YOU men get to putting reliance into good stock.
Ever since you learned of the rich tobacco of
which W-B CUT Chewing is made, there has
been a big and increasing demand (or it. The idea of
shredding the leaf, so that you can get at the tobacco
satisfaction without so much grinding and spitting, has
made a winning with men also. The little chew that
lasts tnd satis6es is the thing.

the rose festival. When a merchant in this town
holds a flower show or installs an orchestra in his
store for the purpose of drawing1 trade, he pays
for the advertising. He wouldn't have the gall
i to ask us to do it for nothiner. But Portland is
different and there is some reason for it. The
state outside has been "worked" by Portland
interests for so long that it is now force of habit
to throw out bait to the suckers. When Oregon
wakes up and learns that there is something to it
besides Portland, it will commence to grow fat
Simon Benson has begun a suit for libel against
a contributor to the Lebanon Criterion who made
certain charges against him which Mr. Benson
says isn't true. The Criterion, an innocent party,
was included as a defendant. If the case ever
comes to trial, it may be of unusual interest. In

the proposed bond issue when Mr. Benson went

The government may have to regulate the price

destroy thousands of tons of food to maintain
prices, something more stronger than regulation
is needed for them.
