At the College More Money
Needed Before W ork can
The movement which began a
vear ago for the student building
for the use of the Y. M. C. A. and
other student oiganizaiions has ben
resumed and it is expected to buil'1
tbe j-trucuire this summer. The
canvass for funds and work on the
building were temporarily discon
tinued a;outtwo months ago, owing
to the illness ot Mr. Shepard. the
secretary. The building commit
tee, of which Prof. Lake is chair
man, have taken the matter up
again and have secured the co-operation
of the stale committee . of the
Y. M. C. A. in theraisingof funds.
At the first meeting of the stud
ents held a lit tie over a year ago
nearly $5,000 was pledged, the av
erage being $24 for each student
many ot whom are working their
way through college. . With such
a spirit of heroic self sacrifice and
determination as this on the part of
the students, the directors of the
Association have ielt ' justified in
asking the people of 4Corvallis and
other parts of the state to aid in the
erection of the building. The sum
of $4,800 has been subscribed by
people outside of Corvallis, $700
by Alumni, $1,000 by members of
the faculty, and $1,300 by residents
of Corvallis. It is necessary to
raise $2 300 more so that the build
ing may be erected without debt.
The recent San Francisco disaster
makes it difficult to secure contri
butions from Portland, Salem and
other cities so the building com-.
mittee have felt that they must look
to the residents of Corvallis and
Benton county for a large part of
the remainder. While those who
have already subscribed have been
very liberal there is a large number
the committee says, who have as
yet given nothing.
The project has drawn the atten
tion of the people of the state to
the college and the community,
and they expect the building to be
built. Those having the matter in
charge are therefore bending every
effort to insure its completion this

IMPORTANT TO CORVALLIS.
Profit by This and Find Safeguard
Against Mny Ills.
"thing is more important to Corrallis
th . the good health of her people. How
cai. tbey fill their place in this busy
tow u unless they are well?
No one trouble is responsible for more
nervous ill?, sleeplessness, general debil
ity, weakness, . back-aches, rheumatic
pains, even ill-temper and peevishness,
Fortunately a combination of reme
dies, called Mi-o-na stomach tablets, has
been discovered that absolutely cures in
digestion and restores to health and
strength the whole digestive system. The
use of Mi-o-na is a safeguard against ma
ny ilk ; it acts directly upon the gastric
glands, restores perfect action to tbe di
gestive organs, aids the assimilation of
food, and so strengthens the whole di
gestive system that yon can eat anything
at any time without fear of indigestion.
Ju6t one little tablet out of a 5O cent
box of Mi-o-na bf-fore meals for a few
days, and you will soon regain perfect
health and strength, and be able to eat
anything digestible withont fear ofetom-
So reliable is Mi-o-na in curing all
forms of stomach weakness and troubles
that Graham & Wells give a signed guar
antee that the remedy will cost nothing
unless it cures. Mi-o-na sells for 50 cents
and is invaluable to any one who suffers
with indigestion, nervousness or week

"We would not ha without Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy. . It is kept on hand contin
ually in our home," says W. W. Kearney,
editor of the Independent, Lowry City, Mo.
That is just what every family should do.
When kept at hand ready for instant use, a
cold may be checked at the outset and cored
in much less time than after it has become
settled, in the system. . This remedy 'is also
without a peer for croup in children, and
will prevent the attack when- given as soon
as the child becomes hoarse, or even after
the croupy cough appears, which can onlybe
done when the remeay is kept at hand. For
