A New Butter and Egg Man
IN the golden days of the "new" era" k phrase sprang up
representing the very height of pagan indulgence : "but
ter and egg man". It was in truth an unwarranted aspersion
on the character of those who engage in the useful and or
dinarily rather drab business of merchandising eggs and but
ter to the great American public. Yet it did typify the ex
travagance of the period, when even "butter and egg" men
' could rollick around night clubs in riotous fashion. .
The butter and egg business, she ain't what she used to
be, just like the old grey mare. Butter fat down in the 'teens
and eggs just hovering at the 'teen price mark, why there
are few cocktails and wild parties left in the business. But
a new "buttr and egg" man appears on the horizon of
southern Oregon. This is no roisterer; but a pious elder,
W. G. Harding, secretary of the Rosehurg chamber of com
merce. Distressed at the ills of the owners of cows and chick
ens Mr. Harding cogitated. His brain incubated and after a
certain length of time it hatched an idea ; and this is Hard
ing's idea, which gains publicity through the columns of his
home town paper:
"The creation of national butter and egg days, encouraging
everyone to use as much of these products as possible during a
certain three days each month".
There we have it ; three days a month a hundred million
people will crack eggs and spread the butter on thickly. The
wheat men should favor it, because the butter needs a car
rier, bread, none better.
The idea is a good one; but we wonder how the Ump
qua valley will be able to market all the rest of its varied
products. There are only SO days fn the month, with an oc
casional extra, which gives but ten groups of threes. And
here come the broccoli, the prunes, the canteloupe, the tur
keys, the lamb arid mutton, the apples and pears, the water
melons, all fine products of the rich valley. When will they
get their turn? Brother Harding better be careful or he will
be accused of favoritism and discrimination.
We see little virtue in the idea of the new butter and egg
man. It would be well, indeed for folk to partake three days
a month of eggs and butter, separately or in pairs. But our
own opinion is that with butter at the price it is, and eggs at
the price they are a vast number of families are making
butter and eggs days about 30 days a month, and doing so in
a balanced diet which does not pall the appetite or do in
justice to the vendors of other foodstuffs.
We Agree With Gov. Meier
TTTE agree with Gov. Meier's estimate of Leslie M. Scott,
W that "he is generally regarded as the best highway
chairman we have evef had since the commission plan was
adopted." Scott has been making a full-time job of it. In
stead of relying on "Jjorseback surveys" he has gone over
routes himself, along with engineers, spending days in the
field. These personal surveys have led to selection of loca
tions for nem-xoads which will save hundreds of thousands
of dollars in construction costs and provide routes that are
most practicable to service the motorists.
It Is a tough question to decide, that of issuing more
bonds for road work. Oregon has issued about as many
road bonds as it should do in. safety. Our credit is still good,
but our outstanding debt is one of the very highest per cap
ita in the nation. Only as an extreme resort should more
bonds be issued even for relief work.
Gov. Meier is properly sensitive to the human needs of
men and women; and is supported in this by Aaron Frank
who has been a leader in the relief work in Portland, bome
ways must be. devised for ministering to human need ; if at
all Dossible without the issuance of road bonds.
At all events Chairman Scott should be retained in his
office. The cohimission has gained full public confidence and
its personnel should not be disturbed. We are glad the gov
ernor was able to get Mr. Scott to- withdraw his resignation,
presented because of a difference in policy over issuing more
road bonds.
Honoring an Oregon Author
FHlHAT indefatigable apostle of Oregon history, Dr. J. B
X Horner, is the good genius who inspired the Linn chap
ter of Daughters of the American revolution to erect a mon
ument or marker honoring Frederic Homer Balch at Tall
man. which is near Lebanon on the Albany road. The mon
ument will stand on the site of the school that Balch first
attended. The dedicatory exercises will be held Sunday aft
emoon at two o'clock in charcre of the Linn chapter.
- Frederic Balch is the author of "The Bridge of the
Gods", and was born at Lebanon in 1861. He entered the
ministry but his early interest in literature bore fruit in
Doetnr. historical sketches, novels. "The Bridge of the Gods"
was woven about the legendary crossing over the gorge of
the Columbia. It is a romantic treatment of the fabled bridge
which linked the Cascade range in prehistoric time.
As author of one of the earliest novels of the Oregon
country, and one which still is a DODular seller. Balch de
serves the tribute which Dr. Horner and the good ieople of
his native county are thus paying to his memory.
Comrade Harris has passed on to the final grand reunion. This
tine old veteran of the Civil war was a sterling figure, and retained
his physical and mental vigor remarkably well to the a?e of 93.
He was typical of the thousands of voatha of the 'GO'S who answer-
Id Father Abraham's call in defense of the union; and lived to see
we nation ne fought to save crown rich and great.

