Indications point to more or less troublous tunes be

this section, and the yamc indications would still further
point to the possible fact that instead ol the Hill interests

Lukeview Camp of Choppers Will
Erect Fine Hall Immediately
PURCHASE LOT NORTH OF COLORADO HOUSE
Location of Building Will Have Tendency to Hold
Business on Water Street and Greatly Enhance
Property Value in Immediate Neighborhood
The most important deal in Lakeview business
property that has occurred for several years was con
sumated yesterday. Lakeview Camp Xo. 125, V. O. V.
purchased from John Flynn the lot immediately north of
tin Colorado House on Water street. The lot borders on
a 30-foot alley and has a frontage on Water street of 45
leet and is 108 feet deep. While the price was but $1,500,
yet it is not indicative of the value of the property, as Mr.
Flynn placed that price on the nropertv in consideration
of the fact that the Camp is to at once erect a modern
two-story buil ling thereon. While i
tba plant have not as yet been de
ci'led upon, yet it is generally under
stood that tha building will be about
30x 70. with a storeroom ou the
ground floor and lolge room over
bead. It will be fitted up for the
exclusive use of fraternal societies,
ud arranged with anti-ronma, ban
quet bull and the Hk3.
The lack of business bouses on
Water street has for some time past
caused more or .less curiosity aa to
where uew Drug would ttud room,
and the site chosen by the Woodmen

has been on a much bigber figure

The Woodmen are certainly entitl
ed to odcd credit for tbe enterprise
shown in their undertaking, for it
will be a valaabla addition to tbe
business district of tbe town.

Corvallia. Ore., March 2. Ad
actual saving of over J1.000 in horse
feed resulted from tba information
gained by a prominent business man
and farmer of Salem, Ore., in tbe
winter short comae at the Oregon
Agricultural College. Las' year he
came nimself to the ;course, and this
year, being unable L attend, be sent
bis ranch foreman. The knowledge
gained ia tbe course on feeding of
horses alone netted him a saving of
over ?1,0C0 iu bis feed bills, and bis
animals are in finer coniition than'
ever before tie nays.
Over 5,000 would have beeu saved
by S. W. Jamiesou, of Dell. Ore., he
estimates, if he had taken the short
course two years ago. Inexperience
aud lack of training, when be came
west two years ago to develoD his
holdings of 4,000 acres of fruit lands,
caused Mr. Jamiesjj to tuaka the
usual mistakes nf tbe begiuuer. Ud-
cu attending tbe course at tbe college
this winter he discovered bis mistakes,
aud made a careful computation
of hii censequeut losses, which
amounted to over $5,000.
Th6se are but two cf a large unru
lier of similar cases which have come
to the attention of Dean Arthur 13.
Cordley of the college. It Is a special
aim of the college uot ouly to equip
youug meu to go out attar graduation
and develop the new lauds to their
utmost capacity, but to help tbe
farmers, stockmen uud orchardmen
of tbe state who are blrealy cariug
for lands of their own or in charge ot
large estates, to get the greuteut poss
ible value out of tbe laud, aud to
help them to solve the problems that
arise, and to get rid of the pests
which injure crops.
