The Futile Scheme of a Tramp,
An attempt was umde to wreck the
Tficoiua bound Northern Pacific train
nt Linton, seven mile north of Port-
hu .d, Ore. The train was -uddenly
flagged by a tramp named F. S. Tay
lor, who told a strange story of an en
counter with tsaln wreckers. He said
that while walking on the road to Port
land he saw three men piling old ties
and fallen tree high on the track.
When they saw him they put a pistol
to his head and made him take a seat
on. a log and keep quiet while they
'proceeded with their work. Their work
so engrossed thorn that he managed to
slip away unnoticed just In time to pre
vent a wreck.
Taylor was taken aboard the train
and treated like a prinoe. He wo sent
back from Centralia, and Sheriff Kolly
took chnrgo of him to get a description
of the wreckers. Taylor claimed that
tie Knew iiotiung about mo country,
but he was so minute lh his details in
describing the obstruction piled on the
track that the sheriff suspected some
thing. Finally, he turned to Taylor,
saying: "You did this." Taylor wilted,
mid confessed and told alL Ho said he
piled tho stud on tho track and pre
vented a wreck for tho purpose of be
ing richly rewarded by tho company.
He wo arrested and 1 now in lau.
There were 200 passengers on Uie train.

A BLOOD SUCKING PLANT.

engaged in hunting for botanical and
entomological specimens hi this swamp,
