; ,- ; Skinning the Farmer V- " '
One of the mysteries of government is the reason for tolerat
ing option trading and grain gambling in the Chicago gram pit.
During the war, option trading was suspended. It was restored
July 5, and the immediate result was a return to, the barbarous
game of skinning the American farmer on the one hand and the
American consumer on the other, by forcing down the price of
wheat and other grains at the time of harvest, keeping them
down until the farmer has sold, then raising them to the public
the same old game that kept the farmer poor for decades. .
In the first two weeks' operations in the grain pit, the price
of wheat was depressed 45 cents a bushel. Since then the Euro
pean war scare has forced a partial recovery, but with its passing,
the price will again be hammered down to penalize the growers.
Once the crop is out of the farmers hands and cornered by the
conspirators, the price will be run. up to. exceed anything in the
line of profiteering yet attempted not even excepting sugar.
There is a world shortage of wheat. The United States crop
is 12,G46,000 bushels shy of the average, and American needs are
greater than ever. Russia, the great' producer and exporter, is
out of the market. Argentina, America's greatest rival, is over
sold. All the world needs wheat and all the world will be paying
dearly for it before the next crop is harvested.
There is no justification for an option market for gram, and
no necessity for it. Other products are handled without any trad
ing in futures. And' there is no reason for making grain an ex
ception, when it has such an injurious effect upon the country
Farming is hazardous enough without being made the sport of the
Congress should forbid grain gambling by boards of trade and
provided a system for advancing money to growers, on elevator
certificates. .Farmers should cooperate "in, marketing to free
themselves from the speculator and profiteers and force action
by congress else farming will again become unprofitable.

Caught By A Thistle
"You'll have to help me," Peppery
Polly Bumblebee said to Freddie
Firefly through the darkness. "If
you'd been a little less stingy with
that light of yours I wouldn't
made the mistake of thinking
thistle was a clover blossom."
. "Well, there's neotar in it,
there?" he inquired.
"I suppose so," she answered.
Senators May Meet
Fast Northern Club
' - Not content with the claim the Sa
lem Senators now have on the Oregon
nmi-nro baseball title. Manager
if racks is making arrangements for a
bout with the Aberdeen, Wash., team.
This club' is leading in Washington
bush circles and Kracke figures that
a two-day Buries with the Washington
team will put the locals in shape for
the play with the Beavers, -Monday.
i "We may pluy Aberdeen,1 Saturday
'and Sunday," state Kracke. The man
ager of the Senators has not made def
inite announcement as to Salem's twirl
lug staff for the Beaver game, but fans
are urging that Myers and Bishop be
filled against the invaders. However,
there is. no friction on this question,
everyone being united In the desire to
itot a pitcher here who can utilize the
Nuptwrt of which the team is capable.
Munager Kraoke is booked for a "ca
nton with Salem business men as to the
plan of closing Sulem business houses
unci shops during the Portland game.
It has also been suggested that the
"leaver players and their wives be
made the gueatB of the oity and taken
on a tour of Sulem's scenic places. This
will he the first visit ot any league
team to the Cherry city and is a triuuxe
to the quality of play put up by the
local club, which was organized only
Ive months ago by "BUldte" Bishop.
"Ole the Swede"
at Heilig Theatre
The original Dave Williams, playing
the part of Ole, in the big three act
flwedish comedy entitled "Ole the
Swede" plays in Portland at the Heilig
theatre for two days, Sunday and Mon
day, August 22 and 23, and comes di
rect from that engagement to the
ttllgh theatre for one night only, Tues
dav. August 24.
. Ole is a sure cure for the. blues, be
ihey caused by love, matrimony, or
business, and the person who can. see
."Ole. the Swede" and not laugh. Is
yet to be found.
' The simplicity and naturalness with
which Dave Williams, the well known
comedian plays Ole brings the laughs
in quick succession every moment that
be is on the stage.
There are many reasons for the
mover falling popularity of this clever
Hwede play and one of them is, that
it is never allowed to fall into low
comedy or horse play.
Tennessee To the Rescue
.. For half a century not much has been heard politically from
Tennesseei The state that formerly played an important role in
affairs and furnished three presidents and many of oiir illustrous
statesmen, has been without influence in national life since the
impeachment of President Andrew Johnson.
Today, however, Tennessee stands redeemed, and enshrined
in the hearts of the women of America for Tennessee, with true
southern gallantry has rushed to the aid of women at the crucial
hour, by ratifying the suffrage amendment to the federal con-
situation, thus giving the 17,000,000 women of America political
equality and a vote in the elections of 1920.
Tennessee is the 36th state to take favorable action and sup
plies the needed two-thirds majority necessary to put the amend
ment into eiiect. Hereafter women will share with men the
responsibilityes of government and help make the great experi
ment oi democracy a success.
The long battle waged for many years by a few courageous
women, greeted for decades with jeers and derision, has been
crowned with success. The cause for which so many brave women
struggled - valiently for years, has triumphed, even though
none of the gallant little band of pioneers survive to see the day
of victory. And its triumph is due to the ideal of a square deal

' Evergreen "
You'd say I'm in the yellow leaf, if you should count my years
but I don t travel much with grief, or slosh around in tears, and
so I work a gorgeous bluff that's based on seemly mirth, and peo
ple say I'm young enough for anything on earth. I have all kinds
of pea-green pains along my legs and back; but when a lot of
Jakes and Janes are calling at my shack, on maladies I waste no
words, I don't discourse of woes; I talk of hams and humming
birds and cheerful thinks like those. A man is old when he be
gins to talk of ailments dire, to sigh all day and toast his shins
before a fitful fire. A man grows old when he is prone to boost
the vanished time, to view the present with a groan, and swear it
is a crime, if l should live eight hundred years, composmir hem-
ful rhymes, as Noah and such propheteers hung on in ancient
times, I'd still be young as I am now, though outwardly defaced,
with heavy furrows on my brow, and whiskers to my waist. For
when I see what old men do, I do the other thing; their vain
