We believe that It Is the concensus of opinion of the telephone using public that all service should be ren dered by and over one telephone sys tem and for this purpose and that end In view, we have been using our efforts to help bring about a consoli dation of the two companies. We cannot see the use or good Judgment In our people going down In their pocket and digging up the cash to pay the expenses of keeping up two central oillces In our town of Oregon.

For your benellt, we will say that at the present time and for the past 15 years, financially, our company has been a success. We have more tele phones paying us rentals now than at any time before; however, to accom plish this end, we are willing to sell our stock at a reasonable price to the Farmer Mutual Company or we will buy at a reasonable price any of the stock now owned privately by any of the Farmer stockholders, who are us ing this stock to sub-let telephones for their private gain. The Home Com pany will agree to do all the switch ing of all the Mutually owned rural telephones, furnishing all the otilce equipment and expenses, all the lines within the city limits of Oregon, maintain and keep In repair all such telephones when the same are brought to our office In Oregon, free of charge. 44HE straw without a flaw," that's what you'll say when you inspect our great as sortment.
