Prettyman, of Oak Grove, Writes Hb Views to the Albany Herald O.h- er News. Editor Herald: "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. ' W. D. PRETTYMAN. Boss Belts Beautiful Beads Bachelor Brushes Busy Bazaar i Big Brigade Baying Bargains 71 Cl . C..1 I Ct.

Second, Portland, Oregon 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 united faith in wildcats. 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 eral days. Wilmington, Del., June I5. -From five to 4O laehes each were publicly administered to nine per sons. : A nine-year-old white boy, Adam Ward, convicted of highway robber?, received the larger cumber.
