Individual are often grateful, but
communities, commonwealths and na
tions seldom or never are. We all
know of instances wherein towns,
when opportunity arose, have turned
against the most active am! public
spirited of town buibfer. Oregon
allowed its greatest senator of all
time to be buried beneath the repub
lican landslide. Woodrow Wilson is
destined to become one of the out
standing figure of history for his
work in behalf of world welfare, yet
has been discredited by hi country
men; ami now the great statesman
and patriot of Greece, Premier Venls
elos, has met with similar re
pudiation. The reward of loyal and
effective public service must lie, it
would apcar, in the approval of the
servant's own conscience.
f HORSE BLANKETS
o AT COST!"
We are overstocked on auto robes
and horse blankets and must have money,
and have decided to close out these two
items at cost.
They are all the famous 5A robes and
blankets and we have them in a large va
:' riety of colors and patterns.

The average cost of raising spring
wheat this year was S2.:ttS a bushel,
and of fall wheat $1.88 a bushel, ac
cording to figures furnished by Pro
fessor Mung of Iowa State College.
However, if farmers hereabouts had
sold at better than two dollars, we
fancy they would have admitted hav
ing done fairly well. If it costs so
much to raise wheat as Professor
Mung's figures would seem to indi
cate, Umatilla county land values
would not have been likely to have
advanced to unprecedented figures
for wheat growers would lose money
nearly every year.
During the two years ending No
vember 19 more than twenty millions
of dollars has been spent on 1444
miles of road in Oregon, an average
of around 114,000 a mile. Of this
improved highway, 686 miles were
graded, 395 miles rocked and grav
eled and 363 miles paved. Good
roads, it is quite apparent, cost good
money. All the more reason why
some effective plan should be adopted
to prevent confirmed speed demons I'11 authorities. Those who fear
