Tho factors and processes of the
Industrial world of America n-n
closely inter-dependent. Everything
that Is bought hus Its bearing on thv
employment of a long lino of workers
going back to the ultimate source of
tho raw material from which tho :ut
Jclo is made. At the far end of that
lino stands the man or woman who
obtains that raw material from tho
earth for Uio earth or products of
tho earth Is tho source of practically
all raw materials.
Next stand the workers who ad
vance the raw material through tho
various proccsses'of development and
manufacture. Than the men and wo
men who transport tho article and
distribute It and finally thoso who
cell it to the ultimate consumer.
Whon you buy foolishly, unneces
sarily or extravagantly, you disrupt
that long lino of workers upon whom
tho community and tho nation de
pends for Its necessary supplies. By
Just so much, you Injure yourself
and overy other consumer which
means every cltlzou of the United
States. When you buy wls61y, In
telligently and reasonably, what you
need, you do your share to keep tho
workers of tho nation employed in
healthy, normal, essential proces
sion of production.
Thrift is not parsimony. Thrift
is a necessity for the improving of
conditions which now face this
nation. To spend money foolishly,
unnecessary or to no good purposo
is to disrupt tho production system
and throw away financial and mater
ial resources sorely needed to re
duce tho cost of necessities. On the
other hand, It Is not necessary to re
frain from buying useful and neces
sary things. The endeavor to get
along without tho things actually
needed is not thrift but parsimony.
Thrift consist's of wise and intel
ligent buying, wlso and Intelligent
use of what is bought, wise and in
telligent saving and wise nnd safo In
vestment, such Investments as .War
Savings Stamps, Treasury Savings
Certificates and Liberty Bonds. By
following those precepts of thrift you
will do your pat to restore healthy
normal processes of industry and
commerce and solve the problem of
the high cost of living.
Last summer Director Mather of
the national park service camo
through Bend on a path finding ex
pedition. He was laying out a
course over which uutomobilfs
might travel while making the
rounds of tho national parks-a-park-to-park
trip. According to
plans outlined while here tourists
would bo taken from the Yosemlte
to Crater lako and then through
Central Oregon, by way of the Col
umbia highway, to Rainier park; or
Jn reverse order.
Later, and 'only a few weeks ago,
a number' of men who are interest
ed in tho Yellowstone park and
other hotel enterprises were in
Bend and looking over the same,
route Mr. Mather bad taken. And
now wo are getting the results of
that trip. They appear in an arti
cle in the Oregon Journal by Fred
Lockley who accompanied tho sec
Mr. Lockley quotes Harry Child,
a momber of the party, as followm
"Wo want at tho earliest possi
ble moment to put on a line of
stages that will jog along at about
200 miles a day between these
parks. We want to pick our passen
gers up at tho Rocky Mountain
park, noar Denver, tafco them by
Btago to Yellowstone park, on to
glacier park, thence to Mount Ruin
ier, on down to Portland, and make
u side trip up the Columbia river
highway and make tho loop, trip
around Mount Hood, when you peo
ple havo It ready for travel; then
down through tho Willamette,
Umpqua and Roguo river valleys
to Crater Lake; thonco to Yosemito
and the Big .Trees, on to-the Grand
Canyon, and back to Denver. It
can bo done within a year or so, If
tho gaps In the highway whore tho
roads are now bad, am paved,"
.The particular mutter to bo ob
served here is that apparently Cen
tral Oregon, after being includod
in tho first plans is now to be
passed up, and tho park-to park cars
are to bo sent through the west
tilde valleys. A dotour is to he
made to take In, Mount Hood, but
tlio ears will then turn back to tho
Willamette valley. Mr. Child
makes his plan without trying tho
valley roads. Ho rldos over Tho
Dnilcs-Callforula highway and then
selects tho other without question.
It cannot bo an bad us this.
All of which suggests thrtt the
sooner wo get the Highway com
mission to bullet us Tho Dalles
California highway tho sooner wo
shall assuro ourselves of the travel
that ought to como this way.
A BIRD REFUGE.
An article In a recent number
of the Natlonnl geographic magazine
told of tho quantities of wator fowl
that made their homo on Lnko Mor
rltt In a city park In Oaklaud, Cali
fornia. Tho birds have been protected
for n number of years and food hus
been provided-for thorn. Undor this
treatment they have multiplied
rapidly nnd havo lost much of their
Instinctive fear of man. In the ar
ticle pictures are shown of flocks
of ducks crowding the lawns ni tho
edge of tho water and almost eat
ing from the hand.
It's a long way from Oakland to
Bend but the annual appearance of
ducks on tho river above the power
dam recalls tho artlclo and lends
to the question why wo cannot have
something of the same sort here.
Theso birds, like nil others, aro
beautiful things. Their presence on
our river give. the touch of anima
tion und life that add greatly to
Its charm. If numbers of them
lived on the river through the sum
mer and the fall it would bo n real
attraction both for visitors and
Of course, the reason why there
aro not more birds here is the
fact that no sooner docs ono ap
pear on the river than' someone
hurries out with his shot gun and
tries for an easy meal. A duck
is harried up and down river until
it Is killed or decides to seek
another resting place, nnd we see
It no more. If public sentiment
were set against this pursuit of our
visitors it Is probable thnt more
would come and once here would
stay. Talks in the schools, publi
city given to the Idea by tho Rod
and Gun club, a few signs on tho
river front ought to go 'far toward
this end and would be well worth
As a matter of fact, those who
go gunning-on k tho '.river hero In
town nrjjjiirobably violating a city
ordinance which forbids tho shoot
ing of fire arms within the city
limits, but our police officials can
not bo expected to patrol the river
front and unless persons with
knowledge of tho violations report
the offenders they will go unpun
ished. A few convictions might
help to establish tho authority of
this particular law but public senti
ment Is of moro weight for the end
Still another reason why there
should be no shooting on the river,
especially In the vicinity of tho
Kentucky avenue foot bridge, is tho
number of children passing bnck
and forth between their homes nnd
the Kenwood school, using the foot
bridge and following tho paths on
tho bank. Then, too, there uro
houses on the bank and passing
automobiles that aro endangered by

