The heavy rains of Monday
brought gladness to farmers and
storekeepers. For the one, the
downpour insured the sprouting of
hundreds of acres of wheat al
ready sown, and dollars and dol
lars in probable sheep pasture, and
gram to sell' next yeai. And they
, made tor the store keepers a good
sale ot umbrellas and winter goods'.
"That's the tenth umbrella that has
gone out of the store during the
day,' ' remarked a merchant as he
saw a lagy pass out with a brand
new rain" spread. That was at two
o'clock in the afternoon and the
umbrallas sold and spread for the

stores during the day doubtless

machine is an invention of Mr.
Austin, and is a disk sharpener

sharpen discs wi h a file, one disc

dearest Bill; is our engagement
broke?" Bill "Yes, Angelina;
it's broke." Aoeelina "Oh,
Bill; my Bill; this cruel, cruel blow;
why, oh, why, this thusness, Bill?"
Bill "It isn't because I do not
love you, Angelina. You are the
apple of me eye. But, go, girl, go

Apparently, while in St. Louis
Mrs. Farra lost a hand bag such
as ladies are wont to carry about
in lieu of the pockets with which
the habiliments of men are bless
ed- Information as to the loss
comes in a peculiar way. The
finder turned out to be an honest
person It would be wicked to say
that is peculiar, but it would be as
wicked to say all "finders" are
honest. The only thine in the
Farra satchel that furnished a clue
for identification was a postal card
addressed to Mrs." James Taylor,
Corvallis. With this as a starter
the finder addressed a letter to Mrs
Taylor, relating the facts, and mak
ing inquiry as to the name of the
writer of the card, and requesting
Mrs. Taylor to telegraph or write.
Meantime Mrs. Farra has left St.
Louis, and is well on her way by
short journeys to New York City,
In due time she will receive her
satchel and its contents possibly
after arrival at hom.

members, two facts were observa
ble First, all the members seem
to understand that in order to get
a system of monntaiu water, the
city will have to extend financial

1 he other fact seems to be, that all
the membets of the council are
firmly in favor of extending such
aid. either i i whole or in part, and
that all are willing to do everything
possible 10 install yure water in

The fact that a committee had
been appointed by the "Citizens
League to further tbe idea a'nd
plans for' mountain water was cited
as an evidence that the ' people
want pure water, and a declaration
by one member that the council

DIED AT ALBANY.
A new charter, or a revised
charter for Corvallis. is what City
Fathers figure on. The old grant
of power from the legislature has
many a shortcoming. It has had
the city in the courts as a victim
on numerous occasions. Some
times it holds water, figuratively
speaking, and sometimes it doesn't.
It fails also to grant to the muni
cipality certain powers that it
ought to have, and pretends in
some instances to grant things it
does not, in fact grant at all. In
short, the antique old i instrument
is not tfie constitution that a best
and growing Corvallis ought to
have. Monday night, a committee
was appointed to examine into and
report to tne council some
