There is guessing locally over the
question of how big tbe crowd will be
at the coming celebration. One man
In position to know figures out tbat
more people will be in Oorvallis at that
time than have been In attendance at
any local celebration since the 4th
when they had tbe sham battle. tThe
latter Instance was about a dozsn
years ago, Tbe fact that Dallas and
Lebanon are the nearest towns that
are celebrating makes it likely tbat
Oorvallis will have a very large crowd.
An innovation on the usual cus
tom has been planned by the general
committee for public convenience at
tbe celebration. Many will approve,
but others, ot course, will kick. There
are always thoee who Kick. A man
wbo fell heir to a fortune of $100,000
kicked because the inheritance wasn't
all money instead of part real estate.
Tbe proposed innovation is temporary
seats to be placed at tbe outer edge of
the pavement along the principal
blocks on Main street. It will be a
resting place for tbe aged, infirm and
weary. It will be a place for mothers
with babes in their arms to rest tor a
moment. They won't be able to see
much, but they will get that precious
few minutes of rest tor which people
in crowds bo many times long It the
not miaatternoon or a 4th ot tiuiy.
The eeats are to be placed In position
Saturday afternoon, and will be avail
able tor the sacred concert Sunday
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 up 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 be a fire,
which is liable to occnr any night, there
would be bnt 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.
