tut Cu(aAcZ- IflCQlIt VOLUME 27 TOLEDO, LINCOLN COUNTY, OREGON, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 6th, 1920 NUMBER 50 t 2Xu (J ytjJr . M . 'vk:v.' '' 7i SILETZ Slletz hag boon favored this week with entertainments. Tuesday morning we bid with us County Agent J. B. Cooler and Prof. Theodore Schifper of U. S. Biologist Survey. These gentlemen were brought to Slletz by Grant King with his auto while the Depoe bridge is being built. Some difficulty is now encountered In going back and forth from Toledo to Slletz. Mr. Schipper gave a lecture at the public school on moles and other rodents. A good audience was present. The farmers were well represented and the pupils aud teachers of thi school were out In a body. Siletz Valley has about ten thousand moles, more or less. The Professor was introduced by Mr. Cooter who also made some (interest ing remarks on the subject. The speaker explained the nature of the mole and his work. He lias two run aways, one near the surface of the ground where he goes along and push es up the dirt with his nose and fore feet. This trail is easily traced. He is hunting something to eat. His main diet is the angle worm but he will eat peas and other seed the farm er puts in the ground. But the moles real runway is about seven Inches under the ground. Here he spends most of his life building tunnels. He is an engineer and knows how to build a tunnel. He goes along some times In a straight line and pushes the dirt before him, commencing at the air hole he has made, to the top of the ground. He then pushes the dirt out on top of the ground which forms the mound. These mounds are in the shape of a pyramid, and are all over. The mounds are great nuisances whn you want to mows the grass, often breaking your machine. The mole also does much damage by honey combing the ground with his runways s.i that it drie3 out. anil the grass don't do so well. These runways are used by the mice and other rodents who get the worms and crass roots, and theso nice and r.its arc a kind of communist or oclalist who make their living oil the industry of others. The speaker had some traps and showed how these moles can be caught He explained how to set the trap and how to take the skin off the lanlmal, and prepare the pelt for market. Said boys and girls cculd make good money trapping for these animals, but you must catch them when the fur is good, in February aid March. The hardest part will be to keep the boys and girls on the job. Mr. Oooter and Mi. Schipper held meetings at the Lower and Upper Farms and discussed the same subject wiith these schools. Frank S. Regan gave his celebrated Illustrated chalk lecture, "The Fool Taxpayer'' at the Government school building Tuesday evening to a very interested and attentive audience. Mr. Regan is certainly a good speaker end a fine cartoonist He showed with figures how our big corporations, con cerns and capitalists fail to pay thetr Just proportion of the taxes, showing how big concerns were exempt from taxes and" how the assessors and boards of equalizations failed to get valuations of these rich folks, making the burden of taxes fall on the small taxpayer and the plain people who are the least prepared to bear the burden. Mr. Regan said if the tax dodger was compelled to pay his part of the taxes according to his wealth we would not have to bond the county and state to build roads. If we could get the taxes out of these big concerns we could build roads without bonding. The bonding business is playing into the hands of the idle rich, who have the money to buy the bond3, and these bonds are exempt from taxation. This tax business should be Investigated by the people. The speaker said a bond Is a mortgage on every farm end parcal of land In the county or state. Mr. Regan is a man of wide experience in these matters and he advised against bonding for any purpose. Mr. Regan came from Toledo to the logging camp on the spseder and said he had a splendid ride but he could not bring his trunk that contained his nice suit of clothes and he had (to deliver his lecture In his old suit, which was a little embarasslng to him. But he made the best of It and he looked quite well. Mr. Regan was delighted with our big timber, green forest and the ceaseless sounding of the ocean as i'ts waves beat upon the shore. The course of lectures during the winter are coming out alright. We may have some money left after the course Is finished. We have more lectures yet. This course of lectures have been very interesting and bene ficial to the people. It was the desire of the management to furnish a high class entertainment for the benefit of the young people s well as the old, and it has been very successful. south'beach " Grandpa Felton, formerly of Nash ville, has come to South Beach to live and has leased D. S. Conrad's place for one year, and will buy here If the climate suite all around. He expects to try bee culture. Merclne Felton and Billy Ewlng are going into the mountains trapping for a few days, the latter having followed that business considerable. Perhaps they may bring in a few furs. Mrs. Warren Aahworth is having a well drove on her lot here and Is hoping she may get a fino flow of the necessary fluid at the end of the job. Miss Lucy M. Lynn passed away last Saturday morning at two o'clock, having been sick since last April with a slow malady which resulted in doaith after everything was done that seemed possible, ito do, yet without any help. She suffered a great deal the first part of her sickness, but the last was al most painless, with Just a gradual weakening, but the uear girt was jut- lent and cheerful thru It all, always greeting hr many friends who called with a smile and kind word. At the last when too weak to talk the bright smile was all she could give. She knew every one until the last minute, telling her father good night in her old 'baby way just a few minutes be fore going, and asking her mother to hold her hand while her friends stood around her bed. It can be truly said that to know her was to love her and I am sure the whole community mourns the loss of her and gives their d sepest sympathy to her parents. She leaves one brother besides her parents to mourn her death. Ye Scribe visited the county seat last week and having some spare time wondered about viewing the city and found that Toledo, like a good many places of note, needed lots of fixing, and everything considered. It looked as though reconstruction should not be delayed but, nevertheless, everybody seems happy and contented and that is what counts most of any thing. NASHVILLE Mir.

