SALEM MAN ENDS LONG FAST FOR 34 DAYS, CLAUDE BARKER LIVE© ON AIR AND MOUN TAIN SCENERY. First Meal of Popcorn and Canned To matoes—Lost Fifty Pounds in a Month. SALEM, Or., Jan. 17. —With popcorn and canned tomatoes Claude Barker, the young Quaker of this city, finally broke his fast of 34 days' duration. Just as he claimed to be led by the Lord to abstain from eating, so he says, the Lord told him to eat and what to eat. He claims not to have suffered any undue pangs of hunger during the time he abstained from the use of food and says he enjoyed his first nourishment no more than he would have enjoyed his mid-day meal before beginning the fast and having three meals a day regularly. Aside from the fact that he lost 50 pounds in weight by his long abstin ence, he does not seem to have suf fered greatly. He took daily exercise and never failed to walk to town and back from his rooming place, which is about two miles out, and on the second of January he walked out to Rosedale and back, which is a distance of 17 miles. His mental activity did not seem to have been impaired, and he says that he never received so much inspiration from a study of the Bible as he did while fasting. He has always been of a deeply religious nature and never missed a church service of any kind and taught his Sunday school class regularly. Barker is a bright, intelligent young man and was graduated from the Westman (Indiana) academy at the head of his class. Up to .the time of beginning his fast he was working Tor the Oregon Nursery company of this city, having gone to work for that com pany soon after coming to Oregon from his Indiana home a few months ago. He did not seek notoriety in connection with his freakish conduct, but on the other hand seemed very reticent and only spoke about it when questioned. To questions, however, he gave frank answers, and there is no doubt but that he has abstained from food for the length of time he says he has. So quietly had the matter been kept that not even some of his closest neighbors knew of the circumstances until the facts had been given out by the Jour nal reporter. Two Midshipmen Dismissed.

CELEBRATE SANTA ANA DAY WASHINGTON VOLUNTEERS TO HOLD ANNUAL BANQUET AT SEATTLE IN FEBRUARY. The Washington Volunteer Associa tion has received a great many assur ances from men outside of Seattle that they will be present at the annual ban. quet and reunion of the gallant First Washington volunteer infantry on the night of February 3, when the anniver sary of Santa Ana will be celebrated in this city, says the Post Intelligencer. CoK John H. Wholley, the comman der of the boys in the Philippines, is now stationed at Mount Tamalpais, in California, and Lieut. Col. W. J. Fife is in southern California. Maj. Weisen berger died a few years ago, so that Maj. W. W. Canton, of Waterville, is now the ranking officer of the old guard in the state. Brig. Gen. Charles King, of Milwaukee, who was in charge of the First brigade of the First division of the Eighth army corps, who was present on a previous occasion, cannot be present this year, but will send his telegram as usual on the night of the reunion. The committee in charge of the ban quet, composed of Dr. Frank W. Her gert, Sherwood F. Gorham and Har vey J. Moss, is very enthusiastic over the. next meet, and figures on, over a huifdred of the boys to be present on Saturday night, February 3. Al though the date of the reunion falls on February 4, it was thought best to have the meeting arranged for the night of the 3d. so that it would be more convenient for the boys from out of the city to come to the affair. A programme of the speakers and the invited guests will be announced at a later date. THE EVENING STATESMAN, WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. TO PUNISH WIFE DESERTERS MORE RIGID LAW WILL. BE DE MANDED FROM NEXT LEGISLATURE. Seattle Charity Organization Will Take Up Subject and Present Bill to Lawmakers. A better law to reach men who de sert their wives—a law tbit will check the system of shipping public charges from one coumy to another—these are two of many matters which a state conference of charity may decide to recommend to the next legislature. Inasmuch as the state legislature meets next year, the directors of the Seattle Charity Organization society have discussed the advisability of call, ing a state conference some time dur ing the present twelvemonth to talk over needed changes in the laws. A state conference of charities and corrections was held two years ago and officers were elected at that time with the object of making the organiza tion a permanent one, but since then interest in it has lapsed. In discussing the reforms needed. Miss Anna H. Murray, general secre tray of the Seattle Charity Organiza tion society and secretary protem of the old conference, stated that a more rigid law regulating wife desertion should be passed. "A matter that should be taken up between charity organizations and charitably inclined persons in the dif ferent states," said Miss Murray, "is the matter of transportation of in digent persons. The system is much abused at the present time. "Too many communities, I fear, ship out their poor just to get rid of them. This makes these unfortunates a bur den on someone else."

Always keep carbonate of soda In the house. It is useful for many pur poses. For burns and scalds it is an excellent remedy. The surface of the burn should be covered with it, either dry or just dampened. It relieves the pain caused by the bites or stings of Insects. A small saltspoonful in half a tumblerful of water will relieve heartburn and Indigestion and, if taken with tepid water the last thing at night, will frequently induce sleep restless persons. Paper Basil. It Is well that housewives should know that paper bags are made of a compound of rags, lime, glue and simi lar substances nrfxed with chemicals and acids. When dry these can do no harm, but If allowed to become damp a paper bag is unfit to touch articles of food. Never, therefore, keep food that Is of a damp or juicy nature in a paper bag. In Making SteTT. Remember to ask your butcher for a little piece of marrowbone and put this in with the meat. The result Is a much Increased richness, and the bone costs nothing. It may be necessary to skim the olla podrida a little with blot ting paper before serving, but the fla vor will compensate for the trouble. A cleaning fluid may be made of 5 cents' worth of saltpeter, ammonia and shaving soap dissolved In a quart of rainwater. It is good fof a thousand things. It takes the grease out of car pets beautifully. Before polishing furniture rub It well with a cloth wrung out of lukewarm vinegar and water. This removes dust and dirt and prevents that cloudy ap pearance one so often sees. Figs that have become rather dry may be freshened by putting on a plate and keeping in a steamer until moist and plump. When lavender cannot be obtained oil of lavender with a little hot watei will provide the desired fragrance. Highest excellence In String Instru ments.
