Card of THANKS--Relatives of

Director Wolcott of the United
States geological survey, in reply
to a letter written to the agricul
tural department by the president
of the Illinois Central railway com
pany making inquiry as to the pro
gress of the irrigation movement in
the west and its possibilities in
developing arid and semi-arid land,
that is of very great interest to the
people living west of the ninetieth
meridian in Nebraska, Colorado and
Wyoming. From the statements
of Director Wolcott the farmers of
these sections must certainly draw
the couclusion that there is little
reason to hope for increased rainfall
though a change of climate condi
tions, and that it is the part of
wisdom to develop all the possibili
ties of irrigation and to utilize by
storage and otherwise all the water
obtainable. Twenty years ogo the
theory was generally held that
cultivation and tree planting would
cause an increase of rainfall in the
semi-arid section, but the theory
has not held good either there or in
any other portion of the country.
"The only way," says Director
Wolcott, 44by which the climatic
changes, if any be made by the ad
vance of cultivation or by artificial
means, can be ascertained, is by
comparison of long series of records
kept at once place and under simi
lar conditions as to instruments
and methods. Unfortunately, we
do not have in the west many such
series; and even these are open to
doubt, on account of questions
omrr!?Tir ViTin M instruments
the kind of
and the care with which used.
it is now known that the
weather changes in any one locality
are so great that a series migfht "be
selected to show progressive change
in one direction or another, where
the whole record does not do this.
EESOLUTIONS OF RESPECT.
In memory of Brother J. "VV.
Reed. To officers and brothers of
rVYalla Walla Lodge jSTo. 56.LO.O.F:
Whereas: Our beloved brother
J. W. Reed departed this life on
July 25th, 1895, be it therefore
Resolved, That in the death of
Brother Reed our lodge has lost a
faithful and honored member; the
community a generous and re
spected citizen; his family an un
selfish brother and a kind and lov
ing father. Our brother was cut
olf from us and from all earthly
ties in the prime of his manhood,
having only reached the forty-sixth
milestone on life s journey. When
the grim messenger of death came
he was prepared to face him. The
lessons of Odd Fellowship were in
delibly impressed upon his mind
and memory, and he had so lived
that when the hour of death ap
proached he felt no fear, but calm
ly placed his trust in Him who
cures all pain, removes all sorrow
and who js a father to the father
less. Resolved. That we hereby ex
tend to the family of our deceased
brother our sympathy in this the
hour of sorrow, and especially to
the bereaved daughter who is now
the only surviving member of a
once happy family, we offer the as-r
surance that the kind care and
fatherly affection of which she has
been bereft,, will, in all possible
measure, be extended to her by
Be it further Resolved: That our
charter be draped for a period of
thirty days and that the above
memorial be spread upon our lodge
records; that a copy of the same be
forwarded to the family of our de
ceased brother and also be fur
nished for publication.
