hurried arrangements wero made for

Those who wero not dangerously HI, or
could help themselves, jumped from
their cots and beds, and, hastily don

from tho hospital out into tho cool
Many of tho indisposed men nnd

In moro than ono instance men nnd

patients who had tho physical strength

within 10 minute after tho alarm
was given tho majority of the patients
had left the hospital building nnd stood
in groups or lay upon the ground upon
bed clothes, watching tho firemen and
soldiers fight the flatnes in the laundry.
When th flames had been extin
guished the nurses, physicians and sol
diers turned their attention to the patient-refugees,

many of the more seriously sick pot teats
will have a serious if not fatal effect.
When the fire was discovered In the
hospital a general alarm was sounded.
Besides the regular post fire defmrtment
hundreds of soldiers turned out to fight
the flames. It was only by bard work
that tho flames were 'confined to tho

entirely destroyed, and prevented from

Wells Are Spouting Water.
Arlington Wells bored for oil pros

active artesian gushers since the hour
of the destruetlvo earthquake in Cali

Arlington, and bad been sunk by pros
pectors in tbo hope of scouring a flow
of crude petroleum. Bcsults wero not
up to the anticipations of those who

Heavy Loss in Sin Mateo County.
San Mateo, Cal., May 4. Tbe lossac
in San Mateo County resulting from
tbe recent earthquake can never be even
approximately estimated. Practically
every building in the eounty stfTered
some damage in chimneys, plaster,
broken furniture or crockery. Here, as
elsewhere, brick and stone buildings
suffered tbe most. The loss of life was
small. In Half-Moon Bay a painter and
two children were killed in tho collapse
of an old adobe building. Tho heaviest
losses were in Bedwood City, where the

Substitute Fills for Bridges.
Albany Fills aro taking tho place of
bridges in Linn county wherever tho
ehange is practicable. In a great many
plaoes this ehange has been mado. In
two Instances fills 360 feet leng wero
made. Bridges aro short-lived in this
climate, nnd a constant source of ax
nense to the county. Permanent fills
cost but little more than n new bridge,
which will stand but n few seasons.
Tho county court has ordered road su-
ervlsors to supplant all wsrnout
iridge with fills where material is
available. In all oases wboro thcro
are long approaches to bridges, stand
ing only n short distanao above the
ground, fills aro ordered.
Plan Union High Schools.
Albany To securo high school facil
ities in rural communities, different
school districts In Llun county are
planning union high schools nt central
point. In Jordan Valley five districts
will join next fall, nnd besides main
taining separate schools of eight grades
will establish one high school for all
pupils who have completed oighth-grade
work. Under present conditions rural
districts must send children to ono of
the larger towns fur high school train
ing. If tho experiment nt Jordan Vol
Icy proves successful, the plan will bo
followed in other jwrts of the eounty.
Bigger Demand for Oregon Sugar.
I .a Orande One of the immediate ef
fects of the San Franelseo disaster on
La (Irande Is an increased demand for
tho product of the local sugar factory.
During tho past week the factory 1ms
sent out seventeen carloads of sugar to
points that have heretofore dojieuded
largely on San Francisco for their sup
ply. While tho factory has been supply
ing places eastward as far as Bolso and
shipping westward to Pendleton and
Walla Walla, no such extensive ship
ments havo boforo been made at this
time of the year.
