tunities afforded for pleasure-seekers
tomorrow. One is the grand
picnic at Calloway's grove, and the
other is the excursion to the bay,
given by the O A C students. The
train will leave Corvallis at 6:15 a.
The Corvallis Orchestra will furn
ish the music for the O A C com

insure good music, as there are
eight members in the orchestra and
they have had sufficient practice on
concert music to handle the very
best selections.
The annual prize drawing ot the
San Francisco Examiner has taken

The census enumerators are as
busy as bees and are about early

to be enumerated are not a great
distance apart.

the 3rd and continue two days.

A Bad Accident.
All old-timers will remember
Johnny Goins, who for a long time
was in the delivery business in this
city. He has been the victim of a very
unfortunate accident as related by
the Albany Herald of the 12th
inst: Just before noon yesterday
John Goins, son of Ed Goins, one
of the proprietors of the Magnolia
mills, was working at the top of
the big wheat bins, and while cross
ing over one of the bins he stepped
on an old iron pipe which was lay
ing across the bin, his foot slipped
and he fell to the bottom of the
empty bin, a distance of about 12
feet, striking on the side of his head,
cutting a deep gash in the side of
his head and almost severing one of
his ears. It was a very difficult
task to get him out of the deep bin.
A block and tackle was fastened to
the top gilts in the mill and he was
hoisted out in that manner, and
taken home. Dr. W. H. Davis was
called and atteuded him. He was
severely hurt, but will probably recover.
For some time the residents of
this city have been fully satisfied
that a wedding was pending, but
the majority of them were ignorant
of the identity of the contracting
parties. Wednesday evening in
the presence of some twenty guests,
consisting of relatives and friends,
E. F. Bryant and Mrs. Anna S.
Fisher were united in matrimony
at the residence of the bride's par
ents, Mr. and Mrs. E Walden, of
this city. Rev. H. Gould, formerly
of this city, but now stationed at
Lebanon, was in attendance and
tied the nuptual knot. The cere
mony took place at 8:30 o'clock,
and after many and sincere con
gratulations the contracting couple
and their guests repaired to the
dining room where a most elabor
ate spread awaited them. The par
lors were most beautifully decora
ted. Mr. and Mrs. Bryant were
the happy recipients of many valu
able and costly presents.
The bride is a native daughter of
Oregon, and is well known here.
She was elegantly attired in rich
and costly silk, while the groom
was dressed in the customary black.
Mr. Bryant is a Nebraska man,
but for eight or ten years he has
been a resident of this state. For
three years past he has held a posi
tion in the First National Bank of
this city and he will continue in
his present position. During his
residence here he has made many
friends and is looked upon as a
worthy citizen of the place. For
the present the newly united couple
will make their home with the
bride's parents. A host of rela
tives and friends join in good wishes
and congratulations.

Corvallis Will Celebrate As She Never
Celebrated Before.
On July 4 tli, 1900, Corvallis is
is to have the grandest celebra
tion in her history. In the lan
guage of Adams, this great an
niversary festival is to be com
memorated "with pomp and
parade, with shows, games,
sports, guns, bells, bonfires and
illuminations." Over $800 will
be at the disposal of the commit
tee having the matter in hand
and the posters announcing the
event will contain the display
line "2-days-a" for the celebra
tion will include the 3rd and 4th
of July.
No better opportunity has ever
been offered for a successful ob
servance of the day. No city
nearer than Eugene will cele
brate, and Corvallis will be the
Mecca for all patriotic citizens
for a radius of thirty miles.
The program has not been ar
ranged in detail, but a splendid
list of horse and bicycle races is
scheduled for the third. On the
fourth hose races, athletic con
tests, and exciting features will
fill every hour of the day. As
a special attraction, the services
of a troupe of seven bag-pipers
have been secured. A feature
of the program will be a sword
dance, and four brass bands will
furnish a grand carnival of music.
Creditors Object.
A Popular Enterprise .
A business house which is steadi
ly gaining favor is the Corvallis
Commission Store. Under the
management of John Lenger its
field of operation is broadening and
the amount of produce handled is
steadily increasing in volume.
They keep constantly on hand
the celebrated Corvallis and Mon
roe flours, and give with each sack
of the latter a package of Arm &
Hammer soda. Potatoes, bran,
shorts, all kinds of feed stuffs,
chickens, eggs, and, in fact, evciy
thing kept in a first-class commis
sion house is handled by them.
They are also agents for the famous
Lea's Lice Killer.
A case in which the creditors
object to the final account of J.
L,. Aiken, executor in the estate
of Peter Mason, deceased, and
attempt to cut down his charges
as executor about $ 100, to pre
vent him from collecting com
missions, attorney's fees, and to
compel him to charge himself
with a certain . note of $830 and
interest due from himself to de
cedent, has been having a hear
ing before Referee E. E. Wilson
for the past four days. E. R.
Bryson appeared for the creditors
and Attorneys J. H. Wilson and
E. Holgate for the executor.
From the evidence it appears
that some time prior to his death,
Peter Mason took J. E. Aiken's
note for $830, for money borrow
ed by said Aiken, six acres of
land in Lincoln county being
given as security. Mason made
Aiken executor of his will.
After the death of Mason, his
wife yielded up to Aiken the
note, upon the latter' s represen
tation that a contract had been
entered into between himself and
decedent whereby he was to be
released from his debt by deeding
to decedent the six acres of land.
The court, by an ex parte order
released the executor and took a
deed to the land. Afterward
when the land was sold at execu
tor's sale it brought but $25.'
The estate failed to yield revenue
sufficient to satisfy all claims
against it, and the creditors now
hold that Aiken should be held
for the note and interest, and be
deprived of commissions and at
torney's fees.

