lows: Last evening was an eventful
one to a few freshmeD. Some of the
older students, desiring to infuse
Eastern customs into the State Uni

smaller freshmen. Under pretense of
a football rally, theee young colle
glans were invited out to - take the
first step toward a higher education,
Races were engaged In, speeches made
and those refusing to act were Immer
sed in the mill race. The ground is
bare around a few of the trees on the
campus, and here the youngsters were

Still Another Corvaliis Girl Victimized
by Her A Bold Scheme,
r Corvaliis has another - young
woman who was victimized by the
Yelton woman, and in a way sim
ilar to the case of Miss Van Hoosen
whose experience was related - in
Wednesday's Times. The - other
victim is Miss Anna Brune, who re
sides at the iome of Sheriff Bur
nett. . September 29th, " the Yelton
woman persuaded Miss Brune to
become an agent for the sale of
books for the Wabash " Publishing
House,:- of Chicago. JThe - young
woman signed a contract under the
terms of which she was to canvass
for sale of ..books, ;.for which the
publishing house was to pay - her
$1 per day for the first 26 days.
After that she was to receive com"
mission on the books sold. As a
guarantee of good faith, she was to
Pay $5 in advance. ? : The latter
amount was paid the Yelton woman
who thereafter disappeared. . That
was the last seen of the money by,
Miss Brune. v- . '
And there is another chapter - in
the story. ' About a week later,
Miss Brune r received through the
mails, a letter signed by the Wa
bash Publishing Jlouse, . announc
ing that the latter had gone into
bankruptcy; and that it: would be
unable to comply with the contract
entered into with Miss Brune. Two
or three i,days after that, another
letter came to Miss. Brune on the
same subject. It "was signed - by
George Cline, and related that the
Wabash Publishing House was in
financial straits, and could not car
ry out its contract, but that! he had
engaged m : the C business on . the
same plan. He also said in the
letter that he would be glad to em
ploy Miss Brune on the same terms
and enclosed a contract for her to
sign. The contract was identical
with that presented by the - Yelton
woman - As in the former instance
it required $5' to be paid in advance
by Miss Brune. -A peculiar fact in
connection with" the contract ; is,
that as a witness to the signature
appears the name of Mrs Jessie Yel
ton, which was the name given by
the woman who --perpetrated' the
first swindle on Miss Brune.
After her first experience," Miss
Brune did hot fall a victim to the
second snare set for her. She did
not send Cline the $5 required, but
threw the letter aside unanswered,
The whole scheme is a widespread
and elaborate swindling proposi
tion that is finding many a victim
Bloody Water and Unearthly Groans
at Midnight for a New Student.
"For God's sake, doctor, can he
get well?" It was a pallid " face,
that of the inquirer, a face of the
new student from Pumpkin Butte.
The so-called doctor was another
Student, but not a new one, made
for the occasion with , pill bags and
powders. A - so-called wounded
man lay on a bed in the room not
10,000 miles from Cauthorn Hall-
and let., out groans distressing
enough to turn a' slaughter house
white-headed. Ur course, he wasr
another student, and by no means
a new one. - His leg was bound up
in many a bandage and he was re
ported to be badly shot.' Near by
was a wash bowl full of water that
was bloody, but it wasn't. It was
only red ink that gave it a gory

doctor," the Pumpkin Butte man
continued,, as he wrung his hands
and paced the floor. But the "sol
emn man of so-called science shook
his head myteriously as the dying
man on the bed let out another
fearful groan, and the drama went
on. - The anxiety ot the" new man
was heightened by the fact that
he was charged with chief respon
sibility for the terrible condition of
the main guy. now suffering on the
bed.----A grape stealing depredation
had been proposed, but Pumpkin
Butte wouldn't eo. - He offered
however, to head a crowd to pre
vent the stealing, and catch the
culprits, -r His plan was - agreed to
and in due time, as they approach
ed the grape patch, ; somebody be
gan to shoot. At the second shot
the main guy fell. He was carried
home, the bogus doctor called, and
the wound discovered to be hideous.
Then the new man was charged
with being the cause of , the shoot-J
ing because he ' didn't go grape 1
stealing in the first place, andmade
him weary and full of trouble. 7
The play went on ' for - a long
time. ' A closing - scene happened
out in the corn field." Pumpkin
Butte was taken out there to watch
Jfor the man who did the shooting.
For secrecy, he was caused - to lie
down and be -covered up with corn
stalks. - He was told to stay until
the moon went down. He did.
