Officers of the state board of
forestry, through Secretary E. P.
Sheldon, of Portland, urge the
people of the" state to observe
the following rules:
Don't toss away burning 'obac-
co or matches.
Don't make a campfire in
leaves, rotten wood or against
logs, where it may spread or you
can't be sure it is put out.
Always clear all inflammable

come a big one if let alone.
Extraordinary industrial acti
vity, coupled with the purpose
and spirit of the new develop
ment, is reported from all parts
of Oregon. The awakening has
been slow; but it is here at last.
Everyone notes the effects of the
new life throughout the state
savs the Oregonian.
The towns and cities ate tak
ing pride in tneir appearance
in the improvement ' of their
streets, in better architecture
for the new buildings, and in
substitution for buildings of old
form and construction, new
modern, tasteful and commod
ious plans. It is worth not
little to see such towns as Salem
and Eugene, Baker City and La
Grande at this day, and compare
them with the remembered ap
pearance of former tims.
Corresponding improvement
is noted in the agricultural dis
tricts. Irrigation is beginning
many a fertile district in the
semi-arid parts of the state.
In other parts clearing of new
tracts for cultivation is in pro
gress, and better farming gener-,
ally. Advantages of under-drain-
age are becoming better known.
The study of soils brings its
contribution to results. Irn
provemeut of livestock is becom-
Fruit-growing is
settling into a scientific system.
The timber of Oregon, properly
conserved, will forever be a great
resource, and transformation of
water power into electric power
will give the state benefits equal
to the labor of millions of hands.
The main drawback now is
the slowness of railroad exten
sion. In these times no consid
erable population will go far be
yond the reach of , railroad ser
vice, and very little real develop
ment can come to unoccupied
districts till railroads help to op
en the way. Oregon has a right
to be insistent that the great
railway combination that almost
wholly controls its territory shall
continue its activity and open
new sections of the state. We
shall get the Tillamook road
within a year, but we want the
Coos Bay road, and, above all, a
road into and through Middle
Oregon. , '
The difference between the
Domestic Science and art at OAC
and the superficial training of
the accepted finishing schools
for voung ladies cannot be better
illustrated than by the following
description of the latter in June
iorcea to smne. iot oniy at
the institutional receptions, but
at meals, at play and even in the
classroom, she is watched by a
competent critic of social behav
ior, and she succeeds, though
he falls behind in her real
studies, so long as she does not
commit the crime of a failure to
"make good" socially.
"You observe that there may
well be a broad chasm between
what is taught and what is learn
ed. One student of my acquain
tance has, after a three years'
course, managed to choke down
enough, French to translate, if
there's a dictionary handy, the
ordinary Gallic phrases encount
ered in a popular novel : she
knows what a menu is trying to
say, though, of course, neither
she nor anybody else can trans-
ate that verbatim. If she would
take time to complete it but
she never takes time to complete
anything she might be able to
make a fair copy of a Charles
Dana Gibson line drawing. She
can recite certain chapters of the
Bible by heart, but knows about
as much concerning them as the j
average actor knows about the !
lines of his part. And as for
literature, shejhas acquired the
exact date of every great English
writer,s birth and death without
having any conception of what
any of them wrote, and without
swerving one hair's breadth
from her allegiance to the con
temporary marshmallow school
of fiction.
"One mother was rapurously
descanting to me upon her daugh

"But what," I essayed, "are
her intellectual pursuits?'
Madam blinked. "Her intel
lectual pursuits?" she echoed.

"Still some things the girl has
gained. The last time she "was

used to make mud pies together,
and, later, she chewed the spit

used to call a bureau, and knows
the private history and matri

the stage."
Women Who Are Envied.
Those attractive women who are love
ly in face, form and temner are the
envy of many who might be like them,

eruptions and a wretched complexion.
For all such, Electric Bitters work won

health and beauty to them. 50c at all
