John Carmichael, a Salem hop buyer, says that sales of hop3 are now being made at H'i cents, and expects soon to see a fulfillment of his prediction made some time ago, that those who held lor 15 cents would get that price. The tram-Atlantic steamer, Bis mark, arrived in New York, Friday. This is the boat that Father Jurek intended to take passage on for America. He may be expected any day now, and members of his church have been quite busy for the past few days cleaning up the church and parsonage in readiness for his occupancy when he arrives.

Roseburg Plaindealer. There seems to be considerable dissatisfaction on the part of fisher men regarding1 the fish laws of the i sUte. The Fishermen's Union, of Astoria, is trying to raise funds to have some changes in th laws nude at the nnxt meeting of the legislature. The greatest grievance appears to be over fish traps. In this connection may be mentioned that a suit against trap men on the Siuslaw river was recently insti tuted. According to the Albany Herald the English partridges recently or dered from England by Albany sportsmen are expected to arrive some time next month. They will beliberated in as favorable localities as possible, and it hoped that an other valuable srame bird will be added to the fields of the Willam ette valley. In all likelihood Bea ton will be one of the counties thus favored. The team of H. Mitchell took a lively spin Wednesday morning. They suddenly became frigtened at something in the vicinity of the carriage factory" and ran north. Mr. Mitchell did his best to keep them under control, hut after a few blocks he was thrown from the wagon His face was considerably bruised and ha was somewhat dazed by the fall, but got off pretty lucky, everything considered. The team continued soaie distance far ther. No serious damage resulted.

Mr. and Mrs. Paul Schmidt, of Albany, visited friends in this city during the week. Attorney Joseph H. Wilson ar rived home, Wednesday, from Portland, where he had been on legal business. The highest price reported paid for hops in the Willamette Valley this year, was 200 bales of choice hops belonging to F. Levy of Salem. The price paid was 1& cents per pound. This is pratty good price, but some growers are now holding for 16 cents. It is a noticeable fact that there has been a good many strargers on the streets of Corvallis lately. If any of them are seeking new loca tions they have come to the right place, for to the man who will hus tle Benton county offers as great inducements as an' section of the state. The two cases that will likely at tract the most attention during the coming session of the circuit court are these of Kuebli and Pryor. The former will be tried for burglarizing the store of A. Wilhelm & Sons, of Monro.?, and the latter on a charge of stealing the team of Mrs. Cooper, provided, the jury finds bills against them. Supt. Denmin has arranged a very fine program for the local teachers' institute to bo held at Faiimount tomorrow. Many of the most prominent instructors of Benton and Linn counties will fake part in the exercises andasfssion of much value and interest is promised. It is to he hoped that the weather may prove f.ivorable. Reference was made in our last issue to the fact that in different sections of the state tobacco will be tried next year. The Oregon Agri cultural College, located in this city, has made some very success ful experiments with tobacco on the college farm and in all likeli hood would gladly supply valuable information to anyone who expects to enter this field of industrj'. Albert Meeker, of Toledo, re turned home, Wednesday, having been in Corvallis since Saturday. He helped George Horning drive out a band of sheep, between 200 and 300 in number. Mr. Meeker expects to return in about ten days with about 125 additional head of sheep. This will make in the neighborhood of 400 head and Mr. Horning will winter them on the bottom in the vicinity of Peoria. The United State3 snagboat Math loma is tin the beach nenr Ranier, where she will lay until temporary repairs are made to her hull. The boat was engaged in pulling snags near Ranier. Several days ago she made fast to one and tried to remove it. When a strain was nut on it, however, the snag broke and j the portion that stayed beneath the water bumped against, the bottom of the Mathloma, breaking a hole in her. It was necessary to beach her. The prune growers who have been so backward going into the cured fruit association will take a lesson from the results obtained by the Willamette Valley Prune Grow ers' Association at Salem. This association was formed after it was found how slow growers were in taking hold of the state association. They have consummated a great deal, by which their entire output of about 20 carloads has be?n dis posed of to Eastern buyers at 4.J cents average. Pacific Farmer. The safe in the office of G. L. Gray, of Shedd, was blown up Mon day night and something like $75 taken. There is no clew to the perneti ator of the deed. A num- ber of people, some at a d.stance of . occagioof an JdrQ8B hv Congrees halfarm e, heard the noise but I Thog Tq -Mu3jc6 , in hau no idea what it was, and no one got up to investigate. It may be just as well for Coryallis safe owners to exercise a little caution in this regard, for in a matter of this kind it is genfrally too late to do anything when you become aware of the presence of a safe cracker. It is quite awhile since Corvallis has had an experience of this nature, and it is suggested that such caution be exercised as will render it out of the question for any one to attempt such a job in this city. Edwin Rose returned home, Tues day, from Chitwood. He bad helped his une'e, A. W. Rose, drive some goats over to the latter's rauch at Chitwood. While Mr. Rose was out in the valley looking for theiTh.e specimen is a very fine one, goats he wr.s obliged to put a man on his place to look after affairs, and even then he ruffered the loss of three sheen while he was awav. The man who was on the place heard quite a racket among the sheep one night after he had re tiied and got up for an investiga tion. However, it was so dark that he could not corral the animals, and they ran hither and yon at will. There is a difference of opin ion as to what kind of an animal killed them, some men laying tho blame on bear, others say it was j the work of wildcats, while s! ill ; others declare that the sheep were killed by dogs. None of the sheep were eaten, by their destroyer, and in all instances they were chewed a little about the head and ears. Rev D L Fields and Miss Luella Dixon, both of Philomath, were I married at that place last Tuesday. Rev T B lord pei formed tho cere mony. Notices of presidential and vice presidential election to take place November 6, 1900 were posted yos .terday by Sheriff Burnett, who also gave official notice to certain county officials in accordance with the law.

