MYSTERIOUS RECLL'SE DIES. Drcwod as Bride for Half Century Wklowed on Wedding Day. One of the mysteries of Paris has heen solved by the death of Mme de Provlgny, which has opened for the first time In more than half a 'cen tury the house on Boulevard Polssom mlere known as the "house of mys tery." For 60 years and more the shutters of that house were never opened. Servants entered stealthily and It was known to be Inhabited by a recluse of great eccentricity, but Its secret was well kept until a few days ago, when the place was suddenly dressed In the black and silver trap pings of French mourning, and It was announced that Its aged and sorrow ful Inrtate, Mme. de Provlgny, was dead. She was an old lady of more than 70, and for the last half century she lived In that house the life of an an chorite, without a newspaper or com munication of any kind from the out side world. For 50 years Mme. do Provlgny wore white satin. She wort It on her wedding day and always dressed In white to the end. They had been married the same morning and the young husband succumbed to apoplexy an hour after the cere mony. When she recovered from the shock If, Indeed, she can be said to have ever recovered from It Mme de Provlgny had the house shut up, but she retained her servants on the con dition that they were never to to con front her with a living being and nev er to speak to her again. She did not know the trend of public events. Automobiles, electric cars and even railroad trains were unknown to her. She did not know that France was a republic. She had never heard of the Dreyfus case, of the death of Queen Victoria, or of any national or Inter national event. In her will she left her whole for tune to men and women over 60 and of good character. She left a large house In the country as a home for them and $2,000,000 for Its maintenance.

At one end of the valley one ditch passes under the other In a flume. PERSONAL MENTION REJECTED SUITOR SHOOTS. Had HavelJYou Defective Eyesight ?

Says Ills City Is Going to Spend $200,. 000 in Paving Tli Inks Bryun's Election Is Sure. That tho city of Lewlston will spend 1200,000 for street paving with in the next few months, perhaps Is the belief of M. D. Mills, a prominent business man of Lewlston, who pass ed through Pendleton today on his way home from the national demo cratic convention at Denver. Mr. Mills arrived from Denver last evening and was the guest of his un cle, W. A. Slddone, Northern Pacific section foreman In this city, while here. H6 looked over Pendleton's bltu lithic paving while In the city and is very favorably Impressed with It. Lewlston at one time decided to use wood block pacing, but after a thor ough investigation the city council found that It was a temporary pav ing at best and the council changed Its mind. The city will spend about $200,000 In street paving and It Is believed that bltullthlc will be adopted as all Investigations have tended to show that it Is really the most substantial and durable of all the paving materials. Mr. Mills is enthusiastic over the porspects for Bryan's election in the coming presidential election.

PULLMAN HAS STTiAXGE SPRING Flow Reduced One-Half Vhon Land Is lit Crop. A strange phenomenon In regard to the flow of water from a spring on tne fcirm of S. H. Breeze, five miles south of Pullman, Is attracting inter est. The spring Is In a field which has been In cultivation many years. Mr. Breeze says that In seasons when the land is In summer fallow the flow of water from the spring Is more than double that of seasons when the land Is In crop. The matter has been called to The attention of the experiment station staff of the Washington state college, and a scientific Investigation of the causes will be made. The theory' is that the grain, when growing, ab sorbs the moisture, which Is wasted when there Is no crop on the sround. C. W. Lawrence, one of the experi ment staff, Intends to make a study of the spring. SEASON OF 1893 LIKE THAT' OF 1908.

"THE ORANGE." GIRL IS CRIMINAL TOOL. Claims She W'ns Sent Out to Swindle Young Men. Through the partial confession of Gladys Wilson, a girl about 17 years old, the arrest of R. M Ellis and wife and Will G. Glllman, who, it Is al leged, have been using the girl as a tool in passing counterfeit bills in Tacoma and Olympla, was made pos- Ible. According to the story told to Of ficer Tumor of Olympla, who arrest-, ed Gladys Wilson In that city, she had been sent to swindle a young man out of his money. The proceeds were to be used In starting a small show troupe on the road, Mrs. Ellis being the star performer and doing the 'hula hula" dance. She also alleged that Ellis and GUI- man were guilty of passing confeder ate bills. According to A. Ruppe, the well known farmer living north of the city, the summer of 1895 was very similar to this present year, from a weather and crop standpoint. It was very dry the entire summer season and crops were light, In fact, much lighter than this year, and ranges were dry and water scarce. Mr. Ruppe brought to the East Or egonlan office today a clipping from the Daily East Oregonlan of July 23 1895, giving a resume of crop and weather conditions, as follows: The year 1895, or that phase of it concernng the weather was a remark able one in many respects. The sum mer was unusually warm, and the mean maximum temperature for the year was 55.6 degrees. The maximum was 107 degrees, which was recorded by Voluntary Observer Hilton on July 23. Excepting the year when the theremometer registered 109, this is the highest temperature ever taken by the observer. n August 2 the mercury ran up to 105. Contrary to the climatic freaks up on which the oldest Inhabitant lays so much stress, the winter of the year was comparatively warm. The low est temperature recorded was six de grees above zero, which Is comforta ble weather when a person takes into consideration the fact that only six or seven years ago the mercury drop ped to 24 below. In 1894 the people of Pendleton got along very well with about 16 Inches of rain, but this year Jupiter Pluvius was In a huinorsome mood and limit ed their supply to 10.47 inches. Snow fell to a depth of only 22.9 Inches, and the crops, therefore, did not re ceive the benefit of cool breezes very many months. The prevailing direc tion was westerly during 10 months, and southwesterly during November and December. Clear days were plentiful, there hav ing been 1S9. Of partly cloudy days there were 108, and of cloudy days 68. On 68 days .01 of an Inch or more rain fell. The weather for the month was: Maximum temperature, 58; date, 10th; minimum temperature, 8; date, 18th; mean temperature, 37.1; mean maximum temperature, 45.9; mean Copy of Junior O. A. C.
