nf his trarhings on the question of
food, on which subject be wrote the
"Eat and drink such an exact quan

statesman and philosopher had he liv
ed In America during the period jnst
prior to the war when our annnal
food waste amounted to $700,000,0001
At present when our food regulations
are being made somewhat more leni
ent, the logic of Henjamia Franklin la
most appropriate. Over-eating and
111 choosing one's food are forms of
thriftlessness Into which Americans
with relaxing discipline should not
drift. One of the great lessons of the
war has been thrift and self discipline.
Let us muke these lessons net gains.
A fire that might have caused a ser

the yard of William MeGilchrist, Sr..
Sunday afternoon about 5 o'clock. Tho
fire was in the grass near tho McGil
christ home on South Comnioicinl street
and was graduully eating its way to
wards the house. It seems that a mini'
ber of people, saw the fire and tho
danger in which the house would soon
be placed, but no one stopped to put
it out, until Mr. and Mis. A. M. Han

Hundreds of men and wom
en suffer untold hardships
and pain without knowing
the cause. Of no comfort to
themselves or others, enjoy
ing nothing, they are in con
stant distress. They resort to
medicine without relief.
Headaches, stomach ail
ments, indigestion, brain
fag, and other disorders are
often directly traceable to
improper vision. If your
eyes are at fault, and this
cause is not removed, you
cannot be cured permanent
ly. If you suffer without ap
parent reason, if your ner
ves are unstrung, look to
your fyes ! Correcting them
may tone up your health,

Labor day in Salem was a vacation
for those who could manage to go
somewhere. Those who couldn 't arrange
to leave the city seemed to have taken
things very quietly. About the only
sign of life in tho afternoon was at the
moving picture theatres with the show
ing of two big films.
The changing o fthe schedule on the
Oregon Electric and Southern Pacific
has again been postponed a week or
so- It is understood several trains will
bo taken off each road. While there
may be several changes in the sched
ule, the Oregon Electric will continue
to care for the school children, as in
the past on the Woodburn run.

tion headquarters are now in the store
of C. M. Lockwood, 214 South Commer

appointed administrator last week.
Hereafter all who arc in need of sugar
for canning purposes should go to Mr.
Lockwood instead of the Commercial
club. No food administration business
of any kind will be transacted at tho
Commercial club. All business connected
in any way with the Marion county
food administration will be transacted
by Mr. Lockwood.
More than 100 men, Including the
chairmen of the districts in Marion
county for the coming Liberty loan,

afternoon to hear an address by John

who could easily loan the government
$1000, should not let off witH a mere
