A big driv1 of 3 million feet of
fir logs to come from the McKen zie
has been contracted tor - by- Mr
', Strong, and is expected in Corvallis
the latter part of August. Three
teams were sent up from Corvallis
this week to assist in the logging
operations for the local mill.
William Bailey of Fairmount,
aged 72, and Mrs Sarah Edlemann,
of Corvallis, aged 70, were married
Tuesday in this city, Rev.T T. Vin
cent officiating. The happy pair
have gone to housekeeping in the
bride's home in the northwestern
part of town. A party of small boys
gave the newly wedded pair a chari
vari Tuesday night.
Anion? the seaside visitors to
pass through Corvallis Thursday,
was Hon. Stephen F. Chad wick,
judge of the superior court at Col
fax, Washington. He is the son of
the late Govenor S.F.Cbadwick,
and is an Oregon boy who has gone
abroad and won distinction. His
term of four years as judge is ex
piring, and during his sojourn at
Newport, Tudge Chadwick received
intelligence that the republican con
vention had adjourned without ma
king a nomination for a successor
for him, in cossequence of which
he will have no opposition for the
place. Five Oregon boys are judg
es in Washington, two of tbem be
ing justices of the supreme court.
If James Flett does his duty,
, some tree along the road to Yachats
will shortly display the picture of
E. E. Wilson, with a full descrip
tion under it. together with an offer
of $50 reward for his capture. As
a joke, some of Lawyer Wilson's
friends in this city, prepared the
picture and sent it to Mr. Flett for
posting. They fancy that when
hunting party discover the picture
things will be doing. Some of
them, are, however, wondering as
to consequences, if some denizen of
the vicinity should take the joke
seriously, and proceed to capture
Edin order to earn the reward.

shipped from Corvallis, Captain A.
i W. Rose is now runninsr a oeddlar's
cart in St. Louis. It will be re
membered that Mr. Rose went
East with a carload of prunes from
the D. C. Rose orchard, the latter
part of June. The purpose of the
trip was to dispose of the product
to commission houses and other
dealers, as had been successfully
done with a similar shipment in
- previous years. When last heard
from, however, Mr. Rose had met
with slow sale, and to hurry mat
ters, had bought a horse and cart
and gone to peddling.
Si Bradley, the wellknown
section foreman on the b. if. is
thankful that he is still alive, for it
might easily been otherwise, Tues
day. Seated on a railroad veloci
pede, Mr. Bradley was riding along
in front of the hand car north of
Corvallis about 10 a. m. Suddenly
the velocipede jumped the track,
throwing the rider off in front of
the machine. The hand car was
too close to be stopped, and it pass
ed over the prostrate man. No
bones were broken, but Mr. Brad
ley was considerably bruised and
' shaken up, and thinks he owes his
life to a miracle.
. A drive of 150,000 feet ot hard
wood logs from up the Willamette
has just reached the Corvallis saw
mill, and the force is now busy mak
ing hardwood lumber. During the
drive, a team driven by a man na
med Myers got in deep water among
the logs, in the vicm'ty of Hen
drick's landing, and for a timeit
looked as if . the whole outfit had
been born to be drowned. Both the
team and driver, however, escaped.
An all-dav meeting of the Wo
man's Home Missi nary society f
the South Methodist church was
held at McFarland chapel last Sun
day, and a most delightful time
was enjoyed by all who were pres
ent. A party of 50 friends -crossed
the river in skiffs from the Linn
county side, and were given a hay
rack ride from the landing to the
chapel. An interesting programme,
ice cream and cake, and a delicious
dinner were among the features of
the day that were most enjoyed. - ;
Thursday was a rainy day. It
is the first real rainy day since the
last of March. In April "the total
rainfall was 1.82 inches. In May.
it was .76 of an inch and in June
but .1,2 fell. The total for the three
months' was 2.9 inches, making the
season one of the dryest in years.
In consequence, there were broad
smiles on the faces of all the farm
ers who happened in town Thurs
day. These did not include any of
those who still have hay in the
field, whose opinion might be differ
ent. ''Its just what we want said
one tarmer "Will help grass.

