',The somber, peaceful old town has awakened with enlthsiasm to the Met that she is sttrrountded by a huge lild develop ment, aremnarkable plaati.i of wealth produging orchards, an intensive culti vation of immense proporitlons that is attrtcthil the attention of the whole country, * Reallslng the Importance of her ItlquW position, Corvallis hap arisen from her 'peaceful slumbers and now announces to the public, "Please take notdee, Corvallls Is on the map." Lo. cated in one of the prettiest and most fertile parts of the Bitter Root valley, the center of the extensive planting of acres upon acres of fruit trees which will shortly be producing thousands of carloads of fruit, Corvallis seeks recognition and is justly entitled to her share of the prosperity which the Bitter Root Is destined to see In the near future.

Much credit is due Dr. Browning of the Woodslde Orchard company for his untiring efforts in getting the move ment on a tangible bases where some actual work will he done to at least take care of the fruit grown in this vicinity.
