In a good deal cf the most fertile
portion of tho Willamette Valley
there is only, about one family to
each 320 acres of land. There are
some farmers who can make three
or four times .as much as tho aver
age farmer on 320 acres, but we be
lieve it will be found that the aver
age farmer who farms 320 acres
makes nothing more than a fair
living. In. this fact lies one of the
greatest obstacles to the achieve
ment and maintenance of 1 good
roads. With only one or twofarm
e s to the square mile the oost of
good roads cannot be met. What
the Willamette Vallev needs is a
system of farmiae which will 'give
eight or ten families a good living
on each square tftile. Agncnilurlst

A Crying Shams
other visitors at the
offica this week were
two gentlemen from Alsea. I,ike
all residents of that seetiett who
succeed in crossing "the moun
tain" safely, the burden of their
conversation was ; the horrible
condition of the ioad across this
during the winter months:
almost impassible barrier. Fdr
at least six months in tha year
between 500 and 800 people liv
ing in Alsea and the country trib
utary are practically cut off from
the outside world. This matter
has been S3 thoroughly gone over
by the papers of Corvallis in
time past that it is unnecessary
td dilate upon it here. Suffice
it to say, the fact that such con
ditions exist is a crying shame.
The thing td do is to formulate a
remedy and apply it. There is
a sentiment among the people of
Alsea ia favor of the establish
ment Of a small sawmill at a con
venient place equipped for saw
ing blocks suitable for Corduroy
ing the road in question. There
is an abundance of timber grow
ing along the road and it is be
lieved that enough volunteer la
bor could be secured to do the
jvork. ' '
