miles long:) as the outlet of Triangle
lake. Now we have the anomaly of
a stream flowing: into a lake more
than half a mile wide, and then flow
ins out again under the same name.
I will give both of these creeks a
chance to go it alone and call the up
per one 13 miles long:, rather than to
piece them together through the lake,
and make one stream 21 miles long.
On the lower Lake creek, two miles
below Triangle lake, Fish creek
flows in from the east and north. It
is five miles long. There are no other
confluent streams in T. 16 S.
In T. 15 S.. the first is Ten Mile
creek, flowing Into the ocean at Min
nie, six miles south of the Tahules
river. It is 10 miles long. (The
early settlers who named most of our
streams, had a sort of habit of nam
ing streams five, six. eight and up to
20 miles, by compounding the numeral
and miles. But not all of the streams
were named from their length. Sometimes-
they were named from their
distance to or from a town or another
stream-or maybe from a haystack or
doghouse. (At least, one would gather
that idea of attempting to give a
reason for the names selected.) Two
miles north of Ten Mile creek is Bob
creek, six miles long, and two miles
north of that is Cummins creek, six
miles long, both flowing Into the Pa
In R. 10, W., Crab creek, five
miles long, flows Into Five rivers at
Fisher. (I will have something to
say later about this river.) Wilson
creek, two miles long. flows into
Buck creek, two miles west of Fisher.
In R. 9, the west fork of Five rivers
flows into the main stream from the
southwest. This fork, is seven miles
long. In the northeast corner of the
township. Preacher creek, five miles
long, flows from the south into Lob
ster creek. There are no debouching
named streams in Ranges 6 or 7. In
R. 5, there is one, Furgeson creek.
10 miles long, flowing into Long Tom.
That is the last in T. 15, and that fin-
shes the named streams in Western
Lane county. The map of that coun
ty is in two parts, eastern and west
ern Lane. I will now begin eastern
Lane at T. 23 S., R. 5V, E. That is
debouching stream is in T. 24 S., R. 5 f
E.. Emigrant creek, which flows into
the middle fork of the Willamette. 1
It is three miles long. In R. 4 E., j
Swift creek, seven miles long, flows
Into the same fork, and in R. 3 E., !
Dead Horse creek, three miles long.
Youngs creek, two miles long, and
Coal creek, eight miles long, also
flow into that fork.
In T. 23 S., Boulder creek, three
miles long. Pine creek, three miles
long, and Buck creek, five miles long,
also flow into the Middle fork. To
the west. Ranges 2 and 3, are in un-
surveyed territory, as in Ranges 4,
5. 54 and 6. In fact, there is a vast
amount of unsurveyed land in the
eastern part of Lane, all of which Is
in the Cascade forest reserve.
There are no debouching streams in
T. 23 S., Ranges 1. 2 and 3 west, but
there is a stream about 10 miles
long which probably has a name.
Going to the eastern boundary line
there is a lake three miles west of
Maiden Peak. Gold lake, apparently
covering about 80 acres, and a couple
of miles to the north are three small
unnamed lakes. The latter one a
mile or so east of the lower part of
Waldo lake, which extends up Into
Range 21. This is a large and famous
mountain lake, famous for its scenic
beauty and trout fishing. It appar
ently covers about 6000 acres. Two
miles east of Waldo lake, but a few
hundred yards west of the summit of
the Cascades, is another small lake,
Charlton lake, covering about 150
acres, all of these lakes, and three
more unnamed, but small lakes, mak
ing 10 in all, are from north to south,
not more than 10 miles apart; east
and west about five miles apart. No
streams flow into them, as are shown
on the maps; but one long stream,
Salt creek, flows out of Cold lake.
We will ome to this in T. 21 S.
In T. 22 S., R. 3 E., Copper Pot
creek, four miles long. Packard
creek, six miles long, and Lairson
creek, seven miles long, all flow into
the Middle Fo:k of the Willamette,
and Tufti creik. four miles long,
flews into Hilld creek.
In the same township and R. 1 E.,
Champion creek, two miles long.

