ONE OF THE SERIOUS PROBLEMS.
Barren , wastes or dumping
grounds for noxious refuse have
become well . tilled, agreeable
potato patches or gardens.
These are cared for in : many
cases by women and children, or
some kinds of cripples, and the
produce is nearly clear gain.
-There is a great amount in the
aggregate of these vacant and
unused spaces in Portland, and
while poor people needing this
sort of help are not numerons
here it would be well if many of
these vacant lots, in too
many . " cases covered - with
weeds or rubbish, were
converted into little potato farms
or gardens. - 1
The high price of food is now,
and has been for some time past,
one of the most serious problems
with which the people of the
nation have to deal.
So marked has been the rise
in the price of food during the
tiaat lew yeaio uiab mc wscivo-
tion of the Washington Post, "A
dollar today in Center market
will not buy as much -for the
table as 50 cents would a few
years ago," is not overdrawn.
The advance in the price of
food is appalling when consider
ed in connection with the price
The price of meat has advan
ced until now it has reached a
figure which is almost prohibitive.-
With the poorer people
meat is a luxury which can be
indulged in only on especial,
occasions and then only the
1 - ? i, i
cneaper ana lnierior cuts can De
purchased. -v.-,;. 7.
Compare with the price of
food, , which is . the : only real
standard, the price of labor in
this country, was never lower
than it is today. There, never
was a time when the laboring
man could buy less for his
money than now, because the
prices of the necessaries of life
have increased in a proportion
greatly in excess of the price
of labor. - --
One of the chief benefits which
the United States has heretofore
offered was the abundance of
: foodstuffs produced, and hence
the low price in the market, -and.
this more than any other one
thing, perhaps, 5 established the
high standard of living main
tained by American workingmen.
With the price of foodstuffs ad-
.Vancing beyond f the reach"" of
labor, the standard must soon
fall to a level f with that of
Europe, ' " -;.

growing counties of Oregon is
seemingly - indicated by the re
ports of orchard plantings that
are taking place in that section.
Apples, prunes and peaches are
the favorite fruits that will be
produced. These orchards will
be centered about the town of
Corvallis, a name which, literally
interpreted, means "The Heart
of the (Willamette) Valley." It
is reported that 800 acres of com
mercial apples will be growing
in Benton county at the end year.
The acreage will be largely add

Alley brings a full complement
