Haaímt (üarlumtaH iCnits Devoted to the Interests ot Eastern Clackamas County ESTACADA, OREGON, THURSDAY, JULY 21, 1027 VOL. XXI ABOUT YOUR I t B3X AN IDEA. IF CARRIED OUT. WILL HELP M IL CARRIERS Mr. Johnson, the postmaster, along with the Postal Department, »are sponsoring the idea of better mail boxes and mail box stands. They are out taking pictures of the boxes before they were put into good condition and after and there is quite a contrast. Perhaps you have no ticed, when you were out taking that “Sunday Spin’’ the unsightlyness of some of the mail boxes, and how well others looked. Also the differ ence it made in the corner or road side where they were all found up in good shape. The government spends a great deal of money during the year to get the mail distributed properly and the owners of those delapidated boxes should see to it that his box is stand ing up straight and at the right height. Where there is a number of boxes all together the owners should get together and put them on a plank with a post at each end so that they will all be the same height and easy to get to by the Rural Mail car rier. This would be inexpensive and would Improve the looks of many corners and roaside. It will not only help your carrier but show the peo ple that pass by your mail box that you not Only appreciate the fact that the government spends this large sum of money each year for your bene fit but that you are willing to do your part in helping them to keep it up and improve it in any way that it is possible. Mr. Johnson is more than willing to give you any sugges tions and advice in this matter at any time and is anxious to see every box standing on a firm foundation and upright and not leaning away over to one side and about ready to fall over and hard to get to. We fee) sure that if you put your box up in the proper shape that you will fee proud every time you go to get your mail, that your box is not ready to fall over. There is a number of tourist tha‘ pass these boxes every year and let us have them say “that they saw thf best upkept mail boxes when the; passed through the state of Oregor and especially the Er stern part ot Clackamas County." Mr. Johnson wishes to state for your own infevmation that the box should bo four feet in height and leaning just a trifle to the road so that the carrier can drive up and see into the box quickly and easily He also expects to send in his re port in the next three weeks and ir endeavoring to have the best repori for the state of Orogon. The roads on the the routes are said to be ir exceptionally good condBion due tc the fact that the road trustees are putting forth their best efforts to bring this ahout.

NUMBER 42 LOVE Fame may come in a dozen ways, Wealth is found in a score of trades, Every art to its genius pays. Skill has various ranks and grades, But soon or late we all come to know, Love is the same for the high and low. Man finds love in a woman’s eyes; Something tender and sweet and true, Be he foolish or be he wise, Sends him out ih the world to Woo. A certain woman must whisper “yess” If love ie to crown him with hap piness. And Whether the maid be d a r k or fair, Pretty of face or plain to See, If love abide with the m ated pair, None in the world Can happier be; For rich or poor it is all the same, Love c an exist without w ealth or fame. Honor and love have no degrees, Richer than others a man may be; Fame has limits and boundaries, There are rank and caste on land and sea, But who is welcomed by love at night Has all that maketh a king’s heart light. — Just Plain Folks by E.

Nothing has done more to put tele phones in practically every American home, than advertising. Government owned telephone sys tems in Europe see no need for ad vertising. The taxpayer has to covei deficits, and there is no incentive for officials to maintain a growing tele phone business and pay dividends to hundreds of thousands of stockhold ers. To show why the American system grows, it is only necessary to read some of the advertising of local tele phone companies. A good illustra tion is advertising appearing in Mary land newspapers during a recent month. * V One advertisement appealed to the young person at school to ring up the folks at home and keep up the person al contact. Another, pointed out the cheer that is brought to parents when their young people who have gone out in different walks of life, make a little “phone visit” instead of mere ly trusting to an occasional letter. Y’et another, suggested that a young person away from home, when con fronted by problems, gets comfort and help by ringing up the home for advice. All the advertising had the human touch and appealed to every member of every family. The American tele phone system grows an« gives the best and cheapest service in the world, largely as the result of con tinuous and intelligent advertising.
