Official Paper of Benton County. CORVALLIS, OR AUG. 9, 1905. OUR "MORAL WELFARE" CLUB. The Corporation recently organ ized in our city, with life perpetual, is suggestive of the fact, that this age is very progressive. Bodies corporate, largely take and occupy a field according to the standard of its official heads. Few persons comprehend the great sacrifice, made by the philanthropic , gentle men, who thus devote their time and means to the social, moral and athletic upbuilding of the commun ity. The world is indeed slow, to appreciate true greatness. The so cial, moral, financial and intellect ual standing of the presiding offi cers of this new corporation, is a sure guarantee of its intrinsic worth. With such men at its head, no better endorsement could be giv en to the city, of its real merits and durability. The social horizon will be clear as noonday, and the moral wave at its zeDith, when the club is anchored on Pisgah's holy heights, bv its official heads. Horab's rpck t will soon be smitten by the wand of President Geer, intellectual and moral warmth will be focallized on society by "Happy Hooligan" as keeper of the seal, while "Mike Kline" sitting as Master of the ex checquer,' will generate a flow of sociability, truly life giving. No higher tests of the perpetuity and stability of the body corporate could be given. From no constel lation could three brighter stars have been selected; and with their names-emblazoned in golden letters 01 the escutcheon of the club, ab solute fruition is insured. The or ganization is to be congratulated on the personnel of its heads men who in their own persons represent so much of social, moral and intellect ual worth. The sign in black let ters, "members admitted only," is too much suggestive of "close com munion," and seemingly too re strictive, while, "trepasser3 hand lel according to law" is a stunner. Is a poor "trespasser" in sore need of moral and social development to be deprived the ministrations of the corporation? Is it possible, by pure oversight in the "Articles," no chair of "Morals" was establish ed, nor chair for the "Dissemina tion of Ethics"? That the corpo r ition may fully attain to the ob jects of its inception, why not file Supplemental Articles and estab lish the Chairs omitted by the oversight? Deacon McGee has thorougihly established himself, and could well fill the chair of Morals, with indi rect powers as class and devotional leader; while parson Blumberg in t he chair of Ethics with full power as dispenser would clothe the club for aggressive' work in this world of sin! To emphasize the athletic objects of the corporation, why would it not be in order to have iHappy Hooligan appear on River street next Sunday' at 2 p. m. in equestrian form as "Buffalo Bill" with Mike Kline, astride the trick donkey called "Club of Diamonds" with McGee and Blumberg, in f ac cerdotal vestments bearing the archives of the corporation? The S. P. is selling round trip tickets between Corvallis and Port laud for $3 good going Saturdays or Sundays and returning Sunday or Monday following, either on East or West side, but good, only on afternoon train from Albany to Portland on Satutdays if East side is taken.

They Were Re-wedded on Their Gold en Anniversary A Social Celebration. Sunday. August 5th, at 4their home near Belief ountain, Mr. and Mrs. William Rees celebrated their golden wedding. They were married in Jasper county Iowa in 1855, and in 1863, answering the call of the West, came by prairie schooner to Ore gon, where they settled in JJnicn county. After a stay of six years in Union county they moved to their present home where they have resided for 36 years. , Seven children were born to them six of whom are living, one being buried at the cemetery near Belle fountain. There are also ten grandchildren and four greatgrand children. Many presents were given, chief among which was a gold watch and chain presented to the bride by the eroom. The bride was attired much in the fashion of olden time, her hair being dressed the same as when, a blushing young bride, she went to the altar. Mrs. L-ee Henkle of this city is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Rees. BILLS ALLOWED. List of Glaims Ordered Paid at August h Term of County Court.

