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.

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 much." , Foi Rent Furnished house, last house on Monroe street, four blocks west of Mechanical building. Inquire of Geo. G. Booco at the house. 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 while here. Matches in the vest pocket and an exceedingly hot Klamath Falls sun did 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.
