been to select his stock of holiday
I B. W. Moore, a Linn county farmer,
is missing.,- He started for Portland
by boat on Nov. 21, taking four horses

; This afternoon Rev. Henry A. Ga
briel left for Beaverton intending to
return next Monday morning. Mean
while Rev. Father Dimier will remain
in Corvallis and hold the usual services
: The Cauthorn Hall Club will give
Coach Metzger and the O.A.C.-team a
reception, testimonial, or something of
that sort, next Saturday evening. xThe
Cauthorn Hall bunch never does any
thing by halves, so the affair is cer
tain to be a jolly one. ;
Interest ' in the Jeffries-Johns on
prize fight is more than casual among
some of the lovers of the "manly art
here. The G.-T. has it on reliable
authority that Manager Lowe, of the
Independent Telephone Co., has just
bet Jack Milne five to one that John
son will beat Jeffries before the tenth
round. Mr. Lowe is not exactly, in love
with, the "niggah," but : as an .old
Tennesseean with first-hand knowledge
of the colored man's prowess, he has
confidence that in Johnson . the honor
able Mr. Jeffries will meet his Water
loo, and not his watermelon.
; A stranger said to answer to the
name "Tennessee"" Wyatt will appear
before Judge' Denman tomorrow at 9
o'clock on a charge of carrying con
cealed weapons. The story is that he
has done some tall talking about what
he would do to Chief Wells, and showed
some young fellows an old blunderbuss
with which expected to do his work.
So Wells picked him up.- It is . thought
that this is the fellow who .recently
brought a buggy full of Albany booze
to Corvallis. .
i The' Christian church people, who
. nave made such .- handsome lmprove-
. ments in their property the past year,
are planning to have a gloriously good
t'me at- the church , next Sunday,
They will re-dedicate the church and
' themselves to the Great Cause and will
i have the assistance of: most of the
. ministers at one of the services. The
. Christian church property is now com'
' modious, and attractive in appearance,
a real credit to me city, mi. nuuueu
and his congregation have done a great
and acceptable work.
Wallace, star tackle on the O. A. C
team the past season, has been elected
captain of team for next year. This is
the young man's Senior year at O. A.,
A. but he expects to return next year
for special work, hence acquiesced in
the will of his, team b' mates;. Wallace
has played two years and made an' en
viable record. Last year he played at
guard and was a-, success. At tackle
i this year he loomed up in proper shape
and because of his headiness and the
general favor of his mates he was
g i en the position of honor. Wallace
will make good.. . " . '
The Washington. D. 'C, Times, of
Nov. 20 contains " pleasant mention of
Miss Edna James Sheehy,' who is pleas
antly remembered here as a former
instructor in music at O. A. C. Mies
Sheehy has been selected as soprano
for the Washington Symphony Orches

strated her ability to satisfy her friends
. and critics, her success in; her first

will be here next Sunday to supply the
puplit at the First Congregational

Rev. Mason has Just resigned his pas
torate at Dayton ' and comes to look
over the field and advantages here,
