I believe that it was Mother Eve
who first conceived of the possi
bility of making money at home.
and the idea grew, because it filled j
a pressing need in almost -every
household. But of all the wild and
impractical schemes that unscru
pulous persons have set afloat,
ranging from knitting machines to
addressing envelopes at home and
embroidery in your spare time and
selling articles "needed in every
home," -there were a few of these
that appaled much to farmers'
wives, who are proverbially; in
need of small change or "pin mon
ey," even though provided with all
that is really necessary in the way
of food and clothing. Of course a
lot of them, (so I read, but I never
happened to know them) had road
side refreshment stands, or fruit
stands if they lived on the main
traveled roads; or they took sum
mer boarders, or they hung out a
signj "Fresh eggs, fresh milk,
rich.! Or they hung Japanese Ian
home made nommy." and soon got
terna on the clothes line and serv
ed chicken pie suppers on the lawn
at a dollar a head. Well, maybe
so, but if they were anything like
the writer, it must have been a
season of misery io have one s
home invaded at all hours by
strangers whose children stirred
up the cats, broke the cherry trees,
alarmed the setting hens, and then
expected all concerned to behave
as If they enjoyed it.
Egg money was once the woman
farmer's standby, but that too has
passed away, for the country
stores would call the police if you
aBked them for money for your
eggs nowadays. You must take
their' worth ia' flour, baron. of
dried beans, while it may be that '
your soul hankers for a new mag- .
axine. or a pair of silk "step-Ins"
or a bottle of violet perfume. I :
have been led to maje these re
marks by that eminently worthy

all. about it, but-for the benefit of
the residents of the cities I will
say that it contains fifteen columns
ot wsat ads on one side, with the
opposite side devoted to Miller's
goods. It is read, so they claim
(and I do not doubt It) by 3C.00A
people. Only farmers are sap
posed to make free use of Its free
advertising service. 1 think Mil

do not read their own advertise

The editor of The Statesman
has made his annual request to
me to write something about the
progress of bulb growing id this
section. There is not much to
say, unless I indulge in a repeti
tion of similar articles printed in
t.ie past; that the business is
growing, that every, year buyers
all over the country, are more and
more looking to Oregon for their
supply ot the choicer high-class
varieties, and that each year 'the
letters received more and more
indicate that Oregon c - bulbs are
making a name for themselves,
second to none. . ' ' I

trade secret, but one perhaps of

template the stressing In our -ad
vertisements this year of the-tact
that our 'stock is raised-in the
Willamette valley. This fact will
be emphasized month after month
during the entire bulb selling sea-;
son in advertisements that will
reach thousands ot gladiolus'
growers in every part of thel
world.' These advertisements in

some effect in spreading the name
