There is one fact that may be of
interest to the devotee of science.
When I first came here the varia
tion of the compass was about 19
deg. 20 min. east of north and it
kept increasing little by little until
in 1850, it was 19.5 deg. and in
some places 20 deg. That is the
first point. The other is that when
I first arrived here the climate was
dry, with a little cold weather in
the winter, and our crops were al
ways put in early. Afterwards it
began to change, getting wetter all
the while until we thought we
should be compelled to leave the
country. In the meantime the val
uation of the compass had changed
to about 21 or 22 and in some places
it was as high as 22.5 in its regular
course east, then when I was coun
ty surveyor, I got a note from the
observatory at Washington stating
that the compass was slightly turn
ing west again. The wet seasons
kept up until a few years ago and it
is now getting dryer. iMow tne
compass varies about twenty de
erees, and the seasons seem to be
coming back to where they were
then. This may be an important
fact in a scientific point of view,
and I have watched the matter very
closely, noting the different changes
that have occured in the last fifty
years and upwards. It may be
that we are to have another series
of dry years as the compass works
westward it may get dryer and dry
er until we will have a climate very
different from what we have at the
present time. During those dry
seasons we always had plenty of
rain during the winter, and occa
sionaly a winter that the river did
not overflow its banks. But we al
ways had enough rain for the early
sown grain. The Indians used to
tell me that it did not snow any un
til the white men came to the
country. They did not track the
elk, consequently they were glad
we came so they could track the
elk and deer. I do not know wheth
er to believe that or not.
I heard a good many stories
about the high water that had been
seen several years befote I came.
And in Wisconsin, Too.
At La Crosse. Wis., recently, the
county authorities began an official
investigation of charges that girls
under 14 years of age are being
sold to the highest bidders in the
Syrian colony at North La Crosse.
The investigation was ordered as
the result of an attempt to secure a
marriage license for a girl 13 years
old. Evidence was submitted that
the girl had been bid in for $300 on
behalf of the prospective groom, but
that her parents, on receiving a bid
of $450, were attempting to repudi
ate the first sale.
A news telegram lrom Green
Bay, Wis., says a remarkable coin
cident is recalled by the death ofE.
J. Newschwander of the Green Bay
Advocate, which suspended publi
cation a few weeks ago. He was
returning from prayer meeting and
fell dead on the street of heart dis
ease. Just nine years ago, at the
same hour, and almost at the same
spot, his wife, who also was walk
ing home from prayer service,
dropped dead of heart disease. An
other remarkable feature of the co
incident is that in neither case had
neart disease been suspected. Both !
appeared in perfect health when
death struck them down. New.

Last Friday afternoon H. b. Pur
din, Elmer Thompson, Thomas
Jewell, Tom Holdsworth and
George Brown, the lormer until two
weeks ago a resident of this city,
and the Littei lour of Portland, fell
forty feet from the deck of a flume
trestle over Balch'i gulch, about
200 feet south of Willamette
Heights bridge, Portland. Mr. Pur
din died from bi4 injuries at Good
Samaritan hospital at t o'clock that
afternoon, never regaiuing con
sciousness after the fall. Elmer
Thompson wasterriWy maimed and
had his back broken, Jewell had
both legs and armsbroken, but will
live, and Brown and Holdsworth
were less injured. A jmy was im
paneled Saturday and brought in
the following verdict:
"That the deceased, Hugh B Tur
din, came to his death at the Good
Samaritan hospital on the 15th day
February, 1907. about j o'clock p.
m. from the eflects of injuries re
ceived about 1 1 a. in, of the same
day by falling from the flume bridge
under course of construction across
Balch's gulch, about wo feet south
of Willamette Heights bridge.
From the evidence submitted to the
jury, we tmu tuai tne accident was
caused by the slipping of the sling
which was improperly adjusted
around a 15-foot bent, while same
was being raised to a position, said
sling being fastened to a hook and
tackle, which' allowed the bent to
fall across the stringers upon which
the workmen were itwAHtig, cans
ing same to break, precipitating the
men 40 feet to the ground below."

Senator Bevendge and Child Labor.
The February number of the Wo
man's Home Companion contains a
comprehensive description of Sena
tor Beveridge's national bill to abol
ish child labor. The senator tells
bow he worked in a logging camp
at fourteen years of age, beginning
before daybieak and ending after
dark, and the lessons he learned
there served as the present fight
against the horror of child labor.
After describing the evil, he adds:
"But that is not the worst of it.
The worst of it is that pretty soon
these children 'come to age.' What
kind of citizens do they make?
London Hoolieans! That is the
kind of citizens they make. Each
boy and girl of this kind that devel

that he or she is inferior to his fel

actually see it. They feel that they
have been robbed in some way not
robbed in money or property, but
robbed of lite, of health, robbed of
Intellect, robbed of spirit. And in
their undeveloped brains, in their
weakened hearts, in their cramped
and deformed souls the fires of an

Last Thursday night, Astoria,
the oldest city in Oregon, held a
meeting under the auspices of her
Chamber of Commerce and raised
6,480 in less than an hour's time.
This was $6,000 in cash for adver
tising, and the $480 represented
forty new members at $12 each.
There were numerous subscribers
of 300 per year and $180 per year,
many at $120 and $60 per year, all
payable monthly, and among the
latter were three ladies.
The North Bend Chamber of
Commerce raised $5000 in two
hours for advertising purposes.
William Pollman, of Baker City,
who never fails in any undertaking
is in charge of a campaign started
to thoroughly advertise that city.
Thousands of letters are being re
ceived by all the different organiza
tions. Oregon City, La Grande, Al
bany and many other points are do
ing their part.
The schools superintendents
throughout the state, as well as the
teachers are at work, and County
Superintendent B. L. Milligan, of
Malheur county, suggests that all
should get busy and do all possible
to stir up the school teachers and
pupils to co-operate with the Ore

colonist rates which begin March t
and continue until April 30th.
These rates of $25 from all Missou

an opportunity to more than ten
millions of people to get to almost
any point in Oregon; from St. Louis
the rate is $30, and from Chicago
and the surrounding country $33.
One of the best known citizens of
Central Oregon, in conversation on
the street in Portland, remarked
that the whole state was ablaze
with interest on the subject of the
colonist rates, which were being
utilized now for the first time by all
the people of Oregon as a reason for
writing letters to their relatives, ac

states, to whom they are presenting
