A (iood IMaee to Live
Not only has tho country adjacent to On-
iri become famous as a producer of ag
ricultural wealth, but it is fast gaining an
unviable reputation through its large ship-
lents of livestock to Eastern and South-
'csiorn markets. During the past two
reeks the Oregon Short Line railroad re
vived for shipment to Los Angeles, two
MK load of hogs; to Michigan, a car of hor
ses; to East St Louis, one car of horses,
ind to Boston, one ear of wool.
Many of the prominent farmers of the
narounding country came hers with much
ncperienc but very .little capital. They
settled in ih.' Snake River section because
f the many advantages it offered, and
dnVh were not found in other portions of
the west through which they have passed.
rhile an ideal climate, which cures many
tilments and produces none, influenced
them to a certain extent, in their choice of
this country .1 their future home, there-
turns which nature offered those who wou
ld assist her perform her function were so
rich that the pioneers took advantage of
the opportunity and became identified with
the successful toilers of the soil, and today
the casual observer is presented with a pic
ture of a beautiful land dotted, as far as
the eye can see, with pretty homes of
the ranchers, yellow, mellow grain bowing
in humble submission to the caresses of
the BUn or whisnerinff to the irontle breeze.

trees groaning under their burden of del
icious frui, horses, cattle and sheep grazing
contentedly in pasture, while the happy,
jolly farmer, after the days work is o'er, re
clines under shade tree, and offers a prayer
of gratitude to the kind providence that
guided him across the desolate plains to this
vertible "Garden of Eden."
But what has been accomplished by
one can be accompliseed by an
other. The country needs more people.
Today the possibilities are just as great as
they were in past years in fact, are great
er. Not many years ago, there were no
railroads in this country, and as there was
little profit in teaming produce to the then
far away markets, the average farmer rai
sed only enough for family consumption.
Farming implements were very expensive,
on account of their having to be shipped
from a far distant point, and the rancher
was forced to adopt crude methods in farm
work. Today we have rapid transportation
facilities to large markets; towns (in close
proximity to ranches) in which are found
up-to-date mercantile establishments that
carry a stock of agriculturtl implements
of every description, and which also offer
the farmer the best prevailing prices for his
Home8eekers who are seeking a place in
which they may enjoy all comforts of life,
there is no richer section to which he may be
invited to visit than this garden spot of the
northwest. Here he mav worshin as his
couscience dictates; his children are afford
ed excellent educational advantages; a leg
ion of citizens whose acquaintance he will
feel honored in cultivating will extend to
him the hand of warm friendship; and in
time to come, through good, sound manage
ment he will accumulate manvearthlv poss
In our seheme just at the time when extra
money is most needed, when the breadwin
ner or housemother is unable to work, then
the doctor bill piles up. It's hard on the
family and harder still, pretty often, on
the doctor, who has to wait long fo'r his
pay. Also, one imagines the Chinese doc
tor probably keeps a pretty close eye on his
patients and does what he can with orient
al methods in the way of prevention.
A plan which combines the good features
of both methods is being talked about of
late. It is for everyone to undergo the per
iodical health examination. There is no
question of the fact that many fatal diseas
es and degenerations could be checked or
cured if taken in time. Having a thor
ough physical examination every three
months would save many a serious illness.
The death rate, particularly for children.
has been going down for several years, but
that for people in middle life is going up.
Much of this is due to the slow growth of
of deseases which are not realized by those
who have them until they reach a point
where they can no longer be helped.
It is an excellent plan for every family to
have the physician call once a month, look
over me peouie ana me nouse ana give
whatever advice seems wise in retrard to
health and hygiene. Prevention is always
better than cure, as well as cheaper. This
plan gives the physician a small but reliable
income, and provides the family with best
of all kinds of health insurance.
Money, Labor and Prosperity
000,000 more fW8'e than they needed for
their legal reserve. The English pound
sterling, heretofore the world's standard,
Was the greatest discount in history of the
two countries. Every American dollar was
worth $1.02 of British money, $1.05 of
French or Italian money and more yet of
German money. All the foreign powers
faced the necessity of raising big loans to
to help their credit, of shipping great vol
umes of gold-which we don't need at all.
The labor situation is not yet anywhere
near so favorable as the money situation.
But at present, the outlook is unexpectedly
good. The entrance of Italv into the war
means that in all probability, hundreds of
thousands of Italian reservists will return
to Italy. That will greatly lower the mar
gin of unemployment, which is already rap
idly dimishing. If any of the Balkan states
follow Italy's example, as two or three of
them may, there will be a further diminu
tion of our surplus of labor supply.
The result may be unfortunate from the
viewpoint of many manufactures we may
not have left enough labor to supply the
growing demand as our industries revive.
But a shortage of labor is, in any case, pre
ferable to a surplus so far as the general
public is concerned. It means that the
country no longer has to carry the dead
weight of the non-producing consumers.
It means good wages, greater spending
power, a speeding up of the whole economic
machine it spells prosperity.

The Quarterly Doctor
The Chinese pay a doctor by the year to
keep them well. If thev fall ill, the doctors
salary from that family stops until health
returns. Americans do the exact opposite.
Surely the Chinese plan is more logical.
. There are two things which, more than
anything else, mean prosperity. They are
plenty of money and the full employment
of labor. The outlook in both of these res
pects is surprisingly good.
The increasing financial soundness of the
country during the last few months
has become a commonplace, but it is not
generally recognized how strong our posi
tion really is. Last week in New York a
