In the cast of "The Time, The Place
And The Girl" there is a little girl who
tips the scales at 100 pounds. - She is
Jessie . Houston, and she has a most
important part. She was ambitious
and a hard" worker; she watched every
line and every move: she received
good notices from the critics, she
wanted to be a star. That was the
height of her ambitions, i Every one
said she was full of talent. "One night
one of the principals fell and sprained
her ankle. "Now is my chance, " said
Miss Huston, and running, up to the
stage manager said, "I'll play the
part," and without a moment's hesita
tion she jumped in and made good,
got the best notices in the show and
today she plays the "Girl." . "All I
can say," said Miss Houston, "is it's
fate. I wanted to be great, and this
is my beginning." ' .

Uncle Joe Yates, while enroute to
Albany yesterday, saw two sights that
impressed him differently. One was that
of boys driving goats hitched to wagons.
The youngsters were having a great
time and were bowling along with the
speed of an auto a slow one. The
other was that of three suspicious look
ing characters, one of whom proposed
to stop him for a chat or something
else. Uncle Joe told the fellow he did
not have tim to parley with him and
nrove on. From the appearance of the
men, he is inclined to think Corvallis
people had better watch their chicken
coops for a few nights. y

The draymen and S. P. officials set
tled a difference today, one of the
higher-ups coming down and straight
ening out the difficulty, which arose
over the disposition of the draymen to
discontinue their habit of helping to un
load freight from the cars. The dray
men figured out that they were doing
work not reasonably required of them,
so the draymen refused to pay for
freight until it was unloaded. -The
freight office figured that it could not
unload freight not paid for so for a
time the business men did not get
freight. The big official settled the
difficulty by agreeing to put on an ex- .
tra freight rustler, or two, thus letting
the draymen out of their former work.

man could be, and he promises to make
his place noted for its cleanliness and
the quality of his offerings. He is
buying his oysters direct from the
