MADE IN OREGON.
The multiplicity and diversity of
products made in Oregon are not as
well known to the average resident,
or business maq for that matter, as
they abould be. Here In Oregon we
manufacture perhaps ninety per cent
vt the average requirements of our
citizens, but comparatively few realize
' the fact.
"Made in Oregon" should be the
slogan of every citizen. 'Every dollar
pent for home goods remains at
home, and the spender gets back at
least a portion of his - money in one
way or another every time he buys
a "Made la Oregon" product.
Oregon is destined to be one of the
great manufacturing states in the
I'nioo, but the 'I me it will require for
her to be in the foremost rank of
manufacturing states would greatly be
shortened if our people would make it
a portion of their dally duties first to
Inquire if the goods they are buying
are "Made In Oregon."
We have factories in this state
which today are struggling tor,, exist
ence, and which would be running
along smoothly, employing many more
men and women lf(each man, woman
and child in the state would inUt on
having the home product. It Is not
asked that our p-ole buy "Made in
Oregon" good in preference to goods
made elsewhere, unless the home pro
duct Is equal in qualitiy, appearance
and price to the same goods made
elsemhere. But even the casual in
vestigation of our citizens will Bhow
that our manufactories In most lines
are turning out goods today the equal
of any in the country, and the Manu
facturers' Association only asks that
when such goods are offered that they
tie given the preference.
This leads to another important
phase of this question.
The support of home industry Is the
duty of every citizen. We live by the
Interchange of trade. There Is small
need indeed for the people of Oregon
to go outside their state for every
day requirements of life, and If the
On-gon people would Insist on "Made
In OreKon" goods being sold them, re
tail dealers everywhere would keep
..up their stock to me-t the demand of
Cities and statex are built up by the
pay-rolls within the state. Property
values are kept up by the pay-rolls
t f the factories. Farm values are kept
tip by the demands for fraim products
from the cities, the manufacturing
centers. The whole problem Is one
which even casually studied will prove
to any citizen and to every man, wom
an and child within the state that his
i Parents Should Teach !

A DOC STORY.
He wss a common, "ornery" bound
dog. with stumpy tail, awkward frame
and beautiful eyes.
He lay on the pavement where the
strong wind Lad blown hiiu off b.s
legs. Lke Cassius. be bad a lean and
hungry look Ills paws hung limply
over the curbing. In the muguage of
the street, be was "all In."
Some street urchins tried to stir him
np by metliods known to them. The
dog looked bis utter helplessness from
pathetic eyes. The boys looked at the
bony ribs showing through the muddy
white kln and from b-ei- pity
A small crowd gathered. ,
Somebody got a beef sandwich and
offered It, but the stumpy tail stayed
limp and Ibe cadaverous jaws drippvd
The sandwlrb was untouched
He was too far gone to eat
The poor fellow wos unable to use'
bis skinny legs. His Hue eyes bliukfd
np at the muddy skies and duwu nt
the muddy street; be laid bis heud on
bis fore paws and shut bis eyes.
He was too dirty to touch.
The crowd dribbled away. Pedes- (
trian louked sknne at the starving
bound. By and by. if be remained
there, some scavenger would dump
blm into a cart
A tramp rsroe down the street
The tramp was as dirty and bedrag
gled s the dog. He looked at the t
latter a moment and then toiik blm np
In his arms.
The poor beast let his head rest I
airalnst the shabby coat of bis un
shaven' rescoer and gave a feeble show '
of satisfaction as to bis tail. And the
tramp and tbe dog disappeared down
Which Is a true dog story.
And 1 thought to myself
The very foor and miserable are al
ways best beled by those who are
miserable and poor. Mlnery not only
love company; It bned sympathy and
Why do respectable, right feeling
people do as the Levlte did when, see
ing tbe wounded man on tbe Jericho
road, be "panned by on tbe other side 7'
Tbey do uot know how to help.
M Suffering has not taught them
through Its chastening how to assuage
another's woes. They feel sorry for
tbe poor victim who Is wounded, but
they do not feel sorry enough to put
themselves out. They do not know tha
pity that stoops to minister.
And I thought also
Appearances are deceitful. Under
tbe rags of a tramp may beat tbe Im
pulse of "vmDSthetlc savior.
