FUNERAL WITH MILITARY HON
ORS AT CAUTHORN HALL
OF EARL BA.WSON. '
A Vast Assemblage Paid Tribute
to the Dead Boy Delegation
Accompanied the Remains
Home Other Lo
Stturday at Corvallis, was a ty
. pical day in May, The sun-hiae
and the breeze, the bird song and
the opening leaves, the blossom
ing meadow carpet and the rotund
of hills fading away like a pageau-
, try m the sky, made the morning
truly ideal. But the OAC flag was
at half mast, for Cadet Earl Raw
. eon was dead, and sorrowing citi
zens and colif gian? gtzed through
crepe and mourning at the sur
rounding display of God's miracul
ous dispensation of beauty.
It was the second time wishin a
. month the battalion m-rcht-dto
the funeral notes of theoadet bind.
There is something so sweetly
tol'mn in out-door music when
the springtime flowers are yielding
their beauty aud fragrance. H
seems that the musie, ' the colors
and the perfumes ascend togethei
in a commingling of praise. Hard
ly had the Ides . of April passed
when a member of the sophomore
class answered the final summons,
and now with the calend3 of May
another front the same class to ik
. hU iot,g departure. It was indeen
a day long to be remembered in
S ilomn in all his glory was not
arrayed like a lilly; yet thousand of
Oregon flowers, more beautiful if
possible than the lilies woven iuto
crosses, wreathes, anchors, and
festoons by fellow students to adoru
the casket containing the remains
of Earl Raweon. So cloee are tin
attachments formed in college and
so intense the college spirit that it
is said that every cadet, who could
come, was in ranks on the plazi
of Cauthorn Hall.
' -Jfhe services were opened with
the hymn. "Lead Thou me on,"
eung by Mrs. Edith Pfrnor, .Mi-s
Ellen Chambsrlin, O. F, L. Herse
and D. W. Pritchard. Rev, Hum
bert, in a twenty minute addres,
empnasizea ine importance o"
Christian integrity in college traia-
'" ro- - ... .
A(taT the remains were reviewed,
the sad 'march was taken , along
College avenue and then direct t)
the railroad station. Pallbearers,
selected from the student body,
were sent at : the expense of the
Y. M. C. A the athletic associa
tion and the Phfladelphian literary
society, ot which associations he
was an active member. They ac
companied the remains to Orch
ards, near Vancouver, Washington,
where the burial took place Sun
day. They were, Frank Galloway,
J. S, Tannok, Miles Belden, Mark
McCallister, John McCormack
and Clifford Gardner. ;
Briefly told, thus ends the last
saa rites paid a worthy young man
who came . as a stranger t j our
college nearly two years ago, was
successful in all his - undertakings
and who made every acquaintance
v his friend. : ?
The military aspect of thcitwo
college funerals receniy held in
Corvallis brings into greater prom
ince the character of the typical
modern soldier of America, He is
an educated man, trained in - the
public schools, farms and shops of
his home, and then schooled in
science and drilled in - military
tactics! for four years amidst all the
allurements and prestige that the
highest culture in college can give,
The greatest admiral of the age.
with Salust said that brains rather
than guns win the world's greatest
battles. Herein comes the demand
for American soldiery an intelli
gent college bred soldiery, a sol
diery of which every man has the
requisite character, training and
ability to make him an enviable
leader in military and civil af
fairs. : Of such a soldiery Earl
Rawson will long be remembered
in Oregon Agricultural College
circles as having been a promising
representative- J I . " " .

pl'ce and date or the contest.- v. The
matter of arranging details proved
more difficult than was at first
thought probable. .
ScLcMon of material was not
easy. Much good talent objected
to being lined up in a public con
test when it came down to real
business. Another d'fficultv v was
that both caDtains claimed severaf
of the same men. Some fellows,
for in-tance, said thf y - would act
with Spencer's team and then lied
out of it;, others . would swear al
legiance to D'lly and then go bick
on him. The situation rendered
uncertain the position of sjoie of
the most gifted liars in the city.
and neither of the leaders could
tell just where he was at, as respects
his t-iam. Both captains were more
or If S3 diecouraged, but. Dilly de
cided on a grand coup. -
His plan was to go over t) Tam
many cingie-banded after th
fah"oa of the hsao bibwaymin,
surprise the gang and broadside the
enemy with a rrgnlar old snilly
gos er of a ; yarn. He thonght
Spencer might weaken and sur
render the championship uncon
ditionally. Accordingly, one day
last week, the Fixer rushed over j
to Tammany and ; found the boss j
telling some remarkable incidents
of the old stage days.
"Here," said Dilly, . '-thesa fel
lows are tired of your yarns. By
grab, you ain't much of a liar any
way. I'll tell you something that's
a fact, and you can get an idea
of what I might do if I was a mind
to lie. . ' :; . ""
"I just got a letter froja my
cousin and it made me - think ; of
an aecident that befell him when
he was just about grown. It hap
pened io Eastern Oregon. He was
trying to r de a wild broncho . and
was thrown into an old . pile of
rails.. A sharp stake ran: into one
ear and came out at the other."
