No. 34, 1917
Business District of New York Uses
Six Feet of Telephone Wire to
London's One.
The nerves of the skyscraper are the
telephone wires, of course. And Inas
much as progress In evolution Is meas
ured by complex nervous development,
It Is natural that New York's down
town, where business, the highest form
of social biology, has attained its full
est development, should be an enor
mous spider's web of telephone wires.
The per capita consumption of tele
phone wire In New York is six times
as much as in London, Simeon Strun
sky writes in Harper's. That rep
resents the relative nervous in
tensity of business in New York and
In London.
Some such excess of wiring I sus
pect In the skyscrapers of downtown.
There are hundreds and thousands of
rooms, and In every room one or more
men with their mouths and ears to
the telephone. It is all cellular parti
tions and wire ganglions reaching out
to Chicago, perhaps, or San Francisco ;
wires to the stock exchange around
the corner, wires to the assistant in
the adjoining room, wires to the heart
of the dictaphone into which business
is being dictated and from which busi
ness will travel to the cars of the
stenographer who will transfer It to
pnper. Our ghostly tourist will con
clude that modern business Is a mat
ter of conversation.
Downtown, inside of its tens of
thousands of skyscraper cells, is thus
terribly busy about what? So far as
the eye can see, about nothing in par
ticular. A man with a telephone at
his elbow, a flat-topped desk with a
metal basket holding a dozen letters,
perhaps, a photograph of the man's
wife in a sliver frame at one end of
the desk, and that Is all. But if the
cell is a large one, sometimes reaching
the dimensions of an entire floor in a
skyscraper block, the desks, tele
phones, metal baskets and phonographs
are indefinitely multiplied. The sub
stantialities of business are not there
the steel, wheat, cotton, bullion, the
beams, casks, boxes and bales which
you recall being hauled toward quaint
little wharves on toy trucks driven by
men in Jumpers and shovel hats In the
pictures in your school geography la:
beled commerce. By externals there
Is no way of telling whether the man
at the desk is engaged in selling stocks
and bonds, or woolen remnants, or
railway accessories or trusts and
mergers, or theater tickets. There is
lacking the concrete symbolism of the
old counting room the heavy ledgers,
whose bulk suggested the raw mate
rials of traffic, the clerks on their high
stools, the bustle of orders given and
taken. The heavy ledgers have been
replaced by filing cabinets, whose pur
pose seems as much decorative as use
ful. Your business office might as
well be the catalogue room of a col
lege library.
If Your Skin Itches
Just Use Resinol
No remedy can honestly promise' to
heal every case of eczema or similar
skin ailment. But Resinol Ointment,
aided by Resinol Soap, gives such
Instant relief from the Itching and

Some spring grain brought to Al
bany this week yielded between 35 and
30 bushels to the acre and was excep

on an island, where the soil was more
moist than most land, and it is con
ceded that spring grain, as a whole,
will not be anywhere near so good.
Attorney General Brown rules that
the State Highway commission may
enter into a contract with the Warren
Construction company, or any other
company, for construction of roads,
after bids have been rejected, the com

ter 337, laws of 1917, is the basis for
the ruling.
The Utah-Idaho Sugar company has

of 255 acres, for $25,000. There are
five acres of orchard and the property

the growth of the business justify it in
the future.
Deputy Sheriff Frank Hopkins, of
Canyonville, seeks to be appointed
state agent to stop importation of
liquor from California. In the event
of his appointment Mr. Hopkins says
he will ask the county to grant permis

automobiles without resorting to the
use of firearms.
Because of high prices of feed small
flocks of poultry in the state are being
reduced at an alarming rate, according
to E. J. McClanahan, president of the
Oregon State Poultry Breeders associ

people in the cities are disposing of
all their chickens, and that poultry
raisers who had 180 chickens last win
ter will average but 100 chickens dur
ing the coming winter, according to
present indications.
Warden Murphy, denies a report
that there is dissatisfaction at the
state penitentiary which threatens
general outbreak among the men.
Last week about 20 of the men com
plained as to the quality of their
breakfast and refused to eat it," said
the warden. "They were sent to
their cells, with instructions to remain
there until more tractable, and they
were back at work next day. If there
is trouble brewing at the prison I
know nothing of it "
Attorney General Brown has held

Strikes on Puget Sound, unless ter

Market men admit that their gravest
worry now is the impending box shortage.
Decrease in Acreage Due to Prohibi
tion Wave Causes High Prices
Foreign Buyers Look Here.
Puyallup Hops can't be bought in
the valley this week, according to
James Pincus, hop broker, who has
been trying to keep up with the boosts
in the hop market lately. No prices
are being quoted under 30 cents, and it
is reported that 32c cents has been
offered. At that, though, the farmers
are expecting still more, and as a re
sult no options can be bought at any
price. Buyers from Oregon interested
in the local crop are adding to the
speculation. An example of the
change in the market is the price
quoted on last year's crops, a little of
which is still unsold. Two months ago
it was quoted at 6 cents, and now the
offer is 20 cents. Alderton farmers
are expecting the market to reach 25
"The acreage is decreasing faster
than the demand," says Hugh Herren
in explanation of the recent soar in
prices. With only 60 per cent of the
acreage and 70 per cent of the normal
crop ready, the shortage in the valley
is apparent. This is true of "Oregon,
California and the Eastern hop fields.
Mr. Pincus says that the brewing of
beer has not been on the decrease all
over the country, and in addition, for
eign breweries, who depended on Ger
man and English hops, are now forced
to come to America for them.
This adds to the market and is help
ing the farmer who has grown hops
this year to make a good price for his
crop. In spite of the recent advances,
Mr. Pincus reports, that probably 60
per cent of the valley crop has already
been sold at less than 11 cents.
Farmers who have already plowed
up their hop fields are not likely to put
them in again, due largely to the un
certainty of the market and the spread
of the prohibition movement. The
difference is apparent when figures
quoted show that Oregon raised 110,-
000 bales last year and this year it is
estimated at 40,000. Washington can
only expect about 30,000 bales this
year and California is 37,000 bales be
hind previous years.
Make Survey of Seed Wheat.
Pullman, Wash. A seed survey of
all the counties of Eastern Washington
is being made by Professor E. G
Shafer, of the farm crops division of
the school of agriculture of the State
College. The purpose of the survey is
to ascertain approximately how much
seed wheat will be available in the
counties this fall, so that the college
will be in a position to answer queries
directed to it as to where seed wheat
may be procured. The high prices for
grain are expected to tend to reduce
the amount of seed wheat.

Who Cares Now
Yoa recklesB men and women wbo
are pestered with corns and who have
at least once a week invited an awful
death from lockjaw or blood polsoo
are now told by a Cincinnati authority
to use a drug called freezone, which
the moment a few drops are applied
to any corn or callous the soreness Is
relieved and soon the entire corn or
callous, root and all, lifts off with the
Freezone dries the moment It Is ap
plied, and simply shrivels the corn or
callous without Inflaming or even Ir
ritating the surrounding tissue or
skin. A small bottle of freezone will
cost very little at any of the drug
stores, but will positively rid one's
feet of every hard or soft corn or
hardened callous. If your druggist
