THE OLD SOLEMN TARLOU
t want to e 'em romping on the run
and on the chairs.
And I rather like to fancy that the
home we keep la theirs:
like a houae that'a ready for the
thing ther want to do.
Not one that's stiff and solemn her
the furniture U new;
Let 'em ban at the piano, let 'em
gn it a they choose, .
Ther la nothinj here so costly that it
wasn't bousht to use.
There waa once a house 1 know of.
Where the parlor door waa
And If vounKftera stepped inside It all
the jrmwn-ups there werej
And If sticky little) flneera touched a
UNe or chair.
There was always trouble brewing, for
all thinirs were sacred there;
And back then 1 made my mind up
that when I were older grown.
There would he no solemn parlor in
the house I called my own.
Let 'em climh the chairs an' rockers,
let 'em wear 'em out In Joy,
Let the tables and the sofa show the
thumbprints of a boy,
Let a little girl make merry in what
ever way she will.
And though furniture grows shabby, I
will gladly pay the bill.
For I'd rather chairs are battered,
than their hearts should know
And I want no grand piano which the
youngsters cannot use.

WHEN THE FARMER PAYS HIS GAS BILL
yyNE burden our farmers find it hard to escape is their heavy
I I bills for gasolene and oil. iou would be astonished to
v-' find how these charges mount Furthermore, such bills
must be paid in cash and the money leaves our territory. In
more cases than one farmers have found embarrassment in pay
ing for oil and gas this year because of necessity the banks are
ery conservative with their loans.
wow this suoject is one that may he treated irom varying
angles but certain facts are plain. In relying upon oil and coal
for fuel we are all taking chances. Those products are exhaust
ible and a depleted supply, or prospects of such depletion, enter
strongly into the price that is charged. We will learn this
more and more as time passes.
The northwest must have its hydro electric power developed
and the sooner the better. In the province ofOntario, Canada,
electricity is being used freely on the farms, operating many
kinds of machinery, including threshers. When developed as
in Ontario, with a view to serving the public, electricity becomes
the cheapest and best source of power. Its use is being extended
all the time as improved devices are broughtinto use.
Electricity is the ultimate power for the industries of this re
gion, including agriculture. We have sources of power in
abundance and to allow this energy to go unused is a reflection
upon our ingenuity.
If every time a farmer pays $100 for gas or oil he will write
to a congressman or a senator demanding steps that will bring
our white coal into use it will not be long until something
GIVE THEM A CHANCE TO CATCH UP
tew a story from Ashland says that the committee in
l charge of the China relief fund has raised fully $975 and
will be over the $1000 mark soon. Many weeks ago the
Umatilla county Quota of S9o00 was fully raised and local flour
purchased with tnat money is now upon the high seas' en route
to China. All this is testimony to the generosity of our people
but the question arises if hereafter it would not be well to slow
uown on such drives until the rest of the country can catch up
