Sketches Hulcm Work.
The Importance of the work of the
county agriculturalist, tho necessity
for diversion and rotation of crops,
and the value of the potato as a
prosperity getter, were emphasized
this noon when C. h. Smith, agri
culturalist for the O.-W. II. & N
spoke before tha Bend Commercial
club at the regular weekly luncheon
at the Wright hotel.
Mr. Smith traced the growth of
tho country agriculturalist system
from Us beginning- In the cotton
slates of the Bouth, up to the pres
ent time, and declared that the co
operation given by the railroads in
tho northwest, was considered one
of the best investments ever made,
In securing additional produce for
I'lilnlH Farm Importance.
As a particular message to the
merchants of Bend, Mr. Smith de
clared for his basic statement that
a!l business originates on the farm,
and with the man who tills tho soli.
"You business men merely trade on
what the farmer produces," he de
clared, "and you should be Inter
ested In how he uses his land and

to the county agriculturalist system

tional dlBgrace, If effective."
