A NEWSGATHERER'S DREAM The gentlemen who put the dispatches on the wire for the newspapers sometimes let their imaginations run riot, and say things they did not mean and that, to put it mild ly, never happened. A story seems incomplete to some of these dreamers unless it has all the proper trimmings. For instance: Yesterday a dispatch came over the wires concerning an Indian with a name as long as a clothes line and as unpronouncable as the names in the war zone of Poland which are pronounced with several sneezes, a few coughs and occasional calls for help. The only thing that happened to the aged Indian was that he skipped his wickeup and departed for the happy hunting grounds of his fathers, and theirs, at the ripe age of 120 years. The sender of the story embellished it by saying the deceased "was 16 years old when the war of 1812 occurred and he remembered some of its principal episodes until the last." There were no whites on the coast in 1912, and especially around Pendleton where the old Indian lived and died, or for many years after. There were no newspapers in circulation in that section. then, not even the East Ore gonian, from which Ayoushakatsagom that was the name he uncomplainingly carried all those 120 years could have gleaned anything about the war of 1812 or anything else, and besides What's-his-name couldn't read. There were no telephone lines and consequently that source of information was closed to him. The movies had not arrived and even Ezra Meeker was not due for many years later. From these few facts the opinion is forced upon us that Ayoushakatsagom knew no more about the war of 1812 than he did about the spelling of his name, even though this was done in the college way by ear. The chances are Ayou never heard of the war of 1812 until many years after it was over, and perhaps never at all. He chased the nimble jackrabbit to his lair and did his business for him with a spear or skillfully aimed ar row, and knew nothing even of the pale face brother who later would come to settle on the fertile banks of the Umatilla and turn the bunch grass hills where Ayous cayuse waved the black banner of his tail in the chinool: winds that drifted up from Biggs and waxed fat thereon that is on the bunchgrass and turned them into fields of waving yellow grain that is the hills while Ayou slipped his supple little brown body into the limped waters of the blue Umatilla changing their limpidness and also the color somewhat thereby; ignorant of the fact that Uncle Sam, who was quite young in those days had gotten into a row with the mother of the country and was un mercifully chastising the old lady in a very ungentlemanly manner. The impression becomes more and more vivid as the matter is viewed in all its lights that Ayoushakatsagom was just a nice old Indian, after he was old, and never heard of the war of 1812. The newsgatherer was a romancer, a dreamer, that was all, and the deceased In dian never did it. The longer Mr. Louis W. Hill remained in Oregon the more peeved he got. Of course he has a right to get sore at Oregon whether he has any reason for doing so or not. He has a right to have a very bad opinion of the state and to tell it so, if he feels that way. Oregon will have to stand it and will survive even the enmity and anger of Mr. Hill. No one knows what he is sore about, probably not even himself. But while intimating he will do noth ing more for Oregon it might be well for him to tell tw the things he intimates he has done for the state. So far as the Hills are concerned, Oregon owes them nothing. In this state, at least, they were not empire builders but just exploiters. They built a railroad paralelling the Southern Pacific through the Willamette valley, and a depot at Portland patterned after the antique model of the S. P. landing scow in Salem. If Mr. Hill feels justified in getting sore because his efforts in this state have not caused universal applause, he will have to go his way. He can take his dishes and doll baby and hunt some one else to play with. Oregon can swing on its own gate. The latest news from the hot district is to the effect that the present hot spell which began July 12 will be still hotter for the next three days, at least. There has been an average of four degrees above seasonable temper atures during all that time. The weather man guesses for only three days ahead, and the cooking may continue for some time yet. Phoenix, Arizona, held the record yester day with 106, but Quincy, Illinois, was a close second with 105. Chicago still swelters, and swims for relief. Four deaths due to heat were reported from there and 45 cities report temperatures of 90 or above. The middle, west continues to swelter, and lengthen its already long death list from heat. Estimates yesterday placed the number of deaths since the hot spell began at above 200, and the end not in sight. A thunder storm eased things for a short time at Chicago but it was only just a breathing spell. Here in old Oregon everybody was comfortable during the day and as evening drew on wraps or coat became a necessity. It is always that way and what we call hot weather here would be considered deliciously cool back in the sweatbox zone. When the Norris amendment to the navy appropria tion bill came up for a vote recently both senators from Oregon voted for the amendment which would have put off the construction of proposed ships indefinitely. There were but three senators from states bordering on the oceans who voted for this amendment. Connecticut furnished one and Oregon the other two. Chamberlain can hardly plead ignorance as an excuse, for he being chairman of the militaiy committee should know some thing also about the navy. There was an intimation in yesterday's dispatches that the Deutschland might make her stay indefinite. It seems she is waiting to hear from the Bremen, and if any thing should happen to her it is possible the big diver will hesitate about making the return trip. However no. one knows anything about it and it is all guess work as to when she will go, or whether she will go at all. In the meantime she remains the great mystery, only that, until she does something, whatever it may be. Rev. Charles F. Aked, of San Francisco, who was with the Ford peace delegation and who, according to tile dispatches at the time, stirred up trouble among the party and disagreed with everybody, has resigned, giving as a reason that he could not agree with Ford. In other words he is of such a disposition he quarrels with his meal ticket. He improved peace chances among the party greatly by resigning. It sounds rather odd that story from Eureka, Cali fornia, about the attempt to salvage the steamer Bear that went ashore near there some time ago, by landsmen. A gang of loggers supplied with a big donkey engine will tackle the job soon and with the aid of pumps to make a channel for her expect to haul her back into deep water. Uncle Samuel will sell a little bunch of timber in Hood River valley, amounting to about 3:50,000,000 feet. At a dollar a thousand it will require $:r0,000 to pay the stumpage, and if a fellow had that much money what would he want with so much lumber?

