The Evening Tribune, pub

the following to say about Harold
Belt, a former Corvallisite and OAC
student: "Further proof of Belt's
efficiency was given at the Sunday
matinee, when that estimable pitch
er trimmed the inland crew and
passed them the unlucky end of a
thirteen inning affair. The good
or bad luck attached to a baker's
dozen depends upon the point of
,vlew, and Mr. Belt seems to possess
the optimistic temperament that re
flects the sunny side of the thirteen
hoodoo. This is his second thirteen-
inning victory on the local
field, the first being taken from Bel
lingham but a short time ago. In
that instance Belt shut out the en

judgment on the part of Mr. Irby,
Spokane was allowed the consola

his assistants became exceedingly

spread in every direction on the Mc

day afternoon. It swept over the

threatened for a time to grow bc

rested, but not until $ 100 worth cf

BIG ALFALFA YIELD
Six and a Half Tons of Hay per Acre
A College Farm Crop.
Alfalfa on the College farm made
a yield of green feed this season
that measured in cured weight
would have made six and one-half
tons of hay per acre. It is a yield
strikingly at , variance with the
grain crop, because it is fifty per
c:nt larger than any former crop,
all in spite of bugs and the drouth
conditions of the late season. It
inspires wonder that more farmers
do not grow alfalfa, since this col
lege alfalfa crop was produced on
land no better than ' the ordinary
wheat land, without a nickel's
worth of artificial fertilizer, and un
der ciicumstances applicable . on
nearly any wheat farm in the Wil
The two acres yielded four cut
tings of alfalfa, that all told aggre
gated 82,775 pounds of green feed.
The highest yield in - any former
year since the field was seeded to
alfalfa was 55,744 pounds of green
feed, equivelent to nine and one
fourth tons of hay for the two
acres. The average yield per sere
during the four years that the field
has been cropped is four and a half
tons of hay per acre. The yield in
green feed during the four years
has been as follows: 1902, 27,142
pounds; 1903, 55,744; 1904,50,970;
1905, 82,775. The field was cut
during the season of 1905 on the
following dates, April 19th, when
the yield was 40,080 pounds; May
31st, 22.030; July i4thi 10,525;
August 25th, 10,140.

To the Public:
It has been falsely reported by
interested parties that, when I have
been unable to make a sale, I have
been in the habit of running home
seekers out of the country. I de
sire to say that all such reports are
unqualifiedly false and without
foundation. I have lived in Ben
ton county through a period of
more than 30 years, and have done
an humble part in aiding to upbuild
it. I am not the man to seek to
tear down the community that I
have made my home , through so
many years. The statement that I
ran Mr. Brandt out of the country
is its own denial as a few weeks
will prove. I sold him a farm with
in a few miles of Corvallis, and as
soon as he can close up his inter
ests in Iowa he-will be out with his
family to occupy it.
