The county road roller figured
in an accident the other day. Ben
Harris and Charles Miller also fig
ured in it. The machine weighs
six tons, and Harris and Miller,
with a team of eight hbrses were
using it on a hill grade near Lin-
dermans, on the Mt. View road.
Things were working smoothly,
nutil the big ring to which the team
was hitched gave way, when the
the roller with its passengers Be
gan a career on its own hook. When
it was through with its pirouetting,
the machine was bottom side up at.
the foot of the hill, and Harris and
Miller were scattered about in sev
eral directions. Nobody was hurt
end the chief damage to the roller
v-j tuc fiuaimig of the seat.
There la complaint among farm
era to tbe effect tbat the spring crip
will be very light. Toev go so far
a to say that In some field It will be
a practical failure. The late back
wardness t f tbe 6pripg, - aod tbe ab
sence ef rafn since is In large rairt as
signed as tbe cause. A gocd jffaio la
much desired now by everybody.
On a number of firm? in the
county, baying Is in ': progress. In
some Instances, farmers put toe, mow
er at work tbe latter pait "f last
week. Usually it is spots on high or
especially Ury land tbat are be
ing cut now. It is two weeks tarlier
than baying usually begins, aod is
due to lack of rain. Some farmers
say tbe crop will be very light.
A feature of the 4:h of July cele
bration at Corvallis is tbe racing meet
to be beld on Kigec'e track south of
town, the afternoon of July 2nd. The
events will be as follows: Three
minute trot or pace for green horses,

races 2 In 3 beat-1. Purse divided
60, 25 and 15 per cent. Entries

tries to W. H. Kline, Corvallis.
Later conditions bear out all
fcrmer statements with reference to
the prune crop. Tbe estimate of tbe
big Prune Orchard now is 200 bushels,
all old, when there ought to be many
thousand bushels. In tbe D. O. Rose
orchard, tbe trees are practically' bare
and the some is true of the Green
Peak . and Hugh - Finley orchards.
Tbe statement is that there Is a par
ti tl yield in the Excelsior orchard, and
tbat In some of the orchards in the
hills to tbe westwa'd there is a fair
sprinkling of fruit. The market,
which baa continued dull all Spring.
shows a slightly better tone, but is
not materially Improved.
Leo Burnett, son of the sheriff,
was injured In a runaway accident
Friday afternoon. He is a likely lad
to work, and recently gave np a job
on tbe butchers wagon to take charge
of tbe steam laundry delivery. The
laundry plant wes In process of ae-
movai, and the delivery wagon with a
number of 'clothes racks piled high in
it was making tbe trip from the old
to the new quarters. Near tbe Occi
dent il hotel, tbe horse took fright aod
begaa to run. Leo, was thro wn out
and a deep gash was cut in the top cf
bia bead. He was also shaken up and
bruised. . v .
The city smallpox patient Is ex
pected to come back into the world to
day. He was visited by Dr. Farra
Monday afternoon and his condition
found to be such as to warrant the
raising of the quarantine. Yesterday
he was provided with ample bathing
appliances, and some time today, af
ter a thorough fumigation of bis cloth
ing and such other precautions as are
necessary-, be will quit the pest bouse.
He was put under quarantine two
weeks ago tomorrow.
Tbe account Is that Hugh Finley
Is digging up hie prune orchard. He
has bad but one profitable crop Id seven
years, and has become wearied with
watching and waiting. He was the
pioneer prune man of the county aud
at one time had much confidence in
the industry. He has an orchard of
30 or forty acres, and with the experi
ence of tbe late years is convinced
tbat he can turn his land to better ac
count. Adjoining his orchard Is SI
Herrons, and be too, Is vexed with
conditions.' It is said that he will try
tbe busineBb one more year and tbat
if returns are not better than they
have averaged in the past, the grub
bing machine will be applied to his
treee and tbe land be turned to a ea'er
and surer crop.

That Benton county woods may
readily be transformed into the finest
furniture is evidenced by tbe work of
the Colbert Furniture Company. This
firm is making a refrigerator tbat is
one of the best on the market. It is
made In various sizes but all cf the
same general dee'go; they are made of
ash and oak, mounted with brass trim
mtngs. In tbe design they have de
parted from those generally on the
market, keeping in mind, however, the
accomodation of the house wife. Very
little space Is loet for It ia so arranged
with openings that all parts are easily
accessible. Tbe walls are not metal
lined as In many, tbey deeming this
not necessary, as wood Is a better non
conductor of beat and cold than met
al, but of course they do have all ne
cessary works, disher and drip pans,
which are so arranged as to be easily
removed when necessary. Proper
-precautions have also been taken for
ventilation. Through years of expe
rience tbeeeymen are now able to place
on the market an article that will
meet the strongest competition.
Tokio, June 18. In addition to

bound, carrying sick soldiers.
The ldxumi was sunk by the
Vladivostok fleet off Oshima ' island
last Wednesday morning. The Isl
and of Oshima is situated near the
northwest of the western entrance
of the T6Ugafu strait. The Idzumi
nam returning to Japan, and was'
carrying 108 passengers. The crew
took to tbe boats when tbe Rus3ian
fleet was sighted. . '..
lbe armored cruiser Gromoboi
signalled for the boats to approasb.
ibey complied, and all were taken
on board and confined between
decks over night.-
Thursday morning the noncom-
batants were released and sent a-
board the Japanese vessel TJnko,
which brought them to Maizum.
The Russian vessels are reported to
have sailed in the direction of Hok
Tokio, June 18 A total of 509
survivors af tbe Japanese trans
ports Sado and Hitachi, destroyed
by Russian warships, have arrived
at southern ports
The Russians permitted 610 non-
combatants to leave the Sado, but
there whereabouts is unknown.'
The Japanese officers and sol
diers who were detained on board
the Sado had prepared to commit
suicide, but changed their minds
when tbe Russians suddenly de
parted. There was apparently no
chance given the noncombatants on
board the Hitanhi to leave, and the
Russians raked the crowded decks
of the crippled transport with
shrapnels. The Japanese denounce
this action as barbarous, indicating
tbe clear intent of the Russians to
kill defenseless men inetead of a
simple desire to destroy the ship.
Washington, June 14. United
States Consul-General Gun mere, at
Tangier, Morocco, , today cabled to
the state department, indicating
that the negotiations for the release
of Ferdicaris and Varley have not
yet been completed. Just where
the hitch is, cannot be learned. It
is expected tbat it relates to the
vexed question of a guarantee by
the United States and Great Brit
ain of immunity for Raisuli and the
faithful observance of the Sultan's
promises. As a result of today's
advices, officials here have changed
their opinion as to the date of the
release of the captives, and say that
several days must yet elapse. -
