around that a new (-olitical organisation, or
secret political society does not come to the
front. The latest is an association of farm

"The Farmer's Reliance." This is the
plat tor m, which possesses the merit of brev

SO days in the year; never go to town w ith

Stauksmt pools of greenish looking water
are standing on the street, alleys and
back yards, and if the health and police

It is true the rains make matters worse, but
there is cunsideranle complaint already.
Now that the ordinance establishing the

council, it is ttie desire of all citisens inter

pushed to completion as rapidly as possible.
While there are plenty of idle men the work
can be done mure cheaply than when the

It is observable of late that a majority of
the sawmills on the lower Columbia river
are lying idle at least three fourths of the
time, while the mills in Portland and Ore
gon City are running all the time they can
get logs. This can be accounted for from
the fact that city mills have the advantage
I of selling the skbs, sawdust and refuse
rr.ateriul, which add largely to the profits,
while these articles are a dead waste at the
Columbia river mills. Now that Columbia
river logs are used here both at the pulp
and sawmills, the need of an open channel

The farmers of Clackamas county, who
are situated at a distance from river and rail
transportation, and who have to haul their
products some distance to market, should
be brought to a realization of their loss by
the wear and tear of horse flesh and vehicles
in hauling over bad roads. If they would
estimate the profit they lose each year, by
not having roads that can lie used in the
winter, it would make them the most zeal
ous advocates of good roads to be found.
There are times when It would pay better
to dispose of stock that are being rattened
for the butcher, and sell the feed at a good
price. But such opportunities often occur
in the winter, when it is iniOHsible to get
to the railroad station or steamboat binding.
With good roads in winter the farmer can
ol'ien take advantage of the markets and
reap a handsome profit.

Sawdust seems coming to the front most
wonderlully in various ways; a company at
Tacoma use it as a dryer in a plaster extens
ively manufactured there. The .Brick, Tile
& Potteries' Journal says that a French
writer recommends the use of sawdust in
place of hair usually mixed in mortar. He
made a com position of two parts sawdust,
two parts of lime, five of sand and one of
cement, which be alleges is very firm and
will not peal off. It also states that the
technical royal school at Charlottonhurg has
been making a series of experiments with
sawdust, and lias now proved that it can be
used as building material. The sawdust, is
mixed with certain refuse mineral products,
and compressed with a pressure of 1 ,5iiO,000
WIoks to flic ijiiadratiieter into the form of
bii'.ks; ultor this treatment, the sawdust

dialogues and recitations. Miss Cflsto fur
aisbed an autobiographical sketch of the
life and labors of Noah Webster. It was
very fittting, as the entertainment was giv

very stormy the attendance was large.
