THE PURE BRED HONEY BEE
.: The Statesman of yesterday contained a news article
concerning an industry that ought to be encouraged and that
will keep a good deal of money at home ! !
The breeding of honey bees and queens, by H. M. Mead,
on his Polk county place a few-miles west of Salem, on Rural
Route '2. ' I
The honey bee is one of the most marvelous of all crea-
tures. The philosophers of old studied the habits of the bee
and books have been written about the works and govern-
' ment of this wonderful insect; books telling fascinating facts.
But .the" pure bred honey bee of the industry , under dis
cussion is for the fruit growers of the Salem district a most
practical necessity. The fruit growers must have bees to
pollenize their fruit blossoms. In no other way will this be
"done :-.;j i : : r''-;"'v-':; - ::'h:i:iA:':'i-::r't -And
it will not be done thoroughly unless there are great
- numbers of worker bees; " virgin daughters of toil;". billions
and billions of them :
And there will not be great numbers of bees unless the
bee industry pays. It will pay only if-we have pure bred bees
v; of the golden kind; and we should tolerate no o$her
And unless there is provided ample late bee pasture,
v So it is a fine thing that we have, a breeder of bees here
with knowledge ; one who can supply, the right1 kinds and
tell of the right ways to treat them for the greatest profits.
. The pure bred honey, bee is as important for the people
of this district as the pure bred cow, or the pure bred any
thing else. And our, aim should be to weed out the scrubs
in every line. s " T i . : "
The moving of the offices of the state superintendent
of banks from the capitol to rented rooms in Portland should
, help to bring about a campaign for an of f ice building on the
site north of the supremeT court and state 1raiT-buflinir
e purchased and set aside for that purpose a number of years
s ago. With! such a structure as ought to occupy that site,
there should be no excuse for the state renting many, if any,
offices in Portland or elsewhere. If for convenience some
state offices ought to be j maintained in Portland, it would
be better for the state to own its prn building there. Could
- that be done, under the Constitution?
I MORE SHEEP, BUT NOT ENOUGH
Consider the wool industry, how it grows ; they toil and
likewise do they spin, and Solomon in all his glory was not
arrayed like Americans of the present day. ;Note a decade
of development: In 1914 the census bureau counted 799 mills
engaged in the manufacture of woolen and worsted goods.
These factories employed, to use round numbers, 159,000
hands, who were paid an aggregate in wages of $76,000,000,
or an average per capita, part and full time, skilled and un
skilled, of $480 a year. The cost of materials was $246,500,
000, the value, of products was $379,500,000,' and the value
added by manufacture, $133,000,000. T 1 " j
. In 1923, according to a bulletin just issued by the census
bureau, there were 851 mills engaged in the industry. They
jemployed 194,500 wage earners,- who were paid an aggregate
of $223,000,000, or an average per capita of $1150, an increase
of nearly 140 per cent over 1914. The cost of materials was
5623,000,000, an advance of 153 per cent in the course of the
decade; the value of products was $1,063,000,000, and the
value added by manufacture was $440,000,000.
' . The woolen industry today is protected by tariff rates
So is the wool which the farmer produces. In 1911,
under the protective policy, we had 53,000,000 sheep in the
United States. The Democrats removed the protective duties
in 1913, and in 1920 the number of sheep in this country, had
fallen to 35,000,000 : i
But protection to wool being restored in 1922, there fol
lowed an upward movement, and last year the census count
showed 38,000,000 sheep, and the growth continues j,. It can
scarcely be too fast, because even yet we are importing from
foreign countries, principally ! from Australia, over half the
wool we are using i i
And we will not be living up to our opportunities till .we
produce all the wool we use ; and" until we become as nearly
as . possible a self contained nation, raising and making in
this country all the articles we need, as fast as the natural
conditions will warrant- . - ;
Everything that may be produced in the temperate zone.
We are coming up getting more sheep, but we are not
getting more of them fast enough. 1-
Meanwhile, the price of wool clothing,' while it has
advanced appreciably, compared with 1914, has not begun to
record such an increase a3 ! have .wages and the cost of
materials. - 5 . ' I

