. V . ROCK CREEK WATER. "
Chemical and bacteriological an
alysis shows that the water in Rock
Creek is in all things superior. The
statement of the experts who super
vised the investigation is that it is
as good if not better than Bull Run
or any other water. No other re
port ought to have been expected,
' since the source of the stream is in
the summit of Mary's Peak, where
there is neither sewer, drain or
seepage of any sort to contaminate.
If, in the future, the water from
this pure, mountain stream shall
be served in Corvallis households, a
healthful beverage for the growing
children, the invalid and all others,
it will be a condition most fortun
ate for the town and its people.
Pure water and fresh air are vital
-essentials in happy life, and in the"
procuring of either, dollars should
be little considered. ;
The New Bakery.
- Fresh bread is to be had every
morning at the new bake shop of
Small & Son. A first class baker
is"in charge of the ovens, and all
that an up-to-date bakery usually
offers the trade is to be had at
Small's. Fresh pies and cakes,
cookies and confections of all sorts
ready for instant delivery on tele
phone or other order. Every ef
fort will be made to please those
.who favor the place with patronage.
LOBSTER AND CORVALLIS.
They Two Stood and Chatted
Changes the Rolling Years Have
A Times writer stood by, the
other day while a citizen down in
the Uobster country talkedby phone
with the county clerk at the court
house It was all so different from
'. the old days, A man standing in
his house in far away Lobster ; and
, another in his office in Corvallis in
an animated conversation about
each other's health, the weather,
crops and other every day affairs
- waPa condition to lave dazed : the
old inhabitanTa few years ago.
"Hello old man, how are you?''
went on the clerk at one end of the
line, at which the oldtimer, could
he have been raised from the grave
and brought in to see the thing
done, would have dropped his jaw
in open mouthed amazement : and
possibly fhave turned pale at the
thought. A grand smile that
sounded like a horse laugh illumin
ated the features and the voice- of
the Corvallis talker; at which the
oldtimer, if present, in the flesh,
would in all likelihood have figur
ed it out that the talker was ready
r i-i. ui . i J t
to a citizen . used to phones , and
phoning, and accustomed to the
ways of this meteoric 20th century,
Si seemed mighty strange for a maa
in Corvallis and a - friend in Lob
ster to be engaged in a running
conversation with - as much ease
and satisfaction as - though they
were standing face to face.
The conversation was over the
new Independent line, V by which
there are now complete connections
throughout the Alsea country.
