of Oregon prospects. There were
states with worse roads and. also
much better. But whatever
others had done or are doing, the
speaker said, a state with such
boundless resources as Oregon
should have the best roads man
could make. Then its traffic
would move smoothly, and it
would become world-famous as a
resort for tourists, like .Switzer
Using a set of stcreopticon
E.lides for his work, Professor
Eldridge was able to depict var
ious stages of good road work in
various countries and ages. From
viewpoint, no intelligent people
can even get fairly started in
civilization or industrial develop
ment without good roads. History
has so many concrete examples
that the speaker believes anyone
must be converted who will read.
Tho relationship between indus
trial progress and roads is indis
soluble, ho says. The Oregon
scenic asset, which is now prac
tically unknown and wholly unde
veloped, will become immediately
a tremendous source of strength
l Jor the state with good roads.
Judge L. R. Webster also spoke
"briefly at the -meeting, empha
sizing tho necessity of getting
work inaugurated by organizing.
There is now need of funds.
Somo means must be provided
that will app eal to all the people
as a suitable construction plan,
and that will enlist the different
quality wool in the warehouse.
Tho largest number of wool
(buyers ever seen in eastern Ore
gon, at one time were here but
on accont of the present condi
tion of the market the growers
and their representatives thought
best not to place their clips on
the market at this time.
The next wool sales day will
be June 13; when it is estimated
about 2,000,000 pounds of wool
will be put up for sale. A larger-
number of wool buyers aro ex

Complaint is being mado this

having been scarcely any rain
since the first of March. Several
ranchers, who aro tho old .resi
dents of the country aro credited
with the statement that so far it
has been one of tho dryest sea

many years. It is also stated and
tho fact is now apparent that
more fruit was injured by tho
last frost than was at first
thought. Tho fruit around Can

was in tho more exposed portions

and spread on tho field where it
