Hakdman, Ore, Oct, 8:
Outside of the dust, a trip from Hepp
ner to Hardman at this time of year is
pleasant. While the road could b bet
ter, there are much worse roads in dif
ferent sections of Eastern Oregon.
This is the season of heavy learning.
Great loads of wheat are now on the
move taking in freight for winter supply
of interior merchants at Spray, Monu
ment, Canyon City and other points.
On the road from H-ppner to Hard
man there are many fine wheat farms,
especially in that portion of the county
known as upper portion of this fertile
wheat district and comprises a narrow
territory when the Ileppner road
crosses, winding as it extends westward
to the Gooseberrv country.
In the immediate vicinity of Hard
man, wheat farming is carried on, to a
The long distance to drive to get the
advantage of railroad facilities is a great
handicap in this line of agriculture. It
means a hard pull of 20 miles and the
delivery of only one load for every two
days of toil through the dust which is
trying on tooth man and beast.
The main industry in this vast scope
of country through which the Heppner
Hardman road passes is stock raising.
Sheep and cattle now on the mountain
ranges will soon be brought in and will
dot the hills, now covered with grass
which has been allowed to grow during
the summer months.
Like other interior towns of Eastern
Oregon, Hardman depends mainly on
the stock industry which means sheep
and cattle generally.
A few of the ranchers have branched
oil" into hog raising and turn off a few
hundred hogs each year.
Hogs are profitable here. It is not
necessary to haul any grain away when
a hog is on the ranch. A feature of the
hog industry here is that there is a
home market. In the southern interior
country few hogs are raised and there
is a good demand for all the pork that

The land surrounding Hardman gen

Henry l-ergerson cut wheat that
would have made between 40 and 50
bushels to the acre.
As yet not much attention has been
paid to the growing of alfalfa in the
Hardman district however, but wherever
planted it has grown well.
In the vicinity of Hardman some of
the prominent stockmen of Morrow
Among the big sheep owaers there
are Frank P. Farnsworth, Anson
