FOR STATE VETS Provide Farm Training — Com pensation Claim Period Ex pires August 9. Training disabled war veterans with agricultural ambitions on their own land this spring and summer is a new factor in the program of the United States Veterans' bureau in the north west. according to L. C. Jesseph, of Seattle, district manager. Mr. Jesseph stated that project training of this kind is expected to prove better on the average than any other kind of vocational training now being taken up by 3300 disabled veterans of the Pad tic northwest. Veterans of the rural districts especially are expected to accept this opportunity of training on their own land. Officials of the veterans' bureau will assist the dis abled former service men to secure the land, many times without payment of interest Compensation payments made by the government goes a long way toward paying for the land, it was stated. That all ex-service men believing that they were injured by their war service in the slightest degree should make claim for compensation whether they are compensable under the pres ent law or not. according to au im partant announcement made by Man ager Jesseph. Privilege of making compensation claims because of war injuries expirea August 9 of this year. If the claim is made now, however, it may be reopened for consideration after August 9. This action on the part of the veterau will protect him against aggravation of the injury which may be slight now. Disallowed Claims Reversed. Scores of disabled war veterans who have so far failed to connect their in juries with war service are appealing lb dr cases to the bureau's district ap peal board in Seattle. Eighty-seven cases of war veterans whose cases had been disallowed were awarded govern ment compensation and vocational training during the last month. There are 158 more appeal cases peitdiug be fore the board at the present time Disabled veterans living in rural dis tricts who would have former deci sions appealed should ask an official of the Washington department of the American Legion act as attorneys for them liefere the appeal board iu Se attle. Announcement was made that the new veterans' hospital at Walla Walla for tubercular war veterans will be opened during the month of May.

He reported that if the gold run on the original claims did not extend for more than 105 feet w ide, that they would pro duce between seven and eight million dollars, but he also stated that he did not see any reason why this gold should not continue for the full width of the claims, and' more, as he be lieves the old channel or depression is simply a large porphyry dyke that was rich in gold and ground down by aires.

This is very easily accounted lor whet /t is understood that nearly twice as much extracted houey aa > comb honey ein be produced by the same colony of bees during a season. This lessened production of comb honey caused its price to go up ataat higher than it was ever known to go before. But now that the price of eoah honey is high, many beekeepers are returning to its production, and doubUtu in a very few years it will be back to nearly where it was before the wit. But comb honey will always be preferred by a certain class of people even It it is high in price, and though the wax contained in it is quite indigestible, but quite harmless to our internal digestive apparatus.

"There has been an increase of 25 per cent in the number of colonies. 52 per cent in the amount of honey and 62 per cent in the amount of wax within the past ten years. This increase amounts to $500.000 during this period. The increase would have been much greater if the colonies located in the cities and towns had been re ported in the census; however, only those on farms were considered.
