Mayor Woodcock's Address of Welcome on Behalf of the Citizens of Corvallis. ' I have been reqneslcd to express a few words of welcome on the part of the Citi zens' League of Benton county and the City of Corvallis in token of our sincere appreciation of tho interest represented in your Visit to the State Agricultural College. At different periods during the history of this school it has been regarded as local 1y those who-have not thought thoroughly along the important lines 'S" by the scientific and experimental racnnrnli m oil A in (Via ci.bnnl Ttr.. questions, however, are becoming better understood. It is evident from the large number of intelligent, representative, progressive farmers aud business men from different parts of this state, that more than a local iaterest ia being felt in the importance of the State Agricotlural College at this time. It is natural and correct for as to regard those who have gone before as having wisely laid the proper foundation stones npon which is being established this the best and most progressive government in the world to day. Upon this point it is significant and convincing that the congress of. the United States builded well when they set apart to each of the sevaral states large tracts of public lands to be sold and the proceeds thereof retained as an irreduci ble fund the interest accumulating thereon to be used in maintaining state agricultural colleges in the v different states where instruction in agriculture and the mechanic arts should be the im portant and leading instructions; follow ed by subsequent legislation establishing experiment stations in connection with these colleges, and large appropriations provided by congress to pay the expenses thereof. To say that national legislators of that day were mistaken in these lines is to accuse them of being incompetent and enacting unwise legislition. But such was not the case. While practical farming performed in an intelligent way without the aid of scientific research is very substantial and necessary, yet scientific principles, we are compelled to admit, are- founded upon truth. It seems, therefore, that this same scientific truth and investigation along those lines coupled with the practical and experi mental is becoming as essential when applied to "farming as it is to the other pursuits in life." It is evident that those who were in strumental long ago in providing the means from the general government by which these agricultural colleges and ex perimental' stations "shall he maintained were at that time able to look into the distant future and forsee the conditions as transpiring at this time. At that time those who had not made special studyof those subjects regarded the pro ceedings along those lines wijh apparent indifference, because the lands all over our country were comparatively new.pro- ducing Jarge and never failing crops. Conditions have changed. By constant cropping.year after year for a generaiion the soil became depleted. . It required different treatment. The const ant yearly cropping under' the same continuous methods exhausts the soil of Important elements which it is necessary to restore. The agricultural college and station sup plies this important information.. By carefal experiments and analysis we are able to learn through these schools what elements have been taken from the soil by old methods and what treatment is necessary to restcre the soil to its normal condition. " 7 , '. The experience and observations of the results of the agricultural industries in our state is abundant prrof of these changing conditions, r , - ' For many years after the early settle ment of this country it was only neces sary to plow and sow by indifferent methods in order to reap an abundant and profitable harvest, but by constantly withdrawing the natural elements of the soil it was found difficult and after an other short time impossible to obtain the same flattering results, different meth ods of cultivation in due time were intro duced with apparent success. But this was only temporary, for with the best methods as generally practiced for the last ten years it is evident that the yield of grain and other products have be come much less and mere difficult and the soil less productive for other pur poses. With these conditions confront ing us we turn to the agricultural college and experiment station to learu the cause and suggest the remedy, which must come to us through scientific inves tigation. These subjects, the best meth ods in producing and protecting the fruit and other, products of the soil as well as the best kinds, .breeds and grades of stock adapted to our industrial condi tions, the best and most economic feeds and the best methods of feeding them are very important questions confronting us at this time, because all of the indus tries common to man . are effected by the rise and' fall of agricultural pursuits. They are the underlying support for all business. Hence it is that we constantly nnd lawyer?, doctors, ministers, mer chants, laborers, : tradesmen, and all classes and' conditions of our people earnestly discussing the -varying condi tions effecting the agricultural industries of the country. 'It is for these reasons, well understood tp seriously effect every person no matter what may be their call ing or condition et Hie, that we con stantly find them in all pursuits of life discussing earnestly in the effort to learn everything available upon these import ant subjects because we are alike inter ested in the results and valuable informa tion 'Obtained Ik rough the scientific re search made by these-educational insti tutions established by the general govern ment purely ,'upoa agricultural aud in dustrial lines,. I realize that roti have come here not to be wearied by any remarks of mine. but to investigate and learn the results of theecientifie research and questions which will be ably -handled by gentle men specially skilled therein. In behalf of the people of Benton county and City of Corvallis I take pleasure in extend ing to you a most hearty welcome and trust that you will find your stay among us both profitable and pleasant. Wells Items. The badly decomposed body of a dead man was found near the S. P. bridge across the , Luckia mute, between Suver and Parker station, Sunday. The body lay in a dense thicket, and was dis covered by James McLain, a resi dent of the vicinity. In the pocket ef the dead man's coat were found a five cent peice and a tneniorandam, but the latter con tained only a few figures and there was no other cine as to the identity. .of the remains. A re tfolter was found nearby, which ga?e foondation for the general supposition f self-destruction. The ballet had entered the tem ple, passed through the nead and was found in the hat which still ! covered the skull. From the condition of tfie " body, it is thought that death resulted at least two months ago. As nearly as can. be ascertained, deceased was aged between 24 and 30, and in life must have weighed 145 poondSi The clothing was in good condition and the toes of the sock that covered the feeS, were still clean, and white. An inquest was held by the coroner of Polk county, and because of the condition of the remains, a grave was made by the side of the corpse and burial took place without further cerefflony or de lay. The question - is: Whose son was he? . Mrs. Jacob Gulford and son, wfio have been visiting C. M. Vanderpool and fainilf , left Mon day for their home in Prineville. - Miss Mattie J.

