Speaking of tbe charge of conspiracy
on the part of tbe plaintiff the court
said: His conduct In regard to this

any such purpose or design on his
part as is attributed to him by the de
fendant; therefore I lay the matter
out of the case. '
In summing up the court said: I
have come to tbe conclusion that the
plaintiff should recover nothing for

Looks Suspicious.
There is everything to cause a num
ber of Corvalllsltes to believe that
couple of gentlemen (boys rather),
reached this city Thursday with a
couple of bicycles that were not their
own. Early in the morning they
passed a farmhouse seven or eight
miles north of town and offered to sell
their wheels, stating that they were
from Portland. As the name plates
had been destroyed on the wheels
they failed to sell them even at the
low price of $10. They were several
hours in reaching this city which
proved them to be very poor riders for
boys who bad ridden from Portland,
a fact that condemned their statement.
Be that as it may tbey sold one of the
wheels for $10, a ridiculously low price
for a good wheel, and tbe bike was
good. 1 he fellows were only 18 or 20
years of age, and It is generally
believed that they appropriated tha
silent steeds somewhere without per
mission. Corvallis Times.'
Ho Ran Away.
A Falrvlew correspondent of the
Brownsville Times says: A few even- .
logs ago as Johnny Horn was out
after the cows he saw two little black
cubs run up a tree about 20 yarda
away. Johnny this is a fine chance f "'
bear meat aud a thrilling "bear story.''
!k he raised his Winchester and fired.
At the crack of tbe gun. one of tha
cubs gave a pitiful cry and both came
tumbling to the ground, and at the
same time the old mother bear came
out of the brush near by and made a
dash at the hunter, who, thinking
that "he who runs away may live to
light another day," took to his heels
and reached the house in lust 2)
jumps, since which the bears have not
been seen.

notwithstanding his extreme senility,
he is In very good health. Mr. Dun

(.ounty 1845 and has lived here ever
since. He was born in Fayette county,
Pennsylvania, on the 13th of Sep
tember, 1794. In 1820 he was married
and he has been father to ten ohll.
dren, one of them being Solomon

crossroads east of tbe peuitentiary.
Tbe centenarian is at tbe home of
Duncan Ross on Howell prairie. He
will, very likely, be one of the voters
in this county at the presidential
election In November.
The Snagboat.
The wreck of the old government
snagboat Corvallis, which has done
good service on the Wlllamettee and
other rivers for years, was sold by
Captain FiBk, United StateB engineers,
R. Wakefield, of Portland, being the
purchaser for $460. The wreck, whlon
now lies on the bank of the Willam
ette river, some ten miles below Eu
gene, is of no value except for the
machinery It contains. Mr. Wake
field has sent a man up to examine it
to see if It can be patched up so as
float it down to Portland, as this will,
if practicable, be the cheapest method
of transporting the machinery.
Captain Fisk Is having a new snag
boat with more powerful machinery
built and of lighter draught. Guard.
