Page Two , , THE MONROE MONITOR -- Monroe, Washington Friday, June 24, 1927 THE MONROE MONITOR Consolidated With THE MONROE INDEPENDENT By J. J. RARDON &amp; SON PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Entered as second-class matter at the postoffice at Monroe, Washington, under the act of March 3, 1879. i A NEW COUNTY ROAD A new stretch of highway leading from the Scenic highway four miles east of Monroe is being graded out northerly for about a mile. This road is being built by the county commissioners on the day labor plan and is for the accommodation of several families of settlers who have moved into the locality. A gang of sxteen men is at work making this clearing and grading, under H. E. Cooper of Snohomish, foreman on the job. The road will finished up, including graveling, by August 1, thus making this link in the transportation system of our county avai.lable for the busiest season of the year and the time when good roads are best appreciated. Nearly a score of families will be served primarily by this improvement and the public generally will find it very handy. ANOTHER HERO Harry Sheldon, age 18 years, from Marysville wandered into Seattle looking for a job which he was unable to find after long trying. Fortune at last came his way. He was standing on a Seattle wharf where a tug company loaded and unloaded. A man fell from the wharf into the water, had gone down twice when the Arlington lad jumped in, collared the drowning man who was going down for the third time and pulled him to rescue on the shore and} with the aid of the pulmotor his life was saved. Sheldon has now a place on one of the boats of the tug company who evidently appreciated the pluck of a boy who is willing to take a chance, and a long one to save the life of a fellow huma:. being even though an entire stranger to him. Such acts are truly heroic and well worthy of reward. GRANGE FAVORS HOME LOYALTY An increasing movement which has been started among the Granges in many states, is a thorough dis- cussion of the relations of the local merchant Lo the mail order houses, and is an endeavor to interest rural people everywhere to patronize their own local stores more, and not sencV so much money to the long distance city man order houses. This subject has been raised for discussion in many local Granges during the past year, and has always proved an interesting topic. Emphasis is usually placed in such discussion upon the fact that the country merchant is an important factor in rural life, and that if he is dren entirely out of business it will be a serious loss to the small town community. It is a recognized fact that mail order buying is steadily on the increase, and that the largest patrons of such houses live in rural communities. Consequently the present Grange discussion i,s most timely, and this or- ganization seems to be in a better position to agitate it profitably than any other in the Unitedj States.--The Arlington Times. Good for the Granger. They are the really wi.qe men of our day and engagect in the greatest business on earth. If the world loves a fighting man, and we believe it does, our own Governor Hartley should be well beloved by the people of this state in whose interests, the Monitor believes, he is fighting might and mai From all ac- counts he must be having a wonderfully interesting time of i measuring up with the enemy from day to day. The putting up of roadside stands, where refresh- ments and other things are sold, is now a matter of the commissioners to permit or deny. A great many of these places have been built and placed in rather critical places on the roadside and adding quite materially to the accidental liability on our busy highwayp. "LUCKY" LINDBERGH A New York despatch states that before Charles Lindbergh left for Paris he thought his mother might like to have some newspaper clippings for her scrap book. So he ordered Walter Hyams & Company, a New York clipping bureau, to watch the newspapers for any- thing that might be printed about him and send the clippings to his mother. Hyams & Company have estimated that more had been printed about hi'm than about any other single story in history. Their estimate was that 27,000 columns of news- paper space were devoted to his flight to Paris. Which will make Mrs. Lindbergh quite a scrap book. Lindbergh's feat has appealed to the hero-worship ping instinct of the whole world. His smplicity, his modesty and his love for his mother have stirred the cosmopolitan readers'of his great adventure as no press promotion could do. The background of Nungesser's brave but disastrous gesture makes his exploit all the more arresting and his disposal of the money donated him by a generous French woman marks hi.m as en- dowed with sentiment and common sense. What the result of this flight of 3647 miles will be is open to many conjectures. The French press says it fore-shadows the binding of the nations together. Some Americans point to the fact that oceans are no longer barriers to attacks by overseas enemies on wings. Sober business men think of the record i.n terms of commercial traffic in the air in the day when Lindbergh's success will have become a commonplace, like Bleriot's crossing the English Channel. At any rate, Lindbergh has, as the Americans put it, "started something," as well as made his name im- nortal by sheer daring.