11 Advertise lO noiu iiiai"r
A year or so ago National
Biscuit company spent 160,000
in one year in advertising in
New York City, whore they
already had 98.'per cent of the
business. When asked the rea
son for expending this big um
in one place where they already
had the business they said it
was to noia meir twin
The object of advertising is
not only to get business bat
to hold business.
It is folly for merchant to
have the idea that because his
business is running smoothly
today it will continue so with
out proper effort back of the
business. The power thai
built up a business is Deeded
to keep it goi..g and more
business sagacity is needed
each year. Every year sees
new and changing conditions
and forces in business. The
merchant must be ever. watch
ful and gain every particle of
knowledge possible in regard
to his business.
Nothing is so important to
his business as advertising,
because it supplies the informa
tion the public wants. The
people are looking for every
particle of information about
goods that will add to their
comfort and happiness.
The merchant who is back
ward about telling of those
things that will give the in
dividual greater comfort will
find his business going to the
more successful merchant who
s not backward in giving the
I people the information they
crave. Advertising is con
stantly creating and satisfying
It is likewise folly for a
merchant to be peeved over
competition. A merchant
should get ahead and stay
II ahead of competition by carry
ing such a stuck of goods,
adopting such advertising
methods, etc., that will place
his store in the lead. Then
competition will not bother
him, trade will come to him
ahd old customers will stay by
Panama Exposition in San Fran
Cisco. Products of the soil is
what will bring the people we
ill sire to us and the Fair As
sociation should have the support
of every citizen in the county to
get a most creditable display.
Iike and Crook counties are
already busy with the rabbit
drives for the season and have
had successful meetings and are
organizing systemically, every
school neighborhood being the
rcadiiuarters for a club. At
Madras! the other day the new
tpapera report 12,000 rabbits
having been exterminated in one
drive. Harney county should al
so get into the game early as we
have our share, even though
rabbits are reported dying.
The illustration on the cover of
the Pacific Northwest, Phil
Bates' paper, is a picture of
Farmer Smith and the Harney
county exhibit of products sent
to President Farrell of the O-VV.
B. & N. We are getting much
publicity from the products sent
out and it will result in much
advertising of this country and
of a nature that counts. There
ahould be a greater interest in
the fair next year as it is then
we must gather such products as
we desire to exhibit at the
If your team will haul 2500
pounds in July when the roads
are at their best and only 1000
pounds when the roadsare muddy,
how much tax are you paying for
bad roads? You are paying 1500
pounds for each trip. Why is it
the freight rates advance in the
winter? If you live in Canyon
City and have freight hauled in
the summer it will cost 20 cents
a hundred but if you wait until
the roads get bad you may pay
as high as 50 cents a hundred.
This is a tax for bad roads.
Would it not be better to pay a
tax for good roads rather than
pay for bad roads. Bad roads
cost more than good roads. You
object to interest on bonds with
which to build good roads and
yet are content to pay a higher
rate of interest on bad roads.
The decreased load over bad
roads is the interest on the $25,
imm) which is spent annually to
maintain the bad road. You get
"double shot" with a bad road
because you have to pay more to
haul over it and pay more in
taxes to maintain it- Blue Mt.
investigating Water Rights.
L. D. Howland, representative
of Water Commissioner Cochran,
has returned to Ia Grande, hav
ing given the water users of this
section the alloted period to in
spect the claims filed for water
on SilvieH River. During the
time he was here the Water
Users Association had a com
mittee consisting of Sain Mothers
head. H. c. Lavsna, u. ft Sitz,
Dan Varien and .1. 0. Foley to go
over the claims and they arc to
make report at a meeting of the
Association today. It is given
out that some conflicting rigius
were foil ml among the wat r
users but none of a serious char
acter that would likely lead to
litigation among them.
The problem will be the claims
of the large holders of land along
the river and it is the opinion of
many fhat the smaller users will
have to stand together to secure
an equitable distribution of the
water for irrigation purposes.
At best this will bo a long drawn
out contest and the spirit of give
and take should prevail as pre
sent conditions are not satis

are definitely settled the sooner

Greatest Country Out Doors
Melvin E. Ballard and Charles
E Reeves have been looking
over this big Valley during the
past week in company with Frank
Johnson of the Oregon & West
ern Colonization Co., and as a
result it is quite likely several
townships of this fertile section
will be taken over by a colony of
people. These gentlemen repre
sent a large number of Morman
families and as they are familiar
with the Salt Lake Valley see
wonderful possibilities here.
Both are most favorably. impress
ed with the country and will
certainly make a favorable re
port. They have secured data re
specting the irrigation possibili
ties and Mr. Ballard is a very
practical soil man. He is entirely
satisfied with conditions and Mr.
Reeves, who is an attorney con
nected with the work of Mr. Bal
lard in securing locations for
families, says in his extensive
travels over the West he knows
of no other place where such a
magnificent body of undeveloped
land may be had at reasonable

After all there is compensation
(some times) in being lean and
hundry looking. The domestic
science class of the high school,
