SALEM, Aug. 6. Lloyd T. Reynold.
Commissioner of Horticulture for the Sec
ond District, has discovered a parasite
which preys upon the army worm and
promises to exterminate the pest. "While
spraying: potatoes, he mashed one of the
army -worms and found that it was be
ing devoured by smaller worms living
In its interior. He made a thorough in
vestigation and found that the ichneumon
fly deposits its eggs in the army worms;
that the eggs hatch out small, white
worms; that these worms devour the
army worms, leaving the vital parts until
the last; that the army worms live until
about the ilme of going Into the crysalls
state, but never develop Into moths, and
that the small white worms are evolved
Into Ichneumon illes. Mr. Reynolds be
Heves from his observations that the flies
have made a general raid upon the worm
and that the farmers need not fear a
renewal of the ravages of this pest next
State Educational Matters.
County Superintendent R. F. Robinson,
of, the Multnomah County schools, has
resigned his position as a member of the
State Board of Examiners. He gives the
following reason for resigning: 'Having"
been elected County Superintendent of
Multnomah County, I deem it best, before
entering upon the duties of the Superin
tendoncy. to withdraw from the State Ez-
amlnlng Board. While the statutes do not
expressly forbid an examiner who has
been elected to the County Superlnten
donoy from continuing Tipon the State
Board. In my opinion the spirit of the
law Is that one person should not hold
the two positions at the same time."
The State Board of Education today
arccpted Superintendent Robinson's resig
nation, and elected J". S. Landers. Super
intendent of Schools at The Dalles, to
fill the vacancy. A vacancy In the board

edge of such matters would have
guessed. the crop to return at least 30
bushels per acre. The straw was very
heavy and the heads large, the stand
being thick, yet when threshed the result
was a grand average of 13 bushels per
Uacre. On the other hand, the poor-look-ring
crops make as many sacks to the
acre as do the flne-appearlng fields. The
grain production is all the way from 6
to 16 bushels per acre, the latter figure
being the highest heard of in this sec

WASHINGTON, Aug. 2. A rural free

agreed to October 20, 1S9$, by Secretary
Hay on behalf of the United States, and
Reginald Tower, Charge d'Affalrs of the
British Embassy, Is as follows:
"It Is hereby agreed between the gov

at Chilkat River, above Klukwan. There
Is another stretch at the suinmlt of Chil-

So much discussion has followed the pub
lication of the fact that the men were
at work upon the boundary, that the fol
lowing statement was obtained at the
State Department, a svnopsls of which
has heretofore been published:
statement of State Department.
"The heated discussion of the modus
vlvendl on the Alaska frontier in certain
New York "papers has created the Im
pression that it is' something new which
is being discussed. No negotiations have
taken place between this country and
England, for nearly a year. The discus
sion began long ago. and lasted until
last Summer. On the 20th of October, 1S99,
an agreement for a temporary and pro
visional boundary line was arrived at be
tween the .Secretary of State and Regi
nald Tower, of the British Embassy,, and
no further action has been taken by this
Government, except the appointment of a
member of the Coast Survey, who, in con
junction with another Commissioner ap
pointed by the Canadian Government, Is
now running the line agreed upon last
"There has been no settlement of the
question of the permanent boundary be
tween the United States and Alaska. The
discussion of this matter has lasted for
many yeans. It has Its origin In a dis
puted Interpretation of the" Russian-English
treaty'of February 2S, 1825, by which
the boundary agreed upon was a line fol
lowing the 'sinuosities of the 'coast' at a
distance of 10 marine leagues, except
where the mountain range bordering tjie
coast approached it nearer than that dis
tance. In which case the mountain range
was to be the boundarv. At the time
the treaty was made little was known
either of the sinuosities of the coast or
of the mountain range, and. therefore,
-when the countrv came to be surveyed
and mor or loss settled, constant dis
putes arose as to the- boundary.
"The United States contended that the
boundary went around the head of Lynn
Canal at a distance of 10 marine leagues,

except where the CoastJtange approached
nearer than that to the sea. The Cana
dians and the British Government In
sisted that the whole of Lynn Canal and
the adjoining region fell within Cana

at Dy negotiation, ana wnen ine joint
High Commission of some years ago came
into being, it wasted the greater part of
Its time in a vain discussion of the mat
ter. It was equally impossible to agree
upon a plan of arbitration.
Reason for a Modus Vivendi.

