He Saw Snakes.
Emerson Kelthley was in town on
Monday and reports something doing
in the snake line out his way. He
was out up Rood Canyon jost above
his house on Saturday and ran into a
den of rattlesnakes in quantities
aaffient to make his hair stand. A
den was discovered near this spot last
season, but Emerson was not thinking
abont running onto them so soon
Hearing one sing near by he stooped
down to nick np a stone to kill the
reDtilo, when another buzzed behind
him, and then they began to aDpear
on all sides. Emerson does not
attempt to say how many there might
have been in the den. but there were
a lot of them, and he made haste to
set out of their way as rapidly bb
possible. He will proceed to exter
minate the varmints just as soon as
possible, using dynamite to "shoot"
them out. Emerson vouches for the
truthfulness of this snake story, and
as he is a tetotaler it must be straight.
Don't think that piles can't be
cured. Thousands of obstinate cases
have been cured by Doan's Ointment.

port of Grand Jury.
The regular May term of the Cir
cuit court was called on Monday at
Hepnner, Jodge Gilbert W. Phelps,
nf Pendleton, presiding, and all other
Wm. Ayera was appointed general
A crand jury was drawn for the
term and sworn in ; nnon retiring it
was ascertained that there were no
matters to receive their attention at
this time and npon so reporting to the
coort they were dismissed from fur
ther service at this time, sabjcet to
the call of the court.
The docket was very light, and the
Judge finding there would be no cases
for trial calling for the use of the
jury, they were dismissed for the
Ono criminal case only, came on
for hearing, that of Levi Hiatt, for
the larceny of a cow, for whioh crime
he had been previously indicted.
Unon th;s case being oalled, Hiatt
plead guilty, waived time and receiv
ed sentence of from two to ten yeais
in the penitentiary. At this time
Judge PhelpB has under consideration
(he matter of paroling Hiatt. A
large petition praving for a parole
has been lodged with the court but he
has not yet acted npon it. In passing
the sentence opon Hiatt. Judge Phelps
delivered him a scathing rebuke,
strongly calling attention to the ser
iousness of the offense. The petition
for parole Is signed by over 250 of our
citizens, not because of any particu
lar sympathy for Hiatt bnt on acoount
of his wife and little ones who will
be deprived of his support should he
have to serve time at Salem.
The grnd jury for the November
term were in session on last Friday
and Saturday and considered Each
matters as were called to their atten
tion by the District Attorney. Hav
ing finished their labors, they submit
ted the following report:
We, the Grand Jury drawn for the
November trem of the Circuit Court
of the State ,f Oregon for Morrow
Connty having finished our labors res
pectfully report as follows:
That we were regularly convened
on the 12th day of November, 1811,
and were in setting one dey at wli:h
time we adjourntd said sitting and
thereafter on the 10th, day of May,
1012, we again convened in bitting and
have been in session at said adjourned
sitting since said day, having been in
session three days in all since con
vening. That at said first sitting convened
on the 12th day of November, 9l2,
w found that the crand jury which
had just been discharged had disposed
of all accumulated business, that at
this one adjourned sitting we have
found and returned into Court oue
Troe Bill and one not True Bill.
That in addition to the witnesses
examined on the indictmens so found,
we have also considered other matters
which have been presented to us, and
have eo far as we know passed upou
and disposed of all criminal matters
whioh might come before ns and all
matters heretofore presented to the
District Attorney wherein he found
that action was unwarranted and Un
necessary, and we therefore report to
the Court at this time that we believe
that all criminal matters so far as
Morrow county n concerned are dis
We have made a careful examinaion
of the County Hospital, the surround
ings and the management threeof , and
we have found the same to be conduct
ed in a neat and systematic manner.
We have questioned the patients
confined therein and find them appar
ently well satisfied with the treat
ment recieved. We discovered, how
ever, that the Board of Connty Com
missioners at its recent session had
ordered the supply of tobacco t) those
who were habituated to its use, to
baliscontinued, aud that since that
time these two old men who have
used tobacco many years were depriv
ed of what is to them almost a necess
ity and their only approach to a lux
ury, except such as has been provided
thorn through the generosity of Coun
ty Judge C C. Patterson, out of his
own individual funds. We oonsider
this action on the part of the Board
cf County CommuMoners inconsistent
with the chDti allo spirit of the
present age and wduld recommend
that economy be practiced in other
departments to the extent that the
saiall exrenlitnres neoess-ry to fjrj
nihil these old men with liberal
supply of what is to them their only
indulgence may be provided.
We have mads no extensive exam
ination of the books or records of the
county officer i, for the reason that we
have not deemed it necessary to hire
an expert and without an expert we
could not report as to the condition
of the books and records, bnt that
the same appear to be kept in an effi
cient and correct manner. We have
examined the county jail and found
the same unoccupied, and in a clean
and sanitary condition, awaiting the
Having concluded our labors, we
now respeot fully ask to be discharged.
