Numers ways and plans for building tbe canal bus beeu suggested. Some desire to have the entire sum of money invested iv the enterprise, owned by eastern capitalist, others wish tho peo pie of the valley to hold a one-third in terest in project and boar their portion of the expense. The Dawn has a plan to suggest and it is this: Allowing that it will cost (600,000 to construct a ditch that will practically cover all the arid land iv tho valley, we would induce local cupital to the extent of $200,000 which will perhaps furnish all the necessary money to buy that will be absolutely necessary to pay out. This would leave $400,000 to i K > sub scribed in v>ork and material, for all of which stock could be issued, and in this way hundreds of farmers could work out r. perpetual water right when it would be impossible for them to raise the necessary cash to put in the ditch. Many of our farmers say they will give one-half of their land for water for ihe other half, This land could be put on the market, sold to poor deserving men and the price paid in labor on the ditch. This plan seems to us to be a very leasable one. What wo wish is that the ditch be built, owned and operated by the peo ple of Kittitas county. This can be done aud why uot do it? The high line ditch is a leasable proposition and the building of it means millions to Ellensburg' and tbe county. There Us plenty of capital in Kittitas county to build a high line ditch if only the proper course is adopted Let la bor and capital bo combined and the scheme will move off like clock work. We fear the completion of th* mid dle ditch with all it complication, would very materially cripple tlie val ley, covering as it would, only 2.'!,000 acres, 14,000 of which has more or less water now, while a high line ditch would cover 05.000 acres, including every acre that the middle ditch would cover. Thousands Sent Into Exile Every year a large number of poor ■ ufTerers whose lungs are sore and racked with coughs are urged to go to another climate. But this ia costly and not always sure.

Getting is al! right, if you are too tat: and all wrong, if too thin already. Fat, enough for your habit, is healthy; a little more, or less, is no great harm. Too fat, consult a doctor; too thin, persistently thin, no master what cause, take Scott's Emulsion of Cod Liver Oil. There are many causes of get ting too thin; they all come under these two .heads: over work and under-digestion. Stop over-work, if you can; but, whether you can or not, take Scott's Emulsion of Cod Liver Oil, to balance yourself with your work. You can't live >n it—true—but, by it, you :an. There's a limit, however} you'll pay for it Scott's Emulsion of Cod Liver Oil is the readiest cure for 'can't eat," unless it comes ot . our doing no work--you can't ong be well and strong, without ome sort of activity.

Oray, Jan 4-18 Four miles west of Ellensburg. UNDER CAREY ACT Eight Applications Made for Arid Lands in Oregon. Eight different companies have per fected applications for arid land under the Carey arid land act. These appli cations cover nearly 200,000 acres, all in Eastern Oregon. Many more applica tions aro in course of preparation and have been forwarded to the State Lan Office, but owing to some defect have not been placed on file. By the provisions of the ( 'arey act the Federal Government offers to donate to the state 1,000,000 acres of land when the same shall have been reclaimer 1 . The state, in turn, gives the land to settlers upon the same terms. In fact, tho state acts chiefly as a medium through which the man who reclaims lands gets his title from the Govern , ment. Applications for arid laud are made to the State Land Hoard. After surveys have been made and a map tiled, the state enters into a contract with the applicant whereby the state agrees to convey tbe title upon his reclaiming tbe laud as required by tho Federal Government. Tho applicant must pay all expenses of drawing papers, making surveys, reclaiming the land and mak ing final proofs to the General Land Office. When the contract is made with j the applicant the state applies to the United States for tbe laud described in the application filed by the man who in tends reclaiming the land. The Gov ernment transfers the land to the state when proof is made that the land has been reclaimed, and the state tben makes the conveyance to the settler. By the provisions of the state law i.o settler can acquire more than 100 acres. Those persons, associations or corpora tions who reeluim more than ltiu acres do not secure title in fee simple to the land. They are given possession of the land until it is conveyed to settlers, have a lien on the land fur the cost of reclamation, aud have the privilege of charging water rates to settlers, the rates to be lixed by the State Land Board. The settler who wishes to pur chase land which has been reclaimed must pay to the reclaimers the cost of reclamation. Tho state gets nothing from the land, and bears none of tbe expenses.
