Dean Milam was , . , speaking on Homemaking From a New Standpoint. "Homemaking today presents a big labor problem," said Dean Milam. "The housewife must know whether to bake her bread or to buy It. Information on nutrition and food selection must be studied. Instead of living in their homes many are living in apartments. Frequently architects are alowed to plan houses but not to save steps. "The housewife will profit by the lesson shown by the draft when 20 per cent of the men were unfit for serv ice. Then there will be less idleness, better health, more efficiency, morrow we must let the pendulum 1 swing back to simplicity again. The j family must lead a more simple life."

CHEAPER LAND CLEARING FOR THE WEST SIDE va The new method has worked suc cessfully in Oregon, where it was cost ing $200 to clear an acre with the or dinary methods; a number of acreages were cleared by the new method for $100 per acre, or one-half the cost. This fact has stirred farmers and logged-off land owners In .western Washington, so thnt there is a demand to see a demonstration of the new stump burning device. The new method consists of a burner arranged in the form of a «mall, heavy, cast iron furnace, which burns a little bark and the wood of the of the fir stump. It hums a hole through the stump and converts the hanked stump Into a roaring furnace, burning the roots deep Into the ground. Stumps from two to eight feet In diameter have been burned in Oregon from $1.50 to $2 per stump, and 110 large bole In the ground Is left. "The new I,timer.'* says R. M. Tur-1 „er of the Extension Service. has taken much of the hard work and ex pense out of land clearing and. In stead, has placed an interesting winter occupation for the farmer. He only needs to tend the burners in the day time when his chores are done, and for that reason it fits in excellently with our winter farm work. The out fit is very practical and is not expen sive. It works in all soils but it pure sand or a washed gravel. It Is suc cessful on any soil, from a sandy loam down to the heavy clays, and will burn fir. spruce, pine and oak." Demonstrations for stump burning have been scheduled in King county for April 29. Snohomish county May 6 , Pierce county May 13 and Clallam county May 20. The burning has now actually started in King county pre paratory to the demonstration.

By Sidney Norman. Editor .Mining Truth, Spokane. Everything possible must lie done to strengthen the hands of those! friends of the magnesite industry in ' tlie United States who are fighting valiantly for imposition of a tariff The magnesite industry of Stevens ' county is teh only great enterprise created in this section of the country by the exigencies of war. At a time During «he progress of the tariff fight at Washington, a mass of in formation was placed before the House and Senate committees. Much of it was relevant and much more of I it quite irrelevant and merely given ! to muddy the waters. The Plain Facts. The great magnesite industry of Stevens county cannot live with a lower tariff than $15 on dead-burned and $10 on crude, a s fixed by the ways and means com of mittee of the House. finance The facts are these: The Senate committee's recommendation of $8 for dead-burned and $6.25 for crude would mean the death of the local industry. The great plant at Chewelah would remain closed down, to the irreparable injury of the entire Northwest. There can be no question upon that score. Either the Senate must lie made to see the error of its in committee's recommendation, or the 1 plants in Stevens county abandoned and the money invested in them written off. must be the the There is no chance that the domes tic product can compete successfully with the foreign under the Senate com mittee's recommendation. No Ameri can magnesite can find its way to the Atlantic coast at this time, either in competition with the Austrian prod uct, for refractories, or with the Gre fall thel 1 ' 811 P IO< l U( 'L f° r plastic cement work. to The ,owest costs in the fields of Stevens county, f. o. b. cars on Pa cidc coast or at all >' point in the state Washington, are over $25 per ton. on a Production -basis sufficient to su PP'y tb ® markets of^ Chicago ami the Middle W est. Reduction of that cost to $20.50 per ton might be possible upon a production basis sufficient to supply the market as far east as At lantic seaboard points. However, there is not the slightest chance, nor is it j even hoped by producers, that the do mestic industry will be called upon to ' supply more than one-half of the pur- i American demand, even with a tariff be- 0 f $15 per ton. Austria Has It AIL Austria has had the entire Ameri can market for dead-burned magnesite all to herself for the past sixteen months, not a ton of domestic mate rial having been produced in that time. -Prior to the war, when both Aus trinn labor and fuel were higher than suc or for and new now. foreign costs were less than $ 1 " per ton lauded on American shores, or less than $9 per ton f. o. I). cars nt Austrian plants. Does the Senate finance committee believe that American producers can pay h minimum wage of $3 per day. as against Austrian average wages of the 27 1-2 cents per day and produce mag nesite calcines for $25 per ton, paving $21 per ton freight In addition and compete with foreign magnesite, the delivered cost of which is certainly not over $15 per ton at points of com petition on th Atlantic coast? Or, does it think that domestic in vestments in foreign lands are more sacred than domestic investments in the the In . „ Tur-1 0 U I, own C0U „ n 1 tryT has >, To , any '»' d '"«-' y ">«» » amaz ex- '" g ,ha, , our ow " Kovemn.enr should In- heaitate for one moment t0 nfford f '* n day and out suc now pre all be the con protection to a domestic industry that would make us independent of foreign sources of supply in both peace and war tlme£. Industry Here Big. The industry of Stevens county will support over 500 men at good wages in conformity with American stand ards of living, and thus bring prosper ity over a wide area. It Is interest ing to remember thnt in four years prior to 1921 the Northwest Magne site company alone paid over $5,000, 000 In freight rates on magnesite shipped to eastern points and incom ing supplies necessary for conduct of its great enterprise. The preservation of this industry is one of the most important duties now before the people of the Northwest, especially those of Spokane and the neighboring county of Stevens. Noth ing must be left undone to strengthen the hands of these who aee fighting our battles. They are not fighting for the magnesite producer alone, but for the happiness and prosperity of every man, womnu and child in this great Northwest. of will SCHOOL DAYS t4-4*t - ea-ee «Î E( ' ks» jt ou fin sp ».

T HERE are many civic positions which will certainly be open to women in a short time, not only here and there, but everywhere. In many of our smaller cities and towns the women's clubs have done a great civic work already, proving that wom en are well fitted to do such work. There Is no reason at all why a woman should not be commissioner of street cleanlng. and there seem to be mnny reasons pointing to the fact that she would be an excellent one. As factory inspectors, as recorders, and in posi tions having to do with the household Fide of the community, women can do excellent work. Women who go into politics should go with a sense of service to the body politic. If they do that and can point to results that prove them square, honest and devoted, many women are going to find themselves elected to city If you have a lient toward civic work, study the problems In your own community. The past generation saw the marvellous development of women as to the business world. The coming one is sure to see an equally amazing entry into the world of political work. Jobs. So far women who have been ap pointed to various city or state posl tlons have not had to play politics, They have been given such positions because they were fitted for them and hud the necessary training. That Is the right spirit. Get your training and do your studying, know your problems and the type of people with whom you must work.
