-The deputies are reported as
having been rather alert. They
inspected . a number of vehicles
and hunting bags, and in an in
stance created some bad feeling.
.One I of . them stopped County
Surveyor F; M. Wilkes who, was
driving along the road in pur-

Mr, Wilkes thinks this nothing

It is reported that there was
considerable violation of that
section of the law declaring
against shooting from the road.
Firing from vehicles in the road
is strictly forbidden but some of
this was done.
M.T.Burnett got the, limit
jfcowjiuajf. xie is incimea to ieei
that there are no more birds
than there were last year. He
hunted. over the burned area
south of Corvallis and ran into a
deputy every ten feet. Mr.
Burnett thinks that big fire . des
troyed many young birds as well
as old ones. Because of inabil
ity to tell whether the bird was
a male or female he missed
many good shots.
E. E. Wilson and M. H. Bauer,
who went to the Jess Foster
place and hunted, failed to bag
as many as ' the law permits.
Mr. Wilson says the Foster place
has ever been counted the best
hunting place in this section; but
yesterday the pheasants were
not in evidence.

A total . of five miles of side
walk has just been ordered by
the City ; Council. Most of this
walk , is' in the cement district,
though some is in far outlying
sections. The council wants Sixth
and Seventh streets, in particu
lar, paved from one end to the
other. - Municipal Judge Denman
is :now preparing the notices.
The Street Committee has been
investigating this matter for sottip
time and has decided to get rid
ot the bad wooden" walks, if pos
sible. In many places there is a
wooden walk on but one side of
the street, and the Street Com
mittee' wants ' cement walk - on
both' sides. : Until a list' is mad

A'fter mpre or less unpleasant
ness and an attempt to build a
wooden Valk in this cement dis
trict,' Mr.; Wygant finally gave in
and laid; a cement walk. Mr.
Davis neglected the matter and
finally , sold his lot to L. G.
PickeL This resulted in further
misunderstanding, as Mr. Pickel
claims to have bought the lot on
ah agreement that Mr. Davis
would meet assessments against
the property. The city wants
that ' cement walk built so Mr'
Davis was brought before the
Judge on a charge of violatiner

matter was gone into, Mr. Davis
indicated that he understood
matters differently and agreed
that if the charge against him
