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 fcj platform. 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 year. 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 faculty. 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 present enrolled. - a Th8 Vary Smartest cf ths NEW SPRING JACKETS It is really a delight to look at thenu The season's most fetching styles are shown here in a pleaing variety, which increases in interest and at tractiveness every day, hy reason of . the constant additions which are arriving from the fashion center.

He was the first teacher of Philomath College, teaching the4e one year under its first or ganization and resigned the posi tion for one in this city in the Fall of 1868. In 1869 he and Mr. Emery Allen formed the business partnership of Allen & Woodward. We cannot forbear aeain mentioning Mr. Wood ward's connection with the public schools of this county, and espec ially hfs untiring work and in terest in the public schools of this city, as a director, for the last ten years giving his time freely for the good of the rising generation, and to his efforts much of the success of our city schools i" due. The irreproach able private character of Mr. Woodward is a fact ot which the voters will by no means lose sight of at the coming election and it makes us enthusiastic to have the the privilege of supporting so worthy a candidate for this im portant office. Mr. Woodward has an enviable record in all the public offices he has ever held, all of which came to him as the unanimous choice of the nominating conventions. After serving one term as county judge, he was renominated for the position in 1902 but declined. Mr. Woodward is now before the people ot Benton county for the nomination for county judge at the coming primary election. His platform has appeared in this paper before.
