six feet and six inches tall. Is there
any state that can beat or equal this?

in this city. The company, played in
behalf of the members of the G. A. R.

first production on Monday night was
"Held by the Enemy," and on Tues
day evening they rendered in a very
creditable way the famous play en
titled "The Silver King," closing on
Wednesday evening with "The Phoe
nix." This company ranks among the
best that visit this city and cert linly
deserved a much better patronage than
they received while here.

Lane county: Telt Burnett and wife
and oldest son, O. G. Hopkins, S. L.
Henderson and family, Prof. Bristow

have heretofore spent their vacation
Two Charges. Last Sunday a dis
pute arose between J oseph Bryant and
Fred Schmidt over some hogs-and as
usual terminated in a fight. Smith
caused the arrest of Bryant who was
brought to. Corvallis' on Monday and
plead guilty to the charge of assault on
Tuesday before Justice Carlisle and
was fined $15. Bryant then had
Schmidt arrested on the charge of as
sault with a ' deadly weapon. Smith
was tried Wednesday and acquitted.
S. T. Jeffreys appeared for the state
in the latter .'case and W.E. Yates ap
peared for the defendant. -
Enterprise. The Corvallis Flour
ing Mills Co., show a commendable
spirit of enterprise by ' erecting "a free
ferryboat which will cross the river
near their mill and is to be used for
the purpose of. bringing wheat, across
from Lane county. Parties bringing
wheat to this mill. will be set across the
river both ways free of charge. This
will be quite a saving to the farmers
and will no doubt be the means of
bringing a greats deal of wheat- over
from Lane county that has heretofore
went to Albany. .
The Weather. - "Greut Scott!
Isn't it hot!" This was the common
expression on the streets last Wednes
day and Thursday, when the ther
mometer registered 95 in the shade.
It is consoling to know, however, that
while we are in the frying pan here
our friends in the central and eastern
states are in the fire. Wednesday
and Thursday were the hottest days
we have had this season, but we can't
complain, for our friends above men
tioned experience much greater heat
than we do; tlie mercury ranging from
100 to 1160 in the shade most every
day, and the hot, dry wind blowing
from the fields of sand that surround
them in a way that almost roasts them.
They have no mountains near by on
whose towering peaks the snow lies
the year round, and where the weary,
over worked can go and pose in the
shade of the lofty pines and fish foi
trout in a rippling stream that dashes
down the mountain side from the snow
and ice that lies above they have no
grand old Pacific ocean on whose beach
tiiey m:y inhale the sea-breeze and en
joy surf bathing. We have all these
luxuries that nature has endowed this
state with; such luxuries as money can
not buy for any other state and which
are enjoyed here by the rich and poor
alike. Come to Oregon if you have
money to invest and invest it in the
Willamette valley, then in half a days
ride you can be either at tne beach or
among the snow capped mountains.
Come to Oregon if you are poor and
take up a piece of land, erect a log
cabin (if nothing better) and till the
rich soil where the sun neither parches
your face nor blisters your feet. Come
to Oregon if you are seeking pleasure
and pitch your tent in the mountains
where fish and game are plentiful.
Come to Oregon where the fields yield
abundant, trees are loaded with fruit,
the hungry are fed and the naked
clothed, the women are beautiful and
the men are strong. Come to Oregon,
won't you come.
Gathering Specimens. Mr. Mor
gan, of the Portland Chamber of
Commerce, was in this city this week
making the necessary arrangements
whereby the said Chamber of Com
merce may secure as many samples as
possible of grain, fruit, vegetables, etc.,
produced in this county, which will be
sent east about the first of September
as an advertisement for this section of
the state. Mr. W. H. Hartless has
been authorized to receive the speci
mens of Benton county and he desires
us to inform the farmers that when
they come to town to bring a sample
of something grown on their farm and
it will be very thankfully received.
The. farmers should remember that
this will be a direct help to them, as
it will undoubtedly be the means of
bringing many new residents to the
state and increase the value of their
land. Let every one who can con
tribute anything do so and thus help
to make up the finest lot of specimens
ever gathered together and and exhib
ited. The New Sawmill. The Friendly
sawmill which was burned last week
is to be rebuilt and will be a much
more pretensious structure than the
one was that was recently reduced to
ashea. The insurance adjuster wa
here this week and has paid the
