and worked hard and planned
well, and in time was permitted
to see her children receiving the

Not only this, but she moulded
them into characters able to
withstand the storms and tempta

all grow to usetul, noble man

A meeting of Corvallis busi
ness men held at the city hall
Tuesday evening had asits 'ob-
ect the discussion of the organi
zation of a commercial and social
club for Corvallis, such as are
found in every other town of any
ize in the Valiey.
', That such a club would be of
great benefit and pleasure to
ocal business men is certain,
since they are not prepared to
entertain their friends nor keep
"open house" on occasions of
social importance, as . do ; their
Iwlthren in neighboring towns,
and a good, live club, with suit
able rooms and modern equip
ments and furnishings would
enable them to extend certain
courtesies and hospitality other
wise impossible, to say nothing
of the pleasure to be derived at
home from the lendezvous.
The possibility of such a place
where a member might seek
safety in times of domestic tur
moil, and escape from the annual
bousecleaning, shou'd recom
mend it to every thoughtful busi
ness man of the city, and doubt-
