C. extension president. director, is now ins well and their strength and value have been enriched recently by the importation of some valuable cattle from the Island of Guernsey, and Ore gon's splendid Holsteins are not to be overlooked, not by any means. One of the most enthusiastic breed ers of the Holstein is Henry McCall, proprietor of the Westernwold ranch in central Oregon. In 1912 Mr. McCall started his present Holstein herd by getting a number of Holsteins from New England. As time went on he developed this herd until he now has some famous cows and has substan tially aided in raising the standard of the breed in this state. Cows Iut on Test. Three years after the "Westernwold ranch received its .start in' raising Holsteins, the cows were put on test and the testing has gone on - ever since with the result that every fe male in the herd has at least one yearly record or is now on test. The "Westernwold herds have never been culled and all the animals owned by the ranch, except two, were born in the stables of. the ranch. One of the first cows to be run on yearly test was Florence Idella Sharp, No. 232054. She freshened at four years of age and made 24,667 I pounds of milk, and 103 pounds of utter. This record won . her first pi-Ue Holstein - Friesian association money for the year. Championship Still Held. -This record was the state record for the breed. But this same cow has just completed a record of 27,235 pounds of milk and 1146 pounds of butter, which still makes her champion of the state. Another heavy producer is Fairview Johanna Korndyke, No. 16S7SI. As a junior three-year-old she made a yearly record of 20.462 pounds of milk and S10 pounds of butter. At four and a half she made 20.140 milk and S30 butter and she has just com pleted her third consecutive record of 26.396 pounds milk and 1025 butter. Although the ranch doesn't take the seven-day tests seriously, still these tests are recorded and as a sample they have Tulip Pietertje West view 2d and her record of almost 32 pounds, making her a state seven-day cham- pioi. market is so active all the time that little difference is noted in the sea sons so far as the number of trans fers is concerned. Farms of all .sizes and in all parts of the county are being sold and considerable city property also is changing hands. Many of those who are purchasing land in this vicinity now have come to Oregon recently from the middle west. Phone East 3310 Portland Top Go. Bast Water and Alder Sts.

Beavers have long had a reputation of providing themselves with substantial homes. Those in the Cottage Grove country are adding o mat reputation by proving them selves provident in filling their lard- rs with the delicacies found in Cot tage Grove's famous orchards and gardens. Hamilton Veatch has two anDla trees which stand near a beaver dam. They are set back quite a distance from the wire fence which protects them against devastation. The beav ers first attempted to break through the fence by gnawing away the boards along the bottom edge, but the wire extended down past the boards. After earing away a number of boards a nappy idea came to them and they burrowed down under both boards and wire fence and now have a beat er. path from the water to the apple trees, where they gather the wind falls. Their sense of smell must be good for the. trees are a distance back from the fence. The apple trees are growing at the eug-f ot one ot tne best fields of corn in Lane county and Mr. Veatch great Iy fears the beavers may wish to put away some corn and raise havoc with his field.

The effect of sodium nitrate on prune growtn wis seen at ur. marx Hayter's orchard. Four pounds of ni trate was applied to half the area. the other half left untreated. The part fertilized showed luxuriant growth against the yellow appearance OX the untreated half. The deepest furnace chamber of any Oregon prune drier, 16 feet deep,- is the new six tunnel drier built for A. C. Atwell of Forest Grove, formerly of the Mate board of horticulture. -The National Canners association,' said Professor Wiegand, "now has 13 canneries under my inspection and on my visit I noticed a marked improve ment in the sanitation. The neatness of the women employes would do credit to any kitchen. Just now the plants are handling loganberries, raspberries, and the largest crop of cherries in many years. T consider Puyallup the best berry district in Washington. At the plants they are very busy handling straw berries and red raspberries, some of which are barreled in syrup for ship ment to preserving plants.
