HALL Potatoes And Grain But Half A Crop Owing To Dry Spell—Prospects For Beans Good. County Agricultural Agent, S. B. Hall, was in Lents Wednesday and made this office a pleasant call. Mr. Hall is actively and efficiently looking after the agricultural interests of this county and is thoroughly conversant with conditions. He, with other county agents of the State, met in Portland last week to submit a report of condi tions in their respective counties to Carl Vrooman and it developed that be cause of the continued dry spell the potato and grain crops of the state will only yield about 50 per cent. The pros pect for beans is fairly good. The acreage set to beans in Multnomah County this year is greatly in excess of anything ever before attempted. The impression has prevailed that extensive growing of beans was not practicable in this section since a late, dry Fall was essential to the maturity of the crop. However experiments during the last two or three years have resulted so suc- sessfuliy as to greatly encourage in creased attention to the cultivation of this profitable crop. A representative from the famous Heinz factories who was in Portland and the surrounding country in the Spring contracting for beans stated that the beet lieans re ceived at their plant were shipped from Portland and were grown locally. He stated in this connection that the pos sibilities of this section for growing Is-ans for seed wen* practically limit less. Mr. Hall was assisting in the final arrangements for the yearly Field Day at Gresham on Saturday. A splendid program has been prepared, full an- nouncement of which appears in another column of this issue.
