WHY GO TO CHURCH?
REV. TRIMBLE MAKE APPEAL
FOR ALL CHURCHES.

The pastor of the Christian church
as been givea space in thia paper
for a few weeks in the interest of
church attendance. Already aauch
gaia has been made in all the
churches. We are confidently expect
ing to have our churches filled long
before Easter. Thia is a movement
for larger attendance at all the
churches. It is community wide and
as a member of the community you
should help. It is my plan to give
one reason each week for church attendance.
For the first one I want to aay:
You should go to chuch to help main
tain the church. We live in a day
when many unkind things are said
about the church. But after all it is
the best teacher of righteousness, and
the best builder of morals and upright
haracter that we hava ia this com
munity. The moral tone 01 our
school, our lodges, our press, out pic
ture show, in this community la food,
but it is only an echo of the teach-
ngs of the church. The foundations
upon which our country rest today
were put under it by tnt cnurca.
What would be the results if we
would remove the church and her in
uence from our community? Happi
ness would turn to cnaos. every per
son should attend church, and all who
can, should help maintain the church.

WOOL GROWERS GIVEN SERVICE
(Continued from First Pan)
0C0 pounds of wool to Portland on
this basis. One clip of 15,000 pounds
from the Yakima district gained
enough weight, du to the moist at
mosphere there, to equal 2.S cenU a
pound on th entire clip. The wool
was sold for 41 eenta a pound net
To have netted the grower the same
amount on interior weights, it would
have had to have been sold at 43.4
cents a pound.
System Recently Developed.
"All of the wool (hipped to the
Western Wool warehouse last season
sold from t to 10 centa a pound more
than ever was offered at interior
points. Many sheepmen regard this
method of marketing wool as the
only plan yet devised where wool can
be sold strictly on its merits at the
market price and atill remain In the
hands of the grower up to the time of
These arrangements. Sears said,
could not have been poasibla a few
years ago. The act of congress es
tablishing the Federal Intermediate
Credit banks less than two years ago
and the government warehouse act
shortly before provided the means
for orderly marketing. The same act
authorizing the intermediate credit
banks, authorized the organization of
livestock loan companies which could
obUin money for the) growers. The
federal intermediate credit bank is
not permitted to do business directly
with the growers, making it neces
sary for the latter to organise their
own companies for that purpose.
"The sheepmen have been the first
group of livestock men to take ad
vanUge of the new legislation," Sears
ponited out. "The Wool Growers Ser
vice corporation is practically owned
by the sheepmen.
Growth Held Certain.
"It is estimated that from 5,000,000
to 10,000,000 pounds of wool will go
to Portland this spring under our ar
rangements. It is further anticipat
ed that it only will be a matter of
years before Portland will be an out
standing wool market, with eastern
mills buying from its warehouses in
annually increasing volume."
A D. Dunn, sheepman and short
horn cattla breeder of Wapato, is
president of th corporation, and T.
J. Drumheller, Walla Walla aheep-
maa aad president of the Washing
ton Wool Growers' association, is
vice-president. There are four di
