UNIQUE LAUNCHING PARTY
Given Monday Night Corvailis
"Young People the- Participants.
A launching party was given
Monday evening in honor of
Miss Maybelle Keady and the
affair will not soon be forgotten
by those who participated in it.
The guests were the young peo
ple of the Baptist choir, and the
destination was to have been
about ten miles down the river.
When five or six miles had
been traversed, how,ever, one of
the engines went on a strike and
the launch was turned back up
stream. The other engine work
ed all right until the launch was
a mile or two from town, in the
vicinity of the pest house, when
it also went "fluey" and the craft
began to drift.
The banks are steep along the
river at this point, the night was
dark and the logs were thick all
about in the surging waters as
the launch tossed about. Not an
oar was to be had and no one
could make the engines do their
work. It is reliably stated that
Hartsock was seen to 'get on his
knees and repeaf'NowI lay me"
with a scared expression on his
handsome face, and that smell
ing salts and palm leaf fans were
in general use among the faint
and fainting female contingent
of the party.
Finally, a sloping bank was
discovered and the men-folks, by
using a pail for a paddle, steered
the wobbly boat near enough to
shore to jump out and grab a
tree and thus drag the drowriing
party ashore. Not a shoe sole
was dampened in the escapade,
but heart failure and . cold feet
were everywhere in evidence and
no one cares to hear about the
trip, just now.

Corvailis Women Neglect a Duty.
Shall Strangers Knock,
Much money is expended an
nually for advertising Corvailis
and Benton county and the prog
ress and growth of the city is
heralded abroad to attract home-
seekers to our midst, all of which
is right, proper and commend
able. Our men are doing their
part to advance the interests of
our community and state and as
a result hundreds of new people
are coming to settle among us.
But there is something left for
the women of the community to
do, a duty to perform that will
mean much to these homeseek
ers and much to the city in nu
merous ways. It is the duty of
hunting up these new families
and extending to them a wel
come that will make them feel
at home. A formal call of ten
minutes from one, two or three
of our town ladies is about what
the average newcomer receives,
according to the complaint made
by many ; then they are left to
get acquainted as best they can.
Many a new family groys

of this neglect by our people. A

A remarkable incident occur

sank. Those present saw that
death was the unfortunate man's
doom. The horrors of it (a man,
an animal,, or even the smallest
insect abhors death) froze " the
blood in the veins, and although
the victim called pitifully, all
were transfixed with the ghost of

faces as it clinched its victim in

A Rain Proverb.
Kaln before seven.
Fine before eleven.
I have always heard this proverb'
with the two additional lines:
If It rains at eleven
Twill last till seven.
And I have witnessed the truth of
the last two lines very many times,
notably on three separate occasions,
on which, being up the river for a
would have been a godsend to me, it
has rained persistently during the
whole afternoon, the rain beginning
between 10 and 11 o'clock and eras
