Mr. and Mrs. William Toner left a few days ago for their home in Yaquina, Lincoln county, following a short visit with friends in Corvallis. They stopped off here while enroute home from a trip to Salem and other valley points where they had been for a visit with relatives and friends. Mr. and Mrs. Toner resided in Corvallis for a time and are well known here. Mr. Toner was a Wells Fargo expressman on the C. & E. railroad for a number of years and was decidedly popular with the patrons along the route. Later he was assigned to the Corvallis office and the family resided here for a time.
