The recent heavy frosts that did ex
tensive damage to the remaining, un

did the grape crop much harm through

with which he made his bed on the bank
of Mill creek. It was noticed that the
dog had been keeping lonely watch on
the otherwise deserted blankets which
gave rise to a rumor that Blanchard was
drowned and a fruitless search was made
for him. He turned up later several
miles out of Salem looking for his dog.

Adolph Witzel.
Another of those occurrences which
have the tendency of causing a tinge of
Badness to enter the student heart and
bring tears; and grief into the family
of the unfortunate one has occurred. at
the OAC. "On Tuesday the national flag
floated at half mast from the staff on the
eollege building, announcing the fact
that Adolph Witzel, a student, and a
member of the freshman class was dead.
Monday at noon the youth breathed his
last, as a result of an attack of appendici
tis. " The next day, all recitations were
excused during the third and fourth
hours in the morning,' the cadets, bat
talion band and lady students marched
with solemn step to the home of the un
fortunate student in Job's Addition, and
after a "short ceremony the remains were
escorted by the cadets to the - depot,
and they were taken by train to Turner,
near which place his parents reside, and
interment was made at Twin Oak ceme
tery on Wednesday.
A. week ago last Monday, young Wifc-
zel became ill while in his classes and
found it necessary to seek his room. "Dr.
Altman was called and aa the boy con
tinued to grow worse, Dr. Pernot was
called for onsultatation.
The case being appendicitis and of- so
severe a nature, it was decided that an
operation would be necessary, as a simi
lar case in the person of the six-year-old
daughter, of W. 8. Gardner had been
performed several days before with en
tire success. With the consent'of the
parents, who had arrived in the mean
time, Dr. Wallace, of Albany, was sum
moned, and on Saturday morning the
operation was performed in the presence
of the Corvallis physicians. In the ap
pendix was found a hard substance, to
gether with mnch inflammation and
peritonital complications. The opera
tion failed to better the youth's condi
tion and at noon, Monday, his last
breath was spent.
Adolph Witzel was born in Turner 16
years ago. With two brothers he re
sided in Job's Addition, having come to
Corvallis to attend the OAC. He was a
bright, intelligent lad, and made many
friends while in school. He was an
earnest Christian young man, his last
words being those of religious consola
tion with his father and mother and Dr.
Thompson. .
About Lotig Tom.
A dispatch from Monroe states that
the work of clearing the Long Tom has
been discontinued, owing to the rise in
the river. The task of felling timber
and blasting had been practically com
pleted, but according to the reports of
those who have been on the ground,
there is now much work for the snag
boat in removing debris and other ob
stacles. :
When this is done it is probable that
the county of Benton will be notified to
remove the bridges spanning the stream
at Liverpool and Bundy's. Until that
time nothing will be done in the matter
by the county court aside from devising
and maturing plans. ,
It is probable that a ferry will be put
in operation at -Bundy's bridge until
spring. This seems to be the most prac
tical and. businesslike solution of the
matter. Practical, because the present
bridges will have to be removed imme
diately upon the order of the govern
ment and by the time the report in the
matter can reach the secretary of war
and be returned, December will be here.
The court could order bids advertised for
at its January session and open them at
the February term, and spring would
be nearly upon us. Even if work could
be commenced in December it would be
nearly impossible to haul lumber during
the winter and the added cost would pay
for buying and operating a ferry.
' The courtis in receipt of many in-
quiries from foreign contractors who are
anxious to enter bids. - It ia probable
that draw bridges will notbe built
The cost of construction is great and the
expense of employing a bridge tender
would be never ending. .

