The Farm Bureau Is an organization
fif fn 'trier of the Nation having for Its
purpose the betterment of rural con
umous, aiming particularly to make
farming more profitable. It is the
latest attempt at getting the farmers
together for their own benefit and
built on the experience of other sim
ilar organizations of the past. It now
has th ('National organization, the
American Farm Bureau Federation,
made up of the various State federa
tions, and they in turn of the County
Bureaus, which are built on the com
munity organizations, the foundation
of which is the individual farmer
members. Thus the success of the
whole plan depends on what the In
dividual farmer does.

Meeting to Be Held at Eddy
ville; Co-operative Plan of
Predatory Animal Eradication
to Be Urged.
Considerable publicity has been
given to the necessity for eradicating
the predatory animals from the goat
and sheep ranges of Lincoln County It
we are to maintain the Industry. The
past bounty system aud hunting meth
ods employed in the county have prov
en themselves unequal to the occasion
and in keeping with the same methods
employed elsewhere, the assistance
of the Predatory Animal Department
of the U. S. Department of Agricul
ture, has been enlisted.
Government hunters, Williams and
Jackson, arrived in the County the
first of the month and have been study
ing the coyote situation particularly
since that time. They have become
much Interested In the damage done
by bear, and participated In a bear
hunt at Nashville last week on which
occasion Mr. Stokes of Toledo was the
lucky party member and bagged the
Mr. Wiiliams advises that the coyote
and bear situation can be handled io
a much better advantage by the use
of traps than by hunting, and it is
probable that his recommendations at
the giat and sheep meeting to be held
at Eddyvillo the afternoon of Fri
day the 14th will be along this lino.
It Is probable that financial assis
tance and supervision of the work will
be offered by the predatory animal
department, but In order to prosecute
the work it is likely that additional
funds will be necessary from Lincoln
County, and the Lincoln County Coyote

A good pasture mixture for western
Oregon well-drained lands as recom

of 6 pounds of English rye grass, 3
pounds orchard grass, 3 pounds Ken
tucky blue grass, 3 pounds meadow
fescue. 2 pounds timothy, 3 pounds red
clover or spineless bur clover, and 1
pound white clover.
From 18 to 20 pounds of the mixture
should be seeded per acre If the seed
1s of good quality. This will usually
be 140 to 150 live seeds per square
foot, If the seed Is good.

were secured from the Forage Crop
Investigations, Bureau of Plant In
dustry. "Ladlno or giant white clover Is a
very large form of the common white
clover so abundant In bluegrass pas
tures and lawns throughout the Unit
ed States. In every respect the La
dlno clover Is similar to the ordinary
white clover except that In favorable
locations it grows 10 to 20 inches high
and is two to four times larger In all
Its parts. Extended culture of the
crop has been limited by the fact that
it seeds very sparingly In the eastern.

those territories where reactors were
