LINN COUNTY MAN BUYS UP
Pay Sheriff Gellatly $1700 for Tax
Certificates -If Not Redeemed in
Three Years All Property Will Be
long to Mr. Giddings.
. C- M. Giddings,, a Linn county
man, paid Sheriff Gellatly $1760.
55 on Tuesday and was given. 136
delinquent tax certificates. If
the owners of the property on
which said taxes have not been
paid fail to pay up within three
vears from the time the taxes be
came delinquent, Mr. - Giddings
may take the property. In case
three years they will have to pay
Mr. Giddings 15 per cent per
year -.together with the added
penalty: provided by the statutes.
The property that is thus in
the hands of Mr.iGiddings repre
sents a tremendous value. Thous
ands of acres are- involved, and
considerable city property. Many
80 and 100 acre tracts, against
which there stands a delinquency
Tf"ntrmore than $5"anu"""$10Tare
involved.:- Lots valued at $300 to
$1,000 -are in -the 'hands of Mr.
Giddings because of a small de
linquency. By paying the penal
ty plus the 15 per cent interest
. they can tie redeemed.
' The public seems to forget that
taxes are delinquent unless paid
witnm six montns irom April 5.
; If one-half the tax is paid at that
time, the second half is not de
' linquent before six months from
.Oct. 5. '-Many of the accounts
, purchased by Mr. Giddings have
, uccn suiiiuing since ana
1908. N Unless the owners get
busy some of this . property will
finally belong to Mr. Giddings.
Some people are inclined to
think ill of the Sheriff .' for not
notifying them of their delin
quency. This is not his business
: and his time is occupied officially,
However; both he and his deputy
do render a great service in this
respect, but they can not possibly
notify alL .

"In Wyoming," a - graphic
story of the great west, full of
color and action, inspiring in its
theme, thrilling in its situations
and declared to be one of the,
most perfectly constructed plays
on the American stage, will be
the attraction at the opera house
tonight. It is a genuine Ameri
can play, a study of life on the
open range as it ; was twenty
years ago. The : story teems
with the vitality, strength and
tender heart interest , that must
of i necessity characterize any
drama that seeks to convey the
spirit of pioneer days. But this
element has not been allowed to
over-ride the trait of ... fun and
banter which is essential to any
true sketch of American charac
ter, and the sparkle of real Yan
kee wit illumines ' every passage
of the story's , progress. The
play is entirely free from the
usual shooting and blood and
thunder; there j is nothing to
offend the most exacting. .
.' 'In Wyoming" is one of the
best' ' dramatic ' productions to
visit . Corvallis; last season , it
made a decided hit; tonight ' it
will entertain a, much larger
crowd, as the advance sale now

, Owing to failing, health I am
desirous of disposing of , my
business, and any one who may
want to secure a nice little, well
established, good paying grocery
will find this an opportunity that
is not often presented.
I will sell the stock as it stands
together with the lot - and store

and rent the building, which
ever way purchaser may prefer.
The business is a nice- one, is
the only store of its kind in a
well settled part of the city, and
but for my inability to give it
proper attention I would not
think of offering it for sale.
Principals only : will be dealt
with and all particulars required
will be given at personal inter
view. '' R. H. Taylor

The United States government haa
decided, It Is understood, to send tha
cadets of the United States Naval acad

standing is that practically all of tha
cadets, with the exception of the en
tering and the furlough classes, will
make the cruise to European waters.
It Is planned to make this the most in
teresting and instructive cruise ever
taken by the Annapolis cadets. Th
annual cruise in north Atlantic waters
will be abandoned this year if the
transatlantic voyage is approved, as It
is said It has been, by the secretary of
the navy. -
The recommendation that a cruise la
