TELEPHONES 50C A MONTH
Miners txnd Farmers Can Have
Cheap First-Class Service.
It la more than likely that by a
year hence all the mining diatriota
and farming auctions of Josephine
county will be connected by telephone
lines with the long distance linea aud
the Grunts Paaa exebango. The
I'uoiflo States Telephone & Telegraph
Company, which now has all the
towua lu this county conueoted by
telephone and a local exchange in
eucli town, is now undertaking tn ox-
tend their tliohonn scrtico to cover
all the rural districts of this county.
As will bo aeon by the subjoined
statement by O. O. Oium, manager
tor this district, tliu company is
offering a low rate to the farmers and
miners who wish to put in tele
phonos. These roral telephone lines
are not expensive to bnild for the
polea would coat the farmers nothing
and the labor of outting and sotting
the poles could be il 011(1 during the
winter months when there is no rush
of farm work. Wire nnd Insulators
would oost about flff per milo. The
phones aro anppliied by the company,
but the expense of Installing them
anil of stringing the wiro has to be
homo by tho subscribers. This work
doea not require an electrician for it
ia so simple that any bright person
can learn tho busluesa with a 11 He
study, and 8upt. Olum will teach
persons how to do tliu work. Those
rural tolpelinue lines would be of
very great ndvantago to farmers and

It is quite cerlaiu that tlie mute will

states In the matter of civ ic pride und
determination to better existing condi
tions. "1 am naturally a firm believer," con
tinued the speaker lu discussing the
subject, "In the policy of local effort
and ils effect upon community growth.
The present day is 1111 era of competi
tion, anil In proportion to the enter
prise of a community In advertising
Its resources and opportunities broad
cast throughout the entire country will
said community receive Its returns lit
the hands of the people and capital
now seeking location ami Investment.
"Louisiana today is not the unknown
quantity the state represented ten
years ago. The New Orleans Progress
ive union, oue of the finest advertising
Institutions In the entire country, has
placed the state generally lu the public
eye and has attracted u vust deal of at
tention In this direction.
"The orguulziitlon of tho smaller
towns will necessarily support the ac
tion of the New (Irler.n.s organization,
and us a re lilt of the Joint elTort 1 look
to sc.; a wonderful Improvement and
advancement lu production und In reul
ty values lu the next few years. Tho
opportunities for safe Investment lu
Louisiana are very numerous, aud the
very cheap agricultural areas open for
settlement and thu general productive
ness of the soil, taken In connection
Willi their nearness to the great mar
kets of the country, create 11 situation
from which great aud lusting prosper
ity will result."

Homo nnd Its protection is the basis
of all government. That citizen who
h.;s tlie love of home and fealty to
home Interests is u worthy representa
tive of any commonwealth. It la the
mass of such men that are the back
bone of iiuy coininuiiity and llr.uraLlve
ly the mainstay and the rock upon
which nations are founded, says the
Home Trade Advocate. Whoever lives
hi u community and falls to support
the public Insulations and does not as
slst in the building up of Imlu-li !.-;
that add to the greatness of that com
munity Is like all alien. While be live,,
hi one place Ids heart Is hi another.
Ke Is not the Ideal citizen, for he Is not
lu harmony vvilh those who are his
neighbors. It Is the duty of every resi
dent of a town or coiiiinuuli y t da
utmost to advance Its Interests. :,
thu.i doing he not ukme assists hiui
self, but his neighbors, bis town, his
county, ills state and his nation.
Improve the Hontls.
Many towns have one drawback, to
their prosperity, and this Is the lack of
g.wd roads, whereby they may bo
reached by the business and profes
sional men from the cities who every
year during the si uer season a;"
prone tu eek the umiiiitiiiiis f .r health
and pleasure. As u mutter of h;i.-.:ii, -s
such towns should take ste) s to iri;.,;e
their roads so that they may be eislly
traveled by automobiles, coael.es ami
every other means of transportation.
