There was a time when “ spelling bees” were a popular form of amuse ment among the older folks and such an affair would ptove an in structive, interesting and mighty amusing entertainment now. The County Court are now going after the automobile ttneks, with the intention of limiting their loads, as carried over the county’ s high ways. This is a wise move, for an auto truck, with the suction caused bv its corrugated rubber tires, at high speed, can do more harm to a good road than a dozen farm wagons with brakes set. As regards pay tug taxes for the upkeep of roads, it is doubtful if any of the auto truck owners doiug business thru- out the county, contribute much of anything. Incidentally this move probablv will not make the P. R. L. & P. Co. overly angry, for the auto truck is hurting their business to some extent and as the railway company are the county’s biggest tax payee, it deserves some protec tion. _______ A New Years Resolution:- Re solved that during 1915 I will try to patronize mv home merchants more, that I will work for and in unison with my neighbors and that I will sheath my hammer and stop “ knocking” . The recent formation of the Cattlemen’ s Union in Garfield, is in in keeping with the tendency of the times and indicates conclusively that there is a strongly felt netd for cooperation among the farmers of this community. The only wav to make a good profit on that which vou have to sell, is to raise first class produce and cooperate in both the growing and marketing. Clackamas County will spend $232,000 for roads in 1913. The spending of this money lies in the hands of the thrte members of the County Court. These men do not claim to be expert road builders and consequently believe that the salary now paid to the County Road Engineer, Mr. Hobson, is necessary. They are right and the tax pavers should uphold them No private individuals or corporations would think of spending over a quarter million dollars, without co»nj>etent advice and no more should a county.
