ON HOMK TRADING
John S. McMillan of Seattle, presi
dent of the Tacoma and Hoche Har
bor Lime company, has the following
boost for tr&dfng at home printed on
the back of his business card:
I remember thai upon one occas
ion a certain Farmers I'nion lectur
er was telling the farmers of 'i Vxas
of the mistake they were making,
lie nikl: "The great mistake with
the Texai farmer is that he doesn't
live al home; he depends on selling
cotton too much. You are continu
ally buying something, and you dun't
ever sell anything. To illustrate
what 1 mean, 1 need but call your
attention to the fact that when you
awake in the morning, it Is to the
alarm of a Connecticut clock. You
gel up and button on Chicago sus
pend 1:1 lo your Detroit overalls.
You go out and wash your face with
Cincinnati soap in an Indianapolis
Waghbailn, You sit down to your
breakfast and eal from a table made
In Orand Rapids, Michigan, and you
eal Chicago meal. And your bread
Is made of Tennessee flour, cooked
on a St. Louis stove. You go out
anil put a New York bridle on a
Kentucky mule, fed on Iowa corn,
ami plow your farm all day, which
is covered with a Massachusetts
mortgage. And at night when you
gel home, you read a Bible printed
in Boston, and JrQU say a prayer that
was written in Jerusalem. And you
crawl under a blanket manufactur
ed in New Jersey, to lie kepi awake
all night by a damned dog the
only home product you have on I he
FARM l,os ASU THU BANKS
The federal farm loan banks have
again been in operation for about
two months, and in some slales con
siderable money is being put out.
In I be Spokane farm loan bank
applications have been idled up for
over seven millions of loans, and a
few small siale farm loans are made.
To get federal farm loans farm
ers must take slock in I lie (arm loan
bank and the expense of making tile
investigation tails on the applicant.
These loans were originally made
on low rate bond Issues but the rale
of Interesl on government bonds has
gone lo practically sl per cent.
So the state and federal farm
loans are not going to give relief to
the farmers at any lower rate of
interesl than private farm loan
The pom petition between the two
systems will eventually benelll ihe
farmers as the inequitable difference
In iuieresl rates has been wiped out.
As imports of gold increase money
is becoming cheaper and good farm
loans will probably be tnade for
some time at lower rates of inleresl

RIDS FOR TRANSPORTATION OF
west. Lumber, which has made Ihe
biggest slump of all building ma
terials, is now sidling in Ihe North
west at prices representing approxi
mately a 50 per cent reduction over
1920 prices. Labor costs have like
wise been materially reduced.
Plumbing', plastering, brick and
concrete work, excavating, paints
and painting, healing and all olhe
major items entering into Ihe cost
of home building show a decided
drop ranging from 10 lo 50 per
cent, material men and builders say.

lower than it has been for some
BOUND FINANCIAL POLICIES
For several years there will be
large issues and large investments in
bonds and seeurilies on account of
high taxes making olher investments
more or less undesirable.
Hanking and sound business con
ditions generally demand thai bond
: sin s he al a fair rate of lateral lo
reduce speculation and selling bonds
at a large discount to a minimum.
Sound state policy should be along
the tine of inducing people in the
slale to become investors In home
securities, and western stales have
well managed public in iln ies . thai
issue fine securities.
Stale, county and muneipal bonds
should be sold as largely as pos
sible to the people in the district
where I hey are issued, and Ibis Is
being (lone in eounlles that issue
market road bonds.

even. European seeurilies are un
loaded on the people, including
Worthless oil stock and other specu
lative securities, when people would
do much better to buy home securi
ties from their home people.
TAXATION REFORM POSMBLX
Predatory politicians tell the peo
ple that taxation must go higher
and higher and that retrenchment
and reduction of taes is a dream.
The political machine that is
usually hi partisan in each stale
lights injection of business principles
in public affairs.
The machine wants more public
plunder, more otllees. nepotism, ex
IravagaCe and multii'licaiion of the
functions of government.
Governor Miller of New York won
a great ictory over Ihe machine
when he cut, appropri.il ions $86,
000.000 below the budget and abol
ished 3,000 stale jobs.
Two western state treasurers are
running iheir departments without
increased salaries and making iheir
otllees earn more than they cost the
people in Oregon and California.
Taxation reform is possible on one
basis make all otllees earn their
own support from those who get
the services rendered instead of tax
ing the general public.
THIRTY-SEVEN RED CROSS
M USES AT WORK IN I'lKlll.O
If Pueblo i Colo I rebuilt ever er
ects a Hull of Fame to commemorate
Its salvation from flood, (ire and :
pestilence, high on the roster of her!
benefactors will shine the names of
thirty-seven Red Cross nurses.
(n the sites of the improvise,!
relief stations and hospitals scatter- ,
ed through tbU Colorado city hronxe i
tablets ma) prehaps at some future
lime record the high-water marks of
humanitarian service and profession
al zeal, manifested by (he nurses who
ministered there in fire stations, li
braries, schools and similar emer
gency relief places. Among the
scenes of these ministrations were
Ihe McClellan Library, the McClei
Ean orphanage, the Central high
school, Bessemar and Fountain
schools, ihe Santa Fe depot, the
Mineral Palace and all fire stations.
Every one of the thirty-seven
nurses went as a volunteer, although
after their first week of arduous
service they were put on the Red
Cross pay roll. Miss Ethel G. Pin
dor, director of Red Cross nursing
service for the Southwestern divis
ion, who was in charge, describes
their spirit as "splendid."
