GAVE A CONCERT.
In College Chapel Many People
tended-Miss Nash and Mrs.
Miss Dorothea Nash pianiste, as
sisted by" Mrs. Anna Selkirk Nor
ton, contralto, both of Portland,
gave a piano recital in College
chapel Friday evening. Miss Nash
who was a popular teacher in Cor
vallis several years ago, was cor
dially greeted by a large audience
which contained many of her
friends. Mrs. Norton too, was no
stranger to Corvallis concert goers
and shared the hearty reception
that was given to Miss Nash. The
latter again proved herself an ac
complished musician, and though
all of her numbers were well ex
ecuted, Mozkowski's Sparks de
serves special praise. Her playing
was liberally applauded and tho
roughly enjoyed by all.
Mrs. Norton is not only gifted
with a fine contralto voice, but pos
seses artistic sentiment, and sings
with a true musical interpretation.
She sang with excellent accent, se
lections in Italian, German and
French, besides a number of En
glish songs and by request sang
Nevin's "Oh, that we two were
Maying"' as an encore. Prof.
Taillandier was the accompanist,
and he won the universal thanks of
the audience, not only for his ex
cellent playing but because he set
an example to many another Cor
vallis accompanist by giving the
singer opportunity to be heard.
Guessed at Pullman Score.
They guessed in Prof. Horner's
Toom the day before the Pullman
game as to the outcome, the best
guesser to have a prize of a dollar
in cash. The winner whose name
is not known, made a guess of 32
to o in favor of OAC. He predict
ed that OAC would have the kick-t-ff
and that the Oregon men would
quickly take the ball away from the
Washingtonians and make a touch
down. Another guess was 28 to
6, and the next closest was 24 to
o. About 50 guesses in all were
The 24 to o guess was made by
E. W. Wallace and ran thus:
"The score of 24 to o in favor of
OAC. One of the Pullman boys
hurt in first half, two In last half;
Pullman boys very homesick ard
want tq see Mamma,,"
AT REST NOW.
Peaceful Passing of Mrs. E.
ward The Funeral.
After an illness that lasted over
three months, the death of Mrs.
Cornelia Woodward, wife of ex
County Judge Woodward, occurred
at the family home in this city at
10:30 o'clock Saturday morning.
The end had been daily expected
for sometime, and therefore occas
ioned no surprise, but only the
deepest regret among local residents
Mrs. Woodward in girlhood was
Miss Cornelia Allen. She was
born near Philomath May 21st,
1 85 1, and received her education in
the Philomath schools. She was
married to E.. Woodward in 1869,
and 34 years of that married life
has been spent by Mr. and Mrs.
Woodward In Corvallis. The chil
dren of the union are Don. and
Mrs. Woodword was an untiring
Christian worker whose faith and
zeal never faltered. She was also
an active member of the W. C. T.
U. in which she will be greatly
The funeral occurred at ro o'clock
Monday morning from the United
Evangelical church of which the
deceased was a member. The
services were conducted by , Rev
C. T. Hurd. The regular choir
rendered several selections, and
Mrs. Woodward's Sunday school
class sang, "There'll be no Dark
Valley." Rev. Bush read the
scripture lesson, and Rev. Noble
There was an abundance of
beautitul flowers ana a large au
dience of sorrowing friends, neigh
bors and acquaintances. Interment
was in Newton cemetery, near
LEADS TO ANARCHY.
At Corvallis, Forest Grove
and other places where at
tempts are being made to sell
liquor in defiance of law and
public opinion, it will be found
that such a course only serves
to strengthen the anti-saloon
forces and increase their de
termination to win. The lo
cal option law is now the law
of the state and - should be
obeyed. The man who open
ly defies the law is walking
the high road that leads to
SENTENCES FOE MIKE.
And bis Flunkies Juror was Member
of Club Say ao More Liquor
at Mike's now.
Full extent of the law, is the
sentence imposed this morning by
Justice Holgate upon Mike Kline,
Hooligan and Miline as a result of
the last two local option trials.
Kline's sentence in the two cases
is $1,000 and 60 days in jail, rais
ing his total sentences to $2,000
and 80 days of jail sentence. Hool
igan was a defendant in both cases,
and got $1,000 and 60 days in jail;
raising his total sentences to
$1,700 fines and sixty days in jail;
Miline was a defendant in but one
of the cases, and got $500 and 30
days, raising his total to $800 fine
and 30 days. The total amount
of the fines against the three is
The fifth case against Kline and
his satellites was concluded in Jus
tice Holgate's court Friday even
ing. - It consumed less time than
any of its predecessors, beginning
at five o'clock one . afternoon and
ending about the same hour the
following day. Its j ury also con
sumed less time than any former
jury in arriving at a verdict, mak
ing a record of only a few minutes,
and like the others, taking but a
single ballot. One juror said the
thing might as well have been done
without leaving the jury box,
which is, of course, admissable in
any court. The jurors were: E.
McLennan, G, B. Whitney, B. B.
Arnold, E. C. Montgomery, J. R.
Cockrell, C. D. Abbott.
The testimony as in the former
cases, showed Mike Kline to be the
main man if not the sole proprietor
of the joint, with Miline and Hool
igan as his flunkies. It showed
that the liquors bring saloon prices
and that therefore, paying as he
does, no license, Mike's profit must
be substantial, for, according to all
accounts, business was lively, at
least until withdrawals from the
concern when it became apparent
that the members might become
involved in unpleasant consequen
ces: It has developed that in the
fourth trial, one member of the
jury is, or at least at one time was
a member of Mike's flock. Nobody
knows which one, but half a dozen
ex-members testify to the fact, and
everybody believes it. The fact1
that a member of his own band sits
on a jury and joins in a verdict of
condemnation is accounted as one
of the hardest things that has yet
hit the joint.
It is given out now that Mike
his quit the liquor business and is
engaged exclusively in athletics
and "moral welfare." When he
started his concern, Mike announ
ced, and a lot of people believed
it, that he had consulted Portland
lawyers, that he could dispense
liquors under his scheme, and that
no local option law could molest
him. District' Attorney Bryson
warned him and all others to the
contrary, but the warning was not
heeded. Prosecutions were begun,
District Attorney Bryson, all the
time holding open to Kline and his
satellites an agreement that if the
latter would go out of business he
would bring no more cases. This
generous offer was refused, and
now Kline is under sentence to pay
2,000 in fines and serve 80 days in
jail, while his flunkies have each a
proportionate measure of trouble.
At the end of it all, comes the res
ignation of the barkeeper, Miline,
and the announcement that liquor
is not to be handled on the prem
ises. It all looks as if clubs like
Mike's are not what they are crack
ed up to be. It looks also, like ex
President Geer is the smartest one
of all the officers. He saw his
chance and fled the state, where
fines and jail sentences cannot over
take him. His relatives are smart
people and in touch with good law
yers which is, perhaps, why he
didn't stay to face the music,

