We call attention to the new registra
tion law of Oregon aud all should mem
ember that every voter in this state, be

his county ltween the first Monday in
January, and 5 o'clock p. m. of the loth
day of May of each year in which a gen
era! state election is held. The law pro
vides that every elector must register,
either by appearing in the office of the
county clerk or by appearing before a
justics of the peace or notary public.
Under this law registration will be made
free to th county by the clerk, but it

On i readers will remember the lawsuit
recen tly contested in Justice Brysons
court, to which the city of Philomath
and J. W. Ingle were parties, and the
amount involved was f 1.75. Mr. Ingle
was his own attorney, and the case was
decided in his favor. In addition to the
1 1.75, a cost of $59.80 was charged to the
city of Philomath, The city's attorneys,
E. L. Bryan and Weathrford and

An amusing incident" happened a short
distauce out in the country, on Tuesday
night. An old farmer living out there,
on walking out into his yard and gazing
across the expanse of fields and meadows
beheld a spectacle in the distance that
came near astounding him. Away out
there, shiuing like a ball of fire just over
the horizon, could be seen a star, so
brilliant and luoiinois that its sister con
stellations were but objects of pity.
"Good Lor, Mary, come out here and
look at that star out yonder !" he called
to his wife. There they both gazed, and
wondered, but the only conclusion they
could arrive at, was that the strange
spectacle was one of the meteors, billed
to come, and it had arrived early.
The old innocents retired, to arise in the
morning to find the star still there, and
there it will be for many years to come,
for it was naught but the large arc light
beaming from the tower of the college
administration building, Tuesday night

While doing a little carpenter work
about his premises last Friday, Mr. S. N.
Wilkins had a little mixup with a re
fractory board which came near placing
him hors de combat.' The board was

him on the cheek, breaking off a tooth
and marring the beauty of that side of
his face.
As a business barom eter, a post office
is entitled to no little consideration, and
in this connection the. receipts of the
post office as shown by the official re
ports, indicates a story of unusual pros
sperity that is worth mentioning, viz :
The gross receipts of tho office for Octo
ber just passed, were the largest in the
history of the office, being 87 per cent
more than for the corresponding month
of 1895, 90 per cent more than for the
same month of 1896, 80 per cent more
than for the same month of 1897 and 27
per cent more than for the same month
of 1898 or for- any other month since the
establishment of the office.
With fresh eggs selling at 22 to 25 cents
a dozen in the Corvallis market, it looks
as if "the woman with the hen" will su
percede "the man with the hoe." Ore
gon has made great strides in the poul
try business during the- past few years,
but the demand is outgrowing the sup
ply. - Farmers should not overlook this
branch of agriculture any longer, but en
ter into it as a part of the farm work
systematically. There can be no doubt
of the demand for poultry products for
years to come. There are other features
of farm work that require more labor
than a little attention to the poultry
yards, with much less profit.
News has been received here of the
death of William Jasper : Freel, from
cancer of the face, at Davenport, Wash.,
October 29th. Mr. Freel was a veteran
of the Rogue river Indian
war, and a pioneer of Benton county.
He was born in Jasper connty, Indiana,
April 22, 1839. In 1852 he emigrated to
Oregon, locating in Benton county.
Daring the trip across the plains his
parents died of cholera, Mr. Freel re
sided in Benton county until some 13
years ago. He leaves four sisters : Mrs.
George Kiger, Philomath; Mrs. David
Hawley, Dusty; Mrs. Johnathan Park
inson, of Pomona, Kansas, and Mrs. Jas

Mr. S. II. Moore, late of Illinois, who
recently purchased the farm of Ira Hun
ter, received a letter from his father,
Mr. J. H. Moore, of Brimfield, Illinois,
Tuesday, instructing him to purchase
immediately, the 630-acre farm of Henry
Calioway, 10 miles north of Corvallis, ad
joining the Ira Hunter place. Mr.
Moore, junior, came to Corvallis without
delay and closed the. bargain with Mr,
Calloway, the consideration being $6,000.
Instructions also came from the father to
purchase the residence of Mr. A. F.
Hershner for $1,600, aad deeds for both
transactions were executed Tuesday.
Mr. Moore has anunt in Illinois who
wishes to purchase a 30 or 32-acre farm
near Corvallis, for which she is willing
to pay $1,000, and Mr. Moore is on the
lookout for such a bargain. Mr. S. H.
Moore will arrive in Corvallis about
March 1, 190.).
This is the season when in Northern
states east of the Rocky mountains, the
ground freezes and the muddy roads be
come "hubby." Stock come scampering
and shivering about the barns and sheds
to be housed and fed. AVith thick,
coarse coats and mittens the farmers go
out in the morning to "do the chores''
into "a nipping and an eager air."
Vegetation is all dead ; aud the long win
ter has begun. Here in Corvallis in the
heart of Webfoot, it will be several
weeks yet before the cold winds come,
and no surprise would be felt if they
should not appear at all. In many of
our Corvallis yards the roses are bloom
ing yet and many bright and hardy
flowers shed their autumnal fragrance
upon the temperate atmosphere. Mud
there is, and moisture, but most kinds
of seasonable, out-of-door work can be
prosecuted with no inconvenience a
large portion of the time. We shall
have some brief spells of sharp winter
weather, but the climatic contrast be
tween Oregon and Vermont, Bay, for the
next five months, is one that Oregonians
can view with satisfaction as to, their
place of residence.

