not be amiss, especially if they
were notices or improvement.

Corvallis is certainly a good mar
ket for farmers, bggs are now
18 cents per dozen in this city. It
does not mailer to the farmer who
has eggs to sell whether this is
caused by local competition, or not.
The important part of the business
is the fact that he can get more for
his eggs in Corvallis than he can at
any other place. Why or how this
is brought about .does not effect
him, To the business men of the
cit much credit, is due for estab
lishing and maintaining a produce
market that is eecoad to DOB.
Will Start an Organ Factjory.
The carriage factory is to be again

c , R SI. C amer, of Dallas, Or
egon. Lue. j&;ii tU- evening Mr.
Thomas Jenkins dieted of the
building and plant for $4,500, and
is now speeding for hia home in Ill
inois. -V
, Mr. Cramer is proprietor of the
organ factory at Dallas and it is his
intention to convert the carriage fac
lory into a oneern for the manufac
tury of Organs. He will arrive here
in a few days and will employ a
iorce or men to complete the unfin
isned vehicles new on hand. It is
hoped that orders now being filled
for organs at Dallas will be com
pleted by fall, when the factory will
be removed to Corvallis. Should it
be found impossible to begin opera
tions here at that time, the plant
here will be running by the first of
January next at the latest, A force
of eight men are new employed,
but with the opportunities offered
here for an increased out-put, a
larger number of men will no doubt
find employment.
The Corvallis and Bonlon County
Prune company which assisted Mr.
Cramer in the purchase, has secur
ed the big 80-horse-power boiler
and 50-horse-power engine at the
factory and will begiamovlng them
to the big orchard today, where
they will be used in operating a
mammoth dryer with a capaoity
of from 1,200 to 1,500 bushels per
day. This will be the largest dryer
in. the world. The orchard will
probably yield 40,000 bushels of
prunes this season, and the services
of the big dryer as well as the old-two-lnnnel
dryer will be required
in curing them. Mr. Cramer will
replace the engine and boiler with
eroaller machines.

jostling crowds, striped bunting
ana circus lemonade, but Philo

cessfwl dairy meetings through
out the valley under the auspices
of the Southern Pacific company,
will be present at a meeting held
at' the O A C. next Thnrsday.

don't think. They do not farm
the railroad com pjuy lias to do
with" the farmers,' anyway, and
they seemed to think that tile
average farmer knows all about
farming and cannot be told any
thing about.' Said he finds that
those who know all about it are
not saccessfnl and are blaming
the country, climate 'etc.. for
the noa productiveness of their
farms when the difBcnlty ts that
they don't know how and are not
willing to learn. When he finds
a man that is ; willing -to learn
and asks questions for the pur
pose of gaining inform "Vi he
finds a prosperous farme .jays
he finds some farmers who nn
derstand their business and are
progressive, but he finds that a
majority are not. It is not the
farm that Is bad, but tho farmer.
There are a great many more
poor farmers than farms. They
allow the barnyard manure to ac
cumulate around the barn when
the land is hungry for it." .
Beyond doabt Mr. Smith is a
most competent and capable man
and ne appears to bave a thor
ough, grasp en the troubles that
beset the average farmer. It is
to be hoped that the meeting
this week will bs well attended.
