A growing attendance marked the

Charles Baker and Russell Skallerud
went over to Big Elk Sunday on a fish

eaten while away. . It rained about all
the time and they had to camp under
the trees, much to their discomfort.
F. G.; Davis returned last night from
a visit to his. hop ranch at Silverton.
He was accompanied home by his niece,
Miss Lora Ames, of Silverton, who will
make an extended visit here. Mr. Davis
reports the rain of the past week as
having been of inestimable value to the
growing crops, especially grain and
hops, and that these two crops were
looking exceptionally fine throughout
the valley. "
, The Endeavorers of the United Evan

day evening at the beautiful home of

time was had under the direction of the
social committee, who had everything
well planned. The refreshments were
delicious and bountiful. , There were
about 60 present, who voted hearty
thanks tot the social committee and
Mr. and Mrs. Heckart for the pleasant
time. . . " ...
An interesting feature of the surprise
party at the J. F. Yates' home on Sat
urday evening was the presentation by'
tha co-laborers in the Benton county
abstract office, of a new baby buggy
which was deemed essentially necessary
for the care and keeping of the first
young hopeful at the Roy Yates' home.
It is very neat and tasty, strong and
durable and will last for many years.
It was certainly an act of great kind
ness and consideration and was received
by Roy .with that sense of joy and pride
known only to the parent wtio is called
upon to meet the cares and responsibil
ities of married life for the first time.

LIGHT WITHOUT HEAT
The Puzzle of the Tiny Firefly
; ; and the Mighty Comet.
Eafiies Klatcbes Heed
Their method of carrying them is
responsible for the fact. Pinned to
the waist or hanging on a chain the
delicate mechanism is easily disar
ranged. We pay special attention
to ladies' watches, and when re
paired by us you will find that they
keep in order longer.
EACH HOLDS THE SECRET.
It Is a Mystery to Science, and the Man
Who Is Able to Penetrate That Mys
tery Will Be In a Position to Revo
lutionize' This .Planet of Ours.
This is not an Aesop fable, although
It has a moral. ;
There are two things in whose pres
ence science stands wondering' and
abashed the little glowworm (or the
yet tinier firefly and the mighty comet i
arching the sky with its glimmering
train.. Each of them holds the same
secret how to make light without
heat. The man who gets that secret
will revolutionize the planet.
The late president of the Royal As
tronomical Society of Great Britain
referred to the value of the comet's
secret in his retiring address. He
thought that we do not sufficiently ap
preciate the wondrous spectacle of a
comet's tail. It. shows us hundreds of
billions of cubic miles of space simul
taneously glowing "with luminosity
whose origin is a mystery. .
It is a gigantic experiment in a
branch of physics of which we as yet
know very .-little. The conjet is Im
mersed in what we may well regard
as a vacuum; at least it is a far more
perfect vacuum than we can produce.
Yet the persistent glow of the comet's
tail shows that there no real vacuum
there, but a vast quantity of extreme
ly attenuated matter which no doubt
Is the cause of the luminosity.
We ought, Professor Newall thinks,
to awake to the importance of this
hint. "Who knows," he says, "whethr
er, if we could discover -a method of
disrupting gases and vapors in ultra
vacuous spaces artificially maintained
on earth, we should not have a meth
od of artificial illumination as econom
ical as that of the glowworm and as
brilliant as is needed for our nocturnal
This thing may really be within our
reach, . although at the present , time
we cannot even suggest to ourselves
exactly how it. Is to be attained, put
the tendency of recent investigation is
in that direction. As Sir John Her
schel said of another discovery which
was just at the door. "We can feel it
trembling along the farreaching line
of our analysis." , t
There, are not a few men, who are
regarded by their harder headed scien
tific brethren as "dreamers," who pic
ture to themselves a fast coming time
when we shall not only obtain light at
as cheap a rate as the firefly has it,
but when we shall have tapped the ex
haustless stores of energy that sleep
all around us in nature. "
We are like one in a dream sus
pended in the midst of a vast work
shop .crowded with- multitudinous ma
chines, all whirling and fluttering in
a storm of energies, but which, he can
neither control nor understand. Xf
we could see these things they might
terrify us, as the dreamer is terrified
by the whirring belts and spinning
wheels of his. vision, seeming to grasp
at his life. ,
If the scientific Investigator needs
to estahlish a raison d'etre in the eyes
of the public, which cannot follow
either his processes or his results, he
has only to point -to the fact that the
greatest practical discoveries of mod
ern times have come out of the labora
tories from things as incomprehensible
to the unitiated as, so much magic. It
Is a well known fact that the growing
might ,of, Germany springs from her
devotion to "pure research." :
Referring again to the pregnant hint
of the comet, Professor Newall -is
clearly right in saying, "Here is
theme that should stir up the most
commercial mind in the support of as
tronomy." Garrett P. Serviss in New
York" American; "
