  • After being speechless for a week, caused by swallowing a safety pin while swimming in the Helman Baths at Ashland, Ruth Emory, age eight years, of that city, can talk as the result of an operation performed at Sacred Heart hospital Sunday afternoon by Dr. J.J. Emmons.
    The safety pin unlocked and with the point upward was lodged in the throat, where it was located by an X-ray. Dr. Emmons placed the little miss under the influence of ether, and with a thin wire fished the safety pin out, bringing relief to the patient.
    The accident occurred when Ruth put the pin in her mouth, and a playful boy splashed water in her face, causing her to gasp and swallow the pin.
    She was discharged from the hospital this morning, and left with her parents for home.

    PENDLETON, Ore., July 6 — With Albert Meadows and Clarence Stoner, the two surviving bandits of the three that held up Oregon-Washington railroad and Navigation train No. 5 last Thursday, in jail here, county officers and railroad detectives today turned their attention to locating the persons who were robbed and to returning their money and jewelry. The two robbers were arrested late Saturday and, after confessing yesterday, took officers to where they had cached their loot.
    The loot consisted of nearly $400 in money, a quantity of rings and watches and some checks and money orders that were taken from the express car safe.
    The wife of the leader of the gang, Charles Manning, who was killed in a gun fight on the train by Deputy Sheriff George McDuffey, was expected to arrive here tomorrow from Cokeville, Wyo., to claim her husband's body. Besides his wife, Manning is survived by four children.
    Stoner and Meadows declared that they had never committed any crime before and had been led into participation in the robbery by Manning. They were arrested about 20 miles from the scene of the hold-up after dodging posses for three days.
