"In Wyoming" next Wednesday.
"In Wyoming," a romance of
the Western Plains, strong in
emotions and beautiful in senti
ment, will be the attraction at
the opera house next Wednes
day, December 23. The story
of the play teems with the breath
of the prairies, it fascinates with
its powerful plot of love, intrigue
and adventure, and coinpels
many a hearty laugh with light
comedy, softened anon with a
gentle touch of pathos. ihe
beautiful story is so naturally
unfolded that it instantly appeals
to the heart of ev( ry man and
woman in the audience. It is
the most original and diverting
play of Western life ever written,
there is not a shot fired during
the entire performance, and in
this respect will be a great relief
from usual melodrama.
"In Wyoming" is on the order
of "The Virginian" and it is as
good as "The Girl of the Golden
West," the producing company
is strictly high class and is posi
tively guaranteed to be the best
seen in Corvallis in a longtime.
Reserved seats now selling. Spec
ial bargain prices 35, 50 and 75.
Ah Efforts to Revive Her w
Unavailing m Death
iowfd Sunday Alorninp.
Mrs. Fred Griggs died jusi e
fore six o'clock Sunday mor:u lg
at tiie Stephen Griggs farm, a
few miles north of Corvau.s,
from an overdose of Anti-Kamia
powders which she had taken to
relieve a severe headache.
Mrs. Griggs had long been a
sufferer from'excrutiating head
aches and Saturday evening,
when one of these severe attacks
came on, she unconsciously took
a number of the Anti-Kamia
tablets, and was unable to rally
from their effect upon her heart.
When it was known that her
condition was serious medical
aid was promptly summoned,
but all efforts to revive her were
unavailing and she passed away
early Sunday morning.
The family recently came here
from Nebraska, Mr. Griggs be
ing a brother of Ira Griggs, who
lives near this city.
Besides a bereaved husband,
deceased left two small sons, four
and five years old, to mourn her
loss and miss her loving care.
Telegrams were sent to rela
tives in the east of the sad event.
The funeral took place Monday,
interment being made in
Locke burying ground.
