A recent oflicial inveti(ra tion Into a trnoid outbreak of 95 caae traced the infection to food which had been contaminated during preparation by a woman recently re covered from typhoid. Certain per sons although entire'y recovered from the dipeaM are typhoid carrier. Their use of unscreened toilets might result in the spread of typhoid thru flies which w.mld contaminate food, j Separate towels are a necessity for j health. Better hare one person use' the name towel for three weeks with out laundering it than to have three persons use the same towel for one day. Baths are an incentive to keep ing clean clothing to put on after bathing. A shower bath may be con structed with nominal expense by at taching to a post a large can. perfor ated in the bottom for a direct spray, or in one aide for an oblique spray, and pen at the top for receiving water from a bucket. Heating water on the stove or camp fire adds to com fort and cleansing effect. Use of aoap keeps the pores open and .n croases resistance to infection, tub bing soap into the soles of hose 1 le(.en the burning of feet during a job which requires standing. Indi vidual drinking cups are a necessity to health. Encourage workers to drink an abundance of pure water. but not when overheated. Waste Disposal Garbage of food leftovers should be placed in covered cans and removed daily, and either burned or buried. Receptacles should have close fitting covers, and should be washed out after the daily empty ing. Fly tight privies or water flush ed toilets should be maintained in a elean and aanitary condition separ ate toilets for men and women, one for each twenty persons or fraction thereof, of either men or women. No camp should be at a greater distance than 400 feet from both men's and women's toilets. Toilets for women should be provided in the fields.. The location of all toilets should be plain ly indicated by signs. At least one caretaker should be employed by the management to keep the camp i grounds in sanitary condition. j Kill Flies Save Live The house fly is bom in tilth and picks up filth i from stables, manure piles and out houses. He may carry filth to your baby's lips, to your baby's food and to your owd food. Swat, trap or poi son flies, but better yet, prevent their breeding. First Aid Supplier Each employer may increase the probability of health among his workers by getting from hit druggist a supply of one inch and one-half inch bandages, and simple remedies such as iodine for minor infections, talcum for sun burn. Welfare Workers have proved the value of day nurseries for the chil dren of work s. They have also kept a wholesome attitude toward the work in hand through evening programs by the workers themselves, with ath letic games, music and dramatic en tertainments. The State Board of Health will, upon request with stamp ed, addressed envelope, send the ad dress of an organisation which is pre pared to recommend a limited number of workers for such service. sods of the Last Gamp were Arling ton muter n Thursday.

The school books and the things set forth in them are well handled but here it ends. A few years ago a representative of Brad street was talking to me about the rating of business firms and the chances of business success of va rious people. He called attention to the fact that school teachers as a whole were the poorest business peo ple that the company found. His reason was that the nature of the business was theoretical and imag inary, and the realities of life were seldom faced. In other words he said the very life of our schools is im practical to a business success. Was he right? If so let as help change it. At the present time our teaching force, having developed opinions, is traveling a path of its own. On the other hand the patrons of the school. somewhat dissatisfied, with the amount of money paid for schools and ith no dehmte demands, are trav eling a path of their own, and these two paths are getting farther apart. If our money is to be wisely spent and our educational method is to fit the pupil for life's needs we must reorganixe our school scheme. our wheat this year is very good. Anyone having good samples of wheat art requested to get in touch with tne County Agent, or bring him in ft sack of their wheat. This will be cieaned at Heppner down to a one bushel lot and taken down to the snow. The premium list has not yet been published but assurances have been made that substantial cash prizes will be awarded on all market grades of wheat.

