Jackson and Josephine counties
bare Joined hands with a' spirit that
is admirable for the reception and
entertainment of the National Edi
torial Association party that is go
ing to be shown that greatest of
Oregon . wonders Crater Lake
this month. Two hundred and fifty
of the nation's editors from 37 states
will be taken from Portland to Med
ford in a special train, from Med
ford to tbe Lake in motor cars and
back to Ashland and then returned
Medford, lAshland and Grants Pass
bare pooled their resources in be
half of this excursion that will re
sult In Southern Oregon receiving
several hundred thousand lines' of
publicity all over this country. While
Grants Pass Is not so directly inter
ested in the trip as the other two
cities, 'because tbe party does not
stop there, the people of that little
city are big and broad and have not
only agreed to provide 15 cars for
the trip to the crater and return,
but will assist in financing the var
ious entertainment features. County
.courts and city councils have opened
the municipal purses freely, with a
realization of the tremendous bene
fits to be derived from a visit of a
party of this character. ' The com
mercial 'organizations of the three
towns are playing ball together, and
have prepared a reception for the
editors that will make Southern Ore
gon talked about from one end of
the country to the other.
Such cooperation and enterprise
Is ideal, perhaps unusual, and the
group of Southern Oregon cities is
entitled to all of the praise and pub
licity that It certainly will obtain.

"Begin with the fiv. Mg packers
and give every profiteer the gaff
hook" seems to be. the order of the
day. A fine program and. If car
ried out to the letter, will hush to
a certain extent the constant demand
for higher wages.
Have you noticed the Bartlett
pears toeing shipped from Grants
Pass this season? They are fine
lookers and are averaging up well,
except those from orchards where
the fruit was not thinned.
"Coffee may go to a dollar a
pound" the public is warned. This
in spite of the fact that the ware
bouses in Brazil are said to be burst
ing with the precious berries.
Ashland finally won a ball game
from the Grants Pass team last
Sunday tout It required "imported"
professionals from California to turn
the trick. Not much honor In that.
The fruit grower is smiling, but
he has nothing on the man with an

DRY WEATHER AFFECTS
Senator J. C, Smith and Represen
tative C. A. Bidler have a signed ar

the matter of endorsing the woman
suffrage amendment Is so pressing,
the state is able to pay for a short
session; or better still, the neces
sary amount could easily be raised
toy popular subscription among wom
an suffrage enthusiasts. We believe
the Doctor and Mr. Sidler are jus
tified in the stand they have taken.

Portland, Aug. 7. In many parts
of Oregon peaches and apples are
small at present because of lack of
moisture and insufficient thinning,
according to the weekly Weather re
port and crop bulletin of the local
weather bureau., irrigated apples,
however, are good, and peaches are
ripening in increasing quantities,
the report says. Bartlett pears are
ripening and a few have 'been ship
ped from Josephine county. Picking
of blackberries continues.
The past week was relatively cool
in the western counties though there
were a few, high temperatures In the
southern and eastern counties. There
was . considerable cloudiness and
some light sprinkles of rain. There
was little wind and the humidity was
higher than usual, resulting in a
lessened rate of evaporation. Water
in springs and streams continues to
decrease. The shortage of irrigating
and stock water Is quite serious In
Stacking of the first crop of al
falfa has been completed in Des
chutes county, the yield being good.
Cutting of the second crop is com
pleted in many localities, the crop
being generally good except where
there was insufficient water. Some
third crop has been cut In the warm
er districts. The late cuttings are
being materially feduceiPby tack of
water. Pastures and ranges are
drying up. -There Is still good feed
on- the higher ranges tout elsewhere
It Is becoming scarce. Stock Is still
in good condition over most of the
state tout in some sections Is being
moved out owing to lack of feed and
INSURES LONG WEAR
The best and longest wearing' tire
for the least amount of money to tie
spent In the long run was the slogan
of the Thermoid Rubtoer company
wtum It set out to build a tire for
motorists of the world." mil J Geo.
R. Riddle, of the Rogue River Hard
ware Company, distributor for Ther
moid crollde compound tires. "After
several months of experimenting
the chemists and tire experts at the
Thermoid factory discovered a com
pound which they called crollde.
This discovery Is compounded with
rubber and adds greatly to the life
of the tire.
'W few Thermoid specifications
will show the superiority of the
Thermoid tire. In many sizes one
more ply of fabric ,1s put than in
standard tires. For example: 3V4
Inch tires are built with five plies
of fabric and 4 sizes with seven
plies. The fabric used In Thermoid
tires is woven from 1 7 Vi ounce long
staple Sea Island cotton and be-'
tween ea'ch layer of fabric is a spe
cial blend of crollde compound rub
ber. The cushion is made of a
special blend of crollde compound
rubber as well as the breaker strip,
which Is made of specially woven fa
bric. "The tread, which must be espe
cially strong, is of crollde compound
rubber, extra thick, and because of
crollde, tough and resilient. To add
to the strength of the tread a spe
cial TherStiold Interlocking arrange
ment has 'been applied, holding the
tread firmly In place.
As to the guarantee given with
Thermoid tires, we believe It Is the
best offered, being 6000 mles on all
sizes with the exception of the Ford
sizes, on which a guarantee of 7500
miles is given. The tire is construct
ed to stand all hard knocks and Is
especially resistant to stone bruises,
which have been the ruination of
many tires." z

and not ruu out seed stock Is at the
root of the little potato problem In
Oregon. These diseases may be car
ried In the seed, In the ground or
by' Insects. Leaf curl and mosaic,
both of which prevent the plant
foods ordinarily manufactured In the
leaf from reaching ths tuber, are the
worst forms of the trouble. Spindle
sprout, though not a paYaslttc dl
tease, likewise causes Immense losses
In yield. AH these are more or less
preventable. The agricultural col
lege experiment station will soon un
dertake an exhaustive study or these
aliments and their control under the
