Blythe, the star writer of the Saturday Evening Post, pays a glowing tribute to the work of the Salvation tjrmy in France. He has visited the war zone and speaks from personal observation. Mr. Blythe takes occasion to score severely many high toned workers sent to the front by prominent organiza tions in this country. He says they make nuisances of themselves, get in the way and eat food that ought to be consumed by soldiers or real workers. The Salvation Army, however, is always where it is most needed, poorly equipped, travelling without show or noise, but ready with comfort and assistance where it is required. This will be news to many in this country, since the Salvation Army has made no drives for large amounts of money and evidently has employed no press agents to exploit its war work abroad. The Salvation Army seems to hae small overhead ex penses, no well-dressed idlers in its organization, living well and really doing nothing. Its members are workers in the ranks who have learned to know where there is poverty, suffering and sin, and how to best alleviate con ditions without lavish expenditun of money. Service in the army of the Lord seems the one require ment of the Salvation Army soldiers and there are few skulkers from duty in its ranks. Their uniforms are seldom disgraced. . Mr. Blythe's article is timely. It will remind the Amer ican people that while they are giving their dollars freely to the more prominent war work organizations they should not' forget to save some of their dimes and nickles for the humble Salvation Army when it passes the hat around. They need not worry about an accounting for not a penny of it will ever go astray. When Christ was on earth he did not select the scribes ?nd Pharisees to expound his gospel but choose his desciples from among the poor and lowly; He carried his message personally into the homes where' sin and afflic tion and poverty were housed and that message was heard around the world and is more potent today than it was two thousand years ago. The Salvation Army is only obeying His command to go into all the worldnot so essentially where the lights are brightest and happiness and contentment reign, but into the dark places where there are sin and degradation to be banished and suffering and sorrow to be assauged. The "blood-soaked fields of France are now being thor oughly campaigned by these valiant soldiers of peace and mercy. 1 TTin VJnrntn WTtn friorirTorl 4 auv iivuiau ii uu viiuuiu ' By JANE PHELPS TUB REACTION How the Oregonian hates to support the government because there happens to be a democratic president in powec Sometimes it would appear that it would almost welcome the kaiser in order to defeat the efforts of a democratic administration to successfully conduct a war against a foreign foe. It has been so vindictively and un fairly partisan that even the danger of foes from with out cannot restrain it from criticising and villifying public officials and seeking to hamper them in their ef forts to meet an emergency that confronts the nation and threatens its very existence as a free eovernment. The Oregonian's distrust, is shown in untruthful and uncalled for articles- appearing as press dispatches but marked "special." They are not Associated Press dis patches, but the reading public generally takes them to be genuine. Most of them are manufactured and sent out by Al.T.. .11" i . . - - " uie itepuDiican national press bureau or some Kindred or ganization of conspirators banded together to embarrass tne government and hamper war activities. One of these "dispatches" dated New York in todav's Oreeonian tells about how some disgruntled member of the National feel that it was wonderful that Defense Council wrote a letter to Secretary Baker, resign-' tStXSZ uig ma juu utxause tne nearst newspapers were not com pelled to suspend publication. It is a fair sample of this "special" grapevine news printed by the Oregonian and other partisan sheets which are doing good work for the kaiser over here by lying about our own government and the work it is doing. George Palmer Putnum, former secretary to Governor Withycombe, has written a book entitled "The Smiting of tne Kock." it has just been issued from the press of G. P. Putnam's Sons. Mr. Putnam- who was a renublican Here, is said now to be connected with the department of justice m the east. Whether he has changed his politics again, or holds his job because the democratic national administration is more liberal in its views than the nar row guaged partisan who runs the Oregbn state house we are not informed. Anyway, George has a job and will probably need it if he essays to make a living writing novels. ' Italy's success in hurling back the Austrian invaders yrill have a far reaching effect on the European military situation, in the opinion of American officers at the national capital, so the dispatches state. The moral value, so far, is greater than the military gain, but there is a wide expectation among American officers that as the Austrian defense cracks the way will be open to strike the Teuton alliance in a most vital spot. It will take time to reach that point. Austria has sufficient man power to keep up a strong defensive for many months because the cllies have not the reserves to immediately follow up the opportunity now presented. But a gradual weakening of Austria's power is inevitable. The internal