FOR BENTON EXHIBIT.
At Three Fairs Everybody is Asked
to Contribute Sample products.
Editor Corvaixis Times,
Dear Sir: There is more than
usual importance in making a dis
play of the resources of Benton
county this year. The exhibit will
go to the State Fair, then to the
National Grange at Portland, and
then to the Lewis & Clark. .
We need the help of everyone be
cause, while plenty can be found in
the county, it may not be as' easy
to locate it as usual "and we must
have an extra show. Other coun
ties are now reaping rewards that
we might have had and we cannot
afford to miss this chance. This, is
a case where one helps himself as
he helps the county. It is to the
advantage of everyone who has any
thing to sell to let as many as pos
sible know the fact. We shall
make that exhibit advertise the
person as well as the county.
H. L. Fhench.
A COMMENCEMENT FEATURE,
Recital Monday Evening of Elocution
ary and Musical Departments,
Coilege chapel was filled to the
utmost Monday evening by those
who were interested in the enter
tainment given jointly by the stud
ents of the elocutionary and vocal
music departments. He who was
not pleased with some particular
feature of the program or with the
entertainment in its entirety, would
be hard to satisfy.
The Ladies Chorus gave the op
ening and closing numbers and ful
ly sustained the reputation they
have earned during the past season.
The pantomime, 'The Holy City!
was given by Miss St. Germain,
the words being sung by Miss Ed
na Allen. W hile posing the effect !
was heightened by colored lights
thrown about Miss St. Germain by j
means of a stereopticou. Later
Miss St. Germain appeared in a
recitation, "The Wooing of Bere-j
nice" by Wilson Barrett, and de
served the applause she received.
Miss Hettie Lilly sang Schubert's
"Serenade," trying as it is, and ac
quitted herself creditably, as did
J. G. Kilpack in "Blow thou Win
The recitation, (a) "A Roman
Valentine," and (b) "Blow, thou
Winter Wind," by Miss Alice
Wicklund, and "How the La Rue
Stakes Were Lost," by Mrs. R. R.
Selleck, were really splendid and
the audience proved their pleasure
by warminar up their .palms. A
very pleasing number was "The
Monk's Magnificat," by Miss Lena
Tartar. This was something ot a
duo-recitation and song combined,
aud an organ was used for an ac
companiment. In "The ErlKing,"
that famous song of Schubert, Mrs.
E. F. Pernot appeared to advantage
and was given a most hearty round
"A Dream of Ancient Rome,"
given by Miss Nellie Pate, and J.
G. Kilpack, C. C. Cate, Guy Moore
and Meigs Bartmess seemed to be a
favorite with many.
Those who took part are pupils
of Miss Helen V. Crawford and
Mrs. Florence McDowell Green,
and these ladies are to be congrat
ulated on the success of the evening.

Happy Predictions for the Passing Cen
tury Sermon and Song. .
A new age of Christianity is to
sweep over the world. Christ is to
be made pre-eminent in all the af
fairs of men and nations, and uni
versal brotherhood is to possess
mankind. The greed for gold and
the machinations by which men
lay hold of vast wealth and finan
cial power are to be ultimately ov
erthrown by the sweep and swing
of this advancing revival in Chris
tianity. Such wasl the theme of
the baccalaureate sermon delivered
before an audience of 1,200 people
in College Armory, Sunday morn
ing. The speaker was Rev. William
Heppe, pastor of the First Method
ist church at Salem, and a recent
arrival i Oregon from Mt. Pleas
ant, Iowa. His subject was, "Christ
and the new age." "The most re
markable age of all time, he said,
was the first century, which usher
ed in the birth of Christ. It is a
towering summit to which all look
back, and beside it the centuries
that have intervened are but foot
hills. The centuries that brought
the revival of classical learning, the
Lutherian upheaval, the various
revolutions and the growth of the
spirit of liberty were cited as land
marks, but far above them towers
that initial century upon whose
threshold the world now stands.
