The question ot how best to diversify the
products of their farms is the leading ques
tion with the farmers of Clackamas county
now that wheat has eone so low and hops
become so uncertain in price. Fruit raising
offers a change to his products, but the av
erage farmer makes a woful failure offruit
growing, for it lakes skill, care, and endless
patience to be a successful orchard ist. Be
sides men's testes differ, one preferring to
handle stock, another some other branch of
farm work. Dairyirg while not requiring
so gTeat skill as fruit raising is yet an in
dustry that requires more than average i
ekill and care to make it profitable. If
properly handled the dairy one year with
another will give the best returns to tbe
farmer of any of the products of his farm.
To get tbe most out of it though, cream
eries are absolutely necessary, for the aver
age farm butter has a poor reputation in
the markets, and even if a farmer makes
good butter it all goes as "country butter,"
and at a low price.
There are many localities in this county
where creameries could be made profitable.
Nearly the whole county is first class grass
land, and no difficulty is encountered in
securing pasturage or an ample hay crop.
In central locations like Molalla. Marquam,
Eagle Creek, Sandy and other points, cream
eries could be made profitable for they would
have a large section to draw from remote
from any large town.
It can be charged that nearly half the
creameries started in this state have been
failures. It is a fact and, the reason is ap
parent. All the creameries that have failed
have been started in or near large towns
like Oregon City. The dismal failure of the
Oregon City creamery is one of such. Its
failure w,as due to the fact that the farmers
who could supply it with milk found a more
profitable market in peddling their milk to
private families. Hay raising was another
obstacle, for where low freights and a good
market can be had it pays better than to
keep cows and sell milk to a creamery.
Bat to the farmers who are at a distance
from a large town and can neither market
their bay nor milk to advantage, the cream
ery Is a boon, for it consolidates their pro
ducts so that freight rates cat no figure and
gives a steady market at a fair profit.
In addition to keeping pows the farmer is
enabled to add bog raising and thus increase
the diversity of his farm products.
Another important point in favor of
stock on a farm is that the farmer is euabled
to constantly enrich bis land instead of
wearing it out as wheat and hay do.
One CorvaMs business house moved
to Other and fresher pastures on last
Monday, and two or three others are
preparing to follow suit. Their departure
lessens the number who pay rent, spend
money for a living, and help to bear the
common tax burden. It diminishes the
town's wealth and the number of people in it.
Lack of business, caused by Corvallis peo
ple sending abroad for their clothing, dress
goods, groceries, printing, etc., explains
why these firms aregoingaway. If enough
people persist in sending away for articles
that they can get just as good and just as
cheaply at home, by and by there will be
no town left to tell the tale.
The foregoing is from tlie Corvallis Times,
and is a (rank admission vf the dullness
that is afflicting that town. Corvallis Is no
worse off than many other towns of the
state that are simply waiting for something
to turn up and times to get better. Musi-
ness will not come to a place, It takes
rustle, bard work and a tireless industry to
keep a town alive these days, and if a wait
ing policy is carried out it will be but a
question of lime when bankruptcy will over
take tbe business interests and crush them.
While we do not claim an unusual amount
of business push in Oregon City, yet the
fact is plain that this city has a mure solid
prosperity than anv other town on the
Coast. There has not been a failure of a
business house of any size for years past,
and I lie wholesalers all look upon Oregon
City as a good town to do business with.
With the large and constantly increasing
pay roll that Oregon City has, her future is
assured, and there is not another town in
Oregon that will made so good a grow th in
the next live years.

census of the city as a basil, figures out that

The mortality among horses in this
county during the past w inter has been very
high, what is called the " still's" and " slug
gers" being the alleged cause of so many
deaths. I n regard to the cause of these dis
eases the New Era correspondent of the
Kntekpkisx doubtless diagnoses it very
closely when he states that there would be
fewer sil k horses if farmers would take bet
ter care of them. Lack of ventilation, light
and cleanliness in the stables, insufficient
water, and a continued diet of dry food
doubtless have something to do with bring
ing on attac ks of staggers and similar dis
eases. Letting horses stand out in the
weather or in an open barn is anotherfrult
ful source of trouble, and is the cause of the
death of many fine animals. Both from a
humanitarian as well as a business point It ' 4.

give them the best of care, for the horse is
I one of man's most faithful servants and
deserves better treatment than he often
gels from ignorant or brutal owners.
DUTY OF MOTORMEN.
The rights and duties of the drivers of
vehicles and the managers of an electric car
as respecting each other were fixed recently
by a decision of the full bench of tbe su
preme court of Massachusetts, in the case of
Alexander Ellis against the Lynn and Bos
ton railroad company.
Mr. Ellis was riding in a buggy with bis
daughter along Beech street, Lynn, when
his horse became frightened at the sound of
the motor and continued sounding of the
gong of an electric car and ran away throw
ing Mr. Ellis and his daughter from the
buggy. The evidence tended to show that
the electric car was 100 feet away when the
Thk damage suit of Malcolm Bradley
against Clai kamas county, now on trial 111
Portland, involves a principle that is of
much interest to the taxpayers of this
county. Should Bradley win the case the
county would soon be overwhelmed with
damage suits, and the entire revenues of the
county would not sutlice to pay off all the
veruicis. o one aisputcs dui wuat tne
county should pay for tll damages caused
by criminal carelessness or negligence in
keeping np bridges or on dangerous fills,
but to pay damages in every runaway
caused by faulty harness or vehicle, or
by being upset by roots or stumps, or by a
tumble down a bill, is neither justice nor
business. It is a physical impossibility to
place the roads of Clackamas county in a
condition so that they are absolutely safe,
but the damage is lowered to a minimum
when people use ordinary caution and do
not attempt to drive unbroken horses to

The chivalry of Alabama have placed
themselves on record again in refusing bet
ter protection to women. A bill was intro
duced into the late legislature of that state
to raise tbe age of consent from ten years
to fifteen years, but it bad so few friends
that it never got out of the committee's
hands. Even here in Oregon it took some
thing of a fight to raise the age of consent.
Two years ago Senator Alley introduced a
bill raising the age limit from fourteen to
eighteen years, but it met with defeat. He
again introduced it this year when by com
promising on sixteen years he got it passed
and it is now a law.

fendants contended that it was not negli
gence on his part to sound the gong, but
rather a duty which the company owed to
pedestrians and other travelers on 'the

" It is a well-known fact that most horses
are frigh tened at their first view of a moving
electric car, especially if they encounter it
in a quiet place away from the distracting
noins of a bnxy city street. It is only by
careful training and a frequent repetition of
tbe experience that they acquire courage to
meet and pass a car on a narrow street with
out excitement. The rights of a driver of a
borse and manager of an electric car under
such circumstances are equal. Each may
use the street and each m aafrfjse it with a
reasonable regard for the safety and eon
veinience of the other. The motorman is
supposed to know that his car ia likely to
frighten horses that are unaccustomed to
the sight of such vehicles, while most horses
sire easily taught, after awhile, to meet
them without fear. It is bis duty if be see
favor. He is unquestionably tbe inontcu
palde man in the country for such a tank,

formed, as none of the present histories of
the war convey a proper idea of the part
