Heaven When Wuter C'onios.
An association of land owners of
the Horse Heaven country has been
formed for the purpose of further-
Ing plans of getting water on that
plateau. The building of the gre.it
Klickltat ditch is the ultimate object
of the society, "The association is a
stock concern, and each land owner
coming in subscribes $!iu for each
quarter section of land owned by
him. The purpose of the association
is given as follows: Encouraging,
promoting and hastening the irriga
tion of lands in Horse Heaven. For
the mutual protection of ourselves
and our interests, and for securing
the best possible equitable contract
between ourselves and such party as
may wish to put In an irrigation ca
nal covering our lands/ So says
the promoter of the association, and
when the objects are accomplished
it no doubt will be in order to drop
"horse" from the nnme. for when
water is on the plateau it would per
haps be appropriate.—Bickleton News

Tin- praaefll Is «n •!*■ of groat under
taklnss. Witness the construction of
the I'anama canal, the draining of the
Florida Kverglades and the reclama
tion Of wide areas of hitherto worth
less lands through the agency of irri
gation.
All over the productive regions of
the south cotton Is king. In the rich
areas of the North-Central states corn
Is king. But throughout the vast
stretches of the seemingly worthless
west, in a very real and positive sense,
water is king. As the years go by and
the wonderful fruitfulness of the so
called arid regions comes to be more
generally known, as the teeming
millions turn westward and the advan
tages of irrigation, both here and in
the older states, are more widely rec
ognized, even more significant, more
universal and more deeply true will
be the watchword. "Water Is King!"
Reclamation in Its Infancy.
The reclamation of lands as a
national policy has scarcely begun. To
the great majority of our eastern pop
ulation irrigation is little more than a
name. The wonderful productiveness
Of these western binds under the mag
ic touch of water is almost beyond
their belief. All that Is necessary to
bring large numbers of these people
to the west is to get them in touch
with the facts as they really are.
No other means of diffusion of gen
eral intelligence concerning irrigation
and the products of irrigation and
western lands and western farming is
more effective, more reliable or more
truly representative than the annual
assembling of the National Irrigation
Congress. This is in the highest sense
a truly national, democratic, represen
tative body, since no association, club,
organization or corporation is debar
red from sending delegates to its an
nual sessions.
BlK 1 Quotations Are Discussed.
The larger questions, such as the
conservation of our national resources,
the storage of water, the best methods
of carrying and applying it, together
with such other questions as reforesta
tion, good roads, etc., are discussed at
this congress by men of wide observa
tion and national reputation. It is a
splendid thing for the worker In de
tails to get an occasional glimpse from
the national viewpoint.
No better opportunity is offered the
people of Yaklma valley for an effec
tive display of the products of irriga
tion in general than that afforded by
the coming session of the Irrigation
Congress in Spokane. No comment is
so suggestive, no influence so lasting,
no speech so potent as the unspoken
speech of the simple, impressive pres
ence of the products of irrigation
themselves.
The fruit, the hay, the grains, the
vegetables, the dairy and stock pro
ducts added to the enthusiastic crowds
are perse, an unanswerable argu
ment In behalf of the irrigated regions.
I/aflt in This State for Years.
The congress will not assemble
again in this state for years. Spokane
is making great preparation! for en
tertainment; general lblicity and a
cordial reception to all who come.
Shall the greatest irrigated section of
central Washington, with her wonder
ful productiveness and her still more
remarkable undeveloped resources, sit
idly by and allow the representative
intelligence of the nation to conue ane
fro with no adequate knowledge of the
benefits which the magic hand of irri
gation la here just beginning to confer.
Added to the other attractions, there
will be three splendid parades and the
men and the product! of Yakima val
ley should be the biggest thing in the
biggest of these parades. Representa
tives of other irrigated sections, both
east and south, will be there. Their
plans already in progress l>9SJ>eak a
full realization of the opportunities
and the benefits offered.
Need toe Hlu fliiliiwtiut
Special committees of till the com
mercial clubs from FJlensburg to the
Columbia are working together, call
ing attention of the people to the im
portance of the congress, seeking to
unify the efforts, augment the display
and increase the attendance from the
entire valley.
President Roosevelt Is quoted as
saying that the National irrigation
Congress is the most Important volun
tary, reppesentatlvi body that has ever
assembled in thW country. This being
true, every town mid community
should be present with a large and en
thusiastic delegation of its representa

that Fox threatened the life of Wilson.
The exact nature of the trouble is un

when Fox. with western hospitality
asked Wilson to take a drink and call
it "square" Wilson refused to drink,
and his lack of sociability roused the

he was given his release upon the

Thoir Span of T.lfe Short.
President Roosevelt retires from
his exhausted office while compara
tively a young man and doubtless
looks forward to a longer lease of life
than has fallen to the lot of a ma
jority of retiring presidents. John
Adams, the second president, lived
more than a quarter century after
laying down the cares of office, says
the Salt I,ake Herald, but the average
period of life of the presidents after
retirement is only 12 years and in
months. The list follows:
Geoige Washington lived two years
and nine months after retirement.
John Adams lived 25 years and
three months.
Thomas Jefferson lived 17 years
and three montfcfi*.
James Monroe lived six years and
four months.
John Quincy Adams lived 19 years
«nd served in the house of represen
tatives.
Andrew Jackson lived eight years
and three months.
Martin Van Buren lived 21 years
and four months.
William Henry Harrison died pre
cisely one month after his inaugura

