A THE JOBS THE BOYS LEFT BEHIND THEM. Many expedients have been suggest ed as to what is the best thing we can do to make places for returning sol diers and sailors. Reclaiming land by clearing stumps, reclamation, irrigation, drainage, etc., are sought to be made popular under takings. Allowing for the restless and unset tled frame of mind produced in many men by war, most of them will want to return to their jobs. Unemployment is a ruthless enemy, and what any man wants first of all who works for a living, is a job, upon his return to civil life. The first thing for our returning mil lions of men is good times with busi ness and industry in a vigorous, up looking condition. The worst thing for our boys coming home is to find industry slack, business slow and prosperity a minus article. Industries should not be hampered and discouraged by foolish legislative experiments, regulations and high taxes. Blair Hoar came over from Lewiston this afternoon, intending to stop at Ah sahka and go up the North Fork on ia fishing trip, but learned that he was going to run into the "flu" and come on to Orofino.
