j lint the sheep boom is not crowding out any of the other.C
It is helping them all, or most of them. The farmer can raise
:aore feed for his hogs and cows and poultry and other animals
im his land because of the benefits conferred by sheep. Sheep
contribute much towards , making a balanced industry of

1 1 "A flock of sheep on every farmland a registered ram at
ihe head of every flock, " is a slogan offered by J. (5. S. Hub
jard of Monroe,: a practicaL sheep breeder of wide experience,
j We have a number of lamb clubs in this section. "We should
'lave many more of them. They should be encouraged, along
Iwith'the pig clubs and calf clubs, and every bank and every
business man in all the Salem district ought to look to this.

powerfully aid in making the whole country certainly and
iolidly prosperous M ! . f
I And they will provide an insurance policy of stability.'
! Hon. T. B. Kay has asserted on numerous occasions that
sheep are more profitable than hogs, and would be more pro
fitable even without their production of wool, because the sheep
fatten themselves, and they clean up the weeds and make the
soil more fertile
h And the wool is "velvet."

One man tells the Slogan editor that! sheep pay for their keep
! three times with their wool, their mutton, and their aid in
keeping the land clean and fertile. ! j
"That's where the best sheep in the world come from" is
an expression referring to the Salem district that will be no
dream, declares a breeder of wisdom and experience when
there is a flock of sheep on every farm, and a registered buck

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS
There Is a mighty fine song
which says, "Count Your Blessings
6no by One." We have so many
of them in this country that they
are hard to count, but one of our
greatest blessings is prohibition. 7
We are apt. to think; because
there are minor violations that

obeyed as well as any other new
law, which affects so many people.
The liquor business was tremen
dously profitable and it enticed
its victims as matter of business.
It was hard for the moral issue
to combat this, bat it has done it
successfully. The Volstead act has
been a great success and It is vin
dicating. Itselfevery,hourof the
tdayf ; - .
We no longer consider liquor In
politics, and until recent years- It
dominated entirely. Both the ma
jor parties this year aro dry and
o are their candidates. -Ten
years ago there were 177,-
790 saloons, C39 breweries and C8
big distilleries in the country.
They were monuments of evil;
their influence terrifically bad and
they influenced politics all the way
along the line. They made contri
butions and they supplied the de
ficits. The biggest, difference Is In the
working people. Today they are
riding in -automobiles and caring
for their families well. A great
advance In ten years. -In the old
days when the liquor men got the
bulk of the wages.the conditions
of the laboring men were bad,
very bad. Their present condition
isnot entirely due to wages. It
Is-just as much due to the absence
of liquor. A man who made $25
a week and spent half of it for
liquor spent 50 per cent of his in

