AT TriE Smith Brothers Billiard Hall MONITOR uFFICE : Yamoreg Collection Agency Production is the great problem that confronts the man ana wo man who is not fighting in this war, as your labor is to get the sup plies to the front that the fighters need. We are wasting much laml in Oregon. We are not producing as much as we should. There lire many acres of land in Oregon that are not in crop and it i hiuld be in or ready to be put in long .before this tune. Organize your community to farm every acre. Do it now. It is necessary. It is imperative. It is urgent. Nearly 2,000 types and sizes of farm implements which have been gradually developed by manufacturers during peace-time coin peti tion have been recommended for elimination during the war by co:u milteeM of the National Implement and Vehicle Asociation. The jeet, according to a statement by the Council of National Defense, is to conserve materials, labor, capital and manufacturing facilities for war use. BUSINESS ITEM NOTES REACHING OUT FOR BUSINESS A aueceaaful town is one that cultivates the i'rieudship and good will oi its fcurouudmg country. The people who ure adjacent to ydu appreciate the kindness oi your consideration and support and ,wheu Uiey need anything that has merit they should have your whole, nouied suport to get it. Portland followed the old policy oi squee.e the country dry and build Portland ior many years and the result was that California, Waahhiglou aud Idaho pulled trade away Irom her that was rightfully hers. It has only been lor the last two or three years that alio has had any consideration lor the outlying country and she has not euough of the i'oresigbtedesa yet to do all she siiould d, hut she ia awakening. The same principle holds good in thu small towu. Build up your farming 'community. Uivu them good loads, make it easy ior them to market their crops, and help them to grow aud develop aud i'roui a scllish standpoiut you build up your lowu. Therefore it behooves indepeudeuce to get the spirit. STAND BY YOUR CANDIDATES The Republicans of Oregon have chosen their representatives to represent the party as their choice for different offices now to be voted upon, it is hoped the party will bo united and will do its ut raost to elect the candidates they have selected, it yiu believe 111 Uo publican principles you should vole for Republican, candidates They can better represent the parly thau the Democrats aud we say tow lay your prejudices aside. If this campaign has made you i little bitter to think some favored candidate 1i:ih not wyn, now jour time to be patriotic as a party man and forget it. The old rul is that the will of the miuority must be subservient to that of the ma jority. We must give up a few of our desires and wishes that there shall be harmony and we trust that this election will prove the rulo Vhat when the people of a great party chos a man the w hole party will unitedly back him and elect him.

Food Administration License No. 20709 Independence Oregon "A great net of mercy drawn through an ocean of unspeakable pain" "Fm afraid that's all I can spare 99 You're a regular, red-blooded, true-blue Ameri can. You love your country. You love that flapping, snapping old flag. Your heart thumps hard when the troops tramp by. You're loyal 100! You intend to you want to help win the war in a hurry. "Sacrifice? Sure," you've been thinking. "Just you wait. till they really need it." And you've hon estly thought you meant that too. But look yourself in the eye, now, and search up and down in side of your heart did you mean it? Did you really mean "sacrifice"? Listen : You feel poor. This third Liberty Loan, the high prices, the Income Tax you've done your bit You feel that you've given all you can spare. What? Then what did you mean? What's that you said about loving your country? What did you think the word "sacrifice" means? Surely you didn't mean, did you, to give only what you can spare T What about our boys who are giving their lives in the trenches? Are they giving only what they can "spare" ? How about those mothers and little "kiddies" in the shell-wrecked towns of that war-swept hell: hungry ragged sobbing alone? Giving up their homes, their husbands, their fathers. f, While we over here with our fun and our comforts we hold up our heads and feel patriotic because we have given what ? Some loose bills off the top of our roll. "fVe've given all we can spare!" Come, come ! Let's quit fooling ourselves. Let us learn what " sacrifice " means. Let us give more than we can spare let us 'give till the heart says stop." Every cent of every dollar received for the Red Cross War F und goes for War Relief. Vh.
