A couple that attracted consider
able attention at the C. & E. de
pot when they boarded the train
for Newport, Thursday, was Mr.
and Mrs. John Rickard, probably
the oldest couple that nas left Cor
vallis for an outing, . this. year.
They are the parents of Peter Rick
ard, and must be close to 80 years
old. As they awaited the train
with almost childish eagerness,
those looking on silently hoped that
the outing at Newport might be a
happy one for the venerable pair.
There is a feeling through the
state of Oregon that the Agricul
tural College should be developed
more along the line of the original
intention. The colleges of letters
and arts are very well, but the
experiment larm and agricultural
subjects should receive the great
er attention. Dr. Withycombe
and his staff have been doing the
best in their power, with means
at hand but have been handicapp
ed because the agricultural end
of the institution has been made
the side issue instead of the main.
To this view the O " C needs
improvements on the tar b, a new
dairy barn, improved apparatus
and better specimens of improved
cattle quite as much as new dor
mitories or assembly halls or the
like. With the needs of the
dairy industry, the work of the
Agricultural College is of prac
tical worth. There is every
reason why the agricultural dis
tricts should be closer to the col-
lese. Acquaintance has come
through the work of the insti
Dr. Withycoinbe's valuable
work in the wav of forage plants
hs done much for agricultural
Oregon. Through correspondence
information of value along any
line of farm business is available.
That the main idea of the Agri
cultural College may not be sub
ordinated to somethingelse should
be the aim of its management.
Milton Morgan launched a fine canoe
on the Willauette a few days ago and
now enjoys a paddle when so disposed.
The canoa was made by J. F. Tyler, of
this city, and it is a credit to that gentle
man's skill as a boat builder. Mr. Ty
ler ia considering the matter of building
a boat house at this place and keeping
boats for rent, also building them to
order. The canoe which he has just
built for Mr. Morgan is constructed on
what ia known as the Brooks' model and
is similar to the celebrated Peterborough
canoe. "Within a Bhort tune,"Mr."" Mor
gan and his brother, Otto, expect to
make a ten days' row down the Willam
ette and Columbia river as far as the
mouth ot-the; latter river.

Getting; Mail Over at Newport.
Some Things That Happen.
Getting the mail at Newport
sounds easy, but it isn't. Neither
is it easy to locate one's friends,
nor wear any sort of headgear
when the wind blo ws,' nor yet to
catch one's hat as it is tosed
about on the billows of the deep,
just out of reach.
Some of these things are de
scribed by a partv in from the
coast yesterday. When the boat
comes in the people line up for a
block and await their turn at
the postoffice window. One per
son can only ask for mail for
four at one time, and everyone
goes the limit before he moves
on. It takes from two to two
and a half hours to get one's
mail after it is distributed, un
less one heads the line.
Last Saturday night 155 pas
sengers came in on the boat, an4
long after nightfall men and
boys were walking the streets in
search of rooms, as every place
is full. On Sunday 285 passen
gers went in and a large num
ber came out that evening.
D. P. Johnson returned Sunday f-om
a several weeks' stay at Newport. .
Hugh Penland, of the class of 1900,
OAC, came out from the coast Sunday
night and went on to Albany, where he
took the midnight train for. San Fran
cisco. He is to accept a position with a
physician in that city at $200 per month
until January let, after which he takes a
half interest in the business. Mr. Pen
land has completed a course in a medical
college in the east since leaving OAC.
His wife and child remain at Newport
for six weeks, after arhicn they join him
"I was a loser in a twenty-year battle
