Say, there was something to that little re mark that made us think and we finally thought we'd put it in print so if we have any financial slackers here, it would get to them and maybe wcrk in under their hides.

It is only a question of time when all papers will be compelled to again increase their subscription price if paper continues to increase in price. It is a qnestion of remaining in business or suspend ing publication. If you are in ar rears it will be a great favor to the publisher if you call at the office and pay up. It will also insure against the loss of the local paper by suspension. The Soldier's Chances. Great as the danger and large as the losses in the aggregate, the indi vidual soldier has plenty of chances of coming cut of the war unscathed, or at least not badly injured. Based on the mortality statistics of the allied armies, a soldier's chances are as follows: Twenty-nine chances of coming home to one chance of being killed. Forty-nine chances of recovering frcm wounds to one chance of dying from them. One chance in 60 of losing a limb. Will live five years longer because of physical training, is freer from dis ease in the army than in civil life, and has better medical care at the front than at home. In other wars from 10 to 15 men died from disease to one from bullets; in this war one man dies from disease to every 10 from bullets. For most of our fighting men who do not escape scatheless, the govern ment under the soldier and sailor in surance laws gives protection to the wounded and their dependents and to the families and dependents of those who make the supreme sacrifice for their country. - - .

Hi I WW 0Mpmmm i LLtLLLIlJiJUU The FOUR-WALLED RECTANGULAR IMPLEMENT SHED Finished with Whits Pine Barn Boards and Battens Putting Farming-On a War Basis FEW of us realize the importance of good farm buildings to farm production to bigger crops and more pork and eggs and milk. Yet we all realize the necessity of increasing produc tion to the very limit in order that the war may be brought to a more rapid and a successful conclusion. A good barn properly ventilated and insulated saves feed. Feed which might otherwise go to produce animal heat goes to produce beef and milk. Hog houses can be so designed and constructed as to make it possible to get two litters a year instead of one and bigger, more healthy pigs. Implement sheds are war measures because they conserve the nation's steel they prolong the life of farm machinery and by keeping the N parts from rusting and weathering, they eliminate breakage and save the time spent in repair for productive tasks. Poultry houses can be so built as to double the production of eggs on a farm. And poultry raising is war work because it turns the waste materials of the farm into foodstuffs. And with every thought of grain crops comes the consideration of proper and safe grain storage buildings. Lumber is not high in comparison wilh other things. A 250-pound hog or a bushel of wheat buys nearly twice as much lumber as it did three years ago. Lumbcrpriccs later on may find their level with other commodities. Plan your buildings now. And see our plans for farm buildings cf various types. White Pine is the most economical of all woods for the outside of farm buildings. It always stays where you put it and holds tight joints. No warping or splitting or rotting and the easiest wood of all to work. . Put your farm on a business as well as a war basis by building now. Let us help you. v BELDING LUMMRie.

Thieves evidently planned on enter ing the home of Mr. and Mrs. II. J. Leonard last Thursday night and but for the family watchdog and Night watchman McPherson might have suc ceeded. The officer heard the Leon ard dog making considerable noise and on going to the place saw a man or men run around the corner of the house and down Congress street to the west. The Leonard family heard noises and upon investigating found men trying to get into the house by prying up the window. They had cradled up on top of the woodshed and were attempting to gain entrance through a window when discovered and chased away.
