Corvallis Times. BY B. F. IRVINE.' Official Taper of Benton Connif, COKVAIXIS, OREGON JTXE 18, 1903. THE BACCALAUREATE IThe Exercise Occurred Sunday Morn ing in the Armory Many There. The baccalaureate is always a popular feature of Commencement at the Agricultural College. Or dinarily, the crowd . in attendance on that event is as large as on any of the many interesting occasions of - Commencement time. That ot last Sunday's baccalaureate exercise was no exception to the rule. , It .is estimated that fully 1,200 people occupied seats in the Armory at the morning hour. : The sermon was by Dr John H Coleman, the hew president of Willamette University. His theme was, "The United States in the "World's Conflict." The text was "He has not dealt so with any na tion." . The address was original and in" terestmg. 1 he speaker said many good things, some, of which sent an . audible ripple of laughter through the audience, He showed the tendency of nations to -fall after they had risen, pointing out that but two nations of , antiquity still survive. The unusual resources of the American nation were set forth. The race is quicker and more energetic. The mineral de posits in the mountains and the fertility of the plains are the great est. . - In 25 years, he said, our na tion will be probably ten times as rich as any nation. The prob lem of one man monopolizing vast interests was pointed out as a question of immiment importance to the country, and one that must be solved. Men have a right to ac cumulate, he said, but when they push their accumulations to the point wnere it grinds and oppresses women and children it becomes the public's business ana must be sup pressed. The speaker concluded that Providence had peculiarly fit ted the American nation to be the leader and evangelizer of the world and declared that if the rigbt were -followed the United - States would "lie so acknowledged;" otherwise the nation would fall. . V , The big auditorium presented a a fine view to the eye, . during - the baccalaureate - hour.- . The - stage was crowded with people, compris ing the "faculty, : city ministers, choir and others. . In the front row of seats below, were the 30 odd members of the graduating -class. In the galleries and main floor, nearly every seat had an occupant. There were decorations of pink streemers and : evergreens. Potted plants and ferns were placed about the stage. The day was superb as "was the occasion. ' Other features of the ' exercise "were, Mendelssohn's St. Paul by the chorus, hymn by congregation, in-, vocation, Baldwin's Te Deum, by the chorus, scripture lesson, pray er, response, lord's Prayer, sung by the chorus; Kipling's jieces ioiial, by the chorus; hymn by the congregation and benediction. WATCHING JUPITER GOOD SHOOTING That is What Young Folks do Now ' ' - Some Old Ones do, too. - j " It is popular in town now to watch Jupiter.'.The big planetis for the first time in several years, in apposition with the earth, and his nearness to us makes : him by far the biggest star in the heavensJ A man who watched him r the -other night, said next morning that the planet appeared to be . as large as tha palm of a man's hand, . Al so that it had horns." Anotherwho sat up until one o'clock in . the morning said that it looked about as big as a dollar, and that it did not have horns, though one well de fined ray, pointing to the southeast was clearly visible. . . lYoung folks about town -spend much time watching the star now. It seems t6 have a fascination for them. Perhaps it is because the star does not rise until after mid night. It rises a little earlier each evening, however, and - later on will appear as the evening" star. In its revolution around the sun, Jupiter makes a trip of- 1,500 mil lion miles, requiring - twelve --years to: make . the journey. . Several moons revolve around it, four , of which can be seen with a telescope with a lens of four inches, and . two of the larger ones with an ordinary field glass. There could be no ; more profit able occupation for thoughtful; per sons who wish to treat - their eyes j to some of the great sights of as tronomy than by looking at Jupit er with a telescope. . The striped and spotted disc of the great planet, brilliant with contrasted colors, and ceaseless in its change of detail is a chapter in the history v of crea tion as legible to one who knows how to read it ; as are the baked tablets ot Nineveh to. the 'AsSyriol ogist. But it carries the mind back to a time infinitely beyond the ear liest dates of human history and beyond the era when the oceans were formed and "the first contin ents were born. r ' ; . Jupiter is a world now about that stage in ; existence " which is dimly hinted at in the opening verses of Genesis. Its garden of Eden and its Adam and Eve, with their idyl of dawning love and their legend of original sin, are yet . to College Cadets did it The Annual Contest Burnaugh First. The annual junior cadet target contest was held Saturday ; on the range near Mary's river dam. The day was ideal and some remarkably good scores were, made. The ranges were 100' yards and " 200 yards offhand; 300 5-ards, kneel ing or sitting; and 400 - sad ' 500 yards lying down. . The contest- i ants had s shots at each range. The highest possible score was 125. '; -'r..-:: O; Eirst place was won by E L Burnaugh with the following score: 100 yards, 22; 200 yards, 22; 300, 18; 400, 22; 500, 12; total 96.

