Sidewalks and Pavements not to te
Used for Displaying Wares,
It is now unlawful for dealers to
make displays of their wares on
the pavements in front of their es
tablishments. It is likewise un
lawful for bicycle racks to be main
tained on sidewalks. The new re
quirements are provided tor in an
ordinance that passed the city coun
cil Monday night. The language.
of the ordinance is, "All sidewalks
and crosswalks within the corpor
ate limits of the city of Corvallis
shall be left entirely unencumbered.
Any trader, merchant or other per
son violating this section, or ob
structing any sidewalk, crosswalk
or any thoroughfare within the
said city shall upon conviction be
fore the police court be punished
by a fine of not to exceed twenty
dollars, or by imprisonment in the
city jail not to exceed 10 days, or
by both fine and imprisonment at
the discretion of the court."
x The ordinance was introduced
months ago, when it was read twice
and referred to the street commit
tee. Inquiry was made by various
councilmen amonsr merchants and
dealers as to the advisability of the
move, and a general sentiment m
favor of the ordinance was found
to exist. That at least was the
statement of several members of
the council when the ordinance
was under consideration.
W. W. SAUNDERS.
"His Letter to a Corvallis Friend Now
' on His Farm Near Spokane.
' Once the name of W. V. Saund
ers was much heard about Corval
lis. His career in this city and in
Oregon, is recalled by the receipt
of a letter from him, and the two
trials on a charge of murder, the
jail delivery and flight down the
Coast with a sensational escape
near Cape Perpetua of the fugitives
are all brought back to the recol
lection ot oldtimers. Then, there
was a final sentence to prison, the
nine years of service there and fin'
ally a deserved pardon at the hands
of Governor Pennoyef, on condition
- that Saunderi would leave Oregon,
and not return. ;.''
The pardoned Jman went to Spo
kane, where his story was told by
the newspapers the evening after
his arrival, and where in days and
and months and years that followed
Saunders became a successful law
yer, ultimately amassing a com
petence in the enjoyment of which
he is now spending his time on his
farm near Spokane, in what is des
cribed as broken down health. Mr.
and Mrs. James Taylor spent five
weeks' at the Saunders farm, dur
ing their late sojourn for the winter
. The letter referred to was receiv
ed by George A. Wagjpner. In
, it, acknowledging the gift from a
friend of Mr. Waggoner's ' 'Stories

"I awaited a convenient occasion
to read your book which came last
week when I was laid by the heels
with an acute attack of sciatica.
This was the time convenient and
I read the book throueh without
putting it aside. If you have had
any experience along those lines,
sciatica lines, the mere fact that I
read it without a break under the
circumstances named would be
abundant proof that I enjoyed it
very much indeed. To anyone
having interest 'in Oregon, past
and present or future your . little
volume will prove most interesting
It is to such works as yours, in
cidents, stories and stirring- ad
ventures, told by those who parti
cipated therein that : the future
student of Oreeon's most romantic
past must look for his facts upon
which to found the complete his
. torv of those pioneer days and of
those rugged but grand old men
and women who, in the fear of God
and love of country laid the foun
dations broad and deep for Ore
gon's glorious future. Pity 'tis
that more of those 'who wae thae'
in the first fifties have not been
moved to write of what they heard,
saw and did. in those stirring times
when an empire was being made
almost in a day! , What a tale for
unborn generations to read would
the every day experiences of those
'men of '52' make were it written
in the terse, graphic style most
founders of a state unconsciously
have. You have contributed your
portion towards forming for the
future the picture of those days and
you have done it well. Perhaps

