Some poet with an observing turn of mind and a dis
position to tell the unadulterated truth, once wrote a line
or two concerning the pests that afflict man and hamper
his effors to earn at least a partially honest living, that
"fleas have other fleas to bite them." In the interests of
even handed justice this should be so even though it may
not be, for to carry the comparison to its legitimate conclusion-would
require that the fleas that bite the other
flea3 should have still other fleas to bite them and so on
indefinitely. It will be seen that after a few removes
from the original flea those that afflicted the third or
fourth series of parasites would be smaller than the
kaiser's soul; and that is reducing things to an absurdity.
However, it is sincerely hoped that the measly green aphis
that are eating the early peas, inhabiting the inner
sanctum of the crisp lettuce, spoiling the roses and mak
ing the lives of gardeners and florists alike one continuous
round of squirting some preparation of bug juice sup
posed to destroy the pests really have some pest working
on them. Sometimes it kills them in a gratifying manner,
to the fellow who manipulates the piston of the sprayer,
and again from some inexplicable cause they seem to con-
eider the spray as a special treat for their individual
delectation. Maybe it is because we do not always get the
l ight mix, but sometimes as soon as the spray begins to
arrive on the vines or bushes where the green Huns con
gregate, they give the glad tidings wide utterance and
tvery individual little devil of them crawls out and gets a
front seat with his mouth open and drinks in the dope as
greedily as a bolsheviki takes that of a Hun spy. There
is a difference though, for the spy is deadly to the bol
sheviki while the aphis fatten on the dope and each turns
his attention to raising a family which with reasonable
effort they can have ready to enjoy the spray delicacies
inside of 24 hours.
The agricultural sharps, some of them, tell us the sun
will kill the aphis, others that their period of life will soon
he over and they will be out of season. These are words
of encouragement, that is all. However there are at least !
two vegetables they will not touch, these are the stately:
cnion and the dark green foliage of the bean. As to avoid-!
ing the latter anyone who knows the flavor of raw beans!
will in spite of his dislike for the green calamities that
are dovouring his garden sass, commend them for their

The idle rich are showing their right to be
on earth; to war we see them going, to
scrap for all they're worth. Not sullenly or
slowly, and not with feet congealed, but!
with a fervor holy the rich boys seek the
field. They're fighting in the navy, and
eveiy morn they pray, "Oh, let us knock the
gravy from some fat foe today!" They're
training and they're drilling, with patriotic
j vim, they're full of pep and willing to
sacrifice a limb. Their lives at home were
sunny, it was their joy and pride to blow
J in all the money their fathers would pro
vide, ihey rode m cushioned motors, re
gardless of the cost, and I and other voters considered
them a frost. But now we see them moving where raging
armies meet, and they are surely proving that they're as
gooa as wneat. lhe gilded lads are building themselves
a laurel wreath; they've shaken off the gilding, and
r-nown tne good beneath. Their fathers pay the taxes,
with smiles serene and high, and they swing battle-axes,
and make the Teuton fly. They are so deep in slaughter,
tfiey heed not bulls and bears; on land, in air and water,
you see the millionaires.
Eighty Thousand Laborers
Are Now Ready to Gather
Great Crop
Topeka, Kan. June 13. Kansas to
day has completed tho recruiting of
eighty thousand harvest workers. Bonve
have begun work. Tho quota of 80,000
was sot weeks ago ami was reached by
coiubiucd efforts of the government
and municipal organizations. Thirty
thousand volunteers swarmed to labor
bureaus throughout the state.
Women workers will be sent to the
arm kitchens. Th men will be used
wherever they can fit in. Their pay
will average 45 cents an hour.
Wkeat is ripening in central Kan
sas now and the harvest area will
spread rapidly to tho north;
The Kaunas crop i9 spread over six
and a quarter million acres.
Boseburg, Or, June 13. -Crops in

