"BIG HEAD" BEEF MATTER
The Gazette-Times considers
the "big head" beef matter
Closed until the officials have
passed upon the case in question.
Attorney Bryson has said that
the purported butchering and
Bale of "big head" beef will be
investigated and there - is evi
dence that this invegtigation is
now going on. The continued
publication of idle rumor and
gossip about this matter would
accomplish no good purpose and
only make the day's meat ration
less palatable. In a compara
tively short time the public wil
have access to the facts as sifted
by men having no purpose other
than to arrive at the exact data
in the matter. .
Space is given to a letter from
Wren only because of the fact
that it comes from a man who in
former publications has given
-evidence that he believes al
- other men are cowards and that
most newspapers are afraid to
tell the truth. Mr. Pickens' let
ter adds nothing to what has
been stated heretofore and, con
Sidering the fact that there is
no longer excuse of agitation, the
letter is not wholly opportune,
However, to not publish it would
give Mr. Pickens and others as
narrow as himself evidence that
their conclusipns in regard to
men and newspapers have some
foundation. "This class of men
imagines that the failure of
others to take up every con
scienceless screed that comes to
hand is proof of their . cowardice
and culpability. In this instance
Mr. Piokens has hit upon some
thing of vital importance to the
public, and the public may wel
.thank him for- it, but no well
balanced man, with naught but
good intentions ever meets vital
situations in this way. He goes
to the proper official first, and
not to the public press; else he
he goes to both at the same time,
When the officials refuse or neg
lect to at, then the press may
f be properly resorted to. The
Gazette-Times is in possession of
information at this time leaving
no doubt that the strength of
the eause Mr. Pickens represents
would have been "served much
better by giving the District At
torney the opportunity to inves
tigate before the beef matter
was given to the public This
evidence will be forthcoming a
WHO'S AT FAULT?
The man who 'wrote glorious
thinsrs of . Eue-ene. nublished
another column, wrote of Cor
Vallis, also, and told only
weeds, bad streets and . worse
walks. Was that his fault
the fault of-the people of Cor
Vallis? i Eugene is beautiful to
day, not so much -because her
; citizens have spent huge sums
money 7 in' beautification, v but
rather because men and women
have been making an intelligent,
concerted and effective cam
fiaisrn for civic improvement -in
yards and parkings, for cleanli
ness, flowers, uniform planting
of trees, etc. They have given
effort rather than money, and
Corvallis can be made beautiful
with little money. With cement
walks, which are a necessity,
and "curbs which may be added
at little cost, Corvallis can. be
made as beautiful as Eugene
simply by giving a little effo'rt
to the planting of trees, lawns
and flowers. And . every man
will live happier for lending a
hand to make HIS city a real
city beautiful. ' ;'
THE RIGHT MOVE
It is exactly right and proper
that Benton county should be
represented at the Albany Apple
Fair. It makes no difference
whether the county wins first.
second or third prize, or whether
it takes any prize at all, if fairly
creditable apples from Benton
are on display there. The peo
ple who are there will be able to
detect little vital difference be
tween the various displays, for
all apples . will be of size and
beauty fit for kings. However;
Albany's interests ; are our own,
and vica versa, so each of . these
two cities should be glad to ' join
heartily in the effort of the
other. - The coming fair will be
good for Albany, good for the
Willamette valley, and.it will re
suit in great good to Benton
county, which is just now mak
ing an f effort ; horticultural!
The County Court will be com
mended for extending reason
able aid in this matter.
A play that will touch your heart.

Eugene is one of the . busiest
places in Oregon, and one of the
most progressive and enterpris
ing. It is situated about mid
way between the Washington
and California boundaries and is
the seat of Lane county, which
is as big as some of the eastern
states, being 120 miles long and
50 miles wide, and covered with
what they tell me here is the
heaviest "stand" of timber in all
the world. Eugene is a city of
homes; it has about 10,000 people
who live in comfortable cottages
with well-kept yards and shade
trees and flowers, which give it
a very attractive appearance
The inhabitants are firmly con
vinced it is the finest place out
side of Paradise. ,; sThere are five
miles of asphaltum . pavements
and concrete ' sidewalks; the
business blocks are as ' imposing
as those of a large pity The
high school is the largest and
finest in the state outside of
Portland, and had nearly 500
students last year. There are
nve other school buildings, a
$50,000 Y. M. C. A. building and
a $100,000 hotel is now in course
of erection. It has been a "dry'
county for four years, and the
law is strictly enforced. The
saloon question is brought 4ip
annually, but the majority in
favor of prohibition, has increas
ed at each successive election.
Many of the "earlier "settlers
came from the southern states
and when the civil war broke out
in 1861 the people r of :i Lane
county seceded from the United
States and organized what was
called "the Long Tom Confeder
acy," because the leader of the
movement bore "that nickname.
As two of my registered sheep were
shot and killed by hunters last year, and
recently two of my best ewes were torn
up by hunting dogs, I haye therefore
given strict orders to my men employed
to gather evidence to prosecute all tres
passers with gun or dog found on my
premises, and particularly to shoot and
kill all dogs found on the farms. So'
that no one may be taken by surprise,
I publish this notice. ,

