NO. 4 Value of Buttermilk Buttermilk will prolong the hu man life for many years. That assertion has been proved by sev eral of the leading physicians of the world - Pasteur and Mitchne koff of Paris. In the blood are little cells known as leucocytes. Those cells are the scavengers of the body, and in their concave surfaces are able to grasp a germ or a foreign body and force its elimination from the human system. The Imtnsvntrf na fitment Stmlv unAnl. ing, are the home defenders of the body. Under the microscone the home defenders can bo seen flowing along in the blood streams. Sud denly they will stop as though they sensed some near danger. Changing their shape to that of a v.they will penetrate the blood vessel wall and pick up a stray germ, probably a typhoid or one of the many other varieties. When a person wounds the skin and tho blood runs, the home de fenders rush to the nfllictcd part and project themselves into the surface of tho abrasion, prevent ing tho entrance of outside germ life. They give up their lives to attain their object, and tho hard little ridges felt on both sides of a slight wound are the leucocyte so tightly impacted that their lifeless bodies help form scar tissue. As years pass that commendable action of sacrificing themselves so the hu man body may live ceases and tho littlo friends of the body once known as home defenders turn into a lawless clement, ravaging tho body they onco de fended. MetchnikolT and Pasteur found that buttermilk contained nn cle ment which prevented tho leu cocytes from ravaging the body. Experiments proved they woulu eat tho buttermilk in pre ference; to tho human tissues. To Welcome Immigrants An important conference at which the whole Pacific Coast should bo represented, will be that of tho National Conference of Charities & Corrections, to bo held in Seattlo next July. This gathering will lake up tho sub ject of dealing with tho immigra tion to come to the coast upon tho completion of t,he Panama Canal. A heavy flood of Euro paen immigrants will bring a long list of evils in their train unless some intelligent work is done in directing the movement, it is said. Tho aim of tho confer ence Will bo to do away with tho slums that the Atlantic Coast cities have built up and to direct the newcomers to the farms and vacant lands instead of having them congest in tho population centers. The conference will be attended by men of National reputation in philanthropic work.

Ex. Stylish Coats Worn Of all conccivablo shapes, lengths, widths and styles, arc the coats worn now. mil that the coat is an absolute necessity. although one's suit may be rather heavy and wnrm, is n foregone conclusion. In these days of the one-piece dress, that "you Just slip into, and Uro dressed," nothing but the long or three-quarter coat answers the purpose. Most of tho very attractive coats seen in tho best shops or thoso worn by the really smart women, show remarkable simplicity, with the greatest attention apparently given to tho collar anil cuffs. The sleeve, too. comes m for considerable attention, tho one piece, kimona sleeve, and the full length sleeve in most cases, with a rather deep cuff, being the types generally favored. As to the materials empioyea for the mnWinir of theso car- W W w ments, volumes could be said and written. Seldom, if ever before, urna onnli n anlenrliil vnrietv nre. sented.as one is treated to, these days. For every style of coat, there is more than suitable mate rial, each extremely well adapt ed, and lending itself most effec tively to that particular mode. The materials greatly in de mand, both for beauty of tex ture and serviceableness.are two toned diagonals, cheviots, cut velours, fancy veiours,wuoucies, double faced cloths, Scotch and English mixtures and many nov elty woolens, and one can go, on and on, enumerating the favorite . 1 fabrics. .

Jersey, Killed in a Fall Falling from an old turnstile in a path leading from the Linn ton road toward the river near Whitwood Court, Robert Short. 14 years old, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Short, of 902 South Jersey street, shortly after 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon sus tained injuries which caused his death a few minutes later. Tho skull was fractured and tho collar bone dislocated when he fell and rolled down a bank with the heavy wooden turnstile on top of him. The boy was playing on the turnstile with Mabel bargent, 11 years old, a friend of the Short family, when suddenly without warning the little girl jumped off. This movement caused the boy to fall off, and in tin instant the whole apparatus toppled over on top of his body, crushing in the back of his head. Before his parents who were nearby, could reach him, the boy and apparatus started to roll down the bank. After rolling 20 feet, tho boy was caught by the father and rushed forth J ferry, to take them across to St. Johns, where the boy could get medical attention. He died, however, on board tho ferry before it reached the east shore of the river. The Short family and the little Sargent girl had gone across the river to walk in the woods ufter having partaken of their Thanks giving dinner, when the acci dent occurred.

