It seems strange that the Corral- lis Baptist Association, should, as far as can be ascertained hare no connection whatever with Corvallis. But this seems to be the case, and the association's field is Lane, Coos and Douglas counties. How it comes to be called after this city is puz zling. The schools of Albany and Cor vallis joined farces and arranged for an excursion to Newport and return Wednesday. The fare was put at the lowest possible figure for school children.

Supposing-a doe raises five litters of eight young each, she has forty to her credit. Presuming half of this litter to be does, there are four, and these bur, if all goes well, will produce two litters by the end of a year. Figuring on the same basis they will produce 104. It may be presumed that the second litter of the original doe will produce once, and the basis of figuring there will be sixty-two more, making a total of lob hares, as the increase of one dee. If they are of good breeding they will weigh eight pounds eoeh at the age of eight months. Thus it will be seen that three figures are required to express the weight of the increase of one doe in the course of a year.

To sail npon the flowing sea Where waves o'er waves are heaving. Our bark will safely ride tke waves, Will reach the golden strand; The stars of hope will' guide us o'er The Artie's frozen lands. The Alaskan hills we will explore, Its golden streams we'll pan, And bring you nuggets from the shores Untrodden yet by man. We'll search the Arctic circle round, And when our task is done Bring Sack the treasures we have found From the land of the midnight snn. Bat, if perchance, too long we wait And yet no news the while, Don't think we're shipwrecked on the straits. Or on some frozen isle . And when the bells on ChriBtmas day Ring out their joyous sounds Then think of loved ones far away In Artie fetters bound. Think of the long polanic gloom And how we pass the time While towering glaciers heavenward loom Eternal and sublime. Yet, we'll return, yon may depend, It will never be our lot To leave our bones where polar bear Will eyer find the spot. We'll bring a schooner load of gold From the Alaskan bills ; We'll doff oar boots and corduroys Then you can put on frills. We'll take a trip around the world And through the foreign lands, And wander neath Italian bowers By lone arcadian strands. , And, now, farewell, till we return, And with the gold we find We'll build yon all palatial homes On the Hudson or the Rhine.

GROCERY selling in a depart ment store no longer attracts attention because of its novelity, but for the reason that the best of food products costs less there than the exclusive grocer charges. This store is easily in the lead in this respect. Our grocery de partment is appreciated by well posted buyers because it offers an opportunity to supply the family needs in this line at closest prices. Country produce taken. VyHENEVER you find a y properly organized and rightly conducted men's furnish ing stock in a dry goods store there you will find a successful one. Men no longer shun dry goods store furnishings, for they know they can get correct styles at close prices. We invite the attention of our customers to an especially fine and complete line of neckwear just opened. SHOE value consists in wear, style and comfort. If any of the three are lacking the foot wear is not good value. Our shoes are strictly reliable in qual ity, therefore long wearing; they are stylish, as can be seen at a glance; they are comfortable, be cause fitted by an expert. All our customers will bear out these statements. We believe this is the best place for you to buy shoes, and solicit your patronage. F. L. Miller. Every item offered below is proof of the above assertion. The quotations are only a very meagre representa tion of the values which place this store unquestionably in the lead. This store is crowded with the most com plete and comprehensive stock of dry goods we have ever shown. Every line was bought at close prices, and the goods will be passed along to our customers at the usual small margin of profit which has made this store so successful and popular. The New Spring Parasols Are Here, This store offers many attractions to economical buyers. A store that relies solely on low prices to win and hold trade is playing "a losing game." To win such success as this store is winning it is necessary that the low prices should represent goods of strictly reliable quality. Every woman in this city who is posted on dry goods, and who takes the time to compare goods and prices will admit that our values are superior. We make and hold customers by treating them right. We lead; others follow. IF you want a stylish spring hat for $3.00, just as good as the $5.00 kind, come here. The only difference is in the absence of the name, and "what's in a name." If you are willing to pay two dol lars for a name, buy the five dol lar hat If you want to pay only for the hat, come here. Agent for Kmgburry hats. OUR glove stock is the best patronized and most popular in this vicinitr. because we make a constant effort to show ft larger lme, and offer better glove values than anv other local dealer. It is not easy to do a satisfactory kid glove business. It requires long exnerience. careful buying:, con scientious selling and a willing ness to be content with a small profit We recognize all these requirements and conform to them. That's why Corvallis women can get better gloves here for the price than elsewhere. BEFORE your spring gown are fitted a new corset wil be needed. That goes almost without saying, for everyone knows that an ill-fitting or worn out corset spoils the fit of the dress. Our corset woman can help customers select the proper model on that will improve tha figure. Consult her and you will be better satisfied with your cor set, and the fit of your dresses. trfces from 50c to $1.50. RECENTLY advances have taken place in all lines of 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. Yon will find this store a good place to sup ply your needs in this line. F. L. Miller. this omission is evidence that Carl is all right.
