ARMIES OF CATERPILLARS.
Bow They Stripped a Prime Orchard-
Arid How They get Stripped.
What to do with the caterpillars
is a question of the hour in var
ious districts of Benton.lt is an up
permost question in fact in Cor
vallis. The pests infest rosebushes,
crawl over the flowers and inhabit
the ornamental trees. . Housewives
in the midst of hbuse cleaning are
corrmelled to stoo freauently - to
vent spleen and a horrible death on
stray pillars that have crawled
from house vine into the pantry.
A prune orchard out at Norton's on
the C. & E.. is said to have been
completely stripped of every green
leaf. An Alspa correspondent re
cently related that the pests were
prevalent in that section in march-
In Corvallis, home owners are
fighting them with fire and poison.
A pole with a blazing rag saturated
with coal oil and set afire at one
end and a fierce and furious woman
at the other end, is one of the chief
perils that beset the pillars. Some
times there is danger by this meth
od to the house, but the story is

At Twenty Eight Cents Something
About a Small Boy's Transaction.
Eighteen dollars and ' twenty
cents was what a fourteen year old
boy, who hails from the north of
town sold hisfwool for Thursday.
His name is Wilson, and his $18.20
was the wool product form only five
sheep. It is a big story, but it is
a fact, this $18.20 for the wool
from only five sheep. The ' aver
age per-head was $3.64. This is
nearly four times what some sheep
sold for last fall, and yet it is only
what the wool went at, and the
youngster has the sheep left. The
average fleece was 13 pounds, and
the price was 28 cents per pound.
The five sheep were pets that the
boy rescued as orphans a year ago
and has since cared tor on his
father' sf arm. It is probably one
of the best sold wool clips of the
year, and one of the best handled
flocks of sheep, and 'it was all done
by a boy.
On the same day wool was de
livered in town that was contracted
months ago that went at - only 20
cents per pound. The price rose
Wednesday to 28 cents and it stood
at that figure Thursday, and had
not yet fallen yesterday, though a
drop was expected. Only small
lots scattered here and tnere, like
that of the thrifty lad from the di
rection of Soap Creek, remain un
sold. - The wool price is the high
est touched in Oregon in 30 , or 40

For Albany Evening Local That
Would Mean no More Round Trips
to Portland in one day.
v Jack Mayo, the well known rail
road man and former Corvallisite
was in town for ari hour Thursday
In addition to his duties as traffic
manager of the Astoria railroad, he Bertha Cramer
has recently been made general Marie Cathey
freight and passenger agent of the Nora Thomson
Corvallis & Eastern, and Thursday Modesta Rosendorf Frances Dilley
stopped over enroute on a Dusmess PearllVincent . Alda Metcalf
trip from Yaquina to Portland. Winnie Michael Pearl Horner
The proposed change of time on
the Albany local, referred to else
where, may interfere seriously with
the Corvallis train facilities. The
local is scheduled to leave Portland
ai six in the evenine, arriving in
Albany so late that the C. & E.
evening train cannot wait for it.
The consequence would be tht
the round trip to Portland in a day
could no longer be made, and that
at a time when it is most desirable,
viz. durine the fair. ' It would
also put the Portland evening pa
pers in this city out of businass in
a large measure, as they would not
reach Corvallis until the morning
The only way to obviate the
difficulty would be for the evening
train to wait the arrival of the Al
bany local from Portland at nine
o'clock, but that, Mr. Mayo says
it is not likely to be done because
it would involve an extra railroad
crew, which would not pay. All
in all, the prospect for the evening
train service." at the moment, is not
