The other day a erentleman of
this city related his . experience in
the egg business many years ago.
It was quite brief, but very thril
ling. He stated that when he was
a boy he engaged in a wrestle with
another youth in a grocery store
one day. The narrator was thrown
and fell backwards into a tub of
eggs. By a system of mathematics
not in vogue today, it was esti
mated that exactly seventy-two1
eggs were broken. While he could
not see the "seat of his trousers,"
he had no reason to doubt the re
sult ef the calculation, so he paid
me mil and passed down the alley
for home, feeling that his disguise
was very imperfect, and for once in
his life he would sooner face the
world than turn his back on it.
Our eontemDorarv.eives its read
ers, to understand that the mer
chants of this city have carried
their comnetitian so far that thev
are paying more for eggs than they
are willing to sell them for. In
other words, that they are paying
i cents per dozen more than they
are selling for. A nrominent mer
chant informs us that as far as he
is concerned he is not losing any
money on eggs and that he has a
market for eees that makes it
profitable for him to pay the pres
ent price. We are moaned to think
that all the business men of the
eitj are wideawake enough to make
Corvallis a market second to none,
and it is but reasonable to suppose
than when they are doing every
thing in their . sower to eet carers at
the present prices that they are not
doing it to lose money.

the week Mr. Franklin will begin
lining up the machinery and it is
thought that in from two to three
weeks from' this date the proprietor
can begin sawing. The capacity
will be about 25,000 feet per day,
with 80-horse power engines. The

by maintaining order during the
