WE ARE BENEFICIARIES,
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.
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
The "war burden in this
section is a myth. We are so
far the beneficiaries, not the
victims of this war.

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

Good Quality Hay
A Scarce Article in
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

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. -
