ents. In the coarse of a week Mr.
Reis will go to Portland, from which
place he will start on the road for a
wholesale house. - His route will
take him through Idaho and that
section of country. An interesting
item in connection with their jour
ney to this city is the fact - that be
fore leaving Bandon, Mr. and Mrs
Reis shipped two trunks and a box
to Corvallis in Lee Henkle s name.
Their effects did not arrive at the
time they should, and it later davel
oped that they were- held in Port-
land with quite a bill against them
and that either a trunk or the box
was brokeB. This matter has been
satisfactorily straightened oat.
Oar Citizen's Refuse to Be Divided oil
- the Question of Enforcement of Laws.
Tbe result of Monday's election
seems to give general satisfaction ;
and, with all the candidates good
and law abiding citizens, it would
seem that the result could not be
other than satisfactory. While
therejwere two tickets Jn the field,
they presented exactly, the same
list of candidates with the excep
tion of one councilman in each
ward. Each ticket t declared for
"Law and Order," more in jest
than in earnest apparently, for the
people of this community are a
unit for good laws and their en.
forcement, and in no city in the
state is there less reason for a moral
crusade. The very fact that all the
candidates in Monday's election
were reputable business men is evi
dence of this.
That visitors to our city are im
pressed with the purity of our
moral atmosphere, it is only neces
sary to repeat the words of Col.
Holt, the noted ' evangelist who
conducted a series of revival meet
ings at the M. E. church last De
cember. In conversation with the
Gazette man, Col. Holt said:
"No town in the state of Oregon
has had : more unjust calumny
heaped npon it than has Corvallis.
From the reputation of-youi oity,
gained abroad, I expected to find a !
little hall on earth here. Imagine
my jiurpriae, when I learned from
personal experience that the moral
atmosphere of this community was
That there is room for improve
ment in eur social conditions no one
will deny, but any attempt to or
ganized crusade ormake an issue
of something which does not exist
is bound to terminate .in a farce
That is why everyone was in the
best of J humor Monday, and all
havejbeen laughing ever siuce.
"Improve the morals of the indi
vidual, and the moials ot the com
munity will take care of them
selves," is the axiom of the practical
The churches of Corvallis, the
agricultural college, the various lit
erary and religious societies', and
the fraternal orders, each in its
proper sphere, are exerting an in
fluence which gradually but surely
is making this the cleanest and
most desirable residence city in
Otegoa. ; IT is to the credit of the
entire community that there is no
talk of a movement to ' counteract
this influence. , . When there is such
a movement it will be time to put
up a "Law and Order" ticket.
The result of the election Monday
is as follows:
Mayor, M, S. Woodcock, no oppo
sition, 372 votes. .,1 - r

Team Rhus Away.
Rube Kigfer's team got away
from him early yesterday morn
ing and took a little spin. Mr.
Kiger was hauling some old
bridge lumber home from a point
near the Fischer flouring mill
and just as he was going up a
slight rise ol ground the double
trees broke. This lei the team,
which is quite spirited, bolt
ahead, and sooner than take the
risk of being pulled off the wagon
Mr. Kiger let go the reins, but
not before his hands were some
what skinned- and blistered.
The wagon rau back down the
decline and the team came on to
town at a lively gait. They ran
down First street and by the
time they had arrived at the
planing mill had slackened speed
considerably. George Kisor,
who was at work in the rear end
of the brick livery stable, chanc
ed to see the horses and bv run
ning cross-lots caught them.
The whole affair terminate! in a
very lucky manner nobody was
seriously injured, not even a
horse, and the extent of the
damage can be remedied with

Struck a Cable.
Tuesday, while assisting to
bring a raft of logs down the
river from near Harrisbnrsr to
the Corvallis Sawmill. William
Beckwith had a narrow escape
from what might have caused
death. : Everything went well
with the rafting party until they
reached the Stalbuseh place, a
few miles above this city, where
it seems there was a cable stretch
ed across the river, so low that it
caught on the corner of the raft.
The raft, of logs, moving as it
was, lightened the cable until
the tensioa was very great, when
it suddenly -freed itself, and
whether Mr. Beckwith was struck
by the rebounding cable or in the
shock lost: his balance and fell,
is not known. At any rate he
fell down oa the raft "and was
rendered unconscious for .quite
awhile. For a time much anx
iety-was experienced regarding
his recovery. However, he was
about as usual the next day and
felt none the wrse for his mis
hap. Ribbon Sale.

Flower to cleanse out the system
and stop ; fermentation of uadi
gested food, regulate the action ef
the liver, stimulate the nervous and