unrest in the dual monarchy, it is held here, is certain to be aggravated by the futile offensive. Reports to the state department indicate the dire straits' of the half starved people. All these factors lead to the belief that a rapid dissolution of the Teuton alliance will come when the allies are strong enough to undertake an offensive on all fronts. The Italians stood theirground and fought this time, whipping the-Austrians to death. As a matter of fact, in this entire war, neither the Germans nor Austrians have won a victory where their opponents- if anywhere equal numerically; stood up and fought back. , Most of their victories against Russia, Italy and Rumania were won by treachery in the ranks of the opposing army. . The Oregon state prison is out of money and if the convicts continue to walk away from it it will before long be out of inmates. As long as Withycombe is governor, however, the institution will never be out of politics. - - Rippling Rhymes I by Walt Mason CHAPTER CXIIL I scarcely spoke again that evening. and George did not except when I asked a question. I was discouraged, depressed. I knew I had not been tactful. I had impulsively, arraigned him instead of telling him quietly how I suffered from his non-appreciation of my efforts to pleas? him. The reaction of the day s excitement was telling on me. I felt a morbid pleasure' in assuring myself I had lost them both; that I had dis missed Merton and had sot won any. thing by doing it. "What was the use trying to be good and do right!" I said to mysulf as after an hour I bado George good night and went up stairs. I wanted to be alone. The regular turning of the leaves of the magazine had irritated in.?. My nerves were on edge. As I look baek I I could reason with ight be fore and of tho interview with Mer ton. But then I could not reason; I could only suffer. I went immediately to bed, and in stantly fell asleep. The next morning George said laughingly: "What had you beta eating? You suorcd lik.9 a pirate last night. I woke you several times, rather tried to, but you went right on snoring." "Oh, I hope I didn't disturb you," I said, mortified, and blushing hotly. "Who'se got a better right! " he re turned tweaking my .oar. If She Could Only Understand I was fraukly surprised at Uis good nature. I must have kept him awake; ho had been cross with me the night before. Would I ever kuow him, ever understand his different modes! At breakfast he was very pleasant; al LITTLE TALKS ON THRIFT Br S. W. STRAUS PmiJtnl American Steu&ftr TMrifl r An excel lent example o f patriotic and construc tive thrift it found in the development of the Amer ican peanut industry. In the South many organ izations are working t o encourage tbe more exten sive cultivation of this product An impression exists that the peanut is without substantial value in a large way in contributing to the nation's food supply or as a means of additional revenue to agri cultural communities. However, it is capable of holding a large olace in the nation's food supply. It js used in making compound lards and oleo margarine, besides a very good qual ity of cooking oil. Peanuts contain glycerine in large quantities, which is used in making ammunition. The peanut tops make a good hay, and in some parts of the South yield as high as three-fourths f a ton of hay to the acre. Peanut flour is rapidly gaining popularity for a variety of uses, and peanut butter is a desirable and wholesome article of food. Pea nut cake makes excellent feed for stock. It is said that not a single portion of the peanut plant goes to waste, and it can be grown to advantage in portions oi the South and West where the amount of moisture is smalL In the South it is said the peanut kills Johnson grass, which in itself makes it a desirable oroduct The peanut will yield about 60 per! will prove of great value to the na-J tion, lor, as uie war progresses, there will be an ever increasing need for the vegetable oils, both for food and in the manufacture of ammuni tion. I he roasted peanut contains 46i per cent of fats and 29J per cent protein. The leading state in the production of the peanut is Texas, which last year had a crop valued at sjo.UWV 000 from approximately 800,000, acres. This year the indications are, that the acreage in this state will be about 1,500.000 acres. In most of the Southern states there is a large, increase in acreage this year which; means a corresponding increase in food and war supplies. Through the South peanut mills are rapidly being erected. In many places the farmer raised the peanut merely as food for his hogs which he allowed to feed on the vines. With the recent introduc tion of the Spanish peanut and ths erection of the mills, the industry has changed in character. The development of the peaaut in dustry is alluded to here as an illusJ tration of the value of constructive! thrift. J replied if you don't mind, kindly, Mrs. Hattie Dangerslow. "Not-a-tal!, on the contrary" Sheer smiled voraciously. And he led,hv?r to a $300 self-crank- nig, non-skid talking machine, pusuing a chair gently against the back of her most jolly. He teased me unmercifully knees until Bhe sat down, and handed One cherry grower near this city telephoned this morning that pickers were running all over his place and that he did not know what to do with them. This gentle man advertised in the Capital Journal and this overcome