SQUARE DEAL IS
BASIS OF WORK
Dishonest Dealer Is Almost
Eliminated by Weights and
The square deal has been the ba
sic principle in operation of the de
partment of weights and measures
during the past biennium. The bien
nial report to State Treasurer Kay
made by Spence Wortiuan, deputy
sealer of weights and measures, says
"we have tried to protect both the
consumer and the merchant by giv
ing all a square deal." To this end
district sealers' have visited every

"Who bare been incapacitated in over

at twenty seven camps for organi

General orders issued today provide
for the formation or these detach
ments and the abandonment of the
practice of transferring convalescent
raenf frbrn7 overseas to development
The convalescence men will be sent
to camps nearest their homes. The
order says "it is the intention to dis
charge all overseas convalescents as
aoon as possible consistent with
maximum physical improvement." In

by the detailed accomplishments as

A total of 278 complaints were re
ceived during the two years from all
the state including Portland and all
bave received prompt attention. In
vestigations have resulted in 53 pros
ecutions and in all but two convic
tions were secured.
During the last year all the state
Institutions have been visited and Mr.
Wortman reports that all scale equip
ment in the institutions Is in better
condition than ever before. Com
menting on the net weight law which
was placed under the jurisdiction and
became effective May 21, 1917, the
report states that since that date rep
resentatives of the department have
weighed 13.4 4S packages of com
modities throughout the state.
Ontside of Portland the report
shows that during the biennium 9507
business places have been visited In
the state. A follow-rp system that
has been established has resulted in
much improvement in conditions, it
is asserted. This system gives mer
chants a certain time in which to
make repairs of condemned scales
and unless the scales are repaired
in a reasonable time they are confis
cated. Summarizing, the report
shows the following examinations:
Scales. 20,403; weights. 35.466;
linear measures, 2825; liquid meas
ures. 6769; oil pumps, 1187; gaso
line pumps, 2076. In addition there
were thousands of miscellaneous inspections.
Concerning the specific gravity
regulation of gasoline the report
comments as follows: "During the
1917 session of the legislature a law
was passed lowering specific grav
ity of gasoline sold in the state from
60 degrees (Beaume )to 56 degrees
and It became the duty of the office
of weights and measures to enforce
the provision of the law. This was
done in the entire state until Septem
ber 27. 1918. when at the request of
the government, owing to the fact
that it is using ever increasing
amounts of gasoline in aeroplane
service, instructions were issued to
the district sealers not to enforce the
provision of this law in regard to
gravity until they received further

GRANDMOTHER WAS DRUGGIST
In the early days of our countrv
grandmother- was the druggist, and
her drugs .consisted mostly of root
and herbs gathered from th - fl?l '
and forests. There was peppermin
for Indigestion, mullen for cough
skullcap for nervousness, thorrrb
wort for colds, wormwood for bruises
and sprains, and so on. They were
successiui remedies, too. it was
from a combination of such roots and
hrebs that Mrs. Lydia E. Pinkham
of Lynn, Mass., more than forty-
years ago originated her I now fa
mous Vegetable Compound; and dur
ing all these long years no other
remedy has ever been discovered to
restore health to ailing women so
successfully as this good old-fash
toned root and herb medicine.

Sanitary science has of late made
rapid strides with results that are
i or untold blessing to humanity. The
latest application of its untiring re
search is the recommendation that

nal santation of the drainage system
of the human body as it Is to the!
drains of the house.
Those of us who are accustomed
to feel dull and heavy when we arise,
splitting headache, stuffy from cold,
foul tongue, nasty breath, acid stom
ach, can. instead, feel as fresh as a
daisy by opening the sluices of the
system each morning and flushing
out the whole of the internal poison
ous stagnant matter.
Everyone, whether ailing, sick or
well, should, each morning before
breakfast, drink a glass of real hot
water with a teaspoonful of lime
stone phosphate in it to wash from
the stomach, liver and bowels the
previous day's indigestible waste.

cleansing, sweetening and purifying
the entire alimentary canal before
putting more food into the stomach.
The millions of people who are
bothered with constipation, bilious
spells, stomach trouble, rheumatic
stiffness; others who have sallow
skins.' blood disorders and sickly
complexions are urged to get a quar
ter pound of limestone phosphate
from the drug store. This will cost
very little, but is sufficient to make
any one a pronounced crank on the
subject of internal sanitation.
