able information, the price is not
yet fixed, and there is only con
jecture as to what it will be. Dealers
abroad are apparently making no
offers. Local buyers have sought
everywhere for dealers who would
take the product in quantities and
at desirable figures, but without
avail. Some regard tbe situation as
discouraging, andothersclaim that
there are large offerings of the bark
there will naturally be a price. A
few small lots have, sold in town at
five cents per pound. In all, the
sales so far, will, hardly aggregate

David La vine of Portland, , whose

brief words of eulogy, in which the
simple character, , and honorable
work of the deceased were truth,
lully set forth. The sermon liken
ed the passing of the ' deceased to
the arrival ot a heavily freighted
ship in port after the storniy pas

not a "passing away," that the
present was an occasion, not for
mourning, but for thanksgiving.

Corvallis Bestow Hospitality City
Council Takes Preliminary Action.
Steps are afoot ' For Corvallis to
extend a fitting welcome to the
Grangers ot Oregon when ? they
meet in this city for a four days
session the latter part of the month,
The city council has moved in the
matter with a purpose of - inducing
business men and others to follow
in a general manifestation of hos
pitality, such as befits the unusual
occasion. . A committee of arrange
ments has been appointed in be
half of the city, with full power to
act, and this committee is . charged
with the duty of enlisting business
men for a suitable decoration ot
business bouses, lor a general - dis
position on the part of local citi
zens to make the visitors feel that
they are guests of - the town, and
for such other duties on behalf of
the city as may tend to show the
visitors that Corvallis is glad to
have them hold their annual ses
sion within her limits. The real
ization that in the State Grange the
Agricultural College has one of her
best friends, and that the members
01 the grange may be made to
know that Corvallis citizens are
hearty supporters of the college
and.of the interests of the grange,
is the purpose behind the plan.
The action of the council was
taken in response to a communi
cation from Corvallis Grange, re
questing that some official action
be taken by the' council, recogniz
ing the approaching . grange ses
sion, and evincing a nospitaoie
purpose with reference thereto.
The action is commendable, be
cause representatives from the 100.
gran'ges in the state will be in at
tendance, and because the member
ship of these granges through the
state is the recruiting 1 grounds
from which a large section ; of the
students at the college is drawn.
The session, which begins on the
24th and continues four days, af
fords opportunity for- Corvallisites
to do their college and their town
great and lasting good. r
If the action of the council be
heartily endorsed by citizens and
business men, and the plan be car
ried out as proposed, no mistake
will be made. The' impression
made upon the visitors will , be
bread cast upon the waters which
will return after many days.
