Tbe TJ. ot O. and Albany College
teams played a game of football at
Albany Wednesday, and by a place
kick in the last minute of play, Eu
gene won by a score ot four to naught.
About 30 college students and Uoival
lisites went over to see the game.
Most ot those aver that the two teams
were fairly evenly matched, but that
by straight football, Albany made per
haps double tbe yardage that was
made by the Eugene men. The play
was most of the time in Albany terri
tory, but that was due to the superior
punting of Eugene. The final score,
according to these acoounts, was also
due to bad judgment on the part ot
tbe Albany quarterback, who signaled
for a UnebuQk when he should have
ordered a punt that would have car
ried the ball out of danger.

HATS OF STRAW.
Gets tbe Credit For

The earliest makers of straw hats
were unquestionably the Chinese.
Their work was by no means rough
In character, but plaited and sewn to
gether with, considerable skill, as may
be seen today in the neighborhood Nof
canton. . - , ; .
In Europe hats were first made in
Paris by a Swiss so early as 1404, and
we find mentioned among the entries
of an Inventory of the effects of Sir
John Fastolfe, 1459, "four strawen
hattes," showing them to have been
great rarities. Coryatt mentions them
as worn in Provence, with a hundred
seams, lined with silver and curiously
worked. .- ,-

century and has maintained A with
considerable skill, ever since.' . Bedford-

A Story of Matt Carpenter.
Matt Carpenter, the famous Wis
consin senator, was pleading a case be
fore the supreme court. Before he had
got half through with his argument the
Judges had made-up their minds that
his case was without merit, and), more
over, that he was unprepared. When
he finished his argument and counsel
for the other side got up to reply, the
Judges whispered to each other, nodded
and then the chief justice said, "I don't
think it will be necessary to hear from
you, sir." Carpenter's opponent was
deaf, and he could only tell that tbe
thief Justice was addieaaUia- hlia.--He-
turned to Carpenter for aid. "What
did the chief justice say, Matt?" he
whispered. "He said he'd rather give
yon the case than listen to you," Car
penter bawled in his ear.
The Wrong Department.
A. prominent physician tells this story
at the expense of the modern craze for
specialization in the medical profes
sion: A poor woman from the east side
of itlew York Went to a nearby dispen
sary to ask aid for her little son, who
iiul had one of his fingers smashed
by a baseball bat. At the first room
where she applied she was told by a
cv.vt attendant that the boy could not
be treated there. " .
'Wrong place," he explained. "This is
th- oye and ear department."
Vere is der thumb nnd finger depart-nu-iit?"
inquired the woman simply.

LAST SUMMER'S WORK
PERMANENT - CURES PER
FORMED BY DR. DARRIN
IN SALEM NOW AT
Among the many caseB treated
by Dr. Darrio, and presr-ated- for
poblicatioD, are the folio ing which
speaks ' volumes for - the doctor's
skill and the permanency of his
cures. Mrs. Ross and Mr. Darby
are well known in Marion county.
. MK. DABBY CORED OF CATARRH.
- Salem, Or., June "19, 1902 Dr.
Darrin. For eight years I have
been afflicted with catarrh in the
head- and throat, causing bleeding
of the nose. Your treatment, by
electricity and medicines cured me
completely. I will say that for tbe
small amount you charged me, I
would not endure the catarrh one
day though it cost me ten times the
amount I gave you to cure me. I
offer you these few lines of testimo
ny with my own free will.
C. W. Dabby.
MRS. BOSS' GOOD LCCK.
Sam, Ontton, June 15, 1903.
To the Editor; Dear Sir: I am
p'rood to witness to the public the
skill of Dr. Darrin as a physician.;
Nearly ten years ago I presented
myself to him a miserable diseased
physical wreck, body and. mind,
never having a thought of seeing a
well day again, but . hoping to re
ceive from him some temporary
relief. One year ago I did not dare
take a mouthful of solid : food into
my stomach. ; I lived on soup and
cocoa on account of my intense suf
fering apparently afflicted with
an acute and incurable disease' of
tbe stomach. . I took the treatment
of Dr. Darrin threa months and
have since been able to sit down to
any kind of food and relish it to
my satisfaction, never fearing any
evil results. My afflictions were
chronic dyspepsia, constipation, liv
er and kidney complaints, pains in
the heart and lungs and diseases
peculiar to my sex. Now life is a
pleasure, I am a stranger , to pain
of any form. Have not had such
health in twenty, years. I feel lift
ed into a new world and - enjoy all
thing on account, of feeling well
again. Publish this, that others
may be benefitted.. Refer . vour
readers to me at Salem, Or.
Mrs. Betjiah .. Ross.
