CITY CETS BEST SERVICE
Hydro-electrics, as operated un
der government plan in Ontario,
have proved these fundamental
things: Farmers were not benefited.
Rural or merely suburban dwellers
were more numerous than farm us
ers. Service is available to only ten
per cent of the farming districts in
the entire province;' less than three
per cent use it
It was started as a ' "convenience
rather than as an income-producing
Argument was that lights on farm
homes would keep young people on
Government aid has not made it
possible to supply any considerable
. number of Ontario farms.
It has been impossible to serve
poor farmers, or even a majority of
farms where service is available.
Average use per farm in a district
established twelve years was only
102 kilowatts per month.
In newer districts established four
years, only 56 kilowatt hours per
month. ' . . -
The net service charge previous to
1925 varied from $5.07 to $15.74
per month for medium farm service.
These figures show that there is
little to be gained from the enor
mous investment proposed to be
made with the proceeds of the huge
indebtedness a few zealots are trying
to saddle upon the State of Oregon.
A SERIOUS PROBLEM
There probably never will be a
time when it will be a problem
what to do with our corn crop,
wheat crop or our beef cattle, for
: there will never be a time when
, people can quit eating, and these
things form the foundation of every
meal. We have reached the point
, where the cotton grower can do a
little worrying, for it looks as tho
the race, insofar as the fair sex is
concerned, is going to be able to get
.along with very few clothes.
: Already cotton stolkings are becom
' ing scarce, and more and more worn
!en and girls are going in for dresses
and underwear made of other ma
terial than cotton. We are not in
timating we have made anything
more than a casual, long-distance
inspection of the apparel worn by
the fair sex of Maupin. Please
don't get us wrong there. But we
do see enough, and so do several
body else, to lead us to the belief
'that if stylos change as fast in the
next five years as they have in the
past five, and the demand for silk
land near-silk continuous as great,
the cotton planter is going to face a
jbig problem. And "yet, who knows
but out of it all he will be forced
to grow some other crop that will
bring him more money?

It has been figured out that if the sum of $1.00 had
been deposited in a wiving bank at G per cent on
the day of Christ's birth, the intercut on it up to
the present day would pay off all of the national
debts of all of the nations in the world.
And interest piles up just as fast today as it has
at any time in the history of the civilized world.
