Albany Herald: On Friday
evening at Plainview the Advance
thresher owned by Whealdon,
Wheeler & Blatchford was burned
as the result of a hot box. When
the fire was discovered the entire
interior of the machine was in
flames. The loss is between $700
and' $800. The machine had just
started on the second season's run
and the loss at this time of the year
is a most serious one to the owners.
Work was begun this morning
on the Taylor brick, the contract
for which was awarded to Charles
Heckert a few days ago. The con
struction of the walls and founda
tion .has been sublet to Mr. Ham
mellof Albany. The foundation
and walls in the rear of the old
wooden building that now occupies
the site will be built first, after
which the old structure will be
hauled off to the boneyard..
The cement sidewalk ordi
nance has had an electrical effect in
securing the construction of new
wooden walks. The rush to put in
new walks before the cement ordi
nance should go into effect has been
spectacular, and with the result
that the sawmill is overwhelmed
with the demand for sidewalk lum
ber and cannot fill orders as fast as
presented. Yesterday there were
orders for 1,000 lineal feet more of
sidewalk, than there is sidewalk
lumber in the yard. Walks are be
ing built alpng unfrequented streets
and in obscure places where it is
not likely the owner ever thought
of building a walk until the cement
apparition stalked into his startled

A team in the delivery line
managed to send two vehicles to the
repair shop yesterday. The horses
which were driven by Young-Lew
is, took a spin in the forenoon, and
by the time the performance was
over, the wagon was out of com
mission. Early in the afternoon
there was a second performance
and another wagon, borrowed
from Levi Oren was also sent to the
shop for a long line of repair. ; In
the latter engagement the horses
started near the Ireland grocery
store and collided, with a telephone
pole near Small's. A wheel was left
there and by the time Miller's was
reached most of the running gear
was on the ground and traveling
necessarilv slow with the result
that there was a capture in that vi
cinity. A vehicle from one of the
livery stables was put behind the
team and up to the present the way

Standing on Main street and
looking west on Jefferson, one can
observe the effect of obedience to
the grass cutting and cleaning or
dinances. Beginning at the Gra
ham & Wells corner, and extend
ing a distance of several blocks
westward on both sides of the street
everything is tidy and clean, and
the whole appearance most pleas
ing to the eye. As this stretch of
street is, so the whole town would
be were there proper observation of
the, ordinances passed by the city
council. Such observance' would
soon cause all the town to become
interested in tidiness of appearance,
and the result would be a sightli
ness of situation that would make
Corvallis the' envy of home-seekers
and home owners elsewhere. It
would make property more sought,
and thereby more valuable.

There has been a big rush at tl t
chemical laboratory at the college
for several weeks past in the ana
lyzation of . waters. Samples of
water in use and for proposed use
for domestic purposes have been re
ceived from cities in all prts ot the
state for analysis. The realization
hat pure water is an important
consideration in life has been made
emphatic by events of recent oc
curence in the state, and the var
ious commuuities are becoming
more and more alive to the fact.
The lead by Corvallis in the in
stallation of a Mountain water sys
tem has set other localities to , con
sidering the subject, and the con
sequence of it all is that a largely
increased number of samples of
water for analysis is reacning the
OAC chemists. Some of the
samples prove to be good water
and others are discovered to be
totally unfit for use, showing that
without knowledge of the fact,
many a community is consuming
water that is a fruitful source of dis
ease, Among otner waters recent
ly received for analysis was a sam
pie from the Eugene water system
It was not analyzed because re
ceived too long a period alter it
was taken from the mains, and also
because of the absence of Prof.
Pernot, from whom a bacteriologic
al analysis in particular was wanted.
No fee is charged for the ana
lysis of waters, the woik being for
the public health, in which res
pect the college is giving to the
state a valuable service aside from
its educational work. A great
deal of the work in the chemical
and bacteriological laboratories is
in the gratis category, and for the
public f weal.
1 ne otner day, lara sola Dy a
dealer to the state penitentiary was
analyzed. It turned out to be part
lard and part tallow, and in conse
quence was subsequently condema
ed by the prison authorities.

In Benton A Grand Jury's
Report Thereon Advised
The grand jury at the April
term of the circuit court visited the
Benton poor tarm, and made a re
port. The report led to th pur
chase by the Watter s court of a i
farm and to a plan of keeping the
paupers thereon. The report in
full is as follows:
We have made a careful and ex
tensive investigation into the con
ditions at the poor farm and the
treatment received by the inmates
thereof, and find as follows: That
proper care, nursing, and medical
treatment is not furnished the in
mates during sickness nor to those
unable to care for themselves that
the keeper of the farm is accustom
ed to give drugs and medicines oth
er than simple household remedies
to the inmates without proper pre
scriptions and does not uniformly
obey the instructions of the county L
physician with reference to medical
treatment of patients who are in
mates ot the poor farm.
That the sanitary conditions
are pocr and cleanliness of person
and sunoundings on the part of
the inmates is not enforced. That
the inmates-are comfortably housed
and clothed and that food furnished
is sufficient in quality and quantity
but that it is not always cleanly nor
properly cooked by reason of the
fact that the cooking is largely done
by an epileptic charge of the county
who is not a fit person to perform
such services. We recommend that
the county officers immediately take
steps to enforce a more csreful
compliance with the contract for
keeping the county charges with
relerence to the above matters and
that at the expiration of such con
tract the same be not renewed with
the present keeper of the county
charges unless, the above objections
have been remedied.
"We recommend that the county
charges be kept at some place near
the county seat if practicable, and
we recommend to the careful and
favorable consideration of the
county court the "purchase of a site
and erection of a building for hous-.
ing and keeping such charges and
the proper furnishing thereof by the
county. We fuither recommend
that in future contracts the matter
of medical treatment and the fur
nishing of medicines or drugs to in
mates be excluded and not pro
vided for therein, and that, proper
arrangements be made independent
of such contract therefor.
