FOOLINtt FARMERS. Hazily Victimized by Clever Schemes of Wiley Agents. Agents who claim they are represent ing reliable houses in Portland and Scuttle are working a clever scheme to defraud the farmers. Their game is to call on him and in troduce themselves as representing a certain company and solicit orders for tea, coffe, spices, etc. After the agent has obtained a goodly supply of orders he returns to the city to have them tilled. As a matter of fact he has been sent out by an unscrupulous house to sell their goods under a special brand. These goods are of such inferior and adulterated stuff as to be unfit for human consumption. The orders for coffee are filled at a wholesale cost of 13 cents a pound—the farmer paying 35 cents per pound, a profit of 22 cents on every pound, or 15.50 on every 25 pound order. Orders for spices and extracts are filled in the nanae proportions. 4t is an easy graft to work, for the farmer has a foolish old fashioned no tion that he is being overcharg...

6 . To determine definitely tbo amount »f filth that gets into milk during the process of milking and how much this fun be lessened by washing the udders the following was done: It was determined after several trials with three different milkers on thirty cows that it requires an average of four and one-half minutes to milk a cow. A glazed dish eleven inches in diameter, the size of an ordinary milk pail, was placed in the top of a pail and held under the oow's udder in the same position as when milking. For four and one-half minutes the milker then went through motions similar to those made in milking, but without drawing any milk. The amount of dirt which fell into the dish during the operation was of course approximately the sane as would have gone into the milk during the milking process. The dirt caught in the dish was then brash ad into a small glass weighing tube, the udder washed and the process re peated. The dirt which fell from the washed adder was also carefully brushed ...

8 OPENING OF FALL SPECIAL SALE Sale Begins Saturday, September 19, and Continues One Week The bond that unites thousands to this store is strong and beneficial reciprocity. All for each and each for all—the greatest good to the greatest number. That is why The Fair has worked toward its mission so masterfully. You and A\e own this business; there are positive mutual benefits for us in the theory of co-operation along the following lines. In some cases we may not secure staple articles for much less money than some others pay, but we invariably sell cheaper, because we are satisfied with smaller profits. The actual amount paid for goods is only a part of their cost. Every man and woman understands that each department must contribute its pro rata percentage for general store expenses, including the loss that the credit system involves. We positively do not sell on credit; we do not allow discounts; we do not give commissions; we are large buyers; we are not extravagant in store manag...
