P. A. Ten Haaf, concert baritone and teacher of singing, will
conduct a summer class in voice during July and the first two
weeks of August. .While comparatively new in Portland, Mr. Ten
Haaf 's extraordinary success as a vocal teacher has been the
topic of much discussion among the teaching profession. Through
the science of co-vibration, acoustics and resonance, his pupils
have been quick to master their teacher's conception of the per
fect singing tone, and are already setting a high standard in
' vocalism throughout the west.
Mr. , Ten Haaf will be glad to consult with intending pupils
tfesiring vocal instruction, or those who are in doubt as to the
correctness qf their tone production.

Dedication of Fort Hoskins
Missed by Confederate.
Retired Corral lis Pastor Has Re
merabrance of Sheridan.
REGON AGRICULTURAL COL
LEGE, Corvallis, June 24.
(Special.) Dedication of the site of
Fort Hoskins Memorial day failed ;
to draw one pioneer of Benton
county who has a startling remem
brance of Phil Sheridan, builder of
the fort Dr. J. R. N. Bell, pastor .
emeritus of the First Presbyterian
church in Corvallis, and traditional
football mascot of the college for
whom the stadium and athletic field
on the south campus was named.
Only the fact that Dr. Bell has
been confined to his bed for a year
and nine months kept him from the
perpetuation ceremonies, for he
made Sheridan's acquaintance on the
battlefield Cedar Creek, in Shenan
doah valley immediately after
Sheridan's famous ride.
Dr. Bell was on the other side.
"We Confederates had the north
erners on the run," said Dr. Bell,
"and things were in our favor. I
was supporting a battery. . All at '
once I saw Sheridan ride up on a
sweat-covered horse, notmore than
300 yards away. He rallied his
troops and made a sweeping counter
attack. We were forced to fall back,
as we were badly scattered and the.
officers began a retreat."
Dr. Bell was captured three times
that night, and three times made his
escape in the woods. John Young,
also of Corvallis, and a great friend
of Dr. Bell's today, happened to be
in charge of the northern soldiers
who captured Dr. Bell. Mr. Young
is a frequent caller at the bedside
of his former opponent in the great
struggle, and always brings him a
present on Memorial day.
"Sheridan was a great hunjer,"
said Dr. Bell. "He went to Salem
and borrowed a double-barreled
shotgun to go on a goose hunt. On
his way home in the evening with
an empty bag he saw. a flock of
barnyard geese swimming in a small
pond near the road. Sheridan asked
a farmer leaning on the fence if he
would let him shoot one barrel of
his gun in the flock for a dollar
and get to keep all he killed. The
"Sheridan fired and killed four.
'Here's your dollar,' he said. 'Thank
you,' said the farmer, 'You'd better
get going, for here comes the old
lady who owns the geese." It cost
$20 to appease her wrath."
Pioneers who were unable to at
tend the Fort Hoskins ceremony
were much Interested In newspaper
reports and pictures of the affair.
Many of them believe that more his
toric spots should be marked with
some enduring monument of stone
