The future prosperity o f this
section of Oregon depends upon
the agricultural resources o f the
country. Heretofore the princi
pal industry has been the raising
and selling o f hay, and a small
amount of grain. But the farm
ers and ranchers have come to
see the hand writing on the wall,
and are graduaily getting into

It is a far better proposition
to feed hay and grains to hogs
and cattle for fattening purposes
than it is to grow the hay and
grain alone for the market. It
has l**en ably demonstrated that
hogs fattened on the products o f
the farm have brought in a big
increase j«*r acreage over selling
the products outright
Quite a number o f farmers in
the Redmond territory have be
gun to lay plans for extensive
hog ami cattle raising. On the

F. H. Swa.vne, recently from

hog industry, and his father will
soon arrive here and also engage

ALFALFA AND CLOVER
GOOD THIS SEASON
Cold Spring Does Not Show
Any Appreciable Ef
fect On Crop
The 1911 hay crop in this sec
tion promises to turn out equally
as well this season as in previous
years. In a number o f cases the
first cutting will go way ahead of
any other year, and throughout
the Redmond District the second
crop will be large.
Owing to the cold spring it
was thought the haying season
would be late this year, but the
excellent growing weather that
followed the cold weather early
in June has brought the crop
along in fine shape and only a
few days later than in former
years. Alfalfa and clover on the
whole, will make an exceptionally
fine crop this year, and the yield
will be largely increased over
that o f former seasons.
Samples o f the crop are being
shown in Redmond, and some o f
the best specimens o f grains and
grasses have been sent to the
exhibition cars o f the Great
Northern Railroad at Spokane to
compete for the prizes to be o f
fered by that road.
All o f the practical farmers
and ranchers in this section are
well satisfied with the crop and