A TAX COMPARISON.
In connection with our municipal
finances It Is of Interest to obsorvo
tho situation at Klamath Falls
whom tho authorities nro Just bo
ginning to collect, figures prepara
tory to sotting tho tux levy for tho
coming year. According to an In
torvlow with tho city pullco judge,
tho official corresponding to our city
recorder, published In the Klamath
Humid, 'the city will require for
all funds n total of $83,840. Among
tho items which go to ninke up tho
total are tho following: general
fund, $19,415; street fund, $10,296;
flro department, $4,350; light nnd
water, $3,015; Interest fund, $27,
919; library, $1,020; duflclt, $11,
600. To produce tho needed amount
n .tax levy of nbout 23 mills Is
said to bo necessary. How this lovy
would compare with, tho Bond city
lovy fo,r tho coming year Im un
important. Furthermore tho fac
tor of I'olatlvo assessed valuation
enters nnd cannot bo easily deter
mined. Tho Important thing, us
wo havo said so often In this
column, Is how much Is being spent
In dollars und cents. This compar

Whether Bend Is contenting It
self with 'smaller expenditure on
Its munlclnl activities or, Is doing
tho work moro economically, or Is
not having so much work done as
Klamath wo do not know. It n coma
clear however, that in making Its
levy last summer, high as It was
in comparison with earlier yonrs.
Bend voted only enough to provide
Itself with, necessary running ex
penses, nnd that, oven with tho de
ficit added, its levy Is still far be
low that of other towns of the same

Tho Commercial club would do
well to Interest Itself in the appoint

wilt Hat tho people of Bond In Janu

any census padding or nny attempt
to find population in excess of the
actual number but, on tho other
hand, we all aro eager to have every
man. wonlan and .child counted, Tho
enumerators nro nono too well paid
and the job Is fairly difficult, if they

tho most earnest spirit nnd resolu
tion to list everybody somo will bo
loft out. If, by helping to find com
petent enumerators, tho Commercial
club insures a completo count it will
be achieving a part of Its purpose.

Three yenrs of feeding Investigations
by Professor Dougherty at tho Davis
State Farm with high protein ani

according to tho report of tho Col
logo of Agriculture of this State,
that Jt makes little difference what
kinds of such feeds nro fed so long
as tho ration contains somo animal
feed, has an approximately correct
nutritive ration nnd contains feeds
suitable to poultry und properly pro
portioned so as to be palatable and

It Is needed. It Is interesting to read
that whore fowls had frco nccess nt

t'altlo aro especially ndnpted to convert thu coarse plant materials of no

to lord concentrates alone to cows for thulr woll being physlcully. It wouM
not ho advisable. Roughages best adapted tonud meeting tho demands
of tho dairymen aro hays from thu logumu plants. Tho most Important '
of these found upon thu markets of thu northwestern states uro red cluter,
oat and vetch, and nlfulfu.
The concentrates aro feeding stuffs containing a largo amount ot
nutrients as compared to roughage pound for pound and much lesit ciudo
fiber. Examples of this class ot feeds aro oats, barley, nnd milling by
product such as mill run, bran, middling, oil muul, cottonseed meal,

If order to determine what ono should food ho should first make
n Mirvey of whut ho tins produced or has on hand. Then follow this
by n Mtuly of market prices nnd conditions. After obtaining this Informa
tion tho next step Is to docldo upon tho ration to use.
As an example suppose ono has n sufficient amount of itlthnr oat and
vetch or corn ensilage-or both, that ho must purchuso tho greater portion
of his hay or roughage nnd his grain or concentrates.
