SHANGHAI CITY SURRENDES
Final Stand at Hwangtu Finally Crum
ples Armistice Effective.
Shanghai. After a final stand at
Hwangtu, 15 miles west of Shanghai,
the Chekiang troops defending the
city against onslaughts of armies back
ed by the Chinese central government
at last have admitted their defeat.
Foreign observers in the Sungkiaug
sector reported Tuesday morning that
an armistice was arranged at 5 P. M.
Monday, after which both sides ceas
ed firing. Advance guards of the re
treating Chekiang troops arriving from
the Hwangtu, Kitting and Liuho sec
tors declared similar arrangements
had been perfected there.
Apparently Chang Tse-Ping, G0-year-(dd
battler who refused to accept the
decision of other Chekiang chiefs to
surrender, was forced to give in after
his final brilliant attack, in which
his 4000 troops forced some of the
hottest fighting of the entire war.
About 1000 Chekiang soldiers from
the battle fronts directly west of the
city had arrived at Shanghai Tuesday
morning, at the north railway station.
Forty-three carloads more were report
ed held at Chenju, five miles west of
the city, while 10,000 were said to be
awaiting transportation at Hansiagn,
12 miles west, and at Hwangtu.
All of the Chekiang soldiers station
ed at Liuho, 30 miles to the northwest
on the Yangtze coast, were reported
The discipline of the defeated troops
was generally good, it was reported,
despite their complete ignorance of
where they were going or what they
were supposed to do.
Heavy naval, police and volunteer
guards patrolled the borders of the
foreign settlements throughout the
eight, and no one was permitted to
enter or leave them.
Persistent report! were circulated
that Lu Yuang-Hsiang, commander-in-
chief of th(! defeated Chekiang armies,
and Ho Feng Ling, military commis
sioner of Shanghai, and General Lu's
aide, had fled to Japan, but verifica
tion of the reports was not obtainable.

RECLAIM MANY ACRES
All Declared Likely to Succeed Finan

Washington, D. C Three new irri
gationgation projects for Oregon are
approved by a commissiofl appointed
under the terms of the report of the
fact-finding commission. These pro
jects are the Baker in Baker county
and the Owyhee and the Vale In Mal
heur counties, embracing morn than
170,000 acres of land.
These projects had previously been
recommended as feasible from the
engineering standpoint, but doubt was
left as to whether they would prove
an economic, agricultural and finan
cial success. Tho reports open the
way for the secretary of the interior
to recommend to congress the appro
priation of money to start construc
Tho Vale project was investigated
by i'rofessor W. L. Powers, soil tech
nologist of the Oregon Agricultural
college; W. S. McLuughliu, irrigation
Investigator, and G. 11. Hogues of the
United States bureau of reclamation.
A local committee, consisting of Ralph
Holte, I). Biggs and J. H. H. Dear-
mond .all of Vale, assisted the committee.
In recommending the Vale project
the committee declared that the laud
was mainly sage brush benches be
tween JamleiOB and Malheur canyon
and Harper bench, having an area of
28,350 acres with an estimated gross
annual crop return, after irrigation,
f about $35 a acre.
Thirty-eight per cent of the land
is held by two land companies, it is
pointed out, with 15 per cent public
land an dthe remaining land owned
by individuals in tracts of 40 to 640
Ninety per cent of the lands will
require subdivision and settlement
lad will provide farms for 250 or 300
families. The board recommends that
(he land held in private ownership
shall be upraised and selling prices
fixed before development is started.
In order to avoid inflation of prices
the appraisal should bo made a pari
of a contract between the land owners
aud an irrigation district formed with
a definite contract to control land
The committee reported settlement
as the fundamental problem of the
Va'o protect aud recommended long
time credit to new settlers; the ap
pointment of a competent agricultural
1st to bo employed to aid and assist
settlers, the fixing of the price by
the secretary of the interior at which
excess holdings nre to be disposed of
by settlers; clearing ami preparing a
portion of each farm unit by the gov
ernment prior to settlement ; selection
of settlers according to experience,
capital and other characteristics;
formation ot one irrigation system to
include all lands in the proposed project.
Food Cost! Working Up.
Washington, D. C. Increases in re
tail food prices in the month ending
September 15 ranging up to 3 per cent
was shown In all but one of 21 cities
for which figures were announced Sat
urday by tho bureau of labor statis
tics of the department of labor.
Butte, Mont., with a decrease of
1 per ient was tho only exception to
the general increase.
Eighteen of the 21 cities showed
decreases for the year ending Septem
ber 15 ranging up to 5 per cent!

White Doe at Nedonna.
Nedouna ,Or. A snow-white doe
visited Nedonna early Saturday. In

The doe, almost exhausted, trotted

THE average love affair begins with
a kiss of experiment, and ends
with a sigh of relief.
The attitude of a man toward a girl
has changed from a ilea to a dare
from "Let me kiss you!" to "Make me
kiss you If you can '."
Men, according to the modern girl's
philosophy, are merely a side-line.
Still, they are the only thing there is
to flirt with, dance with, fall In love
with or marry; and that'! all they
have to be, after all.
It Is alway! blossom time In the
heart of a woman who Is loved and
alwpys May time in the heart of a
man who Is In love.
Men have n funny code, all their
own. A cowpuncher is ashamed to be
seen In an evening cout ; an ex-bartender
blushes to be caught serving
soda water ; and a married man hates
to be caught buying flowers for his
own wife. Yet, all of these things are
Every man want! a woman to ap

to pick flaws In her housekeeping, It
