It is remarkable'how quietly busi
ness has re-adjusted itself all over
the country from a war basis to a
peace basis. After such a long per
iod of destructive warfare it is sur
prising that business conditions
should remain on such an apparent
ly solid footing. President Wilson
stated in his message to Congress
that the American business man
was equal to the situation of recon
struction and that business would
come back to normal with very lit
tle assistance from the Government.
Labor will be absorbed into the var
ious activities of the country as fast
as demobilization takes place in
the army. It will have a less dis
astrous effect upon industry to find
employment for these men when
they are dismissed from the service
than it had to call them so suddenly
from their various occupations all
over the country. The period of
reconstruction promises a healthy
resumption of business activity.

that their action is prompted by the
fact that the amount of paper con
sumed by the weekly newspapers
is not sufficient to at this time,
materially affect the newsprint sit

that the knowledge obtained by the
board should be secured at the ex
pense of the country publisher, but
a little common sense should have
prompted them to the fact that the
country publisher who did not use
economical methods in the manage
ment of his business, would not be
running the business long anyway.
During the past' year the only
country publishers who have sur
vived are those who have used con
servation methods all along the line.

Now that William G. McAdoo has
resigned as secretary of the treasury
and it is the concensus of opinion
that he will not seek the democratic
nomination for president in 1920, he
is beginning to receive some of the
praise and expression of confidence
that were withheld from him by the
narrow partizan papers which ex-j
pected to oppose his candidacy for
president. Even the hide-bound
Spokesman-Review, which never
gave him a kind word during his
administration, states editorially
that he was without doubt one of

custom of giving "epitaphy"

"Bring Back My Soldier Boy to Me"
The following poem was handed
in by Mrs. Frank Palmer:
Out on the ocean,
Sailing o'er the stormy sea,
Is a sweet-faced soldier boy
Sp,very dear to me.
Gone to a foreign land
To fight for liberty;
When the cruel war is over
Bring him back to me.
Angels guard my soldier
Wherever he may be,
Sweet be his dreams
Upon the rolling sea.
Watch o'er him kindly,
Bring him ever peace and joy,
Guide him safely home to me
My sweet soldier boy.
For life and liberty,
The dear red, white and blue,
He left his home
And all he loved most true;
Fighting 'neath the colors
Which the foe can ne'er destroy
He the victory will win,
My pwn soldier boy.
When peace and happiness
Upon this heart shall reign,
When those who've parted
Shall meet and love again;
0, may my darling
Not be numbered with the slain—
Let me welcome to my heart
My soldier boy again.
Ora M. Dygert, Juliaetta, Idaho.
RATIONS FOR LAYING ST CK
Pullets on Farm Should Get Large
Part of Feed by Foraging if
No Snow on Ground.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
When there is no snow on the
ground pullets on the farm ought to
get a large part of their feed by for
aging. Whether they can get it de
pends not only upon what food may
be available but on whether they have
been so distributed as to get the feed
on tlie range. To find whether they
require more is to observe how far
they range and whether they find feed
enough to keep them busy most of the
time, and then to test them further
by seeing how much they eat heartily
in tlie morning, and then go foraging,
and also how much they eat just be
fore going to roost at night. Bullets
that forage well and have tlie oppor
tunity to get plenty of green food,
worms anil bugs cannot be overfed by
giving them what grain they will eat
up clean. Careful feeders learn just
how much their flock will take, and so
avoid waste while keeping the birds

season. Liberal use of these makes it

SUCCESS IN RAISING PIGEONS
Good Breeding Stock Is Essential and
It Is Best to Purchase From
Good breeding stock is necessary to
succeed in pigeon raising. It is advis
able to buy pigeons from reliable
breeders—those who guarantee their
stock. Many failures in squab raising
have been due to poor stock—old pig
eons past their period of usefulness,
or perhaps too many male birds. There
are a great many varieties of pigeons,
but only a few are used in squab rais
ing. The Homer is generally consid
ered tlie most popular variety.
SIX VARIETIES OF TURKEYS
Bronze, White Holland, Bourbon Red,
Black, Narragansett and Slate
The American Standard of Perfec

of domesticated turkeys ns most de

ways uncertain as to quality of the
piogeny. The standard varieties are
the Bronze, the White Holland, Bour
bon Red, the Black, the Narragansett
and the Slate.
