fell in Corvallis from September 1st
to. May 1st. The figures are 51 54
inches and are the greatest for the
period during the history of the
weather bureau at the college. The
next highest was in 1896-7 when
the rainfall was 45.47 inches. The
figures for the same period last
year were 38.25. The total rain
fall for the month of April was

a cottage already enclosed for Geo.
W. Fuller, is at work on one for
Elva Minor and is shortly to begin
another for Elvin Witham. The
Fuller cottage contains five rooms,
and is to cost about $700. The
Minor house is a seven-room cottage
and is located on the W. A. Wells
block in the northern part of Job's
addition. It is to cost about $800.
The Witham house is to be built on
the Witham farm and will contain
eight rooms, and will be one of the
best dwellings in that vicinity. Its
cost will be about $1,200. The
lower prices of lumber, : and the
certainty that the figure will be
higher in the future has given con
siderable impetus to building operations.
MONUMENT FOR HIS GRAVE.
After a long and useful life ol
more than four score years, M.
Jacobs, ex mayor of Corvallis, and
during his active years, a prominent
merchant and influential citizen,
died at the family home in this
city Thursday evening. His ill
ness began tour weeks ago, after a
day of unusual exertion He was
taken ill with bladder trouble in
the evening, and was no better for
several days. After that, he was
better for a day or two, and on one
occasion was up and about the
house- His illness, however be
came more violent, and for the past
two or three weeks, he has linger
ed along until the end. which came
suddenly and quite unexpectedly,
at seven o'clock Thursday evening.
The funeral is to occur from the
family residence at 11:30 o'clock
tomorrow. The service will be
conducted by Dr. David Lavine of
Portland, and will be under the
auspices of Barnum lodge, I. O. O.
F. .After tae luneral service, the
remains will be taken via the West
side train to Portland, where the
interment will be made in the Jew
ish cemetery Monday morning.
The members of Barnum and Al
pha Rebekah lodges are requested
to meet in Odd bellows hall at 8
o'clock this, Saturday evening to
make arrangements for the funeral.
'Th; deceased was 82 vears of
age. He was a native of Russia,
but came to the United States at an
early age. He settled in Corvallis
in 1858, and engaged at once in the
mercantile business, being senior
member of the well known firm of
Jacobs & Neugass, which for a
long time was one of the most
prominent mercantile firms : in the
Willamette Valley, doing a wide
and profitable trade. At the same
time. Mr. Jacobs, with a mental
horzon wider Jtb an that of most men,
took a high place in the esteem
and confidence of the people and
was a citizen of much influence.
About the year 1890. Mr. Jacobs
retired from active business, and
with the advance of years, , led
quiet ute. He served a term as
mayor of Coryallis, and was pres
ident of the college building" as
sociation which secured the means
aud built the administration build
ing at the Agricultural college, the
the latter of which was a condition
upon which the college was perma
nently located at Corvallis.
He was a man just in all things,
amiable with all people, and a wide
circle of friends mourn with his
family in his passing.

to- his lellow citizens, -Benton coun
ty takes the initiative for placing a
monument at the grave of the late
James Dunn, and proposes that all
expenses incident to his last sick
ness and death, be paid irom public
funds. The county court Thurs
day made an order offering to ? pay
lor one-half of a $ 100 monument
and an equal J proportion of the
funeral expenses, provided the city
of Corvallis will pay the remainder.
The cost ot medical attendance and
burial lees, includes an ; undertak
ers bill of about $83, the fee of the
surgeons for the operation and sub
sequent attendance, $100, s and
other minor bills, that aggregate,
$214.50.' The monument at a pro
posed cost of $100, raises the ex
pense to $314 50. It is considered
certain that the council will respond
with equal promptness to the de
mand of a large section of the citi
zens, woo urge it, ; ana at the
first meeting of the council make
an appropriation covering the offer
of the county. Several council-
men, who have been interviewed
on the subject, have declared them
selves favorable to the plan, and it
is expected that action will be tak-1
en to complete the plan when the
councilmen come together n a
regular meeting Monday night.
Ever since the appearance in the
Times of a portion of a sermon in
which Rev. Carrick suggested that
the community should erect a mon
ument over the grave of Mr. Dunn
the subject has been freely discuss
ed on the streets, and so far as
heard without the expression of a
single unfavorable opinion. In fact,
sentiment seems unanimous for
the proposed action as a fitting
recognition of Mr. Dunn's last
service to the community in which
he wes so long a citizen.
The action of the court was tak
en after a visit from a delegation of
citizens, headed by R. H. Huston.
Representations were made of the
well remembered facts in which Mr
Dunn lost his life, and the argu
ment made that the county owed
it as a public duty to see that the
orphan children, after the sacrifice
of "their father, be not called upon
to pay the expenses that a defense
of the peace 01 the community entailed.-
Each member of the court
promptly declared himself favorable
to the plan, and by unanimous vole
the order was made as above stated

uses. Although she can command
the highest salary of any lady violin
player on the stage, and all the big
musical centers, New York, Boston,

fact everywhere she has played the
press and public have been unani

Salt Lake City when the big Mor
mon convention was on, she played
in the famous tabernacle, which
held 13,000 people, and time after
time she had to respond to the tu
multous applause of the delighted
throng. She can take you back to
your childhood by' her beautiful
rendering of simple old time airs,
or she can charm the heart of mu
sical enthusiasts by her skilful play
ing of classical pieces. She is the
happy possessor of many beautiful
gowns and diamonds, but her chief
treasure is her famous violin, which
cost over 52,500. She will play at
the Opera house on May 1 1 and if
you wish to hear the violin played
