The members of the engineering
staff at the college have been en
gaged tor several days in changing
the system of electric wiring. ';'. The
old system is what is known as the
direct current, it being changed in
to the alternating current system,
Under the old reeime Ihere was a
diop'of 25 per cent, in
in the transmission from the power
station which is near the , Mechan
ical hall to Cauthorn hall, , while
as now arranged the loss is very
small instead of the bare copper
wire which was in use ; insulat
ed wire of a much smaller diameter
The alternating System is used
tor lighting the other for power "
transmission. As now installed the
change from the one to the other
may be expected without so .much
as stopping the machines while the
economy of power thus made is of
considerable importance. The de
velopment .of the alternating system
and modern methods of insulation
is what has made possible ' tbe
transmission ot electric " power for
long distances, and hence the utili
zation of the wafer power even
though it be situated many miles
from the city where such power
may be necessary.
The change is made at the col
lege in order that the apparatus
there may be in . accord -with the
modern practice, where many young
men seek training in that branch of
Prof. Tartar, of the Corvallis
public schools, will probably con
duct a summer . school again this
vaca ion, He has planned to open
a term on the 5th of July, and con
tinue it for six weeks. He will give
a vacation of a month before and a
month afterward, before the regu-
l' ""u" :tr 'fell term of school opens. The
parents, who desire conditions and
failures removed in order that pu
pils may be fully prepared to enter
a higher grade, . and move along
with the regular classes at the be
ginning of the autumn term. It is
also desired to make preparation
for taking examinations for certifi
cates. .The plan was tried last; va
cation time, and it was so favorably
received that.Prof. Tartar had -all
the pupils he could handle. The
public school pupils will only be
taught during forenoons, and the
afternoons will be devoted to coach
ing . teachers. Next Monday after
noon Prof. Tartar will be at the
public school building from one to
four, where any who desire terms,
information or advice can find him.
The opportunity is a very favorable
one for either pupils or teachers
who need good coaching in order
to have a fair start with the coming
vear's work. '

sibility that his hiding place might
be discovered. Contrary to reports
current, the officers have no clue to
his whereabouts, and , but a vague
idea of where he might be. Brooks

that their chief is not with them.

All persons using water for flowers,
lawns or garden will oblige the Company
by turning off the water promptly at nine
o'clock. While we keep steam tip all
night we do not keep the pumps running
all night, nor are we expected to. We
quit pumping between ten and eleven at
night, leaving the tanks: full, ' When a
number of hose are allowed to run all
night there is little water left in the tank
by morning. Should there he. a fire,
which is liable to occur any night, there
would be but little water for the occasion
and if there was there would be no force
to fight fire with, either from tank or
pump with so many hose open.
