The fiftieth anniversary of the
wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Adam
Radir was celebrated at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Graham
Wednesday evening The couple
was married in Pittsburg, Pennsyl
vania April 6, 1854, and later be
came pioneer residents of the vicinity
of Corvallis. As a maiden Mrs
Radir was Miss Margaret Leethman
and is a native of the Emerald Isle.
Mr. Radir is a native of Germany.
.The anniversary was celebrated with
supper and a subsequent period of
social conversation, in which many
old time friends participated.
Great sympathy was expressed
by bystanders on Mam street T. hurs
day afternoon for a stranger, who
was in deep grief. The evidence
of the mental and heart agony
through which he was passing was
observable by everyone. He was a
traveling agent for a California
nursery. About . midafternoon he
received a telegram from San Fran
cisco, announcing the death of his
wife. Five minutes beforeih.had
dropped a letter in the I3af .:post
office, addressed to her "Later, he
called at the office for the letter, ex
plaining through sobs and tears
that it was no use now, and the in
cident moved deeply those gathered
in the vestibule.
City authorities . have been
bothered for several days with the
problem of what to do with rubbish.
A general cleaning up is to be in
augurated when things dry up a
little, and the town is without a
dumpingground. Plansare now afoot
to build a chute off the high bank
to the river near Dixon Creek and
from there drop rubbish into the
Willamette. If this arrangement is
effected, then there will remain the
dilemma of what to do with dead ani
mals. In the past, the city has had
various burial places" Things have
developed however to make all of
them unavailable. A dead horse was
started on the way to one of them
the other day, and when half way
there the procession was halted by
the owner and ordered back to town.
For the present the animal that dies

One Used Shotgun and the Other a Re
volver Happened in Alsea.
Our unusually quiet valley was
thrown into a state of excitement
Tuesday morning by the report
that a battle royal had been fought
out on Milt Creek, with A. D. Ho
ard and E. M. Kimball as com
batants. " - "
During the skirmish, Huardre
lied upon a double barrel shotgun
while Kimball yielded a 38 caliber
revolver, 3 inch barrel- Huard
took first shot at about 30 steps
range, the shot taking effect in
Kimball's face and chest. Kimball
returned the fire. J When Hoard
fired the other barrel, the charge
sprinkled Kimball about the abdo
men, hands and torearm. -Kimball
continued, to fire until
his gun was empty, when" both
finding themselves out 01 ammun
ition, they retreated in good order.
Huard was unhurt and Kimball is
not seriously injured, . although
eight shot took effect in the face.
Bad blood has existed tor some
time and all diplomatic and other
relations have been cast off long
ago. The trouble is! over territory
both claim and a road which Kim
ball wants to cut across the corner
of Huards place. -No complaint
will be charged by either of the
The battle took place in front of
Huard's house On a vacant por
tion of Huard's place. The men
had engaged in a war of words a
few minutes before on Kimball's
land. Both went to their houses
about two hundred yards, and later
Kimball started over Huard's laud
to where a neighbor was cutting

away. Kimball turned his iace to

THEIR BIG .SHOOT. -
By Albany Route Change of Arran
gement Under Consideration.
F. W. Vaille, assistant superin
tendent of the railway mail service,
with headquarters at Portland was
in Corvallis for a few hours Wed
nesday morning. His trip had
chiefly to do with the new Albany
Corvallis mail route. The volume
of mail carried by that route has
become so great that- something of
a problem has arisen in handling it.
Ten big sacks of matter are not in
frequent, constituting a weight far
beyond what was expected and offer
ing serious inconvenience tothetar-
rier. It is possible that arrange
ments will be made for less urgent
mail like public documents and
other franked mail to be held in
Portland for the morning westside
instead of coming out on the east-,
side the evening before. -
Mr. Vaille is the man who organ
ized the mail service in the Philip
pines over which he presided as
Director of Posts for three, years.
