The Benton County Citizens
League held its regular meeting
Tuesday evening, Oct. 3, at the
City Hall. Not a very large
number of the members were
present, although all had been
duly notified by card of the im
portance ot the meeting. Il is
very discouraging to the officers
of the League, upon whose shoul
ders fall all the work, that so
little interest is manifested by
the citizens of Corvallis. The
League is doing good work, and
there is much still for them to do,
but nothing can be done without
the united effort of every business
man in town. Several questions
of great importance were brought
ud at the meetine, but it was
the citv and noting the numbei
of improvements that can and
should be made which will add
greatly to the beautifying of o'ir
city, we offer the following sug

What promises to be a game
of football replete with interest
is to take place on the college
field tomorrow afternoon. The
contesting eleven will the OAC

certain that there will be an ex
hibition on both sides ot good
Chemawa braves are no mean
foes for any team. Last year
they made a California tour and
made a good showing, both
against Stanford and Berkeley.
After their return heme they
played a game with Multnomah
when the latter team was at its
best, and held the Portlanders
down to a very small score. "
It is reported that this year they
are stronger than ever, and it is
claimed that they will stand a
good show of doing business with
the best team of the state. They
have, for instance, Rube Saun
ders, one of the fiercest line plun
gers that ever played fullback in
the Northwesl. He is a giant in
size and an athlete of good
strength and speed. What he
will be able to do with the heavy
OAC line is one of the things to
be guessed about.
Besides Saunders, it is report
ed that the Chemawa band will
also include two well known
Carlisle players. ' The team from
the Carlisle school annually goes
against Harvard and other large
universities and always with
more or less success, once they
came to tne coast ana ran up a
score of 30 odd against Berkley,
rolling the Californians ' back for
touchdown after touchdown. If
the Carlisle players are in the
Chemawa bnnch there will be
the livelest of times out on the
hill tomorrow afternoon. In
any event, tne game win oe a
hot one Steckle's men will
make it all that.
A great change has come over
football conditions out at OAC in
the past few days. If the team
now developing out there doesn't
win renown in the weeks to come
guesses are vain and myth.
Never before has there been so
fine a bunch of players and as
many active, husky men to pick
from. More than fifty players
are on the field every afternoon
now and three teams are regu
larly at work.
ed ot four voices that have been
before the American public for
years, and whose blending is as
nearly perfect as careful training
can make it. The bell-ringing
feature consists of a peal of more
than one hundred hand-bells, the
finest in America, made by spe
cial order for this company by
the John -Taylor Company,
Loughborough, England, and
carrying a range of five octaves
(chromatic) with four octaves of
duplicates, varying in weight
from three ounces to fifteen
pounds, and being perfectly at

One of the prettiest 'weddings seen in

The double parlors were beautifully
decorated in ferns and roses, the dining
room in asters. A most delicious wed

newly wedded pair took the train for
Portland, and will be at home to their
friends in Salem after November 1st. The
