Your cue to let him know
That you're not a goin' to knock
Just because it ain't your shout,

Uncle Sam's Requirements G 'ow
ing More Strict.
; Recent decisions in contest
cases show that the Government
is becoming more strict in regard
to making final proof on claims.
In two decisions just rendered
the Register and Receiver of the
Lakeview Land Office held that
non-cultivajtion of lands was
abandonment, regardless of the
fact that the party holding the J
homestead Tesided upon it as re
quired by law. These two cases
involved lands near fhe state
line. -
- The Lakeview officials have
rendered decisions in two other
cases, in which the contests were
instituted two years after the
parties had made commutation
proof, but patents have not yet
been issued. It was the opinion
of the officials that the entries
had been made solely for the
timber, and that the residence
and cultivation of the land was
a mere pretense. It was there
fore held that the proofs should
be rejected and the land held for
entry. ' V
All of the decisions being ren
dered are on the same line, and
in every instance tney are ad
verse to the homesteaders. It is
now quite generally recognized;
that no applicant will be able toj
make proof on a homestead in
the timber, and most of the per
sons holding are - relinquishing
and placing timber- and stone
filings on the claims. It is quite:
evident that while Uncle Sam
was dilatory in enforcing the
public land law's, now he ha&j
once started matters are being
carried to a point that makes it
acquire land under the home-
stead act. Ex.
Welcome the Victors.
Portland proposes to give the
Olympic victors, Smithson, Gil
bert and Kelley, a grand recep
tion on their arrival in America.
A liberal fund is being raised
for the purpose, and no effort
will be spared to make the occa
sion a memorable one.
Aside from the example given
in honoring the American win
ners in the inter-national con
test, it will be an immense ad
vertisement for Portland and
Oregon. A part of the plan pro
posed is to bring the athletes
across the continent from New
York in a special car, which will
further amplify the advertising
feature, as the car .will no doubt
be decorated in such a manner
that no one of the millons who
will witness its passage can re
main in ignorance of its desti
nation and purpose.

. A report Irom Letroit says
that forest fires are continuing
unchecked and some of the most
valuable timber in the state has
already been destroyed. A large
force of rangers is'" fighting a
further advance of the flames,
which will cause a great loss if
list soon checked. The timber
m reported to be very dry and
the hre, fanned by a strong
breeze, is spreading rapidly.
1 A number of small forest fires
are reported as being started in
the mountains west of. here, but
nave caused no serious damage
as yet. Smoke overhangs this
portion of the valley.
A later dispatch says: Because
of lack of men, the Government
forest rangers are almost power
less to fight the big forest fires

forest reserve in southeastern

the trees, but left them standing.

Has Nervous Prostration. Miss
Minnie Woldt.
The following item, concern
ing Miss Minnie Woldt, a form
er Corvallis girl, will be read
with interest by many people in
this city. It is taken from the
Portland Telegram, in which
city Miss Woldt now resides:
"Becoming excited as a result
of yesterday afternoon's fire, Miss
Minnie Woldt, an operator in
the long-distance department of
the Pacific . Telephone & Tele
graph Company, was stricken
with an attack of nervous pros
tration, and for a time it was
feared that she would not sur
vive. She was taken to the home
of her parents at 370 Second St.,
and although she has not spoken
since yesterday, she is resting
easy and it is thought will soon
"Miss Woldt is a frail, nervous
girl, and although she was-seldom
ill, it is feared that the ex
citement caused by the south
ward sweep of the flames, which
she could see from the window
of the telephone exchange and
the rush of work that always
comes during fires led to the
sudden breakdown. Since ar
riving at home she has been in
a semi-conscious state. , The
physician is of the opinion that
the girl had a severe 'attack of
hysterics." "
.Miss Woldt has many friends
in Corvallis who will be sorry to
hear of her illness and all hope

A Eugene Groom and Corvallis
Bride. Scott-Keady.
- Thursday evening at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. George Ready
on Ninth street was celebrated
the marriage of their daughter,
Miss Mabelle, to T. Winfield
Scott of Eugene, about 40 rela.
tives and friends being present.
w At the stroke- of eight, Miss
Cleo -Johnson played the wed
ding march and the bridal party
entered and moved forward
through the back and front par
lors and took a position under a
large noral arch, from which was
suspended a beautiful wedding
bell of white sweet peas.- The
dainty little ring bearer, Emilv
Keady, led the way, followed by
b. K. Hartsock, best man, and
Miss Edythe Keady, bridesmaid,
and lastly the bride and groom.
At the arch the party was met
by Rev. J. W. Armstrong of the
Episcopal church who performed
the impressive ring ceremony.
1 he bride, who is a beautiful
and winsome girl was indeed a
lovely picture in a Princess gown
of cream silk voille, carrying a
shower bouquet of white carna
tions and orchids. Miss Edythe
Keady was daintily gowned in
white swiss. The rooms were
prettily decorated with sweet
peas and clematis.
f ollowing the congratulations
light refreshments were served.
During the luncheon the bride
tossed her bouquet and in the
rush Miss Ilettie Lilly bore it
off in triumph, which indicates
that she' will be the next blush
ing bride. An unusually large
number of very handsome and
costly presents were received" by
the young couple, much silver
ware, cut glass and band painted
china being included.
Later the happy couple, by
clever maneuvers, eluded the
party of guests and reached a
waiting automobile a few blocks
distant, thus missing a shower
of rice and old shoes. They pro
ceeded to Albany and took the
overland train for Eugene where
a pretty home awaited them.
The bride is one of Corvallis'
most lovable and popular girls,
who by her womanly attributes
has won a large circle of friends
in this and other towns where
she is known. The groom is a
young man of worth and is in
terested in the Red Cross phar
macy of Eugene. Both he and
his bride are OAC graduates and
are followed by the best wishes
of a multitude of friends.
Saturday afternoon, in Kings
Valley, occurred the funeral of
Minnie Pearl, only daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. L. W Townsend,
old and esteemed residents of
that place. The services were
conducted at the cemetery by
Rev. C. T. Hurd of Corvallis.
Deceased was born in Kings Val
leys January 1, 1894. Her-death
occurred at Newport last Thurs
day morning at 9:20, although
she had been ill for a year or
more. She went to Newport on
the Saturday previous to her
death, accompanied by her moth
er and others from the neighbor
hood in which she lived. In
asking permission to go on the
trip she told her papa that it
would be the last place she would
ever go, seemingly aware that
death was . near, although other
members of the family did not
realize it. The parents and one
brother, Cecil, are the immediate
survivoi s. - The remains were
brought out from Newport to
Wrehn, Friday morning, and
were conveyed thence by private
conveyance to the last resting
place in the valley where the
young girl was born. The moth
er has been in a serious nervous
condition ever since the daugh
ter's death. Much sympathy is
felt for those bereft. V: Deceased
was a niece of Mrs. Addie Price,
Mrs. Clyde Beach and ? Ernest
Rodpers of Corvallis and a grand
daughter of Mrs. Agnes Kodgers
