Gorvallis Times. Official Paper of Benton County. OBVAIX1S, OREGON, AUG. 13, 1903. IN AN ICS PACK. In morn-qniver the Frozen Arctic Corvallisil i ir There and Writes About it. Mrs. Jeffreys, formerly of Cor vallis recently joined ier husband, 'Thomas Jeffreys, at Cape Nome, arriving there the 15th of June last. She sailed on the steamer. Senator from Seattle, and enroute, the ship With 560 souls on board was for some time in the perilous embrace of an Arctic ice pack. In a letter to Corvallis friends, Mrs. Jeffreys tells the story of the ship's exper ience, in part, as follows: 'We heard 'the cry that the dreaded ice pack was ahead, and sure enouerh within a few minutes the good ship was up against it Oantain Patterson climbed to the "crow's nest" and took a long look over the great ice sea, and signalled -to the men below to so ahead. We made fairly good progress that af ternoon so every one was . encour aged. We were confident that's Jew more hours would take us out ino theopen sea: How little "do vte knnw what really is ahead of us in this life. So it was in this case; for on . Thursday in the great ship began to and rattle. Her great iron heart commenced to throb and pulsate like that of a strong man on the "brink of danger. The bells rang onttoslow down, and we were &st in the great sea of ice, with a dreadful uncertainty; of what the consequence might be. ' Many a xood ship in similar circumstances lias been crushed as an egg shell, and her precious cargo dropped into the bosom of the ity deep. "Again and again the great steel vessel backed off and rushed at full speed against the icy barrier, sometimes gaining a short distance, sometimes apparently making no headway whatever. ' " Friday the old ship made by inch and foot its way through the great ice cake, but so slow was her progress that from four o'clock in the morning to four in the afternoon, we made but ; four miles. ' " : : .'" . "At last, apparently five miles ahead, was the open sea, and its immunity from the deadly perils that constantly hovered about us. But the ice seemed tp be thicken ing, and the battle the gallant vessel was fighting got more intense. Still we were gaining . headway slowly. Off ahead of us the ice seemed to be more craggy and rougher. Was this the shore ice, was the question. If so, our situation would be worse still. - When we reached a point about half a mile from the open sea, another quiver of the great hull told that once more we were locked! m ine grasp 01 tne icy monster. This time, we seemed to be doomed to wait until kind Providence should by His wind and.sun, sepa rate and melt-the ice, and give us a way to the open sea; for all the force the vessel had could not move .the monster ice cakes in front of us. Here we lay helpless, moving by the ocean current at the rate of 2 miles an hour toward the Arctic. At this juncture a Scotch sailor pas senger said that if he were given the coil of the big rope and the steam machine on board the ship, lie would clear the way. His ex periment was a success, and in less than thirty minutes . the- huge ice berg was moving away from the front of the vessel, giving her a chance to move ahead. Five hun dred and sixty throats were scream ing. The "Consciousness of impen ding danger was lifted, for within forty minutes the scream of the ship's whistle . announced that we were once more in the open sea. - "We landed at Nome, Thursday June 15th." ; . - THE BIGGEST YET. Not Over Wise. There is an old allegorical picture of a girl sacred as' a grasshopper, but ia the act of heedlessly treading on a snake This is paralleled by the man who spends a large sum of money building a cyclone cellar, but neglects to provide his family with a bottle of Chamberlain's Col ic and Diarrhoea Remedy as a safe guard against bowel complaints, whose victims outnumber those of -the cyclone a hundred to one.. This remedy is recognized as the most prompt and reliable medicine in use for these diseases. For sale by Al len & Woodward. - ' For Sale.

