Are you going on a vacation, a trip to the mines, the woods - or to
the sea-shore. Yes? Then you need a time-piece, but can you afford
to carry that valuable watch to such a place as that? Certainly not!
Why risk the loss of the watch or the chance of a costly smash-up when
you can get comparatively accurate time with on of those DOLLAR
watches that Pratt the Jeweler & Optician sells?
A Parker "Luckey Curve" fountain pen is just the thing for these
occasions too. .

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.

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

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
