DALLAS SAWMILL HAS
NARROW ESCAPE, FIRE
Dallas Fire, believed to have

carelessly along the tracks of the
Southern Pacific railway at the east
'end of the big lumber yard of the
Willamette Valley Lumber company
about 10:30 Sunday morning threat
ened for a time to sweep through the
yard and take everything in its pats.
Prompt work on the part of the mill
fire department and the Dallas fire
men kept the flames from spreading
but not however, until something like
75,000 feet of piled lumber valued at
nearly $3000 had been destroyed.
Two hours after the fire was dis
covered the flames were under con
trol, but the fire department was kept
on the job throughout the day for

Do you realize the importance of getting your adver
tising copy prepared early?
You know our old friend procrastination. He's a
cousin to the cow's tail.
Why follow, when you can lead?
Supposing all your customers left their shopping in
your store until an hour before you were closing up at
night, what would happen? You know. It would make
great confusion, you couldn't give service and your
customers would leave the store dissatisfied.
Well, in a way, that's what you ask the newspapers
to do. You wait until the ninth hour to prepare your
copy, and when it reaches the office you expect the com
positors to do two hours' work in one.
It can't be done.
The result is that your advertisement is slapped to
gether in great haste, with a chance for errors and with
out proper display. It can't be otherwise.
Stop that old habit of putting off till the last day, the
last hour and the last minute to send your copy to the
Get it out early when you have time to think and .pre
pare it properly. Then send it to the newspaper office
two or three days ahead. That will give the newspapei
time to prepare your advertisement properly.
You can see the logic of it. It will mean better ads,
better service and better results.
That's what you want. That's why you advertise.
Give the newspaper a chance.
Apply the Golden Rule.
