I. H. and R. D. Woodward
were very much pleased to receive
a pair of China Pheasants from
Gene M. Simpson of Corvallis Ore;
this week. The birds came in the
best of condition. They are quick
as a flash and as handsome a bird
as one could wish to see. The fe
male is somewhat like the prairie
chicken only prettier. The male,
however, is perhaps equal to a bird
of paradise. His shiny neck, beau
tifully spotted back, and extremely
long dressy tail make him a rare
specimen of a bird. The Onlooker,
Anvent that proved of more
than passing interest occurred at
the First Methodist church Friday
evening," It was an informal recep
tion tendered Rev. and Mrs. Feese
by: members i of the congregation.
The church parlor was filled with
guests, who vied with each other
in making. the occasion one of plea
sure for all. Features of special
interest were a vocal solo by .Dr.
Cathey. two piano numbers by
Frank A. White, who graduated
from the OAC musical department
last June, a solo by R. N. White,
and a violin number by Winnifred
Gates, Sandwiches, cake and cof
fee concluded the evening's enter
tainment. ' '.-'';.

Cotton on the stem is a thing
which was exhibited in Corvallis
this week. It came all the way
from Arkansas , having been sent
to Victor Moses by friends in that
state, knowing that it would be
viewed with interest by many per
sons here who had never seen the
article in any stage of growth. In
the package of cotton there were
samples just opening the pod, oth
, ers in full bloom, and also samples
showing its condition after the
process of ginning, or cleaning.
The cotton buds begin to open
when they are the size of a walnut,
and the fluffy white cotton gradual
ly rolls jout until it reaches a mass
which, when slightly compressed,
would equal a small apple.
What has originally been the cot
ton pod becomes petals. These, in
the samples shown here are attach
ed to a stem one-eighth of an inch
in diameter, and the stem is attach
ed to a stalk one-quarter of an inch
in diameter. Cotton seeds tbe size
of small white beans grow pro
miscously within the fiber.
Accompanying the cotton sent
to Mr. Moses there was a quantity
of hickory nuts in various stages of
development. These also are new
to many Oregonians.

Sure They Know him.
. As yet nothing has developed
in the burglarv case. ihe man
who got the bullet frpm Officer
Osburn's revolver in , his body has
managed by some means to ... keep
his hiding place a secret. , ihe sus
picion the officers had as to the
identity of the man has developed
into almost - j practical ."certainty.
They have a photo, which several
persons have recognized as a man
who was in the saloon during the
day and evening "-' preceeding the
robbery. : Diligent search was made
for .him all over town the following
morning, but. he was nowhere to be
found. -fHis only meansof leaving
at an early hour was by train, . and
these the officers visited V! He ' dis
appeared so suddenly that -J; little

Added to the ' circumstances is
the fact that the suspect is an all
roundcrook. His line 6f work is
larceny and burglaryTHe has been
in jail, several times ' ! on t these
counts, and is wanted now in Port
land. He was once m the Benton
county jail as a "Lincoln county
prisoner, and at that time he gained
notoriety by holding up Sheriff
Rickard and permitted Ed Scott to
escape with a spectacular dash, for
liberty and a day of all round sen
sation in town', which ended before
aight fall with the capture and re
turn of Scott to jail. The suspect's

i r . UNIVERSITY WON - .' ' I
Annual Football . Game The Score is
' " Six to Five. ,:-, . . -
; . The annual game of football he
tween the state university and OAC
elevens is history, ' and the record
reads. TJ of O, six; OAC five. The
game turned pn the picking of a
goal, and by the token, victory res
ted with - the university! "With a
deft and accurate swing of his right
leg, Joe Templeton, captain of ihe
university eleven, sent the oval
spinning between the goal posts
and set the score of his team in a
notch that the Oregon Aggies near
ly., but not quite': matched. . It was
a beautiful kick, " made . from a dif
ficult spot, and, though, nobody
knew it at thetime it won the
Northwest College Championship
for the U of O eleven". It came aft
ter the game .hadbeen 'in progress
but : eight minutes, but it was the
last point that : the University... men
were able to score in tne game.
Fighting again-t the odds "of this
early; score crippled with three of
their veteran team, mates put of the
game without their, captain, and
with but six men playing in their
regular positions, the resolute
Aggies held their -unhandicapped
antagonists to this original score
throughout ) the remaining forty
wo minutes of ; plav. Better still,
with the spirit of last ditch fighters,
after , being worsted in the first, half,
they rallied, and in the second half,
carried the ball more and made
more yardage than did their un
scathed opponents, made a bigger
percentage of . gains, : and nn addi
tion, notched out a figure for their
own score, that will always tell the
story that T after all, it was ..only
a - goal .3 kick that, won the, game
It was a gallant stand by a gallant
band and it is no wonder that the
men they strove against went home
without a note-of triumph or ban
ner flying, and with many an ua-der-breath
expression of thankful
ness that the old leader and his
veteran mates were , not in the team
; It is Dow Walker, . the redoubt- -able
center in the OAC line to
whom the Aggies owe their touch
down and the prestige that achieve
ment gives them. . Others 61 the
old guard did their duty that day
and none more than Williams and
Abraham, and Bower,' Dunlap, and
Rhinehart, and so did Ray Walker
and Steiwer and Emily and Cooper
as long as he lasted, ' of the new
men; but it was Dow Walkerwho.
with a totr weight of men on "top" of
fcim in" a pile up, ' .crawled out of
the heap with the : coveted oval in
his arms, crept away unobserved to
a safe distance, and then leaping "to '
his feet sprinted away like a-;quart--
tfr horse for a 90, yard run and a
touchdown.' ' ' ' -;
It was a run that chilled " the
marrow and froze the blood of the'
Eugene rooters, but it, made the
grand' stand roar and ' screech and
scream as it never . did ; such things
before. . Walker had been playing
like a demon from the moment the
game opened. His ankle was in a
plaster of Paris cast, and it pained
him every step, but he had torn up
the Eugene line and tackled all ov
er the field. He was handicapped
to be chief man in the sprint, under
the circumstances, but when he
found himself loose with the ball,
he lit out to do his best. Arnspig
er and Reid of the University tried
to catch him, but the big fellow
looked back and saw them coming.
Before that, they , had gamed a
little on him, but they didn't- any
more. Over the slippery ' field in
lull flight the "big fellow went, over
it, in hot pursuit . went the lemon
men while the Aggie rooters yelled
and screamed with delight. But
it was no use. - Over the goal line
plunged the. big runner and there
he"planted the precious ball" safe
and "sound for a touchdown . for the
orange and turned with a grin to
see how the rest of the fellows were'
making it. Up the field ' with the
others, came Joe Templeton, tears
coursing down his cheeks. It was
he who had Jumbled the half, and
his mortification ' was complete.
Comfort came to hini only when it
came time for somebody oh " the
Aggie team to try . for . the goal.
Cooper was to have ' done the kick-- j.
ing, but he had lelt the game in
the first half. Not a man " among
them had ever tried a goal kick in
a match game, and Rinehart begged
for a volunteer. To succeed was to
tie the game, and it was then as
never before that Captain ' Pilking
ton was-missed. -The lot fell to
Rinehart, and the plucky - little
quarterback tried, and missed.
The ball was wet, K slippery and
heavy. Never an Aggie blamed
the lad, but the tears welled up in
his eyes, and peace reigned '.once
more in Joe Templeton' s heart.
The story of the game is one' .of
strong offense on both sides,,; ' of
somewhat superior defense for the
University and of marked superior
ity for the' Aggies in handling the
, ball s Claims are m !c that 1. ' the
visiting elevea was lar stronger,
