A N INCREASE in the values
f- of certain products of farm
and range that would have
been considered as too good to be
realized within 12 short months
has come to pass. Today wheat,
wool and mutton are bringing
prices that have put heart into our
producers. They are able to smile
again, an action that has been a
luxury for the greater part during
the past four years.
A year ago much agitation was
going on all over the west and a
part of the middle west farm belt
to secure legislation to stabilize
the prices of farm products. By
the legislation proposed, growers
hoped to receive 51. 2a a bushel
for wheat, though they pointed
out correctly that the price they
wiere entitled to was $1.50 a bush
el. They made it plain that they
did not expect to receive $1.50,
even if the legislation was passed,
but they did have hopes of secur
ing $1.25. Thursday wheat sold
in Pendleton to net the seller Sl.
50 a bushel. The position of wheat
in the markets of the world is
very strong at present.
Quite a volume of wool and
lambs has been contracted for
sale during the past few weeks.
Local wool has been contracted
for at prices ranging from 40 to
43 or 44 cents and in other sec
tions of Oregon 45 cents is be

Apples actually rot in New York
state while the people so close to
them as Broad ay in the great
metropolis famish for the fruit
and pay extortionate prices. Or
anges rot in the South because
the problem of dstribution has not
been solved. Corn lies waste in
the West while the East famishes
for food. What is the answer?
The problem is not unsoivable.
A New Invention.
THOMAS A. EDISON says
the next great invention will
be the helicopter. Also, he
has a novel plan for the relief of
the farmer which he avers is quite
a simple matter. One-half the
population, declares Mr. Edison,
is working in the soil, the other
half is composed of manufactur
ers and middlemen. All the gov
ernment needs to do, according to
the inventor, is to store foodstuffs
as it stores gold today and pass
them out for use as needed. Our
mind, however, is attracted more
to the helicopter, that device
which, when perfected, will en

a stated latitude to hover there
without moving back or forth, or
up or down. We do not feel suf
ficiently grunded in economics to
express valuable opinion on Mr.
Edison's plan for the government
storing of foodstuffs, but when it
comes to this helicopter business.
we enthuse. We see possibilities
of great pith and moment. Fancy,
for example, being able to hitch
all our reformers, cart-tail poli
ticians and others to helicopters,
shoot them straight up in the air
and give them permanent resi
dence in etherial space. Also of
great moment, our social scale
would be rendered devoid of
doubt. The position of the upper

five would be indisputable. We
