Poetlaxd Veteran Dead. Ex-members
of the Second Oregon "Volunteers
"were grieved yesterday to learn of the
death at Saranac Lake, New York, of an
other comrade, W. C. Johnson, formerly
Corporal In Company F. Corporal John
son -was returned from the field to the
hospital during the northward campaign
that resulted In the capture of Malolos,
and was still too weak at the time of tho
regiment's departure from Manila to come
with it. He came on the hospital-ship Re
lief, which sailed shortly afterwards, and
was able to visit his company occasionally
whi'e waiting for muster-out at tho Pre
sidio. From there he went to Southern
California, where he remained until he
began to grow weaker again from dreaded
dysentery, and then started to his rela
tives in New York that he might die at
home. Johnson was well known in Al
blna before enlisting in the Second Ore
gon, as he was in partnership with a resi
dent of Alblna in the bakery business for
some time previous. His fate has been
the same as many of the soldiers who re
turned from tho Islands believing they
would be fully restored to health after
reaching this climate.
Collision in the Yards. A rear-end
collision occurred In the Terminal grounds
last evening, but fortunately no one was
hurt. The O. B. & N. passenger train
was about to leave for the East at 8
o'clock, but the draw on the steel bridge
opened and the train stopped. A North
ern Pacific freight train was getting ready
to leave for Tacoma, and the train hands,
not aware of the detention of the passen
ger train, permitted the freight to back up
against it. A Pullman car and a caboose
thus came together with a crash that
damaged both cars, the coach getting the
worst of it, as the rear end was crushed
and the windows broken. The damaged
Pullman was sent back to the yards.
Miss Farnham at Unitarian Ciiatel.
One of the pleasant events for the coming
week will be the regular monthly literary
meeting of the "Woman's Auxiliary of the
Unitarian Church, at which Miss Farn
ham, of Forest Grove, will speak upon
"South Africa, Social and Political Life."

promises to be an especially attractive
one, since a 10-years residence in South
ern Africa enables Miss Farnham to speak
advisedly. Music will enliven the pro
gramme. Members and friends are cor
dially welcome. Business meeting at 2
o'clock, programme promptly at 2:30.

tations and readings. The Song of Songs,

earliest full expression of romantic love
known in any language," will be read in

ter Continues Until Thursday.
Owinc to labor complications la Chi
cago, very few fine pianos have been
built there of late, but xw the great '
Kimball factories are running again full
time, and last week we received the first
carload of Kimballs that has reached us
since late last year. The new 1900 styles
are beauties finer and more artistic than
ever. Instruments that axe bound to win
additional laurels for the ever-triumphant
Last week we received a large shipment
of Chlckering- pianos from Boston, so that
we now have an almost complete assort
ment of these world-renowned Instruments
on hand. A carload of the popular Mil
ton pianos also arrived, and altogether we
now have a very complete assortment of
fine pianos on tho floor.
During the past week we have taken a
large number of slightly -used and second

Our business is to sell new pianos new
Chlckerlngs, new Webers and new Kim
balls and wo haven't the room nor the
inclination to carry a large number of
second-hand Instruments in stock waiting
for buyers who will pay big prices for
them. These second-hand instruments
must "get a move on," Low prices and
easy terms will bo the motive power to
accomplish this result this coming week.
