The use of water for irrigation

To stimulate endeavor along this
line, let the city offer some induce-'

example, why would It not be a good
plan to give a prize of $50 for tho

AN ANTI-CIGARETTE CRUSADE.
Spokane Is waging an antl-cigaretto
crusade. The schools of that city
have taken the matter up in earnest.
It Is no longer a matter of mere
sentiment. Uuslness men, railroad
companies and other emplowers of la
bor are discriminating against the
cigarette fiend. He Is not so alert nor
has ho the stamina of tho boy whose
senses have not been dulled by the
insidious poison inhaled with the
smoke of the cigarette. Besides in
, juring the physical well-being of a
I growing boy, It blunts his finer sen
slblllties. No better proof of this
statement is needed than the fact
that a boy, otherwise thoughtful ami
well-bred, will smoke where tho
I fumes may be offensive to others. It

TOO MUCH PUBLICITY.
The public will be heartily glad
when the Hurdlck-Peunell ense Is end

public gaze. It is bad enough that
trail humanity should prove recreant
to sacred marriage vows and trail
their honor In the dust, but it adds
no honor to the shameful record of
man's duplicity and woman's weak
ness to have the details of their fall
from virtue's nnnow way blazoned
forth for public delectation. What
that old Roman satnrlst, Juvenal, said
1800 years ago still holds good:

Scott's Emulsion is a wonderful food; it
furnishes a great deal of nourishment though you
take so little of it. That little enables the body to

gain flesh he is getting the upper hand.
