Oregon and Oregonlans, and yet you pack
your shelves with every foreign brand of
goods you can get. You pass by our own
wholesalers, who have the freshest, most
nutritious and cheapest goods on the mar

Stop and consider, are you getting the
most nutritious food and best clothing for
your daily expenditure of money? Look
around you and see how end where your
grocer buys. Does he pay exhorbitant
freight bills, buying from abroad?
Listen. You cannot get something for
nothing. It's the popular demand of the
age. Look the measure square in the face
and realize It. When you get a good article
you pay for it. Make a study of your daily
needs and you will soon see that by buying
home products you are buying the freshest
and be s, and also helping the farmer and
manufacturer. Then, too, you are not pay
ing freight charges, for the consumer Is
the one who pays.
By patronizing home industries yon are
establishing a pay roll, the sign of pros
perity in a community.
Then, too, remember, so long as you have
the climate, soil and brains to develop the
products and a- ready market, hard times
will be unheard of.

way, has placed Albers cereals, Holy milk.

DRY PROBLEM FACED
LA CENTER MUST FIXD MEANS OF
REPLACING LICENSE INCOME.
If Three Saloon Yielding 93400 ' Are
Shut Up Maximum Taxea That
Can Be Levied Are $620.
VANCOUVER, Wash.. Sept. 20. (Spe
cial.) Reports from La Center, a small
town in this county, indicate that the
Town Council has a real problem to
solve. At a recent election a '"dry" Coun
cil was elected and later a petition
was presented, signed by about 300 pe
titioners, requesting that no more
licnse3 be granted to saloons within
the corporate limits of La Center. The
Council is to act in favor of the peti
tion; in fact, the license for one sa
loon has expired and has not been re
newed, and the licenses for the other
two will expire in a short time.
Each saloon has been paying- $800 a
year license, and this netted $2400 an
nually. For years, it ls understood, no
tax levy has been made, and street 1m-
provments and other necessary expenses
have been met with the annual Income
The assessed valuation of property
in La Center is $62,000. Ten mills ls
the limit that can be levied for general
expense, which would net $620. As the
full amount, $2400, has been spent each
year, and the income will be but $620,
some method must be found whereby
more Income will, be forthcoming.
RAIN RUINS DALLAS FAIR
Exhibits Declared Excellent, but At
tendance Is Cut Down.
DALLAS, Or.. Sept. 20. (Special.)
The second day of the Polk County
Fair was practically ruined by the
heavy rain. Thursday night a heavy
electric storm visited this section, fol
lowed by one of the worst downpours
of rain that has been witnessed here
in years. The rain continued to fall
all Friday and late into the night. Few
were brave enough to attend the fair.
The amusements did a poor business.
Yesterday morning it cleared off
somewhat and the sun shone most of
the day. The exhibits and amusement
features were the best seen here yet.

WEIGHT AND MEASURE REQUIRE
P. S. HolbrooU. of United States Bu

SALEM, Or., Sept. 20. (Special.)
Declaring that If action were not taken
soon Oregon would become the dump
ing ground of incorrect weights and
measures and non-standard packages
of goods discarded by other states, F.
S. Holbrook. of the United States Bu
reau of Standards of the Department
of Commerce, has conferred with State
Deputy Sealer of Weights and Meas
ures Buchtel with regard, to preparing
amendments to the Oregon law for sub
mission to the next Legislature.
Mr. Holbrook said the Oregon law
was far from being a model and that in
many respects it was not workable. In
place of County Sealers of Weights and
Measures appointed - by the County
Courts, he urges the appointment by
the State Department of district seal
ers who will be directly responsible to
the State Department.
"The idea is to provide a plan for
giving the deputies continuous work."
continued Mr. Holbrook. "Under the
present arrangement many of the
County Sealers are not continuously
employed in this work and as a result
little is accomplished. In many parts
of the state several counties should be
Included in one district. This scheme
would in no way disrupt or Interfere
with the work in large cities like Fort
land, which maintain their own de

FARMER ADVOCATES, AUTO

Mr. Gentry bought a 1912 machine
and replaced the back seat with a car
