After more than two weeks of
ahxietp, County Judge Watters has
tidings from an elder sister who
was in San Francisco and has been
missing since the earthquake. She
lived at 547 O'Farrell street. She
is a widow and was alone with her
14-year old, grandson. Everything
was lost by the fire and they trudg
ed the streets for two days and two
nights, finally finding refuge at the
Presidio emergency camp. County
judge watters in tne anxious
search for her passed through every
camp in the city, the one at which
she was a refugee, among them, but
failed to find her. He finally ad
vertised and her letter received here
yesterday was in answer to his ad'

It is understood that Merwin
McMaines, who is known to fame
as "Happy Hooligan," is shortly
to take his departure for Chicago,
wnere ne has been engaged to trav
el with a medicine show company
Happy's talent for the profession to
which he is shortly to devote him
self, was long since recognized and
but tor a combination of unfor
tunate circumstances which depriv
ed him of volition in matters per
taining to his own movements, he
would, ere this have occupied the
coveted position. But the delay
has not been without its compen
sating features. Happy has been
enabled to grow a greater profusion
of hair, to wear his sombrero with
more effective eclat, and to acquire
a poise of manner and movement
not common to the amateur. While
.Happy's distinctive garb has by
some been regarded as a fad on his
part, it should be stated that in af
fecting the dress of the plainsman
he has had in view the acquirement
of such traits as would better fit him
for, the business in which he ex
pected to engage. There are many
in Corvallis who earnestly hope for
Happy's future success.
There is to be a W. C. T. U.

ITS GREAT GROWTH.
The student body at the col
lege held a meeting Wednesday
and voted ten percent of next year's
student tax to be made available
for use in debate and oratorical en
terprises. For instance, it costs
$100 to bring the Pullman debating '
teanr-to.jQorvallis for the big debate I
tonight, and it is desirable to have
a fund ready to cover possible defic
its should any arise.
A county order for $600 was
drawn yesterday in favor of the Sari
Francisco relief committee of Cor
vallis. This is part of the sum
guaranteed for the first Benton
county shipment of supplies to the
stricken city. I
Claude I.' Lewis of Cornell
University has become horticultur

summer meeting of the board of re
gents last year, and President
Weatherford, President Gatch and
Regent Olwell were appointed a

of horticulture and botany.
Mrs. Nellie Callahan Smith

hotel at the time of the earthquake

who is a commercial traveler, was
in a distant part of the state at the
time. The day of the earthquake
she spent with her son in avoiding
the -names, escaping finally from
tne burning city to Oakland on
Thursday morning. She was much
prostrated by tne shock of her ex
The busiest places in the coun
try now are the hop yards. It is
the period for training and trim
ming the vines and a large amount
of labor is involved in the process.
On account of the scarcity of labor
ine men, it is mostly done this
vear bv bovs. eirls and women. It
is light work, and an intelligent boy
of a dozen summers can do it as
well as anybody. It requires only
patient, painstaking application
The vines are now but a few feet in
length Perhaps the largest force
of people is at the Ireland yard,
where there are a number of camps.
A good many Corvallis boys, girls
and women are employed there and
at other yards, most of whom make
the trip out in the morning and
back in the evening.

A ton of Butter a Day Now Business
for Current Year.
It is probable that the Kaupisch
creamery will do a business of $150
000 this year. It is undergoing a
development that promises within
a short time to make it the most
important enterprise in Benton
county. It paid out $80,000 for
butter fat 1. st year.' It is now
making more than a ton of butter
per day. It has a market at fancy
prices for every pound of butter
To the butter manufacturing
plant has recently been added a ten
ton ice works and a firstclass, up-to-date
ice cream plant. The ship
ment of both products to neighbor
ing towns has begun. The es
tablishment now occupies more
than 10,000 square feet of floor
space, the area having been more'
than doubled by recent improve
ments. One of the best experts in
the country is in charge of the ice
cream plant. '1 he product is manu
factured and laid down in homes
cheaper that the housewife can make
it, and the quality is extra fine. It
is far superior to the Portland prod
uct, of which so much has been
used in Corvallis.'": It is very
certain to find a place in many of
the confection establishments of the
valley, and probably Portland. A
neat packing device keeps it in a
solid brick form as long as desired
so that it can be served to suit the
liking of the most fastidious enter
The butter business however,
with its enormous outlay in cash
for butter fat is the big item in the
enterprise, and its growth is watch
ed by Corvallisites with consider
able local pride. When local dairy
men by breeding get their herds up
to a proper standard in which each
cow should as is possible, yield $16
per month, the concern and its
clientel will be a source of great
thrift to Benton county. The av
erage price paid by the establish
ment for cream for last year was a
little above 27 cents. The price
now is 18. '
CATCHING BLACK BASS
Sport for Corvallis Fishermen
---They Find 1 hem Down
Black bass fishing is popular now
among Corvallis sportsmen. Roy
Raber was out Tuesday and made
a catch of seventeen, some of
which weighed four pounds each.
The fish are very gamey and when
once on the hcok. a big one gives
the fisherman a strenuous time un
til the landing is made. The bite
is very vigorous and as soon as
that important event, happens,
trouble begins. A" good strong
line is necssary, in rase a four-
pounder is hooked.
Little fish, three to mx inches
long and alive are used for bait.
They say it is more trouble to get
the bait than the ba-s when the lat
ter are hungry. All sorts of
devices are resorted to in order ' to
capture the minnows, nnd to keep
them alive for use when required.
Several local fisherman are planning
to try a spoon for bait, and the be
lief is that the scheme, will be suc
cessful. The fishing ground is
mostly at the mouth, of Bower's
slough and in Dead river, three or
four miles down the Willamette.
Bass are claimed to be a very
toothsome fish. Of the Raber catch
several were served up in Corval
lis homes and the universal testi
mony is that they are" a great delica
cy. The bones are large and the
flesh very savory. " The fish is
shaped much like a Chinook salm
on, and is not black as its name
would indicate, but has silver for
the predominating hue. Bass was
introduced into Benton county wat
ers by the government a number of

More Trouble for the Moun
tain View Road Is
in Court Again.
The commissioner's court was
wrestling yesterday afternoon with
the Mountain View road proposi
tion, which was generally supposed
to have been settled. W. J. Harp
er, who bought one of the King
places, made the purchase without
knowing that the new road was- to
pass through the farm. The form
er owner demanded no damages,
but Mr. Harper holds that he is in
jured and that he ought to be paid.
He applied to the county court for
relief, but that body had already
gone its limit in the matter, and
did not feel inclined to invest lurth
in the highway. Yesterday, Mr.
Harper again appeared in court,
this time with a lawyer, insisting
that damages be vouchsafed him.
It is stated that unless something
is done for him that he will brin?
an injunction suit, and that Chan
cey Levee will join in the main proceeding.
