���Bellinghaui, Dec. 10���Guilty of murder in thu second degree was tbe verdict reached by the twelve men who
heard the case of Harry Watts, accused of the murder of Addie Roper,
on tho night of January 19 last, at
BLaine.
William Allen Dell, who was jointly accused of the crime, ls now serving a life sentence in the penitentiary. Dell and Watts have been convicted of murdering Addie Roper, in
order to conceal their crime, they
burned thu house in which the murder was perpetrated. The g!i" was
struck down  with  a hatchet.
In her mouth was a red baildan i
handkerchief and with this bii of
cloth w.as Watts convicted. It was
maintained by several witnesses that
this handkerchief belonged to Watts.
The defense brought forth many witnesses who refuted this testimony.
hut the character of the witnessi s
was such lhat their testimony carried
little weight with the jury.

The owners of RIVER VIEW PARK, Sapperton, have decided to sell the whole of this
beautiful park in block, at fully 50 per cent, under the present market value and to give
those of limited means, the same chance as the millionaire, we will divide the block into
parcels of say 4, 8, or 16 lots, at the same reduction. The only apology we have to make,
for selling at such tremendous reductions is the fact that we need money. This property
has oiily to be seen to be appreciated. The outlook is superb. There is not a nicer residential property in the Royal City���No���Not One. Some of the lots are beautifully treed, with
a young growth of golden spruce. The balance of the park is cleared and much of it stumped,
and all of the property slopes gently towards the grand old Fraser Rivei* and is only a block
from the Columbia Street car line. 'To the north, east, and south, the Atlas, the Cascades,
and the mighty Olympic mountains, tower in all their rugged grandeur. Sapperton is the
manufacturing centre of Westminster and real estate is more active there than in any
other part of the city. Although only here a few clays, many lots have already sold.
For full particulars, as to price and terms, apply to one of the owners, J. W. NEY, or to any
Real Estate office in this city.

AN   OLD  STAGE   LINE.
It  Ran   From   Kansas   to   Cai,forma   In
Thirty-five  D;>3.
"Atchison to California in tbirty-3ve
days; fare, only $200 In gol I."
This was the beading of an old handbill, yellow with use, wbicb a traveler
laid upon the counter in a railway ticket office the "ther day. It was an advertisement of a line of stagecoaches
that ran from Atchison. Kan., to San
Francisco during the gold excitement
of .wars ago.
"People seldom stop to thiuk what
their poor ancestors had to put up with
in the old days," the man .said. He
was comparing the old time table with
a modern railway time table, which
���^d of the luxuries one could have by
tiV4'i?^-K on jhaj| road, no .lust, no jar-
ring nfld all other disagreeable fea '
turos eliminated,
The   old   time   table   was  a  double ,
sheet of paper, torn and yellow with
age.   it was Issued  by  the Atchison
aud California stagecoach line In 18".
1T|p Inducements l( held for^h were In,
i��nrangc   contrast   witli   those   of   tbe
modern   railroad   advertisement.    The
stagecoach line advertised that It had
receutly .refurnished the entire "road"
with absolutely new wagonettes, and ;
h told what kind of coaches they were.
how the  springs were  made and of i
what strength tbey were.   It even said
that the coaches weru painted lu the j
"beet  manner  possible."   The  horses
that drew the conches were described,
too, as the best.
An inducement that was held out on
the time table to prospective passer- j
gers wns a stop over privilege.
"Passengers who had paid their entire fare from Atchison or other points
to their destination," the paper said,
"may register with our agents, A stop
over privilege Is then given for any
place on the road."
The time of the stop over was un
limited. The time table provided thai
n passenger might resume the Journey
whenever there wns an empty seat In
the stagecoach,
"We make quicker time to Ca tor-
nla ihan any other stagecoach line r.'id
nt a cheaper rate," the pamphlet t>L_.
���ml it wenl "ii to say that tor J200 a
person could ride all the way from
Atchlsqn, Kan., to the gold fields of
California.

