PHILOMATH PRECINCT.
The north fork of Mary's river from
where it leaves the coast range to a
point near the residence of Jerry Lilly
and a line produced east from that
point, forms the north boundary of
the precinct, from there it extends
south to the south boundary of town
ship 12 south a distance of 9 miles
From Muddy and a line produced
north from the mouth of the same it
extend west to the summit of the
coast range a distance of about i
miles, being bounded on the north by
King's valley and a part of Soap Creek
on the east by Corvaliis, on the south,
by Willamette and west by Turn Turn
precincts.
The north fork of Mary's river runs
along the north boundary of the pre
cinct, and while the general course i3
east it nukes long bends to the north
and southland when within 1 or 3
miles of east boundary turns abruptly
to the south, to a point near the mid
dle of the precinct, wher; it i joined
by the south fork from the southwest,
.nd fl ws e-st towards the Willamette.
The south fork rises in the Coast
range a little south of Mary's Peak,
the course being northeast. Hinkle
creek rises on and around the east side
of Mary's Peak and runs east into the
south fork. '
The northeast comer of the pre
cinct, the portion lying east of the
river jrhere it turns to the south, con
sists of high bold hills with a few
patches of timber and brush, but prin
cipally grass lands, that furnish a great
deal of feed. There is a, similar tract
of land on the west embraced in the
bend of the river as it makes long
sweep to the south; this embraces what
is known as the Keys- place now
owned by John Rickard. South of the
river and east of the south fork is a
long high ridge the course of which
corresponds with the south fork. The
west side of this ridge is steep almost
down to the water and heavily timber
ed. C 11 the east it falls off gradually
to Muddy, on this tract are good foot
hill farms. Along Mary's river are
some excellent bottom lands. On the
south fork the bottoms are narrow, a
goodly portion of the cultivating land
being cn the foct hills. A large por
tion of the soil in this fork being sticky
land giving rise to the name "Creasy"
by which the south fork is known.
Extending south from the . north fork
and west of the south fork, is a portion
of broken land laying on the side of
the Coast range and extending up the
side of Mary's Peak. In places along
this stretch are comparatively, level
snots suitable for cultivation, but the
greater portion being heavily timbered.
The greater portion of this timber is
of the smaller class suitable for rails
or farm timbers, still there is great
deal of saw timber in this belt.
There is a saw mill on the south
fork where it emerges from the moun
tains, known as the old Huffman mill.
Icha'ood Hinkle has one at his place on
Hinkle creek, and Chas. Logsdon has
one near the junction of the north and
south fork. These are all water mills,
the logs for which are brought down
the river. The O. P. R. R. Co. have
a portable steam saw mill in the hills
near Ichabod Hinkles.
The road from Corvallis to Newport
passes through Philomath. The road
from Alsea valley to Philomath passes
down the south fork, again a road runs
due south from Philomath. Inde
pendent school house is situated on the
road j miles south of Philomath.
There is a school house on the south
fork, and a portion of the northwest of
the precinct is joined with the school
district at the Wrenn school district
in King's valley precinct. There is a
district school at Philomath in addi
tion to the college that is located there
under the control of the United Breth
ren church. This college is consider
ed in a flourishing condition, there be
ing about 100 students at this time.
This institution has a large endowment
fund, hd has an efficient corps of
teachers, President Walker being con
sidered as among the best educators
of .the state.
Philomath as stated above is situ
ated cn the ro.ad from Corvallis to
Newport, 7 miles frcm the former
place and k mile north from Mary's
river. The line of the O. P. R. R. es
located passes through the place.
The town is built on a gently sloapin.s
area of land slightly elevated, the situ
ation being a happy one. The dona
tion land claim of David Henderson
consisting of 320 acres of land was
purchased by the United Brethren
church and a portion of the same laid
out into blocks and lots for building
pui poses and the remainder into 5
and 10 acre tracts which were desig
nated as farm lots. The object being
to furnish individuals moving ts school
their children a means of contributing
to their support. There has since
been purchased by them a similar
tract on the east which has been sim
ilarly laid out and made an addition
to the original town. There is a pro
vision ia all deeds of lots sold forever
prohibiting the saje of intoxicating
liquors. The town of Philomath was
incorporated by the last legislature.
It contains J general stores 1 drug
store, a blacksmith shops, 2 wagon
shops, 1 barber shop, 1 photograph,
galery, 1 livery stable, 1 meat market.
and 1 shoe shop. The population of
the precinct is about 1000. The Uni
ted Erethren church hold regular re
ligious service in the college chapel,
and efforts are being made to establish
a Methodist church at Philomath, and
the Evangelicals hold regular service
at Independent school house.
J. S. Fclger has a flouring mill on
Mary's river 1 mile west of Philam uh.
The donation land claim of the late
Erdridge Hartless mile south o.'
Philomath was amongst the first claim-;
taken in the county. Among the ear
ly settlers were Wm. Matgens, who
built the Fel'ger mill in 1854, Wayman
St. Clair, Wm. Wyatt, loObad and
Jacob Hinkle. There is no more
peaceable, industrious and prosperous
people found anywhere than exists in
this precinct. The Philomath post
office is supplied 3 times a week each
way by the mail route from Corvallis
to Newport, and twice a week by the
route from Dallas to Alsea.
The following contains a list of the
names of the persons paying .tax upon
property in Philomath precinct
and the amount of tax paid by each,
as shown by the last assessment roll-j William Spencer
fur Benton county.

