THE GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD
An additional issue of a million and a half of dollars in
stock is, now being sold by the King's Food Products Com
pany, and offerings are being made to the people of all the
cities up and down the Pacific Coast
And perhaps of the East, too.
" , The Statesman is not in touch with the intimate pro
gram of the concern, the Dundas-Martin Company, which has
undertaken this 'stock sale: but it has an office in Salem, in
the Oregon building, and offerings are being made here
pjid the writer understands that the idea is to hurry the mat
ter, and close out the present offerings in a short period of
time -;- '.
H i And The Statesman does know something about the
process of dehydration, and the writer believes it is the
biggest thing in the world in food conservation
; a And the process used by the King's Food Products Corn
pany, covered by some thirty patents, is more nearly per
fect than any other. ".

products as the science of astronomy is from the ideas of

v -Dehydration means the taking out of the water
juut tne denyarauon oy the Kinsrs process means a
great deal more. It means taking out the water in such
ivays as to leave all the original flavor of the fruits and veg
etables; all the original color; all the food cells; all the orig
inal value in every particular
y . : And thee consumer, any where, any time, merely puts
back the water; ahd the original qualities are all there, un
impaired; . It transfers ur sunshine and rain and ourf rich
toil to the farthest corners of the earth; heat does not af
fect it, neither does cold. " ,

MAX OF PEACE.
The local building and loan as
sociation Is taking in now over
1 1000 a w?ek. and each new loan
made and each new share of stock
sold swells the volume of money
to be passed on for the building
ot more' new homes in Salem.
There are about ten new houses
going up all the time now, with
money being famished by this
association; and the applications
for money for more new homes
s re about six weeks ahead of the
upply. So doubt at the end of
six weeks, the present applica
tions having been provided for.
there will be a lar;;e enough
batch or additional applications
to put the demand still six weeks
ahead of the supply; perhaps
longer, with the opening of spring.
The thing to, do is to just keep
on keeping on, and. If there Is
sufficiently vigorous work on the
part of the force telling shares,
perhaps th9 supply will eventu
ally catch up with the demand.
It should. . The money is here,
and every man, woman and child
in Salem Is a possible stockhold
er. And It is a splendid invest
ment.- Tbe association has never
bad a foreclosure, and there are
no delinquents. It is as solid as
GIbralter; or as the government,
and the stock is a better invest
ment than, government bonds;
or Canadian bonds, or any other
kind ot bonds. .

fact that we have many other big things, already here and

American Legion Meeting
Chaplain William S. Gilbert of
Astoria, returned to Bis home
yesterday, after attending an ex
ecutive committee meeting of the
Salem branch of the American l
glon. held Monday night, to con
sider tbe bonu question.
At this meeting a committee
wss appointed to name an attor
ney to prepare two bills to be
presented at the present session
of the legislature, the ' first ' to
provide each man fifteen dollars
for the time be was actively in.

Oregon should the federal bonus!
The second bill would provide,
a loan- fund, through which the I
ex-service men would be financ-
ed for purchase of farms 'and
homes at a low rate of interest
and on the easy payment plan.
Chaplain Gilbert is at present
chaplain for the Fifth Oregon
Infantry- During the war he
filled the same position with the
162nd Infantry in France.

there Is no warrant for worry
over any Socialist strength.

There Is something rather pa
thetic about this hasty and gen
erous recognition of the Kerensky

burn at that time and who are
we that we should begrudge such
hospitality on our behalf?