' enable them to agree upon a temporary
arrangement to suspend the long-stand
ing dispute between them.
"The British and Canadians were ex
tremely anxious for a foothold upon the
coast If they could not get the whole
of the t"let of the Lynn Canal, which
they claimed, they Insisted strenuously
on at least having a portion of it and a
harbor in tide water.
"This pretension was with equal energy
resisted by the Government of the "United
BOUNDARY ACCORDING TO
States, who at last succeeded in getting
the British Government to accept the
American contention and to draw the line
at the Junction of the Chilkat and Tlehlnl,
Rivers, some miles north of the most
northerly Indian settlement In Alaska,
and taking In the valley of Porcupine
Creek to file point where it enters Into
the Tlehlnl. The line is thus removed
no less than 10 miles from tidewater.
Guarding; American Rights.
"For the purpose of guarding the rights
of any American miners who by the mo
dus vlvendl should be found outside of
the,temporary line thus drawn, the United
States Insisted upon the following pro
vision: " Tt is understood as formally set forth
in communications of the Department of
State of the United States, that the
citizens or subjects of either power found
by this arrangement within the tempo
rary Jurisdiction of the other shall suffer
no diminution of the rights and privileges
which they now enjoy.'
"It will be seen by this statement that,
so far from the United States having
'ceded to Great Britain a territory as
large as the State of Rhode Island,' they
have not ceded to Great Britain one inch
of territory, and that in the mutual con
cessions which made tKe modus vlvendl
possible Great Britain temporarily yielded
to the United States fully nlneteen-twen-tleths
of the territory In dispute."

Some poisons enter the blood from without, through the slcin by absorption, or
inoculation ; others from within, as when waste products accnrnnlate in the
system and ferment, allowing disease germs to develop and be-tafcen into the
circulation. While all blood troubles have one common origin, each has some
peculiarity to distinguish it from the other. Contagion!. Blood Pofjon, Scrofula,
Cancer, Rheumatism, Eczema and other blood diseases can be distinguished by
a certain sore,-ulcer, eruption or inflammation anDearini- on the skin. Rerv btooH
disease shows sooner or later on the outside and on the wealtest part of the body, or where it finds the least resistance.
Many mistake the sore or outward sign for the real disease, and attempt a cure by the use of salves, liniments and otheJ
external applications. Valuable time is lost and no permanent benefit derived from such treatment.

STRONG ARM OF EMPEROR
REACHES TO THE REMOTEST PARTS
v OP THE "WORLD.
Kaiser "William's Speech at the Un-
velliiisr of the Statue of the
BIELEFELD, Prussia, Aug. 6. At the
unveiling of the statue of the great elec
tor today, Emperor William delivered a
notable speech, dwelling on the dark days
of the Thirty Years' War and the- "Im
perishable service" rendered by Frederick
William In building up the country in
the hope of establishing a great northern
empire, which one day shall draw to
gether the fatherland.
"This wonderful result," said the Em
peror, "has finally been fulfilled, and
chiefly because every Prince has been ani
mated by the consciousness that he was
only an earthly governor, and had to ren
der an account to a higher King. To me,
it is perhaps granted to fulfill a part of
tho great elector's dream. What he could
only point to we are now able to take
up on a larger scale, because we are
united in the fatherland and marching
forth In an army consisting of sons of
every hamlet in Germany, to support the
black, white and red of the flag, which
shows that the arm of the Kaiser reaches
to the remotest part of the world. With
out the great elector this would have
.been Impossible. If every- one takes the
same view of the task of the' elector, I
am convinced that great times are still
In store for our great fatherland."
