THE TRAVELERS' LUNCHEON
Among the other economy meas
ures planned in connection with the
war, Is the proposal that dining cars
be left oft railroad trains. It is
planned to reduce pas3enger trains
as much as possible so as not to in
terfere with freight traffic.
To traveling people, who are used
to certain regulation comforts, this

In a leisurely fashion In a dining
car while the country goes whirling
by. But people with simple tastes
will not suffer greatly If they have
aubstantlal box lunches.
A few years ago It was considered
bad form and a stingy economy to
eat a picnic lunch on a train. The
high cost of restaurant service has
changed that feeling. Maintaining a
dining room on the railroad train Is
a costly and luxurious plan, and trav
elers have to pay well fop the privil
ege, as well as rewarding the waiters
handsomely. Probably most of these
dining cars are not profitable, and
the railroads would no doubt be glad
cut them off.

Big Crew Busy
On Forest Phones
Twenty men in - the government
forest service are at work putting the
trails and telephones in shape for the
coming season. There are 890 miles
In trails and 300 miles in telephone
lines in the Crater lake forests. The
forest service has a special insulator
on their telephone lines which allows
the line to fall to the ground without
breaking when trees over-weighted
by snow crash into it. Three miles
are down now on the line to Odessa,
but telephone service Is still main
tained by calling In at certain hours
during the day. The line is ground

will not ring, but the voice is trans

Albany Democrat: A new sawmill
started operations Friday In Benton
county at Galloway station, nine miles
northeast of Albany. The mill Is
owned by the J. Al Pattlson company
of Portland and is employed In cut
ting hardwood lumber. Oak is being
worked on at present. A logging
crew had been busy for three weeks
prior to the opening of the mill.
The Philomath Roundup Associa
tion, alive to the spirit of the hour,
has determined that 10 per cent of
the' gate receipts at the great three

Cross Association. As the receipts
last year reached about $25,000, this
concession to patriotism means con
siderable and is characteristic of the
free-hearted men who are managing
the big show.
Astorlan. Through a deal consum
mated this week, Franz Kankkonen
has purchased through the Astoria
Land Company 150 feet of water
frontage in Taylor's Astoria, just
south of the tannery, upon which will
be erected an up-to-date building
which will be used for the manufac
ture of rubber cement, for which
there Is a steadily increasing demand
in this country.

Medford Sun: Mark Austin, gen
eral field superintendent for the 13
sugar mills of the Utah-Idaho Sugar
Company, who left last night for Salt
Lake City, after a careful examina
tion of the beets In this territory, said
that the beets look better, further
advanced and more thrifty here than
in any of the fields of the company
at that time. lie Is Immensely pleased
with the southern Oregon country as
a sugar beet district.
Marshfield Record: The bankers'
convention to be held In Marshfield
on the 8th and 9th of June is already
declared to be so well in hand it will
be a big feature of the summer on
Coos Bay. The local committee of
bankers who sent out the Inquiries
about how many are coming have re
ceived to this date acceptances from
about one third of the membership,
and 70 notifications have reached
here that the bankers are coming.
Lake County Examiner: Hay sold
for $6 per ton near Connley last week
and this valley is perhaps the best
supplied with forage of any section
of Oregon. That the men who run
stock in Lake and Crook counties
from now on can figure northern
Lake county and "The Desert" as
their best bet when the other portions
of the county are short of hay goes
without saying. Low priced hay
means much when the snow is deep
and one is far from a haystack out
on tho range and a big loss staring
him in the face.
Eugene Register: There will be
a good majority for the $6,000,000
road bonds when the ballots are
counted on the night of June 4, Is
the opinion of E. J. Adams, state
highway commissioner, who was in
Eugene yesterday for a short time,
after a trip through the state. He
was on his way to Creswell for a
joint debate with C. E. Ppence, state
grange masted, on the bond question.
Mr1.. Adams excepts Lane, Baker, Linn
and Curry counties when he makes
the statement that every county In
the state Is expected to give the bonds
a majority vote, although he predicts
than In some of the other counties the
vote will be exceedingly close.
Marshfield, Ore. The Oregon &
California Lumber Company of
Brookings has shipped the first car
eo of lumber for 1917, amounting to
about 400,000 feet. The consignment
was transported by the steam schoon
er Quinault, which loaded with the
cable apparatus with which all sup
plies have been landed at Brookings.
The dock being constructed at Brook
ings is under way and will be finished
within the enxt two months, it is
stated. The company's new vessel
has not received its engines, which
were shipped from Norway some
time since, and therefore will not be
In commission for some time.
Pendleton. Ore. The herd of 16
goats bought last year by the Pendla
ton Roundup as a possible attraction
has proved to be a profitable invest
ment, regardless of the fact that they
were dropped from the program of
the show last year. They were to be
featured in a goat-roping act, but It
was found that the act would be too
slow to fit In well. The herd was
kept, however, and has been brows
