SHALL THE APPEAL BE IN VAIN?
Today was set apart by the president as "Jewish-Relief
Day.'' It is being observed in all parts of the United
States and will no. doubt result in the collection of a large
sum for the unfortunate people of this race, and especial
ly of those in Poland anil contiguous sections, where it
is estimated nine million are destitute and in dire need of
the bare necessaries of life.
Stories of atrocities, fiendish in character, committed
on these unfortunates have been printed time and again,
but it is not worth while to go into that phase of the sub
ject. All that is necessary to know is that millions with
out any wrong-doing on their part, are suffering, starv
ing, homeless,' helpless, hopeless. They have no place to
turn for relief but to America, and it is up to all of us to
do what we can to relieve distress and save life.
The tide of war has swept back and forth across then
country, each time leaving what was before distressful
conditions, still worse. The Russians after having passed
through their country to attack Austria were driven back,
and as is their custom in retreating burned or destroyed
all behind them.
On the unfortunate Jews of Poland this blow fell
hardest. Their homes were burned, their cattle driven
away or killed and all food supplies captured or destroyed.
Many of the men were forced into the Russian army and
made to assist in the destruction of the homes of their
As the Austrians and Germans swept after the Rus
sians conditions were made still worse, with the exception
that some food was given the starving people, for in many
cases the little the Russians had left was destroyed.
They are an industrious, thrifty, hard working people,
mostly engaged in agriculture, and their misfortunes have
not been of their own making. With all that America can
do for them countless thousands will die before spring
comes, and whatever we can give will only serve to allev
iate a situation that is simply appalling, in its tcrribleness.
Wives and mothers, old women and children, aged and
decrepit men all gaunt from hunger, hopeless and despair
ing, hold out their hands to us across half the world and
ask for aid to save them anil theirs from starvation and
Here on every side is plenty, even our poorest being
rich indeed beside their richest. Can we not each of us
out of our abundance do something to relieve our fellow
human beings in the war-desolated regions of Poland?
Can we as christians turn a deaf ear and an empty
hand to this appeal? Oregon has been hard hit by busi
ness depression, and here there are many needy, but none
here need starve, and hard as conditions may seem fov
some of these, the poorest of them would be the envy of
nine millions of the stricken people of Poland.
Let the big-hearted folks of Salem call at the Com
mercial Club or the Portland Railway, Light & Power
company's office and do something, even though it be lit
tle, toward relieving the starving Jews of war devastated
We take pleasure in heartily indorsing a sentiment in
the Oregonian about the proposed change in the weather
measurements, and the using of the centigrade system in
stead of Fahrenheit. If the Wilson or any other adminis
tration wants to know what it is to be knocked off the
earth, let it monkey with the weather system until none
of us would understand it. If that change is undertaken
there will be temperature above loO either old system in
short order. The American people will stand for tariff
changes or even two-quarts-a-month dryness, but nixie
for the weather being placed beyond their reach and

WHY THEY ARE
Some of the Oregon papers are making a bitter fight
against the Ferris bill : their greatest objection being that
it prevents public lands from being acquired by private
parties. This it undoubtedly does, but what difference
does it make to the average citizen whether the lands are
retained by the government or owned by Weyerhauser?
Whether the waters are leased by the government or
owned by one or two great companies that will wax fat
on the use of the waters and charge the people, not what
the power is reasonably worth, but all the traffic will
stand? When some safeguard can be thrown around
the lands to keep them for actual settlers, or the waters
so that the public would not be robbed by the companies
getting possession of them the citizens of the state will
take some interest in the subject. The dear people have
had the big companies use their hands for raking the
chestnuts from the fire so often and these have been
burned so badly that they are getting decidedly chary of
chestnuts, one of which is the cry that the dear people
want this or that. They have been fooled so often and so
badly that the cry of stop thief no longer attracts atten
tion, as experience has shown that it is generally the
thief that joins in the pursuit of himself who is the most
vociferous in the cry.
Insurance agents in Portland are getting more par
ticular since Insurance Commissioner Wells has notified
them their licenses will be cancelled if they write indis
criminate insurance. They don't mind the loss of the
buildings by fire, the companies have to stand that but the
loss of their licenses is a much more serious matter.
If Oregon ever becomes a corn growing state it will
owe it almost entirely to the good work done by the O.
W. R. & N. Railroad Company with its demonstration cars
and educated experts. They went on the theory that,
Oregonians were from Missouri, and "showed" them.
J. Ogden Armour in Los Angeles yesterday predicted
prosperity for the coast in the near future. Everything
looks rosate to such folks as Armour who are raking in
millions, but up this way, "Hope deferred maketh the

That old masher, Winter, evidently has Spring on his

Old Bingsmith has a goodly pile of all the coins that
are in style. He owns some palaces and mills, the cattle ,
on a thousand hills, and bonds and stocks and mining
shares, and ginseng farms and Belgian1
hares. My neighbors envy him a lot; his
grandeur seems, to make them hot. "He
has a dozen cars," they sigh; "we walk, as
he goes scorching by. He has roast turkey
every day, and we are eating straw and
hay. He wears a sunburst at his throat,
and has a long Prince Albert coat, and
hard-boiled shirts of divers hues, while we
are short of hats and shoes." Thus they ex
plain their grief to me; I cry, "You're hap
pier than he; just contemplate, my friends,"
I say, "the tax that poor guy has to pay! That is the
punishment of those who corner all the coin that grows!
Just watch them when they pay their tax they dread it

Stay off the damp ground, avoid ex
posure, keep feet dry. eat. less meat,
ill ink lots of water and above all tak
ti spoonful of salts occasionally to keep
down uric acid.
Rheumatism is caused by poisonous
toxin, called uric acid, which is gene
rated in the bowels and absorbed intoi
the blood. It is the function of the
kidneys to filler this acid from the
blood and cast it out in the urine. The
pores of the skin are also a means of
freeing the blood of this impurity. la
damp and chilly, cold weather the skin
pores aro closed, thus forchlg the kid
neys to do double work, they become
weak and sluggish and fail to eliminate
this uric acid which keeps accumulating
and circulating through the system,
eventually settling in the joints and
muscles causing stiffness, soreness and
pain called rheumatism.
At Hie first twinge of rheumatism
get from any pharmacy about four
ounces of .lad Salts; put a tablespomit'ul
in a glass of water and drink before
breakfast each morning for a week.
This is said to eliminate uric acid by
stimulating the kidneys to normal ac
tion, thus ridding the blood of the-e im
purities. Jail Salts is inexpensive, harmlesn

lemon juice, combined with lithia and
is lt-ed with excellent results by thous
