MIDDLE- CLASS WOES.
A citizen who calls himself a member of that debat
able institution, the "American middle class", is full of in
dignation as he considers its wrongs and misfortunes. It
is the most numerous class in the country, he says, and in
many respect the most important. Yet it has long been,
and still is, placed between the upper and nether niill
ttone" of capital and labor.
It is less fortunate than labor. For labor, being or
, ganized, can deal with capital on equal terms, and even
j dictate to it; whereas, the middle class in its relations
with capital is unorganized and helpless, and in its rela
tions with capital is unorganized and helpless, and in its
: relations with labor it is disregarded and tyrannized over.
"The middle-class man is merely one of a very numer
ous and unorganized and unorganizable class, a cog in the
industrial or economic machine, or scarcely that, as even
the smallest cog in a machine that cannot be misplaced
without injury to the running of the whole machine,
wliereas, the man of the middle class can dron out or be
dropped out without the slightest jar to the . great
Machine, in which, nevertheless, he plays a nee'ded and
) important 'pail. To him the law of, supply and demand
. applies in all its rigor and stringency. He may be dis
' charged preemptorily with or without reason as may suit
lils employer, and he has no redress, while the lowest and
most rudimentary member of the labor class may be kept
in his place by his union on peril of a strike.
"And while the middle class man has no set scale of
wages, no number of hours he must work, the lowest mem
ber of the labor class has his scale and works only a cer
tain and constantly decreasing number of hours at usually
increasing wage. And even unskilled labor during the
past four or five years has made wages that place it finan
cially far above the average of the middle class, whose
wage has known no increase but whose living expenses
have mounted higher and higher each year."
These are, in the main, real grievances, as every ln-
will restore the inflamed tissues and
orgnrs to normal health.

The Portland department stores are making special
efforts to catch the trade of the people living in the coun
try and smaller towns, paying railroad fare as an induce
ment for people to trade in Portland. This kind of com
petition from the over-grown city department stores and
the mail order house is of course the hardest competition
the merchant of the smaller town, in any line, has to con
tend with, and he has but one weapon with which to com
bat it. The Oregon Retailers' Journal tells him to adver
tise in his local paper and back up the publisher to fight
for the principle of trading at home, which is excellent ad
vice. As a matter of fact every resident of any commun
ity should trade at home as much as possible, although
at times he may find it necessary or advisable to break
the rule, but this should be the exception. The retail deal
er may best influence him to do this by keeping the lines
of goods he carries before the public, because often one
does not stop to think of the far-reaching effect of the pol
icy of sending their money out of the country.

J. J. Collins, deputy internal lev-

headquarters in Salem in the post of
fice building. His business just at
present is in correcting returns made
for the income tax, especially where
par'ios sought no assistance but just
figured out by themselves the amount
that was due the government at the
rate of b' per cent. It seems that many
in making out their income statement
made the mistjike of putting in the
purchases of machinery and repairs to
buildings as expense of doing business,
while they should have cowe under
the head of permanent improvements.
Some returns were received where the
erection of a garage was placed under
the head of expense instead of im
provemen's. It is to correct these mis
takes that Mr. Collins is writing sev

THE PROMOTER'S WIFE

I'm often weary of the wind; I sometimes think it
.should be tinned (the British word for "canned"); it's
hard to seem serene and gay with all your whiskers blown
away, by winds resistless fanned. I sometimes sit le
ueath a tree, and take a look to comfort me, and count
t n happy hours; 1 11 doze, and read, and lead and doze, m
l.ale the fragrance of the rose, and ether moral flowers.
