sight. In sharp yet pleasing contrast is the above picture of an apple orchard in full bloom. This picture was taken

SERIOUS REVELATIONS OF CENSUS
BUREAU ON DESERTION OF FARM
By J. Orin Oliphant.
Statistics are supposed to be dull
and uninteresting to any save those
who are a little bit "queer." Be that
as it may, figures can tell a fascinat
ing story to anybody who will give
thpm a little study. Recently there
has come to my desk a bulletin deal
ing with the population of Washing
ton, containing compilations of statis
tics from the 1920 census returns.
These statistics represent the most ac
curate information attainable on the
subject. And what do they teach?
The most significant lesson to be de
rived from a study of this census bul
letin is th;it the farms of eastern
Washington are being deserted, that
the number of persons engaged in the
basic industry of the commonwealth
is declining, while the urban popula
tion is increasing. In other words, the
number engaged in the production of
farm products in Washington is not
increasing as rapidly as the number
engaged in consuming them. Here is
an economic problem of tremendous
Since 1910 the population of Wash
ington has increased 214,631. The in
crease in the urban population during
the 10-year period was 143,205, while
the increase of rural population was
71,426; that is to say, the increase in
the cities during the period was twice
as great as the increase in the coun
try. That fact in itself might not be
alarming were it not for the evidence
tending to show that much of the in
crease in the urban population has
been due to a drifting away from the
country. People have been abandon
ing their farms to go and live in the
towns and cities.
FAMOUS FRENCH MARSHALL TO
VISIT SPOKANE NEXT WEEK
The Marshal of France will be Spokane's guest from 10:30 a. m. to 10:00
p. m. Tuesday, November 29th. He will arrive over the Milwaukee railroad,
journeying from St. Maries, Idaho, via the St. Joe river and Lake Coeur d'Alene
by way of Amwaco, Idaho.
The itinerary of the western journey was arranged by Alton B. Roberts,
chairman of the American Legion national committee for the reception of dis
tinguished guests. Telegraphic information just reached Spokane Saturday
definitely outlining the program.
In Spokane the streets will be decorated for the event. A military escort
will conduct the marshal from the depot to the Davenport hotel upon arrival.
There will be a private luncheon at noon. In the afternoon there will be a
parade, the line of march being from the Davenport hotel to Riverside, thence
east on Riverside to Browne, thence to the Armory. At the Armory Marshal
Poch will deliver an address.
The arrangements are in the hands of a Joint committee from the Ameri
can Legion and the citizenry of Spokane. The evening entertainment will be !
a diner at the Davenport hotel. To this will be admitted as many people as it
is possible to seat in the Marie Antoinette room. This will close the day's '
entertainment, which the committee feel should be as different and as attrac
tive as it is possible to make the visit of a man of the caliber of Marshal Foch,
who is undoubtedly one of the greatest living men of the day.
From outside towns the mayor or some representative will be invited, to
gether with the members of American Legion posts.

Fourteen counties, more than one
third of the number in the state, show
a decrease in population during the
last 10 years; and it is interesting to
note that they are the strictly agricul
tural counties of the state. Ten of
these are located east of the Cascade
mountains. Those showing a decrease
are as follows:
Adams, Columbia, Cowlitz, Garfleld,
Grant, Jefferson, Kittitas, Klickitat,
Lincoln, Mason, Skamania, Stevens,
Walla Walla and Whitman.
Two probable explanations of this
undesirable shifting of population may
be given: Farm work is not as profit
able as formerly, and country people
feel the need of the social and edu
cational advantages which the city of
If these explanations be adequate,
the following program for remedying
conditions suggests itself: Farming
must be made more profitable, and
rural conditions must be bettered.
Farming can be made more attractive
if better markets for farm products
are assured and if proper instruction
is given In farm economy. Some farm
ers go broke because they don't know
what to raise; others because they
don't know how to raise the right
thing profitably. Farmers, like other
business men, must realize that it is
better to raise small crops and make
a fair profit on them than to raise
large crops and just break even.

TESTS OIL SEEP
Place Guard Over Well Twenty
four Hours During
The oil seepage at 1029 S. E. boule
vard which has been considered a won
derful phenomenon by oil men gener
ally, has now become the subject of
investigation by the Better Business
bureau of Spokane. The oil spring
came to the attention of residents of
Spokane several months ago when,
after a slight earthquake shock, the
spring gave forth several gallons of
very high grade crude oil daily.
When drilling was started the flow
diminished in the spring but the oil
now appears to come from the well a
few I'pet distant.
To test the matter the spring was
drained and the well was bailed empty
November 17th, at 2:00 p. m. Both
were sealed and guards hired by the
Business Bureau were placed in
charge for twenty-four hours. At 3:00
p, m. November 17th, twenty-five hours
Inter, the seepage upon examination
still gave forth some of the same oil
combined with the water dipped up.
The bailer was run in the well and
every discharge gave signs of oil. In
afct, the smell of petroleum was so
strong that spectators standing 30
feet away could sense it plainly.
No report of findings has yet been
made. Permission to dig up the

Thousands upon thousands of dollars have

now demands your attention and financial sup*
port of a Home Company.
The OIL SPRING on Southeast boulevard,
Spokane, has been giving forth its GOLDEN
FLUID, a high grade oil, the richness of which
is almost beyond understanding, for more than
six months. Oil derricks are being erected,
drilling is now being done at both ends of the
BIG holdings of the Home Oil Company.
The above cut is an exact reproduction of
the new oil derrick on the eleven-acre tract of
the Home Oil & Gas company. This is a stand*
ard derrick, eighty-four feet high, butl to be
used in connection witli a standard drilling out
fit. The company expects to start drilling ont
this eleven-acre tract at an early date.
This oil company is truly what the name im
plies, a home company made up of home people,
with the purpose and object of developing oil
properties at home.
Besides this eleven-acre tract the Home Oil
and Gas company has 323 acres on the Moran
prairie structure under lease.
In the Home Oil and Gas company every
shareholder has an equal interest in all the as
sets of the company in proportion to the num
ber of shares held by each. The capitalization
of $150,000 is moderate yet ample. Thtre is
no promotion stock, and furthermore the stock
owned by the officers has been put in a pool
