Study in the classroom. A knowl

composing vegetable matter, and re
turning it back to the earth 53
plant food, seems to be confined to
the few individuals who have made
this branch a special study. In
Jiew of the importance of a wider
isseiqinatiou of knowledge so
valuable to the rising generation,
the Oregon Agricultural College
has wisely added this study to the
curriculum, and its senior class
enjoys tho privilege of obtaining a
thorough elementary course through
class work, and laboratory practice,
embracing a study of tho t-acterial
diseases of man, and of domestic
animals, fermentation, dairy bac

The clectrio storm Sunday was
the most severe that has been ex
perienced in Corvallis in years.
It was nenr enough and powerful
enough to burn out the plaiinum
wires of tee faee-board at the tele
phone office in this place During
the progress of the storm there were
sounds like -the explosion nf fire
crackers E.t the office and Miss
Emma Crawford, who is "central,"
became consideiably alarmed.
Luckily, a number of the telephone
company's men wore in town and
the damage was quickly repaired.
The concussions were powerful
enough to shake things up pretty
well, make dishes rattle, etc.

Mrs. Jane Moore Hurley, who
died recently at the home of her
daughter, Mrs. Andrew Emerick,
in Portland, was the mother of
the late Judge Hurley and A. M.
Hurley. The former was a cir
cuit judge at Portland until his
death, a few years ago, and was
highly honored. A. M. Hnrley
was once a prominent citizen o:
About five years ago, while
residing w:th her daughter in
this city, Mrs. Hurley met with
a fall, which resulted in the
fracture of a hip, which never
knit, and sines the accident she
has been a helpless invalid, and
had to be handled like' a child,
but thr6ugh the years of her
sufferings slie was always patient
and uncomplaining:.
Mrs. Hurley was born on the
Bay of Fundy, June 18, 1805.
She was maided to Rev. Andrew
Hurley near Picton Cit5r, in the
Province of Nova Scotia, Octo
ber 23, 1S32. In 1847 she was
left a widow. In 1864, with her
children she crossed the plains
with an ox team, managing her
affairs on the long journey with
the help of her children. Their
first years were spent in the Pow
der River valley, Bake county.
Afterwards settling at S-lem she
began the practice of medicine,
and continued it for a number of
sears. He? two sons, Judge and
A. M. Hurley, became promi
nent and respected citizens.
From the injury received Mrs.
Hurley has been confined to her
bed since March, 1896, suffering
almost constantly. She was a
devoted Christian, haying been
an active member of the church
since she was 15 years oldv Dur
ing the past three months her
sufferings were greatly inten
sified. Thanksgiving day she
lapsed into a semi-conscious con
dition, and remained so until her
death. Three daughters survive
her Mrs-. E. E. Emerick and
Mrs. S. A. Robinson, ef Port
land, and Mrs. B. Pleter, of Con
don, Oregon.
Sketch of Geo. W. Downs, of Portland,
Who will Award the Premiunss.
Such a cackling of hens and
: crowing of cocks as bxs been go
ing 011 for the past two days, has
never beeu heard in Corvallis be
fore, not even at the close of a
presidential election. Yester
day was the eve of the poultry
show so eagerly awaited by our
people, and a prying reporter,
taking advantage of the license
of the press, took a peep behind
the scenes before the performance
was in shape for public presentation.
The entire lower floor of the
Allen & Farra brick, which has
been fitted up as a show room,
was filled with coops nicely ar
ranged lor display, and over
200 fowls, mostly from Linn and
Benton counties, were being
weighed and marked for exhibi
tion. Half a dozen men were
hustling about making prepara
tion for the hundreds of birds
entered from al seo&tons of the
state which were to arrive on
the Southern Pacific and after
noon trains.
We all think we have seen
some pretty fowls, but the a-er-age
barnyard chicken is as home
ly as a mud fence compared with
the prize beauties new ready for
exhibition at the poultry show
iu this jcity. If you have never
seen a plumed and gfOomed
Plymouth Rock, White Leghorn,
Minorca or the fifty other breeds
the poultrymen of the state are
now presenting to the local pub
lic, yon should not left the oppor
tunity slip to see them. We
never imagined 6uch shapliness
style and beautiful plumage ever
adorned that class of birds usual
ly givetl little attention and
commonly spoken of as branyard

bird always wins, Mr. Downs
remarked that . for a certainty
they did not. All judges make
mistakes, as also do all clerks.
A good clerk is just as impor
tant as a gcod judge. He firmly
believes tho score card to be the
best way of judging, if the work
is propen y done and pi'operly
checked. It is much more of
n educator than comoarison
judging. The beginner especial
ly wishes to know how near his
birds scored to the prizewinners,
if they do sot win and as Mr.
Downs says, the most informa
tion comparison judging gives to
nen-prizewihners is that they
got left. The score card should
tell one how good his birds are;
if he should keep part, all, or
discard altogether his present
stock and start new. The Asso
ciation is composed mostly of
experienced braiders that have
had considerable ' experience in
the management of the state
shows. There will be some very
fine birds shown by the local
fanciers and in addition there
will be birds from Portland and
elsewhere, some of which have
just returned home from the
Oakland California Show vic
torious. That the show will be a suc
cess is warranted by the number
of entries now received. Such a
lot of crowing, cackling beau
ties, all in their Sunday best will
be a sight long to be remember
ed in Corvallis. Follow the
crowd and find the place.

We give a half-tone out of
Judge Downs in this column,
and it is pronounced by those
who have met him to he a good
likeness. He was born in Pitts
burg, Pa., June 21st, 1858, and
has bred poultry ever sinca he
was able to handle them. He
commenced with Light Bran
mas thirty years ago; later tak
ing np White Leghorns, follow
ing with Brown Leghorns, then
Barred Plymouth Roeks and
back to Light Brahrnas, then to
Black Cochins. He then emi
grated to Oregon. Again takisg
up Light Brahrnas, then dispos
ing of all of these and trying
Black Langshans, Black Minor
cas, Buff Cochins, White and
Silver Wyandofct9, but finally
settfed down to Barred Plymouth
Rocks, always aiming to acquire
a knowledge of the different
breds that would qualify him to
judge them. As to how success
ful he has been we quote th fol
lowing from Oregon's-' official
poultry paper, -issued just after
the State FairC
"Our 'local judge, George W.
Downs; seems to have given
good satisfaction in his decisions
at the State Fair poultry show-
so far, not a complaint."
"Judge Downs gave excellent
and impartial decisions through
Out and there was no criticisms
heard among the . breeders
although there w?as yiaturally
some disappointments.'.'
It has frequently been said,
that Mr. Downs gives ho in
flated scores. A bird soored un
der him will score just as much
under any other judge. There
is one thing he is proud ot, that
there has never been a bird dis
qualified by other judges where
Downs had previously scored
him, as he always finds the de
fects. As Amos . Wilkios ouce
said, he - can Just look a feather
