Starg at the Star. The Star Theatre
was crowded to the doors last night to
witness the all-round success of the
Mack Swain Company in "The Little
Minister," one of the prettiest of all the
Scotch plays before tbe modern public.
Cora King Swain, as the Lady Babbie,
was the leading feature of the night
and was thoroughly supported as was
attested by the almost continuous ap
plause while the curtain was aloft. The
troupe is certainly making a strong hit
in Astoria, and the comedy-drama of
last night proved their unqualified right
to a generous patronage.

Morning Astorian, 60 cents per montu
The Morning Atorian takes pleas
ure ui ri'piiAluatitf the letter below,
knowing the wide spread Intercut Its
readers have in Oregon's famous car
toonist, lluouer Davenport, of whose
whereabouts for the past several months
there has been more or les conjecture!
The following very interesting let
ter has jii't been received by I B.
Geer, from his nephew, Homer leaven
port, the world famed cartoonist, who
went to the great desert in search of
Arabian horses of the purest strain.
Nearly all Statesman readers know
that Mr. Davenport is a Marion county
boy and raised in the Waldo hills near
Silverton. He is bringing over twenty
odd horses, and he has accomplished
what no other man ever did has gone
from an alien land to the desert tribe
and secured horse and brought them
away with tha consent of the tribes
that love their horses even as their own
children. Following is the letter:
"ALKPJ-O, Syria. Aug. 18, l!MMt.-My
Dear Uncle Bye: I write to say that
have just returned from the interior of
the desert; that while thin and ragged
I am well. The heat ran about 113 to
118 in the shade, but we stood it. I
am tired from the auddle, but have as a
reward the pick of all the desert trilte
Something seems to guide me, a on
meeting Akmut Ilaffez, the ruler of all
the tribes, he went personally with me,
and when the governor of Aleppo asked
me bow many soldier I wanted, I
told him none. So Haffej says that 1
brought smile instead of soldier to
the Bedowen. Thus I won their heart
and got horse and mare that no money
could have bought. To this W hearted
man I could not speak a word, still
when I told him the stories of Silverton
and of my mother and father, he told
me thing that show nip that mnps
only show the divisions of land and wa
ter that the brotherhood of nian runs
through all the race the world over.
We rode nights over the desert even
without a moon and they killed sheep
and we ate all day.
"I am anxious to get out of this old
citv. The filth is awful. The streets
are jut wide enough to let one car
riage down a street, so when they meet
someone has to back to the closest cross
street. We are hoping to ewape the
'Aleppo button,' a 'ie that comes on
the face of every one. Nothing can cure
it and no medical study has revealed
its cause. It lasts about a year, then
it disappears, leaving a white scar that
is called the 'Aleppo button.'
"Hope to start the horses and mares
tomorrow night for Beirut, 200 miles,
and once there I will ship to Naples;
thence to America.
"Of course I haven't had any news
from any part of Europe for a month.
There are no newspapers published
here, though it is a place of two hun
dred and fifty thousand people.
"I notice lots of gazelles pets in
vacant lots and the hyenas come to
the very edge of the town to dig into
graves; camel graves In particular.
"The governor of Aleppo lias just
made me another present; a 2-year-old
stud colt, the finest I have seen. He
came from the Oomusa tribe. lie is
bay, nearly fifteen hands high now.
"The heat is making me pant in this
house they call a hotel, and I'll quit
till I get to America.
"Give my love to everybody in the
hills. HOMER DAVENPORT."