Waiting's history of the south

1884, says: The Umpqua Is sec
ond only to the WUlamette of the
interior streams of Oregon in ita
value as an artery of commerce. . .
In 1879 it was surveyed by gov
ernment engineers, from whose
report the following is condensed:
"It rises in the Cascade moun
tains and flows westward for 180
miles, measured along Its sinuosi
ties, entering the Pacific ocean
17S miles south of the mouth of
the Columbia. Its principal
branches are the North and South
Cmpqna, which nnite 9( miles
above its mouth. It drains with its
tributaries an area of 4200 square
miles. . . Scottsburg. . . . 2S miles

general outline as the sea ... No
change of importance Is percepti
ble in the form and position of the
bar, as shown by the U. 8. coast
survey of 1852. The engineers
made the soundings across the
bar, and found IS feet the least
depth at low tide. . . The survey
mentioned was requested by the
citizens of Scottsburg tor the pur
pose of ascertaining th feasibility
and cost of removing the obstruc
tions to navigation between that
point and Gardiner."
The estimated cost was found to
be $11,110. With this report the
matter was dropped, no subse

of a fad in recent years. There
is apt to be danger, in every
fad. Foods that will be useful
vary with each individual, hence
a diet most be carefully pre
scribed that la exactly fitted to
the given case, and this can be de
termined only after a thorough
physical examination. .
Thorough study of the heart and
circulation is essential, to discover
the conditions of these organs and
thus determine whether exercise
can be prescribed, and how much
can be taken without injury. High
blood pressure calls for special at
tention, and if the blood pressure
is abnormally loir, rigid dieting
mav be danrerous.
The urine should be analysed,
and tested particularly for albu
men and sugar. Let me impress
upon any readers that diabetes is
more frequently found in a per
son who is overweight than in a
thin individual. In many cases
blood analysis for sugar and pro
tein waste products is important, '
because the urine may show ne
sugar, although there is actually
an excessive amount in the blood.
Overweight may be due to a
glandular disturbance, and more
than one gland may be involved.
A superabundance of flesh may
be a sign of what the doctors caQ
a metabolic disease, and if it is
due to a disturbance in metabol
ism, it is advisable that a basal
metabolic test be performed by the
attending physician. This Is a
simple procedure, giving definite
and useful information, and I will
explain it in a later article.
After this test, the condition
may be properly treated by the
use of certain medicine. In such
a case thyroid substance may be
given, but only under . the super
vision of a physician, for thyroid
extracts are dangerous when used
by inexperienced persona.
As a rule obesity is caused by
excessive eating and -reducing
weight by controlling the appetite
is to omy sate procedure, its
only drawback is that it reauire
time and patience. Remember that
reducing several pounds a week it
C dangerous folly and that many
serious complications result from
this practice. A loss ef one pound
a week it sufficient and more
should not be attempted.
If every person desirous, of lad
ing weight will consult a physic i'i
before starting to reduce, V
healta will not be injured, and by
wis direction his goal will be attained.

"The Swan, steamer com
manded by Captain Hahn, ascend
ed the river as tar as Roaebnrg In
1870. Th distance from ScotU
burg to Rose burg was stated to be
nearly 100 miles. . . A move was
made to secure appropriations
from the general government for
the purpose of Improving th
channel, as Captain Hahn reported
that the expenditure of a few hun
dred dollars would enable vessels
like his to pass the rapids with
facility, except in seasons of ex
treme low water.
"Shortly after the initial voyage I
a company known as the Mer
chants and Farmers' Navigation
company was Incorporated, with
th object of 'navigating the Ump-
qua river from Gardiner to Can
yonville or as far as practicable.
"The directors of the corpora
tion were J. C. Flood, president:
T. P. Sheridan. J. C. Hutchinson.
D. C. McClallen and S. W. Crane.
Asher Marks was treasurer and
James Walton secretary. (This
was Judge James Walton, after
wards of Salem, father of Mrs.
Sheldon F. Sackett, secretary of
Governor Meier.) Th capital
stock was fixed at $12,000. Cap
tain Hahn a services were engaged
and a suitable steamer was imme
diately constructed. The vessel
was built under the direction of
Captain Hahn.- and was completed
in August, 1870. Her name was
the Enterprise, and her cost with
incidentals was about $8000.
' "The directors of the company
advertised their rates for freight
ing from Gardiner, which were aa
follows: To Scottsburg $3 per
ton; to Calapooia $10, to Rose
burg $12, and to landings abov
th latter -place $14. The rates
down river were Just one-half the

"In editorial comment upon
these events, the Plalndealer

now no doubt that the Enterprise
will b able to come to Roseburg

year, and. with very little im

There waa a large picture of
Lily Lou and Ken, as- they-were
sailing for South America, right
after the wedding.
Lily Lou was the proverbial opera
star, wrapped in chinchilla, with
orchids, large as any Nita Nahlmaa
ever wore on her shoulder, smiling
Ken, wearing a polo coat that
wasn't very different from the on
he wore in the old commuting days,
stood in the background, holding
small Robin, a youthful sailor in
blue reefer and cap, by the hand.
The newspaper caption read:
"Madame Lily Lou Lansing, with
her husband, Kentfield Carey Sar
gent, on board the steamer Guada

sing, Madame Lansing's child by a
former marriage."
Tony was much amused when h
saw the picture and the caption.
He and his friend, the chorus
master, celebrated Lily Lou's wed
