Foundation Truths of ScriptureV
After being confined more than
three months In a Portland hospital,
Mrs. B. W. Taylor was broaght home
Thursday. The ttlp from Portland
was made on a cot In the baggage car,
with great fatigue to the patient. She
Is now at her home In an enfeebled
condition, with a very stua'l allowance
of milk, administered at Intervals; a
her only diet. Twice in the hospital,
she was under the surgeon's knife.
While Mrs. H. M. Stone was out
calling Tuesday af leruoon, some per
son eatererf hrriotn and stole twen
ty dollars which she had left In a
drawer upon going out. The denomi
nations i f the coins were a ten dollar
gold piece and two five dollar gold
pi ces. Mrs. Stone upon leaving tt e
bouse, placed tbe mney where she
thought it would be sate. Soon after
her return Bbe had eccatlon to use a
portion i f It but! found the entire a
mount miVislng. She has formed no
idea of who may have taken it.
S. L. Kline, a prominent merchant
of CorvallUt registered at ihe Port
ltnd. HU name has been mentioned
as oue i f the national commissioners
f r the Lewis and Claik Fair. Oteg
ulan. No b-tter eletlon could be
made for the place. Mr. Kline is aea
gaclous business man of wide and
most successful experience. He is a
master orgauiz r who .goes beneath
tbe surface to the detail and insists
always upon a proper arrangement
cuere. No better talent or experience
could be secured on the national board
for tbe fair that Mr. Kline would
bring, If appointed.
' The best played piece that las
been seen ia Corvallls In years, was
"Are You a MasoL?" at the Opera
house Wednesday night. It was also
oue of tbe most popular attractions as
well as tbe beet patronized. Tb au
dience was unusually large as well as
unusually demonstrative In its ap
proval ot the many ludicrous scenes.
The financial success of tbe venture
has caused the management to de
termine to continue the policy of
bringing first-class attractions to Cor
vallls, and an arrangement with that
end in view has been taken up with
managers in Seattle and Portland. .
A steamer Is once more on tbe
Taqulca route. She does not, how
