' ' Portland, Oregon, Oct. 25, 1905 The two Mason Jar caps has been examined. . Upon examination the metal of the new Mason cap was found to be pure zinc. The small pin holes in the old Mason cap were undoubtedly caused by the action of vegetable acids. As a result the fruit in the jar must have been greatly contaminated with poisonous zinc compounds.

Georse Brown, wife of Georere Brown, a well-known rancher of southern Montana and northern Wyoming, was instantly killed by a bolt of ligntnmg yesterday while ridincr nn a hav rack assisticST her husband and his employes care for their hay before the storm. Mrs. Brown was quite a distance from her husband wlien the ttorm broke. There was a blinding flash, which seemed to envelope the wo man, stunning the hired man near by. The bolt apparently struck Mrs Brown on the neck and her clothing was ablaze in a moment. . - Her frantic husband made a hero ic eff jrt to extioguii-h the fire, bad ly burning his hands, through a .pair of heavy gloves,, but fanned by the wind, the flames enveloped the body, burning everything off with the exception of the woman's shoes and stockings. The flesh of the coipse -.was almost cooked in a number of places. Two black spots Miss Annie Hcod, aged 3o years, residing with her father, Robert Hood, and her mother, at 314 Quesn avenue, this city, committed suicide last night by throwing her self into the roaring refuse furi.ce of the Baty Shingle compmy at Anacortes.

About 8:3o o'clock last night the woman disappeared from the Lead better home, and some uneasiness was felt, as before going out soe appeared excited. An hour af'-r- ward the watchman at the mill saw a woman ascending the con veyer to the top of the furnace. He called to her but she walked steadi ly on. Arriving at the mouth of the fur nace she paused for a moment end then with a wild shriek leaped for ward, ihe watchman at once sum moned Mr. Baty and together tb-v ran back to the mill. As they wc -i.t the shrieks of the girl rent the air. Ihey climbed the ladder, Mi.-s Hood had gone up to raach the con verter and hurried to the opening. Lcoking down they could plainly see the writhing form of the girl as she madly waved her arms and cried out in her agony. For ten minutes these shrieks kept up until finally the flames ren dered her unconscious. The watch man and Baty secured hooks and attempted to drag the woman out but her struggling prevented thi?. The watchman after working a few minutes fainted at the sight and was forced to abandon the task. Mr. and Mrs. Hcod are at a loss to know what caused - the girl to mount the ladder, but are firm in their -conviction that it was curiosi ty and that her falling into the fur nace was an accident.
