A private letter from Manager
Stone explains some things about
the new train service. The wait of
the evening train for the" arrival
from Portland involves a delay of
two to four hours, and causes the
company an additional expense of
about $75 per month, On a form
er occasion the company ran such
a train for some months between
Corvallis and Albany, but the pas
senger business failed to pay, and
it was taken off. The most re
ceived any month was $130. In
his letter, Mr. Stone says: "If
we cannot get enough money tiut
of the holding this train up in the
evening until 7:15 to pay the ad
ditional expenses, we reserve the
right to take it off at any time.
However, I beg to assure you that
11 we can make it a paying invest- (
meut, the train will be continued."

A well known former resident
of Benton county met his death
while acting as brakeman on a
train near Los Angeles, a few days
ago. He was Merl Jackson, who
was born and reared near Monroe,
where many relatives- now reside.
Mr. Jackson was about 23 years
of age, and the trip was the first
that he had made after beiug tak
en on as a regular employe of the
road. In some manner he fell be
tween the cars, and lived but 20
minutes after the accident. Many
friends in this vicinity will regret
the news. Interment was at Los
Angeles. ' '
They are his parents. They
are aged. They are suing him now.
In 1900, they transferred 1 farm to
him. It was all they had. A
condition of the transfer was that
he should thereafter ' support and
tare for them. Until last July, the
son paid proper attention to the old
folks, then he ceased to do so.
Their land was gone, and they
were without income. They were
obliged to go to other relatives for
shelter. The suit is in the Albany
courts, and they are endeavoring to
force him and his wife to deed the
property back to them. The above
facts are set out in the complaint.
It is the old story of helpless old
age, and the ingratitude of man.
When children forget and forsake
parents, what is the drift of the
world, and what hope in civiliza

ABOUT THE PAST.
A Scrap of History in Touch With this
. Afternoon's Football Game.
Displayed conspicuously on
the bulletin board at the college is
a group picture of the 1897 football
team, which is to give battle this
afternoon in the alumni game on
OAC. With the group is . a num
ber of scores made during its last
season of playing by the champion
team. A mong them are, McMinn
ville Colleg, o; OAC, 56; Albany
College,,o; OAC, 40; Un'ivcrsltybf
Washington, o; OAC, 16; Univer
sity of Oregon, 8, OAC, 26. In the
McMinnville game, Scoggins made
a touchdown on the kickoff. An
other player received the ball and
muffed it, about the five yard line.
Scoggins picked it up and . dashed
towards the enemy's goal, 105 yards
away. The McMinnville nleu
swarmed about him and made des
perate efforts to down the agile
little half back, but he wriggled,
plunged, side-stepped and squirm
ed his way through the whole
bunch, and never stopped until he
had planted the pigskin across the
line for a touchdown. The play
was sensational in the extreme,
and sent the sideliners. into spasms
of delight. ,
Of all the games played by the
famous team that with the Univer
sity of Washington was the greatest
The teams were not unevenly
matched, and up to nearly the close
of the first half no touchdown had
been made. The ball had been
passing back and forth with honors
fairly even, until finally OAC got
it and started down the field with
fierce line bucks, using halves, full
back and tackles with powerful ef
fect. Steadily backward they
pushed the Washington men until
a few minutes before the end of
the hall, when they crossed the
line for a touchdown. A , great
crowd of people watched the game,
and the scene that followed was
one of pandemonium. Two touch
downs were made in the last half,
and the final score was 16 to o, in
favor of OAC.

ROBBED THE GRAVE.
Of Albany Girl Is not Known What
the Ghoul Wanted.
Miss May Pierce, daughter of a
former Albany minister, died and
was buried last week at Boise,
Idaho. The next morning the
sexton discovered the grave had
been tampered with. It was found
the casket had been opened and the
body stripped. Part of the cloth
ing had been carried off and part
was in the casket and the lid of the
box was thrown on upside down.
A braid of the gul's hair was
hanging outside the box. A watch
was kept for several nights on the
supposition that the ghoul would
return to complete his work. The
parents went out .with the under-,
taker and redressed the body. . .
