California's crop averages 50,000 bales annually, while that of Washington is esti mated at 75,000 There is also much speculation in the minds of hop men regarding the b3st steps to be taken for the disposal of the crop at pi ices satisfactory to all. Some propose pooling, while others ad vance the idea of cutting the pro duction down to the demand. It is thought that a good, . wide-awake association would prove beneficial in many ways.

Girls of the O A C basket ' ball team, we are proud of yon! Your victory of last Friday night is the bright paiticular star in a firma ment unclouded by a single defeat. You are champions of the North west, and your long list of victories have been well earned and justly merited. Your conduct, under try ing circumstances, like those im posed upon you last Friday even ing, has been modest, ladylike and above reproach, and makes you worthy of all the admiration and applause you have received. Your record for this yea.: alone is an en viable one: O A C vs Albany, 47 to 2; O A C vs State Normal, 22 to 2; O A C vs Chemawa, 31 to 4; O A C vs Portland Y M C A, 7 to 5.

He was county commissioner at the time of his death, and was counted amomg the most level-headed men of the coun ty. For several days he had not been feeling well, especially on the Sat urday and Sunday preceding his death; nevertheless he kept about and was choring around near the woodshed at the time death over took: him. He died alone and whether death was instantaneous or not is conjecture, In publio life he has always been a citizen for the public to be proud of, and had he lived but a few weeks longer he would have completed his term of tour years as county commissioner. The wife and seven children sur vive him. The funeral services were held at the home of the de ceased Friday morning and the re mains were interred in Bellfountain cemetery. Additional Local. Much Complaint. For some time there has been compiaint, and not without cause, on the part of the Alseans regard ing the condition of the road be tween Philomath and Alsea. The cause of the trouble seems to be that part of the load is in Willam ette precinct, and the people of the little valley claim that in order to reach market they must work some six or seven miles of road that is not in their district. This on top of the fact that they have, all told, some fifty miles of read to keep up aud only about sixty men to do the work. Moreover, it is nearly all mountainous and must be worked with pick and shovel, as road scrapers cannot be used to advant age there, as in the valley. It is claimed that there are only about three months of the year that they can reach market with a reasonable effort, and that their produce must lie in there on account of the roads until it is often out of season, or until there are heavy losses on account of a decline in prices. That this is a serious state of affairs goes without saying, aud it ought to attract the attention of some person or party in position to do something in aid of the citizens of the Alsea.

Many of the farmers are com plaining of aphii on the grain crop. It is something unusual for aphis to be in evidence so early in the season and there is considerable anxiety felt as to the result. As' a general thing aphis does not ap pear on crairf until just before it ripens. Some of the farmer are of the opinion that a few bright days may settle the fate of the pests. It seems that spring grain suffers more than the fall sown fields. Registration figures have been climbing up rapidly the last few days, resterday at noon lbu names appeared on the books. Some interesting facts are to be gleaned from these records. The two Corvallis precincts, lyiug wholly within the city, show a con siderable increase in voters over the poll of two years ago, while the other two, comprised in part of the adjacent country, show a falling off. In 1898, Corvallis precinct No. 2, polled 187 votes, the present regis tration is 206; Corvallis, No. 3 polled 160, and shows a registra tion of 171; Corvallis No. 1 polled 1G5, but registers only 156, while Corvaliis No. 4 polled 150, and only 109 have yetregistercd.

Scott's broad jump of 19 feet 7 inches, and Palmer's running of the 120-yard hurdles in 17 1-5 seconds, were efforts worthy of the final field day struggle.

Prices from 45c to $6.50. fTROCERY selling in a depart ment store no longer attracts attention because of its novelity, but for the reason that the best of food products costs less there than the exclusive grocer charges. This store is easily in the lead in this respect. Our grocery de partment is appreciated by well posted buyers because it offers an opportunity to supply the family needs in this line at closest prices. Country produce taken. YifHENEVER you find a " properly organized and rightly conducted men's furnish ing stock in a dry goods store there you will find a successful one.

All onr customers will bear out these statements. We believe this is the best place for you to buy shoes, and solicit your patronage. F. L. Miller. Every item offered below is proof of the above assertion. The quotations are only a very meagre representa tion of the values which place this store unquestionably in the lead. This store is crowded with the most com plete and comprehensive stock of dry goods we have ever shown. Every line was bought at close prices, and the goods will be passed along to our customers at the usual small margin of profit which has made this store so successful and popular. The New Spring Parasols Are Here, This store offers many attractions to economical buyers. A store that relies solely on low prices to win and hold trade is playing "a losing game."

UR glove stock is the best patronized and most popular in this vicinity, because we make a constant tffort to show a larger line, and offer better glove values than any other local dealer. It is not easy to do a satisfactory kid glove business. It requires long experience, careful buying, con scientious selling and a willing ness to be content with a small profit. We recognize all these requirements and conform to them. That's why Corvallis women can get better gloves here for the price than elsewhere.
