From the following it will appear that a lady of Corvallis, while visiting in Albany recently had an exciting experience. The lady, we learn, was Mrs. Lafferty. "Last evening Mrs. J. A. Weaver and Mrs. C. C. Parker and a lady guest from Corvallis, were out driv ing with Mr. Parker's team, and when near Penniwinkle the team became frightened at a horse tied to a tree and which was tangled up in his rope.

"Dilley. the fixer," and his assist ant started out Saturday evening for the Santiam, where they fished during Sunday. They had fair success, but if "the fixer" had suc ceeded in landing the fish he lost, we could all have eaten of it. The struggle between Mr. Dilly and the fish was long and fierce and was considered a draw. After all was over the fish lay on the top of the water and took his breath, while Dilly sat on the bank and watched him. Have "the fixer" relate the story with all attention to circum stance and detail and you will have heard the best fish story of the sea son. FIVE RECORDS BROKEN. U. of O. Won the Inter-Collegiate Meet After a Thrilling Contest Defeated, but still undaunted. This is the position of supporters of the orange today. The stoic manner in which she takes de feat and the - fate: have been most unkind to the O A C and the determination with which she enters each new contest, has won for her the admiration of her victorious rivals, and the ap pl ause of the onlookers. While the team from O A C failed of the championship, they were right in at the finish of every contest, and new records were made to beat them. Collec tively they were superior to the crack team of '97 which made more points than all other colleges together, but unfortunately the strength of the teams of other colleges was so distributed as to be in nearly all cases to the dis advantage of the orange. The statement in Monday's Oregoniaii that there was a gen eral desire on the part of other colleges to see Eugene lose the cup, is unfair and without foun dation. Had the other schools wished to show partiality, they could have thrown the cup to O A C. Against any team singly, the orange could have secured an easy victory with the exception of U of O, and a glance at the result of each contest, if the names of other schools be elimi nated, would show that the strength of U of O and O A C would be nearly equal in a dual meet. In several instances the "farm ers"' did better in the events en tered than they have ever done in trials. Burnough covered five fieet and six inches in the high jump, breaking the inter collegiate record and excelling all previous record by three inches. Woodcock vaulted 10 feet, and this was six inches over his record. Burnett and Stimp- son each did several seconds bet ter than they have been doing in the trials, and Cathey bested the redoubtable Dick Smith in the low hurdles. Scott, in the broad jump and Colvig in the 100-yard dash were a disappointment, but Smith, U of O, in the- broad jump, and Payne, U of O, in the mile run, also made no showing. The surprises of the day, even to their most ardent was the performance in the half mile and great performance run. Heater, of the occasion in his arms, preventing Stimp son from finishing, and losing another point for the orange. New records were made in the half-mile, high jump, 120-yard hurdles, mile and hammer.throw. U of O earned 41 points; O A C 25 points, W U 25 points, and P C 20 points.

CLOSING EXERCISES. in admirers, of Payne Wilkirfs the mile P C, was the star for he took first place in the tour events in which he was entered. His victory in the two hurdles alone took 12 points from O A C, while U ot O lost but three points. Two things conspired to bar O A C from second place. The miserable act of Kerrigan, judge of the walk, in disqualifying Huffman, and the unfortunate circumstance of a spectator inter fering with Stimpson at the fin ish of the mile run. Huffman is considered the crack walker of the northwest and has covered the mile in 7:43. He had no one to compete with Saturday, and the mile was made in 8:13. Still Kerrigan cautioned Huff man in the first quarter where the pace was yery slow and finally disqualified him. This took one point from O A C. In the mile run, Stimpson was fin ishing a good third. When within ten feet of the tape, a. too sympathetic admirer caught him Elizabeth Taylor. The death of Mrs. Elizabeth Tay lor occurred in this city May 31, 1900. Funeral services were held in the Christian church last Sun day and were conducted by Rev. L. F. Stephens. The remains were interred in the Odd Fellows' ceme tery. Mrs. Taylor was born in Porter county, Ind., March 29, 1847, and was a little more than 53 years of age when death overtook her. Her maiden name was Harlan and at an early age she went to Iowa with her parents. Here she resided the greater part of her life. She was married in Cass county, Iowa, Sep tember 4, 1870, to R. L. Taylor and there resided until August, 1889, when they came to Oregon. Early in February last she be gan to suffer from a fibrous tumor and in April Mr. Taylor took her to the Good Samaritan hospital, Portland. After an examination the surgeons concluded that it was useless to operate on her, so she was brought home to await the inevi table. Until the last month her suffering was not acute, but just prior to her death ehe underwent great pain. Her husband and four children survive her, and were all at her bedside to the last. The children are Mrs. OHie Baldwin, Roy Walter, Chester and Harlan, the youngest being 15 years old. During lite Mrs. Taylor was a good Christian woman and made niady friends who will be sad in deed to learn of her death. She had been a faithful follower of the Chris tian church doctrines for the past 35 years. j o-nut for pies and all pastry onoe used, always used ; for sale at Zierolf's.

In former issues of this paper ar ticles have appeared on the Belgian hare industry, now gaining ground in different sections of the state. There has been quite a considera ble inquiry as to cost of production and percentage of profit arising from a venture at the rearing of the "Leporine. Local interest has caused one of our townsmen, John Simpson, to engage in the business and he now has a rabbitry started on a small scale. His son, Eugene, who is at present in San Francisco, recently sent three Belgian hare to Corvallis as a starter. . They are of the finest breeding and have pedigrees. In California the rais ing of Belgian hares seems already to be looked upon as an industry of great promise, and people are readi ly engaging in it, -both as a means of profit and pleasure. Breeding as rapidly as the Belgian hare does, it will only be a short time before Mr. Simpson will have a rabbitry established in Corvallis that will be of interest to many citizens, inso much that it will demonstrate the profitable side of the industry. Eugene Simpson has written his parents that he will be home dur ing the summer and he and his father calculate to give the Belgian hare business a most thorough test.
