THE BIG FOUR
Mitchell, Fulton, Williamson,
and Hermann I What more can
Oregon want in the way of renre
sentation? If things do not come
our wav it will not be because we
have not been good to ourselves i
the matter of choosing able men to
look after the interests of our state
at the national Capitol. If the
knockers will keep their hands ol
or possibly in spite of them, th
state should in the next ten years
enjoy very beneficial results from
having these wise and efficient
leaders where they can do the most
eood. In such matters as river
and harbor improvements, artificia
propagation of fish, forest preserva
tion, irrigation and dozens of other
important questions relating
this state, and in all the great
affairs of other stales and of th
country at large the influence of
the Oregon legislators will be potent
But able legislators alone cannot
make a good state. It is high time
a lot of Oresonians woke up to th
fact that if this neck of the wood
is to take her rightful place in the
front rank it must be because of
the sterling qualities, the lively
enterprise and the manly and
womanly virtues of her citizens as
much as by reason of her great
natural resources. -Astonan.
BIG FLUME IS COMPLETED
Cheap and Easy Method of Trans
porting Lumber to Market.
The big flume of the Benton
County Lumber Company has
reached its terminus at the spur of
the 0. & E. railroad company nea
Philomath. Its construction began
about the 1st of March, and, ac
cordingly, has occupied about three
months of time, during which a
force of from 8 to 20 men has been
employed. It involved the use of
about 700,000 feet of lumber which
was cut at the mill and floated
down the flume as construction
proceeded. Its length is six and
three-fourths miles. The cost of
the flume is understood to have
been between $6,000 and $7,000
Its construction and operation
practically locates the big saw mil
of the company at the railroad aid
The flume has a capacity of 25,
000 feet per hour. I he mill cuts
about 30,000 per day. In an hour
and a half, the cut of the mill for
a whole day can be started on its
way to Philomath. It takes two
hours for a piece of lumber to go
from the mill to Philomath. Ac
cordingly in three and a half hours
after the first stick in a day's lum
ber cut is placed in the flume at
the mill, the last stick of the day's
cut is in rhilomath, having been
transported there by the action of
water at practically no expense.
The lumber floats along inside the
flume at the average rate of three
and a half miles an hour, a little
fjster than most men can walk. In
some places the speed is greater
than in others. Big timber makes
the passage of the flume even more
satisfactorily than do the smallest
pieces. Already there have been
sent through it eight by eight
sticks hity feet m length. The
flume is V shaped, with sides 24
inches deep. Its width across the
top is about 36 inches. Lumber
floats best when the flume is about
one-third full of water. The flume
is constructed entirely of sawed
lumber, and is first-class through
out, lwo or three small boys pa
tiol its length while lumber is run
ning to keep it free from jams.

