R. J. MOSES )
For murder in the first degree
J. R. Moses, of the firm of Moses
Bros., will hang April 5, 1906 -for
murdering prices on every
thing inthe store for "cash only,"
is the verdict.
Will hang up large list cards
in the store stating what will be
included in the murdering price
sale. There will be good bar
gains in every line handled by
us. It will pay every ene in and
out of Corvallis to save on what
they buy at our three days' sale.
Don't forget the date April 5,
6 and 7. Regular customers can
have all orders filled and deliver
ed as usual.
No appeal from this verdict
by a higher court. .
In the Corvallis Gazette of
May 7, 1880, we find the follow
ing reference made to E. Wood
ward, the present candidate on
the republican nominating ticket
tor county judge. At a meeting
held by the republican party on
the previous Saturday E. Wood
ward was nominated for state
senator for Benton county, re
ceiving the uuanimous vote of
the convention and was elected
to this office in June following by
a good majority. -In this issue of
the Gazette the following editor
ial comments were made:
"A more fortunate choice for
the party or connty could not
have been made. Mr. Wood
ward is too well known in Ben
ton county to need any extended
notice from our pen. He, came
to this county iu 1865 and has
ever since been a resident. In
1866 he was elected superinten
dent ot common schools in this
The Pltsburg Leader.
No adequate idea of the elo
quence with which Mr. Warde ut
tered his beautiful word-pictures
can be transferred to paper. Those
who heard and saw him will carry
to their graves vivid impressions of
his magnetic manner, his magnifi
cent yoice and his impersonations
that seemed to make noted cre
ations of the Bard of Avon live and
breathe, walk and talk, on the
animal trap, while I go to Red
lands, California, to spend the
summer with friends. But we
like the winters of Arizona so
well that I think next winter
will fiad us here again.
The weather has been, as it
seems, "made to ord?r." Last
week, when the rest of the coun
try was having such terrible
storms, we had only about three
hours rain on the 12. Al
together, we haven't -had more
than three days rain since Nov
ember. The roads have been so that
the mail carrier has ridden his
wheel every day in delivering the
the mail, with the exception of
two since November.
Largest Enrollment Ever.
The opening ot the summer
term of school out at the college
points to the lact that the large
enrollment re orded in the two
previous terms thi year will still
be in evidence.
For a number of years OAC
has been among the largest col
leges, in point of numbers, west
of the Rocky Mountains and has
supported the largest number of
students throughout the year
when compared with any of Ore
gon's institutions. This excel
lent record has been augmented
by an increased attendance this
On the afternoon ot Tuesday,
before many of the students had
taken cards, there were 508 stu
dents reported as having register
ed by Clerk Crawford. On last
year the same day there was an
enrollment of 445, thus, showing
an increase over the previous
year of 63 students.
This steady increase in num
bers, combined with the high
class work accomplished at the
institution, speaks well for its
From present indications the
enrollment will be greatly in
creased next year. The opening
of the term of school next tall
will probably record a nrich
larger student body than is at
