Interest In land for homes and farms
increases in the Nation as tho popula
tion growa. It has become more
marked as the area of public land suit
able and available for agriculture has
diminished. It is intensified at the
present timo by reason of tho sugges
tion and desire that returned soldiors
and others who may wish to secure
farms shall have an opportunity to' do
so undo; suitable conditions. It finds
expression, too, in discussions of the
number of tenant, farmers an in its
morning and sfgniflcance. !
?That there .is still room in the Na
tion for many more reople on farms
Is clear. The United States proper
contains about 1.900.0(f0.000 acres of
land, of which an area of 1.140.000,000
acres, or, 60 per cent, is tillable. Ap
proximately 367.000,000 acres, or 32
per cpnt of this was planted in croos
in 191fi. In other wdrds, for every 100
acres raw tilled 300 acres may be uti
lized' whon the country is fully settled.

too,' that only as many will or need
stay on farms as may be necessary to

Lieutenant Hogland'B flight from
Sacramento to Seattle can be said to
be hut a limited success. If it has
demonstrated any aeronautical fact, it
is that long-distance flying is still a
hazardous business, and that before
it is possible to inaugurate long-d's-larioe
routes for mail or other pur
poses considerable improvement will
bavo t" bo made. Manifestly a fast
ma)l servlco tjiat is dependent upon
the wsatber, rain, wind, etc., Is open

PAPER RESTRICTIONS OFF.
Literally speaking, "tho lid la off" on
all paper restrictions. Tho Pulp and
Pnpe.r Section of the Vir Industries
Board has notified the mills that all
obligations, regarding conservation of
pulp paper are cancelled. One of- tho
principal reasons for paper conserva
tion was the necessity for diverting
tho chloride bleach and similar chemi
cals from tho manufacture of paper to
the production of poison gas- for use
on the Western front. A necessity
that no longer exists.'
This all listens well, but what con
cerns most of us, now that the war s
over, is how much longer the mills
will use the war as Justification for
maintaining the sky-high price.
Mr. Brndstreet, of commercial rat
ing fame, states: "Eighty-four per
cent of tho failures in the shoe busi
ness wo're of non-advertising mer
chants!" That's worth keeping In
mind because almost as high a per
centage applies to nearly every other
line of retail business.
