COST OF UMATILLA COUNTY WHEAT CROP
Questioned this morning hy tho
East Oregoniati, as to tho average
cost of raising a bushel of wheat In
Umatilla county, E. W. McComas,
local muungur for the Northwest
Warehouse Company, took tho aver
ago farm of 100 acres and a 25-bushel
yield for a starting point, and con
cluded that it Is 32 cents and 4 mills
Taking this figure for an average,
21 to 22 cents Is sometimes found as
the cost, where the farmer Is excep
tionally located as to richness' of
laud and contlguousuess to market,
and perhaps other more than usual
ly favorable circumstances intervene
to lessen the cost.
On the other hand, a frost, a local
dearth of rain, distance from mar
ket, or some other factor may inter
fere that the farmer cannot reap the
full benefit or average conditions,
and the cost of reproduction may
reach from 3D to 38 cents.
But on the average farm 10 miles
from market, the schedule of expense
may be considered to bo covered by
the following estimates of the cost
per acre the labor bolng practically

(one and a quarter bushels of grain

tive that the average big rancher has
to pay almost exactly the same as the
sman farmer, because he must hire
all his labor, or practically all of It
The "natural" difference ought to
be about 15 per cent in favor of the
large rancher, hut It does not exist In
