Question of Water Bills and
Old Ordinances Causes
WOODBURN, Oct. IS The
city council convened as usual In
the city hall Tuesday night but
accomplished little in thie line of
business, mainly because there
was little business to be attended
The regular routine of business
-was called for and under the
head of "miscellaneous" the gen
tlemen of the council named the
budget board for this year to
work out the budget for the com
ing year, John Hunt. E. J. Allen,
- George Landon, Eugene Courtney
and Fred Evendon.
The question concerning the
water bills and the collection
' thereof was lengthily discussed
pro and con. Most of the mem
bers of the council objected to
shutting off a patron's water
when they he!d a 1 3 deposit be
longing to that pel ton whose wa
ter had been discontinued. Oth
er members and city employees
present confirmed that the depos
it could not be drawn on to pay
the water bill unless the person
owing the bill should more out of
town and there was no other way
of collecting. If the patron so
desired he could draw the depos
it and pay the bill but he could
not have water until another de
posit was payed.
During a lull in the rush of
business the reports of the secre
tary and treasurer received were
allowed to go oa record.
J. J. Hall then assumed the ca
pacity of a common citizen and
asked why he had not been al
lowed to place a sign in front of
his place of busine-"?. This lead to
another lengthy discussion and
caused, some iaade iuate, musty
old ordinances of days gone by
to be brought out and, a iter due
consultation to be condemned.
No definite action was taken on
either the water discussion or the
condemned ordinances and the
council adjourned at a late hour.

POTATO CROP POOR
N PRATUM DISTRIC
PRATUM, October 16. With a
few exceptions the potato crop in
this community is probably one of
the smallest in the history of this
Most of the farmers have quit
the potato business, at least in a
large scale. Since 1925 prices have
keen so low that it took a real
manager to make both ends meet
in the potato game and rather
than to take another chance farm
ers planted less potatoes.
Now some of them will not
have enough for their own use.
Some have sold the few they had
to spare early in the fall at two
cents a pound. Others who have
some to spare are holding for
three cents per pound. Some will
probably store a few until spring,
expecting a high price.

DO YOU ACCUMULATE a colledion of dry "heels"
Most housewives do until they adopt the Hillman's
Snowflake loaf. The pound loaf seems to be just a
little small for the day by day needs of the average
family, while two loaves are jus a little too much.
Now wc come forward with the happy medium a pound and
a half loaf and make it possible for you to always have fresh
bread, without waste.
And the Snowflake loaf is the same delicious, pure food pro
dud that has made this Butter-Nut J)akery famous in the Salem
territory. It's rich in vitamines, and a health builder for child
ren and adults. Just a little more-convenient in size and shape,
slices easier and toasts to perfection. The square slices are ideal
for sandwiches and party use. Ask your-grocer for H ill man's
Snowflake Butter-Nut bread.
