curing and processing of cucum
bers witty a capacity sufficient to
handle an annual crop pf not less
than 13d acres of cucumbers to
be planted within a radius of not
less thaij 15 miles of the city of
Woodburn. with the exception that
sucnt territory must not extend
south farther .than two miles in
order not to conflict with the Ger
vais contracts. -The building was
begun tiis week and the cost of
the structure and necessary equip
ment wMjl be from $10,a00 to $15.
000. This new industry is made
probablej by the guarantees signed
by the business men of Woodburn
that Mthre will nof be less than
150 acres in any one year so long
as this company may elect to op?
erate such a plant.
The Company in this contract
agrees to pay prices' not less than
those of competitors in this sec
tion, or if there be no competition
then, the average prices paid by
the company throughout the state
of Oregon. The company also
engages in the business: of packing
fruit and vegetables.. i and there
will be la big market here at least
for cabbages and pumpkins.

TORTLAND, Ore., July 5.t
July opens, with the forest fire
situation oil the Pacific coast not
greatly changed during the past
month, being in the main still well
in hand but extremely critical, ac
cording to the bulletin issued to
day by the Western Forestry and
Conservation association from re
ports by Official and private agen
cies in five states. ' '
j Although in moat localities the
dryness and hazard has increased,
temporary favorable weather has
also enabled coping with the ob
nornially numerous fires of early
June, so that the patrol and fire
fighting ' forces have held their
own. Nevertheless, it is one of
the earliest and -most threatening
seasons ever, experienced. Grave
concern is expressed in nearly all
the" reports that without rain, the
situation may get out of hand at
any time unless' settlers, loggers,
and forest i visitors use excessive
caution with fire in any form, in
cluding matches and cigarettes.
Slashings are becoming almost ex
plosive and: fire near them should
be extinguished instantly. i
j Two airplanes have been sta
tioned at Eugene, Ore., by the war
department to assist protective
agencies if the smoke blanket ob
scures the mountain lookouts.
The Oregon state chamber of
commerce, urging similar action
elsewhere. : is making a drive
through local chambers to organ
ize citizens' "Stop Forest Fire
associations," with members fur
nished educational material and
blank pledges of care with fires,
matches and cigarettes.' The for
est "service has initiated a speak
ing campaign through the facili
ties of civic associations. Two
of the largest oil companies doing
business on. the coast are arrang
ing to distribute warnings to all
customers of filling station.
In California the situation is
doubly ' Serious because there is
little hope of more raini. The na
tional forests have had over 400
fires already, 180 of these caused
by lightning, with some 35,000
acres burned. The government
has made 66 arrests aind already
secured over 40 convictions. - Out

