' 'I take pleasure in expressing to
you the thanks of the Exposition
management for the excellent
part taken by the cadets of the
Oregon Agricultural College in the
parade and ceremonies incidental to
the opening of the Exposition on
Thursday, June 1st. The splendid
appearance of your cadet body was
most favorably commented upon by
the vice president and other dis
tinguished visitors, which was , a
source of keen gratification to the
people of the state.
It was a man with a hoe.
The sun shone warm. With infin
ite patience and considerable flow
of perspiration, he waS applying
the hoe in an effort to clear away
the weeds and grass in the street
next the sidewalk. It all looked
good to passersby and they re
marked as how the example ought
to be followed. What if every
body in town would do the same
thing, they remarked as- they pass
ed on. In a little while by such
means what a transformation could
be worked in the appearance of
things. The spot where . all this
happened was at the Congregation
al church, and evidence of the work
is there to be seen and the neatness
of the environment still stands as
proof of all the ' foregoing. The
man with the hoe was Rev. Green.
There will be no service at the

Exercises in the Armory Wed
nesday afternoon attracted a large
crowd of people. The occasion
was the closing work in Miss Craw
ford's physical culture classes,
which were in fact, the final exam
ination. The gallery was crowded
with spectators, and an overflow
crowd jammed the main entrance.
The various evolutions by the
young ladies were the subject of
much favorable comment.
Half fare is all rhat it is to
cost to make the trip to Salem and
return tomorrow to see the big four
cornered track meet. The rate for
the round trip is $1.35, all provided
that 100 persons go, and the indi
cations now are that far more than
the requisite number will make the
journey. The Cadet band is to be
in the excursion, and will furnish
music during the meet. The ex
cursionists leave via the 6:30 C. &
E. train in the morning, and return
by the train which reaches Corval
lis at 10 o'clock in the evening.
The meet takes place at the Fair
Grounds at two o'clock p. m.

is to be given on the college - camp

rendition of the well known : play
was interfered with by showers.
Instead of an outdoor performance,
the players and their audience at a
delightful spot on Oak Creek, im
provised a play house out of an old
barn in which the play was render
ed. At the request of various peo
ple, Miss Crawford has consented
to give the play again, and it will
with the assistance of the weather
clerk, be given Monday evening on
the campus. Later," on account of
the sickness of two of the players,
the play will not be produced.
The brooder house and 'con
tents on the F. L. Miller poultry
farm near town was destroyed by
fire Thursday , night. : The con
tents consisted of about 250 chicks
a month old, three brooders, a
small quantity of oil for heating
purposes and a quantity of chicken
feed. The house was 16 by 25 and
was not valuable. The whole loss
aside from the chickens is not in
excess of $75. With 600 young
chickens in his yards,- Mr. Miller
could better afford the loss than
most people. The day of the fire
Mr. Miller and his man . debated
whether to - turn the chicks
out of the brooders and concluded
to leave them in another day or
two. The lamp that warmed the
place caused the burn, but how no
body knows. -

