WHEAT PRICES SOAR; FARMERS JUBILANT European War Scare Sends beat Skyward, Although Oats and Bailey Remain at Low 1.1 el, Prompted by the European war scare which followed Austria-Hun garia's declaration of war against rvia, wheat prices have been climbing skyward at a lively clip during the past few days, and Pa louse country farmers are jubilant. Since last Friday wheat prices have advanced six cents per bushel, the greater part en the' advance being noted in the quotations of Wednes day and Thursday. Fortyfold wheat yesterday reached 72% cents in the local market, the highest price for many weeks, with club at 71 ft cents and red Russian at 70 cents. Just a week ago today fortyfold was quot ed at 66 cents, club at 65 cents and red Russian at 64 cents, with appar ently no hope for a raise, and early this week several Pullman farmers contracted their fortyfold wheat at 69 and 70 cents, when the market showed a quotation of 68 cents on that variety, they receiving a price In advance of the market on account of the excellent quality of their pro duct. With the market advancing at an almost phenomenal rate, the farm ers are showing little inclination to contrail their crops, evidently an ticipating a still greater increase in prices as the Eureopean war cloud gains volume. Oats and bailey are' unaffected by the conditions which sent wheat skyward, and both of these products remain at a low mark. Oats were yesterday quoted at 85 cents per hundredweight, with feed barley at 75 cents per hundred weight and the brewing grade five cents higher. Very little threshing has been done in the vicinity of Pullman, al though In the western part of the county threshing machines are going full blast, considerable grain has been cut in eastern Whitman, and some fields have been threshed. Next week will see harvest opera tions on in earnest in all parts of the county. Many separator explosions, caused by the overabundance of smut in the wheat, have occurred In western Whitman, no less than 29 of these explosions, some of them followed by disastrous fires, having been re ported. Smut is also very much In evidence in this part of the county and the threshermen will undoubted ly experience the same difficulty when operations start here. . - - PULLMAN.

Will iam of Normandy assembled the vic ini ious sun i\ era of his army, count ed them, made' record of i hose liv lug, I,resent, or accounted for, In order that he might know how many good soldiers his victor) over Harold had cost him. The cost was heavy. Hastings was a real battle for those days and the English had not yield ed to William the Conqueror without v mighty struggle. William desired that the Hastings battlefield should have- a suitable monument, so be caused to be erect ed thereon Battle Abbey, and In Bat tle- Abbe) he' enrolled the' names of the' survivors of Hastings. This is the famous Roll of Battle Abbey. In following centuries, it came to pass that many famous families of Eng land pointed with pride tee the name en an ancestor whose name was In- , scribed in the Roll Of Battle Abbey. |i It is with one' of these families that this article has to do. One of the names em the Roll is that of Baldwin de Brionne, viscount of Devon in the- Conqueror's time. W'ido de Brionne, another of that name, conquered a seigneury in Wales. Time went on. The con quered Saxons and the conquering ; Normans gradually grew into one people— the English race of today. The descendants of Baldwin and W'ido de Brionne were quite numer ous. Eventually the family name became "Brian." Later, still in the Middle Ages however, it became "Bryan." One of thee Bryans was a judge in the- court of Queen Eliza beth. The name became quite well known in England. In Scott's Ivan hoe, Brian de Bois-Guilbert is the preceptor of the Knights Templars. Two brothers of the Bryan family came to the Colonies in I 738. The descendants of one of these moved southerly, and westerly, out through the Carollnas It. Is probable thit William Jennings Bryan is of th's branch of the- family. The family and descendants of the other moved northerly, out into Pennsylvania and Ohio. It is of this branch that Presi dent E. A. Bryan is a member. Grandfather Bryan of the- north ern branch, lived in Delaware on the Brandywlne when tbe Revolutionary war began. The day before the Bat tle of Brandywlne, In which Lord Howe Inflicted a defeat upon Gen eral Washington, the latter and his staff took dinner at the Bryan farm. In a branch of the family in Indi ana, the table used upon this occa- j •ion is still preserved. Several sil-j ver teaspoons, captured in an engage ment on Chesapeake Bay, are also j preserved. On the maternal side, was Grand father Beabout, whose home at this time was over in New Jersey near the Monmouth battlefield. He had ' some experiences of his own. Mon mouth is remembered as the battle j ill which General Washington he can '■ angered at General Lee and ordered him to