Canned Salmon Rejected
Details of rejections by the
army of the entiro canned sal
mon pack of 1918 and its resale
to packers at cost, less certain
refunds, were learned Saturday.
The situation disclosed is that
1,T78,000 cases, approximately
5, 000, GOD cans, wora rejected as
having failed to attain govern
mont standard and. are now
being marketed by packers.
On July 26, thoro had been re
turned to packers or shippod
upon tl oir orders 540,003 cases.
Befoco resale by packers to
wholesalers, it is stated that
. the goods aro cxaminod bv food
inspectors at points of delivery,
but what proportion is being
passed as tit for consumption
cannot bo ascertained. Thogov1
ernment standard is that from
' selected sum of staples not over
5 per cent of canB may bo bad.
Officials of army purchase divi
sion explain that probably large
porportion of pack is good, but
they could not afford to take
chances on it.
In February and March; it is
Btutcdjicomplaints began coming
from army camps that the sal
mon was bad. Thereupon sam
ples were ordered sont to Wash
ington. Brands of over Bovonty
different packers wore examin
ed and a large majority wcro
found to contain over 5 per cent
of bad salmon. Somo brands
vran under this proportion, but
' it was Impossible to detect bad
cans without opening, because
when salmon is packed after
spoiling, go6d and bad havo the
same outward appearances.
Confcronco of packers was
then called. In May representa
tives of Pacific Coast Packers
Association and of smaller pack
ers mot army purchasing oDicials
and were asked for an explana
tion. The theory advanced by
largo Alaskan packers was that
tho oxtromo hot weather caused
fish to spoil when on tho way to
tho canneries. Smaller packers
aro represented to havo said sinco
arrangements were being mndo
to roturn tho goods back thoy
should como into it, too. Ex.

Worry Didn't Help
I had a little field of wheat,
fivo acres and a third; through
winter storms and springtime
heat my vigils wero absurd. I
thought tho climate should be
run with my small field in view,
with jusl enough of wind and
sun, and timely rain and dew.
In other fields of great extent
the wheat of neighbors waved:
I didn't worry worth n cent if
they wero lost or Bnvcd. Tho
only wheat in all the land for
which I cared a whoop was that.
by idle zephyrs fanned, beforo
my humble coop. I trembled
when tho sky was bright, for
fear a drouth would come: and
clouds would fill mo with off
right, lest wild tornadoes hum.
I kicked if there was too much
rain, and jawed tho brood inir
sky; and I would grumble and
complain if days were hot and
dry. I ragged tho wind in heat
cd terms when it enmo from tho
west; I creamed of bugs and
army worms, and overy other
pest. My wheat is harvested nt
last, it lived thru rust and
blight, survived the torrent and
the blast, and filled my bin
all right. And I'd havo had as
big n crop if I had let things
slide, if I had raised no yelping
ynmp nnd had not wept or sighed.
I worried o'er thnt field so much
I aged a hundred jsnrs, nnd
now I hobblo on n crutch, nnd
sec how vain woro fears. Walt

spending some months in tho oil
regions at uanger and other
points in lexas, is in bt. Johns
on a two wcok's business trip,
after which ho will return to
the new oil regions, ile brings
glowing reports of tho fortunes
being made almost over night in
and around Ranger, which he
said two years apo was a village
of 150 people and now has a
population of fifteen thousand.
So enthusiastic is Mr. Gillmoro
over prospects thero that he has
made soverai investments in
oil land, which he expects to
rapidly increase in value. In
fact, he stated that he was offer
ed double what ho had paid for
one tract. Mr. Gillmoro has
several interesting samples of
oil taken from his brother-in-
law's field, which shows tho oil
SB it comes from the ground.
This well ig expected to produce
from 5U0U to wuu barrels per
day. Any one interested in
hearing about the new oil fields

An island of gold, in compari

is an old miner and knows val

He had heard the Indian tradi

The Perversity of Man
"Why folks don't leave the
city and move out intothe
country," seems to be a ques
tion that is engaging the minds
of mnny political and economic
philosophers. The answer is
easy. Wages are too high
Where, in the city? No, in the
country. When tho government
takes its ortmcuu price away
from wheat and it drops to six
bits a bushel,' then wheat fields
will be full of men working 16
hours a day for a dollar. When
form hands get $30 a month on
tho farm they will leave the
city for the farm job. Man is
naturally a perverse cuss nnd he
is iroing to do' just what he
shouldn't do. He won't herd
rheep at $75 a month, but he
will for $30. He won't sotn hen
when eggs aro worth four bits
a dozen, hut ho will Bit up all
night nursing a sick hon when
eggs aro selling for eight cents
and ho will milk cows from
morning till night when butter
is worth 35c a pound. Do you
think he will split wood for $3
a cord. is too much money;
ho would ruthemvult and next
your work at it for a dolhr
a cord.and so there is no use to
talk about coming back to the
farm now for the wages on a

Will Sell Tomatoes
Tho first step taken by the
city of Portland to combat the
high cost of living was tho
placing of an order for two car
load of cured bacon and one car
load of 2 1 2s solid pack toma
toes, which will be offered for
sole at coat plus freight charges.
The bacon will no shipped from
PnniD Lewis nnd it is probable
thntrnt least one carload of the
popular breakfast meat will
reach the city by the end of the
week. The shipment of tomatoes
will como from l'ort fllnson,
Cttl., and will not reach Portland
until about August 15. Author
ization of the purchase of the
food Btull'B was given by the
city council Tuesduy to City
Commissioner Pier at a spe
cial meeting called by Mayor
linker. Not only has Cnmmls
sioner Peir been "investod with
power to make the purchases
mentioned, but ho also may
continuo to purchase food stulf
from the government' as long
as. the supply and demnnd exist.
The bacon which tho city will
purchase is of good grade,
which City Purchasing Agent
Mcintosh says sells at whole
sale for 12 cunts a pound and
rotnils to tho consumer at prices
between GO cents nnd 55 cents a
pound. Tho city will procure
this -bacon for III cents per
pound plus freight charges,
which will bring tho coHt of the
bacon to tho buyers at about
Hi 1 2 cents per pound. The
cnrload of tomatoes will contain
Hti.OOO cans, for which the clt
will pay llii cents per can phis
freight charges, bringing the
approximate cost to the consum
or to Mi cents per can. Tho
same grade of tomatoes retail at
prices between 20 and 2G cents
tier can, according to Mr. Mc
lntosh. Final arrangements for
tho handling of tho foodstulfs
has not yet been determined by
Commissioner Pier. Simon Mro
titers, operating a storo nt First,
Second and Alder streets, havo
offered to handle tho foodstulfs
for tho city without cost. Wrap
ping paper, string, cost of
wages for employes and other
incidental costs will not bo as
sessed either against tho city
proper or added to tho cost of
tho foodstulfs. Julius L. Meier,
general manugor of Molnr
Ironk company, hns offered to
to sell tho city-bouirht goods on
co8t-nlus scale. "This purchase
of fooditull's," said Commission
er Pier, will give tho pooplo of

best and most conservative
citizens of St. Johns who have
investigated the Company and
subscribed for tho stock. It is a
well known fact that Building
and Loan Companies aro tho
greatest cooperative money mak
ers for their investors for tho
reason that they deal in nothing
