We desire to call attention to the
ad. of Prof. G. Taillandier, which

convention here last week were
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Edwards, Mr.
and Mrs. Clyde Starr and Mr. and
Mrs. Lew Edwards, all of Belle

pleasing affair. The Salem orches

very satisfactory. Prof Harry
Bea'rd, director of the OAC band,
played with the Salem musicians
on this occasion.
The New Orleans Colored Con
cert Co. appeared in the local opera
house Friday evening to a good
eized audience. Tne entertain
ment is about on par with former
engagements played in this city
by the same people. The general
verdict of those attending the show
was favorable, but no great enthu
siasm was evinced.

Hall of Corvallis took third place
and won the $40-cash priza, sending
into th Journal olliica $225.50 in

first priza winners this year

her in winning the prize, her hearty
thanks for their support.
Next Friday night at the Armory,
is to occur the last game of basket
ball of the season OAC vs Dallas.
Not only will it be the last game of
the season, but it will decide the
state inter-collegiate champion
ship. It will be remembered that
on Feb. 9, in the gams at Dallas,
OAC defeated Dallas by 2 points,
but it must also be remembered
that the latter team was at the
disadvantage of having one of her
best players out of action. A spec
ial excursion is to be run from
Dallas, Monmouth and Indepen
dence, and the indications are that
au immense crowd will be in at
tendance. That a great game is to
be played there is no doubt, for
OAC has always looked upon Dal
las as the hardest nut she has to
crack when it comes to basket balL
The game i oiog to be worth the
25 ceu'.a adm s.iou, that is certain.

Don't go to Albany on a wild

most excellent play right in Cor
vallis. Go to the Opera House
tonight see the Empire Theatre
Co. in "Moths," a guaranteed attrac
tion. A company of United Artisans
are to pay a fraternal visit t? the
Wells lodge next Saturdav night.
The event is looked forward to with
happy anticipation by the local
people and there is no doubt but
that a large crowd will plan to go.
The R. F. D. carriers of the
counties of Linn and Benton have a
sort of organization of their own.

Prof. Stoudenmeyer, in former
years well known in this city as
"Tex," was up from Salem Thurs
day evening in the capacity of
cometist with the Salem orchestra
when that organization played for
the college dance. "Tex" now ranks
well among the leading cornetists
of the coast.
The Empire Theatre Company
will be remembered as appearing
here last November, when they
made a most favorable impression.
The plays they piesent are clean
and wholesome. the company
numbers 18 people, and they rend
er delightful and refreshing enter
tainment at very low prices.
Mrs Martha Burnett returned
Saturday from Monroe, where she
had been at the bedside of her
brother, Wesley Hinton, who is
very ill, with slight hopes of re
covery. Mr. Hinton is an Oregon
pioneer of '47, and has for many
years resided in Benton, where he
has many friends who sincerely
hope for his recovery.
In an exchange from & neighbor
ing county we notice that an aspir
ant for public office has filed a
petition, as by law required, and
failed utterly to state in said
petition for which office he bad a
preference. When a fellow gets so
"worked up"' over his candidacy
that he forgets what he wants one
cannot avoid being amused.
A little better than hve to one
in favor of OAC was the score of the
basket ball game at the Armory
Friday evening when the team of
U. of O. was down trom iiiUgene.
Oil account of so many other things
go on the attendance was not fo

Big Elk valley; the alders are in
bloom and the gras3 is growing
nicely. Mr. Overlander has been
experimenting with his fern bench

growth during the winter while
the pesky ferns are dormant and in

shoots. It has been proved that a
good yield of fall wheat can be
raised on his fern land. Why not

This evening, (Tuesday 27,) the
regular annual District Convention
of the Knights of Pythias occurs at
Salem, Ore., under the auspices of
Central Lodge, No. 18, of that city.
It will be remembered that the con
vention of last year was held in
Corvallis, and at that time the
members of Valley Lodge, No. 11,

standard set by Corvallis, if their
money holds out, and they are
pretty well supplied with funds.

materials entering into its makeup are
the very best. This Schumann piano
