Anent Forest Fires.
Springwater, Ore., Oct. 27, 1902. The
iimoerman: n id with pleasure that I
comply with your request of the 25th
instant. The damage done in Clacka
mas county by the tire of September 11
13 is rather hard to estimate. The com
mittee here, of which your correspond
, ent is secretary, are gathering data as
fast as possible. The information I am
giving you in this letter only covers a
territory of about 40 square miles, that
is, a stnpabout ten miles longand about
four miles wile. The strip includes the
settlements of Kickapoo, Ilocky Point
and Springwater, lam unable at this
time to give the losses sustained at Bea
ver Creek, Highlands, Viola and other
points in the county; but I may in the
near future be able to supply the defi
ciency. In the neighborhood of which
I speak. 101 farmers have lost in the fire,
and their losses range from f25.00 to
$2,700. We have estimated the loss so
far at $55,545, but these-figurea will be
revised some, and the total amount Mill
be increased a few thor.pand dollars. We
have not estimated the loss to orchards,
fruits, or timber. The loss to fruit will
be about $1,200, at present pricesof dried
prunes and apples. The total amount
as above does not mean what it will
cot-t to rebuild, but about the cash value
of the old buildings and fences, neither
have we estimated the decreased value
of stock, caused by the forced Felling of
the same made necessary by the total
destruction of hay and grain in many
instances. To be fair with those who
have lost, I will say that $100,000 will
barely put them in as good a condition
as before the fire.
Now a word as to the timber. This
part of Clackamas is not noted for its
first class timber.for, as a rulo, the trees
are short and very limby. I find by
close inquiry that about 10 sections have
been burned over, and with the excep
tions of about two sections, the timber
stumpage would amount to no more
than for cordwood. A good, fair esti
mate of the loss to timber would be
about $7,500 probably 80,000,000 feet,
and this would make fair lumber if
sawn in the next three or four vears.
While the people of Springwater and
vicinity have received considerable aid
from Oregon City and elsewhere in the
way ol clothing, money, etc., for their
immediate wants,yet much suffering will
be experienced before spring. Whilo
losses have been very heavy, int-urance
has been light, as only a very few were
insured, and then for only a nominal
I admire the position you are taking
in regard to setting out forest fires, and
could you see the devastation to the farm
ers here, from the carelessness of hunt
ers and campers with their fires, you
would say that a law-making it a misde
meanor to hunt or put out a camp fire
during the dry senson would be about
the proper thing. Give us more strin
gent fire laws then call out the army
and navy to enforce them.

According to the yearly custom of
our people, it falls upon the president at
this season to appoint a day of iestival
and thanksgiving to God. Over a cen
tury and a quarter has passed since this
country took its place among the nations
of the earth and during that time we
have hud on the whole more to be
thankful for than has fallen to the lot
of any other people,. Generation after
generation has grown to manhood and
passed away. Each has had to bear its
peculiar burdens, each to face its special
crisis and each has known years of grim
trial, when the country was menaced by
malice, domestic or foreign, when the
hand of the lrd was heavy upon it in
death by flood or pestilence, when in
bodily distress "and anguish of soul it
paid the penalty of folly and a froward
heart. Nevertheless, decade by decade,
we have struggled onward and upward,
we now enjoy material well being, and
under the favor of the Most High we are
striving earnestly to receive moral and
The year that has just closed has
been one of peace and overflowing
plenty. Rarely has any people enjoyed
greater prosperity than we are now en
joying. For this we render heartfelt
and Bolemn thanks to the giver of good
and we seek to prai-e Him not by words
only, but by deeds, by the way in which
we do our duty to ourselves and to our
Now, therefore, I, Theodore Roosevelt,
president ol the United States, do
hereby designato as a day of general
thanksgiving, Thursday, the 27th of the
coming November, and do recommend
that throughout the land the people
cease from their ordinary occupations
and in their several homes and places of
worship render thanks unto Almighty
God for the manifold blessings of the
In witness whereof I have hereunto
set my hand and caused the seal of the

New York, Nov. 4. Diverse as the
plow and the automobile would seem at
first glance, Dr. Uatiing, the famous in
ventor of the gun that bears his name,
has hitched the two together and made
farming a "thing of beauty and a joy
The hardest farm libc-r is thus re
duced to a pastime. One more occupa
tion for the horse is destroyed, and
one man with an automobile plow can
do the work that formerly .required 15
pairs of hands and 30 hordes.
