The moral character and clean
life of the students at the Uni­
versity of Oregon was vindicated
last week in the circuit court at
Eugene, when James Fullerton
was convicted for circulating a
report that “ immorality was
rife” at the University. The
University revealed its entire dis­
ciplinary record since 1872, and
also proved from army statistics
that not a single Oregon man
gave signs of any venereal affec­
tion when subjected to the mi­
croscopic tests at the S. A. T. C.
examinations, and that there had
not been a single request for pro­
phylactic treatment. E v e r y ­
thing Fullerton said was proved
to be founded on mere rumor and
hearsay. The jury convicted the
aged defendant on the first bal­
Council Meeting.
The monthly meeting of the
city council was convened on
Tuesday evenings March 11th,
and called to order by Mayor
Bartlett. The councilmen pres­
ent were Messrs. Barr, Smith,
Osborn and Morgan, absent Dr.
Wells. The water report for
February showed collections a-
mounting to $218.45, and the
same ordered placed on file.
Bills allowed for J. F. Love­
lace $50.35; John Osborn $42 75;
A. W. Schuldt & Son $10.40; B.
O. Sarver $7.75; Neil Bronson
$14.00; A. E. Sparks $6.00; T. J.
Raegan $16.75; P. R. L. & P. Co.
$21.00; A. J. Mills $3.50; James
Smith $75.47, Clear Creek Lum­
ber Co. $29.76. The bill of Mrs.
F. L. Heylman for $300 for right
of easement for water main was
not allowed. No other business
coming before the meeting, mo­
tion to adjourn was carried.
S. E. Wooster, Recorder.

us that on July 1st the postage
on letters and post cards will be
reduced to the old scale, namely
two cents for the former and one
for the latter.

A Remarkable
Poultry Record
Miss Ida M. Schrepel has given
us the following interesting data
concerning the record of a flock
of hens at her home.
It num­
bers thirty-one hens which were
hatched last April 4th, and began
laying September 9th.
F o r
September and October they
averaged six eggs a day, which
was increased to a dozen eggs
for November.
In December
there was yet another increase
to fifteen eggs a day, and for
January and February this mount­
ed up to one and a half dozen a
day. If this record is maintain­
ed by April when these hens will
be a year old, they will have
brought in an income of $50,
while they themselves are worth
at least a dollar apiece.
These hens were bought-as day
old chicks for fifteen cents each.
They came from Corvallis and
are cf the White Leghorn strain.
They have had good but not fancy
care, and even were neglected
occasionally when there was a
new baby in the house.

land, by the pastor the Rev. Dr.

The Elwood U. B. Church was
the scene of a very pretty. wed­
ding on Thursday, March 6th,
when Miss Montie Cox became
the wife of Otis Vallen. Prompt­
ly at 2 p. m. the bride very
becomingly gowned in white and
carrying a bouquet of white carn­
ations, entered the church accom­
panied by her sister Mrs. Cora
Jacobs, and marched up the aisle
to the strains of the wedding
march. She was met at the al­
tar by the groom who was attend­
ed by Mr. Walter Cox, the broth­
er of the bride. The Rev. J. O.
Staats of Portland then read the
impressive service which united
this happy couple in the bonds of
holy matrimony. Thechurchwas
very beautifully decorated for the
occasion, with ferns, moss and

Mrs. Otis Vallen was born and
reared here, and is a most estim­
able young woman and the groom