Several visitors from out of town were present, among them Mrs. Tate, Presi dent of the Mother's Congress of Portland, and Mrs. Christmas of University Park. Four dozen chairs havo been received for seating the room for this und other meetings. A committee from the Mothers' club was appointed to meet at tho library and with the help which can be given there in the way of lists and the books them selves to make out a list of sug gested books suitable as Christ mas presents for children. At this time of year tho shops are gay with attractively bound and illustrated gift books and it is not always easy for tho hurried Christmas shopper to ascertain on the moment whether or not anything worth while lies behind tho bright colors.

Big Timber Deals With tho termination of ne gotiations for the transfer of a large tract of timber land in Washington and Tilliamook counties for approximately 85, 000,000 and two other timber deals in process of closing, East ern capital involving a total of $9,000,000 is being invested in Oregon as u direct result of the signal defeat of single tax at the election held last month. In tho deal closed yesterday tho purchaser is the Wilson River Timber Company, incor porated in the State of Delaware, and composed of Portland and Eastern capitalists. The proper ty acquired includes 22,000 acres and consists of a number of sep arate but contiguous tracts form erly held by P. L. Willis, W. F. Stine and J. O. Elrod, of Port land; by the Pacific Coast Timber Company, composed of Mr. Willis, Mr. Stine and the Sherman estate and by R. V. Jones and L. B. Menefco. The nronert.v is on the main line of the proposed United Rail ways extension and about one mile north of the Portland Rail way & Navigation lino completed last year by the Southern Pacific Company, between Hillsboroand Tillamook. It is about -10 miles from Portland on a direct line, and on the north fork of the Wilson River. As the property is on tho west slopo of tho Coast Range its natural outlet is through Tilla mook Bay. However, it would be impracticable to ship it from that point with tho Tillamook channel in its present condition, say thoso interested in the enter prise. As soon as the Tillamook harbor improvements now under wav and nroiected are completed oxtensivo logging and milling operations are likely to follow. Contingent upon the harbor improvements also is the exten sion of tho United Railways to Tillamook and Bay City. It is understood that the new owners of tho timber tract hnve conferred with officials of the United Railways with reference to building the extension, but pending the harbor development, definito steps forcarrying on the railroad work will not be at tempted. J. J. Hill and other officials of tho Hill system frequently as serted that the Tillamook bay lino will be completed as soon as the lumber market shows en couragement and tho Tillamook harbor improvements aro finish ed. The lumber situation, it is admitted, is satisfactory, and tho implication is held out that harbor development nlone is needed to moke tho rail exten sion certain, It is nrolmb 0 that somo of the timber will bo cut and marketed even boforo tho work nt Tilla mook is finished. In that event tho logs will be brought to Port land and milled here. Construc tion of a connecting link from the Harriman line ovor tho sin irle mile soimrating it from the property is entirely feasible. This will be done if immediate development is desired. A valuable consideration in this transaction is tho fact that tho land is of rich productivo ca pabilities and will become ex- collent dairy and agricultural property after it is logged ofL It is tho intention of tho owners to dispose of it for Hub purpose after they have cut tho timber. Final consummation of tho deal, which had been ponding for several months, was delayed on account of tho single tax is sue before tho voters at the No vember eection. When it be came certain that single tax had been defeated tho Eastern men interested in it agreed to invest. It is asserted that every acre of the land is covered with Doug las fir of the highest quality, but the total number of feet of tim her involved has not been deter mined. The other deal involves a big tract in Columbia county. It is expected to be closed this week. About $3,000,000 will bo repre sented in this sale. 'Ihe third deal, which involves a considera tion of about $1,000,000 of East ern money, will bo announced probably this week. Oregonian.

