People have no objection to paying the
right price for a commodity once they
know what the right price is.
The right price for gasoline is based first,
on the cost of crude oil second, on the
cost of refining and third, on the cost of
distributing the refined product.
During the war prices were fixed by
Governmental demand rather than by
The very low prices obtaining in 1915 were
due to two causes—first, to ultra-conservatism
due to uncertainty second, to the spectacular
production of oil in the Cushing fields, a pro
duction which dwindled almost as magically
as it increased.
Since the Armistice the cost of every item
entering into the production, refining, and
distribution of petroleum products, has in
creased to an unprecedented degree. The
production of crude petroleum has not kept
pace with the demand. This has caused fierce
competition for such crude oil as is obtainable.
This competition has forced the price of
crude up until it is costing the Standard Oil
Company (Indiana), f. o. b. Whiting, $4.30 a
barrel, against $2.92 on Nov. 11,1918 —an
increase pf 47 percent.

IK CREAKING HOME EFFKIEWY
Increased home efficiency is ont
of the popular projects in the coun
ties in which home demonstration
agents are maintained by the Uni
ted States deipartmnt of agriculturt
and the agricultural colleges. Last
year 166 counties in the north and
west carried on county-wide cam
paigns for increased home, efficiency
and 1,077 farm families in the same
territory were assisted during 1ha
time in rearranging farmhouse oi
kitchen as an important first Mer
in efficient housekeeping.
In the 15 southern states lac
year 1,163 new houses were built ac
cording to plans advised by the homo
demonstration agents, 2,736 remod
eled, and 26,811 labor-aving de
vices made or purchased.
H(!RUB COWS IV WCHIETV
Mrs. Scrub Dairy Cow is about to
break infjo the upper class of dairy
society. ""Madam Scrub will parade
with the blue-tolooiled aristocracy of

The U. S. department of agricu'
•ture expects to exhibit a grade fam
ily conisting of a pure-bred sire, a
scrub cow, and the grade offspring
of this mating at. the National
Dairy show to be held at Chicago ir
October, 1920. Some of the cattle
clubs will also have similar exhibit:-,
The purpose of this feature is
Interest the owners of scrub and
low-grade herds and to show in a
practical way the manner in which
such a herd may be improved by the

much to combat the prevailing ide?
that the National Dairy Show is of
interest only to the owners of pure
bred herds. It will help also 1o ad
vertise the fact that the United
States department of agriculture
through its ''better sires" campaign
is offering cooperation and aid to br
owner of poorest herd as well as to
the owner of improved stock.
After all. Mrs. Scrub desn't fie*
into society on the strength of ber
own qualities: she is accepted pure

Brookings, July 9.—To lay dra'n

Tailing a chance on having ther.i

The -fact that water runs through
t.he tiles as &oo^ as they are laid is
by no means proof that they are

enough "ha-cMall" in them to.causi