Stay by the Dairy Cow. (Morrow County Extension Service News) The price of hay in the hay grow ing sections of Morrow county is tending to encourage the dairyman to quit the dairy game and sell his cows. A number of requests for in formation have been received by the County Agent regarding ft possible market in California for surplus cows. Information is being gathered as to the possibility of selling in this market. However, the wisdom of sell ing cows and getting out of the dairy game at this time is very Beriously questioned in the irrigated sections of the county where alfalfa is the main crop. Over a term of years it is believed higher profits can be made feeding hay than in selling it. One of the best markets for hay is through the milk pail. During the past few months hay has been rising and the price of butterfat has been relatively low. This is largely a sea sonal condition and next year may be entirely reversed. Among men who have studied the situation, it is be lieved that the alfalfa weevil is slow ly spreading and it is probable that within the next few years we will have it in this section. After it does come, we will undoubtedly be quar antined and the man who is equipped to feed his hay on the place is going to be, relatively, sitting pretty. One of the very major reasons for the suc cess of most of our successful farm ers is that they got into one line and followed it through. The man woo is continually switching his opera tions is always in at the wrong time or out at the wrong time. The man who has a farm better suited to wheat raising, sheep growing, or dairying, should stay with that line of farming, If he changes from one line to an other he is always selling at the bot tom and starting in at the top. Us ually by the time he has made change, conditions are different again and he is not in a position to reap the benefits of the change. During the past three months a large number of horses have been lost in the Irrigon and Boardman communities. Several farmers in the Irrigon community especially, have lost all their horses from this dis ease. To get a line on it, the County Agent secured the help of Dr. W. H. Lytle, State Veterinarian, and he sent Dr. H. H. Green, his assistant, into the county last week. One of the sick horses was killed and examined and it is believed that the disease is a form of botulinus poisoning. what is generally known as walking disease, but in a more acute form. Ar rangements were made to have horses in the Irrigon section given an anti toxin as a preventative measure. The disease starts with an unsteady ae tion in the hind quarters, resulting within twenty-four hours of the ani mal going down and a paralysis of the hind quarters extending through out the body. Horses have been liv ing from one to five days after taking the disease, and according to the State Veterinarian, there seems to be o cure for it after contracting the disease. It is apparently not con tagious, although any number of horses can get the disease from the same source. CECIL MS ITEMS Hay and Grain Show to Be Held In Portland.

The Mennon ites do not believe in war, nor in fight ing under any circumstances. They have wandered from place to place their migrations usually resulting from objections to their presence by those who had to defend the govern ments under which they lived. And now reports from Chihuahua state that the Mennonites have taken up arms against the bandits, who seem to want nothing better than an opportunity to raid the flocks and granaries of a colony that can farm but doesn t want to fight. It was bound to come to that. Pac ifism never did work. Somebody a! ways has to fight, or at least be ready to fight, in the defense of property and liberty. People like the Mennon ites, who refuse to be either soldiers or policemen, usually consider them selves martyrs. They are only slack ers, imposing upon others the task of defending them and their proper ty. When this colony got to Mexico, and its menfolk found that there was no one there to protect them, they reached for the shotgun. It's a good thing for a pacifist to go to Mexico and accumulate a little property. The Agricultural Review, SCHOOL TIME. By R. B. WILCOX. In a short time the boys and girl in our county and all over the eoun try will enter the school room again. At the present time the size of our tax bill seems almost intolerable. Almost one-half of that tax is for school purposes. The proposition that interests me is not that we are sper.d ing too much for education, but whether our money ia buying exactly what it should buy. Sometimes I am inclined to think that we are buying a silk hat suitable only for Sunday and special occasions instead of more practical on good for every day wear. As long a we make no definite demands our schools are sure to go along the accustomed path From the standpoint of an education al machine our school system is mak ing rapid advancement. It is workin out concrete educational problems at a surprisingly rapid pace. But onr school system as an institution to fit a pupil for ordinary conditions 01 life is a fllure. A number 01 prae tical educators realize this and these people are doing what they can to better conditions. The school patron should give some thought to this mat ter and help them by making demand for better practical results. To nMure any beneficial results It will neceoitate a sort of revolution on not only the attitude of many pa trout but also b change of attitud in a lurue part of the teaching fore A child's teaching to be practical must be administered at some stage by a person who has practical exper ience rounded out by technical know ledge.
