IN ASHES NOW.
The big Union Service for JNext Sun
day Churches not Unanimous :
for it. - "
The union service of the church
es that was planned by., the : com
mittee to bi a leading Sunday fea
ture of the three day's celebration
of the 4th, is not to be at all. It
was the committee's idea to have a
quiet, orderly Sunday between the
first and last days of the celebration
and for the purpose planned a - big
anion service with all the churches
participating for 1 1 o'clock or the
the midafternoon, to be followed, "
later by a sacred concert. -
But the big union servxe is not
to be. " Instead, there will be on the
flat near ; Mary's driver bridge, a
base ball game between two con
testing teams) the game to begin
about half past two o'clock The
general committee is disappointed
in the turn of affairs, but was un
able to provide the union service as
scheduled. In the beginning,
Revs. Carrick. Green and x Moore
were appointed a committee of min
isters to ascertain and report upon
the advisability and possibility of
the union meeting. A meeting
ot the ministerial association was
secured by them,: and : thereat the
plan was considered. Subsequent
ly, the committee reported to the
general committee that it had de
veloped that unanimous action
could not be secured in the church
es with reference to the union serv
ice.'- borne iurther attempt- was
made with reference to the matter,
but it has been finally dropped.
and the base ball game has ' been
substituted. The sacred concert,
will however, be earned out as
originally planned, and will take
place on Mam street between seven
o clock and 8 30 Sunday evening
Well Known Farm House of Maniy
Currier Destroyed by Fire.
The farm ; home of Manly Cur
rier, together with a large part of
the contents, was entirely destroy
ed by fire Sunday morning. The
residence was one of ' the largest
and best known in the county, and
was located on the Currier -farm,
dozen miles south of Corvallis.
The fire occurred about ten o'clock
in the morning,' and originated in a
back room in the upper - portion of
the house A ' lighted lamp : was
left by Richard Scott in a bed room
while he went out for; a 1 moment.
When he Tetufned,v lie found"; the
room ablaze- with ; flames, whether
due to an explosion of the lamp, or
otherwise is not known. By. the
time it was discovered the fire was
far beyond control, and the efforts
of the family were directed to sav
ing as much of the contents as pos
The building was a large two-
story structure, containing a dozen
or ntteen rooms, and covered
large area of ground. A woodshed
in the rear stretched away in the
direction of the barn, from which
it was only about sixty feet remov
ed. Over the woodshed was a work
shop, and within a comparatively
short time, the whole building was
a mass of flames. The removal of
furniture soon became difficult,
and attention had to be directed to
the saving of the barn. Neighbors
arrivedanddid their utmost to assist
in the work of: saving. ' Most of
the articles from the living parlors
and other lower rooms, except the
kitchen were saved, as was a quan
tity of bedding and apparel from
the upper story. 1 he piano was
carried out, and of the dozen beds
in the building, about three were
removed. The dishes and kitchen
Vernon, ! utensils were all burned.
Another case of smallpox has
appeared. The new victim is Jacob
Hurlburt, who resides in the coun
try, eight miles south of Corvallis.
He came to Corvallis Monday and
proceeded to Dr. Lee for a diagno
sis of the breaking out on his face.
He was at once told that it was
smallpox but to make assurance
doubly sure, Mr. Hurlburt took id-
all the carpets and many
tides of use and value.
The fire lasted for about two
hours, and at the end of that time
the big farm house had beeu , re
duced to smouldering ruins. ' Dr
Charles Lee and wife of this city
were guests in the house at the
time. Many neighbors, collected on
the scene before the conflagration
ended. 1 he lamily is now camp
ing, three tents having been called
into requisition, and the cook wag-
ditional medical advice. This . on that goes with the threshing ma
time he went to Dr. Farra, by
whom the same diagnosis was giv-!
en. Mr, Hurlburt hurried out of
town at once. The case is describ-,
ed by the physicians to be well de
veloped, but of mild type. .
Misses Emma and Celia Tor

BO WEN BEAT HIM.
Race for a Land Title How an
sea Rancher Saved his Home,
A dusty, , travel-stained man
waited at the court house, when
people came down town to business
the other morning. ' ' He had been
there since the early, hours of the
morning It was seven o' clock
when the court house janitor ap
peared, and of - him the stranger
inquired at what hour the . clerk's
office would be open. When told
that the office opened to the public.
another hour's vigil.
The stranger was Samuel Bo wen
of Alsea.: He has lived on a home
stead in that country for the past
five years. ,- He has a house and
barn, two or three miles ' of fence
and other improvements. He was
on hand the moment the clerk's
office opened and he plunged at
once into his errand. He explained
that he wanted to file on the home
stead. He had never filed an en
try on it, but had been holding it
on the filing of ' a : former "home
steader who had subsequently de
serted the place. ;
When the business was over
Mr. tsowen conhded to a mend in
town the secret of his anxiety. He
had heard late the previous even
ing that another party was going to
jump his home. Because Bowen
had never made his entry filing;
this .was -easily -possible. Bowen
had mounted a horse, immediately
on hearing of the other man's in
tention, and started post haste for
The next day after Bowen made
his filing, another, party appeared
at the clerk s office to file on three
fourths of the . land occupied by
Bowen, but he came too late. His
name was not-learned.
CUPID'S LATE CAPER.
On a Railroad Train How a Cascade
Couple Took in the Excursion.
- They took in. the Sunday excur
sion this certain couple did. They
were a laddie and lassie from some
where in the Cascades, over - for a
day at the ocean beach. If there
is anything :- in signs, according to
the statements of: passengers, ' he
loved her and she: loved him; They
gazed deep down into the depths
of each other's eyes and by other
manifestations, gave- evidence of
their mutual admiration. -
By and by, as they journeyed on,
their heads nodded and nodded to
ward each other, until they finally
touched. There had been an early
morning start on the train, a day at
the beach, and it is not wonderful
that they fell asleep, especially with
two hearts beating taps on two
diaphragms, with all the energy with
twhich a small ..boy layg .Ahje.. ,sfck
ior iue nrsi time on a new srjare
drum. It was an - innocent peace
ful scene of love and trust, but it
amused the passengers. Presently,
a young woman who doesn' t live a
thousand miles from Corvallis, took
her veil, and with it tied the two
tired heads together. Thus linked
the two hearts beat on while the
cars thundered over the bridges and
through the tunnels until Blodgett
was reached when there was a stir
in the seat of the Cascade lad and
lassie. One of them awoke, and in
the effort at freedom, the other was
awakened. Both tugged at the
knotted veil, while all the people in
the car looked on and guffawed.
When the veil was finally unloosed
it was thrown on the floor with . a
spitefulness to have frightened
Carrie Nation in a full career with
her hatchet. The spooney couple
ana tne seaside are almost synony
mous and this new pair from the
Cascades are not the first to afford
a carfull of people an hour of di