sengers of death has resulted in a
remarkable diminution in their num
bers in nearly every state in the un
Ion. These results were obtained
largely through the killing of the flies
In the hot weather, and through many
sanitary measures which resulted in
the cleaning up the foul places where
the dangerous animals are brought
Into this world.
To kill the fly in January, though,
is a new departure, for this is the
first time on record that a fight
aga'nst the loathsome insect has been
started in tne winter season. When
the Merchants' association of New
York City, through its committee on
pollution and sewerage of which Mr
Edward Hatch Jr. is the chairman,
issued thousands of winter fly cards
a few days since, the wiseacres were
"Flies in January?" said they.
"Flies at Christmas. Whoever heard
of such a thing? And suppose there
are, they are only a few! Why not
let the poor things live?"
One pair of the poor little flies of
winter, surviving to Easter, as so
many couples do, would have by the
following fall, provided they all lived,
no less than 324,000,000,000,000 de
. ecendants, according to the American
museum of natural history. If all
the flies of such a descent survived,
they would reach in a solid phalanx to
the moon. All the flies born in the
spring, if they lived and multiplied
until the time of the harvest days.
would equal in mass the size of
mother earth. To kill a fly in winter
therefore seems to slap quadrillions
the next summer, and all with the
came swat.
It has only been recently that the
fact of the hibernation of the fly has
been recognized. Any one who stops
to think on this subject must realize,
however, that, from time to time in
the winter, he sees flies crawling
languidly along kitchen ceilings and
basking near the lights. If they did
not in some way survive the cold
, weather, these most ' ecund of insects
in all the world, would not be swarm
ing in the breath of spring.
Mr. H-itch. who has for years been
making a close study of the habits
of the fly, was among the first to
detect the presence of the pest in the
household during winter. He found
many well developed specimens one
season in the attic of his home on
Lake Chaniplain. where he has gone
to spend the holidays. They were dug
out of crevices near the chimney, ap
parently as dead as door nails. Taken
down to a room on the fir.t floor,
the insects were laid out on the win
dow ledge in rows. The owner, find
ing that he was a little chilly, for
the thermometer was then below zero,
directed that a rousing fire be built.1
In a few minutes, the supposedly dead
flies were buzzing around the room.
Just as though they were in the heat
of August. When the fire died down
they fell to the floor, where they were
gathered up and taken in a box to
Washington for the inspection of Dr.
L. O. Howard of the bureau of ento
mology. It is a striking example of the re
moval of Ingrained prejudice to con
sider that it was only a few years
ago that the killing of a fly either
in winter or summer was an evil and
cruel act; it was said of the good
little boy who sat on the back seat,
"He would not hurt a fly," unregen
erate youngsters were tHashed with
in an inch of their lives for smashing
flies, although apparently they were
following a perfectly natural instinct
in so doing. The noted leader of the
fly fighters himself, was brought up
as a child to respect the winged pest
and to gently put him out of doors
if there was any question about his
presence being objectionable. A fly
was regarded as a nice play fellow,
against which no one should feel any
resentment, except the man with the
bald pate. Flies were fishea out of
cream jugs and sent on their wnitened
and chastened way, and although they
dm crawl over . jed and awim in drink
no one seemed to think any the worse
of them.
The true inwardness of the ways of
the fly was revealed as the result
of an investigation begun in 190S to
determine the state of the river and
the harbors about New York city. An
expert was appointed to make various
examinations, and he noted that there
were many flies which attached them
selves to the piles of the piers where
they fed upon the ooze and slime of
the sewage ' The insects were ob
served flying inland up the Manhattan
streets of the water front. Trays were
set at certain points in the roadways
during the summer of 1S07 and hun
dreds of these sewage-fed insects
were captured. When single speci
mens were permitted to crawl over
gelatine plates, they left germs of
typhoid behind them which developed
huge colonies.
From that date, the real war against
the fly began. Prizes were offered to
school children for the best essays
on the ways and perils of the fly.
and thus many thousands of the
younger generation were impressed.
Addison Bennett Says There Are No Named Distributaries in Ranges
3 to 8, Townships 19 and 20.
This i the 33d of a series of artic:es by
yr. Bennett on Oregon waterways. The
34th will follow at an early date, pre
sumably the Sunday following this article
Readers of The Oregonian would do well
to save these articles, for when concluded
they will present the first authentic tabu
lation of our rivers, lakes and creeks.
IX TABULATING the Lane county
-streams commencing in Article No.
30. I began at the Pacific in T. 19,
S. R. 12 W., and tabulated the streams
toward the east in that range. But
I failed to mention that there are no
named debouching streams in ranges
3 to 8, in township 19 and 20. But
the great error was in starting: "Be
ginning at the ocean in T. 20 S., R. 12
W.. etc," I made an error, or some
body did, for it should be T. 18 S., in
stead of 20.
I will now take up the streams in
T. 17 3., It. 12 W., at the ocean and
work towards the east. The first
stream ' Sutton creek, two miles
long, which flows into, the ocean
about five miles north of the mouth
of the Sinclair river. It is the outlet
of two connected lakes, Sutton and
Mercer. They apparently have a sur
face of about 7j0 acres. A stream
from the north. Mercer creek, four
miles long, flows into Mercer lake.
Proceeding eastward there is no de
bouching named stream until Indian
creek is reached in It. 10. It is 20
miles long and flows from the north
into Deadwood creek, 15 miles long,
flows into Lake creek at the town of
Deadwood. Lake creek, coming in
from the northeast, flows into the
Sinclair, two miles east of Swiss
home, in It. 9. It is the outlet of Tri
angle lake, in sections 17. IS, 19 and
20. T. 1 S.. R. 7 W. Lake creek is
li miles long. It has. in P.. 8 W.,
one named tributary, which flows in
from the north. Greenleaf creek. 10
miles long. Shallow creek, three
miles long, flows into the Sinclair
river a mile or so below Meadow.
Chickenhawk creek, eight miles long,
flows into -Wild Cat creek, one mile
cast of Walton. Elk creek, seven
miles long, flows into Jack Hays
creek, eight miles long, and Nata
creek, nine miles long, flows into
Long Tom creek. (Long Tom is real
ly a long stream, but will be reached
later, as it flows into the Willamette
at Corvallis.) There are no other de
bouching named streams in T. 17. S.
Beginning T. 16 S.. at the ocean,
the first named stream is Cape creek,
flowing into the Pacific near Heceta
Head. It is six miles long. North
of it four miles, and also flowing into
the ocean, is Big creek, 10 miles long.
Beers creek, seven miles long, flows
into Indian creek at Heed, in R. 10,
W. Bear creek, three miles long,
flows into Deadwood creek, three
miles north of Alpha.. Swamp creek.
four miles long, flows into Triangle
lake, and Lake creek. 13 miles long,
flows from the northeast into Trian
gle lake. It will be noted that I al

