THE WORLD'S WISDOM.
What a marvelous store of wisdom
has been gathered by man. No one
mind and no one library can contain
it all. The sum total is incalculable.
It is possible that man's wisdom and
knowledge is but fragmentary. Yes,
it is so incomplete that fresh know
ledge is accruing at an even increas
ing rate. Yea, in every ' direction
there are boundaries beyond which it
seems impossible for man with all his
wisdom to go. He can not go beyond
them without a wisdom not his own.
Yea, imperfect man with his partial
knowledge must yet trust in a per
fect God having all knowledge.
The evening service at the Church
of Christ begins at eight o'clock and
the subject will be "Worldly Wis
dom." The theme at the eleven o'
clock service will be "The Lion's

From State Board of Health.
Rocky Mountain spotted fever has
existed in some portions of eastern
Oregon ever since that paft of the
state was first settled. The disease
is transmitted to man only by the
wood tick, Dermacentor venustus. It
is characterized by onset with chill,
continued fever, severe pain in bones
and muscles, headache, and an erup
tion that appears first on the wrists,
ankles and back, finally covering the
whole surface of the body. It is a
dangerous, disease, frequently fatal
and always serious.
The larvae and nymphs of the wood
tick feed upon small animals such as
the mountain Tat, ground squirrel,
wodochuck, chipmunk, etc. Trie adults
feed upon domestic animals such as
horses, cattle, sheep, and upon large
wild animalS such as deer, bear, coy
ote, and mountain goat.
The virus is transmitted by both
the wood tick and the rabbit tick. It
is maintained by passage from stage
to stage in the development of these
ticks and by new lines of infection
starting in previously uninfected
ticks feeding on infected hosts.
The wood tick is the only known
agent of human infection. The rabbit
tick feeds only on rabbits and game
birds. Wood ticks and rabbit ticks
meet in common on rabbits. Game
birds by spreading rabbit ticks assist
in the spread of infection. The wood
tick completes its cycle in two years,
feeding three times, first as larva,
then as nymph, and finally as adult,
feeding at each stage on a separate
Control methods are directed
against the larvae and nymphs on
rodents and the adult tick on domes
tic animals. The methods employed
consist of rodent destruction, dipping
of dofnestic animals, hand picking,
restriction of grazing, and the appli
cation of repellents.
The prevention of Rocky Mountain
spotted fever is directed mostly
against the tick. Ticks are to be
avoided in the infected region. If
it is necessary to work where these
ticks abound, the entire body and
clothing should be examined twice a
day for ticks.
The ultimate control of tick fever
depends on the suppression of the
Dermacentor venustus and related
ticks in infected areas. This, per
haps, is not so hopeless a task as it
may seem at first.
A parasite that feeds upon ticks
was introduced into this country in
1U26. It is too early to determine
the success of the parasite in the
United States. In France where this
insect is native, ticks are practically
exterminated in those places where
the parasite is found.
The serum of convalescent animals
is protective. It has also been dem
onstrated to have definite protective
palue for man.

in hopes of being able to make some
arrangements with the commission
looking to the surfacing of about
four miles of the Heppner-Hardman
highway. This would cover that part
of the road leading out from Hard
man towards Heppner, that has been
in a badly cut up condition during
the winter, and for much of the time
almost impassable. We understand
the commissioners had some pictures
of portions of this road, bowing the
tailed trucks and automobiles, as well
as some stretches of the road in
which the deep ruts made travel any
thing but a pleasure.
