Two revivals are in progress
in Albany, and all business houses
-were closed from 11 to one yester
day so business men could'Jattend a
union meeting at the Opera House.
A choir of 100 voices, an orchestra
a noted gospel singer, all the min

All kinds of reforms for pheas
ant hunting are proposed at Salem.
Letters of inquiry have been receiv
ed by leading Corvallis sportsmen
as to what if any changes should
be made in the laws. One local
hunter has- recommended that
shooting begin September 15th and
continue to November 1st, and that
no sale of birds be permitted. A
law reducing the limt from ten to
five birds per day for one .hunter
is said to be popular.
' At the county clerk's office
the work of making the extensions
of the assessment roll is in prog
ress. It is a task requiring great
care, and is tedious in the extreme.
In all, there are no less than 41
funds, including the various special
levies, the road funds, and the or
dinary levies. To give to each
taxpayer the particular ; funds that
belong thereto, and to carry out, the
extensions correctly requires a clear
head and a deal of patient labor. .

When the Times went to press
yesterday afternoon, deep concern
was felt for the safety of Miss Grace
Huff, dangerously ill with apendi
citis. An alarming symptom was
that her fever continued to rise.
Otherwise her condition was report
ed as somewhat better.
The funny editors of the state
are surrounding "11-7" with all
sorts of cute embellishments the
numbers being those descpritive
of the towuship in which the no
torious fraudulent entries were
made by Puter, McKinley & Co.
Some how it has not occurred to
Wex J. or even to X. Ray, to as
sociate the once popular game of
craps. Still it may be that in these
times of strenuous grand juries, it
is unsafe to disclose any know
ledge of a gambling game.
It cost $19,900 to operate Ben
ton county last year. A statement
of the various items of expense is
to be found in another column.
The detailed account is made up
each January by the county clerk
and forwarded to the secretary of
state, by whom it is used later on
in determining Benton's portion of
state taxeSi Formerly each county s
portion of state taxes was determ
ined by a state levy on the value
of taxable property in each, but
now it is figured from an average
of the expenses of each county for
a period 01 five years. there is
not a bit of doubt but Benton suf
fers and that some of the larger
counties are beneficiaries under the
plan. - . ,
SINCE THE DROUTH.
A Jug From the South He Wanted a
- Prescription What the Doctor is
Following is the certificate a phy
sician must make when he writes
a prescription which entitles the
holdeCJo adropof the crayther."
"State of Oregon,
County of Benton.
I hereby certifiy upon .my honor
that I have personally examined
that I find him or her actually sick
and in need of the foregoing alco
holic stimulant prescribed by me as
medicine, for which he or she . is
an applicant; that I am a regular
practicing physicianand following
the practice of medicine as my
principal and usual calling and
.................. .:....m. d.
Could I get this jug filled?"
"Might fill it for you with coal oil
or gasoline; why, what do you
want in it?" The drug clerk
knew what was wanted in the jug
his grin showed that. "Want
rock and rye; dont want it for my
self ; neighbor's got awful bad cold
and he wants it." The jug came
to town from away out in Southern
Benton It wasn't Rich Irwin's
jug for they say Rich doesn't keep
one. But it was a jug. and a South
Benton jug, and in spite of the
strenuous efforts to fill it, it ', went
home empty. . -
"Gimme alcohol," he said dis
playing an empty bottle. The man
behind the counter was E. Allen.
He, in front of it, was a first class
specimen of tramp. . If the latter
had only known, he would , never
have tackled that proposition.
"Gimme alcohol," he repeated as
the- druggist looked -him over.
"Can't; this is a dry town; besides
you have got enough already.''.
"Haven't had a drop, pon'my hon
or. Where can I find a physician ?'
"There goes one now," said the
druggist, as Dr. Farra passed the
front door. The man with the
bottle made a dash. He bolted out
the front door and the next instant
ran into .the arms of Officer Osburn
who stowed him away in the city
jail for the night.
' 'Say, Doc; my wife' s feeling aw
ful bad; she's sick as "she can be.
Say, Doc, what's the chance to get
a little a er prescription, ,you
know, you know, Doc." He look
ed thirsty as could be. He hadn't
had a drop since the drouth began. I
If was pathetic, but it couldn't be
helped. "Can't do it Bill; can't
do it. , Would like to. Expect
your wife needs it; but this law is
awful strict." Then there was a
Jeep sigh that sounded almost like
a wail in the dim "distance. Then
the applicant turned on his heel,
and ripped out something that
sounded like a bone struck with a
a meat axe. '
THE RAILROADS LEAD.
Split Freight Rate in Middle Colonist
Fares for Lewis and Clark.
It won't be long . until things
will be doing in Oregon. One Port
land hotel man has an application
already for a party of eighty 'East
erners who want to spend three
months in Oregon during the Fair.
The railroads arS announcing the
lowest passenger rate yet, and to
cap the climax the Harriman lines
have split the rate on colonists
household and personal effects in
the middle. The former rate was
a dollar per 100 pdunds, but for
the Fair excursion it , will be 50
cents, equal to a cut of more than
$100 per car from the middle state
and eastern points. Every sign is
that within the next few months
more strangers will visit Oregon
than have seen, the state in- the
past dozen or score of years. More
than anybody else, apparently, the
railroads are doing their part-to
make the greatest possible success
out of the occasion. The colonists
tickets are to be sold in the East,
to make the rate the same to Ash
land or any other point in Oregon
that it is to Portland, which means
that the tourists will all or near
ly all . take a turn through
the Willamette Valley, and see
Corvallis along with the other
towns. Incidentally, Corvallis
ought to follow the example of the
railroad people, and arrange in ev
ery way to give the expected visit
ors the best possible impressions of
Oregon and her people, and induce
them if possible, to pitch ' their
tents in this land of big apples and
THE DAY SET.
But Hadn't Father's Consent No 'Li
censeAnd What Happened.
He was about to be married. It
was the girl's stepfather that went
with him after the license. "No;
we can't issue a marriage license to
you if you are only 20." said the
deputy clerk, "you will have to
have the consent of your -father be
fore we can fix you up." "Yes,
but my father is 100 miles from a
telegraph station on the other side
of the Cascade mountains way
down in Iake county." ''Sorry, "
said the deputy, "sorry, but we
can't help you."
Of course, it was all a bitter dis
appointment tro the la'd.'-The- day
set, the girl waiting, everything
all ready, but no license to be had,
all because he was too young, by
a year. A thirsty man with an
empty jug in a dry town is a sad
thing, but it is as nothing compar
ed with the case of this young man,
He leftthe place without a license.
But later in the day he returned.
For the sepulchral look that was on
his face when ne went away, there
was the smile of a . wedding morn.
In his hand he carried a letter. It
had arrived but a few "minutes be
fore. It was from the father, and
by mere accident it contained sen
tences that in effect gave the par
ent's consent to the wedding, and
the license was promptly issued.
The sequel was the Wright-Harris
nuptials, a week ago. :-
