A SPLENDID BEGINNING.
Opening Exercises at th&H. E. Church
Attract Immense Throngs The
The Methodist Episcopal church
of Corvallis re-opened its doors to
the public Sunday morning. ; Like
an old friend arrayed in new appar
el the edifice was greeted warmly
by all, and was by all inspected and
pronounced improved - greatly in
appearance. In spite or the larger
seating capacity afforded by the re
modeling, there was not room to ac
commodate the people that attend
ed both morning and evening serv
ices, it beine necessaty in the ev
ening to throw open the annex
The morning sermon was by Dr.
Rader, editor of the Pacific Chris-
tion Advocate, and his theme dealt
with the blessing that comes to the
peacemaker. ' The reason, he said,
that we are not all peace makers, is
because, we ourselves are. not right
with God; and therefore feel a nat
ural timidity in approaching others
on religious subjects," lest we be
abashed by reference to our own
1 shortcomings. Get right with God
first, said the speaker, and then go
out and help to right others, to the
end that wars shall cease, the heav
eUshall reien here and now, and
that'od's will shall be worked out
on eartl as He, would have it be,

ality that jeoables &3 to sway his

woven with deeper thoughts was a
flow of humor that "delighted the,
entire audience The discourse
has been widely commended.
No less entertaining, although in
a different manner and with an en
tirely different trend of thought,
was the address in the evening by
Dr. Rowland, presiding elder of
this district. His theme was bas
ed on the statement of Christ, "I
am the Way.-tbe Truth and the
IvighfT" Dr. Rowland's interpre
tation of this statement is. that
there is but one way, and that it is
therefore a truthful way and leads
unto light. - This way, of course,
is through the sacrifice . made . by
the Savior for a world that had seen
too late, its " mistake in choosing
death instead of life, when "the
choice was offered the first man and
woman in the " Garden of Eden.
This way to life and troth is still,
open, said Dr. Rowland, to all who
'wbuld accept it and turn from " sin
into paths of rectitude : Lr. .Row
land has an excellent command of
language, arid his iddress abound
ed in bodily-sketched word pictures
of unusual beauty.

IN HIS MEMORY.
A Beautiful Window in the Renewed
' Methodist Church Building.
A feature of - the new improve
ments to the church edifice of the
Methodist congregation is a mem
orial window commemorative of
birth and death of the late E. M.
Belknap. It is a duplicate of the
Stewart window on the east end of
the building, and is located in the
south end oLthe new addition to
the structure. It is made of what
is known as bevel plate glass, lead
ed, and is very handsome. Its
cost was about $175, and it is the
contribution of the widow and chil
dren of the deceased. The inscrip
tion is burned into the glass in such
a way that it can be seen from the
inside of the building, but not from
the outside. It consists of the name
date of birth and date of the death
of Mr. Belknap. .
- Mr. Belknap was born June 26,
1849, and died in Corvalli March
28. 1894.- He came to Corvallis in
1880, and yith his late brother.
Stephen Belknap and John Kitsofi.
established the Corvallis Foundry
& Iron works with which he was
connected to the time of his death.
He was a leading spirit in the Cor
vallis fire department, and a citizen
of high character, The widow, to
whom he was married about 1882,
a daughter and two sons are surviv
ing members of the family.

College of Philomath Burned to the
..... - .
Ground Monday Afternoon.
The building that for the past ten
years has housed the College of
Philomath,' is in ashes. It caught
fire and "was burned to the ground
Monday afternoon. Flames were
discovered in the roof shortly after
two o'clock, and within a few min
utes, the fire had spread so that en
veloped the whole structure. The
entire population of Philomath
gathered about the building, but af
ter the chairs and piano had been
removed, nothing further could be
done to save property. Philomath
is entirely without means of fire
protection, having no water supply
beyond that in the wells in the
dooryards of Philomath homes. As
the people stood watching the
flames that licked up wall, window
door and other parts of the college
building, reflecting the while " that
at any moment any home or other
building in the town might go in
the same way with no water supply
to stay the flames, they had an ob
ject lesson in the importance and ad
vantage of the Corvallis mountain
water system, not only to CorvFl
lisites, but to Philomathites as well
From the first it was- apparent
that the building was doomed, A
strong wind was blowing from the
north, and it helped to fan the
flames. After removal of the fur
niture and piano, attention was di
rected to the protection of adjacent
buildings, which flying shingles and
sparks threatened to set on fire. By
three o clock, the entire structure
including the auditorium and class
rooms was a smouldering mass of
ruins. The loss is $2,500. It is
partly covered by insurance but the
figure was not learned.
The building was erected in the
spring and summer of 1893, to re
place a former structure that, like
its successor, was destroyed by fire,
the fire having occurred during the
winter of 1892-3. It is not yet
known what effect the destruction
of the building will have upon the
future of the College of Philomath,
the attendance of which is not
The president of the institution
is Stanley Watkins.
The fire is the most important
that has occurred in Philomath in
about eight years. In the latter
part of the nineties the store build
ing of J. E. Henkle, occupied by
W. Ingle with a stock of general
merchandise was totally destroyed
OVER SIX HUNDRED.
At OAC now Attendance Increased
Fourteen y.t cent.
1 here is an increase ot 14 per
cent in the attendance at OAC this
year. The 600 mark was passed
last weekj the , number being 75
more than on the .. same ' date last
year? At last account, the figures
were about 625," including 20 stud
ents in the musical department.
I he increase is 75 as against an in
crease 01 100 last year on the same
date over the. preceding year.'The
growth in attendance, during the
past three years or more in fact
seems to be from 10 to is per cent,
and to be a healthful and natura
increase. As it looks now, the en
rollment should be easily 800 dur
ing the year.- - j

The insurance on the college
building destroyed by fire in Philo
math Monday afternoon, was ,$1,
400. There was also an insurance
of $300 on the piano and furniture
but the latter were saved. v ,
