'The Anglo Worm Extraqtor,"
on ultra-modern dovico with pat

, in tlio United States, Canada and
St. Johns, is now being exhibited
by Captain M. It. Stark and Fir,
man B. R. Wolfe of tho St. Johns
ilro department, which promises
to bo a boon to prospective fisher
men whoso inclination to fish is
, sometimes diminished by tho
thought of tho backbrenking job
of "digging tho worms."
A piece of heavy copper wiro'
. about 12 inches long, connected
to an extension cord, screwed in
to an electric light socket and the
now dovico is complete and ready
for action. Stick tho wiro into
the ground nt an nnglc, watch tho
surfaco and immediately out will

of leading tho littlo fishes into
Captain Stnrk docs not claim to
bo tho onginotor of this modern
invention, for, according to him
somewhere, sometime, ho has
read, drcamod or heard of such a
thing and during tho hot weath
er which Portland has been cx

wncn engaged ono particularly
hot day in spading up tho biggest
part of a lot in quest of a fow

what ho had read, dreamed or
heard and immediately sought
tho cooperation of his firemen in
getting one ready for operation.
Tho device worked like a charm.
One fireman extracted from tho
ground in a few minutes cnouirli
worms to fill a pound coffco can.
But tho worms wore of poor qual-
, uy isr, too small and skinny to

Every indication points to Im
mediate work on the Long Bell
Lumber company's mammoth
Kelso development project, that
will ho lite largest single nidus,
trial development in tho history
of the lumber industry. A land
ing for a ferry at limner, Ore.,
has been acquired by the compa
ny and a dock is being built near
liio mill sue; a romi sixty led in
width is being graded and grav
eled across the sile. This runs in
n direct line from the ferry land
ing to tho west end of the Kelso
bridge, a distance of two miles.
It is unofficially stated that a
ferry for transfer of loaded
freight cars across the Columbia
will be installed later, and that
supplies for the mill and other
const met Ion will bo routed via
Rauicr and brought across the
Columbia on the ferry until such
time as tho company has direct
rail connection with the mill site.
Not less than 200 residences will
be erected at the mill site this
Fall for use of employes, accord
ing to unofficial opinion among
employes. Plans for the mill, an
I immense docking system and ev
ery phaso of the project awaits
tho order to go ahead, which men
high up in tho organization ex
pect, at any time. - Abstract.
Will Still Keep Young
When I have reached three
score and ten I hope I will not be
like sundry sad and ancient men
that every day I see. I hopo I'll
never bo so old, so broken down
and gray, that I will lift my
voice and scold when children
round mo play. I hopo I'll never
bo so sere, so close to muffled
drums, that 1 can't waltz around
and cheer whene'er tho circus
comes. I hopo I'll never wither
up or yet so foundered be that I
wont gambol with a pup when it
would play with me. I hopo I'll
not, while yet alive, bo bo much
like a corpse that 1 wont seize a
chuiico to drive a good high step
ping horse. Though I must hob
ble on a crutch to help my feeble
shins, I'll always yel.l to beat the
Dutch whene'er the homo team
wins. Perhaps I'll live a thou
sand years I sometimes fear I
will, for something whispers in'
my car 1 am too tough to kill I
may outlast the modern thrones
and all tho kings thereon; but
while 1 navigate my bones I'll
try, so help mo John, to bo as
young in mind and heart as my
springnld near, and when for
Jordan I depart, go like a gay
roan steer. Walt Mason.
