Mr. and Mrs. Carl G. Hodes re turned from San Francisco, Wed nesday. While in that city they saw many old Corvallisi'es, Mr. and Mrs. S. L. Kline and family, Mr. Irving Lea, Mr. and Mrs. Emil Zeis and a number of others.' Orin Hamlin, a driver on Hns ton's dray line, committed suicide in Albany, April 1st. Unrequited love is said to have been the cause of his trouble. Hamlin spent his boyhood days in Corvallis, where his father died years ago. He was a. hard-working fallow, cbout 25 years of age. About two years ago a Harvest Souvenir, descriptive of Corvallis and Benton county, was gotten out in the Gazette office. The adver tising committee of the Citizens' League desire to secure as many as possible of these souvenirs for dis tributien, pending completion of a pamphlet whieh the committee is preparing. Parties having copies will perform a service for the coun ty by leaving them at Bryson & Woodson's office. Squire Kycraft was in Corvallis, Saturday, on his way home to Al sea, after an absence ot three and one-half mouths in Indiana, whither lie had gene with his brother, who desired to spend the remainder of his life with his sister. The old gentleman is dissatisfied with In diana, however, and contemplates moving to California. Mr. Rycraft reports a great movement of immi grants toward the Pacific North west. Nearly 2,000 were on the same and other sections of the train that brought him west. Albany is in a peck of trouble over the wagon bridge across the Willamette at that place. The last legislature amended the city char ter by making the bridge across the Willamette a toll-bridge. At a meeting of the city council the bridge wag ordered repaired, pre paratory to beginning the collection of toll, at an expense not to exceed $4,000. Last Tuesday, J. B. Tillot 80B, a contractor, commenced suit against the city, asking for an in junction preventing the collection of toll on the ground that it is a free bridge; also to prevent the re pairing of the bridge except by contract, and stopping the city from going further in debt. As the coun ty will not keep up the bridge, the suit puts the oity in an unpleasant position. Professor Frank Rigler, city superintendent of the schools in Portland, and Prof. Burnham, of the same system of Schools, have been engaged to take hold of the summer normal school work at Newport this season. Both of these gentle men have a national reputation as public school men, and they will give character to the work they are about to undertake at the seaside. Their school of methods will be by far the best on the northwest coast this season and it is believed will attract from Washington, Idaho, Montana, and the northern part of California. Prof. Smith, of the Or egon Stale Normal, will give invalu able assistance to this werk. The round table instruction, consisting of painting, music, amateur photog raphy, etc., will be placed in charge of competent instructors, and the seaside course of tec lectures will be immense. The summer normal will, probably open about the 15th of July, while the lecture course will begin about the 2nd of August. This is an opportunity to perman ently establish a great summer school at O regon's noted watering plaoe. W. A. Sanders, the watchmaker. Roscoe Bryson is expected home from New York about April 30th.

Our "Soda" is evi dently hustling as lively in Oregon City as he used to in Oorvallls. Commissioners' court was in ses sion during last Wednesday and Thursday, and numerous, matters of importance were given attention. A petition, containing signatures of citizens lepresenting two-thirds of the taxable property of the county was presented to the court, favoring the establishment of a free ferry. This matter had not been acted upon' at the time of our going to press. The liberal premiums offered for county exhibits at the Oregon State Fair this year will afford every eounty in the state an opportunity to exhibit her resources. There is no question about the great num ber of homeseekers coming to the state this year, and the State Fair will afford them an excellent oppor tunity to judge tor themselves of our resources. For this reason alone every eonnty that makes any pretension to general agriculture should make a good showing. The premiums offered on eounty ex hibits is $1,000, divided into five parts as follows: First premium, $300; second premium, $250; third premium, $200: foutth premium, $150; fifth premium, $100. The bouthern Pacinc Company hauls all exhibits to and from the fair free of charge, and a very liberal rate is made on all other lines in the eastern portion of the state.

