It is said that a freight eneine picked the train up and brought it u. 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 deals consummated. It is thought that the ruliner price this fall will be from 12 to 13 cents. n In a recent letter to a friend in this city, Miss Blanche E. Riddle writes from her Douglas county home that she has two schools in view for this fall. Miss Riddle graduated from the 0 A C last month and is well qualified for each a pesition. Mauy sincere friends in this oity hope for her success. Leaving Portland at 7:30 yester day morning the first Sundiy train started on the Portland and Cor- vallis run. and if traffic continues as good as yesterday, the company will no doubt find the experiment a success. While no attempt bad been made to advertise the depart ure of the train, it was exceptionally well patronized. The train consist ed of two passenger coaches. At everv station of any size the train was met by bunebes of residents glad to see the inauguration of the 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 Telegram.

Mr. Robinett is a nephew of Joseph Yates, and was formerly a student of the agricultural college. The K. of P. lodge of this city are in receipt of an invitation to at tend the Knights of Pythias field meet and basket picnic at Eugene today. It is a matter of regret that affairs - have so shaped themselves that a delegation cannot be sent from the local lodge. The shooting match between the gun clubs of this city and Philo math, which was to have taken plaoe in this eity tomorrow has been postponed for a week. A couple of the members of the Philomath team were obliged to be absent tomorrow and this caused the postponement. Beginning Sunday evening at the United Evangelical church the pas tor will deliver a series of Sanaa evening 6ermons on "Problems Tha Perplex." The first of the series will be "Temptation." . Morning sermon, "bometning lor iliacn to do." A cordial invitation is ex-1 tended to all. ' 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 of tobacco when it was just plug, ging out; but the damsel who ask ed which cow gave the buttermilk is entitled to the whole bakery. Last summer we printed a cam munieation from a resident desiring seats to be placed under the maples in the court house yard. The seed sown last year has born fruit. Wo. Lane has placed some benches in the shade during the past few days and people, old and Young, can now hie themselves to this spot on a warm day and enjoy the fresh air and cool shade. 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, and thought Of the striking con trast' as compared with the dreadful condition? now existing in the East, and came home su premely happy. W. P. L 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 horses. 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 to the college "print shop" will prove to one that there is a move on in that quarter, Bulletins and matter f various character have to be Issued, and so press iag is the work that George B. Keady and his son, Walter, are 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, $2.05. Reed & Kellozp-'s grammar. three boeks, Maynard, Merrill & Go. ; exchange, 68 cents: retail, $1.25.' : Wentworth's arithmetic, two books, Ginn & Co. ; exchange, 36 cents; retail, 70 cents. Frye's geography, two books, Ginn & Co.: enchange, 00 cents; retail, $1.80. Speller, Reed's word lessons, one book, Maynard, Merrill & Co.; exchange, 10 cents; retail, 22 cents. Wheeler's - primer, W. H. Wheeler & Co. ; exchange, 15 cents; retail, 30 cents. Brook's mental arithmetic, Christopher, Sauer & Co.; two now in use; retail, 30 cents. Newland & Row's vertical writing, eight books, Heath & Co.; 6 cents straight. Thomas' - primary history-i Heath & Co. ; exchange, 30 cents; retail, 60 cents. Mr.' Scott oted for McMaster's history. Thomas': United States His tory, grammar grade, Heath & Co; exchange, 50 cents; retail, $1. 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 "Gavin." ; 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. - Additional Local Mrs. MVP.- Burnett and son, Leo, ieis Wednesday for a visit with Mrs. Burnett's mother at Baker City. The ladies of the Congregational church will give an ice cream social oa the lawn at the church next Sat urday afternoon and evening from 3 to 10. Ivan Daniel left yesterday for a trip a-wheel through Wheeler and 'Gilliam counties. He went by way of Portland and will be absent a month or six weeks. Mr. and Mrs. Thos. H. Miller, of Clearfield, Iowa, arrived yesterday on a visit with their son, F. L. Mil ler, ef this city. They will remain in Corvallis for a month or six weeks. A sequel to the little altercation at Philomath on the Fourth, be tween Dr. Loggan and J. W. Ingle, was the arrest of the doctor yester day on complaint of Mr." Ingle. The latter claims that he was as saulted and beaten. The Gazette will give the details later as they are brought out In the trial. Sam. T. Shaw, the prince of theat rical managers and general favorite of the publio died in Kansas City last week. About a year ago he had aa attack of brain trouble from which he never recovered. He made two appearances in Corvallis and for a time Jessie Shirley was his leading lady. Many of our theatre goers who remember him feel that his death has closed the career of a most clever and versa tile comedian. At the regular meeting Monday night the council found little busi ness to transact. Bills amounting to $500 on the general fund, and $94 on the street fund were allowed. The fire and water committee were instructed to confer with the water company concerning the putting in of a number ef hydrants. , A special meeting of the council will be held Monday evening for the purpose of discussing the matter of procuring additional hose for the fire com pany. ...

Mr. Moore, who was a brother ot Mrs. Wilkins, had won a rifle at a raffle and in examining it the weapon was dis charged, the ball passing through his heart. Mr. Wilkins left for Prineville Wednesday morning. Mr. Moore was a resident of Cor vallis some fifteen years aero and his many friends here " will ' be shocked at the announcement of his untimely death. Superintendent Henry French, of Benton county's exhibit to the state fair, informs us that the following further contributions have been made" to the exhibit: By Mrs. El vin Witham, cherries; Mrs. Ben Martin cherries and black currants; O. Martin, some excellent speci mens of raspberries over three fourths of an inch in diameter. The O A C experiment station has contributed 12 or 15 samples of strawberries and cherries. Mr. French states that Professor Lake and others connected with the sta tion have given valuable assistance in classifying grasses and in other ways. . - A Monroe correspondent gives the following account of the re union of the Ingram family last Sunday on Ingram island, four miles east of Monroe: The reunion eonsisted of Grandma Ingraham, aged 78, six children, 23 grand children and 17 great-grandchild ren; total, 47.
