Never was there a better illustra tion of the truth of the oft-repeated statement that it pays to trade at home than was contained in an ad vertisement which ran in several recent issues of The Sentinel. This advertiser’s product is made from the product of the farm and the advertiser stated that so long as he is able to dispose of the finished product locally he will be able to pay Portland prices to the producers for the raw product. The farmer who raises the raw product gets the benefit of the sav ing of the cost of shipping his product to Portland. The consumer, by using a home product, saves the freight to Cottage Grove from some outside point. That is not only an object lesson to the farmer. It is equally an ob ject lesson to so many others who think that a few dollars sent away make no difference in local condi tions. Z!< HINGS Thing. Ottura Think and What Wa . Think ot the Thing.
