ALBANY WAS EASY
Company G Basket-Bail Team Badly
Defeated by Dallas College
Company G, of Albany, went down
to defeat before the Dallas college
basket-ball champions to the tune of
34 to 1 in a game played in the college
gymnasium last Saturday evening.
The O. N. G. team put up a fairly
good game, but were so badly out
classed by the college boys that the
contest was dull and uninteresting to
the spectators from start to 'finish.
Dallas threw goals at will, and had
the ball in their possession fully three
fourths of the time. The presence of
another team on the floor did not ap
pear to prevent them in the least from
handling the ball in any manner they
pleased. Albany threw no field goals,
and but one goal from the foul line.
Dallas scored 17 points in each half
of the game. The soldier boys are
gentlemanly players, and took their
defeat good naturedly. The teams
lined up as follows :
Dallas Position Company G
Teats Forward Rupert
Wilson " Dolan
Poling center McDaniel
Hoffman Guard Bilyeu
Ford, Gates " Ketchum
The preliminary game between the
Eickreall and Dallas athletic clubs
was the more interesting contest of the
two. The game was highly amusing
to the spectators, and the individual
members of each team came in for a
large share of good-natured "joshing"
at the hands of friends in the crowd.
What the game lacked in skill was
made up for by main strength and
awkwardness, and the interest of the
spectators was never allowed to cease
for a moment on account of a lack of
"something doing." Billy Rowell, of
Rickreall, acted as referee, and had
his eye with him at all times. His de
cisions throughout the game were
satisfactory to both teams. The final
score was 15 to 8. The teams lined up
as follows :
Dallas Position Eickreall

HEAVY SALES OF HOPS
Twenty-Seven Cents Is Freely Offered
for Prime Quality.
The hop market reached boiling
point Saturday, and at times came
nearly boiling over, when 27 cents
was repeatedly offered and refused for
merely prime lots of hops, says the
Salem Statesman. Two poor lots,
which were not wanted at one time,
sold for the handsome sum of 25 cents
per pound. John Schindler sold his
lot of 00 bales for this price to Jos.
Harris, buyer for Benjamin Schwartz
& Sons, who also bought another lot
of over 100 bales. W. H. Egan sold 43
bales of medium hops to Krebs Bros,
for 25 cents per pound, and the Skiff
and Shields lot of 253 bales were
bought by B. O. Schucking & Co. for
25 cents. Thos. Holman sold his large
lot of 354 bales of prime hops for 27
cents per pound. J. Carmichael bought
the Moore lot of 100 bales from Mc
Minnville, paying for them 26J cents.
Sales were also made in other sec
tions of the state, and at prices report
ed to be above 27 cents.

Dr. Miles' Nervine Saved
There is great aatijjer in a run down con
dition. Overwork, mental strain, the cares
and worries of business and the home, all
have a deleterious effect upon the nerves,
which in their devitalized condition readily
fall prey to the attacks of disease. Aside
from the danger there is no condition at
tended by so many disagreeable symptoms;
such as loss of appetite, indigestion or nerv
ous dyspepsia, headache, tired feeling and
loss of ambition together with the agony of
sleepless nights spent in tossing restlessly
about, only to rise exhausted in the morning.
Dr. Miles' Nervine is a true nerve tonic
which, by strengthening the nerves, restores
health and appetite and brings sweet sleep.
Tor six years I suffered almost constantly
from a complication of troubles which culmi
nated in complete nervous prostration. I
had no appetite, I could not sleep, I suffered
from indigestion and nervousness. As is so
jften the case in nervous prostration I fre
mently had weak, faintine spells. Doctors
lid not help me. They said my blood was
lery poor, and I know my face was always
very pale. The very first bottle of Dr. Miles'
Nervine I took gave me noticeable relief and
I felt stron er fian I had m years. My
neihbrs in Puvallup, Wash, where I then
nved will testify to this. I also used some of

