That sytematic shop lifting was go ing on in this city has been for some time known to drygoods merchants and their clerks, but the fact was not re vealed to the authorities until today when two colored women were arrested and a quantity of stolen goods recover ed and identified. The first notice received by the au thorities that crooked work was being done and that many of the larger retail establishments were being victimized, was when a representative from the large dry goods house of Jarrell. Bal lard & Co.. called at Justice Spencer's court this morning and swore out a warrant against Maggie Hayes, a color ed woman, charging her wiih theft. The complaint was given to Officer Juan Franco to serve and he soon found the Hayes woman a few steps from the doorway of the White House store. He took her into custody but found not stolen property in her poss ession. He took her to a hack room of the magistrate's office and there pro ceeded to investigate further. Some thing bulky beneath the woman's skirt ied the officer to believe that she had a parcel of goods concealed thereunder and a closer search brought to light a fine silk underskirt, which had been rolled up in a bundle and hidden be neath the woman's clothing. The prop erty was identified by the White House people as having been taken from their store a few moments before. Mrs. Wright, better known as Annie Rocney. the wel Iknown colored wom an, was with Maggie Hayes when the latter was arrested and as soon as the Hayes woman had been taken to the county jail a search warrant was Is sued for the premises of both Mrs. Wright and the prisoner. Maggie Hayes lives on South Oregon street and a dozen or more new towels and other articles that had never been used were found at her residence and seized. These were afterwards identi fied by .T. Calisher as having come from his store. Nearly every retail dry ooris man in the city was called in by the magistrate and asked to scrutinize the goods be fore Mr. CiPher finally identified them by means of his cost marks. George Harold was detailed by the police department to aid Constable Franco in working on the case and they visited the home of Mrs. Wright, in the alloy between Oregon and Kansas :-reets together. There they found a large quantity of new goods, such as men's shirts, under wear, fancy colored underskirts and dress patterns which had never been cut. When taken before the magistrate Annie Rooney vehemently denied that she had stolen any of the numerous ar ticles found in her possession. "I'll fight." she said, "but I won't steal." The goods in possession of Annie Rooney wer eidentified by a half dozen storekeepers. Anne contended that she hat! purchased them at various times and places with her own money. One dress goods pattern in the bunch, Fhe said she had received on the Christmas tree last December. Annie was sent to jail. Annie Rooney in Jail. Annie Rooney 's face wore a dark frown when she was taken to jail and she appeared to be troubled. After be ing locked up she partially disrobed and was taking her ease when an as sistant turnkey came along and un locked her cell door. "I've come to let you out." said he. "You'se foolin' me. white man." said Annie, rolling her eyes at the sub jailer. "No. I ain't, you can go," replied the man as he swung the door open with a violent creak. Annie siezed her shawl and made a bound toward the door, but was stop ped at the threshold. She sat down and scowled at the man who had jol lied her. "What they pot you in for. Annie?" he asked. "Cause some old white boy said I took a skirt didn't belong to me." ""Son didn't take it. did you?" "I done told you I didn't take it." Suit Results From Death at Smelter.

ORCHARD AND GARDEN. . Grapes r ripe as soon as the end of the stem Is ripe or brownish.' ' Generally .. the cherry after being fairly started to grow needs no prun ing. Rob any tree of its foliage during the growing season and the tree Is greatly reduced in vitality thereby. It should always be remembered that whatever tends to build up or promote the general, health and thrift of the trees will also aid materially In keep ing them free from disease. When the apples begin to drop off from the trees is the best time for turn ing the sheep or hogs into the orchard. Both will be benefited and a large num ber of insect pests be destroyed.
