If you suspect that you may have
ulcer of the stomach or its imme
diate vicinity, there are certain us
ual symptoms which may confirm
or dismiss you conclusion, accord
ing to whether they are present or
If your distress, whatever it is,
comes on at least two hours after
taking food even later is the rule
this points to ulcer. Some are
nauseated, some have actual pain,
some become distressed by gas. The
point is, the distress comes on when
the stomach is empty, or nearly so;
and the'JeaSofl for this is, the ex
cess of acid in the stomach reaches
the surface of the ulcer, and sets
up anything from gastric spasm to
boring, burning pain, nausea, sour
stomach, as well as many minor
symptoms always with an empty
stomach, long after taking food.
This furnishes material for the
second diagnostic material for the
this: Eating something gives tem
porary relief in almost every case
of peptic ulcer. When a patient
comes to me with such evidence, I
am led to suspect ulceration. The
food relieves by absorbing the ex
cess acid which causes the pain
takes it up much as the blotter
takes up ink on paper. And a hyper
acid condition is present in simple
ulcer of the stomach. Taking "so
da" relieves so many acid condi
tions that it is of lesser value in
pointing to ulcer. Capable X-ray,
of course, clarifies the situation.
My first requirement in ulcer is
SOFT diet and my reason is plain:
if you had ulcer of the palm of the
hand, you wouldn't rub it with half
masticated radish, celery, fried
. meat or potato and expect it to
ever heal. No raw fruits, or acid
fruits, except possibly juice of sweet
orange, sparingly. Soft food always.
No overloading.
Never make a business of wash
ing out the stomach, once ulcer is
accurately diagnosed. Ulcers resent
I wish I knew how many millions
of dollars are being spent annually
on the teeth of Uncle Sam's men
and women; I imagine the sum
would be staggering!
Doubtless tons of human teeth are
extracted each year, regardless of
the age of the victims. That most
of these teeth are diseased, I do
not doubt; there may be excellent
reasons for the massacre of the mo
lars; but, it would seem to be high
time for a study of the conditions
underlying; the "why" of the dental
necrosis, the abscess, the caries, the
It is a fact that our progenitors
and racial neighbors long before us,
had better teeth than we have. Ex
plorers into darkest Africa have told
us of the beautiiul white teeth or
natives; in fact about the only beau
tiful thing about the Hottentot, the
Arab, the Zulu and others, seemed
to be the teeth. Why? They lived
on the coarsest food imaginable;
"tooth paste" was unheard of and
tooth brushes! Dentists! A Congo
maid would be crazy to even think
of such an utter absurdity!
No, it has been allotted to civil
ization to visit on its adherents the
tragedy of the teeth, not to mention
dozens of the more serious diseases,
How has the feat been accomplish
First, as to food. Rough, coarse
food is an excellent substitute for
the tooth-brush. A bag of whole
some pop-corn is a good dentrince;
eating apples the old-fashioned way
is a mighty good tonic for teeth
and gums. The mastication of the
right kind of substances was, doubt
less, intended by the Creator to be
all the "treatment" the teeth and
gums needed. It is generally when
man tries to improve on His meth
ods, that the traitor falls down.
There is no doubt in my mind
that the dirty tooth brush is re
sponsible for more cases of pyor
rhea than any other one thing. More
than this the incessant scrubbing
of the teeth is harmful to a most
pronounced degree; and a neglected
bowel is a prolific source of dis
ease that may extend to the remot
est part of the human structure.

Weeds are a constant menace to
the wheat grower and will continue
to become more troublesome. Farm
ers are strongly advised to use
every possible precaution to keep
summer fallow clean. The best time
to kill weeds Is when they are small.
Clean fence rows and roadways will
The use of chlorates in the form
of sprays for eradication of noxious
weeds like wild morning glory,
knapweed and Canada thistle offers
much promise for a practical meth
od of controlline these pests. Re
sults with sodium chlorate in east
em Oregon in 1928 were satisfac
tory. In 1929 calcium chlorates
were tested even more extensively
through . cooperation of growers
with county agents and state col
lege specialists. Results will not be
known until the summer of 1930.
The plan of the Umatilla county
court of assisting farmers in pro
viding sprav equipment for organiz
ed weed control is recommended for
consideration in other counties. Spe
cific recommendations on use of
chlorates can be obtained from the
countv aeents or state college.
General or extensive culture of
other crops on typical wheat lands
of eastern Oregon is not recom
mended. Under certain conditions
and in certain localities field peas
and corn, to a limited extent, may
be profitable to farmers who keep
