came to grief at Oregon City. He
paid, a neavy nne, alter serving a

his surveying job on account of an
injury sustained in a fall while at
work. The party was 30 , miles

ankle, which made continuation of
his duties in running one of the in

his way by easy stages to . Gates,
and reached Corvallis by train
Tuesday night. His injury will
not interfere with his efficiencv on
the football field this fall. . "

present low price of Cascara or
chittim bark -continue, there is lit
tle doubt but that it will be used
extensively for a spray for hop i
vines to prevent the ravages of hop j
lice. O wners of yards in the lower
valley who have experimented with '
it this year, say it is far more effic
ient for destroying the lice than the
quassia chip3 now used almost uni
versally. The quassia chips cost
from five to seven cents a pound
and often go higher. The present
price of chittim bark is 3 1-2 cents
a pound, so that from the stand
point of economy there is much to
be said in its favor, if its efficiency
proves all that is claimed for it. .
