COMMUNITY RIG HTEOSNESS
The Times has at all times agi
tated "buying at home." and al
ways will be found on the side of
the home merchant. The idea
of sending away for thing3 car
ried by our own home town
stores does not appeal to us as be
ing either economical or in jus
tice to our home town. Home
merchants carry lines needed by
the ordinary people, and if tb.3y .
at tirne3 charge a little more
than does the mail order houses,
they are entitled to their small
profit. Freight rates to Maupin

ing they "know nothing." At
the same time they have enough
news to send to outside papers,
which are published and credited
If Maupin people desire a pa
per which will publish all the
news of the community, it is up
to them to tell the. news man
what they have: if they fail to
do this they slone are to blame
for the dearth of items in the lo
cal paper. We want all the
news of the community. If
people withhold it from us they

send away for their necessities.
They are not good citizens, for
they are holding back that which
conduces to the best interests of
J the town and supporting outside
business places to the detriment
of their home town.
News that the government has
finally decided to investigate
gasoline prices will doubtless
cause every Maupin motorist to
wonder why it wasn't done long
ago. Ever since the auto came
into vogue the one thing about
its operation that no man has
been able to understand is why
there is such a wide discrepencj
in the price of "gas."
Every spring there i3 a boost
in price, and so prompt are the
various so called "independent"
companies to fall in line that ev
en Uncle Sam has come to be-
derstand, for instance, why Tex
as gasoline should be higher in
states close to Texas than in
states as far removed as New
York, or hoy the same company
can sell gasoline for one price in
one state and lor a higher price
in the state in which it is refined
Gov. Byrd of Virginia has peti
tioned the president to institute an
; investigation, declaring that the
jumping of gas prices in his

has cost Virginia motorists $6,

bought their gas from the sam
company in an adjoining state.
It is said in press despatches
that Pres. Coolidge has reason to
' believe that the auto drivers of
! this country are being gouged,
and when figures were recently

It has been figured out that if the sum of $1.00 had
been deposited in a savins bank at 0 per cent on
the dav of Christ's birth, the interest on it up to
t the present day would pay
debts of all of the nations in the worm.
And interest piles up just as fast today' as it has
at any time in the history of the civilized world.
Did You Know
that the only reason more people are not saving is
because they have not learned how fast interest on
