FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 10, 1015
Our esteemed contemporary, the Til
lamook Headlight, took the wind out of
our sails in its last boosting article, be
cause the Courier stated that this end
of the county hail not had its share of
road work in the past. All right, we
will qualify that remark by stating that
we have not had more than our share,
with a hope that our esteemed contem
porary will accept. However, as a m at
ter of news, let us state that Mr. Farmer
has not been the only commissioner
did the best they could with what they
had to do with.
It would not be out of place to recall
the facPthe.t on numerous occasions the
Courier has complimented Mr. Farmer
and other members of the County Court
on the valuable improvements made in
road work during their administration,
especially the permanent locating of
roads, such as the tide land cut off, the
change of road leading from the Condor
bridge to Hebo, ahd the change of road
at Hemlock also the road improvement
from Cloverdale to Hebo, which was
started and completed during Mr.
Farm er’s adm inistration.
A look at the Courier files will suf
fice to prove that it has boosted all
road improvements under every com
missioner that has held otlice, and what
is more, it intends to keep on boosting
until there will be no need for boosting
for good roads.
And further, we don’t want to be in
this boosting business alone. We want
everybody else to boost. Don’t knock,
boost. Join us and boost Tillamook
county into the limelight as the greatest
county in Oregon, for good roads,
honored citizenship, and home pros
THE VALUE OF FUR BEAKERS.
“ In calculating the value of the farm
and field, the value of the fur-bearer is
rarely ever mentioned or thought of.
This seems strange to me for the trap
per of today is the farmer or the farm
American raw furs in a recent article.
He claims that the money paid for the
collection of skunk pelts alone has
averaged not less than five million dol
lars a year for the last ten years; or in
other words the money paid for the col
lection of skunk pelts taken off of the
animals in the United States should be
figured as the interest on an investment
at the rate of five per cent per annum,
it would make the value of the skunk
on the farm and field of the United
States worth one hundred million dol
lars. In naming skunk I only call your
attention to one fur bearer in the list of
twenty five that add value to the farm
and field of the United Stutea. I will
admit that I have named one that is
without doubt the greatest money pro
ducer to the trapper, but wo must not
forget the fact that there are twenty-
four other varieties of fur bcarerB to bo
considered and the value of the pelts of
these enhance the value of the farm and
field of America many millions more.
