MOLALLA, Ore., Sept. 1. The work
of grading down the Kohhlns hill, one
and a half miles east of here, will be
completed in about two weeks. One
week's work with the steam scraper
and one week's work with teams will
finish it up.
This Job was let by contract and the
work has been in progress for about
two months. When completed it will
be a direct benefit and a convenience
to a large section of'country tributary
to Molalla on the east, as heretofore
practically no heavy loads could be
pulled over the hill.
One feature that excited Interest
during the work was the discovery of
limbs of trees, some petrified, about
20 feet down. Many theories were ad
vanced as to how they got there.

would have a much more prosperous to try her hand In doing as much for
jure the land if grown In rotation with
other crops. One crop of flax every
third year prepares the land for a
heavy succeeding crop, preforably of
Fourth: Flax Is indigenous to Ore
gon. Canada and much of the lands ly
ing east of the Cascade range are
able to produce a good crop for seed
with short fiber. , The farmers of Min
nesota harvest this crop for the seed
by modern machinery and use the,
short fiber for coarse material and
twine. The climate and soli of the
Willamette Valley enables the grower
to produce a grade of flax fiber equal
to any grown In the world for fine fab
rics. The altitude, moisture and char-'
acter of the water peculiarly fits this
section for the purpose of spinning
and weaving In a class with Ireland
and Belgium, thug making this one
of the chosen sections for the growing
of fiber and the manufacture of the
finest linen fabrics.
Fifth: The old Idea that labor Is so
high In this country that flax cannot
be pulled by hand and treated at a
profit is now answered by the state
ment that flax Is sown broadcast,
mowed, raked and bound as ordinary
grain, the wonderful length of the val
ley fiber making this possible. v
Improved methods of retting
There Is but a limited part of the
earth's surface which is capable of pro
ducing the first grade of line fiber.
The fiber grown In Russia 'being of
coarse grade and fitted for the coarser
products, Belgium and Ireland alone
at present furnish the high grade fiber,
which requires a long fiber of great
strength and silken texture.
Should the great war continue, there
must of necessity be a tremendous
shortage In the world's output, Ore
gon alone being able to meet the de
mand for this much-needed finished
product. An opportunity most forcib
ly presents itself to the citizens and
farmers to make the Wllamette Val
ley the home of the greatest flax grow
ing and linen manufacturing centers
of the world.
