Up to date, Cook has not made
the mistake of speaking dispar
agingly of Peary. On the other
hand, Peary has vexed : "more
than a few of his friends by his
insinuations in regard to Cook.
It is not difficult to understand
ho w a man like Cook, anticipat
ing the early return of a ' victor
ious Peary, and knowing the dif
ficulty of detection, might lay
false claim to the honor he
craves, and for a time at least
enjoy all the glory that comes to
a victor, but it is a little difficult
to understand how a great dis
coverer, confident of his own
ground and the falsity of his ri
val's claim, could so far forget
himself as to believe it advisable
to make his first words an attack
on one scarcely worthy of his no
tice. Peary's evident anxiety to
Astronomers say that Mars has
water on it, but that planet as a
residential place will not appeal
to some people until astronomers
can assure them that the Mar
tians are familiar with 20th cen
tury methods of diluting their
water. ,
The opening days at Mrs. J. Mason's
millinery parlors, corner Monroe and
Third streets, will be Friday -and Sat
urday, September 17-18, when she will
make a grand display of the most ele
gant line of pattern hats ever shown
in Corvallis. These handsome creations
in head dress are from the largest fash
ion centers in the east and are the latest
and most prevailing modes. A be
coming line of mourning hats,' just re
ceived from New. York, will also be
shown. The ladies are cordially invited
to call during these opening days and
see the newest ideas in millinery.
A petition, it is reported, will
shortly be circulated by the citi
zens of Newport asking the City
Council to cancel the franchise
given the Corvallis & Eastern
Railroad in 1907, allowing it to
put down a double track on Main
street in Newport. This street
follows the bay, and is the only
possible entrance for a road into
the city.
According to agreement, the
railroad was to have built into
the city within a year, and it
appears that the Corvallis ,&
Eastern merely wanted to con
trol the water front, a part of
which was desired for a sawmill
site by a large concern of which
Mr. Stein,, now a well-known
business man in Portland, and
-formerly of Michigan, was the
agent. . -
In the passing of S. L. Kline,
Corvallis and Benton county lose
a man of many virtues. That he
had faults, his best friends will
not deny, but that these were far
outnumbered by his excellent
traits will be conceded by all who
knew him. He was a clean man
morally, a first-class business
man, public spirited within rea
Bon, a genial, sociable gentleman
a man who measured well with
the average of mankind. In a
business way he builded solidly,
and more to the advantage of
Corvallis than to himself. The
business structure occupied by
the Kline store is in keeping with
the progress of the city and the
equipment even slightly ahead.
In this splendid building, his fine
home, and in all material things
; acquired, S. L. Kline evinced a
pride in the substantial,- the last
ing, rather than a love of tinsel,
Or gaudy show. His business
operations extended beyond the
confines of his store and it is said
of him that he furnished Benton
farmers their best market. Ir.
this he proved of inestimable val
ue to Corvallis. In public posi
tion he served the public faith
fully and ably, his service as a
member of the Water Commis
sion being highly commended by
his associates. From every view
point, S. L. Kline was a man
Corvallis can illy afford to spare.
It is extremely, sad that he
should be called away just at the
time when life probably looked
brightest to him. Having made
a success in a business way, he
had been gradually shifting the
burden of business responsibility
to a son in whom he had every
confidence. He felt that he. had
earned a rest and he intended to
get more of the joy there is in
life from closer companionship
With his family and in the dissi
pation of some of his earnings in
travel and indulgence of desires
long crushed back by a business
career marked by its tireless en
ergy and close application. In
apparent good health, with a de
lightful home, means to gratify
every reasonable wish, the com-
' radeship of his son, and the time
to accept and enjoy such honors
and pleasures as might come his
way, S. L. Kline seemed a man
to be envied, and but a few days
ago most men. would have been
glad to have exchanged prospects
with him. , But Death stalked in,
and the dream is ended whether
in greater glory no traveler hath
yet returned to say. But those
left behind, who dreamed the
dream with him, are bowed in
Borrow. - Except for the sudden
ness of this enforced leave-taking,
these suffer no keener an
guish than comes to the humblest
home; when father, mother, sister
or brother lie cold in death, but

presidents and directors are re
turning home to their thousands
of students carrying the glad
tidings of Oregon's fertility and
possibilities. These conventions
were secured through the unas
sisted effort of President Kerr)
of our State Agricultural College
and to him is due the gratitude
of Oregon and Portland for our
privilege to meet this body of
men. President Kerr was el
ected president of the National
Association during the conven
tion. Oregon has reason to be
very proud of her agricultural
college and doubly so of its pres
ident. He is a man of magnetic
presence, keen perceptibility
and the best friend the youth of
Oregon could have. We know
he is appreciated by the student
body of the college, as well as
byjnen of national prominence
with whom he is associated in
his work, and the Pacific North
west takes this opportunity of
congratulating Oregon on its
possession of Dr. Kerr as presi
dent of the State Agricultural
Care Jn Preparing Food.
In recent Tears scientists have
proved that the value of food is meas
ured largely by its purity; the re
sult is the most stringent pure food
laws that have ever been known.
One food that has stood out promi
nently as a perfectly clean and pur
food and which was as pure before
the enactment of these laws as it
could possibly be is Quaker Oats;
conceded by the experts to be the ideal
food for making strength of muscle
and brain. The best and cheapest of
all foods. The Quaker Oats Company '
is the only manufacturer of oatmeal
that has satisfactorily solved the prob
lem of . removing the husks and black
specks which are so annoying when
other brands are eaten. If you are
convenient to the store buy the reg
ular size packages; if not near the
