Bandon World: Bear arc quite plen
tiful in western Oregon tins year, at
least that is the conclusion reached
i from several reports from nearby places
I of bear signs, and the fact two large
j auimals have been killed in this vicin-
, itv within the last few weeks.
I The latest bruin bagged was killed
by George Cox, of Bear creek. The ani
mul was a black bear, said to hnve been
the largest killed in those parts tor a
: number of years. It was notr in verv
good condition, but would have tipped
the scales at 400 pounds. The hide was
in fair condition to make a good robe
Astorian: One hundred and seventy
five cans of trout fry, including both
the Rainbow and Eastern Brook, arriv
ed in Astoria Friday evening and yes
terday were distributed throughout the
county, several strenms receiving large
numbers of the fish. The carload offish
was in charge of Messrs. Crnig and Ho
gan, of the Bonneville hatcheries, from
which the shipment came. The fish
were handled promptly by the members
of tho Astoria Hod ana Gun club and it
is doubtful if any fish wero lost at all
in transferring them to the streams.
THE REGULATION SMILE -
There's mure darned regulations in I hi m army life, b'licvo nie,
Than fleas on nil our army pets or riiindrops in the sen; .
Our regulation army mules put regulation hay.
And when they kick they hnve to kick in regulation style.
You simply have to take it with a regulation smile.
For everything is organized by men who know (he game.
And it's not for such ns you and nie to grumble and complain
Ho when the sergeant, cusses you in regulation stylo
Just do ,vour little duty wilh u regulation smile,
There's regulation uniforms and regulation shoes
And regulation everything but regulation booze.
And if you fail to do the things tho regulation say
They stand you up and shoot you in the regulation way
With regulation muskets filled with regulation lead
And read the regulations for a sermon when you're dead.
For everything is out and dried by men who know tho game
And it's not for such as you and me to grumble and complain.
Ho when the sergeant damns your soul in regulation style,
Just say, "I'm reining, sergeant," wilh n regulation smile.
There's just one consolation, friends, for such as you and me
The regulations let lis sleep from taps to reveille,
Unless the bloomiu' tents. blow down or someone's taken sick,
And sergeant says, "I 'limb out of there and get tlmt stretcher quick!"
And you r limit out and nib your eyes in regulation style,
And wonder what has happened to your regulation smile.
( everything is cut and dried by men who know (he game.
And it's not for such as yon and me to grumble and complain
Itut when they die and Ko below in regulation slyly
We'll heat the fire hotter with a regulation smile!

Medford Sun: The loss of pears and
apples throughout the seetiou within a
radius of 15 miles of Medford will not
exceed 10 per cent, according to C. C.
Cnte, county pathologist, whose men
have been investigating the loss nt var
ious orchards, occasioned by the electric
storm of Friday afternoon, which was
(followed by a third of an inch of rain
fall. The loss tails almost entirety
upon the pears.
The Rogue river valley is just good
enough without water for irrigation
to keep irrigation from being gen
eral, says the Grants Pass Cou
rier. If crops could not have been
grown here without the artificial ap
plication of water, the valley would
today be producing ten-fold the crops
it is today. Had it been classed as
an arid region, capital would have
been readily available to bring the
waters, which flow here in nbund
aace, upon the acres. The results
produced by the application of water
prove the futility of dry farming in
southern Oregon. The lnnds once placed
under water are far too valuable to
go without water.
That the dreaded Canadian thistle
is getting a start in Benton and
nearly every other county in the
Willamette valley is the report of
road supervisors. The counties are
realizing that forcible measures must
bo taken to rid the farms of the dan
gerous pest before it spreads and
gets beyond -control. The Oregon
laws are veiy stringent and impose
heavy penalties on the owners of land
who do not exterminate the thistles. A
salesman of farm machinery who travels
over nearly all of western Oregon stated
that in the western parts of Clackamas
and Marion counties the thistle is get
ing a firm foothold.

New York's big car strike, which
threatened to tie up all the transpor
tation systems of the city, surface, sub
surface and overhead, began with few
iiiuuifestutions of disorder. There were
however, a' few cases of rioting prompt
ly cheeked by the police. Frank Lord,
deputy police commissioner, told a meet
ing of strikers that union men had as
much , right us other citizens to rido
ou street cars, and that there was no
law to prevent them from soliciting
motormen and conductors to joiu the un
ion and quit work so long as there was
no effort at intimidation. Ho said the
policemen on the cars would not inter
fere with that right. He also praised
the orderly methods of the union. Some
high police officials complained that
trolley officials seemed to be hysterical
and had called for help to quell purely
imaginary disorders. There was so lit
tle disorder at one time that many of
the policemen who had been mobilized
at ubout a hundred points iu the danger
zone were allowed to go home. Depart
ment heads figured that they could
guard all power houses, bums and cars.
