(Contln'wj from front page. I confounded with the so-oalied se.m arid regions. There is no desjrt land here, no sandy, sa?e brush plains. Everywhere grows the na tive grasses, covering the hills and valleys with a dee. carpet of green that browns only with the late sum mer and early autumn uarv?-i weather. The cause of the difference from jther counties In tail region is that the county is sur.oinded on all sides by mountain ranges, the Wallowa and Blue Mountains shielding us on the south and soithweu from the hot winds that sweep over csntrai and eastern Oregon and southern Idaho. Thee same mountains, with the highest peaks in the state, break the heavy .rainclouds causing mor? precipitation in this county than anywhere else around by several inches. The Blue mountains a!s guard against the cold we.it and northwest winds. The high hiils of Asotin keep the northern pas 5 as while the famous and altltudious Seven Devils range ove." the Snake river complete the circle of tono graphical Isolation, The deep canyons, the magnificent forests, the rolling hills and broad valleys are other topographical fea tures .that completa the change, giving a sub-tropical c imaie in the canyons and a pleasant, four-season temperate climate on the upland and in the main valley.

American telephone subscribers are familiar vn'.h the use of the cen tral switchboard operator for the dis seminator of news. Any good na tured operator will give one the time, of day upon request, and in the smaller towns one can often find ou' where the fire is and whether tr not they have caught the man who broke into Squire Millers barn. But It has remained for Budapest, way off in telephoncically barbarous Europe, to nake the completest use of the tele .mane as a news bureau. The scheme is a news service', which is turned on at stated times throughout the day. In the morning the day"s program is announced, so that the subscriber may take up his receiver and listsn whenever the things that he is interested in are on tap. There are hours for stock quo tations and business news, parlia roentary news and weather forecasts. In the late afternoon cafe music is turned on, and in the evening opera. Thus does the Budapest Telephone company make eavesdropping end gossiping on the wire a source of profit to them, as they charge their patrons J7.31 per year (2 cents a Jay) for this service. It is as if the whole city were on oae party wire with everybody llrtening to what is going on. It Is not likely that America will soon adopt the Budapest plan. With our newspapers coming out every hour, our "tickers- with business and sporting news, and our omniscient, all-wise American "hello" girls, the need is fairly well me'.
