A Quiet Wedding.
At the residence of Nortan R.
Adams in this city on Monday
evening, bv Rev. Mark Noble,
Newton Adams and Miss Anna
L. Crawford were united in
marriage in the presence of im
mediate' relatives and friends.
Mr. Adams and Miss Crawford
loved each other when as boy
and girl they attended school to
gether backv in Illinois and al
though separated for a number of
years by thousands of miles, that
love had its fruition in matri
mony. Mis Crawford came here two
weeks ago from Bloomington,
111., and is a very estimable young
lady, womanly and unassuming.
Mr. Adams is a member or tne
firm of Adams Bros., contractors
and builders, he is industrious,
and is held in high esteem by
a wide circle of friends. The
bride was attired in a dainty
gown of cream organdie .and
carried a bouquet of cream roses.
Mr. and Mrs. Adams will reside
in Corvallis. a cottage will be
erected immediately for the pur

The court decides that the
word "may" as used in section
3389 of the code is simply per
missive, and not intended by the
legislature to be mandatory, as
'shall. This leaves the matter
of transferring a child to another
district wholly to the sound dis-
cretion of the school directors.
Yates & Yates appeared for the
defendant district and W. & Mc-
Fadden for the plaintiff. ; ?
Here is a little problem that
farmers may figure but for ' them
selves.- It is a practical demon
stration that swine may be raised
with profit and buy feed.. Smith
& Boulddn four weeks ago bought
8 stock hogs, weighing 1005 lbs.
paying 5 cents live weight or
$5275 which was, ij cents
above the Portland market, so
they decided "to feed them for a
raise in the price. They fed 13
sacks of shorts at a cost of $13.15
The hoes when slaughtered
weighed 13 10 pounds, a eain oft
105 pounds and were sold at 6
cents, amounting to $78.60, a
profit of 12.70. If the hogs
had been weighed before being
killed, the weight would have
been nearly 500 pounds, that is
2 pounds ot shorts costing 1
cents will make 1 pound of pork
at 6 cents.
The lecture of John Sobieski,
on Wednesday evening at the
Christian church was well attend
ed and highly appreciated by -all
who heard him. The personal
ity of the speaker was very im
pressive .and striking, being a
large man with a voice very
deep and resonant. Mr. Sobie
ski belongs to a line of Polish
princes and had it not been for
the . partition of his country
nearly a century ago, he would
have been in direct line for suc
cession to the throne. He is de
voting his life to the cause of
temperance, and gave a very un
biassed presentation of the sali
ent points of his subject.
Automobile men are having
trouble enough, the latest coming
from Lebanon where two boys
were thrown from a buggy by a
frightened horse and nearly
killed. The operators of the
machine paid no heed to the
horse and buggy and the frantic
animal plunged, into a roadside
ditch, throwing the occupants of
the buggy, two boys, in such a
way- as to knock one of them in
sensible and break the arm of the
