A case of smallpox has develi
ped in the family of Robert Vidito.
who resides on Ninth between Jef
ferson and Adams. It is a two
year old child that is afflicted, and
the case is of very mild type. The
child had the disease several days
before the nature of the ailment be
came known. Even then, of ths
three physicians consulted, only
one was fairly positive that the dis
ease was smallpox. It Is supposed
that the father carried the contagion
home from his livery stable, where
Dugan rendezvoused for a day or
two before it was .discovered that
he was suffering with smallpox.
The Vidito house is under quaran
tine, the yellow flag being unfurled
at the place late Saturday forenoon.
The instance makes two places in
town now under quarantine, the
Tucker place being the other. Du
gan was discharged from the pest

family, is spending a few days on
the Monroe larm, was in :', town
Monday. -He has sold ' his xesid

leased it for a 3rear. Mr. If duck
says if the proposed electric road
is built between Corvallis and Eu

his farm from the market and oc
cupy it with his f family. Mr:
Houck believes that the roadv if
built, will double the value of all

'' There gies
N airangitnents have been
made by the Presbyterian congre
gation to fill the vacancy in the
pnlpic of their church,- caused by
the resignation of Rev. Carrick.
The resignation was not - expected
by the congregation in general, and
up to the presect no steps in the
way of securing a successor have
been taken. The membeis are ani
xions to secure a strong preacher,
and the field . will be thoroughly
survey-d before a call will be made.
The membership is large; and the
position of pastor of tbe churc 1 de
- John Scott rode Jesse Wiley's
brown mare on Front street Sunday
morning. Berry's auto was. tak
ing a turn along the thoroughfare
at the same time. The mare eyed
the thing suspiciously from afar,
and when she got up about as close
to it as she thought she ought to
be, she flew the track. That : was"
near the lumber pile at the Wood
cock buildings, and before she fin
ished piroueting, the rider disap
peared from her back. John swung
to the reins,- however, until in one
of her jumps the unmanageable
mare was directly over his . pros
trate form, and then he let go. He
was not injured. .
Building operations have fin
ally been commenced on the new
church edifice that is to replace
Simpson's chapel in the Belknap
settlement. The new building is to
be one of the finest country churches
in the valley, costing about $2,000.
The old structure that it is to re
place is one of the landmarks of
the county, its history ' dating far
back into pioneer days. From it,"
many of the. ; neighborhood dead
have been buried, and clustering
round it are many memories that
make the old church sacred to resi
dents of the vicinity. The ravages
of time and the increase in popula
tion, however,-have made a .new
building necessary, and the 'old
one is to go the way of the world.
The new church is to be located at
the Goodman cross roads, about a
mile from the old meeting place.
' HUNTING A PESr HOUSE.
Old one to be Abandoned Too Close
- to Public Road-Passers-by
" Don't Like it.
The question 'of "a pet house
worries- city authorities - Chief !
Lane is convinced that the one that j
has been in use must be abandoned.
Its location so near the public road :
is highly objec ionab'e to residents
to thenoithward. Many are afraid r
to. pass 1 he vicinity, when the y ell' w I'

-danger in every flap of its yellow f
folds, and it the Smallpox patient

The trip of the man who returned

these columns. r Probably t people j
are not to blame for their jeaTS. Uo
body wants the disease, arid they .
are wise who are prudent, These,
and other reasons make itne essary '
to arrange for a new . p-st house,
and - therein - lies - .the diffi -ulty.
Where is the house? -Where the
location that everybody wi'l consent
to? Where the spot where patients
may be -properly isolated, and yet
be within.- easy reach . of - town?.
Kuropatkin ntv.r knows where the
Japs are going to strike until too
late. Chief Lane has a greater pro
blem on his hands an oceassional
patient ,to house, and no where on
earth to put him. " -
Efforts are now afoot for a solu
tion ot the, trouble. No patient is
in the . old pest hous, and so far
there is no known candidate, the
experience of the Summer, seems to
be that there will, however, be a
