Corvallis Incident. Two "dead soldiers" attracted wide attention on Main street for a time yesterday. They were two immense whiskey barrels with nothing left inside but the smell of what had been there. They rested on the pavement in front of Wues tefelt's late place, while in process of removal to the railroad station for shipment to Portland. Their immense size was a part of the sec ret of the great attention paid them. Their excellent workmanship was also a part of the attraction. But more than all were they objects of interest because these wet relics rested on a main thoroughfare of this dry town. All forenoon a crowd stood round them and joked about the situation. Henderson remarked that it was worth a nickel to smell the bung hole, and some body else claimed that a passing old soaker actually shed tears at the sight of them both ' empty. All guessed at how rriticb each barrel would hold, and Jake Blumberg al lowed either would hold 145 or I50 gallons. Jake was about tefll enough fqrTus mouth to reach the bung holeiC6fiie"56dy said that was how Jacob was able to figure out so closely the capacity of the barrels, which - subsequently turnedoui to be 1 53 gallons, The statement was that each barrel was ' worth 19" or THE BOY WON. Back His. Mother's Farm, Which Law- : yers got as Their Fee for Getting ; Her a Divorce. -A decision just handed down by Judge Hamilton awards to a-son a Benton" county farm that two Sa lem lawyers, cot as alee for a di vorce they secured for the boy's mother, from his father. The case was tried at the November term of the circuit court, and by reason of the outcome, as well as the unusual character of the facts, is extremely interesting-. . .The. plaintiff - in the case was James Hamilton, of Salem, aged 21 years. - The farm which he won back by the lawsuit, is a part of the Belcher donation claim near the Jesse Foster" place, and occupied by .himer Dinsresr The vouna: man s mother was Anna,. Hamilton, who died m.March-,.-1901, and his father was John Hamilton. The complaint alleged that in December,. ; 1 901, the mother secured the services of Wi II, tHihnes , and : Webster Holmes as attorneys to take charge of her suit for divorce against herhus band John Hamilton. The divorce suit provided for a proper business settlement between Mr. and . Mrs. Hamilton, and in January, 1901, a decree : of, divorce was granted. The; Beaton county farm which comprises 419 acres and is valued in the complaint at $2,600, was the wife's portion of. the - comtminity property as provided for in the.di vorce decree. .The farm, -on the day the divorce was - granted, An na "Hamilton conveyed by .deed to Webster Holmes, as trustee,?: the consideration being $500. At that 't'me James Hamilton, was .but 18 years of age.. . Three months later, the .mother died at Denver, ; Colo rado. . ; r : " , ' In the present suit, James Ham ilton alleged -in his complaint that, since attaining his majority, he has made demand on W, H. Holmes and Webster Holmes for return of the farm to him: but this they re fused to do, claiming that the farm was fee they received for conduct ing the divorce case for Anna Ham ilton. Hamilton , alleged that $250 would have been a reasonable .fee for legal service in.;the divorce case and that he was willing that Wj H.Holmes and Webster Holmes should be allowed that amount. He asked the court to give him proper deed to the Benton farm, free of the mortgage of $700 which had been put on the place since it was deeded to Webster Holmes. A copy of the deed by which the moth er conveyed the property to Web ster Holmes appeared in the com plaint.. ; - , ;'",' . Tbe decision bf Judge Hamilton finds on every point for the boy. It orders the farm restored to him, and gives Webster Holmes 30 days in which fo free the place,- from the mortgage of; $700, It - provides that the sum of $250 shall be paid the Holmes for their services, in se curing the mother's divorce, and orders them to pay ; the costs and bisbursements of the present law suit. . .

He Type Writes His Letters Now That is, When (he Public Doesn't Interfere. Police Judge Greffoz has bought a new typewriter and is learning to use it. The public takes an inters est in his progress, and keeps him much confused. He was in the midst of writing a beautiful sen tence the other day when a friend knocked it all out by remarking that writing at such a speed might set the machine afire. I,ater, he got his thoughts collected and was in a fair way to finish the eloquent sentence when a lady stopped to say that a bicycle rider had knock ed her son off the sidewalk, and that the man ought to be arrested, though she didn't know his name. By this time he was so flustered that his fingers persisted in'hitting two keys of the machine at a time and - that angered him so 1 his thoughts wouldn't operate. Thenr two small boys dropped in, watched operations a minute, and looked at one another and grinned. The larger one pointed his forefinger at his own forehead and then chuck ed his thumb in the direction oi the judge, just as the latter looked up. "Get out of here" shouted the judge, and the "kids" got. In twenty minutes, it was estimated by those who stood by and watched the judge, '.hat he managed to add seven or . eight words to his letter, and they figured that , the epistle might be completedat the same rate in about a : week. His new machine is a Remington, and the. climax came when a man came in and, after watching operations for a minute," remarked that a Rem ington machine was not worth a whoop anyway. -'Why didn't he buy some other machine. Then His Honor lost patience. Barring the fact that he is a (Godly man, he would have sworn in .great wrath; for. he kicked savagely at his fav orite dog as it passed and stared wickedly at the new by-stander as the machine was covered and laid aside with a bang.
