Fourth of July Calm Broken by an
Alarm Small Losses.
The dwelling immediately south
of the Rosendorf homi. occupied
by Mrs. Greer and family, burned
to the ground at a late hour Tues
day afternoon.- The blaze started
from the kitchen stoAepipe and the
fire was well under way when dis
covered by members of the family.
Occupants of the house and neigh
bors hastened to remove the con
tents from the burning building,
I and nearly everything was saved
except a few minor belongings of
little value. ' Ah alarm was turned
in and the department quickly res- j
ponded, but because of lack of wat- j
er in that part of town, no help of
any moment could be rendered and.
the building was soon in ashes. . !
Just across, the fence stands an
empty house : belonging .. to Josh
Howard, aqd the flames were soon
sweeping down one end 01 that.
ExceDt for the' prompt use of the
new fire extinguisher recently pur
chased by the Corvallis fire depart
ment, this residence would also
have been destroyed. As it is,
probably $75 will cover the cost ot
damages to it.
A purse was taken up; for Mrs.
Greer, and $23.80 presented her.
This it was thought, would cover
the actual loss sustained by her.
The building burned belonged to
Mrs. Purdy. '
MET THE ENEMY.
And Nearly Back-tracked A Corval
lis Man's Adventure.
Talk of the awfulness of Japan
ese attacks if you will but they are
not a comparison to what con
fronted a Corvallis man while up
near Bellfountain, Wednesday.
He was a-wheel, and as he neared
an old swamp of considerable size,
he noticed in the road ahead a band
of what he thought were pigs.
Drawing nearer, he discovered to
his horror that they were skunks,
and there were 13 of them. There
was deep underbiush on either side
of the road, 13 skunks in the mid
dle of the road, and the shades of
evening falling fast. The man did
some lively thinking and then let a
yell, but alas! Instead of taking
to their heelsfthe 13" black kittens
showed fight and came' on, stiff -legged
and threatening. The man
a-wheel yelled again, and yet again
but on came the band. Finally, a
happy thought struck him, and
clapping his hands he yelled, "sick
'em" at the top of hisvoice. That
settled it. The skunks turned tail,
and fled to the brush, and without
stopping to look back or get a full
breath, the wheelman pulled into
Corvallis about nine o'clock, thank
ful to find that he was still in "good
odor" in society.
Death of William L. Vale.
William L. Vale died at his home
at Pedee, 3rd. He was born in
Kansas City, Missouri, February
8th, 1847, being 58 years 5 months

Harbor. Wash.; Mrs. Frank Miller,
He was married to Miss Mary
Hooker, April 24th, 1887. To
them were born two children,
Thomas and Charles Vale.
His disease was dropsy. The
funeral occurred ai 2 p. m. Tues
day, and the interment was in the
Pedee cemetery. He selected a
text to be used at the funeral serv
ices, Isah. 38: r,-"Set thine house
in order: for thou shall die and not
live." At the deceased's request,
the funeral service was conducted
by Rev. S. M. Wood of Corvallis.

One Dollar Saved Represents -Ten
The average man does not save to exceed
ten per cent, of his earnings. He must spend
nine dollars in living expenses for every
dollar saved. That being, the case he can
not be too careful about unnecessary ex
penses. Very often a few cents properly in
vested, like buying seeds for his garden, will
save several dollars outlay later on. It is
the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It costs
but afew cents, and a bottle ofit in the house
often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.

NEARLY THREE TO ONE,
Corvallis Voted Heavily in Favor of
Bond Issue for Mountain
In Thursday's water . bond elec
tion, the bond issue of $75,000 .for
a municipal water plant wa carried
by a vote of " nearly three to one.
The figures are, for bonds, 278;
against bonds,- 106. The total
number of votes cast was 384, or
about 30 votes less than in the reg
ular city election in June.
. The majority in favor of bonds
is somewhat heavier than the
friends of mountain water expect
ed, though a vote "of two to one was
freely predicted by them when the
polls opened. A poll of the town
made up the day before showed
tnat mountain water bad a sure
majority with as many doubtful as
sure votes against bonds,, and a
chance for many of the doubtful
to be captured for mountain water.
This not only happened, but great
inroads were made in . trie rants of
those counted on by the opposition
as certain. It is said . that their
poll showed 151 votes against
mountain water. - .
It is certain now that if there
had been a week or ten more days
allowed the voters in which to be
come familiar with the subject that
the opposition would haver been
reduced to less perhaps than 50
votes. The testimony on all sides
is that the anonymous sheet issued
by the opposition was an actual
detriment to the cause it professed
to serve. The fact that the men
behind it would not allow their
names to be - connected with the
sheet and that they required their
printer to observe such secrecy,,
was the first influence to discredit
the thing. Greater even than this
fatal error was the style of warfare
that the thing resorted to. It in
dulged solely in personalities and
an attempt to play on the fears of
the ignorant and timid, of whom
apparently there are not many in
this town, at least of the sort the
' lyUbricator thought there was.
The double dose of error in connec
tion with the thing led to deser
tions that ran the vote for moun
tain water up considerably higher
than its most sanguine friends ex
pected. A week more of time for
voters to have gotten their bearings
would undoubtedly have split the
opposition in twain and have given
bonds a majority of more than six
In the brief campaign preced
ing the election, there was not time
for all things connected with the
enterprise to be fully explained
For three months prior to that time
the opponents, secret and other
wise, of mountain water, had been
conducting a personal : propaganda.
Many things have been circulated
that were not true. Many honest
men, indeed, it is probable that
most all connected with the. matter
on both sides were honest, got im
pressions that were not correct
for the removal of which time . and
trouble was required.
-The election was a queit one.'
There was a good crowd on the
stree early in the morning, and an
other to iiear the result in the even
ing, out during the day there was
but little activity. The polling place
was the City Hall, and a there all
day workers were congregated. The
strikers for mountain water were
the more numerous, and to their
energy and toil is due much credit
for the result. Several disputes
occurred but in each instance those
engaged in them were good temper
ed and the outcome always good
humored even though loud words
were occasionally let slip.
The anti-water people talked
about a "perpethal" commission,
about wood pipe and urged that the
enterprise wouldn t pay. One an
ti-water man said the richer mem
bers of the water1 committee" might
take a lot of bonds themselves and
a water man in reply asked - if he
thought they would-- pay for the
bonds they took in wooden money.
Then the first man said the -other
one was talking nonsense. Then
the other man said the same thing
about the first speaker,, and so'; it
went. One Job's additioner ' stood
stoutly against bonds until he found
from the survey that ,'; a fire plug
was located at the corner ,of his
block, and then with a broad smile
on his face he went ' unanimous
for bonds. 1
