The past two weeks has been a stren

the cases were serious enough to cause
permanent injury to the eyes, it was
very unpleasant while it lasted. There
is no accounting for the origin of the
trouble, but it proved highly contag

inflamed and the skin about the eye
took on a pink hue. Enterprise.

Jefferson. Is Proud
of School Debaters
Jefferson is justly proud of the
progress made by the High school de
bating team and are expecting to car
ry off the honors of the next debate to
be held here April 8th. So far they
have met none able to defeat them anil
while it is evident that the debaters
have the ability yet they give the
greater credit to Professors Glass and
Lombard because of the earnest effort
and ability of tho professors in their
training of the young people. Those
composing the teams are, negative:
Kenneth Armstrong (leader), Milton
Mason and Hazel Freeman. Tho af
firmative: Mary Chute (lender), levant
T'easo and Carl Booth. The teams are
now reduced to but two each negative
Kenneth Armstrong and Milton .Mason;
affirmative Mary Chute and Levant
The debate to be held April Sth is
between Jefferson's affirmative tenm
and North Bend negative High School
team. Which ever is the winner will
meet Umatilla, for the State Champion
ship at Kugeno sometime the last of
May. These debates have aroused a
great interest in the High school and
no doubt is of much benefit to the
pupils participating in the work.
Under the leadership of Professor
Glass tho Jefferson High school has
made wonderful progress and all pa
trons of the schools grade and high,
are anxiously awaiting the efforts of
the school board to secure his services
for the next term of school.
Reviewing the general condition of
Jefferson and surrounding country can
report, little sickness and general air
The potato growers received good
prices and had good yields. Among the
large growers are Mr. Thurston and Ter-
luine each having an acreage of 12 or
more and a yield of 300 to -100 bushels
per aero. One thing is to be consid
ered and should be heeded by all who
wish success in potato growing and that
is to procure such yields no small ones
are planted. The yield of corn on an
acreage of from 10 to .'SO acres was
from 40 to 70 bushels per acre.
Dr. Allen and Mr. Luny, who own a
largo prune orchard near here, have a
prospect of a bumper crop, and I pre
sume that Mr. Bens' fine .orchard of
prunes and peaches should be regarded

If one is desirous of viewing an
orchard of both prunes and peaches in
fine condition and especially that have
made a wonderful growth they should
not fail to see Mr. Bengs. Mr. David

The political atmosphere is but little
affected so far.
Some more permanent street improve
ment will soon be underway and ar
rangements are made, for the oiling of
all main traveled streets so when the
dusty times arrive no delay will force
our citizens to eat dust for a while.

The Grain Bag
Situation In 1916
The total number of uraiu bags
bought in Calcutti to date for use on
the Pacific coast is estimated by bag
men at not to exceed 31,000,000. Last
year the total importations on tho
coast were .rr,00O,OOO bags. There is
a very small carry-over stock from
Inst yeir, if further purchuses of bags
will be necessary or other methods of
handling grain provided, even with a
smaller crop, which it is now thought
miv be -j per cent less than that of
In tho meantime, practically no busi
ness is jmssing in the bag market. Buy
ers in tne country are holding bick anil
sellers are not trying to force busi
ness. The nominal rpiotntion of Wal
la Walla is 15 cents. No local bags are
on sale, but that, is the estimated cost
of laying them down from Seattle or
some other center.
There his been much interest iu tiie
trade in the affairs of the steamer
King Malcolm. The vessels was char
tered to bring 32,000,000 yards of bur
lap to this coast to be made into bags.
Then the British authorities requisition
ed er at Calcutta ind ordered the
cancellation of the charter, on tie
grounds that steamer of thut size should
not be sent so far away from the
sphere of possible military needs. As
the King Malcont had begun landing,
however, the cinccllution order was
later rescinded and sho will be allowed
to proceed. It is surmised that after
sho discharges her burlap at San Fran
cisco sue will load with a munition car
go for the Orient.
The British authorities not only con
trol the shipments of bags nnil burlip
out of Cab utt:i, but also dictate the
ports to which the cargoes shall go. On
this subject tho New Vork Journal of
"Bag manufacturers who have large
interests in the northwest are much
concerned regarding the elimination ef

"Manufacturers of bags who receive
