What Does A Farmer Earn?

ness men o f t h i s community
should welcome the chance to in­
vest in $25. shares in a home in­
dustry, one which has to date lib­
erated several thousand dollars
in local circulation and which will
distribute thousands o f dollars
A number o f local people have
already shown their pride in home
industry and their desire to build
up a permanent market, by in­
vesting such amounts as they can
afford, but the general response
has been below par, with the ten­
dency a m o n g p e o p l e having
means, to let the other fellow do
the work and furnish the money.
If between now and September
15th next, the people o f this com­
munity will subscribe $1,5C0. to­
wards the Kstacada cannery, the
News will guarantee the $500.
necessary to make up the requir­
ed $2,000. Slock to be issued in
payment for each $25. share.
R. C. Deming, the manager of
the cannery,, has not the time to
solicit stock and t h e business
should not have to pay a commis­
sion to a solicitor to raise this
money; so if you want to show
your faith in your home country,
advance the value o f your farm
land, g u a r a n t e e a permanent
market for your produce, advise
Mr. Deming or the News office of
your desire to help.
Everybody Is Learning The
One o f the busiest spots in
this county today, is Estacada’ s
business thorofare, Broadway,
where the laying o f the concrete
paving is well underway.

roll, is now laying about three

Aside from the helpers on the
payroll, nearly every male inhab­
itant o f the city is on the side­
lines, offering some advice but
generally absorbing more, from
the instructions o f Rev. Spiess,
who is acting as official inspector
for city and property owners. In
addition to Rev. Spiess, .a repre
sentative o f the Oswego Cement
Company is on the job, thereby
guaranteeing a proper mixture o f
the ingredients and help in lay­
ing out the concrete.
To add to the confusion, the
m em bersofthe city council, from
the mayor to the recorder, are in
the way half o f the time, but
everybody’s having a good time
and all are enthusiastic over the
tine pavement which will ulti­
mately result.
First set given away Wednesday. Sept. 6t.h
As Rev. Spiess is constantly
within ear-shot, a slight change
in the vocabulary o f some o f the
workers and bystanders has had
to be adopted, but occasionally
one o f the crowd says "P sh aw ”
or "G osh” notwithstanding.
The Estacada merchants are al­
ready laying plans for a big street
carnival and dance, to celebrate
the opening o f Broadway about
