MEN OF THE FUTURE.
No better or more forcible il
lustration could be shown of the
kind of men who will make the
future history of Oregon than
that shown today on the college
campus in this city.
It would not require a very
keen student of human nature
to arrive' at the conclusion that
the coming years may be safely
entrusted to such manly young
men as the ranks of the cadeu

Tomorrow will be the day for the
big horticultural and agricultural meet
ing at the court house and every person
in Benton county should make it their
especial business to be present.
The program is one of the best that
has ever been planned, the speakers all
being able and experienced in the sub
jects assigned to them, and. there will
be an opportunity afforded for acquir-
I ipg practical information on the ques
j tions which most affect the fruit
grower, the farmer and the house-
that could not be obtained
from any other source.
With such eminent speakers as W.
K. Newell, president , of the State
Board of Horticulture; H. M.-: Wil
liamson, secretary of the same board;'
W. J. Kerr, president OAC; Professors ;
A. B. Cordley and G. I. Lewis and j
Miss Juliet Greer, of OAC and Walter
S. Brown, who selected Benton county j
in preference to all other sections of j
Oregon for fruit growing, there is cer
tain to be some helpful talks given.
' Let everybody turn out and show
their appreciation of the good work
that the Commercial Club, the Benton
County Court and Booster Waggoner
and fruit inspector Roberts are taking
to bring this section to the front.
Good News From Seattle.
Realizing that Seattle's reputation
for hospitality is at stake, the Restaur
ant Keepers' Association, which repre
sents 52 of the largest cafes in the city,
has pledged itself not to raise the prices
of meals during the period that ' the
Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition is in
progress. The association has already
signed an agreement with the Cooks
and Waiters, the Waitresses and Bar
tenders' unions to maintain the present
scale of wages until June 1, 1910. With
this agreement, the restaurant men
know in advance that wages for help
will not be increased during the Exposi
tion season. This action of the restaur
ant keepers will be glad news to per
sons contemplating visiting Seattle dur
ing the fair. . - -
Button Making at Home.
Corvallis has one industry that is not
generally found outside the larger cities
and it is proving to be a great conveni
ence, especially to the ladies. This
new enterprise is the manufacture of
covered buttons and it is in operation
at J. M. Nolan & Son's store. The
capacity of the machine is practically
unlimited, but the output now for local
trade is about six gross of buttons per
day. '.'Shorty" Gagnon is the operator
and he is timing out buttons that will
compare favorably wi-h the best made
in the east.
There will be splendid racing tomor
row afternoon at the Corvallis Driving
Park'. . Every lover of the sport should
turn out. .

Subscribers Should Call by Numbers to
Get Prompt Service
Call by number. The
Telephone Company has a new direc- j
tory out and the same is now being dis- j
tributed.. The directory contains a lfst '
of all the towns in Oregon, Washing
ton and British Columbia which may be
reached over the Independent Tele
phone line, and this list is supplemented
bv a map of the Northwest coast with
the line marked thereon. j
The directory proper is. a complete
list of all the subscribers of the Inde-
pendent Telephone Company in Benton
and Linn counties alphabetically ar-
ranged, and in addition there is a busi-;
ness directory classified accordine: to

Since the directory was issued sev
eral new names have been added and
these are on a supplemental list in the
front part of the directory.
It is the intention of the company to
furnish their subscribers each month
with a supplemental list showing new
telephones that have been added, and
also changes that have been made since
the last directory was issued. In this
way the subscriber's directory will be
kept up to date. The' 'company espec-
ially requests that their patrons call by
number instead of by name. This is
not so much on account of the com
pany's convenience as it is for the con
venience of the subscriber and his more
prompt aud . efficient service. When
parties are called by names, it is fre
quently necessary for the operator to
consult her directory requiring a cer
tain amount of time and thus delaying
the call. If subscribers will use the
numbers, this will be avoided and the

P6HTUSD ROSE FESTIVAL
Big Show Will be Held on Lewis and
Clark Fair Grounds.
A contract has- been closed for the
lease of the California building on the
Lewis and Clark Fair grounds for the
next annual floral exposition of the
Portland Rose Society. The building is
in the form of a Greek cross, 200x200
feet, and contains more display space
than either the Forestry or Oriental
buildings, which have been used in the
past. ' '
Mrs. John W. Minto, president of the
Rose Society, expects the entire avail
able space will be taken up by local ex
hibitors. Request will be made of the city au
thorities to keep the Forestry building
open both days and nights during the
Rose Show, as an easy means of access
to the California pavilion.
According to figures being prepared
by the various committees of the Rose
Society, there should be no fewer than
4 W,- .4,A--a 1
2o00 individual exmoits at the coming
show. This is estimated from requisi
tions for space coming in.
The exhibition space will be a frifla
more than 20,000 square feet, or t!out
half rf sc'; l rcses. Districting
of the citj ic? guwhtrlny exhibits has
been undertaken and community .rk
in iv-ju ;ing interest in all parts oi' the
city will be started directly.
Mcumouth Defeats Amendment.
At a special election held in Mon
mouth Wednesday the proposed amend
ment to the charter, which would grant
a large? bond issue for municipal light
or water plant, was defeated, and at
the same time an amendment was
adopted providing for retaining the
road polltax for use on the town streets.
The committee having in charge the
raising of funds for the entertainment
of the Oregon State Encampment, G.
A. R., in Corvallis, , June 2, 3, 4, was
out yesterday securing subscriptions,
and met with the most gratifying suc
cess. Everybody in the city should
contribute to 1;his fund so that the hos
pitality extended here to the veterans
may be talked about for years to come.

ice cream social to be given this even