The Gatling motor plow is driven by a
gasoline engine of sufficient power to
propel it t anv desired depth down to
twelve inches.' The truck is built like
the trucks used with traction engines,
except that the steam boiler is replaced
by a strong platform on which is placed
the gasoline engine, which is connected
to the traction gearing by series of
wheels; to this "truck is attached a set
of disk plows, which may be geared to
run at any depth or any angle needed to
gie the liest results when plowing.
With this machine it is estimated that
one mau can plow from 30 to 35 acres in
one day. To plow this number of acres
in one day with the ordinary plow would
require 15 men ami 30 horses, so when it
comes to cultivating one, of our large
Western farms, it is easy to estimate the
large drove of horse and the great num
ber of men required to do the plowing
and the immense cost to the owner to
house lnd feed them.
All that is required to operate the Gat
ling plow is for the farmer to sit upon
the cushioned seat of the truck and work
the controller, which is uot unlike those
attached to automobiles; or, if he hap
pens to be indisposed, his wife can take
his place. ...
It is generally estimated that the cost
of plowing under ordinary conditions is
$1.5i) per acre. Then the further prep
aration ot the ground oy narrowing nnu
rolling costs another 50 cents er acre.
With the Gatling machine the ground
beoomes thoroughly pulverized and the
To'liinr i not rvoilired.
A harrow attached to the machine will.1
do the smoothing, ami a aatA dvitl at
tallied behind this will do the seed in 2
so that the plowing, harrowing and
seeding may all be done with one pas
sage of the machine and at just about
one-fourth the cost of the present meth
ods, thereby enabling the wheat grower
of the United States to compete in the
markets of the world with a profit to
Breath iuir Wells of Nebraska.
In a recent paper published by the
United States geological survey, on wells
and windmills in jNebraska, mention is
made of the interesting phenomena of
the breathing or blowing wells which
are found distributed throughout a large
portion of the state of Nebraska. These
wells are of the driven type mostly in
use upon the plains, but are distill'
guished from those of ordinary char
acter by a remarkable and unexplained
egress and ingress of currents of air
which produce dibtmctly audible sounds
and give the names variously applied to
them of breathing, sighing, blowing or
roaring wells, according to their charac
ters in different places. The air currents
are readily tested with the flames of
candleB, or by dropping chaff or feathers
into the well tubes, there are periods
when these wells blow out for several
days, and equal periods when their air
currents are reversed. It has been oh
served that the blowing occurs with
changes of the barometer. Some wells
are found to bo most audible when the
wind is from the northwest, with a rise
in wuter level ; but with a change of
wind, air is drawn in and the water is
observed to sink. During the nroeress
01 a low-oarometer area over one of
these regions, wind is violently expelled
from the wells, with a noiBe distinctly
audible for several rods. Professors
Lovelandand Swezey, of the University
01 jeurasKa, nave maue observations on
a well of this nature in Perkins county,
and found that its breathing periods
were exactly coincident with the baro
the citizens of the region have at
tempted many explanations of the wells.
Some have reasoned that the blowing is
probably due to the liberation of gas
produced from petroleum, and that as
petroleum is a natural distillation from
great coal fields, there must be an
abundant supply of the latter mineral
beneath the surface. Fortunes have
been staked upon this deduction and
much time consumed in a fruitless
search for coal. Others have noticed
the change of current which some wells
show every twelve hours, morning and
evening, and have thought that this reg
ular oscillation was due to a tidal action
of the sheet of water, erroneously con
sidering the latter as a great subterra
nean lako. The phenomena are most
frequently attributed by scientific ob
servers to atmospheric pressure, which,
though probably exerting great influ
ence, is uot necessarily the whole cause.
