MORE ABOUT BENTON.
The Pacific Homestead, pub
lished at Salem, has a "hustler"
in Benton county who has un
earthed many things of interest
to all. By observation, the do
ings of others can often be turned
to advantage by men of any walk
in life. The Homestead has the
The Homestead hustler started
out toward Benton county again
last week. On his road to Cor-
vallis, the first stop was made at
Granger postoffice, about five
miles from' that city. He found
A. F. Luther near there who
wants the Homestead to
wheat growers a lift. He
the stockmen are all rig;ht
there is some money yet in
wheat, for the industrious farmer
who will stick to business, and
not do his farming by answering
the doorbell for social calls in
some town. The wheat grower
mav not cet rich in a day, but
he can make money by hardl
work. Ten years ago Mr. Luth
er was working for wages; now
he owns his farm of 24.0 acres
and has paid for it by raising
wheat. He has hauled wood
and done other work while his
wheat was growing, and he has
not been idle at any time. The
Homestead hustler found him
on the toD of a load of wood
which he was hauling to town.
The hustler met Wm. Gird
an old pioneer, eight miles north
of Monroe. Mr. Gird is a breed
er of fine horses. He has two
fine Hambletonian Mambrino
stallions, one of them, Sir Wal
ter, with a record of 2 135. The
other, Lom Corwin, Has never
been trained. Sir Walter was
sired by Antelope, out of Old
rut. Mr. Lrird is a social gen
tleman. He was shearing: his
sheep when the hustler called,
having a man from Sodaville
shearing for him. He has a big
and fine wheat farm.
Mack Porter, whose home
place is about half way between
Coryallis and Monroe, and who
is one of the leading; citizens of
old Benton, and one of her lead
ing stockmen, was the next man
found by the hustler. Mr. Port
er has the celebrated Aberdeen
Angus bull, Black Knight of
Estill, the premium calf of the
World's Fair at Chicago. The
bull weighs 2200 pounds. He
is black and a perfect beauty.
The great animal came up to the
hustler like a pet calf, and he
felt like he was fondling an ele
phant when he stood by the side
of the fine fellow. The service
fee of Black Knight of Estill is
$20. Mr. Porter has thirty head
of thoroughbred Aberdeen Angus
cattle. He has a yearling bull,
a son of Black Knight of Estill,
three-fourths Angus, that weighs
a .thousand pounds, and Mr.
Porter thinks he is going to be
larger than his noted sire. Mr.
Porter is the father of Cotswold
sheep breeding in this part of
Oregon. He ships fine stock
everywhere, and some Montana
men were there while the hust
ler was on the farm, wanting to
make up a carload of thorough
breds to ship to ranchers in the
inter mountain state, in order to
grade up their slock. Mr. Port
er is one of the best stockmen of
old Benton, and a fine gentleman
besides. He will carry a card in
the Homestead for the coming
The hustler stopped over night
at S. S. Hinkle's, near Inavaie.
Mr. Hinkle lives on a big stock
farm. He has Angus stock;
some very pretty cows. He goes
in tor stocK only, mostly cattle
Coming to near Philomath
again, the hustler stopped at Al
exander Casey's. He is a breed
er of fine poultry. He has
Black Minorcas, Langshans,
White and Black Plymouth
Rocks, and Pekin ducks. He
has a separate pen for each breed
and he is nicely fixed for raising
The hustler cut across the
country from here to Dusty. On
the road he stopped at the place
of Jesse Brown near Inavaie
postoffice. Mr. Brown has a fine
herd of Shorthorns, the nicest
herd of a dozen cows the hustler
has seen. Mr. Brown is a pio
neer citizen. He raised a trot
ter that made a record at the last
Oregon State Fair, and was sold
by Mr. Brown for 900. Mr.
Brown has a fine farm.
John Kiger, two miles from
Dusty, has a fine farm of 1800
acres in one body. He was just
starting the construction of a big
new barn, and the first timbers
were being put into the founda
tion of a new farm house.
These buildings will cost, when
completed, something like $10,
000. Mr. Kiger has two fine Al
tamonts. They are in training
at the track near Corvallis and
will be in the races at the Ore
gon State Fair this fall. He has
some standard bred bhortnorus,
and some English Shire brood
mares and about 1000 head of
good sheep. This is one of the
largest stock farms in the county.
