LAND IN THE Y1LLAMETTE VALLEY -
NEDS IRRIGATION IN THE DRY YEARS
And fc.F Fnm- - A Se A,t to Am TeU
hire May Be "You Can Bet Your Bottom Dollar" on This, Says Prof. Bouquet
(The article below is being printed
in the Pacific Homestead, the farm
paper published from the Statesman
building, in this week's issue. It is
by Prof. A. G .B. Bouquet, of the
Oregon Agricultural College, who is
editor of the Garden Department of
the Homestead. Of course, the ar
ticle was written before the abundant
rains of this week. But it is timely
nevertheless, and it will do a lot of
rood in future years. We did not get
our ''usual June rains" last year or
the vear before, nor enough ot them
the year before that. We do get them
In most years. Brit we may not get
them next year. The forehanded
farmer and gardener in the Salem
section is going to make sure ot his
rrtm. not nearly every year, but
verv year. He cannot do this with
"not nrovidine himself with some kind
of an irrigation system. This is
worth its price, if regarded only in
the light of insurance. All prudent
owners of building Insure; all
thrifty men Insure their lives; and
ait such men will Insure their crops.

. to the ''grounds here," means the
Agricultural college grounds.

Irrigate That Farm Garden.
In this section, at least, there Is
every indication that the usual
amount of moisture in the soil will
be depleted much earlier than usual
There is one portion of the farm
that will give good return for the
irrigation ot the same and that is
the vegetable area. On most farms
there is a supply ot water in suffi
cient amount so that a portion of it
could be profitably used on some ot
the more important vegetables such
as cabbage, tomatoes, onions, lettuce,
sweet corn, beans, and other truck
that may be growing In a fenced-in
piece ot ground near the water
tower. All of these crops will give
big returns for even one irrigation

An Important thing to be cared for
is to see that the water Is confined
to the furrows In which It Is sup-
nosed to travel. The slope of the
ground should be such to give Just
a slight fall tor the water. Any
slopping over the sides ot the fur
rows will cause a lot ot extra work
later on In cultivating.

To a very great extent the success
