among those present.
Mrs. T. H. Wells, past presi

and toastmistress, believed there
was no tendency on the part of
Oregon women to drop out of
the national organization, but that
she believed they thought the
work in their own home, town
more important, especially now
when such work was Just start
ing. The girls in the western
states as a rule do not draw large
salaries, the speaker pointed out,
and heavy dues are a great bur
den to many, especially to those
who most need the stimulus and
fftcouragement of such an organ
ization as the Business and Pro-
I tt feesional Woman's club.

to confer with the other north
western states in regard to the
question of national dues and to
present their opinion at the next

In the afternoon, the party went

product 99 per cent pure, that is,
calcium carbonate; thought it
costs the state, loaded on the cars
at the quarry, $1.25 a tdh, and
$2.05 a ton freight to the prison
plant. Lime is calcium carbonate,
and that is what lands of the Wil
lamette valley and coast counties
need to sweeten the soil. The
impurities of lime deposits are of
no benefit to the farmers.
As to Possibility
Now, as to the opening sentence
of this article. Prof. Livingstone
found at the quarry of the Oregon
Portland Cement company, on
land next to the Muck farm, a
sheer wall of lime rock perhaps
50 foot high. The limo rock has
been blasted ar-aj' to thib depth

The above hunter, shown clearing the dining table at the
Pacific Coast Dental Conference in Portland, this summer, is
one of the popular entries at the night horse show at the
state fairgrounds this year. Flying Fox, the most extraordin
ary jumper in the Held stables, in taking the picnic board as
a hurdle, covers almost 24 feet from take-off to landing in
this spectacular leap. .
itely, there is about 20 feet of red
soil. It looks like- the soil of the
red hills of the Willamette valley,
which are extensive.
Well, Prof. Livingstone found
that this red soil was not formed
from volcanic ash, as it has always
been thought the red hills soils of
the valley were formed, some mil
lions of years ago. The soil above
the lime rock of the quarry there
has been formed by the settling
down of the lime rock, leaving this
soil residue, made red by a small
quantity of iron rust or ore that
was witli the lime rock when it
was forming formed perhaps by
the washing up by the ocean waves
of shell fish or other sea fish in
the long ago when Oregon was
two islands, as told in the book
of Prof. Thomas Condon. "The
Two Islands." (When the Cas
cades and the Coast Range were
the two islands and all of what is
now the Willamette valley was a
partfof the great ocean.)
The inference is that the red
hills soil-of the Willamette valley
may be underlaid by lime rock
billions of tons of it.
Prof. Livingstone does not say
this. He is very chary about being
quoted as saying it. But he is
certain that trie red soil over the
lime rock in the quarry,vthii,

near Falls City was formed as a

May Do Some Boring.
Any way, with this very 'thing
in mind, there will likely be some
boring in the red hillj lands near
Salem, by the managers of the
state lime plant at the prison. Per
haps there are people in these red
hills sections who can give some
testimony on the matter. Th"
lime rock of this section looks like
most any other rock, a id a termer
might bore a well 100 feet deep,
all the way through lime rock,
excepting the first 20 feet or so.

exception. There was a large en

new enrollments each day. This

promise of being a banner enroll
