Corvallis was never so fullas
now ot uuuaing rumors. ine
street is alive with them. Whether
or not there is : foundation - for-- it
the times is unable to say. . - When
men who are supposed, to know ae
asked about it they shake their
heads and pot on a child-like and
innocent look as though they
wouldn't harm a kitten or ever . tell
a story. Probably they-wouldn't;
Still they get their heads together,
several of. them and talk - very
earnestly, looking around all .the
time to see if any bpdy. is listening;
The rumors that fjy,i, credit some
body with a purpose.! of building
a big hotel, a fine brick' structure,
three stories high and to cost $50,
000. Everybody whose name is
being connected by rumor -with it,
says there is nothing, in the talk,
but still the talk goes t busily . and
presistently on. It even tells that
there are to be 25 rooms with
private bath, that there is to be
every modern convenience and that
Mr. and Mrs. Hammell will be in
charge. Whether or not there is
anything in the reports times
readers must judge for themselves.
All the paper knows about it anr
probably some more is - printed
