made known it i extremely probable
that the blue pencil would have paed
through these interesting bit of news.
If the new rule is to do away with
these picturesque feature of the insti

popularity generally. The frank and
open manner of which the professor of
the institution have startled the public
ha made Chicago university new

than the routine affair of other universities.

NEED OF NORTH JETTY.
There i a disposition on the part of
some in this city to minify the
value, and even the necessity of the
north jetty at the mouth of the Colum
bia river. Luckily, most of these efforts
emanate from sources of little or no
weight and will have but passing ef
fect) in discrediting the plan of im
provement inaugurated by the govern
ment. It is, of course, expedient that
the south jetty should be completed in
order to determine the actual length
and direction of the north pur, yet
even this is not absolutely essential,
but, that both are requisite and impera
tive elements of a comprehensive sys
tem fully understood and ordained by
the government it-elf, upon whoe
plans the north arm is incorporated
and in whoe estimates the same is cal
culated, is beyond all dispute; and that
it is endorsed by men who are no lay
men in the premises, wa captain., pil
ots and chip-owners, and others in fre
. quent contact with the bar and its ne
cessities, and intimately familiar with
the sand-shift and currents at work
there, is also beyond any controversy.
The Astoria Chamber of Commerce
is composed of men whose dictum in an
imporant matter of this sort h back
ed by every consideration of public
utility, and abetted by intelligent re
search and. the absorbing interest of
property owners in the port moat near
ly amenable to the scheme of improve
ment now afoot at the mouth of the
Tiver, and it i not likely they would
sanction, nor urge upon the govern
ment, a futility of such dimensions.
The plea that the north arm would
net up a current so swift that the
coastwise steamers could not enter the
port against it, is the one superb argu
ment in its favor, for such a current
as that projected from the mouth of
the Columbia river would almost in
staritly, speaking comparatively of
course, dig, and maintain the long
wished for 40 feet of ship-way aeroas
that barrier without extraneous) aid;
and this is the vital reason why the
north jetty was included in the plana
now under way. Having dug out the
channel of its own voilition the current
would abate with its deepening until
the last vestige of tidal resistance had
SHOWS THE WAY OUT.
The suppression of the infamous and
dangerous cigarette a reformation
deemed almost hopeless, ha received a
revivifying impetus at the hands of the
chief of the Seattle tire department
who has forbidden their use by men in
that service under pain of instant dis
charge. There is a broad hint in this
to every employer in the land. If the
employing class will unite in the en
forcement of a business ukae of .the
same tenor and carry it out upon the
instant of detected violation, the habit
will W put to the bad in a remarkably
short space of time. The remedy is
thorough, practical and must prove ef
fieaous, since the bread and butter are
usually more iusistant than even the
craving for cigarette indulgence; and.
since those who have no need to lie em
ployed at wages, are in a class by them
selves and at liberty to hasten their
own dissolution in the quickest and
most preferable way, they may be left
out of the calculation and permitted
to enjoy the assinine momqmly.
DELAY IS INEXCUSABLE.
Further delay in the matter of pro
jecting the plans for Astoria's new and
modern hotel, is inexcusable. The idea
will assume shape at the next meeting
of the chamber of commerce, and it is
expected a goodly concourse of mem
bers and citizens will be in attendance
to give the preliminaries a limit of
sanction and endorsement that will en
sure its definite launching. This ac
complished, the scheme will take care
of itself, for nothing ever languishes
in Astoria that is once fairly started
under decent auspices backed by honest
SOUTH AMERICAN ANTS.
In appointing a press agent for the
Chicago university President Harper in
timates that the news of his seat of
learning is to be censored, since the new
official will give out for publication only
"those facts which deserve publicity."
Manifestly that is all the public desires;
-ut the views of President Harper and
the public as to what "deserves public
ity" may differ widely. For example,
the president may not have been pleas
ed with the published statement that
one member of the faculty had told
iiia class that he had never been kissed,
Have Hade Many Astoria Residents
No wonder scores of Atoria citizens
grow enthusiastic. It is enough to make
anyone happy to find relief after years
of suffering. Public statements like the
following are but truthful representa
tions of the daily work done in Astoria
by Doan's Kidney Pills.
V. R. Mcintosh, whose place of resi
dence is at 593 Harrison avenue, says:
"For years I suffered very much from
laments and soreness across the small
of my back. To turn in bed gave me
painful twinges and when I was not
working but simply standing around
there was a constant aching over my
hips. The kidney secretions gave me no
end of trouble. I often thought I had
gravel so painful were the secretions in
pasning, I read about Doan's Kidney
Pills and got a box at Charles Rogers'
drug store on Commercial street On
taking them I soon noticed an improve
ment in . my condition and the pain
across my back was soon wonderfully
relieved. Though I did not take Doan's
Kidney Pills as regularly as I should
have done they did me a great deal of

Saved Hii Life,
J. V. Davenport, Wingo, Ky., writes,
June 14, 1902: "I want to tell you I
believe Ballard's Snow Liniment saved
my life. I was under the treatment
of two doctors, and they told me one of
my lungs was entirely gone, and the
other badly affected. I also had a lump
in my side. I don't think that I could
have lived over two months longer. I
was induced by a friend to try Bal
lard's Snow Liniment. The first applica
tion gave me great relief; two fifty
cent bottles cured me Bound and well.
It is a wonderful medicine and I rec
ommend it to suffering humanity." 25c,

The greatest road builder in the
world are a specie of red auta found
In South America. In bulldlug a road
they carry minute particle of clay,
with which they line all the roads as
well as the galleries and passages of
their neat till they look as smooth as
If cemented by a master mason. Some
Idea of their number can be formed
when It Is remembered that the whole
of this road to their tree, perhaps near
ly half a tulle long. Is densely thronged
with a multitude going out empty aud
coming hack with their umbrella like
burdens, while thousands upon thou
sands swarm In the doomed tree.
That this vast army is under the best
discipline ran be proved by watching
them for ouly a few momenta. The
drivers art constantly running up and
down giving their orders to the work
en, which they do by touching heads
for a moment. The Individual so
touched will atop, turn back, hurry for
ward or show In some such way that
he Is following some command. But
a better proof of the discipline la fonnd
In the fact that when the army meets
with an obstacle, such aa a log or a
large atone, there la a Jam of ants on
both sides, and they run about in dis
may and disorder. Instantly the driv
ers hurry up. showing the greatest ex
citement, and run over, around and un
der the Impediment to flud the best
way out of the difficulty. When they
have decided they lead off the Hue of
march In the proper direction. But
until they take this step the workers
make no attempt to pass the obstacle.
When a selection of a level piece of
ground has been made a perpendicular

and six or seven feet deep formed.

of each series of galleries' spoke a cir
cular gallery Is made, forming, as It
were, a set of wheels one above the
other. In, or, rather, above, these cir
cular galleries the nests or dwelling
place are constructed. These are oval
In shape and about foot long. The
narrow end of the oval Is downward
and opena Into the roof of the gallery,
and aa the spokes always slope slightly

matter how heavy, can enter the homes
and breeding places of the ants.
