A new Postoffice It will Eclipse Every Office in the Valley. Corvallis is to have a new post- office. It will be of such character as to cause the bosom of every Cor- vallisite to swell with pride, and the eye of every stranger within our gates to dilate with admiration. It will eclipse any postoffice of its class in Oregon. In the matter of conveniences, lights and fittings it will be the equal of any postoffice in the country. The old boxes and furniture now in use will be re manded to some other less fortun ate town than is Corvallis, and in stead there will be new boxes of the most modern design, framed in Oak, hung in the richest fashion and in every respect of rich and elegant finish. The floor of the lobby, will be of tile. Instead of two windows as now, there will be half a dozen, one for general deliv- ery, one for stamps, one for regis try, one for. carriers and one for money orders. , The plan is to have the establishment . perfectly adapted to the carrier system, which will come in the near future. Corvallis people have not dreaded of it, but if the business of the office grows in the future as it is growing now, delivery by carriers will be institut ed within three years, certainly not later than four. A growth like that of last year, would make it certain in three. For the quarter ending July 30th, the receipts of the office showed an increase of 20 per cent. It is growth that is quietly going on while people are sleeping, and seems scheduled to go on in the future. The new postoffice is to be locat ed in a building according to the following specifications, taken from the Portland Journal of last Wed nesdav: For Corvallis the depart ment accepted the proposal of Arch' le J. Johnson to lease new quarters for the postoffice on the north side of Madison street, between First and Second streets, for a term of five years from November 1, 1906, in eluding complete equipment of heat, light, safe and water Mr. Johnson is out cf town, and the foregoing facts from the Journ al are all that is known relative to the" contract between him and the government. That he is to furn ish the postoffice fittings and that they are to cost $4,000 is pretty definitely understood. That the office will be removed to the new place early in November certainly not later than' December 1st, is ful ly expected. That when the new modern office is finally in service it will be a place to which all Corval lisites will show the stranger with pride and satisfaction, is certain. When to the splendid college build ings and grounds, the first-class court house and grounds, the very creditable city hall, Hotel rvalhs, fine bank buildings and the splend id mountain water system is added a modern postoffice, Corvallis One of the most glaring exhi bitions of cussedness that ever transpired in this town is the re moval of flowers and plants from the gardens at the city hall. In most instances they are palled up by the roots and carried away. They were put there by public spir ited persons for the beautification of the town, and, after the dilapi dation that had surrounded the hall for years, it would seem that there would have been none mean enough to undo what had been done. Hell isn't hot enough for the skunks or skuskesses that do it. The place is watched now and all the penal ties cf the law will be summarily dealt out in case of a capture. It is of some in erest to add, that cer tain parties are suspected. NEW ADS TODAY. FOR SALE. A good heating stove, cheap. Applv to Mrs. Fitzmaurice, 8th St. Wuestefeldt block.

Kline's private fire department wzs completed yesterday, and there was a test. From the alley back of the store, a stream was thrown from a two inch hose through a five-eighths nozzle across the s.de- walk on the other side of the block, a distance ot lull 120 ieet. ihe efficacy of three such streams in or about the store in case of a blaze would, it will be seen, be .very eat. The wonder is that other establishments do not make similar provisions for fighting fire. ; The County board of Equaliza tion has been in session all week. In all, riot more than three dozen taxpayers have appeared to raise a kick against their taxes. There are something like 2.000 taxpayers in tne county, and the most of them are saving tt-eir vials of wrath to uncork at taxpaying time to the sheriff, who has nothing to do with the fixing of the taxes. Of the two or three dozen who have ap peared before the board, only a few have asked for their assess ments to be lowered, and not one demanded a raise. A reduction of $245 was made in Judge Wood ward's assessment, and a slight re duction was made for Fred Bu chanan. The two railroads that traverse Benton county pay taxes this year almost double that of former years. The valuation per mile has been practically doubled by Assessor Davis. The C. & E. which has 36 miles of track in Benton is assessed at $4,000 a mile on its track and $205 a mile for rolling stock. The total valuation of its property in the county is $160,000. It was $85, 000 last year. The Southern Pa cific pays on a valuation of $104,' 000, its track being valued at $8,- 000 per mile and its rolling stock at $480. Its mileage in the county is 12 miles. Neither railroad has so far had its officials before the county board of equalization, pro testing against the new assessment will be a town to for none of them. take a back seat BUGGY FOR SALE.

AFTER THREE YEARS. Widow Discovered Part of Land She Bought in Ben ton Belonged to Rail rdad. Interest attaches to the case of Mrs. Alvina Robinson and the ex perience she has had with a farm she purchased in Benton county. Three years ago she arrived from the East and bought a place on the Peak road a dozen or fifteen miles westward horn Corvallis. There was 30 acres of land under cultiva tion and comfortable farm buildings on the ranch. Not lone ago. as a result of a survey, she discovered that 15 acres or one-h?lf of her cul tivated land was on a quaiter'own- ed by the railroad company. Of equal importance to her was the discovery made at the same time that the farm, building were also on the railroad section. , It was all a most unwelcome discovery for out in that country 15 acres of tillable land is a good part of a farm and thelo6Softhe 15 acres that is on the railroad section means much to her. She is a widowed lady and of most excellent character; She sup posed when she made the purchase that all that was inside the fence was to become hers. This week she was before the county board of equalization asking for a reduction of her assessment on the eround that she had been the past three years paying on land that did. not belong to her, the whole property, build ings and railroad land having ; also been included in this year's assess ment. Her petition was granted by the board. . For Sale 1 offer my entire poultry out fit and business consisting of 200 fowls, three incubators, one bone grinder, one grit urinder, one rlover cutter.
