The H..& L band boys promise

the innovation will make a hit.
A polygamist in Salt Lake City

Now he is as bald as -a pump
kin. Seth Hurlburt has made an
uncommon discovery of pre-his-toric
remains, while excavating
on his ranch a few miles south of
Corvallis. The specimens seen,
so far, are evidently bones or
shells of giant crustaceans, but
are so far decayed as to destroy
their positive classification.

called to explain dial. I hey took

arrested, as stated in last week'.

they would make a complaint in

a case of bluff.

Hon. E. R. Lake returned
Saturday from a week's absence
in Portland. In recognition of
his untiring efforts looking to
ward securing some favorable
legislation in the interests of
better highways, Mr. Lake was
chosen chairman of the Good
Roads convention, which held a
three days' session in Portland
last week. Several hundred del
egates from various portions of

an impetus to the good roads
movement all over Oregon.

Wm. Rockett, the nightwatch
man of the little steamboat Gyp

lamette points, was on duty Satur
day night, when the boat was ly

was seen early Sunday morning,
but siuce then no trace can be

he found death in the Willamette,

It is uenerallv thought thai he

ed. Some suspect foul play, but
the members of the boat's crew
scout the the idea, and think he

-Between 2 and 3 o'clock in the
morning a party on the other
side of the river heard someone
shouting, but nothing was thought
of the incident at the time. It

Death ef Mrs. E. Holgate.
Mrs, E- Holgate, wife 6f Judge
Holgate, died Wednesday morn
ing at her home in this city after
a brief illness. She had been
in"- poor health for several
months, but had uot been dan
gerously ilUuntil within the past
week, when lier daughter Helen,
who had bcen.attending college
in Portland, wassent for. ? Some
time ago Mrs. -Holgate sustained
a serious - fall the - shock from
which doubtless hastened her de
mise. Though not of a robust
constitution, she was possessed
of an indomitable will, which
she strongly exercised to the last,
insisting that she was not seri
ously afflicted and would soon be
around as usual. She, however,
overestimated her strength and
early Wednesday morning, sur
rounded by members of her fam-
ilyj she passed peacefully away.
Anna Violet Holgate was born
in Sullivan county, Missouri,
May iQth. I84.0. She was the
1 2 til child of John and Mary
Watt, a prominent pioneer fam
ily, who crossed the plains in
I847 and located in Yamhill
county. Alno Watt, one of her
brothers, is an official of the O.
R. & N. Co., and Joseph Watt,
another brother, -who died a few
years ago, was" also well, known
throughout the state, v She was
a sister of Mrs. B. H. Bowman;
Mrs. J. A. Morton and Mrs. Rox-
anna White, J of Portland, and
Mrs. Werner Breyman, of Sa
lem, all of whom are now in
the city and will remain until
after the , funeral.
Miss Watt spent her childhood
in Yamhill county, but previous
to her marriage, was employed as
a teacher in the public schools of
this city. It was while thus en
gaged thai she became acquaint
ed with Mr. E. Holgate, whom
she married August 30th, 1860,
since which time they have re-j
sided continuously in this city.
Mrs. Holgate was the mother of
six children, all of whom sur
vive her. The eldest, Willard
W. Holgate, now resides in Ba
ker City, Arthur E. and Edward
T. live in Portland, and the oth
er three children, H. L, Helen
and Don, reside at home.
Today, within that gnef-stnek-
en home, the inky draperies of
sorrow displace the bright color
ings of Christmas tide, aud sobs
and lamentations rise instead of
jflad carols and joyous greeting.-..
How fitting that the closing scene
111 a Christian lite snouia conic
upon the day which . marks the
birth of Him, who died that ever
lasting life might come to those
who had faith in Him. She was
a loving, devoted wife, a tender,
affectionate mother, a genfrous,
changeless friend, a true, gentle
woman. And when the voice that
called her hence shall summon
those from whom it gave her grief
to part, may they join her in the
world of rest and peace "Where

Jas. Flett has invented a paper
perforating machine that seems to
be a great success. The first ma-

iieC is now busy remedvins

A satisfactory -perforater is one
of the demands of the iirintinsr

field lor the sale of Mr. Flett's
machine should the invention
p.ove as successful as appearances
ndicate it will be.

is entirely new.. , It will-perforate