FATE OF A FALLEN FIGHTER,
John R. Walsh of Chicago Sentenced
- : to Federal Prison. '
Unless the supreme court of the
United States Intervenes, John B.
Walsh, former railroad builder, bank
er and' politician ' of Chicago, . must
serve five years in the federal prison
at Fort Leavenworth. The United
States, circuit court of appeals has -so

millionaire. '; J '"S ,-;i'"' '; ..
Walsh was found guilty of the mis
appropriatioh of the funds of the Chi
cago National bank on Jan. 23, '1908.
twenty months ago.- The verdict came
at the crisis of a career spectacular in
its rise. Walsh had achieved recogni
tion as a railroad builder and banker
after starting as a. newsboy in Ran
dolph street. '
He was a newsboy who became a
multimillionaire, a power in politics, a
ruler of men. one of the greatest finan
cial characters in the country, whose
influence was felt through city, county,
state ah'd even national politics, and
he fell because he had won enemies;
because his creed of trampling upon all
who opposed him finally added to the
ranks of his enemies until they were
too powerful for him to fight against
Then they overthrew him, and the mil
lions vanished. .
His downfall ' came when he used
the funds of the Chicago National
bank, controlled by him, to put through
a railroad deal by which he "expected
to gain personally, according to the
Jury's verdict. That was the point
upon which the whole trial turned
whether "Walsh was acting for the good
of his banks or for the good of himself.

OLD AGE A DISEASE.
Much Interest Taken In Metch-
VIEWS OF FAMOUS DOCTORS.
Agree lo' Thin.kirrg That LargeHntes-
lino IS ivtsi n Cl UONl OCH UT WDMU I JT
Maladief Its Removal Impossible
Declares Dr." Wyeth of New York.
In medical circles throughout Amer
ica, especially in the larger cities, pub
lication of the discoveries of Professor
Elie Metcbnikoff, head "of the Pasteur
Institute in Paris,' to the effect that old
age constitutes an actual, definite dis
ease emanating from the large intes
tine, has been received with great in
. Professor Metchnikoff In experi
ments which he has been conducting
for several years has developed the
theory that death ie a disease, due to
the formation of putrefactive bacteria.
These bacteria, whJA produce deadly
pons. rorm in tne large intestine,,
and their effect is to poison the blood,,
causing the, hardening of the, blqptt

it is a wen known meaicai race that

take on the appearance of old age.
By analogy Professor Metchnikoff '
concludes that constant absorption of
some similar poison is responsible for
the early appearance of old age to
men. The eminent scientists connect
ed with the Pasteur institute and oth
er famous European specialists, ac
cepting this theory, have set to work:
to discover the means of ridding the
Intestine of putrefactive bacteria.
could Stave Off Death.
If an antidote powerful enough to
combat the poison germs is found
elates are confident that death can be
warded off Indefinitely. ,
"Professor MetchnikofTs discovery 5
may form an epoch In the annals of
medical science," said Dr. Raymond:
Ij. Ditmars, curator of the Bronx zoo
ln New York city. "It's a discovery
whicb. scientists have been hammer
ing away at for years. I have no doubt
that man could live Indefinitely if the
large intestine could be cut but safely.
But I'm afraid it can hardly be done
now. - ' .
"It is a striking fact that -animals
that have no large intestine live to
an advanced age. - Compared withv
other animals, old age develops In the
human being prematurely. Among the
animals that have no large intestine
that live to an extremely old age are
birds. They " preserve their youthful
agility and spryness to the end of
their long span.. 1 am told that some
of the Chinese sacred cranes without,
the large intestine live to be 1,000
years old. Turtles, too, whose intes
tine is greatly abbreviated, live very
much longer than man."
The "Mother" of Old Age.
Dr. Peter J. Gibbons of New York, a
well known physician, was enthusias-
"The large intestine can truly be
called the mother of old age," he said..
"Nearly all the troubles that afflict
the human race today come from that
one source the putrefaction of the
large intestine. Uric acid is a great,
trouble today, which has its seat in
the large intestine. The great trouble
is indican, which produces intestinal,
fermentation and causes destruction,
of the large intestine. If we could do
away with the large intestine, we
could do away with Brlght's disease,,
which is really the most common
cause of death today."
"There is no doubt that bacteria in
the large . intestine cause a great
amount of suffering and death," said
Dr. John A, Wyeth. one of the lead
ing surgeons of New York. "But to
say that one could live indefinitely
simply by removing the large intes
tine is the height of foolishness. I do
not believe tnat troiessor metenm
koff claims indefinite life through his:
discovery. Just now the discovery is:
of no practical benefit The operation:
to remove' the large intestine is so
dangerous that scarcely any one could
live through it" -