though they are doing fairly well, at
Only one fiftieth, inch of rain has
fallen this month.
There was very little rain in May.
The entire season has been unusually
California was visited yesterday by fierce electric
storms followed by heavy rainfalls. Thunder storms are
a rarity in Oregon, but all of us would gladly put up with
a regular old fashioned eaftern one provided it would be
followed by a generous rain. That is the one thing badly
needed just now. It might hurt the cherries some, what
there is of them, but it would be the making of the wheat
nd other crops.
Someone being asked as to his opinion about the here
after and whether there was a real heaven and a real
hell replied he was satisfied both were realities and he
.was quite certain he had friends in both places. As a
further evidence of the existence of a genuine hades of
the old fashioned kind a friend the other day remarked
that it was 'an absolute necessity for he asked: "Where
would a dead Hun go if there wasn't?"
The president has given congress to understand that

door and threw myself upon the bet'
But I tiidn't cry. I lay dry-eyed bu'
with -lojchtd hands and repeated ove

The idea that tUs should speak my

"Ve hat news, your husband is

A Call for Help.
1'inally 1 tore, bathed my face and
eyes. The (jerk-, had said that Geergi.
was on the way in a Bpecial. He might
arive at any time. I rang for Celeste,
and asked her to tell Mrs. Sexton 1
would like to see her. She came to me
"What )S it?" she osk..'d, as she
ioked anxiously at me.
"!(o.ge was ou that train " then
loaluing she knew nothing of tho acci
de.t, I explained. 'George's train hat
r.et with an accident. Itj is unhurt and
on his way in a special. Many were its
j urea so I have heard." Then I told hei
of mv visit to the station, of what 1
had overheard, and how I felt. "I
HATE that woman!" I declared
"What right had she to go and tell
those people that she was there because
of George, JIY husband. It was insult
" lou sav she didn't see youj"
"No I rushed back imemdiately I
heard what she said."
"Never lot either her or George
know you did hear. If you are not cog
mzaut of an occurrence you cannot bo
supposed to rcscut it."
Then you acknowledge I should re
sent it."
"N'o not quite that. She told tho
truth, thev are old friends, very old
friends, Naturally she might feel anx
ious. But if I were in your place I
should iguor0 the incident. Not for her
sake; but for your own. To talk of it
will paliaps make it seem of more im-
i portance tnau it reany was to your
j husband. He might feel rather flatter
l ed than otherwise to know slip was so
I interested in his fate, ilen aro like that
my dear. All m?n are apt to be easily
flattered by a beautiful woman's inter
est in them. Don't make it tho more
patent by speaking of it."
"Vnu are so wise. Shall I eve
learn?" I said, feeling she had spokes
the truth.
"You nre learning have learned a
great deal. Fight women with their ow
weapons when you can do so and keep
your self-respect. If a woman engages
your husband 's interest by flattery, wh
I go her one better by using the sam"
j means. Meet her, any woman, on her
! own ground. Defeat her by your clevei
jus,, of her own weapons."
Mrs. Collins Brings George to the Hotel
Mrs. Sexton left me after a little
'more talk, confidential in that she tolt
I uie things concerning herself; her owr
married life. I was happier when she
i had gone, more determined to make
myself the kind of a woman George
had thought I would be when he mar-
j ried me.
i I bathed my face and put on a most
becoming dress. I had hardly done so
'when I heard voices in the hall, and
George and Julia Collins came in. For
'a moment, I couldn't speak. Oh, why
hadn't Mrs. Sexton remained with met
Then I saw that George had his arm in
a sling.
"You said you weren't injuredl" I
exclaimed going to him. "How do yoa
d0 Mrs. Collins-" I added, as Georgfl
kissed me more tenderly than usual. Af
j ter that kiss I did not ear0 what she
j hail done. I felt that my husband was
'glad to see me; glad he had not been
j killed because of me. I don't know
, what gave m0 that feeling. I had it.
I "It's nothing!" he said, "just
i sprain. When I think of those poor fel
i lows who were burned to death 1 almost
feel ashamed to wear the sling. Yoy
j see, Helen, if was the smoking car that
I took fire. The injured were all men
j Had there been women or children it
j would have beOn even worse," he shud
' dered.
All this time Julia Colins had stood
quietly listening. Now she remarked:
"I heard of the accident and went
down to the station. When I beard it
was the train on which George was ex
pected I waited for the special. I felt
sure he would be glad to have some one
to bring him home."
j "It wtis kind of you. Thank you." 1
returned. ''I a!sn went to the station
but I fonld not endure the wait with
I people looking on. Naturally you would
' not be as concerned as I was, nor fee'
the samc at being in a crowd." I knew
by her expression that I bad scored.

