Judge I. J. Lichtenberg, of Lopez,
who has leases of the military reserva
tion on the north end of Lopez island,
lias also lately secured a lease of Canoe
island, a small island between Lopez
and Shaw islands. Canoe island con
tains an area of about forty-three acres,
which is leased at the nominal rental of
$1, with the provision that the lessee
must be prepared to quit the reserva
tion at any time the department may
decide it needs it for military purposes.
Mr. J. I. Oldbam, old batchelor, 73
years of age and residing alone, was
found dead in his cabin near Deer Har
bor, Orcas island, last Sunday evening
by Mr. Winfield Scott, a neighbor,
who at once reported the matter and
asked that the body of deceased be
well looked after and the proper au
thorities notified. Messrs. Ed. Cad
well and Henry Cayou sat up with the
remains Sunday night, and Monday
morning came here for the purpose of
notifying the coroner and county at
torney and also to get a casket tor
burial. As it has often been stated by
those who knew him best that he was
frequently troubled with his heart, and
as nothing unusual appeared about his
premises to indicate foul play, the
coroner deemed it unnecessary to hold
i any inquest and simply ordered that
he be buried at once. Deceased was
an old California miner, having gone
there from the east during the '49 gold
excitement and he | remained in Cali
fornia until 1866 when he V came to
Orcas island where he resided until his
death.
On Tuesday, Edwin H. Barnes,
who was arrested about ten days ago
on the charge of criminally abusing
his own daughter, Minnie .Mabel
Barnes, was brought before Judge J. P.
Houser on an information filed by
Attorney King, accusing; him of the
crime of rape. Barnes plead guilty, to
the crime as charged and was sentenced
by the court for a term of fifteen years
at hard labor in the penitentiary at
Walla Walla. It seems that < Barnes'
daughter has been an inmate of the In
dian school in Oregon for the last five
years, but about a year ago her father
sent for her on account of the ill health
of his wife, i who ; died : last January.
Some time during the month of Octo
ber last Barnes accomplished the ruin
of this daughter, who is only a child 16
years old, and under the 1 law defining
crimes of this J nature, is under the age
of consent. Barnes is about 59 years of
age. We think the punishment in
flicted by the court in this case is em
minently just, for the felony with
which he stands V self-convicted s before
the court is one of the most bestial, de
grading and revolting! known to the
law or ; the moral 1 sense ,of I mankind.
The unfortuate girl is not blamed in
this matter *as she 1 was coerced and
threatened by her unnatural father if
she made \ his crime known. *•: She has
been given a refuge and shelter and is
now kindly cared for in the home of
Mrs. Henry Cayou, at I Deer Harbor.
The county officials who have had the
ferreting S out and prosecution of this
case, together V with ; those j citizens lof
Deer Harbor who so efficiently assisted
them in the matter, deserve great credit
for the . prompt manner in which tnis
case has been;handled^; -

NATURE LIKE SHYLOCK
The Merciless Creditor Demands That
AU Debts be Full j Paid.
RESULT A PHYSICAL WRECK
How Liquor Drinkers Borrow Strength
from the Bank of Health at Usuri
ous Bates. The Right Remedy.
Nature is an inexorable accountant.
She will lend strength and energy, but
when the debt is due she collects the full
amount, with a ruinous interest.
A mau feels the need of more vigor of
nuscle, more vivacity of mind, than he
has naturally. He has borrowed bodily
capital and he goes on repeating the
loan from time to time. One day his
merciless creditor demands a settlement.
There is little to pay with, but Nature
levies on everything, leaving, when the
debt is paid, a wrecked body and des
ponding heart.
There is small need to argue with to
man addicted to strong drink. He knows
better than any temperance orator in the
land what an infernal habit he has fallen
into. He realizes perfectly that h e is
hopelessly hadicapped in the race for
riches and honor.
Dr. Day, of Boston, says: 'The effect
of vicious alcohol indulgence is disease of
the body; sooner or later it must suc
cumb. Disease of the mind is not far off
it may be delirium or insanity." '
Dr. Formad, of Philadelphia, examined
the bodies of 250 hard drinkers. Nearly
ninety per cent had fatty livers; sixty per
cent had diseased brains and inflamed
stomach, while not quite one per cent had
normal kidneys.
Statistics may appeal to a drunkard's
reason. They may scare him for a time,
but they will not keep him sober. He
has a disease, and he must be treated ac
cordingly. The most successful and in
telligent treatment for the cure of drunk
enness is that perfected by Dr. R. A.
Gunn, M. D., 41 East 21st street, New
York City. Dr. Gunn has devoted many
years to the study of the physiological
effects of alcohol on the system, and now
offers the results of his investigations as
a positive and harmless cure for all kinds
of alcoholism.
A conspicuous advantage of this treat
ment is that it may be administered by
the sufferer at home. He does not have
to go to an institution to be formerly
classed among sots. Drinkers who have
despaired of freedom find in this treat
ment a complete emancipation. It
strengthens the digestive organs and
whets the appetite so that food is taken
in sufficient quantities, and turned into
healthy tissue. It utterly destroys in a
short time the taste for liquor. What
was once an object of passionate desire
becomes a loathsome thing. For full
particulars address as above.