boss at the college, doesn't know
yet how long he will have it rain.

reside now in Job's addition, where
the bride owns a comfortable home.
. The marriage which is unusual
in the suddeness with which it hap
pened after the first introduction of
the groom and bride is the result
of the good offices of a mutual
triend. He resides in the north
end of the county, where lived also
the groom, who is a late arrival in
the county. He knew . that ; the
latter was eligible, and when in
Corvallis last week the subject of !
the comfortable home of the bride
was. mentioned. "You have a nice
home here, and could well afford to
share it with, another." ' remarked
the mutual friend. "Yes. there is
plenty of room for two," was tae
arch reply. The next day, down in
Fairmount precinct, the . mutual
friend mentioned the subject of mar
riage to the groom, telling him of
a lady with a happy home, who
was not averse to the idea of shar
ing it with a man. "'Barkis was
willin'. " and the friend suggested
to him to climb into the buggy , at
once and start for Corvallis. "No,
wait till I change my clothes," said
the old gentleman.
Half an hour later, arrayed in
his best, including a tall and state
ly plug hat, the groom climbed in
to the buggy, and the two sped to
Corvallis. They went to the Edle
man home, where Mr. Bailey and
Mrs. Edleman were duly introduc
ed. "Can you bring me back next
Tuesday," was a question the
groom asked of the friend, after the
interview was over. The question
told the story of what had taken
place, told a tale of wedding bells
and a honeymoon for the fiances,
and "certainly, I can," was the

THE WORK PROGRESSING.
Delay in Securing Material, but
New Telephone Lines are
Work on the new Independent
telephone line has been somewhat
delayed, because of the inability to
secure insulator pins and cross arms
for the poles. The former are small
pins, with threads turned on one
end where the glass is placed, vand
they are turned on a machine that
has been at the sawmill. This ma
chine was recently bought by Arch
Horning of Philomath.' On some
account, a delay occurred in getting
pins there, and no more pins could
hbe obtained and the machine has
now been placed at the Benton
County Lumber mills, and a sup
ply of the required pins will be had
in a short time.
Material for the cross arms has
been very hard to get, and Shea-?-green
& Buxton have been obliged
to transfer their order from the
mills at the front, to the Philomath
establishment ; in . order to get the
desired lumber, and still there is de
lay in getting the goods- On the
new Ijne, holes are dug south of
Corvallis fpr a distance of five milee
and the work of placing the poles
in position is now in progress, On
the Linderman line, north of town,
the poles are up- for a ' distance of
six miles. A further cause of de-"
lay at the Philomath mills has been
occasioned by a shut-down that be
gan the fourth and has only just
ended. From now on, however,
it is thought that material will be
on hand so that the work may go
on with uninterrupted vigor.
Some of the city phones will
likely be placed in position next
week. ' .

tions sent out by the commission
and printed below:
"Whereas, it is the duty of this
commission to collect a full and
complete exhibit of the manufact
ures, arts,' industries and products
of the state for the Lewis and
Clark Centennial Exposition and to
encourage a greater interest among
the people of the different counties,
recognizing that the progressive
citizens of each community will be
better equipped tor a judicious se
lection of meritorious exhibits than
any agent whom , the commission
might send out, and ' . r V
" Whereas, it is the intention ' of
this commission to make the Ore
gon exhibit a collective one, set up
under the name of the county fur
nishing same, and crediting to each
individual contributor the exhibit
furnished by him,; and '
Whereas, to further insure that

the commission, and, delivered to
the nearest railway depot, address
ed to the secretary of this commis
sion. 3. That the committee ' having
charge of the gathering of such ex
hibits use every means to obtain
contributions from their citizens and
to keep the cost of their exhibits at
as low a figure as possible.
4. That this commission will
pay, on receipt of the entire 'coun
ual cash cost to the ..county, such
paymentto .be made upon being
vouched for by the county court
as to such actual cash expenditure,
but in no instance will- this com
mission pay a greater sum than
$500 for any single county exhibit.
This commission will require item
ized statement of expenditures,
showing exact . cost of labor and
product, with an inventory of each
item of exhibit, numbered on
