RAISE MORE GARDEN SASS.
When the city man . raises a
liead of lettuce, a bunch of rad
ishes, a mess of tomatoes or of
. sweet corn, when he provides
his table with strawberries, or
with peas or cucumbers out of
his own garden, which is but a
portion of his residence lot, the
chances are ten to one that, he
has learned something if he has
done the work himself.
- The story is told of the farm
er of the' old fashion, who for
: years was satisfied with his lot,
until a city fellow, a cashier in a
.bank, with white hands and
ways rather refined as the old-
fashioned farmer regarde d them,
came into his neighborhood,
purchased a farm beside him
and proceeded to raise crops
that the farmer had never
dreamed about, i The farmer '
said: -'If this city chap, with
his city ways and scientific stuff
about soils and ?' adaptation of
crops, can come in a business
that I have followed all my, life,
I had better get busy and learn
how it is done." - The result was
two good farmers in the community,-where
one of indifferent
methods and producing power
had lived before.
The moral of the tale becomes
obvious when it is' understood
that the cashier-farmer was in
duced. to take an interest in the
phases of farming by an endeav
or to excel in the products of
his city garden. The pleasure
of the business led him to inves
tigate what was most conducive
to success in intensive farming:
and the result was a love for
farming rightly conducted af-,
The foregoing merely serves
as an illustration that may ap
ply to any walk or to all walks
in city life. The point is for
more men -to get' their feet and
hands in the soil, and more men
will learn to ( love it and to be
come producers in it. There is
pleasure, there is profit, there is
contentment in it. If you do not
believe it, try it and be con
THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY
Oregon is truly a land of op
portunity yet the fact is just be
coming known imperfectly to
the Nation at large. Stump land

the future orchard that will be
worth -$800 to $1000. Rich river
bottoms and slopes, nre the futue
truck and garden farm, the berry
patch and the small orchard.
Verdant hills that never shed
the gresn mantle outline to the.
observer the greatest dairying
and livestock district of the
Who knows this? Only
a few. Have the thousands of
thrifty, prosperous American
farmers rushing to the Canadian
Northwest heard the orchard
story? We fear .not. -Has the
scientific horticulturist of the.
Middle West, where - frosts.
drouth and Suminer, winds at-
tack his fruit alternately, been
told properly of Oregon's latent
orchard' wealth? Surely not,
else he would have come -before:
How manyof the busy Nation
realize that there are 4,000,000
acres pf peerless fruit land in
this state.an area capable of pro
ducing the choice varieties of
the whole country, which land
when properly- planted yields
$400 to $1400 gross, per acre
each year? Certainly few as yet.
Does the average investor grasp
the "wealth of this timber par
adise, this balmy home for live
stock, this land that has rich
soil, moist airs and tempering
breezes? He cannot and give
them sp little attention
Good work is being done, but
not enough. Something more ef
fective is needed. The state must
have more graphic description,
more wealth of fact. Living ir
refutable examples must be held
up continually. Every great suc
cess must be dinned into the
Eastern ear every day of every
month. All of the people of all
the state would have to feel "the
promptings of this duty, and
never fail to herald Oregon as
the land of unnumbered oppor
Interested in Oregon .
No class is more deeply interested in
Oregon than the high-grade office man
of the East , who fully appreciates the
esceptior.al investment opportunity that
exist in this stAte. Probably fruit tracts
are the more popular, at least if the fol
lowing quotation from letter written by
the department manager of one of the
: largest packing houses in Chicago, to an
Oregon friend, can be taken by index:
i am cetaimy appreciative 01 tne liter
ature pertaining to your grand country.
I am receiving more mail than our whole
departmeht.Many of our clerks have the
fruit bug in. their ear, and. when they
hear of anyone receiving dope along this
line they pounce upon it like pack of
hungry wolves would on a carcass. If I
should answer all the inquiries I have had
during the last few days I would have
to have an expert stenographer."
Easterners Are Astonished.
:: Visitors to the Pacific Northwest
from any other portion of the United
States are always impressed with the
wonderfully luxuriant vegetation west
of the Cascade Mountains. It keeps
them busy saying "Why, we cultivate
the syringa as a shrub at home, here it
grows wild. And 'thosa. ferns which
seem to do their growing in your winter
woods here, at home we . would only
have them in greenhouses. ' The Rho
