its use and the methods followed have
varied to so great an extent that
much seed has been damaged. A
great deal of seed "has been treated so
ineffectively that failure ot control

growers to use other materials. It is
thought that the new label will result
in much better methods of seed treat

not provoked but that has struck her
to the heart with it mailed fist and
has aroused her in the name of her
duty toward humanity ; it is, in a word
that which now welds in a gneat em

light of the stars and ours filled with
the splendor of the sun and makes of
them, one beneficent constellation.
But this moment has come in which
I find myself in relation not with
a great multitude of a gigantic col-
effectionate contact with men whom
we love individually, with spirits
that are to us real favorites; with
each and all of you, valliant and good
seamen of our great sister, toward
whom I feel an irresistible impulse
of genuine affection.
And this constitutes, my friends,
the most intimate of brotherhoods. If
the fraternity of our countries com

which inspires in me such warmth of
affection and interest in each and ev

thing higher and more enduring
our common universal Father, our
Father which is in Heaven, and who
is one with the Son whom we all wor

I wish to speak to you of Him on
this' occasion, my friends nad brothers

as the most precious remembrance of
my country, living and eternal words.
Cherish them as precious jewels, in
the depths, in the most intimate and

Fear That Shortage Would Prevent
aual Canning Operations la
Set Aside.
regon's housewives and canning
plant managers will be able to con
duct .their usual canning operations
mis year so lar as the supply of su
gar is concerned. In a letter to Di
rector O. D. Center, of the O. A. C.
Extension Service, W. B. Ayer, Fed
eral Food Administrator .of Oregon,
says that provision has been made for
enough sugar to do the usual amount
of canning in the usual way.
,A very general sentiment that it
would be necessary on account of the
jiugar situation either to do less can
ning or to put the fruit up without
sugar has occasioned considerable an
xiety. The annuoncement is design
ed to set at rest this misgiving and
encourage housewives, club workers
to go ahead with their plans ' for
putting up considerable quantities of
fruits for their on and local uses.
The government has already an
nounced that it will place large orders
with the big canneries, and if the re
sident population is to get its normal
canned fruit supply during the year
it will have to put up enough for local
use. This is additionally necessary
to save transportation, , which may
render it ' quite difficult for a local
community to get canned products
from a distance. 1 - -

John Q. Nash, of Buena Vista, Was

John O. Nash, of Buena Vista.who
was with the United Statets Pacific
Fleet that passed through the Pana

present time, is confined in the U. S.
Navy Hospital at Norfolk, Virginia,
writes to his parents, Mr. and Mrs.

delivered by Dr. Juan Zorrilla de San
Martin, president of the popular com
mittee for the reception of the U. S.
Pacific Fleet upon their arrival at
Montevideo, which we reprint at the
request of Mr. Nash's many friends.
The speech is one of the best that we
have read in a long time, and the Dr.
is one of the distinguished and ablest
Spanish speakers known. The speech
follows:
Montevideo, Sunday July 15, 1917.

Cri-
tomed blessing.
I had the honor of voicing the sen
timent of the Uruguayan people when
they manimously, overflowing with
acclamations, thronged on land and
sea to meet you. From the balcony
of the United States Legation I said
to forty thousand of my fellow coun
trymen there met in the public street
that it was a splendid truth which
they joyously felt and loudly pro
claimed; that we Uraguayans, sons
of Artigas, are brothers of the Amer
icans, sons of Washington; but that
we are brothers not so much by the
geographical Jor m.-lterial unSty of
the Continent in which we live, but by
something much deeper, something
that springs from the very roots of
our being; because we Uruguayans J you will feel pass among the constel-

