Mrs. David Osborn and daughter
Edna went to Newport yesterday to
spend New Years. . - ', .
Salem needs $85,000 to run her busi
ness affairs and has levied a 6 1-2 mill
tax to get the amount.
QMiss Fay Armstrong has gone to
Paid Alto, 3al., to . spend a couple of
months with her sister, Mrs. a. ideat
ing. There will be a business meeting of

ical church Thursday evening at 7:30.
All come. ,

There will be a special meeting of
Canton Corvallis No. 18, Patriarchs
Militant. I. O. O. F.' in Odd Fellows
' Hall, Monday evening, Jan. 3, 1910.
A Grand Officer will be present to give
: instructions in the work. E. V. Haw
ley, Clerk, E..L: Strange, Captain.
I At, the special road meeting in Dis
i trict No. 1 held "yesterday afternoon a
j five mill tax was voted. C. W. LeVee
; called the meeting to order and Robert
j Wylie acted as secretary. C. W.
: Mitchell made a motion that the" tax
! be five mills, and the yote resulted:
; Seven "yeas" and no "nays." It was
: agreed that one half the tax should be
! spent on the main road and one-fourth
: on each side road. G. H. Lindeman
j was recommended as supervisor. The
j people of this district say their roads
: can be put into very good condition with
j a little expenditure and the right kind
of attention at the right time..
With 1222 in its school enumeration
Corvallis claims a population in the dis
trict of-5, 400. On the same basis Al
bany would have "6,200. Albany Demo
crat. But Albany's "boost literature"
and newspapers claim 7,000. Corvallis
has not at any time claimed more than
5000. 5400 was figured out 1 on the
basis used by other towns, but 'Corval-
i lis knows this to be exaggerated. The
Government census.-will have to" be
padded a hundred or so to make 5,000
for Corvallis, and probably it will have
to be v padded some to, make Albany
6,000 instead of the 7000 claimed.' It
isn't well to have our hopes too high
at the time when Uncle Sam's enumer
ators are about to make a count.
Looking One's Best.
It's a woman's delight to look her
best but pimples, skin eruptions, sores
and . boils rob life of joy. Listen!
Bucklen's Arnica Salye cures them;
makes the skin soft and velvety, it
glorifies the face. Cures pimples, sore
eyes, cold sores, tracked lips, chapped
hands. Try it. Infallible for piles.

The McKenzie & Moore Fun Makers
last night drew a packed house at the
Palace theater Where they put on the
charming, western drama, "The Des
perado." Each member of the com
pany appeared at his or her best and
the characters were ' each well sus
tained. Vin Moore, as the Chinaman,
was the best ever and his witty sayings
kept the audience in an uproar. This
play will be repeated tonight. The
moving pictures are above the average,
the subjects all being excellent.
At the Skating Rink tomorrow even
ing the Corvallis Athletic Club's basket
ballteam will play wih the. Indepen
dence Athletic Club team. This will
be a game on foot and the knowing
ones say it will be a 'hummer. The
Independence team claims to be out
after state championship honors, while
the local team will be made up of the
men who defeated O. A. C. a couple
of weeks ago. All of which insures a
good game. "Skeeter" Swan, one of
the best of the local"- bunch, says his
team, while good one, has no cinch in
this game and the boys have been doing
some hard preliminary work. The
Rink will be a good place at which to
spend a couple of hours on New Year's
eve. , : ' ' . : , '
F. F. Coolidge and family are here
from Frazier, Colorado, and if all things
look good to them they will remain,
that1 their boys may enter O." A; C.
They are now at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Marsh Armstrong, who are rela
tives. Mr. Coolidge was once a news
paper man in Colorado, and nearly
starved to death, as most newspaper
men do. . He stole a cow, ort somebody
gave him one, and he started a cattle
ranch. Free range for cattle was more
profitable than - writing free puffs for
neighbors,' hence he waxed prosperous.
Finally the coming of the Moffatt rail
road put the cattle ' business in his sec
tion to the bad and he decided to hike
for old Oregon where opportunity un
limited still exists. Mr. Coolidge has a
son who desires to specialize in raising
fine stock. If things work out proper
ly there will be, sooner or later, a sign
board over the entrance, to one of our
big farms: " "Coolidge & Sons' Pure
Bred Stock Farm." Here's hoping.
At the home of Mrs. W: J. Kerr yes
terday afternoon the College Folk Club
entertained in honor of Mrs: E. R.
Lake, who, with Mr. Lake, leaves for
Washington City about February 1st.
Japanese tea, served from a, genuine
Japanese tea set and prepared by a
Japanese culinary artist came first bn
the afternoon's program, then 500, at
which Mrs. C. M. McKellips anoVMrs.
McElfresh were winners. This was
followed by substantial refreshments.
At the proper time Mrs. McKellips gave
voice to the club's regret at the loss of
Mrs. Lake and extended best wishes
for her happness in the far i Eastern
tome. Mrs. McElfresh told a humor
ous story in which a little boy disgusted
with school ''and building " fires at the
school house was asked where he thought
he would go when he died. He said -he
guessed he would just keep on building
fires for school ma'ams. - The afternoon
was one of real pleasure and a splendid
testimonial of the esteem in which
Mrs. Lake is held.
