TO TEST DRY FARMING

Of Ranchora
Experience Mat-
tor of Interest to' Everybody
Tl.
ih government oinciais in
charge of ijlie WarmspringH res
ervaiioii are making arrange
ments io conduct a dry farming
experiment station near, the
agenci , for ihe. purpose of mak
ing a thorough test of the vari
ous dry farming methods advo
cated throughout the semi-arid
legions of the West, and to de
termiue ihe best uiethod of con
serving the moisture, eo impor
tant to successful lamming in
f hi;- district, where the. rainfall
is deficient in many years. Iu
i his connection it may be stated
that Superintendent Covey and
Ins assistants a the Agency '
have been greatly iuteretjted in,
the "Campbell system"- of dry
laud farming, the principles of
which have been so successfully
followed iu other semi arid re
gions of the West. Mr. Coyey
has bought a Campbell subsur-
face packer, and will give the
Campbell methods a thorough"
trial at the experiment furm.
In connection with the exper- .
imeutal vyork, Mr. Covey has.
addressed letters to a number
of farmers in this section, mak- "
trig inquiries regarding methods ,
of cultivation, kind of crops and
general results obtained by .
them. This inf umatiou will be
of great advantage to them in
carrying on their experiments,
and it is urged that those who
receive these inquiries will feel
sufScieut interest to send a
prompt reply. The experimen
tal dry land farm at the Agency
will be of great benefit to all the
aimers of this locality, as a
lemonstration of what can be
iccompli8jied by the so-called
'scientific sou culture" in -this
section for the land at the
Agency to be employed for
the purpose is practically
identical with that of the high
plateau lands ot this region.
uid the, conditions us to climate
i ud rain fa I are the same. Iu
lis letter, Mr. Covey states that
hey will be glad to iurnisli
luv one desiring it information
regarding the results of their
experiments at any time.
FILING ON CASCADE WATER POWER
A press dispatoh from Eu
gene says: b. v . uurtis, ot San
Francisco, who during the past
wo years has made numerous
lings on water power sites on
several different streams in
Western Oregon, including the
MoKenzie, the Willamette and
the Sautlam Rivers, ha filed
with the clerk of Lane County.
i notice of appropiiation of 13,-
000 inches of the waters of Odell
Lake, in the eastern end of Lane
C unity. He has located a di
al to extend several miles west'
and flow int Salt Creek.
It is thought Curtis is work-
ng lor tue boutmug racuic
Company, which had several
crews of surveyors in that viciu-
ty during the past year ascer
aiiiing the amount of power to
)e developed from the different
streams, with a view probably
to utilizing it some day in the
operation of trains over the
mountains when the proposed
no lrom JNutrou into Eastern
Oregon is built.