WITH WASHINGTON. At Seattle 0. A. C. Football Team's Thanksgiving Game This Season. O. A. C. wili play the Thanks giving game of football this year at Seattle, and with the University of Washington team. Thanksgiv ing day falls on the 30th of No vember. It was the turn of the Washington men to come to Corval lis, as O. A. C. went to Seattle last year; but the Washington men off ered him so large a figure to come to Seattle, that Manager Fred Stimson felt compelled to accept. The Seattle trip and the California trip, including as they do, a journey through more than two-thirds of the Coast, will give members of the team a lot of sight-seeing and in part repay them for the trouble of training. Very few dates in the. schedule have yet been closed and but little is as yet known as to what the final program of games will be. A con tract was signed Saturday for a game at CorvalHs October 7th. with Chemawa. An application has been received from Pullman for a game at Corvallis. Manager Stim son is endeavoring to arrange the financial end of the proposition so the Washingtonians can be pro grammed. They played in Cor vallis two years ago, and were de feated by a score of five to naught. That is the only occasion on which the two teams have met. IS EIGHTY SEVEN. But Not a Has Been Hoof ed it seven Miles for Hunter's License. There are sundry persons here about who consider, themselves thoroughbred Nimrods. Not one of them, however, is in a class with Reuben Gant of Philomath, who is 87 years of age, and who journey ed afoot from Philomath to Corval lis Monday to take out a hunter's license. The distance is seven miles, and the thermometer that day rose to g5, which two facts, coupled with that cher statement that Mr. Gant is, to be exact, 87 years and three months old, and al so that he did the stunt to get a hunter's license, makes the per formance one which the ordinary Nimrod may well contemplate with astonishment. Where for instance, will Burnett, Rennie, Callahan, Huston, Kiger, Wilson and Bryson be when each is aged 87 years and three months? True enough, the temperature at that place where they may then be wayfarers might be 95 degrees or even more, but not one of the bunch will be hoof ing it seven miles to get a hunter's license. As a Nimrod, Mr. Gant is in a class strictly by himself, and all the other sportsmen about town should doff their hats to him. COMES THIS WEEK. Engineer Miller to Make More Sur veys of Rock Creek Pipe Line. A letter to the Water Board re lates that Engineer Miller left Athena yesterday for Seattle, and that he will reach Corvallis the lat ter - part of the current week. A re-survey of the route for the pipe line, particularly that portion near est the proposed intake on Rock Creek, will probably be undertaken at once. It is hoped that by going further up the creek, the pipe line may yet be gotten over the ridge into the Woods Creek water shed, with a resultant shortening of the line and a lower estimated cost of the undertaking. It is the hope of the engineer and the belief of the board that a good working margin may yet be obtained between the estimated cost of the work and the limit of expenditure authorized, so that the final operations may be un dertaken with perfect safety. As soon as it becomes apparent that there is such a margin, , operations will be pushed to the uttermost. The regular meeting of the water board occurred Monday night. The report of the special committee, consisting of F. L. Miller, S. L. Kline and J. R. Smith, which made the contract for the services of En gineer Miller, was read and adopt ed. The report of the ; election for authorizing bonds was made by Clerk Kline. . All new wall paper at Blackledge's. One Dollar Saved Represents Ten - Dollars Earned. The average man does not save to exceed ten per cent, of his earnings. He must spend nine dollars in living expenses for every dollar saved. That being the case he can not be too careful about' unnecessary ex penses. Very often a few sents properly in vested, like buying seeds for his garden, will save several dollars outlay later on. It is the same in buying Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. It costs but a few cents, and a bottle of it in the house often saves a doctor's bill of several dollars.

But what of her, -amiable, lovely woman! At the Woman's Christian Convention, she made the neatest, sweetest little speech about the sinfulness of tale bearing and gossip and, at the af ternoon tea the next day she dis pensed to the company more gossip about tne neighbors than did all the rest of the assembly put togeth er. ' She belonged to a society for the prevention of cruelty to animals, but she made the poor dressmaker work day and night to get her ball dress ready on time, and then for-" got to pay the dressmaker for week and weeks. She belonged to the society for the amelioration of humankind, but she was keen on hunting bargains that were made possible by the toil and sufferings of her sisters in noi some sweat shops. She reprimanded a small boy who threw a stone at a cat, yet she drove a pair of horses with docked tails. She wrote a beautiful article for the local paper advocating organiz- uuon or AuauDon societies among boys and girls, then donned a hat containing three stuffed birds and gaily went to an editor's sanctum to submit the article. She was chairman of the commit tee on social science at the club, and gave the servant girl a cheer less garret with broken and marred furniture. She was prominent in her church kensington and read a paper de ploring the fact that the poor do not attend church more, and while reaaing it she wore silks and satins enough to defray the living expen ses of the avenge workingman's family for six months. Something about the inconsist ency of the men might be added to this, but space is too limited to make even a start on this subject. TOTAL FAILURE THERE. Crops in Arkansas Season so wet farmers Couldn t Work their Land. A private latter to Captain George A. Robinson from B. J? . Butcher, nephew, tells ot unfortunate crop conditions in Arkansas. It says: "We have made a complete fail ure m almost everything this year, in our part of the country. There will not be over one-fifth of the us ual cotton crop. Fifty to seventy- five per. cent of the land is lying out. and 25 per cent of what has been planted the crop could not be worked. I have not ploughed three days on my farm in six weeks.. It rained much in April, nearly all of May and has rained so incessant ly since that the working of the land was impossible. I can count five farms south of me lying on the prairie on Garland's Creek that made last year about 175 bales of cotton that will not make five this year. Farmers are very despond ent, and it is needless to say that merchants are correspondingly blue. Perhaps enough will be pro duced for the people to live on, but there will be nothing to pay debts with. It is hard to see what the just what the result will be. It rained so incessantly through the spring and summer that some did not, bv actual count get to work but four days. It stopped raining the last week in May, and after three weeks began again and has continued until four days ago. Nothing like it has ever happened here in the memory of our oldest people. The waters have been higher and more washouts : on the railroads than ever before. Every thing is very high ana money so scarce that it can scarcelv be had at all." ; Oregon's shortened crop is a dis appointment to Oreeronians, but it is abundant compared to the con ditions described above.