'' He would . teach - - them how small they and their ' works are after all. : Or perhaps . he would stimulate their ambition to attempt the cornering of a bigger -world, and thus relieve this one of their presence. " - ; - '- - ' Jupiter will be in a more '. favor able position for telescopic observ ation this summer than he was during his last apposition, and as- tromoners are preparing to tal advantage of . the opportunity . to learn more about. what is going on upon his curiously chaotic surface. Several observers think there is something peculiar about the north temperate zone of the huge planet. Singular spots have from - time : to time broken into view there as if tremenduo'us volcanoes had spout ed black ashes up through a cur- of brilliant - vapors. And there the winds appear to be more active than anywhere else, and contradictory motions, . difficult to explain, manifest themselves among the cloudy belts and spots. In short Jupiter is the - scene of the play of energies v ; so immense and varied that one must be pre pared for a surprise every "time he comes back into the range of vis ion. ' ' - Seven hundred workmen from var ious parts of the United States and Canada, visited Corvallis Monday. Nearly every state in the. Union was represented. There were ten coaches of the excursionists. They stopped but half an hour in Corval lis, and the passengers did not leave the railroad station. -v ". They were met at the station by several hundred townspeople. A committee rrom the local lodges of A O U W and Degree of Honor was there, and so were - nearly ; all the members of those, lodges in town. They presented flowers to the visitors, and afforded all possible information. On the train en route from Portland badges bearing the names of the local lodges and the date of the excursion were distribu ted among V the delegates from abroad, and were highly appreciat ed. --- -.- - All the -visitors were, delighted with the Willamette Valley. One ofthem from the sunny South: "I am to old too come to Oregon my self; but I have two boys and a girl, and I am going to give theirfj the best educaton I can, and then ell them to come out West." After a stop of half an hour they took the train over the westside for Portland. lt came out of Portland on the eastside, and stopped for two hours st Salem. There the visitors were welcomed by the governor in an address, and several of them re sponded. From Salem the . train passed on Coy Albany for '.-half an hours stop, and then came to Cor vallis. '.- FORG ED CHECK A Corvallis Business Man the Victim - Work ofa Smooth Stranger. About $40 was lost by a Cor vallis business man in the. cashing of a forged check last week. ; The buyer was August Fischer, and the person who played the i game was a smooth stranger who has since dis appeared.' 'rf''Z-::'"': f- The method by which the check was cashed is new, and there is. no surprise that it worked. 0 The crook went to' the mill and pur-chased-about $3 worth of mill feed He ordered it sent to a house near the Corvallis & Eastern depot, say ing he had moved there with his family. :,.' He . casually mentioned," too, that he had been working for Gus Harding for some time. When it came time to pay for the mill feed, he produced a ' check for $44. 25, with ' 'Gustive Harding" as the signature. It was drawn, on the Corvallis bank.- and was ap parently all right. " . Mr Fischer ac cepted the check, and paid over -the difference, about $40. The strang er took the money and has not since been seen. " " All this happened on Tuesday of last week.- The check was laid away with others. ' Nothing more was thonght of the incident '" until last Saturday, four days after the transaction, when the Harding check was presented at the bank by Mr Fischer for payment. There the bank officials discovered that the cheek was not " genuine. In the signature the name was spelled "Gustive." " Besides the hand writing was not that of Mr Hard ing, Subsequent investigation proved the truth of the surmise that the check was a forgery and accordingly worthless. The mat ter was put into the hands of the officials, but the long start the criminal had iu the premises makes the "chance of his detection almost hopeless. ,: Don't Torgd u$ When you want clothing, we can save you money - Nobby all wool snits from $7 to 14. .
