An unsnown miomam corres
pondent complains because the last
issue of the Times gave the - name of
the boy who was in jail and . did not
disclose the identity of the boy that
was fined for shooting China pheas

Corvallis was a busy town Sat
urday afternoon and evening. A
large number of pickers returning
from the hop fields were In town, and
so were many students. All of them
had money, and most were shopping.
Dealers and their clerks were kept on
the jump to satisfy the demand for
wares. Main street, after supper
echoed to the tramp of many hurry
ing feet, and the town wore an air of
busy life not unlike a bigger and bus
ier city.
Flouring mllla at Corvallis are
becoming famed as makers of fancy
flour. The taking of diplomas, medi
ate and awards by one or by the
other of them is a story that la fre
quently related. The latest is the
taking of the blue ribbon, or first pre
mium by the Benton County Mills at
state fair for best flour. Theaward was
lncompetition with nearly all of tbebig
mills of the state. Corvallis ought
to, and doubtless has, a fair fame
abroad for its mills and millers.
Few people realize1, perhaps, the

regularly kept by the ferryman of the
day's business and the facts are re

number of ferriages during August
was 5,350. , At the . present time a
small day's business is 175 ferriages.

MAKING FINAL COLLECTIONS
Of Taxes Sheriff Burnett is Again in
the Field for Cash.
Elsewhere is a notice that Sheriff
Burnett gives to those who have
not completed payment of their tax
es. About 200 persons in the coun
ty paid half their assessment last
spring and thereby secured the op
tion of paying the remaining half
on or before Monday, October 6th.
Only a limited time remains for the
remainder to be paid. Such as do
not pay, will be under necesstiy, as
the sheriff says in his notice, of
paying not only a io per cent pen
alty, but in addition 12 per cent
interest on the remaining half from
the-first Monday in April to the
time of payment. -
Of course, those who square up
the remaining half .by October 6th,
will have neither penalty nor in
terest to pay.
The aggregate of the unpaid bal
ance of taxes affected as above is
about $3000. The date for pay
ment withont cost expires two
weeks from next Monday. ...
GOT DRINKS MIXED -
His Oath and How He Took it Didn't
Have the Hang of Things.
He was making final proof on "a
homestead in the clerk's office. In
the process, it became necessary for
him to take an oath. He had nev
er done that sort of thing before,
and didn't have the hang of things.
He held up his right hand when
told to, and then stood dazed-like
while the clerk rattled perfunctor
ily through the oath. Finally the
official closed with the well known
words, '"So help me God," and
then paused for the reply... -
But the youth didn't reply. The
truth was, he didn't know just
what was wanted. With a per
turbed countenance, and his fing
ers working nervously at his panta
loons, he stood,' dumb as an oyster.
Suddenly, however, his face
brightened. He remembered the
words, 'Sohelp me God,'' and
feeling sure that he had the right"
answer, sung out boldly, Amen."
The Jyoung main hailed from
Western Benton. .
NOW IN SESSION
Taxpayers Visit the Court H&use
- Board of Equalization. " . .-'
The County Board of Equaliza
tion has been in session since Mon
day morning, in attendance . are
the county judge, clerk and asses
sor. The sessions are held in the
private office of the clerk, but the
door opening into the corridor
kept open for the convenience of
callers. .
A number of taxpayers have call
ed to look after their assessments,
The purpose of many was merely
to ascertain the amount- of their
valuations, and in most instances,
they went away satisfied. John
son Porter, however lodged a com
piaint witn tne Doard. J. he asses
sor's valuation on the Sorbin pro
perty is $2, 200. Recently Mr
Porter bought the property at
$2,375. He claimed that much of
the property in the county is as
sessed at about half its cash value,
and he thought' that there should
be a reduction in the valuation on
the property in question. The
matter was taken under advise
ment by the board.

A queer incident happened at the
ferry some time ago. There were
eight teams on the boat, and the
landing had just been reached. Two
of the wagons were heavily loaded
and were on the back end of - ths
ferry. The drivers were deeply- ab
sorbed in conversation when the
landing was reached, All the other
teams drove off, save the hinderraost
two, and the effect was that the boat
tilted considerably and both wagons
began to roll back. Fortunately,
the chains across the back of the boat
were strong and securely fastened, or
a different dcoount would have been
written. ; :
