Its Hurry Up Now
If you haven't sent in your guess, little folks, it is high
time you are doing it.
We gave you plenty of time, but it will soon be the
of May, and after that no more guesses can be accepted.
if you want to try lor one of these cash prizes we are offering
you will have to hurry up.
SEVENTY DOLLARS is what we are going to give to
children in Oregon who furnish the best reasons why this house
is able to sell as it does, the very best pianos at much lower
prices than any other house on the coast.
There are just lots of good reasons and many of the children are guessing
them. Talk it over with your father. If he cannot help you ask any busi
ness man that you know. He will be able to give you a few points. Ask
them if a house does an immense wholesale business, what sort of freight
rates it is able to secure and what sort of prices it is enabled to make; and if its
instruments are shipped without boxing; if that saving in weight is of any
advantage. Ask them which is best, large sales at 'moderate profits or small
sales at great profits whether it Is better to have a few or a great many peo.
pie find out that your pianos are strictly high-grade and reliable and its prices
Then make your own conclusions and sit down and write what they are.
The contest is going to be a big one, much larger than we thought it would be.
Guesses are coming in from all over the State and it is a great pleasure for us
to learn how many people, even the little folks, are familiar and appreciate
what we have done in supplying high-grade instruments at low prices. You
do not want to miss the opportunity of showing how bright you can be and of
getting a prize, too.

If there is anything Molalla can be
proud of itis its enthusiasm in the cause
of the Grange. The hall erected at the
Corners in the short time, since the or
ganization cf the subordinate here waa
prelected would be a credit to any com
munity . Notwithstanding the charming
spring weather and the pressure oi iarm
work, the attendance on Saturday after
noon was about 80 strong. In the fore
noon 12 new members were voted in.
During the lecturer's hour (J. V. Har-
lese) the main topic of discussion was the
wool pool. S. rhilippt, a wool pooler
from Lane county, who asserted private
ly that be had spent $3000 in acquiring
information on wool, and had borrowed
$200,000, made a Bhort address stating
bis scheme, ue would pay tz cents a
pound, and after he bad deducted
cents per pound from whatever he got
over 14 cents, be would turn over what
was left to the seller. Hut, an the wool,
having been bought outright at 12 cents,
would be absolutely bis, the seller
would have no means whatever to make

cents was equitably coming to him. bis
wool pooling scheme, which some of the
facetious grangers called "wool pulling,'
was given tbe cold shoulder, and the
effort of tbe wool growers of Molalla to
form a pool of their own is being vigor
ously Dushed. George Ogle, J. V. Har-
lessand John Sawtelle,as the committee
of the grange, have tbe matter in

the trusts and unions are tightening
their grin on tbe farmers. He stated

If farmers generally would fortify
themselves agaioBtsuch onslangh's of
their fellowmen as Dr. Thomas has
thev could tell the manipulators of high
priced horse Bhoeinit to whistle in the
wind. He has not alone a shop of his
own where he can make everything in
the iron or steel line needed on the Oak
Point Farm, but by digging a 200-yard
ditch be obtained waterpower sufficient
to run a circular saw for cutting his tire
wood and a mill to chop all the grain
fed on the farm.
The local telephone line, five miles in
length, with Levi Kobbins' store aB
center, where it connects with the long
riiHirtiH'H line, is so much of a success
that whenever the phone of any one of
the 10 householders on it gets out of fix
he feels lost. He actually can't talk to
his neighbors without hunting them up.
It will not be long before several more
local lines- will established and a switch
board lor long distancing them all is in
place . Wayne Rubbins and Dr. Thomas
were the pui'iie movers in the telephone
scheme, the latier's mechanical ingenu
ity coming specially into play.
