Entered as second . class mail
matter September 2, 1914, at the
postoffice at Maupiu, Oregon, un
der the Act of March 3, 1879.
In these strenuous days of com
petition states, like cities and in
dividuals, must "sell" themselves
to the country at large if they
hope to keep in the front rank of
progress. California has for sev
eral years been spending millions
of dollars to advertise her climate
and resources; Florida cities and
towns spend millions annually,
and the state of Florida has
voted a big sum for advertising
in newspapers and magazines.
Now comes Massachusetts with
a bill in her legislature appropria
ting $200,000 to be used in ad
vertising the advantages she has
to offer the outside world. So it
is easy to see that if whole states
realize they must advertise to
enjoy prosperity there is mighty
little hope left for the individual
merchant who shuts himself up
like a clam, and who refuses to
tell the public through the news
papers why he wants more busi
ness. There is certainly food
for reflection in this, and we be
lieve Maupin merchants can pro
fit by giving it the attention it
TOO MUCH HELP
If anybody ever needed to be
saved from hi3 friends, the farm
er is that individual. He has al
together too many of them. Be
tween them they have presented
49 or 50 bills to congress, only
two of which have so far re
ceived any serious consideration.
One would create a division of
marketing in the Department of
MAUPIN, . . ORFiGON
Agriculture and the other would
create a federal farm' board to
assist in disposing of surplus
crops. The first haa a good
chance to pass, but the latter
has very little.
For the benefit of Maupin citi
zens who are really interested in
seeing the farmer prosper, and
who are his true friends, we
might say . that the division of
marketing would work out like
this: If the world price of
wheat were $1.00 a bushel and
the American price were $1.40,
a sales tax would put into the U.
S. treasury enough money to
cover the difference between the
domestic and the foreign price.
The bill would help the farmer,
providing he did not greatly ex
tend his wheat growing opera
cions, but the American public
would "get it in the neck."
And that's the trouble with
most of the plans offered to "re
lieve" the farmer. They either
hurt the producer or the consum
er, or both, because they inter
fere with the old law of supply
and demand which can't be tam
pered with without a come-back.
The commandment "Thou
shalt not kill" applies as much to
the man at the steering wheel
as it does to the man with the
pistol; and also to the driver
whether layman or preacher,
when coming down a steep hill
with his car out of gear. The
commandment applies to suicide
a3 well a3 to homicide.

amount of danger about us. We