"Old dog Tray is ever faithful."
Dick Zahn, during his recent visit
to Corvallis, was recounting his ex
periences in the Alsea mountains as
a hunter and his conversation turn
ed to the subject of dogs. He has
five dogs at present, and one of
them has been with him on all of
his hunting expeditions during the
past six or seven years. With this
dog Mr. Zahn has killed sixteen
cougars. The dog. although as
deaf as a post, is still as agile as a
oat and as keen a hunter as ever.
Arthur O. Bowersox.
An Attractive Lot of Lion Coffee Prem
iums in Allen & Woodward's Window.
We frequently hear the claim, "some
thing given for nothing," hut do not
often see an actual demonstration of the
principle, like a display of Lion Coffee
premiums now on exhibition in Allen &
Woodward's display window.
Here are many valuable articles, all
given free for the lion-heads cut from the
Lion Coffee wrappers. These are not
cheap' articles, but comprise clocks, um
brellas, watches, gold rings and jewelry,
besides many things useful and orna
mental in the household, or will be en
joyed by the children. Lion coffee fully
deserves the popularity which it has
gained, because of its superior strength
and flavor.
For some 18 or 20 years Arthur
O. Bowersox had been a resident of
Benton county, and at the time of
his death he was respected by all
who knew him. His death occurred
Monday in Salem and the remains
were interred there Wednesday un
der the auspices of the Odd Fel
lows, of which order he had been
an active member during life.
The deceased was a native of
Ohio, and was aged 36 years when
death overtook him. He owned a
small farm a few miles south of
Philomath. In 1888 he was united
in wedlock to Miss Cetta Arm
strong, a daughter of Mr.- and Mrs.
William Armstrong, of this county.
Six children were the result of this
Death undoubtedly was the re
sult of a kick he received on the
forehead from a horse during
March. Nothing was thought of
it at the time, and until about two
weeks ago Mr. Bowersox seemed as
well as ever. He then became de
ranged and was so violent ' that it
was considered best to transfer him
to Salem for treatment. This was
unavailing and death resulted.
There are many friends and ac
quaintances in this vicinity who
heartily sympathize with the be
reaved relatives.

j-ROCERY selling in a depart
ment store no longer attracts
attention because of its novelity,
but for the reason that the best of
food products costs less there than
the exclusive grocer charges.
This store is easily in the lead in
this respect. Our grocery de
partment is appreciated by well
posted buyers because it offers an
opportunity to supply the family
needs in this line at closest prices.

Whenever you find a
properly organized and
rightly conducted men's furnish

there you will find a successful

goods store furnishings, for they
know they can get correct styles
at close prices. We invite the
attention of our customers to an
especially fine and complete line f
ot neckwear just opened.
iHOE value consists in wear,
style and comfort. If any
of the three are lacking the foot
wear is not good value. Our

our customers will bear out these
statements. We believe this is
the best place for you to buy shoes,
and solicit your patronage,

Every item offered below is proof of
the above assertion.
The quotations are only a very meagre representa
tion of the values which place this store unquestionably
in the lead. This store is crowded with the most com
plete and comprehensive stock of dry goods we have
ever shown. Every line was bought at close prices, and
the goods will be passed along to our customers at the
usual small margin of profit which has made this store
so successful and popular.
The New Spring Parasols
Are Here,
This store offers many attractions to
economical buyers.
A store that relies solely on low prices to win and
hold trade is playing "a losing game." To win such
success as this store is winning it is necessary that the
low prices should represent goods of strictly reliable
quality, Every woman in this city who is posted on dry
goods, and who takes the time to compare goods and
prices will admit that our values are superior. We make
and hold customers by treating them right. We lead;
others follow.
T F you want a stylish spring hat

lars for a name, buy the five dol

UR glove stock is the best
patronized and most popular
in this vicinity, because we make
a constant effort to show a larger
line, and offer better glove values
than any other local dealer. It is
not easy to do a satisfactory kid
glove business. It requires long
experience, careful buying, con
scientious selling and a willing
ness to be content with a small
profit. We recognize all these
requirements and conform to them.
That's why Corvallis women can
get better gloves here for the
price than elsewhere.
