We know they are the hest money huys and the
cheapest in the long run.
Last week we planted potatoes for our main c rop and to
some people it must look like rather expensive seed, for we
could get 12 cents per pound for those seed potatoes.
Likewise our new potatoes are coming on nicely and at the
.price offered for those it seems foolish not to put them on the
market, hut wait until the price drops. One of the greatest
drawbacks of our country ami especially the farming OBd of it,
la that very few think and prepare for tomorrow; one pound of
growing potatoes in the ground now will increase to 5 pounds
in a month, and 1 pound good seed planted now under intelli
gent culture will increase IS fold before harvest.
It has always been our aim to market our stuff when it is
matured, and while it has not been very profitable in some
instances from a financial standpoint, any enterprise must adopt
a system and stand by it, if it wants to succeed.

Commodore Dean did valiant service,
having volunteered to direct motorists
how to get through the city and Frank
ton and Belmont districts over the de
tour. Members of the Shrine Club, will be
unable to spend more tlian a day in
Portland for the most part. They are
remaining on the job in Hood River to
see that visitors do not lack or com
forts. Most local families will visit
Portland during the week.
The Rose Festival, for which Port
land has made a worldwide name, is
also this week. The parades and fes

on J. IL Frtdriry last week and tried
to persuade him to go to Portland and
lead his red, white and blue lizard in

he is head of the local F.Ik's (Tub
