for next week and in keeping
with this general program the
local agricultural club will have

This farage plant is one. of the
most important crops of this sec
tion and one that is engaging the
attention of the farmers through
nit Eastern and Central Oregon.
The more it is discussed the
better understood it will be and
the better results will follow.
With the introduction of the
dairy herd and the greater num
ber of hogs raised this crop
grows in importance. The short
course instructors last week em
phasized the great possibilities
of this forage in this county and
experiments have shown it can
be successfully grown on dry as
well as irrigated lands. The
greater returns per acre is
another important matter that
appeals to the fanner. The seed

Geo. Fry has signified his will-
ing country. He was laid to rest
in the Canyon City cemetery.
His death occurred at Pendle
ton, Fedruary 20. His struggle
for life was pathetic. On the
third of August. IDKlat his home
in Bear Valley he met with his
fatal accident. In a spirit of
play he was performing on a
trapeze when he fell to the
ground. He sustained fracture
of the third and seven' h vertebrae
of the spinal column. Medical
assistance was called and an at
tempt made to reduce the frac
ture. Aftc r n few weeks he was
tiken to Pendleton. He lay help
less for six months. He wus
paralyzed and could not move.
His mind, however, was clear
and through the long wary
months of suffering he remained
cheerful and bopSM. His in
dominable will and determination
alone sustained him. Slowly his
body wasted away with his mind
conscious of his condition and
his spirit steadfast for the un
equal contest for life.- Plue Mt.
The Origin of a
It is generally recognized that
boric acid in considerable quanti
ties is an original constituent in
the waters and gases given off
with volcanic emanations. In
fact, the Tuscan fumaroles, in
Italy, have been an important
commercial source of boric acid
for a long time, and in the past,
possibly even to the present time.
aim. st all the boric acid brought
into the European market has
been derived from this source.
There is ubundant evidence of
the presence of boric acid in
volcanic emanations in many
parts of the world. On the other
hand, boron is so rare a constit

A short study of the borate de
posits in Ventura County, Cat,
supplemented by more cursory
examinations of similar deposits
in the vicinity of Death Valley, i )n
has been made by Hoyt S. dale,
of the United States Geological
Survey, and a new theory of the
origin of the fjtpwitl of role
manite, or borate of lime, in these
regions has been advanced by
Mr. Gal in Professional Paper
85, Part A, recently published by
the Survey. While this tht-ory
has not yet been entirely proved,
there is much in its favor and it
affords suggestions and a work
ing basis for further observation.
Th-i supposition of a desiccated
saline lake to explain the origin
of the colemanite has little to
support it beyond rather general
assumptions. The character of
the deposits themselves indicates
rather a vein type of formation
Other salines which would natur
ally be expected in desiccation
deposits resulting from natural
saline solutions are not found in
association with the colemanite.
Those who have supported the
desiccation theory have offered
no explanation of the cause which
might produce colemanite in such
massive deposits as a product oi
water evatioration, while, on the
contrary, its formation from lime
stone in veins by replacement of
carbonic rcid with boric acid is a
natural hypothesis that deserves
further investigation. The re
lations of the deposits to basalt
lava flows indicate the probable
origin of the boric acid at the
time of the extrusion of these
lavas, although it may be assum
ed that this acis continued to
find its way into solution of the
circulating ground waters long
after the period of the ex
