Canada is as much interested in
freeing its grains from weed seeds
as is the United States. The Alber
ta Department of Agriculture has
perfected a machine which grain
men declare is the greatest step for
ward yet taken in the control of
weeds on farms and the reduction of
dockage. The machine is attached
to the top of the separator and
cleans the grain of weed seed3 and
small grain before it goes to the
bin or wagon. In a recent demon
stration the machine reduced the
wheat dockage to less than one per
cent from the usual run of from live
to eight per cent. This means the
saving in dockage alone of from
six to fourteen cents per bushel, ac
cording to grade. In addition to this
is the big saving on freight charges
on the dockage, the value of weed
seeds as feed on the farm and the
prevention of weed spreading. The
agricultural department will direct
the marketing of the machine and
make it easy for threshers to purchase.
The average human expects a
sweet and pleasant "Number please"
from the telephone operator on all
occasions so pleasant in fact that
it transmits over the wire, the smile
with which one expects to be greeted
at the central office. This good will
is a policy of the company, and is
almost universally practiced by the
operators, so that the general pub
lic has fallen into the habit of ex
pecting it. Aside from the conven
ience of the telephone, and the ser
vice rendered, it would really be, in
a measure returning some of the
good will received and encouraging
the smiles of at least the manager
of our local office, if customers
would note the statements sent out,
and try to get their checks in on
time. "Service with a smile" should
be rewarded by prompt payment of
the telephone bill anyway.
If the modern American boy goes
wrong, it is because the modern
American home does not hold the at
traction that it should. Idle hands
and idle minds are encouraged by
the parent who "spoils his child."
With definite chores to be done
with a suitable and desirable reward
in store, a boy does not have time
to seek evil companions. With good
books, attractive games, a worktable
and tools and nails, and a little
studying now and then will do fiiuch
to build up mind and body in the
way they should grow.
Perhaps Frank H. Simmonds made
the greatest record as a war corres
pondent, and his sagacity during the
World War won wide attention. He
looks upon the opening of the second
quarter of the century as beginning
a New Era, and says, "The Dawes
plan and the Security Pact of Loc
arno are the two landmarks in the re
storation of Europe to sanity." The
Locarno agreement is not a settle
ment of anything, but it is a sign of
the return to this sanity which is
necessary if we are to have peace.
Those sun spots that were going
to wreak such vengeance in the
way of a hard winter, are so far
ineffective. With Oregon peaks
basking in a summer sun, and wheat
growing apuce, why migrate to ye
sunny south. Of course Old Boreas
may be lurking around the corner,
but lets be good fellows while we
Soon Easterners and even those
unfortunate ones residing in the mid
dle west will mnke Oregon the goal
of their winter itinerary.

They also have a budget for a school girl's cloth
