We have been asked by a Mau
pin man if in our opinion install
ment buying is a bad thing for
the country at large, and whiie
we can hardly feel we can be
considered an authority on the
subject, we still confess to hav
! given it some thought.
I We do not believe mail-order
installment buying is a pood
thing, because there is dissatis
I faction when the article arrives,
and this continues duririur the
'entire period over which the
I payments extend. Had the
! article been purchased ut heme,
any necessary adjustments could
have been quickly made. The
purchaser can always talk to the
seller in cases where articles
have been bought at home. While
all merchants would prefer, of
course, to do business on a cash
basis, practically all of them are
willing to extend reasonable
credit where it is needed and
warranted. In this way many
families secure comforts und
necessities they conld not enjoy
if they had to pay the entire cost
price in cash at the time of the
purchase. Paying a little each
week or month at the grocery or
furnitrnre store is nothing more'
nor less that buying on the in
Homes are built and furnished
on the installment plan; autos
are now sold on easy payments
in fact, a vast percent of this
nation, s retail business is done
on credit. And yet every year
there is a vast increase in indi
vidual saving deposits, Call it
credit, or easy payments, or in
stallments, or whatever you like.
It is good business to buy under
any method that does not en
danger the ability to pay: For
while credit is the most abused
thing in this couutry, it is still
the greastest asset that the
average family can have.
THE MORTGAGE LIFTFR
Some of these days pork may
supplant wheat and corn in the
kingship of agricultural pro
ducts. Residents of Maupin and
community who keep in touch
with the conntry's markets know
that the farmer who has hogs to
sell at 13c and 14c, a price they
have been selling at in recent
weeks, doesn't need to worry
over an agricultural depression.
In 1925 packers paid two billion
dollars to farmers for meat
animals, or fifty percent more
that they paid out in 1924. Sheep
and cattle prices were low, but
hog prices made up for that, and
the hog raiser made money even
when he had to fatten with high-
priced corn. So the hog products
hold their price under keen de
mand. We've always jokingly
referred to the hog as "the little
mortgage lifter," but it now ap
pears to be more of a reality
than a joke.
