THE ZCNE RATE IS JUS! bureau of the Department of Agriculture has re cently developed a fire extinguischer to be attached to threshing machines for the Duroose of automatically put ting out any fire caused by an explosion in the latter. Ex plosions are often produced Dy the ignition of dust from smut ty grain which permeates the chambers of the thresher and in many cases have resulted in the total destruction of the newlv harvested crop, the threshing outfit, and near-by barns. The protective device is described in the June Popu lar Mechanics Magazine. It consists of a cylindrical tank mounted beside the thresher r.nd connected with it by pipes. The tank is filled with water containing certain chemicals in solution and also a sealed flask cf acid.. It is so connected with the machine that an explosion releases a hammer in the tank which breaks the flask. The resulting mingling of the two liquids instantly creates a gas, while the pressure produced by the gas forces the fluid through the pipes, so that the threshing machine is thoroughly sprayed before the fire gains headway.

SPOR TS Some of the food hoarders must be irritated at nature's habit of grow ing food which they cannot hide away. 'JT HE contention that the proposed zone rate for newspapers and maga : Tihit-s jjt going to destroy the ' Treexiom of the press in Ameri ' a. is nonsense, displayed at a time when the country is too bxtsy to be bothered with fool hne. in any form. The East Oregonian pays five or six times more postage ca-"Vi miiTith than rlnpa rtnv rtthpt Mewspaper in this region. Yet tlif cpvnse for second clas. Tostaye is never a serious con federation to this paper, nor to any other newspaper. If Uncle i-iani wishes to increase his sec iri class rate let him go to it. If i'll lines of business and indus try are to be taxed for war pur fMes why should newspapers he exempt? The assumption Oiat increased second class rilM will drive newspapers to " wall is childish. A to magazines or farm journals of nationwide circula tion the story is somewhat dif ferent. Such publications may 'or rrally -hurt. Nevertheless he 7Anp system of charges is titsi and businesslike. It means r.n attempt to assess charges . a basis of the cost of ser- vic. It is the principle that vovernK charges made by all w-ivate carriers and there is no reason why the government should not follow the same i:re. As a matter of fact it is Trsr.1y absurd for the govern mnt to charve one rate for all sworn! flans business, reirard- ei of the distance a publica tion is to go. It is not right ".rtjit a Now York publisher HOSE who argue that the road bonds should be vot ed down on the score of economy either misunderstand the case or else indulge in demagogy. No economy could be served by voting down the bonds. The auto licenses, increased to take care of the bonds, must be paid just the same whether or not the bonds carry. The difference between bonds and no bonds is this if the bonds are voted the com mission will be able to do some comprehensive highway work in Umatilla county and else where; if the bonds are voted down it will be necessary to rely on current funds and little effective work can be done, though the expense will be as great as though the bonds had been voted. Take your choice. The Wall Street Journal complains at the proposal of the government to lay a special war tax on steel products; tne nerve of some people is beyond all understanding. s The chief ideal Russia should keep a tight hold upon is the ambition to defeat Germany. The forest service men should make good soldiers. j 28 Years Ago Today j FT mil the ?"rii! Kcutf Oregonian.

PIMPLES ALL OVER FACE AND NECK Got Worse. Would Smart. Bothered Several Months. In a Week Cuti cura Soap and Ointment Healed. "I noticed that I had a number of pimples on my neck and face. Udid not nay much attention to them, and Hnaliy they got worse, and I tried but it did not help. The pimples were rather large and soft, and they festered and came to a head. They were scattered all over my face and neck, and at night and thnHifrh the day they would smart. I could hardly go out for fear of people noticing the condition of my neck. "1 had been bothered several months before I used Cuticura Soap and Oint ment. 1 used them for two nights when the pimples be(ran to dry up, and dis a'ppeared, and after I had used both for a week I was healed, and I have one of the prettiest complexions.