E, church South. Mrs. E. L' Fitch. Crowd at Newport-Tilt Between Banker and Ex-Governor A Fight " What Wild Waves Say. More people are assembled now at the "Newport beach than were ever there , before. . The hotel men say so, . old residenters say so, the railroad people say so, and the crowd .that nightly gathers to . see the boat arrive speaks eloquently to that effect. During the latter cerefflenjf : pfOgress through the main street of the l'ttle seaside town is well nigh . impossible. The "Gangway" bawled out by burley hotel flunkies and baggagemen in order to secure leeway for the pro gress of the newly arrived and pale faced tender feet barely serve to op en the ranks of the oa-lookers suf ficient to' admit of tree passage to the various hosteijfes and elsewhere. All over the w&Ati back into the street, on the Sidewalk and hotel verandas, ail for a distance of a full block, th "people stand, almost as closely packed together as sardines in a box. The stirring notes of a brass band in "The Good Old Sum mer Time" and kindred selections, the mingling of the music with the chery greetings and laughter of the waiting multitude for the newly arrived, the bustle that the hotel at taches get on for the removal of baggage,, the crowd, the conversa tion and buzz, create a scene alto gether enlivening, and at once im press the newcomer that the pros pect isfull of promise for a good time. .. . PEOPLF FROM EVERYWHERE. As to the crowd, the resources of the railroad people are sorely taxed ; to accommodate the traffic. No such an offering of summer business was expected, and preparation for it was not complete. No less than four crews of trainmen are kept in constant service on the western end of the line. The train that goes to the Bay Saturday afternoon, leaves at once for Albany to accommodate the Sunday ; excursion business. The same coaches return to the' Bay on Sunday forenoon, make the trip back to Albany in the evening, and ordinarilly pas9back to Yaquina during the night to be in readiness, for the crowd that always comes out during the outing season on Mon day morning. Thus, pushed al most to the wall in the efforts to meet the requirements of the. "busi ness, the railroad is m the midst of an activity that it has nev er' known before. More coaches and more locomotives must be. provided if the Newport beach is to continue to grow in popularity. " ' . . The result of this ebb and flow of people beachward, is seen after the traveler has made the rounds of the beaches. Every room in every hotel ' has an occupant, In the hallway, there are cots for the ill starred seasider who arrives late and without the precaution of hav ing engaged a room beforehand. Every house in the town is inhab ited. Back on the hills there are white tents enough to suggest that an army of many regiments is quar tered there. All the old cottages are full, and many new ones have been built. There are people from Baker City, from Ashland, and evr en from far off Idaho and Montana. The families of Eastern Oregonians are there by the score, waiting for the return of cooler breezes and cooler nights before they leave for their homes in the arid Inland Em pire. . ; '.. BANKER AND EX-GOVERNOR. ; Every seasider that has been at the beach for a week has a complex ion that is neither a delusion, nor a snare. - It stamps almost to within a few hours the length of time that has been put in at the beach. If the hose1 is approximately a meer schaum brown and the cheeks a slightly , paler hue, the stay among the Pacific winds, and sun has been perhaps three weeks If the cloth ing is that of a seasider but the skin more nearly that of a Siletz brave or bravessi the stay is not far from two weeks. The winds and sun shine over there are merciless in their operations, and none escape. The maiden fair on whose cheek roses and peach blush play has not been long among them.- She is a tenderfoot, and must sail lor the valley or take the consequences. They tell a story over there of Banker Bush and the late'ex-Gov ernor Pennbyer. Both have long been famed for witty sayings. "How is it that you and Pennoyer don't get along better," said a mu tual friend to Banker Bush, one day. The banker, sage cleared his throat and the reply was, "The trouble with Pennoyer is that he runs his saw mill too little and his mouth too much." Lajer the friend related the inci dent to Pennoyer, and his rejoinder was: "Yes, Bush sits there in his bank, piling up gold and hoarding it, year in and year out. He keeps piling it up dollar on dollar; but what good will it do him. He can't take it with him when he dies, be cause if he does, it will melt." When the ex-governor s witticism was brought by the same haud to the banker this was his grim reply: "Yes, I'll take it with me, and Pen noyer will be there when it melts, dipping it up with a