TWO LOCAL POETS
And Their Poetry If They Would Only
Write of Love, Ugh ! f
When W A Wells came down
town yesterday morning he found
a crowd around his bulletin board.
jvir wens is a wiaeawate real es
tate man.'and the crowd apparently
reading 01 the bargains he had to
offer made him see things. Vision
of . half a. dozen big-deals at' "once
flashed upon him, and he quickened
his pace. ' Once-there ' Mr Wells
found that the bystanders - were not
bargain hunters. - They were pract
ical jokers, and this is what they
bad on the real estate dealer:
The day before he had adorned
his bulletin board with a rhyme
that ran - -' . ' :.-
If you want ,0 sell or buy, "-C-.
- See Wells who will try' - -To
put you on a string
That will dandy money bring
. And make you happy as a king.
"' Underneath this, Mr Wells- found
the. following poem: . . . - '
, If you would investment seek
; This man Wells is awful sleek
He'll make you think a house
and lot . " , .
. . Can, for a song be bought
But after buying you will find
The whole song is only wind
And after parting with your wad
You'll feel like killing Wells, be
- gad. .
Mr Wells is himself a -practical
joker, and ne took nis medicine in
this instance, like a thoroughbred
The ability to do one thing "and do it
well is more to be commended and is of
far more benefit to humanity than to do
many things and . none of them
equal to the best. Dr"Love limits his
practice' on the eye fitting glasses and
puta the cream of sixteen yearsexperien
ce into them, . . .
Back again at the same old business,
you will find me ready to tack on half
soles and patch your shoes with the best
materials at reasonable prices. Give . me
a call two doors north of Farmer's Hotel
Main ere el. - - --...-M Gleason.-. ?

SUING HIS SURETIES
Hove to Collect Executors Debt to
son Estates From Bondsmen.
Two Benton county men stand
face to face with the prospect of
having to pay a surefy debt. They
are J W Ingle of Corvallis and J J
Rodgers of Kings Valley, and . the
amount, about $1,400. Lawsuits
were brought into the circuitt court
Thursday, to enforce collection of
the amount, and both men have
been served with the leeal racers
Named with themTas a defendant
in the case is J L Akin, executor
of the Peter W and Hannah B Ma
son estates. , '. .
The cases are the L outgrowth of
the late decision of the supreme
court, mention of which was made
in the Times. . T L Akin several
years ago became executor of the
Mason estates. At the time of
his appointment, Akin was indebt
ed to Peter Mason ; on account of
a promissory note delivered to the
latter during the . latter's : lifetime,
Akin was then insolvent,- and ac
cording to various court affirma
tions, has since remained . so. . In
his final account, Akin .did , not
charge himself with the amount of
note 'and" certain creditors of the
estate asked that the amount of
the note be charged against him
as though it were so much money.
In the county court the creditors
were overruled, . but they . , carried
their contention . lo the . circuit
court and there met with , a favor
able decision. , " Akin carried ' the
matter to the supreme court, and
thelatter like the circuit court held
i"" 1- -ii- uwh whwu iuu . iait
should be charged against him, as
executor, just as though it . were
so much money in his hands, The
creditors referred to were" Margery
B Davisson and. The - Church of
the United Brethren of Eugene,
When Akin was appointed ex.
ecutor of the Peter W and Hannah
B Mason estates, J W Ingle,, then
of Philomath " but now of Corvallis
and TJ Rodgers of Kings Valley,
became sureties for Jrim. , The de-.
cision of the supreme " court, hold
ing that the Akin debt to the es
tate is in effect so much . money in
Akin's hands as executor, seems to
open the way for holding Akin's
sureties liable for the. amount.
This at least, is the . purpose of the
suits brought Thursday, in which
Ingle and Rodgers are named as co
defendants, with Akin.
One of the suits is .brought by
the United Brethren church of Eu
gene, Its complaint re ites that
the courts, circuit and supreme
have held that Akin has in "his
hands over and above his commis:
sions and expenses of administra
tion, and available for distribution,
the sum of $1,399.07. and the coun
ty court of J3enton county, in ac
cordance, with decree . of ..'the ; cir-
cuit court ordered that the amount
should be distributed "among cred-;
itors, and the plaintiff "should 2 re
ceive $617.20- The - plaintiff the
complaint continues, " demanded
payment, and the defendant. Akin
refused, failed and neglected to pay
the amount, - save $192.04, and
there : is .stilt . due 'a . balance of
$492.26 . - with ' interest for which
judgment is asked, : together withJ
costs of the action. In the body
of the complaint appears the surety
oaths of Ingleand . Rodgers, when
they became bondsmen for Akin.
The other case is . identical with
that of the United. Brethren church
and Margery B Davisson. is ; plainr
tiff. The cases will be watched
with interest, not only by lawyers,
but by laymen. ' K R Bryson is
attorney for plaintiff in both cases.