THE   GILA   MONSTER.
Ste-arir;    Ways    of   This    Dresded    and
Hard  Citing   Reptile.
Ol some of the strange ways of the
gila monster, tbat llfile known crea
ture of the southwestern deserts, a cor
resj lenl writes: "1 have bad some
experiences with Gila monsters and
thnt ii" matter what scle i
ti-:.- i. ... ��� laim, tin- Gila monster i.s a
good thing to shun. Indians and Mexicans bave a borror of it and fear
|( more than a rattlesnake. I be
lieve that the Lite of the Gila monster
Is dangerous heonuse of the creature's
habit of eating lizards, bngs and rodents and then lying on seiu.i so hot
that it blisters the bands and feet ci
i en. i lee jjeat causes the food to pn-
trefy In the stomach, evidenced by the
facl that the teeth are often covered
with a fermented, putrefied froth from
the food. A bite has tbe same effect us
the cut of a dissecting knife used on a
cadai er lu other words, the inoculation of a deadly poison.
"Winn frightened or angry be can
move inilte rapidly. That short, thick,
stubby tail is used in jumping, Juki as
;. kangaroo uses bis tall. The Gila mon
ster liitc-s like a bulldog and has the
t. ..a-iiy nf a snapping turtle. I once
saw some rneu teasing a Gila monster
brought to Tucson. A string was tie.I
around his neck. The Gila monster was
crawling around on the ground, trying
to ^et away, but was palled back by
the String. This was carried on till the
creature became furious. The crowd
around the Gils monster knew nothing
of his [..wer to Bpring. Suddenly be
s] rung up and bit a man among the
'!���'"���.! on the hand, leaping fully_':v. .
feel from the ground.
"Aie.ther instance, this of a man
whose chief object seems t'i hav.. been
: ��� Ibardy dis;.lay of fearlessness. 11.���
.���������..- holding one of tbe monsters in his
hand by the hack of Its neck, so 11
��� oul i i. t bite bim, He dropped bis
hand ' ��� the side of liis leg. The Gila
monster shut his teeth down on his
heavy duck overalls, taking a double
. ' ul   where the cloth  folded as
qui k'y a- a pair of scissors could have
cut  tbe  fabric and as cleanly."���Chl-

fri uds' and relatives to c ime,  all of
a  are  furious  thai  1 ne  of  their
bas left them. When all the gu ssts
. arri ed the wife of the deceased
,i and   addresses   what   was
once ber husband in a way well calcu-

"There now, listen:   You'd leave me,

Haven't I always been a good wife to !

'Then  the blows begin  to  rjjin dOWJI
upon the 1 r defenseless figure.  Pres

Origin of Cork Legs.
"A cork Icr'.'" sahl the dealer.   "Wh;
man, a cork leg would crumble umler I
you   like  a   leg  of  bread.     You  don't !
want n cork leg, but un elm or willow ;
one.    A   leg  was never  made  of cork
since the world's beginning.   Hut many
people  think  as you do,  and   I'll  tell
you how the fallacy originated.   Thc
Inventor of the modern artificial lectin, leg instead of the sllel;    was .lohn
Cork.   Cork's lees, or cork legs, were
famous around  1810.    And whenever n

PHOTOGRAPHING   STARS.
When Done With Ordinary Camera
They Show as Lines.  Not Specks.
It ta an easy matter there); to pho
tograpb stars. The trouble is t<> plo-
tnre them ns points and not as streaks,
for as th.. earth rotates it carries the
photographic apparatus with it. and
the light from the star makes a line,
while the astronomer wants a point
He must therefore devise a machine
that will counteract the movement of
the earth anel so keep the light steadily
in tli" same place on the plate Elaborate clockwork musl turn the lens
backward to keep it on the sta* and at
the   same   rate   as   that   at   u hieii   the
earth moves forward.
An astronomer at the ferkes observatory at Williams Hay, Wis.. is quoted
In st, Nicholas as saying that "many
ol" the most important results of astronomy have heen derived from the
use of an ordinary camera. On a clear
Ei/.'tit point one of these toward tin-
north pole, and it will be found after
an exposure of oue or two hours that
the stars which lie near the pole have
drawn arcs of circles upon ihe plate.
This is due to the fact that the earth
16 rotating upon its axis at such a rate
ag to cause every star in the sky to
appear to travel through n complete
cir.le once in twenty-four hours.
The mere act of photographing is not
much more difficult than a short exposure out of the window ot a moving
car.   Any' one can try it.
Let tin- exposure he for at least five
minutes if (lie camera is pointed over-1
Lead and for at least one hour If ill- j
rected toward the pole star. The camera may he left out ail night if .pointed
ct the pole, hut must he taken In just
before daylight. The longer the exposure the longer the star "scratches."
Develop the plate as long as possible.

