Praiseworthy Fault
One that true economy must endorse
The only complaint we have ever heard about
"Revere" Coffee came from a consumer who said it
was "too strong." "Too strong" is a highly laudable
fault in a Coffee, and one easily remedied by
"Too strong" is not the same as "too rank." The
latter is a fault that often characterizes weak coffee,
and nearly always character zes very cheap grades.
"Too strong" simply means that
will produce more cups of the desired strength than
the consumer gives it crodit for, and for that reason
true economy prompts its purchase. The "per cup"
cost of "Revere" coffee at 40c a pound is no more than
when a 25c grade is used. The incomparable flavor,
rich aroma and satisfying tody cost absolutely nothing

Representative From Outside Cream

ports About the Business The
Farmers Cannot Be Deceived by
Any Knocker Who Is an Enemy to
the City and the County.
Some knocker against the Creamery
to bo built In Pendleton by the Com
mercial Cream Company of Salem,
has been traveling ovor the country
near this city tolling falsehoods about
the methods of the creameries oper
ated by this enterprising company.
Farmers from Birch creek say that
some fellow unknown to them, has
made several special trips among
them to ascertain the sentiment re
garding the creamery, and while fool
ing of the public pulse on the subject
has told all kinds of discouraging
tales of creameries in other places,
and has made every effort to prevent
them from patronizing such an insti
tution. The Intelligent farmers of thnt
thrifty community have not been In
fluenced hj anything said by this en
emy of the city anu county. They can
read figures and statistics published
on the subject and are Interested in
bringing ever)" profitable Institution
possible Into the county.
The Commercial cream company
onerates one of the largest creamer
ies In the state, at Salem, has a rep
utation all over the Northwest as a
solid, up-to-date Arm and will do with
a creamery In this city Just exnctly
what they say.
If 50 patrons can be secured, they
will begin the erection of a plant in
this city They will pav for butter

highest market price for first-class

the farmer and the creamery company
will arrange to gather tho separated
cream from each farmuouse, if so de
sired. An ordinary' cow will produce
from IS to 25 pounds of butter fat per
month, which, at the usual market
price of butter in this city, means an
income of from So to SS per month
from each cow. and in case of high
grade butter cows, over $10 per
month for each w.

i irneuody 7-bo is interested in Keep
ing a creamery away from this city
has done the knocking and people
should harshly turn down any enemy
of the city and county who tries to
prevent legitimate development.
Butter Is selling at "5 cents a roll
or 37i cents a pound in Pendleton
uow. Two cents less than the price
of butter would mean 353 cents per
pound for butter fat. A cow yielding
0 pounds of butter fat per month at
35V cents per pound, wourd bring
her owner an income of $7,10 jer
month. Twenty pounds of butter fat
per month is less than the average
yield, while 37H cents per pound for
creamery butter is the ordinary
There Is a profit in the business.
No knocker agaiusi the city need tell
you otherwise. La Grande Is starting
a large creamery. I,cwIston Is put
ting in one of the largest in the In
land Empire and the little city of
I'nlon has one of the most complete
creameries in the state, and cannot
supply the mines of Baker county.
Pendleton's location as a business
renter, renders her an especially fa
vorable point for such an institution.

Undertaker and Coroner Clash Over
Disposing of Paupers.
The wrangle botween Buchanan &
Co., the undertakers, and - Coroner
D. L. Smith, was finally settled this
morning, says tho Spokane Press.
These people have been having a lit
tle difficulty over tho pauper-dead
which have been lying at the parlors
of Smith & Co. Smith's is the offi
cial morgue of the county and the
coroner has sent several paupers to
tho morgue.
Buchanan has the contract to burv
the connty-dead at 112 for each body.
He claimed tho coroner should have
sent those bodies to him in the first
place, arguing that no- had plenty of
before he sent them to the .morgue.
On that account Buchanan refused to
call for the bodies. The difficulty
wns finally settled satisfactorily and
Buchanan came for them.

With Over 500 Active Members Now,
Pendleton Camp Has Set the Mark
for 600 by April First Reserve
Fund of Pacific Jurisdiction Will
Be Increased From $700,b.j to $V
J H. I.awrey, counsel commander
of Pendleton Camp No. 41, Woodmen
of the World. Is enthusiastic over tho
prospects for the spring campaign of
that order.
Head Commander Falkenburg hns
fent out notices to the different camps
that 12,500 new members are expect
ed from the Pacific Jurisdiction dur
ing this campaign, which will end on
the first of April and the Pendleton
camp is now doing Its share to bring
m this number.
"The membership of the Pacific
Jurisdiction must lie increased from
32.000 to 100.000 during this cam
paign," said Mr. 1-awrey yesterday
evening to an East Oregonlnn repre
sentative, "and v.e have set the mark
for this camp at 100 of that number.
Pendleton camp now has over 500 ac
tive members and this campaign must
bring the number up to 600, which
will be an easy task, Judging from
the number of applications now com
ing In, and the enthusiasm which per
vades the ranks.
'One of the other objects of this
campaign Is to bring the reserve fund
up from $1700,000 to Jl.000,000 as
one of the most worthy ideals of the
order Is to secure and maintain a re
serve fund adequate to all emergen
cies The financial foundation of the
order Is now beyonu question, but the
constant effort of every official and
member Is to make It still more se
cure by added funds and added mem
bers. "It Is not at all unlikoly that Pen-
uiciuu cuiup win uiect a iiiiiiuiug lor

This Is one of the issues now before
the camp, and is being fccriously dis-1
cusk-iI. The membership is so large
that It is iinwieldly In any of the 1
present lodge rooms available in ihe 1
city, and with the constant Increase
which Is bolng added, some radical "
change is necessary. j
"If the membership . .wind all at j 4.
iuiiu iuubc on me same nignt now, the
present quarters would not hold ovor
half the number. This Is nn unfortu
nate condition, and one which will
be remedied at once, by building a
Woodmen building, If a suitable lo
cation can be secured.
"This spring campaign finds 7S0
camps in the Pacific Jurisdiction, with
Pendleton ramp the largest In the
state of Oregon, outs.de of Portland.
Every member Is ex pec ten to bring
in a nrw member, If possible, and tho
campaign will close about the first of
April with a banquot in this city, in
which all the camps In tho county
will participate."
