WAR AND INVENTION

States to their own government relative to British inter

over will serve to reduce the cost of living.
The cutting off of the supply of aniline dyes from Ger
many has led to the invention of processes for making
dyes in America, and, incidentally, to other discoveries of
great value. But it is the necessities wheh the cuttng off
of its import trade has forced on German invention that
promise to be of the greatest service to the world.
The need for economy has led the Germans to utilize
the blood of slaughtered animals for food, and German
chemists have even succeeded in producing albumen for
food purposes by the direct combination of hydrogen and
mtrorrcn contained in the air. Hitherto the world has
had to wait until these elements had passed through the
processes of animal life and the albumen could be obtained
in animal food products.
How much the German synthetic process of producing
albumen may mean for the world in largely decreasing
the need for raising animals for foods can be easily un
derstood, should it prove of lasting value.
The large extension of the use of electricity has great
ly advanced the demand for copper. But the difficulty of
obtaining copper has obliged the German chemists to find
substitutes, and iron, zinc and aluminum are now used
there for many purposes for which copper was thought
It is also stated that the Germans are using willow
bark and other vegetable fibers as substitutes for cotton
in making artificial rubber.
The war has greatly stimulated invention in many
directions, and, after the war is over life will be made
more agreeable and easier by the new products discovered.

W. J. Turnbridge Is Engaged
In Making Extensive
The Willamette valley, having in
many respects a climate similar to Eng
land, the homo of peppermint, will
eventually become the center of the
peppermint industry, according to W. J.
Turnidge, who has leased the W. S.
Mott farm near Salem.
It has been proven by actual test that
peppermint can be produced in paying
quantities on suitable land in this comi
ty and Linn and several farmers near
Knox Butte, Linn county, have been
experimenting with satisfactory results.
The farm of W. S. Mott, on Battle
creek, south of Salem, has been leased
by Mr. Crabtree nnd will be partially
planted to peppermint. He has lately
come into possession of a farm of ililS
acres at the junction of the Santinm
nnd Willamette rivers, and it is in this
low land that .Mr. Turnidgc will con
dact his greater experiments, la all,
he expects to plant 30(1 acres in pepper
mint this coining spring.

Always something to worry about! The Minneapolis

This is worth serious thought, says the Daily Astorian:
" 'You don't realize what a nervous strain you are putting:
on a man in the cab,' said a Southern Pacific locomotive
engineer the other day to an Ashland automobile driver,
'when you dash up toward a crossing just ahead of his;
train. There he is in his cab and he knows that he can't!
stop his engine. There you are in your automobile speed
ing toward the crossing just ahead. You probably knowj
that you are going to stop just at the edge of the trackj
and look up and laugh at him. He doesn't know but whatj
you are going to try to dash across ahead of him. It's a'
joke maybe to you. To him it's a few seconds of the mostj
intense agony. Why do you do it? When you see a train(
coming and know that you can't make the crossing andj
don't even intend to try to make it why don't you slow
down and give the engineer the assurance that his train
is not about to hurl you into eternity'?"
