One Fuller, Chief Cook at This Office
Gets Hij Wheels to Working Prop
erly and Draws Down Colombia
Trust Company's Money.
That it pays to read advertise
ments is the conviction of Hon.
Franklin Rathskeller Fuller, fore
man and all 'round manager of
the Gazette-Times' typographical
department. The little incident
that removes all doubt from Mr.
Fuller's mind was the receipt of
a $25 check this morning from
the Columbia Trust Company of
The check comes as a result of
Mr. Fuller having read the Trust
company's advertisement in the
Ore'gonian some time ago. That
ad. offered a $500 lot at Columbia
beach, $50 cash, and four $25
;ash prizes for correct answers
to a rebus contained in the ad.
Fuller oiled up the wheels in -his
think-box, got busy one night,
puzzled for three minutes over a
series of pictures and concluded
that "A horse, a horse, my king
dom for a horse V was the correct
answer. He was so convinced
that he was right that he sent
.his answer to the Columbia Trust
Co., forgot all about it, and was
surprised beyond measure at re
ceiving the $25 check this morn
ing. He has been so "swelled
up" since nine o'clock that he
can hardly work. He really
thinks he can guess the answer
to this Peary-Cook controversy.
Of course the ad. alone did not
bring Fuller his good luck, but if
he had not read the ad. he couldj
never have met up with that $25.
The ads. in this paper should be
read. They may not give $25 for
the solution of a rebus, but if the
readers will act on the sugges
tions therein they will probably
SAVE $25 EVERY MONTH.
"Uncle Josh Perkins" the great com
etty success, is down for an engagement
of one night at opera house on Thurs
day, Sept 23. The play is built on
original lines and is said to be presented
itoy a brilliant company, who make the
most possible out of every type of
character enacted. While built largely
for laughing purposes, there is enough
pathos, human interest and thrilling
situations unfolded to suit all classes
-of men, women and children too. The
forthcoming engaghment of this com
pany will doubtless , attract unusual
attention from the playgoers . of Cor--vallis.