The material through which the wells
are driven may throw some light on
their peculiarities. In southeastern Ne
braska a layer of dense limestone about
4 inches thick lies beneath 50 to 100 feet
of subsoil. Below the limestone is found
water-bearing gravel. When the lime
stone covering the water-bearing beds is
penetrated, water under slight pressure
rises about one foot. The water-bearing
layer is very porous and must always
contain more or less air. As the air
above and the air inclostd in the gravels
below are alike subject to the fluctua
tions of the barometer, it follows that if
the surface air is rendered less dense the
air below will pass out through the well
openings until equilibrium between the
rarer air and denser air is established,
the opposite effect will follow during a
period of high pressure. Still, this ex
planation, plausible as it is, hardly ac
counts for the force with which the ail
is expelled from some of the wells, and
a more comprehensive study of the
problem is needed to satisfactorily ex
plain all the phenomena.
l)o Not Sleep on Your Left Side.
When a patient complains of a bad
taste in his mouth every morning on
waking up, says a physician, the first
question I ask him is as to the position
he assumes when going to sleep. An
immense number of people sleep on the
loft side, and this is the most common
cause of the unpleasant taste which is
generally attributed to dyspepsia. If a
meal has been taken within two or
three hours of going to bed, to sleep on
the left side is to give the stomach a
task which it is difficult in the extreme
to perform. The student of anatomy
knows that all food enters and leaves
the Btoinach on the right side, and hence
sleeping on the left Bide soon after eat
ing involves a sort of pumping operation
which is anything but conducive to
The action of the heart is also inter
fered with considerably, and the lungs
are unduly compressed. It is probable
that lying on the back is the most nat
ural position, but few can rest easily so,
and hence it is best to cultivate the
habit of sleeping on the right side. It
is very largely a matter of habit, and the
sooner it is acquired the better for the
sleeper and the worse for the physician.
Another sleeping habit that is inju
rious, especially to the lungs, is that of
curling up, drawing the shoulders to
gether and thus diminishing the capacity
of the chest and compressing the lungs.
Great harm may result from this habit
and it should be carefully guarded

A Nigger'i Confession. 1
Editor Glacier: I noticed in your last
issue an interesting problem relative to
the stealing of some applet by some
"niggers." You seem to think they
were not Btolen in Hood River valley. I
desire to confess and tell the whole
truth. They were stolen quite recently
from a prominent fruit grower 8 orchard
on the East Side, and they were of the
Ben Davis variety. We made a great
mistake, owing to the reputation of
the grower. W e didn't suppose ttsat we
could find such worthless apples in a
first-class orchard. I have disposed of
my share ol the apples stolen to a sole
leather manufacturer in Portland. I
didn't know my pals had given me away
so badly until 1 read the account in
your paper, but since our actions have
been published, and I confess to the low
act of helping to steal a sack of Ben
Davis apples, I will now tell just how
many we stole :
When we hid the sack in the barn, it
contained just 79 apples. The first nig
ger threw one away and took of the
remainder, which was 26, leaving 52
apples in the sack. The second nigger
found 52 apples, threw one away and
took 1-3 of the remainder, which was 17,
leaving 34 in the sack. The third nigger
(myself) found 34 apples, I threw one
away and took of the remainder,
which was 11, leaving 22 m the sack.
The next morning when all three of us
met to disguise our distrust of the other
follows, we found 22 apples; we threw
one awav and each took seven.
Now, Mr. Editor, I feel awful bad
over the publicity of this whole affair;
more on account of us getting tooled in
the dark and going to so much, trouble
to get nothing but Ben Davis apples, I'll
confess my mistake and will never visit
any more orchards after dark.
Say, Mr. Editor, since I commenced
to write you I have heard from the sale
of my Ben Davis apples. The tannery
company says that they are just what
they want, the fungus and brown rust
on them make the skin very desirable
for leather, and the pulp will be ground
up and compressed into patent shoe
heels. I am lucky after all to find such
an easy market for my Ben Davis. Now
don't expose me for confessing to you, I
have a kind heart and a clear conscience
and could not bear this burden any
longer. Your friend,
ONE OP THE JMOOKRS. .
