M O N G our large circle of readers there are a great many
who arc interested directly or indirectly in fruit growing,
dairying anil other branches of farming. A ll of these nat
urally wish to keep in close touch with agricultural activi
ties throughout the state; and to know about any fight which is
being waged for the measures Oregon farmers want and against
all sorts of schemes that are detrimental to the people and agri
cultural interests of this state.
W e have, therefore, made a special clubbing arrangement with
THE OREGON FARMER whereby any farmer or fruit
grower, who is one of our regular subscribers and who is not
now a subscriber of THh OREGON FARMER , will be en
titled to receive THE OREGON FARMER in combination
with this paper at the same rate as for this paper alone.
This offer applies to all those who renew or extend their sub-
criptions as well as to all new subscribers, If you are interested
directly or indirectly in Oregon agriculture, do not miss this
unusual opportunity but send your order in now. *
THE OREGON FARMER

devoting itself exclusively to the farming activities and interests
of Oregon. It has a big organization gathering the news of
importance to farmers, dairymen, fruitgrowers, stockraisers and
poultrymen; and it has the backbone to attack wrongful methods
and combinations and bad legislation, and support honest leaders
and beneficial measures. W e are confident that our readers will
congratulate us on our being able to make this splendid and
attractive clubbing offer.
