The fake telegram about Caleb Davis
Jr. winning third in the big land draw
ing was fixed up for Jack Dawson's
benefit in particular, and ' despite the
chicken man's denial, he swallowed the
bait, say those who were in the game.
Ever since Jack went north and regis
tered for land he has been telling the
boys what he proposed to do with his
winning. - He 'expected to draw down
the capital prize and had planned to do
some wondrous things. Jack is a
pretty good jollier and he had ' lots of
fun crowing over the other fellows and -that
was his undoing. Davis induced
Ernest Miller to rig up a telegram an
nouncing his success, and , then the
news was carried to Dawson. . That
personage is said to have turned green
two or three times before he could
begin to feel good over the other man's
good fortune, and some of the crowd
tried to 'Tub it in" on him by "referr
ing to his tall talk during the past few
weeks , After the fake was exposed
Jack tried to let on that he was onto
the game all the time, but the boys had
their fun at his expense. just the same.
THE ESCAPE FROM
Theater Presents Film
Thrills All Beholders.
The moving picture program
advertised by the Palace theater
for last night and tonight is one
of the strongest bills put on by
the management in a long time.
The film, "The Escape From
Anderson ville," is very realistic,
showing Union prisoners in the
famous old prison pen and some
of the indignities to which thev
were subjected. The tunnel has
been dug and watching a favor
able moment the little band of
dare-devils overcome the sentry
who is patroling their beat, and
taking him with them into the
tunnel, they make their getaway.
How they captured a locomotive
and are pursued by another en
gine manned by Confederates is
a mater of history, and this part
of the film is as true to life as
actor folks can make it on the
stage. The pursuing engine
finally breaks down an d . then
word is wired ahead for work
men -to blow up a long trestle,
and just after the engine bear
ing the escaping Union soldiers
crosses the trestle, the explosion
takes place, however, without in
juring any of the men. The
last picture shows the return of
the men to their homes and the
wild enthusiasm with which they
are received. - The whole picture
is good and is "way above the
average for clearness.
"A Priest of the Wilderness,"
a story of a priest among the
Iroquois Indians in the Sixteenth
century, is another good film,
full of action and very clear and
with excellent stage setting.
"Madri Gras in Havana," is a
picture of the street parade of
this celebrated pageant during
the last celebration in the capi
tal of Cuba, showing the differ
ent floats and " the . . immense
crowds on the streets watching
the spectacle. .

were well received by the large
crowd which attended last night.

trap character of the top of the
building, to blame for the big
gest part of the loss, as when
the fire once got in the garret it
was beyond control. Another
thing that displeases them is the
horrible condition of the ally
back of this block, making : fire
fighting a difficult thing.
But, altogether the insurance
companies have" no complaint
coming. They have taken out
many times as much money, "as
they have paid back, and there
is a big balance in Albany's
favor yet. : :

Commenting editorially upon
.the Tuesday Afternoon Club pic
nic on the C. & A. Railway re
cently, the Sunday Journal said:
ulubs 01 the state will be anx
ious to learn the result of Mrs.
Selling's talk on state federation,
for a club saturated with the
club spirit must desire greater
opportunity and the state f edera
tion, stands sadly in need of just
such 1 progressive clubs." This
calls to mind that the state
federation constantly: supplies
worthy young women in need,
with funds to maintain them in
college; yet Corvallis is probably
the only city in Oregon thai; is
not represented in the state fed
eration. With so many first-
class clubs Corvallis might give
the state federation some consid
eration at the beginning of next
year's work. If -the federation
were open to men's clubs, Cor
vallis would be represented in the
state body. This is ominous, for
all know the ladies are more pro
gressive socially than the weaker
