The Northwest Mines Handbook published .by Sidney
Norman, of Spokane, Washington, is a valuable reference
work of the mining industry of Idaho, Washington, Brit
ish Columbia, Oregon and western Montana, it gives the
name, location, stage of development, amount of produc
tion and in fact a condensed history of practically every
mine in those states. Besides it contais much valuable
information on mining conditions generally in the states
mentioned. For instance it makes the statement that
most Orcgonians would at first blush be disposed to
doubt, but which is true just the same, and that is that
"Oregon is well equipped with coal, there being numerous
fields located in various parts of the state, the most im
portant of which is the Coos Bay field." Of this field he
says it has been operated continuously during the past 35
years and has produced two and one-fourth million tons
of coal. The greatest production in any one year was in
1904 when it amounted to 111,540 tons. The production
has been kept down by the cheap fuel oils of California,
but the fields will in time be looked to for their vast stores
of fuel.
While most Oregonians know of the Coos Bay coal
fields, few of them know that down in southern Coos
county two big veins have been uncovered one seven
and the other ten feet thick, and both of good quality.
Fewer still know that coal fields have been prospected
with more or less success in Columbia county along the
Upper Nehalem, and along the lower Nehalem in Clatsop
and Tillamook counties. There is quite an extensive
field in Lincoln county on the Yaquina while Curry county
makes a good showing. There is another field but little
prospected in Jackson county and a still bigger one known
as the John Day field extending through parts of Wheel
er, Gilliam, Morrow and Grant counties.
The book will prove a substantial guide for those hav
ing business with mining companies of the northwest, and
besides is brim full of information as to value, of mineral
products of the state, yearly production and all that kind
of statistics. I
It is not at all surprising that the bolsheviki govern
ment in Russia has about reached the end of its power.
The really astonishing thing about it is that it ever came
into power or lasted as long as it has. It is the most
astounding thing that a couple of nondescript scalawags
like Lenine and Trotsky could manage to get at the head
of any kind of a government, or obtain the confidence of
any people. However the end of the farce, or what would
be such if it had not so many of the elements of genuine
tragedy, is at hand. What, or who will be the successors
of the bolsheviki remains to be seen. The one element
backed by German influence would restore a semblance
of monarchy at least, while another representing the
peasants and the masses would have a democratic form of
government, a republic patterned after that of the United
States. Apparently Russia is doomed to a long period of
unrest, of civil war conditions, of revolution and counter
revolution, until after the war at least and until the other
powers take a hand and hem her untanrie the snarls of
her political affairs. Should the German intriguers win,
and get in power it will be worse even than the Lenine
Trotsky regime, and will be an aid in extending the period
ui me war.

Portland renters are complaininsr that house owners
are steadily raising the rent on their homes and indulging
m tnat species oi speculation Known as profiteering. A
case is mentioned where a short time ago one man rented
nis nome lor a month. By successive increases his
rent is now $30 and he has been notified that it will be
advanced to $40 which he must pay or move. If Portland
expects to grow sne must not expect working men to pay
as much for house rent as they get for wages during
normal times.
Rippling Rhymes

! . Peace without annexations or indemnities is the kind
of peace the militarists will not consider so long as it can
be avoided. Germany and Austria now have a war debt
of febout $50,000,000,000, or a sum equal to more than half
the estimated value of all the property and resources of
both Countries. Any peace that leaves this burden on
their people will mean the overthrow of the present gov'
ernments, Someone has remarked that "a government
can survive war, but none has ever survived bankruptcy."
Conditions, especially financial ones, are forcing the
Prussian war lords to sacrifice every German in the em
pire rather than make peace without indemnities. Such
a peace means ineir destruction. 1
It is expected some of the fiercest fighting of the war
will be done within the next month and it is likely to start
at any time. The Prussian war lords are desperate and
will stake all on this, the last attempt at reaching Paris
they will have. With a million more Americans in France
they know the game is up, and it is either win now or
vpare for a defensive war that must eventually result
Sn defeat of their armies and the downfall of kaiserism.
for there can be no peace made until there is some sort of
substantial. government to make it with. One that will
Hot consider a peace treaty a "scrap of paper."
The American shipping plan according to Chairman
Hurley of the board will give the country a fleet of 25,
000,000 tons of merchant ships in 1920. This would be the
greatest merchant marine body the world has ever known.
The plan is to have lines to all the countries of the world
connecting them by regular service with this country.
When the war is over the United States will be sceond to
none in the matter of merchant ships, for if the plan
above mentioned should not be carried out in full, it will
be only a question of a short time until the American fleet
will be at least that large.

If we expect todo our bit, we must be sure

pretty fierce, so far as our weak eyes can

say, "Oh, chee, there's no vacation billed

Judging from the countless prepara
tions and treatments which aro con
tinually being advertised for the pur
pose of making thin peoeple fleshy, de
veloping arms, neck and bust, and re
placing ugly hollows and angles by the
soft curved lines of health and beauty,
there are evidently thousands of men
and women who keenly feel their ex
cessive thinness.
Thinness and weakness are usually
due to starved nervea. Our bodies need
more phosphate than is contained ia
modern foods. Physicians claim there
is nothing that will supply this defi
ciency so well as the organic phosphate
Known among druggists as bitro-phos-phatc,
which is inexpensive and is sold
by most all druggists under a guaran
tee of satisfaction or money back. By
feeding the nervo9 diren'tly and by
supplying the body eclls with the nce
esary phosphoric food elements, bitro
phosphate quickly produces a welcome
transformation in the appearance; the
increase in weight irequcntly bein?
This increase in weight also carries
witn it a general improvement in the
health. Nervousness, sleeplessness and
laiok of energy which nearly always
accompany excessive thinness, soon
disappear, dull eyes become bricht. and
palo cheeka glow with the bloom of
perfect health.
UAUTIOxM Although, bitro-phos-
phate is unsurpassed for relieving
nervousness, sleeplessness and general
weakness it should not, owine to its
remarkable flesh-growing properties, be
used by anyone who does not desire to
put on ilosa.

He was called to Morelands at onfte.
Some matter of business required his
immediate and personal attention.

"Whnt do you meanf"
"Why, that wc can start homo at

a few days, at tho longest, he had said.
I really was delighted to see Mer
ton. It was a nasty, rainy afternoon.
I could not go out, and the prospect of
a co.y chat with him was alluriiig.
"The portrait has been shipped, and
I am lonely," he said apropos of a re

to send it away s0 soon."
"Yes. Mr. Howard wished it proper

patient of any delay, I judge."
"Indeed he is. He is so absolutely
prompt, himsolf, where business is con
cerned ,that he has little patience when
things lag."
"Now play for me!" Morton order-
od, after a time. "I have heard no real