the prevailing shortage of labor a method getting what you want that is especially efficient in this day and age. The man who tries to do business with the public without using printers' ink generally winds up in the bankruptcy court. LADD & BUSH, Bankers ALL THE THIRD LIBERTY BONDS ARE NOW HERE. THOSE INTERESTED PLEASE CALL AT THE BANK - HHHHHHt CHANGED HABITS The task I used to like, alas, to me no longer make appeal; I do not care to mow the grass, with seven feet of flashing steel. The weeds are growing on my lawn, which once was handsome as a park; for I begin to talk at dawn ot war, and keep it up till dark. 1 o cockleburs are growing dense where once the scarlet rambler grew; decay has marked my picket fence, and all the other things in view. For I must talk with Neighbor Jones that's what my leather lungs are tor explaining, in heroic tones, what we should do to win the war. I do not care to swat the flies, although that sport once hit the spot, and early in the day I'd rise, with noble zeal, and swat, and swat. Each fly in safety now may soar, ana multiply to beat the band; I'm busy at the Blue Front store, where allied strategy is planned. There I'm considered sane and wise, and people harken to my rede; 1 have no time to swat the flies, which on the na tion's substance feed. I do not care to boil the germs, although our lives may be at" stake, for I must tell, in ringing terms, where Kronprinz Willyum made his break. I used to read the. bulletins the health board issued once a week, and I would stir mv ancient shins, and makp mv slats and hinges creak; none better knew to swat the flies, or boil the germs, or bat the rats; but now I meet with graybeard guys, and we all gossip through our hats. A BOY'S LAMENT. I am patriotic, As every boy should be, But I lute to see the bakeries Put it over me. They get ALL the wheat flour, a you already know, While ,ve flout get enough To maiio some biscuit dough. So we must buy from them, And let them profiteer, While Ajer sits in his chair With pencil on his ear. Why should we have to do without The kind Ma used to make! Would he use more whoat flour Than thi baker for a cakef We eat just as muck wheat flour, As we ever did before, The only difference is We pay a heap-sight more. So give us just a little, That wo have our share, And we will leave a plenty For tha Boys "over there." AXOTHEB KEADEE. A newspaper man friend sugeests that the two greatest shortstops the world about snoring; said he was. going to bring homo a pincaer for my nose, and a lot of other nonsense. When he was ready to go he said ' ' Come down town and havol uneheon with me if you like. I nhnll not be very busy today." ' ' That will be a treat," I Baid quietly. Just in time I remembered Mrs. Sex ton's advice anant being meek, too meek. L sunlly 1 had gushed over such an invitation; and thauked him ful somely as if it wore no pleasure at all tor him; that the iov was all mine. "It will bo for m.9 also," he had said then kisied me as carelessly as U3ual. I danced arbout the house all tho morning. I laughed and talked with Ce leste while sh.o helped mo dress; tell ing her to make mo lovely. I was a little earlj an to restaurant, so waited in the lobby for George. While I waited, Mr. Carpenter, whom I had met tho first time I lunched there, came in, and seeing mo alono came directly up to me. Are you lunching hero!" he asked, Yes. I am waiting for Mr. How ard." "Just my IK- Every attractive woman I know is always waiting for some other man," he returned. The words meant nothing, but the tone, and the look that accompanied tli.ora made be. blush. Ho had just left me when Oeorge came in, "What are you blushing for!" he asked. ' ' That Mr. Carpenttr was just talking with niu," and I repeated what he had said. George Shows a Flash of Jealousy. "The fool!" George said under his breath, then "he better not poach on my p....reserv.2s," ho took my arm and we went in to tne table he had resorv' ed by telephone. I was so happy I could have laughed aloud, ueorg,') hud really shown a lit tlo jealousy. Ho was not really angry; it was more tho petulant ' expression of a jealous lover. I waB sure now that I would have a pleasant lunch hour; and strang.9 as it may seem the little incident helped mo to feel I had dono exactly right in dismissing Merton Gray. That such a momentous action should even in my thoughts hang upon such a trivial incident was ridiculous of course; but in my mood at that time nothing aoemed too small to be of con sequence as it affected Georg0 and me. After luncheon, which had passed off almost gayly, George had another sur prise for uue. "I have to go over to Leonard Park" a town very near us "1 thought perhaps you would enjoy the ride; ao told Jnmes to meet us here with th,a touring ear." Again I thought of Mrs. Sexton. I would not show too much enthusiasm. Yot knowing how he disliked a long ride in an open car I knew he had or dered tho touring ear to please me "I shall enjoy the ride. It will do yon good also. Tou looked a bit fagged wuen you came in to rancneon." 80 you noticed it! I was tireA out. One of the men in the office is sick. He didn't, show up today, and things were a bit snarled in consequence. But I feel bully now. I guess I was hun gry," he then raotioiwd Mr. Carpenter to come and have coffte with us, "He mustn't think I miuded his Bpeaking to you, so confirming my suspicions.

