KIJ-lI'HANT BTOPB TRAIN
fulls Signal Which Halts Fourteen
Passenger Coaches at 3 A. M.
Taking hold of the bell rope on the
North Coast Limited train, "Mike,"
an elephant which spent last week in
Tacoma, tcave the signal which
brought the big train of fourteen
coaches to a dead stop this side of
Napavine at 3 a. m. this morning.
For a few moments following the
stop a wave of excitement passed over
the train crew and passengers. The
spot was a lonely portion of the road,
and as the mystery for the order to
stop could not be run down, a fear
ran through many that an attempt
was on to loot the train. The mo
ment the train stopped a brakeman
leaped off with a lantern which he
planted several hundred feet behind
the train, while Conductor Young
stormed from coach to coach to find
out what was wrong. Engineer
Payne and the liremen both declared
three sharp, preemptory pulls ol the
bell rope had been made.
Finally, while nervous passengers
were seeing visions of ruling robbers
sweeping down upon the train from
the dark landscape, three additional
jerks were piven to the bell :-ope,
and then Engineer Payne demanded
an explanation. It was then that the
baggageman excitedly leaped to the
"Boys, its thU elephant. He's
been twidling with the rope for miles
back, but I didn't think he had sense
enough to give the signals. But he
just now grabbed the rope with his
trunk and yanked it to beat the

IMPOUNDS OWN TEAM
E. T. Nobles, a well-known lumber
man of Bellingham, is today in the
woods to avoid the friends who want
to ask him about a little feat he
pulled off yesterday.
The firm bought a team of horses
Saturday and sent an employ to find
a pasture for them over Sunday. He
located Noble's pasture, where his
fine blooded milkers are kept, and
turned in the horses. Noble uis
covered tne animals and wrathfully
led them off to the pound, knowing
nothing of the firm's buy or that the
horses were one-third his property.
He later learned of the true stale
of aflairs, bougie a box of rigars and
went to the woods until such time
as his friends shall forget the inci
dent. Before going to the tall uncut
he bailed out the horses and restor
ed them to the green pastures.

of her husband, Panamint Joe, an

farmers can now sell their products
on the streets of Klamath Falls, the
peddlers from Ashland can peddle
their fruit and the auctioneers and
hawkers can ply their trade undis
turbed or without paying a license
into the city treasury, for the city
council has repealed the hawkers'
and peddlers' license ordinance. It
was a question whether the ordi
nance could be enforced if anyone de
sired to fight it, and, besides, a num
ber of the members of the council
were opposed to making the farmers
pay a license to come here to dispose
of their farm products, and the re
sult was that the whole ordinance
was wiped out and the city thrown
open for everyone to do business.
