Jefierson Myers, ex-state senator of
Linn county, takes a more hopeful
view of tbe hop situation than most
growers: Bays the late rains have done
no damage to hops, aud will not, so
long as the weather remains cool, and
clears up lu any reasonable time. The
first rain and the warm weather
which followed did Increase hop lice
aud mold, but the present rain Is do
ing nothing of the sort, and the hops
not previously Injured are all right.
In fact, the delay lu picking, he
thinks, will be a beuelit, as it ollows
the hops to get ripe, aud it is his idea
that piany hops are picked too green.
The Anchor 8 Chemical Company,
of this city, have forwarded to the state
fair at Salem, some very fine samples

eseutial oils of pepcrnilnt, hemlock,
cedar, juniper and roslu;also a large
Invoice of Llveriue, a preperation that
this concern plaoed on the market

the best of satisfaction aud meetlug
with great sales all over the state. Dr.
J. A. Lambereon, who Is general man
ager of this oonoeru, has forwarded
some fine specimens of Cascara Bark
and. Qregon grape root with numerous
other botanloal sped mens, These goods
will also be on exlbltion at the fair lu
Portland, and we predict that they
will attract more attention than any
other county exhibit in the state.

W. T. Peet, cashier of the First Na
tional bank of Corvallls, died about 9
o'clock Tuesday forenoon at Corvallls,
from tbe effects of dose of tincture of
aconite taken by mistake. About 7
o'clock Mr. Peet went Into Graham's
drug store. A bottle of blackberry
brandy usually set behind the pre
scription counter. Mr. Peet, as was
his custom, picked up a bottle that
looked like the blackberry brandy,
poured out au ounce and a half in a
graduate, and drauk it. "That tastes
funny," he remarked to Will Graham,
the clerk, "It Isn't the brandy Is it?"
Graham remarked It was all right, and
drauk about au ounce from the bottle.
He Immediately remarked that they
bad taken aconite. Doctors were cal
led, aud everything done possible to
overcome the poison. The case of Mr.
Peel proved ineffectual. Mr. Graham
partly overcame the effect of the dose,
and the Indications are that be will
live. The fatal aconite, which had
been used at the perscription counter,
bod been set down where the black
berry brandy bottle usually set. Mr.
Peet was one of the most prominent
meu of Corvallls, where he moved four
or five years ago from Eugene. He
