Your Liberty bond quota in the pres
ent campaign is two per cent of your
net worth. If your quota should be S100,
your net worth is estimated at $5,000.
If you should have to borrow the money
to buy that bond, and pay eight per cent
interest for it, the interest you would
pay during the year would amount to
13 .75 more than the interest you would
receive from your bond. You arc thus
giving $3.75 to your country to help
make America safe for yourself and for
your children. You have made your
$5,000, or your $50,000, as the case may
be, tin der the protection of the Stars and
Stripes, and with opportunities which no
other nation on the face of the earth
offers. If you are compelled to borrow
money for a year to buy your bonds, you
are paying out, for the perpetuation of
America's free institutions and to uphold
right against the the
sum of $3.75 for each $5.000 that you are
worth. Isn't it worth it?—Palouse Re
m m is;
Every available acre in the Palouse
country should be planted to wheat, oats,
barley, peas or beans for 1919. All the
land that can be plowed and planted to
wheat this fall should be planted to good
varieties of wheat. The law of averages
almost insures a bumper crop next year
and we are told that food stuffs will be
needed by a starving world more next
year than ever before and that for 10
years after the war closes the United
States will have to use every available
acre to feed the world. It is "almost a
cinch" that the Palouse country, which
has yielded the two poorest crops in its
history the past two years, will redeem
itself by giving one of the best crops it
has ever produced in 1919. Let us plant
every acre and trust to providence to
give us a bountiful harvest.
Many schools are taxing their capacity
to take more students for army training
than they can properly care for. Presi
dent Lindley is very wisely trying to
limit the number who come to the Uni
versity of Idaho, preferring to have 500
who can be properly cared for and given
the proper training, than to have 1,000
half trained and half cared for. The
University of Idaho has won an enviable
reputation with the war department with
its first two contingents, because the
cilities of the school were not Jvertaxed.
} * <*.
Latah county is doing its bit in pro
ducing food for the armies. The humble
bean is one of the most dependable army
foods ever known and this county
probably producing more beans this year
than any county in the state . The French
use peas to a great extent for food and
Latah county produced tens of thousands
of bushels of peas this year. But the
yield of these and other grains should
be doubled next year when a favorable
season is almost assured.
Portland (Oregon) women have boy
cotted the kid glove. Not that they
"have it in for" the glove, hut lire nation
needs all the leather it can get for war
purposes and patriotic Portland women
have announced that they will not wear
kid gloves until the war ends. Any
woman seen in Portland with kid gloves
is denounced as a slacker. 1 his is one
way to help effectually.
Moscow people would resent the state
ment that Palouse is a better town than
Moscow : yet Palouse has her fourth
Liberty loan quota raised and Moscow
has about 30 per cent of her quota sub
scribed. The Bible says : "By their
works shall ye know them."

IMENCE Of THE
DEARY CITIZEN TELLS EDITOR
OF LOCAL PAPER SOME
O' - the signature "A Reader" the
Latah County Press, one of the county's
brightest newspapers, containing the fol
lowing communication which is so full
of good, sound sense tha it is repub
lished with the hope that those who are
so prone to criticise newspapers may
read and profit by it. The article fol
"To the Editor:
"May I speak through your columns
in the expression of a few opinions con
cerning the modern newspapers ? I fear
that in the past I, as well as others, have
not sufficiently appreciated the value of
the newspaper—one of the most wonder
ful of modern inventions.
"As an illustration of the development
of the printing business, it has been esti
mated that if Benjamin Franklin should
step up and take charge of the 'Saturday
Evening Post,' as it is now, bringing his
facilities with him, it would take him
nineteen years to print a single weekly
"There would certainly be a lonesome
and dissatisfied lot of people in this
country if all the newspapers were dis
continued a few weeks for some reason.
I cannot think of a class of people, nor
of indtvidauls of my acquaintance, who
do not need the newspapers. There is
hardly a person in the country, who can
read, who does not read the newspaper
these days and feel that it is almost in
"A few among the religious class have
in times past criticised the newspapers
quite severely. However, even they are
coming more and more to realize that
the newspaper is an important help in
Bible study. How can that be? Because
it records the many events of this time
which the Bible writers predicted thou
sands of years ago. Careful Bible stu
dents can hardly read a single copy of
any live paper now without reading of
happenings that are in direct fulfillment
of Bible prophecies.
"Those who fee! like criticising the
modern newspaper should perhaps rea
lize that they are partly to blame for
the publication of so many features
which they consider objectionable. There
is probably nothing the average editor
desires more than to publish the things
which will be interesting and uplifting to
the readers of his paper ; but if his read
ers demand 'blood and thunder stories,'
and all the details of every crime, and
of every demoralizing occurrance. the
editor must not be blamed too much for
publishing that class of reading,
more good people would express to edi
tors and publishers their appreciation of
the good and uplifting articles which ap
pear in their papers, the editor would
doubtless find more room for such arti
cles and less for the other kind.
"Rut on the other hand, we should not
lay all the blame on the editors and pub
lishers if we waste our time reading
things which are of no value to us. The
entire paper was not prepared for our
special benefit: and we arc expected to
use our own wisdom and judgment in
reading only those things which we find
helpful to us. It is the aim of the editors
and publishers to print such a variety of
matter in every paper that every reader
will find something which more than
repays and the time spent in reading it.
"In this day when 'of the making of
hooks there is no end' and when there
are more than 24,000 periodicals publish
ed in this country, a knowledge of what
to read and how to road it is of great
value. Let us train ourselves in the
choice of our reading, instead of trying
to get the editors to publish only that
of which we approve.
