There is beginning to be some

This is the bcs: town in the
valley," remarked a drummer on
the street yesterday afternooD.
Half a dozen people were standing

tea etreet in this town than in ma
ny towns in Eastern Oregon double
its eize, and all of them seem to
have something to do. I always
do a good business in this town,
and we always get our money.
Corvallis is one of the best towns I
know of." It sounded good, for
the man spoke with gieat tamest
nesa and meant what he said. He
travels for a well-known Portland
establishment. Pretty much tha
same story is said to be told by all
of the commercial men. ,
E. E. Wilson was to have been
, member of the ''Leans" in the
basket ball game at the college Fri
day night. He was depended on
a one of the star players and his
absence in the struggle probably
accounts for the victory of the
'fats." No blame attaches, howev
er, and his partners in the team
tiav forgiven his absence. He sent
instead a certificate signed by Dr.
Jackson, stating that Mr. Wilson
was physically incopacitated from
playing. Dr.. Jackson is a veter
inary surgeon, and the certificate
was perfectly satisfying to Mr. Wil
son's team mates and many lriende,

The marriage of Miss Elizabeth
Sice of Corva lis, and Frank L.
JJobinson of Lisbon, North Dakota,
-was solemnized at the home of the
bride's parents, Mr. and Mr?. G F.
Sice, at noon, Satnrday. The knot
was tied by Rev. G. C. Hurd in
. the presence of the family and 35
:guest. The wedding march was
tpiayed by Miss Eleie Rice 'and lit
tle Miss sMildred Hall was flower
girl. Frank White was bett man
-and Miss Lulu Rice bridesmaid.
T The ceremony was very impressive,
-and when congratulations were ov
er the bridal party and guestB par
' took of a delicious wedding lunch
eon. The home, which shelters one
of the best families in the county
"was beautifully decorated for the
occasion. The bride is a fovorite

-A Dietty incident happened in
"-G. A. R. Hall Saturday night. It
was at the meeting of the Old Sol
"diereMonurxent association. Among
. '-the guests was Dr. J. R. N. Bell, a
j an an who wore the Gray for four
: .years and one month. At the sug
- geetion of a veteran who wore the
' Blue almost as long, Dr. Bell was
1 called on for an address. He was at
Winchester. Curiously enough, in
the hall was D. C. Rose, who, too,
was at Winchester. Mr. Rose fought
-on one side of the river, and Dr.
VBell on the otheer The fact gave a
tcrucTi of extreme interest to the re
marks of Dr. Bell, and in a bhort
,ddress full of patriotism, reminia
"wnice and good feeling, the scenes of
Winchester were lived over again.
Br. Bell saw Sheridan coma riding
on to the field when his lires were
in full flight before the confederate
-advance, saw him turn defeat into
victory. When asked the color of
-Sheridan's horse. Dr. Bell replied,
"White, white with foam." How

Neglected Colds Threaten Liife.
From the Chicago Tribune.'
" Don't trifle with a cold,' is good advice
for prudent men and women, it may be
vital in the case of a child. Proper food,
good ventilation, and dry, warm clothing are
the proper safeguards against colds. If they
are maintained through ' the changeable
weather of autumn, winter and spring, the
chances of a surprise from ordinary colds
will be slight. But the ordinary light cold
will become severe if neglected, and a well
established ripe cold is to the germs of diph
theria what honey is to the bee. The great
est menace to child life at this season of the
vear is the neglected cold.' Whether it is
child or adult, the cold slight or severe, the
very best treatment that can be adopted is to
give Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It is
safe and sure- The great popularity and im
mense sale of this preparation has been attain
ed by its remarkablecuresof this ailment. A
cold never results in pneumonia when it is
given. - Dor sale by Uraham & Wortham.
