The Mack Porter Residence on State
Road No Insurance.
Wednesday afternoon the farm
residence of Mack Porter, on the
state road, with almost its entire
contents, was totally destroyed by
fire. Mr. Porter and a grandson
were in the building at the time the
flames were discovered, but being
in the upper story the flames were
not observed until it was so well
under way. that it was deemed use
less to undertake to stay its des
truction of the building. The oc
cupants lent their endeavors to the
rescue of lurniture but little of that
was removed to a place of safety
before the flames drove the work
ers from the house. The loss is
from two to three thousand dollars.

How it Affects the "Four Hundred"
The insinuating craze made its
appearance in Corvallis about twoj
weeks ago, since which time it has
marvelously spread, and laid uc-
cesstul siege to the innermost cir
cles of our best society. The foun
dation of the disease for such it is
claimed to be by competent author
ity is said to be a peculiar mi-'
crobe, the character of which, it is
believed; is very similar to that
producing "brain storm." There
is no known remedy. It just has
to run it course.
The craze . has attacked,' with
great virulency, the organization
known as the Barnacle Club. At
the club's solicitation, the skating
rink was exclusively given over
two evenings to the members tn
order to allow them full scope for
exercise ot the various forms in
which it has taken hold upon the
Previous to these two events the

(Jnejevening in the earlier time
of the epidemic was seen the lithe
form, of E. E. Wilson band-in-hand
with Tommy Jones, scaling the
outer circle of the rink, but before
the close of the session he had so
tar surmounted bis difficulties as
to glide in the inner cire'e. Upon
the second eveninghetore round and

equal to Lhat of a real Kansas cy

as little regard for what was in his

progress of Mr. Wilson.
The evening; performances par
took of the nature of a dime mu
seum. Much had been said during
the week by Prof, McKellips about
his performances on rollers, but his
reputation as a skater was clouded
at once when he shuffled onto the
floor in full dress suit and bearing
a bottle of arnica and a box of his
widely known pain pills.
It is strange how this form of
rollerism affects people. Bob John
son for example, when on the floor
imagined that he was a locomotive,
and he was evidently not intending
any fake business. When his wheels
those on his feet once began to
roll, he pniilrln'r srrm. npitbpr rnnld
