And Call for Bids for Material The
N ew Mountain Water Survey.
At a meeting Monday night, the
water board took action for the
floating of $75,000 in water bonds,
ordered the issuance of an adver
tisement for bids for material to
be used in constructing the plant,
heard the report of Engineer Mil
ler with reference to the new sur
vey, and discussed various phases
of the situation. It is figured that
30 days will be required in getting
bids for the bonds. It is desired
that information as to the issue shall
be placed before Eastern investors
to the end that the best possible
bonds may be secured. The inter
est rate has been fixed at four per
cent. Some favored a slightly
higher rate, but some sales of sim
ilar bonds as published in a late
copy of a banking paper indicated
the sale of many securities on a four
per cent basis, and it seemed un
wise to propose a higher rate under
the circumstances. The date on
which the bids will be opened has
not been set.
The report of Engineer Miller on
the new survey shows a working
margin of about $5,000 between es
timated cost of the works and the
limit of money provided for in the
the bond issue, It will not be as
large a margin as is desirable, con
sidering the possibility of litigation,
but the board has determined to
take the chances, at least to the
extent of selling bonds and call
ing for bids for material. The new
survey taps Rock Creek 600 feet
above the point where the Peak
trail crosses the strerm. It passes
close to the Gellatly school house,
goes through the Gellatly place,
the Dentler place, follows the coun
ty road for nearly a mile, passes
through Main street ' Philomath as
far as the railroad depot and then
follows the line of the C. & E.
.-traight into Corvallis, save the
diversion for the reservoir on Os
burn hill. A large part of the pipe
line will be 12 inch, and there is
in all only 800 feet of steel pipe
lequired via the new route, the
former estimate requiring 13,000
feet. The present volume of wat
tr at the intake is 1,800,000 gallons
. enough for Corvallis when a city
many times her present size. It is
estimated that not more than two
weeks will be required to get bids
Corvallis Dwelling House Billy In
The Emil Liebe dwelling house,
better known to the public as the
Berlin house on College Hill was
burned to the ground in the early
hours of Saturday morning. The
blaze was discovered shortly before
three o'clock by Prof. Crawford
who lives a block to the East
ward. ' He happened to be astir at
the time, and the light attracted
his attention. The Denman house
stood between him and the burning
building, but from the latter a huge
column of flame shown far above
the Denman root. . le turned in
the alarm with his Independent
phone and within scarcely a minute
from the time he saw the blaze the
fire bell was ringing. There is,
however, no fire protection in the
neighborhood, and the firemen
could do nothing tc arrest the
flames. The two chemicals were
run out to the scene for use
in saving other buildings if neces
sary, but there was no wind, and
acccrdingly but little danger of oth
er fires. A large crowd of people
congregated on the grounds and
watched the structure through the
process of being reduced to ashes,
Most of those who remarked on the
subject agreed that it would be a
fortunate day for a large portion of
Corvallis from the standpoint of fire
protection alone when the new wat
er system shall have been installed.
It looked hard to stand by and see
a building burn, with not a drop of
water to turn on it, or on other
property in the neighborhood that
might have been lighted by the
flying sparks. The occasion called
to the minds of many the curious
mission of the late little Billie In
As stated, the fire must have been
started about 2 .-30 o'clock in the
morning, an unseemly hour, The
house was not occupied, which fact
obviously reduces the danger of
fire to the minimum. It all looks
dangerously like incendiary, and
yet, perish the thought, and let us
all live in the belief that there is
no one witnin our gates who would
wantomly apply a midnight torch
to the property of a fellow being.
No one is able to say .. whether or
not the property was insured. The
building is estimated to have been

Neighbors Came From Far and Wide
to Bury Clyde Tharp The
The funeral of the late Clyde
Tharp, who was killed in a runa
way accident Friday, occurred at
Bellefountain Saturday afternoon.
The service was under the auspices
of the Grange, of which the deceas
ed was a member. The attendance
included everybody tin the neigh
borhood as well a9 relatives and
friends of the family from Corvallis
and elsewhere, and was verv large.
Addresses in harmony with the oc
casion were made by Rev. M. M.
Waltz, Ed Belknap and Mrs. Ed
Belknap. Mrs. Belknap was a for
mer teacher of the dead young man,
and her tribute to his life and mem
ory was tervent and eloquent. The
members of the family were pros
trated by the tregady. The moth r
fainted at the grave, and was not
restored to consciousness until nine
o'clock in the evening, six hours
'Later accounts of the accident
differ but little from that given in
Saturday's Times. With others,
Clyde Tharp was hauling gravel on
the roads, and with his wagon
heavily loadd was passing down
the hill at the Pern Starr place.
Marks on it seem to indicate that
the brake block slipped to the side
of the wheel instead of pressing
it from the front. The wagon
rushed on to the horses, and the
driver was unable to hold them.
After passing over a bench in the
hill the outfit went out of the view
of those who watched from above.
A few moments later the horses,
detached from the wagon and run
ning at full speed, appeared below.
At the bottom of the hill the wreck
of the wagon, and the young man,
frightfully injured, were found.
The victim was still breathing, but
lite lasted only a few minutes.- He
was lying on his back, and across
his breast was one of the boards of
his gravel bed, and on the board
and the prostrate form of the man a
heavy weight of gravel. Blood
was gushing, the flow of which was
only staunched by death.
The young man bore a high rep
utation in the community'. He was
the only son of Mr. and Mrs. Al
Tharp, and was 25 years of age.

One Dollar Savwd Represents Ten
The average man does not save to exceed
ten per cent, of Jus earnings. He must spend
nine dollars in living expenses for every
dollar saved. That being the case he can
not be too careful about unnecessary ex
penses. Very often a tew cents properly in
vested, like buying seeds for his garden, will
save several dollars outlay later on. It is
the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It 'costs
but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house
often saves a doctor s bill of several dollars.
