" -Wash Young, formerly of Ben ton, a twin brother of Jack Young, has been a Corvalhs visitor for a day or two. , His home is at Se attle where both he and Jack have become weal' by by the growth and increase of values in the Puget Sound metropolis. He is returning from a sojourn in California, to which state he is shortlv to return to reside. His new home will be at Santa Barbara. 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 Bane. 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 tled in the place some time aeo. 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 added intefest, and lead tothequery of, what have the bees in their bon nets this year. The cream of any newspaper tur the Rev. M. S.

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 Draft. 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 cataclysm. A MIDNIGHT RACE. Sunday Excursion on the Corvallis & Eastern Railroad To Newport and Returm.

HO- n s 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 Capture. 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 jumper.

It is copy ing of the plan by which Japan rose from the sioughs of ignorance and superstition into a powerful and progressive nation.

It deals with the books oi the school supeiintendent, recorder, treasurer, s'ueiiff and clerk. It reports a difference be tween the finding of the expert of $1.25 in the case of the superin tendent, 50 cents in thu case of the recorder and $14 in the case of the clerk, and that these amounts have been paid bv said officials to the county. , The findings of the treasurer and expert agree, but by the report of the expert Sheriff Burnett has over paid the county the sum of $21.21 uiore than he has collected, and tl.at the sad sum is now due the sheriff from Benton county.
