THE QUELLS A good place to eat
Potato tmpeotton Compulsory
Potato shippers have found it to
advantage to arrange with the loa!
inspector for a grading demonstration
before sacking spuds for shipment
By proclamation of the governor on
July 30, shipment in carlot or other
wise in excess of ten tons must be in
spected and certified as to U. S.
grades, adopted by Oregon, before
being shipped. Interested parties
may obtain from the inspector or
from the ollice of state mark) t agent,
Courthous building, Portland, copies
of grading rules. In it are" ex
plained in Jetail all necessary inform
ation, including method of stenciling
sacks, definition of terms used in de
scribing grades, and fees charged for
certification. The purpose of the oom
pulsory grading and inspection law is
to increase the demand for Oregon
potatoes at home and in other sta'es
by guaranteeing a standard, honest
pack recognized as such by dealers
and consumers thruout the country.
For further information address R.F.
Wilbur, State Inspector, Milton, Ore.
Robert H. Strong, who was state
chairman of the Hoover food campaign
in Oregon in 1921 and who is acting
in the same capacity for the present
campaign to raise $100,000 in Oregon
for starving German children, reports
a good response from all parts of
Oregon. He says: "It is quite remark
able the response which Oregonians
are making to the appeal for German
children. Even before we have ap
proached anyone for money, the sub
scriptions are coming in, both large
and small amounts. It does not seem
to make any difference to our people
what nationality, race or creed that
Children belong to, they only have to
be convinced that there is starvation,
hunger and sickness, and the sub
scriptions come in.
"There is this interesting phase
about this campaign, that all the ex
penses connected with it are being
borne by certain individuals in the
East and that one hundred cents of
every dollar subscribed throughout the
country will go toward the purchase
"In Germany, the food will be dis
tributed by the American Quakers
through the medium of kitchens. We
have received a copy of a typical menu
which is being served to these ehil
dr n which represents one hot meal a
day and costs 2 cents a meal."
STATE BEING ORGANIZED
Oregon to Help Save Starving Ger
The American committee for relief
of German children, state headquar
ters for which are in room 715 Corbett
building, Portland, now has commit
tees in various sections of the state,
especially in the Willamette valley.
Fully organized cities include Oregon
City, Salem, Eugene, Ashland, Med
ford. lloseburg and others, and as
rapidly as possible, other communities
will be organized.
The state is asked by Major-General
Henry T. Allen, well known because
he was the American commander of
troops on the Rhine during the occupa
tion, to raise $100,000, half in Portland
and half out-state, and these commit
tees will look after the work in their
respective communities. There are
2,000,080 little ones facing starvation
and American aid alone will save
them, according to official adviceb.

WHAT POSY PETALS TELL
"Every Daisy in the Deli Knows the
Secret, Knows It
Probably most people have, at some
period of their lives, plucked a daisy !
and, thinking of one of the oppiMjite
sex, picked the petals of the llower
one by one, saying at the same time,
"He loves me; he loves me not."
If the last petal picked coincides j
with "be loves me," all is well. If with
"he loves me not," all is wrong.
There are several modifications of
this superstition of daisy picking, but
it seems to owe its origin to the Scan
dinavians, observes London Tit-Bits
The very name of the llower chose;;
for this incantation Is significant of
the origin of the superstition day's

reason of its being so named Is ap
(Trey J a, the goddeaa of love in the
old Scandinavian mylliologien, and
whose cult spread over northern Ger
many, had her home in the sun ami
she thus became associated In the
minds of her worshipers with the

was most fitting to consult the daif-j
upon mutters of love.
The altars of Freyjn have long
crumbled to dust, hut young men ami
maidens still consult her symbolic
flower to read the hearts of their loved
ones, believing, In the words of the
popular song, that "Every daisy In the
dell knows the secret, knows It well."

Region of Caverns Near Trieste.
The Kaflt is a curious region of
calcareous rocks in the neighborhood
of Trieste. It has long been famous
for its countless caverns, which ure
more numerous there, perhaps, than
any other district of a similar area
elsewhere in the world. The results
of a careful exploration of these caves
and abysses have been published by
Hoegan. The number Included in the
chart prepared by him is no less than
347, All of these have been explored
and their exact position r gorously de
lermlned. Some are dry caverns,
some are the underground channels of
streams. Hundreds of other similar
cuves exist in the regions bordering
on the Karst, In Catnlola, Istrla, Cro

Potash In New Jersey.

ash that could be ndned by open pit
methods. Used at the rate at which
potash was formerly Imported Into
this country, that quantity would sup
ply the needs of the United States for
nearly 1,000 years. Four companies
have, It appears, undertaken to pro
duce potash from greensands, and small
quantities of the product have been
made and sold, but the work Is not
yet on a commercial basis.
