David Keen, who will be remeni

cripple who earned a livelihood
hereabouts last spring sawing wood,
was robbed ot $40 at his home in
Forest Grove last Saturday night.
He put his money, $40.56, into the

parties in search of treasure. - Miss
Florence Akin is agent there and,
at her request, the company had
relieved her for a brief vacation
during the holidays and a person
was installed in her place durinst
her absence. While She was away
the thief, or thelves, broke in
through a window in the office and
succeeded in burstlfig the safe open.
everything about tbe office was
ransaoked, and for all of this trou
ble and risk they were rewarded
with three cents three insienifi-
cant cents. While 'nothing serious
resulted from this attempted rob

"An American in Cuba," is an un-r
fortunate selection. While : the
play itself has considerable merit,
it exposes all; the weak points in
the company, and shows " every
player to disadvantage. "The
Black Flag" is better adapted to
the cast, Mr. Seeley being at; his
best in this production, while Miss
Sutton and Mr. Bassett appear to
good advantage. N"The Circus
Girl," which is really our old friend,'
"Arabian flights," gives the com!
pany its best opportunity,' and if
a repertory of plays-of this caliber
were offered, ' the management
would meet with greater success
both with productions and at the

Manager Strong oMha Corval
lia Sawmill Co., tells a. rather
amusing little incident that hap
pened recently at Dilley, where
his son, Harold, is managing the
mui recently purchased bv the
company. A dam had been
built in 4he Tualatm river at
that point, and the farmers of
the vicinity believing that their
property was being damaged by
the overflow oaused by the dam,
decided to buy that obstacle,
which they did, paying $r,6oo
for it. It was their intention to
have it removed, bit Mr. Strong
objected as its- presence was
necessary to provide water for
floating logs. B constant vig
ilance, Harold prevented the
purchasers from destroying the
dam, but basiness in CorvaUis
compelled him to be absent a few
days and while ha was away,
someone blew the dam np with
dynamite. While some inrvm-
venienee will be experienced at
present the mill company will
not suffer much as thev intend
moving their plant to Dallas,

that the dam caused nronertv to