During the course of the re cent farmers' meeting held at O A C, Dr. James Withyeobe,- of that institution, made the follow ing statements: ; The trouble with your land is that it cannot retain water. v We find that the fields have suffered and that is because of -the physi cal condition of the land being wrong. The recent failure of the wheat crop was not due to pests; 1 should ,. be attributed to the fault of the soil. In a sense. there is no new land any more in the valley. " Your pasture lands are not new. Thev have been run over by stock, arid the soil has consequently been drawn upon until the. plant" food has been exhausted. It must be re tained. Experiments "on this farm have, demonstrated beyond dispute fhat the only way to re tain the plant food is - by rotation of crops. If this is done there is no reason whv 40 bushels of wheat to the acre should not be a common thing. Here is a clover field. Yeu have a fair idea of the yield. This is how we work it: Sow clover on fall wheat in February, It makes late pasture. .: Next year it produces from 3 to 4 tons of hay per acre. The field is kept in clover another year, or the sod is broken upland sown to oats or father grain, or planted to some . cultivated crop, such, as corn Or potatoes. After that the field is again put in wheat, thus making a 4-year rotation. ' In sowing clover it is, highly desira ble to apply , about" 50 Or 75 pounds of land plaster to the acre for the yield will often in crease so ner cent thereby. -. The Tune rain often interferes with" the proper curinsr of clover nay, but if the clover field is pas tured with light stock', such , as sheep or calves, in early spring the maturing of the crop will be sufficiently delayed to overcome this difficulty. . Revenue Tax Repealed. Changes recently made in inter nal revenue taxes became effective July 1st. The items repealed which most directly touch the public are the 2-cent tax on every bank check, the 1 cent levied on express-receipts and the 1 cent affixed to telegraph ic messages. There are several other important . taxes . repealed, however, which will affect import ant interests,' and in many cases will reach the public. Among these are the stamps affixed to proprieta ry medicines, perfumery and other drugs, which have given so much annoyance to the thousands of druggists throughout the country. The 10-cent tax on bills of lading terminated on June SO, and the high tax on charter parties suffered the same fate. There are important modifications of the rates on beer and cigars, but these taxes are far from being abolished. Provision is made for the redemp tion of unused stamps, and checks With stamps imprinted, purchased under the war tax law. Additional Local. Dr. Lowe, the optician, is comiug soon.

Robert Glass and his sister, Miss Lilly Glass, accompanied by their brother Frank, arrived home, Sat urday, from Eastern Oregon.

Writing to the Gazette from Hope, Indiana, Sherman Seward expresses a desire to know more of the Willamette valley, "its crops, weather, fruit, etc." He says: "Here we are putting up our clover hay.
