Former Corvallisite Short Ten Thous
and and Has Disappeared.
Albert E Lyford, formerly of Cor
vallis, where he was identified with
the Coast Carriage and Wagon
Company, is wante,d for , embezzle
ment. A reward of $500 is offered
for his arrest and conviction. Cor
vallis officers have received requests
from officers- at Rock Island. Il
linois, to be on the lookout, and to
arrest him at first opportunity and
wire. They say that Lyford has
interests in a hard coal mine near
Corvallis, and that it is expecte d
that he will appear in the vicinity
in the course of time. ' They close
with the statement that the missing
man is wanted for the embezzle
ment of about $10,000 of county
funds, and that they have a war
rant for his arrest. The letter en
closes a photograph, which is a veiy.
correct likeness as he appeared,
when he resided in Corvallis a num
ber of years ago. -
Other information on the subject
is contained in an Iowa paper that
has been, received in Corvallis. It
says that Lyford was deputy coun
ty treasurer at Rock Island, . and
that there is a large shortage in his
accounts. Also that he has ab
sconded, and that the officers are
looking for him.
In Corvallis, Lyford was well
known and highly respected. He
had a most interesting family, who
have many friends in this city. All
the latter are moved to deep sytnpa-
tey over tne news. Wnile ne re
sided here, Lyford was secretary
and a stockholder along with his
father-in-law', Colonel Burgh and
others in the carriage company. Af
ter the failure of the enterprise, all
the family returned to Rock Island,
their home before they came to
Also Bread But There was Hunger
and Riot Pap Hall's Late Woes.
A whipped canine is universally
a pathetic picture 01 humility.
That is the way Pap Hall has look
ed for a whole week. All that saved
him .from suicide or the mad house
has been his hopeful nature. The
kicks and cuffs of irritated patrons
nave Deen nis. tie wanted a new
oven for' his bakery and started - to
build it. Workmen failed to ap
pear as agreed, and that made - one
delay.' They wanted material that
wasn't at hand, and that made an
other. By night and otherwise
men were sent after it and failed to
get back on time, and that made
three. From bad to worse and
from worse to an awful mixup,
things went. -
Pap worked hard and lost sleep
oyer the delays, and in the mean
time, people were without bread.
All that Albany Had to spare was
brought up every day, but it wasn't
enough. Pap was threatened,
stormed at and traduced. Hungry
men, or women are neither long
suffering nor rosy tempered, and
the distressed baker constantly
stood face to face with riot and
revolution. Cuss-words fell and
rattled on him like hailstones on a
bass drum. The scenic effects
about the bake shop were all blue
and the odor was sulphur and
Thursday night however, the new
oven was completed, the fires were
lighted, and yesterday there was
bread and serenity at Hall's house.
Twice as Big a Town and Twice as
Many People A Wanderer's
Atter an absence ot 17 years,
Will Emory arrived Thursday for a
two week's visit with Benton coun
ty relatives and friends. He has
been since last spring at Newport,
where he went after being wrecked
on the Northern California Coast,
an account of which appeared some
time ago in the Times'.
On his return to the place where
his boyhood was spent, and where
he was educated, Mr Emory finds
changes far more sweeping than he
expected. Twice as many people
and almost twice its former area,
with a college many times its form
er proportions, is what he finds
Corvallis to be now compar
ed with the place as he knew
it. The faces on the streets,
and in business houses are mostly
new and strange, though here and
there is an old remembered land
mark. . -
Mr Emory is a graduate of the
college, and one of his first visits
that he made after arrival in town,
was to the big institution, so differ
ent now from what it was when he
knew it.

dav. September 26th and 27th. Will

"Shape Retaining Coat" is protected by a winter states pat
ent of recent date, being a means of preventing coats from
losing their shape and sagging or rolling at the lapel, the
primary object of which is to provide a construction where
by the front portion and lapels of a garment of this nature
are caused to keep their position with the use of little or no
padding, rendering the garment light and shapely. The
wear-resisting and shape-retaining qualities are guaranteed.
