THE WACONDA FIRE.
Waconda,, Ore, Aug. 2. Editor of the
Capital Journal: On the night of July
:i0, 1018, Mrs. David Kceno and two
children, nnd Mrs. Habcrt and son, (af
ter returning from hill 2, where, they
had been spending the evening with
Hiss Hilma Elnora Aghlgr.on) stood
talking as women will befifro parting
at the north of the Oregon Electric
warehouse at Waconda.
Thero was no odor of smoio,
lie great structure pave no evidence
that at about 1:30 it" would bo a $60,000
loss. Although they noticed that a
board had U?en pried off whero some
one might enter, whilo talking, they
noticed across th.? ravine where the
chool house stands, strange flashlights,
they must have been weird like, for
Mrs. Habert said, "they made the cold
chills run over me," at about the same
tinv, or a little earlier, Mrs. Etta Park
who lives on hill 2, on the Ralem-Cham-j
ioeg road, heard an auto sneak into the
school ground, at 1.30 she again heard
the sneaking auto, jumped from ben op
ened the door, and saw two nvsn iu the
Auto without lights, they nearly ran iutoi
ttip mail box. She seemed to them, asl
an unwelcome observer, and instinctive
thoughts of being shot flashed across
her mind as she watched them sneak
past, dash north, at the some instant
lie saw a long streak of fiio In the
warehouse and she ran screaming to
waken the slumbering town, meanwhile
J. C. Savage and family awakened; He
ret tlie electric engine in motion to fill
the water tank, his wife rushed to the
phono to call-Salem fire alarm, and the
neighboring country people. lliln.a
Aghlgren heard, either Mrs. Habcrt 's
awakening scream or Mrs. Parks', and
rushed to her phone. On hill 3, George
fcthepard heard the hollowing, he raced
across a foot log like a rabbit. Albert
Kgau's auto came from the south like
mad. He yolVnl fire at every farmhouse
liruca Jones' maclfine canio tearing
down from Tlnpinerc, picking up those
who Albert had awakened. They met an
aoto going south, who was it, had the
sneaking auto machine backtracked.
J-'roin all four roads farmers tore into
town, came with their milk cans. George
Thurman whirled from his bed and on
top of the Halert house was comman
deering, above the roar of the fire. Even
children were carrying buckets of water
as Savage's store of new tin buckets
were handed out to the fire workers.
But ajas, they had all been caught nap
ping. An awful odor mingled with the
omoke. Was it gun powder, or was it a
djad eat I Who was on the school
ground f We extend our sympathy to
all, especially to Mr. and Mrs. Markce,
who lost their home and Waconda ex

ELLA M. FIXXEY.
Independence, Or.. Aug. 5. Hops
around Independence will produce a
fair crop this year. There is some wor
ry about pickers, as applcaitious for
jobs are coining in slowly. Because of
the great reduction of acreage, the
number of pickers required, as compar
ed to former years, is small, and iu all
probability there will be sufficient help
when the picking scasorropens. A proju
iiient hop grower here has this to say:
"Looking at it from any angle, there
is no rosy future for the hop industry.
It seems to .be almost certain that it
will bo abandoned. The prediction is
being .rnada that there will not be 5000
bales grown iu Oregon in 1920. There
is a large acreage in the Independence
district, which will be ready for pick
ing within a few weeks, and because
of the present conditiou relative to
marketing and possible prohibition,
there is no sale. This has led gome
growers to decide. not to pick this years
' ' A great dil depends on what con
gress does u:bout prohibition legisla
tion when it convenes the last of Au
gust. The passage of the prohibition
bill would put a crimp in hop prices,
and practically all hops already sold
would remain in the hands of the
growers, for most contracts, if not all
of the.ni, carry a proviso annulling the
agreement if prohibition is put into
effect or nation wide prohibition legiS:
lation is passed. No other industry just
now is so uncertain as hop growing."
Oregon Prune Crop
Is Being Damaged
O. A. C, Corvallis. Aug. 5. The
prune root borer is causing a heavy
drop of prunes by girdling the trees
near the ground and shutting off the
sap when it is most needed. The dam
age being done the crop is estimated to
bo 10 per cent of the total. Not only
is the ciop being reduced but young
trees are being killed outright.
Much of the damiage from this in
sect can ibo prevented by coating the
trunks and base of the trees wilh a
whitewash made of 50 ponnds of stone
lime, 1 pound I aris green or dry lead
arsenate, 5 gallons concentrated lime
sulfur, one half pint blaekleaf "40,",
and 1 pound glue dissolved in hot wa
ter. Slake the lime and add the ingre
dients separately. Mix to a good thick
paint and apply wilh a brush, taking
particular care to cover tho bark thor
oughly, advises' A. B. Black, special
federal field agent at O. A. C.
LITTLE TALKS ON THRIFT
By S. W. STRAUS
, President American Society for Thrift
At no time!
since the be
ginning of the
war has the
the tide, we
of thrift and
economy, marshaled our economic
forces with such energy that within
recent weeks an entirely new aspect
has been given the situation.
While hunger is stalking abroad
in Hie countries of our enemies,
goading the people ever onward to
revolt and surrender, Hie practices
of- American thrift in the last year
have brought us to a place where
it is now officially declared that the
period of our anxieties in the matter
of food is ended.
So sacrificial have we been in the
readjustment of our personal habits
that the 220.000.OJO people of the
great allied nations can press on
ward in the fight undisturbed by any
such conditions as confront the peo
ples of the Central Empire. We
have readied a place, in our eco
nomies where we are able to send
abroad substantially 100.000,000
pot.nds of beef a month and we are
told that during the next twelve
months we can export 18,000,000 tons
of pork, -if need le.
Our economies in wheat have
brought us to th: place where there
will be a gradual improvement in
the quality of our bread p.nd the
quantity to be used. Our fat sup
plies are pronounced ample and we
are in a position to begin to build
!up reserves against the possibilities
.of poor crops next year.
Not alone in food is American 4
thrift beginning to tell in a colossal
way. Through tlie introduction of
various economics, stopping of leaks
and a general tightcning-uf) process
we will be able to save 25,000,000 to
3O.CC0.OCO tons of coal a year in the
250,000 industrial plants in the United
States without in any way reducing
the quantity or quality of the output.
In the Pittsburgh district alone a
saving of 81,000 tons of coal a year
has been- effected through more
efficient practices. One might, no
doubt, with the same splendid re
sults, run. the entire g&mut of our
activities. Whetever the flag floats
today, there you will find the prac
tices of wartime thrift.
But these great victories, made
possible by the practices of patriotic
thrift, should have the effect of
spurring us on to even greater suc
cess just as the success of our
soldiers abroad is an incentive to
them to fight the harder. There must
be no let-down in thrift at home any
more than there should be a let
down along the battlefronts of
France. - - '. ' " 1
Let us bear in mind also that
while our practices of thrift are
bringing assured victory to our cause.
we arc receiving invaluable personal
results through our thrift practices.
We have been notoriously lax and
slipshod in . matters of personal
economy. Our general ' habits of
thriftlcssncss have not been without
their deteriorating effects. We have
needed something to bring us to our
senses, to teach us that personal
thrifttessness is invariably a step
downward toward failure, that no
man can genuinely succeed in life
who is not first of all thrifty.
Two or three years ago American
thrift was a jest. Today it is a
noble actuality the most powerful
force that has-been brought to bear
against the sinister aggressiveness''
of German?. '

