As McCormlck was the original inventor of the reaper and head
er, so was "Best" the original inventor of the first successful Com
bined Harvester.
We wish to call the attention of our friends vh eontomplute
purchasing a Slde-HM Combined Harvester the coming season, that
we are still in the lead in the way of Improvements iu harvesting
machinery, and which our farmer friends have rightfully named th
"KING OF THE HELD." After watching its work in the field tn
past sixteen years, and for the season of 1903 It will be stnl better,
as we have made a number of valuable Improvements.
The MACHINE Is the stroneat and most durable made.
IMPROVED DRIVE WHEELS 5 feet 4 inches high. 22 inch tire.
RUNAWAYS are a rare thing with us. There Is a brake- on
main drive wheel, which Is controlled by the driver.
HEADER Is driven independently from the grain wheel of sep
arator, ai$l is arranged with a clutch for throwing in and out of gear
when turning corners.
THE SEPARATOR We wish to call your attention particularly
to the separating qualities of our rnachlue. We claim that no other
combined harvester on the market can In any way compare with It
for speed and thofcughness of work, In all k nds and conditions of
tiraln, andswlll require less team to operate It.
AUTOItfAtlC GOVERNOR Our patent wind governor on the
fans governs the blast so that at any speed at which the harvester
may bo traveling, tho wind Is automatically regulated and prevents
clogging the shoo and carrying the grnin ovor In the strnw.
We take pleasure in Inviting you to call on Temple A. Wilcox,
-. PeTdleton. and make a personal Inspection of each and every part of
'our machines before placing your ordors. Every machine warrant
eu to do all wo claim for It and to bo first-class in every respect.

R. F. Johnson, of Weston, Writes of
His Visit on the Lower Columbia
Is Very Thankful That His Home Is
In Eastern Oregon.
Wnshougal, April 22. (Editor East
Oregonlnn.) My present visit to
Webfoot after 23 years' nbsuncc,
seems almost like a dream; whore
ever I go. I am struck by tho mm y
great and sometimes wonderful
changes made both In tho cities and
the country. So great aro the changes
here that I havo concluded to send
nrter my wife, so that she also may
enjoy the sights,
I sometimes feel like pinching mV
self to find nut If I am really awake
or walking nbout In my sleep.
My arrival at Portland at first al
most caused me to wish myself at
once back again in the happy nnd
peaceful city of Weston. This feeling
was simply tho direct result from
finding myself lost In a strungo city,
where everything and everybody was
flying around at a high rate of speed,
lesombllng a lire brigade running to
a fire, the whole thing seemed to mo
very much like a hundred swarms or
bees all mixed up and nil swarming
at once, and to mo there did not
seem to be any regularity to any
thing at all, and I doubted very much
it' anybody knew where they wore
going or from whence thoy came.
And then there were all those multi
plying and Increasing number of
electric street cars continually clang
ing nnd banging with their bells and
running In nil directions, and on all
sides of a fellow just like some ond
leas chain. Aded to this babel nnd
confusion wore hundreds of teams,
tiansfers, delivery wagons, etc. etc.
Portland of 1880 and Portland of
1903, I found to be about as much
allko as a gopher hill resembles Mt.
Hood. The four bridges across the
Willamette river was a revelation to
mo worth looking at. I also found
that ulectrle cars aro now both run
ning to Oregon City and to Vancouver
In Washington.
One day I wended my way up to
the gieat Marquam building and de
siring to call at the supreme ollice of
the Order or Washington, I had tho
pleasure of entering the elevator and
of being hoisted almost halt way up
to heaven, where I found tho said of
fice to be located at loom No. (Slfi.
Once there 1 soon felt again at homo
with Mr. Morehead. formerly of Pendleton.
My next move was a trip down tho
Columbia river via steamer to As
toria, lieie again a great surprise
awaited me upon my arrival. Improve
ments and growth of that city was
tu me simply astonishing. The city
now reaches all the way from Smith's
Point up to Tongue Point, a distance
or several miles. Like Portland, As
toria also has its electric street cars,
though ,of course. In a lesser number,
hut Astoria also Is chock full or bus
iness and great preparations were be
ing made for the fishing industry
which started in on April 15. Hut
while gill nets are yet used In fishing
to a great extent, still I found that
tho bulk of salmon are now caught
with seines. Five cents per pound is
now paid for the salmon by tho can
neries and the fishermen hnve to fur
nish their own gear or hlie them,
that is, boats and nets, hut tho solnes
and the men who operate them aro
paid wages which ranges from $2 per
day and up Including board, but tho
bosses receive all the way from $r0
to $100 per month.
At the present time the river Is full
of salmon nnd smelt.
I had the pleasure the other day
at Washougal, 10 miles east of Port
land, to see a lot or men catching
smelts with dip nets and the dip nets
would bo so full or smelts that it ro
quired the united strength of two men
to lift them out of the water. Two
men caught 1G sacks of smelts In less
than an hour.
Wnshougal, whore I lived 23 years
ago, Is also wonderfully improved
und is now quite a city and boasts of
two now hotels, two saloons, three
largo stores ,one blncksmlth shop, one
barber shop, etc. A large creamory
Is also established here. Whllo in
1880 there was only ono small' store,
one saloon and tho wharf.
The country hereabouts (where 1
used to live) I also found to have
greatly advanced, but it Is very bard
work, however, to clear up the land
here for tnrmlng. There aro two
lines of industry hero .upon which
the rancher dopends for his living,
and ovory ono of them have their
acres . that Is, as fast as they can bo
cleared, seeded In with timothy and
red clover for his cows, and once or
twice a week ho hauls his cream to
the Wnshougal creamery. During tho
month of March ho received 32ViC
per pound for his butter fat, but from
now on through the summer be will
not recolvo nearly as much as tho
price of butter Is fast declining.
In addition to the cream business
many of tho ranchors here havo largo
prune orchards and fruit driers nnd
so far dried prunes havo sold readily
for three cents a pound. I am told
that a fow ranchers hero havo some
years mado as much as $1000 to $2000
on their prunes, but whether tills
prune business will not, soonor or
latov, bo overdone romnlns to bo
Now, In conclusion, I will sny that
while my visit hero has been vory In
teresting nnd pleasant In a certain
sense, yet, I am very thankful that

Tho othor day as I was gliding over
tho waters ot tho Columbia river, I
thought that after all tho greater por
