BASIS TO BE SCIENTIFIC
Cooperation Expected Between
Growing and marketing of
Products Which State Raises.
By J. F. I.angnrr
At this wrltlna; there Is a strong
probability that the legislature will ever
ate the office of a state market director.
If this be bo there will have been no
more constructive a piece of legisla
tion enacted at the present session.
The Oreeron bill is modeled on precisely
similar lines to the California act.
which, under the direction of Colonel
Welnetoek. has been the unquestion
able means of pulling- the California
farmers from moral and actual bank
ruptcy to a degree of affluence which
was undreamed of at the time the Cali
fornia act waa passed in 1915.
Duties Are Tarled
The duties of the state market director
are many and varied and If he can ac
complish one half of which it is pre
sumed he will attempt to accomplish,
Oregon products will be known from
coast to coast.
And more, the farmers of this 6tate
will be forever released from the spec
ulator in Oregon food products, as it
will be undoubtedly one of the first
duties of the state market director to
help organize the farmers into efficient
cooperative marketing- associations,
eliminating unnecessary middlemen and
actually bringing the farmer Into direct
touch with the legitimate jobber and
aisirioutor.
Will Collect Data
The market director has superimposed
upon him the duty of collecting and
disseminating Information regarding
possible markets at the. world's primary
market points; it is his duty to inform
the producers of the best manner to
reach this market. It Is his duty to help
them create a demand for their par
ticular product at the best price ; It is
his duty to help the producers through
their products, put Oregon on the map
as a producing state.
The market director will have oppor
tunity of doing more direct good for
the people of the state of Oregon- than
any one other individual at the present
time because by doing all these things
which are called for in the market act
he "will create a national interest in the
state which la lacking at the present
time.
Pat on Scientific Basis
When Oregon products are properly
marketed, the people of the United
States will begin to realize that here 1s
a state in which everything of the best
grows to perfection where It Is good
to Come and live where it Is possible
nt only to grow the best but also pos
sible to market on as scientific a basis
as does California.
It means that money will pour In a
golden rain and people will flock to
this state in the same proportion that
they flock to California today. It is
solely and entirely due to the efforts
of the state market director of Cali
fornia and perhaps also to tfie close
cooperation with htm of practically all
the people of the state that California
is known for what It Is today.
Oregon, with all the amenities of
California and more is only a little
backward -or modest in telling the
world what it has to sell and going out
after the dollars that are ready for the
farmers and people of this state.
With a good state market director we
can confidently hope to see this state
take Its proper place the front rank in i
producing and marketing the best there
h in the Jand.
Dogs Bring Complaints
The enactment of more adequate state
laws to control - aheep killing dogs is
urged by Secretary Houston in a letter
Kit sent to the governors In 20 states,
e secretary points out that although
there has been gratifying increase In
the number of sheep In the United States
In the past year there Is room for further
expansion of the industry.

Crop Binding Kills
Many Fowls; Cause
Is Muscle Debility,
Crop binding is the forerunner of
death in maijy fowls, and is due to
the consumption of indigestible matter,
such as the husk of grain, grass devoid
of succulence and other tough . sub
stances. Or it may be due to stoppage
in the mouth of the passage leading from
the crop to the gizzard, such a passage
being known as the glandular stomach.
Generally speaking, however, crop-binding
is i?ue' to muscular debility, the or
gan being too weak to propel the food
on to the other digestive organa. If the
liver or bowels fall to properly perform
their functions the body of the fowl be
comes starved and weakened through
lack of nourishment, and the result Is
muscular debilitation.

Dairying State's Big Farm Industry
That the dairy industry i3 the largest

Dairymen's league, stated tiat there are
23,000 dairy farms in Oregon, employing
approximately 46,000 men. There are
91 creameries In the state, 78 cheese
factories and a total of over 500 em
ployes in these factories;
THEY "TOP" THE MARKETS, TOO!
The first full load of steers not fitted to show to sell for 20 a
hundredweight on the open market were Aberdeen-Angus, sola
at Chicago, December 2. Other Aberdeen-Angus steers set new
open market records at 119.60, $19.75 and lower points earlier ;

Leasing, of Bulls Is
Pound Profitable
When Market Dull
One breeder of high-class dairy cat
tle has found It profitable to lease bulls
from his herd. Zt happened that there
had been a slight depression in the con
dition of vhis business. He found his
farm too over-supplied with young bulls
of very good quality. There was no sale
for them at their actual value as breed
ers. He at first considered sending them
to the butcher. Instead, he offered to
lease them free to a number of farmers
who ownea grade herds. The agreement
was such that the bulls should be re
turned to the owner whenever the farm
ers should be through with them.
The results of this experiment were
very satisfactory The bulls were re
turned after one or two years very much
larger and consequently worth more at
tne butcher's. The farmers had enjoyed
the privilege of breeding their cows to
a very high-class bull with no expense
attached thereto except feeding and
keeping the bulL The farmers, appre
ciated this and most of them resolved
to never again use anytslng except a
pure-bred. Holsteln-Frtesian Register.
Sucking and Biting
Insects Harm Fruit
Broadly speaking, all Insects which
are a menace to fruit - growers secure
their feed In one of two ways : By biting
and swallowing portions of the food ma
terial, or by sucking the Juices from t)i
interior portion of the host. All biUnt
insects are subject to destruction win
arsenlcals or otier stomach poison
Bucking Insects are controlled by tlx
use of contact sprays, which corrode th
body or penetrate the breathing portion!
of the pest or otherwise effect their de
struction. .
- Cows Make Good Record
-. William Barnes of Pine Valle:
has four cows.' that are makln;
a very good record. the re
turns from their cream checks amount
ing to $392 in a little over 10 months, be
sides the milk, cream and butter usm
by a large family.
