Cure for Tree Infested
SIMPLY THREE RUSTY NAILS
Driven at Base of Apple Tree
is the Simple and Sure
That three rusty nails, driven
at the base of an apple tree in?
t fested with parasitic '. insects
called "borers will effectually
stop the ravages of the pest that
has successfully frustrated efforts
of government scientists and
horticulturists through the
, country, is the statement of E.
J. Chipinan, who has had ex
perience as an apple grower in
the orchards of southwest
"It has been some time since
I was actively engaged in the
business," said Mr. Chipman,
"but I had the remedy called to
my attention during the. recent
trip through the apple growing
part of Missouri between here
and Memphis. Acre after acre
was plainly being destroyed by
the pest, as I could see from the
falling leaves that should not
drop for a number of weeks.
The "borer" is the greatest
enemy of the famous Missouri
red apple, and with the excep
tion of the remedy which I have
found infallible, there is no
means by which to stop their
' ravages. -' ' ..'
"The nail cure is so simple
and so hard of explanation, in)
its effects thai 'many people wHfj
not give it a trial, .but l used
f it for years and always found it
to work like a charm. Just take
three rusty nails, alid drive
them in the base of the trunk,
about a foot from the ground
and about three inches apart.
I do not know whether the pol-,
ished, round steel nails will give
the same results. A, trial will
prove that the remedy is success

The next meeting of Corvallis
Grange will be held Sept. 26, at
2 o'clock in Agricultural Hall,
second story, northeast room.
All members please try to be
present. Our Grange is most
favorably housed in the O. A. C.
and should be a real source of
inspiration and power to the
landed proprietors of the state.
It is noticed with regret by
humanitarians that cities grow
apace fed by constant influx
from the country homes. Is it
an "Ignis fatuus" that lures
them? Or is it true that the
mills and factories, the shops
and stores of those erreat com
nnii siores in liiusu "ictiii i
mercial centers, offer our young!
people e. fuller life, a larger de-
'velopment, greater happiness
than can be gotten out of resi
dence on the beautiful uplands
and pleasant country valleys;
from the work in subduing the
earth with the cleaving plow and
pulverizing harrow, from sow
ing and reaping and ingathering
of Earth's harvest. If this is
true let us '-hang up the shovel
and the hoe," for the culture
and happiness of men is of first
importance, and let us continue
as we are doing, being feeders of
the city's growth,' and turn out
yearly battallions of youth as
typewriters and stenographers,
bookkeepers and clerks, to en
large those "ulcers on the body
politic," as a political economist
calls our cities.
We Grangers do not believe
. there is a more moral, happy,
that, which should, and must ex- " . - - I
ist in time, on the-farm.
, this is not the case at present in
many instances mates it none
the less true nor nearer the
truth to ostrichlike duck our
heads under the stream, of ten
dencies which make for the city.
This simply shows us how inef
fectual as yet is our work and
how essential it is that we farrn-
inp neonle see things as they
are, with more mental vigoT and
less muscular brawn, that we
work for "beauty as well as for
bread;" that we put the spirit of
religion' and poetry into this
work; otherwise, what are we
but hulks of humanity, sailing
down the" stream of time tinder a
sunless heaven, toward a tide
less sea and a rockbound haven?
Some of the interesting fea
tures of Saturday's program' will
be a talk by Professor Dryden,
and Professor Kent, who has
lately leturned from Hew York,
will tell us something about farm
life in that state.

turist may . plow and the horti

"Resolved, That the Granges

The management of the opera
house has about completed ar
rangements for the appearance
in Corvallis of a first class stock
company, producing modern
plays at popular prices. It is
proposed to have this company
appear at the opera house every
Fndav and Saturday nigni, givr
ing only such plays as have won
popular approval ana .a cnange
of bill eachnight. The corn
nan v will have a circuit of Wil
lamette Valley towns playing
one night a week in each of the
others. Believing' that a field
exists for a venture as outlined
above, the "Alcazar" stock com
pany under the management ot
W. M. Rasmus, nas been orga
nized. Its members include
some of the best "stock actors on
the coast, selected with an eye
to thir snecial fitness for the
work- and a reoetoire of plays
will be presented that will appeal
to the best class of people in ihe
various cities. Heretofore, ti.e
oonortunitv to see productions
of this class has been open only
to residents of the larger cities.
The "Alcazar" Company will be
second only to the famous Bak

compare favorably with those
given at the Baker Theatre- - In
the event of the arrangements
being completed, the first ap-
nearanee of this company in

Other Interesting Newsn
New students from all . parts
of the coast are coming in by
every train. It is now plainly
evident that despite the building
of 1UU new houses tne boarding
and rooming - accommodations
for students will be taxed to the
utmost capacity. - Board and
room now range from $4 to $5 a
week, and many of the best
families in town , have opened
their homes to students in order
to avoid the apparent conges
tion. There is no question, how-'
ever, that all the students com
ing will be accommodated, with
the understanding that : young
ladies entering college will have
quarters in Waldo Hall unless
provision is made with the Presi
dent to the contrary.
Clarence Leonard, who gradu
ated last OAC commencement,
has entered the U. of O. as a
Junior, which is to say that in
two years he will blossom out as
a full-fledged journalist as he is
taking that special course. He
has always been an enthusiastic
and patriotic promoter and root
er of the athletic games atthis
institution: hence he will neces
sarily undergo a change of heart
before the great football game
takes place between the two in
stitutions next Thanksgiving
Manv changes have been
made in the arrangement of the
rooms on College hill. The fiH
nancial secretary, Dean tJexen,
moves into his new quarters in
the east end of the old library
room. Opposite his quarters
will be the Registrar's officeJ
which will be open for business
this Fridav morning. Half thd
teachers in the college will have
rooms different from those occu
nied last vear. Therefore, thd
rooms will all be numoerea anai
5 - .
nlaced on the schedule so thai
students may know where to re-i
port for their recitations.
The registration for the com
in? school vear is variously es
timated at 1200 to 1600 students
Tf there should be the usual in
crease as expected there will inj
all probability be not less thai
14 0 students. .But so iar it ia
merely guess work.
Among the new students to
day are John Gill, Jr., of the J
K. Gill Book Company in Port
