were so many that only those of
particular interest to Oregon have
been printed, the others being
kept on file at the University for
the benefit of anyone who may
desire greater detail or informa­

The following quotation is made
from the approximate estimate of
the Flax Committee of the Eugene
Chamber of Commerce, showing
the probable costs and returns to
the farmer from flax culture, sell­
ing the straw to the scutching
mill without rettingorother treat­
ment, but simply as it comes from
the fields:

While some of the items in the

stances it is safe to say that the
net return is a conservative esti­
mate of what may be expected
u n d e r present conditions and
Other chapters deal with the
world-wide demand f o r fi a x,
freight rates, extracts from let­
ters showing the demand, the va­
riety of uses for and the manu­
factured products using Hax, the
production in the United States,
exports and imports, the commer­
cial status of flaxseed, industry
in oil seeds, linSeed oil, and flax
production, conditions and prices
in foreign countries.
There can be no two opinions
about the value of this addition
to the commercial literature of
the state and the possibilities
which it suggests of the develop­
ment of an industry in Oregon
that may prove to be second to no
other. The University is to be
both congratulated and praised
for work of this kind and quality
which is of such direct and prac­
tical value to the commonwealth.
It speaks volumes for the specific
service that is being rendered by
the School of Commerce under
the direction of H. B. Miller.

Fair Gets $200.
Commissioner Mattoon l a s t
week announced that a warrant
had been issued by the county
court for $200 as the county’s
contribution towards the coming
East Clackamas County Fair.
The News wishes to thank the
court for this donation and can
assure them and the taxpayers,
that the money will be well and
ably expended by the local fair
board, who are planning a 1916
fair that will eclipse all former
Some comment has been made
on the lateness of the date of the
local fair, coming after the Canby
and Salem Fairs, but the main
reason for choosing the dates of
October 4-5-6, was to allow of a
better display of matured pro­
duce, especially apples and the
late fruits. Furthermore, it is
planned to make a special feature
of an apple show', in which much
interest is already being taken.
