At Portland, last Tuesday,. President Bloss delivered a lecture before the state horticultural society. His subject was "Poilenation." Prof. Coote has commenced an experi ment to determine the cause of the cnrl-leaf of the peach. It is hoped that this experi ment will be the means of discovering some preventive of the disease. The horticultural department has recently planted in its experiment orchard forty three varieties of pears, many of which are of quite recent introduction. This makes in all about seventy fine varieties of pears now growing in the testing orchard. The object is to ascertain those varieties which are best suited to the climate of Oregon, both as to the production of fruit and resistance to disease. In addition to this, twenty new varieties of apples have been added to the orchard, making 12 varieties of apples under test'. The farmers' short course (free) opened last Wednesday.

Early in the morning the boys take a run of several miles, after which a quick cold bath and a good rub is taken. Break fast is then eaten with justice to the cook. After breakfast kthe boys proceed to their regular school duties. In the afternoon a practice game is played and much interest is taken in this particular part of the train ing.

The project of building the electric motor line from Port land to Beaverton in this county is again revived. The plan now adopted is to use the West Portland steam motor to the sum mit of the hill this side of Portland and then leave that line in a branch to Beaver ton. This will require only six miles of new road. A company of New York cap italists are the promoters. The question of subsidy is all that seems to be in the way o the extension this spring. The old donation of Col. T. R. Cornelius, being a block of over five hundred acres of the finest land in the county, is to be di vided and sold in small tracts. The Forest Grove canning company and electric light company put a mortgage on their plants this week to secure the pay ment of a note of $11,627.77 given te Cap tain R. H. Lamson last July. The City election at Forest Grove last Monday was a hot one. The issue was a lot of electric lights or few.

Louis Eberhart and Marion Johnson fol lowed with a guitar duet and responded to a well deserved encore. A reading by Miss Effie Handy and a cornet solo by Professor Kosebrook, which was really the event of the evening, concluded the program. The members then repaired to their hall where the third degree was conferred after which lunch was served by Hodes & Hall. The officers installed were as follows: A. W. Bowersox, C. P.; T. J.

This is due to the warm weather of the past few days which has caused the snow to melt in both the Cascade and Coast Ranges. Unless the temperature is reduced soon high water may be expected. The condition of ditches and sidewalks in the city show that Chief of Police Taylor has not been fretting away his official time, Some of the covered sewers have been op ened and cleansed of a mass of accumulated filth, while the open ditches have all been dug out so that now excellent drainage afforded throughout the town. W. E. and J. Fred Yates have a demo cratic uncle named S. P. Moss, whom Gov ernor Pennoyer Tecently appointed county judge of Lake county. How they can . put up with democratie uncles when it is said their republicanism is of such a nature that a window in the south side of their dwelling would not be tolerated is indeed hard to un derstand. The latest scheme devised by the Marine band to obtain the regular attendance at re- hersalsof its Jaembers matrimonially in dined is to invite their "best girls" to be present at all rehersals.' Thejscheme works wonderfully and the boys will soon be able to resume - their Sunday concerts and a marked improvement may be , expected in their musical progress generally. The report reached the streets Wednes day afternoon that a small beat had been picked up in the Willamette river opposite this place and the occupant probably drowned. Upon investigation it was learned DIED. KEESEE. At the - residence of William Knotts, on January 6, 1894, Miss Lizzie Keesee, aged 24 years, 6 months and 12 days. Miss Keesee was born about three miles north of Corvallis, on the farm purchased by her father when he.first located in Ben ton county in 1864. Near the house where she was born may yet be seen the remains of an old log cabin, in which was held the brst Oregon legislature. While .quite a child U-r parents move.! into town whure an opportunity was afforded of attending school, and siio continued her residence here until after her mother's death, which occurred in 1886; since that time she has resided with her brother, Wm. Knotts, on his farm about three miles from town. During Miss Keesee's residence 111 Cor vallis she gained many warm friends and after returning to her country home they became the recipients of her hospitality on numerous occasions; in act it became the rendezvous for the young people of Cor vallis for a number of years and her death will bring back to the memory of each, many pleasant recollections of her hospi tality. Miss Keesee was a lady of culture and refinement and was beloved by all for her many noble and generous traits of char acter. i he funeral sermon was delivered at the family residence by W. C. Kantner at 9:30 Sunday morning and, although the weather was very iuclement, a large number of her frieuds and neighbors accompanied the re mains to tne isewton cemetery where the final ceremonies were conducted by Rev.

