LENTS SEWER CONTRACT LET
Charley Shea Will Start Work Im
The contract for the construction
of the Lenta trunk sewer was awarded
b> the city council Wednesday to J.
F. Shea, the lowest bidder on the huge
project. The contract was swwrded
on the basis of progress payments for
»893,110.10, or 88379.90 below the city
engineer’s estimate. The interest that
will accrue to the contractor on the
progress payments, should it take the
full 18 months to complete the proj
ect, will amount to approximately
»29,000 additional, which is 81399.80
less than the lowest bid without
In addition to his regular bond
required on all public work, Mr.
Shea has agreed to furnish an addi
tional bond of 815,000 as a guarantee
that the interest on progress pay
ments will not exeeed the sum tabu
lated for the 18-month period.
This project is the L-west sewer
job that has ever been let by the
City of Portland. It will begin nt
East Ninety-second street and con
tinue to Sellwood, where it will enter
a tunnel and continue to the Willam
This sewer will connect with the
Foster-Road sewer and give both
drainage and sewage facilities to the
I-ents and Mount Seat: districts.
Mayor Baker and City Engineer
I.aurgaard held a conference with Mr.
Shea and learned that a large force
of men would be kept busy through
out the winter season if the prelimi
nary work could be done before the
winter rains begin.
For that reason City Commissioner
Barbur was requested to file hia re
port in time for action by the city
The report was not completed for
the regular morning session so that
an adjourned session was held, at
which time the report awarding the
contract to Shea was adopted.
Work to Be Rushed
Charles A. Shea, general manager
of the J. F. Shea company, stated
last night that he would have one
machine working within a few days,
and that within three weeks he would
have three large digging machines
and a large force of men at work.
"I will have just time enough to
do the preliminary work and get the
materials necessary on the job to in
sure an all-winter’s run,” said Mr.
Shea. “I found it practical to work
during the winter on the Foster Road
sewer and I do not anticipate that
I shall have less than 200 or 300 men
at work during the entire winter.”
The Fly’s Tongue
The so-called tongue of the fly is
not truly a tongue, but a tube with
an expanded end, which the scientists
term a “ligula.” Through thia ligula
the fly obtains its nourishment. The
fly does not need to get down to its
food, but draws it upward by means
of this trunk or proboacis. Nature
recognized the fact that the insect
had many enemies and that it must
therefore take up in the shortest pos
sible time the food it might- discover.
For that purpose the tongue is fitted
at its free end with a curious pad
like modification of the ordinary
tracheal structure, which has puzzled
some of those who have studied its
Much discussion has arisen in re
gard to the reason for this peculiar
formation of the fly’s tongue, but it
appears to be generally conceded by
entomologists that nature has pro
vided these singular ramifications of
the instrument to assist in quickly
taking up the drop of sweet or other
fluid material. These narrow strips
of horny substance that form the
proboscis are curved, and are united
to one another by a membrane that
forms a tube split along the border
of the tongue whera it comes in con
tact with the food.
KEEP ON KEEPING ON
If boys should get discouraged
At lessons and at work,
And say, “There’s no use trying,”
And all hard tasks should shirk.
And keep on shirking, shirking,
Till the boy becomes a man,
I wonder what the wbrld would do
To carry out this plan.
The coward in the conflict
Gives up at first defeat;
If once repulsed, his courage
Lies shattered at his feet.
The brave heart wins the battle
Because, through Jlyck and thin.
He’ll not give up as conquered—
He fights, and fights to win.
So boys, don’t get disheartened
Because at first you fail;
If you but keep on trying,
At last you will prevail,
Be stubborn against failure,
Try, try and try again;
The boys who had to strugle,
Have made the world's best men.
