The music loving people of Oregon were favored with a rare treat last Fri day evening, when Prof. Claude Rader, concert violinist of the Kansas City Con servatory of Music, made his violin talk exquisitely to the audience which met him at the Presbyterian church. Mr. Rader is certainly quite a virtuoso and used his bow with great skill and his beloved instrument, which is exceed ingly old and priceless, responded to his touch in a most pleasing manner. The numbers were all well rendered from De BeriotVConcerto Militaire"and Wieniawsk's "Legende" and "Sans Paroles, pieces of great brilliance to the "Traumerei" of Schuman and Schu bert's Serenade" whose sweet strains charmed to the utmost. Pie was accompanied by Miss Olive Roberts, who proved herself an artist in her line, her sympathetic playing show ing her to be a real accompanist. Oregon people are particularly interested in Miss Olive as she spent her early girlhood in our little city, while her father was pas tor of the Presbyterian church here.

The men apparently had been dead some hours, supposedly from fire damp. It is the theory of neighbors that Pontrip, who was cleaning the well, had been overcome by damp and that Calvert, on going to his rescue, met a like fate. Pon trip, who was a bachelor, lived alone and the first intimation that the men were missing came when Calvert's wife, who, worried over his failure to return home in the evening, notified neighbors, who instituted a search for the men. Calvert was 23 years old and leaves a widow and one child. Pontrip was 45 years old.
