- 1. Cl Montr Prtat flfforprl
The general committee is busy
:3n the preparations of the big live
stock show that is to be held in
Corvallis June 7th and 8th Five
lmndred dollars has been raised to
be given in prizes, and it is ex
pected to bring to town on the
days mentioned all the fancy stock
in "the county. It is also expected
that exhibits from other connties
"will participate in some of the ya
Hious classes in which competition
is open. It was originally planned
to make the exhibits include poul
try' but fanciers declared the sea
son inappropriate for a display of
birds and that feature was elimin
ated. The entries will according
ly be for horses, cattle, sheep and
hogs. The exhibit of sheep
and hogs will be in pens, and for
this purpose permission of the city
council has been secured for use in
one of the . side streets, perhaps
along that section of thoroughfare
extending from the postoffice to
the City Hall. Full two days will
Tie required for the program, and
the list is becoming so extended
that the committee even fears that
the period will not be sufficient for
their purposes. Assurances already
received indicate that owners of
torses, cattle, sheep and swine in
all parts of the county are becom
ing interested in the show, and
there is not a bit of doubt that the
successful horse show of last year
will dwindle into insignificance
compared to the event for which
the committee is now preparing.
.A full list of the prizes offered will
appear within a few days.
Quoted as Low as Four and a Quarter
Portland Market
A drop in the price of beef is bad
news for stock men. The Port
land market tumbled a few days
ago from five and five and a quar
ter to four and ahalf. and followed
it up yesterday by dropping from
four and a half to four and a quar
ter. The high prices caught the
notice of California stockmen and
a considerable number of cattle
were shipped from that state. It
is also stated that many Oregon
cattle were hurried to market
while yet in poor condition and
that this became a factor in the
drop. At present prices no more
California cattle - will be imported.
It is estimated tnat tnere is 500
head of beef cattle m Benton Coun
ty about ready for shipment.

Track Meet This After-.
A. C.
The annual track and field meet
between O. A. C. and the Univer
sity of Oiegon teams occurs on col
lege field this afternoon. It is gen
erally conceded that the state uni
versity men will have the best of
the argument, and the spirit of the
contest is centered mainly in how
small or how large the margin will
be between the two scores. Pub
lished articles in the metropolitan
newspapers say the university ath
letes expect all the places in the
weights, two places in the sprints,
good places in the quarter, half and
mile, all the places . in the broad
jump, the best places in the hur
dles, and first and third in the pole
vault. In the latter event there
will be conaiderable interest be
cause Claud Swan, the O. A. C.
vaulter and Muellen the university
man in that event are very evenly
matched. In two indoor meets
Swan has defeated Muellen and
the latter has once- turned the trick
on Swan in outdoor meets. The
0. A. C. men figure that Wolff, the
valiant freshman will take a place
in the shotput, and that Hall will
take a good place in the hammer,
tb at Bennett will be heard from in
the discussion of the discus, - that
Schroeder will give Moores a run
for his money for second place in
the 109 yard dash and 220, and that
m some events the U. A. C. men
will give an excellent account of
themselves. The meet begins at

To Sheep Owners.
Until fuither notice it is import
ant that we dip only infected sheep
in our county. All sheep that are
free from infection will be exempt
ed for the present and at a later
date the entire federal force wil'
ivisit the Willamette Valley and in
spect any and all sheep, and should
the percentage of disease appear
slight and the work done appear to
have been effective, the general dip
ping of non-infected sheep may be
waved. All infected sheep will be
reported and dipped at that time
that may have escaped notice.
It is especially desired that we
use our best efforts to eradicate cas
es that may be in existence in or
der that the county may be in a sat
isfactory condition and the federal
authorities will see fit to waive the
general dipping of uninfected sheep.
