OREGON WEATHER Generally fair, light easterly A wtnria 4 THE REASON THEY RAN It develops that the reason the British bad to give up Baku, the an cient petroleum center east of thi Caspian sea, was that their Armen ian allies failed to . support them against a Turkish attack. It would be a good deal easier for everybody to help the persecuted Armenians if they'd stand up like men and help themselves a little, yet we must not expect too much from the Armenians, for the reason that their spirit b?s been broken. They have been whip ped so often that they don't expect to win. How different from the Amer ican Indians. One time an old Co manche 'chief said the reason bis tribe never "licked" their boys was because they were afraid of breaking their spirit; their spirit once broken they would be cowards in battle. Portland has boasted of the mil lions on deposit in her great banks; she has boasted of not having enough houses to Bhelter her immense din ner-bucket brigades; of having tak en thousands of men from the inter ior towns to help in her war indus tries, and stateg that never in her history was business as good as it is at present yet despite all this she could not raise her quota of the Fourth Liberty loan on schedule time. Poor Portland, she has the money, but hesitates to invest it in Liberty bonds. It seems that Brisbane the Mighty sold bis honor for a case ot beer. At least the brewers put up the money for him to buy the Wash ington newspaper, and in return he was to boost the beer Industry. It was a cinch for Brisbane for he al ready favored the German brewers. Once Hearst's $50,000 per year edi tor and one of the brightest editorial writers in America, Brisbane Is now a common Hun beer booster. "Only Foch knows when the allies will strike the decisive blow," says a Paris dispatch. It is possible that Foch know just when the decisive blow will be struck. With Bulgaria and Turkey out of the game and Austria clamoring for peace, possib ly Foch has lifted the corner ot the veil and beheld the great coming event that will end Prusslanls'm. It was quite superfluous for Aus-trla-iHungary to specify that her pro posed Informal peace conference would be "non-binding." Any agree ment made by either ot the central powers, whether formal or informal, will be non-binding, so tar as they're concerned FOR $1.00 20 Pounds Sweet Potatoes KINNEY & TRUAX GROCERY QUALITY FIRST The Belgians and Serbians are proving their mettl; are proving that they hold honor above a mess ot pottage, and that they are among the best fighters on the globe. The survivors of these two pluckly little countries will be held In the great est respect for aeons. What tine news: A dispatch says the Americans are in a heavy battle and are killing large numbers ot the Huns fairly mowing them down. Fine, there will be Just that many less outrages committed. A dispatch says "20,000 new cases of lntluenta reported in army camps." What's the matter with that new government serum? The Spaniard may not be a hard fighter, but Spanish Influenza is a sticker. "Americans advanced in the teeth of a terrltic, murderous fire," says the news from the front. Certainly they did; no one expected them to retreat not even the Germans in the front ranks. LELAND .J Mr. and Mrs. Robert God and baby, Miss Eva Bergland, Mrs. E. L. Ellis and Charlie Ellis had a very narrow escape last Thursday even-1 ing when the Ellis car, driven by Charlie Ellis for some unknown rea son failed to make the turn In front of the Mackln building in Leland,! and went over an embankment, down Into the lower road and turned around heading into the ank and stopped right side up, with its occu pants all still in the car, unhurt, with the exception of a few bruises and a bad shaking up.
