BALLOON WENT UP.
.And Cme Down Brass Band and
Special Trains -The W. 0. W.
Corvallis is having its W. O. W.
cnmival. The show began Wednes
day afternoon, and is to end at n
o'clock this Saturday evening. The
chief feature is the Arnold show
which serve to attract multitudes of.
aeople. Ever since the arrival of
the latter the town has been full
of strange faces. .The rains ofi
Thursday served as a dampener on
the attendance during the day, but
in the evening the crowds in the
,jcarnival grounds were, far larger
than on the opening evening. It
is probable that, rain or shine, the j
attendance today will be by far the
greatest of all. It is to be hoped so
. for the sake of the Woodmen, who J
iave expended much time, labor
and trouble irr an effort " to;
moVi . tTi affair a success.!
The carnival opened Wed
nesday afternoon with a
parade that occupied several
blocks. It consisted of Woodmen
of the World, uniformed and other
wise, of the queen's carriage, the
Philomath and Bellfountain brass
bands and the movable features of
the Arnold shows. The route, was
north on Third south on Main, out
to Fourth and thence North and
west on Madison to the Carnival,
jgrounds on Sixth. There in a
mammoth tent, occurred the cere
mony of crowning the queen, . the
presentation to her of the keys and
hospitality of the city, all witnessed
by a tent full of people, after which
occurred the regular performance
of the Arnold shows.
A parade-programmed for J burs
day afternoon, in which Woodmen
and the cadet battalion were to take
part, did not take place on account
of the muddy condition of Main
street. The day brought a special
train from Dallas and Monmouth
drawn by the little motor locomo
tive used on the Independence and
.Monmouth railroad. It brought
about fifty people. In the early
evening another special arrived
from Albany, bringing alarge num
ber of people. The arrivals to
gether with townspeople and visit
ors from tb country filled the big
tent ; Thursday evening and the
shouts of vendors, murmur of con-.
. 1 1 . i i r i i .1
veTsauon, me piaymg oi uanus, luc
Turkish bagpipes and drum and
a thousand other noises made a
babel of sounds which carried out
with precision the carnival idea
During the evening occurred the
competitive drill by the Woodmen
teamsj won by the delegation from
Monmouth, over the Corvallis men
as a close second. The judges in
the contest were Captain Hardin,
commandant at OAC, and Captains
Beattie and Johnson of the cadet
Yesterday the attendance was the
largest of any Carnival day. The
weather was more favorable, and
many people were in from the
country. In the morning occurred
the balloon ascension, which was
very successful. The balloon with
Prof. Miller in the . basket, rose
swiftly from the Carnival grounds,
shortly after n o'clock. It rose
steadily on a slightly easterly dir
ection until it attained an elevation
of 3,ooo feet. At a point-, that
seemed almost directly over the
Whitehorn block on Main street,
the parachute was cut loose and
balloon deserted by the aeronaut.
The parachute quickly filled, and
the descent was easy, graceful and
successful. It moved in several
directions as it came down,'' and
seemed to be under the control of
the balloonist. It finally landed in
the street near Abbots barn, two or
three blocks north of the business
. portion of town. The event was
witnessed by vast crowds, who
formed a dense mass around the
carnival grounds, and occupied van
tage points on the roofs of build
ings in various parts of town,
The carnival comes to an end
this Saturday evening. The
day is expected to be by far the
greatest one of the carnival. :
At tba carnival grounds the Ar
nold sh'ws offer much to interest.
There is a huge Ferris wheel, a
-..merry-go-round, a main tent in
which there is a platform on which
acrobats, trapezists aiid wire rope
people do difficult stunts, besides a
long list of eideshows,each of which
contain an attraction. Among the
' latter are glass blowers," a band of
v darkeys who do plantation songs
and dancing stunts as tbey did be
fore the war, a half dozen Turks
who do things in the queer way
they are doDe in Turkey, a band of
Japanese acrobats who are as good
as - afivbodv ever saw. besides
other attractions to interest and
instruct. , ' '." '

