1KRIGATK LARGE TRACT.
iiMiiy Has Itig Project in Wil
Eugene, Ore. The Mackenzie Ir
rigation & Power Company, which
recently filed on waters of Clear
lake, at the summit of the Cascade
mountains, the Hill railway interests
paying the filing fee of several thou
sand dollars, has announced that
actual construction work on the irri
gation canal and laterals will begin
in this vicinity immediately. Papers
wherein a large number of farmers
above Eugeue and Springfield agrfce
to take the water for their lands,
were filed for record with the county
clerk this week, including contracts
for the purchase of two large farms,
one from Robert Vitus and the other
from August Vitus, on the Mackenzie
north of Eugene. . The company
agrees to take the Robert Vitus farm
or 329 aires at $175 an acre, and
the August Vitus place of 2S9 acres
at $200 an acre.
This company was organized by lo
cal men three years ago, and suc
ceeded in interesting the Hill rail
way people in the enterprise early
this year. It is believed the w:ater
from the lake will be used to gener
ate electric power for the operation
of electric railways and then used
for irrigation, serving a double pur
pose. The proposed main canal for
irrigation will extend from Hen
driek's bridge, 15 miles above Eu
gene, on the Mackenzie, to a point
five miles northeast or the city. It
will serve several thousand acres oi
the richest valley land.

San Francisco Woman Attacks Col
Jege for Alleged Fraud.
San Francisco. Mrs. Louise Pono
ronse has sworn to a warrant for the
arrest of Madame Gertrude Pona, a
widely advertised dermatologist with
a large establishment in the fashion
able shopping section of Geary street,
charging that Madame Gertrude ad
vertised and deceived the wrinkled
public with a fraudulent "ten-minute
wrinkle, remover," which was, in
truth, she complains, nothing but the
lieaten whites of eggs which did not
eradicate wrinkles as it was adver
tised to do.
One day Mrs. Ponoronse says she
surreptitiously came upon Madame
Gertrude beating a number of eggs
in a bowl and accused her or thus
foisting the plebeian egg upon the
public as an aid to prolong youth. .
Mrs. Ponoronse said she had
probed the miserable secret and then
she bethought herseir of the thou
sands of dupes who paid enormous
amounts for the treatment, when
they might be beating their own
eggs, and she decided that such base
deception must cease. Hence the

Leaguers at Play.
Tuesday evening between 6 and 7
o'clock some sixty Epworth Leaguers
went up 'the canyon to the picnic
grounds and spent two or three hap
py nours in eating, drinking and
making merry. The fourth depart
ment under the capable leadership
of Miss Grace Barney had provided
a huge cauldron of coffee, two or
three hundred buns and a chain of
Wienerwurst sausages about nine
rods long. The latter were roasted,
toasted, smoked and grilled over the
campfire on switches held by hun
gry picnickers, who were strangely
interested m a .story about a plump
little poodle-dog recently captured
by Chief Oien and last heard from in
the rear of the City Meat Market
This tale seemed to cast a gloom
over the assembly and one of the
girls complained of feeling faint and
said she didn't care much for "wie
nies," anyway. However, the feel
ing of happy hilarity was soon re
stored by singing that delightful
"Oh where, oh where is my little dog
This was followed by playing the
ever-popular "three-deep" and simi
lar games. A list of guests could not
be obtained, but the Medford league
was represented by a jolly party of
six, chaperoned by irrepressible Ben

itAISES PERFECT ONIONS.
Kvans Valley Man Has Evolved Mild,
Louis Slvera of Evans valley was
a Rogue River visitor Monday, says
the Argus. Mr. Sivers, py the way,
is some onion grower and one might
do worse than follow his methods in
raising this staple vegetable. Last
year he harvested 16,000 pounds or
perrect onions rrom a quarter of an
acre of ground and expects to do
equally as well this year. He has
developed what is probably the only
true southern Oregon onion. By
crossing Mr. Sivers has combined all
the poor ones or two popular varie
ties and he now has a large and at
the same time mild, sweet onion.
Mr. Sivers had a great deal or Inter
esting information regarding the cul
ture of his pet vegetable, but the
main points he brought out were:
Early sowing, plenty of room In the
row, constant but shallow cultivation
and an abundance of water applied in
the cool of the day.
