But there are many things that
conspire against .success in every
event of this nature. However,
figure it any way you will, it seems
that our chances are good. It is
not wise to be over sanguine, but
were we compelled to take one end
of a wager in this matter our choice
would unhesitatingly fall on OAC.
as we know we have a team worthy
any man's confidence. Here's luck

The Pullman football boys pur
chased tbe black . bear of the Cor
vallis Social and Athletic Club and
used it as a mascot in the game
Saturday. Thy had it dressed in
a suit of flaming red (the Washing
ton colors) and the contrast of red
against a black background , was
very Btn king. We are informed
that they paid $30 for bruin, k The
club recently purchased the bear
for $10. ' The reason they bad for
purchasing the new mascot was on
account of the OAC boys stealing a
dog they had brought along to fill
this r .'sponsible'position. However,
tbe OAC boys returned , the dog
before the Pullmanites left the city.
As it was, our ' visitors departed
with their new mascot as well as
the one they brought with them.
It was also thought that they took

The reception yiven Thursday
evening by J. M. NoUn & Son
at their model store, far exceeded
their expectations, according to
what we hear. This statement
appears easy of belief, as no one
wuld have . expected such a
crowd as visited their place of
business on this occasion.
The store was not-thrown open
to the public until 7:30 in the ev
ening, and many were grouped
about the sidewalk aw. iting the
open stsame that should admit
them. It was like fairyland
within. The special decorator of
of the establishment, Cecil Cathey
assisted bv the salesladies and
others abjut the store, had done
their work in up-to-the-minute
art style. Fine goods, electric
lights, vines, 'plants, and manv
other featnres of decoration made

For an hour and a-half our
citizens came and went and the
store was crowded all the time
with those whose special purpose
was to admire the goods on dis
play and tofcrm an idea of the
mammoth stock carried. Many
went to listen to the music of
Turney' s orchestra. All were
graciously received and accorded
a hearty welcome by everyone in
any way connected with the
establishment. More than 600
people called during the evening
and fully this number received
The carbon burned out during
the evening and there was a scurry
for lanterns, candles and matches.
Much merriment ensued for all
concerned during the short period
of darkness. The accident to the
lights was of short duration, as
the connection was soon made,
but the incident was such that
the occasion was rendered even
mors memorable. Shortly after
the hour of 9 the final departure
of guests came and the proprietors
and others at the store were the
recipients of cheerful "good
nights," congratulations, and
hearty prophecies of, a successful
