The last big fill In the Salem, Falls City A Western Railway is being made and be fore September 1. trains will be running regularly between Salem, Dallas and Falls City. The construction crews are now within a mile of West Salem and the work is progressing at a Very satisfac tory rate of speed. All but two miles of the road has been built by the company without contracting and as the work has not been unduly rushed the construction has been accomplished at a very mod erate cost, estimated at this time to be about iono.000 for the entire line of 14 miles, or about srio.nort per mile. The new road will open a -ast territory of great wealth and productivity and it is predicted that a wonderful era of " de velopment will follow the opening of the line to traffic. The road will touch seven towns In Polk County, via: West ailm. Fair Oaks. Kola. 'McXary. Derry O.-cbards, Rlrkreall and Bowcrsvtlle. None of the.- towns has heretofore had east and west railway service. The above liet does not include Dallas. Falls City and Klark Rock, which have been on that portion of the foad which has been in operation for some years. Heretofore all the freight and passenger business com ing out of Falls City has been transferred at Dallas to the Southern Pacific. With the completion of the new road between Salem and Dallas much of this business will come directly through to Salem. Motors for Passenser" Trains.. Tlie present passenger schedule of the Salem. Falls City & Western will be com pletely reorganized to cover the entire line, some 30 miles in length. The passen ger service will be handled by the Mc Keen gasolene motor cars. The first car to operate out of West Salem will be a 70-foot car costing about J25.0C0. It will seat 70 people, and carries baggage, ex press and United States mail. It is built entirely of steel and is practically inde structible. vThe first schedule probably .will provide for from four to six trains between West Salem and Black Rock, the western terminus of the line, three miles beyond Dallas. A 50-cent fare to Dallas and S5-cent fare to Falls City will be established for one way trips. Tt is expected that the running time will be about 30 miles an hour. Including stops. There is no more fertile section of the Willamette Valley than the country to be tapped by the Salem. Fall City & West ern Railway. The elevation at Falls City is about the same as at Hood River, but it is claimed the soil in the vicinity of the Polk County loeelng town Is better than that of Hood River as there Is less gravel and rock to contend with while It Is equally as rich as that of the Hood River country.

Best Built Road In State. Chief Engineer S. R. Taylor, who bas had charge of the engineering work on the line for nearly a year, having made the preliminarv surveys last Summer, de clares that the Salem. Falls City West ern will be one of the most substantial roads tn Oregon. The grade Is about the same as that of the North Bank and the greatest curve is an eight per cent. About a mile wesV of West Stalem a half mile of track has been built to the river bank and a big force of men Is engaged In bal. lasting the road with as fine a quality o gravel as can be found anywhere. It is hoped that the entire 14 miles may be ballasted before the Fall rains commence. New 450-pound rails are used on the whole line. The main office of the company will be at Portland, with an operating depart ment at Dallas. L. Gerlinger le president: H. I Plttock, Tlce-president: Charles K. Snauldlng. treasurer: George T.

T li warm sun causes a very rapid evapora tion. Moisture is rapidly brought up from below by capillary attraction, the principle being the same as that which causes oil to rise through a wick when the wick is lighted. The moisture will rise much faster in moist sp41 than In dry soil, and it will rise faster when the particles are packed firmly to gether than when they are loose; and It will rise faster when the particles are fine instead of coarse. "Stubblefields which are to be Sum mer fallowed should be ,mulched as soon as the soli is fit to work in the Spring. If the surface is firm, use a disc The mulch need not be deep, but should form a continuous blanket over the surface. If the surface breaks up in" slices, or lumps, as it frequently does, the disc should be followed with a spiketooth harrow to pulverize the lumps and form a more perfect mulch. While it is vital that discing begin as soon as the soil is fit to work, it is a mistake, particularly with heavy soils, to begin when the soil is so moist as to slice up in cheese-like chunks. "As fast as the plowing is done the furrows should be worked down. The best practice is to follow the plow as closely as possible with a sub-surface packer. "Successful dry land tillage does not call for an Increased amount of labor so much as for labor to be properly applied. If two or three extra work ings of the soil should be called for, the farmer can determine whether an Increased production, say 10 to 25 bush els per acre, will pay for the extra work."

