NEW TRANSMISSION LINES
Oregon Power Company Replacing;
Bare Copper With Insulated Wire.
In following out the policies Inaugu
rated by Manager J. L. White, the
construction force of the Oregon Pow
er Company's plant in Dallas has been
making many improvements lately in
the electric transmission lines about
Khe city. Along Washington street,
from Main to Uglow avenue all of the
old cross-arms have been removed and
replaced by new ones of the standard
type. The bare copper wires that have
heretofore done duty there have been
taken down to make room for a larger
sized wire that is heavily insulated for
the purpose of bettering voltage con
dltlons and to avoid' possible damage
resulting from contact with them. All
of the primary and secondary lines in
the city will receive similar treatment
before the improvements are finished.
During the month of May over $600
was spent on line repairs here, and
since the first of the year approxi
mately 100,000 feet of No. 6 insulated
copper wire has been strung.

Ralph Macomber, the 12-year old
son of J. S. Macomber, of Oakdale, re
ceived a broken collar bone last Fri
day nlKht while coasting down the hill
in front of the family home at r ern-

Dr. Bollman was sent for and rendered
the necessary medical treatment and
it is expected that it will be two
months before the boy will be able to
use his arm again.
Mr Macomber thinks that he has
more than hi. share of bad luck, as
about a year ago his wife and daugh

mental music, acted as organist
President Winter spoke. In part, as
follows. As he neared the close of
his remarks he became deeply affected
by the occasion and spoke with great
feeling, while the large congregation
sat In rapt atttention:
"Paul, a Ready Man."
"As I face the class of 1911 this
morning and this vast Intelligent au
dience, I am very conscious of the
great responsibility resting upon me as
your speaker. On the other hand, It
Is an honored privilege to give expres
sion to a message which for some
months has been taking shape In my
own mind and heart. My subject is
'Paul, a Ready Man.
"Before taking up the body of the
discussion, there are two preparatory
matters which require our attention.
"In the life of this man you find one
clean line dividing It in about its cen
ter. Behind that line is the old life
the 'old man' to which he so often
referred while on the other side of
the line is the new life 'the new
man.' To Paul, the crossing of that
line was something that went to the
very depths of his being. It trans.
formed him. This man did not count
that he had any life except the' life
that was named 'Christ' He began to
reckon his life only from the day
when Christ was born within him
through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Then, let us keep in mind that the
years which the Apostle Paul spent on
the earth prior to the moment when
Jesus found him he did not reckon as
worth speaking of for a single mo
ment Commencement Sunday.
"The next thing requiring your at
tention 1. the fact that this Is Com
mencement Sunday. While In college
r often wondered why it was so desig
nated. I thought it was the finish
the end) and not the beginning. I
never learned Its true meaning until
the day of my own graduation. The
threshold of a new epoch dawned up
on my vision.
"Hitherto kind and sympathetic
teachers have guarded your youthful
footsteps, but you ere now face to face
with the vicissitudes of a new career.
If you are to live the Ideal life of the
Apostle Paul, you too, must crown
Jessu king. Begin with him.
"In Romans 1:15 Paul says, 'So as
much as In me Is, I am ready to
preach the gospel to you also that are
In Rome.' In Acts 21:13, Then Paul
answered, 'what mean ye to weep and
to break my heart? for I am ready
not to be bound only, but also to die
at Jerusalem for the name of the
Lord Jesus.' In Second Timothy, 4:
6-7: 'For I am now ready to be offered
and the time of my departure Is come.
I have fought the good fight; I have
finished the course. I have kept the
"May we ask what made Paul
ready for these things? There ws. a
threefold preparation necessary. The
first step was sight or the power of
perception 'a vision I saw on the
way.' Paul's new life began when
there shone a light round about him
on the way to Damascus. Remember
that he wa. straight, upright moral,
righteous sincere to the core of his
being. As far as education went at
that time, he wa. well educated. A
light from heaven fell, and a voice
from heaven spake. Paul fell to the
ground, and the man upon the earth
said In answer to the voice from
heaven: 'Who art thou. Lord?' The
answer came 'I am Jesus.' What a
wonderful revelation came to this man
on hi. way to Jerusalem. 'What wilt
thou have me to do?' Tht I. hence
forth the keynote of hia life. The
music la true to It through all the fu
ture; through missionary )ourneylng;
through perils by land and sea; In
prison and among robbers; when suf
fering peraecutions when preaching
the gospel of the mice of God; he I.
always true to the keynote when he
tinf M mm a
The aacred writers of the bible
"writ unto as the thincs ahich we
hare a-ea and beard.' Oh. the million
voices speaking to u- la Nature;
he gave up everything. He was a man
with a splendid Intellect, and with all
tne intellectual culture that the age
afforded He was an intellectual giant,
but that intellect of his was laid at
the feet of Jesus It Is quite untrue
to say that the greatest Intellects that
have ever existed have been devoted
to the opposition camp. The finest Ifr
tellects with which the world has been
blessed, I believe, have been beautl
fully submissive to the Christian faith
The men who have done most to
adorn science are men that have be
lieved In the Bible and in the God of
the Bible, and in the Savior whom the
Bible reveals And so the Apostle Paul
surrendered all to the Jesus Christ,
Did he make a mistake In thus yield
Ing himself to God? No. When
Jesus gets right of way from attic to
cellar In your inner being. He will
come into your life, and new men and
new women will go out from this bac
calaureate service to live a new life
for God and humanity Oh, may there
be over this audience a whole-hearted
surrender to Jesus Christ.
"Now you see what went before the
Appstle Paul's readiness. He saw the
Lord; he heard His voice; he surren
dered all; and after that he said,
'Lord, I am ready.' All men without
distinction of nation or culture are
Paul's creditors. He owes them his
life, his person, in virtue of the grace
bestowed upon him, and of the office
which he has received. 'I am debtor
both to the Greeks and thei Barbari
ans; both to the wise and the unwise.'
The Greek represented the culture of
the day; the Barbarian, I suppose,
the Ignorance. He says, 'I am debtor
to the upper ten, and I am debtor to
the lower ninety.'
"Who believes that today? Do you
think you owe anything to the man
who handles your baggage, save the
dime or the quarter you gave him?
Did you think that you were through
with him then? Faul Bays you were
not. Is that all you owe ? If you
think It Is then you do not understand
what Christian service Is. 'I am
debtor to everybody I am In debt to
every man I meet'
A New Religion.
"When we come to see the Greek
and' the Barbarian, and the bond and
the free, and the wise and the unwise,
as our brethren as those to whom we
owe something then all over the
broad continent of America we shall
have a new kind of religion.
"Paul said, 'I am ready, because
am a debtor.' He might have said,
I am under no obligation; the world
owes .me a living.' Yes, generally
speaking, a man gets what he Is worth
to the world. Sometimes he may get
ess, sometimes more, but such are
exceptional cases. The surest way for
a man to get a good salary is for him
to make himself valuable tndlspens
ible, If possible. The world paya for
what a man does, not for what he
might do; not for undeveloped tal
ents; not for dormant abilities. You
owe the world the best that is in you.
and the full measure of service you
are capable of giving.
Age of Barbarity.
"Let me remind you that service in
Rome at that tma was a passport to
the amphitheater, to the lions.
It was the age of the Infamous Nero
who delighted to see the Christians
torn limb from limb, or at times, even
delicate women and gentle children
flung Into the arena before the hungry
beasts. That was the a Be In which the
Apostle Paul said '1 am ready.' Thank
God for a ready man. May we find In
future days that there are such in this
class and and many ready people In
'Dear friends and members of the
class of 1911 may you be ready to say
that you have finished your course,
that you have fought the good fight,
that you have kept the faith. If you
will live the Ideal life, you will die the

