According to the best bible
clironologlets, Christ was born
some time tu the month of April,
when sheep fornx iu Judea was
good; at any rate not iu December,
which is thu height of the rainy
season there, when shepherds could
hardly bcwajichiiix their flocks by
night on the plums. The obser
valice of this feK.vl is traced hack
to the time of tturor Comniodtia
in the latter putt of the second
century aJW$,Christ. While In this
country it is given more or less
religious signiuVaiice. many Christ
inns entirely rej.u that a petit of
the. celebration as a "human inven
tion". The Atootch Presbyterians
and English dissenters are among
these. It is highly probable that
the popular Christinas would soon
become u dowl institution if it were
not for the part taken by St.
Nicholas, or Santa Clans, or Kris

Roosevelt could be put iu nomina
tion right now it would go far to
relieve the business tension of a
presidential year, for there would
be no doubt about his re-election.
Such improvements as Mr. Wiest
is making for his poultry yard are
important to the community. He
is organizing a really productive
industry, an industry of the kind
that makes the individual and the
community self supporting or bet
ter. We have the elements of self
support' if we will but use them;
but so long as we depend on the
outside world for the necessaries of
life we will be industrially weak.
The homely developments of the
small farmer will make any country
an easy, off-hand manner, without
manuscript or notes. His delivery
was pleasing, and his remarks,
which were easily heard iu the re
mote corners of the Senate chamber,
were attentively followed by a large
circle of interested senators, and by
the large crowd in the gallery. At
the conclusion ofhis speech Senator
Pulton was warmly congratulated.
The days have not yet gath
ered increased length enough to
invite tjvlliglit strolling in Uend,
as the dkl song might warrant,
but the winter solstice is past and
from now on the days will grow
longer till the tropic of cancer shall
halt the northward sun next June.
The season of lengthening days is
the buoyant time of year, inviting
hopeful, aggressive work. We
have six of these buoyant I months

Sheriff C. Sam Smith, who is
president of the Columbia Southern
Irrigation Company, with a segre
gation of 26,000 acres in the
Tumello valley, has bought a h'a'f
interest in a 3000-acre reclamation
enterprise over in the eastern part
of the county, just west of Buck
mountain. This, also, is under the
Carey law. Storage reservoirs will
be built for the water. These irri

It is already a market worth cater

comes here with his apples ami
peaches. Ranch cured boms,
shoulders and bacon were teamed iu

in the fall. The up-river catllemen
look to the Hurid market to take n
considerable part of their stock.

President I.ytfe's announcement
that Harriman has signed the con
tract for financing the Columbia
Southern extension to Uend and
that construction of the road will
begin iu the spring seems to re
move all doubt about the matter
The survey made by the Columbia
southern, however, npiMjars not to
be entirely satisfactory to Mr. Har
riman. Doubtless the mileage is
too great. By putting more ex
pense into construction the mileage
between Shaniko and Bend may be
mrfterially reduced. Certainly the
"f route may be made 10 miles shorter,
possibly 15 miles could be cut out.
The cost of the road would be no
less because of this reduced mileage
but something would be gained in
running time and ease oi operation
when completed, and those con
siderations are important iu modern
railroading. The great care taken
to have this line in all respects up
to the best railroad standard is as
surance that it is to .be no mere
local feeder. It probably uiontis

would be right glad of it. And she
