Rainey has a Bad Attack The grafting pseudo-editor the Review used up considerable space in last weeks issue of his corrupted sheet in trying to ex plain to the dear public why it came about that he plundered the county for $1658.25 and took bit ter exception to our publishing the amount he received for a little over three weeks work in his sec* ond rate print shop. The personal pollution with which he besmirched hissheet has nothing to do with the facts in the case, and Rainey would like to wiggle out of the limelight and into the shadow by throwing out a batch of criticism on us. Any printing office in the county would have been glad to receive the county work which he turned out, at one-half the price hecharg ed and considered that they receiv ed top notch price for their work. Rainey deliberately lied when he said that this work was the first he had done for the county as he had the county printing at Hayes and has always had considerable of the county orinting to do while pro prietor of the Review, and he would undoubtedly he in the trough lengthwise all the time if ther«* was a chance.

With moderate receipts of fat cattle herei and a strong demand from order buyers for independent packers and butchers, the decline reported from oversupplied outside points did not enter the trade here. There was a weakness on Monday but by Tuesday, this had been ful ly regained. While all grades shared in the improvement, it was apparent that cws and heifer. were being favored by beef men Beeves are quotable at $4.75 *6.50 butcher stock #3.75 $5. 25 canners and thin cows $2.75 $3.50 veal calves $8.75 $7.75 and bulls and stags $3.75 $5.00. The undertone to the stocker and feeder trade has been even more bullish than that of killers. Deal ers had a good country trade last week and with a light run and fa vorable weather, prices have ad vanced 10 15c this week.

A unique papyrus document has Just come Into the possession of the Ber lin museum, which already owns one Df the finest collection of papyri In the world. It was unearthed at Fayum, Egypt, and is distinct from the papyri found there in that it is an original de cree of the Roman governor of the Egyptian provinces, whereas all the other documents found there, though highly interesting, are mere copies of the originals. According to the official description It is a letter dated December 27, 209 A. D., from the Governor Subatlanus Aqulla, who had an evil reputation as persecutor of the Christians, to Theon, the administrator of the Ar Hmoean region (now Fayum), to the effect, after the usual formal greet ings, that "Niger, the son of Papi rius, sentenced by Claudius Jullanus— vir perfectissimus—to live years penal servitude In the stone quarries is to bt released, his sentence having expired. In the eighteenth year of the Emper Din Lucius Septimus Severus, Pertina* the Great and Marcus Aurellus AntO uius, this first day of the month Tybi." Penal servitude in the Numidian quarries was reckoned after the death sentence. It was Inflicted for robbery of temples, wilful firing of crops, sell ing secret philters and betrayal of Ktate documents. Convicts had half their heads shorn, were heavily shack led and underwent terrible torments lruru exposure to the blazing sun and ifjsufficient food, as may be seen from the Epistle of Bishop Cyprian of Car thage, who a few years later, (luring the reign of the Emperor Valerian, wrote to the Christian convicts in those same quarries consoling them to their terrible sufferings. GREYHOUND JOINS COYOTES Pet of an Oregon Farmer Responds to the Call of the Wild. A once tame greyhound, owned by Martin Smith of Sandy, has become wild and now lives with the coy otes It formerly chased in the sur rounding hills. It has been three* years since this greyhound heard and responded to the call of the wild, and it has never ven tured back to his old home in Candy except tb come to the outskirts to steal chickens from hen roosts. The companion of this greyhound is a coyote and they have frequently been seen together running through the outskirts of Sandy. Several per sons have tried to get photographs of the strange couple, but have failed. The greyhound has lost all desire to return to his former home and has become even more wild than his com panion. The animal has quite a his tory, having been raised from a puppy In the neighborhood. One day he dis appeared from his home and several weeks afterward was seen with the coyote which has been his constant companion ever since.—Portland Ore goaiaa. Paint Made of Smelts.

From time Immemorial caricatur ists have made use of the common observation that theie is in certain human types a dei iJed resemblance to familiar animal. A notable ex ample was that 01 Louis Napoleon, whose brooding, acquiline countenance was readily convene*, into a bird o& prey sometimes the French eagle, but oftener and more strikingly a vulture preying upon France. Tlie dignified and venerable Charles Darwin accepted an observation of tills sort as applied to himself and with a humorous perceptlo of its co i incidence with his favorite theories, while the resemblance between the countenance of Paul Kruger and that of an exceedingly sagacious gorilla was more than once remarked. An amusing discovery of unhuman likeness was related by a friend of the late Sir Henry M. Stanley When Stanley visited the Karaguas. an Afri can tribe rather above the average In intelligence, he had with him a fine bulldog whose pugnacious counte nance possessed all the unlovely cha^ acteristics of the breed. Now It appears that the Karagusflt gave much attention to this beast, and their chief, before parting with the Mte men, ingenuously pointed outvan odd fact that he had observed. The Karagua men. flat faced, snub nosed and thick lipped, looked, he thought, much like the English dog while the half wild Karagua dogs, clean cut. keen eyed and long nosed, looked, much more than their mat ters did, like the Englishman. Whether Stanley, who had every right to think well of his own per* sonal appeafance, relished this com parison or not he could not do other wise than take It in good part, and he had sense of humor enough to pass it on for the amuf=empnt of others after ho got home—Harper*'. FATNESS AND TEMPERAMENT Climate, Not Laughter or Good Tenfr per. Is Cause of Stoutness, Says Professor. "Let me have men a boat me are fat." So said Caesar, who plainly believed that fatness was a question of temperament and soul. It Is, In deed. one of the t.hlng9 which the most of mankind vaguely believe that fat people are, on the whole, easy going, comfortable and good to live with. But. says the Family Doc tor, If we art to folic Professor Lyde. it is all a mistake to suppose that fatness and temperament are connected. What makes people fat is not. as the adage has It, laughter or good temper, but climate. "FVom one end of Denmark to the other," says Professor Lyde, "you would not find a really thin man," which seems rather a huge generalization, even for a pro fessor. But It Is supported by reasons. The people, we are told, live in warm buildings and feed qn milk and cer eals. Moreover, the climate of. the country has not the weight reducing Influence of warmer and drier leads. So that the men "get so lazy that they will not take the trouble even to cut their food."