Farmers Consider Project to , Irrigate 30,000 Acres of the County. PACKING PLANT INDUCES Unable to Excel Grain Yield of Eastern Oregon. Tillers of Soil Want Diversified Crops. Lakes Are Supply. Projects are being developed for the ir rigation of between 25.000 and 30,000 acres of agricultural land in Ine County. Farmers residing on the west side of the Willamette River between Eugene and Junction City, propose by banding to gether to Irrigate between 15.000 and 30.000 acres while owners of land surrounding Springfield on the east eide of the Wil lamette are preparing to resort to irriga tion on an additional 10.000 acres. "The farmers of Lane County are thoroughly awakened to the possibilities of irrigation," said A. P. Stover, who has charge of the irrigation and, drainage in vestigations In Western Oregon for the UnltedStates Department of Agriculture, on his return last night from Eugene. It is true there Is a large acreage in Western Oregon which never will have to be Irrigated to Insure raising good crops hut irrigation is essential to the suc cessful cultivation of much of the prairie land, the fertility of which has been largely exhausted by the raising of wheat for many consecutive years. ' Western Oregon Converted. "'Experience has taught the farmers of Western Oregon that they cannot raise grain crops successfully, especially in competition with tjie farmers of Eastern Oregon. Thev are becoming converted to the idea of diversified farming to which their section of the slate is particularly adapted. It is up to them to turn their attention to raising crops that will make milk and produce hogs and .cattle for the large packing plant which is being es tablished in Portland and ''which will offer an unfailing market for stock from the farm. But irrigation will be re quired to bring these agricultural lands Into a better producing condition and insure the growing of better and more remunerative crops." Water for Irrigation purposes in the Willamette Valley, however, cannot be diverted from the Willamette or its tributaries during the Summer for the reason that at that season of the year their supply is required exclusively for manufacturing purposes at Oregon City. This will make It necessary for the Lane County irrigationists to depend largely on a storage supply. This Js offered by Waldo Lake, on the north" fork of the Willamette. An adequate supply of water can be diverted from this lake into the Willamette and conveyed to the canal gates where it can be turned into the ditches for distribution over the proposed irrigated district. A further source of supply Is provided by another small lake near- the headwaters of the McKenzie River". The charge for this water for ir rigating purposes, according to the pro moters of -the two projects, will not ex ceed $30. an acre for a continuous right. This is cheaper than the charge made by the Government for water through any of its projects in this state. The cost to consumers on the Government projects ranges from about J32 on the Klamath canal to about J65 on the Uma tilla project. Farmers Shown -Water Map. In addressing the Lane County farmers Saturday. Mr. Stover submitted a dia- gram showing the amount of water re ceived by crops in mat county aunng June. July and August aa compared with the amount received by crops in districts now being irrigated. It showed that at Eugene, where the annual rainfall amounts to 36.11 inches," only 2- Inches are received during the three months of the year when moisture ie greatly needed. In the same length of time. La Grande receives. 2.70 Inches of rain while the an nual rainfall reaches 19.45 Inches. At Twin Falls, Idaho, with an annual preci pitation of 15.03 inches, the rainfall for the three Summer months Is 2.96 Inches, but by means of irrigation thia moisture is Increased to the equivalent of 27.6 Inches. A condition almost similar exists at Sunnyslde, Wash., where the rainfall amounts to 7.10 Inches annually, of which only .97 inches is received during June, July and August. But irrigation is em ployed with the result that crops re ceive a total of 26.65 Inches. - Convincing proof of the value of irri gation in the Willamette Valley was fur- DE- PER ACRE.

Some call a suppression of symptoms a cure. They dose for drug effects and claim that nothing more can be done. 'But the real ailment remains, and will bring the real symp toms back again, perhaps the same as before, but very likely leave the patient in a much worse condition. I claim that nothing less than complete eradication of disease can be a real cure. I treat to remove the disease, and not merely the symptoms. I search out every root and fiber of an ailment, and I cure to stay cured. WEAKNESS I not only cure "weakness" promptly, but I em ploy the only treatment that can possibly cure this disorder permanently. It is a. system of local treatment entirely original with me, and is employed by no physician other than myself. This may seem a broad assertion, but it is just as substantial as it is broad.
