fOne Building on its Second Journey
Two Others Exchange Locations.
Charles Blakeslee is moving
J. &. Smith's two-story building
formerly known as the Thompson
tenement house. It is to be placed
' on the north portion of Mr, Smith's
three lots so that a larger space will
intervene between his residence and
the house to be relocated. This is
the second move for this building,
navinar many years ago been taken
rfrom the corner where Ray's brick !
Wow stands, corner Second and
Monroe streets. It was then own
ed by R. M. Thompson, and by
him and others .successively oc
cupied as a grocery store.
Peter Rittner of Albany, has the
contract for and is engaged in mov-
' ine two houses in Corvallis, one of
which is the small residence owned
"by . Mrs. Caroline Hayes on the
ncrthwest corner of Jefferson .and
Sixth'streets. The other is Mrs.
Ann Smith's residence on the lots
j ust south of the first named house.
The buildings are to exchange lo
cations. The larger residence will
occupy lots 7 and 8 in the block,
and the smaller -on lots 9 and 10,
adjoining. It is understood that
the change is made for the con
venience and benefit of Mr. and
.Mrs. Johnny Hayes, both of whose
"parents are separate owners of the
Tespective pieces of property, and
that changes in titles will shortly
BEGIN BINDING MONDAY.
HxMany Farmers Will Vetch Thresh
ing Expected Within a Week.
Monday morning, many a bind
. in Benton will be early a-field.
On some farms a day or two of
binding has been done this week.
The oats crop is all ready for cut
ting, and that is what the binders
will begin on. The crop is said
to be the best in years, as is also
the case with wheat. Vetch, : of
which much will be cut for seed, is
likewise very fine. Threshing of
the latter crop is expected to begin
within a week or- ten days., it is
cut mostlv with the mower, and
then put into shocks., from , which
it is threshed. Many of the farm
ers in the southern portion of the
county are . . growing it. On the
John Whi taker farm there is a hun
dred acres, on the J, N. McFadden
2arm. more than. that, and smaller
Jields on many other places. If the
yield turns out to be as good as con
ditions seem to promise, Benton
will harvest this season the best
;"SKcrop it has gathered in years.

EIGHTY THOUSAND NEXT YEAR.
Twenty Thousand to be Spent in Bet
' terments-0 AC Board Meeting.
: The OAC board of regents did
their annual stunt Wednesday. They
advanced a few salaries gently.heard
statistical reports of money received
and spent, employd anew instructor
or two, established a department of
vocal music, and effected a lew
other minor changes of existing ar
rangements. Governor Chamber
lain, Secretary Dunbar and Super
intendent Ackerman were at the
meeting, and so was Master of the
State Grange Leedy. Other regents
from abroad were President Wea
therford, J. M. Church J. D. Daly
Benton Killin and W. P, Keady.
The establishment of the depart
ment of vocal music was in re
sponse to a wide demand ' for such
instruction. An able instructor is
to be secured. A fee is to be char
ged, as is the case in the depart
ment of instrumental music, oat of
which it is hoped the arrangements
may be self supporting. An ar
dent advocate of the measure was
Master of theState Grange Leedy,
who thought such a department an
essential fixture at OAC." The em
ployment of a teacher - is in the
hands of President Gatcb. '
Miss Chamberlin was granted
leave of absence for a year. Her
place is to be supplied during the
interim by Prof A. C, Schmitt of
Albany. Prof Schmitt is a gradu

campus and greenhouse, and in ad
dition is charged with the' care of
the college orchard, save such trees
as the station entomologist or. hor
ticulturist tnay require for purposes
of experimentation. . .
The building committee was
given power to act in the purchase
of additional grounds for drill and
athletic purposes, for securing an
additional water supply, for equip,
ment of Agricultural Hall, and for
the consolidation ot the power and
heating plants. By theS latter ar
rangement $1,000 per year in fuel
and help is expected t6 be saved.
John Fulton was made associate
professor of minerolagy and ; assay
ing, and placed .in " charge of the
mining department. The latter to
occupy quarters in the brick build
ing to be vacated by the power plant
when the latter is combined with
the heating plant, and $600 was ap
propriated for the purchase of
equipment. V- ?

