In neurly every livi com
munity there is some sort of un
urbanization doing hiisiricns un
der tl. ntyle of a Commercial
Club or a Itooster Hunch orI.
vclonrnont Lruiruo or norm; other
name indenting that its oliject
is to advertise the community
to nssist in developing the in
ilustrieH and to do what it can to
bring growth and prosperity to
th community In which it is
doing buainoHS. Neurly every
one of the clubs or organizations
kvns itself supplied with liter
ature deHcribing the country, the
city, the industries, the agri
cultural and horticultural devel
opment, its other and various re
nources, which literature is sent
out to all enquirers and to the
nmny fairs and gatherings all
over the country. It is an or
ganized effort to induce people
to come to that particular com
munity to make homes and to
estahlith industries. All of this
literature is written up by some
person paid to paint everythinx
in the brightest of colors. Only
the very best of everything in
mentioned and those things are
generally added to about SO per
cent, so that the eastern people
and prospective settlers who
have had so much experience in
reading such literature and in
vestigating the communities ad
vertised that they regard it all
is so much exaggerated as to
When the State Editorial As
guciation was in session a couple
of weeks ago in Portland, Mr.
Klbert Bede-. the new president
of the association, advanced the
propositi m of the newspapers
taking up this work with the
commercial organizations with a
vie of supplying prospective
homeseekera and others with a
few months subscription to the
local paper instead of so much of
the lMMster literature. The sug
irestion was without doubt one of
great merit. When a person in
the east geta a paper each week
fr-irn a community in which he
is interested, he can gather from
the news therein contained more
real information of a reliable
character than he can by read
ing nil the booklets that can be
secured. He can see what is
actually being done in the com
niunity; where Mr. Jones or Mr.
S.nith has raised some large
Pumpkins or potatoes; how Mr
P.rown has just gathered 25
boxes of fine apples from one
tree; how the Model Dairy farm
ist harvesting large crops of vari
ous kinds of hny from a 30-acre
tract, sufficient to enre for and
feed 25 head of good cows; how
a groat industry i employing
hundreds of men at good wages,
and where farms are for sale at
prevailing prices. In fact, all
the information one wants to
know and information that can
bo depended on. In St. Helens
we know that such a course
would result in much good to the
community in the matter of se
curing more desirable people and
Industries. There is hardly a day
passes but that the Mist gets
letters from somebody asking for
sample copy of the Mist; that
he or they are interested in St.
Helens and Columbia County and
want to read the local paper for
In order to better accomplish
the desired results from the cir
culation of the Mist in the east

House and City liall describing

page of information, a Coium'-
i-ouruy Encyclopedia, and
will run it each week. The Com
mercial club and the real estate
nniiH. together with many pri
vate people who have friendH
interested in the county, will sub
scribe for extra copies. In fact,
several of the firms have already
taken subscriptions. The Club
of this city will alao subscribe
for any respective settler who
is in earnest. We are going to
try this method. The Mist is
going to do its part towards giv
ing information that will result
in a growth and development of
the community and the other
people interested will have to
help us whether they want too
A noticeable feature of the
Circuit Court proceedings the
past two weeks was the number
of men charged with crime who
are unable to employ an attorney.
Out of seven men called upon to
defend themselves upon felony
charges, Jonly two had sufficient
funds with wtiich to employ an
attorney. The other five asked
the Court to appoint attorneys
for them, so that the county not
only has to pay the bills for their
arrest and board, but must also
pay attorneys fees to insure them
a fair trial. So it is' plain to see
the character of men who com
mit crimes. The fact that they
are poor men, of bourse is not
indicative of anything, but the
fact that so largo a proportion of
them have no funds, nor friends
nor means of defending them
selves indicates that the large
majority of criminals are from
the idle and indolent class.
At a recent meeting of the job
bers and manufacturers of Port
land it was decide! to make Buyers'
Week annual event, the next one to
be held from Aug. 10 to 15. 1114.
An oU'.cial report was made of the
results of the buyers' week during
Septemlter which showed thai buy
ers from 2'i'l stores in 150 towns
visited Portland. Of this number
t OS bought more than $500 worth
of goods, entitling them to a refund
of their railroad fare. While the
most of the buyers came from Ore
gon communities, Washington,
Idaho and Montana were liberally
represented and every visitor went
home at peace with himself and his
entertainers artd satisfied that his
time and money hud been well
A suggestion that might be profit
ably adopted throughout Oregon is
that contained in exchange to the
etfect that the I'nited States De
partment of Agriculture is to en
courage a"d assist in the organiz
ation of "pig clubs" among the
young people in every agricultural
community throughout the countiy.
It is pointed out that pigs are
everywhere a profitable crop, that
even ihe smallest growers can make
a little money out of hogs and that
every family can at least I wer the
cost of living by raising its own
,,ork. The "pig club" plan is a
good one and worthy of general
0. A. C. Notes
Oregon Agricultural College,
Corvallis, Ore. "Although the use
of lime-sulphur spray as an insecti
cido is more effective when applied
In the spring than in the fall and
winter, it may be applied now or
later with good results in the con
trol of scale insects." says Vrof- II.
K Wilson, head of the Crop Test
department of the Oregon Agri
cultural college. "It will destroy
young insects if It reaches them
shortly after they are hatched, but
it is not so effective against eggs of
.phis and other insects as is gener-
:ally supposed. Neither does it
jHeem to have much effect on plant
lice after they are a few days old.
j "Most eggs of plant lice and
i other insects hatch about the time
i the buds are opening in the spring.
Ihu spray should be applied about
the time the buds are showing
green or just after the buds have
opened to a blight extent on apple
trees and other trees in which the
leaf buds open first.
"While lime-sulphur may be used
with safety at the rate of six or
eight to one, it is just as efficient
under ordinary circumstances at the
rate of twelve to one. When used
in the spring its effectiveness may
te greatly increased by the addition
of one part of "Hiack-Leaf-40, " a
tobacco spray, to 1500 parts of di
luted lime sulphur.
If the compined spray is used
in the spring at the time indicated
practically all plant lice can be con
trolled, as well as several other
kinds of insects which cannot be
controlled by lime-sulphur alone.
The combination is effected by di
luting the lime-sulphur to the one-to-twelve
strength in the spray tank
and then adding the "Black Leaf
10 The combined spray should
be well mixed before using."
