At the Farmers' Institute recent
ly held in Lincoln county Mr.
Kanpisch, of the Corvallis cream
ery, made some very interesting re
marks on matters relative to the
dairy bus'ness. Coming from a
man of his experience in the field
much dependence can be placed in
what he states.
In many farming journals the
dairy columns are harping contin
uously on the fact that cows give
more and richer milk when "milked
to music." If this be true, here is
a chance for milkers who are good
whistlers. It is also a pla-e where
a phonograph would be appropri
ate and useful.
A gentleman was in Corvallis a
few days ago with his eyes In quite
a serious condition. He is a resi
dent of KingB Valley. When
asked when, how and where his
eyes were hurt he stated that a lady
had poked him in the eye with her
umbrella during the process of the
school picnic. His eyes were both
in a serious condition, and whether
he was poked at in fun or not he
did not state.
Referring to the djings of the
citizens of Albany on the Fourth,
the Herald says: Probably the
largest crowd went to Corvallis,
where a two days' eelebration was
held. Tue program was carried out
in full, and the large crowd was
well pleased. The baseball game
in the forenoon wa won by Cor
vallis by a scare of 27 to 2, the
game being stopped in the fifth in
ning on account of rain. The ad
dles of Hon. L R. Webster was
listened to attentively. The races
in the afternoon were good.

In a letter to relatives, James S.
Booth, who is now at Nome, states
that the prospects up there are far
from encouraging. Everything has
been exaggerated and the thous
ands of people who are up there
cannot make expenses. Men with
picks and shovels, rockers, sluices
and all sorts of gold-saving ma
chines are working day and night.
There being no returns for this out
lay of both labor and money, the
.Tien are becoming more and more
discouraged every day. The out
look is certainly "blue" enough.
Colonel H. E. Dosch, secretary of
the state board of horticulture, says :
Eastern Oregon will have the
largest fruit yield ever harvested
in that section, and the ppple crop
will i e especially large all over the
state. The peaches in Southern
Oregon and the Fellenberg prunes
throughout the Willamette valley
are the only fruits which have been
injured primarily by frosts. This
means a loss of about WJ carloads
of peaches to Southern Oregon, and
possibly 400 carloads of Fellenberg
prunes to the Willamette valley.
The experiences of Johnny Pipes,
of Portland, son of Hon. M L.
Pipes, formerly of this city, have
bad quite a romantic turn. It
seems that he had formed an at

Portland, and wished to wed her,
but his parents objected seriously
and matters became quite compli
cated. 'Johnny was fortunate
enough to secure a position in the
census bureau at Washington re
cently and shortly after his arrival
there be sent for Miss .fennel ana
on her arrival in Washicgton they
were married. The bride is spoken
of as a most estimable young lady.
A Communication Front This
Summer Resort.
A celebration of the national
holiday was held by the citizens
of Upper Alsea at what is now
called .the "Reed" place. This
place nas been fitted up as a
summer resort and has all kinds
of buildings. Standing in the
center of the group of buildings
is the Music Hall, a most im
portant item to its possessors,
who are all musicians of the
genius stamp. This building is
20x50 feet in size and special
eare has been taken in its con
struction. In one end of the hall
is a stage, the walls are decora
ted with paintings of old mas
ters. Bethoven'slikeness adorns
the center, while paintings of
various scenes from nature and
art are assigned 'places in this
remote hall. Connected with
tihs building is a banquet hall,
14 x 40 feet.
The owners of this ideal re
sort in the mountains, where we
spent our Fourth, are known to
all the people of this section as
the "Reed family." Mrs. Reed
is a highly cultured lady and
aer cnarming manners at once
places a visitor at his ease, and
he is aware that he has stepped
into a circle of refinement, taste
and culture. Oped Reed is a
cellist of great reputation, and
Miss Reed is a violiniste of
superior attainments, and to
hear them play is to be inspired
Madam Tobes, another tourist
who is summering at this resort,
is both a violiniste and pianiste.
And it was to hear these famous
musicians and celebrate in this
manner the Glorious Fourth that
we had all gathered at this spot.
Such a concert as we were treated
to is surely a grand enongh cele
bration for any people or for any
event. A fine banquet took
place in the hall adjoining the
concert. The culinary depart
ment was under the supervision
of Mrs. Ellis, a very gracious
lady and to whom the success of
the banquet was largely due.
There were other members of
this family and their guests to
whom we must express our grati
tude for many courtesies shown
us, the denizens of the back
woods. We thank the ladies
and gentlemen for giving us this
treat and sincerely hope that
when the next anniversary of
our national independence rolls
around that we shall again be
entertained by these gracious
Hurt Again.
Yaquina Improvement.
In the way of accidents Fred
Qberer is beyond a doubt the most
unlucky fellow in Corvallis. It has
been first one accident and then
another with him for several years.
He is one of the skilled men opera
ting the Corvallis Hardwood Fac
tory, and was again the victim of
an accident Friday afternoon at
5:30 o'clock. While sawing out
some insulator brackets a piece of
bark caught in some manner the
small piece of oak Fred was work
ing on and caused it to strike the
saw. In order to eain an idea of
the force yith which the piece was
hurled through .the air it is only
necessary to state that the outer
edge of the saw travels at the rate
of 10,000 feet a minute. Fred
instinctively threw his right arm
up across his chest a3 a protection,
and the piece of oak struck him
across the arm and over the heart.
Such a blow caused his heart to
almost cease beating. He stag
gered a few steps, lost consciousness
and fell. A physician was sum
moned and when he regained con
sciousness he -was taken home. His
arm was considerably bruised by
the blow it received, and while
Fred will be able to be about the
factory and oversee the work, it
will be a week or two before he can
take a hold of machinery again
himself. It may be said that he
had a lucky escape, when it is re
membered that Charley Rider, who
was struck over the heart in a simi
lar manner, while employed in the
sawmnl a couple of summers ago
staggered a few feet and fell dead
Captain Harts, United States
engineer, has received notice
from the chief of engineers that
his project for the removal of
pinnacle rock at the entrance to
Yaquina bay has been approved,
and, in accordance with direc
tions to begin work at once, has
dispatched Assistant Engineer
Pelhemus, a diver and a crew of
men to commence operations.
This is the rock for the removal
of which Congressman Touguo
secured an appropriation near the
end of the recent session ot con
gress. It rises to within six feet
of the surface at low tide, is
about 2000 feet out from the end
of the south jetty, not directly in
the channel, but near enough to
make it a menace to navigation,
and makes the captains of crafts
entering the harbor nervous.
As the rock is in an exposed
location and operations can only
be carried on in fine weather,
the work will be pushed with all
possible expedition, as one month
of summer has been lost, and
only about two moHths are left
in which it will be practicable to
carry oa operations. If all goes
well the job will be completed
before the fall storms set in.
A Nome Letter.
Elizabeth Mangas.
The Mischief.
Nearly every resident of the Wil
lamette valley who has ever spent
a few days at Yaquina City or
Newport and listened to the sea
tales of the Oregon coast, has heard
of the steam schooner the Mischief.
The craft was a familiar coaster of
the smaller ports of Oregon for
years, but finally was operated as a
sealer under an English charter.
She was recently taken to Seattle,
where enough'repairs were made on
her to entitle her to an American
charter. He name was changed
and she was rechristened the Alas
kan. She has engaged in the Nome
trade and sailed from Seattle Saturday.
Parties having bills against the
Fourth of July committee are re
quested to present them not later
than Saturday evening.
E. R. Bryson,
The death of Mrs. Elizabeth
Mangas occurred in this city
Saturday, July 7th. 1900. She
was aged 55 years, 4 months and
22 days. Funeral services were
held at 9 a. m. Monday, July 9,
in the Catholic church, Father
Felix officiating. The remains
were interred in the Catholic
Elizabeth Zierolf was born in
Boston and at an early age moved
to Ohio. May 2c, 1878, she was
united in wedlock with H. C.
Mangas. Hie wedding occurred
at Defiance, Ohio, from which
place they came to Corvallis in
1891. After about a year's resi
dence here Mrs. Mangas began to
ail with progressive paralysis.
In spite of the best care and
medical attention she daily grew
worse. For the past two years
she has been vcrv low: during
the past year she has been help
less, and to make her lot still
more pathetic, she lest the
power of speech. Her husband,
a daughter, May, just merging
into womanhood, and a son,
George, aged 16 years, survive
her. She had mauy relatives
in this city and vicinity, who,
with her immediate family, and
numerous friends will mourn her
sad death.

