M. V. Caruthera. WE ARE BENEFICIARIES, NOT VICTIMS OME people think' they do something when they buy liberty bonds, sub scribe to the Red Cross and si milar funds and practice food economy. They even think they are bearing a burden. Forget it. The burden you carry is as a tooth pick compared with the work our boys at the front per form. They not only risk their lives and their health but they endure hardships and priva tions. They do all this for those at home while, we remain here in safety and ease, probably making double our usual in comes. The man who stays at home, reaps the blessings that come from war prosperity and then complains of the "war burden" is a piker from Pikersville. The only people entitled to any sympathy are those who have their loved ones, and at times their bread winners, at the front. , Hats off to these people. But not to those who complain from a financial standpoint. The "war burden in this section is a myth. We are so far the beneficiaries, not the victims of this war. SETTING EVERYBODY TO WORK yftF HIS is a day of sorrow and tribulation for all idlers and loafers in New York, in every social station, says the New York World commenting on its new work law. They must hunt for work of some useful kind or become liable to punishment under the law un less they happen to be less than eighteen or more than fifty years old. Worst of all, if they do not find work themselves the Btate will find it for them, and states are less fastidious in such matters than individuals. New York has taken only a casual interest in the enact ment of compulsory legislation by New Jersey and Maryland Now it faces the grim reality, and the blow falls on Broad way and Fifth Avenue no less than on the rural haunts of the hobo. Every male person of the requisite age must find something useful to do, wheth er he is an idler of refined or coarser type, clubman or lounge lizard, tramp or gang member. The drones in the human hive have fallen on evil days. For the first time in their lives they must show cause why they should exist in idleness while the rest of the race toils. The law is certain to have a beneficial effect. It will con- 'serve a man-power, hitherto wasted, thereby helping indus try, while no doubt it will serve to reclaim many idlers who i have never worked because they never had to. It should tend to democratize society by purging it of parasites. Ruskin said that no manlhad the right to eat his dinner until he had earned it.

There are people of German extraction who said a year ago that while they did not like to support warfare in Europe they would come to the front if America should be attacked. We have been attacked, up and down the Atlantic coast. Let them make good. There is no longer cause for anyone to hold aloof.

Good Quality Hay A Scarce Article in Portland Market PORTLAND June 7. Unusual scarcity of good quality hay Is shown in the local market, and prices for such offerings, while high, are on nominal basis. Several carloads of good eastern Oregon timothy are said to be rolling in this direction, but sem to be lost. In any event, the supply rolling Is small compared with the demand. Aside from this and a! falfa, there Is really no first class hay offering at the moment. With the closing down of most of the mills of the Pacific northwest be cause of their exceeding their quota of grain, the supply of millstuffs Is very small, while demand continues brisk. No general chauge Indicated in quotations. Coarse grains are showing remark able weakness In the face of the ex traordinary strength of the feed sit uation. The local office of the milling divi sion, food administration advises: "We are In receipt ofthe following information from headquarters of the milling division: 1 "Owing to the fact that it is not known upon what basis the mills will operate after July 1, mills are advised not to make sales at this time for ship ment after July 1. Where mills are at 'present unable to sell their products Jfor shipment before July 1 in dnrnes tlc markets because of operation of j 70 per cent shipping clause, they can, !in special caws justifying an excep tion secure permission to make suck Ishipmr-nts. This permission must be obtained eithor by telegraph nr in writing from the milling division at 14 Itroadway, New York City. There is to be a total eclipse of the Sun on June the 8th. All eyes will be turned toward "Old Sol" on this awe inspir ing occasion. . At each recurring total eclipse many persons are blinded or partially blinded by attempting to follow the passage of the moon across the disc of the Sun with the naked eye, even at this late date we find persons partially blinded from view ing eclipses in the past. ' Don't attempt to look at the sun unless the eyes are pro tected by a smoked glass or by glasses especially prepared for this purpose. - This store has made it possible for everyone to view this great phenomena. A big express shipment of especially prepared solar glasses for watching the eclipse has just been received. They are known as "Sawtelle's Eclipse Glass" and retail for only 10 cents each. "Sawtelle's Eclipse Glasses" will be sold on the street by Boys Friday and Saturday or may be secured by calling at this store. Don't risk impairing your eyesight, and make sure of see ing the eclipse of the sun, by getting one of these protectors before they are all sold. R. M. SA WTELLE Jeweler. a. BmtmimiHtwwHiiinnHUH!
