WITHOUT WARNING. While Visiting In Corvallis a Young Lady Is Suddenly Called Home. One of the happiest young ladies who attended the Junior Hop Fri day night was Miss Ella Rummelin. She was visiting friends here and it is thought that she intended to re main until after the commencement exercises at the O A C, but Satur day morning a cautiously worded dispatch called her home. Later it was learned that death had over taken her father, Geo. P. Rumme lin, of Portland, while on a busi ness trip to New York city. Mr. Rummelin haB been for years en gaged in the furriers trade and his sons were interested with him. According to the reports he was last seen alive on the Southfield, a ferry-boat plying between tho boroughs of Manhattan and Rich mond. Later his body was re covered from those waters and the throat was cut from ear to ear. The first news of the tragedy was given by a woman who was a pas senger on the Southfield on her 10:30 a. in. trip, June 16, from this borough to Richmond. When. the boat reached the landing at St. George, one ot the terminals of the Baltimore k Ohio Railroad, she told one of the ferry officers that she had seen a wfrll-dressed elderly rvi An with a. full dark beard, leap orer the rail from tha star-board bow of the vessel. A peddler then name forward and said that at about ihe same time he had been gazing . . . . upon the wake void ne saw me head nf a. man rise to the foam- covered surface for a few moments. As the white face tuned up to the sky he saw the ghastly wound in the throat, and saw that the waves as they swept across the features were deeply tinged with blood as they broke and fell about them. Others had seen the man upon the hnt. hut. t.hev had not seen him go overboard, and the ferrymen, busy at the hour with tne rusn oi shopping travel to Manhattan, nrmiM nnt. hnlifive that such a thine' v v ev v CJ could have happened unobserved by others, lor on bright days inese boats carry many passengers, even in the early morning hours, who go to take the eight-mile sail across the bay and back tor the fresh air, and after failing to get an explana tion from them as to why, if they had seen such a thing, they had not raised a cry, the steamboat men concluded that they were try ing to perpetrate some hideous hoax and bade them begone. There are two opinions held as to the cause of death; one is that he jumped overboard with suicidal intent and that one of the paddle wheels struck him just so as to cut his throat. The hands employed on the boat state that there are two dark passageways for teams and that the awful deed could have been perpetrated by some murder ous fiend and the body slipped over board. The body was recovered while still warm, by some fishermen. The remains will be shipped to Portland br interment The de ceased was highly respected, and a wife, three sons and three daugh ters survive him. Baccalaureate Exercises. WINDOW DISPLAY. An Attractive Lot of Lioa Coffee Prem iums la Altea S Woodward's Window. We frequently bear the claim, "some thing givea for nothing," but do not often see an actual demonstration of the principle, like a display of Lion Coffee premiums now on exhibition in Allen & Woodward's display window. Here are many valuable articles, all given free for the I ion-head cut from the Lion Coffee wrappers. These are not cheap articles, but comprise clocks, um brellas, watches, gold rings and jewelry, besides many things useful and orna mental in the household, or will be en joyed by the children. Lion coffee fully deaerves the popularity which it has gained, because of its superior strength and flavor. The baccalaureate sermon of the 31st annual commencement of the Agricultural College was delivered last Snnday by Dr. H. L. Boardman ra the college armory. The large auditorium was filled, and the exercises were interesting and appropri ate. The choir, faculty and ministers of the various denomi nations of this city occupied the stage, which was artistically set with potted plants. The music was under the direction of Miss Eilen Chamberlain. Dr. Boardman is president of McMinnville college. The sub ject of his sermon was "The Life Luminous," and he took as his text: "The spirit of man is the candle of the Lord," Proverbs xx:27- He said in part: "The greatest question for human consideration is that of man's proper relation to God. To be able to assume such re lation is the highest ambition of every right-thinking man. Sol omon had a philosophy of life at once practical and profound. The text is a sample of it. The figure is a simple one, but the truth suggested is mighty. "God is the central fire of the universe. He is the source of light and life. Man, touched by this divine fire, burns and glows here in this world. He becomes God's candle. But that he is capable of being ignited indicates a positive correspondence with God. The candle burns because it is kindred in nature to the flame. A stone may heat and crack, but flames not. That man is God's candle indicates kinship with God in his nature. "Justice, love, mercy, are in every 'spirit of man.' These are the relics of God in the soul. They point to God. They make it possible for man to be ignited from God. Freedom, intelligence, are in every human life. These point to a personal God, without whom a personal man is unaccounted for. "Just as the 'spirit of man' becomes exalted, ennobled, cul tivated, educated, does it become increasingly capable of shining with God, the essential flame.. Thus man becomes more and more the revelation of God. Yet he never attains to such character as to completely re veal God; at best but imper fectly. "Here lies the true philosophy of and reason for education. Why develop mind, heart, body, soul? That thus man may more perfectly become the candle of the Lord. It is a low ideal, which prompts one to secure per sonal culture, refinement, educa tion, for its own sake. These are the means placed in our hands for making these lives candles