WEDNESDAY. JUNE Si, 1911
people over tho rallronds from tho
East, and above nil, nothing will
help more to keep thoso whom tho
lavish publicity work already has
brought westward. Tho eommunl
tics of Central Orefron will take
their share of the work and of the
expense. They are unable to con
duct it alone but they are anxious
to co-opcrnte. Why not devote
just ten per cent, say, of the enor
mous fund annually spent in ndver
t3lnjr, to helping the people that
have come to make Rood?
Such an expenditure will reap a

experts, working with agricultural
exhibits, have set bjfore tho farmers
of the eastern states the advantages
they would incur by moving west-.
ward especially, during the last,
core of months, by moving to Cen
tral Oregon. As an added induce-1
ment all trans-continental lines'
maintain sjiecial "tourist rates"
during certain months. In brief, a
vast fortune is expended to pry.
easterners from their homes and to
transplant them to Oregon.
Well and good. Oregon, and!
Central Oregon, has in store for
these immigrants wonderful oppor
tunities, and it is right that they
should be told of them.

Again all well and good. But
wouldn't it be mighty good busi
nessjust a matter of dollars and
cents to you, gentlemen of the
railroads if a few of these thous
ands of dollars that arc spread
broidast in publicity work were
used to .help the people after you
have brought them westward? You
wont tonnage. The quickest way
to get it u to help the newcomers
to develop their lands. The quick

fairost method of reducing to the
minimum the number of failures,
to hasten the production of profi

is to teach the newcomers,. How?
iiy" the establishment and main
tenance of experiment farms and
W)ll analysis stations.
President Grav of the Hill lines
recently discussed the advisability
of inaugurating fyil analysis
stations. Let us hope Mr. Gray
will put his, idea into effect, and
speedily. Krom St. Paul at various
timoa have emamted intimations
that Central Oregon was to receive
the same sort of help in the way of
experiment farms as that which it
is understood has been so successful
in developing Montana. But to
date absolutely nothing has been
done. An "expert" or two has
traveled through the country in an
automobile, common led it, made
some valuable suggestions concern
ing what to plant and what not to
plant, and given out sundry inter
esting and instructive interviews.
But Central Oregon wants actual
assistance. It wants the newcomers
to have someone m turn to espec
ially the homestead settlers in the
practically untried territory to the
southeast of Bend a trained man
who will analyze the!r soil foj
them, advise them as to methods of
planting and cultivation, and, in
short, start them right.
Nothing will supply such Impetus
to the agricultural development of
the country. , Nothing will so much
hasten the production of tonnage.
Nothing will aid more in eliminating
failures. Nothing will bring rr ore
