teachers royally at Bethel last Sat

Supervisor Moore reports excellent
enthusiasm in this zone, yet the at

present while in zone No. 2, three
failed to appear.
The next zone meeting will be held

Dallas, Ore., Oct. 30, 1916
When Mr. Chamberlain spoke here
on the 19th of October, some friend
he said, asked him to tell the people
to what extent the European war
contributed to the present prosperity
in the United States.
Hte quoted figures and put them to
gether so as to show that the war
was responsible for just two-thirds
of one per cent of our present pros
perity and then repeated the state
ment. I think a large number of his
audience believe he told the truth and
certainly they were entitled to the
truth. But he didn't. He simply
dodged the truth; on the assumption,
I suppose, that his entire audience
were content to let him do their
thinking for them. As a matter of
fact on seven items only, which do
not include guns and ammunition, our
exports for the year ending June 30,
1916, exceed exports of the same
goods for the year ending June 30,
1914, 250 per cent. In other words,
exports for the year ending June 30,
1914 (7 items) amount to $500,809,-
000. Same items 1916 amounted to
$1,220,218,000, an increase of "$719,-
409,00020 per cent of the total ex
ports. Here are the articles.
Machinery $129,500,000 224,000,000
Breadstuff's 165,300,000 435,696,000
Meat pr'd'ts 143,261,000 266,795,000
Leather goods 57,455,000 146,613,000

Anyone whose memory reaches back
to the winters of 1913-14 and 1914-15
knows that Democratic policies were
causing distress and hunger all over
the United States and relief came on
ly after war orders made business
active. The fact of the matter is
Wilson's whole campaign is based on
deception and keeping the effects of
their policies suppressed.
Only a few night ago J. C. Burke
who is drawing a fat salary under
Wilson, when speaking at Falls City
said the reason the mill there was
closed down was because they -could
get no cars to ship lumber.
What are the facts 1 The Falls City
Lumber company run at a'loss as long
as they could afford to and about
June 24, 1915 ceased operation.
Again this last summer they began
to make preparations to start Sep
tember 15tih, but by that time the
market had slumped and my guess is
they will take a look at the election
returns November 8th before they
start up. I don't claim that the gov
ernment should legislate for the lum
ber business alone, but free trade ef
fects all industries the same way and
we must change that policy at once
if we are to have a prosperity that is
not contingent on the European war.

A few facts like these appeal to his common sense:

get next to all the good tobacco taste. The touch of
salt helps bring out the flavor. It's not sweetened and
flavored to death you don't have to keep grinding and
