A Profitable Runaway.
Last Monday afternoon the express team
took a httle spin, and in the course of their
ramblings ran onto the sidewalk and tore
away the unsightly and much abused iron
pump in front of Allen & Woodward's drug
store. The pump, situated as it was on
tbe sidewalk, has been the cause of many
unspeakable epithets by pedestrians on a
dark night when coming in contact with the
immovable thing. The downfall of the
aid pump is a source . of satisfaction to
every one. No damage to team or express
Visited the city.
Corvallis received quite a notable call one
day last week, not however from an influen
tial citizen, railroad official nor office holder,
but from one of those bold sheep-killers,
more particularly described as a coyote.
When first observed he was on the flat just
above town at the junction of Mary's river
and the "Willamette. Rather than cross the
river he started down one of the streets,
when David Osburn nave chase on horse
back, and who made it exceedingly tropical
for the varmint for a while until he finally
made his escape, bearing the marks of
Dave's cattle whip. It is barely possible
that he will visit our city again soon.

Corvallis has a regularly organized cook
ing club, which meets once a week. The
object of this club is to improve its fair
members in the -art of practical cooking.
Each member, on the day of the meeting,
prepares a dish of some kind and conveys it
to the place of meeting, where they in turn
"give their experience," for the mutual ben
efit of all. If all of their meetings are as
pleasant, and their cooking as perfect as at
the residence of Miss Kate Carlile last
Wednesday afternoon, we are of the opinion
that improvement in the culinary art is out
of the question. Long live the Corvallis

state Board of Agriculi ure
A bill to provide for the organization of a
State Board of Agriculture, to promote the
agricultural and other industrial interssts of
the state, encourage immigration, and make
appropriations therefor, has passed both
house and senate, and now awnits the signa
ture of the Governor to become a law.
The bill appropriates $5,000 annually for
the next, two years to the State Board of
Agriculture, to bo used in the award of
premiums. It also provides that the State
printer shall do the necessary printing for
the society, to advertise the resources of
the State, make announcement of fairs, etc.
It also provides that thirty days after the
passage of the act the Governor shall ap
point eight resident citizens of the State,
who, together with four persons elected by
the State Agricultural Society, shall consti
tute a State Board of Agriculture. Twenty
days after appointment they shall
meet in the Capitol building and elect a
president, secretary, and Treasurer, who
shall each hold his office one year. The
members of the board shall organize them
selves into four classes, of three members
each, one class to serve one year, one to
serve two, three, and four years respective
ly, and they shall make their own constitu
tion, by-laws and rules. . Their regular
place of meeting shall be in the Capitol
building. They shall have the management
of the State fair, appoint officers, etc.
Their secretary shall make an annua state
ment of their acts and financial standing to
the Governor. The State does not make
itself responsible for any debts of the
society out side of the $5,000 per year ap
Corvallis Water Works.
A company has recently been formed and
incorporated for the purpose of supplying
the city with first-class water works, to be
in working order by the first of May, or
possibly sooner. It is the intention of the
company to procure a pnmp with a capacity
of supplying water for a city three times
the present size of Corvallis. The incor'
porators are Dr. G. R. Farra, Wm. Pitman,
W. B. Chase and O. R. Additon.
Monroe, Oregon, Feb. 16, 1885.
There was last week in Monroe a feat per
formed which we suppose in medical science
was of uo uncommon occurrence, but, to
the unsophisticate it was truly a wonder.
It was the extraction of a live animal from
the body of a living man. This animal is
familiarly known to the Ethereal Medico
Cork Screw Latin . scholar as the Teania
Solum, or the Bothirocephalus Latus, but
to the common intellect it is known by the
euphonious name of tape worm. It is con
ceded in natural science to be a parasite
with many qualities in general common to
the mistleto found growing on White Oak
timber, but it is Si Geuerees in one Bense.
It is formed of segments and each of those
segments contain within itself the full pow
ers of self-production, and those segments
can be easily severed from the parent trunk
without any apparent injury to either.
We will refer the dubious and doubtful to
Dr. Wortman, the extractor. Tins one
was found by actual measurement to be
over 21 teet long. The only inference we
drew from the facts, was, that if as peace
able and quiet a person as Mr. W. Mail
seems to be has such things in him, then
there must be people within the knowledge
of all ot us, who are chuck full of centi-
peecla, tarautulas, rattlesnakes and alliga
tors. There is a new firm of M. D.s in town.
Dr. F. Wortman has associated with him
Dr. G. H. Flett. We wish them success as
they are both studious and careful.
1 he firm of Wilhelm & Looney are pre
paring to rebuild their storehouse that fell

