PRETTY HOME WEDDING.
Benton Young People Join Fortunes :
The ' marriage - of, Howard L.
Wagner of Corvallis to Miss Fran-,
ces E.. Irwin occurred at the home
of the bride, south of . Corvallis, at
7.30 Wednesday evening. ' The
ceremony was performed by Rev.
T. C. Hurd ot the United Evangel
ical church, in the presence of
about 20 guests, principally - rela
tives of the interested parties. The
young people stood under an arch
of Oregon grape, the remainder of
the rooms being decorated . in fes
toons of ivy. The bride was attir-
ed in white, j and looked ', most at
tractive.1 She is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Richard Irwin, one of
iienton s best known families, and
Mr. Wagner is the ,.son of Mr and
Mrs. William Wagner, of Corvallis.

To Farmers in few Years to LBaild
Macadam Roads Figures to
. Prove it. ,
One of the interesting addresses
of the Good Roads convention was
by Secretary H. B. Thielsen. He
is a civil engineer , and declares
that enough money can be saved to
farmers in a few years to pay for
macadam roads, and he cites fig
ures to prove it. Here is his , ad
dress: ' '
"When a well managed railway
which is our finest type of road,
operated under the most perfect and
scientific control, finds itself unable
to handle the business offered, eith
er by reason of the volume being
too great or the cost of handling
being in excess of the . income de
rived therefrom, it immediately
seeks a remedy. The engineers
are called upon to estimate the cost
of increasing capacity or reducing
cost of transportation.' The desired
results are to be arrived at by re
ducing grades and eliminating cur
ves, by improving the road bed, or
by laying heavier rails and strength
ening bridges, making it possible to
use heavier motive power thereby
increasing the size of train loads
and decreasing cost of transporta
tion. "If the physical conditions
are such that the required changes
can be made at an estimated cost
which will justify the expenditure,
the improvement is ordered. If
not,, some other solution is found.
Perhaps some combination is made
with competing lines whereby com
petition is throttled and rates in
creased, or a new line is construct
ed affording more favorable con
ditions. Mechanical skill has in
creased thesize of locomotives until,
the giant of yesterday is a pigmy
beside the monster of today, while
the utmost skill of the constructing
engineer has been taxed to furnish
a smooth and solid line over which
the enormous freight and passenger
trains may be driven at terrific
speed, with such comparative safety
that the percentage of accidents is
less to those traveling by rail than
on the highways, and the passeng
er sleeps, eats, and reads in comfort
and safety while moving at the rate
of a mile or more per minute.
"Under the stress of the most in
tense competition, the cost of trans
porting freight by rail has steadily
decreased until today the average
cost on all the railways of gthe Un
ited States for all classes of freight
carried all distances, is less than
seven-eighths of one cent for each
mile a ton of freight is transported.
But while the highest demonstra
tive ability laboring harmoniously
with the most distinguished engin-
mg skill has thus raised 'the rail
road to a point of astonishing effi
ciency, until within the past half
dozen years the cost of handling
freight over the average wagon
road, remained about the same as
when the ; genius of Stephenson
evolved the incipient railway which
has developed so magnificently and
has relieved the highway from a
burden of an enormous tonnage,
"Even now, it; is only here and
there that a community or common
wealth Has awakened to the econ
omic value of better roads and has
nerved itself to the necessity of pay
ing for the same. As a sign of the
changing times, engineers, exper
ienced in highway construction,
are offered remunerative employ
ment in sucn communities, ana in
a veiy short time the same ability
which has determined for the rail-
, ways tne relative nnancial equiva
lent for such degree of curvature
eliminated, for each foot of ' grade
mile of distance
saved or fraction of a percent of
maximum ! grade lowered,' these
equivalents; varying with -the vol
ume of traffic, this same skill will
set out the financial equivalents for
the various forms of highway im
provement based upon the tonnage
carried over the - same, whenever it
shall be called upon to do so.
It is with a view of presenting
a few of the simpler principles
which will govern these problems,
that I have prepared this paper and
if it succeeds in calling the atten
tion of some of you to the necessity
of substituting a more correct rule
for determining the amount of mon
ey we should devote to road. , im-;
provement, for the rule of thumb
and guess whicn has heretotore
prevailed, I shall be amply repaid.
The most serious limitation to
the load that can -be drawn upon
the ordinary highway is due to the
character of the surface, which
upon then npaved road variesjjac
Cording to the season, Irom lair, to
impassible; but even in its best con
dition will not admit of the load
that is practicable upon the well
paved road at all seasons. . While
it is, as yet impossible to arrive at
exact cost of wagon transportation
under varying conditions, accord
ing to the best and most , reliable
figures obtainable, the average cost
of hauling commodities to market
