Channel Has 24 Feet at Low
Water in Columbia.
Engineer's Method of Construction
Saves Jetty Trestle From Serious
Damage by Storms,-and Re- .
-pairs Will Be Made.
The Columbia bar has 24' feet of water
at low tide, an increase of three feet since
last June. The deeper channel is due to
the extension of the jetty. Only a fraction
of the extension has -been completed, and
If Congress supplies money this winter
lor finishing the work, the depth is ex
pected by the United States engineers to
exceed SO feet two years hence; perhaps
to approach 40 feet. Two more summers
will be needed to complete the extension.
Examination of the Jetty yesterday by
the Government tug George H. Mendell
showed that the recent violent gales have
not damaged the unfinished jetty, nor in
jured the new tramway. About 4000 feet
of old tramway, eaten by teredoes, was
recently swept away, but work has al
ready begun to replace it. The cost of
this work will be about 935,000.
The 7000 feet of new tramway withstood
the storms remarkably well, and the en
gineers are highly pleased. Major Lang
fltt's plan of at present building up the
Jetty only to two-thirds its full height has
undoubtedly saved the trestle, since it al
lowed the seas to spend their force un
obstructed beneath. The new section of
the Jetty Is built up to a height of between
13 and 20 feet, and when finished will be
.20 feet The jetty is yet to go out 6000
feet. The aim of the engineers is to se
cure 40 feet at low tide.and if the exten
sion now building will not scour out that
depth their plans call for another Jetty
.from the north cape. The estimate of the
chief of engineers for the next river and
harbor bill will not finish the Jetty. Ma.
Jor Langfltt has estimated that the sum
necessary for completion is $1,320,000, and
the chief of engineers has cut this down
to $776,000.
The big bar dredge Chinook will be laid
off at the end of this month for repairs.
From now until Spring the bar will bo
too rough for effective dredging. Repairs
will be made to the boilers, and the stern
post, and the vessel will have to go Into
drvdock. The cost of the repairs will be
between $12,000 and $15,000. If Portland
bidders can win the contract the big ves
sel can be lifted out of the water In the
Port of Portland drydock.
It is the generally accepted opinion that
the dredge has done more to eat up the
last congressional appropriation than to
deepen the bar.

Why Teachers Are III Paid.
ALBANY, Or., Nov. 22. (Special)
In an address on the "Status of the
Teacher" before the Linn County
teachers Institute in this city this fore
noon, Superintendent "V7. G. Hartranft,
of Seattle, characterized school teaching
as the lowest-salaried profession in the
world. And ho blamed the school
teachers in part for this condition of
affairs. He said the average length of
service of the school teachers was three
years, and on account of this most
schools were taught by inexperienced
teachers with a consequent lowering of
t"e standard of the profession.
This is one of the principal reasons,
Superintendent Hartranft said, why
salaries are not raised. If teachers
enter the profession with the proper
spirit and qualify themselves so they
become indispensable to certain dls
trlcts they can demand their rights in
regard to salary and be paid what they
are worth.
Besides the address at assembly tho
teachers are receiving a great deal of
practical instruction in different Im
Dortant subjects of school work. Tho
instructors are Superintendent Hart
ranft. President E. D. Ressler and Pre
fessor C A. Rice, of the Orecon State
Normal School, and Professor T. A.
Hayes, of this city.
Death Lurked in Jugs.
PAYETTE, Idaho, Nov. 22. A mixture
of four pounds of arsenic, four pounds of
soda and a gallon of water was tho fatal
beverage that met the lips of Charles B
Jackson, as he tilted a Jug supposed to
contain water in the pear orchard of J. H.
Ch&whan. near Payette. Tho jug con
tained a formula used for spraying the
fruit trees.
Jackson was unable to get farther than
a. road adjoining the orchard after swal
lowing the poisonous fluid. He was picked
up by William Davis, who helped him to a
near-by house, and sent for a physician.
Nothing could be done, and Jackson died.
Deceased was able to give little inior
nation about himself or his relatives. He
managed to make it known, however, that
he 'had a mother in Kansas. The only
paper found on him was a receivers re
celpt given at the Boise Land Office for
homestead entry.

Vegetable Placed In Boilers Neutral
ize Effects of Acid.
Pittsburg Dispatch.
Owing to a worklngman's discovery
that potatoes placed in boilers will coun
teract the action of foreign acids and
alkali on the boiler tubes, thousands of
dollars will be saved annually by the Car
negie Steel Company at Its big mills in
the lower Monongahela "Valley.
The water of the Monongahela River Is
said by men familiar with Its action on
boiler tubes to be the most destructive
of any on record. Expensive water-soft
ening plants costing as high as $10,000
have come to be considered necessary
equipment of boiler houses getting water
from the Monongahela River.
The Carnegie Steel Company made ex
haustive tests to ascertain what chemical
would neutralize the effect of the acid in
the water and rejected as Impossible
many alleged processes. The only means
deemed of sufficient note to Install Is
mechanical water-softening plant which
passes the water over beds of chemicals
and then slightly heats it before using.
With this process specimens of heavy
pipe are shown which have become as
porous as baked clay through the action
of the water during a short period. Men
working on the boilers of the Carnegie
works cite Instances where boiler tubing
has been eaten through, within firs- day a
after being placed In use. In one. case an

for the life of the tubes passed, and no
leakage was discovered. The time was
doubled, and attention was directed ts
the- time the tubes lasted. The working
man told his employers of his idea. Sep
arate trials were Inaugurated and an ex
haustive Investigation was made.
The result Is said to have been more
than satisfactory. It was found that the
starch In the potatoes almost entirely
counteracted the acid in the river water.
No secret has been made of the dis
covery, companies ana inoiviauais own

have been quick to give the potato a
trial, and the reports have been without
exception satisfactory.

fard expression. I felt as though life,

for life without health is simply a living
death. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip
