The poisoned grain, usually wheat, jvas distributed at the holes through Jut the dog towns, both by forest ffi.eis and by forest users. More Ime was consumed in perfecting ihe plan of c30.:eration than had been ant'.clpa ed and much of the bait was put out too late to obtain -he best results, though several arge dog towns were entirely clean ad up. Experience he3 proven that the grain should be put out veo early in the spring In fact, Just a soon as the a ilmals appear from their winter quarters, for the best re suits may be obtained before green grass becomes available.

Beautiful hymns were sung by a union choir. The pall bearers were W. F. Savags. Herbert Browning, Irving French, Arthur Pace, C.

It has been we 1 said that "Death ;oves a shining mark." How true is -his in the death of Gerald Eaton Holmes, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. R. holmes, of this city. Gerald's entire Ife of 14 brief ye rs, 4 months and 23 days, has been spent in this city rod his death is a shadow felt by the entire community. His bereav ;d father, mother, sister and brother ire comforted in their sorrow by the ender memories of his beautiful ife. Among the most conspicuous raits of hi j character was his genial, ;enerous, loving nature which made iim a universal favorite among the oung people and he also had the .re quality of companionship that jndeared him to older people io that it is we 1 said of him None knew him but to love him, lor named him but to praise." During his lale illness hi fortitude mder great suffering was most vonderful. He also showed at all lmes the most tender solicitude for he other members of the family who vaited on him s lovingly and faith ully. His struggle for life waa a rave one but was marked by a esignatloa to the wi 1 of God that evealed his. Le.utir'ul soul. The air young life sj full of promise las been transplinted that it may loom in brighter fields than those f earth and tiojgh the "vacant hair' in the home speaks ever sad y to hearts that are left most deso ate, yet the consolation that Gerald still lives will sanctify this grief to he home and to the many friends vho mourn his death. There is no Dean? What seems so is transition. This Jife of mortal breath s but a suburb of the Hfe elyslan Whose partal we call death. 'He is not dead the child of our afettioa But gone un'o that school, Where he no longer needs our poor protection And Christ hixself doth rule.

Impressed with the future of the Pacific Northwest in agriculture, delegates to the national convention of the Associa tion of American Agricultural Col leges and Experiment Stations have returned home after holding a week s convention In Portland. Those In at tendance exprewel themselves surprised at the manifest agricultural wealth here. The fertility of the soil and the pro; res made In agri culture aroused much comment. The visitors were enabled to see various Parts of the state by special train as guests of the Portland Commercial club. So highly pleased were they that the excursi Mil sts passed a reso lution of thanlfs to their entertainers and spoke in very high terms of the country inspected. Since the visit ors are hard healed scientists who are not given to making unwarrant ed statements, their opinions for the Northwest and its future in" agricul ture may be taken sjrlously. These were nothing short of glowing. The fertile soil; the favorable climate organization and Intelligence of the farmers here and their successful methods, and rich opportunity for those who undertake agriculture iu this favored section of the country, all were spoken or by the visitors. Their favoiable o;lnijn is certain to be productive of much good, for these men are in touch with large numbers of farmers who are looking for new location , as weU a3 thous ands of students who are studying scleHltlc agriculture anil who are on the lookout for g oi farm lands. The Senate Irrlgatbn committee is In Portland this week Inquiring into the conditions of irrigation in the Northwest. ArrUing Tuesday morn ing, the visitors are expected to re main here a da-, and ss'ssions at which inquiries will be made will probably be he'd in the auditorium of the Commercial club. While here the senators wl l be entertained at a luncheon by the Commercial dub and take i abojt the ilty and surrounding country. President Taft, who co:ne3 to Port land October 2, has been induced to cut out a golf gime that had been planned for him here and make a public address s that his admirers here may ha.e an opportunity to hear him s?eak. It was litst arrang ed to have the bis President kept somewhat in se.'lasion, appearing only at a banquet that could be at tended by a limited number. It now appears thit in adilllon to making a public address at the Armory on the afternoon of Oc ober 2, he will lay the corne stone of the First Universalist church on the following day. The coming visit of the President has been the cause of a new record being set for Oregon fruit. Some admirer ha3 purchased two prize boxes of Winter Banana apples from a Hood River orchard, paying $2." per box for them and will prese it them to the nation's executive. As the apples will ran about 32 to the box, the buyer will spend about 75 cents for each a ple, a price never before, so far as known, paid for Oregon apples. Of coarse the careful selection and packing of the fruit for shipment to the White House accounts for a large part of the almost fabu lous price. Photograph Volcano For Moving Pictures Smtle, Sept. G In making the moving picture film showing the vol cano of Kl auea In action, the artist, Bonine, encojntered many difficul ies.
