A GOOD TESTIMONIAL. From the Commercial Club Booklet Kenncwick, Wash., Jan. 18. 1908 I came to the Kennewiek Valley two years ago with just $:J2o 00 in mv pocket in search of a place for a home. 1 bought a ten-acre tract for $110 an acre, on terniH. Today I have it all paid for. have a nice little house and a good sized barn and can live comparatively independent. 1 have live acres In alfalfa, and 200 peach trees and 200 grapa vines which will be in bearing this year. I raised the finest potatoes onions, melons, turnips and almost any thing I want to plant that can be raised in the ground. I also have a good span of horses, wagon and har ness all paid for. How did Ido it? All the time I could sp;ire from my place I have found plenty of work among my neighbors at good wages a nl 1 sold some of the things I rais ed at a good price.

The Portland contractors, Wake field tfc Jacobsen, who have been dredging and otherwise clearing the narrow channel of the Columbia at what is known as Three-Mile rapids near The Dalles, Oregon, have j completed their work and taken the dredge to The Dalles where it is now moored. The removal of the rocks and reefs from this portion of the Columbia has cost the gov ernment about $iOO,OOO, and has occupied several years, tho it could have been finished sooner but for the fact that it could not be carried <>n the year around, on account of high water. The Columbia is now free from impediments to the big eddy, where it connects with the Portage Road. Call of School and County War rants • Benton County. S 1> No. 2 All warrants registered.

After a great amount of prelim inary work, revised plans of the government canal between The Dalles and Celilo, have been com pleted and forwarded to Washing ton for approval. Government en gineers in charge of this important work have assurances that the re vised plans will be immediately taken up by the government au thorities and if approved, a sub stantial appropriation for continu ing the work will be made. The Celilo canal is the only really im portant work to be done in order to open up a channel from Lewis ton to the sea, and it is hoped that the revised plans will be approved and the necessary appropriations made. Within the past year num erous obstructions to navigation in both the Columbia and the Snake rivers have been removed by government dredges and unabated energy. The rapid dev% fc j? of a vast area of country ttyXtary to the Columbia and Snake rivers with the increased traffic incidental to such development, makes it im perative that an open channel to the sea be constructed as quickft af possible.
