"ROOT OF PROSPEROUS AGRICULTURE"
The harvesting of beets in the Rocky mountain region is
on in full blast nowv and an idea of what this means is given
by-a Denver dispatch telling of the operations of a single
companyr the largest in the industry of the United States,
the Great Western Sugar company, with 21 factories operat
ing this year
With 301,000 acres in beets
Providing jobs for 57,000 hands
; The initial payments to growers to be $32,000,000
Producing 10,000,000 hundred pound bags of sugar
The factories to have an average run of 114 days, com
pleting their campaigns around January 12th
Burning 550,000 tons of slack coal; using extra cars on
H the railroads to. handle the crop, besides thousands of
trucks and wagons.
The Utah-Idaho Sugar company operating 11 factories
this year, comes next, and there are various other companies
throughout the country, with a total of some 110 factories.
In the regions where there are sugar factories, they are
calling the sugar beet the "root of prosperous agriculture."
It paid for his home says a Black Hills farmer. It is a mort
gage lifter, says another. It builds up the country, says an
other. The most profitable crop grown, with proper use of
by-products, says another. A safety crop, says another.
i There are thousands of acres of land in the Salem district,
and throughout the Willamette valley, that will, produce more
tons of beets to the acre than the average throughout the
United States, and with a higher than average sugar
Enough such, land to supply the raw materials for many
: And there is no other thing that will do as much in bring
ing about the profitable use of the idle and slacker acres of
this Valley; no other thing that will do as much in boosting
the dairying and live stock industries here
And all the industries on the land
And in bringing solid and steady and enduring growth.
and prosperity to our cities and towns.
Eventually we will have factories why not now?
'ALL DRESSED UP"
The Salvation Army drive for a new building in Salem
is "all dressed up and no where to go"
That is, the campaign has been marked out, with generals
and colonels and captains and workers, all assigned to trades
and lines of business sections
All set for a quick finish
But the work does not start. It halts. It lacks driving
i force. It lacks the enthusiasm that would have put it over
. If the Salvation Army is to have a new home in Salem,
there must be some way to get the workers to work ; to get
:the organized machinery of the campaign to operating.
I The work of the Salvation Army here justifies the effort
for a new home with better and larger equipment for the
doing of the useful things usually done by that public service
Things that are left to it; that are in the particular field
that organizations covers.
How shall the workers be put to work?
Who has a solution for the galvanizing of them into ac
tivity that will bring results; that will wind up the task that
has been undertaken, and quickly ? It can be done, if enough
'workers will work. The money needed could all be secured in
I small amounts, if enough of the workers would get busy and
stay on the job a few days.
Agreat many people throughout the Willamette valley are
trying out the" growing of figs." A goodly number in Silver

Of all the heroes who fought at
Troy, Odysseus was the last to get
home. In rain his wife expected
him, and Telemachus, his young
son, watching the family fortune
as it dwindled, wondered if he
were the head of the house, and If
he ought to do something about it.
The suiton were asking Penelope
to marry them, on the assumption
that Odysseus was dead or ought
to be, and they were advancing
their plea for her hand by eco
nomic pressure.' living on her
bounty till she should make np her
mind. Helen" had her suitors at
the beginning of her life, Penelope
at the end, when she waa no long
er young, and her beauty had nev
er been more than, as OreRtea
would say, a matter of opinion.
This fact has led some wise men to
suppose that Penelope's story, as
we now have it, by some accident
got told backward. However that
may be, the question remains why
the suitors-wanted to marry her,
anyway. For the property, Tele
machus thought; and to his Inex
perienced eyes it seemed vast!
wealth. But Ithaca was a rocky
bat-sen place. "The first time he
traveled he had his eyes opened.
Since the annoying suitors came
from a distance, they must hav
known better. Just what was in
their minds we can only guess, but
that they did besiege poor Pene
lope there is no doubt, for when
Odysseus returned at last he drew
his bow and slew them, every one.
At one point the story of Tele-
machus and his absent father is
touched with a memory of Helen,
of some value as a picture of her
on the domestic side.
Just before Odysseus made his
dramatic reappearance, Telema
chus had grown desperate. He re
solved to slip away by night in a
small boat, with a few trusted
men and sail to Pylos, where Nes
tor lived, and then on possibly to
Sparta, the home of Menelaos. If
either of his father's friends gave
him any positive reason to think
that Odysseus was dead, he would
go back to Ithaca, put on a bold
front, celebrate his father's fu
neral, marry off . his mother to
somebody, he didn't care which
one, send the other suitors away,
ad take charge of the house.
He had never left his father's
island before. When he came to
Pylos he found Nestor just sitting
down to a feast, with all his people
around Mm. Nestor insistedUthat
he should eat before he talked.
After the meal the old man opened
the conversation himself. He
asked the boy if he was out on
some errand of honest merchan
dlse, or if he was operating as a
pirate. Teiemachus was a .little
frightened at the question, but he
caught the idea, and let the old
man think that pirating was one of
his favorite sports, or would be
when he had more practise.
"Bn I've come to ask if you
havj any news at all of my father,
We have heard nothing at home.
for I've forgotten how many years.
Where in the world is he? Will
you tell me how and when you saw
him last, and anything you know
about him since?"
Nestor" went off into reminis
cences. Odysseus waa his best
friend. He never would tire of
remembering their exploits togeth
er on the plains of Troy. Teiema
chus war afraid he wouldn't
"But when it. came to our re
turning." he-said, "none of us was
wise. Menelaos said he was going
home at once the war was over.
and there was nothing to stay for.
Agamemnon insisted on some sac
rifices, to appease Aihena. Half
of us were for sailing, and half
were for more sacrifices. I saw it
the same way as enelaos, and we
made up quite a fleet when we set
out the- next day. When we had
gone as far as Tenedos, most of us
stopped for a few hours and of
fered sacrifices, to be on the fafe
side, but Menelaos went on. Your
Lather made us quite a speech. He
argued that if sacrifices were the
thing, after all. he was for no half
way measures, and he turned back
to rejoin Agamemnon. And that's
the last, I saw of him. Not a word
have I heard since. Most of the
others reached- their homes. In
Lesbos I stopped to sacrifice again
to make sure, and I must say we
had a great wind right Into the
harbor, domeneus did you ever
hear of him? The suitor Helen
turned down first he had the
smoothest trip of all, without los

as-though notbing had happened.

