"Johnny Zeis returned home
Wednesday from a three weeks'
absence in California. He made a
short stop at Redding to see his
parents, and then proceeded to San
Francisco for a visit with his
brother, Emil, who was recently
married in that city. Emil has a
position as carpenter in a large es
tablishment in the city, at a salary
of $3 per day. On the return trip
Johnny spent a few days in Port
land. The McCoy Comedy Co. played
to a large and appreciative audience
last night at the Opera House.
The production wa3 the sensational

M. L. Jones, president of the Ore
gon Hopgrowers' Association, says:
The Oregon hop crop for 1900, ap
proximately 80,000 bales, has prac
tically all been marketed. Climatic
conditions were such a? to afford
the hop farmer the opportunity of
putting up a fine quality, and as a
lesult a very large percentage of
the crop brought remunerative
prices. Aside from the early con
tracts of 9 and 10 cents a poand,
the Ciop has been disposed of at an
average price of about fourteen and
one-half cents, which has dis
tributed over $2,000,000 -among the
people of the Willamette valley.
Prof, and Mrs. E. R. Lake and
little sou returned Christmas day
after an absence of several months
from Corvallis. Mrs. Lake and son
have spent most of the time with
relatives at Niles, Mich , going to
Washington something over a
month ago. to join the professor
upon his return from France, where
he has spent the summer and fall
as a representative of the United
States horticultural department.
His business was to give special at
tention to the culture and market
ing of prunes, and he has made an
exhaustive report on horticultural
conditions in Franco to the authori
ties at Washington. The knowl
edge gained by Prof. Lake during
his absence abroad will enable him
to advance materially horticultural
conditions in the state of Oregon.
Beulah church was richly deco
rated last Christmas Eve. Two
neat trees were heavily laden with
presents for a crowded house of
happy children, while over the
altar a cross underneath "A Merrv
Christrots to all," and the little Ln
chapel was daintily testooneci with
evergreens and red, white and blue
ribbons. The address of the even
ing was made by Rev. S. M. Wood;
a program of recitations was fur
nished by the public school children,
assisted in the music by Mesdames
Stella Davis and Nellie Skipton. j andee
The entire entertainment, which
was a brilliant affair that will re
flect pleasantry and and sunshine
in a score of rurrl homes, was un
der the management of the teacher,
Miss Grace Huff, an O A C student,
one of those coming women who be
lieve their holidays belong to the
people they serve.
At the outset, to avoid incit
ing a moral wave, let us state
that the game of chance known
as "raffling" has been given an
honored placa in the moral code
by Dr. Parkhurst and Bishop
Potter. Devotees are immune
from social ostracism. The sim
ple innocence of the pastime,
however, does not detract from
its fascination. So, when it was
announced that a turkey raffle
would occur at a place of emin
ent respectability Christmas Eve,
sundry citizens of p'rominence
availed themselves of a "chance."
It occasioned no surprise when
Attorney E. E. Wilson, remark
able for "his dexterity with the
ivories, won a bird. With that
eaution developed by virtue of
his profession, Mr. Wilson, sunk
his winnings, so to speak, in the
secret arohivesof his office in the
Zierolf building under look and
key, and yielded again to the
temptation of chancing another
throw. Returning an hour later
he was horror stricken at the
discovery that his bird had flown.
A careful and systematic search
resulted in his finding a turkey,
bearing a striking resemblance
So his lost fowl, lyinsr in state at
the Commercial restaurant. Man
ager Chipmau protested that the
bird was the property of Attor
ney J. N. McFadden, bt Mr.
Wilson was bstinase and bore
his prize off in triumph to his
home on College Hill. He had
ju9t completed the task of dress
frig and preparing it for the oven,
when a heavy rap sounded from
the door. The visitor proved to
be Walter Brown, who demanded
his turkey, taken by Mr. Wilson,
be immediately returned. The
attorney apologized, disavowed
any criminal intention, and as
sured Mr. Brown that his prop
erty would suffer no violence.
In the meantime another par
ty of body-snatohers had been at
work. Gedrge Jacobs' turkey
had been surrepticiotisly re
moved from the person of James
Plunkett, who had been en
trusted with i-ts safe keeping.
Mr. Plunketfc is a stranger in
Corvallis, but his description of
the purloiner of whom he had!
gotten a glimpse, tallied closely
with the general make-rip of Mr.
Wilson. That gentleman was
nearing the Commercial with
the turkey, which by the way
was really his own, under his
arm, when George Jacobs
pounced upon him. The attor
ney offered strenuous resistance,
but George and the turkey soon
disappeared in the darkness.
The remainder of the night was
spent in securing searoh war
rants and inspecting stolen tur
keys. While the number of the
latter and the parties implicated
is said to have been shocking,
Mr. Wilson failed to identify
his property. A sequel' which
contained honors for E. E-, is
said to have transpired last
That Corvallis still has a heart
for football was evidenced bv the
which gathered on the
field near Marys river Christ
mas afternoon to witness t,he
game between the Philomath
eleven and Corvallis Light
weights. All ages were repre
seated from the babe in arms to
the decrepit grandfather, yet all
braved the fury of the elements
and shared in the euthusiasm.
This was the the second game
between these teams. The first
of the series was played at Philo
math a few weeks ago and the
team from that city was vic
torious by a score of 7 to o.
The Corvallis boys are all light
weights, but the Philomath lads
.are stocky fellows, with the ex
ception of their center, an urchin
we'ghing 210 pounds. The
skill exhibited by both teams
was somewhat of surprise to
the spectators, who expected to
see anything but scientific foot
ball. The teams are very even
ly matched, but lack of judg
ment on the part of the light
weights' captain iu directing
plays contributed largely So the
result of the game. A sensa
tional run by Tharp near the end
of the first half resulted in a
touchdown, the only scoring
done in this half. Try for goal
failed. In the second half,
Philomath's superior weight and
strength told greatly and her line
plunges netted good gains. Cor
vallis' defensive work when she
held her opponents on their own
one yard line for three downs in
the middle of this half was the
best football of the day. In the
last ten minutes of the play
Philomath secured a touchdown
through an end run, and the game
closed, 5 to 5.
Christmas at Mt. View.
Christmas joys and good oheer
were dispensed with lavish hand
Christmas night ia the Mt. View
school house. The house had
been most tastefully deearated
with evergreen and ferns, while
a huge tree, the center of attrac
tion, graced one corner of the
plaiform. The young people f
the neighborhood had performed
the task well and all dav stood
by to receive the very large
number of gifts that were sent
in. Night had hardly descended
when the lanter is hegi ter twin
kle along all roads to the school
house and soon the room was fill
ed to overflowing. A program,
every part of which was well
rendered, filled up the first part
of the evening.
At the close of the program,
old St. Nicholas made his appear
ance as jovial and nidible as of
yore. In a manner both pleas
ing and entertaining he con
ducted the distribution of the'
presents.. All were remembered
and many of the gifts were of
especial value. At the conclu
sion of this pleasant task the
Molly Saint passed into the hands
of Rev. L. M. Boozer a purse of
$15, a "Christmas gift for him
self and wife from the friends of
the neighborhood. All present
voted it a most enjoyable occasion.
Local Chinatown is much

stated that the presence of the
poison could be readily detected
by boiling a silver coin with the

When asked who, in his opin

He gave no credence to the sng
