There was a spelling contest last
Friday afternoon at the public
school, between grades four and
five. A book was offered as a prize
for the winning pupil, and a picture
as a prize to adorn the room of the
grade that won. Both prizes went
to the fifth grade, after quite a bat
tle. A number of patrons of the
school were present on this occasion.
It's just like this: If a mackin
tosh will do you a little good, three

good. They are going at any old

money over next season than the
mackintoshes, and they won't keep
this Oregon mist off your baek
lying on our shelves. The time to
buy is when the other fellow is
anxious to sell; that is. just the
frame of mind we are in right now.

A Concerted Effort Being; Mads to Divide
the College T.-n-n Seeks to Annsx a
Portion of Bcutou.
If ever a community was con
fronted with issues that would
test its metal to the utmost, the
people of Corvaliis constitute that
community, and there is every
evidence that it will prove equal
to the emergency. These issues
involve the welfare of the city,
county and state. To consider
them, meetings of prominent
Dusiness men ana otners were
held in the parlors of the First
National Bank, Friday and Sat
urday evenings of last week, and
a mass- meeting has been called
for tomorrow night at the court
The matter of most vital im
portance to be given attention is
the proposed division of the
State Agricultural College. A
concerted effort to this end is be
ing made by the Union county
delegation in both houses. Bills
have been introduced in the house
by McAlister, and in the senate
by Wade, to secure the location
of the "Eastern Oregon Agricul
tural College" at Union, the real
purpose of which is to secure one-
half of the funds now appropriat
ed by congress for the support of
tne btate Agricultural College
and experiment .station. They
ask an appropriation of $60,000
for - buildings, and $10,000 an
nually for maintenance, and
want a board of nine regents to
take charge of the institution. So
determinened and insidious is
this attack upon this great insti
tution, that the public and press
knew nothing of themovement
until the introduction of the bill
in the senate on the 23rd, al
though the original bill had been
read in the house as early as the
At the meeting in this city.
Saturday evening, committees
were appointed to represent the
people in guarding the welfare of
the college m this emergency.
The sentiment of those present is
embodied in the following ex
pression by Senator Daly which
appeared in Sunday's Oregonian:
"it would be-a great blunder for
the state to cause the appropria
tion to be cut down, and the edu
cational interest and labors divi
ded with another. Rather than
maintain two schools, it would be
better to move the whole institu
tion away from Corvaliis, and not
to endeavor to build up a rival
school at its expense and at the
expense of the public, both in an
educational and financial sense."
Another matter of vast im
portance is the movement on the
part gf Linn county to annex a
piece of territory four by seven
miles, from the northern part of
Benton. Councilman Gibson in
formed the meeting that during
a recent visit to Wells, he learned
that a petition had been circu
lated among the residents of that
section, and about one hundred
signatures had been secured.
The inducement offered signers.
was that in the event of the Al
bany bridge becoming a toll
bridge, if they were annexed to
Linn they would be given free
passage over the bridge.
A committee was appointed to
prepare and circulate remon
strances against the proposed leg
islation to be presented to the
legislature. The rank injustice
of robbiner Benton countv.
already one of the smallest coun
ties in the state, of a portion of
her territory, when suoh a move
ment is opposed by practically all
of her citizens, should be suffi
cient to defeat any action of this
kind on the part of Linn county.
A resolution was also adopted
declaring it to be the sense of
the meeting that there is no occa
sion for amendments to the Cor
valiis city charter with reference
to sewers. The latter action was
taken in opposition to a charter
amendment that has passed both
houses which amendment restricts
the powers of the council with
reference to sewers. - Our dele
gates in the legislature have been
apprised of this action, and they
have given assurance that n'oth
ing further shall be done m the
matter until action is taken by
the citizens of Corvaliis.
The act is entitled "An act to
amend sections 137 and 128 of
chapter XI of the Corvaliis city
charter," and was introduced by
A citizens1 meeting will be held at the
court house, Wednesday (tomorrow)
evening at 7:30 o'clock, for the purpose

MlRht Have Been Serious.
While out trouf h the coi n
try, Saturday, buying horses,
William Skip'on narrowly es
caped serious injury. He was
driving a livery team with which
ha was not very well acquainted.
After passing through a farm
gate into the county road he left
the team standing unhitched
while he closed the gate. While
he was in the act of doing so, the
animals started in a trot, and
Wiriain saw visions of a crippled
teair and demolished buggy. He
lit running, ana over-hauled the
outfit just as the horses broke
into a gallop. Running between
the front and hind wheels, he
seized the lines just as the hind
wheel struck his leg and threw
him. As he fell, he caught hold
of the side of the buggy with one
hand, but retained his grip on
he lines with the other. After
being draged some distance he
was able to run the horses into a
fence and stop them without any
Mr. Skipton purchased three
excellent horses Saturday, a span

mal from Chas. Witham. All
three weigh in the neighborhood
of 1,500 pounds each and are five

