After an absenci of ten year,
Professor Ed Lyman, now of
Shanghai, China, visited id
friends in Corvallis this week.
Tea yeare ago Professor Lyman
was a fellow student with the
Gazette man at the Agricul
tural College. After two years
in that institution he went to
California and entered Stanford
university, graduating in the
same class with Professor Shel-
ton, now a member of the facul
ty of the University of Oregon.
Mr. Lyman then taught in a
high school in Southern Califor
nia for oce year, and' later was

Three years ago he went to
China to accept the chair of

school ia Shanghai,

thus early in life i$ no sarprise to
his friends, who recognized in
him in his first years at the O A

and deserve success. Tuesday,
he visited the college, and at the

The Chinaman is quick to learn,
but slow to reason. He ; is stu
dious, thoroughly in earnest,
and eager to acquire. His featsof
memory are remarkable, but when
required to resort tb original re

him. The Chinese system of ed

The annual report of the Ore
gon Agricultural College and the
Experiment Statioft for the year
ending June 30, 1901, has just
reached us. . It is full of inform
ation pertaining to the college
and station affairs. In his re
port, Dr. James Withycombe,
vice-director or the experiment
station, touches on "animal hus
bandry" in a way that will be of
interest to stock raisers. Speak
ing of oattle and sheep he says:
The results of the experiment
of feeding steers wefe not satis
factory, owing to the continued
wilduess of ths animate and
their failure to become reconcil
ed to confinement. . For this
reason they could not be induced
to eat sufficient food . to give
profitable returns. This peirits
to the importance of aa eflort on
the part ef farmers to maintain a
more highly domesticated cendi-
tion of the live stock of the
Experiments in sheep feeding
under sneltered ana unsneltered
conditions were undertaken. For
this work 12 . fall shorn wether
lasibs were selected, which were
as uniform both in size and
breeding as could be obtained.
These were divided into two lots.
Six of these lambs werd placed
in 5 a clean enclosure without
shelter, and the otner six were
sheltered in a conifof table, clean,
well ventilated and welj lighted
pen. ine rations of the two
lots were the same, and they ate
practically aft equal quantity,
except the waste was slightly
greater with the nesheltered,
lot 1. " - ' r
At the end of the feeding lot 1
had gained 155 lbs. ; lot 2, 149
lbs. They were then shorn and
lot 1 produced ai lbs. of un
washed wool; lot 2, 27.75 10S'
Ten pounds of wool irom each
lot were carefully tub-washed and
dried, with ths result that the
sample taken from lot i. after
this treatment, weighed 7.75
lbs.; lot 2, 8 lbs. This showed
that while lot 1 made the larger
gain in live weight, lot 2
the more. profitable gain,
the value of the wool was
into account. '

Wednesday afternoon at the

this city, whose daughter, Alice,
was united in marriage to Mr.
Robert C. Herron. The parlors
were tastefully decorated with
ferns and flowers. At 2 p. ni.
Mrs. Fred Buchanan took her
place at the piano, and while the
strains of the . weddinqr march
filled the house, the bride and
groofli entered unattended and
took a position ia the center of i
the front parlor, where an im-!
pressive ceremony, including the I
presentation of the wedding ring 1
bv the grooln, was pronounced
by the Rev, Frank L. Moore.
The bride was attired in white
ordandie and carried a boquet of
white cosmas. If a thought fol

Clarence Starr returned home,
Tuesday, from Seaside, Oregon,
where he had been employed for
several months in a sawmill.
He relates an amusing story at
the expense of the little pnrnp-kin-vine
railroad that runs from
Warrenton to Seaside. While
en route home, traveling over
this line, the train slowed down,
that is, it went slower than
osual, and the whistle was re
peatedly bifcwn in vain effors to
"shoo" a cow off' the track. It
seemed impossible to make her
give the right of way and a
wearied passenger finally agreed
to give her a start, which he did.
She seemed qmte alarmed at the
demonstrations of the passenger
and, throwing her tail to the
breeze, continued her way on
down the track at her liveliest
gait. The ' passenger climbed
back onto the "whole train"
and the engine was turned loose
to make up the time lost. After
about half" an hour's run the
train was again slowed down
and the shrill whistle resounded
aloag the coast. The passenger
inquired what was the matter
now. He was answered by the
conductor who stated that they
had caught up with the co
A Wonderful Plow.
Editor Gazette. We had
quite a little exeitement the
other day at Hugh Click's, where
a field test was made ef the Ben
ecia Disc Plow, which is handled
by J. H. Simpson. Several of
the farmers gathered in to see it
work, as we are all looking for
something new in the plow line.
The lightness of draft and the
excellent character ' of the work
are pronounced the finest ever
seen in this part ef the conn
try by all present. It- worked
eqaally well in black and red
dobs and ' prarie soil. Three
horses -drawing a 2-disc .plow,
cutting 12 inches each and 8
inches deep, are worked no hard
er than they would be if draw
ing a 16-itseh walking plow at
the same depth, and the soil is
tnrned over and pulverized in a
far better manner than any
mould-board plew can possibly
da the work. One man and
four horses with ihis plow can de
as much work, and do it better,
than two men and six or eight
horses do with, walking plows.
