and 'assistance . at his command,
has been working . on this same
problem, and' has only been par
tially successful, for ' up to this
time his new, breed 'of large
while fowl with red ear-lobes,
and which derive ther name from
his own name "Lamonas", still
persist in occasionally producing
Individuals that lay brown, eggs,
and therefore the new breed haa

Other great poultrymen have
long been ' working along i the
same line, without signal success.
But In the meantime a resource
ful Oregon 'poultryman of small
means and experience and with
out assistance hai - accomplished
that for which the others have
long unsuccessfully striven and
found so difficult ; that it ; has
been pretty generally considered
among the impossibilities. 4

cance in the above from Mr: Con
ner th'aji wll appear at first
glance 'to the man who is not up
to all the. curves in the poultry
world. The experienced breeders
however, will catch the sirnifi
cance of It without any prompt
ing for they know ' this is the
reaching of the goal in a quest
that has been ages long and
world wide; and if this Salem
district breecer could cash in on
tne beneuts that will accrweito
the coming generation in all
countries from his discovery and
development, he would be richer
than Rockefeller or Henry Ford
, All the Asiatic and English
and American fowls from time
Immemorial have" laid brown
shelled . eggs. The . Brahmas
uocnins, xangsnans. etc., are
types ot Asiatic breeds: The
Dorkings and Orpingtons are
types of the English breeds. The
Hocks, and Reds and Wyandottes
are- types of the American
breeds. All these and their cous
ins have always xaid orown eggs
Brown eggs are all right In Bos
ton; they are preferred there-.
But every other large market,
including that ! or Greater New
York, calls for white shelled eggs
The Mediterranean" fowls '"lay
white shelled eggs. The types
are tho Leghorns, Minorcas
Anconas, Spanish .etc.
So the true utility fowl, fo!
which the wide world has been
waiting, must be heavy, to pro
duce the largest possible amount
of meat, and it must lay a white
egg. That Is what Mr. Buley has
accomplished. Ho has conferred
a great boon on the poultry world
The first 300-egg hen, produced
in the Salem district, was the
"Dryden" hen at Oregon Agricnl
tural college, accomplishing this
feat several years ago. She was
of the Oregon" breed. Since that
time '33 "Oregon hens at the
Oregon asylum for the insane, at
Salem, have become 300-egg hens
Nearly every leading poultry
breeder In the Salem district has
produced '300-egg hens; and a
number of breeders In, the Puget
Sound district have .produced such
bens. One Salem district hen has
laid 335 eggs, In one year and
the 365 egg hen is in sight for the
Salem district; with an extra'one
for leap year. By every test, we
have the best poultry country in
the world; and we are developing
the best race of poultry breeders
on earth. Ed.) .

Editor! Statesman:; !
Before locating In Oregon I for
myself,' and the men' with whom
I was associated, made careful in
vestigations of the nrinciDdl fruit
producing sections of the United
States, and especially Colorado,
Idaho. I - Washington and ' Califor
nia. We thorouhly satisfied our
selves j that there ' was no place
where i soil, climate and market
conditions were more , favorable
than the 'Willamette valley in Or
egon,- and that there was no ques
tion but that, all things consider
ed, land 'values nere were much
lower than lands of similar grade
in the districts and state3 which
we investigated. Later and con
tinued observation has more
thoroughly convinced me of that
fact. " l
i The opportunities which i have
had. during the pat. years, to In
vestigate and know the ' returns
from several hundred farm, . or
chard and berry tracts in the Wil
lamette valley give undisputed
evidence that from a money in
come standpoint, that taken as a
whole, our lands are not over
valued. - - ,:
These investigations and farm
income reports do reveal, how
ever, a few things which should
not be passed over. There are
many farmers who are not keep
ing sufficient dairy and other live
stock to maintain the fertility of
their farms, and are, in fact, de
creasing the fertility by continu
ous grain crop and summer fallow
methods. There, are . others who
are raising grain on land which
would produce a much greater re
turn in . fruiti v nuts or berries.
There are still others who are try
ing to raise fruit, nuts and ber
ries on land more suitable foi
general farming . purposes. .
We have such a wide diversity
of soil and soil conditions in the
Willamette', valley that we can
grow almost any farm cron. fruit.
nuts, berries or vegetabliss, but
there have been mistakes which
ought not to be repeated, and the

The Purchases of T w dJ
Brothers, in Salem District
Several years ago a Nebraska
man located In the Liberty dis
trict," purchasing a 30-acre prune
orchard belonging to a man
named Lowndes. It was all In
prunes, all bearing; with a drier
and cottage and outbuildings just
tour miles from the banks in Sa
lem, on' a beautiful scenic site,
with good roads hard surfaced
and rock road.. The ttrlco - via
$15,500. His brother came out
i'to locate on the coast and visited
mm; went on to the Santa Clara
valley, California, and bought 43
acres of an- orchard near San
Jose: half in prunes, 10 acres' of
apricots and 10 In other fruits.
at a cost of.$80,00Q. It was un
der irrigation, however; Notwith
standing, it Impressed me'that he
was -foolish to pay so much more.
even on the basis that it would
produce, more heavily.
I talked with "the owner of the
30-acre place here yesterday, and
inquired of, him what great ad
vantage did his brother have for
the difference in investment? H3
said climate. I admit it is not a
fair criterion to judge the aver
age returns covering a number
of years from the last year's
crop, but the .facts are that the
California brother had no great
er yield I of prunes than the Lib
erty prune grower last -ar. An
Oregon man could afford to pay
well for the climate out of six
per cent of the difference in cot
of the two . orchards, or even
doubling I the returns from the
Santa Clara orchard still live in
the California climate from the
interest on the difference in the
original investment, x ,
And Oregon would: have the
best of ' it In climate for several
.months other than' the winter
months besides. Many would
claim Oregon would have the best
of it clinialically all the year
round, but I want to be reason
able. Personally I have the im
pression" that the Oregon brother
has the. best of it in his invest
