Walter Kline is confined at
home with an attack of measles.
Some months ago he recovered
from a severe attack of the same
disease, which was his second
wrestle with the malady, the first
having occurred in childhood. The
present attack is very light. The
partiality of measles for the young
man borders on the remarkable.
At Harrisburg Wednesday,
George J. Wilhelm a nephew of
the well known Wilhelm family of
Monroe, was united in marriage to
Miss Cecil Rampy, Rev. Father
Lane of Albany officiating. The

helm flouring mills at Junction,
and the bride is a popular young
lady of Harrisburg.
The big English shire stallion
that has been on exhibition at Ab
bott's feed barn has become a fix
ture in the county.. He has
purchased by a company composed
of the following persons:, W. A.1
McGillis, president and treasurer;
C. D. Abbott, secretary: W. C.
Belknap, manager; L. F. Gray and
B P. Cator. The animal is said to
be the best af his breed within a
radius of 40 miles. He is a dapple
bay, 17 1-4 hands high and his
weight is 2,150. He has been a
prize winner at all shows at which
he has been exhibited.
Sam Dolan, the well known
student and athlete, is to go East.
He applied for and has received an
honorable dismissal from his class
es Wednesday morning, and is to
leave Albany today for .Notre
Dame University to complete his
course in civil engineering. The
loss of Dolan is a heavy blow . to
OAC's football prospects next year,
as he is probably the best tackle in
the Northwest if not on the Coast.
He was also a faithful and pains
taking student and widely popular
in the student body.
The residence and barn which

Brothers.- The residence was built
in the early 50' s by Charles Oay
lord. These lts are being clear
ed preparatory to the erection of a
fine residencs by S. It. Kline.

On exhibition at H. E. Hodes'
gun store is an elegant cougar skin
brought in this morning by John
May of the Buck Creek settlement.
The animal from which the skin
was taken, was killed by Mr. May
a month ago with a 38-caliber re
volver. It required eight .shots
from the pisrol to kill the cougar.
When several shots had been fired
int the animal he descended from
the tree in which he was discover
ed. Mr. May expected to have a
desperate fight with the wounded
animal, but the energy with which
the hunter's dog attacked the cou
gar caused it to seek safety in an
other tree. The skin measures
eight feet in length. It is on sale,

For Indoor Track
The OAC track team leaves in
the morning to- take part in the
Columbia University indoor track
meet tomorrow afternoon. They
are accompanied by Physical' Di
rector Trine, who is nor vety con
fident of the success th t has at
tended the efforts of hi men at the
Columbia meet during he past two
years. Many of his a r athletes
are not yet in proper condition,
notably Greenhaw, w 0 has had a
severe cold which has t tarded him
much in rounding intc form. It is
however believed that he will on
account of his know superiority
in those events, with air luck in
securing a position in the start, be
able to take the quai er and half
mile. Davolt, who h s shown un
usual form is badly h ndicapped on
account of a fall wh h injured his
side so that he will ba veto be much
bandaged in order to make the halt
and mile run. . Beach, one of the
sprinters is in the poorest kind of
shape on account of a muscle strain
sustained a day or two ago. These
disadvantages together with the
fact that some of the best men in
the jumps and weights are not in
school this year leaves the pros
pect more or less clouded for OAC.
Smithson is the only man who is
in first rate condition.

Mayor Ctrvallis, Corvallis:
Bo vernor. Pardee of California,
wires me that people are in great
been j need of immediate supplies. Threat
ened famine. What can be done
should be don quickly. Please
organize to assist in alleviating suf
ferings of our neighbors.

Governor of Oregon.
The S. P. Co. will transfer all
provisions and supplies for. the
stricken people of San Francisco,
free of charge when authorized by
R. B. Miller, general freight agent,
S. P. Co.
The unparalled misfortune of the
inhabitants of San Francisco ap
peals strongly to the sympathies of
the world and tneir needs appeal
with equal force to the charity of
the United States, and especially of
the Pacific Coast. A call for . help
comes from the stricked city through
official channels to the people of
Corvallis as shown by the foregoing
telegrams. A mass meeting is
called at the court house this even
ing for the purpose of taking ' ac
tion with reference to the matter.
The meeting is called by Mayor
Johnson and County' Judge Wat-
ters. There ovght to be a general
attendance and doubtless there will
be. No incident of a similiar
character has heretofore wrought
so upon the sympathies of our peo
ple and no person feels restraint in
rendering all the assistance com
mensurate with his means. The
interest in election matters should
for the moment be laid aside and in
this meeting we should and shall
entertain a common idea with refer
ence to our duty to humanity, Seven-thirty
is the time, and court
house the place.
The Southern Pacific Company
transports relief supplies free, and
already trains of provisions pre
speeding to the wrecked city. Re
lief should be prompt. Let us not
for a minute withhold the means of
satisfying the hunger which surely
prevails by the Golden Gate. There
is something almost unbearable in
the idea of offering charity to the
once prud city of San Francisco,
but since the necessity is present, it
is not likely that we shall hesitate
in rendeting assistance to our peo
ple while giving lavishly to. the
distressed of 'other nations.
The City Transfer Company will
haul all donated supplies- to the de
pot free of charge. Phone them.
San Francisco's Crlamity Was
the Shock Felt in Corvallis? 1
The catastrophe in stricken San
Francisco attracted deep interest in
Corvallis. News of the earthquake
and that buildings had been thrown
down and a thousand people killed
was on the street by 10 o'clock in
the morning and to this fresh re
ports were constantly added. In
terest grew as the ' day waned and
the telephone, telegraph and news
paper offices were besieged for in
formation. Everybody waited im
patiently for the evening papers by
the eight o'clock C. & E- A big
crowd of people was at the depot
and the news carriers did a land
office business. People jumped in
to the cars in the effort to be first in
getting a paper with accounts of the
cataclysm, and some of them sub
scribed for a month in order to get a
single copy. The same eagerness
was manifested at the post.oflice and
within a short time after the arrival
of the mails groups were gathered
in barber shops or under electric
lights on the streets, listening to
the reading by one of their num
ber of the story of the calamity.
Not a few had friends or relatives
in the stricken city, and great
anxiety was felt for the safety of
these. The Misses Louise and Jul
iet Cooper were concerned as to the
fate of their father who was believ
ed to be in San Francisco, a guest
?t the Grand hotel which was des
troyed, not by the earthqnake, but
by the fire that trailed in its wake.
J. H. Harris had a brother and oth
er relatives from whom nothing has
been heard, save that their place of
residence and business was destroy
ed. A sister ot Lee Heukle was 1
a resident or tnat part of the city
swept by the conflagration, and up
to last accounts, nothing had been
heard concerning her safety. Prof.
McDougal at the college was much
concerned about the safety of mem
bers of hi9 family, who reside at
Belmont, about 20 miles from the
stricken city. Robert Johnson, one
of the correspondents of the Associ
ated Press was in San Francisco,
and alarm for his safety was felt by
his sister, Mrs. J. H. Harris and
other relatives. All of the above
are believed to be safe, though
nothing definite has been learned of
them. Among the buildings des
troyed was the Winchester hotel,. 1
One woman leaped from the second
story window and escaped un
hurt. She believes she and her
child are the only ones that escaped
from the building. A brother of
S. B. Bane lived at the place, and
in the absence of news, Mr. Bane is
extremely anxious as to the fate of
Shocks of the earthquake were
felt at Roseberg, Grants Pass, Ash
land, Vancouver and at other
points. Several people in Corvallis
were awakened suddenly about the
time the city by the Golden Gate
was being rocked and shattered,
and some surmise that their awak
ening was the result of the earth's
