The union church service last evening
was especially good, a large crowd be
ing in attendance, and the music for
the occasion was well rendered. There
is a spirit of unity at ' both the young
people's meeting and the evening wor
ship that is good to see, and everyone
is enjoying the services to the utmost.
The Corvallis & Eastern railroad has
wisely concluded to protect Sunday ex
cursionists and the glitter of a star on
a U. S. Marshal had a salutary effect
on the rough-neck element. , One gen
tleman who failed to raise the window
when disposing of his beer bottle kindly
contributed to the expense fund of the
C. & E. and repeated the dose on the
homeward trip. The excursion yester
day was a very decided improvement.
It is a sad sight to see young women
forget that civilization makes some
claim on all classes of humanity and
in so doing bring disgrace upon
themselves, their families and their
friends. The throwing of cherry pits in
the faces of the passerby and strewing
the sidewalk on Saturday would make
any rude, thoughtless boy ashamed of
himself and scarcely to be thought of
as coming from women. Chief Wells is
to be commended for making them clean

beach the visitors were" huddled togeth
er like a band of sheep in any place

stockings were a sight which would cer
tainly touch the stony heart. Thpr
oughly chilled it was impossible to chew
gum and indulge in other innocent
amusement. Thirty-two young people,
properly mated, and' hailing from Co
burg, were sorely disappointed and anx
iously awaited the returning train.

W. F. Wakefield, of Eddyville was 'n
town todav and gave a very interesting
description of the changed conditions of
the coast country during the past two
or three years. As a stock country it
is rapidly being settled with new people
who are turning their attention largely
to sheep, goats and cattle and as the
mist laden ocean breeze always keeps
the ground moist the grass is ever green
and fresh. Dairying is also very prof
itable and to this industry Mr. Wake
field has turned his attention.. A pretty
little story he tells of milling nineteen
cows and churning out $160 this month.
Two of the critters are heifers and five
strippers but the others hustle to make
up the3eficiency. Many others are also
engaged in this industry and the flies
buzz sweetly around the sour milk cans
at Eddy vile as the train pulls in. $3, 000
was paid for one mohair pool there and
many new billys are coming every year.
When the Swift Packing: Company at
Portland call for all kinds of stock just
watch that country develop.

Realizing that the rapid growth of Corvallis . de
manded the best newspaper service that could be given
both the Gazette and Times had made arrangements to
publish a daily edition, and while each paper, in its pros
perous condition and with its respective clientele could have
gone ahead and carried out to the fullest extent its own
plans, it has been deemed wise to concentrate their facili
ties and by so doing be in a better position to serve the
public with one first-class daily and weekly paper.
From every point of view it is certain that this con
solidation will be for the best interests of the people of
Corvallis and Benton county, for it will be the constant aim
of the publishers "to give to the public the best possible
newspaper- service that conditions will warrant and to keep
making improvements commensurate with the growth of
the city and country.
The combined circulation of the two papers will give
the merchants a medium that cannot be excelled for adver
tlsing purposes, and at the same time enable them to real
ize the greatest results from their appropriations for this
There should be no good reason why the change
will not prove in every way beneficial and be welcomed
by the business men and the readers or both papers, re
gardless of any sentimental ideas, about the continuance of
the city's oldest papers. The daily should be taken in
every home in the city, and the weekly should find an
abiding place in every home not reached by the daily. The
public, in helping to bring about this result, will be aiding
to build up for Corvallis and Benton county a daily and
weekly publication that will be a source of genuine pleas
ure and pride. v
Unexpired subscriptions to the Times and Gazette
will be filled out with issues of either the Daily or Weekly
Gazette-Times, as may be preferred. Money due will be
paid at the office of the consolidated papers.