DRIVING   THE   LOGS.
Skill and Activity of the  Expert River-
man   In   Action.
First and Foremost your true river-
man can ride a lop. This does not mean
merely lhat he is able to stand upright
or to jvpiP .from ons '" aqfifher with-
...ii spiustunp in. iiie'i,-.! even mat is
no meau feat, as a trial will convince
you. That is tlie kindergarten of it.
The saw log in tin- water is not only
bis ohjeet of labor, hut Ins menus of
transportation. Vour true rlverman on
drive seldom steps on land except to
eat and sleep.
A journey down stream is to hint an
affair of greal simplicity. He pushes
Into the current a stick of timber,
Jumps lightly atop it, leans against Uls
peavy and floats away ns graceful and
motionless as a Grecian statue. When
his unstable craft overtakes other logs
he deserts It, runs forward as far as be
can. the lops bobbing and awash be
hind his Bprlng, and so continues on
another timber. Jack Boyd once for a
bet rode for twelve miles down Grand
river on a log he could carry to the
stream's bank across hi.s shoulders
Fully half the time bis feet were sub-
merged to the ankles.
Nor does quick water always cause i
your  expert   rlverman   t>.   disembark.
Using his peavy as a  balancing pole
and treading with squirrel-like quickness as  his footing rolls,  lie  will  run
i aphis  of considerable  force  and   volume.   When the tail of a drive passes
through the chute of a dam there are
always half a dozen or so of the rear :
men who out of sheer bravado will run |
through  standing  upright  like  .-ircus j
riders and yelling like fiends.   Stewart
Edward White in Outing Magazine.

The story  is told of  a   well   known
Chicago criminal lawyer whose valna
ble   services   were   retained   by   the
wealthy relatives of a man accused of
murder In a southwestern state
The case was a bad one. for the evi
deuce was overwhelmingly against the
accused. Despite this facl the lawyer
contrived by tbe skillful exercise of
every trick and maneuver known to
the profession to secure the disagree
ment of juries, delays, appeals, etc..
till at last the case wns broughl before
the supreme court of the United States.
One day In an Interview between the
prisoner aud his counsel the former
asked, "Iu case the supreme court
should decide against me, what wlll
be my next move?"
"To heaven, I hope," was the candid
response of the lawyer. St. I/onis R��

Tie., custom started ages ago when It
was the usual thins for "holy mon" or
priests to travel through Swedish villages, stopping t.) leave their blessing
on the houeseholda of the ui Ighberhood,
These visits were look.''! fonv inl to
with eagerness by the pi.nis Swedes,
nml it wns considered an a.'t oif gross
est discourtesy t.�� bar the door, fcr
whatever reason, againsi a holy man.
Consequently If a family left home the
key v, as always pul out againsi the ar- \
rival of the priest, Meal nnd drink
were left, nnd Bhould the holy man
atop nt a vacant house h e itered, re-
freslied himself, left his blessing hi the
form .if a run.lie or n b ittle of holy

have been common,
Here's ..ue, however, that comes
from the days of the old Guttenberg

from the grand I the |udj es
I  to 1(    ve  the stand  and go out  on
Uie track to tell which horse had won.
As Penny was mounting his horse In
the p dd ick he was greatly excited.
"How much have you bet?" he ask
ed the owner.
"Nol a I'.'nt. son," was the reply. "1
haven't g it a cent to bet with, and, besl,les. the old horsp can't win."
"Yes. be can," said Penny. "He'll
win by a block, Here's a hundred.
Hurry up and get it down."
Tbe hundred was l>et, and the horses
went to the post. In :t few moments
there was a loud blast of a bugle, and
the race was on. It was a half mile
track, you understand, and the start
was about where the mile and a quarter would be on a full mile track.
In    a    few    seconds    tlie    splash    of
horses' feet could be heard from the
grand stand and a few shadowy forms
soon passing along the stretch. Then
everything was silent until again came
the faint patter of horses' feet, These
grew louder and louder until finally
they vere right 1a front of the stand.
Then it was s.en that one horse was

penny dismounted and made his way
bai u to the paddock. Ho did not have
a speck of mud on his clothes.
"The ..id horse was a runner today,
wasn't he, Jock'.'"
"Runner nothing," answered Penny,
"Why. he couldn't run fast enough to
1 eat me."
"How In blazes did he manage t..
beat thai field, then?" was the query.
"He didn't," replied Penny. "1 stood
Still when the flag fell, and when I
heard the field coming after making

Antiquity of Slavery.
Slavery ls pretty nearly ns old as the
race. It began so far back that the
memory of man, assisted by the still
greater memory of history, can recall
no time when it did not exist. It would
be difficult to say who were the first
slaves. In all the ttatious around the
Mediterranean^ where civilization Is
supposed to have started, the institution bofjan early to flourish and held
ou right down through feudalism to
modern times.

