Eight months ago I was so ill
that I was compelled to lis or sit
down nearly all the time. My
stomach was so weak and upset
that I could keep nothing oa it
and I vomited frequently. I
could not urinate without great
pain and I coughed so much that
my throat and lungs were raw
and sors. The doctors pro
nounced it Bright's disease and
othsrs said it was consumption.
It mattered little to ms what
they tailed it and 1 lad no de

from St. Louis and asked me if

that very little good Is accomplished
for the individual sheepmen. The
buyers go among the wooigrowers be
fore the date of sale, pick out all the
choice wool, and when tbe day of the
sale comes tbe growers are left with the
bulk of the poorer grades on band and
the bayers, having skimmed the cream
from tbe market in advance, are in

Mr. Sunderman thinks that the con
stitution ol the wooigrowers should
provide for a sales day, and a pool of
all wool clips of the members, which
would be binding on all of the members
alike, and make a sale day a benefit to
very individual member. The force
of the orginization should stand behind
and protect every member, in telling
his wool. Th wool should be cradtd
befprt being sold, and all the different
grades from the various xlipt should be
put together and told together, thus
making the wool pool a pool in fact,
and making the organisation a direct
benefit to every individual member.
For A "Binding" Sale Day.
If members are at liberty to sell out
the choice clips in advance, it takes
away the interest in the pool. It spoils
What Irrigation Is Doing
In Morrow County
30000 ACRES UNDER DITCH
Heavy Sales of Irrigated Land
Fruits, Vegetables, Corn,
Alfalfa Grow Luxuriantly.
Moses Ashbaagh, who recently moved
from Heppner to Irrigon in the northern
part of this county, spent several day
visiting with friends and relatives here
Mose is very enthusiastic in his praise
of the Irregon section, which is covered
by an irrigation ditch 25 miles in length.
He reports that the ditchN which was
only eight feet wide at the beginning,
has been widened "to twelve feet the
past season and will supply water suf
ficient to abundantly irrigate 30,000
acres of the arid land in that locality.
Mr. Ashbaugh reports that land
buyers are ?ery numerous, from ten
to twenty-five arrive daily for the pur
pose of buying lands covered by the
ditch, and Irrigon is enjoying a sub
The Irrigon ditch, which' is located in
the northeastern part of Morrow
county, and is owned by the Oregon
Land and Water Company, was started
about ten years ago and each year has
added to its length until it is now about
25 miles in length and covers more than
30,000 acres of some of the best land
in Morrow county. A considerable
acreage of this, land has been under
cultivation the past eight or ten years
and produces abundant crops of corn,
alfalfa, vegetables and fruits. English
walnuts and almonds grow to perfection
and yield well. For the greater part,
however, the land is being put to fruit
which promises to be the more profit-
aoie crop, aunougn aiiaiia and corn
are claiming considerable attention.
One notable advantage this locality
has over other sections of the west is
its early maturity of crops, being in,
this respect two weeks ahead of even