Mr. Wiesle, pastor of the German Baptist church, spoke to the pupils of James John High on the subject. "Ucsponsi bility." The close attention given him by tho pupils, and their hearty applause showed plainly how much they enjoyed his address. This was tho first of what we hone may be freqeunt general assemblies addressed by citizens of St. Johns. Z Postmaster T. J. Monahan last week presented the high school with a photograph of our worthy benefactor, James John. Ihe picture pleasingly lrnmcd, now hangs on the wall of the au ditorium as a reminder to us of his generous forethought We heartily thank Mr. Monnhan for his gift. Our school has entered the Or egon High bchool Debuting League. In the Columbia River District, we are grouped with Astoria and St Helens for a tri angular debate to be held somo time after Jan. 1, on the ques tion. "Resolved that the Presi dent of the United States should be nominated and elected by di rect vote of the people." Our High School will have two teams composed of two members each, which will debate this question on the same date, the affirmative team meeting St. Helens nt ionic and the negative being sent to Astoria. It is the plan to select theso teams by a tryout debate in the high school. The Seniors and Juniors enter tained the Sophomores nnd Freshmen Wed. evening Nov. 27 in the High School halls and Gymnasium. The strongest im pression left by tho evening was that of tho whole hearted and friendlv snir t which pervaded tho happy company.

Council Proceedings That St. Johns has a population of at least 15,048 souls was demon strated at the regular meeting of the city council Tuesday evening. A census taken in tho interest of establishing an order of Elks in St. Johns was authorized by the council. t It required a bona fide population of at least 5,000 before the charter could bo se cured. The census was taken by members of the proposed or ganization, nnd when they had secured a safe margin over tho required number nbandoncd their undertaking. Just how many more reside in St. Johns than those enumerated by the census takers is open to conjecture, but it is generally conceded that the number ranges between 300 and 500. The council accepted the report of the enumerators by adoption of resolution. A petition for nn arc light nt the intersection of Fessenden and Midway streets was ordered placed on file. A joint committee from tho Commercial club and city council reported n conference with the county commisioners relative to more reliable ferry service. Complaint had arisen because a dny was taken by the ferry operators to clean the boilers an arrangement that happens almost every week and liable to happen at any time without fore knowledge by the traveling pub lic. To eliminate this nuisance and annoyance the committees were appointed. Tho county court advised running a water main from Bradford street to the ferry landing, so that the boilers could bo cleaned without pumping tho necessary water by hand pumps from tho river. If this is done, the commissioners bcliovcd tho work could be done on Sunday mornings, and due notice bo given by placard ol such innovation, Matter was placed in the hands of the com mittee to tiso its own judgment In tho matter and arrange the schedule of running so that it would allord tho greatest benellt to the greatest number of patrons. T.A. Glover asked for the re newal of liquor license for the period of six months. Referred to the liquor license committee. Captain Fuller, who had been displaced as Captain of the ferry boat, enlisted the aid 01 council in secur ng reinstatement, iho captain stated that he was dis missed without apparent cause. Recognizing the fact that Lap tain Fuller was a valuablo man, faithful and efficient, the alder men did not hesitate to extend tho aid solicited, und the record er was directed to indite a com munication to the county court urging tho return to service of Mr. Fuller. An invitation from tho Fire Department requesting the prtw enco of the councilmen at their smoker to bo given January (5. 1913, was unanimously accepted. Tho Railroad Commission ask ed for a list of all public utilities doing business in St. Johns, mid tho recorder was directed to supply same. A ruling of tho city attornoy decided thut all property could bo assessed moro than tllty nor cent for sewer purposes.
