from the Olson Photograph company
to all parts ot tne Lnited Staf-s and
its possessions, as well as Canaoa. and
there is no concern that helps swt-11
the po.-tc-ffice receijts hire more th
tr.is corrnp.'tv. as practically all its
l;iir?s comes through the mails and
it has prown from a small concern io
a mail order house of no mean cl
mcns.ion throughout its hundreds of
thousands of circulars mailed out
fiom here, as well as the larpe amount
of wo; k rectived each day thi cu;

just returned from a two weeks' trip
through the eastern cities where
similar companies are located, hut in
none of these cli.l he find anything1
that cot:! 1 compare to the Oion com
par.y here, either in the output or the
facilities for handlinir the wo;k. This
company .-ta-ted on a very rmall scale
a number of years airo, but is now

satisfactory to the stockholders an
members of the company and a very

ILL LEAiifi SOYS A LESSON,
BUT WHO SELLS THEM BEER?
This afternoon Chief of Police Bar
clay chanced to run onto two your.:?
lads r.re 1 about 15, who were gleefully
quaffing beer fiom a jug in which they
had purchased a quantity of the
liquor, and the chief decided that it
was time to check such operations and
accordingly the boys were taken be
fore Judge M. Archer, Mho, in view of
their age, let them off wich a lecture,
in which he stated that if they came
before him again he would put on a
sentence to the reform school, and
this served to impress the boys some
what, although they are pretty well
hardened, and if they are not careful
wiii probar-Iy be sent np to the re
form school. The selling of liquor to
boys of this age should be checked,
and anyone doing it is always taking
a big ris.k, as in case trouble arises
the person procuring the liquor always
shifts the blame onto the person sell
ing it to him.
He has forty-four head of fine Duroc
Jerseys, vhich includes a number cf
very high-priced stock, and these will
be offered at open sale white the ani
mals can be examined arid bid on.
This sale has attracted a great deal of
attention and Mr. Porter has prepared
a catalogue which will be mailed on

excitement in the vicinity of Washing

he hud been taken with one of his

demonstrations aroused the residents

for the man making the disturbance
but withe ut success and it Mas not
until last night that the man was lo

station and placed in jail for safe
keeping. Fred drifted in Saturday-
afternoon and was apparently about
''all in" physically, as well as mental

shoes were only a sad ruin of their
former glory, while he was desirious
of getting something to eat. It was
thought that he was going out to the
home of some relatives near Murray,
but such does not seem to have been
the case and Fred is happy and con
