The Corvallis Orchestra will furn ish the music for the O A C com mencement exercises. This will insure good music, as there are eight members in the orchestra and they have had sufficient practice on concert music to handle the very best selections. The annual prize drawing ot the San Francisco Examiner has taken place. Thousands looked in vain for their name on the list of prize winners. Ed Phillips, the photog rapher, was the only one in Cor vallis so far as is known who drew a prize. He drew a pair of shoes. The census enumerators are as busy as bees and are about early and late. They are allowed three cents a head for the living and five cents per head for the enumeration of the dead. They can make pretty good wages in a city, as the noses to be enumerated are not a great distance apart. On July 4th the eagle will scream in Corvallis. Everything points to a good celebration this year. The committees are all able and willing to carry out the program as they may decide upon it, and from the present indications it is possible the celebration will commence on the 3rd and continue two days. The Albany Herald in comment ing on the bail game Sunday be tween Corvallis and Albany, states that the score against their boys was so large that no one has figured it out yet. But adds that the de feat suffered set them to thinking and they have gone to work in earnest fcr the strengthening of their nine.

On Sunday they again p!ay thj same team, but this game is to be played in McMinnville. if any of the local sports are willing to back Corvallis as a winner.

Mr. Sanstrom comes highly recommended as a baker. Arrangements have been per fected by the citizens of upper Al sea for surprising Miss J. Reed, who recently arrived from California, and is visiting her mother. Miss Reed is quite an accomplished vio liniste and in order to afford her an opportunity to play under fav-! orable circumstances, a piano is to be taken to the residence of her mother today or tomorrow. The surprise is scheduled for Sunday. There was a bicycle race from Albany to this city and return Mon day evening, on a wager of $5 be tween Leo Payne and Tom Johnson, colored boot-black of Albany.

Near Approach of the Day Long Looked For by Many Students. As commencement day draws near at the O A C public attention is directed to the event, and much interest manifested in the various exercises. Tonight there will be a dance given at the armory by the Juniors, and this practically starts the series of entertainments that always make .commencement so important in the eyes of the youth.

