In prosecuting agricultural extension work n the State of Oregon for the 1915-16 period the Department of Agriculture has arranged for the expenditure of $104,555 through Ore gon Agricultural College. The moneys come to the state by reason of the provisions of the Smith-Lever act, adopted bv Congress in 1914. . The instruction provided far includes prac 'ical demonstrations in agriculture and home economics, given to persons who do not at tend colleges or reside in college towns. In cider to secure the advantage of these funds for Oregon it was necessary for the Agricul tural College to agree to a memorandum re quiring the college to organize and maintain a distinct administrative management for the extension work. In Oregon Agricultural College there is a director who is in charge of all this work, and who submits his pla'ns to the director at Wash ington for approval. For the past few years county agents have been provided in many counties, the cost being divided between the Government, state ami county, who have been working with organ ized bodies of farmers. A glance at the appropriations for Oregon is indicative of the wide extent and variety of' ..id that is being rendered, any of which is open to any county which desires to co-operate to secure the benefits that accrue. Appropriations. Administration $ 7,035 Publications 6,235 County agents 44,691 Home demonstrations .. 3,150 Movable schools 14,356 Boys' club work . , 6.990 Pig clubs 2,700 Farm management 2,760 ' Dairying 5,400 Rural organization ..... 4,141 Miscellaneous 7,007 Total $104,g55 Of the 35 counties in Oregon, only 10 at this time have availed themselves of the county agent plan. These agents have been particularly help ful in many states in solving social problems, as well as in giving aid to the fanner in wrest ling with the everyday difficulties that spell the difference between success and failure. In the organization of pig clubs, of con tests in growing grains and vegetables among the boys, and in the work of interesting the girls in canning clubs and other branches of domestic economics the county agents have gone far toward making the farm life of the country more tolerable to the young, and in duelling the rising desire to get away to the city. It is a work that is making the farm paj :n crops and in boys and girls. Commerce News. PROTECT AMERICA FIRST! The commercial dangers to which this country will be exposed when the European war ends are obvious. Americans must be prepared to defend their foreign trade and '.heir domestic markets against an assault ne cessitated by the impoverished condition of 'heir rivals, to whom this country will oft'e he immediate opportunity for rehabilitation. The attack will be directed by the most intelli gent merchants, backed by governments whose necessities will compel a co-operation unknown among us. In defense of American interests our gov ernment may, if it chooses, titili.e a number cf weapons. The tariff may be adjusted to tne actual conditions obtaining in the world, and not to theories sprung from Utopian asp:ra lions. The constructive and defensive effects of its schedules may be supplemented bv leg islation restrictive to a degree the practic: of 'dumping" and unfair competition generally These resources might easily be combined to afford protection to American industry and American commerce so effective that the na tion could escape the more disastrous conse quences of the raids that will be made upon its prosperity. The situation far trviscends partisanship. It concerns neither Repi.bii.;a: s nor l)'i:. crats in their thcoretica1 clilTerc-cv It is of immediate, vital and national concern. To its solution the brains of the country must con t-ibute, unhampered by prepossession or prejudice. America must keep her trade and preserve her markets, and to accomplish these things every energy of the mercantile and the political world must be united, determined and harmonious. New York Sun. A number of granges have condemned the present system of issuing a separate state ment in a separate envelope, of taxes due on each parcel of .property, that there is a need less duplication of clerical cost and expense for stationery and postage. The old system of issuing statements of taxes in one bill at one lime is preferred. ' The silver lining? The Boston Transcript says: "During the recent Kansas cyclone is is said that the sun was obscured for two hours by a cloud of limousines and grand pianos." WAR AND DRUGS. Druggists say that the war in Europe is responsible for the high price of drugs. It is almost unbelievable what a difference there is in commonly used drug necessities during the past few mouths. A great many drugs are . practically all manufactured in Germany and the blockade by the Allies has practically stopped all importations to this country. To pivc an idea of the increase in price, the fol lowing is submitted: Carbolic acid has in creased 1200 per cent: saltpeter, epsom salts, glycerine, coil liver oil and numerous other (.ommouly used drugs have doubled in price; quinine