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
the hog and stock raising busi­
Hog raising, stock raising,

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
John Alemeter place five miles
north o f the city, 1(50 acres are

proprietor is going to put in a
large lot o f hogs.

southeast o f Redmond now has
altout 130 brood sows, and is in­

F. M. White o f this city, has a
good size«! bunch o f hogs on his
ranch near town, and expects to
extend his operations in the hog
and stock line.
F. H. Swa.vne, recently from
Washington, 'is going into the
hog industry, and his father will
soon arrive here and also engage
in that business.
These are a few o f the ranch­
ers around here who have found
out that it is more profitable to
feed their hay and grain to hogs
and cattle than to sell the same

1911 CROP OF
Cutting of First Crop Will
Show a Very Satis­
factory Yield
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
increased yield.
W. B. Chapman has some tim­
othy that it would be hard to beat
any where.
M. E. Landes’ crop is better
, this year than last, and only five
days later.
B. A. Kendall's clover and al­
falfa will go two tons to the acre
if not better, and is a better yield
than last year.
Farmers who have land plaster­
ed their land are getting a great­
ly increased yield.

will visit our place and let us

cooling drinks from our foun­
tain, or a dish of ice cream.
