FAMOUS ONES APPEAR Eugene Pastor Tells of Greatness of Dickens and His Work. "Little Nell," "M a c a w b e r." "Wilkes" and other famous characters stood forth vividly last night at the chanel of the Willamette uni versity when that master ,of things literary, Rev. F. H. Wilkenson of Eugene, lecturing on Charles Dick ens, caused in imagination, eacn 10 appear in illustration of the style, and purpose of the great author. j He stated that Dickens had a great j purpose in his work and that his ef-r forts resulted in the establishment of free schools in England; that the' great author touched upon all phases of the life of the poor and the needs of the children of his day, and yet the suggegstively unclean was absent while he took his readers behind the scenes of the 'London of his day. Dickens caused much to be done for the proper care and education of the young and was wholesome and helpful in all his woiks. 1 Thus did the Eugene man present In striking style the lecture of the evening before a good sized and highly appreciative audience.

Girl Bound for Industrial School Passes Through Various Changing Scenes and Couses Some Worry. A disreputable appearing little girl, muddy, dripping wet, stepped form the Southern Pacific train yesterday afternoon with Police Matron Lelia S. Lynch bound for the county juvenile court from a small town east of Salem. From the top of her curly head to the tips of her shoes she was a mass of oozing, slushing mud. She appeared to be In the best of spirits despite her uncomfortable condition and the crowd of curious people which quickly surrounded her did not see mto affect her. At the Salem hospital she was fitted out in warm clohting and an obnoxious cold cared for. She will be committed to the state Industrial school for girls. Had Burdens Karly. Concerning this little ragmuffln an interesting story may be told. The eldest child of thrifty Norwegian parents, little Anna, aged 13, felt at an early age tho duties of a large family. She is a bright child, quick, accurate and eager to learn. Always headstrong and determined as far as her own ' wishes were concerned she had trouble with1' her ' public school teachers even In the primary grades and. her escapades caused her parents much anxiety. She wished for pretty clothes,' fashionable friends and a piano. Finding these luxuries impossible in her own home (the ran away and arrived In Salem several months ago, stranded and without a cent. Mrs. Lynch became Interested in the child and cared for her at her own home until a position 'was secured for her In a private home. Then the war began. Anna Wouldn't Toil. Anna had an apathy for ' work. She prefererd to climb trees. Jump fences, watch the crowds at tho Oregon Electric depot, or punch pins into bugs. She was eventually discharged and turned over to the county court. After being committed to the girls indstiral school her sentence was ruspended on promise of good behavior. She wan to report regularly each week to Judge Bunhey and was allowed to attend the public school In her home town. She failed In all the requirements and attended school whenever It pleased her wilful soul to do so. The rest of the time she spent watching the village blacksmith at his forge or flying heller skelter between the boxcars near the depot. l Upon complaint, Mrs. Lynch ........... ........ gg We Haive The' Goods ROSE DALE SLICED HAWAIIAN PINEAPPLE.

Dives Into .Mud Puddle. Anna was rt school when Mrs. Lynch arrived In town and after talking with the parents the police matron decided that the little girl would have to leave her fcmlly. Leaving the school on the May to the train Anna was very pleasant and appeared to be delighted that he was to return, to Salem.. Suddenly he choho the muddiest puddle on. the street and fell Into It in an apparent faint. Arter some persuasion on the part of Mrs. Lynch she arose, covered with mud from head to foot. Then without the uliRhtect warning tdic ran screaming Into a near by yard and jumped head foremost into a rain barrel of water. She was dracged from her perilous position kicking and calling loudly that he wanted to die If the ' had to go to Salem." She Liked the lllevator. While she resided with Mrs. Lynch Anna had a peculiar fondnsj for running the automotlc elevator In the Steevea building. She would slip away unnoticed, and would bo running the car at full speed up and down the building. She Inquired the whys and wherefores of, everything which met her notice and kept everyone about her busy answering her questions. Little Anna. Is one of the many girls who have been helped by Salem's kind hearted . police matron. She will be given another chance to "make, good" at the Industrial ntliool and probably the first person to grasp her hand with a hearty good wbh for success when she leaves the Instltu lion wijlibe that of Mrs. Lynch, Mho mothers many unfortunate girls In Marlon county.