Now, mush ha been a staple
article of diet since time was.' In
the days when the Corvallis editor
was a barefoot baby liU parents
fed hid os mush, and It gave him
tLat' good " start H'wntca enabled
t!n ;,to'-etretclr- ertr . the :z.x foot

family was ; almost T literally

families made it'by the bucket

per, together with milk, and the
next morning it was fried oh!
such a delicious dish it made. I
In all races mush has served as
a stimulant as well as a growing
portion of tjie human diet. It has
never had a substitute. The
breakfast foods have not touched
it, and the next generation will
have mush the same as the pre
vious one. We venture the state
ment that there are more ; great
men - fed on mush than on any
other article of food in the world.
It Is a better muscle ' maker , than
meat; it makes children groir," It
satisfies the appetite of the mid
dle aged and the old, and the
strong men partake of it for sap
per diluted with milk, and have It
in the morning fried as only a
mother can fry it. Mush has
never been properly recognized,
gome people think it is a plebian
dish, but it Is not; it is simply
great and it makes people grow.
It has held Itaplace through all
the years and it will continue to
bold Its place because there Is no
substitute for it, nothing that can
take its place. It is always there
when needed, always cheap, al
ways filling, and always satisfy
If love can do for Europe what

, HELPING THE IAIR YMEX
American Consul Dow at "Rot
terdam has sent to : the United
States department of commerce a
table published by the Dutch gov
ernment showing the quantity of
raw materials used in the Dutch
margarine Industry of 1923. Dur
ing that year the industry con
sumed 45,124 metric tons of ani
mal fats, 66,103 tons of vegetable
fats, 298 tons mixture af animal
and vegetable fats and ,253 tons
of batter. Please note the last
amount. . There are . 5.7 factories
and the output was 66.669,206
florins: Of thas amount only 3,-
000,000 florins went for butter.
milk, yolk of eggs, salt and other
ingredients. f ..."
iDo, you wonder that .the dairy
men are becoming alarmed and
that the issue of pure butter is a
live one in Oregon and the north
west? r So far the producers of
dairy' substitutes have defeated
the dairymen. They defeated
them; in y direct vote in Jxoth Ore
gbn and Washington" and in. the
legislature Of Idaho.. The situa
tion is one that calls for, serious
thought because It is a menace to
our butter industry;
SALOON IS BACK
- British - Columbia has shilly
shallied on liquor legislation. It
tried prohibition and. the howl
went up that the bootleggers were
doing the (business. Then they
tried government dispensaries but
the bootlegging was worse than
ever. The liquor traffic is always
resentful of ; any I restraint, and
when a dispensary refused to sell
to Inebriates or minors the boot
legging flourished more under the
dispensary system than It did un
der prohibition." ' v .'"-T- '
, The third proposition that wa
submitted to the people was the
plebiscite, or. as we would say in
this country the referendum, and
prohibition was sustained, but in
some unaccountable way the gov
ernment construed this as author
izing the ; selling of beer. ; B. ; C.
now has saloons. ,
The Statesman published a let
ter the other day from a man who
has been engaged in timber farm
ing. It attracted our special at
tention because it Is : along . the
lines that must be : followed : in
Oregon. .We must replant our for
ests, we must find some way of
replacing cut timber. By care
ful timber farming it is possible
to keep forests going forever,, bat
we can not depend upon the gov
ernment's reforestation. That is
on a glfirantlc scale, of ourse. but
the real test will be how well the
Individual farmer replaces his cut
timber: Thia opens an avenue of

people and one that we must fol

PALM SUNDAY marks the beginning of what Is sometimes called
"Holy Week," or "Passion Week," The triumphal entry was on
the first day of that week. It would be well for us to read the story
of this event as recorded in the Gospels of Matthew. Mark and Luke
along with the account given here in John. There was that beautiful
anointing in Bethany, when Mary took the small flask of pure nard,
very precious, and anointed the feet of Jesus. : 2Cben He turns toward
Jerusalem. His Jerusalem. As He reached the crest of the hill where
He may look down upon the city. He halted, and wept over the city
that had rejected Him. ; It Is now to be left desolate. The day of its
grace is past. In a few days that city will demand His crucifixion.
As the' multitude came out to meet Him with shouting and great
demonstration, it must have tilled His heart with mingled joy and
sadness. . How easily the multitudes are swayed. One day acclaiming
and the next day condemning t Poor Jerusalem! No wonder Jesus
