Of High School
The outbreak of a case of small
pox caused a sudden flurry at the
high school Tuesday. Thorough fum
igation of school rooms ana the vac
cination of all persons who had been
in contact with the patient were the
measures resorted te in order to pre
sent general spread of the disease
and closlne. of the school. Due to the
pretupt measures taken, city and
school health authorities are satis
fied' tha danger of general contagion
has been obviated.
Two cases of smallpox have been
reported during the present week and
while general vaccination Is not com
pulsory, it is pointed, out by the
health authorities that needless ex
pense, exposure of other individuals
and interference with school work
and employment could be avoided if
all persons would give more thought
to the general good results obtained
from modern day immunisation methods.
Dr. C. E. Cashatt, county health of
ficer, states that there seems to be
a noticeable tendency on the part of
some physicians to avoid the report
ing of Influenza cases in country dis
tricts. This is required by law altho
it does not impose as stringent a
quarantine as is necessary in the
city, where opportunities for conta
gion ore more numerous. County
health officials are also investigating
reports that caws of the more con
tagious diseases, smallpox and scar
let fever have not been quarantined
or reported in rural districts. To what
extent these reports are true, has not
yet been ascertained.

In Big Irrigation
An organization of the directors of
the various Deschutes river irrigation
projects and the harmonizing ot all
interests included in thn liiir Den-
chutes project is urged by State En
gineer Cupper in a letter to Fred N.
Wallace, project manairer of the Tu-
malo project. The Tumulo project is

office as in a position to ourtlelimte

clude the lands In the west unit which
would make four districts in a posi
tion to UUrtiuloate In thn pimnti-nf

Cupper calls attention to the fact
that all water rights and public land
rights required in connection with the
Deschutes project are in the hands of
the state and federal government and
that no undue advautago can be se
cured by one unit over another In
the distribution of these rights.
Success of the project, he insists,
can only be attained through hearty
cooperation between all interests affected.

While we know very little more
about tho flu bow than we did lust

positively identified still most au
thorities agree that the. flu germs are
breathed in. If the system is in good
shape and the membrane or lining
of the air passages is in healthy con

times a day, especially just before

colds irritate the lining of the air
passages and make them real breed
ing grounds for germs. Prompt use
of Vlck'a VapoRub aids in prevent
ing colds. For head colds, sore throat
or hoarseness, rub Vicks well over the
throat and chest and cover with a
warm flannel cloth. For deep chest
colds, severe sore throat or bronchi
tis, hot wet towels should first be
applied to the throat, chest and back
between the shoulder blades to open
tho pores. Then Vicks should be rub

t'se of External Treatment for Colds
Vlck's VapoRub is the discovery of
a North Carolina druggist who found
how to combine in salve form, the
standard time tested remedies, Cam
phor Menthol Eucalyptus- Thyme
etc. so that when the salve Is ap
plied to the body hoat, these ingredi
ents are liberated In the form of va
Vicks is particularly recommend
ed for children's croup or colds, since
it is externally applied and therefore
can be used freely and often without
the slightest harmful effects.
The best evidence of tho value of
Vicks is the steadily increasing num
ber of people who have been convert
ed to the uso of this "outside" treat
ment. Beginning with the customers of a
small retail drug store, the use of
Vicks has grown year by year state
by state until now more than 17
million jars are used annually. And
this in spite of tho.gact that Vicks is
a new form of treatment to many
folks in the north and west. Vicks
can be had at all druggists in three
sizes 30c, 60c and $1.20. (Adv)

S. H. Van Trump, county horticul

the Willamette valley which is hurt
ful to this regian, to say the least.
One investor- inquires if the yield
of 30 pounds of English walnuts
from a five acre walnut tract in the
valley is "reasonable." The letter
states that the writer had purchased
such a tract of 11-year old trees near
Salem and has "expended consider
able money in care taking" and that
the caretakers had reported the crop
as given. Mr. Van Trump is uncer
tain as to the intent of the letter.
whether as an error or a hoax, but
has replied to the effect that the yield
for each tree should equal the total
yield given for the tract, that is for
good trees of this age, a yield of 30
pounds of nuts should be expected.