John Tyler lived 17 years after his

James K. Polk lived three months.
Zachary Taylor died in office 16

Millard Fillmore lived 21 years af

Organization of Corporation* M In
clmlo OWMtI ol Small Tracts
I nilcr Project Is RKCeaM
Circumvention of a recent ruling of
tIM reclamation MTTtCe If" a task to j
Whtctl mm lawyers have recently set '
themselves, from all appearances, and
they Mie apparently achieving the I
task. The idea is a good one and the
Herald herewith suggests it to its var
ious readers.
I'nder a recent ruling of the de
pnrtment nf tho interior, land In pri
vate ownership undor a reclamation
project, that Is land held by deed or j
transfer, may procure water to the ex- |
tent of 160 acres but the owner must
live on or within 50 miles of his land. ;
This works a hardship on many own- j
ers of small tracts. Some people who !
have procured five and 10 acre tracts
and who live In other towns, where I
they are earning a living or who are \
following some vocation and who are'
unable to live within the required dis- j
tance of the land are unable to pro- i
cure water for cultivation. It is In ■
this phase of the law that the attor- |
neys have found a way of getting
around the difficulty.
Smnll Owners OrgMtMA.
Corporations, under the law, may
Have water for land up to but not ex
ceeding 160 acres, provided the aggre
gate of the individual holdings of the
members of the corporation Is not
in excess of 180 acres, under the spec
ific project, or any other. Corpora
tions of small owners are being or
ganized and their head offices are
placed within 50 miles of the land un
der the project. This enables the small
owner to procure water for his tract
and thus places him In the position
of the large owner whose residence is
within the limit set. The corporation
can give to the various owners in this
way an advantage which as individu
als, acting separately and alone, they
would be compelled to forego.
The Herald has already announced,
within the past few days, the organi
zation of several corporations, which
have combined small land owners.
Others, it is declared lire in process of
formation.
RECII'K FOX VXHAPI'INKSS.
A living-death is a life -without in
centive. The man or woman who Is
purposeless, has no responsibility, Is
producing nothing, is merely feeding
the physical senses, is missing the
meaning of existence and forfeiting
the real joy of living.
The quickest and surest way of
tiring of the world is to concentrate
thought on self. Those who have noth
ing to think of but self carry a weari
some burden.
In the news columns daily we read
of the disasters that befall purposeless
people. Every city every day has its
quota of suicides from this cause.
The burden of mere self becomes so
heavy men and women take their lives
to escape it.
To temporarily free their minds of
the stress of Irresponsibility, others
*rink themselves into the gutter.
There is a deal of wretchedness from
this cause.
"The world is full of such a number
of things, that I am sure we should
all be happy as kings," the poet sang,
and very truly. For one has only to
look about with seeing eyes to llml
things to do that are worth while do
ing.
Kvasion of responsil.'Hty is rank
cowardice, and makes for an empty
life.
A drama has just been introduced In
New York which illustrates the point
this editorial intends. It is a re
markably interesting play, and is un
usual for a variety of reasons, not the
least of which is that it involves no
suggestive sex problem nor contains
any lascivious dance.
In the play a rich old man has
been thinking exclusively about self.
He thinks that he is 111 and calls a
counsel of physicians. He secretly
overhears their wise talk, and when
they decide that he must die he pre
pares to commit suicide. He is next
seen in a tenement in the slums of the
city, whither he has gone to hide his
identity and blow out his brains. The
pistol is at his temple when a ragged
girl steps into the room and tells him
her troubles. She has some very real
troubles. They ate troubles of the
heart and mind. She has been carry
ing too much resDonsibility, but she
was stroaff Rir Her burden. She is
not complaining. The old man begins
to feel that his little physical troubles
arc Insignificant compared with the
heart and mind worries of his new
found frienJ. He lay.-i the pistol down
and presently finds himself engaged
in assisting the girl. There is a splen
did lot or detail in the play, which of
course ends with the girl happy and
the old man in excellent spirits and
health and with plenty of life busi
ness on hand.
If time weighs heavily upon you, get
busy! Adopt a baby. Go conserva
tively into debt. Interest yourself in
the struggle of some fellow worse off
than you are. Get married. Devise
some means of effecting an equitable
ta -iff. Invent a simple, low-priced
machine which will take the killing
labor of washing clothes from the
shoulders of American housewives.
Discover a new star. Find a cure for
c; -.cer. Scheme a plan by which the
graft danger may be eliminated from
municipal ownership of public utili
ties. Discover a sustance which will
prevent teeth from decaying. Write
something which will make men think
less of selfish gain and more of'
brotherly love. These are sugges
tions —and "ths world is full of such
a number of things" that one need not
think long beforel discovering an
agreeable hobby.
Do something and be happy.

VAKIMA RA.W'EK
Fljik to Hy Over County Building at ]
the Seattle Exposition. I
Eloquence and earnestness were de
veloped Monday at the session of the
Yakima county Alaska-Yukon-Pacific
exposition committee. It arose over
the matter of a pennant for the build
ing. It was suggested that a pennant
be procured bearing the word Yakima.
This brought out a protest as some
thought that that would be a boost for ;
North Yakima so they asked that the J
word county be accepted the lettering ■
on the banner to be "Yakirna county." j
This was objected to as being- too long. J
It was urged that Yakima is being 4
boomed, all of Yakima, not North j
Yakima or Yakima city or anything
but Yakima, from Wenas to Mabton
and from Priest rapids to Mount
Adams. This idM didn't take. Then
someone suggested that "Co" in small
letters be placed after the word Yak
ima on the pennant.
Talkc<l for an Hour. ]
After the subject had been discussed
pro and con for an hour and the op- *
posing forces each had each forgot-.
ten the cause of war someone sug
gested that the banner be constructed
by the ladies of the county. This ,
started it all over again as the banner
is wanted by the time the fair Is open- '
ed and it was feared that each lady
would not have an opportunity to add |
her stitch if the making of it was
made general. As a matter of fact
both features of the banner will be I
worked out by the manager of the
building.
