With the business men of Esta­
cada on the alert to draw more
trade into town and to better
serve the customers now buying
and selling here, a matter of
possibly slight importance has
been overlooked in the welcom­
ing of the farmer’s faithful com­
panion, his dog.
How often lately, when the
farmer is receiving every con­
sideration and form of welcome
at the hands of the merchant, his
dog, which usually is not only his
companion, but is a valuable train­
ed animal, is receiving exactly
the opposite treatment from one
or more of the town’s worthless
curs; the farmer often returning
to his wagon to find his dog still
on the joh, but suffering from a
badly chewed leg, neck or head.
If Estacada cannot control its
useless dogs, it is hoped that some
farmer will hit town with a real
genuine canine white-hope, which
will make a meal of about half of
the local pups, and return the
next day and devour the other
Its the old case Love me. Love
my Dog and true hospitality to a
farmer, does not include the lick­
ing of his companion.
In an editorial appearing in the
Oregon City Enterprise last week
entitled “ A Man’s Worth” a fit­
ting tribute to County Judge H.
S. Anderson was given and the
taxpayers were commended for
having recommended the increase
of $800. per year in the judge’s
In this connection, the News
also wants to go on record as
heartily favoring this recommen­
dation, realizing, as it is in a
position to do, that the services
rendered by Judge Anderson in
the conduct of this county, if di­
rected along personal or other
business lines, would warrant a
salary or income of several thou­
sand dollars more per year.
This same consideration and in
crease in salaries should be ex­
tended to the members of the
county court and to probably
many other county officials.
Even if Estacada never gets a
cheese-factory, the work that has
been done, the co-operation and
united efforts that have been
made, cannot help but bring re­
turns in other ways, for any com­
munity that will stick together,
and invite every man into the
work; will win in the long run.
P o p u la r C a rr ie r R esigns
It was reported Wednesday that
A. Demoy, who for years has
handled the rural mail delivery on
Route 1 Estacada, resigned his
position, the resignation to be
effective when designated by the
postal department.
No reasons have been assigned
for the resignation and it is prob­
able that Mr. Demoy wishes to
devote his entire attention to his
Estacada ranch, wheie his many
friends wish him the success
which is his due.
