Mr. George Walling, of Clackamas County, has been troubled recently with thieves. The first was a large panther, which visited his farm on Saturday night and began to make sad havoc among a flock of fine sheep. The varmint was soon killed by Mr. W. and by this time we suppose it has a place in Buchtel & Cardwell’s cabinet of curiosities. The next thief was a two-legged one, who entered the house and appropriated several articles of clothing, etc., of not much value, however. Mr. Walling did not succeed in capturing the last-named “varmint.” (Portland Oregonian, April 24, 1912)

A surgical operation was performed upon Master John Wallace, son of Postmaster Chancey Wallace, in Spokane last Saturday for the removal of an adenoid growth which had long affected his hearing. The operation was successful, the obstruction being entirely taken out. The young man stood the process very well until he came from under the effects of the sedative, when he suffered a collapse, from which it required the best efforts of the attending physician, his mother, who accompanied him to the city, and the nurse to revive him. Latest information indicates that he is getting along nicely, however, and will be home in a few days. The many friends of the family sincerely hope that the operation will entirely restore his hearing. (Nezperce Herald, August 29, 1912)
