fell over a Inrge rock and the ball
went over his heud. and before It
could he recovered McKenna waa
comfortably settled on the third bane.
A hit and several errors mi tie It port
able for the Cornfuota to chr.ee over
three runn In the first frame, und
they followed suit la the second.
Clynes, the new mnn secured from
Salt lnke. lived up to hln reputation
as a slugger. He gathered two hora

was responsible for three of the four

Roth Davis and Sutherland were

were all with Sutherland. Kddlo

unlikely he will be In the lineup

FARMERS SAVE MONEY
ON CLOVER SEED
futility Agent Howard DixU-iltub
More Than H.IMIO INiunils.
Through the services r.nd energy
of County Agricultural Agent Dl V.
Howard, a number of Columbia coun
ty furmers secured their supply of
clover seed at a less price thnn Port
land wholesale seed merchants were
charging. Mr. Howard, through the
co-operation of the O. A. V. at Cor
vallls, wus put in touch with a large
deuler In clover seed and he ordered
four tons, or 8,000 pounds. The
prlco charged the furmers was 26
cents per pound, when retailers were
charging 34 to 37 cents per pound.
Mr. Howard had only four sacks of
seed left on hand, end fearing these
might not be called for he sold them
to a Portland wholesaler for one cent
per pound more than was charged the
furmers. Figured on a basis of (
cents per pound, Mr. Howard saved
the furmers of the county close to
$4 R0. He recently made arrange
ments for a large lot of seed oats,
nnd sold these to the farmers at abso
lute cost and at a great saving to
them. Bo during the paHt sixty days
the county agricultural agent has
saved the farmers of the county more
than one-third of the amount the
county Is required to pay him for sal
ary. Mr. Howard Is always ready to
help farmers who will accept his help
and is doing geat work in the agri
cultural development of the county.
GLASS FOUND IN FOOD
IN BUT ONE CASE
The frequent and widespread pub
lication of statements concerning the
presence of ground glass in food
stuffs has led the committee on pub
lic Information to Inquire into the
authenticity of these reports. -It lias
been advised by the food adminis
tration that thorough investigations
of more than 200 of the cases has
disclosed only one instance In which
ground glass was found In the food
stuffn Inspected.
The cane in which glass wr.s found
occurred at Fort Smtlh, Ark. A ba
ker In that town had had trouble
wtlh his employes, one of whom, de
siring to destroy his employer's busi
ness, hud filled with glass a loaf of
bread which was to be delivered to
an orphanuge. When the bread was
Korved to the inmates of the Institu
tion several of them suffered lacera
tions of their lips. No more serious
injuries resulted.

Hevera! (jood MnU-lie Home llovs
Make (JfMd HhoHlng.
Secretary McCarthy of the St. Hel
ens Athletic Club staged the club's
initial boxing amoker last Friday
night at Moose ball. The attendance
was fairly good and all seemed to en
Joy the contests. The first exhibition
was a bout betweenVSnm Hattan of

argument and after taking two
rounds of good punishment Schultz
picked out a soft place on the floor
end refused to get up. The two
main events of the evening were the
matches between Smoky Hnum and
Carl Gabrlelson of St. Helens nnd
RlllX Ryan and Abe Gordon of Port

hammer and tongs for four rounds, i
and the referee declared the bout a
draw, which seemed to meet with
the approval of the spectators. The

a classy six-round exhibition. Both
are v good boxen, and showed some
nice footwork and punching.
Before the last bout George Mc
Donald, the referee, cr.lled for a con
tribution for the Hed(Cross, nnd many
pieces or money were thrown Into the
ring. It was turned over to a com
mittee, who delivered It to Mrs.

