seriously hurt a few days ago while
riding on his bicycle near Wells.
He was going down an incline on
the bicycle path at neck-break sneed
and suddenly came right onto a
pile of rails that had been placed
on the path. He was throwa vio
lently to the ground tnd badly
bruised. The wheel was smashed
and done Up generally and its owner
was ' obliged to walk to the utat.inn
and take tho train back.
The little son of Dr. WithycSmbe
had an experience with gunpowder
Sunday which gave hiui the im

quicker than lightning. He poured
a quantity of powder into a can
and dropped in a match, hoping to
jump away before the explosion
came, but he didn't. As a result
his faee was badly burned and his
eyes slightly injured. Dr. Catfley
was called and soon had the suffer
er testing easily. It is believed
that no serious results will follow.
The agricultural college is doing
a good work by inviting the farmers
to Corvallis" and giving them the
practical experience of seeing how
a silo is made and filled. In the
East ensilage has become a neces
sity to the dairy interests. If more
farmers would take advantage of
the valuable opportunities to get
practical lessons from the college in
farming along some of these new
lines their interests would be ma
terially advanced. Oregon City

Elbert Witham started to Albany
with his family on the Fourth. He
was driving a team of young horses
and the sudden approach of the ex
cursion train scared the team and
caused them to run up an embank
ment upsetting the hack. Mr. With
am and his family were thrown out,
but Mr." Witham held on to the
reins and Stopped the team. One
of Mr. Witbaru's hands .was some
what hurt, but the other members
of the family escaped with fright
and slight - bruises. 1 he wagon
was righted and the damage sus
tained by it repaired sufficiently for
them to proceed en their way to the
County Court convened as usual,
last Wednesday ' Jaly 3rd. Some
fairly large bills were allawed and

The session of the court only lasted
one day. . The most important mat
ttr that was considered was the in
surance of the court house and its
contents. An insurance of $35,000
was taken out, the risks being
taken by various companies who
have local agents in this city. The
premiums paid for these policies ag
eregated U. Ihis insurance is
taken out for a period of three years
from date. Altogether there is
$40,000 insurance carried on the

A Blaze of Glory. -
The picnic of Benton county
ended in a blaze of glory; in Al
sea last Tuesday, July 2nd." The
Modern Woodman and the
Grangers of Atsea united on this
occasion. Everything passed of
as had been arranged. The pro
gram was excellent and nothing
was leit undone to make the day
a pleasant one. ,
There were contests between
the pupils who recited. Freddie
Tharp winning one of the prizes
and the other successful contest
ant's name was not obtained,
One of the most pleasing features
ot the day was the free for all
contest during the. noon hour.
Tha contestants were evenly
matcned. iiut alter a careful ex
amination of the credited points,
it was decided that E. H. Bel
knap, J. F. Yates and Sup't G. W.
Denman tied for first place. Itis
said that each of these gentlemen
cleaned their plates, as well as
the table for several feet around
them. The dinner was pro
nounced by all to be tbe best ever
prepared by the good cooks of un
surpassed Alsea. The fair ladies
of this valley had prepared every
thing that would in the least de
gree please and satisfy the large
crowd that had assembled. If
any of the" boys 'bfr old Benton
are in search of a good cook it
will be well for them to quietly
enter the peaceful and beautiful
valley Alsea, make due investiga
tion, before .closing the contract.
Tho addresses of Mr. E. H.
Belknap on . "Woodcraft" and
Mr. J. F. Yates on "The Grange"
were especially , entertaining,; .in
teresting and well - received.
Many complimentary remarks
were made on each effort. Dur
ing the day there was presented
to Atta Grace Oglesby and Lillie
Webster eighth grade county
graduation diplomas by Sup't
Denman m a few words.
A. very pretty feature of the
program was the procession of
the Woodmen anrT Grangers, It
is estimated that there were be
tween 150 and 200 persons in
line. The Dusty band furnished
the best of music and plenty of
it. These boys are fixtrnes when
it comes to Alsea picnics. They
have played at every ?-pleaie in
this valley for the i past three or
tour years. - J udging from pres.
ent indications they will continue

