It was Just getting dark when I turn ed into Blueberry onvmy ditch going up to the dam to shut the water off for the night. The weed* are rather thick at tills point, on my ditch, and Just where tho ditch takes a curve I encountered the cub. I know I sur ; prised him. for he Jumped up on his hind legs and showed fight. I could not help admiring his courage, but said he was using poor Judgment, as I had the shovel and was sure to have the best of the battle. I sailed in and broke his guard and cut a gash in the side of his reck from which the blood started freely. He fell and I Jumped back to aeo what he would would do. He got his feet and was coming for me. This time I met him with the club end of the shovel on top of the head and he fell again, nev. er to arise until I picked him up and packed him home. Ho weighed 50 pounds and no doubt would have given me trouble If I did not have the shov el on my shoulder. I fried his liver for breakfast, and I I ate his heart and kidneys for sup i He dressed twenty pounds of as nice as meat as I ever ate. I am sorry It had not lasted longer. So ended my fight with the only boar that was over foolish enough to face me.

Phone 193 ARMENIAN WOMEN DROWN CHILDREN LONDON, Oct. 4.?"The Turks are gradually but effectively exterminat ing the Armenian people," asserts the Dcdoaghatach correspondent of the Times. "The modus operandi of the Turks Is to send from each Armenian village day by day as many persons as a train can carry. When they ar rlvo at Konlsh, or some adjacent sta tion they-are turned out and an escort supplied over the Taurus mountains. "Once on the other side they are supplied with enough food /to last them but a few days and told to con tinue on the Journey to the neighbor hood of Mosul, as thoy will now bo In i perfect safety. But In point of fact the region is nothing but a desert,and before many hours marauding bands of Khurds or Bedouins rob and pillage these helpless men, women and chll | dren so that those who aro not actual ly slain, die of hunger and thirst Not one ever reaches tho intended desti nation, for should one try to escape in another direction Turkish Bhop herds have orders to shoot them on sight. Mothers Drown Children i "Tho consequence is that many dis tracted mothers throw their children into tho Euphrates river rather than see them suffer. Some even sell them for what they will bring before they start on their Journey. "A widely known American mission ary, who arrived at Constantinople the first week In September, declared he saw as many as '5,000 Armenians collected around one station awaiting to be sent on this Journey from which none would ever return. The attack* upon the Armenians are said to be excused upon the ground that they have assisted in the occupation of the town of Van." The Chronicle prints what it declar ed to be accounts from eye witnesses of the Armenian massacres, asserting that besides many thousands killed a half million have been deported In a systematic manner by local author ities, while thousands of others have been imprisoned. The charge Is al ways made that after the men are massacred the women and children are sent Into slavery to be converted to Ialaroism. PORTAGE MILL MAKES LUMBER FOR RAILROAD VALDEZ, Oct. 13.?
