The Chairman, Mr. J. F. Backensto,
Plkasast. Monday afternoon, in company
with Messrs. J. Blevhis and A. J. Johnson," we
took a spln-lnto the country, seated In one of '
Ans. Marshall's handsome turnouts. Barring
the dust, which was deep enough In places,
the ride was exhilarating and. most enjoyable.
At Mr. C. P. Knighton's we fouud that excel
lent thresher, the "Invincible," under super
intendence of Mr. W. 8. Reedor, turning out
wheat in the most satisfactory manner. -Mr.
Knighton informed us that bis crop wonld fall
considerably short of an average one. He has
a large and weL" cultivated farm, and Is a most
liberal gentleman. In the garden near bis
comfortable residence he has one of ths largest
blackberry patches, of the Lawton variety, In
the valley. Upon visiting the patch we found
the fruit, large, ripe and luscious, in great
abundance in fact the bushes were literally
bending nndet their tremendous load of ber
ries. With a good appetite for berries, we un
dertook to thin that crop somewhat, bnt after
doing our "level best." we were compelled to
retire without having made any appreciable
begincment on that patch. On each side of
the road as we passed along men and machines
were busily engaged securing the golden har
vest. Leaving Mr. Knighton's, we crossed the
Calipooiaand were soon at the fine farm of Ble v-
ins Bros., one of the best ranches in old Linn,
where we found "Stick," aided by a two-horse
thresher, turning out wheat at the rate of a
bushel in sixty seconds. And here we struck
another bonanza in the shape of Bartlett pears,
plums and red-cheeked apples. Returning to
ward the city we noted improvements here
and there, giving evidence of thrift and indus
try on the part of our agricultural friends.
Charley Boargardes lias erected a fine-looking
two-story frame, house on his farm, besides
making other Improvements adding to the
looks aad conveniences of his beanttf ul place.
At Uncle George Hughes' we notid quite a

engaged in "grubbing" and clearing new land
for the plow, giving evidence that Uncle

lost none of his energy and push, but is still In
