Tells Incidents of Intimate
Acquaintance With Great
BY GENIAL SPEAKER
Seven Days' Program in
Campus Tent Comes to
The story is told of two Scotch
highwaymen who once attacked a
Jew peddler and sought to separ
ate him from bis wealth. After
a furious fight. In which they were
battered only a little less than the
v ctim, they overcame and frisked
"Losh sake," gasped the big
gest Hileand robber, as he gazed
out of his one unbattered eye at
the shilling piece that they found
in the Hebraic pockets, "What
would he have done to us if he'd
had a whole guinea?"
.Miu Farlane Is Scotch.
But some Scotchmen get their
material a lot easier than that.
Peter Clark MacFarlane is one.
He doesn't corkscrew either mon
ey xr information out. of people
they just go up to him and give it
to him, at least; the information.
He's trained himself for many
years in the way of sunshine and
helpfulness; his smile, and his
hand clasp, and his human under
standing, and. his charity, bring
hfm the things that the man ot
violence could never getk The
tent was again crowded last night.
MacFarlane was a friead cf The
odore Roosevelt. He met the
doughty colonel down nt the Mo-
qui Indian annual dance in South
west America, when T. R. was a
virile, hot-blooded hunter and na
turalist. Her met Roosevelt again
after his return from South
America, where he had fought the
Jtiver of Doubt almost to the
eath. Then, the colonel was
emaciated, spent, broken, thin
voiced. He was the pitiTul figure
r.t the warrior that MacFarlane
had met on the other occasion.
Koosevelt would not tell -him the
story of the trip. "Ask Cherry,"
he said; "he will tell it all." Cher
ry was his triend and companion.
The story as told in the leotura
lat night, is an epic of Ame.-ican-
ibin, as MacFarlune go it out of !

Roosevelt Near IVath.
"The colonel was too ok! to
make this trip; 10 years older!
than the other man," said Mac
Farlane., "He was the first, al
ways, to' help in any hard job; tie
tirst over the side of the boat
whenever help was needed to save
the craft from the rocks. The
bruises, and the insect bites, and
the exposure brought on the fe
ver. True to the traditions of his life,
he still went on. always helping.
The food failed"; ' sometimes only
a little monkey meat, or a few
palm buds. Ostentatiously, as
head of the party, he would serve
or divide the meal, but he would
try to slide part of his own star
vation portion to some other mem
ber of the party. 'Why, I'm not
working,' he would say, when de
tected in the act.
"Finally came the day when
they confessed themselves lost,
a scout went aliead, and was pone
for a day. He came back, baf
fled. Then the Colonel, whom
they believed to be dying, said to
Cherry: 'Cherry, it's now every
man for himself. I've had my day
and I don't count But I wish
you'd take the boy (Kermit) and
see that he gets his chance. Take
him home and give him to his
mother, and leave me here.'
Obligation Is Kept.
"They didn't leave him. They
fought it on, and Kermit finally
found the way to safety. But ev
ery day, in the cool of the even
ing, before the delirium of the
night followed the delirium of the
day, the Colonel would prop him
self up on his elbow, write up the
scientific and personal story of the
day, and then the fever would
seize him In delirium.
"What did he say In hi3 delir
ium? His expedition had been ar
ranged for by Scribners. and he
felt his obligation to them so that
it pervaded his every moment. 'I
must finish It,' he would say. '1
will finish it!' The Journal of the
expedition along the River of

man but he lived it through and
kept his obligation."

WOODBURX, Or., July 31. Officer Allen Harried, who

council, is making life miserable for autoists who speed by
Woodburn at a greater speed than 30 miles an hour.
Tommy Milton of Seattle was one Of Harned's recent vic

of one hasty trip past Woodburn at about 40 miles per hour.
Milton won the speedway races at Tacoma on July 4 and since
at Los Angeles. Officer Harned has averaged two traffic
arrests per day during the two weeks he has been on duty.
For a distance of about four blocks, the Pacific highway

Journal is Misinformed
About Arrest of Ryan
Either the Oregon Journal has
fabricated or the Inspectors' de
partment of the Portland police
force has given out erroneous in
formation relative to the part the
local police played in the arrest
of Jack Ryan. The story claimed
that in thfcir search the local po
lice had overlooked $1000 which
the Portland inspector later had
found, claiming that Moffltt
found but JG.S0, while it was in
timated that Inspector Miller of
fhe Portland force found $1000
secreted in Ryan's shoes.
Called last night by telephone
to account for ths origin of the
story Inspector "Pat" Maloneyof
the Portland force insisted . that
the Portland story had not been
given by him. He said that the
Portland inspector had not found
any more money on Ryan and ac
knowledged that the Salem men
had handled the case thoroughly.
