animals as ever left Benton

county save one. As a lot they
were hard to beat.

good idea of the attendance.

James G. Horning, Corvallis,
sends us a change for his ad in this
issue, but ir, came to late. He says
the demand for stock this year has
been something wonderful. He
says he belieyes he could sell at
least one hundred cockerels more if
he had them. This, by the way
is a common complaint ot the ma
jority of advertisers m the North
west Poultry journal the past year.
More demand tnan tney can sup
ply. This is not a boom year,
either, but the peopie are more and
more awakening to the value of
pure-bred fowls. Northwest Poul
The explosion of dynamite men
tioned in our last issue caused
Harry Walker, an expert powder
man, the loss of hearing in his left
ear. ills sight was also badly af
fected and particles of dirt blown
into his face, his clothing was rent
and he was badly used up in var
ious ways. At the present time he
is getting along as well as could be
expected. The wonder is that he
was not blown to atoms as he was
not more than 3J feet from the
powder when it exploded. This
was the first accident that ever be-
ell Mr. Walker in the many years
that he has handled powder. The
accident was the result of thawing
powder for blowing out stumps in
the Taylor hopyard.
This evening, the basket ball
men or the totate University will
ome to Corvallis to undertake the
lefeat of the OAC men. So far
this season, the university men
have won out in football over the
collegians and it will be their ef
forts to secure victories both at
basket ball aud at track. The
OAC men have been making pre
parations for a long time for the
gime against their old riv.ils at
basket ball, and they will eeak to
night, as far as possible, to take re
venge for last fall's defeat at foot
ball. A record breaking crowd
will probably witness the game.
Tli9 game will begin promptly at.
eight thirty. The ca.aie will be
preceded by a band concert.
The following decision dis
patched from Salem, Friday,
plainly shows that candidates tor
office cannot switch :
in response to a querry from Sec
retary of State Dunbar, rendered
an opinion that a candidate for
office under ! the ; direct primary
law cannot withdraw or amend
his declaration ot principles after
having filed them with the Secre
tary of State.
ine Attorney-uenerai says
that there is no provision in the
law for the recording of amend
ments or the withdrawal of one
petition that another may be
filed; that to permit a candidate
to file a new declaration would
cause endless confusion and ren
der the record kept by the secre
tary useless and valueless.
According to this ruling, the
candidate who finds his declar
ation of principles not in har
mony with popular sentiment will
find it impossible to change his

The roaf over the blacksmith
shop of Hathaway Bros, is of cor
rugated iron and has been in use
several winters with the result that
it is badly rusted. The accidental
xplosiou of 50 pounds of giant
powder a mile or so from town last
Monday caused a concussion that
j arred all the rust loose and opened
up the roof to such au extent that
the recent rains were a menace to
the fire in the forge and continually
drenched the smiths. Inconse
quence thereof the matter was taken
up with the Odd Fellows, who own
the building, and it has been decid
ed to place a new roof over the
NiiMtng. Chas. Heckart will do
the work and will begin at once.

as the place for convening. E. W.

sponse to the call and became a
charter member of the association .
At this meeting there was an elec

"Btanding room only" bouse at the
Jd. E. church last night and proved
to be more : than was claimed of
them. v We have had "Jubilee
Singers" galore and while a few ot
the old favorite Jubilee songs were
given the program was made up
principally of some very fine solo,
quartet, trio and duet work. A.
m. uamon was compelled to re-i
spond to three encores, on his
violin solo "DeBeriot's 7me Con

the company shared pretty much
the same fate. Citizen Clearfield,
There was a wreck on the South
ern Pacific some time during Wed
nesday night or early Thursday
luoruing at Delta, California. The
wreck Wa8 caused by a slide. Ou
ihe occurrence of the first slide it
was tnought that a tramp who
was stealing a ride had been killed
and while searching for his remains
a second slide occurred killing three
people and the train being a double
header and drawn by two engines,
both engines were ground to pow
der. An engineer and fireman were
among the killed. It is thought
possible that six or eight people
were killed. Trains were consider
ably delayed by the accident.
It is stated that according to
late advices the war department has
authorized the establishment of a
brigade camp in every state in the
union, it is known that California
and Washington each have govern
ment quarters for the soldiers, but I
Oregon alone of the coast states has
ro such barricks. Members of the
Citizens' League will remember
that about a year ago Lieut. Quin
Ian called the attentiun of that body
to the matter and urged that Cor
vallis make a strong pull for the
location of such brigade camp

thousands who have been distressed like you. And besides
there is a bond of sympathy between its prices and your purse.

I have for sale here in Corvallis a beau
tiful Schumann piano. As is well known
it is a most superior instrument in every
respect, being one of the old reliable
makes. It has been familiar to the musi
cal world for over fifty years. There is
the fine, delicate artistic timbre to the
Schumann tone that places it in the class
of the very finest makes. It is well con
structed in every particular, and all the
materials entering into its makeup are
the very best. This Schumann piano
which I am going to sell, is one remain
ing of a car load sold by a representative
of Eiler's Piano House, at a town near
here. I have been authorized to close it
out at a price way below what it ordi
narily sells for. It is the best value I
have ever been able to sell in Corvallis.
It is handsomely cased in mahogany.
It may be secured by paying thirty-five
dollars and small monthly payments.
The Eiler's Piano House full guarantee
goes with it.

most unbearable: I had tried for years
to find relief, having tried all remedies I
