Maurice and Stewart Greecberg
grandsons ot Mr. and Mre. M. Jacobs,
are here on a visit in company with
their parents who reside in San Fran
cisco, Since coming to Corvailis the
boys have become all swelled up
. not from any sense of pride, however
They wanted to see a little, country
life and persuaded Bob Johnson to
take them to bi3 prune orchard.
While down there the boys climbed
over the fence at an unfrequented
place, and disturbed a hornet's nest.
Well, in this fact, there is abundant
material for the imagination to work
upou. Almost anybody, except the
boys, can work up a good smila from
the situation. That's how the ' visit
ors came to be swelled up. .

That was the Price of Chlttim Bark
Tuesday Noon. . ,
The price of chittim bark is
booming.. The past few days has
been a strenuous time for both buy
ers and sellers and the end is i not
yet. There is much maneuvering
and sparring for advantage among
all parties interested, and it is diffi
cult to state the exact situation.
Bark was selling at 4 and 4 4 cents
a week ago and the price gradual
ly came up to 5 and 6 cents. The
latter was regarded as a high price
for the product and much of it was
disposed of at that figure. ; But the
price continued to go up under the
influence of competition until 8 and
8 cents was offered. At the lat
ter figure a large quantity of bark
was sold in Corvailis." Then Syi
was said to be the price in Corvai
lis, but it wat rumored that? a bet
ter figure was offered by buyers in
Alsea and Toledo, and xnly half a
dozen sacks, so far as known to the
Times, was' bought at that ; price.
Soon after' noon yesterday it 'was
announced that W. W. Taylor had
sold a load for 9 cents per pound
Still some sellers think the price
may go higher, but on the other
hand, what if it tumbles?
A s'eek-looking stranger stoe
over into the A lsea country the last
of the week and bought up a large
quantity of chittim at 6 cents. Just
how much of it will finally be de
livered to him remains to be seen.
The advance is a strong induce
ment to crawfish. ? " .
About half the crop has been
disposed of.
Farmers on the ; Coast Profiting ; by
Heavy Oriental Shipping. - ; .
The price of wheat in Corvailis
has reached rather an encouraging
point. During the past two days
farmers have, been able to realize
75 cen ts per bushel and many grow
ers are allowing their crops to go at
that price, ireight conditions on
this coast last year and more par
ticularly this season a; e favoring the
wheat grower more than for many
years past, due mainlv to iieavy'
importations from the Orient and
the consequent necessity, of out
ward cargoes. The price of wheat
varies somewhat in different parts
of the valley, but the farmer - here
is now realizing as. much for his
grain as the grower . who markets
his wheat in New York or Chicago.
The market of Portland, San Fran
cisco and New York are so nearly
together that they may be said to be
practically thes same, there being
more or less variation in the price
for spot wheat and' that for future
.Yesterday valley wheat, in Port
land was quoted at 80 cents per
bushel. As it costs 10 to 12 cents
per bushel to transport the wheat
to that point the market price here
should be 68 to 70 cents. Owing,
however, to ; competition among
buyers the price here would seem
to be 5 to 7 cents above the market
value '

Mr. and Mrs. M. Jacobs . Celebrated
- .-' Their Golden Wedding. . !
, On the 23rd of August 185 j, Mr.
and Mrs. M. Jacobs were united in
the holy bonds of wedlock in - New
York city. A half century has
passed since then and their fiftieth an
niversay was appropriately celebra
ted ,at their home in this city last
Sunday. - There was no publib
demonstraiton; but the immediate
family and hear relatives gathered
around the bid familiar ; home to
commemorate the passing' of 1 the
fiftieth mile stone . of their- happy
wedded life. It was a. pleasant
event and an occasion for much re
joicing and the hymeniil knot J was
retied with golden strings. M r. and
Mrs. Jacobs have lived in Corvailis
for over forty years and their friends
are measured by the large circle of
ther acquaintance, who "join the
Times in extending hearty congrat
ulations and wishing them many
more years of health and happine-s.
Congratulatory telegrams were re
ceived from all quarters and the
floral offerings in cut flowers and
potted plants? were profuse and
beautiful. There were also many
appropriate gifts in gold, and many
other valuable presents' from - rela
tives and friends in token of their
good wishes and hearty ' congratu
lations. - ' r
. This another important event in
tbeir lives has passed. The vows
that bound them on the shores of
the A tlantic have been kept sacred
ior fifty years, and while life's sun
is still high in the heavens, yet it
seems suggestive that in tbeir de
clining days, they' celebrate this
important event on the very brink
of the Pacific, ' v