One of th features of the pa
rade at Albany n Ahe Fenrth of
July was the :six-year-old son f
T. W. Dilley, of this city. The
little fellow is; quite a celebrity
in bicycle circles.! i He ridei a
12-inch gear wheel !that (was
made for him by his fttber.V, On
thft ' morning of " the-, Fourth,
dressed np in the style of TJncIg
Sam,'! j the f little lad started
awheel 1 -to .Albany in company
with his sister and father. rThe
ride was s made in about an hour
and a half and the boy .was quite
fresh on his 'arrival, w While
riding ;the- paraee .ae vras
cheered from start to . finish and
caused considerable comment
1 He : wis " greatly phased v -with
himself and the sensation he was
ereatiBg ,5- and grinned - quite
Droaaiy new ana then. He rode
around town all day and had a
great- lime. Daring the day he
mounted one 01 the horses .of the
merfy-go-round, and, to prove to
th po'pulace that he was "all
right," he rode with - his hands
isi his pockets. In the evening
nc starred nome ana when Be got
on the Benton county side of the
Willamette - there was a oriza
fighl in progress. This he de
termined .to i witness and when
his lathee told him that it was
not the ; proper thing for-him to
see he raised "Old Ned." He
told his father that he had never
seen a prize fight and now, that
ne nan a enance of his life-time,
his father was going to spoil it
all. He told his father that he
never let him see anything.
Dilley, the elder, relented and
Young: America saw, the fight
After it was all over they came
on home. The " boy was some
what tired, but stood the trip
mighty well. V
During the coming winter Mr.
Dilley intends making his son a
fine wheel that will be mere sait-
able to bis size. There art very
few six-year-old boys thai ean
make a 30 Or 40-mile ride ia a
day and not' have to be carried

Sunday Train a Success.
The first Sunday mail train
ever to arrive over the S. P. to
Corvallis made the " ronnd trip
from Portland to this city last
Sabbath. .. While the number of
passengers, to arrive -here was
small, the Oregoniaa states that
the traffio handled was fully up
to the week-day business.
This, oonsidermg the fact that
no attempt had been made to
stimulate business for this train
and a great many people were
not 'aware that it would run, is
regarded as an indication that
the Sunday service has come to
stay. If so many patronize the
train on its first trip it is deemed
certain that more will travel on
it when it shall become known
as a permanent institution.
leaving Portland -at 7:30 Sun
day morning the two coaches
were pretty well filled. Most of
these passengers left the train at
near.by stations, but a number
made the run. through. At
nearly every station there was a
company of eitizens, more or less
numerous, to welcome the new
The bulk of the West Side

Going into Portland ; the train
tin between McMinnville
and Hillsboro so that everv seal-
in the train was fully occupied.
This seldom happens on week
days. The train " crew - which
started out ia the morning with
the firmly- fixed aotioa that the
hew train would be a failure,
was obliged to abandon that no
tion before getting back and to
admit that the first day had been
surprisingly successful. The
new train brings additional work
for the trainmen, so they were
not disposed to boom it nnneces-,
sarily. It is deemed certain that
this will prove the most popular
train on the road when it shall
become known along tha line. .
Suaday's train was in charge of
Conduetor M. C. Webster and
Engineer . Joseph Kehoe. The
service was excellent in every

Old residenters will remember
Nat Ste-ffart, who was raised on
the -old Stewart farm north of
Corvallis a mile or two. In time
he drifted to Santa :; Barbara
county, ?: California, and ; 'was
elected sheriff there. Last year
he paid his old home a visit. He
was tha , same "hale fellow well
met" and wis given a warm wel
come. Since,; his: last election
his opponent contested the legal
ity of, theballot, al tHonga jn at
was given a majority 6f"i45 V Otes.
A recounti was made and many
votes' were cast aside and even
then Mr; Stewart eame off victor
and the eenr'f declared ' him the
sheriff. In alreceat letter to rela
tives in "this citj Mrr Stewart,
speaking f the contest,"' says:

swinging back and forth between

Mr. Stewart hopes to again

Investigation has revealed the se
cret that has caused so many eggs
to be marketed in Corvallis. It is
a well-known fact that when a hen
does not see the egg she has . laid
her disappointment is bitter in the
extreme. It is now learned that
the poultrymen of this vicinity are
aware of this weakness on her part
ad. haTe so arranged the nests in
their hen houses that the new-born
egg rolls out of sight. The hen, not
seeing the frnit of her labor, ' ap
pears to think that she has been
mistaken and lays another egg at
once, and so on. . This is said to be
why so many eggs arrive in Cor
vallis. , .

speaking of the recent farmer's
meeting in this eity: Dr. James

the farmers of Oregon. . This may
seem an extravagant statement but
me trutn of it will be fully ac
knowledged ten years from now.
To his work and enthusiasm is
largely due the change that is tak
ing place on Oregon farms a change
that will surely soon double the
cash income from the land, besides
gradually restoring tho virgin fer
tility 01 the worn-out soils and con
serving the richness of the acres
