While there are other resources,
wheat is- the main resource from
wlilili Helix draws her trade. The
shipments from Helix will foot up
from 375,00 to 400.000 bushels of
wheat annually. John Tlmbernian is
regarded as the largest Individual
wheatralser In the community. There
nre companies and members of one
family raising wheat together that
raise more wheat, but Tlmbernian
has been raising wheat alone, on his
own land and on leased land. It is
estimated that he raised 27.000 bush
els this year. There are many wheat
raisers at this point, however, who
raise more than 10.000 bushels annu
ally and many of the larger concerns
raise over 30.00 bushels annually
John P. MeEachern. representing Bal
four. Guthrie & Co.. of Portland, sold
220.000 wheat sacks this year, and
they were all used. Each sack holds
two and a quarter bushels and this
would make over 500,000 bushels,
Some of these sacks were sold to
nheatralsers who ship from nearby
warehouses on railroad, but still
there were others engaged in selling
sacks and the shipments ftom Helix
would be difficult to estimate from
this standpoint, but the warehouse re
ceipts run the number up into the
hundreds of thousands and there are
individual shipments besides.
Balfour, Guthrie & Co., represented
y John P. MeEachern, have two
warehouses at this point and the
Puget Sound Warehouse Co., repre
setited by A. B. Montgomery, also
have two warehouses. The latters
houses are located near the depot and
one is 550xto feet and the other is
130x30 feet. This concern 1ms been
established at Helix three years and
ships annually about 175.000 bushels
of grain. The Balfour, Guthrie Co.'s
warehouses are respectively 235x50.
and 20iixoC teet. The company ban
dies annually about 18S.00O bushels
of wheat. This company has been es
lauiisiieti here about five years. It
also has a warehouse at Vansycle,
near tins place, 225.X0O feet and han
dies about 130,000 bushels annually.
it is represented at Vansycle by Wll

a warehouse at Grandview 1-10x40 and
handles about 30,000 bushels of grain
annually. i nomas uobertson repre

a warehouse at Hillsdale 140x40 feet.
J. C. Burke Is agent and handles
about 30,000 bushels annually.
