LOST A ROLL OF BANS BILLS.
Vicissitudes of a Solo Player. Some
thing About a CoId Deck."
W. D. DeVarney sustained a big
loss in a solo game Thursday eve
ning. This is not the same inciden
which happened ten days ago when
the friends with whom he was play
ing wrung in upon him what is
termeda "cold deck.'In the latter
play he received a heart hand which
he regarded as a 'cinch" on all pos
sible points.- But it was otherwise.
His opponents raked in 90 points
out of a possible 120, before DeVar
ney could bring his trumps into
action. In acknowledgment of his
companions' successful work, he or
dered cigars for all present, but thi3
was not so diastrous as the heart
solo which he played last week.
A'good heart solo came to De
Varney, and after satisfying him
self that he was not again the vict
im of a job, placed a roll of bank
bills ou the table, amd jokingly,
offered to bet the package that he
would make a stated number of
points. Nbbodyl accepted the ban
ter, and DeVaVney essayed to re
place the currency in, the . outside
pocket of his coat. .But instead of
doing so he dropped the currency
upon the floor,, unknowingly. After
the lapse of an hour or so, when
DeVarney had departed, CarlHodes
discovered th"e money and placed
it in his pocket. A bystander ask
ed him. what he had round and in
answer,: Carl remarke3,- "Oh. noth
ing but a roll of bank notes,' and
his manner disarmed suspicion.
When Carl left the house' however,
he told Johnny Zeis that if any
body came around in search " of a
wad of bills to send the person to
him. --Next morning, DeVarney
was in due season looking for his
notes and was soon rewarded with
return of the lost money, amount
ing to $290. One of the bills was
of the denomination of Sioo. Mr:
DeVarney presented .Carl, with one
of the $20 bills.' ' .. '
IN THE HORNING OF LIFE.
Gtistav Woldt Passes Away After "a
Brief Illness There is General
.- . Sorrow.
1 At his home in Corvallis. Gustav
Woldt closed his eyes in the sleep
of death, Saturday morning, at the
"age "of yeairs, 8 ftnonths and--f 5-
days. He attended school as usual
up to Wednesday noon ot last week
at which time he became generally
indisposed from causes which were
not then apparent and which are
not now understood, but it is. sup
posed that death' was caused from
the breaking of an abscess which
there is now reason to believe had
formed deep in the left side.
The funeral occurred rrom the
family residence at 2 o'clock Mon
day afternoon, Rev. M.S. Bush,
of the Presbyterian church, con
ducting the ceremony. The bur
ial occurred in Crystal Lake ceme
teryr and the brief ceremony at the
grave was very largely attended
by Corvallis citizens whose admir
ation the boy had, perhaps uncon
sciously, won by his very pleasant
manner and other evidences of fine
character. Members of the eighth
grade of the public school in which
Gussie was a cheejrful student, at
tended the burial in a body and
carried abundant floral tributes to
the memory of their departed com
rade. : Monday morning his desk
at school was heavily decorated
In life Gussie Woldt had access
to many Corvallis homes . and his
lively disposition always prompted
him to ; accept ; their hospitality.
He was a bright and well-mannered
child, and, having the opportunity
of a wide acquaintance' he gained
more friends than it is the good
fortune of many - boys of his age to
successfully claim. His death, and
particularly since it was so sudden,
was attended with "much sorrow
outside the family circle.

bors and friends our -sincere and
heartfelt thanks for the many kind

TO HONOR HEROINE.
Order of Red Men Will Share Honors
in Giving Recognition to
July 6th has been selected as
Sacajawea and order of Red Men
day at the Lewis and Clark Expo
sition. On this date the bronze
statue of Sacajawea will be ' unveil
ed with formal ceremonies. The
Sacajawea Statue Association will
share the honors of the day with
the order of Red Men in giving due
recognition to the negleted heroine, j
For this purpose" the Sacajawea
Statue Association composed of
prominent -Oregon - women, was
formed some time ago with Mrs.
Eva.Emery Dye as president. . The
association has raised the ;.' money
for the erection of the statue and
chosen the design. The statue
was executed by Miss Alice" Coop
er of Denver, Colorado, and pre
sents a young. Indian woman with
a papoose strapped to ' her back.
The girl pointing toward the dis
tant sea, her face radiant and head
thrown back and eyes full o dar
ing. A short hunting skirt, made
of deer skins, and eggins, show a
figure full of ' the buoyancy and
animation of youth. The statue is
composed of Oregon copper and
cost $7,000. - '. . .
, The entire sum necessary for the
installation of this memorial has
not yet been raised, but it is ex
pected that the total amount will
be subscribed to pay oil all indebt
edness by the time the statue is un
veiled. Western women have been
enthusiastic in lending their support
to this commendable movement.
. The statue which is the first ev
er erected in honor ot an Indian
woman, will occupy a conspicuous
position in the center of Columbia
court, the central plaza of the Ex
position, facing Lakeview Terrace,
where are the statues of Lewis and
Sacajawea was an Indian girl,
a member of the Shoshone tribe,
who joined the Lewis & Clark ex
pedition, which crossed the moun
tains to the Pacific a centuiy ago, j
while the party was in midwinter
quarters among the Mand an Indians
in what is now North Dakota" Sa
cajawea was at that time mother of
a young babe. She was the only
woman on the expedition, and
shared with the men the hardships
of theJxilsome journey across the
confinentr" She was the" friend of
Captains Clark and Lewis and gen
erally rode with them in advance
of the party, where her presence
served to allay the suspicions of
the tribes through whose .country
they passed. On two " occasions
she saved the lives of the party,
pointing the road when every one
else was lost and starvation was
staring the little band in the face.
.; Sacajawea accompanied the par
ty through its entire journeyings.
Her husband, Charbonneau, was
taken along to act as guide and in
terpreter. When' the expedition ,
on the return trip, ; reached the
country of the Mandans, Charbon
neau decided to stay . there, and his
ever faithful wife remained 1 with
him. It is presumed that she died
shortly afterwards. . ? -
It may safely be said that if it
had not been for this Indian girl.
Lewis and Clark would probably
never have reached the" Pacific.
The women of the country deserve
great credit for making it possible
for this heroine to share the honors
of the explorers at the Exposition
commemorating the expedition of
a century ago.
