HORSES AND AUTOS.
Also men Some Incidents and Some
' -. f .
The advent of new autos has put
Benton county horses on their met
tie and their owners on the qui
vive. It has also put some owners
on the ground. George Denman
was one. He met Mark Rickard's
new machine, and the horse paid
no attention until after the danger
was cver.-ySTben jhe got jscsred and
ran with ihrig which !carf.ied. sev
eral ladies, into a ditch. Mr.
Rickard chivalrously picked up the
wreck and hauled all home.
When an auto approaches a ve
hicle from the rear, and the warn
ing horn is blown, there is always
activity on the upper works of the
vehicle. The decks are cleared for
action without delay. Two men in
a buggy,, under such circumstances,
the other dayj leaped but and both
seized the horse by the bridle bits.
They were the only really scared
things in the neighborhood. the
wise horse neither moved a muscle
nor batted an eye. He acted like
he had been elbowing autos all his
life. His drivers, however, didn't
suspect him to be so wise and evi
dently expected, when the auto
flashed before him, that he would
flip a back somersault over the
buggy or coon up a tree, buggy,
drivers and all. -
Samuel Whitesides, the well
known farmer west otjtown, took
time by the forelock. His son
Clarence drives an auto. The old
gentleman got his roadsters ail to
gether and tied them to a tree. By
appointment, Clarence appeared
with the machine and took it
through all manner of evolutions in
the presence of the prancing bunch
circling around them, blowing the
horn and performing generally.
As a result of the treatment Mr.
Whitesides, the elder, expects his
equines to live the simple quiet life,

' - MARKED DEATH.
Alleged Plot t Assassinate Monroe
Merchants A Warning Letter.
In a warning letter received
through the mails by A. Wilhelm
at Monroe yesterday, it is stated
that members cf the well known
firm are marked for death , , and
that they are to be blown up with
bombs in the same way that the
death' of ex Governor Steuenberg
was accomplished in Idaho in De
cember 1905. The letter, which is
signed "A Farmer," declares that
six men have sworn to do the deed,
and that the last of August is the
limit to which the marked men are ,
to be allowed to live. Adam Wil
helm Sr. and his sons Mat and
Adam are mentioned as slated for "
death, and the assassin that picks
off the first one receives a bonus of
$500. Instant death is declared to
be the portion of any one of the six
who shall give information as to the
plans. The letter says a bomb is to
be placed at the gate of the Wll
helm home, just as was done at exj
Liovernor tsteuenberg s gate.
A tact that makes the letter as
sume graver interest is that some
time ago a plan to burn the Wil
helm store narrowly failed - of exe
cution. Several places about the
building were saturated with coal
oil, and a m?tch was applied. For
some reason, the design failed, and
now the letter pretends to throw
light on the affair by saying that
'the kid " tbat was to do the burn-
iug got frightened and put out the
fi-re, after he had , lighted it. The .
letter also insists.: that the gang of
six claim they have grievances'
against the Wilhelms. and that the
assassination is to be a means of
revenge, ihe letter is written on
a circular sent out in the late cam
paign by J. Scott Taylor, demo
cratic candidate for - state printer.
An additional detail that heightens
the seriousness of the letter is that
such threats as it contains are
known to have been made several
times in the past. The firm is one
of the best known in the county,
and comprises citizens of high char
acter. The letter is as follows:
- THE LETTERS .
A Wilhelm you are v Marked to
Be killed with a Bumb and I want
to Give you a Chance for your life
it is Planed -to Plant a Bumb at
year gate Mat and Adam are also
Marked Be on yonr garH. 6. Men
have Planed tq do it when the fire,,
was started to get you all out to the
fire and then shoot all cf you But
the kid that started the fire got
scared and Put the fire out. 6 men
have sworn to pick you. of and one
of the 6 pretends to be your friend
and gets favors off you they all say
Wilhelms done them dirt and gee
even the man that shoots the first
one of you gets five hundred dol
lars and the man that tells gits kill
ed you are all to be killed By the
last of August dont let on you No
for if they no I posted you I'll be
killed. - :
For the Woman's Building Sonie Fig
ures That Enter Into the Con
struction. Pressed brick is arriving for com
pletion of the walls of the Woman's,
building at the College It comes
from Newberg and thereby hangs a
tale. The clay for making it is
taken from the banks ot the Wil
lamette near Buena Vista. The
clay bed could not be reached on
account of high water during boat
iog season, and the material, after
being digged from the bank, was
hauled by team to the railroad at
Parker station. The men who
hauled it made $5.50 per day,
which is a straw that shows some
thing of the cost of the brick.
By train, the clay was carried to
the brick works at Newberg, and
then, by train it was carried to Cor
vallis. . For all this handling there
was' a good wage, and the ultimate
cost of the brick may be imagined,
There are 400,000 brick, pressed
and common in the building.
There are 500,000 lath. Sixteen
hundred pounds of nails are requir
ed in putting on the lath. There
is 7o odd thousand feet of floor
space. Over seven tons of nails
enter into construction or the build
ing, and over 9,000 barrels of ce
ment. - . ' ,
The work is going ahead as rap
idly as the delay in securing mater
ials will permit. A portion of the
structure will probably oe reaay
for occupancy by the -opening of
college September 2?th.