"I think I'd like to hear No. 80,999,-743-AA first," she Baid at length, "Certainly!" brisked Imber Shter and rubbed his hands delightedly, for it was "That Bagjjedy Barman Bag" sung by Caruso, Melba and Tetrazzini an eleven dollar' record. "Pevf'ly perfect!" Bighed Mrs. Dan gtrslow, and for two hours she SAT there picking the most costly records from tho catalogue, al of which Imber Sheer played for her, obligingly keep ing the store open an hour past the usual closing time. "And now if you'll just tell me which ones have motith your approv al?" he said at length. "Oh, I like 'em all, I've enjoyed each and every one," she assured him, "and I cert'n'y intond to talk the mat ter over with the family and n.ayb some day we'll get a talking machine." And she thauked him again and went' out, and Imber Sheer savagely ate 4 fourteen dolar record. Latonia Derby Will Have l$20,000 Added Value Cincinnati, Ohio, June 25.

Please write an article On Rickets. My baby eleven months old cannot sit up, and seems to have no power in her back. What kind of food Is suitable and how long does the disease astt Perhaps your child is not affected with rickets, but with some other disease. Rickets, or rhachitis, Is tha tetiult of bad nutrition, affects all the tissues of the body, and chiefly loaves its mark on the bones Which it softens and then deforms. It usually occurs boforo tbe third year, but the bone deformities ap pear later. It Is caused by food which Is not assimilated, but also by neglect ot the skin, bad air, insufficient sleep, etc. The children of the poor have it, tut so do those of tha rich. In this country it is commonly among ne groes and Italians, but not among Irish or Germans. In the great European cities one Bees it everywhere. The urine of rhachitlc children contains phos phates in abundance and the bones, being deficient in lime, bend and break easily. Rhachttio children have soft spots in the bones of the skull; and the membranous portions of the skull, where you notice throbbing and pul sation In an infant, and which ought to harden during the first few months of life, remain soft All the bones of the skull. Instead of being firmly united, are and easily moved. The face of a rhachitlc baby Is small, and the head seems dispro portionately large. 1 The liver, spleen and lymphatic glands are enlarged, the muscles oft, and the ligaments weak. 1 The child's appetite may be good, ha may even seem voraciously hun gry, but his food doesnt appear to nourish him, he becomes fretful, gets diarrhoea and this alternates with constipation. He is sensitive, cries when touched, bis diarrhoea is offensive, the ap pearance of his teeth Is delayed, and when they break out they are irregu lar and of poor quality. When ha begins to walk, the weak ness of the bones of the legs becomes apparent and they bend or break easily; the joints are weak and he falls frequently. When he tries to move himself with his arms, the arm bones beni or break and there may be an out ward hump on the spine. On the ends of the ribs there are knobs or bead-like structures, tha breast bone projects and the child becomes pigeon breasted. The pelvis may become deformed and, in females, this has a very Im portant bearing upon the successful delivery of offspring, If impregna tion Bhould ever occur. Rhachitlc children are frequently, bow-legged, knock-kneed or flat footed; they are also sensitive to bronchitis and croup, and die from these diseases mora frequently than children who have better physical development If they reach maturity, they are short and poorly formed and their limbs often reveal the marks ot early disease. Rhachitlc children should be taken to the mountains or sea-shore, If pos sible, and should have abundance of good plain food which they can as similate which will be indicated by the change in their stools and in their general nutrition. Fats in the form of cod-liver olL or olive oil, should be given them; also as much of eggs, milk, and cereals as they can dispose ot Treatment with mechanical appara tus is Important to prevent de formities, and thev should have all loose- possible benefit from public parks, sea-baths, sleep, fresh air, and lift in the country when this can be pro vided.
