A proposition to purchase a
chemical engine tor Corvallis
aroused a debate in the council
Monday night. A special com
mittee recommended that a 55-gal-lo
chemical, to cost frfeo, be pur
chased. The members divided on
the proposition, one side urging
that the city could not afford the
expense and that such an engine
in Corvallis would be of doubtful
utility, and the friends of the en
gine arguing (for its purchase on the
ground of its extreme efficiency in
the early stages of fires. On the
vote four members went on record
against the purchase, and three
A novel method is invoked iy
an Easterner who was in town last
week for determining the desirabil
ity of places he visits in search for
location. He visits the cemeteries
at each town or city, and by the
number of -graves there proceeds to
figure out mathematically the
healthf ulness of the location. He !
has been on the road now for sev
eral weeks, and at each place where
conditions seem inviting, he made
a pilgrimage to the cities of the dead.
His announcement, made on the
street after a view of the Corvallis
cemeteries, was that this town seems
to be about the healthiest place he
has struck. He says that all the
towns out westl are healthier than
similar places in the East.
A sea of mud between the two
depots, a horseless and shaftless
buggy in the midst of the sea. and
two forlorn and helplessjladies in the
buggy, that was a scene in town
Monday j The horse had tried to
pull the buggy out of the mud hole,
but the fastenings had parted and
he had flitted. A man came along
and, ahold of the remaining piece
of shaft, tried to pull the buggy to
a place where the ladies could alight
without danger of drowning in the
mire.- But the piece broke, and
there the buggy stood, and there
the ladies melancholy andjforlorn,
sat. How relief finally came is npt
known, but it came. The buggy is
now in the shop, and the ladies will
not go to sea again until the flow
ers bloom and the swallows twitter
in the sunshine.
Since Sunday, Dr. Cathey has
been a sufferer with blood poison
ing. From the first, the attack was
violent, and for a time some alarm
was felt. Hejwas, however, much
better yesterday morning. The
trouble was contracted while Dr.
Cathey performed au operation on
young Zumwalt, who recently had
scarlet fever. The operation was
for removal of an abscess, and pois
onous matter is supposed to have
found lodgment in a small abrasion
on the doctor's finger. .There were
two such abrasions and to one of
them in particular, antiseptics were
applied as usual. Less attention
was paid to the other, and it was in
this one that the trouble appeared.
The fingers, hand and arm as far as
the elbow are involved, and for a
time were badly swollen. The doc
is still confined at his . home and
Drs. Pernot and Farra are in charge
of the case. '

To Dallas College Team Concluding
Game of Basket Ball.
The OAC team lost- to Dallas
College men in a game of basket
ball in the Armorv Friday night,
by a score of 17 to 15. A few
minutes before tbe end of the last
half, the score stood tied at 14 for
each side, but a field goal thrown
at an opportune moment by Dallas,
won the game tor the visitors.
Interest ran very high from the
beginning to the end of the contest.
Six hundred to 700 people were on
lookers, 85 partisans from Dallas
being present to cheer for the vis
iting players. The Agrics led from
the beginning, and with two bask
ets and three points scored on fouls,
had a record of seven points to
their credit when the first half end
ed. The Dallas men had four, all
secured on fouls.
At the opening of the second
half, the visitors secured three bask
ets in rapid succession,, lifting their
score to 10. Fouls were called rap
idly by the referee for Dallas and-1
by the umpire for the Agrics, but
the former were unable to make
baskets on them. Swan threw two
in succession, raising the OAC
score to nine, when Dallas raised
its score to 12 with another field
goal. Rinehart lifted OAC to 11
with a goal from the field, and
Dallas went to 14 on a similar play.
Swan got a basket on a foul and
Steiwer tied the score at 14 with a
goal from the field. The play was
swift and furious, and the crowd in
the gallery was flushed and eager
with. excitement. Dallas finally
got another field goal, making the
visitor's score 16, and then a foul
for each side made the final record
read 15 for OAC, and 17 for Dal
las. This game is the last of the
In the interest of good, sport, a

Rural Phone System Farmers -Active
' Meeting Held The Plan.
The rural telephone movement
has taken deep root in Corvallis.
Twenty five farmers from th ad
jacent country were enthusiastic
participants in a meeting in tbe
county court room ' Monday after
noon. The spirit of the meeting
was belligerently and enthusiastic
ally for rural phones, to be built,
owned and maintained by farmers
and "business men. It looks very
much just now as if something is
certain to result . from the move
ment. ' ... . . -
The meeting was. arranged
by the committee appointed
wee by the Citizaas Leagu
which tbe rural telephone m
was referred. The comnrftt

farmers present were, George Lin

ing to make arrangements tor con
nections for it in this city.
In addition to those present, the
meeting heard reports from other
portions of Benton. J. H. Edwards
and Dr. Bennett from the soutn
end of the county are. interested in
a movement tor connections with
Corvallis from that section. The
committee also reported to the
meeting that there is desire tor a
line from Kings Valley via Philo
math into Corvallis, and that agi
tation is going on m the territory
At the meeting, the whole field
was canvassed, , ana preliminary
plans were undertaken to place the
matter on a business basis. A
joint stock company involving all
the interests that are to combine
is proposed. The general idea now
is to give people, both jn and out
of Corvallis, opportunity to buy
their own phones and build, equip
and maintain their own lines, con
ducting the business on a mutual
basis, perhaps through tbe medium
of an incorporated company, giv
ing a profit to nobody and involving
no expense save foroperatives for a
central office and for line repair and
maintainance. It is a further well
developed, idea to put the stock at
actual estimated expense to those
who go in at first, but to charge a
larger sum to those who come in af
terward If this line is followed,
it will be to the interest of all to
become initial subscribers to the