In driving along the country roads at
this time of year it is an easy matter to
distinguish the thrifty farmer from the
careless one. The difference is depicted
in the manner in which each takes care
of his farming machinery. The time tf
year lms come wheu the farmer should
take care of the farm implements.
Every plow, wagon, harrow, reaper
mower or other implement used should
be stored away out of the sun, rain and
snow, snea lor storage can oo easny
built and it should be borne in mind
that protection is as important as any
task of the farm. Thousands of dollars
are lost every year by the thoughlessness
of farmers in not caring for their imple
The jolly Freshmen of the college had
one of their "times" at the armory last
Friday evening. On entering the armory
hall each lady was given a half heart on
hich was written part of a familiar
quotation, the gentlemen receiving the
missing halves. All was pleasant con
fusion uutil each boy succeeded in find
ing his better half. After promenading
for some time games were introduced in
which all took and active part. Prof,
Kent then called the attention' of the
young people and started the grand
march after which refreshments, con
sisting of bananas and nuts were served.
The presence of several members of the
faculty added dignity to the occasion;
At half past eleven the festive makers
departed for home, heartily pleased with
their evening's enjoyment.
An item on the weather is always ap
propriate, and in this regard we might
say that prettier weather for this time of
year could not be hoped for, or could be
given ns than was afforded the first part
of the week. It was as warm and brigh'
as springtime, the air was lieht and
balmy and those who were inclined to
be blue were speedily cured of their ail
ment. The farmers - who had been
forced to cease their fall plowing a few
days before owing to the rain, again had
the opportunity of resum ing their work,
and as a result much seed has been sown.
But ou Wednesday morning the sleeping
Oregonian was awakened at an early
hour by the familiar tat too of the little

who had kept awake to witness the
spectacle of shooting stars and falling
meteorites were just a little disappointed.
The more superstitious' pnes who ex
pected to find themselves ',in eternity on
Wednesday morning, awoke with a glad
feeling in their- hearts for they knew
it was entirely too wet to be that burn
ing place of perdition.
The Visitors Failed to Make Yardage
Even One Time,
Whatever misgiving may have existed
in the minds of the devotees of the grid
iron as to the superior ability of OAC'i
eleven of '99, was removed by those
sturdy athletes last Saturday. Belittle
Albany's team as you. may, it has same
individual players who1 could secure posi
tions on any college team in Oregon,: and
its team work was far superior to any
thing done by former elevens from that
institution. It had shown itself the
equal of Willamette in' practice game
and held the U of O's seettnd eleven to a
score of 6 to 0. While nor alarm was felt
at the outcome of last Saturday's contest,
the most sanguine admirer of OAC did
not put the score at more than 30 to 0 in a
game of 35-minute halves, afiSP-SHbauy

firmament is ablaze with his presence.
A recent issue of the Portland Telegram
contributes ' the following to history
'Among the. members of 'The Electri

'-Bert is a native Oregonian and began
his professional career as a su'pe in Cor

munificent . sum of $3 a week for his first
efforts. ' He worked his way up however,
to such. an extent while here that he was
given aniiner part with the Essie Tittle
company, which left Portland about four
years ago. ' After playing with the Tittle
company, for sometime he was given
more lucrative position with; the Carrie

Friday , the 24th of November there
will be a piano and song recital at the
college chapel by Miss . Dorothea. Nash,
pianist, and Marguerite Hansen contral
to, accompanied 'by Mr.'fJSfi-' Gifford
Nash. Miss Hansenis lately from, the
city of Portland where sne now nas
charge of the vocal department of the
State University. " '.
The program is one almost entirely
new to a Corvallis audience and will be
accompanied tfr a short analysis of-the
pieces played, which will aid in the ap
preciation of the music and help remote
the dread which the average person feels
toward so-called classical music, which
is only because they do not hear it prop
erly. ;
The proceeds after expenses are paid
will be turned over to the manage? of
the football team, so that besides enjoy
ing an evening of good music we can
feel we are aiding in the chances of our
being champions of the gridiron.
The general admission "' will be-36
cents, students, -25. cents.. -Tickets for
