MESSRS. WEBER AND AlOTT TO
COMA! ENCE .MANUFACTURING
CONCRETE BLOCKS ON LARGE
Weber & Motl, two of Bnndon's
enterprising business men lmvc pur
chased a machine anil arc now en
gaged in the mnuufnctitrc of encroto
blocks from beach gravel.
The machine is lcatcdon the beach
just belw Tuppcr Rock, where it can
lie seen in Deration any ilny. The
machine they now have has a enpac
ity of HO blocks a day, and if business
is such ns to warrant it they will in
crease the capacity of their plant.
The concrete blocks arc made of
six parts gravel to one part cement
and are very substantial. I hey are
used in other places for buildings as
high as four stories and are said to
bo much cheaper than re-inforccd
concrete or brick, while at the same
time they are just as durable.
Weber & Alott already have a
number of orders in sight and are
very muevh encouraged over the out
look. Samples of thheir blocks arc
on display on First Street near the
fire hull, where they can be inspected
by anyone -interested.
UNITED STATES NAVY JOINS
THE RANKS OF THE "DRYS."
Washington, D. C July 0. No
more is the jolly jack tar's song, "Yo
ho and a bottle of rum." The navy
went dry Julylst.
Secretary Daniel's oltljfrtfSjftKainsb
the officer's wino mess, the use of
any alcoholic bevcrnge aboard battle
ships or on land stations or officers'
clubs ashore, was clamped on. They
felt the now order might bo n lord
ship some times, nv.il be .id 'i -
nway a timo-ho o.eil 1 custom. It
means practically tni.il r.bf ..lib. ' ..:
navy officers a. .1 nen. -I lea.', .vh
on a cruise.
The order is so sweeping that an
officer ashore cannot Jiavo any liquor,'
provided he maintains a residence in
a naval reservation. Commanding
officers are made personally respons
ible for the enforcement of the order.
Secretary Daniel's dry order was
promulgated some timo ago, on re
commendation of Surgeon General
Hraistod, who felt that liquor aboard
battleships was not conducive to the
high standard set by the administra
tion. The secretary's early investi
gations of 'the navy surprised him,
for he found that officers were allow
ed to buy light wines in the wino mess
and to serve it with dinners. Liko
vise his friendship with Secretary
of State Bryan, an ardent temper
ance devotee, is believed to have fig
ured in his dry navy decision.
The official order reads: "Tho use
or introduction for drinking purposes
of alcoholic liquors on board any ves
sel or within any yard or station is
strictly prohibited, and commanding
officers will be hold strictly respons
ible fir the enforcement of this order"

JOHN F. BANE HAS TWO HORSES
AND COLT TAKEN FROAI HIS
BARN. NO CLUE AS TO WHO
Someone entered John F. Bane's
barn some time during tho night last
night and stole one of his valuable
horses and also took a mare and colt
from tho yard.
Air. Bano says tho horso could not
have gooten out himself as there was
a large sliding door on the barn and
even if this had not been locked the
horso could not have opened it.
As soon as it was learned thas morn
ing that the horscsc were gone, act
ing City Marshal L'ngelke and Con
stable Blackcrby started on the trail
and traced the horses as far as the
macadamized road south of town
where the trail was lost. A constant
vigil is being kept and it is thought
that the thief will be captured, al
hough indications are that the horses
were taken early in tho evening and
the party or parties no doubt have, a
good long lead by this time.

Several days ago while the truckman

As tho Iflsig tile of (rucks passed by

thieving driver, saying:. "I'll trouble
you to hand over that cap you picked
up on the Manhattan side. It's a black

ALFALFA BELT EXTENDED
BY LIMING OF SOUR SOILS,
Oregon Agricultural College, Cor
vallis, Juno !10. That the field for
growing alfalfa on an extensive scale
would bo extended by applying lime
to tho acid soil of the Willamette
Valley and the Coast country, is the
conclusion reached by Professor II.
D. Scudder, agronomist at tho Oregon
Agricultural College. The rcasn for
this is that tho plant thrives best
only in association with alfalfa bac
teria, which are especially sensitive
to acid conditions nnd do not exist in
sufficient numbers in soils that nre
acid. With an occasional application
of limestno to properly drained sils
alfalfa makes a very satisfactory
growth on soils where it now either
fails onliroly or docs not thrive.
"Clover and even vetch do not suc
ceed well in "soils in these divisions
of the stato when sown in virgin land,
says Profossr Scudder, "While vetch
alsike and red clover, filed peas and
beans grow fairly well on the older
soil of regions that have become self
inoculated, thoir yield would be great
ly increased by making the soil less
acid. Tho heavy rainfalls of these
suctions and tho lack' of freezing
woathor in winter are natural causes
of this limo doficloncy. Lime is read
ily soluble In waler and easily leach
ed out of the noil. Sufficient trials
have Ihmiii made to show the valu
able sllWU of returning a supply of
limo for Hint which was louched mil

One Scheme That Gave a Missionary
the Surprise of His Life.
Iiiiost every one who has friends in
mission work In India knows that one
very Important function of the mis
sionary is to play the part of match
maker to his Mock. But few if any
have heard of the conditions being re
versed and tho llock turning match
maker for their ilssionary. That does
occur, however as the letter written
by a missionary who lives at Tutl-
corin, south India, tells:
On New Year's day. 1011, as I was
6eatcil in my little mud cottage at
L'uticorin a number of people entered
tho veranda and ceremoniously onine
Into my room, bearing trays of (low
ers, fruits, raisins and sugar, which
they placed at my feet like suppliants
who desire to gain the hearing of a
petition. After all duo ceremonial eti
quette had been ob.-erved and I had
indicated my willingness to hear their
petition Brother Guana Draviam. a
prominent lawyer In Tuticorln. began
reading in Tamil an address to which
the others gave strict attention. It.
ran like this:
'Reverend Sir- You have now for
nearly two years bestowed great euro
and labor upon us. ministering to our
spiritual welfare and striving (for the
health of our souls to such an extent
that you have greatly impaired your
iwn physical health, and we feel that
jou need some one to care for yni,
since you do not care for yourself.
We fear lest your zeal In our. behalf
may deprive us nt once of your life
ind services. Therefore, with jtro-
found humility and sincere respect, wo
venture to request you to marry a
good woman, who will both care for
you nid help us "
This was naturally a confusing thing
to happen, but I was hound to re
spond to such an eloquent appeal, nnd
when the applause died nway 1 riwe
and answered with considerable effort-
'Your affectionate regard for my
welfare Is so overwhelming that I hav
no words in which to express my up-
lillll'll. ilflll mil UU. limn; ii. 'lit. ,
..i..t.... f i .... i .i, ...... ...lit.. r..ii.f
from the exertion. But the novelty or
the hltuation overeanio my fatigue.
and, turning one uf the eldes, I
asked If they had any particular per
son in mind as one who would bo will
ing to becouio my helpmeet and bo
equal to all th.t responsibilities they
had outlined. Immediately Aliss W.'s
name was mentioned. "But." said, I.
'I don't believe she would have me."
This seemed to me like miilchiiiaklug
with a vengeance. What a high handed
net, to bo sure! To order their pastor
to marry, and then lo I'honite tlx girl
besides! But the worst was still to
come. "We have alreaily been her ami
told her she must have you," salil
So It wits settled. I may add that
my wife and I have reason to approve
highly. of Hie Indian method of match
making, but It should bo ciin'lilned
