siderable, list of users of the Indepen
dent Telephone Company besides Cor
vallis and Albany is Alsea, Bellfoun

ville, Plainview, Sweet Home, Scio,
Tangent and Peoria. ,
bmce the directory was issued sev
eral new names have been added and
these are on a supplemental list which
occurs 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
numbers instead of by names. This is
not so milch on account of ' the com
pany's convenience as it is for the con
venience of the subscriber and his more
prompt and 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
operator can get parties much more
quickly. . . -.
The directory also contains an invi
tation to all patrons to visit the office
any day from two to five o'clock in the
afternoon to witness the operation of
the new and up to date exchange which
is complete with all modern appoint
ments. - J . J. LiOWE, 4

section will be represented by J. W.

There will be a strong effort made to
have the next meeting of the State
Grange held at Corvallis and the dele
gates from here will do their best to
bring this about. - .
In connection with this meeting of
the State Grange,. State Lecturer J. J.
Johnson has Called a conference of all
the lecturers of local granges in . the
state to meet in McMinnville, Thursday
afternoon, May 13, communications sent
out to the 125 granges in the state
several weeks ago, asking lecturers to
attend this conference, have resulted in
nearly 100 favorable answers, so that
State Lecturer Johnson estimates that
at least 90 lecturers will attend the con
ference. The object of the conference
is to render more effective the educa
tional plan that was adopted . in the
fearly part of the year, and generally
carried out, by which a uniform system
of topics has been considered by each
grange in the state, with the assistance
of the state librarian, who furnished
reference books on topics discussed.
The plan was found the best yet used
in the state, according to reports, and
resulted in a wide range of practical
topics being discussed,' including public
schools,! good roads, .. betterment of
health conditions on the farm and im
proved methods of-farming. The. plan
has worked succesfully, said Mr. John
son thenks to the. co-operation of Miss
Marvin, state librarian; Miss Nellie Fox,
of thePortland Library; State Superin
tendent J. H. Ackerman, 'Dr. Withy
combe and other educators. At the
conference the system will be discussed
and improved. It will be made more
practical and mOre local through suggestions-
of local lecturers.
This educational conference will be a-
new feature, in the history of the Ore
gon State Grange, and will result in
nearly doubling the attendance, accord
ing to responses received. - It is thought
the conference will become an annual
affair, and will be officially recognized
as such by the State Grange. The edu
cational plan as carried out by the
State Lecturer Johnson during the year
has been recognized as the most ad
vanced step yet taken by the grange
-order in this state or elsewhere.
It is expected that the State Grange
will take action condemning the pro
posed referendum against the OAC
appropriation, as most of the subordin
ate granges have declared by resolu
tions against the referendum, besides
State Master Buxton has issued a
statement against it. . .
