that Professor C. H. Chapman, an

-The number of students regis
tered at the college up to three
a'clock yesterday afternoon was 576
against 522 on the same day last
yerr, or an increase of 54. The
figures now lack only 24 of 600,
and probably place O. A. C. in the
lead of all the institutions
in the Northwest in point of atten
dance. The number is much more
than twice as large as the enroll
ment at Eugene, and is . only ap
proached by some of the Washing
ton institutions, probably Pullman
It looks now very much tts if the
total enrollment would go to 800
this year. In two years more at
the present rate of growth the 1,000
mark should be passed.

CAME TO WED.
The funeral of the late Charles
M. Smith occurred from the family
home at 10 o'clock yesterday morn- j
ing, and was largely attended.
Death occurred as a result of a
second stroke of apoplexy, the facts
of which were told in Wednesday's
Times. The interment was in Odd
Fellows cemetery. The deceased
was 48 years and six months of age
and was an estimable citizen who
resided long in this vicinity. The
survivors are the widow, who is a
sister ot Mrs. eorge Lilly, a mar
ried daughter, and five sons.

big gash in the back of his hand,
a young man walked into the office
of a local physican Thursday after
noon.. He was Barclay Campbell,
employed at the Taylor hopyard
He was splitting wood, wielding
the axe with one hand and holding
the sti;k with the other. The
blade ot the axe descended slant
wise across the back of the left
hand, burying its edge deeply in
some of the bones and severing
tendons. Large loss of blood re
sulted, but the lad was game and
after the wound was dressed he was
about the streets without complaint.
Tom Ross, though far away,
still remembers the O. A. C.
Multnomah football game last
Christmas. He is a member of the
squad at Columbia University, New
York and writes discouragingly of
the prospect. He says: "The Co
lumbia team is rotten this year.
All little men. - They have a squad
of some 30, but no big fellows and
a poor line. I wish Jordan was
here to show them how to run the
end, and Stockton could beat them
to death at quarter. t That Corval
lis team would have no trouble
beating them. "
Eugene Guard: It took t
Corvallis jury but 15 minutes to
return a verdict of guilty against
the "social club" of that . city for
selling liquor where the local option
law is in force. After the city of
Corvallis was voted dry, because of
the excellent schools there, a few
old "sports" who had always defi
ed the laws before thought they
would organize a "social club" and
continue to dispense "booze" re

Bat Went Back Single A Woman,
her Baggage, and her Son, bat
The gyrations and screams of a
frantic woman at the railroad sta
tion the other- day paralyzed the na
tives in that vicinity. She and her
young son were bound East. He
was on the train while she and her
baggage were not,- and the train
was pulling out. Some women un
der the circumstances would not
have been able to stop the train,
but she did it. Whether tne war
whoops she let out sent shivers up
the back of the locomotive or caus;
ed.the engineer to leap from his
cab, or whether they merely elect
rified the conductor, the fact is that
the train, stopped and stayed stop
ped till she and her baggage were
reunited with her son.
The lady came to Corvallis about
a month ago, and during tne in
terim was housekeeper for R. L
Taylor. She told a number of. peo
ple that she came out to be a bride
at a correspondence wedding. It
did not develop so, however, and
the story is that since her departure
the proposed groom is reported to
have said that he is "durned glad
she's gone." ;
