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.

I audience was not nearly so large as it

j The bodies of John Pontrip, a farin
jer whose home was one half mile from
Nodaway, and Everett Calvert, a farm
hand, were found in a well on the Pon
trip farm last Friday night, August 9th.
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
