has boon an "off your'' for builders,
more houses are being erected than
ever before, in tho towu's history in
tho same spice of time. The burning
of the Sugar Pine factory and lumber
yards was a serious Impediment to
building in Grants Pass, 11s it has
made tho matter of getting material
slow and has caused mnur aunoTing

The growing demand for water for
irrgation purposes emphasizes the
need of more detailed information
concerning the resullts and methods
of irrigation from artesian and sur
face waters. The census of 181)0
showed that the area irrigated from
wells is greatly increasing, and that
tho results in most scctiona of the
country aro eminently satisfactory.
Approximately, itiii,oiw acres were
irrigated in that year from wells, the
value of tho irrigated crops ranging
from fiO to f 1,000 per acre.
In the humid states well irrigation
is utilized to supplement tho in
snlllcient rainfall during early spring
and summer. In tho west tl 6 water
pumped from wells iusures tho home
garden and tho orchard against total
failure through a rainless season.
In California, Colorado, Louisiana,
I lorida and several other states, the
waters of flowing artesian wells are
successfully applied to largo areas, or
are used to nugment tho shortage in
the strolling during th.'irrigating sea
son. In order to obtain the iiniKirtnut
facts relating to irrigation from those
sources, the census ollice will anon
send out inquiries to irrigators from
wells, whoso names were reported by
tho contractors. As the list is not
complete, tho director asks that Irri
gators who do not reeeivo these inqui
ties will send their namcB to Mr, I
. Powers, Chief Statistician, Census
Ollice, Washington, D. C. und blanks
will bo mailed to them at once.
It is requested that all who receive
these inquiries answer (ho same as
fully and accurately as possible, and
promptly return to (he Census Olllou.

AN OSSIFIED HOY.
The Albany Dcims iat man, w ith a
few friends, Sunday etening visiled
the pleasant home of Mart Miller, at
Knox's Initio, says that pais r, where
they had a visit, wilh Mr. Miller and
his family, including his son Ernest,
whose case is an intensely interesting
one. Seven years ago his joints be
gan to harden. Three years ago he
left the house for the last time, and a
year go he was placed ill bed, a
twisted, solid mass, gradually ossify
ing and haltling all the droits of
local physicians to assist him. F'or a
ir he has lain in exact ly the same
position without stilling or being
stirred, a movement causing such pain
to call for other means of taking
ire of him, which have been neatly
and ingeniously devised. His arms,
legs and body are misshapen, ami even
his neck is stilf, so that he cannot
move his head at all. Hut, to offset
this misfortune, he has a face as
beautiful as one ever saw. that of

PEER AT ELLIS ISLAND.
An amendment to the Immigration
bill which was pussed by the House
of Representatives, was offered by Mr.
Boworsook, of Kansas, at the request
of tho Reform Bureau prohibiting the
sale of intoxicating liquors in any im
migrant slat ion. It was instantly at
tacked by the representatives who have
(line to Is) recognized as the cham
pions of beer Shut tuck of Ohio; liar,
tholdt of Missouri, nnd others. Mr.
Shalfnck offered an amendment allow
ing thu sale of beer ill immigrant sta
tions under tho direction of the secre
tary 01 tne treusury. iiie (leliato wag
f a farcical character, consisting
hiefly of jNMitic flights 011 tho beauties
of the German beer garden, tho right
of isTsounl lilsTty, mid similar topics.
1 ho most striking argument of all in
tuvor of colli inning tho sale of beer at
His Island, was that of Mr. Adams,
otherwise unknown to fame, who in
geniously maintained that sinco the
most desirable immigrants are those
from Germany ami tho Scandinavian
oneirics, tliu Hub, of Ixjcr must ho con
tinued, else these Incoming foreigners
will take offeiiso at the failure to pur
chase their national beverage while
waiting at the pier, and will warn
their friends at homo not to come.
Au animated dialogue between Mr,
Shiittuc und Mr. Ijindis, of Indiana.
resulted in the giving and taking of 1
dare on tho some what irrelevant sub
ject of the sale of liquor ill thecapltol
at Washington. Each gentleman pro
claimed himself in favor of driving
the congressional bur out of tho base
ment and each agreed to vote for a
lie asiire If the other would introduce
it. After the adoption of tho section
prohibiting tho sale of intoxicants at
immigrant stati , Mr. Lindis offered
another section extending the same
principle to tlin enpitol ; and though
tne latter was clearly not germane to
the bill, und therefore, would ordinar
ny nave been Immediately ruled out
by tho chairman, owing to a s'culiar
parliamentary situation tho point of
order made against Mr. I-nndis' amend
ment came too lute to Isi accepted by
the chair. His section was therefore
adopted, in the committee of tho whole,
by a vote of 108 to ID. The Toto is
evidently to Isi Interpreted either as a
joke or as a bid for isipulurity by many
of those who imrtioiimted, Inasmuch
as of course such au inelevant section
cannot remain In the bill and iwss
through thu Senate. Hut the debute
brought out clearly enough tho incon
sistency and folly of tho sheltering of
a sahsui in tho national canitol. and
perhaps o ued a way for a re-enactment
of this prohibitive measure in
another form at some later date. The
other scctiou, relating to immigrant
slat ions, will urohuhlv remain in the
bill, and thus one conspicuous abuse
of the government aerviisn will I.
remedied, -Tho Stau.Uid.
