The Fall Flower Show
A REAL treat is in store for flower lovers this week-end
when the Fall Flower Show will be held at the Valley
Motor company building on Center street. The exhibition
held last spring gave a foretaste of what rare beauty may
be enjoyed this fall. We shall mis3 the flower3 of spring,
the roses and the fairie columbines and all. But there will
be the maroons and golden browns of the autumn flowers.
Dahlias and chrysanthemums and zinnias and pom poms
with their rich, deep colors will win many admirers.
Flowers help make life in this coastal country an un
ending delight. There is rarely a farmhouse no matter how
humble, nor. a cottage in the city, but what has flowers
about, offering a wholesome interest for those dwelling
there and a friendly appeal to all who pass by. Rower cul
ture in Oregon has passed the "common garden" . period. It
has been developed through many agencies ' until our flow
ers are pre-eminent for their beauty, their variety, and
their quality. And the names of the varieties are becoming
household words as folk seek to improve the produce of
The commercial side of flower culture may not be over
looked either. Bulb growing is fast becoming an important
specialized industry in many districts of the northwest. The
October issue of "House and Garden" contains the following
in an article by F. F. Rockwell:
"Last spring I traveled to the Pacific coast to see the 3prlng
bulb shows in the Northwest, and to get a first- 'and view of
the rapidly developing bulb industry in this se on. What I
found was a revelation! The whole section from . ancouver, B.
C. to southern t)regon has within a few years become bulb
miuded, with both interest and progress in bulb culture on a
large scale centering aronnd Portland, Tacoma and Seattle.
These people are crowing bales (sixteen carloads were shipped
from one point last fall); they are ?oing to grow a lot more
bulbs; they are going to give us even better bulbs than were
ever received from abroad. That Is not merely my opinion, but
the mature judgment of not a few of the largest; Dutch bulb
growers. Incidentally a number of these men have already in
vested hundreds of thousands of dollars in bulb growing in the
This flower show is not at all commercial. It is pro
moted by flower lovers for their own satisfaction and to in
terest others in flower culture and in growing finer flow
ers. Do not miss it. Get acquainted with these flowers which
add so greatly to the pleasure we get out of living.
Dr. Schmidt Loses Appeal
BY a three to two vote a committee ef the American
Medical association on technical grounds upheld the ac
tion of the Chicago Medical society in expelling Dr. Louis
E. Schmidt from its membership. Dr. Schmidt was a physi
cian of high professional ability and of excellent personal
character. Dr. Schmidt took an interest in social medicine.
An organization he was identified with subsidized a public
health institute caring especially for social diseases, and
engaged in advertising to reach those who needed such
treatment. Its services were offered at very low cost.
This was an unpardonable sin for the medical Brahmins
of the Chicago Medical society, and they voted to oust from
their professional organization Dr. Schmidt, whose qualifi
cations and professional standing were unassailable save
that he had violated some of the hocus-pocus ethics of the
Some day the people are going to turn over and take a
fall out of this medical trust. Its charge system is particu
larly reprehensible, unfairly graded and often so excessive
as to put proper medical or surgical care beyond the reach
of the people. A working man may be kept poor for years
trying to play some excessive charge for an operation for
his wife; while raising a family has become almost pro
hibitive. The worst of it is that poor doctors charge just
as much for their services as good doctors, and the befud
dled patient doesn't know the difference.
The doctors perform a lot of charity work for which
they receive no compensation; but there would be less of
this If the scale of fees were more moderate, because the
patients would make more of an effort to meet the bills.
For that matter the business man is constantly called on

to betray the party Into the camp of the Independents.
As The Statesman remarked long ago, the political campaign
is chiefly a Portland affair. The Telegram is busy paddling the
broad buttocks of the Oregonlan and the latter keeps raising welts
on the flanks of the poor Journal. The rest of the state has to suf

, Since the war the federal government expenditures have been
reduced and tax cuts amounting to billions made by congress. But
local taxing units have taken up the slack. Economy, unlike char

We shall have a better race
when such matters as personal
hygiene and sanitation are made
a part of every child's education.
No boy or girl should go throagb.
life handicapped by physical de

these disabilities are curable.
Cleanliness of the body, care
of the eyes, the teeth and all the

to good health and success In

The rapidly growing child Is
using up great Quantities of ener

this account the diet should be

escorting two canoes bearing the

gentlemen were in small canoes
and formed the vanguard to a

of 75 men In all, and among these
was undoubtedly William Henry,

had no inkling of the location of
this Willamette post, with the
statement of Franchese that It
was about 150 miles above the

cannot be the slightest doubt that
he meant 'Columbia' instead of
'Willamette,' as we shall show la

gives of his trip up the river ou
