on a visit to his old home in Prus

He expect to return to the United

At the home of he r mother, near
this city, last Saturday evening at
D o'clock, occurred the death of
Miss Anna Vanhousen. borne two
years ago she suffered a severe at
tack of bronchitis which developed
into consumption, and this resulted
in her death. Everything possible
was done to stay the progress of
this dreadful disease, but to no
avail, and she passed away in the
very dawn of womanhood, her age
heinar but llJ years, bee was an ex
eroplary young lady, possessed of
many friends, by whom her loss is
deeply deplored. The funeral oc
cured yesteiday afternoon. Ser
vices were conducted at the family
residence by Re r. Mark Noble, and
interment took place at Crystal
According to the best informa
tion to be obtained it is estimated
that the Oregon crop of hops this
season will be 10,000 bales short of
the annual production. The aver
age yield in Oregon is about 80,
000 bales, leading both the sister
states tho north and south of her in
quantity produced. California's
crop averages 50,000 bales annually,
while that of Washington is esti
mated at 75,000 There is also much
speculation in the minds of hop
men regarding the b3st steps to be
taken for the disposal of the crop at
pi ices satisfactory to all. Some
propose pooling, while others ad
vance the idea of cutting the pro
duction down to the demand. It is
thought that a good, . wide-awake
association would prove beneficial
in many ways.
Local sportsmen are beginning to

Miss Elsie Long formerly of this
city, is employed in teaching at
Colfax, Wash., at a salary of $ oO

Miss D. Lyle Lawrence, who
doped a verv creditable term of!
school at Currinsvilleon Monday of j
last week returned home Sunday.
n excellent entertainment was
presented at tho clase, it being the
end of a second term at that place,
says an Oregon City paper.
A gentleman who resides a cou
ple of miles west of Philomath, and
has an orchard of several hundred
trees, states that they were not in
the lea9t damaged by tho frosts of
a month ago. It is strange how
the fruit in some crchards is almost
totally destroyed, while in other
localities there seems to have been
little or no injury sustained.
George Gay, who was sent to the
penitentiary something over a year
ago for stealing a gun and some old
clothes from a farm house in this
county, has recently been pardoned
by Gov. Geer. Gay was sentenced
to a two-years' term, but on account
of former good character and later
information regarding the case the
governor saw fit to grant his release.
The presentation of the "Passion
Play" at the Opera House last Sat
urday evening, through the medium
of Edison s moving pictures and
under the auspices of the college Y.
M. C. A., made an entertainment of
nterest and profit. In a financial
way it yielded little, for the at
tendance was small, but, the vari
ous scenes depicting the life of
Christ were beautiful and inspiring,
and must prove of benefit to all
who witnessed them.
Dr. N. B. Avery, in whose be
half a special dispensation was
granted in order that he might take
the Knights templar degree, passed
safely through the ordeal last
lhursday and Friday evenings at
Albany. Prof. Horner, W. E. and
J. F. Yates, all of this city were
present. I he special dispensation
was granted in order that "Pole"
could take the degree before his de
parture for the Paris exposition.
He expects to start shortly.
In a recent letter to relatives in
this city, Miss Ollie Thompson,
pianist for the American Trouba
dours, writes from Hotel del Coro
nado, California, that she wi'J not
be able to spend her -vacation at
home this season. Although- her
contract with the Troubadours has
been satisfactorily fulfilled, it has
been terminated, and she has con
tracted as pianist for Henry Ohl
meyer's orchestra for the season;
this organization having been se
cured to furnish music at the above
named hotel for the coming season.
Miss Thompson has been very for
tunate in securing this position, as
it is one of the best organizations of
its kind on the coast. She has the
month of May for a vacation, but
has decided to spend it in Los

