extends from Soap Creek precinct on
the north to Willamette on the south,
and from the Willamette river west to
Philomath precinct, being 12 miles
from north to south and abcut four
milts east and west, bounded as indi
Mary's river runs east through the
middle of the precinct and empties in
to the Willamette river. Muddy creek
which forms the western limit of the
southern half of the precinct, empties
into Mary's river from the south. In
the Willamette river, above Corvallis,
is an island some four miles in length
and an average width of near a mile
a good portion of this has been heavily
timbered, but now well cleared of the
best timber, still largely covered with
brush, but there is considerable portion
of clear land in detached tra ts, these
prairies consist of a deep sandy loom
and the timber of a rich alluvium.
This land has for a long time buen in
cultivation and has produced excellent
crops of grain and vegetables. Hay
crops, however, have not proven a suc
cess. A limited number of cattle and
sheep have been kept and have done
well, feeding amongst tiie brush in the
timber lands. A great many hogs
have also been raised and fattened in
the timber lands and do remarkably
well. Of late years hops have been
tried and the soil and climate nave
been found remarkably well adapted
to their growth.
Between tiie Willamette river and
Muddy is a level prairie, with a, soil
of clay loam that has proven very pro
ductive all the cereals for which pur
pose ii is principally used, as the sys
tem of mixed farming more common
on the foot hills has not been adopted
to any extent on these level areas.
There is however a small area of white
clay lands within this district which
has been chiefly applied to grazing,
but it has recently been found that
this land will produce a good yield of
Along the Willamette and Mary's
river in the north half of the precinct
are river bottom lands and a short dis
tance from the Willamette a slightly
elevated plateau. On this is situated
excellent farms and all is in cultivation.
The southwestern portion of the pre
cinct is foot hill land much of it oak
hills, but a large portion in cultivation
and produces good crops. The hus
bandry consists in growing grain, hay,
vegetables and fruit, also dairying,
sheep and hog growing, all of these
being very remunerative. The farmers
throughout the precinct are well to do.
Land rates from $20 to $50 per acre.
The population of the precinct is about
2500. There are some 5 or 6 roads lead
ing out from Corvallis to different pof
tions of the country.
Corvallis the etfunty seat of the
county is pleasantly situated on the
west bank of the Willamette river.
It is the head of navigation the lower
stages of the river. It is the present
terminus of the O. fc C. R. R. western
division, being 97 miles from Portland.
It is also a point on the Oregon Pacific
Railroad now in course of construction.
The Oregon office of the O. P. R. R.
is located here. Corvallis has a popu
lation of 1200 to 1500. There art.
here 9 general merchandise stores,
4 variety stores, 4 general groceries,
2 drug stores, 2 stove and 1 general
hardware stores, 2 jewelers, 2 boot
and shoe rtores; there is 1 foundry, 3
blacksmith shops, 4 boot and shoe
makers, 2 taylors, 2 waggon and car
riage makers, 3 harness makers. There
are 8 practicing physicians, xo prac
ticing attorneys and two dentists.
The saw mill of Max Friendly is sit
uated at the lower end of town and
turns out a large lot of lumber every
year, the logs for which are procured
in the mountains and run down the
river to Corvallis. Hr. Pitman has a
plaining mill, in connection with which
he manufactures sash and doors to
ordi r. He 'has also laid the founda
tion of a genearl system of water works
for the city the water for which is now
pumped by the sngine in his mill.
Educational facilities ra rerr geod,
the state Agricultural college, with
a full compliment of erScieat teachers,
is situated at this place, aud in addi
tion there are a district schools that
are well sustained. The towa is witll
supplied Tith churches and the gene
ral morals of the community is good.
The Presbytericn, MethcJist North
and South, Episcopal, Evangelical,
Christian and Catholics, all have or
ganizations and except the Christians
have church houses.
The Corvallis tc.Jrn site was located
by the late J. C Avery in i846.
Among the early settlers were J. L.
Mulkey and Johnson Mulkey who lo
cated their claims in the winter of
1 8-1 5 and 46; these we believe to be
the first permanent locations in the
county. In addition to these were
Arnold Fuller, T. M. Read, Jobn
Stewart, Nicholas Oivenby, S. K.
Brown, H. C. Lewis, W. F. Dixon
and others all who located in 1846.

The word "pnre" as applied to teas
from Japan and Chins, appears to be
an necessary to their sale as the omis
sion ot the mme word is to Indian
tea?, from the pimple fact that tea
can only be tea as if it is not tea, it
is pometliiiijc 0I90 and should be Hold
under a different name. The cause
need not be looked for, as it te simply
due to a too confiding public. The
middle man and retail dealer unit
in full force, and the sapient house
wife who would instanler rfjeot
"oleomargarine" or "buiteiine" tor
bntter, will most meekly accept b
mixture of willow or other leaves
highly faced with copperas and In digo
or Prussian bine, as pure green
tea, and this when infusion and a
slight knowledge of the tea leaf
would place all iu a pb'sitiori to test
the purity for themselves. Further
cheek is at band in a sediment pre
senting an appearance like ita adul
terant. From most counti ios com
plaints are frequent that "pure tea"
is unprocurable at any price. Sliil,
pure tea is manufactured, but how
much of it reaches the consumer of
China aud Japan teas as such, is the
question. By the time it has passed
from the bush to the factory, thence
to the middleman atd grocer, and
finally into the confiding drinker
its original identity would puzzle its
manufacturer to determine its class
certainly as regards Indian teas,
whose frequent mixings and trans
formation often destroy all trace of
its origin. Philadelphia Times.
The Gardner's Monthly gives in
substance the following good prac
tical directions for prauing orna
mental shrubs on the approach ot
spring. Indiscriminate cutting back
will not snswer the desired purpose.
Distinction must be made between
slow and vigorous growers, and be
tween thosS which bears flownrs on
old wood and those which flower on
new growth. Such as grow too
strone to flower well should be light
ly pruned, and in the same individ
ual the weakest shoots should be cut
in more severely than iho stronger
ones. Lilacs and the Pailadelnhus
bear flowers on the wood of last year,
and to prune them much now de
stroys the flowers, while the altheas
and others which flower on the yonng
wood eannot be too severely cut in.

