Mrs. Nellie Singer, of Clearfield,
Iowa, has been visiting F. L. Miller
since Sunday, and will leave this even
ing on her trip through California and
Texas, en route home. Clearfield,
Iowa, is the town Mr. Miller made
famous, or notorious, in his youth by
his feats as a ball player, and in those
days Mrs. Singer, as a maiden, was
mascot of the Clearfield team. She
came to the Seattle fair several days
ago, stopping at Denver en route, and
has decided to locate there.
Mesdames Chas. Colbert and Am
brose Lewis entertained a large com
pany of Iowa ladies at the home of the
latter on 3rd street Tuesday from 2 un
til 5 p. m. The house was tastily dec
orated with sweet peas and LaFrance
roses. A very elaborate luncheon was
served during the afternoon, the guests
pronouncing the entertainment ideal;
and all agreed they preferred Oregon
climate just now to old Iowa with its
thermometers registering 107 degrees
in the shade.

Of the coming of President Taf t, the
Albany Democrat says:: "As the
President is scheduled to leave Portland
about 6 o'clock on Sunday evening,
Oct. 2, passing Albany about 9 o'clock,
it is quite probable that the people of
this city will not even see the distin
guished chief executive, weight 310
pounds, but we can sit on the pros
pective seats at the depot and see the
train stop to register, for it has to do
that, and perhaps get a drink of water
at this dry town. Even Jonathan
Bourne can't keep this honor from us.
Perhaps some one will be" permitted
also to yell: "Hello, Bill," and perhaps
Bill will come out on the rear platform
and show himself. Roosevelt did that

W. W. Chapman, for more than a
year a bookkeeper in the Benton
County National Bank, will leave next
Sunday for Ouray, Colorado, to accept
his old position with the Miners & Mer
chants bank. Ouray is one of the five
or six "loveliest" spots on earth, but
Chapman had to leave two years ago
on account of the health of his wife.
That difficulty is now straightened out
and as the old boy has not yet been
weaned from his love for the mountain
town made famous by its tremen
dous output of gold and silver, a tele
gram from his former employers was
sufficient to induce him to leave Cor
vallis and the Willamette. While
Chapman would never take a beauty
prize nor startle the world with the
noise he is making, he is a pleasant
gentleman, (white), and while here
managed to keep out of jail. That's
something, for all bookkeepers and
cashiers are not so careful. He will
go back to Ouray with the hearty best
wishes of the circle in which he moved
Matches in the vest pocket and an

E. T. Burger, son of R. E. Bureer of
this city, a very bad turn several days
ago. Mr. Burger is a surveyor and
with another is working in the Klamath
Falls county. He is one of those re
ferred to in the following clipping from
a southern Oregon paper, which says:
Last Friday while the surveyors were
at work in Langell valley they met
with an accident which is unaccounted
for but the loss is there iust the same.
They had a team and spring wagon
hired of John Shook and that morning
drove to where their-work commenced
and tying the team unto a tree, took
their instruments and started out. On
their return after stopping work they
discovered that their waaron had hnrnpd
up and also the hair of the horses tails.
lhey had left their coats in the wagon
along with a lot of crade stakes and
the supposition is that there were
matches m the coats and being in the
hot sun had ignited. The fire comple
tely destroyed the wagon and burniner
the tongue off let the horses get fur
ther away from the fire, thereby saving
the ruination of a couple of good horses.
