The County board of road
viewers, consisting of WV D. Bar
clay, John Harris and Surveyor
Jones, viewed a proposed r jad on
Ingram Island last week. The
forming of a gravel bar in the river
caused the removal of the ferry site
to a spot half a mile below, and
rendered approach from the exist
ing road impossible. The plan is
to construct a road to connect, and
it is understood that, after viewing,
the board made a favorable report.
The new football rules have
been agreed to, and the principal
change is that 10 yards instead of
five must be made -in three downs.
Failure to gain 3ardage "will result,
the critics think,? in more punting
and a more open game. The effect
will be to make punters in demand
and incidentally ;td cause them to be
' a very-much greater- factor in the
game.- There, are to be -more offic
ials, and severer penalties for un
necessary roughness. The changes
are designed to remove the features
to which so much objection has

signed his pastorate of the Presby
terian church at Independence, and
the statement is that, on account of
his health, he will retire from regu

only at such "times as his energies
will permit. His relations with
the Independence congregation
were most amicable, 90 accessions
having been made to the church
during his five years' pastorate.
He is to make his home at Inde

Las been in the Presbyterian minis
try for 35 years. Before that he
was 18 years professor of Mathe
matics in the University of Minne

Selling now in Corvallis at About

Corvallisites - are paying two!
and a half cents apiece for apples
now and are smacking their lips
over the fruit. The apples go at
the same price as lemons, bananas
and some oranges, which is a start
ling condition considering that the
Willamette valley ought to be the
world's apple orchard" They cost
the consumer about $3 a box, and
at tbese swell prices many boxes
hav; been sold. r ,
The apples the town is now buy
ing are not even grown in Willam-.
ette at all, but are imported from
Hood River, and they cost $2.50 a
box in Portland, $2.65 per box liid
down in Corvallis. They are of
various varieties, including Yellow
Newtown Pippin and Ben Davis.
In a college hill orchard last sea
son, by spraying, 98 per cent of the
apple crop was redeemed from Cod
ling moth. With apples now sell

per dozen, what an appeal the con
dition is to farmers to clean up the
old orchards and bring them into
bearing healthy, wholesome fruit.
Or Life-Long Republicans will
Bolt What a Polk County
There is one proposition with ref-
ence to Statement Number 1 that J
cannot be dodged or escaped, and
that is, that candidates who don't'
sign will lose the support of many
a voter who wants direct vote for,'
United States senators. Republic
ans down in Polk county are going
to scratch the legislature candidate
who doesn't sign, and they are-going
to do it in Benton, if any of
them have the temerity not to sign.
The Independence Westside Enter
prise is authority for the statement
as to the conditions in Polk, and it
is public comment as to the situa
tion in Benton. In its last issue
the Westside Enterprise, Walter
Lyon's paper, says:
"The Westside Enterprise speaks
a trutn ana sounas a warning in
time that safety for any republican
candidate lies in his signing the
pledge to observe the wish of the
people as expressed at the polls in
j the election of United States sena
I tor. Numbers of " lite-long repub
lieans in Polk county have express
ed the determination to support no
candidate, regardless of politics,
who does not agree to support the
people's choice for United States
senator. They have taken part in
placing the present' law on the
statute books. This paper is on
good terms with all the candidates
and has no preference personally
and it asks them for the party's
sake, to be considerate of the feel
ings of the rank and file in the mat
ter of the election of United States

A minister at the conclusion of
one of his sermons said: "Let those
in. the house who are paying their
honest debts stand up.
Every man, .1 woman and child,
with one exception stood up.
After seating them, the minister
said, "Now, every man not paying
his debts stand, up."
The exception noted, a careworn,
hungry-looking individual, clad in
his last summer's suit slowly arose
to his ieet.

the minister, "that you are the only
