Indications of a good price for
berjs this fall are not so flattering
at present as they were a couple of
months ago. Buyers are not eager,
and we once at present ranges from
9 to U cents per pound, with few

that the ruliner price this fall will
be from 12 to 13 cents. n

been made to advertise the depart

well patronized. The train consist
ed of two passenger coaches. At
everv station of any size the train
was met by bunebes of residents

new schedule, it was the nrst
time In the history that towns on
the West Side road received their
Sunday papers and that this ser
vice was appreciated was shown by
the crowd that gathered to greet
the train on its return trip in the
afternoon. The inauguration of
this train will make it possible for
people in the city to visit friends in
the country without interfering
with work, and for that reason no
doubt will gain much iu popularity

The city girl who expressed so
much sympathy for the poor farmer
because of his cold job in harvest
ing the winter wheat, is equal in
agricultural knowledge to the one
who expressed a desire to sea a field

is entitled to the whole bakery.

A few days ago Henry French
brought a magnificent cluster of
Crimson Ramblers to this office.
These flowers are as beautiful aa
they are rare in this vicinity and
were the first we have ever seen.
Mr. French states that they .are
quite hardy and do well in this
country. A few will be found to be
an adornment to any flower gar
den. Tomorrow the building com
mittee of the board of regents will
hold a meeting for the purpose of
locating the site of the new horti
cultural hall and to determine ether
matters connected with its construc
tion. It is thought that the foun
dation will be laid this fall and
early next summer the building
will be rushed to completion. It is
surmised that the foundation will
be of granite brought from the Cas
cade mountains. ,.
We note that Prof. J. B. Hor
ner's tribute to the late Prof. E. B.
McElroy which was delivered re
cently before tho Memorial Associ
ation of this city has been published
by a number of our exchanges.
He likens McEIroy'8 life work
among the school childreu of this
state to "a drop ef dew on the leaf
in the early morning that mirrors
and absorbs the whole sky above it,
whether, it be blue and clear, or
whether it be covered with clouds."
E. B. Horning was stricken down
April 1st. with a complication of
diseases. -.First he had typhoid
fever and when he began to recover
from that kidney troubles of a se
rious nature ' developed and he was
obliged to undergo a surgical opera
tion. At different periods his con
dition was considered most critical,
but he is now steadily improving
and be will ' soon be himself again
it is hoped- The first time he. was
down town since April 1st wan on
the 4th of July, when he was driven
about in a carriage for an airing.
Un Tuesday afternoon, our
friend, Joseph Yates, loaded bis
two-horse automobile with
bottles and grub, hitched np his
praneiflg stead, squared himself
in the seat, drove around to oar
place of business and insisted on
the writer making a flying visit
with him to Sodaville. We
rather hesitated, knowing that
he was tongue-tied and ; fearing
that we would be compelled to
do all. the talking, bat finally ac
cepted his gracious offer and we
were soon speeding across the
valley in fine style, arriving at
our destination at 6 p. .
After anchoring "Billy" and
his mate and laying aa ample
supply of clover hay within their
reach, we proceeded to "camp
out" in the presence of that
bountiful supply of grub.
At the spring were carpenters
and plasterers making some im
provements in and about the
springs, cleaning the reservoir,
cementing the floor, and making
general repairs about the ,baild
ing, a thing fflBch needed, ' and
which they will bo able to do
with the $1,000 appropriated by
the last legislature. It afforded
us great " pleasure . to note the
prosperous condition of the coun
try; the immense piles of hay,
now almost all in the cock; and
it is now especially gratifying to
note that instead of the ordinary
crop of cheat great fields of clov
er and some timothy could be
seen; thus Indicating that Cur
farmers are awake to their inter
ests.. .-. ;
The mowing machines and
hayrakes were visible on all sides.
The rich fields of golden yellow
wheat with heads bending as if
beckoning to the husbandman to
stake ready for the harvest, and
not a bug to be seen the "bug
gers" not having made their ap
pearance this season as predicted.
The oats also promise an abund
ant yield and an occasional piece
of rye could be seen, one of which
"Father" Yates insisted had
made a luxuriant growth of at
least 7 feet . in height. In the
pastures were great hards ef
sheep and cattle rolling in fat,
and by the roadside milk cans
were waiting to be transported
to the creameries. The fruit
crop is also wonderful to behold,
and garden track is abundant.
Then, too, as an evidence of that
deep and lasting prosperity we
noticed numerous barns in course
of (Jbastruction We looked in
wonder and amazement at the
bountiful harvest now awaiting,

