It was the proud boast of a
Portland paper the other day that
a four-foot section of a limb from a
plum tree bore '56 well developed
plums." Yesterday thete was ex
hibited in the Times office a limb
of equal length on which there was
159 fine, luscious peach plums.
The branch weighed 14 pounds.
On the four feet cf limb there was
nearly a quarter of a bushel of fruit.
Two plums dropped while the limb
was being brought to the Times of
fice which made the original num
ber 161. The grower was Samuel
State Land Agent Oswald
West left this morning after a hur
ried visit to his hop vard on Kieer
Island. The latter comprises 30
acres and was formerly the Mc-Mahou-Siug
On yard. In the farm
there is 10 acres of land, and a
peach orchard is to bs set out the
coming season. Mr. West went
from Corvallis to Portland in an
swer to a subpoena to appear in the
land fraud cases.
The janitorship at the court
house is still in the air. Elevea
tried and true citizens offer them
selves as candidates for the posi
tion, but up to the present, there is
no chosen one. Wednesday after
noon the position was declared va
cant, but no permanent successor
wa selected. It is understood that
Judge Woodward had one candi
date for the place, and that Com
missioner Smith had another.
Court adjourned without an ap
pointment, and H. H. Glassford
has been placed in temporary
charge. J. D. Wells, former jani
tor, is out and has accepted a posi
tipn as deputy game warden.
There is a swarm of bees in
Tom Vidito's chimney. They set

and the story of the boy who had
some of it, is that there is lots of!
honey on the inside. He ought to
know for he was, when he told the
story, all swollen up with a stung
place, inflicted on kis person by a
bee. The account is that the little
workers can be seen fogging in and
out of the chimney at all hours in
the prosecution of their business in
honey making. Recent accounts
these columns of how similaiiin
swarms of bees have settled in the
chimneys of Rich Irwin and Wm.
Barclay, make the Vidito swarm of

of, what have the bees in their bon

Reports that Forrest Smithson,
Fred Wann, Prof. McKellips and
Prof. Taillandies had been fined for
alleged violations of the game law
at Yachats are not true. I. H.
King of Portland, who was camped
near the Wann-Smitbson party was
caught with a deer in hi s possession
and fined $25 and'costs, whtch fine
was paid, and it is probably this
incident that is reponsible for the
rumor involving the Corvallis men.
The hands of the latter have not
yet been bathed in deer blood as
was the case with Mr. King and his
dear blood. The arrest was made
by John Wells of Corvallis, deputy
game warden, and a similar officer
from Eugene. The proceedings
were at Waldport. The total cost
for the violation was $26.50 and
the animal killed w is a tough old
doe at that.
Nat Stewart, formerly of Ben
ton, after 1 2 years service as sheriff
at Santa Barbara, California, is a
candidate for re election, and will
have,, according to a Santa Barbara
paper, little or no opposition. The
term of office is four years, and the
salary about $6,000 a year. Mr.
Stewart, was the son of the late
Kim Stewart, who died in Corvallis
a number of years ago. Sheriff
Stewart is a man of very fine qual
ities and great popularity, as evi
denced by his career as a public
official, in which he has been three
times elected sheriff. He is an oc
casional visitor to his old home in
Benton, having been here three or
four years ago on a hunting expe
dition with P. Avery, R. E. Gib
son and others.
IN A BANK VAULT.
During Great Fire at San
Francisco A Corvallis
A draft that was in the vault of
a San Francisco bank during the
earthquake and through the fire
that followed was displayed on
Main street yesterday. It was a
draft sent by August Fischer
through the First National Bank of
thU city and was in the vault of
the First National of San Francis
co when the latter was burned.
The Frisco bank was located in the
heart of the burned district, and
the fierce h.at that consumed the
building is evidenced by the ap
pearance of the draft. The vault
turned out to be fire proof, but just
a little more heat comparatively
would have fixed things. As it
was the Corvallis draft was badly
discolored and had been heated to
a point where it was practically
charred. Bits of paper detached
from it and rolled between the fing
ers crumbled like rotten chalk. It
was so far damaged that it was
past use, and was sent back to Cor
vallis to the sender to have a dupli
cate issued, which was done. The
remains ot the old dratt will be
kept as a souvenir of the great

AN OREGON MAN.
Por a Fine Line
After Seven Years is Home
From China A Former
O. A. C. Student.
An Oregon boy who has, at
tained considerable distinction in
the Orient, but who has returned
to his native state to reside, was in
Corvallis a couple of days this week.
He is Prof. E. D. Lyman, lte of
Shanghai, China. Prof. Lyman
was formerly a student at OAC,
where he was a classmate of G. W.
Denman, and a fellow student with
E. E. Wilson and John F. Fulton.
After leaving OAC, he graduated
at Stanford, and after that did
special work in chemistry at the
University of California. He also
served as chemist for a year at a
California beet sugar factory and
later went to Leipsic, Germany,
where he further pursued his stud
ies as chemist. In 1898, he went
to Shanghai, China, and became a
professor of chemistry in the Chin
ese government college. He re
mained in the government educa
tional service of the Chinese em
pire until a few months ago when
he retired on account of ill health
of his family. He expects to locate
permanently in his native s'.ate.
At the time he left China, he had
just been promoted to a position in
the imperial college at Tien Tsin
on a salary of 2,400 ptryear, gold.
According to Prof. Lyman, a
great change is coming over China.
On Corvallis Streets Officer
and Fugitive But no
The Times has not been able to
ascertain the identity of the actors
in the story that follows. The
drama transpired Tuesday night,
and the facts are about thus: A
belated business man opened the
front door and was in the act of
passing into the hall at his board
ing house. At the same moment
an unknown man made a dash to
pass out the door. In the darkness
the stranger stumbled and fell over
a chair, but escaped before the
thunderstricken business man could
gather his wits sufficiently to act.
In the belief that it was a burglar
a hasty telephone call was sent to
Officer Osburn. who was reached
at once. A chase resulted with
the business man and the officer in
hot pursuit, but not fast enough to
make a capture. For a time they
lost the fugitive but presently re
covered the trail by the swift foot
falls as the latter raced madly along
a well known street. " They saw
and recognized him finally as be
leaped the dooryard hedge and dis
appeared in his own back door,
but they won't tell who hei--.
For real good sprinting, the
midnight caller, when once squared
away on a good stretch, is un
questionably a goer, and the night
watch and his unknown partner in
the incident solemnly swear that he
is equally formidable as a high