A Bad Accident. All old-timers will remember Johnny Goins, who for a long time was in the delivery business in this city. He has been the victim of a very unfortunate accident as related by the Albany Herald of the 12th inst: Just before noon yesterday John Goins, son of Ed Goins, one of the proprietors of the Magnolia mills, was working at the top of the big wheat bins, and while cross ing over one of the bins he stepped on an old iron pipe which was lay ing across the bin, his foot slipped and he fell to the bottom of the empty bin, a distance of about 12 feet, striking on the side of his head, cutting a deep gash in the side of his head and almost severing one of his ears. It was a very difficult task to get him out of the deep bin. A block and tackle was fastened to the top gilts in the mill and he was hoisted out in that manner, and taken home. Dr. W. H. Davis was called and atteuded him. He was severely hurt, but will probably recover. For some time the residents of this city have been fully satisfied that a wedding was pending, but the majority of them were ignorant of the identity of the contracting parties. Wednesday evening in the presence of some twenty guests, consisting of relatives and friends, E. F. Bryant and Mrs. Anna S. Fisher were united in matrimony at the residence of the bride's par ents, Mr. and Mrs. E Walden, of this city. Rev. H. Gould, formerly of this city, but now stationed at Lebanon, was in attendance and tied the nuptual knot. The cere mony took place at 8:30 o'clock, and after many and sincere con gratulations the contracting couple and their guests repaired to the dining room where a most elabor ate spread awaited them. The par lors were most beautifully decora ted. Mr. and Mrs. Bryant were the happy recipients of many valu able and costly presents. The bride is a native daughter of Oregon, and is well known here. She was elegantly attired in rich and costly silk, while the groom was dressed in the customary black. Mr. Bryant is a Nebraska man, but for eight or ten years he has been a resident of this state. For three years past he has held a posi tion in the First National Bank of this city and he will continue in his present position. During his residence here he has made many friends and is looked upon as a worthy citizen of the place. For the present the newly united couple will make their home with the bride's parents. A host of rela tives and friends join in good wishes and congratulations. THE GLORIOUS FOURTH. John Buchanan's Will. Common Council. The city council met Monday night and transacted business as follows: The petition of W. S. McFadden, J. T. Phillips, and others for com pleting the sidewalk on the south side of Madison to the college grounds, was referred to the street committee. Fifty dollars was appropriated for prizes for a firemen's contest dur ing the Fourth of July celebration. The bonds of the police judge for $2,000, and the city treasurer for $4,000, were approved. Something like $1,200 was appro priated irorn the general fund, largely in payment of sewer con struction, and $40 from street fund. C B. Wells was re-elected night watch for the ensuing year. Joseph Emerickwas Mr. Well's only op ponent and the vote stood six to three in favor of the latter. There was some further consider ation of the matter of purchasing the gravel bar of Sol King. The will of the late John. Buchan an has been filed for probate. After directing the payment of all just debts, funeral expenses, etc., all real and personal property is be queathed to Ruth Buchanan, wife of the deceased, during her natural life. The property consists of 840 acres of land and improvements valued at $15,000; also stocks, notes, mortgages, etc., valued at $15,000, making a total of $30,000. The will was filed Monday in the probate court, and Ruth Buchanan has made application for letters of administration. The will directs that the widow may in any way she desires help all or either of the following-named children: John Frederick, Ruth A., Ernest G., Edith, Claude, Mil dred, Caroline Lizzie and May. Of th above-named children Edith has died since the will was execu ted. The instrument continues: "And, lastly, I appoint my wife, Ruth Buchanan, as executrix of this, my last will and testament, hereby revoking all other wills, legacies, and bequests by me here tofore made and declaring this and no other, to be my last will and testament, and I especially desire that no bond shall be requited of said executrix." The will was executed December 15, 1897, and was witnessed by E. C. Wells and R. W. Scott. Corvallis Will Celebrate As She Never Celebrated Before. On July 4 tli, 1900, Corvallis is is to have the grandest celebra tion in her history. In the lan guage of Adams, this great an niversary festival is to be com memorated "with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires and illuminations." Over $800 will be at the disposal of the commit tee having the matter in hand and the posters announcing the event will contain the display line "2-days-a" for the celebra tion will include the 3rd and 4th of July. No better opportunity has ever been offered for a successful ob servance of the day. No city nearer than Eugene will cele brate, and Corvallis will be the Mecca for all patriotic citizens for a radius of thirty miles. The program has not been ar ranged in detail, but a splendid list of horse and bicycle races is scheduled for the third. On the fourth hose races, athletic con tests, and exciting features will fill every hour of the day. As a special attraction, the services of a troupe of seven bag-pipers have been secured. A feature of the program will be a sword dance, and four brass bands will furnish a grand carnival of music. Creditors Object. A Popular Enterprise . A business house which is steadi ly gaining favor is the Corvallis Commission Store. Under the management of John Lenger its field of operation is broadening and the amount of produce handled is steadily increasing in volume. They keep constantly on hand the celebrated Corvallis and Mon roe flours, and give with each sack of the latter a package of Arm & Hammer soda. Potatoes, bran, shorts, all kinds of feed stuffs, chickens, eggs, and, in fact, evciy thing kept in a first-class commis sion house is handled by them. They are also agents for the famous Lea's Lice Killer. A case in which the creditors object to the final account of J. L,. Aiken, executor in the estate of Peter Mason, deceased, and attempt to cut down his charges as executor about $ 100, to pre vent him from collecting com missions, attorney's fees, and to compel him to charge himself with a certain . note of $830 and interest due from himself to de cedent, has been having a hear ing before Referee E. E. Wilson for the past four days. E. R. Bryson appeared for the creditors and Attorneys J. H. Wilson and E. Holgate for the executor. From the evidence it appears that some time prior to his death, Peter Mason took J. E. Aiken's note for $830, for money borrow ed by said Aiken, six acres of land in Lincoln county being given as security. Mason made Aiken executor of his will. After the death of Mason, his wife yielded up to Aiken the note, upon the latter' s represen tation that a contract had been entered into between himself and decedent whereby he was to be released from his debt by deeding to decedent the six acres of land. The court, by an ex parte order released the executor and took a deed to the land. Afterward when the land was sold at execu tor's sale it brought but $25.' The estate failed to yield revenue sufficient to satisfy all claims against it, and the creditors now hold that Aiken should be held for the note and interest, and be deprived of commissions and at torney's fees. Dilley The Fixer is now prepared to do all kinds of bi cycle repairing, enameling, varnishing, etc. Besides being a champion "fixer' of the Willamette valley, he carries a full line of bicycle sundries and supplies.