spent $12.50 for liquor only spent
one-sixth of his Income. - - There

half was put there under prohi
bition. Robert Babson Is authority
for the statement that the money
saved on the nation's liquor bill
will retire the national debt asjt
comes due. Distinguished visitors
like Lroyd George attribute the
happiness of American children to
prohibition. There are some bless
ings that can not be measured in
dollars and cents. They loom
large in any discussion of the
beneficial results of national pro
hibition. TAXATION AND PROPERTY
It is easy enough for a state to
confiscate property and make ten
ants of the land owner. In fact
the process has been under way.
and unless it is checked will be
accomplished within the lifetime
of the present generation.
The fanners have been paying
taxes out of their capital. They
can not continue this. It means
the loss of every farm in Oregon
ultimately. But is the plctnie so
dark? Not necessarily. Farm
taxes for state purposes this year
have been reduced about 40 per
cent and the collection of income
tax has so far exceeded expecta
tions that there will be no prop
erty tax for state purposes levied
next year against the people of
Unaccountable as it is, the Ore-
gonian, the great state paper, is
using its influence to make the
people believe ; their taxes are be
ing increased by the income tax.
It is not only a reflection on the
intelligence of the people of Ore
gon to think that they should ac
cept that statement, but the Ore-
gonian certainly is not using its
own intelligence when It does so
speak. Such influence is sinister
and has the effect of tearing down
rather than building up. In its
Sunday issue the Oregonian builds
up by telling about the great im
provements In Oregon, but edi
torially it attempts to give the lie
to its own statements and make
the people believe that ultimately
the farmers will lose their lands.
Dr. R.-T. Ely, of the University
of Wisconsin, shows, by official
tax records of states, and also fig
ures compiled by bureau ot eco
nomics of department of agricul
ture, that the states will soon ab
sorb by taxation all income of
It is a principle of law that to
take the income from property is
practically the same as to take the
property Itself. 1
In Ohio farm lands between
1880 and 1920 increased in value
from $45.97 to $113.17 an acre,
while taxes from 1913-1921 in
creased 177 per cent. In Kansas
values Increased from $10.98 in
1880 to $62.30 In 1920, and taxes
271 per cent from 1913 to 1921.
Since. 1920 land values have de
creased at an average of 20 per
cent. Taxes, on the other hand,
have shown the opposite tendency.
A statistical chart of taxes and
farm income would show the line
for, taxes steadily curving upward
in the past eight years, and now
near to .the line of farm income.
When It crosses that line the work
of confiscation is complete.
"The power to tax is the power
to destroy." i .

It Is a fact that Oregon is not
training its teachers fast enough
We are increasing the demand a
thousand a year because of the
losses each year Teachers are
well paid now, but they have been
under-paid so long that they can
not, understand how it was pos
sible to make teaching a profes
sion. We must teach this in our
normal schools and in our norma
courses in other schools.
i We have a most excellent nor
mal at Monmouth, but one will
not do for Qregon. Wo ought to
have two more, one in tha south -
eastern and the other in the north-
eastern part . of the state, f We
must not neglect the training! of
our teachers. We must make that
one of the paramount things In
our education because the- stan
dard of teaching is being constant
ly raised, and wej must supplybe
demand with competent teachers
in order to meetj the " call of this
age. We spend a; lot of money

A GOOD SELECTION
The Oregon Statesman is inigbty
glad that, wise . Counsel prevailed
and M. J. Newhouse, who under
stands the prune business from
top to bottom, his been confirmed
as manager of the new exchange.
The Portland board of trade,1 as
its part of the contract for help
ing, dictated that headquarters
should; be therej. The headquar
ters should be! where the, most
prunes? are grown, which is Salem
and the upper Willamette, j How
ever, we expected those people to
demand their ptjmnd of flesh, but
it is good news that-Mr. Newhouse
was selected manager. H was
not to blame for the troubles of
the old association and he has
shown a capacity for business ihat
is gratifying to I those concerned.
THE STATE FAIR
Oregon has long been proud of
its state fair, and without- doubt
the one this year will surpass any
ever held. The lists already
issued: show -a j remarkable, prog
ress being made, and everything
indicates a successful fair.
The people of Oregon take pride
n their fair. They believe In it.
They also believe in supporting it.
The attendance -last year broke all
records, but this year it Is going
to ! break that record; What is
best. of alt, however, is that the
people who come here are going to
see something and be entertained.

be done by flying at extremely

special compressors for'the motor

Hop Picking at Silverton

(Special to The Statesman ) Ad
vertisements for hop-pickers ap
peared in the local papers as
early as two weeks ago and pick
ing of early hops is. expected to
begin the first week in August
This is about three : weeks or a
month earlier than picking began
a number of years, ago. It is
said that the early hops are" not
particularly heavy this year but
a better crop is looked for when
the late yards ripen. Farmers
are hot raising hops as generally
as in' former years nor do many
of them seem as willing to assist
in the harvest of . hops. v Many
people; who used to pick hops
regularly have turned their efforts
to the gathering of the evergreen

make about the same amount of
money with less work.
