Aernria in to hold her annual regatta and country fair September 2-4. The labor unions of the city are to join the regatta parade on labor day. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson Can non ol Salem, passed through Cor vallis yesterday en route to New port for a few days outing. The rush of people to the sea side is slightly abated, although many are still going. By next week the tide will turn, and tbe exodus begin shortly thereafter, John Giblin. well-known pro prietor of the St. Charles Hotel, Albany, formerly landlord of the Occidental, Corvallis, was married Tuesday to Mrs. Mary Gallagher, at Seattle. Six fine deer, with antlers and hides as well as quantities of meat brought to town to prove it, are what Arnold King and John Kiger got in a deer hunt of a few days on Green Peak, from whence they re turned Wednesday night. It is the best luck, so far reported this sea son, with the exception of George Denman and Mike Bauer. Virgil Watters and fam ily arrived Tuesday evening from a camping trip in the Yachats country. The scarci ty of deer is illustrated in the fact that Mr. Watters, who is accounted one of the crack hunters of the country and a rifle shot with few equals, captured but one venison. David Whaley, who recently sold his farm west of town after a five years residence there, has em barked in the real estate business in Corvallis. His office is next door north of the Blackled'ge furniture store. His ad appears elsewhere, as do many other new and interest ing announcements. 1 wo gangs or surveyors ar! running lines across the Cascades , with what seems a purpose to ex tend the C. & E, road. One gang is encamped at Sand Mountain, and is working along the line of the old survey of r890, according to the Albany Democrat. Another gang-arrived in Albany yesterday, and the Democrat says they are going out to locate a permanent lirie for the extension across the mountains. The O. A. C. friends of Forest Smithson have always believed bim to be a swifter man than Dan Kel ly, the Baker City sprintei. Eve ry time they have ever met; when both were in prime condition, Smithson has been the victor. The report from Portland that members of the Multnomah Atletic Club take the same view, strengthens the con fidence of the local college men in the well-known O. A. C. short dis tance runner. It was always the opinion of the late Dad Trine that under proper conditions, Smithson was good for 9 4-5, and that he be lieved to be faster than Kelly can go. A little chap went to his moth er one dav for a nickel. "Oh," said the lady, "be industrious and earn your money. I am tired of always giving money to you." The youngster departedin thought ful silence. Thereafter for some time he did not make a single demand for cash. His pleased .mother dis covered the reason for this obedi ence late one afternoon, when in a secluded part of her garden, she found her little son standing in the center of an appreciative crowd of urchins. Directly behind hin, quite neatly printed on cardboard and tacked to ths arbor,- was this announcement: WILLIE JONES WILL EAT 1 small worm for, 1 cent 1 large worm for . 2 cents 1 butterfly for 2 cents 1 caterpillar for 3 cents 1 hop toad for 5 cents And the boy was doing a tre mendous business. A wreck on the C. & E. at tracted much attention in town yesterday. It happened to the east-bound passenger, v.. cons' st ing of a loc imotive, two box cars, a baggage and four ' coaches. As the train was passing up m the approach to a bridge Between Blodgett and Wren the two trucks on the forward box car left the rails, and the car itself -was thrown cross wise of the track. The box car left the rails, bnt the baggage car re mained on the track. The sudden stop shook up the passengers and there was a period of excitement, but no injuries. The trouble bap pened at ir o'clock,- and it was four when the passengers reached . Cor vallis, having been transferred to a special taken out from Corvallis by Conductor Riley. The same train passed back at six p. m. with bay bound passengers, who were trans ferred. The wreckage was cleared away and all trains are on time . to day-.