D lly paused only for a moment
to allow the fellows to imbibe a
full measure of the horror.
''But if you got a letter from
him he must be alive," ventured
one nf the listeners.
"Why, yes, he's alive, of course,"
said the Fixer. "If . it had killed
him there wouldn't have been any
thing strange about it."
"But we thought it had surely
killed him until we went up to
him, We found him still breath
ing. Some of the boys said, 'Let's
pull the rail out but I said, 'No
by grab, that won't do, he'll bleed
to death.' After a good deal of
talk, we decided to saw the rail off
close to either side of his head."
'He must be deaf as a . post,---said
a sachem in an undertone. '
"No, sir, he ain't deaf," continued
the Fixer. We thought for awhile
that he would be something of a
blockhead, but he ain't, and after
we bored a hole in either end of
the chunk he could hear as well as
any of ue.
"He's coming down here on a
visit this summer and you can see
: As soon as he had . finished : his
narration, Dilly slid through the
door and beat a -precipitate retreat
across the street. - The havoc . his
words had wrought on the sachems
is indescribable.: The great sachem
lay across his tonsorial - chair in a
dead swoon J Henderson's head
dropped forward on his breast and
his tongue hung put as . his breath
came in quick gasps Another
chief, with his elbows on his knees
droppad his face inio his hands aBd
buret into sobs and tears. A doctor
who might have happened in would
have diagnosed the case of each as
straight epileptic fits; Sachem
Davis, who was least affected, was
first to recover. When Dilly was
half way acrois the street, he shout
ed after him in a feeble voice and
sort of a grave yard sigh, ''Come
again, Dilly." . ' ; ; ; ' '
When ftmjmm had iieorcwad
partially from the effects of DiUv's
flank movement, Spencer tried to
nerve Moore, his . first lieutenant,
np to the point of making a counter
stroke, but the man from Illinois
bad taken chills in his feet, and no
amount of persuasion could induce
him to tackle Dilly, the latter 's own
Spencer was ou the . point of
giving up the championship when
an unforseeu event transpired
which will permit himto retain the
bt-1', for a time at least.
On the 28th day of April a gen -
tletnan arrived in town and called
on the barbers in particular. He
introduced himself as the walking
delegate of the Pristine Order of
Prevaricators. He had noticed by
the Times that there was about to
be a public contest between two
teams of liars; that public contests
oi tnis nature was a ngnt reservea
to the members of the order; that
any infringement would be fol
lowed by a boycott, and that all the
power of the prevaricators' union
would be brought to bear upon the
person or persons who disregarded
the organization's mandate; that it
was the wish of the state board of
barber examiners that t all full
fledged barbers become members
of the order; that probably - next
year this requirement would be in
corporated in the conditions neces
sary to secure a barber s license.
. The walking delegate seemed to
mean business, and while his ad
monitions had more or less effect
on all who expected to take part
in the contest, they settled the mat
ter so far as the barbers were con
cerned, and with them out, the con
test would be too tame for any
thing. - So the great event has been
declared off for the present. .
While in Corvallis the walking
delegate put forth much , effort to
secure recruits to his organization.
but Our gifted liars, as stated pre
viously, are offish when they come
to be lined up and counted. Mr.
Brunk of the Occidental hotel is
the only member he secured. - We
give here a partial copy of the cer
tificate of membership:
To our most honored Brothers
throughout the World and in the
Islands of the Sea, Greeting:
"Now know ye. That we,
the Great Copt, and the Seven
Master Liars of the Pristine Order
of Prevaricators by virtue of the
great power vested in us by the
First Great Copt in the Fourth
Dynasty of the Reign of the Pha
raohs, in the Tomb beneath the
Pyramid of Cheops, the Greatest
of the Pyramids of Ghizeh, before
the Twelve Gods of Egypt, do," by
this mystic power certify that H.
M Brunk, has been admitted into
the Deep Mysteries of our order
''We therefore, proclaim him to
be a Graceful, Talented and Gifted
Liar of the 33rd Degree, and we
command our brothers throughout
the world to recognize and honor
him as such, for be it known that
he is, by this noble order, Licensed
and Privileged to lie for the rest of
his natural lifetime, and to lie For
ever Thereafter in the grave, pro
viding he keeps in good standing
by yearly contributing fity cents to
The Lyre, the official organ of the
order, thereby aiding in the sub-H
lime work of reviving the lost but
noble art of lying.
The document is duly
and has the "sacred seal"
There is more or less
tion as to Brunk's object
lying himself with this organiza
tion. Almost all the drummers be
long, and some think Brunk joined
to assist in retaining his popularity
with that ; class. Others believe
that Brunk has an interest in Jim
Lewis' real estate business located
in the " hotel, and -on account of
Jim's modesty, Brunk is ; compelled
to do the lying for the firm ;,and
wants to do it according to regu
lations. : . " ; '
