OREGON STATE FAIR.
Live Stock Exibits to be Record
To have a state fair wishout a
live stock department would be
like a circus without horses and
bareback riders or clowns. The
Oregon State Fair, to be held at
Salem on September 14-19, next,
will be a record breaker in the
matter of livestock exhibits if
one may judge from the letters
of inquiry for space with the
secretary, Frank A, Welch, is re
ceiving daily at present. The
usual large herds of former ex
hibits will be on the ground and
there will be new breeders num
bered among those seeking hon
or and the ribbons. Harry West,
the Jersey breeder at Scappoose,
Columbia county, is going to be
out in full force with his string
of heavy cream producers, of
which ten have lately been pur
chased by him in Indiana, the
cost price being $4090. They
are of rich blood, and Mr. West
will give all other Jerseymen a
lively rub for the premiums.
W. C. Morrow and A, F. Domes,
of the Willamette Valley, will be
numbered among the Jersey
br.eders who will be showing
their cattle for the first time at
the state fair ; and there are oth
ers, too. D. H. Looney, of Jeff
erson, is among the entries with
his splendid Jerseys and Guern
seys, The Atkinsons, of New
berg, have made a requition for
space for their Jerseys, which
were not at the fair of 1907 ow-H
ing to other matters which pre
vented them making a display.
The Holstein breeders will be
right up in front, also, for P. A.
Frakes, of Columbia county, and
John L. Smith, oLnearSpokane
Washington, are coming with
their black and white animals
who fill the milk pails to over
flowing, and there will be other
Holsteins which cannot be men
tioned now owing to lack space.
In the short horn class will be
found the great big animals of
Frank Brown, which were for
merly owned tby Charles Ladd.
Mr. Brown's reputation as a
breeder of Shorthorns is known
far and wide and he will have
something rich for the judges to

Country Love Feast.
Far good, solid fun the old
fashioned country wool-pulling
and rag-sewing time indulged in '
by our mothers was hard to beat.
A royal feast of this kind was
indulged in at Mrs. John Whit
aker's, 10 miles south of Corvai
lis, last Thursday. About 50
of the neighbors, including wo
men and children, gathered in
and made the wool and rags fly
until the dinner hour. AVhile
this was going on the tables were
being spread under the grape
arbor by Mrs. Whitaker, assisted
by the daughters, and to say
there was something good to eat
set before them would be putting
it mildly for they know just how
it's done. The spread was thor
oughly enjoyed by all after which
came the social . features which
our good country friend approp
riate so much.
Robert Johnson informs us
that the prune crop will be short
this year. At the big orchard
there will not be more than 1000
bushels when there should be
2500 for a full crop.

NEW ROAD PLANNED.
Trolley Line From Albany To
The Albany Herald says an
electric line from Albany to
Brownsville a distance of twenty
two miles, is being projected by
E. H. Rhodes, a local capitalist.
He also plans to build a street
railway system in the city,- and
if franchises are secured, he will
begin work immediately. Local
capital is behind both enterpris
es and other local men, whose
names have not yet been made
public, are associated in the
project with Rnodes.
"We have the money assured"
said Rhodes Jtoday. -'Tbat part
of the proposition is settled.
The rood will be built if we can
secure the necessary franchises
Rhodes will " apply to the Al
bany City Council at its next
meeting Tuesday evening for a
franchise to cover some local
streets with a city railway sys
tem. There are already two
street' railway franchises cover
ing local streets, but it is be- J
heved Rhodes and his associates
may be successful in gaining
permission to use some streets in
view of the fact that H. Hirsh
berg, who owns one franchise,
orerites a horsecar onlyf and
that A. Welch, who secured a
tra,.oiiise covei ingbeveral streets
has done nothing butstring piles
of tiles and u lew rails along a
portion, of the proposed line.

by Rhodes in projecting a rail

It will be dffficult to secure a

In the event the Albany
Brownsville road is built, it is
said that Rhodes will secure the
rights-of-way heretofore granted
J. S. Talbot for a railroad up the
Calapooia River from Browns
ville to Crawfordsville. Talbot
has secured deeds jor a right-of
way for the line for a distance of
10 miles, the deeds being in es
crow in the Bank of Brownsville
to become the property of the
company if the railroad is in op
eration by Aug. 1, 1909. Talbot
has begun a general -survey for
the line and is planning to build
it at once, but negotiations are
said to be in prrgress for the
purchase of the rights-of-way
from Talbot by Rhodes and his
associates, the consummation of
the deal depending on the secur
ing of a franchise in Albany and
