GLADYS KINGSBURY Leading Lady of The Cooley Company. From the Philippines. Jesse B. Lawrence, of Eugene, now a bngler of Co. K, 35th U. S. Vol. Inf., now in the Philip pine islands, has written quite a letter to the Eugene Guard for publication. The writer- stated that many ef the natives of the islands would like to assume friendly relations with the Amer icans, but did not dare to as they feared their own people. We print the following extract from the letter: In the towns that I have been during.the last dry season, many natives have expressed a desire to help Americans. However, most of them do not come out openly, yet there are some who do. I suppose the public in gen eral often wonder why it is that the insurrection still continues with snch force. This can easi ly be explained. The present forces, except in a lew cases, are not found under arms. The guns are safely hidden in rice paddies, swamps and bamboo thickets natil an attack is planned. Then tne natives, or soldiers, uneover their weapons and assemble at a specified place, which is always under cover. So you can see that our forces are kept at a very great disadvantage. Without the aid 01 a tew natives, who can go among the insurgents' lines and learn their moves, or places of concealmenfi of guns, we are en tirely ignorant of their where auts. Only during the past few months have we had such natives. Wonders have been accomplished, too. It this new Filipino army can be organized it will do more than the . entire American forces. At the present state of affairs a native that turns traitor to his people is very apt to come up missing some morn ing. Put His Foot In It. , Nearly everybody, both old and young, have read the tales of the "Arabian Nights." Those who are posted will recall the charming little story of the glass merchant, or rather, peddler, who passed from house to house with his basket of glassware. How he sat down on a door-step, with his basket of" ware at his feet, and indulged in one f those "day dreams" that are often of rare sweetness, but gen erally subject to a rude awaken ing. The merchant in question, in his dream, multiplied his profits until they assumed great proportions and he erected "air castles" of such splendor that he concluded it behooved a man of his standing to take unto him self a wife. The wife ef his "dream" disobeyed him and Be went to kick her, when lol m reality he kicked his basket of glassware over and" ruined its contents. Ia an instant he was . -ifn - fit --v-: fii-'iself again, face to face with li' realities. 'e had "put bis foot in it." Mi :: have been raising all sorts of -old Ned" ver since with the - pedals, Urge and small. A ( v or two ago a good farmer anc: his wife came over from Lim county to do some trad ing. They had a basket con taining twenty dozen eggs. The gentleman went into a certain business house and. asked the price of eggs. On learningwhat he could get per dozen he passed out, stating that he would see his wife and ascertain what she thought about it. Time passed and he did not return. The merehanft was busy and soon for got tne farmer with the eggs, or concluded that his wife had made up her rniud to trade elsewhere. Later it was learned that he had climbed into the wagon to get the eggs, and in moving about, unmindful of the frailness of Linn county egg shells, had put one of his No. io's into the basket. Consternation and con fusion reigned for a briet time. His boot looked as though lie had stirred a.cake with it. Like the Arabian merchant he had ,,put his foot in it." No further business was done that day and the farmer and his wife drove home in silence. Doing the Grand. The young ladies of O A C's senior class entertained the young men ot their class in Miss E. T. Chamberlain's rooms at the col lege, Friday evening. A fea ture of the affair was that the young ladies acted as escorts to and from the place of entertain ment, some of the boys were evidently very bashful, for the young ladies found a few gates wired. One instance is recorded where a young lady had to climb the fence to reach the house. The girls were a little afraid of the "dark" and it is said that each one carried a lantern. How ever, the party was a great suo cess in everv way. Games, music, Kuessing-matclies and de licious refreshments combined make an evening seem quite b: f. It is quietly reported that 01: young lady, whose heart fa: d her whu the hour ar rived that she v.-as to sally' forth an escort the young man to the pa: v, was giv. ua ducking in bat ,-tub. Satun ay night; this bei g understood to be the pun ishment to be ineted out to any young lady who showed the "white feather." Over 103 Years Old. The following disDatch from Albany appears in Sunday's Ore- gonian : f "This is the birthdav of Al bany's oldest citizen. Patrick Brennen, who was born in Ire land, March 16, 1798, and hence has seen three centuries.

"Old Pat." as he is familiarlv known, has many acquaintances in Corvallis. where he visited some four or five years ago. He is a typical son of the "ouldsod," and a more honest, kindly heart than Pat's never beat in human breast. Bids for Wood.

A gentleman was up from Sa lem a few days ago with a view to securing an option on the out put of the apple orchards during the coming season. He stated that he had just been over on the west side of the summit of the Coast range of mountains. While over there he visited the Bristow apple orchard near Sum mit. He was delighted with samples of last year's crop, and sated that he had never seen finer Baldwins. These apples were reported to be firm-meated and free from worms, and such a deep rtd color that they almost looked black. The gentleman was quite enthusiastic in his praise of the country lying on the western slope ot this range of mountains the entire lengtk of the Oregon eoast and pre dicted that some day it wonld be the greatest apple-producing sec tion in the state. Few people realize what these ranges will look like twenty-five years heace. Much of the tim ber will have been cut away by the large lumbering companies. In fact there is unusual activity among lumbering men at the present time to secure timber rights. They will help in a large measure to clear up the land, which will then be taken in hand by the agriculturists, horticulturists and dairymen. It will be an even break between the horticulturists and dairymen who Yfill take this section in hand. The man who secares a homestead in these Coast ranges will never have cause to regret such a move. To Star in Badger Game. Fayne Strahan EJoore. the daughter of Oregon's late chief justice, R. S. Strahan, who has acquired so much notoriety in both America and Europe during the past few years, has been aur ing the past season appearing at the Gaiety Theatre, London, un der the name of "Madeline Wil son" in Messenger Boy. It is now stated that she is about to return to America, after dazzling London and Paris and will blaze forth in the theatrical world as a star of more or less brilliancy, appearing- in a dramatization of the incidents of her New York career that gave her so much newspaper notoriety, and badger trial fame. A deal has practically been closed whereby she will appear in this country next season as a star. The managers rely on the third act of the lurid mele-drama to score its success. In this act Mrs. Moore, wh assumes the role of an adventuress, will enact as nearly as possible, the alleged badger game, of whioh the late Gearge C. Mahon com. plained in court.

Bicycle paths will this year be used only by wheelmen who are willing to pay a tax of $1 towards their maintenance. This is the latest construction placed upon the law enacted by the state. legislature at its late session. While the law was passed too late to permit of the path levy, the provision of the act restricting the privileges of bicycle paths to those who pay the tax is plain. There is no question about this feature of the law, and- cyclists know that their use of paths with out the payment of the $1 tax lays them liable to prosecution. The sheriff is allowed nothing for col lecting these taxes, nor are his deputies allowed anything for mak ing arrests for violations. A penal ty of $5 is in store for those viola ting the law. A Call for Warrants.
