In the recent estimate of the
United States department of ag
riculture on the value of the
wheat, corn and oats and pota
toes raised thin year, 1920, Rives:
"WbealS 7-0.V.48.0OO buphels

"Corn 3.2 16.1 -.000 llnhels

at 56 rents a bushel. S808.8I2,-
M'fltatoeB 414.986.000 bush
els SttfZ a bushel. 11,211,908.-
It would take all four of thes!
leading crops of the United Stales
and 13,400 farms valued at $10-
000 each thrown in, to equal the
cost of running the United States
government by the Democratic
administration, during the past
fiscal year. -ending Jnne 30, 1920.
The official figures on expen
ditures for the last fiscal year, as
given out by the United Statj
trosury department, show the
incomprehensible and almost un
blteveablc total of $.766,444,
461. ' . -
Never in the history of the
whole world, in times of peace,
has there been such a stupendous
extravagance in government, ad
. To make it more comprehen
sive, it means nearly $7.Ot)0 for
every man, woman and child, for
the Democratic administration to
carry on the evtravagant expense
of this government for one year.
Not satisfied with I this collos
sal expense the Democratic ad
ministration went before con
gress and demanded another $,
000.000,000 with which to carry
on the government the coming
year, but. luckily, a Republican
congress called a halt on this

Christianity Brine Advancement.
Hon. Robert A. Booth of Eu-
gene who Is a son of a pioneer
circuit rider, dwelt upon the great
courage of. Jason Lee, comparing
him with the pioneers the middle
west and with the later settlers
whose aim was to establish homes
for themselves, while Jason-Lee
was an ambassador wlt'.i a mes
sage and who was not only a man
or tremendous faith but of work,
who linking them, came and saw
Christianity. In the words of
Congressman Hawley, whose sub
ject was "Jason Lee and Educa
tion In Oregon." Is the basis of all
modern ' governments worthy of
the name; the source of all
strength of all men we admire.
tad every western movement has
been marked by two things that
(o hand in hand. Christianity and
education. He spoke of Jason Lee
is a man of whom It could not be
said that the lust of gold, nor
power, nor anything unworthy
bad ever actuated any of his ac
tivities. It was a notable fact and
one directly resultant to the
teaching of Jason Lee lhat no
slaves had ever been born In this
great state.-and that after other
states had had their struggle, the
people of the i northwest could
state like the Apostle Paul. "We
were free bora." And that we
have ne,ver had a war and have al
ways lived In peace we owe to Ja
son Iee and those who' followed
the American flag, the Christian
church and . Christian education.
Edgar B. Piper, editor of the
Oregonian reflected the attitude
of Governor Olcott in desiring to
see a portrait of the Oregon pio
neer In the congressional hall of
fame, and in his brief address he
spoke of Jawn Lee as the vita
link that had bound the state to
ieT I Tt4inlnicent.
It was not on the program, but
Governor Olcott. noting ex-Goxer
nor T. r. ueer in ine auaience,
thought It fitting that he make
few remarks. The ex-governor
was in a reminiscent mood, and
told of his days at the Old Oregon
Institute when he bad as a daily

the name implies a furnace without pipes. A com
plete heatinp system installed in basement same as
regular furnace but requires no pipes to convey heat
to different rooms.
The advantages to be gained are many. First of all
is a Cool Basement, so important for the storing of
vegetables and fruits. And next is the fact that all
heat generated must pass into rooms above absolutely
no waste heat, meaning a wonderful saving of fuel.
Also it may be installed in homes already built without

You cannot make a mistake by installing this fur
