HAS GOVERNMENT POSITION.
Joseph H. Wilson of Corvallis Law
yer m Irrigation service. : "
Joe Wilsos. -of , Ahis ixgty.. leaves
next Saturday to enter , upon his
duties as attorney for the govern
ment in the irrigation business.
His present detail is on the Carson
Truckee project in Nevada, and
will largely involve the making of
abstracts of titles and other duties
incident to land transactions in the
reclamation of arid lands. The
position is for the present tempo
rary, but is likely to develop into a
permanent place under : the civil
service. ' . - : - ,-1 .
Another person to enter the gov
ernment service in the reclamation
division is C. C. Hogue, former
auditor on the old Oregon Pacific,
and well known in Corvallis. He
has taken the civil service exami
nation for such a place in the re
clamation service, and it is probable
that his position will also become
permanent. Mr. Hogue is to leave
Albany for Klamath this week.

There And Flowers and Tears. ..
The funeral of Mrs. Louisa Irwin
occurred at the late home Sunday.
It is seldom that so many gather at
a country funeral as met to do rev
erence to the memory of Mrs. Ir
win. There were pioneer men and
women from Bellfountain to Cor
vallis. and fiom Monroe to Philo
math. It was a funeral assembly
mightily eloquent of the life well
and honorably sp.nt. ' . '
The service was conducted by
Rev. M. M. Waltz, who was ill.
He was assisted by Rev. Reeves of
Corvallis. The brief addresses of
each, the wealth of white roses and
other flowers, and the : sympathy
of -the neighbors . present brought
the hour into perfect concord with
the life of the dead. .
The interment was in the family
cemetery at the farm. A cement
vault, six feet by eight and three
and a half feet deep was construct
ed, and in it the body of the mother
and that of the son, who recently
died and which was taken up from
its temporary resting place, were
laid side by side. A cement cover
roof shaped and extending above
ground, and hermetically sealed'
completes the receptacle. At the
grave a brief address touching . the
life and work of the Pioneers was
given by E. M. Belknap and was
eloquent and touching: Henry
Komp of Irving, a brother of the
deceased was t the obsequies. " A
surviving sister, Mrs. Adam Hold
er, resides, east of the Cascades.
The only surviving members of the
family "of which Mrs. Irwin was the
head, is ex-Commissioner Richard

WEEN TEEY MEET.
Which Team will 'win Big Games on
- . . College Field Next Saturday. -
, Out on College hill everything is
preparation for the dual track meet
to take place next Saturday between
O. A. C. and State University
teams. For a whole year, the two
institutions have . been gathering
and preparing men for the . various
contests to be involved in the com
ing meet, and the outcome will be
a source of happiness for one side
and for disappointment ' for ,' the
other. Trine s men are all in ex
cellent cpndition for the meet. Three
good men and true, have been told
off to stand for the orange in each
of the 14 events, and in every in
stance the utmost to uphold : and
defend the prestige of old OAC
will be done by them. V ..
In all 122 points are involved in
the meet. Sixty two points ; are
necessary to win. Sixty two to 60.
was the score by - which Eugene
defeated the men from-Washington.
The latter, OAC skinned, 71 to 51,
By the comparative scores, OAC
should win. but then there is that
fhrek or chance, or whatever it may
be called that can step in any time
and tear up. scores figured out . on
paper beforehand. A slip by a
runner, a fall by - a pole vaulter, a
bad cold for a weight thrower, a
strain or a'sprain for any of them
all these things enter into- athletic
contests and always have : their
weight in making up the score. So
the question ot whether one sideor
the other will surely win, - cannot
be foretold, and cannot be ,. "known
until the" last event is finished next
Saturday afternoon. ; ;
One contest of particular interest
Satu'r. ay will be between Dow
Walker of OAC, and Captain Hug
of Eugene, in the hammer throw.
The" visitors think they have a sure
winner in Hug; Trine's men have
unlimited faith in their big football
center. The old hammer will get
many a fierce swing and will un
doubtedly be tossed further next
Saturday that it . has ever been
thrown on college field. Another
event watched for with some inter
est is the discus throw, in which it
is counted as nearly certain that
