TTHE matter of getting the Hepp-
ner-Spray sector or trie uregon
Washington highway on the state
road map, has been one of the puz
zles that the Morrow county court
has been trying these several years
to work out The county has, In
cooperation with the State High
way commission and the Bureau of
Public Roads, made some progress
in the construction of this link, and
has spent a large sum of money
thereon, but In spite of all their ef
forts, they have failed to get the
commission to place the road on the
map. It would seem that there Is
a similar situation facing the peo
ple of Wheeler county with refer
ence to the Service Creek-Mitchell
sector of the Ochoco highway, and
the commercial club at Fossil are
now getting busy and will see what
they can do by presenting the ques
tion of state cooperation to the leg
islature, now in session at Salem.
Wrhi!e the commercial body at Fos
sil is much interested in the road
that lies within their own borders,
they realize that, their county has
also spent a large sum of money in
cooperating on the construction of
the Heppner-Spray cutotT.
They have, in a set of resolutions,
called attention of the legislature
to the two roads, and are praying
that thev both be placed on the
state highway map and made units
thereof, so that in tne regular
course of events the state highway
department will be justified in help
ine to complete the gaps.
As the resolutions, presented here
with, speak for themselves, we are
not making further comment, ex
cept to say that we hope that the
commercial interests of Heppner
will fall in line immediately and
add to the work already done by
the Fossil Commerial club their
united support, and promptly pre
pare a strong set of resolutions
memoralizing the legislature to take
this action. We are surely as great
ly interested in our particular piece
of road as is Fossil, and should not
, hesitate to back up their proposals
We give herewith the resolutions in

THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
Psalm 19:7-14; 2 Timothy 3:14-17
BET SAMUEL D. PRICE, D. D.
The Christians' Sacred Book is a
descriptive statement of the Bible.
In fact, it is a library consisting of
sixty-six books, divided into the Old
and New Testaments. "How We
Got Our English Bible," by J. Pat
terson Smyth, answers many ques
tions in the mind of every investi
gator. Beyond all human Bources
this Book comes from God. Rev.
F. B. Meyer, D. D., says, "Inspira
tion consists in the divine quality
that inheres in the Bible." It is
certainly different and superior to
every other book and is well called
the Book of Books. One cannot
claim to be well educated who is
not conversant with the general
content thereof. Dr. Meyer also
states, "The best argument for the
Bible is the character is creates,"
and William E. Gladstone declared,
"The Sunday school is the world's
greatest institution for popularizing
the world's greatest Book."
Read this Book through, and do
so aa often as possible. Then com
mit many chosen passages to mem
ory. One of these will be the nine
teenth Psalm, from which the first
scripture portion is taken today. If
you wish to note many terms for
the Scriptures read Psalm 119,
v. here there is some mention in each
of the 176 verses. In spite of its
30 miles on the Heppner-Spray route
and that said construction would save '
approximatetly 45 miles on the route
from Arlington. London, ana i-ossu to
connect up with the Ochoco Highway

SDrav sector of the Oregon-WashinK-
ton Highway on the Highway map, the
same would De maintained in gooa con
dition and by putting the Service Creek.
Mitchell marKet roaa on me state
Highway map and completing this
stretch of road in the near future, the
said highways will be linked up to each
other in the most direct route that can
be obtained, and
WHEREAS, the completion of the
Service Creek, Mitchell highway will
give a shorter and more direct route to
all cars on said highways to Prlneville,
Bend, Klamath Falls and Eugene.
WHEREFORE, we the members of
the Fossil Commercial Club respect
fully petition the Honorable Thirty
Fifth Legislative Assembly of the State
of Oregon, that the Mitchell. Service
Creek market road, in Wheeler County,
Oregon, be incorporated Into the State

A merger of the two daily papers
at Baker was consummated the past
week, and the announcement is
made that beginning with February
1, the papers will appear as one,
published by the Baker Democrat-
Herald Co. The new owners are
Bernard Mainwaring and Luclan P.
Arant, who have been publishing
the Baker Evening Herald, and will
now publish the Baker Democrat-
Herald, having formed an jsu.uuu
corporation for that purpose. The
Morning Democrat was the pioneer
paper of Baker, and one of the old
est daily papers in the Pacific
Northwest It was established in
1870 and the Evening Herald in
1901. The new publishers announce
that there will be many improve
ments In the mechanical appearance
and news service of the new paper,
all of which will make it an out
standing publication among the
small city dailies of the state, we
congratulate Baker and the pub
lishers on this consolidation, and
believe that it will prove of mutual
benefit The publishers are fine, up
standing young men, who have ac
quired sufficient experience in the
newspaper game to be able to put
across just -such a paper as tney
have planned for their community,
and the growing city of Baker will
not lack in proper representation
from this quarter.

other descriptions in that Psalm

Paul in charging Timothy refers
him to the "sacred writings" in

his youth. Thereby "the man of

In the next few articles I shall go
quite thoroughly into the subject of
skin texture, telling you of the va
rious types of skins, so that you
will know whether you possess a
thick, thin or normal skin, and how
to give it the proper care.
This ia a most important subject,
for skins differ just as much as tem
peraments, color of hair, color of
eyes, or body build. And to my
mind one of the greatest follies or
I might say one of the most griev
ous mistakes Is that women simply
treat their skins in a general way
as thought all skins were alike.
I should like to say that no two
skins are exactly alike, yet I hesi
tate to emphasize that too strongly
for fear you will throw your hands
up in despair, thinking the task of
knowing what to do is hopeless.
The preparations you put on the
skin must differ almost as much In
texture as the skins themselves; so
you can easily see why one cream
or lotion cannot do everything for
a skin, any more than one medicine
can have a two-fold purpose.
This I shall have to take up step
by step in my series of articles, as
there is too much to discuss in one
day's talk. But there is one thing
all skins have in common, and that
is this: The general health and
beauty depend very largely on the
general condition of the system and
upon the health habits of the indi
vidual. It makes no difference

Mr. Lucey Half Right.
Wise Kin?, Amanullah.
There is to be an extra session
of Congress, so well informed
Washington reports, and the farm
er will wait for "relief" until the
new Congress gathers.
Mr. Hoover probably wishes that
milestone were passed.
The farm question is this:
How can you make those engaged
whether your skin is thick, thin or
normal. If your diet is composed
of the wrong food, the system can
not take care of it properly, and it
is bound to be reflected by the com
To keep the skin healthy and at
tractive it is essential to lead a reg
ular life, taking plenty of exercise,
eating the right foods, watching the
elimination, getting plenty of sleep
and keeping your nerves relaxed as
much as possible.
If these things are not right you
cannot expect your health and in
turn, your skin to be right. Again,
as I have told you many times be
fore, a certain amount of the pois
ons of the system must be thrown
off through the pores of the skin,
and if you do not keep the pores
free, you cannot expect them to be
able to pass off this way.
It is wrong to think that the
rough, yellow, outside skin of an
orange constitutes the entire Bkin,
for the real skin is at least three
eights of an inch deep. Think not
that a mere soap and water wash
ing, or applying to the surface an
inactive cold cream that scarcely
removes the soil and dirt, will thor
oughly cleanse the skin!
It is the thorough cleansing of
the under skin that counts. The
soil and dirt that are lodged in the
pores can only be reached by using
creams that will penetrate beneath
the surface of the skin. And in my
aritclcs following I shall tell you the
best ways to cleanse the various
kinds of skin so that you will know
how to treat the type you possess.
