arrangements wili be made for the
OAC band to accompany the home

At the regular meeting of the
firemen, last Monday- evening,
Harold Woodcock suggested that
tie boys of the fire company start
a band. The idea was favorably
received and a committee was ap
pointed to look into the matter and
report later. There is no reason
why the town should not have a
band and a fairly acceptable organ

many capable, performers. "Toot

Corvallis is a "dry town' un

the year. Now and then, on ac
count of a "bad cold," some of our
most substantial citizens swallow
a few drops of the ''ardent," but
only in sense of duty to the inner
man. A young man about town
called on an intimate friend also

giving him the wink, took him to a

About a week ago one of M. Ek's
horses was kicked by its mate and
had a leg broken. Mr. Ek sum
moned a veterinary surgeon from Al
bany and had the animal's leg set
and placed in a plaster paris cast.
The horse seemed to be doing all
right for a day Or two and then in
some manner the leg got out of the
cast and it was found necessary to
shoot the animal last Monday. It
was an animal of considerable value.

News comes from Salem, to the
effect that Senator W. M. Pierce,
of Umatilla and Union counties,
was appointed a rogent at OAC,
Feb. 8. This action was occasion
ed by the death of J. M. Church a
few days ago. Senator Fierce s term
will expire in 1912.
This county is to have a splendid
exhibit at the Lewis and Clark Ex

Mr. Wills is the father of Elmer
Wills, who at one time was attend

at the time. Mr. Wills, who is
now connected with the coll ge,
was living in this city at the time
of the great cloud burst at Heppner,
Or., a few years ago, and was a
heavy loser in the .disaster.
H. B. Miller, at one time presi
dent' of OAC, but lately Consul
General at Niuchwang, China, is at
present in Washington, D. C, and
a few days ago was presented to
President Roosevelt by Senator

Uonsul Miller very kindly and
praised him for his efficient service.
It is possible that President Roose

suggestion and find something
better for Cftosul Miller.

Corvallis ia now assured a second
bakery. The firm of W. T. & C.
E. Small are arranging to start a
bakery in this city in the course of
a couple of weeks.. They have the
brick on the ground and are al
ready at the task of building the
oven. The bakery will be located
in the confectionery establishment
of this firm and Charlie Small will
be the baker. This" is not "our
Charlie," but a distant relative of
his.- The baker arrived in this
city some two or three weeks aeo
from Marion county and is at presJ
ent superintending the ; work of
constructing the oven. .
A mass meeting of all citizens
is called for tonight by the stu
dents of OAC. The meeting
will be held at the court' bouse
and will be called to order at 7:30
o'clock. This is a demonstra
tion of the earnestness of the stu
dents in their endeavor to erect a
Christian Association building
adjacent the college.
The meeting is called that our
cit'zens may be given an oppor
tunity to express themselves on
the subject, make contributions,
or suggest ways and means for
raising funds. , "What assists the
college benefits the town, ' ' is an
old and true saying, and if we
can secure a prqper environment
we may expect even a greater
number of students than OAC at
present has enrolled. This will
help the town. Our business
men are sagacious and wise
enough to see the matter in its
true light and will, beyond doubt,
do the proper and liberal thing.
Many business men of the city
have already signified their.- will
ingness to assist in a substantial
manner, and many, prominent
members of OAC's faculty are
co-operating heartily with the
students in what they have un
dertaken. Something like $8,
000 have already been subscribed
and the building is how an assur
ed thing. Beyond doubt the ed
ifice will be erected this summer.
That . this meeting will be an
enjoyable one is evidenced by the
fact that the musical and orator
ical forces now under control of
those in charge of the' union
meetings in progress at the Pres
byterian church-will attend v and
contribute to the enjoyment of
the evening. Be sare to attend.
Word has reached this city to the
effect that members of the legisla

the forenoon by special train and
proceed at once to the eo'lege, where
preparations will be made 10 receive !
On this occasion a special session
of school will be held and evry :
studei t will be, found in his or her '
classroom when the legislat ors visit
the college.. Work will be in prog
ress in afl mechanical departments, ;
in the labratories, blacksmith shop,'
etc., in fact, the usual daily routine
work will be carried on. The sen
ators and representatives will only
be here about two hours, but dur
ing that time the college and
everything in town shall be at their
. They will be banqueted at OAC,
after which it is understood they
will proceed by special train to the
coast, how long to remain is not
known. We bid the legislative
body a hearty welcome and let all
unite to make them feel our sinceri
ty in to doing.

Pirating Foley's Honey , and Tar.
Foley & Co., of Chicago, originated
Honey, and Tar as a throat and lung
remedy, and on account of the great
merit and popularity of Foley's Honey
and Tar many imitations are offered for
the genuine. Ask for Foley's Honey
and Tar and refuse any substitute offered
as no other preparation will give the
same satisfaction. It is mildly laxative.
It contains no opiates and is safest for
children and delicate persons.
Fred R. Drew has conceived
an idea which he thinks, will,
it carried out, draw attention
to the Lewis & Clark Exposition.
We adopt his plan, but pro
pose some amendments. The
following paragraph - will give
somefaeaof what' he ad vacates:
"Fred R". Drew . writes to the
Exposition management from
New York City that he is engag
ed in an attempt to reach and or
ganize the better element in the
East who look forward to going
West, and he proposes a unique
and original method in promot
ing a semi-fraternal - organization
to be known as "Westward Ho
Crusaders." Two divisions will
be formed of Atlantic and Pacific
Coast people, and a part of the
plan is to drive a prairie schooner
to this Coast from the liast, tol
lowing the route covered by Lew'
is and Clark 100 years ago."
. This is all very well, but why
not make it realistic? Suppose
that arrangements be made where
by a horde of Apaches could
swoop down with a whoop and
a dash upon the little band ot
"trailers" and secure a few scalps.
If all details were given careful
attention, as per- amendment, we
think that in the way of adver
tising the Exposition nothing
more could be desired.
