Press Association The following from an exchange is a' int the sentiment expressed by all fie papers in the state, and it is a question that should be agitated until such an association is formed. "We need a Press Association in Oregon. Compared with other States the amount of public printing given to the Ore gon press amounts to nothing. In many other places the new laws passed by the legislatures are printed in two papers, of different politics in each county; unre deemed pledges are published by pawnbrok ers before sold; application for the pardon of criminals, for license to sell liquor, and many other things of importance to the community are all advertised at least four times, the public being benefited and the press, which does so much gratuitous hard work for the good of the State, .-eceivimj a alight encouragement. If the Oregon pub lishers had the good sense of their confrere : elsewhere, they would organize a Press Association, and aside from the good that would come from intercourse socially and in business, they would be in a position to go to the legislature and demand their rights and obtain favors." The Oregon press labors under another serious disadvantage. The number of papers here is much greater in proportion to the population and business than in any of the older States. They must charge correspondingly higher for subscrip tion and advertising, but in trying to get what little business there is, they have in aome instances reduced prices below what would pay in much more populous communi ties, and admit free of charge notices of various kinds that aie paid for in ne arly very other country. Tee Mother Hubbard Must G j The Mother Hubbard must go. If Mother Hubbard does not step in and re deem her old clothes and place them on the retired list, there is going to be trouble. Turn the Mother Hubbard out? As a bal loon it is right and en regie, but as a drees, it is a lock-stiched, gathered, puffed and ruffled failure, and a withering reproach to the boasted culture of the nineteenth cen tury. The Mother Hubbard dress is all ski t and no waist a sort of calico rag bag, gathered at the neck, and drifting away oft' into nowhere, and floating along after the wearer like a spanker sail in a dead calm. If the Mother Hubbard dress is au old fash ion rejuvenated, we can only say, in the posthumous language of the departed poet, "Shoot it." From the ashes of the dead past rises the Mother Hubbard dress, like phoenix, and not so much like a phoenix, either, as like a coffee sack, held in place at the swan-like throat by a silver arrow, and trimmed with point lace and other frills. There is nothing like it on the face of the globe, unless it be another dress of the same awful pattern. Texas Sif tings. necessity t be mother of Invention. The latest from the columns of an ex change says: Julius Moshburger, of Mo'al la, Clackamas county, has found a new use for hops. He having a lot on hand he could not sell, thought he would feed them to his cow. On the first milking, he found the milk tasted very much like lager beer, and being very fond of that article, he conclud ed cot to feed his cow with anything elre but hops, and to his great surprise and joy be fonnd pure and unadulterated beer. i 1 Sprlns Ooi.

The daily is almost seventeen years old and has every appear ance of prosperity. Samp Henderson was in Portland this week preparing to open a billiard room and cigar anil notion stand in connection witu his barber shop m this city. The Benton L'-ad-r appears this week in an enlarged form, and one day earlier in the week, the publication day having been changed to Thursdry instead of Friday. Miss Nellie Blair returned from St. Helen's Hall, Portland, Wednesday evening, and will probably not return to her sludies this season, as she is afflicted with a throat disease. Hon. R. A. Benscll and wife came up from Salem Sunday where they have been attending the session of the legislature. We acknowledge a pleasant call from Mr. B. on Monday. A needle which a Chicago drummer rau into his hand ten years ago hits just come out at one side of his face. The Philadel phia Call says it spent the last nine years in getting through his cheek. W.

Reports from all parts o. the country are to the effect that fall grain never appeared better, and a bountiful har vest is confidently expected. M. L. Trapp, of Little Elk, this county, made us a pleasant ca.i one day this week. From him we learn that the roads in that section of the county are in a very bad condition, and dangerous to travelers. Brink & Wright, the mail contractors, had a very valuable horse so badly injured on this road one day last week that he will in all probability die from the effects of the injury. Before people condemn the contractors for the irregular mails be tween this place and the Bay, they had best know something about the condition ot the roads. - THE MASK BALL. The masquerade ball as given by the Corvallis Hook and Ladder Company last Friday evening was a decided success, so ciallv. financially, and otherwise.

The following are a few of my reasons: First Taking no risks 1 can afford to sell at a lower rate of profit. Second I will not be at the expense of keeping a book-keeper (seventy-five dollars a mouth.) Third 1 will not have to spend a week out of every month trying to make collections. Fourth I will have time to give more attention to my business and consequently give better satisfaction to my customers, and finally I solicit only cash trade. J. M. Nolan. Cor vail s Fish Market. Marion Cook keeps constantly on hand a fine lot of Columbia river salmon, sme't, perch, flounders aud sea bass, at b; market one door south of C. D. Rayburn's. Give him a call. Bring it Back.

