$30 Will Not Be Able to Buy These Rugs in Sixty Days
You can't buy them today at any other store under $27.50, but within thirty or sixty days the prices' on domestic Rugs
Vill have 'advanced as a result of the European war to suph an extent that these very same Rugs selling this .week at
$19.85 will be selling at $30.00. Already the mills are refusing to sell, any rugs at the old-price schedule. The mills
cannot secure the essential dyes from Europe and consequently there will be a scarcity of rugs on the market.
This Large Purchase
Was Made Months Ago
At that time conditions were normal and the mag
nitude of our order placed secured a substantial
concession Jn price from the mills. For us to buy
these same rugs now at the same price would be sim
ply out of the question. "We could hold these rugs
until the prices reached the high-water mark and
then sell them at a large margin of profit, but this
is not our plan. We feel that selling these rugs at
the special price at this time will do us more good
from an advertising standpoint than anything we
could possibly do, so they go' on sale tomorrow at
onl - $18.85
Imported Dyes Are Used
Exclusively in These Rugs
America has never been able to produce
the rich dyes the mills Import from Europe.
Some mills may use domestic dyes, but the
qualfty of rugs produced will not compare
with these imported-dye rugs. The colors
are v.fery beautiful, blending into each other
in perfect harmony. The designs are exact
reproductions of old Oriental masterpieces,
while the texture of the rugs, is extra heavy
Axminster .and closely woven. The backs are
heavily sized to assure long service.
,Pay the Small Amount
of $l.QO Weekly
It any One should by any strange reason
ing question In the slightest degree the high
quality of these rugs the fact that we
frankly state we prefer to sell these rugs or.
the ' low-credit terms of $1 weekly ought
to convince him on that score. The terms
upon which these rugs are sold is the
strongest possible guarantee of their qual
ity that we could give you. You never had a
better opportunity to buy as good rugs forV
so low a price. .

EVERY HOME INVITES
BULBS' WINTER BLOOM
Rare Fragrance of Hardy Flower May Be Welcome Visitor With Jjittle
Care or Trouble if Plants Are Placed in Cellar or Closet toRoot.
NO MATTER where you live,
whether you have plenty of room
or are limited to small quarters,
you may enjoy the fragrance and rare
beauty of blooming bulbs, grown by
yourself fn your own home.
The attractive thing abut bulbs is
that they bloom In mid-Winter, when
flowers are scarce and expensive, and,
with ordinary care, they last longer
than any cut flowers you can buy.
Their .rich opulence and exquisite odors
are especially pleasing at the time
when other flowers are hard to ob
tain. Probably the one thing that keeps
every home from raising at least a
few flowering bulbs each Winter is the
Idea that is prevalent that bulbs are
hard to raise and that they are
"mussy" and dirty and that it is diffi
cult to get good results unless one is
an expert. The contrary is really true.
Bulbs are simple to care for and espe
cially free from the bother of hand
ling which so many people imagine.
Bulbs should be planted immediately.
Uin fact, they may be planted at any
time after the middle of September. By
planting at once beautiful blooms may
be enjoyed by Christmas time and dur
ing the months of January and Feb
ruary. -. " i
The first requisite is a cold, dark
corner where the potted bulbs may be
stored while taking root. A cellar or
attic or shed is acceptable, in fact, any
place where the thermometer does not
actually reach the freeilng point, but
where it is, still sufficiently cold to
prevent top 'sprouting before the root
system has been well formed. The
great secret of rich, well-matured
blooms is a strong root system, devel
oped before top growth has begun.
It is injportant that care be taken
In the preparation of the soil in which
the bulbs are planted. Soil taken from
the compost pile is best, that Is, soil
which has been enriched by having
been mixed with leaves, sod and gar
den refuse which has been allowed to
rot. If this Is' not available the rich
upper loam from the woods is admira
ble. Otherwise any good, rich, light
soil may be made to suffice. Keep fer
tilizers out of the potting soil until the
plants have been brought up . into the
light, when a little bone meal dug into
the soil, not too close to the bulbs, is
about as good as anything. Or liquid
fertilizer may be sprinkled over the
soil. Too much- fertilizer creates an
"artificial"" growth, which -results in
the decay of the-bulbs.
The bulbs, in pots, should be covered
with burlap while in the cellar. This
will be sufficient, protection from the
light, provided the windows in the cel
lar or closet are well curtained. The
old idea of covering the -bulbs with
ashes is a nuisance. - .
Bulbs should be watered thoroughly
when first potted, after which a good
watering about once every two weeks
Is all that they should have. The bulbs
should be planted so that, the nose is
visible. They should be stored for from
eight to 1$ weeks, in which time they
wll have developed a good root sys
tem and may then be brought into the
light. It is then that the forcing proc
ess should commence. -The fertiliser
may be added and growth will" be ex
ceedingly rapid. A well-developed root
system will generally result in ihe
roots being visible at the drainage hole
of the pots. In selecting pots insist
upon plenty of root room.
A few bulbs started now will prove
a source of real pleasure later in the
Winter. For the dining-room table or
the living-room they are Ideal, while
they make a unique gift for the invalid.
Their quick, steady growth and the
bursting out of the bloom are most fas
cinating. DAIRYMEN STOCKING UP
Larger Supplies Being Provided
. Than Usual for Winter in Polk.
BUENA VISTA. Or.. Oct. 3. (Spe
cial.) The farmers and dairymen
In the Lucklamute Valley, com
prising a large territory of Polk Coun
ty, now have in store a large supply
of hay for the Winter. The desire is
expressed to further Increase the al
ready large cream checks this Winter.
The silos are also taking In their sup

Many dairymen in Polk County now
draw monthly cream checks amount
ing to 100 or more. The farmers in
grain producing districts have learned
by experience that the process of mere
grain growing is insufficient, and that
the combination of raising crops and
milking cows is a successful one. The
long spell of dry weather has not af

ALFALFA YIELDS 3 CROPS
Baker County Production ' or - All
Grains Snows Increase
BAKER. Or, Oct. 1. (Special.) The
third crop of alfalfa is now being cut
on many of the ranches in the Imme
diate vicinity of Baker, where, condi
tions have been better ; for large hay
crops than in many years. The third
crop is proving to be almost as large
as the first and second. -. ,
The grain yield for the county is
placed at 100,000 bushels more of
wheat than ever before and about 25
per cent Increase in the barley and oats
crops. Farmers are hauling their crops
to the warehouses, but not many are
selling, the word having gone out to
hold for higher prices.
Rye in the Pleasant Valley district
averaged S5 bushels an acre. .