Graham & Wells. - Not War; but Business. If farmers continue to bring egg to Corvallis in anything like the quantity they did last Satur. day, they wont have one to bless themselves with Easter morning. Last Saturday 2,330 dozen 27,960 eggs passed into the hands of Corvallis. merchants. Every dozen of these eggs brought 15 'cents and as a result the farmers went home with $349.50. They did not take this amount of money out of Corvallis, how ever. That isn't what they came ta town for. After they completed their shopping, it is highly probable that they carried away $500 worth of merchan dise, groceries, etc., leaving in exchange eggs and other produce, for a good part of which Port land merchants will in due time send a money equivalent to Corvallis. The observing will understand why our merchants are paying 15 cents a dozen for eggs when other places are offering but 12 x2 cents. It's business. It is not cut throat competition; not war j but a business proposition. They believe that the farmer is en titled to 15 cents for his eggs; they are able to pay it and make money in the long run. There is wisdom in their course. The fact that the merchants are pay ing 15 cents per dozen for eggs, has been so widely advertised that farmers are attracted here from Peoria, Junction, Harris burg, Halsey, and numerous places in Linn, Lane, Polk and Lincoln counties, to do their trading, who, heretofore, have never traded in Corvallis. Let us repeat again: Corvallis mer chants are friends of the farmer; not enemies of one another. ' Oui, Oul, Monsieur. When a man is the vietim of a ciroumstance that has a tendency to blight his life for a time, he is about the last person on earth to relate his experience. A gen tleman who visited the Paris ex position last year recently told of an amusing experience he had in "Gay Paree." While passing along the street one day he con cluded that, he had better get shaved. Accordingly' he en tered the first barber shop he came to and took a chair. While arranging the prelimi naries for ''skinning" the barber harangued our fellow-townsman with a lot of unintelligible "gib berish." Oar citizen, not car ing to admit that he did not un derstand French, vigorously re sponded "oui, oui, monsieur," when the barber concluded his remarks. The barber then touched a call-bell and in a mo ment a number of singing girls appeared on the scene. During the time he was getting shaved he was. entertained with music, both vocal and instrumental. Paris stock went up in the esti mation of the Corvallfsite, and he made up his mind that a Parasian barber was the "real thing.',' The barber was very polite in his attentions and our friends heart warmed up con siderable, so much, in fact, that when he got ready to leave the shop he handed the : tonsorial artist a franc (20 cents), despite tee tact that tae price of shaving was only about 10 cents. Then the barber waxed violent and demanded 20 francs. Our towns man understood just French enough to know that this was .. Protest on hi9 part was in vain and he paid the bill rather than take a chance On his anat omy. To this day he holds Parasian barbers and their meth ods in contempt. Citizens' League Meeting. The regular monthly meeting of the citizens' league oceurred at the court house Monday evening. Many members were present and much enthusiasm prevailed. The committee who have charge1 of the preparation of the pamphlet advertising Benton county, re ported progress. E. E. Wilson, who. was in structed at a former meeting to continue correspondence with parties desiring to establish a one- set woolen mill here, read a letter from these parties stating that they would visit Corvallis in the near future. . The committee appointed to confer with the county court relative to the settlement of the boundary line between Benton and Lane counties, reported that an understanding had been reached between the courts of these counties and the matter was on the eve of a solution. E. R. Lake, E. E. Wilsonand W. H. Curran were appointed to co-operate with the county court in preparing an exhibit at the state fair. Last year- Benton county took third place and a prize of $50. Five premiums will be offered this year: $300 for first; $250 for second; $200 for third; $150 for fourth and $100 for fifth. Mrs. Mary Allphin. The death of Mrs. Mary AU phin occured at 10 a. m. Wednes day, April 3rd, igor, at the resi denca of her daughter, Mrs. W. F. Gray, in this city. The fun eral services were held at the family residence at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon, and were contacted by Elder Denham, ef Portland. The remains were laid te rest in the Odd Fellows' cemetery. Deceased was born iri Platte Bounty, Mo., Febcuary 17, 1833, and came to Oregon in 1846 fifty-five years ago. She was one of the early pioneers of Ore gon and was first located in the Waldo Hills, Marion county, Oregon. There are few pioneers tiis left among ss and seen they will all . ha'ye passed to their Father.

We recently noticed in an Oregon newspaper a statement that prominent farmers of Clack amas county have criticised Dr. Withycombe's objections to the summer-fallow system whieh prevails in the Willamette Val ley. An examination of the oriticisms offered shows that they were the resnlt of not know ing the position taken by Dr. Withycombe. If these farmers would arrange for institutes in the neighborhoods in whioh they live, and get Dr. Withycombe to come and have a friendly dis cussion on the question with them, they would find that he does not dispute the claims they make for the summer-fallow system, bat points ont the ulti mate weakness of tha system, and advises the adoption of a system which will proye at least eqnally as effective in Imme diate results upon the yield of grain crops and at the same time keep up the supply of humus in the soil and maintain permanent ly its productiveness. The bare sommer-fallow acts npon the land as a stimulant. It increases the yield of the following crop, but it does so at a great sacrifice of the elements of fertility in the soil. Rural Northwest.
