On the arrival of the evening train
last Thursday a weak ago, a disting

State Agricultural college arrived in

These gentlemen hart visited our city

Promptly at 7:30 p. in., the asseniblege
was called to order and . B. Monta

words announced the object of the
meeting. Hon. M. A. Miller made
the address of welcome in a very grace
ful speech which was enthusiastically
received by the guests of the evening
aud the the large assemblage1 present.
President Bloas in responding, thanked
the speaker and people of Lebanon for
their kindly welcome and hospitality:
he then made the address of the even
ing, his subject being "The Agricul
tural College and its Purposes."
Many of the citizens of Lebanon were
surprised that within eighteen miles
of ui there existed a finely equipped
polytechnic college as well as a U. 8.

aged by a council of educated and
Professor Pernot manipulated a nia
gio lantern which projected tlie
grounds, buildings and many interest
ing experimeuts on the canvas while
Professor French explained in terse
and graphic language the various
views presented. All present enjoyed
the evenlug, feeling that it was good
to be there and went home feeling
they had learned a great many things
they did not kuow before.
The forenoon of Friday, March 1,
waa taken up by Professor H. T.
French on "Clovera aud Forage
Plants," aud by Professor M. Craig on
"Oregon Weeds." It was a caution
the way the farmers aud fruit growers
present fired question after question at
the professors, each one of which was
most satisfactory answered.
The sftern on was occupied by Pro
fessor Blosse on the subject of "Drain
age of Farm and City," aud by Pro
fessor G. M. Coote on "Pruning and
aamll Fruits," the farmers as usual
taking a lively part in the discussion.
At the evening session Professor F.
F. L. Washburn lectured ou "Injuri
ous Insects" aud Professor G.W. Shaw
ou "Waste ou a Farm." Both these
papers deserve the bigli estimation
in which they were held by the large
audience present as testified by their
applause. The farmers and fruit
growers took lively interest lu the
various discussions and seemed to
enjoy keenly tlie opportunity given
them by the courteous scientists of
The Masquerade. '
The Masquerade social given by the
ladies of the Macabeea last Saturday
evening wus a grand sued as in every
way, and the best thing of the kind
that has been In the the city for some
time. There were about 100 maskers
of all sizes and ages, fiom little lots to
old hoary headed men aud women.
There were darkies, scarecrows, Her
alds, big aud little Chinamen, girls in
blue, pages of old King George',
clowns, hunters, tramps, dudes, cooks,
old ladles, young ladies, monkeys, etc.
There were some beautiful oostums and ,
maskers and some of the most hideous
looking sights that we ever saw. The
most completely disguised person that
we saw was Mrs. B. F. Kirk, who was
dressed in a newspaper costume and
mask; aud was among tlie nicest cos
tume of the evenlug. The Expkess Is
certainly under obligations to her for
the way she displayed us that even
ing. The next was Mrs. J. W. Guy,
as genial old Grandma, while Mr. Guy
was nut much behind her as John
the Chinaman, and they did not even
recognize each other. We ure sorry
that the parties that were to get the
names with chara'ter each repre
sen ted did not hand them to us in
time to publish.
It Was a Surprise.
The following very complimentary
tetter explains itself:

An item In a recent issue of Thi
Expeess headed "In an Acorn Shell"
and signed "A Sinner" Is worthy of
notice. The contribution throughout
is an aspersion designed to cast igno
miny ou our prosperous and creditable
league. Sinner aiserted in his effu
sion that the Epworth League of
Battle Ridge waa in a state of snail
like contraction and that the members,
being ao few, could crawl into an
acorn shell. These assertions are
simply erroneous and without founda
tion. My friend also advocates that
sinners, such as himself, should he
permitted to attend league meetings as
they are in the majority. Thle ftate
ment is unable to bear inspection, but
I will just let It pass for tlie interim,
as my friend seems to have a great
disposition tor whining over false
statements. I might say that our
league consists of about twenty mem
bers at present, and aa many respect
able young people who are not mem
bers come aud take active part with ua
it follows that our meetings are up to
the standard and are all that can be
desired. I am glad my foasil friend
limited bis remarks to the league only
it Is a wonder he did not attack nur
prayer meetings, oloss meetings or
Sunday school. But I suppose he con
cluded he had done enough for the
devil and probably was permitted by
his Satanic Majesty to draw off. I
suppose Sinner was quite at home at
the dance not long since. Madam
Rumor was present and declares it was
a drunken revel; a general break
down, and the winding up of dancing
forever in the vicinity of Battle Ridge.
Thus this great evil, consequent to the
weighty influence of onr stable and
virtuous League, has received lta
obsequies, and very soon it shall have
passed into oblivion,