C, January 26, 1920 Lincoln County Leader, Toledo, Oregon. Gentlemen: I am Inclosing a copy of H. R. 11892 the River and Harbor Bill as it passed the House. The appropriation of 1100 000.00 is continued. Section 4 provides that you shall be given credit for the money already expended, and Section 3 takes care of the 40 per cent limita tion. I urged a larger appropriation but the Engineers reported that $100 000.00 with the removal of Section would give them opportunity to expend all they can profitably expend during the coming year. The bill carries an aproprlation of seven millions for the prosecution of works already under construction so that the result will be that there will be expended on the Yaqulna Bay and Harho-, $100,000.00 plus whatever th engineers may find It necessary to allot from the seven millions. Or, in other words, we are to have a share of the seven millions In addition to the $100,000.00. The Committee reduced the appro prlations from the estimates of th engineers of over forty millions of dol lars, to a little over twelve millions of dollars. Five million dollars Is ap propriated for maintaining improve rrents already made, and from th! will be allotted a sum sufficient to maintain the channel In the Yaqulna River. In view of all the circumstan ces and the tremendous pressure in favor of economy, I think that Orego faied very well, ias we will receive about 8 per cent of the entire appro priation. The bill Is now pending before the Senate, which body, I trust, will pass It promptly so that we may have the opportunity of a full season s work. With best; wishes, I remain, Truly yours, W. C. Hawlcy IMPORTANT The American Legion has been hon ored by the French Government being selected as the agent through which honoray certificates are to bo presented the next of kin of men who made the supreme sacrifice in the World War.

Dear Sir: We are in receipt of your letter ot January 23, also the samples of water which you submitted to us for bacteri ological analysis. Due to the extreme importance of this sample, besides the fact that we found a previous sample contaminated, we gave this extra care. but failed to -find any trace whatever of sewage contamination. In fact, the water proves to be most excellent. 1 cannot account for this apparent contradiction In results of the two samples. Certainly the first sample brought in by a private party, and supposed to be from tho tame supply was contaminated by sewage bacteria, sufficiently so to make it absolutely unfit for human consumption, without any possibility of a doubt On the other hand, the sample which you sub- mlt Is just as good, as the other was bad If the sample you submitted Is a fair test of the city water, then you are to be congratulated, for there is nothing wrong with It whatever. Should you care to submit further samples at a later date, we should be glad to run them for you. Sincerely yours, G. V. Copson, Acting Bacteriologist WILL YOU BE THERE? It Is the purpose of the Salvation Army to extend Its service Into each county of the state as far as it may be possible. In order to do this, an ad visory Board of prominent and influen tial citizens In each county Is being organized, who will make a study of each county to find what unhealthy moml and social cordltions may exist then see how the Salvation Army may relieve such conditions. All interested citizens of Lincoln county are asked to meet in nny office Wednesday evening, February 11th, at 7:30 o'clock, to take such action for cooperation in this important work, as may be found practicable.

S.i Parks, Federal Repre sentative of the Salvation Army from Portland, will be here and will pre sent a complete outlined plan of the work as It has been worked out by the leaders of tho movement. Mr. Parks was in Toldo several days ago and conferred with our citizens re garding tha work.