ALL BENTON TO GO.
Corvallis to be Deserted Only a Soli
tary Guard to Watch the
It looks now as if Corvallis would
be a relic,- a Jdeserted viliage, a
ruin next Thursday. All the busi
ness houses will be closed, and the
proprietors and the clerks will be
at the Fair. It will be7 Corvallis
day down there, and Corvallis is
going en masse toemphasiz ethe fact
before the multitude of Fair visit
itors. The town has a lot of things
up its sleeve. . It is the purpose to
go down there and behave decor
ously, but at the same time to do
thing that will make denizens of
other climes who happen to see us
dig up their geographies and see
whereabouts Corvallis is on - the
map. . ,
As to who is going to the Fair
that day, that has ceased to" be
talked about, and it hasYather be
come a quiry as to whether or not
anyone is going to remain at home.
The rate isso low that it is cheap
er to go on the excursion than it is
to sit on a dry goods box and whit
tle at home. The wear and tear on
the knife and the box will nearly
foot up more than an excursion
1 icket. Every thing is so favor
able for making the trip, and so
many are going that the main fear
is that there will be nobody left to
watch the towi, except the chief
of police who it is acknowledged,
under the stress of his 1 loneliness
may fall accidentally on his own
sword or shoot himself with his
own automatic, and none be left to
tell the doleful tale of how it came
about. Or hearing that the .town
was guarded but by a single man,
there might be an invasion from
Lincoln county and Peruna be
drunk and guzzled upon our regen
erate streets with reckless abandon,
and the lone, solitary chieftain of
the police force be unable to put
down the disorder or save the hon
or and sobriety of dry Corvallis
from the designs of the invaders,
As stated all Corvallis business
houses are to close for the day.
I They have signed an agreement to
tnat eiiect. The mayor is prepar
ing to issue a proclamation, declar
ing the day to be a municipal holi
day, and calling on all citizens to
rest from their labors. The Citi
zens League, comprising 100 in
fluential and leading citizens, has
unanimously and enthusiastically
resoluted, calkag Tipon -verybo$
i to make of the occasion, a holiday,
and to doall possible to swell the for
ces of the excursion of Corvallisites
at the Fair, and to assist in every
way to show the Fairites a bit. of
Western enterprise, by the show
ing made. A committee of the
1 League has canvassed the town and
J raised money. A special train has
I been secured to carry Corvallis to
I the fair in style. The League has
guaranteed that 900 passengers
will go on the train. The belief
now is that the number will be
2,000. Not one detail has been ov
erlooked, and the common guess is
that after the thing is all-over Cor
vallisites wTill be more than gratified
at the showing made.
To make the occasion the more
successful, it is proposed to-ueive
the event more of the charactepof
Benton county day. The showing
made in the parade and otherwise
will be devoted more to Benton
county than to Corvallis. " The
mottos and legends displayed will
strenuously emphazie old Benton,
and it is the purpose as a result to
draw as heavily as possible from
Benton' s population to help carry
outthe plan. Information from
the country is that every locality
and nearly every family will send
a delegation to jo'n in the trip.
The arrangements for the rate
of fare are great. The charge for
the round trip, returning the same
evening is only $2. . On a $2.60
ticket, a person can go down on the
special excursion train in the morn
ing and return at any time within
seven days. That is the cheapest,
arrangement for a round trip ticket
ever made from Corvallis to Port
land with so long a period to stay.
The excursion train will leave Cor
vallis about six o'clock next Thurs
day morning. The hour for. the
return by the same train . in the
evening has been fixed at 7 o'clock.

A MIDNIGHT CHASE.
Officer Failed to Overhaul arid Jail
his Quarry But Hade the Vil
It happened recently, about mid
night. Officer Osburn, making his
usual rounds, paused a moment
near the Woodcock residence. To
his astonishment, a man emerged
from the cover of vines near a
window aad darted away. Ot course
the officer gave instant pursuit.
The course, lay around the Burnett
corner and thence westward and
southward, both men. going like
quarter horses, The officer in oth
er days had a good stride and was
able te go some, and he started out
with high hop-s of capturing the
The chase took a diagonal course
through the school house lots.
There was ploughed ground there, ;
and it worried both runners. It
did much to wind the officer, while
the fugitive sped on at a pace too
hot for any ordinary trail. " It was
so hot in fact, that when he came
to the deep ditch north across the
street from the Farra residence,
that he saw the depression too late.
He went down like a shot but was
up again like a flash. Across the
street at the Farra curbing there is
a barbed wire, He ran"intoit, and
went down on the stone pavement
with a dull sickening thud. Student
von der Hellen was passing down
the street at a distance of fifty yards
or more and saw the fall into the
ditch. "Pretty work; pretty work"
he shouted oblivious to the fact
that far astern a man-of-war
with all sails set and jib boom and
spanker flying was bearing down
hard on the speeding craft.
There was a quick rise after the
fall on the pavement, and a quick
dash around the corner and a final
disappearance in the darkness. The
officer, in spite of the double fall of
the fugitive was distanced, and bad
to give up the chase. Subsequent
developments seem to indicate that
a cherry tree in the Woodcock
yard was the only thing on which
the marauding and strange visitor
had designs. The story is that his
companion, who . was actually in
the tree when the other fled, got
home without bruises from a fall in
a ditch, and had no chase over
plowed gror.nd arid no experience
with a barbed wire and a stone
payement. The cherries on that
tree- are said to be awfully7 good. ":