BEYOND   THE
GRAVE.
Q_.*5tion '
Victor   Hugo's   Views   on   the
of a  Future Life.
Victor Hugo's opinion on tbe iues
tion of life beyond the grave was a
remarkable one! The trr^it Frenchman was firmly convinced that be
would meet all his friends in a future
world. He was equally sure that be
had always existed from the ante
diluvian times, when the Creator placed him on earth. He believed that be
would exist forever. Inasmuch as be
felt iu his soul thousands of hymns,
dramas and poems that had never
found expres-don.
Wheu the atheists would sny to blm,
"The proof that yon will not exist In
the future is that foil did not e__i9t In
the past," nugo would answer:
"Who told you I did not exist in the
past centuries? You will say thai i-
the legend of the ages. The poet lias
written, 'Life Is a fairy tale twice written.' He might have said a thousand
times written. You do not believe In
the doctrine of surviving personalities
for tho reason that you do not recollect
your anterior existence. But how can
the recollection of vanished ages remain imprinted on your memory when
you do not remember a thousand and
one scenes and events of your present life? Sinee 1802 there have been
len Victor Hugos in me, Do you think
that I can recall all their actions and
all their thoughts? ,'
"The tomb Is dark, and when I sha'l
have passed the tomb te> emerge Into
light once in.ire all these Victor Hugos
will be almost wholly strangers tu me.
but it will .always be the same soul."

He Could  Walk.
All are nol soldiers who wear a uniform, as General Lew Wallace found
out at Fort Donelson. He saw four
soldiers carrying n fifth, who seemed
to be wounded.
"Can't that man walk without assist

"i)h. un.'" said the men. "He is
dying."
Just then a shell exploded near by,
and the four men dropped their burden
and tied. The man who was supposed
to be wounded leaped to his foot and
ran ever} faster than the. others.

Coffee, the southerners' daily beverage, was manufactured from parched

MAKING   A   BALLOON.
Gat
Precautions   Taken   to   Keep   the
Bag   From   Destruction,
it   may   interest   the   lea.lei-   to   hear
something about the construction "!' a
big modern balloon and its equlpin 'nts,
It is made of whal is known as bal-
loon cloth, which sometimes Is of silk
and is sewed in small sections of ab 'tit
a yard s juare, so that if one of the sec
tions should burst the whole balloon
would nol c illapse and destroy the
aeronaut.
At the top of the bau Is the vah e t i
let the gas out when one wishes to de
scend.  A rot e f >r opening it runs front

As I said, a fine netting covers the
balloon proper both to strengthen It
and to carry the tvelghl of the basket
and Ks contents. All the strands of
th" netting ��� e , e together in the "con
centrating ring," just above the basket,
in which the aeronaut stands, The anchor and guide ropes as well as the
basket nre fastened to this concentrating ring.
All modern balloons, besides the
valve, have a rip curd fastened to a
long patch sewed In the envelope, by
means of which the balloon can be cut
in two and brought tei earth instantly.
This is never used except in case of extreme emergency and where the basket
Is within ten or fifteen feet of the
ground.���Dr. J, P. Tin.mas in Apple-
ton's.
Marriage   Expense*.
Careful observation, extending ores a
period of forty-two years and supplemented by thousands of interviews
with storekeepers, hairdressers, modistes, milliners, collectors and others.
leads tis to believe that the average
cost of a bride's trousseau lu this country��� tukitit' the rich  with tb* noo>-��� is
the sum of 500.38. jsquanj carers s��
servation convinces us that the average cost of a bridegroom's sartorial
OUtflt is slightly less than one-third
that amount, or. to be exact. $'2'2M1
Thus we have $88.30 as the cost of the
garments worn by bride and bride
groom at tbe average wedding and In
the course of the average honeymoon

tin    London   lunatic  asylum.    It  was
originally founded In 1..17 js u priory, !
but is spoken of as a hospital for lu- |
natJcs in I4"i;, and wheu the church
was despoiled it was granted to the j
city of Londpu as such an asylum,  At i
one time the wretched Inmates were
exhibited to the public like so many i
wild beasts, as Pepys notes In his din- I
ry ami Hogarth shows In one of his
sketches.  Patients that were hartnldss
or half cured were given badges nnd
released  to beg in the streets.   Kdtrar
In  "King I.ear" Impersonates one of
these wnudeprlnc Torn-o'-Bedlatns.
