to sharp declines during the week
ending September 21, influenced
arwly by a continued slow export

heat, together with leu active
imiiiiry for feed grains as a result
of improved paturage, and more
favorable project for late corn,
says the U. S. bureau of agricultural
economics. Wheat Wlined 6 cents
to 7 rents and feed grains 1 cent to
2 rents per bushel. Rye wu lower
but flax prices cloned practically un
changed, though fluctuations were
rather sharp during the week.

EXTENDED DROUTH DE-
LAYS FALL SEEDING
Grain Growers Faced by Danger
From Sowing in Dry Land
The Oregon grain grower is con
fronted with a difficult problem this
fall as a result of the extended
drouth which har, seriously interfer
ed with usuel fall seeding. Some have
already sowed in "the dust and arc
Imping1 for the best, while others arc
depending on enough open weather
after the rains start to gH the grain
in and germinated.
While sowing in the dust in east
ern Oregon summer fallow is fre
quently safe and necessary, on heav
ier soils alrendy cropped this year the
situation is somewhat different, oh-
nerved D. D. HilL assistant agrono
mist at the Oregon Experiment sta
tion, who is faced with a similar prob
lem on the college farm.
"W? have found in the past that
it in practically impossible to get a
satisfactory seed bed from dry fall
plowing," said Mr. Hill. "The top
can be worked fairly well, but the
heavy clods below cannot Further
more gr.in sowed in dry ground la
iiaeiy to wj vory wceuy as there a "
not opportunity to get rid of the
first stand. A third danger is from
partial germination followed by
enough dry weather to injure the
"On the other hand grain rowed
after November 1 is practically sure
to give less than a normal yield,
though from October 19 to 20 Is a
safe period nearly every year.
"For our own crops wc intend to
hold off for the rains and seed in
October if possible, but if for any
reason we cannot, we will pray for
an open February and put H in then.
All in all it is a ca e of difficult de
cisions, but we feel there is more
danger in dry seeding than in wait
mg." PACE, LINE AND PARACRAPH
The profitable pig is te one that
is kept growing continuously from
farrowing until marketing time.
Overloading a young horse may
cause balkiness. Punishing him for
something he can not do may have the
Sheep probably suffer more from
parasites than do any other kind of
livestock. Pasture rotation, use of
forage crops, feeding from racks or
racks or bare floors, draining or
filling swamps, and restraining wan
dering dogs are valuable measures
in para Kic control.

High-producing dairy cows not
only excel low producers in produc
tion of milk and butterfat, but they
show more "economy rn utilizing
feed. Records of more than 100,000
dairy cows, compiled by the U. S.
Department of Agricultural, showed
that the cost of feed for cows pro
ducing D.000 pounds of milk a year
per cow wan only about 40 per cent
more than for cows producing 4,600.
Many Oregon fruit growers make
some extra money on the side this
time of the year by making and sell
ing unfermented apple cider from off
grade apples. A blend of apple van
ticc. gives the quality to cider, as the
flavor is improved by mixing of the
juices. This good quality can be re
tained through the winter, by the
way, by pasturing the juice after it
is filtered and sealing in bottles or
Dairymen of Oregon are again con
fronted with a feed problem resulting
from the protracted drouth. The tem
tation is to save on feed and permit
the animals to fall off in milk and
fie h, intending to regain these when
the pasture starts. Observation
shows, however, that when this is
done the pasture goes into rebuilding
the cow's body and leaves the milk
product ion lowered, nays the college
dairy extension specialist.
A bordeaux spray gives the most
lasting results in keeping trees free
from moss and lice, aa the effects re
main for several years. Where the
trees are already badly infested the
growth will gradually weather away
after a thorough application, finds
the experiment illation. If quicker
result are wanted a lye solution 1
pound to 0 or 8 gallons of water
prayed on is effectlce, but is good
for nly ne season.
Fall grain seeded aftor November 1
is rarely euccesaful in Oregon, ob
serves the experiment station. Some
Oregon growers are planning to get
in all they cin during October and
hold over the rest in hope of an
open February for early spring seed
ing, rather than run the serious dan
ger, of sowing in the dry ground on
a poor seed bed.
Tlnl TTr About
A tiiv LJd Town
Elmer Hornquist, father of the
"Sheepherders Union" has another
organization bee in his bonnet, this
time being determined to perfect an
amalgamation of all Maupmites who
have had their teeth pulled and
plates inserted in lieu thereof. El
mer's charter list contains the names
of John McMillan, James Rusic, Al.
Kennedy, himself, Verne Fischer, all
of the original union, and Bob Wil
son, The Timeg man, Ira Kestner,
Ben Fraley, Roy Batty, Frank Crea
ger, Johnny Williams, many babies
and Frank Turner. Lester Kelly
will be taken in as an honorary mem
ber, to be admitted to full member
ship after another trip to The
Dalles. Elmer insists his new ord'T

organization banquet nothing but
soup be served. In that event mem
bers will be fully able to masticate
the viands without trouble, the only
limitation placed being that eating
be as noiseless as porsible.
While on their hunting trip to
Snow Mountain the party made up
of Bill and Johnny Williams, Elmer
Hornquist and A. J. Roy, got one
large buck. Elmer was the lucky
shot. When they dressed the car
cass they dk covered the deer to
have been in an advanced stage of
tuberculosis. The lungs were cover
ed with white spots, from some of
which pus exuded. The other organs
showed unmistakable evidences of
the disease. The care a: s was de
stroyed. It is supposed the disease
W83 contracted by contact with cat
tle, there having many of such
grazing where the deer was killed,
and some of them show signs of hav
ing the ailment.
How many of our readers befievt
in fortune tellers and the stuff they
peddle to their dupes? That breed of
parasites enjoys a good living from
the fees paid by the credulous, many
of whom are influenced by the talks
of the charlatains and who pungle
up their good coin for the "advice"
handed them. A ease came to our
attention recently wherein a woman
consulted one of the fakes. She was
destined to make a most advanta
geous marriage with a wealthy man
and that life therafter wou'd he a
bed of roses. Her husband is most
indulgent, providing her with a
good home and offering nil the little
amenities that go to make a home
pleasant. The woman in the case
gave serious thought about a divorse.
We are pleased to state he hav been
disillusioned regarding the advice
given her and at this time seems to
have resigned herself to the company
of her spouse, evidently having given
up the thought to taking on another
and richer man. Wisdom comet,
to those who have reached old ape.
Oliver Resh has made a new de
parture in business. For several
months he has been giving tickets
with purchases and on the fir t of the
following month has held a drawing.
He gave a total of 10 prizes monthly,
ranging from a rack of flour, and
whole hams down to B box of candy.
By that means all ticket holders had
a chance. But that scheme did not
give a vast majority of the ticket
holders over ten chances out of thousand)-.
Now Oliver is going to gve
all of his customers a chance, one
they may take home with them In the
shape of reduced prices on meats.
The Resh market handles only the
best in the meat line and Mr, Resh
has decided to put the price down so
all msy enjoy a mcculcnt stenk or
the flesh of a prime ham. Now you
may procure the best steak obtain
able at a price of 29 cents a pound
and may purchase a large whole or
half ham and pay but 29 cents a
pound for it. That's whero all may
benefit at the time of purchase. See
his ad at the top of our local column.
Howard Nye has given up trying t0
raise wheat and has gone to Hood
River, where ho is employed by a
prominent orchardi' t. Howard evi
dently figured that all was not beer
and skittles on a wheat ranch, and
also that working for wages guaran
teed a steady income without having
to wait a year fr h'8 summer fallow
