Drier and Fruit
Destroyed By Fire
A small fruit drier adjoining
the J. W. Cahill home in Eagle
Creek was completely destioyed
by fire last Thursday afternoon,
the building having become over­
heated and with its contents of
50 gallons of pitted cherries, a
total loss.
Had it not been for a rain fall­
ing at the time, it is likely the
flames would have reached the
house, but a wet roof confined
the conflagration to the one buil­
ding.
SOME REASONS WHY
WHEAT MUST BE SAVED
**A M a n C a n n o t T h in k , W o r k or F ig h t
W hen He lo H u n g r y ”— W e M u ot
Feed O u r So ld ie rs.
" W e have the p rese rv atio n of the
world on our hands.
Every single
living hum an being la this republic,
from ocean to ocean, should m ake It
his or her special p urpose to save
food.”
T hese a re the words of E. F. Cullen,
persoual re p re s e n ta tiv e of H e rb e rt C.
Hoover, in a re c e n t address.
“ Men will resist any power but the
power of s ta rv a tio n ,” said Mr. Cullen.
“ H unger in the final analysis, is the
only force th a t can w eaken a nation
and demoralize an arm y.
Food is
stre n g th , and w ithout a perpetual sup­
ply of strength, th e world can stand
in d a n g e r of to ttering, w eakening and
falling into u tte r chaos. A m an can­
not think, work or fight if he is hun­
gry.
"T h e allies today a r e practically
wholly dependent upon th e United
S ta te s for food.
Upon this nation
restò the responsibility of preserving
the world from P russlanlsm . This is
the task of the people of this nation—
to produce and save food enough to
keep a steady s tre a m of essential sup­
plies moving tow ards th e front so
long as it shall be n e c essa ry to wage
this war. If a t any tim e we fail in
this, we m ust Inevitably go down, with
the allies, to defeat. T his Is no ex­
aggeration, but a serious f a c t It is
the purpose of the U nited S ta te s Food
A dm inistration to bring the realiza­
tion of this fact hom e to every Ameri­
can man, woman and child, and to en­
list the Individual aid of our hundred
million people in producing and sav­
ing food. T he Food A dm inistration
is not asking you to eat less; it only
urges th a t you s u b s titu te one n u tri­
tious food for a n o th e r equally n u tri­
tious food, thus saving th e vital s ta ­
ples needed by our a rm ie s and the
arm ies and peoples of th e allies. We
must, during the next th re e m onths,
save w heat especially. Our surplus
has a lready been shipped abroad, and
a hundred million bushels more a re
needed. W hen you eat a slice of bread
less, omit the c ra c k e rs with your soup,
or otherw ise c onserve on w heat prod­
ucts, you a re c o ntributing tow ards th e
hundred million bushels needed over
there by our fighting men and th e
exhausted people of Belgium. F ra n ce
and England who have for more th a n
three years been bearing the b runt of
this war, which is our war. Keep tnis
in mind, and bring it before the minds
of your th o u ghtless friends and neigh­
bors.”

Furlough From From
(■apt. W a l t e r Whitcomb of
Portland, son of A. 0. Whitcomb
of (iarfield is in Portland this

Cascade County bi l l hearing,
when h e presented important
figures r e l a t i n g to the tax
moneys, which had been collect­
ed by his firm, Whitfield Whit­
comb Co., expert accountants of
Portland.
Capt. Whitcomb enlisted early
in the war and succeeded in be­
ing transferred to France last
year, where he has attended to
important work for the Ameri­
can army forces, being promoted
to his present office, and is now
in this country on a special miss­
ion. expecting to return to the
front shortly.
THROWS POLLEN OVER BEES
N a tu r e ’« U se of the M o u n ta in L a u re l

a b le Device«.
Flop I und aw ay go the little s ta ­
m ens of the m ountain laurel ami throw
pollen over th e bee which alights upon
them. T h e n a tu ra list sees here oue
of th e most rem a rk a b le devices In all
n a tu r e for compelling an insect to c a r­
ry pollen. T h e lover of n a tu re sees
In the m ountain laurel one of the most
beuuttful of the common woodland
flowers, says E dw ard Bigelow In
“Boys’ Life.”
T he corolla la gaucer-shuped> with
ten little pita u e a r the edge, and light­
ly cuught in each of these little pits
la th e u n th e r a t th e end of the elastic
filament. T h is n atu ral thing seems to
grow In a n u n n a tu ra l munner, but do
you know of any o th er plant th a t ac­
tually grow s in distorted or strained
position, o r p u ts its own self in an un­
com fortable a n d «trained position
from which It Is glad to be released
when th e first Insect comes along and
sets It loose?
T h e whole m echanism Is like a h a ir
trigger.
I t Is so carefully a djusted
thut even a slight Jar will sometimes
, set it loose. Shaking an en tire hush
i releases g re a t num bers of these fila­
ments, a n d flop, flop, flop they leap out
of th e p its and the a n th e rs throw their
pollen everywhere.
T he bee which
visits th e mountuln laurel m ust feel
th a t th e tim es ure prosperous, since he
Is show ered with golden pollen which
he c a rr ie s to the next flower to f e r­
tilize th e seeds.
M o stly Nude.
l
Most of the Indians In the Amazon
valley go about In a completely nude
stute, exeept on ceremonial occasions,
when they bedeck themselves with or­
nam ental feather-work, such as a kind
of kilt, necklet, bracelets, head-dress
and even large mantles made of fe a th ­
ers held together by liber cords. They
find an ubundunce of raw m aterial In
the' m u ltitu d e of muny-colored, bright-
hued p a rro ts and other blrda that
sw arm In those forests and which, not
to Injure the feathers, they shoot with
blunt a rro w s or with small d a rts from
a long blowpipe. The women ure very
skilled In weaving this fea th er-ap ­
parel, and In the museums of 1’aru,
Ido de J a n e iro and Hao Paulo can be
seen ela b o rate mantles, head-dresses
and kilts of heuutlful designs and col­
ors. W hen a rnuldeu has fixed her af-
factions on a warrior and wishes him
to m ake her his wife she weaves one
of these ornamental g arm ents and
offers It to hliu as a hint of her desire
and a t th e same time a proof of her
skill.
