Those farmers who think that college professors don't know any thing about work had a good oppor tunity to get a more correct opin ion on the subject by watching Professor Kent at work in the dairy building at the State Fair. Any farmer who can hold his own with Prof Kent through a long day's work has reason to rejoice in his strength and staying ability. Ore gon Agriculturist. The general opinion is that the Mongolian pheasant is wild and untameable, but according to the Eugene Register it appears that there aie exceptions now and then. It says: Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Hu Ttnlann heard a noise on her porch and opening the door found a China pheasant making an effort to get into the house. She bid it wel come and the bird is quite at home in its new environment. It is a wild bird and is evidently seeking safety. Hon. H. B. Miller has written to Colonel Dosch from Shanghai, and has the following to say of the peacheH grown in that part of the world: Peaches are quite plenti ful, and fairly good if picked when ripe. The Chinese don't realize the difference between ripe and green fruit, and seem to eat the v.. J .in nltli tUn ca.nA relish they do ripe, hence most of the fruit is unfit to eat, being many tins 8 only half grown. Good peaehes oould be produced here, but the peach worm is very bad, and in three-fourths of the peaches. It is a worm that operates exactly like the codlin moth, and looks like it, but is some smaller. It eats into the peach anywhere and spoils the fruit, doing more dam age to the fruit than the codlin moth does to the apple. So far as I can learn, toothing is done to de stroy or check them.

During the week C. K. Spaulding has been moving his logging outfit from the Santiam to the Luckia- mute. Mr. Spaulding has discon tinued operations on North Santiam for this season. Two carloads of OKging outfit and a force of twenty men were brought down by the C. & E., Tuesday. Dr. Withycombe Rives as the cause of the partial failure cf orop the large amount of rain which tell during the spring, and the manner in which it fell. He says that the land was packed so hard that it- was imnosaible to receive nroner nourishment, and cites the fact that the more finely pulverized the soil' of the summer fallow last tall, the harder the ground was packed and the poorer the crop. There is no doubt but that it was due to some climatic Influeno?. Robert Lanka is once more en rolled on the books at the O A O. As a pencil -artist he has an en viable reputation and some of his work in designing is worthy of more than ordinary mention.

Buggy Upset Last Tuesday, Clyde Trapp, employed as driver for the Mc Mahan Stables of this city, came near having quite a serious run away with his team at Albany. He left here with a buggy team to drive a gentleman who had beeu hunting birds in this sec tion to Albany, where he was, to catch the afternoon tram They reached the depot in sea son for the train. The gentle man in boarding the train for got his "grip" and called to Mr. Trapp to hand it to him. In doing so the driver was of cenrse obliged to leave his team stand ing. Something occurred to frighten them and they started to run away. Mr. Trapp was quite equal to the occasion, and by jumping pretty lively, suc oeeded in getting one of the horses by the bit. This- partially stopped the team and started it turning in a circle. The Albany street car was standing near by, and on the first round the outfit missed it a few feet, and circled on. The second time around the circle was getting smaller and the street car had a closer shave, being missed by about three feet. On the third and last kound the circle got so small that the momentum caused the rig to topple over. To this fact, per haps, is due the safety of the car. Mr. Trapp stuck like a leech to his team, and although they got loose from the buggy after it up set, finally succeeded in stop ping them. Everything con sidered, the - termination of he adventure was much different than it was expected to be at one stage of the game. Little or no damage was done. French Fruit. Prof. E. R. Lake, of the O A C, writing to the Rural North west recently, from France, con tributes much information of interest on various Eubjeots. Among other items, he mentions the fruit conditions of France, in which connection he says: This year the fruit crop of France is something marvelous. Almost over the whole country trees are breaking beneath their loads of fruit Strange as it may seem, tons of it is rotting on the ground and hundreds of tons of it is of inferior quality. When ever any reasonable price is paid for fruit it is all gathered and put to some use, but this year all varieties have borne so much that the people are not prepared to care for it all. Of the new plantings four fifths must toe vines for wire and table use and of these nine-tenths are for wine. Few orchard trees arc being planted, that is, rela tively few. On the whole the plantings of orchards and garden fruits will each year amount te many thousonda of trees, but these are in a luge part to re place dead or dying trees. The acreage of trees cannot be said to be increasing, but the vineyards are steadilv growing larger. When asked', "What will you do with all this wine," the French man shrugs his shoulders (did yon ever see a Frenchman shrug his shoulders?) it is one of the most expressive movements and means volumes, and says, "Just drink a little more. ' ' Large Sale of Prunes. For some time prune-buyers have been quite numerous in this section and they have shown much activity. The prunes dried this season in this vicinity have been unusually fine, taken as a whole, and will oemmand a good price in any market. Henry Stone sold two cur loads of prunes a few days ego to H. Cobb, who is buying for E. C. Ward, of Newberg. D. C. Rose dried a good many hun dred bushels of prunes, both Italians and Petites, this year, aud he disposed of his crop along with that of Mr. Stone. Robert Johnson," manager of the Benton County Prune Com pany, closed a deal with Mr. Cobb, Wednesday, whereby the latter receives the entire product of the big prune orcharJ. Man ager Johnson estimates the amount of dried frnit that he will supply Mr. Cobb at some where between 80,000 and 90, 000 pounds. For the prunes de livered at the car Mr. Cobb pays 5 cents per pound, and he takes the frnit ungraded. In this he takes no risk, as the fruit is a!l first-class. Music Lessons.

At the time of going to press no matters of great importanee had been passed upon. The court had not yet considered the matter of graveling roads leading from Cor vallis to Philomath and Monroe. Prior to the death of Commissioner Buchanan, that gentleman had charge of the improvement of the special fund on the road leading to Monroe, and upon the appointment of Commissioner Irwin supervision of the matter was placed in his hands.