THEY ARE EIGHT.
And About Destitute Twenty Five
Dollars their All Asking County Aid.
A family of eight without a home
and with $25 in cash as the total of
their worldly wealth are in Corval
lis today, Four children, one of
which has a broken back, three
women and a man of perhaps 60
winters make up this unfortunate
group of people. They are headed
for a place six miles from Monta
gue, California, where the husband
claims he has a friend who wants
to rent him a farm. They wereen
route there by team, and when they
reached Corvallis Monday, they
sold the team and wagon for $25,
and are now hoping to arrange with
the county court for assistance to
help them along their way. The
name is Turpin, and they have
lived for a time 03 the Rainwater
place near Albany. .
The tickets by railroad will cost
$60. They have some bedding
and wearing apparel, but beyond
this their $25 is their all. The
grandmother in the family recently
had her foot mashed, and is pract
ically an invalid.
In hop picking time, they pick
ed in a Marion county yard. When
picking was about over, their tent
caught on fire and burned up their
tickets. The yard owner, they say
only gave them half what was due
them, but being without tickets
they had to take what he was wil
ling to give.
"I don't like to go there and at
tempt to run a place without a team
to say nothirjg of arriving there
without a cent, said one of the
women yesterday. "I think it
would be bettpr for us to try to
make our way in Corvallis this
winter, and go there in the spring,
don't you think so?"
WAS SENT FORTH.
Goforthwas and that was why
went Forth- -Booze Brought
Mr. Goforth has gone forth. He
alighted from the train and put up
at a Corvallis hostelry Friday. It
soon developed that he hailed from
Washington and that he was the
victim of a financial stringency.
He claimed that he had been rob
bed in Portland, but there was all
kinds of signs that tarantular juice
had more to do with his panic than
did robbers. When he applied to
the county court for assistance, the
address of his brother up in Wash
ington was obtained. ..Then it de
veloped that Goforth had also been
struck with panic in Salem, where
his brother had sent him funds
with which to buy a ticket home.
That money went, it is supposed,
like the other, for booze, and Mr.
Goforth was again penniless and
penitent in a strange land.
Yesterday, Goforth was put
aboard the train by Sheriff Burnett
and a ticket, provided on the auth
ority of the brother, was given the
conductor. If be doesn t fare well
on his journey it w5ll be no fault of
local authorities who did more than
their duty by Goforth before he
went forth. '
Alma Hearn a Prime Favorite.
One of the bright new plays of
the season, ' H onest Heart s" is
drawing crowded houses at the Em
pire theatre this week, with the
well known comedienne, Almi
Hearn in the role of "Dad's only
girl" Marty, the Kentucky wild
flower who is the heroine of the
story. Miss Hearn has made a
very careful study of the character,
and while it is difficult, it is so
nicely fitted to her personality that
she should capture her audience
more completely than ever. The
author has brightened the romance
with a great deal of comedy and
Messrs Klimt and Bazzalo have sup
plied some of their customary rich
ness of scenery, There is melo
drama in the piledriver scene, but
the play is free from cheap sen
sationalism. Oregonian, Oct. 1 7th.

actress and her capable company

sonality has captivated thousands

new pastoral comedy. "Honest
Hearts" which is to be here Friday
night, the 27th. Her part amount

As Dad's only girl, the daughter of
an old Kentucky farmer, she grows
wild and graceful as a deer to a
young woman, when her beauty
wins the heart of a young gentle
man in the government employ on
a Cumberland river dock. Their
love tor each other is no sooner
expressed than treachery appears
a jealous woman. The river and
farm scenes are picturesque and the
company of exceptional merit.

One .Dollar Sava 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 Eemedy. It costs
but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house
often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.