It Can fee Profitably crown In Ore son,
Last spring the Union Gazetto hinted
that the raising of sorghum is to be tne
of the coming industries of Oregon.
This statement was not a mere guess bat
was based on facts secured from the lead'
ing agricultural experiments of the state.
At that time the professors at the ex
periment station sent out a large amount
of seed to larmers in every county in the
state, for the fanners to plant and report
as to their success. The seed was fur
nished by the agricultural department
at Washington.
Some four weeks ago the samples of
sorghum grown began to be received at
the college chemical - department
from all part of the state, samples, in
fact from every county in Oregon. An
announcement was made at the time
that the result of the experiment would
appear in these columns. -
The professors have been busy in the
analysis of the plant and the results
have been much better than they ex
pected. The plants received are luxuri
ant in growth, being excelled in this re
spect by none grown in the middle or
eastern states, and in their content of
sugar,, only by the cane grown in its
native Louisiana soil. -
Sorghum cane that contains six per
I cent, of sugar can be profitably worked;
that received by the college people con
tamed an average of 10 per cent, sugar,
while some of it reached as high as 14
per cent, '
These facts prove that sorghum can e
can be grown in Oregon, and that profit
ably. Our state consumes far more
sugar than she produces from the beets
grown in Eastern Oregon, and with the
aia oi sorghum cane, we can grow oar
own sugar mnch cheaper than we can
now get it, bringing thousands of dol
lars more revenue to oar producers, and
lurnismng employment to a large num
ber of our people.
A New Pkysiclan.
Corvallis has a new physician in the
person of Dr. B. A. Cathey, who moved
here recently from Woodburn. While
a stranger in this locality, Dr. Cathey is
well known in other sections of the state
where he is highly esteemed as a phy
sician and a c itize n. Until his ' resigna
nation last summer, he has been pro
fessor of physiology in the medical de
partment of Willamette university since
its transfer from Portland to Salem sev
eral years ago. .
. The Woodburn Independent express
es regret at Dr. Gathey's departure from
that city, and says:
Dr, B. A. Cathey, whd for the oast
nine years has been one of our most
substantial citizens, has turned over his
practice and disposed of his dwelling
house to Dr. Mc Gorkle and will leave
today for Corvallis, where he will prac
tice medicine and his sons, Cecil and
George will attend college.
The departure of Dr. Cathey is a great
loss to Woodburn, in a medicinal and so
cial sense and in religious circles, having
been a strong prop to the Methodist
church of this city. '
. Not only is Dr. Cathey a
physician and surgeon of ability and
skill, but he is conscientious in the prac
tice of his profession. . In short, Dr.
Cathey is a man in every particular, has
commanded the highest esteem of this
community during his long residence
here, and his going from our midst is a
source of deep regret to our people, and
especially to those whose family physi
cian he has been for years. Mrs. Cathey
who has also been prominent in church
and social affairs, will also be greatly
missed, as well as the whole family, who
leave with the well wishes of alL ' They
will join the doctor at Corvallis in a few
days. .
A farewell reception was given Dr.
Cathey and family Tuesday evening in
the M. E. church, which was filled with
friends, and would have been crowded
with friends from the country if the
weather had permitted.
Captain Harts, United States engineer,
on having his attention called to the dis
patch from Newport, to the effect that 700
feet of the north jetty at the entrance to
Yaquina bay had been swept away by a
storm, informed the Oregonian that it
was doubtless the tramway connected
with the jetty which had been swept
away. There is no proDaDiuty mas any
of the jetty has been carried away, and,
as the jetty is entirely under water at the
outer end, damage to it, if any, could not
be seen. In building such jetties a tram-
wav ia constructed on piles, and from this
track the rock which forms the jetty is
dumped into the water. The tramway is
not removed when the' jetty is completed,
and after a few years is wrecked and de
stroyed. If the idea that only a section
of the disused tramway at Yaquina bay
was swept away is correct, no damage
has been done and no loss incurred. The
board ot United States engineers, which
is preparing a report on the desirability
or advisability of deepening the channel
entrance to Yaquina bay, at an expense
of about $1,000,000, will - meet again
about the mibdle of next month, when
the report will be completed and forward
ed to the chief of engineers.
