Some merchants declare the late
Christmas trade to have been the best
in years, and othars complain ot a
falling off. It is probable that the av
erage Is something above the usual.
It ought to have been, considering
general conditions. ;
Bev. Father Jurek, who is to go t;
a mission in Washington, Is to 'leave
about the middle of the coming month.
The mission embraces several coun

He has been nine years In the Corvai

with his congregation and others who
regret his depai ture.

Mrs. F. P. Sheaegreen has been
financier for the Corvailis Degree ot
Honor during the past six years, and
she has qualified to serve during the
ensuing year. - As a mark of their ap
preciation of Mrs. Sheaegreen's serv
ices, members of the organization, at
their regular meeting Tuesday even
ing, presented her with a handsome
chatelaine purse. The presentation
was made by Mrs. Sarah Moore in a
few appropriate words, which was re
sponded to by Mrs. Sbeasgreen in her
usual happy manner. ;
At the home of the bride's par
ents, in Job's addition, on December
24th, 0. B. Franklin and Miss Clara
Blakeslee were united in marriage,
Bev. U, O. Deck, of the Evangelical
church, officiating. The bride is the
third daughter ot Mr. and Mrs. C. L.
Blakeslee, and the groom is a member
ot the weli-known. Franklin family of
Corvailis. He is a machinist and e-
leetrical engineer and holds a good
position at Anacortes, for which place
the bridal pair e tarted immediately af
ter the ceremony and which they ex
pect to make their future home.
Complaints have been heard, find
ing fault because the boys who broke
into Dunn s store were , not punished.
Of course it is always the other fel
low's boy that the public wants - the
law. to fall on. That . always makes
fault-finding. As. to enforcing a pen
alty, it is always necessary to have a
prosecuting witness, ana wnen Mr.
Dunn drew out of it, the wheels of joe-
tlce were clogged.- In -the state's at
torney's office, it is understood, that
as the investigation proceeded some
of the boys who squawked, subse
quently went back on their confes
sions. As to those who complain, it
is probable that it they will make
complaint and furnish sufficient evi
dence, conviction can be had. . As to
the boys, the complaint bow made is a
warning for them. ' Feeling has been
aroused, and the next escapade Is sure
to result in an unpleasant ending.
Notice to the Public.

price of blacksmith supplies, we, the
undersigned,- blacksmiths of Corvallisr
