We have tOyg0,OOO,QPO of
hr1e, occupying over three
lriilfi6n square miles of territory
and they own $120,000,000,000
of wealth. On farms valued at
$25,000,000,000 we produce an
nually agricultural products
valued at $8,000,000,000. It is
nothing that we produce an
nually 2,500,000,000 bushels of
corn and 11,000,000 bales of
cotton, if there is no demand
for the corn and cotton and if
the demand is not at a fair re
turn. ' But we have the market.
Our 5,500.000 of people who
produce $15,000,000,000 of
manufactured products annually,
and receive in wages $230,000,
000, make the market. These
figures apply only to finished
product.' We get the products
of the cosumer by 250,000 miles
of railroad, which is three times
, the railroad . mileage of Great
Britain, France and Germany
combined. When side tracks
are taken into account, we have
more railroad mileage .V than all
the rest of the world. ? On these
railroads we have 100,000 : en
gmes, carrying millions " of cars
and hauling 2,000,000,000 tons
of, freight. . This practically
equals all the tonage carried by
all the railroads and all the ships
of all the rest of the world.
This monstrous task is perform
edby 5,500,000 of employes who
are yearly paid, . $2,300,000,000,
and this, vast business' is con
ducted by $150,000,000,000 of
bank clearance. Doweprqsper?
Only two decades ago we were
second to Great Britain in the
output of iron '.' and , steel. To
day our output equals all the
rest of the world. We live wel
and have happy homes, filled
with; comforts and luxuries
Yet we are a saving , " people:
We have in savings banks $3,
500,000,000, in national banks
4,500,000,-000 and in state banks
"5,000,000,000-in all, $13,000,
000,000. The per capital - of
money in the . country is larger
than in any other save one,
France, and amounts to $35 for
.each of our 80,000,000 people.
The business of . the country
amounts to over $3,000,000,000
annually. How do we do such
a monstrous business which is
also profitable? It is because we
have confidence on ourselves and
the other nations of the globe
have confidence in us. Leslie's

Projects are being developed
for the irrigation of between 25,
000 and 30,000 acres of agricul
tural land' in Lane County.
Farmers residing on the west
side of the Willamette River, be
tween Eugeng -and Junction
City, propose by banding to

and zU,UUO acres while owners;
of land surrounding Springfield

"The -farmers of Lane
County are thoroughly awakened
to the possibilities of irrigation, "
said A. P. . Stover, who has
charge of the irrigation and
drainage investigations , in West
ern Oregon for the United
States Department of Agricul
ture, on his return last night
from Eugene. "It is true
there, is a large ; acreage in
Western Oregon ". which ; never
will have to be. irrigated to in-,
sure raising good crops but ir
rigation is essential to the suc
cessful cultivation of much of
the prairie land, the' fertility of
which has been largely exhaust
ed by the raising of wheat for
many consecutive years. . " '
: Western Oregon Converted. .
i "Experience has taught : the
farmers 1 of .. Western - Oregon
that they cannot . raise .; grain
crops successfully, especially in
competition with - the farmers
of Eastern Oregon. They, are
becomming converted to the
idea of diversified farming- to
which their section of the state
is particularly adapted. It is up
to them to turn their attention
to raising crops that will make
milk and produce hogs and
cattle for the large packing
plant . which is being established
is Portland and which will offer
an unfailing market for stock
from the farm. But irrigation
will be required to bring these

' Water for irrigation purposes
in the Willamatte Valley, how
ever, cannot be diverted from
the Willamette or its tributaries
during the summer for the rea
son that at that season of the
year their supply is required ex
clusively for manufacturing pur
poses at Oregon City. This wi 1
make it necessary for the Lane
irrigationists to depend largely
on a storage supply. This is of
fered by Waldo Lake, on the
north fork of the Willamette. An
adequate supply of water can be
diverted from this lake into the
Willamette and conveyed to the
canal gates where it "can be turn
ed into the ditches for distribu
tion over the, proposed irrigated.!
district. A further source of
supply is provided by another
small lake rifear. the headwaters
of "the McKenzie river, : The
charge for this water for irrigat
ing purposes, according to the
promoters of the two projects,
will not exceed $30 an acre;for a
continuous right This is cheaper
than the charge made by the
Government for water through
any of its projects in this state.
The cost to consumers on the
Government projects ranges from
about $32 on the Klamath canal
to about $65 on the Umatilla project.'

SILVERTON GETS A PARK.
It is strange that our need of a
park does not appeal to people
here as a like need appeals to the
people of other towns and cities.
Nine out of every ten towns have
parks given them by some able
citizen, but Silverton people are
cLing even better; they are giving
cash for maintenance. An arti

i An act which proved one of the most popular features ever introduced at Ye Liberty, Salem's cozy 15-cent theater was
Prof. Home's troupe of educated dogs and monkeys, which appeared at every performance last week. The clever animals at
tracted a great deal of attention each day while on exhibition in front of the theater. The dogs sit in a row on chairs and be
have in as decorous a manner as human beings. - When the professor takes a walk the dogs, accompany him, one of them carry
ing a banner, and two more being ridden by the monkeys, jockey fashion, and at all times the animals obey every signal of their
trainer with apromptness that is remarkable. The act itself is noteworthy. The dogs in character costumes do almost every
thing except talk. One canine acts as a waiter and waits upon two others. "Prince," the Tchampion bag-punching dog, always
brings applause, as does "Spike," the "United States dog." One of the prettiest features is the "Flower Vase Act," in which
one of the dogs emerges when the vase opens and executes a serpentine -dance. -Another favorite is "Beauty, the Belle of
Salem." This act must be seen to be appreciated. For the remainder of the week Prof. Home will introduce "Violet," the
only poising pliastique dog in the world. The troupe has just completed a successful tour of California, and is now en route to
Europe via Chicago and New York. - - -
