P. Neal from Thomas Ulmer who resides on Ten Mile, to the effect that a strange woman in a delirious Condition had been found by him on tne public ,road. Upon receiving the information, Dr. Neal drove to the place and by the initials upon a watch carried by the woman thought her to be the wife of George Nelson of Nampa, a fireman on the Oregon Short Line railroad, and the daughter of Or lin Jones, a well known Meridian citi zen. Governed by this belief, Dr. Neal took the unfortunate woman to the home of Mr. Jones whose daughter it developed she is. Until late yesterday afternoon she was in a highly delirious condition, but. during this condition and since, she has insisted that some strange man had struck her over the head. Since REFUSED TO FIEL A JIOUR ORDER GIVENBY CUT-RATEMESCHANT Nampa, April 10.—That the provi sions of the federal Sherman anti-trust law are to be rigidly enforced in their applications to commerce in this state was abundantly evidenced in this city ; last Saturday afternoon when a local ; grocer called up the mill'ng company j and advised it that his supply of flour was exhausted and that he desired an j order filled immediately. The com-| pany declined, consequent to the fact that he was cutting the price of flour and according to the aile liions of the company creating havoc in the local flour market. Upon the refusal of the company 1o honor his order, the grocer consulted his attorney, who advised the milling company that its action -as a viola tion of the federal law, and that he fepould fully protect his client. Evi dently impressed by the legal informa tion given, the grocer's order was at once honored by the company. The incident is considered by mem bers of the legal fraternity in this city as one which is likely *o prove of statewide importance, and to give a great impetus to the enforcement of this particular federal statute in all parts of the state. .Meridian, April 10.—At the regular feonthlv meeting of the Meridian grange held last Friday afternoon, communications of a similar natllre •were considered, but final action wasi deferred to an open grange meeting which will be held tonight at 8 p. m. in the Odd Fellows hall here.

She is still in a weakened condition and during the delirious interval was difficult to control. The entire inci dent is shrouded in mystery.

Mr. Walker Is an intensely force ful speaker in hfs more serious mo ments; dramatic in fervor when the deep, terrible problems of human woe are assailed, and equally as funny when relating his stories of various nations. The cartoons are second ary to the lecture and a running com ment is entertainingly given. The speaker's attitude toward the great questions relating to women and chil dren, presented as a part of socialism, was that of the profoundest sympathy and the most bitter alignment of the foes of weaker beings of society. A personal interview with the lecturer disclosed him to be a man of quiet, domestic habits and kindly nature. He found sealed in a circle of little children, making rapid sketches "of types of all kinds for the edification of his young friends.
