for the years 1905 and 1906 has

appropriately embellished with a

it. contains a lift of those arrest d
and convicted for violation of the
game laws during the - period cov
ered by the reports, and also a list
of game shipped out of the state.
There are a few familiar names in
both lists. - That of G. M. Simpson
appears more frequently than that
of any other person, not, however,
as ayiolatoT of the game laws, but
as a shipper of game birds. The
repoit shows that Mr. Simpson has
shipped out of this state to various
other states, 609 China pheasants,
90 quails, and a few other varieties
of birds. . The! larger shipments
noted are, 206 and 60 Chinas to

During the last month there has
been a noticeable difference in the
efficie cy of telephone service in
Corvallis. Many times each day
kicks are registered at central from

lines. Hardly a day passes but
what a number of people ring up

company because their line doesn't

At seven o'clock one morning there
were over thirty trouble calls re
presenting sixty different telephones
out of whack and this continued
during the day. No wonder that
the '"hello girls" have difficulty in
keeping their sweet falsetto voices
tuned to soothe the wrath of the
subscriber. Of course they are
paid for being pleasant but realizing
that the subscriber has a right to
kick makes it all the more difficult
for them to meet the situation, and
then too, when the girls are work

troubles, because while they are
explaining to ODe subscriber pro

As is well
known both' telephone companies
are doing considerable work on
) their lines in the way of improve
ments and betterments. The result
of this is obvious. As soon as the
improvements have been completed
the service will be better than ever
and though people's patience may
be taxed to the limit, the result
will b2 more satisfactory service
with a lessened probability of
troubles hereafter. The demand
for telephones has far exceeded the
most sanguine expectation of the
Independent Company and to meet
this increasing demand,, the im
provement of the system was nec
essary. In doinsr this work it is
absolutely impossible for the line-

unknown to th e w o r k
men. It will take . -orcse time yet to
complete present improvements but
the work is being hurried a. rauch
as possible md the public is asked
to be patient.
One feature of the improvement
is the substitution of cables for the
open wires. Tbe;e caLles consist