amount for which the mill was insured
in full, Mr. Friendly went to Port
land. Mouday, to arrange for the ma
chinery to be used in the new mill.
The old mill had a capacity of but
15,000 feet of lumber per day, while
the new one will cut twice that amount
and will give employment for more
men than did the old one. The con
tract has been awarded to J. H. Camp
bell & Son, of Albany, and they will
commence work as soon as the debris
is cleared, away from the old sightj
which will be done by the first of next
week, and it is intended that the mill
shall be in operation by the first of the
A Pleasant Trip. A party of
ladies and gentlemen left this city Sat
urday morning for a trip to the summit
of Mary's Peak, at which place they
arrived about 9 o'clock Sunday morn
ing. Those wh o were so fortunate as
to take the trip are Mrs. McNuIty,
Mrs. Arnold, Misses Calloway, Hoff
man, Lulu Smith, Wilson, Messrs. B.
W. Johnson, J. O. Wilson, J. B. Wal
ker, Harry Arnold and Matt Irvine.
A trip to the Peak is one of the most
pleasant that can be taken, and when
the summit is reached a magnificent
view is obtained of the valley of Wil
lamette below on the east and of the
Pacific ocean on the west.
The Excursion to the Bay. The
excursion from Albany to Newport last
Sunday was a very pleasant affair.
Three coaches were filled from Albany
and Corvallis and the Marine band of
this city accompanied the excursion
and dispersed some excellent music,
which greatly helped to make, the day
an enjoyable one for all. The day
was spent in fishing and bathing and
the usual amusements to be enjoyed
at the sea-side. The steamer Mischief
made. a trip out over the bar and gave
those so desiring an opportunity to
fish for sea fish. On the return trip a
very disgraceful fight occurred in
which Coskey, a blacksmith of this
city, knocked James Horning down
with a beer bottle. Coskey was
brought before Justice Carlisle and
plead guilty to assault and was fined
$20 and costs, amounting in all to $30.
It Would Pay. A Corvallisite who
has been rusticating at Yaquina Bay,
tells of finding second . crop strawber
ries, both wild and cultivated. The
wild berries are small, very red
and exceedingly sweet. The cultiva
ted or "tame" strawberries which are
now yielding a second crop are some
what smaller than those obtained at
first crop but quite as delicious in
flavor. Early strawberries always
command a good price why not late
berries as well1 If attention was paid
to the cultivation of these berries with
a view to obtaining a second crop
where the climate and soil are adapt
ed to it, might not the industiy be
more profitable, and the land in such
localities more valuable
Waiting for Wheat. The Ben
ton County Flouring mills of this city
have shut down for a few weeks,
awaiting the arrival of the new crop of
wheat, having ground up all the wheat
they had on hand. They have found
a ready market for the large amount
of flour made by them during the past
season, which has been about 25,000
barrels, to grind this it required some
thing near 100,000 bushels of wheat,
there being a little over four bushels of
wheat to a barrel of flour. It is
thought that the new crop will com
mence coming in in a couple of weeks
or by the middle of next month at the
outside, when they expect to again
start up and intend to turn out even
more flour the coming season than
they did the past.
Married. July 22nd. by Rev. Dr.
Thompson, E. H. Glass of Linn coun
ty and Miss Nellie Fullertou of Alsea
valley, Benton county. The ceremony
took place . at the residence of the
bride's parents and was a quiet affair,

Pronounced Hopeless, Yet Saved.
From a letter written, by Mrs. Ada E.
Hurd, of Groton, S. D., we quote: " "Was
taken with a bad cold which settled on my
lungs, cough set in and finally terminated in
Consumption. Four doctors gave up saying
I could live but a short time. I gave my
self up to my Savior, determined if I could
not stay with my friends on earth. I would
meet my absent ones above. My husband
was advised to get, Dr. King's New Discov
ery fot Consumption, Coughs and Colds. I
gave it a trial, took in all eight bottles; it
has cured ma and thank God I am now a
well and hearty woman." Trial bottle free

President Arnold's Visit. We had
the pleasure of a visit from Prof. B. L. Ar
nold, president of the State Agricultural
College of Oregon, ou Monday, who sailed
on Tuesday by steamer Australia for the
Sandwich Islands, intending to return in
some three weeks' time. . He is evidently a
faithful and worthy guardian of the inter
eats of the growing and important institu
tion over which he presides. His duties
have been constant for the past three years,
and the little recreation he may obtain by
his vacation we thfnk has been well earned.
We will be pleased to note his safe return.
