A will have a summer camp at
Lost Creek ranch above McKenzie
Bridge beginning August 1, after
the boys' camp is over, according
to announcement of E. A. Britton,
physical director of the associa

than members of the association
will be invited to participate If
The same equipment used by
the boys will be left at the camp
for the women, says Britton, and
It is probable that the same hikes
and about the same program was
outlined for the boys will be car
ried out by the women.
Britton says that by the time
the boys begin their first camp
June 15 the snow around Lost
Lake and other localities for miles
about will have disappeared. He
was up there last Sunday and
found but little snow. Smith Tay

"There is some danger that the

county, through a change in the
channel of the Willamette river,
will be left a mile or more Inland.
This danger is not immediate, and
fortunately it is of a kind which

endeavor to stop a cut off which
the river often took in the time
of high water.

Flood Waters Reported Receding
Denver, uoio., June 4. Water
in the union station at Pueblo,
Colo., flooded by waters from the
Arkansas river, was receding this
morning, according to a brief tele

llenver and Rio Grande railroad
cumpauy utile uum l i ucuiu
agent, who filed the message from
Larkspur, Colo., 60 miles south
of Denver. All wire communica

oft since last night.
The message said the water
reached its high mark at Pueblo
at 10 o'clock last night when
there was 9 feet 6 inches in the
union depot. All lights and tele
phone were out of service.
First Train Arrives
The first train to reach Denver
from Pueblo today was Santa Fe
number 64, which arrived here at
8 o'clock this morning. The train
was due at 9:15 p. m. last night
but was tied up at Colorado
Springs. The train left Pueblo at
6:45 p. in. just as the flood waters
were beginning to overflow levees
along the streams. Passengers
described the flood as the worst
they had ever seen there.
At 4 a. m. the message said the
water in the Pueblo depot stood
at 3 feet 6 inches, a drop of six

june 4. The women students of

creased in weight, in health, and,
as a consequence, in scholarship,
by following out the program of
Dr. Bertha Stuart Dyment, Uni
versity health physician. "Col

their parents, because they are
still growing, and because they
are more active," she says.
"The vitamines and other
growth stimulating properties are
found especially in green veget

green vegeiaoies unu uuuci, umnj
and eggs should torni a part oi

day is probably entirely sufficient.
"Breakfast, instead of consist
ing of a piece of toast a cup of
coffee, or a piece of toast eaten
on the - run to an eight oclock,
should be a 'sit down at the table
meal,' with time to eat, and
should be made up" of fruit, a
cooked cereal, toast, mil, butter,
"A thin soup, hot biscuits ana
jelly are not enough for a lunch

person. A thick soup, a main dish
of rice and cheese or macaroni,

or a salad, a real salad, and a
dessert of fruit or custard, or
custard puddings, and a glass of

vegetables or one other and a

proved in hundreds of cases.

Some days you'll see him, slowty, hesitatingly, feeling
his way. At other times he has a guide who quickly leads
him where he wants to go.
When you shop without advance knowledge of where
to go to get the best, you are feeling your way.
The advertisements in the newspapers are guides.
They will tell you where to go to get the best quickly.
And they are a guarantee of satisfaction. The con

He knows they are good he backs them with his money
because he believes they'll satisfy. Only merchandise
which is consistently good can be consistently advertised.
Read the advertisements and buy the advertised
products. Don't spend your money blindly. Get dollai s
