INFANT IS STOLEN BY 18-YEAR-OLD GIRL New York, July 2 Alice Holier, the 13-yeur-old daughter of Mrs. Ag nes Holzer, of St. Louis, who is visit ing relatives here, was the cause of such excitement in the Bronx yester day that it was not until today that the population recovered Itself. Al ice's fondness for babies is so strong that she could not restrain herself when she saw a pretty little infant sleeping in a go-cart in front of a store in the Bronx, and she walked off with the infant. When the moth er came out of the store she set up a cry that her child had been kidnap ped, the neighborhood was aroused, police reserves from several stations were put on the case. Newspapers punished extra editions, detailing re porters on the case. Before the day was over hundreds of men and wo men became volunteer searchers, and ' every baby and its possessor was scrutinized. Later in UM evening Alice Holzer was found by a woman who had read the papers, at a point far removed from where the child was taken. Alice could not explain why she had taken the baby, except that she had always wanted one, and her father had jokingly said he would steal her one sometime. Sewing Headache. Bright Light Headache.

T PORTLAND MARKET! EDITOR TO TOUR INLAND EMPIRE Will Compile Impartial Statistics Concerning tlw Wheat Outlook Says That Yields Will He Good In Many Sections in Spite of the Dry Spring Will Soon Report on Con dition 0f Wheat Crop in Unmtillu County. Hyman H. Cohen, market editor of the Portland Journal, was In Pen dleton this morning for a few hours. He has been detailed by the Journal to make a tour of eastern Oregon grain counties to copipile Impartial statistics, on the wheat crop situation throughout the Inland empire. He left on the noon train for Walla Walla. Mr. Cohen says that notwithstanding the dry spring, good yields will be harvested in practically every, sec tion which he has visited. Of course there are some sections where there are many field in which the grain Is too short to be reached by the har vesting machinery. In speaking of the Condon coun try he says: "This section of Gilliam county will harvest about 750,000 bushels of wheat this year as compared with about half that number of bushels a year ago. "It would be unwise to estimate the exact average but present condi tions point to yields as high as 40 bushels, although this Is an extreme figure and some fields will not run more than six bushels. This latter, too, is an extreme. "Had it not been for the poor show ing in the northern part of the coun ty, Gilliam would put out at least 17 1-2 bushels to the acre planted. "Mustard and other weeds have taken entire sections. Fields thus af flicted have been abandoned for the season. "Ofli lesson taught this year is that this section needs fall sowing. Nine ty per cent of the wheat acreage of this section this year was sown In the fall months and the average yield of grain so sown is much higher than spring planting. "In the Mayville belt the county's best showing in wheat production is made. Some few fields of that dis trict will go as high as 40 bushels to the acre and 25 to 30 bushel pros pects are frequently met with." Around Arlington the Journal's staff correspondent did not find con ditions so favorable and he says that portion of the county will have little wheat to sell the coming season. "Adverse climatic conditions for two seasons have forced some grain growers to purchase enough wheat and hay to feed their poultry and livestock. It is no uncommon sight ! to see some of the ranchers of north ern Gilliam buy 50 cents or fl'a worth of wheat because there is no wheat In the hands of producers, and slim prospects are the portion of the com ing crop. "In some Instances the grain of northern Gilliam will run from 5 to 12 bushels an acre, but a larger por tion will run closer to the lower fig ure than the higher. Many fields will not be cut because even with the tempting prices offering or the grain, home of it is sci toatUrinf, and of such low growth that it cannot be cut. Arlington to Btckleton, "The best portion of northern Gil liam is on Shutler's flat, but eviin there the prospects are not alluring "The wheat from this city to Hlckleton, in Klickitat county, has fared somewhat better than this por tion of Gilliam, but much the best results were shown from fall plant ing. "Some of the fall sown wheat In that section will run from 15 to 25 bushels per acre, but spring grain will scarcely range more than 7 to 10 bushels. "Northern Gilliam has received no rain since March 2, and previous to that time the fall has been far be low tie- normal." In Sherman county, however, he found the crop conditions as com pared with those in former years, the most hopeful of any section of the Inland empire yet visited. He .is seeing Umatilla county wheat today and will probably have still blighter prospects to report from this section. "The crop year of 1907 has so far been the banner year of Sherman county, but the year of 1!)0! will un doubtedly meet If not surpass 1907 In the number of bushels of wheat marketed and financial returns," says Mr. Cohen. "There Is but one difference be tween the crop this year and the crop of 1907, In that the larger amount of wheat In 1907 was harvested in and near Wasco, while this year the larg est amount will be from near Grass Valley. Frosts have nipped several fields of grain slightly, but the heads do not show much more damage than Just the tip end. Rapid Growth Shown. "Fields that a month ago were i' mi . ded to be too shorl for machin ery to cut have made rapid growth because of the rains and are filling out the head nicely. The larger part of the acreage of this county will with a continuance of cool growing weather, even without more rainfall, make a crop much above the aver age. In fields that Ware generally spotted with what Is nown as little mustard, the wheat has overtaken and choken the growth so that it has disappeared." Fully 40,000 sheep have been or will be shipped from Wallowa county this spring and summer, ana a conserva tive estimate of the total returns Is $140,000. 1 CROP COlII AI L READY FOR CELEBRATION (Continued from Page One.) of the county will be played at Mat lock park.
