Did you read thnt notice in last
week's Bulletin in which Mayor
Davidson stated that Saturday,
May 1, would be cleaning up day
in Bend? It is necessary and com
mendable to clean ' up our streets
and alleys at least once a year, so
let everyone get busy with rake

yon has been approved by Secretary
Ballingcr, and he has called for
maps for the balance of the 130 miles
of new road. Hurry it along!
Hurry it along 1 The whole of Cen
tral Oregon is getting mighty tired
of these delays. There's a nigger
in the woodpile somewhere. Why
were not these other maps submit
ted long ago?
The forward march of civilization
is making itself felt these days in
benighted Turkey, and a better day
is coming for the inhabitants of
that land of dppression. The
Young Turks, a political party that
demands governmental reforms,
have become so powerful that they
are now demanding the abdication
of the sultan, and they are backed
by the Turkish army. Thus the
yeast of progress foments in that
distant land, and from it will come
an up-lift of the common man.
Success to the Young Turks.
Swift & Company announce that
they plan to begin actual packing
operations in their new plant at
Portland in July. This brings to
the surface the necessity for the
farmers of Oregon to grow more
hogs. Pigs can be raised until
they are three months old on vetch
or other roughage at practically no
expense other than for pasturage.
A fat 300 pound hog in Portland
today b worth $15.50 cash, live
weight. The packers will have to
get a supply. Must they send the
money for the hogs to Nebraska, or
will we raise them in Oregon?

the recent home talent production,
"A Case of Suspension." Thirty

decorated with yellow and white
daffodils. Music was furnished by
it quartet consisting of Miss Marion

Uy Arnold Martin, ta Wallace's
Potato growing has been the
money-making business on my
small farm of 30 acres. My suc
cess is due to careful selection of
the seed, thorough cultivation ot
the crop, keeping up fertility of the
land, and draining the wet places.
Clover and alfalfa give cheaper and
safer plant food than commercial
fertilizers. Level and shallow
culture conserves the moisture, pre
vents root pruniug, and increases
Instead of following the usual
custom of going to the bin in tbe
spring for my seed, taking what the
hotose wife has left from her selec
tion for the table, I go through the
growing potato patch and select
seed after a study of tbe vines. I
believe this plan of careful selection
will be one remedy for our greatly
lessened yield. I find also by this
method of selecting from the best
and healthiest hills that I can avoid
a great many of the diseases and
blights which cut down tbe yield
ou so many farms. Selection of
seed in this way involves some
work, but no more than proper se
lection of seed corn from the field.
Seed selection is tbe first important
point to which our potato growers
need to give attention. We arc
more careless iu this than anything
I plow my ground as deep as I
can, and the earlier the better,
plowing in the fall 'and leaving it
as rough as possible so as to catch
the snow. The frost pulverizes the
sod so it is easy to" work it in the
spring. In the spring I work the
ground into a good seed bed and
plant as soon as the ground is
ready. I pay no attention to tbe
moon or Good Friday. I want my
potatoes to start sprouting in the
ground and not in the cellar or the
pile. I plant J'rotn one to thrcc-cyc
pieces, but one eye is enough. I
drop them 12 inches apart, the
rows being three feet six inches
apart. I prefer no planter, using
the lister for marking out and cov
ering with the cultivator. Ten days
after planting I commence my first
plowing, using a small fire-shovel
plow. This loosens up the soil be
tween tbe rows and makes a mulch
which will bold the moisture, be
sides letting in the warm air. In a
few days I can see tbe rows, and
then I take tbe cultivator and give
them a deep plowing and loosen up
the soil for the roots. Every time
I follow with the weeder, which cau
be used until the tops are to inches
high. Cultivation is kept up every
10 days or after every rain as long
as tbe cultivator can pass between
the rows. Many other crops may
be grown between tbe rows instead
and they do no harm to the pota
toes. Cultivation is very import"
ant. It must be shallow after the
first deep plowing so as not to dis
turb the roots. One and a half to
two inches is plenty deep enough
This gives enough dirt to form a
mulch and hold tbe moisture and
keep down tbe weeds. Deep cul
ture will destroy many of the fine
fibrous roots, The old saying was
to quit plowing when tbe potatoes
were in bloom and the corn began
to tassel. With the tools they had
at that time that was probably
sound practice but now we have
mplements which they did not
have then and which can be used
without injury to the roots of the
plants. The average Western
farmer does not give the potato a
fair chance and that is the reason
why bis yield is decreasing and the
seed runuing out. If he will plow
his potatoes as long as the vines
are green and growing, and espe
cially in sections where there is not
an abundance of rainfall, it will
make a wonderful difference iu the
crop. There is no advantage iu do
ing things half way. -Arnold Mar
tiu, of Nebraska, iu Wallace's

Constant Publicity In Newspapers Kind
That firings Business.
The results to be derived from con
tinuous, everyday advertising cannot be
overestimated. That person or concern
that desires to have its business grow and
expand goes into the newspapers and
stays there. By that we do not mean to
let the wording of an ad. run without
frequent change. We mean space.
The advertising you did yesterday will
help your advertising today, and the ad
vertising of today helps that of tomorrow.

Another capacity house greeted
the acturs in the home talent play,

inucU amusement to tlic audience,
F. M. Ray, in the title role of Carl
Johnson, was exceptionally good,
and in fact all of those who took
part acquitted themselves with

which it did to a marked degree.
Whenever the Bend Woodmen are
