"Our object Ih to promote agriculture,
dairying, horticulture, etc., In the vi
cinity of Independence, which Is of
uuch lmporlunce to the Willamette
valley uh well. These demonstra
tion are being made entirely for the
benefit of the farmers. It Is a rare
opportunity for them to obtain the
benefit of tho experience of the pi
oneer workers along these lines. The
train consists of one car equipped I
and devoted to tho demonstration of
agriculture, another to dairying and
live stock, milk testing and separat
ing, another car will be devoted to
horticulture, trult spraying and fruit
packing, and another car will be
equipped with model cow stalls In
which cow will be carried and the
process of milking by machinery will
bo demonstrated. Similar trains
were operated In Eastern Oregon and
Washington during tho past summer
which were of a great help to the
farmers in improving conditions, so
inuch so that frequent requests on
the company have been made for a
repltltion of tho demonstrations. Our
aim Is to assist in improving condi
lions in the Willamette valley. This
train will be run on a larger scope,
accompanied by lecturers well skilled
in their particular fields. The lec
tures will be delivered from the train,
which will arrive ia Independence at
1:55 and will remain at the station
until 3:25, giving an hour and thirty
minutes of practical demonstration
to which farmers are cordially invit
ed to attend."
Every farmer, fruitgrower, stock
raiser or dairyman should attend the
demonstration at Independence Fri
day, November 6th. Your wives also
should come, lest you may not be
able to comprehend all the demon
strations. The women will be inter
ested in many of the demonstrations,
especially in horticulture and dairy
ing, and perhaps, in many of the
pocket knives, and about flO worth

merchants. The streets and other
municipal improvements are all

You will see from this that more real
danger lurks in a cold than in any
other of the common ailments. The
easiest and quickest way to cure a

cures effected by this preparation
have made it a staple article of trade
