Vanderllp. upon to produce all of our ordinary We (ought and won the Spanish : comforts and luxuries. It is plain war with 150,000 soldiers and a ' as two and two that nil of us must $200,000,000 bond issue. In men j make personal sacrifices, must give under arms we now hnve ten times up comforts and luxuries, even neces that number. We issued ten times . sary expenditures that can be post that amount of bonds in the first Lib- j poned, if there Is to be labor and erty Loan. We nre proposing to spend and loan to the allies in the first fiscal year of the war $19,000, 000,000. From now until the end of this fiscal year the treasury antic!- pates needing $300,000,000 a week that Is, the treasury has got to fight financially a Spanish war every four days. That indicates a money measure of the size of the work, but that Is not the real measure. We have just seen that one might have plenty of money, but an empty coil bin. In just the same way the gov- eminent can have plenty of money, but an unequipped army. This army FACE the FACTS LET us face the facts. The war situation is critical. Unless the Allies fight as they never yet have fought, defeat threatens. Hungry men cannot fight at their best; nor hungry nations. France, England, and Italy are going hungry unless we feed them. Wheat Savings They must have wheat It is the best food to fight on. It is the easiest to ship. We alone can spare it to them. By saving just a little les3 than a quarter of what we ate last year we can support those who are fighting our battles. And we can do it without stinting ourselves. We have only to substitute another food just as good. The Corn of Plenty Corn is that food. There's a surplus of it. Providence has been generous in the hour of our need. It has given us corn in such bounty as was never known before. Tons of corn. Train loads of corn. Five hundred million bushels over and above our regular needs. All we have to do is to learn to appreciate it. Was ever patriotic duty made so easy? And so clear? America' Own Food Com ! It is the true American food. The Indians, hardiest of races, lived on it. Our forefathers adopted the diet and conquered a continent. For a great section of our country it has blong een the staff of life. How well the South fought on it, history tells. Now it can help America win a world war. Learn Something Corn! It isn't one food. It's a dozen. It's a cereal. It's a vegetable. It's a bread. It's a dessert. It's nutritious; more food value in it, dollar for dollar, than meat or eggs or most other vegetables. It's good to eat; how good you don't know until you've had corn-bread properly cooked. Best of all, it's plentiful and it's patriotic. Corn's Infinite Variety How much do you know about corn? About how good it is? About the many delicious ways of cooking it? And what you miss by not knowing more about it? Here are a few of its uses : There are at least fifty ways to use corn meal to make good dishes for dinner, supper, lunch or break fast. Here are some suggestions: HOT BREADS Boston brown bread. Hoecake. Muffins. Biscuits. Griddle cakes. Waffles. HEARTY Corn-meal croquettes. Meat and corn-meal dumplings. Italian polenta. Tamales. The recipes are in Farmers' Bulletin 565, "Corn Meal as a Food and Ways of Using It," free from the Department of Agriculture.

The following are things that go to make good cows: (1) good breed ing (good sires); (2) proper devel opment of the heifers; (3) not breed ing heifers too young; (4) llheril and proper feeding; (5) accurate , records; (6) good cere; (7) healthy ' cows. I Too Much for the Ijiuycr At a trial in Baltimore a youthful ; physician was summoned as a wit ' ness, and naturally In the cross-ex amination a lawyer seized the occa - sion to be sarcastic. "Are you," demanded the lawyer, "entirely familiar with the symptoms of concussion of the brain?" The young physician replied, "Yes, sir, I am." Then the smart lawyer put a hypo thetical case before the doctor in this way: "If my lerrned friend, Mr. Held, and myself should bang our heads ' together, would we get concussion of the brain?" ! The young physician calmly re- plied, "Mr. Held might.' The number of women employed In munition ftctcries has Increased from 3,500 in 1910 to more than 100,000 in 1917, according to a re port made to tho National Ler.gue of t Women's service, and 1,266,000 wo men are engaged In Industrial work which is directly or Indirectly neces sary to carry on tho war. Four tons of shipping capacity are required to transport a soldier, and another ton Is neceseary for his equipment. In addition. It takes 50 pounds of ship capacity a day to keep him supplied with food, clothing and ammunition. YOU SHOULD BUY f'iin.

No mercy will bo shown the retail merchants of the stnte who do not abide by the new ruling of tho United States food administration In regard to the restricted sale of wheat flour by moans of combination sales with wheat substitutes. Word having been received at tho state admliilstrution office to the effect that some mer chants over the state nre paying no heed to the individual instructions which have bee i cent to them in re gard to the matter, W. K. Newell, as sistant food administrator for Ore- , gon. Bald: "As soon as definite and conclusive evidence has been received, showing that a merchant has not complied with the Instructions In regard to selling wheat flour In a proportion of one to thrno with substitutes, he will be unable to buy any further supply from the wholesale dealors. His sup ply will be definitely and finally cut off and he will automatically have 'to go out of business as regards the sale of grains. Theso aro the Instruc- jtions we huve from hendquarters, and the United States food admlnlstra- tion is empowered to do this." St. Helens dealers, as far as ca'i be learned, are complying with the Instructions sent to them the first of tho week. FARM LABOR AND THE CROP SURVEY One of the most fur reaching and important undertakings yet made by the government In connection with the war conditions at home' Is tlm i farm labor anil crop survey to be i made next week. Everywhere nnn. pie are making great sacrifices for the country's causo. It Is hut a small request the government Is muk Ing when It calls upon the farmers to make this complete and accurate survey of Its agricultural needs and resources. Every farmer In the county will be called upon by some locnl committee man during the coming week to state as best he can a comparison of last year's crop with this yeur's. Ho Is e.lso to make known his labor needs. The department of ngrlculture Is ex pecting every county to make a re port of 100 per cent of the farmers. Everybody help und tho Job will be a success. P FARMERS' CLUB MEETS The Qulncy Furmers' Club held a good, Interesting meeting on Janu ary 26. The subject of lime for the soil and the importation of some good, clean potato seed were the principal topics discussed. The farmers resolved to perfect a more pormanent type of organization hav ing some definite lines of work as Its object. The farms In tills com munity In generul are small and only by more co-operative work and com munity spirit can their local diffi culties bo overcome. The furmers generally are Interested In growing potatoes and the united effort will be made to Improve the product of this crop. February 23 was sot as tlia next meeting date and the new or ganization will be perfected ut that time.
