According to a report recently
sent out from tho State Engi
neer's offlco Silvics Hivor is sec
ond in importanco in the statu so
far as covering irrigated lands is
concerned. This, too, without
any storage system but from tho
natural unobstructed flow other
than local dams. Powder Kivor
is credited with covering tho
greatest area of any stream in
tho stato and Silvies is second.
In n press dispatch from Salem
to tho Portland Journal says:
"In Harney valley proper G5,
O'JG acres of land are being irri
gated from tho waters of the
Silvies River, while M,633 acres
additional aboye Burns are being
irrigated from tho same stream.
With one exception this is tho
greatest amount of land in tho
state being irrigated from one
stream. Tho Powder river is the
only one that exceeds the Silvics,
furnishing water to 8f,112 acres.
These figures are according to a
report recently finished in the
ofiice of the stafo engineer."
Under proper handling of tho
flood waters of Silvies River an
enormous area can be reclaimed
and it is thus that Harney Valley
will come into its own so far as
agriculture is concerned. We
have our dry farm experiment
station which will be a valuable
adjunct as it will used to demon
strate the propor method of cul
ture to conserve the moistureand
thus the water may bo used to
cover a much largor area than
ordinarily covered under irriga
tion projects. We have enough
water to cover the entire valley
by economical use and right
methods.
Ida M. Tarbell Opposed
To Woman Suffrage
Ida M. Tarbell nays one of her
chief objections to women suff
rage is that "it will take the at
tention of women from what I
believe to bo their real civic
duties by interesting them in tho
political game, when they should
be concentrating their attention
on specific civil work."
All right minded women want
this work done, but differ as to
the method. The suffragist
thinks the ballot the panacea for
all ills of society. The anti-sufr-ragist
believes that the constant
and effective influence now exer
ted by women of legislation and
public affairs is due to tho intelli
gence of tho woman who advo
cates good causes. A woman now
interested in the matter of public
welfaro is known to bo unselfish
and with only the interest of her
cause at heart. The same wom
an under woman suffrage is only
one of many political units, with
ignorant and indifferent women
yoters added to tho other ele
ment arrayed against her success.
A few women today idealize
the ballot, while what will really
solve juvenile delinquency, in
temperance, tho whiteslave traf
fic and the social evil is education,
education and moro education in
the homes and from ihe earliest
hour of childhood, and therein
Ilea the civic duty of woman,
bigger than tho casting of any
ballot, and absorbing enough to
occupy all tho women of Oregon
for all time.
It is to keen tho all women
of this State out of the "political
game" and leave them free for
this greatest of all their duties
that we ask you to vote against
the woman suffrage amendment
at the coming election.

Of Work For The Steel And Ballast
Gangs Employed On Oregon Eastern
A recent special from Vale to

cial train bearing the officials of
the Oregon Short Line, Julius
Krullschnitt, W. II. Bancroft,
Carl Stradley and others, passed
over the lines of that company in
this section this week and while
hero concluded that construction
work on the railroad from Vale
to Dog Mountain, a branch of tho
Oregon Eastern, could not be
economically handled during the
winter season, and hence recom
mended a suspension of construc
tion. Five carloads of material,
consisting of ties, spikes, rails,
angle bars and other material,
have been brought to the mater
ial yards in Vale and stored pre
paratory to suspension of track
work.
Theentire force of the steel
and ballast gangs has been sent
to Richfield, Idnho, to complete
the Owinza-Boiso cut-ofr and put
it in sjiape for traffic. Tho yard
force, consisting of 50 Austrians,
has been sent to Burley to com

tion there.

OUR GIRLS WEAR
SOME WRONG CLOTHES
That's Why They Have Spinal Cur
vature More Than The Men, So
Says The Oregon Agricultural Pro
fessor, And Suggests A More Sane
Apparel To Prevent Such Evils
That girls wear foolish clothing
and for that reason more fre-1
fluently have spinal curvature
than men, was the assertion of i
Prof. Miriam Thayer, director'
of physical training for women I
at the Oregon Agricultural Col-'
lege in the first of a series of
"health talks" before the young
women of tho institution this
week.
Miss Thayer explained to the
girls the sort of shoes they should
buy for winter wear, and why
some styles cause "fiat foot", of
which she has found many cases
in her examinations of the phy
sical condition of the students
under her care.
Tight belts and tight clothing
of all sorts, especially corsets,
were condemned as the great
cause of much of the spmal cur
vature which occurs far more
frequently among women than
among men. In the last "few
days a number of more or less
serious cases of such spinal trou
ble have been discovered among
the girl students, and special
treatments are being prescribed
in the gymnasium to correct the
uiiiicuiiy.
In older to give the director
more complete information on
which to base her prescription of
exercises for the individual girls,
each ono was given two cards to I
in- filled out, one to contain the!
iH-rsonal and familv liistnrv tlw
otfiera schedule of exercises to!
bo taken regularly. I
The history eard contains on
one side a record of the illness
or ailments to which the girl or
her family have been subject. 111
effects following, strains, injur
ies or operations undergone, pre
vious physical education and two
special questiens: Are you inter
ested in having an erect carriage
and perfect physique? and,
Enough so to work hard for bet
ter physical development?
On the reverse of the card are
the name and address, date and
place of birth, birthplace of
father and mother and their na
tionality, the father's occupation
when the child was born, resem
blance physically to father or
mother, if either parent is dead,
a statement of the cause of death,
tho health of the parent before
the birth of the child and at pre
sent, the number of brothers and
sisters and, if any are dead, the
cause, the number of years lived
in the city, suburbs or country,
the apetite digestion, susceptibi
lity to colds, and whether subject
to headaches or backaches.
If there is any trouble as to
breathing equally well through
'both nostrils, trouble with the
eyes or ears, fainting or short
ness of breath, it is recorded.
Do you sleep well and how many
hours? How many hours in the
day are spent in the open air?
Do you use stimulants in any
form? These are some of the
duestions asked. The girls must
also state whether they habitual
ly use medicines, drugs or head
ache powders, the kind of work
they are most often engaged in,
