of tho city nt heart. Tho spirit In
'which Iboy havo taken hold of the
work shows clearly that tho club has
selectod Its govornlng body well.
Presumably tho directors arc ma
turing plans for tho club work,
which will bo nnnounccd from tlmo
to tlmo for discussion and action nt
tho weekly meetings.
In addition manors not previously
considered will nrlso during tho
coursu of tho year which demand

80 It Is when a school, or a col-
logo or a town has an especially high
roputatlon for successful nnd clonn
athletics. Take Raker, for Instance.
Tho high school there won practically
every basoball game nnd track meet
for a dozen years and novcr had Its
goal lino crossed In football for Ave
years, as wo recall It. That put Raker
on tho map. It attracted young men
to tho town. Thoy wanted to attend
a high school with such a record.
Hero In Rend wo aro Just getting

Wo hod a splendid football team, and
next season wo can havo another as

games will bo arranged. Wo had n

year's will be better. And now basket
ball Is coming to tho fore, and a rat
tling good quintet will do much to
liven up Intercut In things athletic
and afford opportunity for healthy
competition with other communities.
It all pnys. Just from tho stand
point of community publicity, If from
no other, development of athletics
should bo encouraged. It Is good In
tho grado school, good In tho high
school and good for tho "oldor boys."

DAD NEWS FOR PAISLEY.
What is probably tho worst plcco
of nowB that tho peoplo of Paisley
ovor had Is tho report of tho aband
onment of tho local Irrigation project
by tho promoters. Tho net means
the posslblo loss of their Investment
and tho end of tholr expectation of
making homes In a favorod spot. It
wilt como as a discouraging blow.
To tho town, also, tho nows must
spell disaster, or at least suffering.
Undoubtedly It has been living In tho
hopo of seeing tho project completed
and tho growth of a prosperous and
contontcd population on tho irrigat
ed lands. Now that hopo Is blaBtod
and tho only growth to bo expected
will bo such as may como from tho
development of tho segregation as a
dry farming area.
Ono other project Is also affected,
tho Oregon, California & Eastern
railroad, now being promoted by Rob
ert E. Strahorn. Over a year ago,
Mr. Strahorn said that his succoss
would bo In a large measure de
pendent on tho settlement of Central
Oregon Irrigation difficulties, nnd

now must vanish, unless a way to

Presumably tho Irrigation com

for their abandonment of tho case
and yet It would seem best not to
gtvo up nt this stage. Many a casa
has been won on nppftil. If tho com

loy, and possibly those Interested In
scolng Mr. Strahorn succeed, could

THE PAISLEY APPEAL.
Tho decision of the company back
of tho Palsloy Irrigation project to
probecuto an appeal from Judgo
Daly's decision, giving all tho water
of tho Chowaucan river to n local
cattlo company, indicates a return
ing senso of responsibility. Tho only
wonder Is that tho company should
over havo let Itself go so far as to
announce an abandonment of its
And yet, In tho fact ot what ap
pears to havo been an unusual
decision, to Bay tho least, It was per
haps only natural that tho company
should havo momentarily lost heart
and thrown up Its hands. Tho grant
ot four acre feet to a cattlo company
to water Its marsh lands Is so plainly
preposterous that tho company must
havo felt that thcro was nothing It
could do to gain a Just decision.
As wo understand tho case, tho
cattlo company was wholly unablo
to show a prior appropriation and
beneficial use, tho only grounds on
which tho decision in Its favor could
be given, It being Impossible toi uso

A MAN WE HAVE FORGOTTEN.
Matthew Fontaine Maury, Who Was a
Really Groat American.
Every ono who hns heard of Robert
Fulton, certainly every ono who hns
heard of S. P. It. Morso or Cyrus W.
Field ought also to have heard of Mat
they Fontaine Maury. Dut that Is not
tbo case. For my part, I had never
heard of Maury until I went to Vir
ginia. I hnvo asked schoolboys if they
have beard of him. None of them has.
Yet Maury's scientific researches and
accomplishments hnvo hnd an enor
mous effect, not only In this country,
but throughout the world.
It may be said that Maury laid the
foundation for our modern weather bu
reau and that tho science of meteor
ology begnn with him. Ho founded
the nntlounl nautlcnl obscrvntory nnd
the hydrographlc ofllce In Wnsblngton
nnd discovered, among other things,
the cause of the gulf stream nnd the
existence of thnt plnteau In tho north
Atlantic ocean which, If I am not mis
taken, inndo posslblo the laying of tbo
first Atlantic cable. Cyrus W. Field said
with rcfercnccMo this, "Maury furnish
ed tho brains, Englaud tho money, nnd
I did tho work." Further than this,
tbo charts of tho north Atlantic which
Maury made years ago are today tho
basis upon which that ocean is navi
gated by nil untlons.