--Vancouver, B. C., Bulletin. WISING UP THE PUBLIC The people of the state are entitled to be kept in- formed on what is going on in Olympia and it will be no fault of Governor Hartley's if they are not. For the governor not only has been unearthing a lot of things successfully kept under cover during years past, but he is baring these facts as quickly as he can get around to it, even though the disclousres must cause certain officials to squirm. That is true of the expose of conditions in the high- way department. Here he has run into his bicterest opposition up to this time. But the governor is making progress. His radio talk last night, based on facts and figures he has ob- tained from the records of the state highway depart- ment that have gotten out of the hands of Clausen, Ports and McCoy for4the time being, disclosed some amazing sidelights on the inner workings of the cement crowd and the strangle hold it has on the state. It is apparently true, as Governor Hartley says, that "the old crowd at Olympia can get away with anything." Whether Potts and Clausen are successful in their effort to retain things as they are, whether the cement companies continue to chip in $75,000 to $100,000 a year for the invisible government at Olympia, whether Mc- Coy is given another chance to handle moneys illegally, whether more streets in Shelton are paved by the state, Governor Hartley is entitled to praise for letting the people know that such things are going on. Perhaps the old crowd can continue to get away with anything. Perhaps, on the other hand, the people will take a hand at the next election.--Everett News of June 22. Four people are killed every hour by automobiles. One hundred and ninety-six every twenty-four, hours is quite a toll of human life and with all the ot;her ways that people shuffle, and are shuffled off the scene, the populatiofi increase is pretty well curtailed. There is no danger of a very rapid rise when all the obstructions are considered. Arlington is to have a three-days Fourth of July celebration and which is to be staged by the American Legion of that place. The boys promise three great big days of it and extend an invitation to neighboring towns to come and have a real celebration time in Arlington. I THE BRIDGE OF PROGRESS [ A TOWI'S SUCCESS depends mainly upon the number of successful people in it, and since material success is usually measured in terms of dollars and cents, this feature of local enterprise cannot be overlooked. Probably many are tired of hearing it preached that saving is the surest road to financial independence, but from a community standpoint the wisdom of this advice cannot be urged too strongly. Uuless the idea of properly invest- inKtime and' money is accepted, progress will be curtailed. A bank account, syltematically maintained, wll prove to be a bride over obstacles which now block the way to home ownership or the realization of some oher aim in lige. We can live in comfort, spend wisely and save at the same+time on a modest ineomL The important thing in saving is the regularity with which wt lay aside a certain amount at stated intervals. Men and women who lqew this practice are a decided asset to Monroe. They are the real boosters the town and more should be encouraged to follow their example. ++-* Ak AT THE 0HURCHES i 4444++4+4+4++ METHODIST EPISCOPAL Sunday School at 9:45 a. m.

County Extension]Service J Poultrymen at this time of year are ! interested, among many other pob- lems in getting the pullets developed m a way that they will produce the most vigorous, healthy and strong hens when they are r_eady to go into the laying house. It appears there are three factors which are very im- portant in the productive power of the pullet. First of these is the breeng, second, is the rearing and third, the feeding and management. To determine which is the most im- portant of these three would be next to ianpossible and a great deal can be said in favor of every one of them. However, poultrymen are interested in the factor now at hand. It is well agreed that for pullets to mature into vigorous birds they need plenty of range. It is not well agreed, apparently, what constitutes a good range. Birds will be found on bare lots, without shade, under rather crowded conditions and in fact under most any conditions one could imag. ne. According to Mr. Buchanan, the ideal range is one which provides plenty of shade, green feed and water and has never had chickens on it before. Old ranges are likely to be infested with disease germs such as round worms tape worms, coccida and many other common poultry dis- eases. In addition to being free from these objectionable pests, new ground is apt to be full of bugs and insects which makes ideal conditions for growing pullets. They also delight in green, shady nooks and spend many hours scratching in the green growing along banks of small streams or m pastures which have grown up to grasses and clovers. The rang should be big enough to provide them plenty of room to get considerably away from their roosting quarters. The value of good range is seen at once in the plumage, of the birds and in the pigment stored i their bodies. White fowls of the yellow skin variety show much deeper, yellowier pigment when they have both shade and green feed. This pigment is sometimes called the pullets bank ac- count upon which he must draw dur- ing the long winter months. The well grown pullet will have a large supply of this pigment stored up for use at the beginning of her laying period. Arnold Z. Smith, county agent.
