By W.'A. Stamats.
In placing before the readers of
The Times a summary of the com
mercial and industrial progress of
Corvallis and many of its business
houses, we are proud indeed of the
record which we are priviledged to

do so. Every citizen of Corvallis
may congratulate himself that he
is a resident of one of the neatest,
healthiest . and most progressive
little cities in the state of Oregon
a town with a commercial and in
dustrial expansion, limited only
by the energy of our people in tk-
ing advantage of the opportunities
that he at our door.
Corvallia is the County seat of
Benton County and located at the
junction of the S. P. and C. & E.
railroads. : It is the distributing
point for a rich agricultural distri
ct and has had and is still enjoying
a steady growth and a solid devel
opment. It is the seat of the Ore
gon Agricultural College. It has"
two batiks, two live semi-weekly
newspapers, the Times and the
Gazette, two creameries, two planing
milis, a foundry and numerous
other industries. The streets ' are
broad and well kept and bordered
with ribbons of green and embow
ered with ehapely trees- Cozy cot
tages and - handsome homes are
found in the resident district which
form the border " of substantial
brick business blocks, giving the
city the general appearance of so
lidity. and commercial activity
Civic and fraternal societies - are
well represented while the many
church organizations are in a
flourishing condition. The public
school system is of the best and
the people take a pardonable pride
in their temples of wisdom.
- Nature has smiled upon her lo
cation to make her famous for
beauty and health. Its manufact

desirable character the Willamette

come, and the summit of her pros
perity has Seen far from reached,
Naught but words of confidei.ce
and enthusiasm are heard on every
hand and here the oroaker and the
pessimist find no bearing.
Standing on, the solid rock of
past achievements, and with every
indication of still . more wonderful
development, Corvallis with just
pride in herself and faith in her
destiny, passes onward to gather
the fruits of her industry and enter
prise. Willamette Valley Banking Co.