of finest quality to glow and shine with light for others. This, is the true ideal in education- the bringing of man up so far as possible to the divine posi tion which was his when God launched him forth in his own image. Such a life is ready to be lighted and to burn with light for the illumination of the world which so much needs it." A BEAR STORY. This Means You. Yon will find it cheaper to buy a light for your wheel than to pay a $5.00 fine for riding after dark without one. Nightwatch. A Large Black Bear That Would Not Climb a Tree. News have reached town to the effect that a large bear was killed Sunday near Harris. The story is that one of the Ellsworth boys while passing near the place of Caleb and Frank Davis, about 14 miles from Corvallis, heard Caleb's dogs chasing something and guessed they were after a bear, as one has been known to have been in that section for years. He went and told Caleb of the fact and the Davis boys took guns and started in com pany with Ellsworth. They heard the dogs and Caleb and Frank separated, Ellsworth go ing along in the lead of Caleb. Suddenly the bear was sighted just ahead of them and Ellsworth crouched down in front of Caleb as the latter had the rifle. Caleb began shooting, and the first shot, struck the animal in the shoulder. He showed fight and came at them in a manner that meant business. Caleb stood his ground and continued to shoot over Ellsworth's head un til he had fired some six or seven shots. When the animal ex pired it was so close to the spot where Ellsworth had crouched that he could almost place his hand upon it. The men state that they were each considering the matter of trying their legs when the bear sank down. It was found to be a large male bear and when they were skinning it they discovered that at one time it had been fired at with a shotgun, as its head was full of buckshot. It had also been in a trap at one time and bad lost one of its hind feet. This is undoubtedly the reason it could never be treed. It is thought to be the bear that Jesse Brown's dogs have run so much, but to Jesse's disappointment could never be "forced up a stump." l KLINE'S. Our Natal Day. The createst. Grandest, most elorious celebration of the anni versary of our national indepen dence will be held in Corvallis. July 3rd and 4th.

Census Enumerator Frank Groves has almost completed his task in the district comprising Corvallis and vicinity. He is very anxious that no one be overlooked, and all who have not been enumerated or know of anyone who has not been recorded will please hold up their hands. W. H. Mahoney, traveling audi tor of the Southern Pacific R. ft, passed through this city, Saturday, en route for San Francisco, where his headquarters are located. He is one of the stockholders of the Benton County Prune Company and was here strictly on business. We acknowledge a pleasant call from the gentleman. Patriotism fills the bosoms of the denizens of Lincoln county to such an extent that they, too, have en tered the ranks and will celebrate on the Fourth of July. A mass meeting has been held in Toledo and amid great enthusiasm it was voted to celebrate the national holiday. A committee was appoint ed to solicit the necessary funds and they report good success. It is certain to be a "go." Saturday a number of the boys who have been attending college during the school year just past, departed for various parts of the state. Some of them went home, but a good many of them went out to canvas in the interest of the King-Richardson Publishing Co., under the direction of L. I. Gregory, who is working for this company and has control of the territory. Mr. Gregory outline! the work of the canvassers and assigned each his territory. M. M. Waltz leturned Monday from Portland, where he had been attending the State Sunday School Convention which has just closed in that city. Mr. Waltz reports that the session was most success ful. Nearly every county in the state was represented including Benton. Fifteen hundred dollars was raised for the maintenance of a secretary in this state. This is a very important step and will be endorsed by every Sunday School in the state. From last reports of the Corvallis boys in Washington, Brady Bur nett, Henry Allen and Harry Hol gate, it is learned that they were all well and at work. ' A feat worthy of publication was performed by T. W. Dilley's little boy last Sunday. The little fellow is only five years of age, and mount ed on his bicycle he attracts much attention. Sunday, in company with his father, he road his wheel to Albany in a trifle over two hours. This is good time considering the gear of his wheel, the distance being over ten miles. General Beebe has appointed Frank E. Fdwards signal officer, with the rank of major. Frank has been military instructor at the O A C for the past year, and the cadets have reached a state of pro ficiency never before attained by them. He was a non-commissioned officer in Company F., Second Ore gon, in the Philipines and has an excellent record. Frank S. Ben nett and Frank F. Freeman, also Oregon volunteers, were appointed aids-de-camp, with the rank of cap tain. Saturday the Kline ball team went to Amity, where a pic picnic was given, and played the McMinnville team. The McMinn ville boys were victors, the score be ing 14to 0. Sunday this same team played at McMinnville and again our boys suffered defeat, the score being 8 to 2. This was a much bet ter showing than was expected the Corvallis team to make as they were playing one of the best teams of the state, and a team in better practice than the team of Corvallis. Alex Benney, for instance, has had no opportunity to practice, having been confined to the store of Nolan & Callahan, and tho part of catcher is one of the most important posi tions in a team. It is thought, by men versed in these matters, that with practice the Kline team can defeat McMinnville. As it was, they did exceedingly well. For Sale.
