The concert given at the col
lege chapel, Saturday evening:,
usder the arspices ef the societies
of that institution, was the ina
sical event of the season, and
the equal of any purely musical
progiam heard in Corvallis. The
numbers were all from the works
of the masters, with the ex
ception ef the compositions of
Rutkyn Turney, and these
suffered little by comparison.
With the first number, the
piano solo "The Star - Spangled
Banner" (Concert Paraphrase) by.
Troyer, Mordaunt Goodnough
wen the favor of his audience,
and their delight grew as the
program proceeded. Mr Geod
nough has a "glibaess" of touch,
brilliancy of technique and mas
terful grasp of interpretation
which plaee him in a class with
artists many years his senior.
His readition of Moszkowoki's
'Valse Brilliante" in A-flar,
was accorded a double encore.
There is an artlessness in the
manner of Miss Mabel Cronise
which adds charin to her efforts
oa the concert program. Her
rendition ef Gounod's "Tell Me
Beautiful Maiden" was accom
plished with such ease and absence
affectation, as to command ad
miration. While not powerful or
possessed of the dramatic quality,
her vole is sympathetic, and
under perfect control, and her
interpretation is artistic.
Rathyn Turney was tendered
an ovation at his first appearance,
and at the conclusion of his first
number, his ewn difficult and
Deauuisi "antasie," ne was
f iven an enthnastic recall. His
playing is of nature which "takes
hold" of an audience and the more
he is heard the greater he is ap
preciated. The "Mazurka de
Concert," by Musis, which
makes such demands upon the
technique, was performed with
consummate skill. At times the
notes seemed searcely more than
whispers, and when the bold
voice of the G string resounded
like that of the trombone, one
could Scarcely believe that the
same instrument was capable of
of such variety of sound.

Greatest Mistake of all." On Wed
nesday evening: "Supreme Real
ities." Monday the government com
menced the long deterred payment
to the Siletz Indians of the pur
chase price of the resevation lands
for which, at its last session, Con
gress appropriated $85,0 .0 says the
News. The rate per capita will be
19fT46. The payment will be
made alphabetically and the settle
ment of estates of deceased Indians
will be taken up last. We under
stand, that the settlement of quite
a number of these estates will be
held up on account of irregularities
of the administration thereof, . The

Numerous cases or poisoning
due to drinking "loaded" apple
cider are coming to light and in
vestigation is being prosecuted.
Home of this cider, known to have
been manufactured at fcalem, is
being analyzed at the Agricultural
College, by the station chemists.
and as soon as the State Dairy and
Food Commissioner has received
hU raturu, he will attend to the
manufacturer who placed it oa the
market. There are those who
bulieve that the cider was rendered
poinoniou3 by having been shipped
and handled in unclean vessels,
but chemist Kniseley has found the
elder contained sodium fluoride,
deadlv poisoa. The drug was used
bv tbe manufactures for the pur
tyyta of preserving t'9 cider. The
(.ymptouos of thoe whs partook of
this leverage are mose oi poison
fnirrialent oramps,followed by
vomitine. The reason no fatilities
are reDorted in connection with the
cases is that only sma'l amounts of
tbe cider were taken into the ttom
bucket of water.
The jury awarded a verdict of
of $325 for the planitiff in the case
of Luckey vs Lincoln county which
was tried in Lane county last week.
The action was for $5,000 damages.
The jury is said to have stood six
for the defendant on the first ballot.
Two weie in favor of $1000, and
the other four were scattered in
sums ranging from $1C0 up. The
jury finally added the total amounts
together and devided by 12, and
the $323 verdict was the result.
The county will probably appeal
the case to the Supreme Court.
