Carload Of Gas To
Coming Next Week
Salem's gasoline shortage is to be at
least temporarily relieved In the near
future. That was the statement m
morning of John Harbison, of th
Valley Motor company. .
Arrival of 10,000 gallons, ordered for
Salem through Portland dealers from
an Independent oil company .is ex
pected early next week and should take
care of the local situation until the
first of next month when It Is believ
ed thee will be a general relief. Due
to the fact that the gasoline to be re
ceived next week must be handled
more quickly than ordinarily the allot
ments toiotorists will be considerably
larger, Mr. Harbison explained.
Costs of handling the carload will be
higher than usual and, although it is
possible that the fluid will be sold un
der cost, It may be necessary to charge
a trifle more than In the past, Mr.
Harbison stated. j
Unchanged conditions were reported
by the offices of the Standard Oil, As
sociated Oil and Shell Oil companies
this morning, with no definite Informa
tion as to the future. , j
At a meeting of local dealers In gas
oline, held with a view to determine
the advisability of temporarily hand
ling gasoline of Independent oil com
panies It was decided that It could not
be done, and no action was taken.

Just What 1 Need
Says Mr. R. Sturdivant,
490 Clay Street,
Who writes: : -
"I am now getting close to forty years of
age, and up to my thijty-fifth year, I had
never known a sick day. Just about this time I
began to be troubled with constipation and
viliousness, and it was not long before the
trouble became so aggravated that I felt al
most unable to stand up under the heavy work
that I was compelled to do in one of our local
steel plants. I hardly knew what a full pay
check looked like. I tried every ching that was
recommended to me, and none of them afford
ed me any more than temporary relief, and ,
they always lefj me worse off than I was be
fore. "Several months' ago, a friend of mine
told me to get a bottle of Bark Root Tonic and
give it a trial, I did so, and I will never
again be without it. It is Just what I needed,
and I believe tBat it has permanently cured
"I would not hesitate to recommend it to
anyone who is suffering (is I was, and if you
desire to publish this letter you have my per
mission to do o, as I feel that I owe a debt
of gratitude to your wonderful tonic.'"

The Farm Mortgage
Is about the only security on the
market which presents to the In
vestor a concrete and definite picture
of what is behind it. The average
investor who is not dealing in a large
way with securities likes to visualize
his security. With the modern ap
plication for a loan before him, tell- "
ing as it does the story of the ap
. plicant and a full description of the
land, he can form a mental repre
sentation of just what it is that
stands behind the note. This is the
strongest appeal of the farm mort
gage, and out of it grows a confid
ence that begets sound sleep. -
