Every merchant is in busi
ness for profit -not gross pro
fit but net profit. Gross profit
is the difference between the
purchase price (or producing
cost) and the selling price,
while net profit is the differ-
ence between the purchase
price plus selling cost and .the
Every merchant knows that
if the selling price does not
exceed the'pnrchase price and
selling cost combined at the
end of the yearthere it no real
profit coming.to him out of the
business. To remedy this he
must do one of three tilings
reduce purchase price, increase
selling price or reduce selling
cost A merchant may reduce
the purchase price a little by
buying in quantities, or watch
ing the market and always
buying safe but the purchase
price is fixed by others and he
must pay their price. Of
course is the article is one the
merchant produces himself he
may reduce the cost of produc

crease selling price, although
the demand and competition
have a great deal to do with
fixing the selling price. But
the selling cost is in the hands
of each! merchant. It is by
manipulating selling cost that
each business becomes a ku
cess or a failure. Therefore it
I stands each merchant in hand
to reduce his selling cost.
Every merchant could han
dle more business than he now
handled with the same selling
force. By increasing the sales
with the same selling force the
Belling cost is reduced. The
blem for the merchant is to
educate people to want his
goods and buy them.
John D. Rockefeller said: "The
great cost in business is
waste. " To do away with this
waste or reduce it to the mini
mum is the purpose of adver
tising. Judicious advertising
will increase sales, thus reduc-

More or less criticism and dis
satisfaction have been voiced
throughout the Central Oregon
country relative to the expense
and methods of exploiting the
country for settlement and the
apparent lack of the desired re
sults. It has been rather difficult
to sit down after the crumbs and
the cigar ashes have been swept
up from beneath the banquet
boards of the past and figure out
whether or not that particular
community had been benefited
to an extent commensurate with
the expense and trouble incurred.
Often we have been lead to the
conclusion that all who participat
ed were playing at the same
game and from the same side f
the table Because the methods
employed have not brought the
success expected is no reason to
top short off on all advertising
and effort. It were better to re
form the system and tackle the
job from another angle, with
another style of instrument and

We are nearer to the time when
things are going to be doing.

It is up to each locality to see

People over in the western
part of the state naturally have
some local prejudices. The first
and greatest effort will be put
forth in the Willamette Valley.
There they will undoubtedly suc
ceed in placing the man who
wants a country home, the small
truck farmer, the fruit man and
the hop grower. But perhaps
they will meet with some dis
appointment when it comes to
placing the big eastern farmer
who desires to continue in the
grain and stock business. The
conditions are so different from
what he has been used to, and
the price of land a little high.
This class of immigration must

While the writer has no per
sonal information, we believe
that on account of his past con
nection with the management of
the County Fair the Editor of
the Times-Herald has refrained
from publishing anything relative
to the lack of interest manifest
ed by the Board of Directors in
prejmring for the Harney County
Fair this Fall.
This certainly is a most favor
able year to hold a good, old
fashioned agricultural fair. A
fine display of products can be
assembled and much useful in
formation furnished to all visi
tors. Such displays can always
be passed on and used for other
occasions. This really should tie
one step in the Agricultural Col

an excellent opportunity for the
farmers to compare notes and
