Salem Statesman, Editorial: "Cor
vallis mourns the loss of one of her
most enterprising citizens and business
men, Simon L. Kline, who died last
week after a brief illness known as
pleurisy of the heart. Mr. Kline had
vast business interests in that city and
community and was very popular with
a great many people all over the Wil
lamette valley and the entire state.
His parents came to that 'city in the
early days, and by hard work and care
ful business application accumulated a
considerable amount of real property
which in their adult years proved of
great value to themselves and their
family. Simon Kline followed in their
footsteps to some extent, and was pro
prietor of the : leading merchandise
store in that city and in Benton county.
He was one of four children, of whom
two are living; one of these a sister-
is a most enthusiastic believer in the
upbuilding of her home city and is
numbered among the leaders in the
matter of its progressiveness."

People who have occasion to pass
over the Mary's river bridge at the
south end of the city say that it is in a
dangerous ' condition. : Neyer a heavy
bridge, this structure has reached the
stage where it not only vibrates stren-1
uously, but it is given to swaying side
wise. The matter has been mentioned
at different, times recently and this
morning sl couple of rather conservative'
citizens insisted that the bridge is so
far from being in ideal condition that
they were afraid ' to ' stand on
as vehicles pass over. : A. short time
ago a portion of the bridge was re
placed but this has little to do with
the strength pf the structure.
Rod Waggoner, press agent of "The
Time, The Place and The Girl," arrived
in the city this afternoon to complete
arrangements for the' appearance here
on Monday, Sept. 27th. This big mu
sical play has never before been pre
sented in Corvallis and it is safe to say
it is as large an organization as ever
visited the city, and comes direct from
playing to crowded houses at the Bun
galow Theatre, Portland. The company
numbers about sixty people and is head
ed by Robert Pitkin and Jessie Huston
and includes the Pennant Winning
Beauty Models and the "Pee wee Kid
dos," who are famously well known for
their dancing. The production is car
ried complete by the company in special
baggage cars. The seats will be on
sale early. "
A citizen Vof Corvallis makes the
statement that he had to wait forty
minutes yesterday in order to cross the
ferry. Another reliable personage said
in this office this morning that at differ
ent times yesterday the traffic was
blockaded and many people' inconveni
enced.' Punderson Avery made the
statement that "the ferry is mighty
slow business" and that a bridge would
be better. He also mentioned the fact
that twelve or fifteen years ago a
strenuous attempt was made to get a
bridge across the Willamette here, but
the people did not consider themselves
able to bear the burden. The city is
now double its size of those days and
the county is richer. Mr. Avery thought
it might be possible to build a bridge
here now. Another citizen remarked
to the writer that he wondered why the
County Court could not see its way
clear to build this bridge as a monu
ment to their progressiveness and busi
ness foresight.
The Gazette-Times is willing to af
firm that S. B. Bane is a scholar and
a gentleman, as well . as a first-class
vegetable gardener, a royal Democrat
and dyed-in-the-wool Methodist. That
which calls forth this spontaneous com
bustion was the presentation of a large
box of onions, carrots, beets, peppers,
beans, cabbage, cucumbers, corn,
tomatoes and lettuce vegetables fit
for kings and queens. S. B. Bane did
not - make this gift in order to gain
notoriety or favorable mention, but he
made i to convince the editor of this
pusilanimous .sheet that" there is at
least one vegetable gardner doing busi
ness in and near this city with marked
success. Jhe G.-T,, acknowledges the
corn, and the other truck as well, and
at this time is inclined to say that if
the women who fail to find vegetables
to their liking will but phone to Mr,
Bane, they will have no futher cause
to complain. - This Corvallis gardener
raises all kinds of vegetables and they
are perfect specimens of - their kind
and Mr. Bane will deliver.