Remarkable Interest Shown by Qoat
Breeders at Dallas Show.
The fifth annual Angora Goat Show
closed last Friday night, after a two
days' exhibition. The interest dis
played by breeders was remarkable,
and the animals exhibited this year
were far superior to those shown at
former fairs. The poultry exhibit
wasalso much better than that of any
past year, and the display of sheep
and hogs was an attractive feature of
The goats were judged by John W.
Fulton, of Kansas City, Mo., secretary
of the American Angora Goat Breed
ers' Association. Mr. Fulton, previous
to his election as secretary, devoted
his entire time to the breeding of An
gora goats in Montana, and he still
has extensive interests in that state,
He is known far and wide as a suc
cessful goat breeder, and the mana
gers of the Dallas show feel that they
were most fortunate in securing his
consent to judge the stock and make
Mr. Fulton was enthusiastic in his
praise of the Oregon goat, and when
asked his opinion of this exhibition as
compared with other exhibitions he
has visited in the last three or four
years, replied : '.'You may make my
answer as strong as you like, for I am
frank to say that this show, in the
aprgreerate. is the finest I have ever
visited. Of course, I have seen in
dividual imported specimens that are
finer than any here, but as an aggre
gation of anything like the same
number, this is the best I have ever
seen. The climatic conditions of
Western Oregon appear to be highly
favorable to the growth of fine mo
hair, "continued Mr. Fulton, "and I do
not believe that any place in America
outside the Willamette Valley can dis
play such a number of exceptionally
good goats as are here today. This is
a great mohair country ; the breeders
are progressive and up-to-date, and
Western Oregon is sure to become
known the world over as a country
producing mohair of the best grade."

Whitney Pays The Difference.
The printers in the State Printing
Office are now hard at work upon the
43d Oregon Supreme Court report.
This is the first time in many years
that the reports have been set up by
hand composition, as it has been cus
tomary with Mr. Whitney's pre
decessors to have them set by machine.
This deviation from the precedents
meets the approval of the typograph
ical unions, as it give3 more men
employment and is more satisfactory
all around. The hand composition
work is more expensive by about $250
or $300 to the volume, but thi3 amount

pocket, and gives the printers the

lated the amount which shall be paid
for each volume of the reports which
is printed, and it makes no difference

concerned, how they are set up.

J. S. Talbott Submits Proposition to
Furnish Rock for City Streets.
J. S. Talbott appeared beforo the
city council Monday evening and sub
mitted a proposition to furnish crushed
rock to the city in any quantity de
sired for uso in street building. He
proposes to supply this material in
three different sizes, at a cost to the
city of $1 a yard, the rock to be of first
class quality for street purposes. The
crusher is to be located near the city,
and the rock to be delivered inside the
city limits. After a brief discussion,
the proposition was referred to the
street committee for further investiga
tion. It is not understood that the
city is asked to bind itself to purchase
any stated amount of crushed rock
each month or year, but rather a
question of whether the streets shall
hereafter be made of rock instead of
gravel, whenever any improvement is

WAS MORTALLY WOUNDED
Isaac Hughes Died at His Home Near
Falls City Friday Night.
Isaac R. Hughes died at his home
near Falls City at 10 o'clock last Fri
day night. His death was caused by
a gunshot wound inflicted by the
accidental discharge of a 40-65 Win
Chester rifle. The accident occurred
on the old Hughes place a few miles
southwest of Oakdale.
While working at the house with
his brother, Pearl, and B. J. Harring
ton, he took his rifle and went out to
shoot a hawk, He fired twice, and a
few minutes after the second report of
the gun the men heard him call for
help. They went to his assistance and
found him lying face downward on
the ground, about 200 yards from the
house. In his right side was a gap
ing bullet wound, and he was bleed
ing profusely. His companions
carried him into the house and im
mediately summoned medical aid
from Falls City and Dallas.
When tho doctors arrived, an ex
amination of tho wound was made,
and it was found that the bullet had
entered his right side just below the
first rib. Two ribs were broken, and
the upier portion of tho liver and the
lower part of the right lung were torn
away and the ball had passed out
near the spine.
From a statement made by the un
fortunate young man to Mr. Harring
ton a short time after the awful acci
dent occurred, it appears, that the
discharge of the gun was purely
accidental. He was standing on a
slippery log when ho attempted to
shoot, and the first time he pulled the
trigger the hammer failed to work.
He began a hasty examination of the
weapon to ascertain the cause of the
trouble, and while so engaged his feet
slipped off the log and he fell to the
ground. In his fall, the gun was dis
charged and tho bullet penetrated his
right side. Realizing that he was
badly hurt, he fired the gun a second
time in tho- hope of attracting the
attention of his companions at the
house. He then struggled to his feet
and started toward the house, but was
soon overcome by tho loss of blood
ii nd ilie deadly pain of the wound and
again fell to the ground, where ho was
found a tew minute later.
