Thu Fur nish canals and the 10,000 acres of hlKh grade fruit lands, supplemented in a manner by the Coe reservoir make up the celebrated Furnlxh-Coc Irrigation project. The land fur the reservoir site, cost ing about $25,000, was taken over, as Is customary with Mr. Furnish and Dr. Coe, by a cash payment, In full, and the work on the dam Is being paid for as It progresses. Mr. Marble, chief engineer of the project and dam, Is very hnsy these fifty feet high. When the water rises forty feet It will begin to run out through the spillways, which will be Olid rock and concrete. The flow will then continue here, as shown, as long as the river is high. When the Furnish Ditch Co. nee.is more water than the passing river has be longing to It, It will allow as mueti water as it may desire, to run through Its escape ci.nal at the base of the dam, together with the amount ot water flowing Into the reservoir at Its upper ebb and will then divert Into Its own headgates the amount or water passing at such poinl, less the drying up of the Umatilla river In any year. The 0. R. & K, people have inad their plans to slrengthen the great curve below the dam In their track It a coat of over $700,000. They will tunnel through the rocky bluff on the north side and build a trestle 1 lew the dam and over the spillway Tiie dam will take out the upper en Ot the curve In the river, so that li a few months the long ami cuuihci somily named region, for so many years known as the "Horse Sho Curve" will through dam construction and railroad work become a thing of FURNIHH-OOE RESERVOIR AND DA M. eefciL cj. eee As Ttoey Will Appear When Present Work Is omphnL days. While Mr. Marshall Is busy with the canals, Mr. Marble Is devot ing his entire attention to the dam construction. His fifteen years ex perience In Yakima and other irriga tlon region of the Northwest, where he has had so prominent und enn splclous a part In bringing to frui tion the going enterprises In dams and canals now there in use, will fit him for the present work Funds are avail able for the completion of this dam in the shortest time possible. It will require about a your to complete the same. The river will be crossed by a clam amount coming Into the reservoir above which does not belong to the Furnish Ditch Co. A concrete weir will be put In above the reservoir, an oth'er below the escape canal and a third below the Intake of the Furnish Ditch, and careful estimates of the passing water will be made. All this will be under the supervision of the state irrigation engineer. As It ha long been contended that there Is ample water In the river to water the Furnish-Coe rands the Coe reservoir may be considered merely a special adjunct and guarantee of surplus watei In case there should be early the past The railroad will build a stono pier bridge across the upper end of the reservoir, changing the present site of the upper bridge to a point a few feet lower down the present river, and the dam. spillway, weirs and lake formed in the reservoir will becomo one of the most Interesting and pic turesque Incidents of travel on the main line of the O. R. & X. Mr Marble has made a study of floods In the Umatilla for the past fifty years and will build the spill way large enough to accommodate four times the highest flood known. DISAGREE WITH L UMBER KING LUMBERMEN DENT THAT THE FORESTS ARE EVERLASTING Bej Timt Wcyeadiaouser u wrong in Ills Iteeeot Statement- Spokane Men .Vscri That (lu- Supply Will Not iji-t a Generation Middle Him Is Strlpjtcxl. Spokane. .Lumbermen of Spokane were surprised ut the statements of Frederick Weyerhaeuser, president of ktjdi "I never made a mistake In buying timber, except what I did not buy.' " "I have more faith in the published reports of the forestry service than t have In the opinion of Mr. Weyerhaeu ser, despite the fact that he Is one of the oldest and best Informed lum bermen In the country." said A. J. Wilson, secretary of the Fidelity Dum ber company. "I know the forestry department llaei the most careful methods nnd its conclusions can be taken for truth. (nly a few days ago n representative of the Weyeraeuser interests in the south was here ami he remarked 'hat the highest production of lumber in the south would lie reached within a yar, after which the mills would be. gin to close We must take precau tions to save the timber or It will be exhausted within a generation." .1. t'. Karline, treasurer of the Wash- the Weyerhaeuser