AT THE FAIA.
On Corvallis Day Fifteen Hundred
L. There What PortlandPapers Say.
Nearly all Corvallis journeyed to
the Fair Thursday. It took two
special trains to carry the people.
In the first section there were i4
coachas and a baggage car. All were
filled. In the feoond section, three
coaches were filled with Cirvallis
ites. The other coaches were for
the psople of Independence who al
so celebrated on the same day. The
number of Indeuendence people
that went was 199. With what
went down on the special, an i tboee
already there, the estimate is that
1,500 Corvallisites were oq tbe
grounds during the day.
Toose who made the trip are elo
quent of what transpired. The fol
lowing from the Portland Journal
give the detail of what happtnud
in. Portland :

the Agricultural College at Corval
lis, In tbe procession in which more
tbai two Ihovmt'd people from B-n-ton
end Polk counties march'd
from Foufth and Yamhill streets to
the exposition grounds.
This is Corvallis and' Independ
ence day at the grounds, and anoth
er record-breaking attendance is
expected when the story of the turn
stiles is told to night. The npeciul
trains cme in on the west side line
of the Southern Pacific, arrivicg
between 10 and 11 o'clock. Mott
of the regiment of cadets from the
college came, too, under Command
er Quinlan, lieutenant of the Unit
ed States Fifth regiment of cavalry.
In line were 390 men in uniform.
There would have been more- had
not some of the students left last
week for home, when sshool closed.
The banner was not a copy of
anything ever made before. It was
the longtst "ever." There were
devices printed on it that told cf
the productiveness of Ben ten coun
ty, ita wouderful opportunities and
the prosperity of its people. Some
of the mottoes were:
"Gold nuggets grow cn hop vines
in Benton county."
"No booze in Benton county."
"Corvallis is the place where Ad
am ate the apple."
"Fifty new homeB built in Cjr
vallis this year and 50 more under
"No race suicide in Benton coun
ty." "Lowest tax rate in the state lev
ied in Benton county."

"Homer Davenport isn't the only

and obeyed the commands of iheii
officers quite as well as do veterans
of a war. The full complement of
the regiment is 480 men and, -when
the college is in session, the quota
is kept filled.
it was estimated that not Icfs
than 2,500, perhaps 3,000, persons
from Benton and Polk counties are
m rortland today. Many came
yesterdav, and when added to those
who arrived this morning made
tlo?e duplicate in point of numbers
of the crowd that was here yeeter
day for Salem day.
The cadets from Corvallis arrived
At the fair grounds shortly before 1
o'clock and were met at the Twen
ty-eightn street entrance by an ex
position band and escorted to the
auditorium, where special exercises
were held. J. Fred Yates, chair
man of the Lewis ond Clark com
mittee of Corvallis, presided and
the Oregon Agricultural band play
ed the opening selection. H. E.
Dosch made the address of Welcome
on behalf of the fair management
and responses were made by Mayor
A. J. Johnson of Corvallis aed Rev.
Mr. Elair of Independence. Dr.
Withycombe of the State Universi
ty, W. B. Butler of Monmouth and
W. S. McFadden of Corvallis aio
spoke. After the exercises the wo
men of Benton county served light
refreshments and the cadets went
into camp on the riv-r front, where
they will remain for several days.
- After declaring that the Corvallis
demonstration far exceeded that t-f
Salem, the Oregonian says:
One of the banners was several
hundred feet in length, and it is
said to be the largest streamer ever
in Portland. It required 55 cadets
of the Oregon Agricultural College
to carry it. When the cadets were
crossing the bridge of All Nations
at the Exposition grounds the
streamer extended nearly a third
of the length of the structure. The
immense banner, wVich was com
posed of red acd white cloth adorn
ed with yellow ribbons from the
j staff? that supported t, enumerated
the wonderful advantages of Cor
vallis. "Let it rain, Corvallis is
dry"; "Crops never fail in Benton
county"; "Lowest tax rate in Ore
gon"; "No potato or chinch bugs,
ody ; grasshoppers for fish bait,"
"Dollars" grow on sbtep in
B-iriton county,'" and "Every other
family in Corvallis has a tele
phone," were eeveial of the inscrip
tions on tbe mammoth streamer.
So Ancient Tnat Their Use
tloned In tbe Bible.
The custom of carrying flags or stand
ards In battle dates back at least to
1490 B. C. We find in Numbers ii, 2,
that "every man of the children of
Israel shall pitch by his own standard
with the ensign of his father's house."
Each standard of the twelve tribes thus
distinguished was supposed to have
been of a color to correspond with the
stone in Aaron's breastplate which
bore the name of that tribe. Under the
generic name banner are included many
species, such as standard, ensign, pen
non, flag, etc. These have been used
from earliest times'and in all countries
to direct movements of troops.
The earliest Roman standard was
a bundle of straw fixed to the top of
a spear. This was succeeded by fig
ures of animals, such as the horse and
the boar, which soon gave place to the
eagle, the chief Roman ensign, after
ward assumed by the German' and
French emperors. By every warlike
people the banner has been regarded
as an emblem of national honor, in de
fense of which each soldier was at all
times ready to die, while banners and
flags taken from the enemy have al
ways been special trophies of victory
to which places of honor in public
buildings have been assigned.
BOOTS AND SPURS.
Quaint Account of Hungarian Cav-
airy In Olden Day.
A contemporary manuscript account
of the diet of Ratisbon, held in 1630 by
the Emperor Ferdinand IL on the oc
casion of the landing of Gustavus
Adolphus of Sweden In Germany, men
tions as a remarkable fact that the
Hungarian cavalry who rode through
the streets to the ceremonial wore their
spurs on their boot soles.
It is difficult to credit that these
spurs were fixed on the flat of the boot,
for thus shod the horsemen could nei
ther walk nor stand, especially when
the large size of the spurs worn at the
period is considered. Probably the
writer intended to Indicate that In
stead of being fastened to the heel in
the usual fashion they were made to
project from the fore part of the mill
tary boot, which is a portion of the
Frederick von Raumer, who quotes
this in his "History of the Sixteenth
and Seventeenth Centuries, Illustrated
by Original Documents," passes the
matter over without comment. The
same manuscript adds that the Hunga
rian horses had their manes, tails and
feet painted red.
Ancient Drinking Guilds.
It is gravely said by an authority
that the Dutch guilds, the most ancient
of workingmen's organizations, had
their origin in the drinking guilds,
which, although they did not, as in the
case of the Greeks and Romans, exalt
drink to the rank of a deity, made it a
kind of civic dignitary. These drink
guilds and drink brethren existed from
the earliest times until the latter part
of the sixteenth century, when- then-
excesses led to their suppression. It Is
held that inen who worked together
drank together and thus formed the
primitive club which developed into the
guild. Notes and Queries.
Hose of Olden Time.
In the very long ago hose were not
stockings as now worn, but made long
and were often drawn up even to the
waist, and, oddly enough, had pockets
in their sides. We read, moreover, that
in the time of the Tudors and Stuarts
they were of great variety, both of
material and color, and for such as
could command the luxury were rich
ly trimmed and costly; they were often
called "nether stocks."
"Don't be afraid of making me angry
by telling me your candid opinion of
my verses, old fellow. Criticism doesn't
make any difference with me."
"I know that, my dear boy, but the
trouble is that it doesn't make any
difference with your verses either."
