There may yet be coal mines
in Benton county. From Charles
Henderson of Blodgett, a specimen
of coal has been received by the
real estate firm of Robinson & Ste
venson. The specimen was taken
from the well of A. 1,. Richardson,
of Blodgett, 20 feet below the sur
face of the earth. The thickness of
the sample shows the vein to be
about two inches thick, and there is
slate both above and below the
vein. Parties familiar with coal,
state that the veins in the sample
indicate that there are other veins
of the ore nearby.

practice in Oregon. Holgate has

prising merchant in Corvallis, had
offered a fine college pillow to the
first Farmer who would make a
touchdown against Oregon. - The
professor thought that the pillow
would still be seen in the aforesaid
Kline's window after the game.
It would be a fitting emblem, and
should have "at rest" worked in
the cover after the game."

From Benton County to Defiance, Ohio
Carload Goes Nex Week.
A plan is afoot for the shipment
of a carload of apples from Benton
county to Defiance, Ohio. Henry
Mangas, who recently returned
to Corvallis from a visit there, says
the markets are bare of apples, and
none is to be had. He is arrang
ing to secure enough lor a carload,
if possible, and to forward them by
refrigerator car to - friends of his at
Defiance, who have requested him
to supply them with Oregon apples.
He is offering 75 cents per bushel
for first class apples, and it costs
about 90 cents to ship them. With
$1.65 per bushel as the cost
to dealers at Defiance, it may
be seen that fruit is dear to the
Ohioans, this season.
Incidentally Mr. Mangas will al
so send in the car, about 3,000
pounds of Benton county dried
prunes to be sold at retail in his old

One Dollar Saved Represents Ten
The average man does not save to exceed
ten per cent, of his 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 few 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.
