WHERE IS HE?
Mysterious Disappearance of Benton
County Farmer Search Unsuccess- '
George Armstrong, who has re
sided two miles east of Wells , for
the past dozen year?, is missing,;
A faithful search has ' been - made
from last Monday tip to Thursday
evening without discovery either of
the missing man or - any trace " of
him. Thursday the number of
searchers was 30, and after traverf
sing every possible spot where
there was a hope of finding; either
the man or. his body, the search
was abandoned. .'..;; . ' V
Armstrong' disappeared Monday.
He attended a meeting at the school
house three-quarters of a mile sooth
east of his -place. He had ' been, ail ¬
ing for three months, but on this
particular moraine, he was better
than usual. He made a speech dur
ingthe proceedings! and when the
meeting closed, returned home atf
companied by a neighbor. - There
he changed clothes, and went alone
a quarter of a mile east of the house
towhere Guy Price, the. hired man)
was making: rails. After a lew
minutes conversation with Price,
Armstrong started back to the
house. He complained of feeling
tired, and expressed a doubt as to
whether or not he would- be able
to reach home. Price watched ' htm
until he had proceeded about 150
yards, where the old man passed
into the brush along the way and
disappeared. This was the last
seen of him. ' His - footprints
short distance further along the
way have been traced by the search
ing party. At a certain point how
ever, these footprints suddenly dis
appear, and no further trace can be
found. In the language of one who
followed the trail, the old man,
when he reached the point named,

Corvallis and Suver Telephone Line to
? he Built at Once. ;
.Provision is about completed for
the construction of a telephone line
from Corvallis via the Monmouth
wagon road to Wells, thence cros
sing'to the Independence wagon
road, and connecting at Suver with a
similar system already built run
ning through Airlie, Falls City , and
.Louisville to Monmouth. A branch
of the Corvallis-Suver line will
run from Wells up Soap Creek to
Baker's farm. The " Organization
for this enterprise is styled "The
Farmers Telephone Co." One share
each ,of the stock is taken by the
farmers on the line at $20. The
Bell Telephone Co. charges each
share-holder 50 cents per month for
use of instrument, and these outlays
entitle stock holders to free connec
tion with all parts of lines already
constructed or which may hereafter
be built. The first meeting looking
to the organization of this company
was held at Wells two weeks ago
by the farmers interested. ' There
are now more than 60 share-holders
in the companv. A meeting is to
be held at Wells to-day to take final

people were called to Oregon City
either as principals or witnesses in
contest cases recently to have been
heard at the land office. George W.
Bigham contested the claim ot George
W, Jackson to 160 acres In township
10, but the latter did not appear at the
appointed time before the- officials to
sustain his claims, aod Mr, Blgham's
claim will therefore be regarded as un
disputed. W. H. Franklin and H.
Wood offered testimony before the
Oregon City land . : office- officials
touching their respective, claims to
another 160 acres In township 10, but
as it will be necessary for the register
and receiver to go over the papers
and evidence submitted, a decision
may not be given out for some weeks

A Hundred and Seven are Candidates
For Places on Track Team.
A hundred and seven men, with
others yet to report, are candidates
for places on the QAC track team
The number is two or three times
as large as ever before, and is prob
ably three or four times as , great
as at any other institution in Ore
gon. : It indicates that enthusiasm
with reference to - track athletics
is - greater than it ever was before,
two or three times over,and is nn
questionably occasioned by the con
fidence of the men in Director
Trine, who is to have charge of the
training.. r If,., under the circuni
stances, tne men aon t do winning
work in the coming games' it . will
be more than curious. . :
. - Director Trine met his men for
the rst time Thursday afternoon,
A hundred and seven of them ready
and eager for the fray, were seated
and waiting for him in one of the
rooms at the college when he en
tered. A demonstration that al
most knocked the well known
trainer off his feet, followed. The
flattering.character of the reception
was enough to bring smiles' to the
face of any recipient, and was not
lost on Mr Trine. ' When it was
concluded, the new director deliv
ered a short lecture on the general
care of the body, , how to begin
training, what bad habits to for
swear, ana otner , preliminary in
structions', t Then followed a reg
istration 01 men tor ; tne various
events, with the following results
100 yard dash, 22 men;. 220 dash,
I3J 44. 15; half mile run, 33; mile
run 33; 120 hurdle, five; 220 hurdle
five; hugh jump seven; pole vault,
12; hammer, five: discus, eight,
shotput, eight. ' - - '' v
The muster roll includes, nearly
all of the place-takers in last year's
team, and a very large number of
new men, " Inexperience of the
new material is a drawback, but in
the hands of so competent a trainer,
this is more than atoned for, by the
quality and amount. Director Trine
is delighted with the situation, and
hopes for successful results. '
