Corvallis, Oregon, does a general, con-
. servative banking business. It guarded
safely its customers' banking business

ation. It affords banking privileges at
home and abroad, first-class, not ex-
- celled by any institution in the United
States. The members of the Board of
Directors were born and raised in Ben
ton County, except one, and that mem
ber hae resided in the county forty-six
years. The business history of each
is as an open book before the people of
the county. Loans to customers solicit

ANIMALS SURE TO "CO BAD"
After This Stage Beasts Are of No
Use to Circus Men Never Be
turn to Old Ways.
No man living knows all about
animals, or more than a very little
about them, declares McClure's
Magazine. Some who are dead
thought they knew. That is the
reason they are dead. Only ttiosn
who realize their ignorance and
inpplement it with untiring watch
fulness last long in this queer
business that I'm in. ":
Sooner or later, mo: animal of
the cat kind become utterly in
tractable and remain so. "Going
bad" is the professional term for
this. Rarely do they return' to
their old, amenable ways. Hence
'orth they are of no use as perf orm
?rs, and are relegated to the exhi
bition cages, for any man entering
the cage of a lion or tiger that has
gone bad is instantly attacked.
This is one of the terrors of the
trade. Symptoms of the change
of heart are apparent enough
sometimes, particularly . in ani
mals who are growing old. Occa
sionally, however, some vouncr
beast, formerly as obedient as you
could wish, will turn murderous
without cause or warning. If her,
trainer gets out alive he is lucky.
If he ever enters her cage again
he's a fool. -

FISH AND BIRDS IMITATE.
Insects, Crabs and Other Animal Pos
sess Bemarkable Faculty for
Many insects, birds, animals
and even fish and crabs are won
derfully clever imitators. They
will take upon themselves the
color, shape or position of their
surroundings so perfectly that
neither friend nor enemy can dis
cover their whereabouts.
There is a fish to be seen in the
kelp beds about the island of San
ta Catalina which has a clever way
of making itself invisible. The
body is slender, with a pointed
head and prominent eyes. Aloni;
the back is a continuous frill,
which is the dorsal fin, while, op
posite, the anal fin is equally or
namented. The fish vary in color.
Some are amber, others urange or
vivid green, while some have two
hues combined, dark and light
green or olive and yellow. These
peculiarities of form and color
render the fish marvelously like
the kelp leaves among which it
A number of these fish were
placed in the tanks of the Zoolog
ical Gardens, where they might be
observed. They showed great un
easiness, some of them 'even leap
ing from the tank. Another tank
was prepared where the natural
surroundings of the fish were imi
tated as nearly as possible. A
branch of microcystis, with leaves
hanging in the water, was sus
pended over . the tank. The most
uneasy of the fish were placed in
the new home, and their change
of feeling was soon evident. One
swam at once to the kelp leaves
and poised itself head downward.
Another, with head poised up
ward, became a remarkable imita
tion of the hanging lea ves in shape
and color. The fish made no fur
ther effort to escape.
Another inhabitant of the kelp
beds is an olive green crab, which
clings to the under side of the kelp
tangles. This crab also showed
great uneasiness when it was
placed in a tank. When the kelp
was introduced it crawled upon it
and was at oncealmest invisible,
so much did it resemble the kelp
leaves. Another crab makes itself
look exactly like a rough stone.

Choate on Texas Justice.
One of Ambassador Choate's
legal stories told at a gathering of
