up the situation:
" 'Old residents of this section will

spread from hillside to hillside, leav
ing bars of grnvol; oven Islands In
tbo lower rlvor woro washed nwny
lonvlng only fields of gravel, which
shifted more or less with changlnp
winter floods. All tho tailings of the
uppor mines camo down, and the
rlvor bed has boon filled, leaving only
gravel bars, small stretches of deep
wntor, nnd stoop riffles to confront
tbo navigators of today along tbo up

especially apparent when tho low

nearly a foot, and would again swell,
only to no down again, keeping this
up each day. This was a puzzler for
a wlillo, but was soon traced to Its
Bourco irrigation system In the
Roguo Rlvor valley tnklng out the
wator. Last mmimer this condition
was especially notlceahlo, and the
mall Carrier had good occasions to
oral miles thin side of tho Illinois
and take tho mall through by other
" 'This summer the conditions
promlso to bo oven more severe on
tho boatmen, owing to the fact that
Irrigation systems of largo size are
contemplated that will take most ot
the water from the Roguo River.'
