42ND YEAR. OREGON, MISSOURI, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 23, 1906. NUMBER 28 The Flower Show. Not in the joyous spring. When every living thing Ls filled with joy and hopes anew. And all the earth takes on the hue. Of emerald when e'en the trees Burst into hlossom and the breeze Is laden with their sweet perfume Not thei you come Chrysanthemum. And now we homage jay. At your great shrine co-day; Nor rose nor lily can displace Your shaggy beauty in our grace. You are the grandest and die best: Your coming is the welcoruest: Your reign ls all your own, and now About your throne we humbly bow A e're glad you've come, Chr, santhemum. For ten duui;c3bivo ycaiti uavv luc , have the , . .... . .1 laaies or. our ;:ttie city, given cue people ' i j u a : . try their annual Chrysanthemum show, ' -, , . i and the how of 190o in every way came tin frr, ilia iivnanf atinna tt t h a mnmlmpa members 1 of the society, and the people. It is al ways such a pleasing sjciety event that it is ever looked forward to vith delight and pleasure. Old friends meet; sweet hearts meet; parents and children come to greet each other at the annual show of the Oregon Chrysanthemum society. Thf-y have ever been held during the second week of November they seem always to be "just ripe" at that time, and the 5, 16 and 17th were the days fixed for this year's show. The weather had been made a "special order" for the occasion, and the weather clerk "made good," by delivering the package on time, without defalcation or discount. The display was large, and. every nook and corner of the circuit court room was a veriiable bower of flowers. It re sembled the spectrum run wild, and when Phaeton drove the chariot of sun through Aurora's Kingdom the unu wrought havoc in the realm Df light, he i mixed no rarer hues, nor more profuse . cuauos ui uoauij, iu mau aicci. How beautiful. Imagine a fairy wand to wave, and from the realms of the j the Philippine islands is well known, past, the formal gardens to arise in ; We are decidedly in favor of letting Ja which walked the lovers of romance. : pan have them, but we would be in fa And again, imagine the same occult I Vor of putting up a fight rather than al power to bring forth, for their pleasure, low Japan to take the islands except by a bit of Flowery Kingdom itself, with all its accompaniments. And still again, let it materialize an ideal walk, in which may wander these lovers of the , olden days, screened from sight, yet with the whole of this beauti epread be- j foie their eyes, that they may feast upon it. ! Like a painting, it all is, when one 1 sees it, alone. Like some limcing of ! the days agone, when man was less ma-1 terial, and cared more for the beautiful j surroundings or his home than for the ! value of the land, and the price he might get for it in the market. A bit of old France, such as the posts sang, set down beneath the roof of a prosaic American building, and tilled with the flowers of Japan, and the cottage of that same iand, and the blending yet is perfect. What a wonderful thing it all is. And all the upon the picture time, let there enter ' the strains of sweet music, with melodies deaf to their hearts, soft and penetrating, while they walk about, and let the perfume of the flowers waft sweetly to them, ever and anon. Is it not imaginative? Too much eo. No. All this was there. And there was much more that it compels pause in the telling to recur on wcrds to ex- 1 press it Such a success. May the so- . ciety decide to have a show in 1907. i The committed appointed to make i the awards announced the following prize winners: Mrs. brankiP Hiode, largest flower, j given by The Sentinel.

It is said that a message wae received a week or two ago from one of our oth cers in the Philippines stating that some Japanese had beeu seen nosing round the islands and apparently taking notes aB ,f they were there for the Duroose of finding out what they could. The ofii- had jumped to the conclusion that they had been sent there by the Japanese government for the purpose of spying out the islands, even as Joshua and his companions were sent out to make a re port on the land of Canaan. The infer- ence waa that Japan was getting ready to pounce down bn the islands and take tnecn in Borne morning wnen we were not looking Our position in regard to a mutual and satisfactory arrangement. Neither do we think there is any im mediate danger that Japan will try to take the islands. The men who are at the head of things over in Japan are wise. They understand that Jar an has had all the war it can stand just at present. There are other things besideB men and nerve necessary to carry on a war in these modern days. Japan has the men and they have the nerve right. There are no better fighters all in the world than the Jeps, but they havn't the money. They were just about all in when the peace terras were arraigned between Japan and Russia. If that hadn't been the case .Russia would never have gotten the liberal terms she did get. Japan is not going to start a war with us not now but when the time comes that the Jans be- Have they are financially able, look out for trouble. Now is the time to deal witn japan in a irienaiy business way. Sell the Mikado the islands. Let him have lung time and liberal terms of pay ment; we don't need the money ju9t now, anyway. Mrs. Alice Maple left Tuesday for Meade county, Kansas, for a visit with relatives. ROBATE COURT .MATTERS.

