Mrs. James K, Berry, wife of the
chief of the Corvallis fire depart

yesterday afternoon, in a room at
the Occidental Hotel. She attempt
ed to take carbolic acid, but before
she could carry out her purpose,
the bottle was wrenched from her
hand by her husband who was in
the .room at the time. Persisting
further in her design, she swallow
ed three antiseptic tablets, known
to druggists as bi-chloride of mer
cury. The dose would have been
more than enough to kill, but Mr.
Berry summoned medical assistance
quickly, and after three hours' hard
work by Drs. Cathey and Farra,
the life of the woman was saved,
and she is now understood to be out
Family difficulties are understood
to be at the bottom of Mrs. Berry's
action. She and her husband were
married two or three years ago, and
resided in the western part of town.
During the early summer Mrs. Ber

John McGee Expired While Sitting in
Buggy The Funeral Arrangements.
Sitting in his buggy yesterday an
without warning of any kind of his
impending fate, John McGee, a well
known citizen of Benton county for
many years past, suddenly expired
He was enroute to town at the time
with Mi . Gill who is employed by
Mr. Tunnison. McGee was at the
mail box on the state road when
Gill came along, and there, he en
tered the buggy. While crossing
Marys river bridge, McGee sudden
ly leaned heavily against Gill and
dropped his head on the latter's
shoulder. Realizing that the ail
ment of his passenger was of ser
ious character, Gill drove hastily
down town, stopping in front of
Graham & Wells' drug store.
There McGee' s eyes rolled wildly
as if in the agonies of death, and
he passed away. He was driven
thence to Wilkin's undertaking
rooms and Dr. Farra was summon
ed. He was too late, for by this
time, the heart had ceased to beat
and John McGee was no more.
The arrangements for the funer
al were not complete at 2:30 this
afternoon. Mrs. McGee at the
time of her husband's death, was
visiting in Colfax, Washington.
A married daughter, Mrs. Winkle,
resides near there. The arrival of
Mrs. McGee was expected this af
ternoon, and ifwas believed that
the funeral will occur tomorrow af
ternoon. The service will be con
ducted by Rev. Father Lane of
The deceased was 73 years of age.
He had resided for many years in
Benton county. Besides those men
tioned above, the surviving mem
bers of the family are, John, Frank
and W. A.. McGee, sons, and Mrs.
Witham, daughter, all of this coun
When he came to the mail box
yesterday morning, Mr. McGee
met and talked with James Cain.
To him he complained of not feel

when Gill was passing, he was feel
ing so ill that he determined to
come to town, and he entered the

To Contractor Rumor That Proposed
Woman's Building is not to be
Built This Year.
The proposed new Woman's
building at the college is in a state
of inocuous desuetude, if not total
collapse. Wherein the secretary of
state and the kuildiug, committee
differed on the subject of how the
appropriation could be expended
was recently related in the Times.
A recent opinion by the attorney
general coincided with the view of
the secretary of state. It was to
the effect that the whole of the
$65,000 appropriation could not be
used for the Woman s building.
As stated by President .Weather
lord, only about $50, 000 of the sum
can be used for that purpose and
the balance must be used for a drill
shed. To the $50,000, the sum of
$10,000 from the regular college
funds was et aside for the use of
the building committee, making
$60,000 in all. As planned how
ever, the building was to cost about
$69,000, and while it is not cer
tainly known, it is believed that
the committee has abandoned the
plan of building with the present
appropriation, as the certified check
put up by Mr. Snook, who secured
the contract, was sent for yester
day by the architect, for the pur
pose of returning it to Mr. Snook.
