The charm was a monogram containing the emblems of the I. O. O. F.. K. P. and A. F. & A. M. He left his hotel in San Francisco for the steamer fcr PoiUand, Oregon, having the charm then securely fas tened to h:s watch guard. When he readied his state room on the steamer the valuable trinket was gone, lie rushed back to the carriage ia which he had driven to the wharf, searching for the lest article but could find it neither ia the carriage nor on the way. After he had reached Portland in stroEing ever the city Lc met one of his fellow passengers on the steamer who was wearing a charm so similar to the one he had lost, that he exam ined ! carefully and found to his joy that it was really his charm. The gentleman who was wearing his rnijs--"K jewelry told him he had found it in the gang-plar.k as he boarded the vessel and cheerfully returned it to Dr. Henderson. Wednesday ot last week a serious Yiot was precipitated at the State In dustrial Home for Girls, . located at Chillicothe. The pretended cause of the riot and rebellion was the objec tion of 1 3 girls of the Missouri cottage to attend school during this hot weather, though it afterwards developed that whLkey, that had been furnished the g:rl3 by certain men working on the building improvement!. was the real cause of all the troub'e. In the tficrnooa of the day of the trouble then the girls were ordered to proceed to the school-room, a vicious crosveyed Llonde, who had been scat to thciisiitutioa from St. Joseph tor some crime, moved that they refuse to attend school any more until cooler weather, which motion was seconded by 1 2 other girls. The well disposed gills left the building for the school room, but no persuasion coold induce the 13 rebels to obey the commind of their superiors. They resisted with force every endeavor to cotvjuor their rebellion, and flaally it was found nec essary to bring xn the police power of tS ritv to overcome and remove them to separate cells in the institution.

If this statement should prove to be true the very severest penalties of the law would hardly be adequate punishment in his case. This incident illustrates the im policy of the legislature attempting to provide in one institution for unfortu nate but homeless girls, and a place of confinement for the criminal and vic ious.
