The new set of moving pictures ex

A burglar broke a pane of glass from
Jesse Moses' store at Tangent- a few
nights ago and entered. Mr. Moses was
sleeping in the store and as the burglar
struck a match he fired. The intruder
ran out the front way and was fired at
twice more. He fell and it is thought,
one bullet took effect, but the burglar
"The Spoilers" pleased a large audi
ence Saturday night. The company is
said to have been well balanced, of
more than average ability and the play
was one of deep interest. There was
an occasional approach to the noisy
melo-drama, but as a whole "The
Spoilers" was good, fully up to the
heralding given it.
" The College Folk Club gave an affair
at Shepard Hall Saturday night at
f tended by members and ladies of the
facutly of O. A. C. The entertainment
; was of the Halloween order bobbing
j for apples, pinning the eye on the
. donkey, "chewing the rag," kissing
jthe blarney stone, fortune telling, etc.,
etc . At just the right time rather
I substantial refreshments were served.
The affair was thoroughly enjoyed.
Chief Wells captured two or. three
quarts of Albany booze last night, but
the man who brought it over for dis
tribution jumped from the buggy and
ran too fast for Wells to get him.
The Chief got onto this bootlegger by
following him over the city as he drove
about in his drunken wanderings and
finally stopped him. At this the fel
low jumped, abandoned his horses and
ran down the middle of the street like
fiends were after him. Wells stayed
with the rig, searched it and found a
couple of quart bottles and a pint, full,
and a couple of pints largely consumed.
He confiscated these and the rig was
delivered to the stable which owns it.

Wm. Burgett is here from the Sol
diers riome at Koseburg to spend a
few days with his daughter, Mrs. John
Chambers. Mr. Burgett went to the
home from Kings Valley about four
months ago. He is badly crippled up
from rheumatisin, but though scarcely
able to bobble around he is full of good
cheer and able to joke. Mr. Burgett
has nothing but kindly words . for the
Soldiers' Home. He says the matron,
Mrs. Ferguson, is an excellent woman
who cares for everthing in the very best
way. The 150 soldiers there are treated
splendidly, being given good beds, clean
bed clothing, first-class meals, and a i
suit of clothes occasionally. As Jtfr.
Burgett puts it "we get all we want
but whiskey and tobacco." According
to him, the Indian .war veterans are
getting but $8 a month, while the
widows of these get $12 a monthin
other words they are worth more dead
than alive. Mr. Burgett expects to
remain until about Nov. 1st, .

from a business trip to Independence.
Born Saturday evening, October 23,
in Portland, to Mrs. John F. Allen, a
son. J. F. went down Saturday , in
time to welcome his new heir.
The Junior-Soph game Saturday
resulted in a scoreless tie. The boys
fought like demons but neither could
do more than secure a goose egg. "' The
tie will be played off at an early date.
Tom Richardson will not be in Cfcn
vallis until Wednesday, and will address
the ladies and gentlemen of, the Com
mercial cluh Wednesday afternoon.
No reason is given for this change
from Tuesday, except that Mr. Rich
ardson could not get here as agreed.
Tom makes as good speech on .., Wed
nesday as he ever ". does on Tuesday, . so
none should fail to be at the club
simply because of this change.
O. A. C. won from the Catholic
Young Men's Club of Portland last Sat
urday 12 to 0. The visitors started out
by ripping O. A. C.'s line to pieces,
but couldn't keep up the work. - Good
luck in getting hold of the ball on fum
bles gave O. A. C. the two touchdowns.
The second touchdown was rather spec
tacular, little Reynolds, the quarter,
making a great run just a few minutes
after being practically knocked out.
He carried the ball within one foot of
the line. 0. A. C. shows better team
work at each appearance and is effec
tive in individual plays, but is poor at
blocking and fumbles too much. '.. The
Catholic Club is a husky, well-balanced
team with a heady quarter.

count also on the big trip and any
one of the candidates can, by de
voting her time to winning the

Welch should insist on the other.
It is said that there is a strong
probability of getting an electric
line direct from Portland and
this makes it unnecessary for
the United to come here from
Albany, but this is only conjec
T Suspect C. & A. '
Some here are inclined to be-
Hieve that . the line Mr. Welch
represents will come to Corvallis,
and they indicate a belief that
the C. & A., Carver's road, is
but a link. No definite reason
for such a conclusion can be
given, except that they can see
no other valid excuse for the
existence of the .C. & A. The
average person can not see that
the C. & A. is now or ever can
be a paying investment, so they
conclude that this road is now,
or is to be, a part of some line

The decision of the judges will
be absolutely impartial. There
are prizes for 80 writers and the
chances for winning are so many
that entries in the contest should
be large. That the publicity re
sulting from the prize offer will
be wide and that much good will
be realized for the whole Pacific
Northwest is assured.
That the Czar of Russia will
have a royal orchard in Southern
Oregon is the information given
out by two nobles of his court,
Anton Petroskovich and Peter
Peterhof, who have just com
pleted an inspection of the Pa
cific Northwest to locate such an
orchard. They decided to re
commend the Rogue river valley
and are expected to close nego
tiations just made for a tract
near Medford." '
