Prof. Cordley requests the
Times to give notice that it Is now
, time to begin the cannonade on
Codling moth. As soon as' the
blossoms are off the- tree the spray
should be applied. After ten days
: from the dropping of the blossoms
it begins to be too late for this par
ticular spraying, and one good
chance at the worms will be lost if
no spray is applied now. Arsenate
of lead is the proper solution to be
used, and it is to be obtained at all
. drug stores. Its cost is about one
. to one and a half cents per tree.
The annual senior excursion to

is assured all. People have sent
word from Monmouth, Philomath,
Albany and other places of their in
tention to participate in this big af
fair, and everyone should make an
effort to "take it in." " -

Editor Times: Through sour
columns I will endeavor ta give
my friends a 'short' sketch of my
trip from San Francisco to the
w The S S. Cootie, a craft of about
9,000 tons displacement, weighed
anchor at i:-i5p. m. Jan 10th,
and we passed out the Golden Gate
at about 3:50 p. m. For seven
days we were tossed about like a
ccrk on exceedingly rough seas.
During all this time I was doing
bunk fatigue not caring whether
the ship sunk or not and there
were otheis in the same boat as
myself. Capt. Finch stated that he
had followed the seas for ten years
and this was the roughest voyage
of his experience.
On Jan. 17th. on a bright, .clear
morning we dropped anchor in the
harbor of Honolulu, and I am sure
that I never before saw land that
looked so good to me. After being
inspected by the quarantine officer,
we were allowed to anchor at the
dock and go ashore. I found my
self in the most beautiful city that
I have ever visited. . -
SEEING HONOLTJtU SIGHTS.
Four of us who had become quite
well acquainted on the " trip pro
cured an automobile and spent sev
eral hours visiting various places
of interest in the city and . about
the island. , ,
The principal scenic point which
we visited was JNunanu Fall, six
miles from Honolulu, the scene of
the defeat of the Oaho army by the
victorious Emperor Kamehameha
I. Within the. city are two ex
tinct craters, Punchbowl and Dia
mond Head, while the sea beaches,
Darks and estates lying near were
From the summit of the Punch
bowl, 500 feet above the sea level,

city and vicinity can be obtained.
We also visited various other
places of interest. "
Hawaii's tropical foliage can be
but famtly pictured and all too im
perfectly described. - Let it suffice
to say that its floral display is sec
ond to non and tropical fruits of
all kinds are in abundance.
There are many beautiful and
imposing private and public build
ings. The executive building is
situated in a ten-acre park set with

avenue of palms.

On a suburban trolley car the
other day a man got on who was
badly under the influence of liquor.
He got a seat and made himself
quite offensive to an old lady who
sat near him. When the conduct
came around for. his fare this old
lady jumped up -and said: "Con
ductor, do you allow drunken peo
ple on this car?" "No, madam,"
replied the conductor, "but sit
down and nobody will notice you."
In the United Evangelical con
ference held ten days ago in Port
land, Rev. C. T. Hurd was return
ed to the Corvallis pastorate, and
Rev. Deck, also well known in
Corvallis, was returned to Salem
for another year. Facts brought
out in the conference show that the
church has had the largest net gain
the past year experienced for many
years, and there have been 350 con
versions during the past twelve
Physically, the Hawaiian race is
a magnificent one, and without
doubt the natives are the best re
presentatives of what may be called
the Pacific Islanders. The men are
large-limbed and tall; the women
straight and developing early in
life. I was told that they were pro
gressing very rapidly under Amer

boys stiil perform their old stunt
of diving for money which pas

convenience to the " traveling pub

time in visiting temples and palaces
about the city. From Nogo Yama
