tainK of which coat but $750, went
to the Dry Farming Congress at Tulsa,
Oklahoma, and ubaolutely on the quality
of the grains, grasiiea. veifetables and
fruit produced by dry farming methods
in Oregon, he won the grand sweep

Show a yearling Jersey heifer, exhib

son of J. U. Stump, of Monmouth,
Ore., carried olT the sweepstake prize
over cattle from all parts of the United

Experts declare that Oregon has the
best climate in the world for the pro
duction of tlax and they predict that
flax and flax mills will be to Oregon
what cotton mills have been to the
south. A co-operative manufatcuring
firm is being promoted at Salem and it
is expected to begin opera'ions within
the near future. Coarse crashes and
twines for sewing wheat bags nd for
making nets will be the first articles
turned out, but as soon as a market can
h 4iliid the finer grade will be
produced, such as linen, damask, table
cloths and towels. About 1500 acres
of flax will be needed to supply the first
year's output of the factory. The
thr urn that flax imnoverishes the soil
is an exploded theory, it is declared
On the contrary, it prepares the soil
for heavy succeeding crop.
That the Dallcs-Cellilo Canal will be
completed and ready for the passage of
boats in about another year is the
opinion of F. C. Schubert of the United
States enigneers, who has had charge
of the work. With nearly all of the
government appropriation available,

unusually great, it is believed that next

Portland to points on the Upper Colum

One acre of celery, grown a short

Editor St. Helens Mist
My Dear Sir I have missed several
copies of the Mist, but owing to late
issue which fell upon me one evening
of lute I saw an extended reference of
a friend whom 1 have missed for several
years. I was glad indeed to learn inai
"Norm" was doing well and that the
people of St. Helens had come to know
him so well, as is indicated in the
reference to him as man whom all are
trying to induce to become your next
mayor, for if Norm will consent to run
unless he has changed very much, he
will be elected He was quite a humor
ist in this country and many times his
friends insisted upon hi entertaining
them at public recitals where h wa
especially at home in song and humor
ous recitation?, though he disliked vau
deville. He has yet some quaint pro
duction of "Honest John ClurW," an
original composition, but here' to
Mayor I.arabce. His many friends
nere will be glad to know of the esteem
in which he is held there, and he has
many here, for he was never in a
serious difficulty but once tnai me
writer is aware of, and that was when
he persuaded one of our best loved girls
to unite her fortune with his. but it
was the making of Norm for he realixed j
that he had to make good to justify the
choice she made.
Truthfully yours,
C. E. Densmore.