GARDEN PEST REMEDIES
BEST MEANS OF FIGHTING ENE
MIES OF VEGETATION.
College Entomologist Tells How
Subdue Different Varieties of
Bugs and Woims.
Just what to use to kill the bugs
and worms which annoy the gardener
of vegetable and small fruit tracts at
this time of year, Is told In a new bul-'
letin o"f the Oregon .Agricultural Col
lege, which will goon be issued front
the college press.
"Plant lice, or aphlds, such as the
cucumber aphis, cabbage aphis, let
tuce aphis, strawberry aphis, rose
aphia and others, often become very
troublesome In the garden on various
plants, and some of them are very
hard to control," says H. F. Wilson,
entomologist, who Is author of the
work. "Black Leaf, Black Leaf 40, or
kerosene emulsion, applied at any
time when the aphids become trouble
some, or before the leaves curl, Is effective.
"For worms on cabbages and cauli
flower Paris green or arsenate of lead
should be used. For cut-worms on
onions, a bran-arsenic, mash or a
Paris green dry bait
For the striped , cucumber beetle.
the plants should be dusted with Paris
green or sprayed with arsenate of lead. .
It is well to plant some early squash
for trap plants, and when the beetles
are feeding on them, dust heavily with
Paris green. ,
Currant Leaf Worms.
"For worm on leaves of currant
bushes one should spray with arsenate
of lead. For fruit worms, destroy the
Infested fruit and allow the poultry
the run of the bushes when the infest
ed fruit is failing.. For aphis apply an
aphis spray (black leaf or emulsion)
when the berries are Just coming out
Gooseberries should be given the same
treatment as currants.
'For plant lice on hops, a thorough
spraying should be given with black
leaf or kerosene emulsion at the time
the lice are on the plant, and the
treatment may be repeated in June if
necessary. For aphis on peas the
treatment Is the same.
"To get rid of the striped cucumber
beetle on muskmelons the treatment is
the same as on cucumber vines, and
for flea-beetles on potato vines a
heavy strength spray of arsenate of
lead, whenever the beetles appear,
should be effective. Watermelon
pests are treated as the muskmelons.
"When there are cane maggots on
the raspberry bushes, the only thing to
do Is to cut out the Infested canes and
burn them. For aphis and leaf hop
pers on rose bushes, a kerosene emul
sion or black leaf spray should be
used. For flea-beetle on tomato plants
a spray of arsenate of lead should be
used whenever they appear; for aphla
the kerosene or black leaf spray is
"When flea beetles are found . on
sugar beets, the plants shouU VM'',
sprayed at once with arsenate of leud
and the treatment should be rep. A'
two or three times at intervals of t
weeks or so, "
"If the beds of violets have red
spiders or aphlds, black leaf or kero
sene emulsion should be used. In case
one treats red spider with the kero
sene emulsion, the under side of the
leaf must be sprayed, to be effective.
"Carbolic acid emulsion la used to
destroy the eggs and young maggots
which infest radishes, onions and sim
ilar garden crops and occasionally for
"To make such an emulsion, dis
solve a pound of hard soap in a gallon
of boiling water, add a pint of crude
carbolic acid and churn (preferably
with a hand-pump) until the mixture
Is a creamy white. This forma a
stock which may be diluted by adding
thirty times as much water as stock.
It should be applied to the surface of
the ground about the plants,"