Effect of New R. F. D. Routes is
Sweeping What New Arrange-;
. ments are.
Big changes are involved in the
establishing of the new R. F. D.
out of Corvallis. The Bruce post
office as a resultis to be abolished.
That takes place May 31st, The
Inavale office is also to be aband
oned. That takes place on the
same date. The Monroe star serv
ice will still be operated, but the
carrier will not deliver mail along
the route. This arrangement goes
into effect after next Saturday.
That means that residents along
the way who have been receiving
mail placed in their boxes by the
Monroe carrier, must at Once pro
cure and put up mail boxes approv
ed by the government. The change
is one of the most important of all.
No R. F. D. canier is allowed to
deliver mail in other than approved
boxes. This means that unless
regulation boxes are put - up and
ready for use by next Monday
residents along the way will go
without mail until such boxes are
The new route, which is known
as Corvallis number four goes into
operation next Monday. On that
day the Inavale star route will be
discontinued. The new route will
make no less than seven R. F. D,
routes in operation in Benton. Four
of them are out of Corvallis, one
out of Monroe, another leaves
Junction and enters Benton for
most of its patrons, and the seventh
is R. F. D. nnmber four out of Al
bany, which does business exclu
sively in Benton county. It all
means that perhaps nine-tenths of
the population of the county is
within the limits of R. F. D. mail
service. Progressive and advanced
is Benton county. Wfth its splend
id rural telephone service and its
daily mail lacilities at nearly every

OPENING IT NOW.
Oder Bottled in October It is Sweet
' as When it Came From the -
: !,'"' . ' Press.
Sweet cider so preserved that it
has exactly the same flavor and
sweetness that it had " the day . it
was made last tall, is on hand at
the colleere. - The experiment o:
Prof. Pernot for preserving it was
referred to in the Times at the
time the beverage was treated.
Samples recently tested, demon
strate the plan to be entirely suc
cessful, and render it certain that
an industry in cider bottling is like
ly to be the consequence:
The method of treatment of tha
cider is to destroy the ferment
germ by a temperature so low that
it will not cook the apple fiber
that may be in solution and also
not destroy the natural flavor. For
the purpose a temperature of - 160
degrees, secured by steam process
is applied. This is sufficient -to
destroy the vegetable cell but not
enough to kill the spores. Accord
ingly, 24 hours later, when the
spores have developed into cells,
the same heat in then applied.
Twenty four tours later, as a pre
caution, a third application of heat
is made. Then the cider is corked
up in bottles tightly enough to pre
vent the air from coming in eqntact
and the bottles are laid away. Such
bottles opened Monday - contained
cider as sweet, and wholesome as
ever came from a press. The fea
ture of the process is that by rea
son of the simple method , of the
treatment, anybody can preserve
the beverage for future use at a
very trifling expense.

HOW THEY RAN.
Two Great Records Tied Williams
Did One and Smithson, the '
The Coast record in the 100 yard
dash tied and the Northwest col
lege record in the 220 yard dash
likewise tied, were results in the
dual meet between Columbia Uni
versity and OAC on college ' field
Saturday. The fast time in the
1 00 was made on a track that
rises' 15 inches in the stretch was
otherwise slow, and tha,t too with
a strong wind blowing. . Smithson
won it, with Kelly, the star sprint
er at his side and Williams, a Johnny-on-the-spot,
when the finish
was made. The tying df the
Coast record in the 220 was by Wil
liams, after a run. that in the spec
tacular in sprinting, eclipsed any
thing of the kind ever sean on col
lege field. From the start to . tl e
very finish, Kelly, Smithson and
Williams ran - with - magnificent
dash and very evenly. As they
rounded the last turn in the stretch
Williams had a lead of perhaps a
yard which he maintained until the
tape was breasted, Smithson and
Kelly finishing close behind in a
race that experts describe as one of
the finest events ever seen in the
sprinting line. The time made in
the 100 as well as in the 220,is the
same as was made at Berkeley at
the same time, in a tryout in which
the big University was select
ing men for a team to come to the
Lewis and Clark fair. ;' '
The meet was not exciting, be
cause after the first event or two
it became apparent that the Colum
bia team had no show to win. It
will be otherwise on Thursday of
next week, when the University of
Washington team comes down
from Seattle for a meet with OAC.
Seattle has been carrying off the
track championship for some years
but OAC is a disputant for the
title this season. Incidentally, the
meet will be the first that ever
took place between OAC and the
Washington eleven. They have
encountered each other in football,
each team having wo victories to
its credit with the rubber (; to be
played in Corvallis next autumn.
The score in the meet with . Col
umbia Saturday was 87 for OAC
and 17 for Columbia. A good
crowd was present. The summary