Timber company ington Mill company, said: "While 1 of Seattle, thai the timber supply of j have fhe greatest respect for Mr. the United States Is lnexh;iuUSb. . as , Weyerhaeuser"s Judgment regarding given in a newspaper report from the lumber situation In this country yestsrda morning. They, absolutely disagree with him on the blea that our supply of timber In the United States Is Inexhaustible.. Timber Won't Last u Generation. "If timber cutting is continued as in the past It will not last a generation. Of course, with our present Ideas nf forest conservation and protection the supply may last a long time. "Mr. Weyerhaeuser has always placed considerable Importance on the growth of timber. He has said that the Increase in new timber would he of sufficient value to pay taxes, but if he has been correctly quoted I am certain the rank and file of lumber men will disagree with him. "The effect of cutting timber Is shown by the sales of reservation timber In Minnesota every year which sells for from $0to $12 a thousand while here $4 would be high for such timber.' Seattle yesterday morning Ciere free to express inemseives mat Ir. Weyerhaeuser is mistakes and overestimates the value and amouet of the natural increase of Umber on land. J. A. Tormey, former superintend ent of the city schools but now Inter ested lu the sale of timber lands, said; "I cannot understand why Mr. Weyerhaeuser should make such statements. He Is one qf the best Informed men In the United States on the subject of forest supply, but It Is common knowledge that the timber supply of the middle west Is exhaust ed. There ire only 10 sawmills there today where there were formerly about 50. Middle W est stripped, "Itulletln 77 of the United States ferestry service ays that the value of the stumpage regions of the central west Is $20 per 1000 feet, In Micni gan $15 to $1S and In Minnesota from jr to $12. Stumpage of the same kind here sells for $1. In many parts of that country where timber was worthless a few years ago the stump land has become valuable. Some of the land In Michigan has been gone over three limes. "I think Mr. Weyerhaeuser has been misquoted, but If he has been correctly quoted I think he has some ulterior motive.

Frazler, super intendent for the Pacific Coast Eleva tor company, estimates that Whitman county will this year produce 16,000, 000 bushels of grain, and that there are in crop n the county 2,800,000 acres, the greatest acreage. In the his tory of the county, of fall-sown wheat and oats particularly. "My estimate," said Mr. Frazier, "Is 12,000,000 bushels of wheat, 20 per cent of which Is spring sown; 3, 000,000 bushels of oats, the largest crop ever raised In the county, and 1,000,000 bushels of barley, princi pally feed. These figures I consid ered conservative, and If present prospects are fulfilled, It wWld not surprise me If the total yield was con siderably In excess of this. "Harvest In this vicinity will com mence In about 20 days, and In the western portion of the county In about a week. Phil Cox, of Hay, hav ing already headed fifty acres of fall sown Jones' fife that will yield near ly forty bushels per acre., '"With the exception of smut In a few localities, the quality of the grain promises to bo No. 1 and the price I think will open at about 80 cents per bushel f,,r dub and 85 to 90 f ir bluestem."

Your Store Grows, or toes Backward Every Day-And the Advertising Decides! 4" 4- If there is ANY day on which your store s ad. SHOULD be print ed, is there then, ANY DAY on which it should NOT? Are there some davs on which it I ----- - is not necessary to advertise your storer" oome days when enterprise may be suspendedeffort to build, to forge ahead, relaxed? Does it not follow, rather, that if advertising is good at all that it is oetter when done persistently, en thusiastically, with a cumulative in terest which never attaches to "now and then" advertising. Unbroken sequence in store-advertising is fundamental. The store that is worth while today is adver tised today. The people know this. They take a store somewhat at its own valuation. When this valua tion is low when the store owner practically admits that there are days when it isn't worth while to advertise the people readily accept that as the true state of affairs, and the store earns its place among the non-progressive ones. If this isn't all true why, then, of course, it's not important, either. Although it's both both true and important.
