making a deficit of $455.52. This, together

A Pleasant Surprise.
On last Wednesday evening a number of
friends of Leo. Stock gathered at the home
of Miss Jessie Taylor, from whence they
proceeded to the Stock mansion, deter
mined to give Leo a grand surprise. The
occasion was his 21st birthday, and those's
who had known Leo for years in his boy
hood, wished to congratulate him on having
arrived at that age at which the laws of our
country permit him to be a man and manage
his own affairs. The evening was enjoyably
spent in dancing, singing and card playing,
at at a late hour the gathering adjourned,
wishing Leo long life and prosperity.

by the very low prices actual cost for

it has been more of an aggravation to the
thirsty soil than anything else. While oth

with capious showers, our farmers have con
stantly complained of its being too dry to
plow. On last Monday evening, however
it began raining and a steady shower was

SCATTER BRIGHT FLOWERS.
Saturday, May 30th is Decoration Day,
the observance of which has bf en a Nation
al custom; a day set apart for strewing the
graves of comrades, whose lives have been
freely given up in the defense of country
and flag, with bright flowers and to honor
their memory by appropriate ceremouies
and remembrances of their heroism and sac
rifice. All over the nation, from the At
lantic to the Pacific, old soldiers will gather

day and with saddened memories of those

Sled From Drinking.
A very sad death occured in our city last
Saturday from drinking, in which our citi
zens showed very little humanitarianism.
An old gentleman by the name of William
H. Allen, who has seen the frosts of over
sixty winters, ha3 lived in our city for some
time past, his avocation being that of a
boot-black. He was addicted to drink and
the few short "bits" he would earn with his
brush soon found their way to ' the saloon-keeper's
till. He had no relatives in
the city and his friends werenearly as scarce
as his kinsfolk. On last Saturday morning
he drank too much, and was carried to tho
engine house in a terrible condition. In the
evening he was taken with spasms ami about
9 o'clock the old veteran passed over the
bridge that spans time and eternity. He
was hurried on Sunday, by less than a half
dozen who volunteered a few moments to
pay the "last, sad rites." No tears were

blessings their sacrifice brought for those
that survive them will present themselves
in vivid recollections of camp life and march
strife and carnage, weary days iu hospital
and prison, in these days past when these
dead comrades stood beside them shoulder
to shoulder in the great strife that should
decide the destiny of a great nation. The
toils and duties of a soldiers life are over.
Its memories only remain,' and to preserve
these memories green and to honor the dead
and to keep green the recollections of their
great ser vice to their country, these ceremo
nies are held each successive year. But cus
tom through ready sympathy born for the
soldier in the days gone by the whole peo
pie has made this day not only one to be
observed by soldiers, but by all. The citi
Zers are cordially invited to suspend their
usual avocations and unite with surviving
soldiers in harmony, not only the dead who
were onco comrades of the one in armies,
but also the dead of the others who have

this work as it ought to be, and feeling very
sure that the many strong, active, energetic
young ladies.of our city, not directly con
nected with the temperance work, would,
if once interested in the work, carry it on
in a very able manner, and that they were
not mistaken is proven beyond question by
the good work that has been done. Arri?-
ing at tnis conclusion, tne union uuc.
asked all the ladies of the city to meet them
at the Evangelical church to organize. Three
good and brave hearted young ladies res
ponded to the call. Not feeling satisfied to
organize with so few, a committee was ap
pointed to make anether call and to see if
the fireman's hall could be had for our meet
ing. At the next meeting, on May 28th,
just nine ladies caie, five who were mem
bers of the W. 0. T. V., four who were not.
We organized and the good work began.
At the "big tire," wnen all Corvallis
seemed for a while, doomed, not only did
the members of the club come out on duty,
but ladies of both the W. C. T. U. and the
1. O. G. T. all gave a helping hand. I dis
tinctly remember seeing one lady of the
Union, just leaving for home at ten minutes
of two iu the morning, haviug worked faith
fully from the starting of the fire until that
At the last regular meeting of the club,
two of the firemen canie and with an appro
priate speech presented the clab with the
handsome gift of twenty dollar. Our Presi
dent appointed a committee of three to
draw up sitablc resolutions of thanks to the
firemen awl to see that the same be insert
ed in our local papers; this committee was
composed of one lady of the I. O. G. V., one
from the Y. . C. T. U. and one a member
of both W. C. T. U. and I. O. G. T. So
you see my good fireman that there are a
few temperance workers that care for your
welfare, and I can assure you that there are
i members of the W. C. T. U. wh are phys
ically unable to minister to your comfort at
the tires, who never the less have just as
earnest a desire to see yon cared for, as do
those who are better able to do the active
hard work. I think the trouble of the
"Kireman" who wrote the "Query," is, that
he has no eyes for but one or two fair faces
and they so entirely satisfy him and take
up his whole attention that he quite over
looks the more iusignificent unattractive
ones. L. H. A.