ladle. PELRL COOPER PERFORMED. . The departure of the latest Sun day excursion " from , the Newport wharf Sunday night was character ized by a diversion. It was a small riot iri which Pearl Cooper of Inde pendence, was , a star performer. There was an awful crowd, almost all the boat and the accompanying barge conld accommodated Every body wanted to be " first on board, ana as is usual at suca times men and hoodlums unencumbered with baggage or women tried to climb on the boat from several points along the wharfs The boats crew, among whom were Harry and Bush Davis, held such performers back and en deavored to have them board the boat by the gang plank, far the safer and better way, and one to which the boat company requires observance both for the safety of the public and the protection of itself. In the rush, one man tried to oc cupy a lorbidden place. ' lie was told to move back, but he resisted, The boatmen laidTiold to put him off, and he showed fight. On the wharf above was Pearl Cooper, and with the ruffian purpose that ' is his wont, he rushed down the gangway, climbed aboard and engaged in the mixup, one by the way, in - which he had neither interest nor concern. His hand ' was raised, of course, against the boat's crew, and little Bush Davis, only a boy was the main object of his attack. Cooper weighs over 200 pounds, but the little boatman showed fight and protected himsel ffrom injury as best he could until the arrival of his brother Harry and others when Cooper was unceremoniously eject ed from the boat. Cooper is the person who shot one of the Post boys in the arm at a dance at Sum mit, and was subsequently tried for the offense in the Benton county circuit court. During the melee on the boat, which lasted for two or three minutes and wis sharp while it lasted, there was intense excite ment on boat and wharf. The excursion of last Sunday was 'one of the heaviest of the season. In all about 500 people went over, of whom 96 took the train at Cor vallis. They went in 1 r coaches. and on the bay-bound trip there were ample ' accommodations. On the returning trip in the evening there was a far larger number, occa sioned by the return of many who had gone over on Saturday and other previous days. The train on the out-bound trip consisted of nine coaches. " The immense traffic between Ya quina and Newport, is handled by the boat company with dispatch and promptness. M. M. Davis is Cap tain of the boat, and Captain Ben- sail, the veteran pilot is at the wheel. The steamer Richardson and a huge barge carry all the passengers and baggage in a single trip, delivering the traveler at Newport in ample time for supper, which the salt wa ter ride prepares him to enjoy.

Patterson, who resigned his position as instructor in physical culture atOAC last. January, and went to Wilkesbarre Pennsylvania to take a similar position, is to enter the Washington Medical college at St Louis for a course in medicine within a few weeks. In the latter as professor of physiology is Sidney P,. Budgett, one time well known in Corvallis. when he was owner of the stock farm now owned by P. A. Kline.

Rural Free Delivery Routes number two and three, out of Cor vallis, are to go into operation on the 15th of September. : The news reached Postmaster Johnpon by leU ter yesterday . Carriers are to leave the poatoffice on each route at 12:30, and are to make the round by six o'clock in the evening. The names of the carriers have not yet been given out. .Complete instruc tions with reference to the estab lish x en t of the routes are contained in the letter of notification. The people interested are largely indeb ted to Postmaster Johnson for the sudden turn in affairs. His vigor ous measures alone, secured a re versal of the department's late pro posal to abandon the routee. , . Last Sunday Wm. Hartley and a friend strolled out on Mary's river fiat and the former approached a pony which was staked there. Mr. Hartley liked the looks of the ani mal and began caressing him. "I like the looks of this little fellow very much," said Mr. Hartley. "I shouldlike to buy him. He ap pears so kind and gentle." Mr. Hartley passed his hand down the pony's hind leg to discover sany blemishes. Like a flash , the ani mal smote the hand . that caressed him,- and wheeled and kicked vic iously, with both hind feet, sending Mr. Hartley's hat high in the air. The gentleman essayed to retaliate in kind but he was soon compelled to retreat, the length of the stake-rope only saving him from utter annihi lation. Since the encounter Mr. Hartley has not been able to work on account of a lacerated hand and probably a number of inapparent injuries which he does not care , to disclose. He is endeavoring to find the owner of the pony, not for the purpose of buying the animal, but with the intention of presenting a claim for damages.
