a few days in this city, visiting
relatives, last week. Some ten
years ago he lost the sight of his
left eye, while working in a black
smith shop, by a piece of iron strik
ing across the eye, and one day

pain in his eye, and presently,
found that he could distinguish ob

and when he came to this city, he
could see almost as well as ever
with the injured eye.

signes of uneasiness just before
reaching the end of the journey,
but gave no trouble whatever.

Who Is He?
The following item taken from
the Albany Herald will prove
of interest, no doubt, to several
of the young ladies of this city
and will furnish an excellent op
portunity for those who disdain
to appear i iterested in the mat
ter, to do some guessing:
A good item concerning a well
known Corvallis attorney has
just come to light The alore
sa'.d lawyer is unmarried, tall,
good looking, and has a great
many lady friends. A hubbub
was created in our sister town j
recently by a beautiful piece of J
jewelry being sent to the lawyer,
presumablv ,from Albany. He
winked, but said not a word.
His initials, 'E. E. W.," were
handsomely engraved upon the
treasure and the indications were
that he had a very close lady
friend in this city. Several Cor
vallis young ladies were on the
point of complete collapse and
the attorney evidently enjoyed
the situation and aided the Alba
ny girl theoiy. Even some went
so far as to say that he had given
out the tip first in that direction.
Things were rather tropical aal
the Corvallis eligibles commenc
ed a campaign to learn the truth.
They wanted to find out who
was the lucky Albany dame and
various other things. A search
ing investigation in this citv re
vealed the fact that the attorney
had purchased the present him
self and had it mailed to Corval
lis. This story is a strict secret,
and we cannot give the name of
the attorney for that reason.

Speaking ot the occasion, the
Ashland Tidings says: "In the
growing list of December wed
dings, that of Mr. Claude A.
Riddle, a newspaper man of
Grants Pass, and Miss Mayme
Issacs, of Medford, is among the
most felicitous. The ceremony
occurred at 3 o'clock in the
afternoon, and was performed by
Rev. S. H. Jones, of Jackson
ville. Taiteful decorations of
ivy and chrvsanthemums greeted
the principals and attending
guests, ana at tne conclusion ot
the ceremony, which made the
twain one, a bountiful wedding
lunch was served. Mr. and
Mrs. Riddle took the evening
north bound train for Grants
Pass, where they will reside."
Claude attended the Atrripnl-
iiaral College in this city for
several years. At tne time he
left college he was the printer of
the College Barometer. He is
quite well known here and a
wide circle of friends extend
congratulations and good wishes
to ootn nimseit ana bride.
