Protect the Sheep
County Agent E. R. Jackson
has announced that at 2 o'clock
on the afternoon of March 12 in
the Maupin hall there will be a
meeting to. discuss different
methods of coyote eradication.
The coyotes have been causing
big losses among the sheep this
winter and the losses are usually
more severe at lambing time.
This subject will be discussed at
the meeting and one or more
government men will be present
to take up methods of poisoning
and trapping. The U. S. Bio
logical Survey has developed
some very cIToctive poitums mid
Are you one of the millions who are patiently paying rtnls lhat are
from 20 per cent to 50 per cent too high?
If you are, do you know the facts?
Do you know that Maupin is short 10 homes; that experts estimate
the United States to be four years behind in building requirements?
The law of supply and demand always fixes prices. So long as
there is a home shortage landlords will demand high rents and tenants
will be forced to pay them.
The om way out is to become a home owner yourself.
You can build now cheaper than at any time in the past five
years, and almost as cheaply, we believe, as at any time in the next
Lumber and building materials have taken a tremcdous drop. The
complete cessation of building has caught manufacturers with big
stocks which they have been forced to sell almost at cost.
If you buy now you tan take advantage of their situation. If you
wait yon will buy when everyone else is buying, and you will find the
increasing demand forcing prices upward.
In our opinion, right now is a good time to build.
You owe it to yourself to investigate thoroughly. Call and see us,
or a letter or phone call will bring us to you at once.

Portland, Ore., 2-28-1921.
. A few days ago we sent to you
a sheet showing price reduction
on many of our tools of from 5
to 30 per cent. From some of
the factories manufacturing:
these goods we received the
same reduction that tfe have
passed along to vou. but from
others we have received no re
duction at all. This means that
for every one of those tools we
sell we are losing money..
Last fall when the farmers
were compelled to accent a price
reduction on produce thev had to
wll, they could not see the jus
tice of it but were forced to
accept the situation. Believing
they were right in their conten
tion, we are trying to relieve the
situation to them as much as it
is possible for us to help.
We have reduced the price of
moat of our goods to you. We
have the factories' promise that
if any further reductions occur
they will be passed along to us
and we, in turn, promise to oasB "
thenilongto yqu. Now if vou
also promise to pass it along to
the fanner, wficre can thev pos
sibly stand to lose hi buvinu- Ww
such tools as they need for this
spring's work? They are fairly"
protected and are assured that
the goods they buy will be
bought at the lowest price pre
vailing before Sept. 1, 1921.
We also believe that the deal
er should put in a conservative
stock' of spring samples on this
basis. If the farmer sees your
samnla fli.nt stunt.. .ml.tMnll..
thinks thafryou believe- rredins
tion is' about due and hoi ds off
buying in the anticipation that
he will buy cheaper a few daya
We believe also that next fall
ill find a great sliortaire of
manufactured farm tools. Many
factories are now idle or running
much reduced force. Thev
have but iittle slock on hand or
little material and it will take
months to get any surplus stock
We feel sure that if you will
carry a fair amount of samples,
talk to the farmer that he ii
thoroughly protected against
price reduction, an we have out
lined, that the situation now
existing will he greatly relieved.
We will help with our share,
will you do likewise?
Yours very truly,
R. M.JVade & Co.
