What is said to be the worst epi-lemic
of sickness since 1889 is being experi
enced in Pittsburg sod physicians esti
mate that thousands ot parsons ara pros
trated by pneumonia, typhoid fever and
especially the grippe. Throughout the
city probably every horns is affected in
some manner sad scarcity of employ in
the large office buildings is seriously
felt. The Pittsburg Railway Company
is having difficulty in manning; its cars
on account of the conducto-s and motor,
men being laid up with grippe. City
Physician Booth says the present epi
demic of grippe exceeds in scope and
severity all but that of 1889 and may yet
break that record, He believes the germs
may have originated far from here, In
1889 tbe malady's start as taced back
through" Europe to Asia and finally lo
cated in Hoagkong, China. .Telegram.
The following table, taken from the
recoidsof the Registrar's office, shows
tbat the students of tbe University of
Oregon come from practically every coun
ty in the State. There are now in at
tendance in the departments at Eugene,
exclusive of music, 400 students. That
they are not from the homes of the rich,
is shown by tbe fact tbat nearly 70 of
them are either wholly or partially earn
ing their own way. Most of them are
registered from the smaller cities of tbe
state that support good high achcole.
The following counties are represented:

In addition to the lectures and practi

The evil of the treating babit is little
understood by those who sre total ab
stainers. To those who frequent clubs
and bar-rooms tbe treating sceae is fami
liar. A half dozen friends meet and one
s uggests s drink in which all join. They
stand at the bar a few moments to talk
a nd a second member of the group pro
poses another di ink. Then each of the
others feels the desirs to show his spirit
of hospitality and no one of the crowd
will take the chance of giving offense by
declining to drink. Thus six glasses of
liquor sre costumed each where one, at
the most, would have sufficed if each bad
paid for bis own drink. Mors than that,
but for the treating babit it is likely that
the first drink wonld not have been pro
posed, There would be little drunken
ness in t be world if men drank only be
caussthey want the liquor and not be
cause they ara asksd to loin in a ''social"
glass. OregoBtaa.
Jack London.
On his way around the wsrld for the
Woman's Home Companion Jack Lon
don visited the lepers of Molokai on
the island ol Hawaii.
"Leprosy is not so contagious as is
imagined," writes Mr. Loaden in the
January Woman's Home Companion.
"I went ior s week's visit to the Settle
ment, and I took my wife along all
of which would have not happened bad
we had any apprehension of contracting
the disease. Nor did we wear long,
gauntleted gloves and keep apart from the
lepers. On the contrary, we mingled
i ree'.y with them, and before we left ko .w
scores of tbem by sight and name. Tbe
precautions of simple cleanliness seem
to be all tbat is necessary. On returning
i to their own houses, after bavin been
among and handling lepers, the non
lepers, such as the physicians and the
superintendent., meiely wash their faces
and hands with mildly antiseptic soap
and cfaangd their coats".

His offense is assault upon the
person of his three, daughters,
wb are all young women.
According to the story it seems
that Harmon called his daugh
ters to get upTuesday morning,
saying that unless they were
downstairs in ten minutes he
"would - be ' ud there." The
girls arose hurriedly and began
to dress but before they were
ready to go down their father en
tered their room and began slash
ing at them right arid left with a
buggy whip. Not satisfied with
raising welts on their shoulders
that stood out like whip cords for
hours afterwards, be attacked his
eldest daughter -with his fists,
beating her about the head until
her face was disfigured and her
hearing impaired.
Tbe girls appealed to Police
Wells for piotection and Har
mon was at once arrested, as
above stated.
The family came here from tbe
East some months aeo and are
located in the Abbott bouse on
Fourth street. The daughters
state that the mother died in the
East about a vear ago. One
girl received a horsewhipping
from her father last summer and
the marks are still to be seen on
her shoulders and back. The
case his caused considerable com
ment and indignation in Corvalli
and the outcome of the affair will
be awaited with more than ordi
nary interest.
Uncle Tom's Cabin" Coming.
Stetson's Great Double Spec
tacular prod action of "Uncle
Tom's Cabin" is booked for next
Monday night at the Opera
House. This grand old drama
has been mercilessly butchered
by the "fly-by-night" companies
iu the past. It is a marvel that
it has not long before this lost its
power ot attracting theatregoers
which is quite often the case with
most plays and even so vvilh pre
ductions other than Stetson's,
but the public has learned to
know tbat Stetson's is always
reliable, that it alone has lifted
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" from me
diocracy to 'mastery. In short,
it is the only company present
ing this time-honored drama with
capital enough to provide suffi
cient scenery, people and rail
road . equipment to place it
among the best entertainments
before tbe public. Stetson is the
only one presenting the drama as
a first-class show should be
environed and equipped. And
known at
no more enjoyable entertainment
will be seen in the local house
than this one. Over fifty peo
ple are used in the produc
tion and with its artistic mingling
of mirth, melody and pathos, all
classes of amusement seekers are
entertained. Specialties galore,
wonderful mechanical effects,
new costumes, a splendid orches
tra, a large pack of Siberian
bloodhounds, pretty little Shet
land ponies, meek-eyed donkeys,
mild and tricky, are in evidence
at every performance. The
street performance is said to
eclipse anything ever given by
a theatrical company and con
tains a scene ot processional nov
elties that will delight every boy
and girl and make even nature
pause to contemplate.
Our store will be closed all day Friday,
January 3rd, to arrange stock for our
