At this time the most Important en
terprise under way in Umatilla county
is tba i heme for the construction of
a railroad from Umatilla to Pendle
ton via. Holdman. If the plans of the
farmer promoters of the road can be
'carried out all the country through
vhich the road will pass will be im
mensely benefitted and so will this
Then If in addition to this road to
the river a road is extended south
from this city to Grant county and
the entire system electrified by power
generated on the John Day, Umatilla
county's cup will be full indeed.
Umatilla county's greatest need Is
of electric roads. Roads are especi
ally needed from Grant county Into
Pendleton and from Pendleton to the
Columbia via. the Holdman country
and the Umatilla project. The coun
try south of Pilot Rock Is now wholly
without transportation facilities. So
U the Holdman country. Both these
sections are being held back by the
lack of railroad facilities. The south
end of the county remains a stock
raising section because farming is not
profitable so far from a railroad. Out
In the Holdman country' the farmers
are forced to haul their wheat long
distances in order to sell It.
Now the construction of roads
through these sections will not only
facilitate the marketing of crops but
will also double or treble the price of
land along the roads. It Is the his
tory everywhere that the building of
anch roads bring about a more diver
sified farming and a consequent
greater population and higher land
The farmers In the Holdman coun
try are wide awake men and so they
have decided to have a railroad built.
They want to build from Umatilla to
Holdman and hope to have the road
extended on Into this city and ulti
mately to Grant county. Those hack
of the movement believe that "God
helps those who help themselves." So
they have started out to see what they
can accomplish towards building a
road. A preliminary survey has been
made, right of way asked for and
farmers alon? the line have been asked
tr do grading work for stock In the
Though the task of railroad build
ing Is not an easy one yet there Is
every reason to believe that the farm
ers' scheme can be carried out with
complete success. If the farmers will
but unite In the matter they can build
the road with ease, for they have
plenty of money with which to do It
and It will pay them to build. If
they cannot do the engineering work
they can employ men who can. If
they do not want to operate the road
after It is completed plenty of com
petent men will be available for that
What the farmers need to do now
and what the people of Pendleton, of
the west end and of the south end
need to do, Is to get together and
back this proposition so as to ensure
When the recent legislature was
asked to appropriate $75,000 for the
completion ;if the Celllo portage road
into The Dalles some of the "rail
road" papers of the state opposed the
measure and sought to prevent its
passage by Offering various objections
tn the expenditure.
At that time the Kast Oregon sup
ported the measure enthusiastically
for the reason that the extension of
the portage promised to Increase the
efficiency of the Columbia river as
a freight rate regulator. This paper
Is glad the bill passed and that pre
parations are now underway for the
extension of the road into The Dalles.
"All obstacles to the completion of
the portage railroad from Big Eddy to
The Dalles have been cleared away,
the line Is being located, and con
struction work will begin soon, says
the Oregon Journal. Many people do
not understand the Importance of this
little three-mile piece of road, and Im
agine that the appropriation therefor
by the last legislature was money
wasted. On the contrary, It Is doubt
ful If the state ever made a better in.
vestment. It may be compared In
value to the Cascade locks, which
opened up the river from the Cas
cades to The Dalles, about 45 miles,
while this will perfect the portage
road, that we may roughly say half
opens up the river beyond The Dalles
for 250 miles. The portage road al
ready built, between Big Eddy and
Celllo, has been useful, but with this
three miles built, bringing it into The
Dalles, its usefulness will be greatly
Increased, Already 'there are three
steamers on the upper river, but with
this road completed more and better
and faster schedules can be main
In addition to facilitating shipping
OH the river the extended portage road
will also hasten the completion of the
Celllo canal. See If It does not.

SHUNNING ELECTRIC LIGHTS.
When it first became known that
the blond girl had refused a situation
in the dry goods store because she
would be obliged to pursue her la
bors under an electric light Instead of
the light of heaven, the irreverent ac
cused her of undue vanity.
"She was afraid the glare would be
too hard on her hair and complexion."
By and by this caustic remark
reached the blonde girl's ears and she
lost no time In refuting the charge.
"That Is not the reason at all," she
said. "I wouldn't take a place at
that counter because the chances are
that half the things I sold would be
brought back. It makes a saleswo
man disgusted with her Job when so
many things come back. Also, it
makes the manager disgusted. I know,
because I have had experience. The
last two places I worked I was cooped
up In an electric light cozy corner
trying to sell cretonne and decorative
cloths. Incidentally, I had a few
cheap soft pallows thrown in for good
measure. I made plenty of sales at
that counter, but precious few of
them were keeps. Every time I got
rid of an article I expected to wel
come It back in a day or two, and
usually I did.
" 'The colors are not what I
thought they were,' said the dissatis
fied customer. 'Those electric lights
are so deceiving. When I got the
stuff out In the daylight It looked en
tirely different from wha. it did In
"And then, of course, the manager
would blame me. Just as If I could
help It because blue looked fcreen and
saffront a canary yellow. Finally I
got wise. I made up my mind that
the next time I take a situation I will
fight for a counter near a window,
so my customers won't swoop down
on me with the everlasting complaint
of having been deceived In colors."

"Pilgrims used to visit Whlttier
continually. A typical one came
from Missouri. Though told that
Whlttier had a headache, ho forced
his way Into the poet's study, where
he declared that he adored all Whlt

by heart. He asked Whlttier to write
his name several hundred times on
a large sheet of foolscap, so that ho
could cut out and distribute the au

to keep the enthusiastic Mlssourlan
