THE HUMAN SKIN.
The human, skin Is the most won
derful, most beautiful fabric In the
world, and we don't half appreciate
its marvelounness. Flexible as silk,
resistant as steel, tinted like the petal
of a flower, tough as leather, and al-
non-conductor of heat and electrical
currents known. Its vitality Is uncon
querable, it power of repair almost
unlimited. With a vascular mesh cap
able of containing half the blood of
the body, It can adjust ltnelf to almost
any .extreme oft temperature. : With
nearly three million of flushing sweat
glands, It Is absolutely 'lf-clean1nK
No contamination of any sort can cling
to It for lottg. becaime Its surface 1
constantly changing by the dying of
the flattened superficial cells and their
falling off In'dally showers. Shut an
arm or a leg In a plaster of pari cast,
as In a' fracture, for instance; let It
remain In position for three weeks,
then take off the cant,' and you will
find nearly ft handful! of human bran
which has accumulated In Its Interior.
This branny powder Is composed of
thoiiFonds of almost Invisible delicate
epithelial scales, which, under normal
conditions, are continually belnpr shed
and rubbed from the surface of the
body, carrying with them all the Im
purities that" may be nttached to them.
WOMEN NOT TO BLAME.
A lady Informed The Observer that
the lailles were not to blame for wear
ing their hnM In church. The rcnuon
thoyoMil not, was very largely because
they were not asked. Continuing, the
lady said that no woman desired to
npie:nr ciiricpleuons and under pres
ent conditions a Inilv appearing In
church would be. but If It was the
custom of the church to have Indies
, remove thilr millinery there would b"
no objections. Here Is the .problem !
for cither the pastor or the official'
board to consider. If nil order Is oil
that Is ivjvlril, some one Is doing
Uh public and the church an Injury
In not Issuing the proclamation.
Beginning todny the homeseekers'
rates from the oast to the Pacific
coast begin and will be effective for
0 days. We will know within o few
days whether or not this rush to the
land of the setting sun will be up to
rhe average, or will eXiel former rate
periods. Some nro of the opinion thai
the hard limes In the east will drive
many west. Others are of the opinion
that It will retard Immigration. W
will soon know. The railroad com
panies lire reported as predicting and
have prepared to handle great num
bers of people. They generally know
what they are doing.
The Irrigation projct Is one of the
live topics of conversation among our
land owners. A number have volun
tarily come to town and pluced their
names on the list for acreage. With
in the next few weeks the busy har
vest season will be over and then the
real work of securing the JO.nftO acres
will begin. This should bo Hoed

Ject on the coast.

Interest taken to come out to th'

Th Roy Oliver threshing machine,
fresh from the factory and in service
two weeks, Is burning this afternoon
and will be a complete loss. It was of
the "Red River Special" make, one
of the most costly patterns on the
market. Information as to how the
fire started cannot be procured at this
hour, but telephone messages say
there will be but little loss of grain.
The machine was sitting on a place
opposite the Herman Vehrs ranch
when the fire started late this after
noon. The fire Is burning Itself out

a Baker athlete today. "Of course we

difference. Our defense is that the
Athletes' pitcher went to the bad In

without so much as a broken oar. All
the wonder Is that those lads from
Perry did not skin us up worse than
they did," related one of the Baker
players to the Baker Herald. That
the Athletes are not discburaged is
best illustrated by the fact that they
will meet Perry fh this city next Sun
day and Monday, when each team will
be loaded for big game.
