RESULTS FROM IRRIGATION.
Horo Is a brief description of tho
benefits of Irrigation In Montana. It

Did you over think of tho
fact thnt, on all sides, we are
constantly touching our fellow-
beings? For good or for ovll,
others are continually effect-
ed by what we do, say, think,
feel and nre. If we place a
bouquet of flowers on a tablo in
a room, tho fragrance soon
fills the whole atmosphere.
An odor, whether good or bad,
Is at once detected If we ap-
proach tho substance from
which It emanates. In like
manner we are each of us j
silently saturating the ntmos-
phero about us with the subtle
aroma of our character. In o
the family circle, besides and
beyond all teaching, the dally
life of each member mysterl-
ously modifies the life of every
person In the household. The
same process, but on a wider
scale, goes on throughout tho
community. No man llveth to
himself, no man dleth to him-
self. Others are built up and
strengthened by our uncon-
scions actions or thoughts,
while still others may be
wrenched out of shape and
thrown prostrate because of
some malign, though uncon-
scions influence thrown out
from ourselves. Will M. Mau-
pin, in the Commoner.
As soon as tho water was turned In
the ditch tills land was put on the
market at 200 per acre, on five years'
time, tho purchaser paying 10 per
cent of the purchase price down, and
the balance in CO equal monthly pay
ments. There was no difficulty In ills
posing of the land at this price.
Some of tho owners of live-acre
tracts are now getting as much as
11500 each y.ear from the sale of tho
products of their forms, ljist year 10
acres of tills land sold for $:1I100, the
same tract having boon sold for $2000
The success of the first ditch was
so pronounced that another and larg
or Irrigation system costing $19,000,
was constructed to reclaim tho bal
ance of the tract. It has practically
all been sold at from $150 to $200 per
acre since the ditch was finished. As
an illustration of what water will do
on .Montana laud, tills is probably ns
good an example as can be furnished.
In 1900 there were but four farms
of 21S5 acres, Today there nr.e 400
families living In prosperity and con

which in other sections of the country
would not be considered ns fair-sized

The Oregon women's suffragists are
beginning slowly to prepare for an
other trial of equal suffrage. Their
persistence, like that of the prohibi
tionists, will finally result In triumph,
It Is thought by observant politicians.
Three yenrs ago, the idea of Oregon
carrying for a strictly prohibition
measure, would have been hooted to
the echo.. Times change, thought
changes, public sentiment changes,
and no man can judge the future by
the past, or even by Its nearer neigh
bor, the present.
Umatilla county will be represented
by at least 30 delegates nt the mass
meeting to be held in Portland on
August 2 and 3 for tno purpose of or
ganizing the Oregon Development
League. The city council will tonight
appoint 10 delegates from tho city of
Pendleton. The Commercial Associ
ation and the county nre already rep
resented by 10 each. As the rail
roads have made a ono faro rate for
that occasion, It Is hoped that every
man appointed will nttend. It will
show tlie proper friendly feeling to
ward Portland, which will result in
more determined effort on tho part of
that city, to help Eastern Oregon,
when occasion arises. It Is not an
Idle mission. It means something
that will bear fruition, perhaps not
tomorrow, nor this year, hut which
will grow Into a ripened friendship,

Another effect of the altitude anil
tomnornturo was the difficulty In tho
operation of the magazines of tho ri
fles and mechanism of the Maxim
guns on account of tho congealing of
tho oil, which lost Its lubrlcnting
properties. This could have be
remedied by supplying glycerine f

WHO IS YOUR BOSS?
Perhaps no other city In the North
we3t Is so nearly deserted by bus!
ness men, families, employes and all
classes of people during the hot
weather as Pendleton. Half of tho
offices aro working "short handed
tho business houses have doubled up
tho duties to permit the employes to
go to tho coast, one at a time, and
everybody makes excuses for being
so busy because of absence of help,
that life is made strenuous for a
couple of months, while the sea shore
and the mountains arc beckoning.
This wholesalo pleasure seeking
wholesale vacation, Is ono of tho
surest indications of prosperity among
all classes. In towns of less business
activity, less push, less life and virile
commercial spirit, this practice does
not prevail to such an extent.
So far as is known now, J. A
Borle, president of tho Commercial
Association of this city, is tho only
man In Eastern 'Oregon, In a position
61 this kind, -who Is taking. an active
part In collecting .exhibits to advertise
the .resources of the state. Sir. Borle,
In (the capacity of president of the
Commercial association, has" been
working quietly, through friends In
different portions of Umatilla county
to collect a modest agricultural .ex
hibit of our resources for tho Ore
gon Information Bureau, in Portland.
Whllo ho lias tho moral support of
ovorybody he has been pursuing tho
work alono, and deserves tho grati
tude and prnlso of tho county for his
public-spirited effort. The farmers of
Umatilla county nro Invited to co

resources of this county, which has a
world wide reputation.
That Pendleton Is one of the best
horse markets In tho Northwest, Is
proved by the number of sales made
In this city during tho past month.
As near as can bo learned, 115 head
of heavy work horses have been sold
here since June 10, the prices ranging
from $C5 to $125, according to the
size of tho horse. Some of this stock
has been driven overland from Wal
lowa county, a distance of 145 miles,
some from (Srant county, some from
Union and a largo number from
Southern Umatilla. The farming
communities tributary to Pendleton,
use good horses and will buy no
other kind and thoso contemplating a
sale of horses here must bear this in
mind. Not only does tho farming In
terests demand good horses, but a
largo number of tho best teams to bo
found in any city In Oregon are used
dally on Pendleton's streets In handl
ing tho Immense traffic of tho city.
