Rev. Geo. E. McDonald arrived in
Corvallis this morning and will visit
relatives and friends in this city until
tomorrow. Mr. McDonald is on his
way to Portland, where he will fill the
pulpit of the First United Brethren
church next Sunday morning and eve
ning, he having been appointed pastor
of that church at the conference held
in Philomath last week. He will not
take-up the regular work, however, un
til his graduation from the U. B. semi
nary at Dayton, Ohio, -next May. .
The city was without water last night
and in case a fire had broken out the
town would have been absolutely with
out protection. Repairs . were being
made at the intake jn the mountain and
he water shut off and when the engine
was fired up at the river it was discov
ered that the main was broken thus the
connection was shut off at both ends of
-the line. Perhaps a little censure mav
' be due to some one having the matter
' in charge for not seeing to the river
connection before shutting off the main
but having passed the critical period
jet all rejoice that we escaped the dan
ger and remember that the water plant
has ever been conducted on business
principles, The people spend too much
time finding fault with 'their neighbors
instead of emulating their noble deeds
thus making the world purer and better.

A Thrilling Rescue.
How BertR. Lean, of Cheney, Wash. ,
was saved from a frightful death is a
story to thrill the world. "A bad cold,"
he writes, "brought on a desperate lung
trouble that baffled an expert doctor
here. Then I paid $10 to $15 a visit to
a lung specialist in Spokane, who did
not help me. Then I went to California
but without benefit. At last I used Dr.
King's New Discovery, which complete
ly cured me and now I am as well as
ever." For Lung Trouble, Bronchitis,
Coughs and Colds, Asthma, Croup and
Whooping Cough it's supreme. 50c and

Competition between Western rail
roads for , the bulk of travel to the
Seattle Exposition has reached another
stage iu the official announcement of
one that all its limited trains will be
supplied with "phonographs for the
entertainment of passengers. Daily
programmes of grand opera, selections
and popular music are announced. On
the dozen now trains put on recently
by the railroads, other unique bids- for
patronage have been.made.
: One began to make a bid for the busi
ness by furnishing a table d'hote meal
for $1 beginning with a ; cocktail and
ending with a perfecto cigar which
cost nearly twice that amount.
Other roads followed suit and a sec
ond road announced that it had bought
chicken farms potato farms and - cows
that give milk of the kind" that makes
cream, and the company also ' provides
eggs stamped with the date of their
"birth." A third announced the
provision of women stenographers and
a clothes-pressing attachment free of
charge, and now the acme has been
reached by adding the musical pro
grammes. . ...
A. C. Tunnison Is
A. C. Tunnison, met with a - severe
accident on his farm south of the city
this morning by being thrown in front
of the sickle bar of a mowing machine.
'. He had just hitched up a span of
colts to the mower, 1 preparatory to
going out, but before' he could gather
up the reins the horses started to run,
throwing him over the sickle bar,
which badly lacerated his leg and arm,
Dr. Cathey, who was called, having to
take ten stitches to close the wound in
the leg, the flesh being torn- from the
bone, while it took five stitches to re
pair the injuries on the back of his
hand. j-... - " . '
The team fortunately ran into a tree
just after starting or the results might
have been much more serious; "as it was
the harness was broken but the 'horses
were not hurt, - and -it is thought no
permanent in jury" will follow the pain
ful wounds received by Mr. :Tunnisoh.
He had just returned yesterday,f rom
a four weeks visit to Eastern Oregon,
his mother having died while he "was
there. ' . , -:
