By a Citizen of Benton W. D.
Prettyman, of Oak Grove,
Writes Hb Views to the
Albany Herald O.h-
"In last week's H-rald, there ap
peared an item" in reference to tbe
Corvallis road leadiog to' the steel
bridge, and tbe rumor as Btated is
the correct solution of the county
court's failure to repair the road.
Corvallis is opposed to Albany
ehariog the trade from that part of
tqe country, and has always treat
ed ns with contempt when we de
sired any improvements. We get
no recogption trom the county only
what the law compels the court to
allow ia tbe matter of bridge re
pairs and other small items, and
then tbe work is patch work as in
tbe case of the case of the Thorhtan
Lake bridge after the high water,
and tbe result js that the county is
threatened with a uii for damegest
that mil cost the county more than
a new bridge. ; I submitted a writ
ten proposition to the county court
a ffw years ago, agreeing to make a
fill aciots Thornton Lake, twelve
feet wide on top of grade and rip
rap the sides of fill with stone for
$247.00, but no, tbe court next
week let a contract for the bridge
thbt bad just fallen down, paying
therefor $2500.00. I would state
that in my offer the county was to
furnish the tiling lor the flow of wa
ter, Costing probably $20. In a
matter of damages to property the
court graciously requested the peti
tioners to go down in their pockets
and pay the email sum 'of $25, as
tbe county was so poor she could
cot afford to pay it, but after a hard
struggle did consent to pay it, but
it almoet bankrupted the county. At
the same time tbe county was
spending $1000 on the road lead
ing from Corva'lie to Monroe. . We
have ben trying for two years to
get tiling for three culverts
on the road in this precinct, hut all
in vain; no mrney for ns. Conse
quently no tillu?. Poor Benton
county, I am sorry for yoo are al
most bankrupt. There was some
new lumber hauled on tbe ground
for building the new bridge a few
weeks ago and as they used most of
the old lumber, tbe snpervieor in
formed rxetbat he requested the court
to allow him a part of the: lumber
for culvers. Oh, yes,- all right,
but when he sent a team after it
there was no lumber In sight, all
hauled away, no lumber for us.
Now, Mr: Editor, some may say
ttat I am a chronic growler. All
right,' Fay what you like, as every
resident in this neck oi the woods
oppoeite Albany knows that every
thing that I have written u the
truth, and this state of affairs has
existed for the last twenty years to
my personal knowledge. We do
not expect any change. until we
are cut loose from Benton and at
tached to Line It is an old saying
and true it ie, "A long lare that
never turns." The only time that
Corvallis recogtsizes us is in tax
time. More suoo. '

For the very good reason that
tbe old cat's fur wasn't worth any
thing sr late ia the spring be let it
live.. Because he didn't like to see
the kitten suffer he cllrxbt d np and
got it. As it was too far gone to
s'and he took it home and nursed
it. Next morning the mother cat
sat on the stoop Until Mann came
out, when she darted up a tree.
For several day s she hut e, around
and fira'ly got to paying visits to
her offspring in the woodshed.
Since then she bas been exceeding
ly friendly and tbe trapper cays he
will be able to pet ber before long.
When the kitten ha thoroughly
recovered it will be turned noe.
At present it is docile, but Minn
keeps a few hens and be hasn't un

M'Keever, N. Y., June 15. Hor
ace Mann, a trapper of this place,
has struck up an odd friendship
with an old female wildcat, or more
properly speaking, the cat has struck
up a : close friendship with him.
The companionship grew out of a
chance acquaintance which seems
to show that even a wildcat has a
streak of gratitude buried way down
in the region next the heart.
' Mann was gathering some traps
about a fortnight ago when be was
attracted by the snarls of a wildcat
at the base oi a tree a little distance
in front of him. As the feline dido
run tbe trapper rightly - concluded
that her young were near.; After a
iew momems ne caught sight on
one kitten in the top of a small
popple sappling where it balanced
and mewed because it was afraid to
come down. One foot had been
lDjurea in a sieei trap and once
having climbed the tree it feared to
descend. It was ihm and weak
and Mann's practiced eye told him
that the little animal had been
perched in the popple for sev

Many of the spectators left after
the fin-t whipping. The one that
toncbed the hearts of all was tbe
child, who was among the first vic
tims. After the first fall of the cat-o'-Dine

slip ooe hand from bis bonds and
tried to reach around to save his
back. "Please lei me go; I'll be

no cessation. The lash continued
to fall till the alloteJ number, had
