CLUB OF TEN IS MOST FORMIDABLE WEAPON TO USE AGAINST HOME CITY The soap you purchase from your local merchant will keep your house, person aad eonsciace clean, and put money in your purse to buy more soap. Soap purchased out of town does not possess such commendable qualities. The "Club of Ten" is a most formidable weapon to -wield against your home, your home town, your neighbor and your Irfccd Money forested out of town is gone torever, but money tnat is invested with your local merchants conies back to you in the comfort assuring pay envelope. The erroneous impression that larie corporative monopolies give something for nothing has a tendency to stunt the pay envelope by crip- pi-ing local commercial conditions. Before you send your next mail order to a "catalog-tie house" Just ask yourself the following question: 1. 'Where fiia I get this money? 2. Do tbe people to whom I send it contribute in any way to the. comfort or physical well being of me and mine? . 3. Would these people show a spirit of leniency with us if we met with reverses? 4. "Would they tide me over if iny husband was to be laid off from his work? 5. Would my fellow town folks think as well of me as they do now if they knew thai I am one of a party who are aiding in crippling the business conditions o£ Uiis community? 6. Are we doing right by sending our earnings out of the community wben such a course jeopardizes our home interests. 7. Do I save money or~ get better goods by dealing with catalogue houses? e 8. Am I going to prove muself an i ingrate by violating my reciprocal j duty to my friends and benefactors? j 0. Isn't this action o£ buying Iroro out-of-town mail order catalogue j houses one of perverted economy? j -10. Have not I an honorable obvious duty to render my home town by lending my aid and contributing ray mite for,its advancement? { The Courier has the best equipped Printing Plant in Payette Co., let us bid on your printing needs.

Bankers and business men have also been appealed to for support. An educational committee has undertaken LO demonstrate the possibilities of the tractor aa a means of relieving farm labor shortage. A labor committee is taking a census of town aad city dwellers who are willing and abel to help at agriculture. A Lran»- porUXicm committee has under consideration various methods of transporting workers to the farms. Funda were raised in the county to promote all of this work. The committee reports that iis plans are going forward and results are now appearing. Farmers of Fayette are convinced that tlie Ijehfgh county plan will vrork just as -well here aa m other sections of the state. Practically all of the tillable soil in tbe county is adaptable to the use of tractors. A number of farmers are known to be conaidermg the purchase of this iate?t addition to farm machinery.
