If ovor tlioro was a time when tho

Vr'hon ono romembors that mora than
olghty per cont of tho taxes In Mai

tho Justlco of sotting astdo a portion,
and It Is n mighty small portion, of
tho sum collected for a sorvlco to tho
farmors, Is apparent.
At tho mooting of tho Farm Bur

tation with thoso who nro going In
to that field of activity; whlla tho
gonoral county ngcnt will direct tho
work of tho bureau In field crops
and marketing nnd nil of tho varied
itnos of agricultural endeavor.
Whllo Canyon county Is planning
on three county agents, thoro nro
thoso In Malheur county who would
do nway with tho offlco entirely.
That spells tho difference bo
twoon tho ranch or who Is looking
Into tho future nnd who Is scaklng
to find his way out of tho prcsont

by being mora officiant , by using
the means at hand of gaining Infor
mation as to moro profitable crops
and moro economical methods of
production; and tho man who plans
on cutting out nil oxponscs and mere
ly staying In tho rut.
Unless wo accept tho theory that
thoro Is nothing now In agrlcultura;
that progress In that groat field of
endeavor has ceased, than thoro Is
ncod for a county agent and tho In
formation that goes to tho fnrmor
through his offlco after Its worth has
boon proven in tho agricultural col

Tho bureau has no wild-eyed social

It Is Just such cases as that pre
sented by tho E. A. Van Slcklln
fiasco that mako bolsheviks. It Is
foolish to howl about tho Non Parti

It Is about time that somo of the

Among other nuthorltlvo Informa
tion which Don Iloso gavo tho ranch
ors of Malheur county In his addross
last Saturday was this:
"Tho farmors probloms aro far
moro economic than thoy aro politi
cal." and further whon ho said:
"Wo roust got out of tho buslnoss
of suppling tho market with raw pro
ducts only but get Into tho manufac
turing buslnoss and supply n finished
product. Wo must get tho dairy
cow nnd tho old hon on tho Job
turning out a product that will stand
transportation to market."
"I can mako any good Irrigated
40 aero farm In Malheur county
pay", doclared Mr. Hobs. "And this
Is no Idle statoment for, I havo
farmed In this soctlon, for Canyon
county Is practically Identical with
Malheur county,, for moro than 20
years, and know that It can bo dono;
but not by raising hay.
"Wo must havo dairy cows, chick
ens nnd hogs on ovory ranch, thoy
must bo producers, not boarders.
Tho troublo with tho ranchors, In
many casos Is, that thoy do not
know whether thoy aro keeping good
stock or bad stock. Ovor in Can
yon county wo aro going to know."
It Is because the American Farm
Iluroau Fodoratlon and Its branches
are sotting for thomselvos tho task
of solving tho oconomlc probloms In
a buslnossllko and scientific mannor
that tho program of tho organiza
tion appeals to the business man as
woll as tho thoughtful rancher. It
