Citizen Dabler, according to re-
ports, which it is said were heard
by all in his neighborhood, came
near getting a blowing up one day

shocked, but entered to investigate
the origin of the disturbance. Cit

but open-eyed wonderment at the
remnants of what had been a cook-
stove, in a room filled with smoke
and ashes. '"Where do you get your

account for the explosion, while
others hold to the therry that it was

Last Monday evening a number

evening's program. ' '-
The Webfeet Were Ia It.
'Horner Angell, of The Dalles,
and Dick Smith, another Oregon
graduate, went to Columbia Uni
versity, New York, to study law,
says a recent issus of the Tele
gram." Although, greatly inter
ested ia football work, the two
VVebfeit decided not to partici
pate in the sport, but confine'
their energies to Blackstone.
However, they wandered to the
sidelines each evening and
watched the vasrity and "scrub"
elevens - at practice. Some of
the flippaiit easterners learned ot
the football renown of the two
Oregon lads, and passed light
rainarks in their presence tell
ing them if they, were such
"crackajacks" they had better
enter the game. This offer the
the boys declined with thanks,
but the Columbia roosters took
up the cry of "cold feet," at
which our boys' promised -to
come oat jast tor one practice.
When they appeared on the
field next afternoon the Colum
bians gave them the "ha-ha."
They immediately sized Smith
up as a big "stiff," iu college
parlance, and Angell, who has
but one hand, was jast a com
mon "mark." The coach set
the Oregonians oa the "scrub"
team, and both immediately dis
tinguished themselves by mag
nificent defensive work. When
the "scrubs" took the ball, it
was passed back to Smith, who
was playing half-back. With
out waiting for interference, he
broke through varsity line and,
giving the "straight-arm"" to
half a dozen men. rushed tip al
most the entire length of the
field and made a touch down.
He was able to outran the
swift men behind the Columbia
line and scored on the varsity,
something that isn't often done
in a big college. The players,
coachers and rooters immedi
ately swarmed about the Eugene
man and began ' to feel Ms mus
cles and eye him in perfect won
derment. When asked if there
were any more in Oregon like
him, Smith replied; . "The
woods are full of 'em." Smith
has positivelly declined to' play
any more football, but says.he
just wanted to show the eastern
ers that Oregon wasn t so slow.
Had Considerable Fan.
Corvallis . boys had consider
able fun on hallowe'en night,- at
least to judge from the. reports
coming from our neighbor town.
One party made up of promi
nent young men, well known in
Albany, made a raid on a
chicken house and ' just about
the time they emerged from the
hen roost with an armful of
fancy Plymouth Rocks, a special
officer appeared on Ahe scene and
escorted two ot the boys to the
calaboose. The rest 6f the crowd
suddenly made themselves scarce.
The next morning , the two cap
tives appeared in the Police
Court and entered a plea of
guilty and the Judge assessed
them each $10 and. costs for
their fun. The boys were over
to' Albany the other night and it
cost them several boxes of candy
and all kinds of trinkets to quell
the good natared disturbance.
