VllAT OP TIIU HARVMST?
Harvest time is nearly over and
( . crops are gnrncrctl inhny loft,
rjrurv and cellar. Another sea
cut's labor in plowing, seeding and
t !hng the growing crop is nbout
nucd nnd the question naturally
,ncs, what is the result? As very
ttle thieshing has yet been done it
- impossible to state exactly the
.c'J per acre, but it is certain that
t is reason's harvest will be a very
What has been grown on this
Oes.rt that a few years ago so many
j J was absolutely woithless? It
would be easier to answer, '"What
' as not btcti grown?'.' The posssi
ctlities of Df schntcs valley soil are
iptly summed up in the words of
-n enthusiastic Bend farmer who
Tcently said, "Why, this soil will
row anything you put into it."
And, indeed it will.
We find oats barley, wheat,
'over timothy, alfalfa, vetch, mil
'A etc, etc., growing hi great
abundance. We have yields of
ruall grain that average 50 bush
els to the acre, as estimated by a
nan who ran a threshing machine
throughout this section last year.
We find K. II. Lockycar, near
Redmoud, producing S bushels
c f oats per acre, and D. A. Yates,
nt Powell Daltes, growing 34 bush
els of barley per acre by dry farm
ng This season altalta and clover
arc cutting from two and a half to
three tons per acre for the first cut
ting, as witness the yields on the
Rowlee raucb, the Baldwin-Stearns
ranch, the C. O. D. Co.'s field at
Bend and various other ranches
over the segregation. Yes, "this
s a great alfalfa and clover coun
try," as miny remark, and each
year's harvest confirms our faith in
our land. Who can ask for any
filing better than oats standing to a
man's neck and wheat to his arm
pits, with the tops heavy with well
tilled kernels of grain? Many such
fields have been cut this season in
Arid what will this soil produce
.n garden truck? Every man who
has tried gardening here knows he
ten raise potatoes, turnips, rutaba
gas, carrots, parsnips, beets, onions,
lettuce, radishes, peas, cabbages,
spinach, cauliflower, rhubarb, cel
ery, egg plant, kail, salsify, squash,
and sweet corn. Root crops pro
lure a wonderful yield here, and
sugar beets how a very high per
cent of sugar. The Redmond fair,
where exhibits from all parts of the
segregation were to be seen, was an
excellent demonstration of what
can be grown in the garden. Be
sides the vegetables mcutioucd
Above, there were on exhibit toma
toes, cucumbers, beans, watermel
ons, cantaloupes, etc., etc. John
Reuehan had an exhibit which
bhowed 146 varieties of vegetable
nnd 13 hinds of grains, besides
grasses, all grown within a mile and
a half of Bepd. He had corn on
inhibition SI feet high with well
matured cars of the golden grain
J.. D. Wiest, the Bend nursery

strated that strawberries, red and
black raspberries, blackberries,

By li. It. Archer, Cashkr lUnV. of Coataterer,
Of all ihc vexatious problems the
(winker has to deal rith, overdrafts arc
far and away the most troublesome.
They increase the bookkecjicr's work,
the teller's cares and the cashier's
Past due notes cause bail dream, and
decreatinc deposits are unpleasant; lint
overdrafts ore nerve-racklnj;, slccj-kill-Ini;
and nightmare-producing. They
cause gray hairs, the loss of friends and
money, and break banks. Hank after
bank has gone down because of them.
All bunk, examiners frown ilowji on
the practice; they report the ofTendini;
bank, cite them to the law with a
strong admonition not to repeat the in
fraction. The higher courts have declared over
drafts to be illegal and that they should
f not in any cay- be allowed. Cashiers

stockholders where losses are sustained
in raying oven! rafts.

or anything cf valne, without offering to

your bank, which is n demand to pay

bank to do something it cannot lawfully
do. You hail just as well demand of the
merchants ;ood without pay. And yet
there are people foolish enough to get

Hanks are glad and willing to lend you
monfy on approved security and good
collateral, Imt want to do it in the sane,
sellable, safe way they want the note
made out before the check is drawn.
Hanks are absolutely mcessary. Dull
ness would stagnate without them; com
merce tjecbiues paralyzed when they sus

keeping the money, and lend their
credit and. cash in financing enterprises.
Hanks save men from financial ruin. No

cease once and forever the pernicious

Tlie road was established through the

even in 1865 I recall that the grant was,