Crusade Against
The Df inking Cup
Fc deral. state aiid municipar
healfh authorities, aided by public
and torivate disease prevention' or-i
ganitations, are united to make.
arrrhssive warfare! 'during the!
oo' ; !
summer months against the com
mon drinking : Cupj jand certain
types j of public fountains. The
crusade is based upon a stringent
enforcement of the laws that now
are written in the Statutes of all
but three of the Elates and the
iocs ! health regulations that apply
in every city and Urge town of
importance. . ' - , j j . ' "' '
Threcords of Illnesses that af
flict: ihiundreds of thousands of
persons each year--and which
leave j their deadly j mark upon
children during the; warm months
show that the greater number
mmunicable disease are trace
able to Infection taken from com
mon receptacles. Among these
are;: common colds, grippe, influ
enza, j pneumonia, diphtheria, ton
sili Itis, measles, tuberculosis, .scar
let fever, typhoid fever and in
fantile paralysis.- ( I .
The menace of these illnesses -;
all jot which are sputum-borne dis-ceses-
is through discharges from
the mouth and .nose, left upon
cups. drinking glasses and other
vessels of general use. The germs
are deposited upon the receptacle
through the drippings that flow
bajk from the iiymth, are exhaled
Intb the cup or are imprinted by
th Hps. These await the next
user of the glass when, it is not
properly cleansed In the case
of some types of the so-called buhK
ble fountain bacteria settle in the
bowl or run oft the nozzle to pe
forcibly cast into j the nosp and
tbi mouth of the persons who fol
low in the use of the fountain.
These germs are conveyed by
pej-sons actually III, by others' con
valescing from attacks of disease
and often by persons in full health
whose resistance has made ' them
non-Susceptible to the disease
gefms they carry, iln all these
ca'es the persons act as convey
ers of. ' germs that have a high
morbidly danger and often carry
fatality. . j
The health authorities and thelr:
vouunteer assistants regard the
peril as virulently present in j the
tin dippers, the glasses on push
cdrt ; stands, the containers used
by juvenile or, other wayside bev
erage vendors' and glasses in of
fices and factories. Its greatest
presence, howeverj is in the glass-
es used in certain soda ioumaing
where the law is evaded through
intent or carelessness
i The laws and regulation obtain
g throughout the country pro
vide for a Complete sterilization
or the use of paper cups in such
circumstances where neither time
dor facilities are afforded to make
the glasses sterile. Often, par
ticularly in the rush hours, clerks
Will neglect to comply with the
liw j and consequently the glass.
Which one health authority in
ew, Jersey called tne "goblet of
death"; gains an accumulation ot
disease laden germs'.
( Professor Alvin Davison, the
noted .bacteriologist of Lafayette
dollego in Easton, Pa., recently
conducted a series of analyses up
on, the germ-content of. glasses
tjaken from various soda fountains
and water coolers. He found that
in many instances millions of
bacteria remain on the brim or
Inside the glass. In several case?
He found as many as 300,000
germs within a half Inch of the
top of a rlass where the: lips oi
the next drinkers would come In
immediate contact with them. '

When! the great natural gas
fields , in this section began to
show exhaustion, oil men as well
as. the. plople saw the impending
return t other fuels. In 1023
Heyeral practical gas men began to
discuss ;tW possibilities of! devel
oping wat are known as shale
gas or brown lime gas wells on
a commercial scale. These men
recalled Ihat at various places in
this sectfon there were small ; gas
wells, wh'ich had been producing
steadily lever since they .were
drilled. But the gas from these
wells was wet. How to commer
cialize te product by finding a
method i bf separating the water
from thelgas became the question,
A gropp of Neodesha inen or

pany leaed hundreds of acres of

oneratious were, started. ! Wells
were drilled I with great success,
and the! men asserted they en
countered little of the uncertainty
met in drilling for sand gas. In
additioni they said there are as
surances! the wells drilled will
have remarkable longevity. r: The
Industrial promise of lime gas. Is
a large factor. i j
The source of shale gas re
mains unsolved, although j the U.
S. bureaju of mines has advanced
the theory that' the gas, which is
produccq in encountering tbe
shale ami salt water below ithe Os

of miles, r The large 1 amount of
ga3 absorbed by the 'water is giv

the gasf does not decrease when
being di-awn upon. The ) bureau
bellevesj that until many thou
sands ot wells have been- drilled
the decrease of the shale gas sup

Approximately 500 wells are
producing shale gas, some of them

Helpful Suggestions for the J
IN the old days It was the way
to keep trying- oat new recipes
for different kinds of cakes. . But
the best of modern : cooks have
taught that .this is a poor; custom.
The modern' method la to secure &
standard recipe and ; then ' adapt
that to the various, needs or de
sires of the family, changing Its
shape or its frosting or its flavor,
but always when possible adhering
to tn Dane recipe.
I Thus it is possible to make plain
cake, cocoanut cake, marble cake
drop cakes of different flavor and
many other varieties all from the
beet possible basic recipe. The
ingredients must be of the best
quality. Patent flour is used and
rich milk, the freshest of eggs, and
tho most delightful of flavoring.
Here is the general recipe from
which all the other . adaptations

Shale gas comes from the tub

standing separator, the gas going
out of the top and the water re
turning to a connection at the
bottom of tho separator, through
a pipe line, thence into the big
hole between tbe drive .pipe and

that shale gas contains 98.3 per
