Act, ;he state land board is authorized
to enter into such contracts with cor-

as may bo necessary to Induce and
cause reclamation of arid lands. No
appropriation was made under this
law, and the state Is prohibited from
a8SUmIng any labty for work under
sam0i t)l0 jtent0n being for the
state to assign its authority or rights
to Individuals or corporations. Under
the foregoing, the state land board
has, I believe, already entered Into
contrilctfl witn tnreo or tollr corpora-
yons, but sufficient time has not yet
elapsed, 1 understand, to enable any
of these corporations to begin thu ac
tual work of constructing ot the
ditches, hut a considerable amount of
money has been expended by thorn for
surveys and other necessnry preliml
nary work. Under the contract be
tween the state and these Irrigation
companies, the latter Is compelled to
thoroughly Irrigate and reclaim the
land in accordance with tho require
ments of the secretary of the Interior,
"The irrigation compnnles have a
lieu on the land for the cost of re
clamatlou, tho amount being Used In
the contract with the state. The land
must be sold to bouu fide settlers In
tracts of not more than 160 ncros to
one person, Any person purchasing
a tract of this irrigated laud secures
from the Irrigation company a release
of the Hon for reclamation, files the
same with the state, and deed of con
veyanee Is executed to the settler
from the state. It will be noted the
title to the land under the Carey Act
passes from the United States govern
ment to the state, then directly to the
settler, and ls never In the name of
the Irrigation company.
"Despite tho fact that this state is
materially behind some ot our sister
states in irrigation works, Oregon pre
sents some of the most favorable
fields for such enterprises. The Pow
der river valley In Uaker county, the
vicinity of Wallowa lnko, in Wallowa
county, and Umatilla county as well as
Malheur, Harney ntul Crook counties,
present practicable and profitable
fields for work of this kind. Along
tho Deschutes river the best districts
have already been set aside under th
Cnry Act, and that section bids fair
to bo promptly reclaimed therefore, by
private enterprise. Tho entire state
east of the Cascade mountains pre
sents many practicable irigatlon pro
jects only awaiting the introduction
of capital to bring them into a con
dition where they will support a large
population. Population of a desirable
sort ls tho most crying need of this
statu today, and every project which
will tend to add to the nuber of our
citizens, particularly to the number
of producers, should be welcomed and

he died he was a republican.

A MILD CASE
Of ContJiious Blood Poison never exis
ted. It is always bad, though sometimes
no external symptoms of the disease ap
pear for a long time.
Because the disease is slow in devel
oping does not indicate that the case is
a mild one, for the poisonous virus at
work in the blood and system mav be
spending its force upon some internal
vital organ while you are looking for ex-1
ternal signs. Contagious Uloou roisou 1
does not affect all alike. In most cases
the first little sore is quickly followed bv
uainful swellings in the groins, a red
eruption upon the body, sore or ulcers
in the mouth and throat, unsightly copper
colored blotches, loss of hair and eye
brows and other symptoms of this miser
able disease. When the poison is thu-.
fighting its way to the surface, exposing
the disease iu all its liideousuess, we cull
it a bad case; but Contagious Blood Poi
son, whether working internally or exter-
ually, is a dangerous, treacuerous uisease.
S. S. S. is the only remedy that cures
Contagious Blood Poison thoroughly and
permanently. It is an antidote for the
deadly virus that produces the awful
eruptions, sores and ulcers, and destroys
tne bones. Mercury ana i"otasu ury up
the skin eruptions, but in so doing drive
the poison further into the system, where
it slumbers for a time, but comes back
again with redoubled fury.
S. S. S. is a vegetable remedy that has
been used successfully for years in treat
.ingthisvilediseaseaud k curesitinallstagesand
forms. If you have the
m slightest symptom ; an
occasional sore mouth,
pains, your blood is tainted and the disease
is liable to break out again at any time.
A course of S. S. S. will remove every
trace of poison and at the same time
build up your general health.