The Rev. W. H. H. Murry, whose
advice is worth heeding, says about
shoeing. The nail shoujd be quite
small and driven in more gently than
is the custom. There is no reason
why the smith should strike a blow
at the livlle uail head as strong as be
would deliver at the head of a spike
in an oak beam. The hoof of a horse
is not an o:k stick, and the delicately
pointed' nd slender-headed nail is
not a wrought iron spike, and yet
you will see the nailer, whack awav
at them as if it were a matter of life
and death to get them set in entirely
et iu ai two blows of his hammer.
Insist thut the nailer shall driTe bis
nail slowly and steadily, iii3tnd of
using violence. Iu this place it the
nail is badly pointed atd gets out the
proper line of direction, no great in
jury is done. It can be withdrawn
and a new one substituted, without
harm having been done to the looti
But the Bwift, blind and violent way
preveuts all each care, and exposes
the horse to tempoary, if not perman
ent injury. Gentleness should be
exercised in clinching the nails.
Never allow a smith to touch a rasp
to the outer surlac of the hoof. Na
ture hag covered it with a thin fila
ment of enamel, the olject of which
is to protect the inner membrance
and fiber from exposure to water and
atmosphere. The enamel is exactly
what nature puts on the Pur4ce of
your finger-naH, reader. Under no
circumstances should it ever be touch
ed. If it is removed nature will be
wickedly deprived of her needed cov
ering, and cruelly left exposed to the
ek-nient.

"Poker Bili" tells of a boarding
house keeper who is iifSicted with a
very convenient degree of deafness
He hears only when it is for bis in
terest to do so, and is apt to misun
derstand to his own interest. Bill
gives the following incident of his
perversity:
"When I went to breakfast yes
terday morning I went up to the
counter and asked my landlord if
anybody had called to sk for me.
"Said I, lias there been a man here
to see me this morniug a oe-ey?d
man "
" 'Glad you want to pay it. now;
I need money very badly,' said the
landlord.
"Then I yelled: 'Has anybody
asked for me this morning ?"
" 'No, I don't want to sue you, but
I shall expect the money next Mon
day, sure,' says my landlord.
" 'All right, I'll pay you," yelled
I.
" 'You needn't yell in that way,
I'm a little deaf, I know, bnt still
can heal it thunder,' says the land
lord. ''Then in comes another boarder,
and savs to the landlord, 'Good
morninir.' "
" 'I'll tell you in a minute,' says
the landlord. 'I believe it's only
about fifteen dollars.'
''So it goeft right along. I'm going
to pay up next Monday," says Bill,
"and yon bet I'll never stop with
another deaflftndlord not if I know
it." Virginia Cilij Nev.) Enterprise.

An old offender was lately brought
before; a learned justice of the peace
iu England. The constable as a pre
liminary informed his worship that
he had in custody John Simmons,
alias Jones, alias Smith. "Very
well," said the magistrate, "I will try
the two women first. Bring in Alice
Jones."
"Oh, you don't want to go into
any busbies don't you?" said an
angry cockney father to his lazy and

Asked a man, as he entered a gro
eery in town the other day, and
pointed to a large Worcester county
which the grocer bad just takeu
from the box.
"One of the very bast," raplied the
grocer, "try it," he said, passing the
knife to the man, who took a gener
our sample and said:
'That suits ray taste exactly. Ca
you cut off five pounds of that?
"Yes, sir," said the grocer, as ha
took his knife and cutting out a
wedged-shaped piece put it in the
scales. It lacks just two ounces,"
and he proceeded to do it up.
"Lack? just two ounces!" said the
man. "Well I didn't think you could
cut exactly five pounds. I didn't
want any only I thought I would
find out how near you could cut."
If it hadn't been bo slippery the
grocer would have caught him.

HOW A MAN WALKS.
One of the most remarkable things
about a man's walk, says Science for
Ail, is the diagonal movement which
characterizes it. The hands and feet
may be regarded as forming the four
corners of a parallelogram, and the
diagonal limbs are, of course, the
right arm and left leg and tbe left
arm and right leg. By "diagonal
movement" is meant that the diag
onal limbs during locomotion always
swing in the same direction. Tha
arms swing by the body like a couple
of pendulums, and with a speed
which entirely depends upon tbe
rate at which he may be walking.
The athlete, anxious to complete the
given number of "laps" in a mile, or,
a couple of miles, and outstrip hie
competitor, swings his arms to and
fro with a quickness which corres
ponds with the motion of his swift
feet; the business maa also swing
his arms with a motion which, if not
so quick, exactly times with the mo
tion of bis legs. iNow, if the motion
be even carelessly observed, it will
bo found that the right aim ewioga
forward at the same time a tbe left
leg, and when the rigtit leg is ad
vancing it in the left arm which ac
companies it. This diagonal move
ment of the limb is the natural
method adopted by man wha walk
ing, and. it is the first and most ap
parent fact that one ascertains in
studying hum-in locomotion.