Stockholm, June 13. The Eussias
bolsheviki have no foreign policy. Thcj
are simply ostrich-like in their naiv.l
faith that Germany soon will be undep
mined by a revolution.
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Tcbit
cherin is constantly protesting to Ger
niauy against violations of the Brest
Litovsk treaty, while swallowing the
diplomatic pills, handed out by German
Ambassador Mirbach.
Premier Lenine calls this policy
"forced retreating while preserving tho
soviet power". This is a joke.
With peace negotiations between Rus
sia and Ukraine under way at Kieff and
preliminary negotiations begun with
Finland, the first impressions are that
danger of further seizures of Bussian
territory is over and that a real period
of respite is beginning.
Yet the newspaper Dien was suppress
ed because it published a statement
from a German military attache regard
ing possible German occupation of Petro
The bolshevik declare there is no im
mediate danger. Yet me Russians were
forced to blow up a number of fortresses
which were of great importance to the
defense of Petrograd.
I am authoritatively informed that
the newFinnish government is forming
an army of 100,000 German trained sol
diers. Of these 3o,000 already are un
der arms.
When I stopped in Helsingfors har
bor, en route here from Petrograd, I
learned authoritatively that 40,000 Ger
man troops now are in Finland. Person
ally I counted nine big German trans
ports. The question is, why these prepara
tions? Most assuredly they are for tho
occupation either of Murman peninsula
or Petrograd, probably both.
Curious events also arc transpiring
on the southern borders of Russia. Both,
the soviet and the Ukrainian govern
ments declare their readiness to con
clude peace long ago. Now, when nego
tiations are proceeding, German troops
have occupied Valuiki and tho Turkish
government, contrary to the Brest-Li.
tovsk treaty, claims Novo-Kosick. Then
is but slight doubt that Germany seek
to occupy the whole of Russia and re
store the old regime.
A second peries of facts likewise is
important. These refer to the conduct
of the laud owners and bourgeoisie
(middle class) who will b? pleased if the
Germans smash the revolution and save
their property.
General Mannerheim, ' commander of
the Finnish army, and Skoropadsky,
(hetman) of the Ukrainians, who rep.
resent autocratic Bussian ' officialdom,
possess allies among the Russian army
leaders. It would be quite easy fot
these two generals to prepare a military
advance against Moscow and Petrograd
with the aid of German troops.
The bourgeoisie are certain of the
early fall of the bolsheviki, yet soviet
diplomats are trying to maintain peaca
and strenuously deny all German char
ges regarding violations of the Brest
Litovsk treaty.
The Soviets are unwilling to go fur
ther on the road of allied orientation
than aceeptnnce of economic aid from
the United States. All of which eases
immeasurably the work of Germany and
tho Russian bourgeoisie.
Only a united, democratic front and
a coalition government, which will di
rect the fulelst coloperation with the
allies, can save, the republic from a
counter revolution. Yet the bolsheviki
stubbornly refuse.
Their days, however are Hearing an
end, Either democracy or imperialism
will sono triumph,

the great victories upon which our
strong future rests," the kaiser declar

the old general's back.
