i STATE NEWS
I IN BRIEF.
United States Senator McNary, upon
his return to Sulem from a trip
through Eastern Oregon announced
that at the next session of congress he
will offer an amendment to the food
control bill specifying definitely one or
more points on the Pacific Coast as
primary markets for wheat.
The season of 1917 will be remem
bered by many Hood River growers as
the year of big apples. Varieties that
usually run to small sizes have devel
oped big specimens this season. On
the East Side ranch of Felix Vonnegut
a number of boxes of Jonathans, run
ning 72 to the box, were harvested.
Nineteen road districts, created
from the old, unwleldly districts have
applied for special elections for road
funds, and the County court named
November 24 as election day in all
precincts within the 19 districts. Ten
of the new districts are on the Coos
Bay side of the county and nine in the
Night schools to teach alien resi
dents English and the principles of
government will be opened in Astoria
next Monday evening. E. M. Hussong
will be principal at the Taylor school
and Miss Anne Lewis will be principal
of the night school at Adair. It is ex
pected that two assistants will be
named for each school.
Attorney General Brown has been
asked by the State Fish and Game
commission for information as to
whether it can legally sell about 200
deer hides which are alleged to have
been illegally shipped into the state
from Montana by G. W. Ross and a
number of associates. Ross was ar
rested a few days ago at Albany.
At a recent meeting of delegates
from the various granges in Clatsop
county, a. resolution was adopted au
thorizing the County Pomona Grange
to appoint a buying and selling agent
to represent the grange members.
This agent is to be located in Astoria,
and will sell all the produce raised by
the grangers and purchase the supplies
J. A. Turner, representing the Pa
cific Potato Starch factory, has been
in Gresham for the past few days in
teresting farmers in raising potatoes,
from which the starch factory will
take the culls and use them in making
starch. He is making an effort to se
cure signers for 1000 acres of pota
toes, for which 50 cents a hundred
pounds is guaranteed.
Bean growers in the Upper Coquille
valley who had out extra acreage this
season and garnered heavy crops, do
not find a ready market for their prod
uct, since the buyers who in other
years absorbed the offerings in this
vicinity are not purchasing freely.
The slowness of the market is attrib
uted to the uncertainty of the food
control propaganda and buyers are ex
pecting price-setting to be announced.
According to reports reaching Klam
ath Falls, the California gold rush is
again on. The wild times and big
rush of '48 and '49 probably will not
be repeated, but there is a big move
among miners to stake claims in the
Klamath river bed, below the big
Copco dam, 45 miles southwest, which
has juBt been completed by the California-Oregon
Power company. Since
the water has been turned off to fill
the dam, the sands of the river bed
have been exposed so that they can be
panned for gold, and it is reported that
good money is being made by miners

A Medford rancher recently adver
tised for acorns, for which he offered
to pay 1 cent a pound. The first day
he received 1136 pounds. Boys from
all parts of the country came in with
acorns in sacks, carts, bags and boxes.
Other ranchers have now taken up the
idea and there is reason to believe that
hundreds of Rogue River Valley hogs
will be fattened on acorns this fall,
with a consequent saving in corn and
Though 30 fires started in the San-

court prepared this week, $10,000 was

the body's urinous waste b-et four
ounces of Jad Salts from any phar

glass of water before breakfast for a
few days and your kidneys will then
act fine, This famous salts is made
from the acid of grapes and lemon

preparation, Improved by the addition
of other ingredients, which can be de
pended upon to restore natural color
and beauty to the hair.
A well-known downtown druggist
says it darkens the hair so naturally
and evenly that nobody can tell it has
been applied. You simply dampen a
sponge or soft brush with It and draw
this through your hair, taking one
strand at a time. By morning the
gray hair disappears, and after an
other application or two, It becomes
beautifully dark and glossy.
