The Cordley-Shaw bug and
bird honting expedition arrived
home Wednesday. After five
weeks of travel in a land where the
mercury played around 108 and no
in the shade most of the time, the
caravan didn't move like a boy-killing
Portland auto car or present the
shiny appearance of a newly paint
ed buggy in the morning sunlight.
The lorses didn't prance up street
like war steeds, but meandered
along with bowed heads and weary
steps. Prof. Shaw secured 75 fine
specimens of which 30 are believid
to be new ones, several of which he
did not expect to find. Prof. Cord-
ley s searcn tor bug specimens was
equally successful, and the trip
fruitful of results. Both know now
what an ': Eastern Oregon desert
means in the good old summer
time. " "
Albany Democrat: The sili
cate sand for the two big filters of
the Willamette Valley Co , arrived
by freight last evening, and the
100,000 pound capacity steel car
filled with it was side-tracked at the
Magnolia Mills, from which it will
be taken to the water power station
and placed in the filters. Besides
the sand, a special kind of gravel,
to come from Seattle, is also delay
ed, and will be here tomorrow or
next day, when it will take a day
or two to place- them in the filters
ready for use, o that by Monday
perhaps they will be in use, a con
summation generally desired by Al
bany people, for the water has been
pretty muddy, making an unpleas
ant food for those using hydrant
water. The company is as anxious
as its patrons for the new conditions
to begin, and will use every effort
to have the filtered water in the
pipes, which will give the city a
fine water system, not. excelled in
the valley, for there is no question
as to the purity ot the Santiam wa
ter, shown by " the health record of
the city. ,

R. A. Heritage, formerly of this
city bat now a well known musical
director ot Spokane, Washington,
has been engaged to take charge ef

the university faculty is entitled to
congratulations in securing his services.
In two weeks, the Albany
Democrat savs. the new Indepen
dent Tel.. phone exchange will be
working in Albany. Two hundred
Independent phones have already
been wired, and by that time a'n
additional fifty will have been in
stalled. It will then, except for le
gal restrictions, be almost possible
for the twin Willamette cities to
swap drinks by phone.
The annual summer search for
houses in Corvallis has begun. In
the main those who are looking for
quarters are people from abroad
who want to come here for educa
tional purooses. Several of this
class have already made engage
ments, and it is likely from indica
tions that those who apply late will
as usual, be unable to find suitable
dwellings. The eighty houses built
last year have greatly increased the
visible supply, but it is the opinion
of those conversant with the situa
tion that all and more will be re
quired to satisfy the demand. Cat
alogues at the co. lege are going out
at a lively rate now, and applica
tions for them are daily increasing.
It is expected now that Inde
pendent telephone connections with
Portland will be available at Cor
vallis within two months. The
construction gang is already started
out of Portland, running south on
the Eastside. The survey is now
at Salem and the stringing of wire
is nearing Oregon City. Ten cir-
I cuits are being built which will pro
vide tor the swift transaction of bus
iness. Albany is expected to be
reached within two months with
the long distance circuits, at which
time Corvallis, via the local Inde
pendent system will begin at Once
to talk direct with the metropolis.
The present haste of the Indepen
dent people is to hurry the line
through as quickly as possible in
order to get the corvallis and Al
bany exchanges in communication

He was in Corvallis Plans
that his Sister's Revolver
Perry Mitchell, brother of the
slayer of Creffield was a Corvallis
visitor Wednesday. He came in
on the Wetside from Newberg at
noon and left for Portland on the
6:30 C. & E. yesterday morning.
His errand in town was to consult
with O. V. Hurt. He was by the
side of George Mitchell at the Se
attle depot when the latter was
shot down by Esther Mitchell. He
says that what makes the affair
the more terrible is that both Esther,
and Georsre Mitchell were favorites
in the Mitchell family. Both were
extremely beloved by- all other
members of the family.
. . In appearance Perry Mitchell so
much resembles his dead brother
that he was recognized on the street
by straugeis as likely to be a
Mitchell from pictures of George
published in the newspapers re
cently. He is of medium height,
rather slight build, with brown
hair, and a smoothly shaven,
pleasant face. He is 21 years of
age. He expects to be a witness
at the trial of his sister, but does
not want her convicted. At the
time of the shooting, he wa s al
most prostrated with grief, and
signs of sadness were plainly vis
ible on hi? face when in Corvallis.
He became for a time iu a measure
embittered toward his sister, but
according to all accounts it has
largely passed away, and though,
likely to be called as a witness for
the prosecution, he will only be in
the witness box against his will,
and as iar as he can, will shield his
sister. He went from Corvall is to
Portland, where he expects to ob
tain employment. He was to have
worked in the same establishment
side by side with his brother
George who was to assist him m
learning the business but the sis
ter's revoiver at tne Seattie depot
disarranged that plan.