The inventions, the easy means of
communication, the consequent in
tercourse of nation with nation, the
intermingled interests of the one
with the other have all prepared
the way for the new and mighty
sweep of christian influence that is.
to speed throughout the world
What has been seen' in the growth
and spread of the church and its
influence is but a trifle compared
with what is to come within the
passing century. Individuals are
to be possessed of and controlled
by the christian spirit, and are to
plough, to write, to mine, to man
ufacture, to legislate for Christ.
Nations are to disarm, and univer
sal peace is to prevail. The broth
erhood of man is to be on the lips
and in the hearts of all peoples, and
tribes and goverum nts are to learn
war no more. A new Eden is to
be opened for man, and peace,
plenty and happiness is everywhere 1
to rule. ' j
For an hour or more the great j
audience listened with undivided !
attention to the delightful theories
of the speaker. With many a fer
vid burst of oratory thought after
thought teeming with pleasant pre
diction and coming delights was
flung into the listening ears of the
multitude with an earnestness and
zeal that in many an instance, in
spite of the optimistic views of the
speaker, carried conviction. At
the close the graduating class arose
and remained standing while the
preacher told them of the opportun
ity the coming years presented,
and urged them to prepare for the
struggle by early acceptance of the
conditions in which he declared
Christianity is to play so large a
part. At times the scene was al
most dramatic, int he spell the ora
tor forced upon his hearers.
The service was the most pleas
ant in the history of the college.
Ihe day was ideal, and the frag
rance of wild roses floated in through
the open windows and mingled with
the perfume of the flowers inside.
Decorations of Lady Washingtons
and cypress: were about the stage in
profusion, and three huge palms
were conspicuous on the platform.
Cedar boughs were festooned about
the room, which with the setting of
humanity in the galleries and main
floor made a scene seldom beheld.
The program was like the others
that have preceded it. There
were anthems by the Ladies Chor
us, and hymns by the congregation.
The college faculty, the city min
isters and the singers occupied the
platform. Rey, Carrick delivered
the opening prayer, Rev. Green
read the sciipture lesson and . Rev.-
Deck pronounced the benediction.

OREGON AT ST- LOUIS-
Webfoot Building to be Dedicated To
day The Exercises.
Today (June 15th) at two o'clock
is the time set by the Oregon State
Commission for the- dedication of
the Oregon State Building at . the
Louisiana Purchase Exposition at
St. Looisv An appropriate pro
gram has been arranged by Presi
dent Myers, of the Commission, and
the exercises will continue all after
noon. . '
Every state building at the fair
is dedicated on some particular day, ;
but as it is desired to hold the event
as early as possible, occasionally
two states will exercises the same
day, and this has'occurred to Ore
gon. This afternoon .while the
speech-making is going on at the
Webfoot house, a hundred yards
away representatives of Kentucky
will be going through the , same
program for the Blue Grass state.
In most of the state dedications
the exercises are held inside the
buildings, but as the replica of old
Fort Clatsop, which represents
Oregon, is not large enough to ac
commodate the crowds of visitors
that assemble on such occasions, it
has been decided by Mr. Meyers to
have the speeches delivered from
Immediately in front of the
building is a large open space that
will be sufficiently large to hold
all the people who wish to listen to
the addresses. The Oregon build
ing is low, with a log platform on
top, thus providing an excellent
place for tne speakers.. President
Meyers will open the exercises with
an address on the Oregon country,
the journey of Lewis and Clark and
the exposition in Portland in 1905.
President Frances of the Louisiana
Exposition will then deliver a re
ply, which will be followed by oth
er short addresses by Prof. F. G.
Young of the University of Oregon
at Eugene, and others.
Efforts will be made to secure
the services ef the Filipino band to
furnish music for the occasion.
Plenty of literature on Oregon will
be handed out. and 1905 Exposi
tion badges as souvenirs.
The reception committee will
consist of Mrs. Mary Phelps Mont
gomery of Portland, who is also
on the board of lady managers for
the St. Louis Fair, Mrs. W. H.
Wehrung of Hillsboro, and Mrs.
Senator G. W. McBride of St Hel
The commission has made every
effort to secure a large number of
Oregon visitors for the day. A spec
ial day for low rate tickets was se
cured at the solicitation of President
Meyers from the railroads, and
many Oregon people left for St.
Louis on June 7, the extra day
