Yesterday' sOregonian contain
ed the announcement that Miss Ed a
Jacobs, of this city had been elected
to the office of State Treasurer of
the Rebekahs, in the election of
state officers held in Portland Wed
nesday. The selection is a good
one, and Miss Jacobs' friends con
Henry Robinson, non ot Cap

big cougar over in Alsea Monday
night. It seems that Sunday night
Mr. Robinson had three goats kill

done the work, a trap was set for

S. A. McClure of Southern
Benton was known to many people
of Corvallis as a gentleman who
looked not with pleasure upon any
form of femininity. Wednesday,
however, he was in town to secure
photographs of himself and f imily.
He was married a month ago to
Mrs. Neal, whose dowry was a
farm on the McKenzie river and
several childrn. Mr. McClure' s
new relations afford pleasure to
his many friends who are not, in
this instance, miserly with their
Suit for divorce has been filed

since to live with him, and this is
the grounds on which suit is
brought. W. S. McFadden is attor

There are times when an auto
is not a horseless carriage. The
truth of this was in evidence Thurs
day morning when Hnt's machine
was hamed into town from the
country by a farmer's team. Mr,
Hunt sells washing machines and
travels, usually, in what is known
as a buckbnard automobile. He
explains his mishap by the state
ment that he bursted his gas pipe.
Perhaps machinists will understand
what happened and may not be dis
posed to sympathize deeply with
Mike, but to many people the rup
ture of his gas pipe would seem to
be a distressing thing to occur to
almost any traveling salest a 1.

N. B. and P. Avery arrived
yesterday from a trip of ten days to
Klamath Falls, where they went on
a busines trip. Values of land and
town property there, they say, has
soared to a point far above that
which conditions would seem to
justify, and it is their opinion that
the man who journeys from the
Willamette Valley to that
region to locate will make a mis
take. Mr. P. Avery says he would
not give one of his Benton county
ranches for the entire Klamath

Gladys Moore, mother of the hero;
and Miss Myrtle Harrington,

When each participant did so well
it would seem unfair to give special
mention to anyone. Suffice it to

When Mountain Water Sys
tem is Completed Sugges
tion for Authorities.
Within two or three weeks, the
Mountain water, system will be
completed and ready for operation.
Her magnificent water will then be
the best asset of Corvallis in bid
ding for homeseekers. It will be
one of the public conditions to
which every citizen will point with
pride. The clear sparkling water
from this mountain stream on Ma
ry's Peak will be one of the things
that the visitor in town, when once
brought in contact with it, will
commend not only here, but other
where. All this being true, the conclusion
to follow is axiomatic, there
should be public drinking fountains
where our own people and where
our neighboring farmers and the
stranger within our gates will have
our splendid water, ever convenient
for use. There should be such a
fountain in the court house park.
There ought to be such a fountain
on the public school grounds. The
college authorities should provide
and maintain one on the college
grounds. At two or three points
on the chief business street of the
town fountains should be placed.
Some of them should not only pro
vide water for human beings, but
for the teams that are driven about
the streets. Such a place would be
of infinite convenience to the farm
ers who come to Corvallis to do bus
iness. Even as much as people
love good, pure water, so do horses,
and likewise the dogs. Such foun
tains of all designs are provided in
the market. Thev cost from 46o
upward, very nice and very dur
able, ones being available for $150.
Of course the cost of the more beau
tiful and elaborate ones runs into
tbe thousands of dollars.
There ought to be no trouble in
finding means for adorning Corval
lis with these fountains. Perhaps
our wealthier residents will put up
some of them at their own expense.
No more fitting gift to our town
could be made, and none chat would
be so deeply appreciated or of more
lasting benefit. If the people join
in an agitation for these fountains,
the fountains will be provided, and
the Times suggests that the people
