BUFFALO HERDS GROWING
Those whohave thought of
America as disappearing will be interested to learn that
early in June the Canadain government will ship 1100 more
buffalo," principally year-olds, from Wainwright national
park to the Mackenzie river district in the north, as has been
done in the past three years. A quarter of a century ago,
anxious to save the buffalo from extinction, the Canadian
government bought a herd of 715 from Montana and estab
lished Wainwright park. Within a few years, the -herd
grew to so many thousands that a slaughter was necessary,
and buffalo meat came on to the market. Then the scheme
of shipping the surplus animals north was adopted and
found to be very satisfactory. Plans are nearly completed
for the extension of the Wainwright park boundaries to the
jma m e v a a . , a
Canadian iNationai Kanway
their way to and from Jasper national park and the Pacific
coast may glimpse the herd from the windows of their train.
Here is question that is frequently addressed by the
laity to the writers of editorials: "How do you manage to
find something to write about every day?" Let us answer
that question and answer it frankly. We write about some
thing worth while if we can find something worth while
to write about, and if not, we do the next best thing. The
next best thing, sometimes, is to write tommyrot.
A current example of WTiting tommyrot is provided by an
editor who gets all steamed up over the fact that color has
come into the kitchen. He waxes particularly lyric over red
dishpans. We had always that blue is the proper color for
a dishpan. At any rate, too much association with dishpans
is apt to give the housewife the blues.
But our hero of the editorial pen doesn't entirely lose his
poise in the presence of Jhe vermilion pan. He senses that
in its very allurement there is an element of danger ancLso,
true to his calling, he sounds a warning. He says : "But
beware of too much red. The reds and oranges are lovely,
but they need to be handled with care. Small doses are
enough. Too much stimulus makes for weariness, and the
weariness of nerve exhaustion may be hard to cure because
its causes are not suspected."
That is where the tommyrot comes in. It isn't the color
of the dishpan that brings nervous exhaustion to our good
housewives. It's the everlasting persistence of the darned
thing. Give the lady of the house a good electric dishwash
er, brother, and it may be cerise, or scarlet, or brilliant or
ange, or even sky blue pink, and she will manage somehow to
ward off the "weariness of nerve exhaustion."

that there has been a little loss
of bees in this part of the state
feed some of their bees: especially
those brought from California for
the pollination of the orchard
These bees, and others, started
off very well with the fair weather
of a few weeks ago, and the queens
in consquence laid their eggs free
ly. The nursing of the young bees
takes more feeding than at a later
stage. When the heavy rains came
on, in the last spell of wetness, the
bees in such hives would have
starved; but for the feeding. They
could not get out in the heavy
rains and gather honey.
Mr. Mead said last night, too,
that in this condition the bees
could not be effective in the pol
lination of the fruit blossoms. He
has .heard fears expressed for the
consequences to the cherries, but
he is not certain that the cherries
or other fruits have suffered.
The weather prediction for to
day is fair east , portion, cloudy
west portion, and rain in the
northwest portion. This may mean
most anything for the Salem dis
trict. Let it be hoped that it means
fair weather, a condition very
much needed right now.

tions for the building.
Delayed Over Yar
Construction of thi unit was
deferred by the board until this
time hoping that the expenditure
might be avoided during this bi
ennial period In view of the short
age, of finances.
At a recent meeting of the
board the crowded condition of the
institution in Salem, and the one
in Pendleton, was brought to its
attention by Dr. R. E. Lee Steiner,
superintendent. He was request
ed to submit facts and figures of
the present condition, and future
need of the Institution.
The action just taken for the
immediate construction of the new
unit will provide for the accom
modation of 168 additional pa
tients, and the board decided that
it would be necessary to construct
the building Immediately due to
the following facts submitted to
the board by Dr. Steiner:
"First: The maximum capacity
even under crowded conditions, of

The population of this hospital to

and on December I. 1917, lo3 pa

"Now, let us remember that we
have six more months to go to
complete this present blennlum.
This will undoubtedly add a con
siderable increase of numbers.
Had these 242, patients not been
transferred to the Eastern Oregon
state hospital, where legislative
provision had been made, we
would have had that number ad

which would have made over 2000

Indeed, an intolerable and dis

which the helpless patients and
the public m,ust suffer.

the case of this city and the Salem
district, the children cannot know
too much about their unusual op

If the growing generation here
can be brought to fully realize
what may be done with Salem and
the surrounding country, this
knowledge will do more than any
other one thing in having the