It's seldom that I give advice, to readers, as to diet; the doctors do it, and their price has started many a riot. "Excelsior and basswood meal," the gifted doctor hollers, "you ought to eat, if good you'd feel now cough up seven dollars, lhe summer s hard on brain and nerve, and makes us total-lossy: some simple rules we should observe, if we'd be feeling flossy. We ought to fill ourselves with greens, toToastin' ears be treated; for eating perk and beefsteak means that we'll be overheated. You wouldn't wear your winter duds when solar rays are busy, yet eating meat and starchy spuds is surely just as dizzy. I journey forth with stately tread, where garden sass is growing, and eat a luscious cabbagehead, when hun ger's pangs I'm knowing. No well done- porterhouse for me! That diet is unholy; I pluck a turnip from the tree, and Fletcherize it slowly. No sweetened drinks, - but Adam's ale, around my stomach washes, and when I j hunger I regale my works with prunes and squashes. By ' eating things like these my health is buttressed strong jand pillared, and I will bet a slice of wealth that 1 can whip Jess Willard. 1 luf " Plans and estimates of cost for the reclamation of 00,000 acres of land in 30,000 acres along White river in Was co county, have just been completed by !

Will Submit Plan for Relief of Poland London, July 20 The British for ei)u office will submit to American Ambassador Page tomorrow a proposal that President Wilson appoint a com mittee of citizens of neutral nations for Polish" relief work.

' ' Country's Fruit Crop Will Be Below Normal Washington, July 20. The IP 16 fruit crop will be below that of 1013 in prac tically every class, it was predicted today by the United States Bureau of Crop Estimates. Especially marked will be the decline in the peach crop, if present indica tions hold good. In this line, the out put, it is estimated, will fall off 11,000, 000 bushels for the year, the govern ment experts placing the probable fig urns at 42,123.000 bushels. The national yield in apples, the fore most fruit crop, will decline, says the department, from a total of 70,070.000 barrels in 14I5 to 72,531,000 for the present season.
