TO HOME B U I L D E R S
A GUIDING HAND AND MONEY SAVER :
i How much rent have you paid in the last ten years?
Are you thinking of building?
Can I offer my help and .show you how you can own your own home?
It takes a little nerve, to be sure, and perhaps you don't know as much
about building values as you would like to, and so hesitate to build. V ; ' - '
I will gladly estimate any house plans you may have. If you are
thinking of home building, it will pay you to see me.
I will give you my help whether you build with me or not.
My motto i3 "Turn out good work and satisfy my customers."

exceptionally low figure.

Fifteen new listings were mailed
to members of the Multiple Listin
bureau of the Marlon-Polk County
F.ej.ty association Saturday by
Miss Martha Leavenworth, execu
tive secretary. This brings the
total number of. listings in the
Lureau to 232.
Each of the 25 members of the.
bureau receive a full description,
prices and terms of li properties
lifted with the bureau. Through
this cooperation a person listing
his property with the buieau has
25 agents handling his property
instead of one and at no greater
tost. The chief feature of the
bureau, as far as the purchaser
is concerned, is that it eliminates
shopping for property.

products when they reach the con

over it is already doing it.
Statistics are tedious, but they
are very significant these days. In
900, 60 of every 100 people lived
on the farms, contented and hap
py. Today 60 of every 100 live in
the cities and both the 60 and 40
per cent are dissatisfied and rebel
In New England, New York and
Pennsylvania there are today 75,-
000 unoccupied farms, four and
one half million of formerly culti
vated land abandoned.
In the middle Atlantic states
there are 2,775,000 less acres of
improved land than there were in
1910. In the east north central
states there are 16,000 less farms
today than there were in 1910.
In Indiana there are 10,000 less.
in Illinois 14,000 less and 10,000
less in Michigan. These figures
are from the government census.
they are facts.
In Oregon thousands of ranch
ers' have left their farms during
the past four years and thousands
more will leave the coming year,
unless conditions speedily change.

recent wheat meeting before the

There are a comparatively few
middle handling agencies that are
taking the profits that should go
to the producers and the lower
prices that should go to the con
sumers. These middle agencies,
not only in agriculture but in man
ufacturing industries, are holding
up national prosperity to a large
extent by their profit tolls.
From both producers and con
sumers should come organization
to control production from the
farm to the retailer. It would not
be a formidable undertaking if
they would act together, and
enough of them act. With produc
tion, transportation and marketing
controlled, these many large mid
dle profits and expenses could be
eliminated, or retained by the pro
ducers and consumers in coopera
tion. And if they were so retain
ed and divided, there would be
prosperity in agriculture and con
tentment in labor. Two dollars
profit added to one dollar's worth
of goods is what ails this country.

Remodeling of the front of the

the appearance of the building,

prominent corners of the city.

What ails the nation's agricul

Too low prices to the raisers re

Too high prices to the con-
result in less consumption and less
If there could be a norma ratio
betwee nthe producing and selling
prices the whole country would be
vastly benefitted; and it would
seem that an aroused people could
work out one.
We have two great classes on
the prosperity of which depends
the welfare of our country pro
ducers and consumers. The only
condition that will really make an
Oregon farm a real home, and one
that will hold the boys and girls,
is a condition under which the
owner or renter feels certain that
he can sell his products at a mar
gin of profit sufficient for him to
make a home. The only condition
under which, the working class out
side of the farms will be continued
is when they are able to buy the
necessary food products of . . the
farm at ft fair profit margin over
the price the farmer receives, and
be able to save a little from the
wages or salary.