CARNIVAL IS OVER
Big Show Comes to Successful Close
on Saturday Evening.
The W. O. W. Carnival came to a
close in a blaze of glory Saturday
night. The four days entertainment
attracted thousands of visitors to
Dallas during the week, and is voted
to be the most successful affair of its
kind ever given in the Willamette
The competitive drill between Wood
men teams from six Valley towns,
which was in nrocress as we went to
press last week, was won by Mon
mouth, Second place was awarded to
Amity. The prizes were $50 and $25,
respectively. The judges were J. M.
Woodworth, of Multnomah Camp No.
77; Herman Sleade, of No. 107, Port
land, and J. M. Cleurbman, Camp
The chief attraction Thursday was
the balloon ascenston and parachute
jump by Prof. Frank Miller. The bal
loon was cut loose at 11 o'clock in the
morning and made a beautiful flight
of 3500 feet. At this elevation the mon
ster air bag appeared as a mere speck
in the sky. When the daring aero
naut dropped from the balloon with
his parachute and descend grace
fully to the earth, the crowd applaud
ed wildly. The ascension was without
doubt one of the best ever made in
Saturday was Pioneer Day, and the
attendance compared favorably with
the three preceding days of the Carni
val. At 10 o'clock the procession was
formed on Main street. The Wood
men people did much to add to the
imposing appearance of the parade,
bringing in many features of the
The parade, headed by the Mon
mouth brass band and the orators of
the day, ex-Governor Geer and Hon.
W. H. Holmes, followed by the few
pioneers, Woodmen, Sheridan brass
band, citizens, etc., made a very im
posing display. The march was direct
to the city park, where the usual
ceremonies were had, and two fine
orations were delivered by the orators
of the day. The unique feature of the
day was the song and speech of John
Smith, a Grande Konde Indian, who
sang and spoke in jargon.
Hon. J. H. Hawley was re-elected as
president of the association, and J. W.
Lewis was re-elected secretary and
treasurer for the ensuing year. Hon
S. T. Burch and G. W. McBee were
appointed delegates to the State re
union to be held in Portland. The
executive committee elected by the
association is: G. W. McBee. of
Dallas : F. M. Collins, of Dallas, and
Hon. Geo. Myer, of Smithfleld.
The rocking chair, awarded to the
oldest couple, was won by Mr. and
Mrs. George Brown, of Dallas. The
chair given to the oldest individual
pioneer was awarded to Mrs. Eliza
Emmons, of Dallas. Eighty-seven
pioneers enrolled their names with
Secretary Lewis during the day. A
vote of thanks was given to Mrs,
H. H. Chace and her assistants for
the excellent musical program render
ed. In the absence of President
Hawley, William Grant was chosen
President of the Day.
The Fourteenth Annual Reunion of
the Polk Countv Pioneers was one of
the most enjoyable In the history of
the Association, the day being one of
unalloyed pleasure to all the old
A large number of people visited the
Carnival attractions in the afternoon,
and wore entertained by an excellent
performance by Mr. Arnold's com
pany. A feature of the afternoon
program was the Baby Show given in
the big tent. Fifteen babies were on
exhibition, and W. A. Wash, J. B
Smith and Prof. Horn, the only men
in the crowd with nerve enough to act
as judges, started down the line tode-
tannine which fond mamma's darling
was entitlod to the prize for good looks,
After a quarter of an hour of the
hardest work any of them ever did in
tholr lives, they finally mustered up
sufficient courage to announce their
decision. The lucky youngster re
ceiving the $10 cash prize given by
the Woodmen of the World was the
Infant son of Rev. and Mrs. J. It. G.
Saturday night was Confetti Night,
and tho big tent was packed almost to
suffocation. Dallas people turned out
full force at this performance,
many of the business men of the city
not having had an opportunity to at
tend the show during the week. Many
visitors were present from Inde
pendence and Monmouth. Mirth and
good-feeling reigned supreme, and a
general, old-fashioned neighborly
time was enjoyed. At the close of the
regular performance, tho big tout was
thrown open and the fun began. The
camels were brought out from the
menagerie, and the Arab drivers
gathered in a rich harvest of dimes
from those who wished to take a ride
around the tent on the ungainly old
ships of the desert." Confetti filled
the air, everybody, young and old, en
gaging in the pretty and harmless
pastime of showering their friends
and acquaintances with handfuls of
highly-colored paper cut in small bits.
There was no roughness or rude be-
avior, and innocent fun ran riot to a
degree never before witnessed in
Polk's capital town. At midnight the
big crowd filed slowly out of the tent,
and the Carnival was over.
As is the case in everything that
Dallas undertakes, the Carnival was
ell managed from the beginning,
and was carried through to a highly

successful termination. Thousands
of people were pleasantly entertained
during the four days; the merchants
of Dallas enjoyed a heavy increase in
business as a result of the festival
the town, was advertised abroad as
never before in its history ; the busi
ness relations between Mr. Arnold and
the managers of the Carnival were of
the most pleasant character, and
neat sum of money was netted to the
treasury of the Dallas Camp of Wood
men, under whose auspices the big
show was given.
It has been demonstrated that
Carnival and Street Fair can be made
a financial success in Dallas, and the
Observer hopes to see an entertain
ment of this character given here
every Summer in the future.

Col. H. L. Day, who did so much
toward making the carnival a success,
left the first of the wok for Corvallis.
The Colonel threw himself into the
Carnival work with his characteristic
energy, and Iont much valuable aid
to the committees in carrying out their
plans. The value of such a man to
any fraternal order cannot be over
estimated, and Col. Day is justly
popular with the Woodmen. He is a
prince of good follows, besides, and
will always find a warm place in the
hearts of the people of Dallas.

work the Salem Statesman says:
"Miss Edna Parrish has always
been popular with Salem audiences,
and her rendition of 'A Bear Story'
and 'Almost Beyond Endurance'
by James Whitcomb Riley, was
specially taking. They were both
juvenile stories, a style to which
she is especially adapted, and her
interpretation of 'The Bear Story'
was simply perfect. The people of
Dallas may well congratulate
themselves on securing such ex
ceptional talent as an addition to
the faculty of Dallas College."

The largest sum ever paid for a pre

cisco, August 30, 1901. The transfer in
volved in coin and stock $112,500,00 and
was paid by a party of business men for
a specific for Bright's Disease and Dia
betes, hitherto incurable diseases.
They commenced the serious investi
gation of the specific Nov. 15, 1900.
They interviewed scores of the cured
and tried it out on its merits by putting
oyer three dozen cases on the treatment
and watching them. They also got phy
sicians to name chronic, incurable cases,
and administered it with the physicians
for judges. Up to Aug. 25, eighty-seven
per cent cf the test cases were either
well or progressing favorably.
There being but thirteen per cent of
failures, the parties were satisfied and
closed the transaction. The proceedings
of the investigating committee and the
clinical reports of the test cases were
published and will be mailed free on ap
