Contractors and Mechanics - Bnsy-
More Building in Progress than -n-f
Fewjresidents of Corvallis, unless
they are addicted to the habit . of
strolling over town regularly, can
form anjadequate idea of. the amount
of building that is in progress at the
present time. Early this spring it
was stated by contractors that the
coming season was to be a record
breaker, and the prediction has
proven a true one. Looking in any
direction one pleases, the eye notes
from one to half a dozen new' build
ings, some under construction others
just begun, and many just comple
ted. In the western part of town, es
peciafjy there is a boom in the build
ing lifte. - A resident the other day
in counting up the new dwellings
that have been erected in the west
ern part of town during the past
three years, not idclnding the Col
lege hill residents, stated that from
25 to 30 houses had been built, and
there are a number now in course
of construction. In this connection
it may be stated that houses to rent
are in great demand at present, and
one man who is now building a
cottage in Job's Addition hasjeased
the same for a period of four years,
at $7 per month. The condition is
a gratifying one to Corvallis people
as carpenters, mason ,s painters and
all other mechanics are busy, and
the defination of industry is progress.
AT THE COLLEGE,
Norris & Rowe's will be in Corvallis
The festive tented season is once
more upon us and our hearts beat
in unison with bur happy young
sters in the glad anticipation ot
again witnessing the thrilling acts
of trained athletes; the antics of the
amusing clowns, the marvelous in
telligence of the highly trained
animals ana tne learsome, awe
some," yet fascinated wonder which
thrills our hearts when we gaze
upon the wild beasts confined in the
menagerie. It is always an event
when the ever welcome Norris &
Rowe's big shows give exhibitions
in this city and this season more
than ever before will the excite
ment run higher for the really
splendid show they brought" us
last season, these clever young
managers have added a huge cir
cus world in itself. It contains
gymnasts, acrobats, tumblers,
equilibrists, clowns and athletes
whose' marvelous flights through
the air will prove spectacularly
thrilling to audiences.
1 he greater show is just twice as
large as it ever was before. It
will be given in two rings and
upon an elevated stage. A multi
tude of new features never before
presented in this country will be
shown. It will contain a. men
agerie of wild an native beasts
performing elephants, - camels,
liODS, tigers, tapirs, llamas, buffa
loes, kangaroos, ostriches, elk, deer
ponies, goats and monkeys, but
most wonderful of all will be the
thrilling acts performed high up in
mid air by the athletes. ,
Managers Norris & - Rowe have
secured this season to make good
their claim that they have a big
circus, arid though there has been
an enormous outlay of capital in
order to secure these acts and nov
elties, no other than the old es
tablished scale of prices will pre
vail. The mammoth new tents
will therefore surely hold immense
audiences and in this way will re
pay the owners for their generous
outlay. The new big shows will
give two performances here next