Dick Zahn, during his recent visit to Corvallis, was recounting his ex periences in the Alsea mountains as a hunter and his conversation turn ed to the subject of dogs. He has five dogs at present, and one of them has been with him on all of his hunting expeditions during the past six or seven years. With this dog Mr. Zahn has killed sixteen cougars. The dog. although as deaf as a post, is still as agile as a oat and as keen a hunter as ever. Arthur O. Bowersox. WINDOW DISPLAY. An Attractive Lot of Lion Coffee Prem iums in Allen & Woodward's Window. We frequently hear the claim, "some thing given for nothing," hut do not often see an actual demonstration of the principle, like a display of Lion Coffee premiums now on exhibition in Allen & Woodward's display window. Here are many valuable articles, all given free for the lion-heads cut from the Lion Coffee wrappers. These are not cheap' articles, but comprise clocks, um brellas, watches, gold rings and jewelry, besides many things useful and orna mental in the household, or will be en joyed by the children. Lion coffee fully deserves the popularity which it has gained, because of its superior strength and flavor. For some 18 or 20 years Arthur O. Bowersox had been a resident of Benton county, and at the time of his death he was respected by all who knew him. His death occurred Monday in Salem and the remains were interred there Wednesday un der the auspices of the Odd Fel lows, of which order he had been an active member during life. The deceased was a native of Ohio, and was aged 36 years when death overtook him. He owned a small farm a few miles south of Philomath. In 1888 he was united in wedlock to Miss Cetta Arm strong, a daughter of Mr.- and Mrs. William Armstrong, of this county. Six children were the result of this union. Death undoubtedly was the re sult of a kick he received on the forehead from a horse during March. Nothing was thought of it at the time, and until about two weeks ago Mr. Bowersox seemed as well as ever. He then became de ranged and was so violent ' that it was considered best to transfer him to Salem for treatment. This was unavailing and death resulted. There are many friends and ac quaintances in this vicinity who heartily sympathize with the be reaved relatives.

Prices from 45c to $6 50 j-ROCERY 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. Whenever 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. Men no longer shun dry goods store furnishings, for they know they can get correct styles at close prices. We invite the attention of our customers to an especially fine and complete line f ot neckwear just opened. iHOE value consists in wear, style and comfort.

All our 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.

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." To win such success as this store is winning it is necessary that the low prices should represent goods of strictly reliable quality, Every woman in this city who is posted on dry goods, and who takes the time to compare goods and prices will admit that our values are superior. We make and hold customers by treating them right. We lead; others follow. T F you want a stylish spring hat for $3.00, just as good as the $5. 00 kind, come here. The only difference is in the absence of the name, and "what's in a name. " If you are willing to pay two dol lars for a name, buy the five dol lar hat. If you want to pay only for the hat, come here. Agent for Kingburry hats. UR glove stock is the best patronized and most popular in this vicinity, because we make a constant effort 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. -1EFORE your spring gown are fitted a new corset wil be needed.
