Ola Man Green will bo missed round
For he was the sort o' man you
The quiet kind that some think
Yet lus' fit Into n nine, like this
Uke the trees an' plants an' the vines j

Which you walk by all oP the sum-'

But if one should die you'd know
Well, Old Man Green for a stretch
Has lived tround here, like a friend
Jos' a part o' the landscape, It ap
pears. That day by day we should wake to
Itonnd "him the youngsters loved to
. An" with him the old folks sat to
Although he never had much to say,
full many a troubled
Friend to us all, the great nn' low:
Knew the names of the young an'
Greeted us nil with his glad hello.
An' many a sad goodbye he told:
There's the place whore he used to stt.
Tilted back, in his favorite chair,
Tallin' us In to rest a bit
Or watchin' the youngsters playin
Old Man Green is, dead an' gone
An' the old town doesn't seem quite
There's a great soul lost, though It
Known to fortune or worldly fame;
Just a kindly voice on' a cheery smile.
Which are needed so In a place
Made every hour of his lifo worth
An' that is the way of men you miss.

HOW ONE CONCERN DOES IT
'nan does not like to make a sacrifice for the good of someone
else. Show him that on a straight merit basis you can meet out
side competition. In nine cases out of ten that very showing can
be made and when the point is proved you not only secure the
tusiness but you are in a position to hold it permanently. You
change from pursuer to pursued. h
It is now predicted another cut will be made , in the milk

Here's hoping that storm will keep, east of the Rockies ; out
here in God's country it is springtime.
TN connection with the campaign for a stronger "buy at home"
, policy, a valuable lesson may be learned from the experi-!
ence of the Golden V est creamery. When the local cream
ery was taken over by the present owners some years ago it was
snaking 3000 pounds of butter a month. It is now making from
15,000 to 17,000 popnds and selling it.
There was a time when it was hard to sell Pendleton butter
in Pendleton. It is now hard to sell any other kind of butter.
'This is due chiefly to the fact the creamery company has estab
lished a reputation of turning out a product of superior merit.
There a certain number who buy this butter because it is made
in Pendleton but most people buy it because it cannot be sur
passed in quality and is seldom equalled.
. When business is conducted on that basis it has a foundation
that cannot be questioned. People like to buy home products
and will usually do so when other things are equal. They should
be shown they can do this without sacrifice and on the contrary,
' with direct personal gain to themselves.
Much money goes away that has no license to travel. It could
do better right here at home. There are people who have
bought dry goods in Portland or elsewhere when they could buy
the same goods in Pendleton at the same price or cheaper. The
same is true of furniture and of articles in other lines. There
are cases galore on record where people have actually penalized
themselves by sending their money away. Better values were
right at their door and they did not know it.
As a matter of common sense people should study these
thing3 and find out what they are doing before they turn the
home man down. This is a time when such a policy is especially
to be commended because it is essential under present condi
tions that the resources of the community be conserved in every
possible way. It is time to stop the leaks and one big way to do
this ia to buy nothing outside the city or the county until you
have given your local people a chance. When money is spent
at home it goes into the local banks and may be used to keep the
"wheels of business and industry turning. Money sent away is
lost to us and we all suffer.
The "Buy at home" campaign is a good thing but it can be
most successfully conducted by emphasizing the merits of what
:we have to sell. It is poor psychology to let the purchaser think
he is doing you a favor by buying home products. The average

"During the hot weather months
attention should be frequently given
to the radiator; nt least, tlio owner
should see that it is kept filled, and
at intervals it should be flushed out
and filled with clean water. In con
nection with efficient operation of the
cooling system, fan belt adjustment
should be made for the fan is needed
in summer. The position of the spark
lever should be watched to see that it
is kept in an advanced position, thus
assuring better cooling of the motor.
Minor parts, such as spring
shackles wheel bearings, steering con
nections and universal Joints, require
oiling more often' in summer. It Is
well that a heavier grade of lubricat
ing oil be used in the motor, transmis
sion and differential than in colder
weather, and oil should be drained
from the motor at intervals not to ex
ceed every 1000 miles. Better per
formance will result when this is done.
"Careful attention should be direct
ed to the brakes to see that they are
kept in as nearly perfect condition as
possible, for during the summer they
get greater usage, with more traffic
to contend with and more cars on the
"Tire pressure should be watched
more closely on tires that have been
in use for a long period because tires
expand more in hot weather. The
owner should have a tire gauge ar.d
use it in inflating. In taking Ion?
trips the owner should be provided
with a good spare tire, and should go
over all the tires during the trip to
see that thev have no defects.
"Every owner wants to have his car
in the best possible condition during
the summer months, for it Is then
that he uses his automobile most. To
get this maximum efficiency, he must
exercise greater care In going over the

In Mississippi a law is that a man
cannot register Who cannot read the
constitution. An exception is: If a
man cannot read, the registration of
ficer may read to him a section of
the state constitution, and if he can
explain Its meanln; to the satisfac-
on of the official he may be register
ed. It will be observed that the of
ficial has the power of decision, and
of course a white man's explanation
s accepted, while a negro's Is reject
ed. It is a very simple and effective
method. But once, Just once, a negro
got by. He had gone In to register,
and as a matter of form the official
read from the constitution the provi
sion I have Just quoted. "Kxplnln
that," said he to the negro. "What
does it mean " "Dat means, ' as
sured the colorefl man, "dat a nlggah

through like a good sport and regis
