Oscar Gustafson returned Saturday
from an extended tour of the coast i
states, Calif ornia in . particular. 'He
went to look for a climate and farming
conditions more favorable than that of
Oregon, but did not find it. Mr. Gus
tafson may not remain in Corvallis, but
when he locates again it will be in Ore
gon. He was in the Sacramento ai d
San Jaquin valleys and was wonderfully
pleased with the activity in the latter
section, but found that it cost topjnuch
to get in, and then he thinks 100 in the
shade is somewhat warm. Mr. Gus
tafson is enthusiastic about Modesto.
That place was hardly on the map five
years ago, but now has a population of
4000, has every modern improvement,
even to 60 blocks of street paving.
That is an irrigated country, and won
drously rich, but all things considered

Mr. Musgrave says there is a decided

real estate as well that is. there are a

for real estate.
B. W. Johnson thinks he is about the
only big seed in the apple. While fish
ing at Y achats last week he landed a
nineteen inch trout and affirms that in
this he broke the record. His parti cu
lar specimen was one of the "cut
throat" variety, a fish that does not
usually grow to such enormous size.
Instead of sending this fish to Presi
dent Taft, as he should have done, B.
W. had it prepared the way he likes
best and ate two-thirds of it, his better
half getting what was left. Mr. John
son tells another whopper about catch
ing a seventeen-inch one last year, and
a fifteen incher the year before and
there his memory very fortunately fails
him. - '
Richard Brumfield, recently appointed
game warden for the Alsea country, is
in the city. In a pleasant conversation
at this offiice, Mr.. Brumfield argued
that he is exactly the kind of man to
land the game law violators of the Alsea
country, and he cited the fact that in
fifteen days he has already convicted
three men for fishing without license
and another for killing deer out of sea
son. He says he has a line-up on
others and proposes to enforce the law
strictly. Brumfield points with pride
to the fact that in nine years he was
convicted but once of killing deer out
of season and he . insists that spite
work on the part of others who killed
deer daily is responsible for that arrest.
State Game Warden Stevenson will be
here Saturday, probably, and an effort
to have Brumfield's appointment re
called may be made. ' -:

1 There is now some prospect of the
primary school , building being moved
to Job's Addition. During , a month
the contractors have been fooling with
the job, accomplishing little. They were
unavoidably delayed for a time by fail
ure to get necessary timbers but recent
ly the work has been neglected. It took
more than a week to get half the building
two . blocks and from Thursday until
Monday that half blocked Monroe at
Ninth, and no attempt was made to
move it further. The school board
made things warm for the contractors
yesterday and it is probable that the
building will be hustled to its . destina
tion. According to contract the build
ing should now be on its new foundation.

Tribute to Lady Curzon's Memory
Hung In Taj Mahal.
- . . .
OF RARE ORIENTAL DESIGN.
Placed by Order of Former Viceroy of
India Above the Cenotaphs of Shah
. Jehan and His Queen In Mausoleum
at Agra Made by Skilled Egyptian
A tribute to the memory of Lady
Curzon, who-was Miss Mary Letter of
Chicago, swings in the magnificent
marble mausoleum, the Taj Mahal, in
Agra, India, -"it is a lamp of rare
oriental workmanship of bronze inlaid
with silver and gold.
"... It was placed there immediately
above the cenotaphs of Shah Jehan
and his queen, the builder of the Taj
and the consort, at whose death the
beautiful structure was erected, by
Lord Curzon as a silent memorial to
The story of the' love of the fifth
mogul emperor of Delhi which in
spired the Taj and of the placing of
the new lamp In the old tomb by the
former viceroy is told by Ella Wheeler
Installed After Evening Prayer.
"Not many months ago America and
England had occasion to feel more
than an artistic Interest in this won
derful monument to a constant love,"
writes the author. "Just after even
ing prayers had been said in the
mosque and while the sun's last rays
kissed the shimmering minarets and
the .shadows lingered in the eronnda
above the Taj the lamp was Installed
witn htnng ceremonies bv the lieu
tenant governor of Agra." '
Of the event Lord Curzon, who had
been a frequent visitor of the Taj
Mahal with his American wife, Is
quoted as saying:
"I had often been struck by the ab
sence of any lamn above the ceno
taphs of Shah Jehan' and his queen.
It was clear that at an earlier date
such a lamp had been suspended from
the dome. I found that the most suit
able, model would be a lamp that once
hung in the tomb of the famous Sul
tan Beybars II. I learned that there
were only two workmen in Egypt ca
pable of parrying out a work of so
much delicacy, and one of these, To
dros Badir, was intrusted with the
"For the inscriution. which runs 1n
a belt about the broadest Dart of the
lamp,; I purposed to have in Persian
script only the words 'Presented to
tne TomD or Mumtaz Mahal by Lord
Curzon, Viceroy of India, 1906.' I am
assured that no such lamp has been
made since the period of the original
manjr centuries ago." '.- " i. . -
T ; World Understands Gift.
''Lord Curzon is silent ree-ardin tho
tender and i beautiful meaning under
lying his gift, the writer comments,
"but the whole world understands and
the centuries will preserve the poetic
significance of his offering. ,:
Unborn eenerations who -nasa mi
the marble stairway and under the
lighted lamp will breathe a prayer for
the soul of the fair-American, together
with that of Delhi's youthful empress,
for always the mind of romance
must associate the names of these two
young beings who were absorbed into
tne me absolute, crowned with youth,
beauty and enduring love."
Shah Jehan's favored wife died in
1629. The Taj. dedicated to her, re
quired twenty-two years in the build
ing, and the cost is variouslv estimat
ed from $9,000,000 to $60,000,000. It
was erected when Delhi was in the
zenith of its magnificence and is one
of the architectural wonders of the
world. Cosmopolitan Magazine For

Owing to the liability of the towline
to snap in the effort to start, George

tor truck of forty-five horse power
with spiral springs. Six barges with
800 tons of cargo were taken from Al

limitations considered, it is estimated
that automobiles compared with mules