A letter was received a short time
ago by Mrs. Tfillis Vidito, of Alsea,
from her husband who is in Nome.
In his letter Mr. Vidito stated that
he and his partner, Mr. Johnson,
were tenting together with the Cor
vallis contingent. He speaks
rather discauragingly of the out
look in the North. He had traveled
over about twenty miles of the
beach and states that many of the
claims have been worked over time
and again and are nearly worked
out. Many claims have been re
staked a number of times, and
jumping is jnot unknown. Build
ing lots in Nome city are valued
at thousands of dollars. Some
things are fairly cheap, owing to
the fact that the market is over
stocked with thh or that particular
commodity. There were many
ships arriving loaded down with
passengers and freight. Some few
boats were quarantined on account
of smallpox. A nice iuicy beef
steak will cost one $3, and this sum
is about equal to the amount of
gold that will be taken out by the
average man working on beach
diggings. Taken altogether Mr.
Vidito's account is far from encouraging.

say of our townsman and his horses
in regard to the state fair: Reu
ben Kiger is training quite a string
of trotters and pacers on his new
track at Corvallis. The pet of his
stable is his two-year old Pilot
Lane, by Coeur d'AIene, dam Sadie
C, by Pilot Lemont. This young
ster is showing speed enough to en
title him to some high-class honors
in the future. Mr. Kiger has his
eye oa first money in the produce

entry, Dewey, by Coeur d'AIene
Altago. Other horses in his stable
are: Sadie C, by Pilot Lemont
Mary A; Peek-a-Boo P 2:24, by
Metropolitan; green trotter by
Altago. Besides the horses in
training Mr. Kiger is a large
breeder and has several head of
good brood mares. At the head of
his stud is the big chestnut stallion
Silver Light, by Wallace Drew,
son of Guy Wilkes. He is 16$

1400 pounds. Mr. Kiger will move
over to the fair grounds in the near

well to keep an eye out for him.

Major Frank E. Edwards left
Saturday for Salem to join the
other 1200 members of the Oregon

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.

Every item offered below is proof of
the above assertion.
The quotations are only a very meagre representa

in the lead. This store is crowded with' the most com
plete and comprehensive stock of dry goods we have

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 righr. We lead;
others follow.

OUR glove stock is the best
patronized and most popular
in this vicinity, because we make
a constant effort to show a larger
line, and offer better glove values
than any other local dealer. It is
not easy to do a satisfactory kid
glove business. It requires long
experience, 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.
