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

tunnel through the rocky bluff on
the north side and build a trestle 1

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

fifty years and will build the spill

four times the highest flood known.

"I have more faith in the published

"I know the forestry department

"If timber cutting is continued as in

"Mr. Weyerhaeuser has always
placed considerable Importance on the

the Increase in new timber would he

he has been correctly quoted I am
certain the rank and file of lumber

"I cannot understand why Mr.
Weyerhaeuser should make such
statements. He Is one qf the best

the subject of forest supply, but It Is
common knowledge that the timber

Colfax Charles A. Frazler, super
intendent for the Pacific Coast Eleva

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

ered conservative, and If present
prospects are fulfilled, It wWld not
surprise me If the total yield was con

the Advertising Decides!
If there is ANY day on which
your store s ad. SHOULD be print

which it should NOT?
Are there some davs on which it

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.
