ALBANY, Or., Slay SO. (Special.) Members of the Knights of'Pythias in Oregon are planning a campaign to liave the session of the Supreme Lodge meet in Portland in 1916. At a con ference between Frank' S. Grant, of Portland, grand chancellor of Oregon; Louis R. Stinson, of Salem, grand keep er of records and seal, and L. M. Curl, of Albany, chairman of the committee named by the Oregon Grand Lodge to extend the invitation, a letter of invi tation was drafted. It was sent out today to every Grand Lodge of the or der in the world. The meeting place for 1916 will be chosen at the next biennial session of the Supreme Lodge, which will be held in August of this year at Winnipeg, Manitoba. A formal invitation to come to Portland will be extended at the ses sion by the two Oregon representatives. Jt is probable several prominent mem bers of the order in Oregon will ac company the two representatives to Winnipeg to boost for the selection of Portland. Many Delegates Would Come. This convention, if procured, would bring to Portland delegates from every state in the Union and from every province in Canada and also delegates from the Hawaiian Islands, Australia, New Zealand. Cuba and Porto Rico. That Portland has an excellent chance to procure the meeting is believed by L. R. Stinson, of Salem, who was Ore gon's representative at the recent cele bration of the Golden Jubilee of the or der in Washington. D. C. Mr. Stinson talked Portland industriously to the representatives of all the states and countries there and received many as surances of support for Portland at the coming session of the Supreme Loage Because of Portland's growing fame and because of the fact that people are anxious to visit the Pacific Coast, it is considered that Portland will have lit tle trouble in obtaining the session. Oregon Attracts Attention. Oregon attracted a great deal of at tention at the recent Golden Jubilee. Equipped wi':h a supply of apples from Hood River and Medford, which were specially prepared in wrappers bearing irreetings to the representatives from other states, and with other means of attracting attention. Mr. Stinson sue ceeded in Dlacing Oregon "on the map" at that gathering. Oregon received more attention in the Washington pa tiers than all other states represented Bt the Golden Jubilee combined, due to Mr. Stinson's unceasing activity. The project to procure the Supreme Lodge for Portland in 1916 has been under consideration for some time. At the last session the Oregon delegates served notice that Portland would ask tor the convention and efforts have been continued to keep Portland prom inently before Supreme Lodge officers and delegates. At the last session of the Grand Lodge of Oregon in Portland last Octo ber a committee was named to extend an invitation to the Supreme Lodge to come to Portland and to make all plans. The committee has been actively at work on the matter. L. M. Curl, of Albany, is chairman. 1 " ' i k ! i - HAREM BEAUTIES" VEILED WITH LACK Cl'RTAISS) J. 1'. MEAGHER. LEADING PARADE.

One boy was shot to the stage from the balcony clinging with his teeth to a strap attached to a pulley on wire.

The work in beinir handled from two camps, or sranized in three small crews in each t-H rrm. Kach of the small crews consists of 15 nlanters. a waterboy, flagman and Btrawboss. In the morning each planter takes about 1100 of the seedling trees in a bag strapped to his side.

The three crews from camp make i line about 400 feet long, . which ad vances over the country, climbing mountains, crawling through windfalls and crossing streams.

Welles Advises Movement for Rural Districts Where Good Roads Help Solve ProMem of Transportation. WAR TAXES RAISE CASH Revenue Dodgers Fear Penalties Imposed1 ov Latest Measure. LONDON. May 30 The financial authorities of the Imperial Government are more than satisfied with the re sults of the assessment of the new war taxes. Instead of the $24,000,000 that the new legislation was designed to raise, it is now evident that the total amount will be at least $50,000,000 greater. This result is attributed in large part to the fact that the new laws threat ened extremely severe sentences against tax-dogers and at the same time guar anteed tax-payers, who now give true returns, against prosecution for past under-assessments.

SALEM, Or., May 30. (Special.) Arguing for the consolidation oi schools where conditions warranted such action, Frank K. Welles, Assistant State Superintendent of Public Instruc tion, made one of the most Important addresses upon a subject relating to education at the uommonwenuu .i- ference Friday at the university Oregon. Calling attention. 10 a 'a- passed 10 years ago wuitu v for consolidation of rural schools, Mr. Welles said: arhnnl districts have usuany oeeu .oKio tn .tract consolidations because r.t oontiment which rebels against i rt the 'little red school house,' because of its associate.., "j cause of Jealousies in neighborhoods which prevent co-operation, the gen- i v.n.r that land values decrease the distance to scnooi racreTO . worry ana inconvenient transporting the children, the cost of the buildings and a belief in many ..inm that the country schools are srood enough as they are. riTi apcniinr or inese t c ow tinued Mr. Wells, "the proposal to lorm a consolidated school district usually meets very determined opposition. The State Superintendent of Utah reports an instance of successful consolidation. on nor pent or tne people wm opposed to the plan when it was first proposed, though fully 90 per cent are now well satisnea wuu .

MARY'S LEG IS PIPE STEM Small Girl lias Fire and Police De partments Called Out. NEW YORK, May 26. Mary Schwartz, 3 years old, chubby and blonde, disturbed the peace of Harri son, N. J, by causing the fire and po lice departments to turn out and a sec tion of a perfectly new concrete pave ment to be ripped up. Mary is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Schwartz, of 231 Harrison street- She was playing in front of her father's shop, when she saw the end of a vent pipe sticking through the sidewalk alongside the house. Mary had screwed the top off. She tried to investigate the Interior of the pipe and, finding that her little arm was too short to reach anything, she pushed her fat lit tle right leg down the vacancy and then trouble began. Mary tried to withdraw her leg. It would not come out. Mary found that she was in the terrible position of hav ing one foot in the grave and promptly began to yell. Passersby stopped and tried to pull her out, but the leg had swollen and they 'could not budge her. Her parents rushed out of the shop and took their turn; still no result, ex cept that Mary howled a little louder. Then some genius rang for the fire de partment. The police heard about the excitement and they came on the scene. Everyone took a turn at trying to get her out and as each one tried the others stood manfully by and gave good ad vice. . The physical" efforts were as fruitless as the advice; still Mary stuck and still she yelled. In despair, a contractor was tele phoned to and a few minutes later he arrived with six men. He took one look and then put his men to work. The new concrete walk was ripped up and then as they started to remove the 10-foot length of pipe, a plumber happened along. He took the situation in and, after proving to his satisfaction and Mary s distress that she was stucK harder than ever, he took a steel saw and cut the pipe off below her little foot. Mary and her section of pipe were re moved to her home and the family doc tor, with the assistance of Ice water and grease, finally divorced her from the riipe. Mary was more frightened than hurt' Her leg is only slightly bruised and the final act of her har rowing experience was the deal her father made with the contractor to have the sidewalk repaired.

Health Depends on Kidneys -Whole System Suffers if They Are De ranged. Health is an absolute impossibility when the kidneys ape out of order. The explanation is simple. .Life cannot be lived without waste. The blood sweeps through arteries and veins supplying vitality to every organ and part, gath ers up the waste matter and carries it to the kidneys. The kidney- are a fil ter and it is their office to strain from the blood all the poisonous deposits and to pass them on to the bladder for ex pulsion. When any part of the kidneys is inflamed, the purifying is less per fectly done. The kidneys and veins are clogged with poisonous matter.
