One of the first requisites in advertising is to make the
surroundings of the place attractive. V T . : " -
A well-kept lawn, neat fence, clean show-stands and
neatly written bill board announcements aid in selling pro
duce on the farm to tHo same extent-that attractive ! windows
and well-arranged goods do in the city.
j Absolutely essential to permanent success is, of course,
full measure, good quality and fair prices. - , , , .
The naming of farms is important. It provides reference
which is invaluable in a business way. Every, satisfied pur
chaser is a living1, advertisement and it is necessary that he
should be impressed with the name of the farm from which
he made his purchase so that he can readily use it when
directing his friends or when repeating his own transactions.
ITie.'name shoukj be simple but distinctive. v'V , '
The present tendency is toward increased advertising
as an aid to solution-of the farm market problem.

WATER WORKS VALUATION NOT LONG TAsE
: An engineer representing the city (or the people) and
oncj representing the water, company could in a very short
time get! the true, and just 'valuation of the Salem water
system f - - - : .. r
. i For the, records of the water company are'well kept. '
An engineer whose word is abbvereproach anct ! whose
ability is unquestioned recently' stated that the records of' the
Sa(em water cotopahyVare among the best Jn the whole
country; that theV. have been kept with unusual faithfulness
and are accurate far above the usual. ;
In border td voe intelligently upon the purchase of the
water .works4,, the people should be shown very completely
what they are proposing to buy. But competent engineers
could make up the . itemized statement in a verysshort time.
The rules are well marked, through long experience and by
many-court decisions. V ;
i The cost "should be what the rules allow, not more, nor
necessarily any less -," - v
i Ji And &t that cost there is no doubt that it "would be a
good buy for the municipality for the reason that the city
can borrow., money at a lower rate than is possible for, a
private individual or company; also, arid for the same reason,
thij city" will save money by making improvements on a more
permanent basis, looking to the growth of the future- !,' ;
i j ; And there is vastly greater' possibility of getting moun
tain water .with municipal ownership than with private own
" ership. In fact, such an investment might be considered a
vcry hazardous ope by a private individual or company, and
impossible, indeed,! to finance ithrough" borrowirig; while it
might be snown to ; be a good investment for the city, on
acpount of lower interest rates and the fact that; the city
could afford to go to some lengths, for thadxertisjupg-value
: oft mountain water" : V'- . ,;;-v'v'4 r--
i Though there is in fact "not a great - ideal 'of Teal virtue
in this, i , This is well illustrated ;by the - fact that SeattJe,
having mountain water, treats its supply, Just as -the Salem
water company treats its supply,; brought from wells sunk
in the sands. There is no absolute safety otherwise, in any
jarge water supply. . vu ;
The use of identification Jabels, cards ;o'rl stamps with
every container of -farm orchard or garden products would
be profitable investment for the .seller. It is a type of effec
tive advertising, a sort of affidavit a3 to quality which creates
confidence in both the product and tne producer.
; Salem is adopting head-in parking It will : have the
virtue of accommodating many more machines, which is not
to be disregarded.' But the number of accidents will hot
likely be decreased. Perhaps we will before long hear a
demand for some other style of parking. , , -

ARE OUR DAIRY INTERESTS BUSY?
'"Olemargarines and other butter substitutes are owned
and controlled by the large meat packers and Standard Oil
interests, who are now reaping enormous profits on the sale
of .their products resulting from the high prices oncreamery.
These interests can well afford to write off a loss on a limited
amount of natural butter when they can make millions out
of, the, increased prices for. their own products. ,

grca t . market paper. No' one is likely-to dispute the. truth of

She was measuring coffee into

she had added hot water,' she pnt
the pot -on the stove, pulled a fry-

of bacon in it.
