There is talk of a new church
on the site now occupied by the
Simpson Chapel, a mile and a half
from Dusty. The Methodists are
discussing the matter, and if the old
site is not satisfactory, it is likely
that the new church will be erected
a little farther up the road. For
the purpose of raisin? funds for the
cause, an ice cream social was

other one street in town. Among
them may be noticed the new resi

lots northeast of the Logaa Hayes
dwelling, the lumber being already

to the George Smith house, known
as the Lafe Wilson place; new walks
around and a new roof on the Da
vid Osburn house; a new roof on the
Miles Starr house, and a new wood
shed ai the Susan Starr home.
For an avenue with such a question
able name, this is indeed a showing
of which to be proud.

horse near Ben Martins place west

Indications are thtt the hop
crop in this vici nity will be much
lighter than usual, due to the lack
of rain du-ing the Spring and early
summer months Jamei Qaburn
says the yield in the Beach ya d a
cross the Willamette will not be a
bove one half. . The quality, how
ever, will be excellent, and t he dan
ger of lice and mould, . because of
limited-foliage, will be reduced to
the minimum. It is said that the
yield ;is also much shortened; in
other yards. 1
Action was. taken st Wednes

from the war department is to the
effect that First LieutenentQuinlsn
of the 9th cavalry is available for
detail to the position, and can be
sent to OAC, if the college authori
ties so desire. Lieutenant Quinlan

THE IRREPRESSIBLE BULL,
. Tne two Ladies he Treed-A Late
JThe iarm bull raised a commo
tion on the Thomas Cooper . place
the other day. He treed a couple
of ladies of the house-hold, and
stood beneath, pawing dirt and bel
lowing as be waited - for them to
come down. The process continu
ed until Mr. Cooper, attracted by
the noise, hastened to the scene,,
and drove the belligerent bovine
from the neighborhood. Theinci-i
dent, according to the account, be-:
gan, when Mr. Cooper, who was at
work in the barn, beard a terrible
scream. It was followed "by an
other, and another, when he began
making tracks in the direction of
the housp, whence the screams came.
All kinds of visiocs were in his
minds eye until heneared the house,
when out in the orchard he saw the
bellowing bull with numerous other
cattle gathered about. Then the
flutter of a dress and a female figure
in an apple tree and another in a
big cherry tree caught his eye.
The first lady was Mrs. Cooper
and the other his daughter, Mrs.
Newton. The bull had a reputation,
and when he showed signs of an at
tack, the ladies saved themselves
by climbing the trees, where they
were besieged until Mr. Cooper ar
rived. It took but a little time for
bull and his band to be scattered
when the besieged women came back
to earth again, thoroughly disgus
ted with the monarch of the Cooper
pastures. ' -

meeting and addressed the , board
briefly, ' requesting permission to
send such students to the college,
and invoking such favors for them
as could be bestowed. He said
the college had been selected by his
society because of the better courses
offered for the purposes of the pro
posed students. The latter in gen

educated, and are after instruction
to fit them for the practical affairs
of life, . Japan, he pointed out as
an example of what could - be ac

for India, and the plan for the work

institutions all over the country, to
gather the ways of the :- Western
peoples and carry them back for
adoption in their own country. '
