Portland Medics No Match for
Farmers in Saturday's Game.
C xper,
The Oregon Agricultural Col
lege tootball team defeated the
team of the Portland Medical
school Saturday on the local field
to the tune of 22 too. The game
from the start on the part of OAC
boys was fast and furious and not
even lor a minute was there any
doubt as to the final outcome nor

position on the line.
In not a single instance did the
medical students have the ball
nearer than 35 yards to their goal .
The final score was obtained in
just 22 xz minutes from the time
of starting. A thunder storm
which had been threatening for
some time, burst forth in fury iust
as the second half of game com
menced and the medics threw up
their hands and said quit.
Not that the M. Ds. did not
play good ball for they did. but
the farmers played better than
they ever played before. Had
the game continued until the end
tie score would have been fully
50 to nothing, for when the game
ended our boys were just getting
into fighting shape while the op
posing team was almost demoral
ized. The medics averaged
greater weight than our own
boys but that weight was not
evenly distributed, the heaviest
man was iully 275 pounds while
the lightest was scarcely more
than 125.
Graves, the monstrous big cen
ter, was a magnificent specimen
genus homo, but was beefy and
no match for the agile Walker
who was fully 85 pounds lighter.
The first touchdown was made
by OAC in three and a half min
utes from the kickoff. The sec
nd in eight minutes and another
that was declared a foul in twelve
minutes, and that way the game
went until the close. The side
liners during the first few clinches
went wild with delight but it
soon became so onesided that in
terest subsided to such an extent
that when the storm broke upon

the scene, spectators
"play ball."
Of course there was some fine
individual playing on the part of
OAC but this would have been
impossible without support of the
team. It is not simply the men
who play to the grand stand that
deserve the honor, for the men
who by their interference make
such playing possible, work just
as hard and are just as deserving
of praise. The one great de
fect of our team is that of
fumbling and it should be stopped.
It seems to be nobody's fault in
particular but it can and ought
to be avoided before we pay
dearly for ir. It may be that all
do not thoroughly understand
the signals, or the quarter does
not give them out clearly enough
or the masks that some of the
boys wear on their heads inter
fere with their he.iriugor there is
not enough time between the
signal and the play for all to
grasp it, but this is certain the
fault ought to be corrected at
once. In one instance the whole
team went off and left the ball
lying on the ground, but it was
luckily seen in time to save it
With this one exception the
OAC team is in magnificent
shape and if increasing honors
do not interfere with regular prac
tice we stand as good a show for
the championship as any team in
the league.

a giant in stature and frame was

two sons and three daughters.
The two sons died in infancy and
a daughter, Mrs. Sidney McCoy,
died at Oakdale, Washington,
April 7th. 1895, triumphant in a
living faith. Those who survive

On April 3d. i8;x she started
from Iowa with her husband and
two children to make the long
journey to Oregon with an ox
team, arriving in Waldo Hills,
Marion countv in September of
the same year, later moving to
Benton county, where she took
an active part in the foundation
of the present prosperous com
munity of Philomath and vicini
ty. She bore the difficulties of
frontier life with rare courage and
cheerfulness and was always anx
ious for the welfare of those
around her.
She was converted at Sugar
Creek camp ground Iowa in 1840
and it seems that we still hear
the shouts of that happy little
girl as she went tripping through
the grounds with a countenance
bright with heavenly joy. She
joined the Methodist church but
after removing to Oregon she
cast her lot with the United
Brethren church and remained a
true and laithful member until
her death.
. She was a true and faithful
wife and mother always endeavor
ing to do good to others and make
those happy around her. She
reared her children in the fear
and admonition of the Lord and
her example to others has always
been godly.
For the past seven years she
has been a great sufferer but
through it all she has remained
calm and submissive to the
Master's will. A few hours be
fore her death with some of her
loved ones around her she par
took of the last sacrament and
bade farewell to the weeping ones
around her.
A short service was held at the
residence by H. F. Neff, presid
ing elder and F. W. Jones col
lege pastor. The burial took
place in Pleasant Valley cemetery,
a beautiful spot near where she
had spent nearly fifty years of
her life. It was the request of
the deceased that Bishop Castle
preach her funeral. Bishop Castle
has been a life-long friend of the
family but is away at present but
at some luiure time a memorial
service will be held.
The funeral procession was one
ot the longest ever seen in Ben
ton county as the family is wide
ly connected and favorably known
in this part of the Willamette
"A Friend."
Having completed the prelim
inary survey for the electric
lines in Lane county the com
pany proposing to construct the
Corvallis-Eugene line holds a
mass meeting of Eugene citizens
tonight to discuss future plans.
A similar meeting will be called
here in the near future.
Moses Bros, are busily engaged
in remodelling the interior of the

expect to make it a first-class

Along with this comes a new line
of Morris chairs, fine rockers,
good mattings and a complete
line of pictures of the best grades
such as has never been seen in
