Instead of farmers nnd merchants thinking that they are connected with rival lines, why don't they put on glasses and see that when the farmer prospers the merchant prosper^ also. When the farmers are having a hard time of It, the merchant is Just as blue a* he Is. The facts are that what helps the merchant helps every man having business connections with the town In which he Is located.

A recent dispatch from Santa Rosa California, to a San Francisco news paper contains some very interesting data concerning the new parasite that has been discovered which is expected to exterminate the codling moth. It is now ascertained that the parasite is very productive and-develops under normal conditions In 30 days or less. The dispatch follows: "Horticultural Commissioner O. E. Bremmer has made a discovery of im portance to the fruit interests of Cal ifornia. He has ascertained the short est time, of which there is any record, in which the parasites which are ex pected to exterminate the codling moth, are bred. "On March 21 Mr. Bremner liberated a colony of parasites in an orchard at Pleasant Hill, and April 19, while look ing over the fruit prospects, discovered two empty cocoons, indicating that two families of the parasites had been bred in 30 days or less and flown away. This is the only record known of the breed ing of the parasites in the open air. "From six females Mr. Bremner has hatched more than 300 individuals. Un der artificial conditions their life his tory has been passed in 36 days, but those bred In the open air passed the life history In 30 days or less, the exact tome being unknown. This would give from 50 to 100 Individuals from each female, and sustains the contention that by their enormous increase the codling moth will be exterminated by the parasite In a short time."

No one doubts that many irrigating pl.Tnts can be constructed In the fif teen or other states and territories mentioned in the Irrigation act at a less cost than can the Palouse scheme, and If the government pursues the Ir rigating business on a bargain counter plan this generation will never eat strawberries grown on government Ir rigated land in the Washtucna coulee or Franklin county.—Washtucna, Wn„ Enterprise.

Portland, May 12.—July 6 has been | selected as Sacajawea and Order of j Red Men day at the Lew is and Clark j exposition. < in this date the bronze statue of Sacajawea will be unveiled with formal ceremon'es. The Sacaja wea statue association will share the honors of the day with the order of [ Red Men In giving due recognition <o j the neglected heroine. The exercises j will he attended by many noted womeni who will come to nttend the National Woman's Suffrage convention and the' National association of charities and corrections, which will be held at that ! time. In order to participate in the J ceremonies. the order of Red Men i changed their day at the fair from July ! 26th. A feature of the exercises will be the presence of several thousand school children each wearing a button upon which is the likeness of Sacajawea. For the purpose of honoring a neg lected heroine the Sacajawea Statue association, composed of prominent Oregon women, was formed some time ago with Mrs. Eva Emery Dye as president. The association has raised 1 the money for the erection of the ' statue and chosen the design. The sta- ! tue was executed by Miss Alice Cooper. : of Denver, Colorado, and presents a young Indian woman with a papoose strapped to her back. The girl pointing toward the distant sea, her face ra diant and head thrown back and eyes full of daring, A short hunting skirt made of deer skins and leggins, show a figure full of the buoyancy and animation rtf youth. The statue is composed of Oregon copper and cost $7,000. The entire sum necessary for the in stallation of this memorial has not been raised, but contributions are being solicited from women all over the coun try. nnd it Is expected that the total amount will be subscribed to pay off all indebtedness by the time the statue is unveiled. Western women have been enthusiastic in lending their support to this commendable movement. The statue, which is the first ever erected in honor of an Indian woman, will occupy a conspicuous position in the center of Columbia court, the cen tral plaza of the exposition, facing Lakevlew Terrace, where are the stat ues of Lewis and Clark. Sacajawea was an Indian girl, a member of the Shoshone tribe, who joined the Lewist and Clark expedition which crossed the mountains to. the Pacific a century ago, while the party was in midwinter quarters among the Mandan Indians, in what is now North Dakota. Sacajawea was at that time the mother of a young babe. She was the only woman on the expedition, and shnred with the men the hardships of the toilsome journey across the conti nent. She was the friend of Captains Clark and .Lewis and generally rode with them In advance of the party, where her presence served to allay the suspicions of the tribes through whose country they passed. On two occasions she saved the lives of the party, point Ing the roat when everyone else, was lost qnd starvation was staring the lit tle band in the face. Sacajawea accompanied the party through its entire journeyings. Her husband. Charmohneau, was taken as guide and interpreter to the expedi tion. When the expedition, on the re turn trip, reached the country, of the Mnndans, Charmbonneau decided to stay there, and his ever-faithful wife remained with him. It is presumed that she died shortly afterwards. It may be safely said that if It had not been for this Indian girl. Lewis and Clark would probably never have reached the Pacific. The women of the country deserve great credit for mak ing it possible for this heroine to share the honors of the explorers at the ex position commemorating the expedition of a century ago. Progress of Zionist Movement. . London, May 12.—The commission sent out by the Zionists to explore the strip of territory in East Africa, offered by the British government, has re turned to England, and the Jews of America will be interested in learning the progress of the great movement in which they are as keenly interested as their brethren In Great Britain and other parts of Europe. Although the full report of the commissione will not he made known until it is placed be fore the delegates at the forthcoming Zionist congress, it is learned on ex cellent authority that it will be favor able to the acceptance of the land by the Zionists. The report, however, "ays that another expedition will have to be sent to subdue the natives in the surrounding districts.
