WE DON'T NEED IT.
The third national irrigation congress
meets at Denver September 3d. We are
in receipt of a brief communication from
the secretary of that congress showing
the number of acres available for culti
vation by irrigation. The arid lands are
estimated at 883,312,000 acres or two
fitths of the entire area of the United
States, of which he says 616,000,000
will produce crops if irrigated. We are
.a firm believer in irrigation, but just
now the raising of crops by any system
is an unprofitable business. If the
Denver congress could manage to find or
create a market for the agricultural
products raised without irrigation it
would fill a long felt want. The farmers
are too numerous now, and the markets
are over done. Until the demand
catches up with the supply 'there is little
nee in agitating the irrigation matter.
The best and biggest crops can be raised
under that system ; but wherefore raise
LET HER RIP.
The Eugene Guard says :
A street fakir last evening held forth
in a saloon of the city. Be drank an
immense quantity of water, punctured
his face, arms and neck with large steel
pin 8 and sewed his mouth. When he
took up a collection and only received
80 cents for his infliction he was just a
little hot and he had a right to be.
That was a peculiar situation. You
see the fellow had his mouth sewed
up, and although he wanted to swear
mildly, he could do nothing but rip out
An exchange says the drift of opinion
is that "populism is declining." We
fail to see how anyone can arrive at that
conclusion. The fact is that populism
is increasing and that rapidly. How
long this will continue, or whether it
will continue long enough to place the
party in power no man can tell. But
there is no use deceiving ourselves about
the pops. In two years they increased
their vote in this state in a phenomenal
manner, and stepped from third to
second place. The recent strike is going
to add thousands to the populist vote
taking a majority of them from the dem
ocrats. Debs and his followers are dis
gusted with democracy, and have no
promises held out to them by the repub
licans, hence they will drift into the
Bene Bache, writing to Sunday's Ore
goman, gives some account of the luxu
ries furnished the United States sena
tors by an indulgent government. The
list is a long and very interesting one,
and among other good things supplied
is twenty-three gallons of cologne a
year. One would think that with this
amount of perfume, the senate could be
saved from becoming a stench in the
nostrils of the country, but the unsavory
smells coming from the recent sugar
deal in the tariff bill would require that
many barrels of cologne to counteract.
It is a malodorous body.
It begins to look as though an agree
ment would be reached between the
senate and houee on the tariff bill, and
that agreement would be practically the
senate bill, with some very slight modi
fications. President Cleveland said
that this could not be done without
"perfidy and dishonor," but the chances
are that if congress can agree, he will
put his signature to the bill, under the
impression that "perfidy and dishonor"
is the only thing the two houses can
agree on. '
The, war between China and Japan
gives promise of drawing other coun
tries into it. England would take a
band unless she thought she conld make
more money by staying out, and Russia
boldly aeBerts that she will not permit
any nation to gain a foothold in Corea.

The Learned Librarian with Sensitive
A commercial value attaches to deli
cacy of taste, a fact illustrated in the
case of "wine-tasters" and "tea-tasters,"
who are g-enerously paid for judging
vintages of wine and chops of tea. Mr.
Jeaff reson, in his "Book About the Ta
ble," tells a story of M. Petit-Radel,
the official taster of fruit to Louis
XVIII. of France.
M. Radel, who was chief librarian of
the Institut, had a taste so exacting
that it was seldom satisfied with the
grapes, nectarines and peaches brought
to his judicial palate by the gardeners
anxious to supply the king's table.
One day, while he was in his official
study examining an ancient manu
script, the door opened and through it
an outstretched hand held a basket
containing four ' superb peaches. It
was a scorching day, and the librarian's
appetite rose at the spectacle. "Enter,
enter!" he ejaculated.
The gardener obeyed. M. Radel,
without speaking, seated himself in an
easy chair, crossed his legs, folded his
hands, and waited with a face express
ing curiosity, doubt and hope. Cut
ting one of the peaches in four parts
with a silver knife, the gardener fixed
one-quarter on the point, and said in a
tone of entreaty as he put the morsel
between the epicure's lips: "Taste the
M. Radel closed his eyes, and was si
lent for two or three minutes, during
which time the gardener regarded him
"Good! very good, my friend!" said
he at last, opening his eyes.
Placing the second quarter between
the epicure's teeth, the gardener said
with more firmness: "Taste the flesh!"
The judge moved his mouth and re
marked with stronger accents of ap
proval: "Ah, very good, my friend,
very good!"' .
"Taste the aroma' said the garden
er, more confidently, as he inserted the
third quarter. -
"Good very . good! my friend, very
The remaining quarter was placed
on the end of the epicure's tongue, and
the gardener exclaimed in a tone of
triumph: "Taste the whole!"
"My friend," exclaimed the delighted
epicure, holding out both hands, "it is
perfect! It is superb! You have con
quered every difficulty. I give you the
homage of my admiration. From to
morrow your peaches shall be served
on the table of the king!"
A SINGULAR ADVENTURE.
How a Sailor Wore .Himself Oat Swim
ming: in Shallow Water.
The second mate of a Lake Huron
propeller had a singular adventure off
Point anx Barques on his first trip.
They had been towing a yawl, which
somehow got adrift, and the mate see
ing it, nearly a mile away, volunteered
to swim after it if the captain would
anchor until his return. This was
agreed to, and the mate started on his
swim. For a tiuarter of an 'hour, says
Golden Days, it was fun, but then the
swimmer began to get weary. The
boat was drifting ashore, and still more
than a mile away. The mate turned
on his back, floated, swam "dog-fashion,"
and on his side, and tried eVery
other way to rest himself, but all the
time kept getting weaker. The poor
fellow felt that he was doomed, liut
kept feebly moving his arms and legs,
until finally his strength completely
gave out, and, with a despairing cry,
he sank to the bottom. To his intense
surprise, he found that the water was
only four feet deep. Of course, he
ought to have been grateful, ,but, in
stead of that, he waded ashore in a
towering rage at his own stupidity. HtS
got the yawl, and when he reached the
ship the captain said: "You confounded
fool, didn't you know there was a mile
and a half of shoal water all along this
