that school books are net obtainable

- Everything is on the move al
the big prune orchard. Prune
picking' began at the orchard
Monday, and ever 500 bushels of
praaes were picked. Tha fol
lowing, day over 1,000 bushels
ttere gathered. By Wednesday
evening all of the taanels of the
big dryer were filled, and they
hold over 2.000 bushels. It is
estimated tka by this, time ia
the seighberhoed of 5,000 bash
els will have been gathered since
Monday. The dryer was fired
up, Tuesday, with a single boiler.
This -was found to be nnequal to
the demand made upon it for
heat and the following afternoon
another boiler was eoaaected.
Manager Johnson says that in
the main everything is moving
along as well as could be expect
ed. Of course, the machinery,
gearing, tracks of the tunnel,
etc., are all new, aad it is only
to be expected that there will be
more or less, friction. However,
within a day or so everything
will be running smoothly aad
visitors will see a sight well

Jost now everything In the
way of real) estate is assuming
new values. Dariaf the past
few months many eastern people
have come west in search of new
hemes, where climate, general
heal thtulaess ; and fair opportu
nities for . 'business enterprises
present themselves. Many of
these people have chosen Bea
ton county as the nearest perfect
of all places ascsrdinz to their
deas. .', .
Among tne new-comets are
men of means who have been in
easiness in other states and who
have the necessary, cash and1
energy to Insure success in aay
country. - They will help to
baild up Corvallis; they will also
go into the country aad buy cp
farms. In many instances the
result will be the division ef
many of our large farms. When
the large farms - are cut into
small ones the; land will be bet
ter tilled aad the 'result will be
a greater yield per acre. An
other reason why people are com
ing to this locality to make their
homes is on account of the ad
vantages oflered. for the eduea-,
tion of the yonng. Corvallis
has a splendid system of public
schools. Above all, we have the
State Agsicaltural .College loca
ted here. This, it is Sate to say,
is the ereatest s-institution : of its
kind in the .West, It is a fix-
tare. It has a great endowmeat,
is thoroughly equipped with all
the latest and best apparatus,
and has an effiaient corps of in-,
structors. . .
This year Oregon has beea
blessed with abundant crops,
fraits of all kinds have done well,
g'raaeries . and baras are well
filled, stock is looking well, and
every-thing should assist ia
promoting a feeling of hope afli
good cheer. -'To those who.have
lately arrived it this section it is
suggested they visit the state
fair at Salem daring -the latter
part of this moath. What they
will see there ia the line of egri
enltaral aad hortlcaltaral exhib
its, fine stock aad various other
features that are wholly ours,
will cause them to feel glad that
they chose Oregon for their home.
