ONF. REASON FOR HIGHER

Drought and Eveeitive Raina Re-
ponaiblo for Leneninf of
Thia Year't Crop
State Market Agent Seymour,
ever in touch with agricultural and
stock conditions of the country, sent
out the following rtatcment regard
ing conditions of the Canadian wheat
crop. From it can be gathered just
what may be expected in the way of
higher prices for this year's wheat
crop. Mr. Seymour says:
"The latest news from Canada indi
cates a serious condition there. A
dispatch of 21st inst from Edmon
ton says: "Not for twenty years
have crop conditions in Canada been
so serious and unpromising as they
are today. The report of all the
Dominion statisticians published on
Saturday, showed crops for all Cana
da to be but 57 per cent of normal.
The price of wheat, of course, will
be higher than in other years, but
the farmer will have very little to
sell. In consequence of the prolong
ed drought and hot winds in the west,
great areas of the best wheat land
are parched and blackened. Hun
dreds of acres sovn to wheu have
been plowed in Kain has come in
time to save some of the fodder
crop but the outlook for grain is de

The last report of the state
health department gives Wasco
county credit for being one of the
mast healthful counties in Oregon.
But seven cases of communicable

total of 23 cases of such disease in
the whole state.

TRUCK AND COW COLLIDE
Carl Spirberman Kill. Bovine Noar
While on his way to The Dalles
from Maupin last Friday evening,
Carl I). Spickerman, operator of the
tnick line between the two stations,
ran into a bunch of cattle near the
school house opposite the John Hix
ranch. One cow wai killed and the
truck sustained a broken radiator and
lamps. The bovine was the property
of Obe Itu-sell and was running a
large on the highway at the time.
Many complaints have been made
about hogs and cattle grazing on the
various highways. Several of each
have been killed and several auto
temporarily put out of commission
because of collision with the ani
mals. Cattle running at large on
public roads are a menace to life and
limb and the prate.ice ihould be curb

ORECON GAINED 80 NEW
FAMILIES DURING JULY
More Settler Come to Oregon and
Invent Better Then Quarter
Concrete evidence of the attrac
tiveness of Oregon as a place for a
home is offered by the report of the
state chamber of commerce, W. G.
Ide, manager, for July which shows
80 new families who arrived and lo-
" d rh various counties and who in
vested $369,850. This also shows a
advance over the corresponding
month of 1928, when only 27 fami-j
lies settled in Oregon. The report
further show-B that the new people
purchased 3658 acres of land, con
trasted wkh but P21 in July, 1928.
Total ar.i ai3 for the first seven
months of 1'I2'. sh.'.w t7 fanner
who invested $1,492,MS in all ''ni!
of property in Oregon. Manager
Ide stages that from all indication'
the coming fall and winter month
will see an unprecedented influx of
families to this state, seeking loca
tions and investments. A part of the
great advance in number of new
families and investments being made
is arributed by the state chamber to
the efforts of their Los Angeles of
fice and the stationing of Arthur
Foster to their staff in the states
jift east of Oregon.
Mrs. Kramer Ill
Mrs. Ailene Kramer wats taken ill
with what seemed to be appendicitis

ailment as gastritis. Mrs. Kramer

Tomatoes Econ omy
TCVF.RY housewife wlw keeps up
ilwith the market knows that
L canned tomatoes are among the
bargains of the month. For they
can be bought for less than ten
rents a pound canned, to say nothing
of the saving of time which would
be consumed in selecting, peeling
and cooking fresh ones.
Hurray for Youth!
But does every housewife know
that tomatoes have received a real
endorsement from one who ought to
know, as to their good influence on
beauty? Edna Wallace Hopper,
youthful at sixty-eight (or is it
seventy?) asserts that it is the om
nipresent tomato which has been
largely reiponsible for her continued
PRICE OF WHEAT TO

Drought In Grain Prcducag Statas
Will Cau.e Buyer, to Pr
What may be expected In the
wheat market is clearly set forth by
Chas. D. Michaels, the Chicago Tri
bune's market writer, who says:
"Not only are crops in the American
md Canadian northwest facing the.
most seriou. drought in yeara with
production regarded as cut down 50
per cent and possibly more, but
there is drought in Argentina, South
China, Australia and the central
and New England states . of 'this
country, and is also spreading in
Europe. It pri ents a most serious
world situation as regards supplies
of wheal and changes the position
to the most bu P. h knevn. This
means higher pr"v ultimately, with
a close adjustment of world i upplies
to requirements. It is expected to
force foreignjr?, who !re said to
have delayed buying when prices
were down, to pay 50 cents, and
possibly 70 cents higher, or more, be
fore the end of the seosn. One new
factor which ia considered aa bull
ish is the attitude of the new feder
al relief board in forming a $20,
000,000 co-operative corporation to
handle wheat. It means the main
tenance of a higher standard of
price levels for wheat, which should
be reflected in all agricultural com.
POOR LAYERS EARLY MOLTERS
Agricultural Department Gire Soma
Fact. Concerning Chicken
At leat once during the summer
or early fall the poultry flock should
be culled to get rid of the birds that
are not paying for their keep. Health
and vigor are of first importance in
culling poultry. Hens in good lay
ing condition have bright red combs
that are waxy in texture. In yellow
shanked breeds, the beak and shanks
of the heavy layers are ordinarily
pale yellow or white. The pubic
bones of a goo 1 layer are thin and
flexible and when the hen i3 in lay
ing condition they are wide apart.
The skin of a good layer is soft and
pliable and of good texture and the
back i3 wide and long. Another im
portant point is the time of molting.
Poor layers usually molt earlier than
good ones. Heavy layers generally
do not begin to molt before Septem
ber or October. Culling not only
improves the breeding quality of the
flock, but if done early enough will
save feeding corts and spread the
marketing of surplus hens over a
longer period of time.