The Hand of Providence.
A most exeiting runaway is
reported to have occurred a short
time ago in this city. From
what is learned, it appears that
Jacob Blrrmberg and his "one
horse ' shay" were transacting
some Business along . "junk"
lines in the alley back of the es
tablishment of John H. Simpson.
Jake beeame aumiadful of the
mettle of his steed and left him
unguarded for a moment. Some
thin? very, unusual must have
occurred to - frighten ; the old
charger, for he dashed out of the
alley at a pace that made onlook
ers hold theii breath. His Old
less worked like the were
wooden, but he was doing his t
most and most likely thoSglt he
was setting a paee that - weald
have done him credit twenty-five
years ago. When he was. fairly
oat on the street the eld herse es
pied a buneh ef grass near the
hardware store of R. M. Wade &
Co. and could go so farther. In
his runaway tha old animal trav
eled at least 150 feet but lackily
no damage . resulteQY it is
thought by many of per citizens
to be providential that , grass
crows so premiscnonsly about
town, and in the face of the evi
dence famished in this case the
task of convincing people to the
contrary seems doubly hard. We
have crass - enoagh growing in
the streets to step a herd of
Everything; Moves.
Everything is teemia? with
life and energy at thetagrieul
tural college these days.. Quite
a swarm of painters are plying
their brushes, thereby materially
changta? tha appearanoa of va
rious buildings. Men are at
work digging the ditch tram the
heating plant to the armory for
the purpose ot laving pipe for
the heating of the latter building
In the administration building
carpenters and plasterers . are
making things hum la tha way
of remodeling and preparing for
certain plumbing work that is to
be done. Gardeners are at work
about the college campns beauti
fying the grounds in every con
ceivable manner.
The heavier work in connec-
tiua with the college farm also
employs a number of men at
present. In fact, sothine is be
ing neglected frora tha most
scientific professional work down
to trapping the -industrious and
most officious enemy of the gar
dener, the gopher. After one
has noted all of these signs of
progress and Industry a stroll in

prove to one that there is a move
on in that quarter, Bulletins

employed all t&e time.
Text-Books Chosen.
Tht board of text-hooks com
missioners has selected the books
to be used in the common schools
ia the state for the next six
years. Ginn & Co.' get 75 per
Ia making the awards the beard
voted as a unit, the selections
having been agreed upon before
hand. The concensus of opinion
expressed by a number" of book
men is that a reduction of 10 per
cent, in the cost of books ia like
ly to be one result ef the selec
tion of books by the commission.
That there will be a gain in the
general character of the text
books, seems to be certain. The
adoption of the vertical system
of writing is oae ot the most rad
ical changes made by . the Com
mission. The books adopted are
here shown by series, the prices
being for a set of the series:
Cyr's readers, five books, Ginn
& Co. ; exchange, $1,03; retail,

After the vote Bad been taken
President H. W. Scott stated to
the book men that the members
of the board had been studying
the merits of the text books for
about four months, that they had
held a conference, compared
notes and investigated prices
and that the selections made
were the result of that confer
ence. Miss Barry's Recital.
No more charming woman has
bee, heard ia recital in Corvallls
than Miss Margaret Barry. She
delights mora by her winning
personality than ner wont as an
artist. Her every movement is
grace personified ; her voice is as
seductive as a lute, though lack
ing in richness and dramatic
power; her smile as alluring as a
siren's. But if one can forget
this oatward . charm, and coldly,
consider the merits of her per
formance there is much which
makes extravagance praise ful
some flattery. C -v--.
Her timbers from Eugene
Field, "Little Boy Blae," and
''S'eein' Things;" "Phylis," and
the second selection from Les
Miserables, show her to best ad
vantage, and in these her inter
pretation is little short 1 perfect.
To those who nave iieara miss
Katheryne Oliver in "The Lit Ia
Minister, 1 Miss Barryu. reading
is disappointing. She has neither
the dialect nor the conception.
Her rendition is pleasing, bat
not masterful. True, she makes
a fascinating "Babbie," but this
is onl y because Mis9 Barry ner
self is not less witching than the
heroine of 'The Littla Minister,"
and she exereises this" faculty
in swaying her audience, much
as "Babbie" does to begaile
; Miss Barry is in mauy respects
a remarkable woman, and while
it is too much to say that she
ranks with the greatest readers
of the age, she certainly deserves
many of the kind things that
have been said of her. -
