TNEED.V RIKCVIT ROMANCE. 'rcstoii W. Search Tells an I'unrltteii Story of Biscuit Trust. The story of the naming of the 1'needu biscuit is perhaps as unique as the name itself. Preston W. Search, the "schoolmaster traveler," who lec tured before the inland Empire Teachers' Association last week. Is personally acquainted with the bis cuit trust that manufactures the Uneeda. To a little group of friends at the Hotel Pendleton last evening. Mr. Search told the following story of the miming of the wafer: "Bert 'Crawford, the son of the president of the biscuit trust, was taken seriously 111 of typhoid and lay for several months in a hospital. His nurse was one of those ministering angels that so often capture the heart of their patiejit in their untiring ef forts to bring back the low, ebbing strength. This was the case of Bert Crawford. He desperately loved his nurse, but he hesitated to declare his feelings until first he had gained his father's consent. "Each day the busy father would leave hla office to pay a brief visit to theu&tient. As was his wont, he would do most of the talking and the boy In his embarrassment would not secure an opportunity to tell of his intentions. "In the meantime the father, not knowing of his son's love for the pret ty nurse, was himself smitten by her charms and laid his heart, hand and Incidentally his fortune at her feet and was accepted. "Then came the bitter moment when each learned of the other's af fection for the woman. But the son was of good stuff and he gracefully bowed to the defeat and the elder Crawford married the girl. "When the National Biscuit Com pany produced a new wafer the elder ly bridegroom asked his wife to name It and she called It the Uneeda. Thus the homely little article of food has women In Its name, the romance of three hearts. This story I know to be absolutely true and there are but few persons who know of It." The annual fair of the Sisters of St. Francis for the benefit of St. Antho ny's hospital, opened last night, with an attendance that taxed the rooms in the Bowman building to accommo date It. Sales by the severul botohs were large and the Sisters In charge are confident of large returns during the entire week. The fair will close Saturday night. The booths are tastefully decorated and the articles displayed are all works of art, needle work, sofa cushions, dolls and enumerable other things of use and ornament In the home. In connection with the booths a dining room is being conducted. The women of St. Mary's Catholic parish,' who are assisting the Sisters of St. Francis, are: Miss Margaret Ityan, Mrs. M. Light, Miss Grata, Miss Leet, Mrs. Clark, Miss Cunningham, Mrs. Chase, Mrs. Shears , and Mrs. Kennedy. The members of the sisterhood and the parish have been preparing for the fair for several weeks and each night new features will be added by way of entertainment. Tonight the doora will be opened at 7 o'clock. Governor Chiimlierlaln and Congress. limn .1. X. Williamson Will Ind the Delegation Mayor Matlock, Judge liowell and T. . Ilnlley Will Possibly Attend From l"endletn Oregon Will Muke an Effort to Bring the 1905 C'oiigresH to Port land Attendance From Oregon Has Always Been Comparatively Light at Irrigation Meetings. Pendleton will be represented at the coming National Irrigation Con gress at El Paso, Texas, by several of her most prominent citizens. A spec- inl rate for the round trip has been made by all railroads leading to El Paso, and efforts are being put for ward to Induce as many Oregontans to attend as possible In order to se cure the next convention for Port land during the Lewis and Clark ex position. The regular rate to El Paso is $70. Delegates to the congress, therefore may go and return for this fine. Pullman fare for the round trip will be S12. Mayor Matlock, who Is now at St. Louis, will return to Pendleton In time to vote and will then proceed to Pnso. Judge Stephen A. Lowell hus signified his intention of going lo Ihe congress If possible. His law partner, T. G. Hulley, who Is now In tne East, is expected to be In El Va.1, also William Ulakeley and H. J. Tay lor. Heretofore Oregon's representation at the Irrigation congress has been very light'. At Colorado Springs. there were but five Oregontans out or 400 delegates present. At the Ogden meeting there were 1200 delegates,, and 60 from this state. Governor George E. Chamberlain and Congressman J. N. Williamson will lead the Portland delegation. The Portlanders will leave for El Paso on the night of November 9, taking four days for the trip. The congreBB con venes November 15 and will be la session three days. a The opening up of vast arid land regions In Oregon during the past few months has caused much Interest locally In regard to the question of Ir rigation. The bringing of the con gress to this state In 1906 will give an opportunity for Irrigators through out the United States to study Ore gon's condltiona and It Is believed will prove of great benefit to the state. ' Other Delegates May Go. In addition, steps are being taken to Insure the attendance at KI Paso of D. C. Brownell. O. D. Teel and J. F. McNaught, of Echo. Their go ing is not assured, but Is probable. Judge Lowell Is also In correspon dence with W. S. Goodman, ex-repre sentative, of Milton, and with W. T. Shaw, president of the Hudson Bay Irrigation Company to secure their attendance If possible. COI LD PAY TWO FIXES. A malignant epidemic of diphtheria la now raging at Chinook, near As toria, . C. J.

That Henry Ward Beecher was spared much embarrassment by his quickness at repartee is Illustrated by the following story: One evening, as he was in the midst of an Impassioned speech, some one attempted to .interrupt him by sud denly crowing like a rooster. It was done to perfection: a number of peo ple laughed In spite of themselves, and the speaker's friends felt that In a moment the whole effect of the meeting, und of Mr. Beecher's thrill ing appeals, might be lost. The ora tor, however, was equal to the occa sion. He stopped, listened till the crowing had ceased, and then, with a look of surprise, pulled out his watch. "Morning already!" he .said; "my watch is only at 10. But there can. he no mistake about it. The Instincts of the lower animals are Infallible." There was a roar of laughter. The lower animal" in the gallery col lapsed, and Mr. Beecher was able to resume as if nothing had. occurred. The Ambidetrous Society of Lon don, has been formed with the object of encouraging people to use both Grand total .12.515.511 hands with equal facility.
