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)

Needs the Journal-World

Friend Boggs: Will you please send me the back numbers of the Journal-World from say October 25 down to date. If I decide to locate in the east permanently I will let you know my address as I cannot keep house without the J-W., but I expect to return to South Dakota soon.

My health is good; has, I think, improved some in the last two weeks. I am taking treatment from Dr. Chas. Mayo, of Rochester, but he did not think it necessary to operate on me.

Order of Home Guardians Pays Another Claim.

J.C. Milne, Supreme Field Marshal for the Order of Home Guardians, went down to Cavour on Saturday to play the claim of John Gallup of that place against this Order for total disability.  John was offered two options according to his policy.  He could accept half the value of his certificate now and continue his insurance in force at the rate of assessment on the original certificate or he could cancel his policy receiving the same amount.  He wisely chose the former and will continue to carry his insurance with the Order. As usual the Home Guardians were the first to pay the claim, living up to their reputation of first in prosperity, first in trouble and first to pay.
