness
developed from that stagnancy. We
in America have not yet learned how
'not to work' gracefully. They do
that better on the other side.
"And centuries of a leisure class,
mainly made up of the nobility, have
taught the practical English to utilize
this great store of inherited ability and
public spirit in the voluntary and hon
orable service of the state. We are
cursed with an irresponsible leisure
class, in process of formation, mainly
constituted of inheriting sons, in large
part devoid of this fine old public con
science to constrain them to serve the
people with their possessions and their
persons. There are splendid excep
tions; but I refer to that large class
that have a talent only for legacies.
"There are at bottom but two grand
divisions of men: Those whose life is
a makeshift, a policy for draft, a se
quence of accidents, beaded together a
little by selfishness and greed, and the
struggle for existence and those whose
life is a plan, a deliberate endeavor
to reach a goal, though it means per
sistence, sacrifice, hardship and long
continued and difficult effort; following
a star too often against head winds,
and a star cloud, covered, too. and in
"DEAD EARNEST" NOT KNOWN.
"There are many young men, aye,
and older men, too, who do not know
what working in dead earnest means.
They complain of being under a cloud;
but they are darkened by their own
shadow. They work with their eyes
on the clock. They are afraid to work
too long, or too much, or too well.
They are afraid that they will earn
more than their salaries. But the ten
dollar-a-week clerk who is afraid of
earning more than that sum, will al
ways be a ten-dollar-a-week clerk.
SUPERFICIALITY THE VICE.
"I have lived and worked enough
years in American colleges to know that
the American educational vice ia su
perficiality. It is deep-rooted and gen
real. We are smatterers. We touch
the surface of things. We gather
scraps and fragments of knowledge.
There are honorable and splendid ex
ceptions, but they are few. And we
need the discipline and the character
building and the mind-building that
comes from concentration and thor
oughness and mastering thought and
knowledge in dead earnest, instead of
playing with them.
"I am prepared for the usual stupid
answer, that we care not so much about
training specialists in this and that
minute subdivision of knowledge. I
| am not sure that we do not need these
same specialists if we are going to
make our academic halls something
'• rao'e than cold-storage depositories for
' rather stale systems and methods, in
tellectual clinics where facts are suc
cessfully and painlessly removed from
I the professor's brain to the student's;
!if our universities are to be the nur
series not the mausoleums of know
PLEADS FOR SERIOUSNESS.
"I plead in a frivolous, pleasure
seeking age for seriousness in serious
things. I ask for earnestness where
it fits and where it counts. I invite
attention to the fact that life is not a
farce or sorry jest, but a drama of in
finite moment, in which we, the play
ers, are also the playwrights and the
heroes. It is our first and last per
formance, without rehearsal or correc
tion or power to change a single work
or act, and the verdict is final.
"It is above all the spirit of relig
ion that hates make-believe men, sham
men, lukewarm men, men who do not
know the meaning of being in earnest.
And how we need today genuine men,
that have the spirit of God in them!
How we need them in the weakening
of men's backbones, in the moral chaos
that has set in in many quarters!
"It is our last all for men to 'be in
earnest' in religion. For a man to be

, and heat and power." -Dr. Harrison,
