One Night No Clues. !
Thieves were abroad last Satur
day night, i and ' three; : Corvallis
residences were-vwiteailhe hose
of Seymour Simpson 'was entered
and many articles were taken.
There was a similar experience at
the home of Mrsi Espey. though
1 he main building was not entered.
The burglar entered the house of
WV E. Yates, but his presence was
discovered early in the game,-- and
the thiet fled without ; i securing
anything. The police have been
busy on the case, but are- working
without clues, and are much at sea,
with small prospect that the cap
ture will be effected.
' At the Simpson house, admission
was gained through the Iront door,
which appears to have been un
locked. Thence the thief passed
into other rooms,, carryiug off la.
bed spread, lace curtains, ; pillow
shams and other articles of the sort
found in a drawer. An overcoat
was taken, a pipe and tobacco, and
a 'number of knives and forks. From
one of the rooms a key was secured
to the fruit house, outside. Pass
ing through the kitchen door, the
iruit nouse was visited, and six
jars of fruit abstracted. The key
was subsequently found on the
walk between the fruit house and
the main building. The family
was not disturbed by the move
ments of the intruder, although the
house was thoroughly ransacked
At the Yates house, the thief
was less successful.. Entrance was
obtained through an unlocked door
and admission gained to the dining
room. W. E. Yates occupied an
adjoining room, the door to which
was open. He heard footsteps in
the other room, and turned on the
electric light at the head of his
bed. Bedlam at once broke loose
in the adjoining room, ; when the
thief made a dash to get away,
and collided with the stove. He

Something' Mor Abtiat the Plan':
Practically all the stock was subr '
scribed after an -hour's v canvass by
the committee Monday, or the new
company that it is proposed , lo orr
gamze tor the-, construction oj -an
independent telephone, .system , in
Corvallis.;. Committeemen Z. H.
Davis and A- J Johnson made the
canvass, and in but a . short- time
booked subscriptions, for 45 , shares
out of the required fifty, ; ihe plan
tor the tormation ot the company
is on the basis of the offer made by
Mr De Varney .of the Kansas City
company, it ulty tjorvauis citi
zens will take one share. . each of
the stock at $25 per share, aggre
gating $1,250 of the proposed . cap
ital. Mr, De Varney's comoany will
put in the rest of the money. , If at
any time daring 10 years the stock
holders so desire, they: can buy the
system at the cost: price, .plui six
per cent interest. Or, if , local
stockholders so desire, they can,, by
putting up the necessary capital,
own a majority of the stock at the
outset. The success in selling
stock is accounted by the 1 commit'
tee as very encouraging,- and belief
is strong that the outcome of the
movement will be a flourishing in
dependent system. '""..' ,
It is proposed by Mr. DeVarney
to install the express system of
phones, in which the taking down
of the receiver rings np the central
office. Only two phones are tojbe
on a party line. The mechanical
arrangement of the phones is such
that only the instrument of the
person wanted rings, The other
phone on the line does not ring,
and in consequence the person call
ed always knows that when his
phone rings he is the person want
ed. . The rates are to be the same
as those now in" vogue in the' pres
ent local system. . The , rates lor
switching for rural phones built
and maintained by farmers are to
be $1 to $2 per mouth per line, the
amount, to, be divided pro rata
among the phones on such line,
the switching to include switches
with the complete Corvallis system
or any other independent line. .

' President French of the Normal
school at Weston, was a Corvallis
visitor Sunday:' Heis making a tour
of educational - .institutions in-ithe
Willamette valley,: studying . the"
question of boarding halls for students.-
The enrollment at the Wes
ton normal is 125."
The following curious incident
happened last year while President
French traveled in Eastern-Oregon.
He was i enroute from- Heppner to
John Day,. .., When he registered, at
the Heppner hotel, the clerk at once
showed him great consideration tak
ing him to the best room in the
house. Next morning. muchto the
surprise of the guest, the same unu-
sal attention' was manifest. Ah early
Lbreakfast especially prepared was
all ready for him in order that he
might catch the stage. ..JThe travel
ler was immensely pleased at the
treatment and was delighted again
when the stage drove lip at
the door and he was informed that
he was to have choice of the seats.
He selected a seat by the drive and
much flattered by all this considera
tion, the trip for the John Day
began. :
. A few miles out of town a buggy
driven at a furious rate overtook and
passed the stage. A man in the
vehicle glared at French as the bug
gy passed. : This man stood on the
platform of the stage station . when
the coach pulled in. "Say, is your
name French," he said, as .French
alighted for a moment while the
horses were being changed.1 "Yes;
that's my name, thank you" was
the response. Well, French, is my
name also, and I wired the Heppner
hotel people to reserve me a room
and provide other conveniences. You
occupied my room last night, you
ate my breakfast this morning, you
are riding in my seat now, and I am
hurrying on to Portland to reach
my wife, before you do.
