Southern Wasco Is
For Bulk Handling
Farmers' XTnion Oaes - Saoord In

Md Backing" and leading Expense.
Friend, Or., May 13. It has leaked
oui that the last meeting of the
Farmer; union at Kingsley was of
more than ordinary interest, the action
affecting a considerable part of the
grain district of southern Wasco
county. The report Is that action was
taken looking to the erection and
operation of grain elevators for han
dling in bulk the coming crop of the
southern part of Wasco county, the In
tention being to erect plants at Dufur,
Friend and other places. Elevators
are already under way at Boyd ami
At a conservative estimate it is
figured that the bulk system will
eliminate the use of 400,000 Jute bags,
approximating at the present high
prices asked for bags, 150.000. There
will also be a big saving in labor for
sacking and loading.
