OUXG GIRL IS BELIEVED TJ BE
TIUTIM OF; FEMALE
Invested Savings in Scheme Two
Weeks Ago and-Now Waits
Developments First Foot
Ball Game Other
A female swindler who makes it
her business to bunco women and
r young girls has attracted much at
tention in Willamette Valley towns
of Tate. She has apparently been in
Corvallis. Miss Ida Van iioosen,
who resides in the same block and
im mediately west of the F. L. Mil
ler residence invested $15 in the
scheme of a strange woman who
called two weeks ago, and up to the
present has received nothing of the
many good things promised in re
turn. The stranger introduced her
ae7F as "Mr?. Yelton. She claimed
to be general manager of a book
concern and said she was out to. ap
point district managers who were
in turn to establish agencies. She
told a Tine story and Miss Van
Hoosen decided. to invest. The
stronger required $15 to be advanc
ed sit u guirantee of good faith, and
Miss Vau Hoosen complied. The
sum was the total of the lat'er's
savings in the hop held. It was
paid out and a contract signed,
j&iss Van Hoosen has tince been
"watching the mails for supplies and
instructions with which to b?gin
work, but friends are now convinc
ed that the things expected will
The same woman endeavored to
pnrsuade Miss Lettie Wicks to in
vest in -the scheme. She called
tbere'and related an elaborate story-
She told the family that she.
was earning $2,500 per year, and
if reports current are true, her
statement is probably correct.
Some women who operated in
the same way was at Brownsville
and other Willamette towns. The
scheme worked is identical with
that reported from other places.
The mystery is that with the news
papers telling of her operations peo
ple continue to become victims. It
is a fact, however, that th re are
those who teach that newspapers
ought not to be read. Monday's Or
goeian tells th9 following etory
tbat is pertineqt to the above facts:
"The police received a circular
yesterday from F.' V. Myers, com
missioner of the state bureau of la-
bor statistics, San Francisco, Cat. ,
.giving a warniog concerning the
probable visit to Oregon of a Mrs.
Nelson, whose business methods in
getting $7.50 from young girls, has
drawn upon her tne criticism of the
Saa Francisco police. . It is stated
that Mrs. Nelson advertises herself
' as the agent of an Eastern publish
ing house, and states that ehe wants
yottng girls-as solicitors to take or
ders for her firm's publications, and
after 30 days' preparatory work to
take positions on the" road as "field
managers." One important part of
the agreement la that the applicant
for the position deposits with Mrs.
Nelson $7.50 as a guarantee of good
faith. Mr. Myers, states that 'ihe
applicant 13 asked to sign a contract
embodying these conditions, and
that there is no'possible chance that
the applicant can ever fulfill the
work called for. Mr. Myers thinks
that the contracts in question are
so ingeniously worded as to avoid
legal entanglement, and he had one
interview with Mrs. Nelson in
which she promised to -refund one
, sum of $7.50 f about which a com
plaint had been filed. About that
time, however, she left San Fracisco
without giving, her future address.
It is thought that she may have j
come to Oregon. .
" Sporting Incidents -
In the. past week a uumber
of sporting incidents out of the ordi
dary have occurred in' this vicinity.
Elsewhere will be noted the ac
count of Charley Belyeu's capture of
a China pheasant on the main street
of Corvallis. Telt Burnett also tells
- about having " slipped up on .and
catching atwo-thirds grown pheas
that imagined itself securely- hid-
'den, but when he und ertook , to
place the bird in bis hunting coat
with the view of . taking it home
alive, it gave a-tremendous flop and
escaped Telt's clutches. The bird
sailed out of range before the hun
ter could bring his gun to bear.
Chief : Alexander has a somewhat
similar story to tell. He states
(and it i verified) that he walked
up to withirt. three feet of a bird
which he saw ir hiding, v '. He was
sure he could pounce v upon it and
secare it alive, but he deemed it a
sportsmanlike act to flush the bird
and shoot. -; Accordingly with his
foot he hustled the pheasant into
' flight. Both barrels of Alexander's
gun were discharged at the rapidly
trying vjmnai dut. it neiu us
withont interrupt on. Of course
the hunter's excuse is that the bird
was in too close range when the
shots were fired.
While T. W. Dilly and Chester
Simmons were. fishiDg on Mary's
river a . few days ago, a China
pheasant flew rapidly . by them.
Chester struck at it with hU fishing
pole and entangled the bird in the
line. Both Dilly and Chester made
a desperate scramble to capture the
bird, but although it seemed to be
crippled, it finally made its escape.
