of ascertaining whether "the acquisition

of a Large Crowd.
One of the most pleasing features of the
general entertainment tendered by the
city to the delegates of the Irrigation
Convention was the drill by Battery A,
Third Regiment, Oregon National Guard,
at the Armory last evening. The drill
was of special Interest to the visitors, for
many of them had never seen (such a
spectacle before, and the maneuvers of
the thoroughly trained Guardsmen was
an extremely novel sight. It was largely

tlon company drill In extended order.
The Guardsmen marched and counter
marched acioss the concrete floor, and
well displayed their training and the
personal Interest which each unit In the
line took in the success of the evening's
entertainment. After, another echoing
discharge, they also retired through the
wide portals on the south.
The whole battery next appeared, clad
In the neat and serviceable campaign out
fit. At the sight of the Guardsmen, the
crowd which filled the long galleries broke
into applause. The field guns were
brought out, the gatllngs loaded with
blank cartridges and the larger ones with
primings. A deafening roar went up as
they were discharged, and the feminine
visitors screamed in chorus.
After the drill a number of the visitors, 1
especially those from out of town, made
a tour of inspection through the guard
rooms and the officers' quarters on the
lower floor. Here objects of Interest were
plentiful, and the meaning and utility of
the equipments of the men, ranged In
racks on the wall, and the mysteries of
the gunroom were explained to the vis
itors by the officers and many of the
men, who courteously took their guests
through the home of the Third Regiment.
The officers who took part in the drill
were Captain H. U. Welch. First Lieu
tenant Lee M. Clark and Second Lieu
tenant F. H. Burns.
The crowd which swarmed through the
entrance was evidently impressed, with
what it had seen and heard, especially

the claim, and also a decision of the

New York Tribune.
The problem of the 'abandoned" or "run
down" farm in New Hampshire Is finding
at least a partial solution, as simple as
it is characteristic of the times. These
places are being redeemed and beautified
In considerable numbers by intelligent
single women from Boston and elsewhere,
some of whom spend only their vacations
in the country. Within a circuit of about
25 miles among the foothills of the White

These wromen, andf.others similarly occu

well educated, are distinctly recognized in
the farming communities where they have
"become property-holders as residents to
be counted upon when public improve

opinion Is to be formed.
One woman, for example, who has for
the present given up her professiqn on
account of her health, has bought a farm
of rather exceptional value, because it in

she raises large hay crops. She has put
dormer windows into the quaint old house

with old-fashioned furniture, put settles

licious butter served on her table. One
man can do her outside work. One strong
woman docss the heaviest work of the
household, and, with no temptations to
spend her wages, she is making money.
Her mistress is not doing this, but she is

The duty of the Grange was declared to

to perform, and that the man who neglects
