Of Interest to Benton County
- People by Special
Last week closed with the hot
test day, but one, for thirty years,
in Portland, and the mass of
sweltering humanity at the Fair
grounds were willing to give the
weather bureau man all the back
ing he needed in -corroborating
such a statement. It was awful.
Several new features have been
added to the Agricultural booth,
particularly in the line of dried
fruits. They look, well aad have
attracted considerable attention.
Still, the cry is for more.
Among the Benton county vis
itors ot the week, we noticed
Ralph T." Henies, of Philomath,
who was particularly interested
in the Fine Arts exhibit. Still,
nature had some attraction for
him, particularly the pretty sam
pies dressed in white, attending
the various booths.
h,. A. Reed, ot Alsea, was an
onlooker who Dut in his time to
good advantage. Mr. and Mrs.
Martin and Chas. McHenry and
family also registered at the Agri
cultural booth. Miss Paulina
Kline passed a pleasant day and
enjoyed the novel sights found in
the several buildings. Dick Smith
put in wnat.time he could spare
Irom the trail attractions in study
ing the newest things in the bard
ware and machinery line. Dick
doesn't take much interest in
fashion exhibits, but he said there
was one thing in that line he did
not like, and that was the "high
collars." They were altogether
too numerous in and around the
Fair. We found out afterwards
that the only "high collars" were
on the glasses of beer. The dis
pensers of Lager must certainly
be strong temperance advocates,
if not in theory, certainly in prac
tice, as a person would have to

he could gather together enough
good .red beer, from under the
crown of foam which decorates
the glasses as served,' to prove it
in the slightest degree intoxicat
ing. ... V ;:-V- - ,-
Among the visitors who ;were
formerly Corvallis residents we
noticed Ridge Draper, , an ex
student of O AC, on his way from
Prinevillets San Francisco. Geo.
Paul and wife were- out on Fri
day. George we beg his par
don-rrG. Lester, though he has
made his mark as a teacher in the
Dramatic Art, is nevertheless still
- a student, and the amount of
time he is willing to put in study
ing the hero and villiam in the
"Gay Paree" show is a fair indi
cation of his love for his chosen
profession. We - certainly wish
him all success in his efforts.
To the Fair visitor who is look
me tor novelties, no exhibit can
be more attractive -than the In
fant Incubators, on the Trail. As
nothing can appeal to humanity
as much as humanity, this show
ing of prematurely born "mites
of humanity,'! as they were term
ed by the Spieler, is alike fascin
ating and interesting;
"Prior to the invention of the Infant
Incubator over 80 per cent of the prema
tarely born perished, but in the present
day over 80 per cent of these unfortunate
- mites can be saved by the "mechanical
mothers," aided by : scientific sanitary
methods. - .
The "Infant Incubators" on the Trail
show seven of these miracles of modren
science, each containing its living, breath
ing, straggling little soul, fighting brave
ly for the life otherwise denied but for the
'Incubator."' . ,
Pure, sterilized air, cleanliness
scientific knowledge rightly ap
plied, and loving care win in th
' end, and the child is returned
its loving, natural parents, strong
er and" healthier by reason of its
artificial rearing. No person who
loves humanity ': for humanity'
sake should fail to see this fascin
ating exhibit.
Great credit is certainly due
' the employers of the various car
lines for their masterly work on
the Fourth of July. Just think
of It ! They took home from the
Fair grounds, and the adjoining
heights, between 9 and 12 o'clock
that evening, fully fifty thousand
people, without an accident. It
is a record of which they can cer
tainly be proud.

The Oregonian seems never to
count the cost when on the eve of
an expression. For an utterance
in a recent issue the big daily is
being quite fiercely assailed by
the little bow-wows. Governor
Chamberlain js billed to leave the
state to attend a convention of
the Elks. Of course, if the gover
nor elects to make this trjp there
is no power to say him nay.
The Oregonian contends that
just at present, in view of the
fact that Oregon has so many
notable guests within her borders
visiting the Exposition it would
have been more fitting on' the
part of the governor, as ' the first
man ot the state, to be "at home"
to the guests, rather than off on
an Elk's convention. For this
statement the big daily is being
severely condemned hy some ol
its satellites. While the writer
might have couched his utter
ances in different language, ther.e
appears a gram of truth in the
statement lust the same. The
paragraph in, question is as fol
lows : . ;
The governor of, Oregon is to
leave the state for a month or
more. He is to go off to a con
vention of "The Elks," some
where to go at this special time
in the history ot Oregon, when
the state is inviting all peoples
of all states and all nations to
her. - Doubtless s,The Elks" are
very important. "And doubtless
the governor of Oregon will deem
himself a more important: figure
among the Eastern Jtviks or stags
or bulls or buffaloes than among
the people of Oregon during the
Lewis and Clark Fair.

A fair-sized audience greeted
Virgil A. Pinkley on his appear
ance at the Presbyterian . church
ast Tuesday evening. Mr. Pink
ey, although this was his premier
appearance m this city, was : not
by fame unknown to many of our
people and they , were prepared
for what; was of the best in the
way of elocution. ; 1
la this expectation - they were
not disappointed in the least de
gree. He is gifted with great
versatility, has full sense of the
serious and humorous, and-rthere
is a peculiar, indefinable "some
thing" that gives a charm to his
work and-stamps it as most legit
imate. -
As a rule an adult in a child
piece or impersonation is not
good for the simple reason that
from a child to a "grown "up"
person there is too great a step.
However, there is a charm about
Mr. Pinkley's work in this line
that is irresistable. A couple of
numbers in this line of work re
ceived the hearty approval of all.
There is no overdoing, nothing
is so exagerated as to make it ap
pear as unreal. You appreciate
it as it is see it, feel it, live it,
and enjoy it.
Mr. Pinkley was brought to
this city by the Presbyterian and
M. E. churches and they certain
ly made a happy hit. Mr. Pink
ley ; is pleased with the people,
the place and his reception, and
we are informed that steps are be
ing taken to assure his appear
