COME WEST TO GET IT
Whether it be talc for beauty cul
ture or for marble to grace the build
ing turrets overhanging its canyon
like streets, the East comes to the
Pacific Coast and the Southwest to
get it. According to G. X Sielaff,
Southern Pacific's chief geologist,
the company has now compiled a col
lection of over 800 private properties
holding commercial minerals in Ore
gon, California, Utah, Nevada, Ari
zona and New Mexico. Some of the
finest talc for face powders and build
ing marble comparable to the famous
marbles of Italy are available. This
information is made available by the
railroad through various organiza
tions for the benefit of manufactur
ers who are seeking mineral products.
Parties having mineral properties
may list them with the railroad. Two
years ago a preliminary survey was
made of the mineral resources alonj;
the railroad's lines. . The list now
includes nearly all minerals required
by modern manufacturers. Since the
railroad started disseminating the in
formation a large number of deposits
have been opened to development ard
production. The information included
in the list of properties is bein used
by chambers of commerce as we'l as

Ed Averill, state game warden, has
evidence showing conclusively that
game birds are a help rather than a
pest to the farmer. A year's specific
study of Chinese pheasant diet con
ducted by the state game department
of Idaho, has disclosed that any
harm the pheasant might do to crops
is more than offset by the good they
do in the eating of weeds and insect.;.
Corn was found in the pheasant
crop in only two months, Febru:t y
and December. Wheat appeared in
March, August, September and N
vember. Little of the wheat was oili
er than gleanings of the field, it i:;

Governor Patterson's idea of get
ting Oregon out of its present li

holding down appropriations, then
scuttle the receipts of all boards and
commissions five per cent, dumping
the proceeds into the general fund.

which appeals to most In the morn

breakfast food for all ages. Wash It
well and soak overnight, then cook all

G. W. Rigby & Son last week
slaughtered 150 hogs for bacon at
their reservation ranch. The bacon
brings about 9 cents, and a larger
profit is derived from its disposal at
that price than from the sale oi" hogs
on foot at the present low quotations.
A cold storage house will soon be
erected on William Rigby's ranch on
the Umatilla, and bacon will be kept
on hand all season. Rigby & Son are
building up quite a business.

to protect it against the extremes of cold

walls and roof. Such Insulation will also
cut down outside noises to a marked de
