There will be a public meeting of the
voters of Corvallis ' held next Wednes
day evening, May 12, to consider the
selection of men for the" various city
offices at the election to be held Mon
day, May 17. It is hoped that every.
body will turn out,, as in this way the
most available candidates can be con
sidered and a complete expression of
public opinion secured.
Corvallis has no lack of efficient men
for the municipal offices to be filled this
year, the only trouble seeming to be in
getting their consent to go on the
ticket.

Rich Chicagoan Took Time by Forelock
by Buying Art Store's Entire Stock.
Acting under a sudden impulse to
prepare tor next cunstniiis. ti. l..
Cramer, a rich Ohicasoau, bought at
auction the other afternoon the entire -
stock of a big board walk art store in
Atlantic City. N. J. While a hundred
asping patrons, who had hoped to
buy a picture or cup and saucer, look
ed on amazed the Chicagoan coolly
proposed to buy the entire place and
as coolly bid in tue stock or "old
masters," decorative electroliers and
other' wares for something more than
$15,000.
Cramer drew attention to himself In
the last few days by clearing thou
sands of dollars in trades made In
board walk brokers' offices. Seeking a.
less exhilarating pastime, he entered
the art stove, saw several pictures-
he liked, then, weary of buying them
one by one, said:
"Say, what do you say to putting up
the whole place and giving a fellow a
chance to get through?"
"The entire stock is for sale, and we
would just as lief sell it in a lump,"
replied the proprietor: '
That's me." returned Cramer.
A customer has asked that this en
tire place be put up .at auction," an
nounced the proprietor to a hundred or
more strollers who had come in to
make- small purchases. Nobody object
ed, and the sale was started at 82,500,
bid by Cramer. . Several wealthy spec
tators decided to take a hand, and the
bids mounted by thousands until it
reached the final figure. Cramer gave
his check for the amount before the.
crowd had filed out and at once gave
orders that the purchase be packed
and shipped to his country home in
Indiana. '
I have always desired to be pre
pared for Christmas," Cramer said.
"This time I bet I'll have enough to
go around without worrying next December."
Experts who have knowledge of the
stock say the purchaser has a big bar
gain. The stock includes pictures
bought in Europe.
Expensive.
"I should never have thought that
studying would have cost so much
money."
"Yes. father, and if you ofaly knew
how little I have studied!" Judge.

HEART IN CANAL WORK.
Injured- Foreman of Dredging Wanted
to Know Excavation Records.
Here is a little human Interest story
which comes from the Panama canal
zone: '-
Laurent Roquebert, general foreman
of the dredging at La Boca, has been
a dredgeman at the Pacific entrance to
the canal for twenty years or more
In fact, . since the time of the old
French company. While at his work
on the evening of March 29 he was
crushed between two clapets and has
been lying critically ill at Apcon hospi
tal. Two days after the accident the
resident engineer at La Boca went to
see him and was greeted with the
question: 1 ' ; " - '
"How many yards?" ' Requebert re
ferred to the amount of dredgjng that'
had been done in March, and when
told that all records had been broken
he asked: '
"And the Gopher what did she do?"
The Gopher, like the dredgemaster,
is a heritage from the French. It is a
seagoing Scotch ladder dredge that' has
been at work at La Boca almost con
stantly for twenty-five years. Roque
bert was at one titne the master on
this dredge, and his confidence that it
was the best worker in canal excava
tion was unshaken until October, 1908,
when dredge No. 1 of the Colon first
took the record.
In answer to the question, "And the
Gopher what did she do?" he was
told, "She', holds the record by ver
3,000 yards." .
. The dredge master closed his eyes,
sighed in satisfaction and said, "i am
so happy!"

Coal Operator Declares Carbon In It
Is a Boon to Health.
Smoke is a blessing to the world and
a boon to health, according to a recent
statement by W. P. Rend, coal mag
nate, in reply to an address by Secre
tary E. R Pritchard of the Chicago
board of health declaring it a nuisance.
"This talk about smoke being a curse
is all nonsense," llr. Reiki declared.
"Take the coal operator, who is at all
times breathing not only smoke, but
coal d'u:;t in addition. His lungs are
blackwith both, and yet he is one of
the healthiest men in the World. In
all my experience among coal oper
ators I know of only one who died of
tuberculosis.
"The carbon in the smoke is a boon
to health. As the smoke ascends the
carbon contained in it kills germs of
every kind of disease and purifies the
air,' and it is this that this new clags
or "reformers' would do away with."
