bodied beggars of their type.

affair. Mrs. Berchtold, Mrs. Pet
erson, Misses Marie Peland, Edna
Allen, Marie Cathey, Gertrude Mc
Bee, Hettie Lilly, Marian Chappell,

WiLLARD COMPANY STRONG.
Engagement Commenced Last
Night in the Opera House.
"A , Western Gentleman' at
the opera house last night was a
decided success. It is sometimes
hard to write up the details of a
play, just as it is for a cartoonist
to portray an individual who has
no distinguishing features, and
this is one of those cases. The
company is so well balanced that
it is - difficult to. . say anything
about them without saying a
great deal. - MtJ Willard is a
talented actor, and the company
is of the very best material, all
excellent actors and actresses.
Tonight they are to play "The
Bells," one of Sir Henry Irving' s
great plays. . The" indications
are that the house will be crowd
ed, so you had better secure seats

A Word About Pipe Organs.
The Kimball Pipe Organ,
which has been brought to Cor
vallis by Piof. Taillandier for an
Organ Concert to be given on
May 25th, is a novelty in more
than one way. The action or
mechanism, employed in the
Kimball Organs is a revolution
in organ ; building. If is
Duplex Tubular Pneumatic
throughout, including key action
(both manual and pedal), stop
action and couplers.
One of the practical advantages
is the compactness. By doing
away with the old style action
with trackers, stickers, levers,
squares and all the other acces
sories necessary in the old track
er action much room is gained.
The organ, now in the College
Chapel, with its hundreds of
of pipes would occupy double the
space were it not tor the tubular
pneumatic action employed solely
in the Kimba'il Pipe Organs.

When it comes to clerical
ability he has no superior in the
county and if elected all county
business coming to him will be
attended promptly and satisfac
torily to all. Is there any good
reason why he should not be
enthusiastically voted to the of
fice by the republicans of Benton?
He is as deserving as any man
and republicans should . take a
pride in giving a worthy young
man a start in life.
