The Times-Herald has had the
condition of the bridges and cul
verts called to its attention re
cently by an auto driver. This
man took the pains to count
the number of bridges between
vehicles of that character and
avoid the necessity of lifts and
jolting to heavy loaded teams.
This complaint, is not confined
to motorists, nor is the suggestion
for improvement in their interest
alone. It is a matter of concern
to every farmer, freighter or
man who drives any kind of
a vehicle over the road. We
had just as well have these roads
fixed for convenience and com
fort for all as to have them a
constant menace and annoyance
to all who have to travel them.

John Hack arrived here this
week with .'!() head of througbred
Jersey cattle which he had re
cently purchased at Portland.
The animals were shipped over
the Oregon Trunk to Opal city
and driven in from that place.
Mr. Hack has disposed of a
few head of the stock but will
lake those left to his farm up
the river and engage in dairy
business. This is a class of stock
needed in this section to improve
the dairy and now that we have

'Poisoned baits are desirable at Hagey to llieliarilson s.
for destroying grasshopper, cut
worms and a few other insects,"
says M. K. Wilson, entomolegist
at the Oregon Agriculture Col
lege, in a new bulletin on insecti
cides for the garden, which will
soon be oil' the press.
"Such bails are most effective
if used in early spring," husays.
"Poisoned sliced of potatoes or
some similar vegetables treated
with a strong solution of arsen

used to poison sow-bugs and
"To make a bran arsenic
mash mix thoroughly a pound of
white arsenic, half a pound of
brown sugar, six pounds of bran
and add enough water to make a
wet mash. A spoonful should
be placed al the base of each tree
or vine. For cut-worms a still
better bait may be prepared by
mixing throughly a pound of
Paris green, lfi pounds of mid
dlings and 1T pounds of bran,
dry, and sowing it broadcast
upon the vegetation, about "the
borders of cultivated fields or
gardens. It may also be sown
with a seed drill along the rows
of plants to bo protected. So
used it has been found especially
valuable for destroying cut
worms in onion field."

Tho Times-Herald is in receipt
of a letter from Supt. Hamilton
giving the results of the recent
eight grade examinations. There
were thirty applicants and but
eight passed successfully. He
adds, however, that most of the
failures were in but one or two
studies and most of them will be
successful at the June examina
tion. Those who passed were:

The man who does his duty
when no man is watching, when
no swift punishment will follow
its neglect, is a true hero,
The man who insures his life
for the protection of his family
and pays the premiums through
much self denial has more honor
in the eyes of Heaven than the
man who is ready to risk his life
unnecessarily for the plaudits of
the multitude. The husband is
like a sentinel standing guard
over a camp upon whoso vigilance
its safety depends. If he neg
lects insuring his life, ho is like a
sentinel who is found asleep at
his post. The punishment which
goes with such a crime is the
severest that can bo given. On
the other hand, if a sentinel
while on duly is killed in-the
effort to protect the camp, ne is
regarded as worthy of the Cross
of the Legion of Honor for his
faithfulness. The man who dies
and leaves his family protected
by a policy of Life Insurance, is
like the faithful sentinel, who is
kil'ed, but who has sounded the
alarm. If you are not insured.
