Fruit Diet Makes Clear Complexions
Fruit* have a value winch we nil
admit and, like succ'.ilent vegetables,
give tiie proper elements for nnr
blood. A clear skin and bright eyes
are tiie reward of the fruit-and-veg**-
tahle devotee, but do not make the
mistake of eating fruits ti»o sweet,
sa3 T s the New Idea Woman's Maga
zine for May.
An enormous amount of time can
be saved in summer by substituting
fruits for hot desserts, tlius saving
the weary housewife cooking over a
hot stove, without undue sacrifice
on the part of tiie family, for noth
ing is more refreshing than fresh
fruit prettily served.
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. Yours sincere! v,

Columbia Clear to Big Eddy.
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

Hurry Work on the Celilo Canal.
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
