place in these parts in recent years.
The play was Such th?t the onlook
er had but little . cc iception one
minute as to what mil iculous thing
might happen next. Salem had
the ball on Eugene's 2s yard line
and seemed in the act of raking in a
touchdown, when Radir fumbled
and Eugene converted her own de
feat into victory by an eighty yard
run for a touchdown and goal, all
in the very last second of the half.
In the second period. Willamette
punched and bumped the Eugene
line Dacn 65 long yards for a touch
down and goal, tying the score, on
ly to lose the game on a v 55 yard
run ana a touchdown, but two
minutes before the game ended.

Crowd on Next Saturday's Excursion
Expected to Smask all Records.
In the language of the poet, Cor
vallis will be a deserted village
next Saturday. The day will not
be a national or even a legal holi
day, but it might as well be as far
as business is concerned. All the
establishments will be open and
there will be clerks and bosses to
operate them, but unless all signs
fail, there will be little for them to
Most people are going to Eugene
that day. It is the day for the an
nual football game between OAC
and U. of O., and everybody is
planning to see the game. An ex
cursion train is to leave the C, &
E. station in time to reach Eugene
at 1 1 or 1 1 30, returning to Corval
lis shortly after the game A spe
cial train from Independence, Dal
las and Monmouth will make con
nection, bringing people from these
towns to Corvallis Saturday morn
ing in time to go on -the Corvallis
special, taking them back in the
evening, after the arrival of the
Corvallis train from Eugene. Tick
ets for the Corvallis special are be
ing sold now; and aie in great de
mand. People are said to be com
ing in trom all , parts ot the county
to make the trip.
The game promises to be the
greatest football battle in the his
tory of Oregon. Eugene has the
strongest team in her history, and
the same is true of OAC. Eugene
played Berkeley a scoreless game
and Berkeley beat OAC 10 to o.
On the other hand, Willamette
beat Pullman r 1 to 6: Eugene beat
Willamette 11 to 6, and OAC beat
Pullman 28 to o. In comparative
scores, there is nothing for either
team to draw on as a sign of super
ior strength, The expectation that
the battle will be very evenly bal
anced, seems more popular in Cor
vallis than elsewhere. It is . said
that in Philomath, most ot the
sports are back of Eugene. Down
in Albany, there is said to be
prevalent opinion that the Univer
sity eleven is the stronger. In Sa
lem. where they reason that Berke
ley beat OAC 10 to o, and couldn'
beat Eugene, there is a lot of be
lief that the University men will be
winners, In the State University
town itself, there is said to be con
fidence, such as was never felt be
fore, Indeed Eugene has a lot of
backers in the very heart of Cor-1
vallis, the home of the OAC eleven.
Over at Brownsville, there is said
to be general confidence that the
University will win, while at Inde
pendence and Monmouth, the sen
timent as to the outcome breaks
In the rival camps, every prepar
ation is on for the battle. All the
resources that of each com
mander of these rival teams can
bring to his assistance arebeing hur
ried to the ' battle line. Every re
serve asset in men and -equipment
is being prepared for use whenever
there shall be an emergency
call. In the U. of O. camp, the
men are nursing bruises sustained
in last Saturday's battle with Wil
lamette, while they rest in a meas
ure at lighter practice work than is
usual. Every man in the squad is
known to be rounding into excel
lent condition for the game.
Over Steckle's quarters, there is
a veil of mystery that the most
trusted supporters cannot penetrate
There are rumors on the outside of
a slightly different ljneup from any
yet seen in the Tiger eleven. These
supporters, so great is the secrecy,
have even to guess at the question
of whether or not all of the squad
will be on hand for the kickoff. The
bullet wound in Laurence's leg is
healing, but there are those who
wonder if it might not become ir
ritated and painful when the big
tackle returns to practice,. The
censorship maintained over move
ments of the team is approved
by reason of the fact that it is
supposed to be a measure designed
to aid in securing victory.
A year ago at this time, three
strong men of the OAC lineup were
out of commission. Those who
look at the bare walls of the high
board fene around the athletic
grounds are persuaded that no such
condition hangs over the team this
year, and that, all in all, Saturday's
excursion will be an inviting oc
casion with a big game to boot,
in which OAC, if beaten, won't be
very deep in the slough of disgrace.

One Dollar Saved Represents Ten
The average man does not save to exceed
ten per cent, of his earnings. He must spend
nine dollars in living expenses lor 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 Remedy. It coutB
but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house
often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.
