Readers r , i s ti ot tne uazette win remfimc-er tne particulars of this accident, which was due to the "penny wise, pound foolish," policy tr Lincoln county officials. All the details appeared in these columns at the time. The heirs or Mrs. Luckey, who was killed, were awarded nothing. The people of Fairmount pre cinct, have forwarded to the au thorities at Washington a petition for a rural free delivery. The route is to start at this city and go out Wells road through the Williamson neighborhood until it reaches the Corvallis and Independence road, and returning to Albany by way of Granger, the distance of the route being about 22 miles. Thore were more than 100 names to the peti tion. Albany Herald. A resident of the northwestern portion of our city complains U tho Gazette of the misdemeanors of a number of thoughtless boys in his neighborhood. They have a fash ion of blacking their faces, and visiting houses after dark, where they ask for a drink, or offer rome other excuse for an opportunity to frighten the lady of the house, whom they know to be alone. The city officers have been notified and if this thing is persisted in, some burnt cork comedians will be doing a turn in Judge Greffoz's court some ot these dismal mornings.

The invitation is welcomed and I believe that w hen the investrr.entis explained, your correspon dent will bo an investor in fact. I desire to state that "A Gold Mine'' is a cleverly written comedy drama that local talent is preparing to present to a Oorvallis audience on December 20th. The company presenting the play is the same that produced "My Friend from India," and "What Hap pened to Jones,'' and like tfioso plays, this entertainment is being given as a benefit. The organization that enjoys the fayor of the company in this last venture, is the Ladies' Coffee Club, and the money realized trill be given to them to become a part of their library fund. The Ladies' Coffee Clab is a part of the Corvallis Fire Department and was organized some eighteen years ago to serve coffee while volunteer firemen were fighting fires. Their historv is known. It is enough to say that they have at all times continued ai active or ganization and recently have added a pian for the maintenance of a library, free to the members and to the firemen. "A Gold Mine" was made famous by Nat Goodman vears ago and this fact serves to recommend it as worthy of patronage. The shares of stock will be sold as tickets for the play and continual dividends of hearty laughter, paid to investors during.the ontire performance. The scene is laid in England where an American named Wolcott goes to dis pose of a mine he owns at Grass Valley, California. While endeavoring to nego tiate a sale to Sir Everard Foxwood.his sympathies are aroused aud he gives away the whole mine. His Yaekee luck, however, serves him beyond- his expec tations, and as a result of his marriage he wins not only the woman of his choice, but gets back again all the min ing properties he so generously gave away. The interest in the play lies in the amusing situations and complications that arise. Neither Messrs. Wolcott, Foxv.ood&Co, their local agent, nor any member of the caste, has any finan cial interest in the pky. It is done for success ofJ.hc library. E. E. Wilson. week asro.

"We've got two 'Postmaster' Johnsons," said Mr., Yates. "Well," said Mr. Logan, "I mean 'Editor' Johnson." "We have two 'Editor' John sens," the attorney replied. After some thought, Mr. Log an again ventured to identify his Johnson "The one that 'dab bles' in pol'tics, he's the fellow I mean." "Both of our Johnsons are politicians," answered the Cor vallis gentleman. "Let's see," said the librarian, "my Johnson is about 35 years old." "Both of rny Johnsons are be tween 30 and 40," said our townsman. A pause ensued, bnt finally Mr. Logan's face lighted Bp, "I mean the Johnson who-manied the aubnrn-haired lady." "Oh yes," said Mr. Yates, "that's 'B. W.r asd he is alive and doing well." Will Have to Wait. Meeting of Creditors.

There has been considerable dis cussion of Jaie regarding the condi tion ot the road leading from town to the Odd Fellows' cemetery. It is said that there are a few hun dred yards of this road, near the cemetery, that are almost impassi ble. Tuesday afternoon S. N. Wil kins and Louis Wilson made a trio over this roael with a view to devis ing some means cf improving its present condition. Work was done during the summer and fail by the residents along this highway, but there was not funds sufficient to to properly gravel it, consequently tho work done during the past sea son is almost a total loss.

Was Bound Over. Chester Rust, arrested last Sat urday on a charge of larceny of a cow, particulars of which appeared in our Tuesday's issue, was given a preliminary hearing in Justice Hol gate's court Monday afternoon. As a result, he was bound over to the April term of court, with bonds placed at $250. So fcr bondsmen have not been secured. In the preliminary trial, Deputy Dist. Atl'y Bryson appeared for the state, while J. N. McFadden repre sented the defendant. The prose cution introduced as witnesses, E. L. Sharp, James Taylor, Mr. Dun ham, Capt. Robinson and Marion Bennett, whose evidence was prac tically given in 1 uesday e Gazette. The defense waived examination. The penalty for the offense is one to fifteen years in the penitentiary. A Portland reader of the Ga zette, signing himself "Nim- rod," writes to this paper under date Of December 9th, as follows: "Enclosed find clipping from Gazette of 7th relative to the slaughter of ducks. I am glad to note that you take notice of such items, and only hope that the combined press of the state will thus expose the unwarranted and flagrant abuse of the hunt er's paradise. From my office windsw I can see the largest game market in the city, and it was but a few weeks since that I saw a wagoa load of spoiled docks damped into the garbage wagon of a scavenger. The slaughter should be stopped." j Ripe olives In bulk at Zierolf's. I F. L. Miller went to Portland yesterday on business. Ho will be home today or tomorrow.

Rose planted an acre and a half of corn last spring on his place west of Corvellis and raised about 70 bushels, the greater part of which he fed to hogs.

At the last meeting of the city council a petition was presented by the teachers of the public school, praying that an ordinance be passed prohibiting parades of shows dur ing school hours, as it attracts the attention of pupils and interferes with school work. The petition was referred to a committee, with instructions to consult with the city attorney, draw up an ordi nance and present it at the next meeting of the council. Some weeks ago we called atten tion to the fact that the enterpris ing citizens of Monroe and vicinity were in a fair way of seourlnar the establishment of a creamery at that point. Last Saturday George D. Goodhue, manager of the Salem creamery was in Monroe and after discussing the matter thoroughly with many prominent farmers of that section, deeided to establish a plant there. In January a three days' meeting will be held, at which time Dr. Withycombe, of the O A C, C. H.