Against a roan's happiness by his stomach the enemy may be pacified and brought speedily and easily to terms. That potent regulator of digestion, Hostetter's Stomach Bitters, disciplines the rebellious organ thoroughly. Indigestion arises from weak ness of the stomach and the food in it, for want of the power to digest, decomposes and acidifies, giving rise to heartburn, flatu lence and pain, besides a multitude of symptoms both changeful and perplexing. But peace soon reigns when 'the great stomachic is resorted to and used with per sistence. Dyspepsia gives rise to morbid discomposure of mind, and even sleepless ness and hypochondria in chronic cases. To the complete dismissal of these the Bitters is fully adequate.- Liver complaint, consti pation, debility rheumatism and malaria are completely subdued by this genial medicine.

The messenger was lost to view and for a few minutes all was still. Suddenly a streak of red was observed fleeting from the suburbs of town -down till it entered a house on Fifth and Monroe, and a voice was heard demanding "Brady." A door closed and the excitement grew. Later groups of young men were gathered on the corner discussing the situation with pale countenances but stern visages, while mes sengers flew hither and thither.

OREGON FOREVER. TWENTV-SIX OBJECTIONS BY LADD & TILTON. A bundle of objections to the allowance of offsets claimed bv cettain debtors of the in solvent banking house of Hamilton, Job & Co. were filed this week by Williams, Wood and Linchicum, as attorneys for Wm.rM., Chas. E. and J. W. Ladd, trustees under last will and testament of W. S. Ladd, de ceased. Objections to claims of T. Graham, Oeo. E. Fish, G. R. Farra and M. Schmidt were made on the ground that they were debts incurred by Zephiu and B. R. Job, as individuals, for services performed or for merchandised, to which the assetts of the bank were not properly applicable. In the claims of M. O. Heckart. teith and G. M. Harris, proof as to nature and character of offset was asked. George Anderson's claim for interest on a. San r rancisco signs draft was objected to. claiming that to avoid taxation the same had not been presented for payment. In those of John Burnett, W. H. Hall, John Weber & Co., J. M. Applewhite, R. E. Mulcahy, Wm. Toner, P. Avery and Simpson, Hus ton & Co., claims for offsets are made on checks obtained subsequent to the appoint ment of a receiver, or, if drawn prior to that time, had not been presented for pav- ment. Objectors ask for proof as to time and consideration of these claims. Minnie E. Lee, admidistratrix, objected to offset of promissary note signed by J. B. Lee dur his lifetime. Objections were made to the claims of R. E. Gibson, R. M. Davisson, Ij. H. Taylor, Hector Bros., W. H. Hartless, John Smith, J. C. Taylor, and W. S. MeFad den, for the reason that offsets claimed were in the nature of certificates of deposit assigned to claimants subsequent to the ap pointment of a receiver and ask for proof as to time and consideration of assignment and aver that the court has not the power to al low such setoffs when? the books of the bank do not show that tho title had passed. WHITE SPRITE OF CORVALLIS. One looking toward the west where the hills are covered with snow can see a white reindeer standing on a ridge of the foot hills. An observer, specially if he be some what imaginative can discern- the body. limbs and antlers of the snowy creature, lhis animal sentinel of the "heart of the valley" appears with every snow fall. It is associated with tho writer's earliest recol lection and stands "towering o'er the wreck of time" as clearly defined as in the days of long ago. Probably a bald spot on the mountain back of the creature's appar ent "stamping ground" causes the an pari' tion but only the too practical device upon such a common theory of so pretty an effect. R. L. Sabin, of the merchants' protective union has begun an. attachment suit against A. F. Hcrshner to recover claims due cred itors in Portland aggregating $2,395.49.
