Laidlaw Oregon's pioneer irriga tion project, begun in 1893 just as the panic swept over the country, stands in a fair way to be completed, and the settlers who have been waiting and watching for the water that never came, may have their hopes realized. For the state of Oregon, represented by the land board, is making an effort to secure the completion of the project with the moU flattering prospects of success. Laidlaw came into being during the days when settlers expected water and as a matter of fact when water was delivered in the ditches. But the sup ply was not sufficient for the lands at tempted to be reclaimed, the acreage reduced and other supplies of water sought. Financial troubles followed, and the company was reorganized. In the meantime it was fully demonstrat ed that a gravity system of irrigation was not feasible and that reservoirs would have to be built to store...

HAPPENINGS FROM BUYS BIG SILETZ TRACT. Nearly 2,000 Acres in Reservation Taken By Investment Co. Portland Interest in the dairy coun try south of Tillamook has been in creased by the announcement that near ly 2,000 acres of rolling land in the northern part of the Siletz reservation has been gotten by a Portland company for subdivision into small tracts. The Oceanside Investment company has acquired this property, 25 miles south of Tillamook. The land was allotted to the Siletz Indians 20 years ago, which accounts for its lack of cultivation and improve ment. The time having expired, the Indians are at liberty to dispose of their holdings, a large part of which has been secured by the Oceanside In vestment company. It is said to be in excellent condition for dairying pur poses. Cranberries seem to be indigenous to that portion of the coast, owing to the accumulation for centuries of peat. Certain requirements for the highest cultivation of cranberies will have to be met and for this...

"Buy dogs?" roared his sons In a chorus of several languages. "But what for?" Never having settled that question entirely to my own satisfaction, 1 par ried it with another, "How do you get a dog If you want one?' "W-w-w-why," answered the eldest son, wiping the tears from bis eyes. "If any one wants a dog be tells some one else, and they give him one. But whoever wants a dog?" Generally Speaking.
