The Work of
Miss Anna- Rutleclge
At tho close of tho school year
it is quite fitting that tho
patrons of tho school should
know what work has been done
in tho Domestic Science depart
ment. Thoro have boon three
classes in Domestic Science this
year, tho seventh grade, the
eighth grado, and the freshman
iii high school, making about
fifty-four girls In all. On Mon
day and Thursday tho girls havo
served, and on Wednesday and
Friday they havo, cooked, Tues
day being set aside for lectures.
Tho work in cooking, this
year, has Included tho canning
of fruit, brcadnmklng, vege
tables, meats, cake-making, om
lets and Ice cream. Tlio High
school class 1ms planned and
computed tho cost of Junchoons
and breakfasts, and havo served
tho same. In lectures, tho work
has covored tho oaro of tho sick,
sanitation of tho homo, plumb

Betver-Herndon Hardware Company 1
Building of Alaskan Railroad
.Will Open Up Marked For
'oign Demand Excoods Avail
able Tonnage.
Prospects for improvement In
the Northwest lumber trade, the
Chief Industry of this cpnier of
tlje United States, arc said by
tho Timbcnnan to be Increased
by the prospective construction
of the Alaska railroad by the
Government immediately at a
cost of $28,000,000. The new
road, 416 miles from Seward to
Fairbanks, with a branch of 38
miles up to Matanuska Valley,
will require a large amount of
lumber, not only for construc
tion purposes, but for the devel
opment of the country to be
opened, which is expected to re
sult in a continued and growing
demand for Coast lumber.
Shipments of lumber to Alas
ka in 1914, as reported by the
Pacific Lumber Inspection Bur
eau, amounted to more than 35,
(MO.OOO feet.
Another helpful element in
the local lumber situation is that
tKe transcontinental railroads
are considering seriously the
question of a reduction in
freight rates so as to be able to
compete successfully with the
Panama Canal. With a reduc
tion in the Pittsburg territory to
equal the Chicago rate of 55
cents, there would undoubtedly
be a marked tendency to in
crease the market for Pacific
Coast lumber: " ,-.
The enlarged wheat acreage
in Western Canada, it is said,
will have the effect of Increasing
the demand for lumber.
The problem facing exporters
of Pacific "Coast lumber Is now
that of tonnage. Every day the
situation becomes more acute.
It is said that as vessels reach
England they are at once com-
nla"ndeered for government use.
Meanwhile large orders have
.cn placed for export railroad
t. iterial at various mills, with
f tonnage in sight to movcit.jsociation at Creswell, Wednes
quires for 10,000,000 feet of
Oregon pine for South Africa
hove- been received.
' ,The total lumber exports
from the Columbia River for the
first four months of 1915 aggre
gate 66,832,000 feet. The heav'
lest buyers have been China and
Quebec. Orders to tho extent
of 10,000,000 feet were dis
patched to China, while those of
Quebec amounted to nearly 5,-
000,000 feet, London and South
Africa took 2,700,000 and 2,000,-
000 feet respectively. Japan's
importations were greatly less
than those of China, aggregat
ing slightly more than 1,000,000
feet. Two cargoes totaling 1,-
700,000 feet wero dispatched to
Mexico. Now Zealand took 680,-
000 feet, and the port of Balboa
(Tanawa) took slightly over
500,000 feet. Telegram.
