Foreign Advertising Representative THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION There are 5,735,000 persons out of a job in the United States, Secretary of Labor Davis reports to the sen ate. factory workers, mechanics, building trades show highest per centages of unemployment, total ling 3,900,000 alone. There are worse places than being on a farm, even in these times. If the average mother of an aver age family got "time and a half'' for all over-time, she would have to borrow from her husband to pay her income tax. According to census reports more than 1,600,000 men and women over the age of 45 years are eking out a miserable existence in single bles sedness. The index numbers continue to reigster a checking of the down ward movement of prices. July and August prices, averaged by commodities, show a firm upward trend. As prices now stand, this means a fixed change in the relation of farm products to most other goods, for the fall in price of the latter is checked far short of the depths reached by the farmer. Farm products must rise, or other products continue to fall, or agri culture must submit definitely to a less favorable situation relatively to other industries than it occupied prior to the war.—Lincoln Journal. y What is gambling? That depends. If the colored brother shoots craps, that's gambling. If fellows in a back room play cards for cigars thats pleasure for the man who wins. A half dollar on the side makes it sport. If a selected few in a parlor play poker, that is sociability. If a city exchange fleeces the innocent that's business. If the W?ll Street wolves clip the wool from the lambs that's big busi ness. Life is a gamble, and the coffin holds the stakes—Ex. It is estimated that 2 million tons of sugar will be cairied over in the U. S. this year. This amounts to 6 months consumption. The Cuban, Louisiana, domestic beet crops are all unusually large. If consumers du not greatly benefit by still fur ther reductions in retail prices it will be because some where along the line between producer and con sumer there is profiteering. The public was gouged to the limit when sugar was scarce. Now that it is plentiful it should get the full benefit. What's the use of this country trying to get in touch with Mars? First thing we know the next thing will be a Mars relief fund. Maybe the hundred nude Canadian doukhobors, religious fanatics, who attempted to force their way across the Canadian border into this country this week, heard about the latest thing in ladies' wearing ap parel and concluded that this country would be a haven of refuge for them. The local lodges would feel utter ly lost without N. Btocke, custodian of the traternal temple. Mr. Brocke not only looks after his duties as custodian in a most efficient man ner, but he is one of the mainstays in nearly every lodge in town. He is greatly interested in the lodges and in their welfare and devotes a large part of his time to them. He has filled nearly all of the offices in most of the lodges. When any of the lratermties wish to put on a "big feed" they simply turn the matter over to Mr. and Mrs. Brocke, knowing full well that it will be done just right. Mrs. Brocke's cakes and Mr. Brocke's coffee nave an en viable reputation in this neck of the woods. Unless orchards in the Potlatch j country receive better care than "IS THIS YOURS?"

Bobbroff. they have during the past few years, it will be only a question of a short time until the people of this local ity will have to import practically all of their fruit. As it is, there are few saleable apples in any of the orchards here. Many of the trees are dying from the lack of care and scale is killing or damag ing trees, particularly in orchards in the Potlatch canyon. This country can produce splendid fruit if the trees are given the same care that they get in other localities where fruit is the principal crop. Intensive cultivation, spraying and pruning are as necessary to grow good fruit as plowing is to produce big grain yields. METHODIST CHl'RCH. Howard W. Mort, Tastor.

The liens should he culled out dur ing the summer and early fall months, beginning to cull out the poor producers just as soon as they stop laying, which is usually in July and August. When a hen is laying her comb will he large, full of blood, and bright red in color. As she stops lay ing. the comb becomes small and shrunken, pale or dull in color, and is usually rather hard. Another good indication to use in selecting thosi liens which stop laying early is molt ing, as the hens that start to molt early—that Is, in July and August— are usually the poorest producers. While a hen which has molted most of tier feathers is very easy to pick out by sight u i'hnut examination, the only way to ascertain accurately when tile liens begin to molt is to han dle them. Before the body and wing feathers are molted in any great num ber you will find short pin feathers growing thickly on the back and in ttie feather tracts running bark from the breast, indicating that these liens have started to -molt and probably have stopped laying If their eomhf and general appearance indicate non production. The pelvic hones are alsc helpful in making this test ns these two hones tend to close up when th* hen stops laying. If the spread be tween these hones measures tw< lingers or less the probability is that the lien Is not laying, while If the spread Is greater, together with othet Indications mentioned, she is probably laying.
