FARMERS WAR ON SLUGS
Progress is being made by the
farmers, through the aid of R.
B. Coglon, county agricultural
ist, in the extermination of the
slug in Lane County. During
the past two weeks, the wet
-weather has increased the dan
ger from the pest. A remedy
suggested by Mr. Coglon is ef
fectually doing away with the
slug and the dry weather will
complete the extermination, ac
cording to the agriculturalist.
Hog cholera is being eradicat
ed in the county, according to
Mr. Coglon. "The disease has
practically disappeared," he
stated. "Of course there are a
few cases that are hanging on,
but no new cases have developed
and the farmers feel practically
safe. I believe caution will be
necessary as the infection is still
in the country."

M PENALTY OF
By 8. W. Ingllth,
Fire Prevention Expert
Every time you hear the cry of
"Fire!" you can be almost absolutely
safe In thinking that someone has
been careless. Fires don't happen.
They are the inevitable result of.
combinations of preventable things.
When analyzed to the last equation
it will be found that carelessness Is
the root whence spring nearly all
What a penalty industry pays to
carelessness! Fire is the great de
stroyer. The wealth of a generation
can be wiped out in but a brief hour.
Why not fight fires before they
start? Why not so conduct your
habits and so keep your premises
that when the fire demon wants to
offer your savings as a sacrifice he
will pass you by, just as those of
Egypt of old were passed over when
the sign they ha'd been told to place
over their doors, were seen?
Too often when those who are
responsible from fire cry out they
are the victims of bad luck, they are
out paying the natural penalty for
their own carelessness.
If you want to keep down your fire
insurance rates, wage eternal war
fare against those things that ever

Cottage Grove's depot is not
different from the depot of any
other city. Go where you will,
you will find certain young girls
that go to meet the trains. Thero
they meet young men that
wouldn't dare go to the homes
of the girls.
The Southern Pacific boasts
that it never has a wreck In
which passengers are killed. But
the officials probably wouldn't
boast that no lives of young wo
men have been wrecked through
associations developed at its de
pots. No railroad would make
such a boast. .
In such cases It is the parents
that must put up the block sig

teach "safety first."
Just as long as parents don't
know where their girls are, a
lot of them are going to bo as

not be .admitted into the home.

The recent investigation of the

extremes of society and has given the

Capital and labor liavo always been
glaring at each other over gulfs of
misunderstanding and If the Federal
Industrial Commission attempts to
bridge the chasm, it will render the
public a distinct service.
The farmer has been sitting on the
fence watching capital and labor fight
for many years and incidentally furn
ishing tho sinews of war and It la
quite gratifying to find them talking
with, instead of about, each other.
When honest men smllo and look Into
each other's souls, it always makes
the world better and far more satis
factory to tho farmer, who In tho end,'
bears the burden of conflict, than
resolutions, speeches or pamphlets
containing charges and counter
charges. Tho love for Justice makes the
whole world kin. Understanding Is on
arbiter far moro powerful than tho
mandates of government, for thero Is
no authority quite so commanding as
an honest conscience; there Is no de
cree quite so binding as that of tho
Supremo Court of Common Scnso and
no sheriff can keep the peaco qulto so
perfect as Understanding.
