Soy in Throes of Nightmare Alarms
- - the Neighborhood. .
The most heart-rending and
"blood-curdling screams and groans
that ever fell on mortal ear were
emitted Wednesday evening by
some person in a, building near
the Salvation Army hall. Nobody
but women and Chinamen were
near enough to' take- no e of the
disturbance. They were afraid to
investigate personally but one of
the ladies hastened to inform ', the
police department thit a muraer
was undoubtedly being committed
in the; ..neighborhood. A posse
headed by the chief ot police was
soon at the scene ., of the supposed
tragedy, but quietude and a barred
door confronted them. - A demand
ior admission met with no response
A more forcible - one brought
sleepy-looking boy to . the door.
"What in thunder is all this
racket about here?" demanded the
chief.-... -. -,. . -' .
"Has there been a racket here?'
inquired the boy. :.
"Yes sir. nnd you know what's
up!"shouted the officer. .
"Oh," said the lad meekly, as a
smile broke over his drowsy coun
tenance, "maybe I've been having
a spell of nightmare." .
"You bet you have, was -the
information emanating from the
voune man's room-mate, . -
The officers had a good laugh,
and regarded the matter as a closed
incident. "
The voune man who caused so
much alarm is one of 4:wo students
who batch in a small building near
the Army hall.

Mr. D. P. Daughtery well known
throughout. Mercer . and Summer

his life to the kindness of a neigh

flicted witbdiarrhoea; was attended
by. two physicians who gave' him
little, if any relief, : when a neigh
bor learning of his serious condi
tion brought him a bottle of Cham

less than 24 hours, . For sale by

Many People Have it Medicine With
Siwash Names.;
It is our habit to speaks lightly
of, if we do not actually jeer the
man who is faked. - We do this
seemingly unconscious of the var
ious times we have been humbugged
ourselves. We may not have been
deceived in the same . manner nor
by the same thing as was the otb
er fellow. The man who would
buy a gold brick might know bet
ter than to allow a fellow like Stone
to :" locate him on a timber land
claim- where there wasn't enough
timber to supply himr with tooth
picks.'. Not all men are suckers
but they are fish of some kind, and
whether they may or may not be.
taken in depends- entirely on the
kind -of bait that is used. Still, with
these facts in mind, it seems strange
that a myriad of. fish so readily
take the hook baited with a morsel
of soap: It would seem that soap
must be positively necessary to di
gestion, or that it performs some
function far more important than
the one for which it is commonly
used. Anv kind of soap answers
the purpose so long, apparently, as
it passes through the hands ot
street hawker. His manipulation
and assurance in weird words seems
to impart a charm and potency not
in any measure possessed by the
best brands of soap in the local
' There had not been for a long
time in this locality a fisherman
who baited with soap, and a large
number of Corvallis people had
not been able to supply the require
ments of their physical well-being.
A few who were financially able . to
do so, went to the Fair and became
amply satisfied forthetime and laid
in a winter s supply; out tne great
majority of -those who have acquir ,
ed the soap habit, if it may be so
termed, were compelledv to remain
at home andrsuffer the pangs of a
long felt want. '. ' : :
Providentially, however, a vend
er arrived in town last Tuesday
and there was great joy among that
portion of the populace which had
suffered so 'keenly. Many had -- be
come emaciated from the long fast
and it was delightful to observe with'
what appreciation they hailed the
advent of the fakir, v; He mounted
his platform at four o'clock in the
afternoon, of Tuesday and viewed
the hungry assemblage with? com-1
plaisance, his practiced eye giving
him unmistakable assurance of a
rich harvest.
It is not necessary to state that
he found business good. .There
was such a demand for the article
that the supply was soon exhausted
but he assured ; the , clamoring
throng that he would have . an
ample quantity at the evening
lecture ; While in . this respect
his statement proved true,- it might
not have been so except - for his
assurance that he would be here
two: or '' three days longer,"
a statement in which he was not
borne out by subsequent events.
The fakir paid his respects , also
to those people who imagine rthat
there is great efficacy in medicine
with an Indian name, and ; they 1 in
turn paid him - their'' : hard cash.
They were to use the remedy three
days, and if it did not perform a
list of wonders as long as a poor
sermon, purchasers were to return
the medicine and get - the purchase
pricewith a handsome present in ad
dition; Other baits of similar ' char
acter were 4 successfully used, but
the fakir's sojourn here was brief.
He did - hot remain to ascertain
whether or not the siwash medicine
had done its work to''- the satisfac
tion' of the' purchasers. He ' was
himself satisfied,1 and ' then - there
we're fish in other towns awaiting
him. ' -. :-; -' - '
Got First Class -Water now But
Cannot be Seen The College.
The college has the beginning
of a' new water ' works now." A
copious supply of water, the. firt
essential in such things .has been
secured ----- Four--1 wo - inch- pipes,
sunk within a square of thirty feet,
each tapping a generous water
flow are the source of supply. . One
of the wells is 116 feet deep, anoth
er 89, a third 125 and th(t .fourth
121. Each in turn has resisted
every -attempt with an engine and
a big pump to exhaust its flow, ln
the two last ones , sunk, the more
the pump was applied, the,, more
copious became the flow. , The
aggregate of the four streams when
the pump is in action is a solid
stream four inches in diameter, af
fording 2.000 gallons of water '.per
hour. '-'''
The new wells are within a fe w
feet of the heating - plant ..building
The pumping will be done by the
big engines in the latter. -The
pumps will act on all four wells at
once, and will be located in a sub
terranean passage under the floor
of the heating plant. By the arran
gement; the pipes connecting the
wells with the pump will be several
feet under the surface of the ground
and people passing over them will
neither see nor know aught of the
fact that the water works of the
college is beneath.

is rather unusual. . Commonly the

News from Oregon City is to the
effect that, while ' they will not
swear to it, officials of the land
office there believe Preacher Ken
nedy was in their office the morn
ing after the burglary he is ' alleged
to have committed at Hillsboro.
Many people at Hillsboro and
Forest Grove, acquainted with the
facts' are said to- believe in the
minister's innocence. If .after all,
the man is innocent,: what is to be
the reward of those who have muti

theme was an account of his ' obser

surmise that the commissioner is a