Just now all that is asked is that the combination of the 70 companies which compose the trust be declared unlawful and they be restrained from further op erations under the trust system. Never theless, seven Standard magnates are named as individual defendants and the snerman law unuer wmcn tne suit is brought is of sufficient scope in the event of a verdict of guilt to Dermit of heavy fines and imprisonment. xne attorney general maKes a very clear statement of the case. He shows that the Standard Oil company of New jersey, is a noiaing company, owning all the stock of 70 subsidiary companies. These companies are separate only in oame. They are managed by the New Jersey board as so many branches of one company. Ihroueh the nower of the combination Standard Oil has ere ated a mount oly, selling 90 per cent of all the refined oil marketed in this coun try and also 90 per cent of all oil ex ported. It is also shown it dictates the price of oil at will, without relation to the cost of manufacture, aod through its railroad interests secures rebates which crush all possible competition. On Wednesday of last week, John D. Rockefeller and three of his associates were indicted under the criminal pro visions of the Valentine law in Ohio. Early last week there was a sensational slump in Standard stock. And these were only a few of the evidences of a general girdiug on of the public armor against the evils of this most powerful of trusts. How long it will be able to continue to operate io defiance of the law with the public so intensely aroused nly time will teli. Its owners have boasted that they are more more mighty than the government and in retaliation j Mr. Rockefeller's home state threatens to put him in jail. Prosecutions are be- ng carried on under a dozen different state laws and in many federal courts. Miss Julia.daughter cf Mr. and Mrs. John Donovan, of near Rosendale, Mo., as married November 1st to Mr. Edwin Vanhorn. The bride was born in this county, and her mother was formerly Martha Keller, and she has a number of relatives and friends in our county, who send her their sincere congratulations through The Sentinel. A DASTARDLY DEED. An Attempt is Hade to Assassinate Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Groves, of Mound City. Our people were shocked Tuesday morning, to hear the news that a cow ardly and dastardly attempt had been made on the life of Mr. and Mrs. Jo seph Groves, as they were quietly en joying the comforts of their home in Mound City. Mr. and Mrs. Groves live a retired life in an elegant home in the northeast portion of the city, near the standpipe. The evening chores had been finished, and Mr. Groves had taken up his evening paper to read. As is his custom, he placed the large read ing lamp in the south window, and lean ing back in a chair against the window casing, proceeded to read his paper. Mrs. Groves was seated in her easy chair a few fret in front of h.ni and near the ceuter of the room. At a few minutes before 8 o'clock, on Monday evening, Nov. 19th, a sharp ex plosion was heard, resembling the dis charge of a gun; the lamp in the window was broken into many pieces, and the glass flew all over the room, some of the pieces striking the right side of Mr. Groves' face, cutting several small gashes; the left eye of Mrs. Groves was penetrated, inflicting injuries that will likely cause the loss of the eye. Mr. Groves immediately arose and went to the aid of his wife, saying at the time, that the lamp bad exploded. Just at this time, a son about 12 years of age, who had been at the barn, came into the room, and declared he heard the report of a gun, and enquired its meaning. Dr. Miller was called, and it was soon found that shot and not glass had penetrated the eye of Mrs. Groves, which verified the statement of the lad. as to hearing the report of a gun. An investigation was it once begun. On the south side of the residence is a six-foot porch, the south window at which Mr. Groves was seated opens to this porch; the window blind was up nearly its entire length; there was snow upon the ground, and just next to the porch, on the ground, were discovered the foot prints of a person large, and answering that of a man's shoe. Some of the shot entered the west wall of the room, five to six .feet above the floor level, showing the shot to have been fired at a slight elevation from the ground at the porch; the glass in the window was shattered into fragments, and the evidence was conclusive that the tract's were made by the person fir ing the shot. The first step taken after this tempor ary examination, was to call Prosecutor Blair, who took the midnight tram and was soou at the scene. The Fulton bloodhounds, of Beatrice, Neb., were sent fur and they arrived Tuesday and were pur to work, and they followed the trail from the porch to a buggy track, about one-fourth mile from the resi dence, and here the trail wast lost. Investigation led farther, and they found an empty double barreled shot gun, in 'a small creek that empties into D .vis Creek.nul far from the Groves res idence; the dog took up the trail here anin, and followjd it for a short dis tance, and they were again called off. The gun is of a Remington, 12 bore make. Every effort is being made by the au thorities to hunt down the guilty party, and sooner or later, ' murder will out." Mrs. Charley Bridge and daughter, Opal, returned to their home in Ham burg, la., Sunday, after a short visit with her parents Ed. Raiser and wife. F. F. Oerly, who is farming the E. K. Christensen place, in Nickeil's Grove, northeast of Oregon, passed through Oregon, one day last week, from Forest City, and in his wagon had a very fine male hog, that we are informed he bjught at the Kansas City Live Stock Show, and for which he is said to have paid $500. The breed we did not learn, but the animal was 18 month's old and weighed 550 pounds. Mr. Oerly is up to date in everything that pertains to the best, and we wish him success with this fine animal. 1 Deputy Game and Fish Warden, W. H. Sparks, who has been in charge of the seining at Big Lake, for several weeks, came home Wednesday of this week, having stopped operations on ac count of cold weathar. Following is the catch for week commencing November 11, and ending November 17; Buffalo, 8, 700 pounds; Carp, 4.725; Schooner Cat, 515; Gar, 6,200; Shad, GOO. The forego ing was number of pounds of the varie ties mentioned, and the following num ber of each of the following varieties caught: Cat fish, 162; Crappie, 253; Rock bass, 77; Black base, 5G; Pike, 52. He said they caught eome of the finest Crappie he ever saw. Next week we will give the total catch for the entire time tbej were at work.
