There is much complaint at
the college about the acts of those
who help themselves surreptitiously
to plants, flowers and shrubbery
that grows about the campus.
First one and then another carries
away, a flower, a plant or, a slip
with the idea that it will make no
difference. The aggregate of these
little thefts is that those in charge
find their, efforts to beautify the
grounds practically lost. As fast
as they build up, the flower-seekers
tear down. It is innocent enough
individually, but collectively it as
sumes the character of an indefen
sible depredation. Those who
want flowers should apply for them
of Prof. Coote. Sometimes there
are things that can be spared, and
always in such instances those in
charge wilt ho fnun4 tn Kn.l.

Multnomah's goal. Root had a
fashion throughout ; the game of
hurdling the Multnomah linemen
for sure and good gains. It seemed
to worry her badly. She stirred
nervously every time Root did it
At last she could stand it no longer
and when Root had just" vaulted
for another five yards, she ripped
out, "I'd think they'd learn to stop
that." Evidently, the old man
was mad about Root's actions, but
so tar he had been quiet, . The old

Patachc tie Great Percheron Colt, is
0 Purchased By T. JL Fawcctt. v
A business transaction of more
than passing interest -to horse-
breeders of Benton county, occurred
Saturday in Corvallis. It involved
the transfer by sale;, to T. K. Faw-
cett, of the two-year-old : imported
Percheron colt, Patache, of .-which
extensive mention was made in the
last issue of the Times. This ani
mal was imported from 7 France ; by
McLaughlin Bros., after he had won
the highest honors which could be
bestowed by the . French govern
ment on a colt of his class. In
this country he 1 has also won - the
highest awards of several very pre
tentious stock exhibits,' and he will
surely advance; the .stock interests
of this locality very materially.
One of the awards which the French
government bestowed upon this
colt is a solid gold circular medal
nearly three inches in diameter and
more than one eighth of '. an inch
thick. It bears elegant inscrip
tion and figures. This animal's
weighs as stated heretofore, is 1880
pounds. The price which Mr.
Fawcett is said'to have -paid for the
colt is $4,400 ". v ,-'

Progress ,of Work 0. A.C.'s Experi-
ment Farm. : !
The principal Portland attraction
to Corvallis excursionists last Mon
day other than the football game,
was the Fair Grounds. The prepa
rations already completed or well
under way are sufficient to give vis
itors some idea of the exposition's
scope in reference to grounds and
buildings. The site is an admir
able one, commanding an extensive
view of the Cascade mountains, the
city of Portland, the Willamette riv
er and Guild's Lake, in the center
of which there is a wooded island.
Upon this island the United States
government buildings are under
construction. There is no doubt
that in the way of location the Le
wis & Clarke Fair will surpass any
exposition so far held in this coun
try or elsewhere. -
The .. principal structures and
buildings to be erected by the com
mission are the electric tower, hor
ticultural building, water tower,
forestry, foreign, liberal arts, agri
cultural, fire department, public
comfort, public shelter, machinery
and electricity building, the bridge
of nations, which connects the main
grounds with the island. Tbe most
noteworthy of these which are
about completed are the forestry,
foreign exhibits, liberal arts and
agricultural buildings.- The three
latter are extensive and beautiful
structures, but perhaps the most
attractive and unique is the forestry
building. This,, throughout, with
the exception of the roof, presents
a fir bark surface. Immense saw
timbers put together in regular log
cabin style : form the walls, and
other parts, -which,' on account of
their form, could not be natnrally
bark-covered, are artificially cover
ed, with bark.
What is known as the experi
mental farm, embraces between sev
en and eight acres. It is under the
supervision of the Oregon Agriult-
ural college. Their ground has
been tastefully laid out in walks
and plots and much seeding" and
planting has already been done.
Large varieties of perennials have
been planted. " Annuals for the
most part will be attended to later
A great number of plants are being
grown at the college which are to
be transplanted in the spring on
the experiment farm. Lawn and
other grasses have already been
sown and they are doing nicely.
x here are to be seventy-five plots
of vegetables. Prof. Coote v visits
the grounds every few weeks and
poshes the work, .of which he has
the supervision, as rapidly as the
weather conditions will permit,
Root was stopped from another
touchdown - for the : orange- , He
had broken away from the scrim
mage line with the ball under his
arm. . Two big Multnomah . men
made ,for him, ; but he straight
armed both and went. Chester
Murphy alone was in striking dis
tance of him. Murphy had to stop
him or Root would be free for an
other -touchdown. ' Every person
in the galleries saw the crisis and
hung breathless cn the outcome.
Root ploughed on, ready to stright
arm. Sut the wuy Murphy Knew
the force of that arm. He ' had
seen two men fall - before its resist
less sweep. At the supreme and
only moment, he threw himself and
threw v himself and with one hand
seized Root by the ankle. , The
play won the game for' the Port
landers by what it saved.
The OAC line and the way it
held was a striking feature of the
play. It was far safer than was
ths heavier line of the Portland
ers. Many an assault was direct
ed at Bower but that redoubtable
player always hurled it back. Time
and time again Bundy"s and Dun
lap's and Steckle's . positions jvere
tried for openings but nearly . al
ways ineffectively. -. It -was not un
til the grouping of a combination
of fresh star players that "enabled
Multnomah to get away for end
runs that the clubmen were finally
able to make headway.. ..
One of the prettiest features of
the game was hurdling by Wil
liams. He cleared Murphy in one
of these for a seven yard gain . to
the eminent surprise of that tricky
warrior. Two boys that made
good in the game were Rae Walker
and Emily at ends, both of whom
played star ball, while Rinehart
from whom much was expected,
never played more brilliantly.
