Notwithstanding the advance cost of cotton and all cot
ton goods we aim to make this the greatest sale of depend
able daintily trimmed nndernmslins that have ever been
placed on the counters of any Corvallis store. How can we
give you such values you ask. Because we sell such im
mense quantities that we buy our garments at a much lower
price than smaller dealers who cannot use such large lots.
These garments bear the label of the National Consumers'
League which is a guarantee that they are made in light,
clean, airy, wholesome factories, etc.

1' There came near being a hot
time in Grant Elgin's harness shop
Friday night from all accounts. It
seems that Grant has been in the
habit of keeping a box filled with
saw dust near the stove in his place j
of business to do service as a cuspi
dor for friends who gathered there
of stormy days and swapped ex
periences. It must have been that
someone dropped a well lighted
cigar stub in the box ju6t before
the closing hour, for later on Dave
Osburn discovered considerable of a
blaze and went in and put it out.
The cuspidor was on fire. In order
to get in Mr. Osburn was obliged
to force the front doors. It was
lucky matters were no worse. k

day morning received a ten-cent
piece from Thomas C. Gray, the
Sumpter miner who originated the
Alice Roosevelt dowry scheme. Tbe
coin was enclosed in a letter saying
that it was a contribution to ihe
dowry for ''Our Alice." The orig
inal plans were that the contribu
tions should be sent to the State
Treasurer, but since Treasurer
Moore declined to serve as custo
dian, Gray evidently thought to
transfer the honor and responsibili
ty to the Secretary of State. Mr.
Dunbar also declined the honor,
and returned the ten cents to Mr.
Gray with advert to that' effect.
The dowry scheme has met unan
imous disapproval here. These
officials have both taken the proper
view of this crack-brained scheme.

The following story is going
the rounds at the expense of Con
ductor Webster of the Corvallis
The train had just left Stark
street, and the conductor was
making his first round, when he
observed a small white dog with
a bushy tail and bright black
eyes sitting ccsily on the seat be
side a young lady so handsome
that it made his fatherly old
heart, roll over. " But duty was

most deprecatory manner:
''I'm very sorry but it's against

she turned up two lovely brown
eyes at him beseechingly. "What
in the world will I do?"
"We'll put him in the baggage
car and he'll be just as happy as
a robin in Spring."
"What! put my nice white dog
in a dirty baggage car?"
"I'm awfully sorry, miss, but
the rules ot the company are in
flexible." "I think it's awfully mean,
and I know somebody will steal
it," and she showed a half notion
to cry that nearly broke the con
ductors heart, but he was firm
and sang out to the brakeman:
"Here Andy, take this dog
over into the baggage car, and
tell' em to take the best kind of
care of him."
The young lady pouted, but
the brakeman reached over and
picked the canine up as tenderly
as if it were a two-weeks-old
baby, but as he did so a strange
expression came over his face
and he said hastily to the con

a minnte," and he trotted out

a troublesome collection of phlegm which
produces a cough and is very hard to dis

Horehound Symp will at once dislodge
it, and the trouble is all over. I" know
of no medicine that is equal to it, and it -is
so pleasant to take. I can most cor
dially recommend it to all persons need
ing a remedy for throat or lung trouble.
