has been coached by Mr. Klias Day,
and the only one that is allowed the

It seems to be the unanimous verdict
of the newspapers throughout the

before the Chautauqua assemblies put
up any better entertainment than the
Cambridge Players. Here arc some
of the comments:

be one of the best entertainments
ever witnessed in this town.

grade entertainers and each number

Otho Keefe, Age 7 Years, Steps
Off Train Which Leaves the
City Without Him.
Frantic Mother Wires From the
Capital City to Send Son to

When little Otho Keefc, aged 7
years, of Los Molinos, California,
who was accompanying his mother
to Portland for a visit with relatives
during the Llks' reunion, stepped off
the second section of train No. 16
when it pulled in to the union depot
here this morning, he had no idea of
getting left in the Hub City. ,
When the train came to a stop at
the local depot, the little fellow who
was clad in a suit of Khaki and wore
a pair of sandals, slipped away from
his mother and went out on the sta
tion platform to take a view of the
city and it evidently impressed him
so much that he firgot all about the
train and it pulled out without him.
When he discovered that he was
left, he was heart-broken and the
tears streamed down his sun-burned
face. His grief attracted the sympa
thy of a number of the many pas
sengers on the station platform who
were waiting for the trains and he
was soon in the midst of friends, all
of whom were anxious to help the
One kind-hearted man, M. E. Gar
wood of Woodburn, took the young
ster in tow and after washing the
lad's tear-stained face, bought him
an orange and thus got him in a good
humor again.
The mother of the .boy evidently
didn't miss him until the train had
nearly reached Salem, for some time
later a telegram was received at the
depot from Conductor Long of No.
In instructing that the boy be placed
aboard the Lugene flyer which ar
rived here at 8:25 o'clock and sent
to the union depot at Portland where
his mother would be waiting for him.
He was a bright little fellow and will
be looked after by the passengers
enroute to Portland.

T. E. Coleman, who has been local
agent for the O. C. T. company for
the past few seasons, is one of the
most etVicient river transportation
men in Oregon and through his en
deavors and by his Courteous treat

Albany One of Best Towns in
the State Says Marshall of
Big Lumber Company.
Weyerhauser Holdings in Ore
. gon are BigHas Title to
Over 300,000 Acres.
George Marshall, general tax agent
for the Weyerhauser Lumber inter
ests, arrived in Albany last night and
is registered at the Revere hotel.
When seen by the Democrat rep
resentative .Mr. Marshall gave out the
following interview:
"Our company pays into the treas
ury of Linn county about $10,000.00
annually. This sum represents the
taxes levied against our holdings here
and of course we firmly believe that
we are paynig more than our just
proportion of the burden of taxation.
"In Linn county the Weyerhauser
interests own in the neighborhood of
30,000 acres of timber land and have
title to about 300,000 acres in the
state of Oregon."
In reply to the question as to what
he thought of the future of Albany,
Mr. Marshall said:
"Albany is, in my Judgment, one
of the best towns in the state. It
has just as good a country and just
as good, if not better, transportation
facilities as Eugene and there is no
reason why it should not be as
large as Eugene at the present time.
Albany is just beginning to catch up
with herself. The people arc just be
ginning to realize that the place has a
great future and in my judgment you
should easily have a city of ten thou
sand people in less than three years."
Mr. Marshall was accompanied on
the trip by his daughter and they re
turned this afternoon to their home in
Tacoma, Washington.
Mr. and Mrs. Jepp of this city went
o Portland this morning to attend
the Elks' reunion and visit friends for
