HIGH TIME TO TAKE A LOOK AHEAD One of the first tangible fcteps toward the period of reconstruc tion that must follow the war has-been taken by Senator Wesley L. Jones of the State of Washington. He has introduced a bill'aiithor izing the President to appoint a commission of 27 members, includ ing representatives of manufacturing, commercial, agricultural, trans portation, banking, and other vital interests of the country. 'The duty of the commission will le it make an investigation of our needs growing out of the War, and to recommend legislation to Congress that willl properly meet the conditions that will confront us after peace is declared. The development of our-foreign and domestic trade is to be one of, the primejobjets to be investigated. The bill appropriates $300,000 for the expense of the- commission, and. they are directed to report within six months from the date of their appointment. - I , ? "It is high time ouTcountry began to take a loqk ahead. As has been said before on this page, Germany is already buying Argentine hides, preparatory to post-war trade conditions. - The industries of France are being .built up for permanency, even in the stress of the war.

'Salem people are interested in the' news of the consolidation of the two leading advertising agencies of Oregon., The agncies which have combined their forces art the Deute-Tyler Company and the Botsford Advertising' Company both of Portland. .Mr. Deute, onr of the "original organizers of the first haitied company, was adver tising manager of The Statesman until just before he helped launch that enterprise. However, ne has not been active in that agency for ,a long time, having taken up with other interests. P. S. Tyler, the chief of that concern for a long time, is a frequent visitor to Salem, . in connection with his work for; the Pheasant Fruit Juice Company, whose products he has helped to make favorably known the country over. . Among" those who will be heads of departments in the consoli- y dated concern, which will be known as the Botsford-Tyler Company, are P. S. Tyler, David M. Botsford, W. K. Botsford and A. E. Bloch; all well known in the advertising and business world. This will make J a .very . strong and vigorous combination, capable of helping all Oregon. Among the clients of the new concern are : The Northwest Fruit Products Company, of Salem, and Olympia, Wash.; Pheasant , Fruit Juice Company, of Salem - Yakima Valley Fruitgrowers Asso ciation, of North Yakima; R. M. Wade & Co., of Portland; Noglare Auto Lens Company, of Portland ; Oregon City Woolen Mills, of Oregon City; Pacific Coast Biscuit Company, of Portland; Charles K. Spaulding Logging Company, of Salem; Vogan Candy Company, . or Portland; Wilbur Woolen Mills, of Stayton; IteadyrBuilt House Company, of Portland ; JFirst National Bank, of Portland ; Ticknor & Co., Portand; Neustadte- Bros., of Portland ;,Farm Utilities Company, of Portland; Monroe & Crisell, Portland ; MeNeff Tractor Company, Portland; Dairy Machinery Company, of Seattle; Portland Seed Company Portland ; National Tank & Pipe, Portland ; Portland Hotel ; United States Bakery, Portland; McClanahan Incubator Company of Lugene. ' Russell II. Conwell, the dean of American lecturers, told his snlendid Salem audience on Tuesday evening how the Capital City may be made one of -the- most-prosperous and rapidly growing cities in the country. The matter rests with our own people. If we-would alL stand-by one another, and all pull together, the trick would be turned. It can be done right here, by the people now here. It is to be hoped that, when State Treasurer Thomas B. Kay re turns from his tour of investigation concerning flax manufacture, he will be ready to tell Salem how the north mill site and power may oe uunzea, ior tneooa oi our. State and the Nation. It Is 'against the orders of the War Department tor soldiers j in Prance to cable home their exact location, but it is to be presumed the ban will be lifted when they reach Berlin. - ? j i '. - ' ' ' ),-": I ; , Pray for rain.

Common garden sage brewed into a heavy tea, with sulphur and alco hol added, will turn gray, streaked and faded hair beautifully dark and luxuriant. Mixing the Sage Tea and Bulphur recipe at home,, though, is troublesome. An easier way is to get the' ready-to-nse preparation, im proved by the addition of other in gredients, a large bottle, at little cot,' at drug stores, known as "W'yeth's Sage, and Sulphur Com pound." thus avoiding a lot of muss. While gray, faded hair i.- not sin ful, we all desire to retain oir youthful appearance and attractive ness. Hy darkening your hair with Wyeth's- Sage and Sulphur Com pound, no one can tell, because it does it so natHrally, so evenly. Yon Just dampen a sponge or soft brush with it and draw this through your hair, taking one small strand at a time; by morning all gray hairs have disappeared. .
