J. W. Moaaow,
This is the first of a series, that will be
published in the Gazette, relative to the
farming interests of Eastern Oregon, and
especially of Morrow county.
The publishers of the Gazette have not
ed the iueilicieut means at hand of diffus
ing knowledge in regard to the farming In
terests of this locality and bave under
taken the arduous task of procuring
such facts and figures in relation to
farming as will serve to auswer, lu part,
or the whole, as the oase may be, the
thousands of inquiries that are. being
constantly made regarding this wonder
At all times this journal has been fully
alive to the agricultural interests, and
has from time to time published state
ments showing the miraculous crops
The statements may have been accept
ed with a "grain of allowance" therefore
the Gazette, beiug the most progressive
journal in Eastern Oregon, has commenc
ed a ounvass ot the county, and will, by
publishing a correot statement from
each and every farmer, more thau verify
all it has heretofore said. With the
strict injunction to secure a complete
and reliable aooouut of what the farmers
are doing, regardless ot time or expense,
your representative seated himself behind
a nervy little horse and started for the
famous Eight Mile country.
The writer ot this article is fully con-
soious of his inability to do jtistioe to so
important and wioWronchiup: a subject,
and while the readers will have to be
content with a plain, nuvaftiished tale,
be can rest assured that the statements
made are thoroughly reliable, being the
actual figures given by the farmers
A history of the pioneer life and settle
ment of this country would be an inter
esting article and it will take a greater
pen and more space than can be afforded
at present, to portray the battles, sieges,
fortunes, struggles, trials and triumuhe
ot this hardy baud of nature's noblemen
Therefore the readers will pardon any
thing that will indioate a spirit of indiffer
euoe to that most trying ordeul, the early
settlement, and examine the situation as
it is today.
Leaving Heppner one passca over a
vast prairie that for miles and mileB rolls
back, like the ponderous waves of a
mighty ocean, uutil they are lost in the
background formed by the Blue moun
tains and a clear sky. The stubblefieldu
and countless straw stacks everywhere
furnish evidence of the prosperous sea
son past; while the busy farmers on
every baud display energy iu preparing
a large acreage for the coming season,
The push and vim with which they pur
sue their toil clearly show the abiding
faith they have in their chosen portion
of mother earth. This country seems
wonderfully adapted to farming, being
divided into two seasons, seed time aud
harvest. Plowing aud seeding can aud
hue been done iu all mouths of the year,
and harvest begins July lut aud is often
extended until the uiidiile of October or
the first of November.
Many of the settlers have for laudable
reasons built their homes on the lower
ground, the prime objeot beiug to have
access to plenty of good pure water aud
a strauger traveling through this country
is liable to overlook some of these hid
den homes even though he exercise the
ulmost diligence. Therefore if anyone
should be neglected in this review,
please do not charge your representa
tive with willful neglect, for the utmost
pains are taken at all times to make a
Having thus briefly outlined the pur
pose of this work and Bhown some of the
olwtaoles that lie iu the way of its fulfil
ment, will begin the aooouut of what the
farmers are doing wbioh is the best
evidence of the country's true worth.
Let it be recorded here also that any
failure iu this work will be due to the
inability of the writer personally, for the
Gazette has done everything in its pow
er to facilitate the work, to aid its rep
resentative, and render complete and ef
fective an undertaking unprecedented iu
the history of journalism. In pasaiug
judgment on the writer, may the gener
ous public be
"To his faults a little blind
And to his vlitues very kind."
At the Khea creek bridge on the road
to Eight Mile one cannot help but note
the unusual air of business tliat seems to
envelop the whole country.
Not far from this point will be found
the comfoi table home of
