it doesn't work out. They are eay to

he would like to try a little of tha lo

heard so much. With very Httle dif

lightning" and retired to his room to
sample it. One taste was enough. It
was a particularly villainous decoc
tion. He did not care to throw it
away, so he presented it to an old
darky who had been driving him about
The next day he asked the old ne
gro how he liked the liquor.

been any better, you wouldn't V give

worse, I couldnt 'a' drunk it.' Ev

Early gardens are subject to se
vere injury by slimy, slow moving,
repulsive slugs. The plants may be
protected with a repeient spray of
bordeaux mixture. For the home
garden, probably the commercial
bordeaux mixture diluted as recom
mended on the container will give
good results. In addition prepare a
poison bait of caxium-arsenate us
ed at the rate of one ounce to one
pound of chopped lettuce leaves.
Mix these thoroughly and place
small heaps near the plants and
frames to be protected. Kale, clover.
or other succulent leaves may be
sub.titutd for the lettuce.

O. H. McPEKRRIN R. E. BURKE
HERE are times, such as the
last year or so in Heppner,
when money is scarce, and
everyone finds it hard to do
busines son a cash basis.-
When these times come there is always an
inclination to cut down expenses on every
hand. In following out this policy many
merchants make the mistake of consid
ering advertising a liability instead of an
asset, which it really is.
At such times especially do people want
to know where bargains may be obtained.
They wish to be kept informed on the
trend of market conditions generally. The
newspaper can do, and does do, its part
through the news columns. But this is
not sufficient to convince the public mind.
It is necessary that the merchant do his
part by consistent and thoughtful adver
tising, to affirm the newspaper's position,
and leave the public without doubt.
If a spirit of fairmindedness is shown
by buyer and seller and medium of infor
mation, much may be done to relieve the
tenseness of present conditions. The buy
er should keep well within his ability to
pay, in running credit accounts, and thus
help the merchant in meeting his bills.

then doth he gather the fruit of the
