PRIOE FIVE GBN-TS  3B3?  mill  8PP0SE CHARGE  OF INSAHITY  Seattle, Sept. 15.���������Yesterday's session .of     the commission named    by  "Judge Fratcr.of-the superior court  to examine into the sanity of Mrs.  Maud Crefeld and Esther Mitchell,  'charged with the murder of George  Mitchell, developed the fact Mint the  work of tlie physicians will still require a number of days more. The  state,' through Prosecuting Attorney  John F. Miller, will make a strong  opposition to the women hieing declared, insane-and will introduce considerable evidence in rebuttal of that  - already taken in support- of the insanity theory. Mr. Miller made this  statement1 to the commission yesterday and' said that when the testimony called in by the commission  had been taken he intended to introduce witnesses for this purpose.  These, he said, ��������� Will include physicians who made examinations of the  , ���������*  women immediately after their arrest following the murder of Mitchell and of- others who have; been in  a position to, see and study the women since their arrest. '  It  was  thought  that  tlie  commission might end  its labors yesterday  but only a short session was    held  and only one witness was exanni-ned  ���������: %.   As showing the quick returns to bo  obtained from advertising, at noon  today we had instructions to insert  a. "Lost" notice, stating that a  gold watch, and chain had been lost.

There have been many stories of  wounded grouse getting safely away  from local hunters since the opening  of the hunting, season, but to-day  comes the firjst story of a dead  duck walking off. This morning Mr.  Williamson cut, or at least thought  he cut, a duck's head oft' with an  axe. Dropping the .bird, Mr. Williamson walked into the front part  of his shop, where he deposited his  books, which he had just, brought  down from the house, and then returned to the duck. All that remained of the latter, however, was  a little blood upon the floor, and a  ''iquack! qruacla!" floating in from the  back yard. Upon investigation it  was found that the bird's bead had  only been partially severed, and another operation   was necessary.  S. L. Jones, of Seattle, and Samuel -������. J/ackson, of Kyi'nsas City,,.!Mis-  souri, in company with Hon., Jesse  A. Frye, of Seattle, have recently  incorporated under Hie Laws of the  State of Washington, tlie Washington Lumber and Tim-bcr Company,  with a capital of $50,000. The purpose of this organization is the  wholesaling of lumber, also to xc.il  in timh-f-r lands and to������en!gH&e in log,!  ging and' manufacturing.  GuMIM  Of VALENCIA WRICK  Noah Day, Sept. 15.���������II.'S. Noicc,  a Georgetown undertaker, and Geo.  Everett, sent out by the Building  Trades union of Seattle, "to bring  the remains of victims of the Valencia wreclc buried on Vancouver Island in temporary graves, arrived  in Neah Ray yesterday with nine bo  dies on the  tug Sea Lion.  Tlie nine caskets ' containing remains and one empty one were placed on the beach at .Neah Ray Indian agency .to he'put onboard the  revenue cutter Graii-t when she. should)  arrive from the scene of the .wreck.  The Grant arrived today, having'on  board one' more of' the remains  .which had to be loft.the day ,before  on account" of high seas.

The bodies that had to  be altjaii'doncd on ��������� -account of the  rough water' will he shipped to Seattle by way of Victoria by steamer.  The surf-' at Ncah Bay was very  high when the 'Grant arrived today  and it-was thought lor a time that  tlie caskets left on the beach by the  sea could not be taken off till to*  morrow. But with the use of a  canoe and two Indians expert with  the paddle the caskets were taken-  one at a time from ihe beach and*  delivered to the cutter's boat beyond the, surf.  This task seemed very hazardous  to anyone hjot a -Neah Indian. Fran*.

DEVOTES  LIFE  TIME  ,     ��������� TO STUDY OF LEPROSY  Washington, D. C, Sept.'" US-After displaying rare heroism by the  devotion of a life time to tke study  E'  ,of leprosy, Eugene II. Plumacher,  American consul at Maracaibo, Ven  ezuela has decided that the dread  malady is not contagious, but is hereditary to a degree not reached in  other diseases.  He has made an exhaustive report to the state departmunL telling  of his personal attendance upon lepers aUlicted in the most revpltiing  form. His report indicates that 'leprosy is curable, but that there is  little-hope in Venezuela or other Lat-  iu, American, leper colonies where nu-  * tritioiis foods and expensive foods  are  rarely provided. __  Dr. l-'lurnachor was appointed to  iMaracaibo in 1S7S, where in jointure with his duties as consul he has  constantly observed leper cases anil  ���������their treatment and where he experimented in no small way. In this.he  has - the benefit of correspondence  with the most advanced scientists fqf  the United States and Europe, and  it was through bis efforts that the  " Tua Tua " plant used in treating  the disease is now planted in alt  countries which have leper stnlioivs.  'At the request, of these scientists the  ���������doctor took a large number of phot o  graphs of lepers, personally removing the bandages of the afilicfed in  order that the results might be obtained. ' Tfc was prophesied then that  he would contract the disease, but  this  did not happen.   o ������������������  Havana, Sept. 14 .-���������Gen.

A Resident of Wetland  Finds Relief in Pe-ru-na,  SUFFERED  YEARS.  Mr. Ozial Rounds, Wolta-nd, Out., a  rotired lumberman and a resident of  Wetland for half a century, writes:  "For fifteen years prior to 1900 I  was a sufferer from hay asthma and  chronic diarrhea. I grew weak and  emaciated and was tortured with insomnia.  "I was treated by eminent physicians  but, if anything, was worse than ever.  In fact, I was in as miserable a condition as a man could be.  ���������'However, J chanced to try Peruna  and noticed an improvement. Thus  encouraged, J continued, and after taking several bottles of your precious  Peruna, I was entirely well and a  wonder to myself and friends.  "If, at my advanced age, S3 years, I  have obtained such good results from  Peruna, after so many years of needless  suffering, there can be no doubt of its  efficacy in the treatment of younger  uersons."  1IFS' DOOb. ,������������������������ ������������������  CSUULSL JULft AJULSO  jMinatd's"  where.