Corvallis Cooking Club, No. 1, composed of several of the younger ladies of the city, met at the resideuce of Hon. John Burnett list Tuesday afternoon. This club claims the honor of the tirst organization and en titled to the appellation of No. 1. Several new builgings are almost com pleted this early in the season, in our thriving city. Many more will be built during the summer. Mr. Thos. Graham has begun the erection of a building to be used as a drug store. Evidently Corvallis will enjoy a building boom the coming summer. A number of the circus performers at the masquerade last Friday evening are some what the" worse for their performance: Ed. Johnson, an ameteur, in attempting a pro fessional feat sustained a fall which for a time was thought would iesult seriously. We are pleased to state that it was not so serious as anticipated, and that he wi'l be all right io a few days. Wells Waitings. Wells, Or., February 24th, 1885. Editor Gazette: 1 copy the following from the Leader of last issue: "A kind hearted young lady, knowing full well that poor editors are often half fed sent us one day this week a liberal slice of most delicious cake. The best of it was that the cake was made with her own fa'r hands and not by a servant. Knowing this fact gave it an additional flavor that it would not otherwise have possessed." Yum Yum. I happened to know all about that piece of cake. It was some that was left over from the dance at this place on the 13th inst., and the person that made it did not happen to have any servants. The next dance here I have t;he promise from a kind hearted young lady of a piece of stale cake for yon Mr. Edftor. The girls here since the Leader's last issue have come to the conclusion not to send any more stale cake to Editors as it has a tendency to soften the brain. v Hank. Buena Vista Item j.

There has another of Oregon's pioneers left us for other climes, in the person of Jessie Starr, who died February 20th, at the residence of R. Belknap, at the good old age of SO. Mr. Starr was amongst the early settlers of Benton county. Dr. J. L Taylor has been very low bat is gaining strength again slowly. For the proverbial heal thfulness of Ore gon there is considerable sickness in the country, but then it is principally amongst the aged. Data. DID. ALEXANDER. At the family residence in Kings Valley, Benton county, Oregon, on the 22d inst., of typhoid fever, Winnie, only daughter of T. F. and Frankie Al exander, aged 9 years, 10 months and 4 days. Little Winnie was a blight, intelligent and affectionate child; and was dearly be loved by a large circle of relatives and ac quaintances. An invalid from infancy, her affletious had but strengthened the ties which bouud her to the home circle, and rendered the separation more painful; but He who doeth all things well has taken her to Himself in her innocency and purity; and certainly she is far happier now than if left on earth. The bereaved parents have the heartfelt sympathy of all who knew little Winnie. Com. WHITEHEAD. At Fossil, Wasco county, Oregon, February 13, 1885, Mrs. E. W. Whitehead, aged about 25 years.

At the Summit, this county, February 21, 1885, Mr. Vineyard Wells arid Miss Ida Mays. The State Census. The laws of the state of Oregon require a census be taken every ten years. This law was enacted in pursuance of the mandate of the constitution declaring that "the legisla tive assembly shall, in the year 1885, and every tenth year thereafter, cause an enu meration to be made of the population of the state. " Under this provision the state cen sus falls midway between the censuses taken by the United States, which gives us an enu meration every five years. Hitherto, how ever, the state censuses have been very im perfectly taken. We ought this year to strive for a better result. The law places the work in the hands of the assessors of the several counties. They are required, at the time of assessing their respective counties, "to take an enumeration of the inhabitants and the industrial prod ucts of the same." But the schedule of "in dustrial products" which the law requires to be tilled out includes only tho products of agriculture, No special compensation is provided for doing this census work though of course the amount which the assessors will receive through per diem compensation will be increased. We have had two of these censuses here tofore, tut neither of them h: s been thor ough enough to be of real value. The cen sus is not a specialty, but only an incident, of the assessment. It is not, therefore, kept in view by the assessors as a leading object. Yet it should be; and assessors may proper ly be reminded of the duty. The older and greater states are gradually increasing the scope of their census work from the mere enumeration of the inhabit ants required by their constitutions to the procurement of minute statistical informa tion similar in variety and character to that covered by the national census. The ground of this is the perception that such informa tion is of invaluable assistance to home in interests. Perception of the same fact here ought to lead to a careful and complete "enu meration of the inhabitants and industrial pursuits" of our state. Oregonian. House bill No. 66, introduced by Speaker . Keady, of this county, and which passed both branches of the legislature and approved by the Governor. Tho full text of the bill as finally passed will be read with interest by all.
