This would seem to indicate a
better financial condition, easier
money, and renewed confidence.
It is about time that something
of the sort is reported. There
are a lot of people beside real
estate people in the state who
has felt the pinch of times and
we will all welcome a change.
Mothers who send their child
ren to school with a nickel to buy
a mid-day lunch, or who fill their
dinner pails with cucumbers,
cold cabbage, pie or similar indi
gestive food should. not be sur
prised because the children make
poor grades. Aside from being
poor food such things require
long degestive periods and so de
prive the brain of a normal sup
ply of blood.
So Multnomah did not distin-
quish herself by going dry.
Well, it came about 9,905 nearer
going dry than most of the
people anticipated, and that is
doing pretty well for the biggest
booze center in the state.

ATRONIZE YOUR HOME NEWSPAPER!
Although there are many reason* why EVERY ONE
SHOULD DO ALL IN HIS POWER TO HELP THE
HOME PAPER, it is self evident that the men who can and
should do the most are the merchants. Their success means the
success of the newspaper, and none will deny that the SUCCESS
OF THE NEWSPAPER IS MAINLY DEPENDENT ON
THE MERCHANTS. The newspaper is vitally interested in the
success of those who have things to offer to the community.
Women and many men nowadays read the advertising columns
almost as closely as they do the news columns.

Merchants of a town, those who supply its daily needs, invaria
bly are PUBLIC SPIRITED CITIZENS. They are the men
who make up the boards of trade. They are always in the fore
front of an» agitation looking to the BETTERMENT OF THE
MUNICIPALITY. Their cause always is identical with that of
the home newspaper. There should lie a spirit of co-operation be
tween the merchants and the home newspaper.