Basketball Girls of O A C Defeat Portland
by a Score of 7 to 5.
Girls of the O A C basket ' ball
team, we are proud of yon! Your
victory of last Friday night is the
bright paiticular star in a firma
ment unclouded by a single defeat.
You are champions of the North
west, and your long list of victories
have been well earned and justly
merited. Your conduct, under try
ing circumstances, like those im
posed upon you last Friday even
ing, has been modest, ladylike and
above reproach, and makes you
worthy of all the admiration and
applause you have received. Your
record for this yea.: alone is an en
viable one: O A C vs Albany, 47
to 2; O A C vs State Normal, 22 to
2; O A C vs Chemawa, 31 to 4; O
A C vs Portland Y M C A, 7 to 5.
The ladie3 of the Portland club
arrived on Friday's noon train and
were met at the depot by a delega
tion of students They spent the
afternoon in viewing the college
grounds and buildings, and antici
pating an easy victory in the even
ing'. When time was called for the im
portant event which was to decide
the championship of the Northwest,
a largo and eager audience had as
sembled. The first half ended with
a score of 3 to 2 in favor of O A C.
In the second half they incretsed
this to 5 to 2, and so the score stood
until near the end of the half when
Portland secured three points, tying
the score This required a contin
uation of the game until one side
had made two points. Within two
minutes after continuation of play
Miss Letia Owenby made a brilliant
goal from the field, winning the
game. The final score was, O A C,
7; Portland, 5.
John A. Buchanan, whose death
occurred Thursday afternoon, at his
farm about ten miles south of Cor
vallis, had been a most respected"
resident of Benton county for the
past 46 years,- At the time of his
death Mr. Buchanan was aged
about G2 years. He was county
commissioner at the time of his
death, and was counted amomg the
most level-headed men of the coun
ty. For several days he had not been
feeling well, especially on the Sat
urday and Sunday preceding his
death; nevertheless he kept about
and was choring around near the
woodshed at the time death over
took: him. He died alone and
whether death was instantaneous
or not is conjecture, In publio life
he has always been a citizen for the
public to be proud of, and had he
lived but a few weeks longer he
would have completed his term of
tour years as county commissioner.
The wife and seven children sur
vive him. The funeral services
were held at the home of the de
ceased Friday morning and the re
mains were interred in Bellfountain
For some time there has been
compiaint, and not without cause,
on the part of the Alseans regard
ing the condition of the road be
tween Philomath and Alsea. The
cause of the trouble seems to be
that part of the load is in Willam
ette precinct, and the people of the
little valley claim that in order to
reach market they must work some
six or seven miles of road that is
not in their district. This on top
of the fact that they have, all told,
some fifty miles of read to keep up
aud only about sixty men to do the
work. Moreover, it is nearly all
mountainous and must be worked
with pick and shovel, as road
scrapers cannot be used to advant
age there, as in the valley. It is
claimed that there are only about
three months of the year that they
can reach market with a reasonable
effort, and that their produce
must lie in there on account of the
roads until it is often out of season,
or until there are heavy losses on
account of a decline in prices.
That this is a serious state of affairs
goes without saying, aud it ought
to attract the attention of some
person or party in position to do
something in aid of the citizens of

M. S. Woodcock,
Many of the farmers are com
plaining of aphii on the grain crop.
It is something unusual for aphis
to be in evidence so early in the
season and there is considerable
anxiety felt as to the result. As' a
general thing aphis does not ap
pear on crairf until just before it
ripens. Some of the farmer are of
the opinion that a few bright days
may settle the fate of the pests. It
seems that spring grain suffers
more than the fall sown fields.
Registration figures have been
climbing up rapidly the last few
days, resterday at noon lbu
names appeared on the books.
Some interesting facts are to be
gleaned from these records. The
two Corvallis precincts, lyiug
wholly within the city, show a con
siderable increase in voters over the
poll of two years ago, while the
other two, comprised in part of the
adjacent country, show a falling off.
In 1898, Corvallis precinct No. 2,
polled 187 votes, the present regis
tration is 206; Corvallis, No. 3
polled 160, and shows a registra
tion of 171; Corvallis No. 1 polled
1G5, but registers only 156, while
Corvaliis No. 4 polled 150, and only
109 have yetregistercd.

quite a number ot enthusissts were
out Saturday to witness the contest
in athletics - between tho various
classes of the O. A. C. The track
was ideal, and tho weather, while a
trifle cool, agreeable for record
making in the sprints. Some of
these events were exciting, and con
sidering the earliness of the season,
and the fact that Trainer McLeod
has been with the team less than
a week, were exceedingly fast.
Scott's broad jump of 19 feet 7
inches, and Palmer's running of the
120-yard hurdles in 17 1-5 seconds,
were efforts worthy of the final field

cotton goods. Before the advance
we stocked up with cords of do
mestics shirtings, sheetings,
ginghams, prints, and other cot
ton goods. We are now selling
these goods at just about what
other "merchants have to pay for
them at present prices. You will
find this store a good place to sup
ply your needs in this line.
