The Little Rifles-Big in Quality
YOU are coin? to buy a .22 calibre rifle, single shot
or repeat cr you'll find that many well known crack
shots started with a Remington .22. Their advice now
would be "By all means, get a Remington" because thev
know that there is a tendency in some quarters to look
upon these models as only "a small boy's rifle" and to
cheapen them so that they can be sold at a price.
You nave ju aa much rinht to expect full akooting value in your
22 caliUe arm aa in your $75 big game rifle.
You want the Remington .ingle .hot at from $J to $6, 22. .25-10
or .32 calibre, made by the aanie people who malte the famous
Hemingtun Autoloading Riflce.

O. A. C. Notes
Oregon Agricultural Collece.Cor
vallis Ore., Au. 11. Cooperation
between business men and farmers
in clearing ioirged-ofT lands is the
method advocated by Dr. James
Withycombe, director of the Ex
periment station of the Oregon
Agricultural College. In discuss
ing the importance of the work and
the best means of accomplishing it.
Dr. Withycombe says that in Col
umbia county alone it is estimated
that there are 10,0,000 acres of this
logfed-olT hind, excellent, when
cleared, for general agriculture,
small fruits and dairying. And he
thinks it can be transformed from a
non-productive to a highly pro
"To do this." says Dr. Withy
combe, "is too large an undertaking
for the average small farmer, single
handed. The plan I suggested is
for the bankers and merchants of
Columbia county to purchase pow
der in large quantities and sell it to
farmers at low rates of interest.
Or, thev might induce some of the
large powder manufactures to sell
to the farmers on time, payable in
installments. Small groups of
farmers may then purchase donkey
engines cooperatively. After the
stumps have been split and loosened
by the powder, they can be pulled
and piled up by the engines."
The doctor thinks that acreage
farms mny be bought by employees
from owners of logged oft" hinds
and homes built upon them, there
by saving rent. As fast as cleared
the land can be planted to small
fruits. Later, cooperative can
neries should be started in which
most of the work will lx done by
members of the families.
Oregon Agricultural Collego, Cor
vallis. Ore., Aug. Hy n system
of marketing direct from producer
to consumer, farmers and other
producers may obtain 5 or C cents
per dozen more than current prices
for strictly fre-h eggs, while the
consumers in lnrge cities may ob
tain strictly fresh eggs at 5 or 6
cents per dozen below current mar
ket prices. These facts were learned
in a direct market experiment, ex
tending through a year or more,
conducted by the Poultry depart
ment of the Oregon Agricultural
College, under the management of
I'rof. James Dryden. During the
time covered by the experiment the
eggs were gathered daily, or twice
a day in very warm weather, and
kept in a cool place until ready for
shipment, usually three or four
days. They were then packed in a
neat case containing 12 dozen eggs
and shipped by expre.s to Portland
customers. Express charges on
the eggs were 35 cents, the distance
being about 100 miles. Return
charges on the empty case were 5
cents. Thus the entire cost of
transportation was about 3 cents
per dozen. This charge could be
reduced one half by shipping two
cases at a time as they could both
be sent and returned for the price
One of the main disadvantages of
the present system of marketing
through the middle men is the un
businesslike method of buying from
the producer at one price for all
grades. Eggs are received in mixed
lots, big and little, clean and dirty,
fresh and stale, at the same price
for all. But they have not all the
same value, and when they are
candled and classified by the commission-men,
some are found worth
less and thrown out, others inferior
and quoted at lower prices, while
the strictly fresh eggs are made to
bear the loss on the poor ones, as
well as the profits of the dealers.
The direct market plan is giving
excellent satisfaction to consumers
in Portland. In the course of a
year, one customer received but
two eggs in a damaged condition,
and they were but slightly cracked.
The eggs were cheaper than the
public market eggs, and in such
good condition that his small family
used them by the case without any
That the system ia practicable
for farmers and city consumers,
Professot Dryden has no doubt.
The poultry department of the O.
A. C. is willing to cooperate with
farmers, through the college ex
tension division, in securing direct
markets in Portland for a limited
number of guaranteed egg.
