By Runaway Team Fatal Accident at
Clyde Tharp,- a young Benton
farmer, residing a mile north of
Bellfountain, was thrown, from his
wagon and almost' instantly killed
yesterday forenoon. With others
he was working on the road in the
vicinity, and had occasion to drive
his team down a steep hill over
which the road passes near the Pern
Starr place. It is understood that
there was no breeching to the har
ness worn by his team, and it is
supposed that the brake failed to
hold, and the wagon ran onto the
horses. At any rate, while the
horses were in full flight, the wag
on upset at the bottom of the hill
aud the driver was thrown violent
ly to the ground. The wagon was
torn to pieces. When friends reach
ed Mr. Tharp he was still alive,
but he only survived a few min
utes. Death was caused by injur
ies in the head.
The funeral occurs at three
o'clock tomorrow. The deceased
was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Al
Tharp. A few years ago, he was
married to Martha Hickson, who
with a child, survives.

LOOK Before You Buy
To the Public:
. 1 It has been falsely reported by
interested parties that, when I have
been unable to make a sale, I have
been in the habit of running home
seekers out of the country. I de
sire to say that all such reports are
unqualifiedly false 'and without
foundation. I have lived in Ben
ton county through a period of
more than 30 years, and. have done
an humble part in aiding to upbuild
it. I am not the man to seek to
tear down the community that I
have made my home through so
many years. The statement that I
ran Mr. Brandt out of the country
is its own denial as a few weeks
will prove. I sold him a farm with
in a few miles of Corvallis, and as
soon as he can close up his inter
ests in Iowa he will be out with his
family to occupy it.
