So say the dealers. Hut seriously,
how Ions will a ocld storage turney
Does the quality of an Oregon
urkey Impiovo by reason of ihe fact
that it was killed prior to Thanks
giving day, shipped to San Francls
?o, sent back to Portland for the
Christmas t-ade, and then held over
to Ne v Yei-r's dav?
Is an Oklahoma or Nebraska tur
key killed perhaps a month ago and
shipped on Ice half wny across the
continent, just what tho t average
Port laud consumer wants at tho Now
There is no use "taking thought
on what ye shall eat" at the coming
holiday. That little problem has
been most happily solved by the
market men. All the consumer need
do is wince nnd pay the price.
If he elcr-ls turkey. It will bo a
storage bird: if ho calls for a goose
it will be taken off the Ice for him;
if ho decides on a duck for the New
Year's dint.er ho will likewise get
the ''cured" article.
And the price that will In all
probability be In line wilh the good
things that wero In demand at
Thanksgiving time nnd Christmas.
Tho cost, as at the other holidays, is
likely to be 20 to 40 per cent higher
than In previous yearn.
And In rase a turkey cannot be
bo embalnird with Ice as to bo In
definitely kfpt fresh and young, what
is to be done with it when tho pros
pective l)upp turns nwav in disgust?

So Sayo Supremo Court Justice Wes
Troy, N. Y., Dec. 29. -"Tho age of
patriotism has yielded to the age of
commercialism. Uppermost In the
humnn mind today is not the stars
and stripes, but the dollar mark."
Such was tho declaration of Su
orome Court Justice Wesley O. Ilow
ircl, In an opinion today reducing the
compensation of members of a com
mission nppolnted to apprnlBe dama
ges to property resulting from tho
construction of the AHhokan reservoir
In Ulsor county, which is to furnish a
water supply fpr New York city.
"While the commission furnlBhes
avonues for the reckless escape of
ninny dollars, there are other chan
nels of leakage and waBto fully as ap
nalllng," Bald Justice Howard.
"It Is greatly to be regrottod that
no public enterprise can be projected
and consummated without this ap
nailing loss, called 'grart.' Graft, in
not necessarily an Illegal expenditure
f money, but it Is that unnecessary
wasteful use that characterizes the
construction of every public venture.
At least 40 per cent of all money ap
propriated for public use Is lost in
irraft. All things could be posslblo if
tills frightful leak could bo stopped
ronds, canals, libraries, asylums and
"Graft Is ns much nn element to bo
eckoned with In computing the cost
of a public structure as Ib cement or
Inbor. It haB come to bo a matter of
course this rake-otf a loss recog
nized by all who make ostlmntes of

built honestly would bo a freak."

Boston, Dec. 29. Durlne Christ
mas, week most severe storms raged
along the Now Bnglnnd and Cana
dian coast nnu' a great dor.l of ship
ping was wracked both in the har
bors and at sou. Krom advices re
ceived from Nova Scotia and New
foundland the gnlo that raged nkngr
tho coast on Christmas day reach
ed tho proportions of a hurricane.
As the storm subsided the vosaele
that had stood off the const during:
tho galo began to arrive In port, but
at this t!rae there are more than ut
dozen craft that are unaccounted for,,
and it Is feared that they are loat
Bovernl vcbbgIb foundered off the
New lOnglaud coast while the storm
was at lis holght, and the crews wore
lost with thorn. From the data ob
tainable it Is estimated that between
forty and fifty sailors were drowned
during the storm period, and the to
tal number who went down with the
foundored veBsels may possibly ex
ceed this estimate. During tho pro
gress of the gale a tldnl wave swept
Into Rnston and destroyed a million
dollars' worth of pro port y In a few
minutes of time. The wave reach
ed a height of fifteen feet.