prospect of spring trade demands more
There is an oversight in our e fficient and
courteous miller in not having sufficient
flour on hand for home consumption.
There seems to be a disease among the
horses in this community that has proven
fatal in many instances. It seems to be in
many cases very much like the distemper
that is quite common all over the country,
but for some cause it is more fatal this year.
Mr. Wm. Wyatt, living one mile north of
Philomath, has suffered severely by the
disease, losing eleveu or twelve head, some
of them were excellent hor-:es. Some were
young auiinals uubrokeu, hence they were
harder to manage than those which were
broken. It is thought by thoie that have
been long in this country that the severe
snow-storm this winter, uncommon to this
climate,' has been the cause. It has proven
much worse for horses that have been out
in pasture than those in stable. Stock has
not suffered alone, as there is a co'd or
cough, almost an epidemic, going around
through the country among the people, old
and youug, that has been very severe since
the storm., and there is scarcely an observer
in Oregon, but what has noticed in the past
that after a snow storm, severe colds and
aud sickness occur.
The winter wheat iu this part of the
county looks very tine. A good prospect
for a large crop at the coming harvest.
What the remuneration of the husbandmen
as to price will be for labor is yet in the
future. Farmers are looking and wishing,
and for aught I know, praying for good
weather, so that they may be able to get in
the spring crop in goad time. We are glad
to learn that the ruling price o." grain for the
last year has not altogether discouraged the
agriculturalist, but ths full number of acres
will be sown this year and wait the result
as to the price. It seems to me that it
would be the part of wisdom fr r the agri
culturalist to change a little from the old
plan of raisiug all wheat and oats and raise
other cereals and vegetables; crops that
will not be so hard on the land, and will in
time lie mom remunratwe than the policy
that has been pursue.! by farmers iu general.
There is a piece of land now within the cor
rate limits nf the city of philomath that to
my knowledge has raised a crop of wheat or
oats each year for thirty years, this policy
without reat will wear out the best land iu

Tne Waeat Market.
Liverpool, Jan. 8, 1885.
From Hausman, Kufeke & Co., we quote
Last week our market has been char
acterized by great activity and considerable
speculation of outsiders. Under these in
fluences aided by large consumptive de
mand, wheat for forward shipment has
advanced 3-6 per quarter, and spot wheat
about 8d per cental from the boUom.
California flours are about cleared from
the market. Walla Walla flours are still
fairly plentiful and are held for more
Minnesota Patents are scarce and sell
readily at from 33-6 to 34. Bakers grades
are 2 higher.
First rate Winter Wheat Patents have
advanced less than other kinds, and 1 ad
vance is hardly obtainable. Extra Fancy
and Fancy are 1-6 higher and the advance
is freely paid.
Hungarian flour is scarce and exceeding
ly firm; it is 2-6 higher from the lowest.
Imports for the week ending January 3rd,
are about 318,864 qrs., which is about the
average, making the total imports from
Sept. 1st, 5,480,901 qrs.
A circular from the same firm dated San
Francisco, February 9th, says:
There have not been any changes in the
Markets on this Coast since our last issue,
but the London and Liverpool Markets have
again declined, from 3 to 6 pence a quarter,
making business in wheat between here and
Europe quite impracticable.
Farmers here are not willing to take a
less price for their grain, no matter up er
down. Market across the water, and ocean
freights remain in about the same position.
This makes it bad for all concerned, and
busiuess is once more at a standstill. We
quote wheat to-day, at from $1.27J to
$1.32, as to grade, and freights 40 to 42-6,
per Iron, U. K.

Is It Not True? There can be no argu
ment as to the qualities essential to a per
fect remedy for the ills arising from a dis
ordered or inaotive condition of the Liver,
Stomach and Bowels. Everyone will admit
that it should be perfectly safe for old and
young of both sexes, at any aud all times;
that it should be acceptable both to the
taste and the stomach; that it should never
fail to act promptly and thoroughly yet
painlessly, and should give strength to those
organs. It is now well known that Syrup
of Figs possesses those qualities in a pre
eminent degree. Allen & Woodward are
agents for this place.
