ticle on This Subject.
Farmers will do well to call on me before making arrangements elsewhere
Mr. IT. C. Huston furnishes the
Eugene Guard with the following
interesting article oil Red Wheat,
which shows conclusively that the
best tlonr is made from it, and cites
the authorities from the leading
millersi in the United States. We
reproduce the letter below in full:
October, 1881, I wrote a letter to
Minneapolis, Minnesota, asking for
information as to the varieties of
wheat used; raised and ground in
that State, famous thvooghout the
world for its wheat and superior flour.
The answers to my letter and ques
tions came back printed in the Far
mer's Union and Minneauolis Trib
une, dated Xovember .1, 1881, and
hereare a few extracts from the ans
wers, which may interest the farmers,
merchants and Millers of Oregon:
"In reply, we would say that our
.Minneapolis millers make their best
flour from a variety of wheat known
as the 'Scotch Life,' which is a hard,
red Spring wheat. In fact, it. is the
only va iety that can be used to
profit. Of al! the Spring varie
ties of wheat known in Mi'nne-
s ta, there is only one that is white,
which is the w hite Fife, an 1 that
originated near this city. Of its
merits we are not ad vised, from 1 he
fact that it is, comparatively speak
ing;, a new wheat. The Odessa, Lost
Xation, Siberian and Rio Grande are
all varieties, bnc none of them are
equal to the Scotch Fife in the pro
duct of flour of a superior quality.
It matters not whether Fall or Spring
wheat, the red is worth the most in
all our markets, an I brings more
money in' Chicago, Milwaukee, New
York and all markets than the white
varieties, because it makes better
flour and more of it. We should
ay, however, that this has not
always, hern so, but since the latter
improvements have been introduced
into our mills, the red varieties are
the favorites of all classes, the.
millers, the. consumers, I ha ware
houseman, the speculator, the baker,
and last though not least, our good
wives, who are always fond, as wall
as proud of, good, light, white, heal
thy bread. We would by all means
advise him as well ?s the farmers of
Oregon, to immediately introduce
the Scotch Fife. They will jirobably
find it superior to all other varieties,
and as we are pretty certain that
theNorthern Pauific Railroad will
be completed during the next three
or four years, they will find a ready
market for their wheat. We do not
know that it .would pay fto transport
wheat so far by rail to our Minneapo
lis mills, but it will pay. the enter
prising millers of- Oregon to trans
port flour madefrom Scotch Fife to
the remotest parts of the earth, as
our Minneapolis millers do to-day,
and thev. make money by doing, fio,
especially when the flour is-.iad.et'j

afford the Farmers' Union-jmd week
lyTrine much pleasure to forward
theriftferests ot the farmers of Ore
gon in every - particular in regard
to this all important matter of ra'rf
jng the best varieties of wheat.
I was induced to write a letter, to
which the above extracts are an an
swer in part, by the fact that some,
and Ido not know how many, of onr
Oregon warehousemen refuse to store
red wheat in tbjer warehouse; and be
cause some of onr Oregon miHers say
red wheat does not or will not make
good white flour, and because I have
been informed that our shippers will
not buy it at all, and because some of
our wheat raisers, who were probably
confined to corn bread in youth, assert
that red wheat cannot .make white
Acting partly in self-defense, and
feeling determined to expose what I
belived, aye, what I knew to be a fal
lacy, I-sent to headquarters for infor
mation, and the above extracts clinch
conclvsively One of the numerous fal
laeiesjwhich has gone for years all
most unquestioned in Oregon. Now,
there arc other pnestions to be an
swered at home in Oregon I mean.
There arc tbonsandsqf bushels of

poor flour made from it? NoSie of
onr millers grind poor or bud flour, or
if they do, they do not. sell or adver
What becomes of the poor or. in
ferior flour made from red wheat?
Are our mills and millers so antiqua
ted, so far behind the times in- skill
and "modern improvements," that
they cannot grind to an advantage
red wheat? Will they admit this?
If they will, let them explain what
becomes of the red wheat flour made
in their mills. Why do merchants
in Eastern markets prefer the wheat
rejected by our merchants here?
D. our exporters gauge English
millers and mills by those of Oregon?
If the mills of England are made to
grind to advantage the red wheats
of Minnesota, Daeotah, Manitoba,
Iowa, Wisconsin and Michigan, can
they not grind anil make as good
flour oit of red wheat raised in
Oregon? Can our exporters of
wheat explain wiiy the red vareties
of wheat from every nation under
the sun, except Oregon, find ready
sale and pass current in the markets
of England. There are localities in
Oregon and elsewhere where no
known or tried variety of white
wheat will succeed, and as the un
fortunate settlers in such places
strive honestly to live, and can make
fair crops of red wheat, it is but
fair that they should have an honest
m l honorable chance to do so, the
merchants, the millers and ware
housemen to the contrary notwith
standing. To this end and in their
behalf I respectfully submit the
question tayou, and hope the Guard
and its exchanges, interested in
agriculture, will give the matter a

What Tennessean could comment
upon the teKtiinony which discloses the
use of poisons in politics! " When we
find in Tennessee the methods Italians
used centuries ago, long abandoned in
all countries unless it be Turkey and
Abyssinia, words fail There is no
language developed iir which to ex
press abhorrence. Manhood sickens
and the very stomach of manhood turns
in disgust. If it were not too clearly
revealed it would staggar belief. When
it was whispered last winter we utterly
refused to credit it. The very truth
must be told. Tennessee has won the
dishonorable distinction of disclosing
in her politics the most damning blot
ever laid upon any State in this Union.
Let it rest where it belongs. The
party which taught Tennesseans to dis
regard the public faith, broke up all
ties of private faith and obligation, and
all respect for law, and made this thing
possible here possible nowhere else in
America, we hope. Let no injustice
be dong. , Niney-nine huhdredths of
members, .of the low-tax party are as
deeply filleiwi tli shame and scorn as
any of tkejWgoajSfi of Tennessee, and let
it be-coriflJhat this fatal principle
taught by,u'low-tax leaders did not
alone corrupt'themselves. It has surely
touched some of the weaker and worst
of all parties. It must be remembered
that this infernal principle of repudia
tion of public obligatioriaiid the ties
of public faith has so bV5gdovn all
obligations men owe t'q'-Sach other, to
the State' and to the. law, as to haji'e
made this possible. WHeri that is
said, let us remember that this is the
shame of us all, because it rests on
Tennessee until she redeems herself.
The thing now is to put an end forever
to this radical communism and to" ban
ish birds of evil from influence in Ten
nessee politics. Nashville American.

There was but one vote in the
Tennessee leg'slature against the
resolutions of respect and sorrow for
the character and tragic death of the
late President Garfield. It is hardly
necessary to explain that the nega

Cicero and Jesus Christ in a string