Inquiry Will Include Revocation of
Domestic Trade Agreements
and Business Consequences.
(Copyright, 1021. by The Oregonian.)
WASHINGTON', Jan. 22. (Special.)
The chamber of commerce of the
Cnited States is bout to begin a com
prehensive inquiry into the conclusion
of contracts by American business men
on orders placed with British firms.
Woven into and around the investi
gation will be the whole question of
cancellation of contracts, not only
abroad but in the United States.
Iu such cases it has been found to
the interest of the customer and to the
seller for the contract to be modified,
either by cancellation, by change in
price or by change in dates of deliv
ery, so that the customer could con
tinue and the seller could assist in
preserving his customers for the fu
ture advantage to him.
SiK-h arrangements cannot be re
garded as unethical. It is simply un
fortunate that the occasion for their
creation has come into existence at
The minute prices started on the
down grade recently, however, and de
liveries were easier to obtain, cancel
lation of contracts by all classes of
business men began. This is one of
the things whic helped to break the
sugar market, forcing the price of re
tail sugar to the householder from
23 cents down to 10 cents and 9 cents.
It assisted in breaking the silk
markets. It was a contributing cause
to the closing of textile mills and
clothing factories, and one of the con
trolling factors in the shutdown of
shoe factories.
But, while helping to lower prices
to the customer, the cancellation of
contracts played fast and loose with
producers, bankers who had lent
money to do business and the employ
ment of labor. The American Sugar
Kefining company went into court and
sued a big sugar distributor to make
him either take the goods he had
agreed to take or pay the difference
between the low price of the open
market and the high price of his con
tract. This example of suit for dam
ages is being followed all over the
country. Business men, bunkers and
business lawyers are anxiously await
ing verdicts.

to enthuse one day last week when
he felt a chill wind blowing in on him

"Did you not notice how pretty were
the decorations nature is placing
"Say," retorted Mr. Grant, "speak
ing of decorations did you notice
those that we had here during the
imperial council of the Shrine?"
"I surely did," replied Mr. Newill.
"Well," rejoined Mr. Grant, "My
committee and I did that."
And there was silence.

two shook hands.
"It's a grand feeling," replied Mr.
LaRoche, with the broadest kind of a
southern smile overspreading his
"And what are you doing' these
days?" aslied Mr. LaRoche.
"Oh, I'm living in Portland, now,"
replied the ex-mayor emphasizing the
word "living."
And then Mr. LaRoche hurried on
to his law office to insure himself a
living, while Mr. Albee walked briskly
away, ready to insure any one.

It takes iron to make strong, magnetic, forceful men with the power and energy to win
derful thing in all creation without this it is nothing. IRON CARRIES OXYGEN from
your lungs to your brain. Without iron, your brain gets no oxygen; without plenty of blood
and oxvgen your brain becomes dull and heavy, YOUR INTELLECT POOR, your memory
fails, YOU DO FOOLISH THINGS and make bad decisions.
With a "blood and iron" starved briin you may drive your automobile into a telegraph pole,
because YOU DIDN'T THINK RIGHT; it may make you so "nighty" in thought and reckless
in judgment that your money seems to take wings and fiy away; everything seems to go
wrong, to be upside down; you call it 'BAD-LUCK"or misfortune. IRON STARVATION
may turn the coolest man of the strongest will power into a nervous, irritable, careless
being; it may make COWARDS of the bravest and FAILURES of the WISEST.

When your blood is starving for iron no
mere tonics nor stimulants can put you
right. You must eat the husks of grains and the
peels and skins of fruits and vegetables as our
forefathers did to enrich your blood and fill
it wUfr strength-giving iron or take a little or
ganic iron from time to time to nuke up for
the loss caused by modern methods of
living. But be sure that the iron you take
is organic iron and not metallic or mineral
iron- frich people usually take. Metallic
iron ft iron iu?t as it comes from the action
of strong acids on small pieces of iron,
and is therefore an entirely different thing from

blood and like the iron in spinach lentils and
apples. It may be had from your druggist, under
the natne of Nuxated Iron. Kuxated Iron repre
sents orcanie iron in such highly condensed
form that one lose of it is estimated to be
approximately equivalent (in organic iron
content) to eating one-half quart of spinach,
one quart of green vegetables or half a
dozen apples. It's like taking extract of beef
instead of eating pounds of meat. Nuxated

the following test: See how long you can work

tired. Next take two five-grain tablets f or

meals for two weeks. Then test your strength
again and see how much you have gained.