has increased 300 per cent; peroxide 150 per cent. Do not blame your druggist for the increase for he is not to blame in the mat ter. It is now an expensive proposition to be sick, and peroxide blondes are worth three times as much as they were when the world was at peace. The government is closing in upon the men who have directed bomb plots, incendiary tires in munition works and the fomenting of strike disorders in the interests of warring Eu ropean powers. Karl Buenz, former German general consul at New York, and other em ployes and officials of the Hamburg-American 1'ue went on trial before Judge Howe, charged with fraudulently conspiring to furnish sup plies to German commerce raiders. . Before another fortnight the government expects in dictments to be returned against at least half v. dozen alleged ringleaders in bomb and muni tion plots. A woman whose name has not been made public in connection with anv pre vious disclosures probably will be among those indicted. Several Germanic representatives, bankers and business men with foreign con nections and a horde of pettv agents of for eign powers will be found to be involved in a nation-wide conspiracy, federal agents said. - Five men were in the firing squad that put Tos. llill.strom to death in Salt Lake City. Utah. Friday morning. Four of the rilles car ried loaded ball cartridges. The fifth was loaded with a blank. The guns were loaded by one man, another mixed them and a third placed them on the rack from which the indi vidual members of the firing squad chose them. No one will ever know who fired the blank cartridge. All the firing squad were expert ritlemeit. I "our bullets pierced the tar get over Hillstrom's heart. Each member of ;he squad received $40 in gold for his services. Hillstrom was the nineteenth person to lie executed in Utah. Fifteen chose shooting and four hanging. Secretary of State Olcott has notified county clerks that voters' lists will be supplied to the clerks as heretofore, the attorney gen eral having held that the secretary should furnish election supplies as enumerated in the ?913 law. At a meeting of county clerks held recently with the secretary of state at Salem, -ill phases of the law were' considered, and blank forms for writing up the alphabetical iists in duplicate of the voters in the several voting precincts in the state, were prepared, and when printed a sufficient number will be furnished each county clerk. On account of the conflicting provisions of the several laws pertaining to voters' lists and poll books, is !he occasion for the official circular being is sued for the guidance of county clerks. Superintendent . G. Imel of Astoria, has notified the High Schools represented in the lower Columbia division of the Oregon State debating league that the forensic activities will commence immediately after the Christ mas holidays. Seven High Schools comprise this division. Thev are the Astoria, Tilla mook, Clatskanie, Scappoose, St. Helens, St. Johns, Rainier schools. Each school wili have two teams. The subject for this seas en's debates is one of special interest and one which is now occupying the thot and atten tion of the entire country. It is the adoption of the Swiss military system by the United States. ' People are often at a loss how to describe groups of animals and birds. Therefore, the following will prove interesting. You should say: A covey of partridges, a nide of pheas ants, a wisp of snipe, a flight of doves or swal lows, a muster of peacocks, a siege of herons, a brood of grouse, a plump of wild fowl, a ! tnd of plovers, a watch of nightingales, a dock of geese, a herd or bunch of cattle, a bevy cf quails, a cast of hawks, a swarm of bees, a school of whales, a shoal of herrings, a herd of swine, a skulk of foxes, a pack of wolves, a drove of oxen, a sounder of hogs, a troop of monkeys, a pride of lions, a sleuth of bears, and a gang of elk. . ... . At Fairmount, V. Va., twenty-five em ployes of the postoffice in that city, left their positions and temporarily tied up the mail service, as a protest against the dismissal of the assistant postmaster. , They have been prrested by the government, charged with conspiracy to delay the mails. The maximum penalty for the offense with which the men are charged is two years imprisonment and a fine of $10,000. It is expensive business to interfere with Uncle Samuel's mail. In the lonely districts of East Anglia, Eng land, the approach of Zeppelins is heralded by means of the wild commotion among the birds, which arc sensitive to the vibration long before the airship engines can be heard by human scouts. An initiative petition to repeal the Sunday closing law is now in circulation. So also is a petition in circulation to initiate a blue law dosing all business houses on Sunday. The next ballot will in all probability be of the usual length. Germany has taxed poor little Belgium a sum of $8,000,000 per month on account of the war. J hese United States have to pay a war tax m the" time of peace. COURT PROCEEDINGS ( Continued from Inst wook). E. 0.