he had oaught peering iu at a win

"Didn't I bear a woman yell in

tinued the policeman.
"Shouldn't wonder," returned the
maii, carelessly. "In fact I know
you did, ior I heard her myself."
"What's going on in ther?"
queried the policeman, peeping in.
"I guess he's licking iny wife,"
suggested the stranger.
"Do you live here ?" asked the
policeman in some astonishment.
"I used to, but Ikiuder fell ont o'
the habit lately," was the indifferent
"What kind of a roan are you to
stand out here and let another man
lick your wife?" demanded the police
"I think he can do it better than
I can," growled the stranger. "I

job, and if there's any one cm make
a success of it I'm not going to in
terfere with his fun, now you bet !"
"Who is the man ? Do you know
"Never saw htm before," replied
the stranger. "I guess he and she
Miinkshe is her husband."
"And she's your wife?"
"Sure! Only I've been away a lon2
time ship-wrecked, you know and
I just got home. I saw 'em at it,
and I thought I wouldn't interfere."
"Do you want me to arrest him?"
inquired the policeman, contempla
ting the returned husband in amaze
ment. "Just as yon like," returned the
other; "only don't mention my name
in the matter."
"But don't you propose to do any
thing about it?"
'Well, now yon just bet! Just as
soon as that man windf off that job
he's going to be dry, and if I've got
a quarter anywhere he's going to a
drink, and don't you interfere; now,

From the Detroit Free Press.
The cotton mills of the feouth are
getting so strong a hold upon West
ern markets for the coarser fabrics
that the New England manufactur
ers are crying out to be protected
against them. The Constitution for
bids putting a tariff upon home man
ufactures, otherwise Washington
would be crowded with a lobby de
manding laws which would prohibit
the West from buying other than
New England cotton. But in the
absence of an inter-Slate tariff, they
ask the railroads to diminish rates.
Transportation is of itself a tariff,
and the nigher the rates the higher
this tai iff The New England col
ton mills, therefore, demand a low
tariff from the railroad, just as they
accuse the old England cotton mills
of demanding a low tariff from the
consumer. The Southern mills hav
ing Utile or no transportation tariff
to pay on the raw material, and part
ly on account of the climate, which
makes it cheaper to live in the South,
and enables thero to employ cheap
labor, are gradually usurping the
Northwestern markets. New Eng
land will yet be clamoring for a con
stitutional amendment which will
sanction a tariff forbidding the De
troit and Chicago merchant to buy
Georgia and South Carolina cottons.
Cotton is no longer king. There is
two of him, and they are rivals.

Another of the bumbie industries,
of New York is the collection of
cigar stumps from street and gutter.
Some half a dozen Italians make a
busiaess of buying them from the
scavengers who live in the Italian
quarter of this city. An active boy
or giri will collect half a bushel of
stumps in an hour or so, the work
being done from daylight to eight
o'clock, and during that time, all thn
principal streets in the heart of the
city are gleaned, The children re
ceive no fixed price for the stumps,'
but ten or fifteen cents is usually
paid. The buyers wash the filthiest
and spread thtm out to dry. A day
or so later they are crumbled into
shreds, and are allowed to dry twenty-four
hours longer before bemg
packed in flour barrels aud shipped
to Nev York. A barrel of thisstump
tobacco is worth two dollars and a
half, but a few years a-;o, when thero
was a strong demand' for it in Phila
delphia, the Italian dryers received a
little more for it. The stumps werer
formerly made into snuff ,in Phila
delphia, but this filthy grade of to
bacco is uow bought by manufactur
ers of cigarettes and fine cut chew
ing tobacco. A wholesale tobac
conist of many years' experience de
clares that when the stump tobacco
is ground, bleached, flavored aud
made up into cigarette paper, no one
but an expert can detect the differ
ence between it and new I&ft. All
of which must be exceedingly pleas
ant for the cigarette cousumor.

How many of us remember while
we are passing to and fro in this
world that we are' either "scattering
seeds ot k indues for oar reaping by
by and by," or we are sowing' seeds
that will be gathered iu sadness.
How many lives are, sis it were, nfere
relics of an ended feast, fragments
which may be either left to waste or
taken up and made the most of, for
we cannot die just when we wish it
and because we wish it. The facts
may be very romantic, but it is a fact
that too large a dinner or a false
step on the stairs kills much moro
easily than a sweet sorrow. Nature
compels us to live, even with broken
hearts, as with lopped-off members.
True, we are never quite the 8am
again, riever complete human being,
but we can live Uuc Christian lives,
lives for self denial and do much for
the Master, and we can be ready to
meet Him, "when ho eorueth to make
up his jewels, his loved and his own."
A correspondent of the Farming
World claims that the best time to
prune fruit trees is just before the
sap begins to flow from February
to April, according to the latitude.
The wounds will then heal over rap
idly without leaving dead wood or
scars. The mxi best time is from
the middle to the last of June, when
the sap flows afresh and the trees
commence a second growth, but
heavy pruning should never be prac
tised in June. Much pruning may
be saved by picking aud rubbing off
superfluous sprouts during the grow
