Extremely low Rate for the Trip An
nual 0. A. C Eugene Games
Manager Stimson has arranged
for a special train to take the OAC
football team and friends to Eu
gene on Saturday of ne
the big annual game with
versity eleven. The nam is to
leave the C. & E. station at 8:30
or nine o'clock, will run straight
through to Eugene, and on the re
turn trip will leave Eugene about
seven o'clock, reaching Corvallis
at 8:30 or nine o'clock p. m. The
railroad companies have made the
unusually low rate of one fare for
the round trip, or $1.85 in all from
Corvallis to Eugene and return.
The round trip rate for . a similar
excursion two years ago was $2.50.
The rate on the present occasion
places the trip within reach of ev
erybody, and will well nigh convert
the day into a municipal holiday at
Corvaliis, for there are indications
that the excursion will be
record breaker. The game
has come to be one of State-wide
interest, and the enthusiasm for it
this year, here and elsewhere,
transcends all things of the kind in
Besides the special train out of
Corvallis for the game, negotiations
are pending for a special train from

Over the Boat and Into the River
Horses and Wagon A Ferry
A sensational accident happened
at the Corvallis ferry late Tuesday
afternoon. A team and a heavily
laden wagon dashed at full speed
down the grade on the west side of
the river, sped swiftly the length of
the boat, tore away the chains and
big timber that bars the boat's end,
and plunged headlong into the wat
er below. It all transpired in a
twinkling, giving but little time
for the three persons about the boat
to scramble to places of safety. The
happy fact in thei ncident is that no
other teams were aboard the boat
at the moment, or the details told
in these lines would be of far more
. The occasion of the accident was
the fact that the brake on the wag
on tailed to hold. This was fol
lowed by an effort of the team to
hold the load, when the neck yoke
gave way. On the wagon was 1,-
200 feet of lumber, five kegs of
nails, and a large quantity of hard
ware. The owner is Wesley Mill
hollen, who was hauling materials
over to his farm for building a new
When the brake broke, the
trouble was on apace. The driver
held the horses held fairly well, un
til the neck yoke broke, and the
heavy wagon smashed against them.
The impact was terrible and the
set ne that followed extremely ugly.
Down the grade the outfit passed
at great speed. Before the boat
was reached, the, driver rolled off
the wagon into a place of safety,
and escaped with only a few bruis
es. On to the boat, across it, then
off of it and into the waters of the
river went team and wagon.
The horses were saved. The
chains that bound the bar across
the east end of the boat caught in
the breast strap of one of the horses
and pulled the heads of the team,
after the outfit went over, back to
wards the boat. This enabled those
about the boat to get ropes
on the horses by wzich they were
held until the harness was cutaway.
Once freed, one of the horses struck
out and swam across to the east
side of the river. The other land
ed safely on the west bank ' at the
The wagon sank to the bottom of
the river, was subsequently fished
out and drawn across the river to
the east side where it was pulled
ashore, The lumber . in the load
happened to be bound with a chain
and it was all recovered. Two, of
the five kegs of nails were also
fished out, but most of the hard
ware is still somewhere in the bot
tom of the Willamette. The acci
dent, is one of the luckiest yet
chronicled, in that there was so
much chance ior serious conse

One Dollar Saved Represents Ten
- Dollars Kariied.
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 lor nis garden, will
save several dollars outlay later on. It is
the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. Ii costs
but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house
often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.
