, With an era . of municipal, progress
in prospect, Corvallis demands and must

is. for the purpose of finding out what

To-Night' s Special Attraction
The amusement loving public have a
treat in store in the appearance of
Miss Josephine Deffry and her capable
company at the opera house this Mon
day night, May 10. This company has
received most flattering comments
through the state and is the best popu

The Oregon Agricultural College has
shown its class in the wrestling game
by winning over Washington and Wash
ington State, thereby establishing her
claim to Northwest honors. Wrestling
has been stimulated in the Northwest
during- the past year and there will be
some, interesting amateur contests be
tween the colleges next winter. Bas
ketball, wrestling, boxing and other
indoor sports are of great value to young
men who do not care for outdoor ath
letics, as well as to football and base
ball men who desire to keep in training
during the winter months.
- Washington State has a strong, well
balanced team. Cooil and Nelson are
the stars, but there are good men in
every event and those who follow the
fortunes of Northwest track athletics
are proclaiming the Pullmanites as win
ners of the Conference meet, but they
will have to fight hard for; it. Corvallis
has arranged a dual meet with Wash
ington State in Pullman on May 11, and
there is every hope here that the
Orange team will win. Wolfe, of OAC,
will outclass Holm, the Pullman weight
thrower, and Hall should best him in
the hammer throw. Chapman, of OAC,
bids fair to win the high jump, although
Putman, Pullman's jumper, cleared 5
feet 9 inches in the meet with Idaho.
On Saturday next the Eugene lads
will begin a series of games with OAC
that will no doubt determine the state
hampionship. The Corvallis ball toss-
ers won this honor last year by winning
four straight games from Oregon, but
the teams will be evenly matched this
season and there will be some good
sport when they come together.
"Father Tom" Kelly ha developed, a
good team at Eugene and Corvallis has
boasted of a strong team for two sea
sons. ' It is pleasing to note the im
provement in the quality of college
baseball here in the Northwest, al-
tnougn the sport is not supported as
heartily as it should be.
All Benton County
Copious rains have been falling over
this section of country since Saturday
night and every farmer in Benton coun
ty is now rejoicing in consequence, t. is
being the first real rain the Central
Willamette Valley has received since
the first day of April. It was gladly
welcomed by farmers in this part of
the state. Though not enough has yet
fallen to relieve the pressing need for
moisture oh the Valley f armsf the rain
means, hundreds of dollars to Benton
County farmers. 4

- Starvation. .
. After about the fifth or sixth day
of starvation the pain oi hunger
ceases to be felt, and the sharp
edge of craving becomes dulled. In
the ultimate stages of starvation
the feelings become so benumbed
that the senses, as messengers of
intelligence, cease to act. There is
practically no pain, and the mind
lapses into a state of incoherence
and sleepless delirium.
