might be dispensed with. The hydrants
are supposed to be flushed once a month.

The many . friends of - Dr. Rowley
greet him continuously with the inquiry:
"Well, how's the boy?" Considering
the fact that the recent arrival at
the home of Dr. Rowley was a soprano
rather than a basso,, the inquiry is more

an explanation. Doc lays all his
trouble to some newpaper which re
ported the event incorrectly.

uui iwu ur uiree lines,
which muddled the meaning in a
couple of instances. Mr. Bane said:
"Some dressmakers have been wprked
into their graves, some have been on
the very verge," etc, etc. The G;-T.
left out the first part of the sentence.
In another place the phrase, "Asked
a dressmaker where she could find
another" that was not rushed to
death, was left out. These mistakes
are not critical nof serious but they
might , indicate that , Brp. Bane got
mixed. He didn't-it wasthe G.-T.

Prof. J. B. Horner gave a lecture
at Portland last Friday evening. Of
this the Oregonian said: "The address
of Professor Horner, of the chair of
history and political science of the
Oregon State Agricultural College, on
the "Early Literature of Oregon,"
delivered yesterday afternoon under
the auspices of the Portland Woman's
Club, was both entertaining and in
structive. The names of Sam L.
Simpson, Joaquin Miller, Colonel E. D.
Baker, Judge George H. Williams, Eva
Emery Dye, Ella Higginson, Edwin
Markham and many others whose
names are known in the song and story
of our early days, were mentioned, and
selections from the writings of some of
them were given in appreciative tones
to an appreciative audience. The his
tory of our early literature is yet to be
compiled,;: and relatively few of our
citizens are familiar "with many of Its
stirring events. Any thing tending to
awaken interest in this phase of our
development is of more thanVpassing
interest, Professor v Horner brought
research to his task and eloquence : and
enthusiasm to the delivery of his ad
dress'." ' -

It is expected thnt.-oraa r4,.
tne movement for the rnniri ttit
of the 200,000,000 acres of semiarid
lands in the west and south will be
given py the fourth dry farming con-
wuicn wui pe Held at Billings,

anee at the congress is expected to be
An exposition filled with exhibits of
dry farming products from all over
me west, which will be held in con
nection witn ; the meeting, will add
greatly to its interest aid will give' the
delegates and visitors definite m,0
the wonderful results which are being
m.-TOiupusnea - with little rainfall by
scientific soil culture.
In the minds of those best acquaint
ed with conditions in th nt h- i
the general belief that the semiarid
ianas,; handled by dry farming meth-r
vu, must in large measure solve tho
cry of the easternrpeople and the city
man ior larm, land.1? This land an. be

or half sections and if properly farm-

can be obtained on irrigated land.
No Longer an Experiment.
The methods used In tho an pflllori
dry farming no Idnger are an experi
ment Within the last five vears con
ditions of almost every conceivable
kind have been successfully encounter
ed.' Each season has developed new
and wonderful possibilities in the des
ert lands once they, are placed tinder
cultivation and once the little rainfall
obtained each ' year is properly pre
served.". '- . .. .. . . "-.
There is perhaps no better example
of the possibilities of dry farming than
in , Utah. , As one goes down through
the Bear river valley in the heart of
the Wastatch -range he sees great irri
gated fields of alfalfa, beets and grains
hi the valleys, while on the hillsides
are other equally beautiful fields of
waving grains, grown by dry farming
methods, where the rainfall always is
less than thirty inches a year..
So successful has been the dry farm
ing in this ,valley that many irrigators
come hillside dry farmers. On all sides
in this valley the dry farmers report
unusually successful crops. 1
" ( ' Growth, of the Movement.
When the third congress closed there
were about 1,300 members, and the
movement was established upon a per
manent basis as the. leading economic
force in the greater development of
the west and a powerful factor in the
betterment of every region of the1
world where agriculture- is being prac
ticed. ' Those memberships represented
the east and west of this country" and-
some foreign lands, but the bulk of
them ' were in Colorado, Wyoming,
Utah Idaho, Montana, the Dakotas
and other western states. . l(
The membership now is more than
5,300 and represents thirty-six states
and territories of the United States
and ten, foreign, countries. JJew Mex
ico leads, with 1,207 members; Wyo
ming is second, with 1,154; Nebraska
third, with 937; Montana has 202.
There are members In New Hamp
shire. Rhode Island, ' Massachusetts,
Connecticut New Jersey. Maryland,
Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New
York, Ohio, the District of Columbia,
Louisiana' and Illinois. Canada leads
the foreign lands with twenty-six
members: Mexico has ten and Aus
tralia nine. . British Columbia, Russia,
France, British South Africa, Hun

Department of Agriculture Active. -
While in Wyoming and Idaho this
summer Secretary of Agriculture Wil
son -took great 'delight in inspecting
districts where dry farming was in
progfess. 1 What he saw satisfied him
that dry farming had come to stay,
and it is the purpose of the depart
ment to encourage it as much as pos
sible. Considerable aid in that direction
has .already been given; a number of
crops, notably grains, have been dis
covered abroad which are peculiarly
adapted to dry farm culture. .Agents N
of" the department are in Siberia and
Turkestan and elsewhere ' in Asia
searching for new crops which can be
profitably grown ' Jn- the ' semiarid .
regions of the west without the aid
of irrigation.. ' . v . ,
One. of their recent discoveries is a
variety of alfalfa that will grow under
such conditions, an alfalfa which in.
the high, dry belt of Siberia -yields
two crops a year and in addition fur
nishes pasture for a brief period.. :. '

clubs of, foreign residents in Argentina.
