Once upon a time I hired a man
to do a certain piece of work. He
was well along in middle life, and
I wondered why he had not made
more progress, since he seemed
honest and industrious.
I said to him: "It cannot be here
to watch this work and so I shall
have to trust you to do It as if you
were working for yourself."
He was profuse in his assurances.
He seemed to want the job.
, At the end of six months I visited
him. He had done fairly well, but
was rather glib with alibis. Other
people were always holding him up.
The weather was always very bad.
He would have done so-and-so if he
had been sure Just what I had want
ed, but I had failed to let him
I put this down as the grumbling
habit of ah old man.
"At least he is honest and means
well," I said.
But one. day after about a year,
I happened to appear unexpected
ly. He was not in evidence. Upon
inquiry I discovered that he was
using my time and some of my ma
terials on a little private job of his
own. We had a solemn conference
and decided to part.
When you put a man on his honor
and then have him take advantage
of your trust it is a blow to your
faith in human nature. So I was
depressed and a little sore.
But only for a few minutes. Then
I said to myself: "How foolish I
am to let this thing worry me. This
man has cheated me out of a few
hundred dollars, but what a petty
thing that is compared with the
way he has cheated himself! All his
life he has held a nickel so close
to his eyes that he couldn't see a
dollar. All his life he has lived on
alibis, watching the clock, stealing
a little here and there from his em
ployers, and imagining that he was
doing well for himself.
"And where is he at sixty? Poor
and jobless, and a failure. Reaping
what he has sown."
The old idea of Heaven and Hell
was very bad because it made us
think that our reward or punish

off place hereafter.

But the verse does not say that

PLANS FOR YEAR
MADE BY GRANGES
Cooperative Marketing Stressed In
Joint Conference at O.S.C.
The advancement of cooperative
marketing throughout Oregon was
decided upon as a major grange ac
tivity for the coming year during
a joint conference of prominent
grangers and members of the state
college extension service recently.
Plans outlined for furthering this
project call for meetings of each
subordinate grange agricultural
committee In the near future for
the purpose of considering local
conditions and forming definite rec
ommendations as to what should be
attemptetd or approved In the way
of marketing machinery. These
meetings will be followed by coun
ty and district conferences In an
attempt to put the program on a
Three deputy organizers were ap
pointed by C. C. Hulet of Albany,
master of the state grange, to su
pervise the district meetings. They
are Charles wlcklanaer of Board-
man for eastern Oregon, Arthur
Brown of Roseburg for southwest
ern Oregon, and S. H. Edwards of
Corvallis for the northwestern part
of the state.
The fact that considerable prog
ress in marketing had been made
this year by the granges In cooper
ation with county agents was men
tioned by Fred A. Goff, chairman of
the state agricultural committee ol
the grange, who pointed out partic
ularly the cooperative lamb pools in
Douglas county which returned the
farmers $1.70 per 100 pounds more
than they otherwise would have re
ceived. The lamb shipping activ
ities of the granges in Wallowa,
Union and Baker counties were also
mentioned as examples.
One hundred thirty-one of the
subordinate agricultural commitr
tees of the state grange, of which
there are 275 la Oregon, are carry
ing out some definite program of
agricultural improvement in their
communities, as compared with on
ly 86 last year, according to F. L.
Ballard, county agent leader.
Other grangers present at the
conference were Bertha J. Beck, Al
bany, secretary; Ray W. Gill, Port
land; Dr. C. H. Bailey, Roseburg;
Edward Shearer, Estacada, and
Walter M. Pierce, La Grande.
