SOAP CLUBS AND SO FOTTH.
How Suoh 8cheirM of Mail Ordar
Houm DerM Buainaat.
A close student of trade conditions
bun Just made tba surprising statement
that "last year at least $250,000,000
that should have gone to the retail
merchanta of the middle west wae
sent away from bom to tneee mall
Whether mall order trading la a
fashion, a habit or a fad la not under
discussion here, bat It la a fact and a
aerloua fact The writer already men
tioned goes on to say.
"This buying of catalogue house
and through soap eluha la a fad that
lias growa up In the commercial gar
den like a rank weed. People bare
been so busy about other things that
they simply have forgotten the obliga
tions thoy are under to their follow
nelgliliors and to themselves as a com
munity." The soap rlub, by the way, and
schemes of Its sort do a lot of damage
In ninny communities. A woman or
girl In one of the cheap monthly
mall order publications an alluring of
fur of a prtze In return for selling so
many boxes of soap or something else
for household use. Let us suppose It
Is soap. Everybody uses soap except
tramps. Hoap appeals to the house
wife, and when her neighbor and
friend comes around and requests her
to subscribe to a box of soap so that
the canvasser may win the prize of a
packngo of beautiful hatpins or a new
purlor rug almost any woman will take
the soap. It holps the neighbor along,
Hut these good women fall to think
of other uelglitHirs, Just as deserving,
who are not hulped by this little trans
action, but, on the other band, are hin
dered. There la the storekeeper In
town who sella soap. lie sells soap
Just aa good, no doubt, aa the mall or
der brand, and bis email profit on the
sale helps him to suoeeed In business
and to continue patronizing bis other
neighbors who are In business. Par
haps he boys many things for his own
household use from the hof bands of
the very women who send tba order
for tba mall order uap.
The competition of the tatakjae
bouse with tba local retail stores, tn
the opinion of those who study the
situation, Is doing nor than any other
thing to aap the commercial strength
of tba country towns.

The other day Rev. W. G. Smith, I present over 100 froitmeo. Profeasor
one of the well known Presbyteriao I P. J. O'Farra of Washington, D. O..
divine in Southern Oregon, viaited gave an iutereatiog talk opon the
Grants Pass, with view to getting I prevailing disease of the fruit tree,
more information regarding this lo-lhe most prominent featore of the
cality, as a fruit growing section and ! address being pear blight, a disease
CTToformed the Courier that he cob- j thai originates and gp esds over an
rlHuntly expected to come here to make 'orchard and to adjoining orchard",
bia fotnre home. He Is not ia charge but cannot be conveyed any great dis
of any cbnrch. bot is devoting bis tance, as the germ ia very short Hvfd
time and energies to the growing of
fruit ia the vicinity of Vedford.
But he says price of land are entirely
too high, over that way and that there
are otber conditions wbirh make
Grant Pass a more desirable place
in which to reside. Mr. Smith i
competing for one of the valnabl
prizts which have been offerel for
the beat articles, setting forth, in
succinct language the many raoui
why the Beaver State thould attract
tba newcomer. Elsewhere in todiy'a
Coorier will 'be found except from
ou of his interesting efforts.
Comparison of receipts from ship
menu to eastern markets in the last
I year have proved that Oregon pear
'growers are receiving from three to
i foor time a much per car for their
products a are the orange grower of
j southern California. It will surprise
I the world to learn that ordinary pear
and 'app'e orchards of Oregoa have

In the Lo Angela Time of Janu

"To way growa r ar taking an in
tereat in the importaal natter of

the industry in Josephine county,"
remarked one exteniiv orchardiat to
the news gatherer. He predicts that
ths outpnt of fruit from this imme
diate vicinity will be fully fenr times
what it baa been recently, in the
oeorse of two year' time. And he
baae hi calculations purely upon
fact that he see aad reoogaine as
meaning much for ths industry, lie
likewise does net heaitate to prediot
that in lbs course of a very few years,
fruit growing hereabout will have
oome to be of iuinieuse importance t
everybody concerned, lie nee in the
dim diatance grower shipping their
own product by the car load and in
thl he is also quite sanguine, owing
to the iuteraat snd application which
the grower are takiug with regard to
getting all the liiteat and li.'it idea

the county seat, Saturday, and in con
versation with the Courier man be
remsrked that as yet there baa been no
killing frost at his place, near Hugo
and as it ia now nearly the middle of
January, he thinks Jack Kroat will
have to watch oot cr he may forget
that favored spot entirely. Mr. Peter
son was formerly a railroad man, but
he never regret the day when he
decided to leave the iron horse and
delv in mother earth snd get an or

The apple market ia firmer today,
slightly higher price are quoted on
some grade than two weeks ago, and
there is very reason for the belief
that conditions will steadily improve
a the seaaoa advance. Receipts
from the conntryare xuuoh lighter than
in December, indicating that atocka
are largely oat of growers hands and
the available supply in tbe Front
atrtet market Is not aach as to give
dealsrs any apprehension. A feature
of lha trade, according to one jobber.
ia that lb demand for th cheaper
sorts of apple, which wa strong a
few week ago, bai fallen off
materially. At the same time tbe
stocks of inferior fruit bare been
much reduced. How the call i prin
cipally for tbe better grade and the
demand for these i improving. Re
cent reports from tb East abow ira-
irovrment in tbe apple markets gen
erally. 8 toe a a of low grade staff have
been largely worked off, snd tbe prog
pert ia for steadily atlffening mar
ket for th better grade from this
lime on. Ho large hipinenta are
being made here to'Eaatern markets

dealiri that few if any will be made,
