Of Great Importance.
Corvallis is to receive unusual honor
next month in the fact that she will en
tertain the State Good Koads Associa
tion in annual session. The meetings
are scheduled to occur Nov. 15, 16, and
17, and the probabilities are that the
court house will be the place chosen for
holding them. This is the first time in
the history of the association that the
annuals meetings have not been held in
Salem or Portland and that Corvallis re
ceives the distinction on thiB occasion is
perhaps largely due to the elfort of Judge
Watters, who is a member of the execu
tive board of the association.
It is a foregone conclusion that' many
of the professors of OAC will be active in
assisting to make these meetings suc
cessiul. The state university "at Eugene
always has several representatives at
these annual meetings. There are al
ways representatives from nearly every
county in the state. Governor Chamber
lain is pretty certain to attend, as he is
reported to be an enthusiastic advocate of
It is to be hoped that every road sup
ervisor in the county will make it his
especial business to be oh hand on this
occasion, as many excellent papers are
to be read. There will also be a number
of practical road builders in attendance
to give their experience in the matter of
practical construction of substantial
highways. In dne season we hope to
give our readers the program in full.

W. J. Warfield arrived in Cor
vallis, Saturday, from a visit at
the Exposition, .. While down there
Mr. Warfield purchased a couple of
very nne goats that were prize-J
winners at the lair. The anioauls
were exhibited from California and
are of a very fine strain of Angoras.
Mr. Warfield is constantly chang
ing stock in order to keep new
blood and build up his herd of
goats and this particular purchase
is but one of many deals - he has
made to improvn his flock. He
went on over to his Alsea home
with his goats, Tuesday.
The college has purchased
through Dr. James. Witbycombe,
tho first prize Shropshire ram at
the Lewis and Clark Exposition.
It goes without saying that this
ram is most likely finer than the
"lamb that Mary had." OAC at
present is keeping in Btock two
breeds of sheep, two breeds of cattle
and two breeds of swine especially1
for experimental purposes at the
station in the way of feeding and
class work. ' Dr. Witbycombe is
creating much interest in the mat
ter of animal husbandry, not onlv
at OAC but throughout the state.
Such work, will be of untold benefit
at some future time not far distant.
In fact, it is an important matter
right now and at present benefits
are apparent on every hand.

Not an Experiment.
When a play has been given in Port
land before coining to Corvallis, the pub
lic can alwavs assure themselves of the
kind and quality of the attraction by
reading the Portland papers. And the
fact that a play runs for a week at a Port
land theatre is of itself a guarantee that
it is worthy of patronage. "On the Bridge
at Midnight" came to the Empire theatre
last Sunday and has been running there
ever since. It has received excellent press
notices in both the Oregonian and the
Journal, particularly in last Monday's
This play was booked last summer from
Chicago and this is the second season
that the company has visited the.Pacific
coast with the same play. In preparing
the play it was insisted that it should
avoid tne ordinary sensational claptrap
and have a fresh, deep, wholesome, story
with plenty of humor in it ; and that it
should be unrivalled in its scenic details.
The minglinir of humor and pathos in
this play is as remarkable as the chief
scene and the story so fashioned that for
the deeply interested audience the great
bridge, lifting its valves to let a steamer
pass, is only an incident after all. There
is a laudable eCect shown ii this play to
avoid the cheap effects of reckless, sensa
tional melodrama and to stick to the gen
uine strength of wholesome drama. There
are many characters besides the professor
and the bootblack. ,
"On the Bridge at Midnight" will be
presented in Corvallis on the 11th' inst.
with ail the scenic effects and the same
company of eleven players, that are pre
senting the play in Portland this week.