the two St. Helens boys, Baum and
GahrlelHon, will ngnin try conclu

ENGINEERS BUILD
RAILWAYS IN FRANCE
The official review of the flrst year
of war Issued by the committee on
public Information contained the fol
lowing description of the work of
American engineers in France:
American engineers have gone Into
French forests and done the work of
the pioneers of our new northwest.
They have frequently been under fire.
One of their first tasks was the re
construction nnd extension of a rail
road 600 miles long to carry our pro
ducts from ports of disembarkation
to general bases of operation.
The First Engineer troops, 1,100
strong, arrived in France about three
months after war was declared.
Since then the number has been
greatly augmented. These troops
have been constantly engaged in gen
eral engineering work, Including the
construction of railways, docks, can
tonments, wharves and hospitals.
An American army locomotive was
built In this country in 21 days and
slipped to the expeditionary forces.
Many other locomotives, cars, log
ging trains, trucks, dissembling
buildings and other equipment have
been shipped to augment the output
and facilitate the construction opera
tions of American forces abroad.
NON-FIGHTING MEN
IN SOLDIER UNIFORM
General condemnation, as slackers,
of the men In army or navy uniform
who are stationed at Washington or
at some of the other army or navy
posts and stations about the country
ought to be tempered by considera
tion of the fact that not a tew of
them came Into their respective
branches of the service by general
or direct governmental Invitation.
Undoubtedly it Is true that to a large
extent the places of non-combatant
men in uniform can be filled, by men
who are outside of the draft age, but
whatever shitting of men may be
deemed necessary, credit ought not
be denied to those who, called or en
listed for a speciflo duty, have been
doing It faithfully. Philadelphia

CITY COUNCIL HAS
A STORMY SESSION
JITNEY ORDINANCE UP
Metttker and Allen Kngage in Blood
ies Duel Ordinance Pawed.
Perhaps It was because the council
knew, and the outsiders guessed that
an ordinance would be passed last
Monday night prohibiting fireworks,
that they wanted to Indulge In them
to tbe last minute, for there were
certainly some verbal bombs let loose.
dayor Sr.xon, after the usual pre
liminaries and without thinking what
he was going to start, cleared the
decks for p.ction whea he aaked N.
O. Larabee end H. 3. Southard If they
had anything to say to the council.
Well, both of these gentlemen had
something to say and it was about
the small matter of charging their
Fords a jitney license of $30 per
year - and rot making proportionate
charges on other vehicles. Council
men Allen and McDonr.ld tried to ex
plain the ordinance and its justness
but' the objecting gentleman could
not see the point. About this time.
District Attorney Melalier came to
the rescue of the jltneymen. Coun
cilman 'Allen started to explain to
him, but M tsker wouldn't listen, and
proceeded to tell Allen what he
thought of him and ended the sermon
by Inviting him outside for a fistic
contest. Allen protested that he was
not a prizefighter, and just at this
time Marshal Potter called Metsker
to order and the proceedings were
continued with some degree of dig
nity. Tbe council finally agreed to
consider a readjustment of the jitney
schedule.
''"Two ordinances were Introduced
nnd IMBflAil rinA ni.nhlMtln , V. a a n
purchase or use of fireworks tn the
city limits, and another prohibiting
chickens, ducks and geeee from run
ning at large. Inasmuch as people
are now raising war gardens, the
council placed an emergency clause
on tbe ordinance, and tt is now ef
fective. as a matter or information to the
chicken owners, It Is thought best to
give a few clauses from the ordi
nance. Section one reads "If any chicken, '
duck or goooe, or any number of
either of them shall be found running
nt large within the city of St Helens,
It shall be the duty of the marshal of
the city to take up and Impound such
fowls. If the owner of the captured
fowls Is located he shall pay the city
a $1 impounding fee.' When the mar
shal or marshals capture the fowls
it shall be their duy to notify the
owner or person in charge of the
fowls, and it after three days the
fowls are not claimed, then the mar
shal shall proceed to sell same, but
before so doing shall post notices
that he has Impounded such fowls
and state when the sale shall be
made." '.
Section six creates numerous depu
ty marshals, for it states, "Any per
son upon whose premises any such
fowls shall trespass, Is for the pur
ple of this ordinance designated and
appointed a special deputy marshal
fcr assisting In catching any such
fowls," but even then the catcher of:
the fowl does not get the fowl for
keeps, for the ordinance sets forth ,
very plainly "that every deputy mar- '
shal shall Immediately turn over to '
the marshal such fowl or fowls, to be .
by him disposed of as hereinbefore
provided." -;
It therefore appears that If one of '
these deputy or special marshals '
c:. tenesmi chicken he must lmmedl
ately notify Marshal Potter or Depu-
ty Blakesley, who, It appears from '
the ordinance, have been designated ''
as the official chicken chasers In St.
Heietis. Of course this applies to the
feathered chickens .only.
As stated, the "chicken ordinance"
carried the emergency clause, so it Is
now unlawful for them to run at
large. Councilman Allen voted
against the measure' and Barton and
McDonald voted for it, and the mayor
nlun vntnd In the affirmative, so the
ordinance is now a cl.y law.
The new council haa been In ses- '
slon twice and each time haa had to '
consular legibiuuuii wiiiuii wuuiu
knock out proceedings of the pre
vious council.
