Miss Pauline Kline7" entertained the
nameless 500 Club Saturday evening
and was successful in - keeping the
guests so late that most of them failed
to get to church the following morning
all of which was very bad, of course.
But the guests had such a jolly good
time,' 'and such generous "helping of
good things to eatnat they could not
readily leave these bodily thrills for
soul thrills on the morrow. At-500,
three tied for first place Mrs. McAlex
arider, Mrs. W. F. Gaskins and C. V.
Johnson, the former being successful
in a draw. Stephen A. Carver had
such bad partners that he got only as
far as the first rung of the ladder and
was awarded the eonsalation offering.
Before the fun ended, one of the Gas
kins was elected president and the club
was given the name "Igo Ugo Club."
This stands good until the next meet
ings at the Gaskins home New Year's
eve. Miss Kline is elaborate and gen
erous in her hospitality and there are
few who find objection to this. Sat
urday evening she was ably assisted in
serving by Miss Bessie Thorpe.
McKenzie's Fun Makers opened their
engagement last night at the Palace
theatre to a packed house. The four
act drama, "The Senator's Daughter,"
was presented, in which all the charact
ers were well sustained and, consider
ing the size of the stage, was- as well
puton and gave as much satisfaction
as many a play that has appeared at
the opera house. Robert McKenzie, as
the insipid Lord Harry Bresford, had
the make-up and English drawl neces
sary to make a success of the part.
Miss Eva Hazlett, "as June, "strictly
up-to-date," made, a hit. Miss Gwynne
Sterling as Leucia, the Senator's daugh
ter, had the heavy, female role, and
while weak in some parts, as a whole
gave a good interpretation of the per
secuted woman. . The female comedy
part, Amelia Higgins,-was taken by
Miss Irene Palmer, who captured her
audience at the start with make-up- and
funnv lines. The work of Richard
Lonsdale, as Senator Clay from -Ken
tucky,, and Frank Howe, as Colonel
Stetson, was good, and Chas. Dale, as
the Marquise de la Rochette, was ex
ceptionally good. The company will
repeat this play tonight, and tomorrow
night will present "The . Man From
Mexico." ; If the company continues
to give the class of plays it opened
with last night, , the success of the en
gagement is assured. Four first-class
moving pictures were shown, the best
of which was "The Best Man Wins."
This is the story of a race for a bride
by a bunch of cowboys and . is exciting
from start to finish. "Lines of White
on a Sullen Sea'.' jjs a pathetic film and
seemed to suit the female portion of the
I audience. The other two films are clear

The G.-T. promised a legal opinion
on the advantage and disadvantage to
the city of Corvallis in annexing O. A.
C. grounds. That opinion is at hand
but of such length that it is impossible
to present it in this issue. It will fur
nish interesting reading tomorrow, and
will be particularly interesting because
it is conclusive and incontrovertible.
The steamer Pomona, when at a
point near Independence Monday morn
ing, blew out two cylinder heads and
cracked her shaft. This put her out of
commission. The Oregona stuck a
snag at Coffey chute the Wednesday
before and was disabled. The steamer
Mascot will now ply between Corvallis
and Portland until one of the disabled
boats is repaired. .
Tony Hanson, the Monroe man re
ported lost about flood time, is at San
Diego, Calif. Mrs. Hanson received a
card from him last week that was writ
ten about the time of his departure from
Corvallis, but in some way it had not been
delivered to her." Mrs. Hanson is now
preparing to go to her husband, whom
she says did not leave because of. debt.
It appears that he had long desired to
move to southern California but could
not gain Mrs. Hanson's consent be
cause all her people are near Monroe.
The husband decided to go and from
there try to induce his wife to follow
him.- The plan has worked, for Mrs.
Hanson will go. Had his card not been
delayed somewhere, Mrs. Hanson
would have known with two or three
days where her liege lord had gone.
