Willamette valley, cucumbers are
becoming one of the main cash
crops far some of the farmers. It
Is possible to take in a gross re
turn of about 1200 per acre. Us
ually about' half of this or slightly
less than half Is paid out for pick
ing. This leaves the grower about
1100 to i distribute among fertil
isers, labor. Irrigation and profit.
Taking put f 30 for Irrigation and
fertilizers and allowing $20 for
rent of land, this leaves the grow
er $5Q that he can consider his
own providing that he did his own
work. .
Other Benefits
There are other advantages, of
eaursefrpm growing this crop,
other, than the profit derived. The
crop following afterthe use of
commercial fertilizers and cultiva
tion necessary to the production of
cucumbers usually' receives the
lienefit of part of the soil elements
made available during the summer
months. .' This Is true,' hiwever,
other- words, cucumbers can be
fitted into the crop rotation of
most any Willamette valley farm
pn& pay a profit, j providing , that
the soil conditions are right and
that they are handled properly.

production of a high quality cu
KumJer that wlli,make u good
pk-Jde- . The growth' will be more
uniform ' throughout the entire
summer where water is applied
than where the plants suffer for
the, lack of moisture due to the
Higli irate of evaporation at cer
tf sin times. There are drawbacks
to the use of irrigation, especially
foe overhead spray system. The
wWter tried both systems last year
and vhad considerable mildew with
the overhead system. This is not
condemning this system of irriga
tion; AowVver, as it certainly has
some distiuf-t advantages. It is
possible that his .mildew might be
controlled with the use of sulphuf

The Right Fertilizer
In our plantings last year, we
treated all of the seed with a mer
curic disinfectant known by; the
trade name as "Semesan." While
this was not used in an experimen
tal way and check plots tried on
untreated seed, we feel 'that it
was well worth the trouble and
expense, as we obtained nearly a
one hundred per cent stand.
In purchasing fertilizers it is
necessary to pick those that fur
nish to the soil elements in which
your soil is deficient. It would
not be policy to use a fertilizer
high in nitrates on a beaver dam
soil, as cucumbers grown in this
soil have too much leaf for growth
due to the high nitrogen content
of this soil type. Fertilizers should
be applied early enough in the
spring so that the rains will take
the plant food into solution. In
recommending .commercial ferti
lizers do" not think that we do not
believe in the use of barnyard
manures where available.
Planting time usually ranges
from the first to the tenth of
June. It a possible to plant later
and obtain a good yield, providing
the fall weather conditions are fa
vorable. In summing up the cu
cumber situation as it appears to
us, it can be considered as a quick
growing cash crop, that will pay
a fair projfit with an expense out

other vegetable plants for the
trade. Then he became an exten

Portland market. Mr. Bagley has
been active in the operations since

cumbers and tomatoes under glass..
They have four acres under the

Many Troubles
There are many troubles in
growing cucumbers and tomatoes,
or any other vegetable, under
glass. It is an eternal battle with
bugs; a war on pests. The grow
er in the open has pests, but the
producer of things under glass has
about ten times as many. There
are all the kinds the experts ever
heard of, and some besides. Some
they do not yet know how to con
trol. And there is great competi
tion, from other greenhouse grow
ers, and from the growers on the
outside in California and Mexico.
Leaf lettuce grown under glass
has 'been out of the running for a
long time, i people want head let,
tuce. The competition in toma
toes is growing stronger all the
time. But the tomato produced
under glass is sa superior article,
and so is the cucumber That is,
if ' you 1 know how to produce it.
And this is no bed of roses. It Is
matter, of everlasting work and
trouble, and experimenting. ;

Failure to notify attorneys for
the respondent that they were go

In the opinion of the court writ

an act passed by the last legisla

three days' notice that application
is to be made for an extension of

Credit for Efficient Service
; Given Local Men by Falls
City Folk
FALLS CITY, July 6 (Spe

