the great land-drive, and seemed to indicate a special German drive
at sea to accompany the great offensive on the west front. Two
of the very lowest of these records followed, and last week the num
ber was only eleven, against six the week before.
This indicates that any special drive that may have been made
has partially failed, as the land drive has failed of its objectives,
and at appalling losses to German man-power,
; Ilindenburg had been content last summer merely to hold his
western lines "while the U-boats do their work." It is ndw more
than ever evident that the mighty lunge at the Allied enemy in
Picardy was born of desperation in despair of any decision by way
of submarine ruthlessness.

N It is true that the French people handed their'long-hoarded sav
ings, taken alike from the stocking of the peasant atad the strong
box of the bourgeois, to their own officials; but these humiliated
and heart-broken French officials were acting with bitter resent
ment for the lordly and mandatory tax collectors of Berlin. And
Berlin was on the spot, with its armed bullies and uniformed bailiffs.
It was not content with sending in a bill, like a polite erqdjtor. It
insisted upon holding wounded and shamed France down in the

"Financial sentiment is remarkably steady. The great German
drive seems to have housed a spirit of resistance and a confidence
In ultimate success that is plainly reflected in security values, which
yielded but slightly to unfavorable news," says Henry Clews, the
Wall Street authority, in his current weekly letter. Mr. Clews says
a wheat crop.200.QQO,000L bushels larger than last year's in this
country, and a rye crop 25,000,000 bushels larger, is now looked for,
and larger crops are also expected in Canada, Great Britain and
France, so that the food problem promises to be less aeute in some
respects than in 1917. ? - ': '
- Oregon is attracting favorable attention all over the United
States, on account of her promptness in oversubscribing her share
of the third Liberty Loan. This is a proud distinction, in line with
every other patriotic effort in which Oregon has taken the lead
since the beginning of the great war.

In the early days In Indiana salt

the housewife wanted salt she went
to the stable for it.
