An official came from Salem this morning to get one William Butchek, charged with stealing a bicycle. Chief Wells had picked up the boy and the wheel yesterday afternoon, and placed the young fellow in jail.

He ilso tells us that the thin smoke p'ro luced by this friction of rubbing was used by the ancient Britalns for driv ing away devils and dissolving spells.' "Jet, says Dr. Young, "appears to be wood in a high state of bitumlniza- don. And certainly jet often appears with traces of ligneous structure. . At the same time there are specimens of oones which seemingly have been graoV aally impregnated w.ith and at last wholly replaced by this substance. Among the jet rock there is found a liquid hydrocarbon somewhat -resembling petroleum oil, which occurs in the cavities of ammonites, etc.. and is also sometimes found in nodules, the presence of which is generally sup posed to point to a rich vein of jet.

New Xork Post. - Snuff Spoons. All the world is familiar with snuff boxes, but snuff spoons are pretty lit tle refinements of which this genera tion has. hardly heard. Very probably they came into use about-two years after Sir George Rooke's expedition to Vigo bay in 1702. when he captured half a ton of tobacco and snuff from the Spanish galleons, and snuff thus became a common article in England. One of the characters Id a comedy published at Oxford -in 1704. entitled An Act at Oxford." by Thomas Baker, says, "But I carry sweet snuff for the ladies," to which Arabella re plies r A spoon too. That's very 'gal lant,' for to see some people run" their fat fingers into a box is as nauseous as eating without a fork." : In the forties and fifties of the last century snuf spoons were still in use on the Scottish border. They were of bone and of a size to go into the snuff box. People fed their noses, it was said, as naturally as they carried soup to their mouths. As late as 1877 a farmer at Norham-on-Tweed was seen using one. London Saturday Review. Born, Wednesday morning, Septem ber!, to Mrs. J. S. Russell, a daughter.

Calif.. where he will judge the live stock at the Ferndale fair, a point about twenty miles distant from Eureka, in the famous Eel river valley, Humboldt county.

That the English walnut thrives best in a wondrous depth of loam is a recog mzed fact, but that these - trees will grow and produce on any Willamette valley soil is indicated by various trees in this city. ' There are several trees of producing age and these have been yielding fair crops in recent years. At this time, one of these standing on the Con Gerhard property, corner of First and Jackson, is laden with fruit.. This tree is about eight years old and has received no attention calculated to help it in its growth. It is of fair size and hanging thick with walnuts. If the English walnut will grow where that tree stands and with no care produce such a quantity of good fruit at eight years of age, then there are hundreds, of acres of land in Benton county that might well be jut to wal . A Tramp of Resource. Much experience of thirsty tramps had caused the author of "An- English Holiday," J. J. Hissey. to foreknow' almost exactly what they would say to him. One day, when sending his motorcar slowly along a shady Eng lish road; he met one of this guild, who accosted him with the preliminary touch of his cap. Mr. Hissey antici pated him by exclaiming: : "I be mortal thirsty! Have you, good sir. the price of a glass of ale about you? j I've driven nearly fifty miles to day, and since the morning not a bite of food, ha.a. passed, my lips," . , (. The look of astonishment that'tramp gave me was a delight to observe. But this tramp was a man of ready re source, and, seeing 1 was a hopeless case, he rose to the occasion and promptly exclaimed, with what dig nity he could command and with a comically serious expression: f "If there were a policeman in sight I would give you in charge for begging, that 1 would."'