Teiemachus said that Sparta
would be his next stopping-place.
Perhaps Menelaos might know
something of his father.'" Nestor
thought not, but it would do no
harm to inquire. So the young
man continued his voyage, hoping
for news, and not unmoved by the
prospect of seeing Helen, said to
be more beautiful than ever.
When he came to the famous
gate where once Paris had knock
ed, Eteoneus held him up with
some feeble excuse, and hurried to
"There's another handsome
young man outside." he said. "Do
we let him in?"
"Eteoneus," said Menelaos,
"there have been times in your life
when you did not act like a fool.
I don t get the reference. Of
course we let him in! When I
have .traveled in the past, I have
always ' been hospitably enter
tained, and dare say it has hap
pened to you. We must do the
same in our turn, when, a traveler
Now, what s the meaning of
that!" said Eteoneus, but hot very
loud. " - i
Teiemachus had seen no such
house -as this. The size and the
wealth of it embarrassed him. He
remembered that his father had
more brains, but the thought did-
n t bring ease of manner. They
took him to the marble baths,
where the attendants embarrassed
him further by the thorough wash
ing they gave him, and they oiled
his hair, and put on him better
clothes than he was accustomed to.
MenelaoB came to welcome him, a
tall man with beautiul long, dark
locks, which needed no oil to make
them shine. He wasn't so impres
sive as his house.
"I ve never seen a house like
this,? said Teiemachus. "AH this
bronte and gold and amber, to say
nothing of the silver and ivory!
The court of Zeus -himself on
Olympus must be like this It
can't be much finer.
Menelaos put on a sober air, and
said that no one ought to compare
himself to the gods, but it certain
ly was a satisfactory house. That
is, the building.
'But I would exchange a large
part of my wealth," he said, "to
have back the years I spent away
from this house, and the friends of
mine who died at Troy, or were
lost,on the way home. But I'm
sorry for one friend in particular
- for Odysseus. You must have
heard the name. He did more than
any; of the others for me, and here
I am home again, and, nobody
knows where he is, or whether he
is aUve at all."
The mention of his father
brought sudden anguish to Tele
machus, sudden because he had
had his thoughts on Menelaos' fine
house. He was about to reveal his
name and his errand, when Helen
entered from her vaulted room
How could it be? Yet it could be
no other! His mother had been
careful to tell him how old Helen
was, and he knew what she had
been through. He had expected
Aphrodite, a sophisticated goddess,
charming as sin. As she walked
toward htm he saw that she was
was young and maidenly, and he
knew what Artemis must be like.
With her came a girl who seemed
older, but probably wasn't. They
called her Adraste. She set a chair
for Helen, with a footstool, and
brought her the wool for spinning
in a golden basket on wheels. Tei
emachus forgot his father, forgot
bis mother, forgot the suitors. All
his life he tried to be sorry he
forgot, but he never was.
Helen greeted him. and took the
wool In her hands, and entered the
conversation as though Teiema
chus were a very old friend, or as
though he hadn't really noticed
him. yet. Then she let her hands
fall in her lap.
"Menelaos, I suppose we should
n't ask the stranger1 who he is be
fore he Is ready to tell us, but If
he Is willing, I'd like to make a
guess at his name."
She looked straight at Teiema
chus, and he was so happy he felt
foolish. . . .
'"I did not know." she said.
"that two people .could be so much
alike. .Of , course you see the re
semblance, Menelaos? .:'; v
"No,. I don't, Bald Menelaos.
"Oh, youu mnst have , the mo
ment he ppearedl" .
"Perhaps I must, but I didn't.
"I'll have to tell you, then
Odysseus," said Helen.
"Upon my word. I do see it
now!" said Menelaos. "Ana i
spoke to him of his father just be
fore you joined us: I noticed his
interest in what I was aying. Un-
on my word! There's no mis

Menelaos looked at him. and he
looked at Menelaos. and he no
ticed an expression on the older
man's face which hadn't been
there before hig wife came in. ' A
suggestion of serenity, or almost
that; of satisfaction, let us say.
Teiemachus admitted he waa him
self. But he wasn't quite himself.
They talked for hours, or Mene
laos did, and since there was no
word of his father, Teiemachus
listened politely and watched
Helen and her weaving hands, and
his soul went out of him utterly.
Then Helen said there had been
talk enough, and Menelaos looked
slightly rebuked, but used to it.
and he asked Helen if there wasn't
to be something for supper.
Helen came to the young man
with a goblet of wine in her hand.
"Who drinks of this winevthey
say, forgets ail nis sorrows lor
ever. It comes from Egypt, where
they know the secrets of herbs and
drugs and charms, and there's a
magic in it!"
He took it from her, his hand
touched " hers: and she smiled at
him. It was as she had said; he
forgot alt his sorrows as it seem
ed, forever. But the magic, ha
knew, was not in the wine.
Menelaos was busy with his food
on the other side of the table.
