Another new case of typhoid
fever is reported, making 10 or a
dozen instances of the disease with
in the past few weeks, or far more
than was ever known before in the
same length of time. The patient
is Miss McGinnis, elder daughter of
ex-Sheriff McGinnis of one of the
Eastern Oregon counties, who re
sides in the Ben Woldt house. The
case is more severe than many of
those that have recently been prev
alent. For the present, at least,
the use of boiled water in Corvallis
homes ought not to be overlooked.'

They had a cougar on exhi
bition at Philomath yesterday fore
noon. It was killed by Charles
Franklin Sunday. It was started
on the Allen place, and after it had
been followed two miles by Frank

mal took to a tree, where a single
shot from the pursuer's rifle brought
it to the ground.
With the sawmill launch,
James Berry was toning a raft of
hardwood logs down the Willamette
from Peoria, Saturday. As he ap
proached the boom, the propeller
fouled in some way and a blade
was broken with the effect that the
raft became unmanageable. In
spite ot every effort the logs were
carried by the swift current past
the boom and down the river,
whence they are not likely to be re
covered. The loss is $50.
Typhoid fever is epidemic in Eu
gene. Concerning the matter the
Eugene Guard says: The Guard
is informed that at present there are
15 cases of typhoid fever iu the city
and in the majority of cases city
water is used. The physicians are
uncertain as to the cause of the
epidemic but are doing all in their
power to check it." Garms of the
disease are very likely to find their
way into the Willamette through
the Eugene sewage system. These
germs will be just as lively and just
as much of a menace when they
have floated down to Salem or Port
land as when they leave the body
of the patient at Eugene. The mat
ter is mentioned here as a sugges
tion for impressing upon all the
importance of using boiled water
for the present.
And a Ducking An Alsea man and
his Canvas Boat He Bought it
An Alsea man sent to a Chicago
department store for a canvas row
boat that was advertised in the
firm's catalogue as a daisy. The
cost was $35, and of course he had
to send the cash in advance. In
due time the boat arrived, and start
ing from the store, the owner un
dertook to navigate the Alsea river.
It was all very great fun for the
bystanders, though anything but
funny for the captain of the new
boat. The story is that it floated
less than a minute, though the
statement is perhaps exaggerated.
It is certain however, that even be
fore the inmate had time to think
of getting ashore, his new boat fill
ed with water and went to the
bottom, where it still remains. The
captain of the craft managed to
reach dry land, where he has since
had time to reflect on the inadvisa-
bility of buying goods on mail or
ders from big Eastern department
stores. It cost him $35 cash and a
ducking in Alsea river to learn that
it is better to deal with the old re
liable home merchant, who never

In Improvements New Planers, new
Boilers and new Siding.
A new planer arrived Saturday
trom the East for the Strong saw
mill, and workmen are now engag
ed in putting it in place. It is
housed in a newly completed addi
tion to the mill 32 x 40 feet, locat
ed on the north side of the building.
As soon as the planer is installed
the work of putting in the new
boilers whi:h arrived two weeks
ago, will begin. These and other
improvements to the mill plant will
cost $5,000, and will, incidentally
increase the capacity about 50 per
Logs from the vicinity of Blod
gett, are arriving in shipments of

stalled, there is to be an exteasion
of the siding on Water street, to
the mill, for better convenience in
shipping logs and lumber.

John Goldson Killed Has
Brother and Other Rela
tives in Corvallis. j
In a fight with a cougar, John
Goldson, a cousin of Henry Worth-
am, of this city, was accidentally
killed Sunday. The accident took
place in the woods near the well
known Goldson saw mill, seventeen
miles southwest of Monroe, and on
the road leading to Lake Creek
William Goldson, a brother of the
unfortunate victim, who has been
at worK at tne carpenter trade in
Corvallis for several months past,
left Sunday night for the scene,
and was followed yesterday by his
wife. On account of illness, Henry
Wortham was unable to go.
A bullet from his own gun killed
Goldson. The story of the accid
ent was secured by the Times cor
respondent at Monroe, and from
one who was a member of the
hunting party, and one of the first
to Goldson's side after the shooting.
The account runs thus: With four
others. Goldson was out after coug
ars. They had already killed two,
when the dogs started another.
Goldson followed it, being a con
siderable distance ahead of the oth
er members of the party. He sud
denly came upon the cougar,
which had taken refuge in a tree
from the dogs. Goldson stood on
a huge log, and from that vantage
point fired twice at the animal far
up in the branches of the tree.
Both shots took effect, as was af
terward discovered, the second
bringing the cougar to the ground.
Goldson, apparently started to run
along the log, but as guessed by j
footmarks on the slippery tree
trunk, seemed to have slipped and
slid for some distance, falling at
length from the log. His grasp on
the gun must have been relinquish
ed as he fell. As it fall, the weapon
was apparently discharged. The
ball entered Goldson's shoulder
two inches from the point, and
ranging " downward perforated
both lungs.
His comrades heard the two
shots first, and then the third shot.
After the latter, they heard Gold-
son shout. , They hurried to the
scene and found first the cougar in
the tree, which they shot. Then
they discovered Goldson lying near
the log in the agonies of death
He' lived but a minute after they
reached his side. Blood from the
wounds in his lungs, poured from
his mouth when they moved him
His gun was six feet away. It was
a Winchester, and the . lever was
thrown forward as far as it weuld
go, a cartridge being ready to en
ter the barrel. , Bark from limbs of
hazel brush on the sights of the
gun and marks on the brush bv the
side of the log are further evidence
tnat Goldson slid along the log be
fore he finally fell and probably be-
tore he received his death wound.
Goldson was 38 years of age,
and had a wife and one child. He
is a nephew of James L. Lewis of
this city.

And Confiscated "Club's" wet
Goods Drouth There now
but Lights Still Shine.
For the past 24 hours, there has
been a drouth at "the club." A
raid by the authorities at noon yes
terday stripped the place of all its
wetness What makes the case
more interesting is the unusual fact
that the county jail, that whilom
place of preeminent sobriety has
become a storage room for barrels
and kegs of booze. The stimulants
were confiscated by the authorities
under the law of search warrants
which provides that when goods
are used as a means of committing
or concealing, violations of law, or
words to that effect, they may be
taken in charge by the officers.
The confiscated effects include
two kegs of beer, a keg of whiskey
and nine empty beer kegs. After
confiscation, they were put on
truck and carted over to the coun
ty jail, and stored there, behind
doors that "the club" keys wont

Burnett, District Attorney Bryson,

A cupboard contained glasses and
