TUESDAY EVENING, APR. 2, 1907
Albany and Corvallis.
An Albany fraternal order came
to Corvallis last Sunday to worship.
The visit was an ; expression of
good fellowship. It was an incarn
ation of friendly relation. The
exchange of friendly visits by the
fraternal orders in the two towns is
frequent, It is the embodied ab
sence, of feudism and the disappear
ance of hostile rivalry. The (petty
rivalries common to towns and cit
ies similarly situated as are! Cor
vallis and Albany, are silly.. They
are too small to be encouraged
There is room and plenty of it for
both. There i3 enough trouble in
the world anyway, , without . the
canker worm of intertown hostility
of which there are so frequent and
so illuminating manifestations.
There is scarcely ever excuse for it.
and never honor in feeding and
keeping it alive.
It is better in the sight of God
and man for one town to help build
the other up instead of seeking to
drag it down. A cordial ; relation
- is pleasurable for both, and the
feud relation bitter.; for both.
Mutual good feeling and kindness
is testamentary to the common
sense and the opposite signifies
more or less of petty mindedness in
It is a good day for Corvallis
and for Albany when their fraternal
orders lead the way for mutual es
eem. May all the good people
- n both towns follow the example;
KNIGHT TEMPLARS .WERE HERE.
... They Came and Went by Special Train
Many in Uniform Their
. i Worship.
In accordance with an ancient
, custom, Knight Templars celebrate
Easter service with : appropriate
- ceremonies. This is -the custom
. the world over, where 'Knight
, , Templarism exists. Temple Com-
mandery at Albany ' usually wor-
- ships in the elegant Masonic hall
..ot that city. At times they have
sent to Portland, Salem, and cities
more remote ior prelate to officiate
on that special . occasion. .. This
year that distinguished office was
conferred upon Dr. T, R. N. Bell, I
..... pastor of tbe First , Presbyterian
, church of this city. ; And the hon
or ;was more significant for the fact
that the Masonic body accompanied
, by the Eastern Star of that city,
came to this city to worship.. Prom-
inently among the ; number were,
D. P. Mason! the patriarch of Ma
sonary in Oregon, W. R. Bilyeu",'
J- R. Cusick, Frank Miller, C.
..Winn and Russell Wyatt.
. The services at the Presbyterian
church were held at 3 o'clock so
as not to conflict with the services
of any other, church. Dr Bell's
sermon was a masterly effort. - and
the scene confronting him was a
, .! sight to behold, for it was a fore
ground of plumed Knights sur
rounded by the order ot , Eastern
. Star. Upon repairing to the Ma
. sonic Hall refreshments were serv
' ed by the ladies of the Eastern
Star. The local Knight Templars
and members of Oregon Council
No. 2 R. &. S. M. sought in every
'- way to make it pleasant for ' the
visitors. 1 he rest of the afternoon
was devoted to visiting and to the
cultivation of that fellowship which
is cordially harmonizing the rela
tions that ?x1'st between Albany
At the close of the exercises the
guests expressed the wish that the
Masonic bodies of Corvallis ' might
v, at some time in the near future re
turn the visit,

Surmounted by Heroic Figure Monu
, ment for old Soldiers in Crystal
: Lake Cemetery.
A big monument for the old
soldiers plat in Crystal Lake ceme
tery was the occasion of a meeting
in Gr A. R. hall Saturday night.
The plan as the Times has hitherto
stated, is to raise $1,000 for the
monument, and $300 of the sum
has already been raised and the
monument association is gathering
funds as fast as possible . to com
plete the figure, ,rItt time a. sub
scription paper will find" it way
along the street and .of course will
meet with a liberal response. Of the
30 old soldiers in the vicinity each
have, pledged $10. The monument
planned is a base 10 feet high sur
mounted by a; heroic figure of tbe
theme. In connection with.'Satur
day's meeting a supper was" served
in connection from, which a neat
sum was realized for the monument.
The meeting was i enlivened by
tbe following programme: ... ' '

HOW THEY STEAL FLOWERS.
In This ToWWhat it Means An in
cident and a few Remarks There-
, on. .'.A .,'..'.'"
The cry in Portland is lor a
beautiful city.. The newspapers
there plead 'for adornment of door
yards . with t roses and flowers.
The movement everywhere is in
the same direction. , People real
ize as never J. before what flowers
and roses; mean. They are beauty,
and beauty; softens and . mellows
human life.5' " It elevates and thrills,
and at the same time; rests and
refreshes. It turns thought "away
from the cares of business and
makes the world more peaceful
and more pleasant.
And to the stranger who comes
home-TJeeking it is attractive. It
interests and delights hinu Where
the roses .bloom and the : flowers
smile through their tints of beauty,
hie. loves to .linger. Every flower
face and every blushing rose is an
invitation to him to bide, among
them. . v ; :
We. print costly pamphlets and
send them broadcast telling of " the
wonders of this wonderland of
Oregon.' We advertise : and we
sermonize bh our resources and
we urge the homeseekers to come.
Yet the one thing that is a means
of most powerful inducement to
them to remain is often overlooked,
and that is the beauty possible of
producing with flowers and roses.
And here is the point in these re- j
marks. There are children and
grown up people in Corvallis who
are wilfully destroying the flowers
and roses in the door yards of
home - owners. Three little girls
13 or 14 years old invaded a yard
last night about 7:30 o'clock and
nearly robbed a bed of its blooming
hyacinthys. Without permission
and with perfect disregard of their
rights in the premises, they stole
into the place and tore the flowers
from the bed. The lady of -the
house heard them and when she
appeared they fled just as sneak
thieves flee and just as burglars
flee. It was an outrage (because
the people who plant these flowers
want them for the beauty the
floweis give to their places. They
do not want them torn up an car-'
Nor is this the only instance.
There are complaints all the time.
The effort to beautify the City Hall
park met with even worse dis
couragement. Grown up , people
tore up by the roots and carried off
highly prized shrubs and flowers
that had bsen procured at consider
able cost and great patience." The
practice was carried on to such an
extent that the effort to keep the
park beautified is about to be aban
doned. . . "'
" In the case of the three little
girls, thoughtlessnese more than
downright meanness is probably
the; explanation. Children' cannot
be expected to know all, that
grown folks, know. The Wonder
is, cannot all people in town be
come interested in the encourage'
ment. lof . a Corvallis beautiful.
Cannot the children be taught the
idea, and be made little guardians
rather than little marauders of the
flower plats. Cannot the public
school teachers, the college instruc
tors and parents all join in a move
ment for making Corvallis a "sight
ly town to see? We have the
best town in Western Oregon, we
have the most delightful site for
a town with the mos! beauti
ful- surroundings, can we not add
these artificial touches when nature
has given to us so generously ?
