THE EVENING STATESMAN WALLA WALLA, WASHINGTON. Mini. Oreion, lit AGITATE MIIM TELErHONE LINES Pendleton Farmers Have a Scheme for Bringing Inland Empire Into PENDLETON, 27—The farm ers who organized a mutual telephone company one week ago are still agi tating the matter of mutual lines. Since this organization was perfected letters have been received from the secretaries of four or five different pri vate lines, which were not represented at the original meeting, asking for information as to the intents and pur poses of the mutual companv. The trend of these letters has been favor able in general for a mutual which will take in not only this, but other counties of this state aTid Washington. Farmer lines are now rumiing, the farmers claim, from the Walla Walla valley to Athena and from Pendleton to near Adams, leaving only a few miles, five or six. to connect PendletoAi with the Walla Walla couAitry. A few miles extension, it is also claimed would take in Helix, while private lines are now running to Echo, the Butter Creek country, Ukiah, Alba, Pilot Rock and on to Heppner. The promoters, feel certain that all of these would come into the new mutual. This would practically give each subscriber free service from Walla Walla to Heppner, and at least from Helix to Ukiah inclusive.

That although the stomach is a valu able organ, it is perfectly possible to get along without it, was set forth re cently by Professor H. J. Paterson, F. R. C. S.. in a lecture delivered at the Royal College of Surgeons of Eng land, at London. During the c-urse of his remarks the lecturer discussed the removal of the whole stomach as a radical cure for malignant disease. The lecture observed, says the London Standard, that while the value of a good stomach is undoubted, fortunately nature is able to dispense with this or gan, as most of its functions can be performed vicariously by other portions of the alimentary canal. Nature has duplicated three of the four functions performed by the stom ach, although the loss of the gastric secretion cannot altogether be compen sated. "Those who have lost it," says one authority," "have one weapon the less in the struggle for existence." It has been shown that dogs may gain in weight and remain in perfect health after removal of the entire stomach, while the elaborate observations made on a patient proves that the same holds good of human beings. These observa tions record that the absorption of al bumen was unaffected, and no putre factive changes occurred in the intes tines, which shows that the absence of the gastric juice does not lead to de composition in the intestines. Until some other cure for cancer is discov ered, wide removal is the ideal opera tion. BLOW TO REAL ESTATE MEN King County Judge Holds Their Contracts Are No 6ood DECISION WIS SURPHISE TO DEILEHS CANNOT HOLD PURCHASER UN- TIL HE HAS BEEN ACCEPTED AS THE OWNER. In a decision handed down in the superior court at Seattle, Judge Rice deals a blow to the Seattle Real Estate association by declaring that the con- tract which they use In tying up prop erty in their hands to dispose of Is nothing more than a license to sell and is not binding in the least, particu larly so far as the prospective pur chaser is concerned. The case which resulted in this de cision was brought by George Vraden burg to enforce the completion of a transaction which he had entered into with an agent of George Beggs to pur chase certain property owned by the latter. Beggs was made the defend- Testimony was introduced to show that Beggs had signed a contract with a local real estate firm to sell certain property, and Vrandaberg entered into negotiations with the agent to buy this property, paying down a sum of money to bind the bargain. Before the ab stract .which was submitted to Vra denburg for examination, was accepted Beggs sold the property to a third par ty without notifying his agent or Vra- denburg. In finding for the defendant, Judge Rice held that the intending purchaser had no rights under the contract until he had been accepted as such by the owner, and that the clause in the con tract which provides for ten days' no tice before revocation is not binding because there is no consideration in volved except a promise of future serv ices, which is of no value. Judge Rice said that he would like to see the question passed upon by the supreme court. The contract, which is given below, is known as the "Uniform Contract," and has been adopted by the Realt Estate association. Heretofore it has been enforced strictly and was looked upon as a great protection both to agents and intending purchasers: "Uniform Contract adopted by the Seattle Real Estate association. 190...
