Arrangements are almost perfect

load of. freight she has taken out

of water in the Willamette is about

Mrs. Louise J. Stewart.
Mrs. Louise J. Stewart died in
this city at 12 o'clock last Friday
night. , Her death resulted from
what may be termed old age, and
she : was 1 living . at the time with
her daughter,' Mrs. Henrietta
., Sfa th wife of James
Stewart, a prominent farmer of
this county for many years, but
who died in 1906. Mrs. Stewart
was born in 182 1 and came to Ore
gon in 1851. , Her' husband and
herself settled on a donation land
claim about three miles north of
this city on the Albany road, and
alter the location of- their home
stead resided in : Benton county
continuously until death overtook
them. They were both highly
respected people. '
; All her life she was quite a de
termined woman. She had been
ailing somewhat of late, but her
condition did not seem serious
enough to warrant: undue anxie
ty. She was not confined to her
bed, strictly speaking before her
death. The day before she died,
she did not feel very well and
was persuaded to remain in bed
until a later hour than was her
usual habit. On the day of her
death she remained in her bed a
considerable portion of the day,
but was up for awhile in the af
ternoon. She complained of the
fact that she had not been up all
day . and made light of her con
dition. Her death was more the
result of old age; than ' anything
else, as she was aged 84 years,
She still possessed the old home
stead north of this city.
She is survived by five chil
dren, ; Mrs. : Henrietta Randall,
Mahalla Stewart, Tehial Stewart,
Lafe Stewart and Melissa McMa
The funeral services were held
yesterday at the home of Mrs,
Randall at 2 o'clock in the af
ternoon and were conducted by
Rev. Frank E. Tones, , of the
Christian church.: The remains
were interred in Crystal Lake
Benton County Sawmills. ,
Felger was in from
Philomath, Saturday, and he re
ported that it was his understand-
ing.that the Benton Countv Lum
ber Co. 's mill would begin oper.
ations, Monday (yesterday). This
mill has a capacity for sawing
about 40,000 feet of lumber per
day. It. operated at its full capa
city a large number, of men wil
find employment here in the mil
and woods ' together. Logging
for a mill that, saws ' so many
thousand feet per day is an un
dertaking that will keep quite a
number of men very active. .
Such an industry as this is a
splendid thing for any country
it creates a pay roll, which is the
life of a community. TJhis mill
saws .more,, fir . .tiian any other
kind of lumber. " ' There was a
time when fir was not considered
good for lumber, shut 'r that time
has passed and its merits are now
everywhere recognized and con
sequently , there is a strong de
mand for the product.
Mills of all kinds are good for
a people where there is a market
for their output. The sawmill
here at Corvallis is of far more
value to the people of this' com
munity than is realized by many
of our citizens. With its large
capacity it . follows . that , many
men are employed and that is
what counts for; a working
people. , Something to do is the
thing. Mr. Strong's mill gener
ally has -something for a - man . to
do. ; A great deal - of money is
brought into Benton county by
sawmill men and large sums that
would otherwise be sent abroad
for- building material - remains at
home. Money in- our pockets is
better than money in'' some olher
fellows' ' jeans, ' V and almost any
kind : of a : head can figure that
out. We believe that the major
ity of our '-'people 1 are becoming
alive to the wisdom , of patron
izing home industries.
Seeking a Good Site. -
Lieut. Quinlan, ''commandant
at c OAC, went , to Portland durr
ing. the flatter part of last week
for the purpose of arranging the
details of a io-days' encampment
of OAC cadets, at, the Exposition

ized5 to undertake by;tfie'board jof

1 cure a good camping site for about
500 men and wfc' Heat he" has
been very successful- in his en

sirous that the' Fair co poration

cadets to be in attendance on this
occasion, that they might en
