YOUR LIHERTY llOND
The United States government
borrowed money' from you to fl
nanco the war. You hold the gov
ernment's promise to pay you back.
Thlo promise Is called a Liberty
Ivnml or Ylfllorv not P. Oil this
.. - -
'bond .Invited the conditions un
,' 'dor which the government borrowed
the money from you.
For Instance: .If you hold a bond
of the third Liberty loan. It states
that on April 15 and October 15 of
each year until maturity, you will
xecolvo Interest on tho amount you
paid for the bond. Other Issues
Mar other rates of interett and
other maturity date", all of which
. arts clearly stated on the bond.
Now, If you keep your bond un
til the date when the government
pays you In full for It. you do not
need to worry if. In tho meantime,
the price is low one day or high
the next. You and lnclo Sara are
living up to your agreement with
each other, and neither will lose
On tho other hand, If you sell
jrpur Liberty bond now, you will
find that the man you hell It to will
not give' you a dollar for every dol
llar you paid for it. The price has
been brought down because so many
(people are offering to sell their
bonds. If the market Is flooded
with tomatoes, you can buy them
cheap, but if everyone Is clamoring
for tomatoes and there aro few
to be had, the price goes up. The
same is true of Liberty bonds.
Short-sighted people are dumping
them on th market, and wise ones
are buying 'them.
Tho best advice that can be given
to the pw.ner of a Liberty bond Is
this: Hold the bond you bought
dnring the war. It is as safe and
sound as the United States govern
Buy as many more at the present
Jlow.raje.ub yon can nfford If you
hold them to maturity, you aro
bound to, make the difference be
.tween what they sell at now "and
their! face; vajue. You will also re
ceive' good "interest on your invest
. Hold on to your Liberty bonds
and buy more.
A FLOWERS OF SPRING

mako no change. On sunny lawns
the grass, hvalwayK green." Roads
nre often dusty, even In January.
The change to spring Is marked
chofly by longer days of sunshine.
There Ik ono aspect of .the sea
son, howeer, hero as elsewhere,
that does especially distinguish It
from the others and that 1.4 tho
blossoming of the spring flowers.
First comes the wild currant.
Even In March Its little, angular
leaves begin to develop, nnd the
warm, days of April soon bring out
tho pink and white, bell-shaped
flowers tha.1 too soon ure faded by
dust. Then comes the yellow, wax
like clusters of lilotsomB on the
Infrequent and stunted branches of
our state flower, the Oregon grapo,
while, out In tho woods the man
znnttn, green-leaved the year
around, puts out the blossom that
in all but Its lack of fragrance re
minds one or the trailing arbutus
of New England. Soon, too. there
comes in the' woods tho stately anil
fragrant mountain lily.
These are flowers of tho waste
spaces. While they are putting
forth there comes by tha river nnd
In the lawn the flower that Is a de
light to the children, but a weed to
the gardener tho dandelion.
Just now there Is another blos
som that appeals especially to the
children, the "star-scattered," whlte-
petaled and yellow-centered sand
Illy, with Its long grass-like leaves
Always It is found In spots so dry
and dusty that Its appearance, In
Its fragile beauty, Is like a miracle.
A little yellow violet Is coming now
with tho sand Illy and soon the
same places will also see the deli
cate blue blossom of tho flax.
The climax of spring blossoms to
us is the flower of the chemlsal.
Thd Individual blossoms are not
especially striking, but there Is a
mass effect of yellow, when a bush
Is in full bloom, that makes It
stand out above any other flower or
shrub. With Its color thore Is also
a fragrance of heliotrope and spice,
brought out most fully on tho
warmer dajs, that Is almost over
One of the biggest things that can
bo doneby those who aro interested
in'our roads. iS;to study the problem
of the motortruck and offer some,
office on a good roads platform, by
obtaining legislation that wll rogu-
tho owner of the freight train must
late the auto truck, will be doing on
much 'for their constituents as they
will by securing funds for road con
struction. The truck is one of the modern
means of moving freight speodljy.
By use of the gasoline engineand.
hoavy frame construction there is
produced a vehicle which alone cm
bodies two of the three necessities
of a freight trains that is, the en
gine .and the car. The third, a track
on which to run; is furnished by tho
highway, wlttiythls difference, that
the 6wner of the freight train must
provide his own" tVack. Tho high

this tho public pays for In taxation.
U the truck wore, made to pay for
the uso of the. roads It would havu (o
go out of business. It could not
stand any extra charges nnd survive;
but on the other hand ll has no right
to demand of tho public that It keep
up a road of heavy enough construc
tion to carry It alone. One truck
with narrow tires and overloaded In
one day can ruin 30 miles' of road.
This burden tho public otight not (o

Tho solution Is up to tho legisla
ture. ONE WAY TO uKltlil,ATK
Yesterday wo npok"h again of the
need for legislation, to rVmtlate the
use of our roaus my auto truchs.
Today wo prosent a report from a
well known tiro company, Indicat
ing that abrond tltu problem has al
ready had consideration, ami that
certain' conclusions h a v n been
reached which may well bo taken
under consideration hero at home.
' The report Is as follows:
"Holland Is seriously consid
ering tho advisability of follow
ing in tho footsteps of Nor
way In proposing national legis
lation that will specify that
motor trucks of certain capa
city must bo equipped with
pneumatic tires, so as to pre
Vent damage to roads and to
cut down oxcesslvo cost of
highway repairs, dun to the
uso of solid tires on heavy,
"Recent cable advlcen state
that the Dutch roads congress
will meet In September for tho
purposo of discussing details of
the proposed legislation and
making recommendations to the
government on tho matter of
specifying certain pneumatic
tire equipment for motor ,e
,"In Norway the legislation to
become effectlvo this summer
provides that all trucks URod
'for 'commercial purposos must
be equipped on all four'wliccls
with tires of at least flv-nch
treads. This means that, un
to two tons, trucks mtutt, bo
pneumatically shod; from two
to thrco and a half tons, cipher
pnoumntlc or solid equipment
of more 'than five-Inch tread
is permissible, white, all trucks
of more than thrco and n .half
tons-capacity may run on solids
"It' is belloved that tho pro
posed legislation for Holland
will bo slightly different from
that of Norway, In that trucks
up to, ono ton .capacity roust
run on pneumatic tire.
., "Both countries found that
, tho trucks equipped with solid
tires hayo canned .severe cUsJij
tegratlon of the roads ' and
caused heavy expenditures of
money for repairs, .
"Norway estimated that Its
country roads would bo ruined
within two years it somo relief
was not found. Just what has
been Holland's experience is not
revealed In cables already re