A kind welcome to all. y Young Mr. Moore, who recently arrived in this county from Illinois, was the victim of a runaway last Monday evening in which he was severely bruised. He was hauling lumber to his new home on the Calloway place, with a four horse team. Some distance below town tho animals became fright ened and ran away. No damage resulted to the wagon or horses. Beach & Bower's minstrels ap peared Tuesday night to a well filled house. And while a number of tho specialties were excellent, the entertainment on the whole was a disappointment. The program does not run smoothly and gives one the impression that it is bein cut and spliced and altered gener ally from the usual performance, which no doubt it was. This may do f r "one-night s-ands." but is poor business if a return engage ment is contemplated. Wednesday, Victor Moses, deputy for County Clerk Watters, forward ed to the state board of equaliza tion a summary of the assessment roll of Benton county, Oregon, for the year 1900, as finally equalized by the county board of equaliza tion. Tho summary shows, among other items, that there arc 68,928 9 acres of tillable land in this county, valued at $818,940; 215,746.1 acres of non-tillable land valued at $676, 425.

Fred Reise, who was recently badly injured in Albany, by the explosion of an ecetylene tank, at which time S. Stoltz was killed, is slowly recovering. His injuries are mostly about the face. It is re ported in this city that the doctors fear some kind of poisoning as the result of acetylene and corroded particles of metal that were blown into his face. It is not known yet whether these fears are well ground ed or not, but it is hoped not. A matter of local interest connected with this Hem is the fact that the tank was being prepared for ship ment to this city, where it was to have been placed in the Episcopal church, when it exploded. An enthusiastic and enjoyable time is promised at the court house Saturdav evening, this being the gUf abundance will be furnished. by the Quartet and the band. Congress man Tongue has been heard in j Corvallis before on numerous occa sion and always with profit. He is a convincing and forcible speaker, and impresses his hearers with the fact that he is thoroughly familiar with his subject. Mr. Tongue was in congress when the questions now claiming the attention of voters were being considered by that body, and speaks as an authority on these subjects. A cordial invita tion is xtended to even'one to be present. A few days ago Mr. Herman Robe, of Brownsville, found a part of a tusk of an ancient mammoth. i UC1U8 pfw diameter and two feet long. It i, was found in the slough on the i James Templeton place, about three miles of Halscy, and was washed out by the water, which has cut a ditch some ten fee, deep. Several years agD, while teaching in that neighborhood, Mr. Robe found sev eral vertebra and other bones in in the same place. Prof. Condon, of the University of Oregon, ex amined these and pronounced them genuine. These specimens are valuable, not only from the stand point of curiosity, but in establish ing the geological history of the Willamette alley. Albany Herald. Gef your Job Work done here Death of Mrs. Cauthorn. The death of Mrs. Cauthorn, wife ot William L. Cauthorn; - j - , Peak Wednesday morning about j 4 o'clock. Mrs. Cauthorn had i been a sufferer from asthma for j years and this was the direct j cause of her death. Tuesday, ! Mr. Cauthorn started with his wife for their old home on Soap Creek, but the air of the va1 ley was too heavy for Mrs. Cauthoru and when they reached Philo math it was necessary o call a physician. So serious was the attack, that it was decided best to return to the invigorating at mosphere of the peak. Mrs. Cauthorn continued to grow worse, however, and shortly be fore the end came suffered a stroke of paralysis and expired before a physician could be called. Wednesday