"The family thinks that it is up to me to do all the washing, ironing, mending and cooking; incidentally keep the house in apple pie order, myself epic and span.” “Every month some new labor saving device is installed where friend husband is employed, to reduced labor and worry; but for me, it is the weekly drudge year in and year out. Nobody gives us a care. “Folks wonder and ask why I don’t get out more,, entertain my friends, visit stores and take advantage of bargains. I could, too, if friend husband would permit me to send our family laundry to Jones.’ He says it costs too much, and that we must save for that pleasure trip some day. I am afraid it will be a health resort and an early grave instead.” WE SAY Give the wife a vacation from the family wash at least during the dangerous winter time. You will add to her health, life and en joyment-something no money can buy. Begin next week-send it to JONES LAUNDRY CO INC.

Since then its scope and activities have been enlarged, and many better methods have been put into use. Portions of the law and some of our methods have been adopted by sister states, and also by the United States forestry depart ment. We reiterate the principles set forth in our letter of March 18, 1920. to the chief forester of the United States, and maintain that the national forests, and other forest lands under federal control, excepting military and scenic reserves, should be ceded to the state, and until that time the federal government should pay the taxing units of the state sums equi valent to the income which would be derived if such lands were privately owned. We are opposed to the ex change of timber for logged-off lands as proposed by government officials, as it opens a door for peculation and increases the government’s holdings, already too great. We recognize fire protection as the primal need in successful reforesting. It should include all area where fire may occur, up-to-date methods, and the testing of all that appears useful and practical. We ask the co-opera tion of the federal government in avia tion, with a view to its utilization in forest protection. Methods and prac tice in forestry and fire fighting must be adjusted to local conditions. It has been found that sowing grass seed in logged-off lands after first burning is a valuable fire protective measure, and we believe that seeding should be encouraged whether the land is to be used for timber-growing, grazing, or agriculture. We recommend a measure that will prevent smoking in lumbering opera tions and the forests, and also revi sion of our laws to prohibit the start ing or use of fire in or near forest* for idle or unnecessary purposes dur ing the closed season, except such places as may be prepared for camp ing and recreation purposes; and to this end, we further recommend a measure authorizing this board to designate and prepare places for use as official camping grounds. We favor a careful study of for est taxation which will result in fixing fair rates and enable timber owners and timber growers to decide what policies they can safely adopt. We favor a measure that will per mit the purchase of logged-off lands from private individuals for the pur pose of growing timber on non-agri cultural areas and in order that con tiguous lands may be secured, the state should have power to condemn such areas as may be required to create a safety zone, or where needed by the state for growing tim ber. All mountainous and semi-moun tainous lands which show evidence of producing commercial timber, and which are too rugged for agricultural or horticultural purposes, do not need to be classified. Such lands should1 be designated for timber growing pur poses and should be acquired in large, contiguous areas, by state. Additional adjacent lands should be designated for classification and when deter mined by competent classification to be more valuable for timber than for other purposes, they may be add ed thereto. To insure a maximum yield of tim ber, the young growth artas should be carefully gone over and approved methods of replacement Hhould be car ried out wherever natural seeding is insufficient. Also, where no reproduc tion is visible, immediate steps should be taken to plant seed trees, partic ularly on hillsides, ridges and places wliese best opportunity is afforded for. natural scattering of seed. Ex periments should be conducted to de termine best methods under various conditions. We favor extension of classification of lands as needed and. each year we should add to the amount of such in formation now in the records of the state land and forestry departments. It is to the interest of all citizens of the state that they be kept advised of the work and the importance of keeping fire out of our timber. All educational institutions should teach more extensively the forest fire laws, their observance, fire risks and the necessity for caution. The government board should be composed of men who have had train ing and experience in forestry, a ma jority of which should be practical timbermen and lumbermen thorough ly experienced in the industry. The protective organization should be se lected for its fitness, experience and I ability, without regard to political af j filiations.

Bartlett, formerly port captain of the division of operations of the United States shipping board in Seattle and prior to tijat port captain of the board in Portland", arrived in Seattle a few days ago from the east coast as mas ter of the steamship Osaqumsick, of the Pacific Steamship Company’s ship ping board fleet. Captain Bartlett brought the steamships Admiral Far ragut, Admiral Sampson and Admiral Watson to Seattle from Philadelphia when they were purchased by the Ad miral Line. He served at different times as master of the Admiral Samp son and Admiral Watson when they were plying between Puget Sound and California under the house flag of the Pacific-Alaska Navigation Company. The Admiral Sampson while bound for Alaska was in collision with the steamship Princess Victoria off Port No-Point and sank in deep water. The Admiral Watson is now operating in the Seattle-Alaska trade. Captain Bartlett was commander of the United States shiping board’s steamship Tippecanoe, a former Ger man ship, when she was sunk by a Teuton diver off the Bay of Biscay, July 25, 1918. The Tippecanoe was torpedoed by the diver and sank in twenty-five minutes. Captain Bart lett and his crew were picked up by an American destroyer and landed in Brest, France. One member of the crew, an oiler, was killed when the Tippecanoe was torpedoed. The of ficers and crew of the ship were taken to New York from Brest in an Ameri can transport. Captain Bartlett will be appointed commander of the steam ship Keystone State of the shipping board when she is ready to leave the yards of her builders on the east coast for this port. The Keystone State is to be operated between Seat tle and the Orient. lYour eyes fitted. Compound and stigmatic lenses replaced. See Os borne.