and North Americans, like all the oth
er peoples of America, are sons of one
common mother, the alma mater De
mocracy, mother at once of Peace, Li
berty and Justice.'
It is the breath, indeed, of that
lective person but in immediate and ' good God, toward your fellowmen and
towards yourselves.
That is what we wish to be to you
at this moment; the friends of your
souls who give you, among the trans
itory things, the living word which
cannot pass away; friends who may
be to you in place of mothers, sisters,
and those who love you most intense
ly, It is well to remember friends,
that among the many who show you
attentions? in a more or' less collec
tive and superficial fashion, there re
main in Uruguany those who have
loved you individually and who will
follow you with effection after you
have abandoned our hospitable har
bor; remember, young and viliant
sailors of the democratic fleet, that
some there are who, on remembering
this group of fair and youthful heads
uniformed in white, will lift their
spirits to the Father which, is in Hea
ven, and wll pray that on every one
may come His omnipotent protection.
His illuminating inspirations, His for
titude and His peace; they will ask
that He guard you all from the moral
and materal dangers that rise to meet
you, and that He return you well and
safe to your beloved homeland bet
ter even and stronger than when you
set out from her shores!
And thus it will be, my friends, be
cause the way you take is the way
of virtue and heroism,' , That star
spangled banner of your country', un
der whose shadow you sail the seas,
is a sacred thing, as. you well know; v

virtuous wasnington, ana to wnom
the framers of your Constitution
raised their devout invocations; that
banner will inspire you always with
sentiments of valor and heroism.and
it will lead you in the way of victory.
But do not forget, friends, that the
most glorious of victories, that which
is most worthy of your flag, will be
that whi'h you gain over your own
selves, by being strong in character,
men of virtue and of heroic will.
I recall at this moment that at the
beginning of this war when invaded
Belgium saw her youth fall sacrificed
in the vanguard of her heroic resis
tence, the Belgian mothers cried out
in anguish, but firm as the Christian
martyrs, to the great Cardinal Mer
cier, Archbishop of Malinas: "Are
these are sons who die on the field,
martyrs for the faith?" Remember
for your supreme consolation, the il
lustrious prelate, deeply moved, but
serene, answered the mothers kneel
ing before him. "Remember that
many of those young men your sons
who possibly might not have had the
valor to live well, have had it to die
well!" They have been happy to die
for their country.
And you too be thus, my friends,
living by your country and for her
be worthy of life and you will be
worthy of a glorious death death
which awaits us all on the horizon
more or less near, the same in war
as in peace; be noble characters; be
strong and valiant as men and you
will be such as soldiers; kuow how to
vanquish the enemies within you and
you will conquor those without how
ever strong; be good sons of your
Father which is in Heaven and so,and
only so, will you be worthy sons of
your American Homeland which is on
the earth, of the noble lady Demo
cracy, our common mother in whose
defense you have taken up arms, and
which is nothing else than virtue, self
denial in favor of the social well-being,
the sacrifice of the personal to
the collective will, on the part of the
great majority of citizens.
I am very sure that you will al
ways be such for the glory of our
democratic America. For this rea
son I speak to you In this fatherly
manner, because I know well that I
am not scattering seed in your souls,
but watering rather that which isal
ready there, sown by your parents and
full of germinating life. Many, and
most happy, are the memories left in
Montevideo by the notable and gra
( Continued to Page 8.)
I come to bid you farewell, -my
friends, we shall probably not meet
again on earth. Will you keep my
remembrance, the greetings of anoy
mous friends who have loved you in
Montevideo and whom you have met
on your passing visit to this good land
of Uraguay?.
This remembrance may become
vague, or even vanish; the winds of
the seas, the vivid presence of other
lands, will disipate it like a vapor.
But there is one tie, one only, which
the winds will not dispel. When on
the starlit night in the midst of the.
infinite ocean, you pass the slow
hours of the night watch at the foot
of your formidable cannon more than
once you will lift your eyes to the fir
mament above, and more than once
I lations the memories of the absent
country for whose glory you struggle,
and they will fill your hearts with
peace, with energy, with valor; you
will see there the images of those
who love you most in all the world
