FIX UP YOUR PROPERTY
A tenantable house is a very
difficult thing to get at present in
' Corvallis, those with modern im
provements and the only kind
the maioritv of the people want
nowadays. Property owners will
find that the time has gone by
when most any kind of a ramble-
shack of a place will rent Peo

satisfied unless their place of res
idence is provided with all the
conveniences that modern times
provide, and they are going to
have them no matter what the
cost. You will find that a ma-

how they like the country, before
they make any investments. At
this season it is nearly impossible
to rent a farm and as a conse

town property. People who

renters if they would just loosen

President Taft will be made
the center of a big demonstra
tion when he comes to Portland
October 2. There will be no
private entertaining for the big
President, but he will be on
view by the public throughout
his visit. There will be a big
parade in the President's honor,
in which he will ride, and where
he may be seen by the thousands
who will want to have a iook at
the nation's executive. Presi
dent Taft will be asked to make
an address at the Armory in the
afternoon and attend a banquet
at the Commercial Club at night
on October 2nd. Plans for
Sunday, which will be spent
here, are not made up yet, but
the President will probably at

mainder of the day resting.

On a tour of the Northwest to
get material for a series of
letters to his paper; the Chicago
Record-Herald, William E. Cur

correspondent in the world, was
a Portland visitor during the
past week.. In discuseing the
Rose City, he said: "Portland is
the best city on the Pacific Coast
and I would rather live here
than in any other city of which
I know. Portland is farther a
long than any other city on
the Pacific Coast; by that I mean
it is more mature than any
the big cities of the West'
These are strong words, coming

ATHER OF AMERICAN BICYCLE
Career of Colonel A. A. Pope, Manu
facturer and Good Roads Advocate.
Colonel Albert A. Pope, the noted
bicycle and automobile manufacturer,
who recently died at his summer home
in Cohasset, Mass., was born in Bos
ton May 20, 1843. When he was nine
years old, his father having failed in
business, he obtained employment on a
farm, and thereafter until he was nine
teen he peddled vegetables, acted as
clerk in a store and sold machinery,
going to school during the winter
months. In 1862 he was commissioned
second lieutenant in the Thirty-fifth
regiment Massachusetts volunteers,
which had been, organized in response
to President Lincoln's call lor isou.uuu
As a soldier he served in the princi
pal Virginia campaigns, with Burnside
in Tennessee, with Grant at Victsburg,
with Sherman at Jackson, Miss., and
commanded Fort Hell at the attack on
Petersburg. He was commended for
bravery, and in recognition of his serv
ices he was several times promoted.
He was brevetted major "for gallant
conduct" in the battles at Knoxville,
Poplar Springs Church and in front of
Petersburg. . "
When the war was- over Colonel
Pope returned to Boston and settled
down to business in the manufacture
of shoe supplies. This business pros
pered to a large extent, and in 1877 he
became interested in the bicycle, and,
realizing the possibilities in the devel
opment of its use, he determined to
employ his energies and capital in that
direction. -A company was organized,
and in the following year he perfect
ed his plans for the manufacture of
bicycles 'on a large scale. He . over
came the widespread prejudice against
the new machine and witbin a few
years created a market which not only
kept his company . working to its full
est capacity, but resulted in the or
ganization of scores of rival compa
nies. As the bicycle craze spread over
the United States he became known
as "the father of the American bi
Colonel Pope was one of the pioneers
in the movement for good roads and
for several years delivered speeches
on the subject before chambers of
commerce, boards of trade and other
organizations. He carried his cam
paign to such an extent "that in 1892
he began an extended correspondence
with the press, legislators, educators,
writers and all classes whose influence
he desired to obtain for the advance
ment of his project. He kept up the
educational campaign through the dis
tribution of literature until finally
more than half of the states of the
"Union were advocating better high
ways. . .
He was one of the first American
manufacturers -to recognize the Impor
tance of the automobile, and as the
bicycle lost In popular favor the com
pany of "v which he was . the founder
and for many years the active head
began the manufacture of the horse

they arrived and he insisted they j

that night, which they did and '
the next morning he was on his

MASCOT FOR LATHAM.
Daring Monoplanist Given Live Pigeon
by Fair Lover of Aeronautics.
That Latham has twice failed to
cross the English channel is not due to
the neglect of the fair lovers of aero
nautics. They have been on hand at
both of the important flights and have
given him every encouragement. The
aviator has been waiting for the op
portunity to emulate the feat of Ble
riot, and the tedium is relieved by the
lively Interest of the women who flocfe
from Calais and the other nearby
towns. As a mascot one of the young
women the other day presented to the
daring monoplanist a live pigeon.
She did not share the popular supe..'
stltion that a pigeon is an unluck '"
bird. She took the view that with t. -guidance
of one of these fliers thai
cross the channel repeatedly Latham
may be spurred to success. Latham, a
true gallant, promised that the pigeon
would from a silken ribbon show him
the aerial road to Dover when he next
attempts to cross the International gap.

All piscatorial artists who enjoy bass

there for big catches. Here's how he
He placed a number of shiners, or
live bait, and one or two small frogs
in glass bottles of two gallons' capaci

deep water from a small raft. : As the
big bass and pickerel tried in vain to
get the little fish in the glass inclosure,
Coffey, wno fished from a rowboat
nearby, dropped 'his baited line close
to the buttles, -and the assembled fish
were caught as fast as they could be
