But the Wise virgin sighed, "Alus!
I cannot afford to go upon a summer
vacation trip. Nay. I must remain
In at home, for I shall bo busy." And
he was busy.
For when all the other htiHbaiid
teekerg of the town had departed
the town, being bored and having
naught else to do. flocked unto her,

for the harvest was plentiful.
Moral Verily, verily, the summer
resort Is a PlnCH where a woman
will resort to anything from a eolicy
babe unto a grandfather for amuse
ment, but a womanless town is a ripe
field. Then waste not thy best
clothes upon the desert one of bath

before men and stay at home, for a
man within eusy range Is worth two
at long diHtance.
Nay, it Is not the woman who is
most attractive, that a man weddeth
but the one who Is nearest at hand.

"No nia'ter how well planned or
effective, advertising will not take
goods from the shelves and explain
their merits: will not sell a bill of
goods to the patron tio came for a
single article; will not bring a patron
back again who got cheated the first
time; will not put a customer In a
happy mood it the clerks are sullen
and unfriendly; will not make a favot

Is dirty and unattractive; will not
make a succesa of the store that
is overloaded with out of date goods
at high prices; will not make up for
any mistakes In buying, lnexpa-lence,
slack methods, poor location, or any
defects In the management
"The b'St that advertising can do
Is to bring new customers to the
store, but that Is the hardest part.

up to the merchant to show him uie

It Is expected that the hop crop In
this state alone will bring a return

the 30-cent mark In a few weeks and

higher market price. '
Hops have always been a great
crop in the Willamette Valley. Salem
has long b jen considered the hop

this city. .
The hop crop of the world Is uni
