Citizen Writes of Conditions Cunty Farm. at The Gazette is in receipt ot a letter from one who claims to be familiar with conditions at the county poor farm. In a spirit of fairness, the letter is given in full: Ed Gazette: In the Corvallis Times ot Aug. 7, 1906, I saw a report ot the Grand Jury regard ing the sanitary conditions and care of inmates of the county farm. I wish to say that I have a brother, Robert Mitchell, who has been an inmate ot the farm for over 13 years. I called on him the other day and found him as usual, well pleased with his home at the farm. He says that he has baths and clean clothes at regular times, and clean, well-cooked, wholesome food, all that he wants. He is entirely dependent on those in charge as he is so crippled that he cannot dress or undress himself, and until re cently was the most helpless one at the larm. He uses lots of tobacco and says he has never been Tefused all he wanted. During the 13 years that my brother has made his home there, I have made ire quent visits to the farm; in fact I have worked for six months at a time for Mr. Huggins and can say that I never saw the inmates other than clean and well fed. On my recent visit I talked with all the inmates and al though some of them are 85 and 95 years of &ge I heard no word of complaint. ,. jTJiei.VpUeptjjicookwas not in evidence, Mrs. Huggins, as usual, doing the cooking. Respectfully yours, J. W. Mitchell. Funeral of Lucy Job. The remains ot the late Lucy Job were brought to Corvallis Tuesday morning and were taken at once to Crystal Lake cemetery where brief services were held, Rev. E. F. Green officiating. The pall-bearers were six young girl, dressed in white. They were: Agnes Wilson, Ruth Lilly, Thia Johnson, Grace Wil son, Laura Waggoner and Ethel Watters. The remains were ac companied to Corvallis from Forest Grove by the parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Job, Miss Emma Job, the sister, Jerry Job, a cou sin, and Mrs. Z. Job, an aunt. Deceased was aged 17 years and 11 months, and was a beau tiful and accomplished girl. A large number of friends met the funeral party at the depot and accompanied the remains to the cemetery, where a profusion ot lovely blossoms were placed on the newly made mound by loving friends. Pure Water for Eugene. Therejs no likelihood of Eu gene suffering from another epi demic of typhoid fever if a pure water supply can prevent it. The trouble that was exper ienced there last spring was due to bad water, but the company has abandoned the old wells and installed filters, taking water from an entirely new source, aud a test has been made of the new supply by the state board of health, with very gratifying re sults. The report in full of Ralph Matson, bacteriologist of the state board, says: 'The examination of the spec imen of water sent from Eugene by Dr. Harris shows no contami nation. There was an absolute failure to produce gas or even fermentation tubes. Plates in oculated with varying quantities ot the water failed to develop a single colony on any one. The result is most remarkable and I fear an , error somewhere before the water arrived here. It would be well to know just how this water was collected. Even the purest water usually shows some growth. V The samples referred 'to were taken airectly from the mains by Dr. J. W. Harris, county health officer, and sent to Portland the same day, water being received in the same condition in which it was taken Irom the pipes. THE HUNTER. Some Aids to Memory That May Save Trouble. For the benefit of the hunter with an appetite for venison out of season and who pleads as an ex cuse lor killing pheasants beyond the lawful limit that he has a "sick friend" who longs for broiled China, some reminders of the law may not come amiss. There are others, too, who really cannot keep in mind the dates' when hunting is and is not law ful, and in order to aid these, the following hints on the Oregon game law may prove oi assist ance in fixing the dates in mind One may, for example, kill oucks, geese and swan from Sep tember 1st to February 1st. The hunter may shoot grouse and all kinds of pheasants from October 1st to December 1st. Trout may be angled for from the 1st of April until the 1st of November. Buck deer may be hunted from August 15th to November 1st; does, from September 1st to No vember 1st. The hunter must not kill elk until 1907, should he have the opportunity, which is not likely. Silver gray squirrels are for bidden fruit excepting from Oc tober ist to JanuarjTist. Beaver, prohibited until 1925. There is no law to protect black bass and snipe. It is unlawful to do any of the following things: To sell any gamp. To kill more than ten upland birds in one day. To kill more than 50 ducks, geese or swan per week. To catch trout less than 5 inches in length. To catch trout other than with hook and line. To catch trout by night fish ing. , To hunt deer at night. To hunt deer with dogs. To kill more than 5 deer in one season. To hunt game animals cr birds without license, except upon your own ground. License procured from count v clerk upon payment of $1, good in any part of the state. Many Changes. Things have been "going some" in the way ot change? at the Moses Biothers' drvgoods es tablishment in this city, the past tew days. The north room is being vacated and t'ae groceries will be kept in the other room. This will simplify the business and make it easier to handle. The room vacated has been leased and will be occupied by the Bell telephone people. R. J. Moses and son, Leonard, went to Philomath, Wednesday, to invoice the stock there, a task that wiU take severai days. Upon completion of the work and the return of Jesse Mose?, Mr. and Mrs. Victor Moses will leave for Arizona for a two-months' visit with relatives. Daring their ab sence the Corvallis store will be operated by some member of the Jesse Moses family, and upon their return Victor Moses will be the head of the Corvallis estab lishment.

