Tho old order Is chancing, suddenly,

- Prof. Thomas Shaw, agriculturist
of'tho Orcat Northern nnd Northern
Pacific railroads, was sent to Mon
tana by James J, Hill to report on
grain possibilities. Largely due to
the experiment of Prof. Shaw during
only three year, Montana was trans
formed" Into producer of 25,000,000
bushots of wheat annually.
This man ha now been sent to
Central .Oregon; and this is quoted
from his report, aa given to tho Oro
gon Journal November 10, 1012:
"Central Oregon Is a most wonder
ful country. The possibilities of de
velopment aro Immense. Thero is no
moro Xertllo soil to bo foand any
where, for Tolcanlc ash Is more en
during than nny other soil; and the
entire Central Oregon country con
sists of volcanic ash.
"Nearly all grain crops in Central
Orogon jboutd be winter crops, not
only winter whoat, but winter ryo,
oats, barley and vetch. lUlo mnlzA,
corn, alfalfa and potatoes should be
spring sown crops. Alfalfa will soon
bo ono of tho most Important crop
of Central Oregon. It will bo grown
for hay and need. Alfalfa grown ou
non-lrlgated land produce better
seod than that grown undor irriga
tion. "Thero are Immenso areas that can
bo Irrigated; but by pursuing tho
proper method, the dry lands will
bemado to yield largo crop. This
wo1 have proven In Montana; and we
aro now proving it In Central Ore
gon, whore wo have established an
oxperlmental station.
"In Central Oregon, cast of the
Cascado mountains, thero are 10,
000,000 acre of land ready for cul
tivation. These 10,000,000 ' acrca
would produce 120,000,000 bushel
of wheat, or moro than twice as much
as Is now being produced by the en
tire Pacific Northwest. Central Ore
gon will somo day become ono of the
most famous wheat producing sec
tions of the world."
