Waters Are Offered
The United States department of
agriculture, through the bureau of
chemistry, has issued the following
warning to the public in regard to the
so-railed radioactive mineral waters
offered for sale in bottles:
There are indications of the begin
ning of an attempt to perpetrate a
great fraud on the American people
through advertising certain mineral
waters as po-.LSt.ing radioactivity.
The waters, in some cases, are taken
from springs ;the waters of which as
they come from the ground do possess
certain radioactive properties. Ex
amination of many of these waters by
the department's specialists indicates
that whatever radioactivity they pos
sess at the spring is due almost entire
ly to radium emanation rather than to
the presence in the water of any sub
stance possessing radioactivity. These
emanations in the form o? gas quickly
disappear from the water and as a re
sult, after the water has been bottled
a short time, it will possess practical
ly no radioactivity. The belief long
held by many people that some miner
al waters used at the springs are more
effective than when bottled has been
explained by some authorities on the
ground that the beneficial elTect of
these waters is due to radioactivity.
As the radioactivity disappears soon
after the water is taken from the
spring, any effect due to the radioac
tivity must be lost in a short time. If
the radioactivity of a water in a
spring is 100, four days after bottling
it will be only 60, and 12 days after
bottling 10. In a month it will be
practically r.othing compared with the
original radioactivity of the water at
the spring. The public, therefore, is
warned to regard with suspicion any
water advertised as possessing radio
activity. As far as the government's
specialists have been able to ascertain,
no bottled water, no matter how radio
active it may have been at the spring,
retains this radioactivity for any
length of time.

College Giant IJreaks
Record for Strength
Philadelphia MikeDorizas, a Greek
athlete who is t sophomore at the Un
iversity of Pennsylvania, is the
strongest man the college world has
ever known and his record made in the
test room et Franklin Field exceeds
by 500 points that of the strongest
man in any other college.
Dorizas speaks four languages
fluently; he understands three others
fairly well and can make his way in
two others. He weighs 250 pounds
and is as lithe as a panther. His
strength record, that has not been ap
proached by any other rival, is: Age,
24 years; total strength test, 1774,
world's record; legs, 680 kilograms;

Firing Squads Kill
More Than Hattle
El Paso, Tex. One hundred and
eighty-four wounded men are in the
Juarez hospitals as a result of the un-
successful federal attack upon Juarez.
I Pancho Villa is also back in Juarez,
j with six thousand rebel troops. Villa
' captured several federal field pieces
and several cars. This is apparent to
i anyone who saw his army go out the
j other day and then come back. Horses
'dragged back 15 field pieces, five were
i on the train that brought the rebel
I leader himself and five more were
j brought in on the train that Villa left
on the field in charge of the burial
squad,. Villa had only nine guns
; when he went out.
I Villa said that he captured 500 fed
j erals. He brought fewer than 200 to
Juarez. He admits executing some of
them. Apparently the greatest num-
ber of dead as a result of the fighting
j are those who faced the firing squad.
40-Foot Channel it Aim.
Washigtonn, D. C. Senator Lane
is preparing to introduce a resolution
directing the army engineers to pre
pare plans and estimates for a project
looking to the construction of a 40
foot channel in the Willamette and
Columbia rivers from Portland to the
sea. As a part of this plan the en
gineers will be requested to plan for a
series of revetments which, confining
the channel, will at the same time
hold in check material dredged from
the channel and deposited behind the

Oregon Agricultural College, Cor
vallis The winter short course of the
Oregon Agricultural college holds its
eighteenth annual session from Jan
uary 5 to 31, 1914. Over dozen
courses of study will be offered.
While the greater number of courses
will be in agriculture, as usual, there
will be courses in domestic science and
art, in economics, commercial meth
ods, both rural and metropolitan, and
in such engineering work as can be
adapted to short course purposes car
pentry, blacksmithing and road con
struction. The winter short courses are de
signed to give practical and scientific
instruction to those farmers, or stu
dents of farming, who cannot devote
their time to a full college course, but
who aspire to keep abreast of the best
thought and practice in the profession.
The courses are based on the newest
developments in agricultural science;
they are distinctly practical, and are
within the comprehension of all
thoughtful people. They are offered
in midwinter in order to be of service
to the largest number of actual farm
erspractical, busy people who find
time at this season, if ever, to take
stock of their intellectual capital as
well as of their good and chattels.
Can 1 afford it? This is the first
question we ask ourselves as we con
template any enterprise outside the
routine of our settled tasks. Can 1
afford it for myself, for my boy, for
my wife, or for my daughter? Re
turns this year are small, we say; the
farm has't yielded the profit it ought
to yield. Another season, perhaps .
Our neighbor goes from year to
year, to be sure, but he is prosperous.
So? Perhaps there's a reason for
that. Perhaps, after all, there's
economy in going, not staying. Per
haps we need ideas, confidence, en-
Oregon Hotels Show
Best Sanitary Conditions
The latest bulletin published by
Commissioner Mickle, of the Oregon
Dairy and Food commission, shows
unsatisfactory sanitary conditions in
many of the hotels, restaurants, mar
kets, slaughter-houses, bakeries and
candy factories which - were visited by
the inspectors of the commission out
side of Portland.
The commissioner's report shows
that 87 hotels and restaurants were
visited in various towns throughout
the state, the average score of which
was 63 points; 77 markets and slaughter-houses
were visited, with an aver-
Farmers Gravel Roads
At Individual Expense
Monmouth As a result of move
ments by Commercial clubs of the
county ai d inhabitants of rural dis
tricts for better roads, many miles of
public highways in Polk county are
ready for winter use by automobiles.
United efforts by everyone interested
have resulted in tho present high
standard. Thousands of wagon loads
of yellow "slough gravel" were hauled
in the Dallas, Independence, Mon
mouth ar.d Kirkreall districts, anil it
is believed that this was the best
move made. Continual traffic for
nearly two years has put the Dads in
a condition unsurpassed by any in the
This material la very different from
that gotten from the river beds, con
taining much cement.
One of the leading' factors in the
movement for better roads has been
the automobile owner, who in many
cases in the farming district has
graveled and graded roads from his
place to the place he travels most fre
quently. In this way expense which
would have gone to the county, or not
have existed, has been borne by indi
viduals. Some of the roads so im
proved by the co-operation of farmers
with the county are: Ituena Vista to
Airlie; Independence to Salem, Buena
Vista and Monmouth; Monmouth to
Rickreall, Huena Vista, Airlie, Falls
City, Dallas; Kickreall to Salem, Dal
las; Dallas to Perrydale, Falls City.
During July, this summer, automo
bile traffic is believed to have been
the heaviest ever known in the coun
try. Tourists from many sections of
the state were attracted by Polk coun
ty's smooth, wide and hard roads.
The roads from Dallas to Salem
through Kickreall and from Indepen
dence to Salem are said to be the two
best highways in tho county.
Pioneers of '50s Imitated.
Paker Like the pioneers of the
early '50s, T. P. Towle, of Cold
Springs, S. I)., crossti the plains and
mountains with two "prairie schoon
ers," brought his wife and grandchild
with him, and came to Oregon to
wrest a living from the Maker valley.
The trip, which began in June this
year, was halted temporarily when
Mr. Towle's wagons and eight horses
reached Vale. There Mrs. Towle came
on to Baker by train to visit her uncle,
and, taken with the prospects of the
country, she sent for her husband.
Oakland Children Send Turkey.

the cost of this valuable outing, essen