Pig Has Daily Walk And
Bath Three Times a Week
Taking his pig out for a walk each
day, allowing hci- to eat cherries, and
giving her a b.'th and brushing turec
times a week is the practice of Andrew
Sanders of hcotls Mills, au enthusiastic
pijr club nieiiibci who is working for a
prize at th j sii.te fair next fall.

afraid tho fdienago of grain will set he.

Survivors Of Tanker
Sank By Submarine
Washington, Aug. 5. Thirty sur
vivors of the tanker O. B. Jennings,
saink Sunday about 100 miles off the
Virginia coast by a TJ-boar, have reach
ed Norfolk, the navy dtpartnient an
nouneed today. The captain and thir
teen men are still missing.
A wireless call was received yester
day noon from the Jennings stating
she was being shelled by a submarine.
Naval vessels seat to the positions
indicated picked up tlie survivors. The
Jennings was a tanker of 7.S90 net tons
belonging to the Standard Oil company
and built in 1917.
Seventeen Percent Increase .
In Orders Received
New business received by the fir pro
ducing mills of Oregon and Washington
last w.-ek was nearly 0.000,000 feet, or
17 per cent in exeess of the new busi
ness of the previ.ins week.
Orders for tlm week aggregated 61 -764,
2-10 feet, of which 45,900,000 feet
will move by rail, 7, 014,154 by water
and 7,t5u,08t'i feet will.be delivered lo
cally. Despite the healthy, state of the rail
business, the government administratiou
is supplying more than enough cars to
meet the present demand. A total of
1809 cars were moved last week, thus re
ducing the balance of unshipped rail
buriiies on the books of tho mills to
7713 cars. A year ago this balance was
nearly 12,000 cars. The present balan
ce is the lowest in recent years and is
due to the car distribution service which
lias kept the mills well supplied through
the spring and summer.
It is anticipated, however, that when
the heavier movement of grain begins
which will be within the next few weeks
cars will not be so plentiful.
The mills now report many inquiries
from retailers and jobbers for their fall
supplies of lumber. As soon as the har
vest is over commercial business doubt
less will be exceedingly brisk. Indeed,
present demands are substantially in
excess of the demands a year npo.
In addition to the indications for a
lively movement in commercial lumber,
prospects for government orders of var
ious kinds cause the mills to prepare for
busy times ahead.
The Douglas fir requirements for tlie
government 's munitions plant on Neville
Island near Pittsburg have gone for
ward and are being delivered an schc
Other government needs such as can
tonment stock, ship timbers for eastern
yards and material for munitions plants
will 1 e filled, it is understood, as foon
as the orders are formally approved by
t!ie proper officials.
Anticipating heavy demands during
the late slimmer and early fall the mills
are runn-iig to full capacity nowand are
producing nearly their normal output of
lumber; The cit for the last week at
121 mills was 76.159,780 fvt, which was
within l,m,220 feet or 1.53 per cent of