Now comes J. M. Cameron and
son Tommy, wbojdepose and say
that while hshing on Woods Creek
last week they came upon a freshly
wounded deer which had but re
cently sought the stream and' was
in -the throes of death. -
Sunday last while George White-
sides and a companion were hunt
ing pheasants a short distance a-
bove the Corvalli3 Mills dam, they
discovered a deer standing in the
water. It was so near that a charge
of bird shot was sufficient to kill it.
It is supposed that the animal had
been chased by hounds during the
First Football Game .
The first foot ball game of the
season was played at - OAC field
Saturday afternoon. It was be
tween the first and second teams,
and was in the ; presence of 300
The game was called promptly
at the three o'clock. Major Ed
wards acting as referee, and Charles
Small, officiating as umpire. , Amid
a cloud of dust, - the second team
kicked off, and the ball was re
turned for 10 yards.- After gain
ing their distance on severaL con
secutive downs, the first team lost
the ball on a fumble. The second
team carried the ball down the
field for five yards, but failing on
the next three plays lost on dowxis.
Several times the first team men
broke through the line, always to
be brought to the ground by Rine
hart, the " plucky quarter of. the
second team. . " .
The-ball exchanged . hands sev
eral times with but little gains on
either side and was at last-- forced
over by the first team for a touch
down. The work during the rest
of the first half was probably the
best of J the game. The first
team men had become steady, and
had lost the --, . nervousness with
which they began the struggle.
The play of the second team men
was fast and furious, but the
weight of the first team was not to
be overcome by the " swiftness of
their antagonists. - - , .
The first half ended by the ball
being forced across for , the second
touchdown by the first team.
The intermission between halves
was spent by washing mud from
the players' mouths, who had in
haled dust from the field to such an
extent that their palates, if exten
sive enough, would have made ex
cellent summer fallow for a crop of
wheat or vetch . In the second
half the second team kicked off and
after small gains tne ball was sur
rendered to the first team, and from
then on until the end of the game
long end runs and brilliant , line
plunges came-in rapid succession.
The superior weight and endurance
of the first team, men continued to
count." Several substitutes replac
ed men in the second team, but the
scoring could not be denied the
first team. Time and time again
they crossed the goal line for touch
downs until the - gong, closed the
half, and the game. - V
Both teams played good fjall,
but were slow at times, and showed
lack of that precious experience
which can only be gained on the
field with other ' colleges, and
which OAC feels keenly now on
account of inaction on the gridiron
in the past two years.
As to the individual work of the
men it showed conscientious train
ing, a will and determination to do
the best possible under such handi
caps as are present. Men, who
three weeks ago had never touched
a football, could not be expected to
play the game as do experienced
players. If the improvement is as
great for the rest of the seasson as
it has been up to the present OAC
will have a nucleus around which
to build a championship team for
His Birthday ,
On Sunday, October 12th, a
dinner was given at the Henkle
home in honor of their son Arthur's
25th birthday. v. Also :in honor of
E F Snyder's return to . Corvallis.
He came here about ; a year ago.
He accompanied his- - mother to
Iowa last July: Two short months
was sufficient for him. hence 'his
return to Corvallis. Ernest Trindal
from Des Moines, was present. He
is here for an indefinite period. He
may locate. ...
Grant's PaBS, Oct. 11. A snow
white dser, the kind that the fairy
books and old hunters -tell about,
nearly 2, 000,000, -and its' purpose is
was killed in the woods of Cow
Creek Canyon and brought to this
city 3'esterday by G. YW Donnell.
Mr. Donnell killed the deer the ev
ening before while waiting forthe
train at "West Fork. The deer is
like all others. of its kind so far as
its general shape and build is con
cerned, but the remarkable feature
of it is its color. Its hair is a pure
. white and its eyes are pink. The
animal corresponds in thi3 respect
to the Albinos of the African . raoe
of mankind. ' .- '
Many old Southern Oregon hun
ters who saw the carcaes of the
freak deer claim that they have
never seen anything of the kind be
fore in the Southern Mountains;
however, they d clareCtbat" . such
deer have been known at times in
various parte of the country, but
are very scarce : and but seldom
seen. " -. '" , - v
Mr. Donnell says that the freak
was with tfo ; ordinary deer, and
had it not been for this be would
not have shot it, as he would not
have known it to be a deer. It pre
sented a very striking appearance
with its snow-white coat. The car
cass o'f the deer was sent .to Port
land last night to aa expert taxid
ermist for mounting,, ; V
