ROAD TO WALLOWA
Word that reaches na from
railroad ' eenlera inspires a
reasonable hope that it will not
be long until a railroad will be
built from Elgin to Wallowa
county. Wallowa is a large
county with tens of thousands
of acres of mos t fertile soil, and
ft healthful and genial clime.
The extension of the Elgin rail
road into it means the eatabliah
. - -
homes, school ' houses ,' end
churches. In 1900 the U S
census report gate ' Wallowa
county a land surface of 2,784
square miles and a population of
5,538 a small fraction over two
persons to the sqnare , mile.
When Wallowa . county is as
thickly settled as Pike county
Mo., 411, to the squire mile, it
will have 115,641 people. These
figures are given to show the
possibilities of Wallowa county
and to emphasise the import
ance of the news we are giving
out that a railroad will soon un
lock its vast resources. -There
can be no doubt but Wallowa
county when it has railroad
connection with the rest of the
civilised world, will sustain iu
comfort more people than Pike
COPPER AND HEALTH
The receut use of copper sul
phate Jor the disinfection of re
servoirs and the destruction of
algae and uoxious germs in wat
er has led to much discussion of
the old idea that copper is dan
gerous to health. Dr George T
Moore of the Department of
Agriculture maintains that a
change has come over scientific
opinion on this subjeot. Strange
as t may seem, he says, there is
not an authentic case of copper
poisoning on record, either in
this country or abroad, and he
adds that tozicologists and phy
siologists who have sufficiently
studied the subject agree that
copper, in the amount used for
purification of water, it harm
less. On accouut of the many
' defects in the practical use of
filtration plants, Doctor Moore
regards purification of water
supplies by copper as a prefer
able method, or at least as a
safe auxiliary. Youths Companion,

Of all the books and booklets

tion commemorative of Capts.
Lewis and Clark s joarney .. from
the then Western frontier to the
Pacific Ocean, has called forth
the most interesting one . that
we have read, it is a litUe book
let written by Amy Jane Jtfa-
quire, entitled "The Indian
Girl who led them" (8acajawea
the Bird tVpman)
The booklet of 87 pages gives
a realistic picture, not only of
the topagraphy the wild onset
tied west as it looked a hundred
years ago, but of the wild people
and animals that roamed over it
and the labor and difficulties in
finding a way through it. The
important part which Sacajawea
acted in this long march is told
in a most pleasing manner. 1 - '
The simple history of this
Indian woman, as told bv tbe
author, gives the ' clearest pic
ture of real Indian homelife that
has l.eeo the' fortuie the
writer hereof to have ever read.

The greatest clearing sale of the year. Because of the unusual amount of
merchdie to clealrthis sale will largely exceed all our previous July
Clearing Sal in volume, variety of merchandise, and in , price reductions.
All hrnken lines, odd lots, and those assortments of .regular merchandise
Which are larger than we wish, have been given low price marks that will
force quick selling. The sale sheets will show enormous losses, but we
count fosses as inevitable during these clearing sales-part of the business.