professor of Agriculture and dairy
ing, and the degree of Master
of Science was conferred on Prof.
Pernot, bacteriologist of the station.
. Ruthyn Turney was made leader
and instructor of the college cornet
band at a salary of $120 per year.

the station be sent to all graduates
of the institution, and the board or
dered all alumni put on the mail
ing lists. '. -

Calistoga, - California, Miss Ida
Wright, a sister, and Mrs. Wright,
the wife of the - deceased. They
arrived with the body on the C. &
E. train from Albany. A .hearse
ana carriages were in waiting at the
station, and the pairty proceeded at
once to the cemetery, where the
interment occurred with a , simple
ceremony. ( . . y
' Death occurred at San Francisco,
last Sunday, after an illness of but
a few days. The malady was ap
pendicitis, which finally developed
into peritonitis. The disease first
appeared in violent form on Thurs
day of last week, at Calistoga. The
necessity of a surgical, operation
appeared, and the t patient was at
once taken to San Francisco, where
Friday afternoon, in Lane hospital
an operation was performed, three
eminent physicians taking part in
the work. ,
The sufferer survived the opera
tion, for a time, but later the symp
toms became more and more alarm
ing, and Sunday the end came. At
the bedside were Miss Abbie
-Wright, a sister, the wife .and Jo
seph Wright r The body was tak
en at once to Calistoga, where the
funeral was held, after which the
remains were brought to Corvallis
for burial in the family lot.
Wilson Wright was born in Cor
valiis, 35 years ago. He was edu
cated here, and in 1882 went to
Palouse City, where he was en
gaged in business for a number of
years- There in 1895 he married
Miss Jennie Williamson, by whom
he is survived. Sometime ago,
Mr. Wright went to California,
where he has for the past three
years held an important mining po
sition, out of which he has prosper
ed. At the time of his death, he
was engaged in promoting a min
ing deal that was practically com
pleted, and out of which a profit of
$io,obo was expected to be real
ized. The deal was to have closed
the coming week.
One by Jury and one by Judge Giving
Liquor to Minors.
Two trials for giving liquor to
minors have taken place in the
police court within the - past few
days. The case of Mrs. Wheeler
was heard Wednesday afternoon.
It was without a jury. The testi
mony was to the effect that various
minors under age had been given
beer at her home by Mrs. Wheeler.

with the same offence was heard
Thursday morning. It was a jury

Crees, Bruce Burnett, John Bier,
Mr. Horton, J. W. Crawford -' and
Clyde Phillips. The testimony
was to the effect that at the Whee
ler house Mrs. Smith had brought
iff beer and given it to boys and
girls of 16 and upwards. - The jury
brought in a verdict of guilt v, and
the defendant was sentenced to pay
a fine $50.-, - The case has been ap
pealed to the circuit court.

The news came to ; town . yester
day morning that the cries of a
panther had been heard in the
woods in the vicinity - of the Stahl
busch Island. For two hours dur
ing the morning yesterday, the
air in the. vicinity resounded .with
unearthly calls and yells, ; generally
described as resembting a panther
in deep trouble: " Subsequent in
vestigation showed that the noise
was made by Assessor Bush, Who
tried to find his way to the island
for the purpose of assessing the
Stahlbusch boys. He could neither
find the boat along- the bank nor
his way in the woods. , and hence
the panther yells. He returned to

th Cmar'a People ApprMUU
The official report of the Russian
foreign trade for the first four months
of 1902 shows the American importa
tions to be virtually the same as in
1900, apparently indicating- that Rus
sian buyers have become fully con
vinced it is better to buy American
machinery in spite of the discriminat
ing1 ,duty against it. The comparative
figures for 1900s 1901 and 1902 are re
spectively $8,980,000, $7,158,000, and $8,
913,500. . In the meantime German and
British imports have fallen, their fig
ures being $34,061,500, $32,216,500, and
$30,297,000, and $15,064,000 $14,317,000
and $10,394,000. The whole import has
continued falling, so that the share"
of America is relatively larger than in
1900. The exportations continue to in
crease. - Hpalery In the Air. '
