Mrs. Holladay. ,
. Announcements of Benjamin Camp
bell Holladay's marriage to Miss Edythe
Liuthene Lane in Han Francisco, Janu
ary 17, have been received here. Aa
Ben Holladay was granted a decreo of
divorce from hla wife, who was Miss
fclspeth Andrewa of Mount Tabor, In
Portland, January 14, the announcement
has naturally been the occasion of much
surprise among those who know Holla
airs. Anarewa-HOiiaday when ques
tioned mis morning, stated that she did
not even know her divorced husband's
whereabouts, .much less any plans of
his to he married again. Neither had she
ever beard of Mtsi I.ane. None of Hoi
laday'g relatives or acquaintances here
bad, ever beard of Miss Ine.
Mrs. Holladay, since her separation
from her husband, has been making her
home wun ner mother, Mrs. George H.
Andrews, on Mount, Tabor. ' The divorce
was quietly granted January 14 by Clr
culV Judge. Morrow, Holladay making
an appearance and entering the simple
plea of desertion, which Mrs. Holladay
mane no errort to, contest. " ' ,

law which requires that no divorcee

the decree has been granted. The-de

must not remarry within six months.
Whether Holladay. would consider him

going to-another state, 4s a question.
To have been married In Ran Francisco
on January 17. after having secured his
divorce - in , Portland : only three dava

President's Order Against

Tongues of 11 re." arid he is the la test.
Railway mail clerks of Oregon are
laying two serious charges at the door
of the . government. ,They cannot make
complaints openly , or. directly, they as
sert, becausa of the recent order from
President Taft forbidding railway mail
clerks to file complaints except with
the official next in authority above
them. This the clerks denominate as
the "gag rule," for unless their superin
tendent approves the complaint it will
never leave his hands to be forwarded
through Tarlous other officials to the
postmaster general. ; jv either are they al

to cover up Intolerable conditions in tbe
railway 'mail service,"; declared a clerk
whose name, for .obvious reasons, cannot
be disclosed. r "It Is a, fact -with which
we are all familiar, that this movement,

Washington. Feb. 4.The advice of
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, chief of the
bureau of chemistry, . department of
agriculture, to . the housekeper in the
present emergency due to the high cost
of living, is to abstain from worry and
buy everything she haa been buying
only not so muck of it. -
A 10 cent soup bone will flavor
half a bushel of potatoes," said Dr.
Wtloy today, "and will, if cooked right.
taste Just as good as a dollar steak.
With the addition of an onion, a carrot
and a sprig of parsley that soup bono
can be made, to produce' enough good,
nourishing soup for a big family; Then,
after the soup Is made, save a littlv of
the flui and bo ft It down In the kettln
with the meat. Then you'll have a 'pot
roast' which,- if made right, will be fit
to set before the president. .
"Canned " goods of all kinds are
cheaper than .ever before In our history.
Beans and peas have not risen appre
ciably In price, and make the best food
for man. Wheat flour. t,th price It
is, now selling..' Is.. Ibo cheapest fow ...
that -can be bought, - and cor n- men I
hasn't changed In price for the past 10
years. . .,' ;, ' . -
' Use Up tha X.ft Orsrs.
""If 'tHe American cook would study
the methods of the French cook, who
uses up all the 'left overs.' you .would
not hear so much about the increased
cost of living. The average American ,"
cook throws sway, or wastes enough to
keep the ordinary French family going.
Over there they save every scrsp of
fat and even' crumb of bread." and con
vert them, into appetizing dishes, They
know bow to make tho most Out ot
the cheaper cuts of ' meat. Over her
the average -cook turns - up his or her
nose at the coarser grades of meat.
"Of course, a great deal Of the added
cost in the price of meat products has
come about as a result of combination
of dealers. The farmer is not getting
much more for his cattle than he lid
10 or IS years ago. The government ,
or the state will have to step In one of
these days. If these combinations con-
Itinue to increase the prices, ami enact
laws prohibiting dealers from making
I more than a certain amount of profit.
Treat Trusts as Usurers. ,
"This nuggestlon, of course, will be
balled with cries of 'paternalism !t Well,
let it be paternalism, If you please. All
government Is paternal, when you come
right down to brass tacks It the gov
ernment can enact laws declaring the,
amount of interest or profit a dealer