Prompt and heroic medical
assistance saved the life of Miss
Edna Irvine, Sunday afternoon.
Being troubled with soreness in
her nose, she had appiied a
chloroform liniment which had
been in the house for several
years, lne application caused
some pain, and to allay it, she
reclined upon the lounge, and
inhaled the chloroform evapor
ating from the .bottle. Nearly
an hour later she was found in an
unconscious condition. A phys
ician was summoned immediate
ly, but it was with difficulty that
she was restored to conscious-
nesess. About five o'clock she
suffered a relapse, and her lite
was despaired of. Monday morn
ing she was resting easily, and.
although ske is yet quite weak,
is is coped that her recovery will
be speedy and permanent.
A Turkish Bath.
The announcement that the
Turkish Bath" company will
be seen at the Opera House to
morrow night, will . be ' received
with pleasure by all classes of
our. theatre-goers-. ' The label of
approval has been placed upon
the play by critical audiences
everywhere and the company en
gaged in its production is a capa
ble ct ilection of farceurs. It is
indeed a pleasure to offer sincere
commendation to an organiza
tion so delightfully free from
those features which too often
mar farce comedy, productions
and such an opportunity is offer
ed in speaking of F. A. Wade's
"Turkish Bath" company. This
is the kind of entertainment to
which people can take their
families and the parents and
child laugh together in enjoy
ment. Prices 35c, 50c and 75c:
seats on sale at Daniel's.

Miss Kate Gerhard went to Al
bany Saturday. It is understood
that she will act as maid of honor at
a wedding to occur in that city to
day. A measure said to be very im
portant, inasmuch as divorce cases
are concerned, has been prepared
and introduoed in the legislature.
It is a provision for an amendment
to the code. The particular point
of interest is that it will prevent
people from going into other coun
ties than taeir own, to secure
divorces, as is now the case. When
a wife goes to San : Francisco on a
visit, a husband can skip to Albany
or some other obscure place and
have a divorce and the wife w.ould
not be apprised of the fact until
too lata to try for alimony. The
proposed measure is intended to
check this method of doing busi
ness. A Boy . . -
Or yountr man having a fair education
and desirous of serving ample time to
learn a good trade or profession may find
an opportunity by addressing P. O. Box

cant should be steady and industrious,
spending his evenings at home and not
on the streets or in the various resorts
The trade referred to is along educational
lines, and two or three years spent there
in will afford good educational facilities
for any young man, besides affording
steady employment in all seasons after
becoming competent. One whose home

James A. Cauthorn, whose
death occurred last Thursday
morning, was born July 7, 1838,
in Essex county, Virginia, and
at the time of his death was aged
O2 years, 6 months and 17 days.
When lie was two years of aire
his parents moved to Missouri,
where he crew to manhood.
After his schooling he was em
ployed in his father's store until
1865,. when he crossed the
plains to Oregon. He settled in
this county and for the first three
years after his arrival engaged
in teaching school. He was
county surveyor in 1868, and
two years later he engaged in
warehouse business. In this
business he became one of the
leaders in the handling of grain,
and the commission business in
general. la 1874 he ran far the
office of county olerk against B.
W. Wilson, but was defeated.
Again, in 1895, he entered the
field of politics. This time he
was the democratic nominee for
county judge against W. S. Huf
ford, by whom he was defeated.
A few years ago he was
afflicted with rheumatism. Since
that time he was a great
sufferer t the time of his death
and a grea deal of the time was
unable to walk, even with the
aid of a eane or crutches. His
suffering was intense at times
and were a tax on his endurance
and patience, yet he bore it all
with great fortitude. He made
a trip to California and gave the
mud baths a trial, but after sev
eral months concluded that they
were unavailing and came away.
Later he went to Portland and
placed himself nnder the care of
his brother, Dr. Frank Cauthorn.
At about the time he was
thought to be improving Dr.
Cauthorn' s health failed him and
he was obliged to go to Arizona
in order to recuperate. James
Cauthorn then came back to his
Corvaliis home. Here he re
mained until the end. He was
perfectly willing for the end to
come, for his long period of
suffering had robbed Death of
As a man, James A. Cauthorn
was esteemed by all. He was
honest and upright in all his
business dealings. He appre
ciated and was always courteous
to his friends. As a husband and
father he was always kind and
loving. Aside from his imme
diate family and relatives there
is a large circle of friends who
will often recall his . many esti
mable qualities and regret that
his lot was so hard during his
later years. Thus has another
of the pioneers of this commu
nity been removed from our
midst, and although in a ma
terial form he is absent, his
memory will be ever present
with the living.
