A Magnificent Success.
The Corvallis Water Co. have this week
put their new pump into place and have
begun working the same. It is so arranged
that usually the wter will be pumped into
the task from where it is carried iuto the
mains as formerly, but in case of lire the
water is shut off from the tank and pumped
directly into the mains. The first test of
the pump in filling the tank was made
M'ednesday morning when the tank, holding
15,000 gallons, was filled in thirty minutes.
In the evening the water was shut off from
the tank and the hose companies attached
their hose to the fire plugs, when a most
satisfactory test was had. As many as
three streams were playing at the same
time in different parts of town, all working
magnificently. The streams farthest away
from the pump 3eemeil to work as well as
those nearer. It is uuiTersally agreed that
this is a grand public improvement, and the
enterprising incorporators deserving of suc
cess. Another test will be given to-morrow,
Saturday, evening, for the inspection of the
Fine Wheat .
Sol King left at this office this week a few
stalks of wheat measuring 7 feet in height,
well headed and with every indication of a
very heavy yield. It is what is called the
Centennial wheat, and grew on his farm
near this city, where he has twenty acres of
the same kind, and as he says on the poor
est soil on the place. This wheat seven ! asking how to get rid of gnats.

An Arizona man has stopped taking an
agricultural paper. He wrote to the editor
twenty acres, and is the product of thorough
cultivation without the aid of fertilizers.
Last season Mr. King harvested over 50
bushels to the acre from this same wheat.
He informs us that he sent a few stalks of
the same to New York where there were
other samples of the same variety of wheat
from all other parts of the globe, and that
his was by several inches taller and better
filled than any there. If more of Benton
county farmers would cultivate their soil
more thoroughly as Mr. King does, more
satisfactory crops would be reaped.
Dont Do It.
Bill Nye says: "Don't attempt to cheat
an editor out of a year's subscription to his
paper or any other sum. Cheat the minis
ter, cheat the doctor, cheat the lawyer,
cheat anybody and everybody, but if you
have any regard for future consequences,
don't fool with the printer. He will get
even with you and more too. You will be
up for office sometime, or want some public
favor for yourself or some of your friends,
and just when you think your luck is a
"thing of beauty and joy forever," the
printer will open up on you and knock your
air castles into a cocked hat at the first fire.
He'll subdue you, and then you'll cuss your
stupidity for a driveling idiot, go and hire
some man to knock you down and then
kick you tor falling:"