Only now can the extent of the earthquake damage be appreciated. The majority of modern houses in this ciy are unfi t for- habitation.

The first shock lasted 4 minutes and 50 seconds, longer I than any quake in the memory of any Santiago citizen. The shocks caused the bells to ring and pictures to swing from the walls. Experts say that the only thing that saved the city from to tal destruction was the fact that the motion was circular. The principal shock extended from Valparaiso to Santiago and Menpilla, with a center at Li- mache. The towns of Quillotta, 10,000 population, and Llaillai, were destroyed i The quake was foretold. The Naval observatory- predicted' it two days previous and Valparaiso papers printed the prediction the day before it occurred .

( IN HIS MEMORY. Something of the Character of Jasper Hay den A Tribute. Jasper Havden, who died sud denly in Alsea valley recently, was so widely and favorably known that the following facts, banded in by a friend, are given space even at so late a date. The writer says: "Jasper Hayden was born in Alsea valley, Benton county, Oregon, Dec. 10, 1857. Lived all bis life and died on his father's old homestead place. His father came to Oregon in '53 and located in the Alsea valley where he lived until his death in .. "Jasper Hayden was " united in marriage to Alice Webster, Nov. 7, 18E7. Their home was blessed with four children. Pearl, Rutus, Myrtle and Johnie. "The death of his wife, April 15, i8qq, was a heavy blow to him, leaving the four small chil dren for him to watch over and care for. This he did without a murmur. Though stricken with grief he submitted to the ordeal and with a fortitude possessed only by the brave surmounted every difficulty. He was a con stant worker and a good man ager. Hisjudgment and advice were often sought by his neigh bors and friends. "By his industry and thrift he has helped to make one of the best farms and finest homes in the valley. No doubt the very pro ad est and happiest moment ot his life had come and the future seemed full of promises to him. But alas! just as he was prepared to live he died. Sometimes we want to complain and say, why was it thus? And why could it i not have been different? But we forget to say, Lord, not my will but thine be done. ! ". "Jasper professed religion 1 some time ago and was truly a 1 high type of the one who set the example. For his hand wa-? ever ready to. lift the fallen, help the poor, and to do good every where and in every way he could. The Sunday school, the church, and the whole communitw will miss him. Yes, we all miss him for we feel that we have suffered an irreparable loss in the death of one so sood and useful. "On the 6th of September '05,1 less than a year ago, he was unit ed in marriage to Mrs. Agnes Cathcart, who survives him and mourns his sad death. Though sad and lonely, yet it is a consola tion to her to know that he was ready to go and that she has a hope of meeting him again in the sweet by and by. "But perhaps no one left to mourn his sudden death deserves more sympathy than his poor old mother, who is now over eighty years old. She says that in the morning of the day he died she beard him whistling and sing ing so sweetly and gay that .-he thought he must be feeling 11 and remarked that she did r.! know when she had seen him mi happy before. But oh, what so sudden as death! "Precicis in the sight of lb Lord is the death of his saints" were the words chosen for tl I foundation of the remarks mad by Rev. Woods at the funerwi services, which were held at tb familw home, alter which he wa caken to his last resting place in the Alsea cemetery, followed by a large concourse of weeping re latives and friends; Weep not for him the bitter tear.