WITH SULPHURIC ACID.
Burned His Hand. On the Same Day
Two of his Classmates Died Vio
Fred C. Stimpson an OAC . so
phomore was severely burned
while handling sulphuric acid in
the chemical laboratory Thursday
afternoon. In an intricate test ,for
tartaric acid, sulphuric acid was
boiled down ' to a sluggish Oily
thickness, when ;the upturned
evaporator emptied its boiling con
tents over the young man's hand.
Almost like sy run, - the acid clung'
to the skin which was , cooking as
rapidly as if it were in a fire. Un
able to remove the burning sub
stance, he rushed across the ; lab
oratory to the hydrant where re
lief was first, obtained. Sodium
bicarbonate and olive oil were
promptly , administered; and now
the young pharmacist carries a
burden in a sling on the side where
his own good right hand ought to
It may be stated incidentally,
that on the same afternoon Mr.
Stimpson learned a worse fate
which had just befallen two class
mates who graduated with him
from the Amity public schools

FOR SUMMER SCHOOL.
In Coryallis Prof. Tartar May Con
duct One Several Want it.
Prof. Tartar is considering the
proposition of conducting a sum
mer school at the public -school
building in Corvallis during the
present vacation. He has been re
quested to do so by a number ' of
patrons, who want pupils tutored
for removal of conditions received
in examinations during the past
school year, or for kindred rea
sons, One or two pupils want
drill in Algebra so they may be
able to enter college next year,
while still others who were out .of
school during a portion of a term
in the past year want opportunity
to bring up arrearages before; the
opening of school next fall."
Prof. Tartar will be at the public
school building during the school
election next Monday, and may be
seen at. any other time with ' refer
ence to terms. If enough pupils
apply, the proposed summer school
will open Monday." June 22 nd. The
school will be in session but the
half of each school day, a full day's
session for summer work not being
deemed advisable. '

Bay Rickard is - seriously ill at
his father's home .with catarrh of
the stomach. Three physicians
have been engaged in the case -during
the past week. ; The , patient
has never recovered completely
from a similar attack , with which
he suffered several weeks ago. Last
week he was about starting to Port
land for medical treatment, when
he was again , violently attacked
with his malady. He has since
been confined in bed. - His condi
tion was slightly improved yester
'; Rev. Humbert and family are to
sro to Eugene to reside. Rev. Hum-
berthas been placed in charge of
the financial arrangements of the
Divinity School at Eugene, and
Mrs. Humbert has been elected to
the chair of Christian Misrions in
the same institution. They are to
leave Corvallis for their new field
of labor about about August 1st.
No arrangements has yet been
made for a successor to Mr. and
Mrs. Humbert in the pastorate of
the Christian church in this city,
which they have most acceptably
filled for several years.
An agency for lending money on
city property has been established
in Corvallis. The interest rate is
under six per cent. The duration
of loans is from three to 10 years,
according to the wish of the bor
rower. If the borrower desires,
payment in full may be made at
the end of one year. The company
that does the lending is the Equi
able Saving and Loan Association,
of which Charles W. Ladd of Port
land is president. The local agent
is W. A. Wells, . The plan enables
persons with fixed incomes and a
small amount of ready money to
build and own homes.
The authorities are having trou
ble with the City and County
gravel ferry boat. The boat is not
locked to the bank, and it is the
habit of boys about town to make
use of it at pleasure. They take it
back and 'forth across the river, and
have a deal of sport out of the pas
time. The other afternoon when
gravel teams appeared on the west
bank and wanted to cross, the boat
was on ' the opposite side. The
small boat was also on the opposite
side, and the boys who had taken
both over were nowhere to be seen.
There was a wild waste of profanity
and much wear: and tear on the
patience before the team finally got
across. The authorities are pre
paring trespass notices for posting
and it is the purpose to prosecute
future offenders. -
A bottle of catsup flung by a
woman, a clenched fist, a bloody
nose and a subsequent arrest were
features in a miniature s'reet
tragedy Thursday afternoon. The.
bottle of catsup was a part of tneCity
Restaurant, and the clenched fist was
also an appurtenance of that estab
lishment. Oliver Felger had dined
in the hostelry and on account of
alleged uncivil remarks had invok
ed the ire of the, wife of the propri
etor. t Persons across the - street
suddenly saw Felger emerge from
the front door as the bottle of cat
sup, welided by Mrs. Lederle,
struck him in the back. -Felger
turned round and found himself face
to face with Mr. Lederle, A few
words passed, Lederlee's right shot
forward and landed on Felger's
nose. Felger fell under the weight
of theblow, and after picking him
self up, he left the place. He was
subsequently arrested and fined $5.
