WEDNKSDAY, APRIL a3, 1909 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 and shovel and we will have a cleaner town. The Erst 40 miles of Harriman's rlsht-of-way iu the Deschutes can 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?

CO- Mama, 8M. . aaoicurr blM tvm POTATO CULTURE Uy Arnold Martin, ta Wallace's Farmer. 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 the yield. 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 else. 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 Furmcr. HAS UUUUN BXPUKIAiliNTS.
