There has been but one esse of

was In the lightest form. The vie-1
tim of the quarantine Is up and
about his work and is suffering no
111 after effects from the ailment.
Doctors at The Dulles diagnosed his
ailment as scarlet fever and ordered
him to stay in the house. They also
recommended immunizing all pu
pils of our schools and advised that
usual precautions be taken to Iso
late the disease. Dr. Elwood main
tained that no scarlet fever existed,
here. His diagnosis of the one case
was that it was tonsilitis. Quite a
few school children were attacked,
with sore throat, and a few
others were kept at home. At this
writing there are but a few cases of
tonsilitis in this vicinity. The same
ailment was prevalent in other sec
tions of this part of the county; in
fact there have been more cases of
tonsilitis In the upper sections than
in Maupin. t ..

isolation of possible scarlet fever

proper thing to have done. He

Regarding the procuring of cul
tures of that disease, physicians
seem to be at sea. It is stated that
that germ has so far not been dis
covered, consequently no means
have been devised to immunize
against it. While it has been shown
thut a serum treatment is sometimes
efficacious, it is not infallible. In
diphtheretic cases the scrum treat

pox. Doctors Elwood and Stoval has
been busy giving serum treatments
to children, so far 114 scholars sub
mitting and seven others having
theis epidermis punctured and
serum injected into their anatomies.
This should have the effect of

Governor Lowden Urges
Farmers to Organize
By CompUlo Organisation Farmers
Could Do As Industry Is Now
Doing la U. S.
"Agriculture cannot survive un
less we devise a better system of
marketingunless we follow our
own products to the consumer, or
nearly there, with tome control over
the price," Frank O. Lowden, form
er governor of Illinois, nationally
known as a student of agricultural
problems, and himself a fanner and
breeder of pure bred livestock, told
a large group of sheep men at a ban
quet held in Portland, Oregon, on
November 2nd, in connection with
the Pacific International Livestock
1 "It farmers were completely or
ganized they could do exactly what
industry is doing, and make up their
minds what they were going to re
ceive for their products, somewhere
in reason, and could ask that price.
If there was a difference of opinion
between them and the consumers
they would meet and thresh it out
around a table, but the farmers
would have as much voice as anyone
The fact that cooperative market-;
ing associations raise the general
price level in the territory where
they operate, and that the non-member
secures some of the benefits
without sharing the expense . of
maintaining the associaton, was
pointed out by M. Lowden as one of
the conditions that render complete
organization difficult. "We have to
find power somewhere to confer up
on cooperatives to enable them to
make the non-members share the
cost." To illustrate the influence
of a cooperative marketing associa
tion in keeping prices up, and the
ruinous slump that often follows the
discontinuance of such an organiza
tion, Mr. Lowden told the story of
the Dark Tobbacco Growers of the
south who are now reorganizing af
ter a year of "outside selling" that
has left the growers in that territory
practically facing ruin.
"Agriculture is out of step with
the other forces," declared Mr. Low
den, who quoted figures from the
government reports to the effect
that farmers in the United States
last year earned 3.5 per cent on
their net capital investment and re
ceived as their year's wages an av
erage of $648.00, not taking into

Why Not Try For
New Normal School
Ideal Locotioa, Salubrious Climate

Din Desirable Location
While other eastern Oregon cities
are making bids for location of
either the new normal school or the
tuberculosis hospital, our people are
overlooking a bet by not making an
effort to have one or the other of
the new institutions located here.
This particular part of the state
of Oregon is blessed with a climate
sought after by schools and sana
tarlums; the sun shines nearly every
day in the year; it has no severe
cold weather, and the location is
ideal, being on a bench overlooking
the Deschutes river. Two railroads
bring Maupin close to the outside

there is at least a little money

The corporations of today are
"our" corporations, we everybody
finance their building and buy

in its ideal form. Railroads, big
buildings, public utilities, factories,
improvement districts, schools,

America was never as truly

Reports have reached us that
shortly after the release of some
300 mongolian pheasants parties
were out "gunning" for them.
This was done after the open, season,
which makes the offence doubly of
fensive. The recently planted birds were
pen-raised and nearly tame. They
fell easy victims to the vandals who
killed them, as they had not had the
fear of man instilled in them.
Those "sportsmen" who hunted
them must have no respect for law,
and just what "kick" they . got out
of killing the birds is beyond us.
They would have gotten the same re
sult by going into a farmer's yard
and shooting his chickens. By do
ing that little thing they would not
have been transgressing the game
laws, although) would have been
amenable for so doing.
No doubt there will be an open
season on these birds, when killing
them will be legal: In the light of
true sportsmanship we suggest that
they be protected to the end that
they may insrease and provide better

The production of the potato,
which for more than 200 years has
been one of the staple field and
garden crops of the United States,
a. has kept pace with the growth in
population on the basis of about 3
bushels per capita. In recent years
there has been an increase in the
per-acre yield of potatoes. Reports
for October indicate an acre yield
of 109.6 bushels for 1926. The av
erage for the 5-year period 1921-25
was 106.9 bushels. Increased yields
are attributed to seed selection and
proved cultivation, and crop rota