the body was taken to Soap Creek, and here at the family residence the funeral services were held yes terday morning at n o'clock, Rev. Myron L,. Boozer officiating. Interment occurred at the Locke cemetery. Mrs, Cauthorn had been a resident of Benton coun ty for many years and was be loved by all who knew her. She was born in Missouri in 1833. and was married in that state to Win. L. Cauthoru in 1857. She crossed the plains to Oregon ia 1865. Common Council. The city fathers met Monday evening and considered a few matters of interest. In the mat ter of lateral sewers it was de cided to lay the proposition over until next May. At this time it is expected that this matter will again be taken up and bids ad vertised for. A petition from the C & E R R Company praying thot they be granted a franchise for the erection of telegraph poles in certain sections of the city was laid before the council. .After some little discussion the matter was laid over until some future meeting in order that, more in formation on the subject could be obtained. In this the coun cil acted wisely, as the passage of the ino:t trivial matter will sometimes cause a lot of future trouble. An ordinance was introduced which proposes to prohibit boys and others from jumping cn and off trains moving within the city limits. It was given considera tion and had two readings. Ac cording to its provisions a fine of from $5 to $20 is to be im posed for each offense. This matter was laid over to be taken up again at the regular meeting next month. Ordinances of a similar character have been in troduced to the council hereto fore, but hava failed to pass. In Memoriam. Brother Leiwis G. Kline was born September 1st, 182P, and, near high moon, on. Monday, Ootober 8th, to use the expres sive language of the Holy Writ, ' 'he gathered up his feet into the bed, and yielded up the spirit and was gathered unto his peo ple. ' ' Brother Kline was made an Odd Fellow in Cincinatti, Ohio, in the early 50's. For half a oeu 5ury, with aiean hands and a pure heart, he ministered at our altar. Wc read of one "wlio ever did his duty in his way of life, with strong hand, a quiet tongue and a gentle heart." This same gentleness, steadfast ness of purpose and quiet devo tion to duty, characterized the life of our Brother. When by just dealing and close attention to business he was acquiring a competence, no cavil ing was heard for "in his right hand he carried gentle peace to silence envious tongues." To the sons, bowed in early manhood by their great sorrow; to the grief-stricken daughter, honored and esteemed by the Odd Fellows of Oregon, we can only say that the Infinite Father's ways are always right.

Lake, of the O A C, writing from Stuttgart, Ger many, under date of September 17th, contributes the following that will be of interest to Ore gon fruit dealers aud growers, relating to prices in the Old World: Two dozen small peaches, 12 pfennirgs, about 3 osnt?. One basket of grapes, about 1 pounds, of fair size and quality, 24 pfennings, about 8 cents. Twenty-five prunes, Italian or German, and of .good size, 4 pfennings, about 13 cents. Twelve Italian primes, best, 6 pfennings, about two cents. One box huckleberries, about 1 2 pounds, led fruit, quite tart, 20 pfennings. Twelve apples, 30 pfennings; pears, 12 pfen nings per dozen; peaches, 24 pfennings per dozen. At Frejghburg fruit was sell ing generallj' about I one-half higher than at Strassbourg, but it was of a much better grade, both as to size' and quality. Italian prunes were selling here at top prices and they were abundant. The apples and pears surpass anything I have seen outside of Paris. Yet, generally; the crop is so large that fruit is low-prioed. For some sampler, of the best plums and peaches we paid 5 cents per pound, but a man at Zahniigen sold the fruit from a hundred well-loaded plum trees, seven years old, for 160 marks, about $38.
