E. R Brysoa Named for Gty Attor
ney J. F. Yates for Police Judget
J. F. Yates is police judge of the
city of Corvallis, and E. R. Bryson
is city attorney. The resignation
of E. P. Greffoz as police judge
was read at a meeting of the coun
cil Monday evening and Mr. Yates
was named for the vacancy. Mr.
Yate' appointment made a vacan
cy in the city attorneyship, and E.
R. Bryson was named for that po
sition. The resignation of Mr. Greffoz
was received in a letter that came
to Councilman Avery after the for
mer's departure from Corvallis.
Connected with the resignation is
the action of the council Monday
night in giving the finance commit
tee authority to employ a man to
expert the books of the police
judge and city treasurer. The
committee, in a report stated that
the books of Mr. Greffoz had been
under investigation for several
days, but that little progress had
been made on account of the man
ner in which they had been kept.
Further time was asked for, as well
as authority to employ an expert.
Councilman Lilly spoke in favor of
adopting the report and stated in
the progress of his remarks that
there is a small shortage in the ac
counts of the police judge, but that
relatives stand ready to make it
good as soon as the amount can be
ascertained. Those in position to
know, assert that the shortage is
but a few hundred, and that friends
of Mr. Greffoz would have been
quick to make it up if he had made
it known to them. Prevailing
opinion is that Mr. Greffoz brooded
over his financial troubles until he
has got to a point mentally where
he is not responsib'e for his act
ions. Nothing is known of his
One Dollar Saved Represents Ten
The ayerags man does not save to esceed
ten per cent, of his earnings. He must spend
nine dollars in living expenses for every
uouar saved, lhat being the case he can
not be too careful about unnecessary ex
penses. Very often a few cents proper! v 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 Eemedy. It costs
out a lew cents, and a bottle ot it in the house
olten saves a doctor s bill of several dollars.

In this city at six o'clock last
Thursday evening, little Billy In
vestigator, aged 13 days, eight
hours 20 minutes. The child took
sick shortly after the polls opened
Thursday, and grew worse and
worse as the day wore on. Towards
evening his mind wandered and he
called constantly for his parents,
Mr. and Mrs. Investigator, who in
response to the child's dying request
arrived in the sick chamber shortly
before- the end . came. As they
stood there, each holding one. of
little Billy's hands, the child beg
ged them to forgive Dr. Punderson
and to acknowledge their little son
before the world, but they stolidly
refused, Finally just as the town
clock was striking the hour of six,
a great wave ot mountain water
struck little Billy in the face, and
he was no more.
He was buried on the banks of
the Willamette, whose water he
loved so well. At the head of his
grave, so that his last resting place
should never be forgotten, they
placed a piece of wood pipe from
the Astoria water works on which
was the following: "Here lies
little Billy Investigator, son of Mr.
and Mrs Investigator, who gave
the world a child they would not
own. He was born June 24, 1905;
died July 6, 1905. , Little Billy was
an industrious child but he bit on
more than he could chaw."
Emerson on Lincoln.
The president impressed me more
favorably than I had hoped. A frank,
sincere, well meaning man, with a law
yer's habit of mind, good, clear state
ment of his fact, correct enough, not
vulgar, as described, but with a sort of
boyish cheerfulness, or that kind of
sincerity and jolly good meaning that
our class meetings on commencement
days show' in' telling our old stories
over. When he has made his remark
he looks up at you with great satisfac
tion and shows all his white teeth and
laughs. He argued to Sumner the
whole, case of Gordon, the slave
trader, point by point, and added that
he was not quite satisfied yet, and
meant to refresh his memory by look
ing again at the evidence. All this
showed a fidelity and conscientiousness
very honorable to him. When I was
Introduced to him he said, "Oh, Mr.
Emerson, I once heard you say in a
lecture that a Kentuckian seems to
say by his air and manners, 'Here am
I; if you don't like me, the worse for
you.'" Diary of R. w. Emerson in
In Old Stagecoach Days.
There used to be rate wars in tie
old stagecoach days in England. At
one time, early last century, one stage
coach company not only cut the price
from Lewes to London to a very low
rate, but gave also other inducements.
As the coach started from Lewes at
a somewhat uncomfortably early hour
In the morning, by way of tiding over
the difficulty the proprietors allowed
the more slothful of their passengers
to go overnight, to Brighton, where
they were accommodated with good
beds free cf expense and could proceed
comfortably to. London by tj com
pany's morning coach.
