Result of Experiments at Hillsboro and

Irrigation in this Valley The Fine
Crops Raised Now Could be Better.
In the Willamette Valley there
are many people who do not be
lieve that a crop of clover can be
obtained in the year it is sown.
In Bulletin No. 1088, dated June
13, 1908, the United States De
partment of Agriculture shows
that this has been, achieved with
irrigation in the Tualatin portion
of the Willamette Valley.

President Taft has no rival in
popularity in the Northwest.
When he visited Washington
State in September, 1907, he was
greeted by record - breaking
crowds all along his line of trav
el. Business was suspended in
Seattle and everyone made it a
point to be at some vantage
point to see the big, good-natured
'Bill" Taft. His consent to
speak in the natural ampithea-
ter and to spend the-day looking
over the S air grounds will prove
a valuable drawing card, as it
will give every fair visitor oppor
tunity to see and hear the high
executive of the United States.
