In the basketball games played by theOregons, Tuesday and Wednesday nights, against Malvern and Red Oaks, Iowa, the western aggregation was matched against greatly Inferior teams, easily defeating both of them by scores of 40 to 9 and 50 to 11 respec tively. In the Malvern game Ned Shaw, the big center of the Oregons, became known to fame under the cognomen that has been endearingly applied to him by local sportsmen ever since he first begun to play basketball, the press dispatches to the Oregonian declaring that " 'Pebo' was the star for theOregons, making 10 field bas kets." TheOregons are now swinging back on the return half of their tour, hav ing played 39 games, winning 31 and losing only 5. They hope to arrange for a straight series up from Cali fornia to Portland, and an effort will be made to arrange for games with the Multnomah Athletic Club both in Portland and on the home floor. After leaving Buffalo, the Dallas boys met with very rough and dis courteous treatment at a number of places, Alliance,Obioespeclally, where they were fairly mobbed by a crowd of rowdy spectators after the close of the game. The treatment accorded them has been in the greater part very good however, the worst trouble occurring usually in cities where the games were close. Alvie Morton said in a letter to one of his friends: "Everytime we win from a team that has never before been defeated on its own floor, we have trouble. When we get back home we will know how to sympathize with traveling teams." A letter from B. A. Teats, the team manager says that the second date with Shenandoah, was set for Thurs day Instead of Tuesday as had been reported. Tonight the schedule is indefinite and Saturday night the Ore gons will line up against the Haskell Indian Institute. "Mystery" Saturday Night. Regarding the "Mystery" entertain ment which will be given in this city Saturday night February 11, a notioe in the Madison Democrat, of Wiscon sin, says: "The Kerr-Angoli-Boone presentation at the opera bouse Thurs day night, made good before an aud ience that filled the structure, an aud ience fairly representative of the high est menitality and culture of the city. Professor Angell, psychologist, was the star attraction, of course, and not once did he fail in any of his attempted demonstrations. Blindfolded, he read ily found every article carefully secreted by the committee named from the audience, and as a final test suc cessfully performed the demonstration made famous by Bishop, one of this country's greatest psychologists that of finding in a book the page and words agreed upon by the committee, and while still blindfolded wrote on a blackboard the words thought of by the committee but never once uttered aloud. Throughout the evening, Pro fessor Angell kept the audience thor oughly mystified and marvelling at bis powers. Before ending the per formance, Professor Angell explained his method of working, Bhowed the simplicity of it, and sought to con vince the audience that most of the mysticism, spiritualistlo stunts, psychic and medlumlstlo seances and demonstrations are as easily explain able." Basketball Tonight. The Dallas College basket ball team will meet the Newberg aggregation for the second time In the present League season, In the college gym nasium tonight.

Remnants in Wool Dress Goods on sale at One-Half price. Campbell Hollister CASH STORE Electricity for Lighting Is only expensive to people who are wasteful and careless. To you, who are naturally careful, it does not come high. It Is economical because It can be quickly turned off wnen not needed. With gas or kerosene there is the temptation to let light burn when not needed to save bother of lighting and adjusting. In some homes the elootric light bills amount to only one or two dollars per month. You can probably get some kind of artificial light for less money than electric light, but does it save you anything when it limits op portunities for work and recreation ruins your eyesight smokes your walls mars decorations and increases household work. You could probRbly save a dollar tomorrow by going without your meals but it wouldn't be economy. It is not so much what you save, but how you save that counts. WILLAMETTE VALLEY CO.