day for Dr. E. L- Brunk and Dr.
B. F. Pound, dentists of Salem,
as well as a large number of the
children of Falls City. Mrs.
Frances Speerstra. retiring presi
dent of the local Parent-Teachers
association, and one of the teach
ers in the local schools.
S. Promptly at nine o'clock in the
morning the two men arrived from
Salem with field equipment, set
up their chairs and prepared for
the aching teeth. They cared for
24 pupils of the grade school, and
for lick of time (though they
stayed until almost 6 o'clock in
the evening) a number who were
waiting had to be turned away
without attention.
Extracting 53 teeth, filling 22,
cleaning one full set of teeth, and
examining a number of others and
outlining the care needed, stopping
to sterilize instruments. etc.,
means a busy day. Electricity was
available for sterilizing instru
ments, hot water there in abund
ance, thanks to the thoughtfulness
of Mrs. Speerstra and Mrs. 11.
Mather Smith, chairman of the
committee arranging for this day.
It is hoped arrangements can
be made to take the children most
in need of dental care, and whose
parents cannot take them to one
of the dentists in Dallas, who has
kindly offered his services through
Drs. Brunk and Pound and when
Mrs. Smith has plans completed

clinic of the Marion county Child
health demonstration. He and Dr.
Pound came to Falls City as vol
unteer workers, receiving no com
pensation for the work done, and
asking none, one fee of $1.00 was
paid them by a small boy who
would not have the work done
without and this dollar ,waa hand

Parent-Teacher association, so will
help some child go to Dallas or
Salem to receive care.
The president of the Parent
Teachers association, Mrs. Speer
stra the past president, Mrs. Smith,
chairman of the committee in
charge, and the patrons of School
District No. 57, acknowledge with

work done by public health work
ers of all kinds.
Dr. Brunk and Dr. Pound have
promised to meet with the local
P. T. A. at an early date in the
fall, probably at the first meeting,
and Dr. Brunk will bring motion
pictures showing work being done
in other places, the necessity
for dental surgery, and will tell
of the plans bf the State dental as
sociation for forming divisional
centers of groups of counties for
carrying on this work.

Niece of Fred Stone to Ap
pear in Salem on Chautau
qua Program
Lucille Elmore, who comes to
Chautauqua this year as the head
of the Lucille Elmore Revue issa
niece of Fred Stone. She received
her theatrical training as a mem
ber of the famous cast of "Step
ping Stones" whfch packed the
Gaiety theater in New York City
to standing room to the doors for
months and months. Like Fred
Stone and his famous daughter,
Dorothy, Miss Elmore believes It
is possible to give a revue with
out appealing to sensational
means. She believes in a clean
theater and it was for this reason
that the management of the big
Ellison-White circuit spent months
persuading her to head the com
pany which Is to be a feature of
this Vear's program.
' The revue to be given at Chau
tauqua is not a big flashing sort
of a revue, but a little intimate
delightful one. raore of the type
that Chariot's Revue from London
made famous in New York a cou
ple of season's ago. It depends on
its cleverness and the beauty of
its program for Us success rather
than on size and tiyingto shcok
its andience. ,
Miss Elmoro, herself, is a dain
ty Utile comedienne, vho gives all
soits of interpretations, "viperson
r'ions, stunts and surprises. She
fo.iows.out th1 typicaPrevue char
acreristics in not relating any two
of her appearances to each other,
but striving to make each more
delightful than the last. In many
ways she reminds one of" Chick
Sale and his interpretations which
have taken the New York audi
ences by storm.
In addition to Miss Elmbre. spe
cial mention ; should be made of
Jean Harper, la Ned Way burn dan
cer, who gives a serifs of interpre
tations which, wh'le properly
known as dancing are in no sense
reminiscent of . the dances which
have scandalized the theater going
public. They are interpretations
strictly in keeping with Chautau
qua ideas and ideals.
Another member of the company
who will not soon be forgotten :si
Stewart Churchill, the wizard of
the marimbaphone. Churchill car
ries several trunks of marimbas
and when he! gets his big instru
ment set upon the stage there is
room for little else. Moreover, he
plays it with rare skill and lewil
dering speed, coaxing out tones
and effects that most people don't
know are possible on this unusual
instrument. ,,The other members
of the cast are all accomplished
and the whole revue is an utterly
delightful attraction.

"Something is wrong at Gen

Either the Americans or the Eng

some observers feel that it will je
veal to the world that a great Anglo-American
tragedy ,has been

this that Great' Britain, which
has held the mastery of the seas
for centuries, intends to maintain
this mastery, and can-seV neither
justice-nor wisdom of a youthful
nation across the seas, the United

equalling those of Great Britain.
Great Britain contends that a

of her food supplies' at' distant
