Irrigation In the West Is manifest
ly on the up-trend.
Tho first boom In building largo
Irrigation works at tho West was at
Its height 15 years ago. The Invest
ment was then very popular and
Eastern and foreign money readily
responded to tho call of the promot
ers. With only a few exceptions
ovcry Western state and territory re
ceived the benefits of this expendi
ture. Dut this development proved dis
appointing on the side of coloniza
tion. It was found that nrld land.
worthless without water, was still
without practical valuo after tho wa
ter had been Drovlded unless thero
was a man thero to till tho soil. And
this man did nit come In sullicieni
As an Investment, Irrigation lapsed
Into unpopularity ana tho active
eamnalcn of reclamation by means
of private enterprise came to an end,
Since then two tnings nave nappen
Tho tido of settlement has caught
up with Irrigation. There is now but
little vircln soil onon to the home'
seeker except In tho valleys of the
arid region. Furthermore, tho people
have become educated as to tno mer
its of the irrigated farm. Thev un
derstand whnt It means to have their
crops Insured by tho ditch. They ap
preciate tho advantages of self-sufficiency
and of near neighbors offer-
el by the small, diversified irrigated
farm. So they aro moving into nil
tho places prepared for them by tho
enterprise of other years.
California Is getting many of tnem.
Hut Just how many will not bo known
until another census is taken. The
railroads report that thoy brought
350.000 people to California during
1903, of whom only 90,000 had return
One hopeful report comes from the
nowiy-reclalmcd desert In tho eastern
part of San Diego county. On January 1 Smythe.
1, J'.iOl, there was not a single white
mnn In tho neighborhood. On Janu
nry 1, 1902, thero was only a camp
of a dozen surveyors. January
1903, saw a population of about 2,000
while January 1. 1904. finds nbout b
000 on tho ground. They aro still
coming very rapidly and another
year Is likely to disclose an oven
larger gain.
Tho beautiful Yakima Valley In
Eastern Washington is witnessing
similar growth. Indeed, this holds
tvuo of many parts of tho Pacific
Northwest drained by the Columbia
river and Its tributaries, including
Eastern Oregon and Southern Idaho.
The Rocky mountain states are
finding a strong demand for their ir
rlgated lands. Wyoming, Colorado,
Utah and New Mexico aro gaining
recruits very rapidly. And, perhaps,
more encouraging than nnythlng else
Is the nctivlty of settlement In tho
long-neglected state of Novada. Hall
road and mining development have
much to do with It, but Novada Is al
so the beneficiary of tho general
movement of population to Irrigated
Tho lesson of all this is that the
Inauguration of tho new national ir
rlgatlon policy is well-timed and that
the duty or saving the public, lands
for actual settlers presses urgently
upon congress. It can no longer be
claimed that tho people do not crave
homes in tho West. They arc clam
orlng at the doors of this great em
nlre and every aero that tho govern
ment shall reclaim will bo promptly
taken by those who aro ready to cul
tlvnte the soli In good faith.
If we have needed the speculator
in the past as a sort of advance agent
of prosperity wo need him no longer.
The land laws under which ho has
grown rich should be repealed and a
true homestead law put in place of
them, so that no one except the ac
tual settler can get possession of
this public property. William E.

"Tho establishment at Portland of
a bondell warehouso for tho United
States internal revenue service,"
said David M. Dunne, colector for
the district to the Oregon Dally
Journal, "will fill a much needed

Portland and the state. The internal
revenue service has no bonded ware

Further than the notification that
a warehouse Is to bo -established at
Portland, Collector Dunne has re
ceived no Information regarding tho
Institution and Is, therefore, not in a
position lo give out particulars.
"It will bo for the solo purpose of
storing liquors and wines, subject to
tax," ho said.
Throughout the country bonded
warehouses are fow In number. In
Kentucky, whero n great deal of
whisky Is distilled, there are several.

Asldo from tho payment of storage

funds that otherwlso would have to

liquors that aro aging aro stored in
a bonded warehouse.
Asldo from allowing tho producer
tho uso of the rovenuo money until
his liquor Is ready for tho market,
tho bonded warehouso is a tcstfmonl
al of tho purity of tho goods. The
term "bottled in bond" is used by the.

Traveling Man Dumbfounds Clerk In

queer vicissitudes of tho avorago

A traveler camo to tho hotel this

Eczema, the most common and terrible of all skin
troubles, begins sometimes with a slight redness of the
skin, which gradually spreads, and as the inflammation and
itching increase, the entire system is thrown into a restless.
ievensn condition, ooon nme watery blisters or
pimples break out, from which a clear liquid or
yellow fluid is discharged, which forms thick crusts
and sores, or falls off in fine particles or scales,
leaving the skin raw and tender, or hard and dry
like parchment. Eczema attacks most frequently
the legs and arms, back and chest, face and hands,
and is a disease that comes and goes in the earlier
stages, but is a perpetual torment and constant
annoyance when chronic. At times the itching and
stinging is so great that the sufferer, driven almost
to distraction and fortured beyond endurauce,
scratches and rubs till the skin is broken and bleeds;
but this only aggravates and spreads the disease.
The humors and poisons that produce the itching eruption, roughness and redness of the
skin, must be rooted out before there is complete relief from the terrors of Eczema.
Nothing applied externally does any permanent good, for whenever the blood is overheated,
or the skin is reacting during Spring and Summer, the disease breaks out again. You
can't rely upon washes, soaps and salves, or such tnings as are applied to the surface, for
they do not reach the seat of the trouble, which is internal and deeply implanted in the
system ; the blood is aflame with the itching, burning humors, which are carried by the
circulation to the surface and are being constantly forced out through the glands and pores
of the skin, and you can never heal the sores or stop .the aggravating eruptions with ex
ternal applications.
lo neutralize the acids 111 the blood and expel the humors and poisons is the only wav
to get permanently rid of this torturing skin trouble, and no remedy known does this so
quickly and thoroughly as S. S. S. It purifies the blood and restores it to health, and the
outbreak of the poison through the skin ceases, and the sores and eruption gradually
disappear. S. S. S. builds up the thin acid blood, makes it rich and strong, and restores
to it all the elements of nutrition, and drives from the circulation all impurities; and
under the tonic effect of S. S. S. the general system is invigorated and toned up, and you. '
not only get rid of j-our old skin trouble, but the health is benefited in every way. S. S. 8.
being a strictly vegetable medicine, acts gently, leaving
no bad after-effects, as do Arsenic, Potash and other
minerals which are usually prescribed in skin diseases.
Eczema cannot be cured by anything applied to the
surface of the body; the blood must be purified and the
cause removed, and in no other way can this deep-seated
skin disease be reached. If you have Tetter, Psoriasis,
Salt Rheum, Nettle Rash, or any form of Eczema, you
will find S. S. S. does its work well and thoroughly, and relieves the itching and burning,
soreness and pain, and soon produces a lasting cure.
