college Monday with eeveral hundred

ing, and so far 13 oranges have ma
tured. Tbe specimen in the window

The action of the council a few

A Flood of New Students They Come
- From all Quarters The College.
Organization of classes at the col
lege is complete now, and recita
tions begin this morning.; Though
more than 200 new students
'are on hand,'; they have already
learned the routine, and arguable to
find their plaees "'. with precision.
For 48 hours the 30 members of
the faculty have had their hands
full in passing upon the credentials
of new applicants, in assigning
them desired places -m the ' various
coursesjand in bringing orderout of
chaos. Four -"hundred young
people, threading their way through
the labyrinths of preliminary ' or
ganization makes a buzz and bustle
next to terrific. The . spectacle,
when all are in motion, seeking
this professor's room or another's,
getting indorsements of matricula
tion cards, entering their names on
the rolls iu the registrar's office,
and performing , the other stunts
necessary to - admission is most ' in
teresting to an observer. It fills
the corridors, the offices and tbe
stairways of ' , the ' ; administration
building to the utmost, and tbe ov
erflow spreads 'o Meckanioal Hall
and and Agricultural -Hall. The
movement, during the opening
hours is "incessant as the : bustle of
bees. The storm centers in the
registrar's office where enrollment
takes place, and in the president's
office where, doubtful . questions
relative to admission are passed
upon. The clerk's office, too, is al
most equally overrun.' for that is
the ante room to the " executive
throne, and is the place where the
financial and other matters are
disposed of. From these places,
the streams of young folks radiate
to the various departments, form
ing an intricate system of which
those who have never seen it, can
form but little conception.
The college buildings are full of
new faces. A little Eastern Ore
gon neighborhood that sent ' three
new students last year, returned
its little quota this time with six ad
ditional applicants "for admission.
Lewisville. Polk county, did a
similar stunt, in sending new people

BUT ONE HAND.'
Lost the Other in an Accident Monday
. . lucuarii aeon. . . j
Richard Scott, son-in-law of-Man-1
iy vmrier ana a tnruiy young tar
mer of Southern Benton, has . but
one hand now. To the great grief
of his friends, Mr.': Scott lost the
other in an accident Monday aiter
nofj.ri. vThe injury was such, that
surgeons had to amputate the mem
ber at the spot .where the hand
joiri the wrist. It is the left hand
that -is gone. - - , '
TJie accident happened while Mr.
Sco?t was working-with a traction
engine that was to be used : as the
motive power in chopping grain,
andjalso in sawing winter's wood.
Byome means the hand came in
contact with a cog wheel of the en
ginwhile the latter was in motion.
A laceration resulted that ground
thengers except the thumb,-- and
themidd!e.'porti-n of the hand al
mos.into a pulp The front ''por
ti6rrf the thumb alone was spared,
though the - back of that member
was so torn that it could not be
saved. The ' surgeons were Drs.
Lee:and Farra, and for a time they
eotftdered the .possibility of saving
the thumb, but: after determiiiing
tha$. the effort would be both useless
as well as dangerous, they removed
the hand at the joint of the wrist.
Ne-wS of the accident was received
with much regret in Corvallfs, where
Mr Scott has many friends.

Saturday afternoon EH King
treated the Times force to a liberal
feed of fine peaches. They were of
the variety known as the Alberta
Ireestone, and in sizo and flavor sur
pass any fruit of tbe kind heretofore
exhibited in Corvallls without excep
tion. Unfortunately Mr. King has
but one tree and that is just no.w be
ginning to bear well. Several years
ago Sol King procured three trees of
this variety from the state of New
York, One he planted in his orchard,
one on the north side of his farm res
idence and the third he planted on
the south side. The latter is the only
one which did any good, Large
quantities of such peaches grown here
would add greatly to the fame of the
Willamette valley as a fruit produc
ing country. r,

In the department, of German
and history, from which Miss
Chamberlin has a year's leave' of
absence, Prof. Schmitt is the sup
ply. He is highly educated, and is
a man of fine ability and extensive
experience. W. O Trine, who is
director, vice J. B. Patterson, re
signed, is to be in the gymnasium
on the 1st of October, and all the
students look torward to his com
ing with pleasant anticipation.

college than ever this year.' If the
final enrollment falls - below 600,
those in fullest touch with the - sit
uation will be disappointed.
It has long been the custom of
graduating classes of large insti
tutions to leave something as a
