THE IMPERIAL WEST.
0. A. G.
Jienry tday was an adept m
picturing the future of the gold
en West in glowing words. To
him the "West" meant Ohio, Id
iana, Illinois and Kentucky. He
Urged the protection of its indus
tries, the building of roads for
its development, and the encour
agement 01 its people m every,
way. Visitors from the east, at
tracted to the central states by
the roseate descriptions of such
leaders, went back home to sing
the praises of the new land be
yond the mountains.
ine same sort or. process is
witnessed now. Visitors to the
"West" are returning from Ore
gon, Washington, Idaho, Utah
and other .rommou-wealths, tell- j
ing of the glories they have seen.
Many of them declare their in
tention to join the great army, of
homeseekers who are pressing in
to these new lands of promise.
Their enthusiasm merely reflects
the feeling of those already, set
tled beyond a more distant range
of mountains than that which
formed a barrier for the pioneer
of a century ago.
The expressions which come
irom the Irrigation Congress at
Spokane indicate the belief of
the "West" in itself. It knows
what it wants. It does not hesi
tate to declare its needs. It does
not use a foot rule or a pint cup
in its measurements. Nothing
but a large scale will satisfy it,
as it looks out upon the possibili
ties. It must be confessed that
there is something contagious in
the confidence which every West
ern man feels in the certain fu
ture. As a stimulus to patriotic
pride it cannot be surpassed.
The "West" wants money. It
wants lots of it Specifically, it
'Wants $500,000,000, It will share
part of it with the rest of the
country, but its own projects
will require much of the ' vast
amount. The money is to be di
vided into five equal parts and is
to be used for reclaimation of
arid lands by irrigation, for deep
water ways, for good roads, for
conservation of forest "resources
and for the drainage of swamp
land. $500,000,000 is a great
amount The vision of the Atlantic-coast
citizen would never
teach so far. It is the expectant
"West" which sees " far ahead,
outlines the needs, and looks for
ward with a hopeful spirit in the
direction 5f great accomplishments.
At Salem Tuesday, the distin
guished easterners who spent
Monday night in Corvallis, did
some talking at the dinner pro
vided' by the Salemites. Many
of the speeches were of interest,
all being pleased with what they
had seen on their trip to the
West. Dean Hunt, of the Agri
cultural College of Pennsylvania!
said that he left home on Aug.
2, and had been preparing to
make a speech ever since, al
though he said he reminded him
self of a man who had made
elaborate preparations for a sim
ilar occasion, but having attend
ed an owl "banquet the night pre
viously merely managed to say
several times, "Ladies and
gentlemen," and at last ended:
with the explanation that he had
prepared a speech containing
thoughts known only to God and
himself, and added, "Now only
God knows what they were."
He spoke of the wonderful pos
sibilties still here, although the
people were apparently letting
them go by, just as many men
were seized with "buck fever"
at sight of a deer. He said he
represented a college of 57 years,
growth in a state of nearly seven
million people yet found the Ore
gon Agricultural College outri
valling it. He said that the way

him of the man who ran from a
ghost The ghost caught up and
said, "We have been going some

said, "Yes; and when we get
out of breath we are going some

ODD SURPRISE FOR JUSSERAND
Indians Gave French Ambassador Real
istic Exhibition of Capture.
Information was recently received in
Washington of a -novel Dut tnrimng
surprise which was experienced by
the French ambassador and Mme. Jus-
erand' on their jouruey east from the
They were ambushed, surrounded
and captured, amid the clatter of rifles,
by a band of painted Crow lnaians.
This hospitable surprise exhibition
alarmed the ambassador, as it was his
first experience in meeting an Amer
ican Indian on the western plains.
The capture occurred on the Orow
reservation near Billings, Mont. Both
the French ambassador and Mme. Jus-
serand were anxious to see some real
Indians living in their primitive state,
but neither they nor their western
friends, who planned for their visit to
the Indian reservation, had any idea
that they were to figure in so realistic
a sortie and capture.
A friend of the ambassador tele
graphed from Billings to the reserva
tion to have about a score of Indians
prepare for the . occasion by raising
iheir old time tepees and decking them
selves out in war paint and fighting
cloth;'?. The resmt was that some
'300 or nsr-.re Inuisws gathered for the
affair m:& ' raised about seventy-five
tepees. Ainbnsstidor and Mme. Jus-
serand traveled over -the prairie grass
in automobiles, and when about three
miles from the camp they noted Indian
scouts on a nearby hill. Tney were
much interested in the signals of the
Indians when they saw them approach
Suddenly a long column of gaudily
arrayed Indians with guns mounted
and . at full speed dashed into view
from over the hill. The column swung
around in front of the approaching
automobiles and gradually closed in
on 'the party. As the Indians began
to circle around tbem and draw in
closer and closer, suddenly, without
warning, there was a simultaneous rat
tle of firearms, and the Indians gave
their warwhoops as they continued to
circle in closer and closer on the auto
mobiles, which had now come to a full
The firing continued for several min
utes until the members of (lis party
were thoroughly scared. They were
taken as captives to the camp and con
ducted to the tepee of Chief Plenty
Cows. They were introduced to the
chiefs and headmen of the tribe. A
little later Indian luncheon was served,
and the guests were informed that
their capture was merely evidence of

WORK OF "MISS SANTA CLAUS"
Benefactress of Children Who Commit
ted Suicide In Philadelphia.
Miss : Elizabeth A. Phillips, known
In, PhDadelphia as "Miss Santa
Clans," who recently committed sui
cide, enjoyed a wide, reputation : by,
reason of : her work at Christmas
among poor children. For weeks prior
to Christmas of each year she collect
ed funds which she expended for toys
and clothing for L. the needy. -, On
Christmas eve she visited the homes
of the children in a large automobile.
She was a familiar figure in all Phila
delphia newspaper offices.
Two years -ago, at her request, all
letters written by children and mailed
to Santa . Claus were delivered to her,
and the requests of the children, ' as
far as possible, were compiled with.
Last year, with the object of making
her charitable work national in "scope,
she asked permission of the post
master general to have all letters ad
dressed to Santa Claus, from what
ever source, sent to her to Philadel
phia, but the request was refused.
A store which Miss Phillips recently
opened in the center of Philadelphia
was not a success, and this seemed to
prey Upon her mind.
Pinned to her clothing was a not

some time. I have always tried to do
my best for mankind."
She was the daughter of a well
known merchant of Philadelphia and

Sweet Corn For France.
American sweet corn is now grown
in the department of the Seine in
Paris, . France. In England a feeble
attempt has been made to raise it un
der glass and up against a sunny 'south
facing wall, but that tight little land
is -too humid. In Russia and Rou
mania succulent sweet corn has been
raised with some difficulty. But at
Paris in the department of the Seine
it grows as though it were Indigenous
to the soil. It. has been grown even
on the roof of a house.
