In the first Williamson trial the two men who hung the jury offered to convict Gesner and Biggs if the other juror3 would acquit Williamson. The same proposition was made by some of those fpr ac quittal in the late trial.

Tt- l'c knrtTirn rYTT f Vi o f fTio Ata. apreeahlv hot davs of tnrn or three 1 weeks ago were more fatal days in Willamette than any known in a long time. They were fatal finan cially, in that they played havoc with the wheat crop". All grain seems to have then been -in the dough. The intense heat of the period, with the mercury soaring at 102 degrees in Corvallis, arrested , the filling process and resulted in a shrunken berry. This is the theory- of nearly all farmers. It is al most the first time in Willamette in which a few days have done serious damage to growing crops. An in cident that added to the reduced yield of grain is doubtless the aphis - according to the view of some farm ers, who think the bugs did con siderable injury. How glorious to be a small boy, not for the swimmings, not for the juvenile atHletics, not for the hours with nothing on the green earth to do, not for the fun of chas ing cats or tick-tacking the neigh bors, but just for reveling in those theories of life and circumstance for which urchins have always been famed.- For instance, here is the way, the secret soulful way, mind you, the small boy has of getting - rid of warts. It is what he calls 'charming them." When the pro cess is concluded, the wart is said to be "charmed." It is done thus spit on a piece of paper, wrap the spit inside and leave the package on the corner of a sidewa'k or at the forks of the road. If some body comes along and picks up the paper, the wart is a goner, because it is thereby "charmed." Accord ing to all small boy authorities, it is a cure that never fails.

Three years ago it was in clover. Then it was crop ped in oats, aud last Autumn it was sown to wheat and clover. Of the clover, in spite of the extra dry year, there is now a stand.
