as early as next Tuesday but very

have set Wednesday to begin and

seem to be a lull in the contracting

that growers refuse to contract
longer. A sale at 20 cents was re
ported from Salem Saturday.
The Same In All
The Valley Counties
The grain crop in this county is
not as large as the growers would
like for it to be, but is far ahead of
the last few, years. It is apparent
to all observers that the sooner the
farms quit raising grain for the
market in this county the better
for the grower and - the county.
This county is adapted to dairying
and to the growing of other pro
ducts than grain. Lebanon Criter-ian.

Seaside Being Surveyed
Two cre,ws of 14 men each will
take the field from Seaside to Tilla
mook. They will cover both the
coast and inside routes, to deter
mine which is the most feasible.
The route which offers the lowest
grade will be selected, the cost in
this case being the least important.
Because of this fact there is a
chance that the extension will be
built along the beacn, though it
would be expensive construction.
The inside line is expected to offer
many obstacles, but if these do
not interfere with the grades, the
location maj be made there. The
length of the extension will be
about 40 miles by the inside route
and tunneling will be necessary, in
addition to heary cuts. The Ne
eanicum and Nehalem Rivere will
be followed to obtain low grades.
Completion of the extension will
give the A. C. a total length of

answered Saturday and are now
husband and wife. The ceremony
was performed by Rev. Wigmore at
the home of the bride's parents
in the presence of invited friends
of the bride a number of which
accompanied the newly wedded
couple to Independence where bride
and groom boarded the train fir
Newport. Rice and old shoes filled
the air as the train pulled out and
exclamations of best wishes fol
lowed the departing couple.
Their friends had prepared neat
ly printed cards with the invita
tion, "Present this to the conductor
and be introduced to the Bride."
These cards were scattered through
the train and passengers kept the
conductor busy giving them in
troductions until-. Corvallis was
reached, i
Another Monmouth wedding
that was quietly celebrated last
week was that of Mr. Wm. Clod
felter of the firm of Simpson &
Clodfelter to Miss Rose Oberson of
this city. The marriage was bo1
emriized in Dallas in the presence
of a few friends and the wedded
oouple are now living happily in a
cottage prepared beforehand within
the shadow of the dome of the Ore
gon State Normal at Monmouth.
Both have a host of friends "whose
best wishes are lavished upon Mr.
and Mrs. Clodfelter. Realizing
that a wrong impression as to
which member of the firm is mar
ried, J. D. Simpson, the senior
member, advertises the fact that he
is the one left out, an ungathered
thistle on the scrubby bush of for-
torp bachelorhood.
The institution of marriage finds
devotees in "Missouri Bottom" too,
and on Saturday Mr. Q. Schutz
and Miss Iva Cave drove to Salem
and plighted troth beneath the
Goddess of Justice figure that
guards the dome of the Capital
Citv'ti court house. Mr. Schutz is
foreman of HenryOttenheimer's
Fir Grove Hop Ranch and the
bride ia one of the "Bottom's" esti
mable young ladies.

of ibis shipment will go to the
Forbes while other stock breeders
will get a share of the Polk county
Today's shipment included lambs
from the well known stock farms
of J. B. Stump and Wm Riddell it
Sons. Most of the lambs were
bought up in Palk county though
a few were purchased in Yamhill,
Benton and Marion counties. One
lamb from the lUddell farm, one
year old, sheared 23 pounds and
the carcass weighed 270 pounds.
The fleece, reckoning wool at 28
cents, was valued at $6.44; the car
cass at 4 cents, butcher's price,
$10.80 making a total of $17.24.
For breeding purposes, however, the
lamb of course brought more mon
ey. There are a number among
the bunch shipped out today whose
fleeces w eighed 21 to 23 pounds.
Polk county's Lincolnshires and
Cotswold sheep are becoming fam
ous. Breeders have been giving
attention to building up their
strain and it pays they find. Tbere
is more money in raising a blooded
animal to sell for breeding pur
poses than the common sheep for
the butcher. Mr. Percival bought
a number of Polk county lambs for
Mr. Donaldson last year and this
year he had an order big enough to
fill 7 single-deck cars.
Some of the lambs shipped from
Independence today will be seen at
the Wyoming fairs this falJ.
Prof. T. J. Newbili's
Black Bear Skin
Prof. T. J. Newbill, formerly
principal of the Independence pub
lic schools, but now ' principal of
one of the Portland schools dropped
off the northbound train yesterday
with a fresh bear skin large enough
to cover a good-sized steer. The
Prof, spent a week penetrating the
impenetrable jungles of the Coast
Range mountains in the vicinity'
of Cape Perpetua and it was in one
of the echoing chasms of that local
ity he captured bruin. For some
time, cattle have been killed by a
bear of unusual size in the vicinity
of the Cape and it is thought
Prof. Newbill killed the animal
that has been menacing cattle own
ers. The bear was shot at 4 o'clock
in the morning but took to the
woods and was not finally captured
until 2 in the afternoon. Prof.
Newbill expects to convert the
monster skin into a handsome rug.
evening. Tbere were about fifty
persons present and the occasion
was made a most pleasant affair.
Songs were sung and games were
indulged in to the heoit'i content.
Rev. Elayer made merry playing
hide-and-seek with the children, en
joying the occasion to the full of
his bent, as did everyone present.
An elegant luncheon added to the
delight of the affair. The event
waa given as a mark of esteem to
Rev. and Mrs. Elayer, who on the
following Monday were to take
ibeir departure to Mt. Vernon, Mo.
Rev. Elayer has been pastor of the
Methodist church of Independence
the past two years. He preached
his farewell sermon Sunday night
and with his family left yesterday
for Mt. Vernon in his native state,
where be goes to accept a call.
Rev. Elayer has faith in the future
of Independence and the Willam

many words in the country's be

Coming This Way
For Hop Picking
The Willamette river was fairly
crowded with logs yesterday, the
end of the big drive having about
reached this city. Last evening
the crew was bu.1. a short distance
above this city and it is expected to
reach here today or tomorrow. The
drive is a big one and thousands of
logs have passed this city in the
past few days on their slow but
certain way down to Salem, New
berg and Oregon City. Among the
logs are some monsters and these
easily strand where the water is
shallow and they are low in the
water. A number of masts are al
so in the drive but many the
logs are for the sawmill. The crew
making the drive is doing excellent
work but is necessarily slow owing
to the low stage of the river. -Albany
