Captain Korvlk always shapes bis
count to and from Tillamook Bay so
that he pannes between Tillamook Rock
and the mainland, thereby avoiding
currents. Cm his last yoyajce he dis
cerned one of the keepers standing at
the base of the rock, wildly waving his
hat. Having recently answered a sig
nal of distress there and taken one of
the keepers ashore who was suffering
from asthma. Captain Ronrlk Immedi

From that position he saw floating
lowly from the rock a pole standing
uprlcht. to the top of which was fas
tened a United Slates mallsack. At
tached to the pole was a Ashing line,
held by the man ashore, and by means
of the line and current he guided the
new-fangled mail carrier toward the
"'The Vosburg was within 100 feet of
the Kock and as the pole, with Its
cargo, floated a safe distance from the
big pinnacle. Captain Rorvlk ordered
the engine backed, and. swinging the
head of the tug toward the pole, he
rang for full speed ahead and as he
passed the sack one of the deck crew
reached out and grabbed It. It was
delivered at the Astoria postofflc.
Captain Korvlk saya that the pole
was weighted with Iron or other metal,
so that a portion of It, was submerged,
while to give It greater buoyancy short
boards had been lashed around It at
the water's edice. so that It easily car
ried the heavy sack. While the light
house tenders make trfcjs to Tillamook
rock often, the men are unable to com
municate with the mainland at other
times, except through the consideration
of the master of a small vessel that
can get close to the station.

5EE0 RICE SHORT

PRICE ADVANCES SHARPLY

duras, Head Rice Very Few
Lots Are Offering Ixiw-Grado
, Tens Moving; Upward.
The Government report Issued on De-
camber 15 shows the crop of Japan aeed
rice tn Taxaa and Louisiana to be extremely
short. This Is due to the fact that last
season the farmers produced a big crop,
which caused low prices, while the market
for Honduras or head rloe was high. The
growers this year, therefore, largely .planted
head rice and the result la a surplus of
head and a ahortage of Japan seed rice.
The result of the publication of the Gov
ernment bulletin was an advance In the
price of Japan rice of U to cent per
pound. The market Is strong at the ad
vance and vary few lota of this grade are
Another factor that gives stability to the
market la the organization of the Rough
Rica gelling Company, which controls a
large proportion of the output of rough
rice, especially Japan aeed.
Japan aeed rice la now almost equal In
price to ordinary Honduras, and In the
opinion of the trade, head rice must ad
vance In sympathy with the Japan sort. In
any svent, a larger percentage of the trade
will be thrown on Honduras or head rice.
