To the Ladies!
We lake great pleasure lit announcing
that we arc now prepared to make Ladles
Suits and Coats, as well as Mens.
We have secured the services of a tailor
who has had years of experience in the art
and study of flue tailoring.
When you order a suit from us you
know that you are going to get the goods,
style and workmanship. When you order
a suit thru a mail-order house, you don't
know just what you arc going to get; you
don't sec the goods and the work is done
by machinery and when the suit is received
in most cases alterations are necessary be
fore you can wear it.
You save time and money and we guar
antee you satisfaction when you order thru

Judge Will R. King and Hon.
Joe Teal are both spoken of as
possibilities for Secretary of the
Interior in the Wilson cabinet.
Either would be a credit and an
honor to the west.
It has been a case of "catch
as catch can" in the daily papers
recently as to whether Wilson or
Roosevelt had carried California.
It is such a beautiful mix that
we have forgotten which had it
last One day one is reported
ahead and the next the other
fellow has it.
The work of President Kerr of
the Agricultural College in se
curing federal aid in the advance
ment of agriculture in this state
should receive just recognition
from the people and the legisla
ture will no doubt take advan
tage of the opportunity and act
to take its place high up in the
list where it properly belongs.
This matter is of such impor
tance that it should bo given
special study and investigation.
Cnnners Getting Scarce
Improvement in the quality of
the cattle produced in this coun
try, and particularly in the west,
has been going on slowly but
surely for years. An evidence
of this is seen in the great scar
city of canning stock nil season.
For many years a good share of
the cattle coming from the west
and southwest were sold to the
packers as canners but packers
have been unable to get what
canning cattle they needed dur
ing the past summer altho they
have been paying the highest
price ever known for this class

15. Agronomy VII (Soil Fer-
Getting people on to the land,
actual settlers and actual produc
ers, is the greatest problem that
Oregon has before it today. The
land is here and it is of a quality
that commends itself. But we
find that while the cities and
towns are growing in population,
the growth of the country by no
means keeps pace with them.
We have heretofore called at
tention to these facts. We do
not believe there is a more impor
tant question before the public
and one which is apparently so
little understood. There arc
very definite emigration move
ments in other directions. Cana
da has been getting a yery fine
body of American settler, preci
sely the class that would be de
Birable here, the South is get
ting some of them, and others
are actually going to New York
State under the inducements
It is apparent that the question
before us is something more than
superficial. If it were something
on the surface it would be very
easy of solution. Just precisely
Vhatitisand how to meet it is
the question before the public
and it should receive serious con
sideration. So long as such land
as is bought is often bought sole
ly for speculative purposes and
not by men who propose to farm
it, we are not getting very far
ahead. What is needed is that
,'theland be bought by people who
will live upon it and utilize it for
productive purposes. In this
-way the backbone of tho stale
will bo strengthened and Oregon,
in a productive sense, will begin

A voluminous protest coming
from Prairie City, John Dny and
Canyon City, is being sent into
the government, regarding tho
antiquated mnil service given the
county. The government, throu
gh the Forest service, appropri
ated about 55 per cent of the to
tal area in acres of tho county nnd
collects a toll for its use, which
ttie people pay without complaint.
In return the ieoplo get n sack
of garden seed bi-annually and n
mnil service Hint would be a dis
grace to the land of Hottentots.
The people are in fnvor of the
government supervision of 55 per
cent of its area and so was ex
pressed by tho stockgrowers'
association last week, but they
want some consideration. They
pay in thousands of dollars and
draw out a sack of seeds that
grow sometimes, lne govern
ment contracted with the Sump
tor Valley railroad to haul the
mail as far as Austin. It then
bent down the stago company to
starvation wages to haul it from
Austin, paralleling the railroad,
to Inland points. Because Uie
railroad company nnd stage com
pany do not ngree on the charges
for hauling the mail from Austin
to the terminus of the road the
mail is dumped off at Austin and
the stage instead of getting it at
Prairio City, where it should, is
compelled to go over tho moun
tain after it. Instead of getting
mnil at night it is held up until
the following day. If such ad
ministration of the postal depart
ment was credited to Turkey it
would be a surprise, and when it
comes from a government thnt
makes a nois about the efficiency
of its service it is n revelation.
If thero is no romedy for such
service all we can do is to say to
tho government to keep the gar
den seed also, and wo will forget
entirely that wo live in Americn.

New Goods! New System!
Having cut out the long credit
system, we are prepared to give
prices which will pay you to buy at
home. Remember, when you buy
at home you" create a market for
what you have to sell, no matter
what it consists of, whether it be
farm products, labor or legal ad
vise, you don't help your own com
munity, when you go outside to
trade; you don't help the farmers
when you buy outside flour. Last
year many people sent away and
went outside to trade. What is the
result? The wheels of industry
have been idle, no building, no bus
iness, no work, no market. Heavy
crops are being harvested and still
a large portion of the old crop is
on hand. It is now time for the
people to get together if they want
prosperity at home. Trade at our
place if you can: if not trade with
our competitor; but Trade at Home