tin- rear. Devout churchman though ho was, on this occasion, says the historian, General Washington "swore till the very leaves of the trees trembled." It, was em this occasion that Lee was captured by the Hessians. At the time- of the capture he was quartered at the homo of Grand father Beabout. The Hessians stole Into the American territory, quickly effected the capture and retreated hastily* leaving In the rear one of | their comrades to gather up certain belongings which they had left. Grandfather Beabout was wroth. Not only had the Hessians raided his home unceremoniously and taken therefrom a distinguished guest, but It may be- safely guessed that they also took sundry chickens and cattle and trampled down fields and knocked down fences. He had bound to him in service till he was 21, a "bound-boy" who was is. He told the bound-boy that, if he- would capture the Hessian, he would re lease him from service. So the bound-boy, a hero whose name has not been handed down, armed himself with an old flint-lock, bestrode the old gray mare, and charged down the road after the Hessian, win, had just departed. Ho captured him, brought him back, and he and Grandfather Beabout deliv ered their prisoner to General Wasn ington. Following their advantage at Brandywlne, the English swept through the country, driving out all the cattle they could find. They took Grandfather Bryan's cattle, leaving the family in quite straightened cir cumstances so far as live stock were concerned. A little later, the Bryan* left their home em the Brandywine and went to Pennsylvania, where the older Bryan established a small woolen mill. President Bryan's grandfather em the paternal side was at, this time a lad of 14, and went with his father to Pennsylvania. There the boy grew up, married a Scotch-Irish girl, and they raised quite a large family. One of these children. President. Bryan's father, became a minister. Others were physicians. The town of Bryan, Ohio, is named for an ancle, who was a surveyor. While the father of President Bryan was a student at old Jefferson College—now Washington and Jef- i ferson — Daniel Webster on one oc- i casion delivered the graduation ora tion. He began with a long citation la Latin from Virgil. At one point in the address, he said: "When yet the howling of the wolf could be heard from the college halls, old Dr. Anderson was teaching his boys ln Jefferson College." Dr. Anderson was the first presl (Contlnued on last page) RUIN'S SELLS OCT Robert Burns, the popular pho» ipher, who has been located in Pullman for many years, has sold his business le) 10. A.

"EDDIE" KIENHOLZ TO ASSIST BENDER Sim I e.iu-l.cllet Athlete Will Be Assistant Football . Coach at W. S. c.—Heavy Schedule Arranged (.'ouch John K. Bender will have au able assistant in rounding out the 191 I W. S. C. Coothball team in Edgar 11. (''Eddie") Klenholz, a member of tho 1913 graduating class, who this week accepted the position which was tendered him by college officials. Klenholz will be Instructor in agriculture and horti culture in the elementary science de partment and director of elementary athletics ln addition to his duties as assistant coach. Coach F. W. /.ink, who last year had charge of the ele mentary athletic activities, has been promoted to assistant to Coach J. F. Bohler in tho department of physical education. Kienholz is well qualified for his position as assistant football coach, as well as his position as instructor. For three years he played a half back position on the varsity team, and is one of the few men who have left college after having won honor letters in all the branches of ath letics, he having won his letter in baseball, track and basket ball as well as football, He was an excep tional student, having graduated with honor, thereby putting some healthy kinks in the general theory that the best athletes are not the best students. Since graduation he has been athletic coach at the North Yakima high school, where he has also taught agriculture, and met with great success in both phases of his work. Kienholz will be remem bered as the best punter since the days of Joe Halm, and made possible many a victory for W. S. C. with his handy toe work. He is an aggressive hard working player, and should prove a big success as a coach. Coach Bender Is well pleased with his selection, and predicts that he will make good. Probably the heaviest football schedule In the history of the col lege has been arranged for Bender's proteges this fall, nine hard games having been already scheduled, with one or two more almost sure to be scheduled later. The squad, as usual, will play every team In the Northwest conference, the policy of the college being to carry a heavy schedule in all branches of athletics as the only fair means of giving all the contestants a complete tryo'it for the respective teams during the year. This policy also proves an in (Continued on last page) NUMBER 44 CHAMBER WILL RESIST !
