THE YEAR $1.50
BY PROF. IRLE
A goodly number were preseut
fit the school house last Sunday
tifiruoon to hear the lecture on
the Soul, Hell and the Day of
Judgment. Prof. Irle explained
from the Bible what the soul is,
showing that it is not naturally
immortal, that hell is not a place
i'f eternal torment but simply the
ileath state into which we all have
to go as even Christ did, but from
which all are to be resurrected;
that during the gospel age, God has
not been trying to save the world,
but has been selecting and proving
the true church, the "little flock,"
who are to be changed to the spirit
nature and reign with Christ who
together during the next age( the
milenium, will help all mankind
who so desire tip to perfection, all
others going into the "second
death," oblivion; from which there
will be no resurrection; that the
day of judgment is a thousand
year day, the milenium, earth's
"golden age" during which all the
dead will gradually be raised, Sa
tan be bound, and all mankind will
be having their trial or judgment,
and by the end of which all sick
ness, sin, sorrow and death will
disappear, and the earth be a glori
ous paradise, and that this is the
true gospel, good news; as taught
by Christ and the apostles. Sev
eral kinds 6f literature were dis
tributed, including Dr. Edgar's
lecture on "Where Are the Dead?"
free to all upon application.
The entertainment or vaudeville
performance that was to be given
by the local Artisan assembly to
night will be postponed until next
Wednesday; April 7th.
The Litckfield DownLow built for us by the Litchfield
Manufacturing Company and is low enough for easy loading hut
high enough to avoid trouble. It has practically the same
under-cleararice as the Litchfield Standard Spreader Which has
been sold for years.
Come in and iee for yourself that there is nothing expert
mental or freakish about the Litchfield Down-Low Spreader.

Fischer and "Ford"
E. J. Fischer, the "Ford"
dealer for this section received
word a few days ago that a car
load of machines he had sold and
were on the road became mixed
up in transit somewhere and
went to another dealer.
The Ford people are putting
out 1000 cars every work day
and the demand is so great that
all orders coming in late are apt
to delay and the Ford seems to
be the car most in use, owing
to its being an all purpose ma
chine, besides the big saving in
price and up-keep.
Mrs. E. M. Hartman spent from
Friday of last week until Tuesday
in The Dalles with her son Liucoln
who is in The Dalles Hospital.
She reports that he is slowly im

People are wondering here lately
if this country has not changed
climates with Webfootj so many
fine rains lately.
Mrs. Hahnon, a W. C. T.'U.
lecturer and organizer spoke at the
church here Friday evening. A
large crowd was present and enjoy
ed her talk which was both inter
esting and instructive.
The little daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Godlup Tuschner has been
quite sick the past week.
W. B. Keene and wife e-f Port
land arrived here Friday evening
enroute to Keep's mill. Mr. Keene
and wife are both large holders in
the Clear Lake Irrigation Co.
They were accompanied by Mr.
and Mrs. Empey.
BIG CLEAR LAKE IRRIGATION
The big water supply for the
farmers on Juniper Flat will be
ready in from 60 to 90 days.
Near that time the water will be
let into the big ditch that is al
ready completed to a distance of
about six miles from the outlet
of the storage reservoir. There
is a large cut to make near the
head of the ditch which will re
quire the removal of about 9000
yards of dirt. This work will be
rushed as fast as possible by the
new superintendent, W. B.
Keene, who is a man of large
experience in this kind of work
and comes well recommended
from the irrigation districts of
the famous Yakima country.
f his project, when completed,
will furnish water for 40,000 or
60,000 acres of land and the
magnitude of the undertaking
doesn't seem to be realized by a
great many of our people; owing
to the fact that they have lived
here and dry-farmed for so long,
with promises of water for years
until they have lost ihterest and
A special schobl meeting was
held at this place Saturday after
noon for the purpose of voting on
a Union High school. The people
here are very much interested in
this school for we realize that it will
not only benefit this burg but all
of Juniper Flat, thete being no
high school on the flat, and there
are those attending school here
now froni all three of the other
districts that have taken up this
niatter. The spirit of the people
here was well' hianifested in meet
ing from the fact that out of 49
votes cast, only 9 were against it.
NOW ASSURED FACT
practically lost hope.
With Water on the ground that
is now yielding from 20 to 40
bushels of wheat to the acre, the
production will increase from 18
to 20 bushels more, with never a
fear of a dry year. Irrigation
also does away with all late
frosts eliminating that one bad
feature which occurs here every
four or five years.
There is another fact to be
realized when the water is once
on the "Flat" and that is the
question of hay. There is a
great amount of shallow ground,
where the rocks are close to the
surface or in low places where
they can be removed or covered
over atid alfalfa raised which
would be a source of farm rev
enue that can hardly be estimat
ed. The increase in the price off
vour land will mnfP ttian Hnnhla I
through having an irrigation
system and you should do all in
yonr power to encourage the
promoters of the project and
thus assist yourselves.

were advised to learn cooking,
canning and serving, and boys to
learn pig raising, poultry raising,
dairying and gardening, and to
exhibit their products at the local
fair at Tygh next fall, The lec
ture should arotise greater interest
among the boys and girls iu the
several industries to the benefit of
themselves, their parents and the
comuuity. The gentlemen started
after four o'clock to drive to Cri
terian, twelve miles, to give the
lecture there that night.
