FARM LABOR AND "PEAK LOADS"
There is a little newspaper printed at the Oregon State
Prison, called very appropriately :"Lend a Hand." It is
the work of the prisoners in all its department?, and its
work is excellent in all of them. Mechanically.it shows
some first-class printers have found their way iilto the
prison, and its editorial and new? columns indicate some
editors, real ones, are also doing penance for missteps.
It is printed monthly and those in charge are trying to
enlarge it a little and to make it cover the field more

naturally drive labor away from the farm, and into the
cities and once it finds employment there it will not go
back to the farm unless almost compelled to do so, or an
extra wage persuades. This is really one of the most
serious phases of farm life, and it is one for which there
seems no remedy. Diversified farming will help some, but
at the best there are times when there is nothing to justi
fy the farmer in employing labor. He will be a true phil
anthropist who finds a practical solution of the problem.

The kaiser's face looks sad &.nd worn; his
eyes forever seem to mourn; his features
have a bloodless hue, his hair is white, his

A warning comes from . the agricultural college ot
Michigan against planting too many potatoes, lhe of
ficials of the college are afraid there will be over produc
tion and yet potatoes are the best substitute for bread
and they can be shipped to the armies of the allies just
the same as wheat. The evaporated spud is an ideal
product for this purpose, containing plenty of sustenance
in small bulk, and it certainly is a food that would be ap
preciated and enjoyed by the men m the trenches as well
L the civilian population. There is little likelihood of
there being too large a crop, but should there be an ex-
cess it can be used prontawy oy lunuug u imV'u'Il'a7i
there is no danger of there being an over supply ot that.
With average conditions the United States this year,
should stow the greatest potato crop in its msiory. wiuie
some of the agricultural sharps are expressing fears of
over production, they are being frightened needlessly.
The potatoes will all be used, and will all be needed. If the
war should end this year they will be needed all the more
for it will be up to us to help relieve the conditions in
Germany and among the other Central allies.
Germany 'considered it sufficient cause for her to go to
war because a crazy Serbian killed an Austrian prince;
but believes the United States should not go to war over
the deliberate murder of her citizens by German orders.

A EIVER MYSTERY

lny-ntery todav surroimils the l"uulin; of
the body of an aged man, his hands tied
together, in the Columbia river near

foul play, are al tempting to identify
the body.
What Does
Catarrh Mean?
It means inflammation of a
mucous membrane some-
bronchial tubes, stomach, bil-
rarv uucis or Doweis. it a wnvs
means stagnant blood the i
Diood that is full of impur
ities. Left alone, it extends
until it is followed by indigestion,
colds, congestion or fever. It weakens
the system generally and spreads its
operations until systemic catarrh or
au acute illness Is the result.
Peruna
Is the nation's reliable remedy for
this condition. It restores appetite,
aids digestion, checks and removes
inflammation, and thus enables the
membranes, through which we breathe
and through which our food is ab
sorbed, to do their work properly.
Forty-four years of success, with thou
sands of testimonials, have established
it as the home remedy Ever-Ready-to-Take.
Its record of success
holds a promise for you.
