At the meeting next week of
the county court the question of di
viding school district number 16,
which joins the Corvallis district on
the south is to be considered. The
court in conjunction with the coun
ty superintendent constitutes the
Boundary Board for adjudication
of such matters. The division is
asked for by the residents of Ki
ger's island, who desire to be con
stituted a separate district on ac
count of the stream which divides
them from the mainland and makes
it difficult for children on the island
to reach the present school house.
It is also urged by the Islanders
that they have twicers many chil
dren of school age as are in the re
mainder of the present district.
W. C. Hawley of Willamette
University, who is one of the three
candidates for the republican nom
ination for congress in this district,
. left today after a day's visit in Ben
ton. His business was strictly po
litical, and the report is that he
found things very satisfactory here
about. He was born in Benton
county; and resided here until he
went to Salem to attend Willamette
University. After graduation there
he studied law and received the
degree of "L. L,. D." from his "al
ma mater. Before he entered upon
the practice of his profession he
was called to a professorship and
then to the presidency of the Uni
versity, with which he is still iden
tified. It has been said of him that
he is not politician enough to be
sent to congress, but this year hap
pens to find voters hunting for
something other than politicians
for congressional timber.

Kentucky. At the age of 19 year3,

"The Club's" sign has been
hauled down. The ' ceremony was
performed by Constable Wells. In
the silence and serenity of Wednes
day morning he did the job. No
vulgar assembly or curious rabble
looked on. If any tears were shed,
they were by the constable himself,
for the birds twittered and sang in
the surrounding trees, and they
were the only witnesses to the sad
and sorrowful proceeding. The
sign was an affair of considerable
dimensions. Besides the legend,.
"Corvallis Social and Athletic
Club," it bore the significant words
"Members admitted only" and then
went on to give a proper warning
to trespassers. Neatly and care
fully folded, it now rests snugly on
a shelf at the sheriff's office, a relic
of a plan to do by subterfuge and
shamble, something that the law
prohibited, that juries condemned,
that courts censured and that the
people voted should not be.

FIGHTING THE SCALE.
Immense Demand for Spray Bulletins
Spraying Outfits Behind With
The movement for saving Benton
orchards is not abated. A com
mercial spraying outfit has been
organ'zed in Kings Valley. . It is
under the management of J. E.
Watson, who consulted Prof. Cord
ley as to methods and appliances a
few days ago. The two or three
commercial outfits operating in
town have not yet finished up Cor
vallis, and have many orders ahead
keeping them busy whenever the
weather is propitious. Farmers io
the county continue to consult Prof.
Cordley by pbone and otherwise
relative to the best plan of proced
ure. No less than 500 bulletins on
spraying have been sent out within
the past week in response to re
quests. A big extra edition of
them printed because of the spray
ing movement in Willamette will
soon lie exhausted by the demand.
The incident shows the widespread
interest in the plan for redeeming
the trees and fruits from diseases
The expense of spraying is not
nearly as heavy as some suppose.
The cost to the farmer who does his
own spraying is only about two
cents per tree for a single applica
tion, that is, of course, where there
is a considerable number of trees.
The cost, even if applied by hired
labor and hired appliances ought not
to cost more than six cents per tree,
according to the statement of Prof.
Cordley. However, most farmers
are willing to pay more than this In
order to save the botheration, es
pecially when commercial outfits
An idea of value to every tree
owner is that just now it is easy and
convenient to get spraying done.
The San Jose scale will ultimately
kill every tree it attacks, if no rem
edy be applied. That means that
spraying must be done or the tree
will die, or the inspector will order
it destroyed. All infected trees can
be easier saved now than later on
when the disease is more violent,
all of which means, that now is the
time to spray.
Death of Mrs. McFeron at the Cathey
Home The Funeral.
After a lingering illness with
cancer of the stomach, Mrs. Han

her daughter, Mrs. B. A. Cathey,

o'clock today; after which the re
mains were taken to Halsey where
the funeral occurred, Rev. Skid-
more conducting the service. . In
terment was in the Brownsville
cemetery, beside the late husband
of th deceased, Judge Andrew Mc
Feron. Mrs. McFeron for over 30 years
res'ded in Linn county, making
her home at Halsey, Albany and

of ex-Sheriff McFeron of Linn,
now of Portland, and was widely
known and respected as a lady of

Five Hundred 'Have' Paid Taxes-
Fifteen Thousand Dollars
, . .... . Collected.
Sheriff Burnett is doing a swift
business in the collection of taxes,
Five hundred people have already
taken out their receipts. It is es
timated tbat an additional 1,100
will pay within the next ten days
About 1,600 is the number that us
ually pay in time to get the rebate.
The last day for rebate will be
March 15th. This means that
there will be a mighty rush of busi
ness at the sheriffs counter until
the 15th inst.
Sheriff Burnett's plan of sending
lists of taxpayers and the amount
of their taxes to persons in. the var
ious precincts is proving to be a
matter of extreme convenience.
That it is thoroughly appreciated
by the taxpayers is showu by the
way in which they make use of the
lists. Every mail brings a shower
of letters to the sheriff, containing
checks or postoffice orders to cover
the amount of the writer's taxes.
This saves the taxpayer a trip to
the sheriff's office at a time when
traveling is not the easiest in : the
world and makes a light matter out
of what would otherwise be a con
siderable task. It is painstaking,
thoughtful methods like these that
have made Sheriff Burnett noted
all over Oregon as about the best
sheriff in the state.
The total amount of taxes paid
up to this forenoon was $14,344.51.
It is nearly as much as was paid on
the same day last year, though last
year the roll was received on the
26th of January, while this year.it
did not become available for tax
collecting until February 12th.
As everybody knows, three per j
cent rebate, is allowed on all taxes
paid on or before March 15th. Af-!
ter that date, no rebate is allowed.
Taxes become delinquent on the
first Monday in April. If.half his
tax is not paid by that time, a pen
alty of 10 per cent and 12 per cent
interest until date of payment, is
charged. If half is paid by that
time, the taxpayer has until the first
Monday in October to pay the bal
ance. For Sale Spray Pump, manufac
