harvest At the same time it is shown that the United
States and the balance of the world are building ships
faster than the submarines are sinking them, and this
should soon give us a few spare ships to get busy hauling
the gram from Australia and Argentine. There is plenty
of wheat counting that in those countries and India, but
as a vessel that can haul 5,000 tons from Australia to
Europe would in the same time haul 15,000 tons from
America and it would haul 10,000 tons from the United
States while taking half that quantity from the' Argen
tine. Our wheat must be exhausted before the other can
be gone after. Conserving wheat and shipping it from
this country is the same as building-ships.

benefitted by the use of Nujol
the entwine of flax and the preparing the fibre for
market. Since that time there have been all kinds of con
flicting reports as to the results of the experiments made.
In view of this, and since the matter is entirely in the
hands of the governor, it would be an interesting bit of
information for the people generally to learn just what
the results were, what is being done toward coninuing
he work, what has been done, and whether or not the
business has proved self-sustaining. The governor in dis
charging Superintendent Crawford . of the prison flax
department said he had not made good and was not en
titled to the bonus promised him in
profit. While this statement was made in connection
with a sort 'of side' question,-coming from the governor
as it did, and concerning a public matter it is supposed to
be true. At the same time a short time before the primary
election a newspaper, especially friendly to the governor
and printed here in Salem, stated the flax experiment was
a success, that there was more than $20,000. worth of
flax product on hand, that all indebtedness had been
paid, and that this was largely due to the governor's care
It is self evident that the statement of the governor
p.nd that of the newspaper aforesaid cannot both be
whollvtrue. It is for this reason the Capital Journal
suggests the governor make a statement of the facts. The
people of the state are interested to the extent of the
money put up, if it has not been paid especially, and the
residents of the Willamette vaney ana m iact oi au west
ern Oregon are profoundly interested in. view of the fact
that it is hoped to make the flax industries the leading
ones of the valley.
The statistics from Ireland show the average value ot
an acre of flax, when it has left the factories in the shape
of the finished product ranges from $1,750 to $2,500. Its
importance as a crop is shown by. this. With mills here
to do the manufacturing", and they will come once the raw
material is assured, the product of 10,000, acres, would
be worth, manufactured, $20,000,000; and a half of one
township with an average crop of flax made into linens
and other finished products would represent a value of
$22,500,000. The product of a section and a half would
have a value equal to the entire agricultural and orchard
uroducts of the county. These things are mentioned to
Products of the country. These" things are mentioned to
the people west of the Cascades, and to point out to the
governor that he can do notmng oi more rum lmpuiian
to the people than to give them the inside information as
to the liax plant at tne prison, me state & mcaouic
ress in growing flax, and the outlook for the industry be
ing made a permanent feature of the valley's products.
This is nskpd simnlv as a matter of justice to the people
of the state. They want to know, and having put up their
money have a right to know what has become oi it, ana
what the results of the experiment are. The governor
has all the inside information and is the only person who
can make an absolutely correct statement. It is( up to
him to say whether he will take the people into-his con
fidence and let them know about their own business, or
will take the ground that they have no right to know, on
that it is in fact "none of their business."

PEACE TALK ;r
It fills my soul with sorrow, that men must
fight and kill today and yet tomorrow, and
more tomorrow still; I'm tired of all the
slaying in spring fields over there, where
once the children, maying, with laughter
filled the air. I'm wearjr of - the story of
shrieks and dying groans,' of weapons red
and gory, of graves and dead men's bones.
And yet I'd hold it treason to boost for
balmy peace; it's surely not the season to
give such thoughts release. Until our
avalanches of men have crushed the foe, no
doves with olive branches will have the
slightest show. Until we're done with
shooing the Prussian off the walk, the dove that comes a
cooing is due to meet a shock. .The peace that leaves the
Junker of Prussia still on deck, would be a whole lot
punker than war and death and wreck. We had to leave
our haying to polish off the Hun, and now we'll go on
slaying, until the job is done. We had to quit our farm
ing, desert our growing crops, and there'll be no disarm
ing while yet a Teuton yawps. A half licked Hun would
never foresake his dreams of power, and he'd be worse
than ever m less than half an hour. And so no gents or
ladies can talk of peace to me, although the war is hades

Because of the fact that it was necessary for my
wife to take medicine for constipation while nursing
our first two children, they both suffered and were
pale and cross until old enough to eat for themselves.
When the same trouble began with our third child,
our physician said that there was no laxative medicine
for my wife that would not hurt the baby. I then
persuaded my wife to try Nujol, as I had successfully
used it. It relieved her without affecting the baby; as a
result we have the healthiest, happiest child I ever saw.
