Snj-n More Feed Should Ho linked
Here Then Hog Could lk United
at Greater Profit Prices Golnjr
Higher If Slaughter Continues
(Dy E. L. POTTEn)
(Oregon Agricultural College)
The hog situation In Crook county
la not very difficult to describe. Tho
hog mon aro just now unable to make
any money shipping In grain and
feeding It to hogs at current prices
of grain and pork and aro thorefore,
for tho most part, closing out as fast
as they can and for whatever thoy
can get. Tho present disparity be
tween the prtco of grain and the
price of pork is having a bad oITect
upon the hog producers throughout
tho Northwest but It Is particularly
hard on tho hog raiser of tho Des
chutes valley. For some tlrao past
It has been tho opinion of nearly nil
hog men that tho Deschutes valley
farmers wore- "plunging" and wero
getting too many hogs and It Is cer
tainly true that tbero aro more hogs
in tho valley than aro now being fed
properly and that tho hog raisers
wero facing quite a dlfllcult problem
evcu beforo the outbreak of tho Eu
ropean war and Its effect upon prices.
It would seem, however. Just as
proper to say that Instead of thoro
being "too many hogs," there is not
"enough grain". Upon looking over
tho situation here we have been Im
pressed, not with tho enormous num
ber of hogs but with tho small
amount of grain upon which to feed
thorn. Three years ago the Agricul
tural College sent a demonstration
train through this country nnd from
that train n number of things wero
advocated, among them being crop
rotation, moro crops, better soil man
agement, better Irrigation and moro
hogs. Unfortunatoly tho "more
hogs" propaganda was more popular
than some other phases of the cam
paign and consequently the growth
of tho hog Industry was not equaled
by the Increase In crop production.
It thus became necessary to ship In
large quantities of grain and mill
feed for these hogs and wo all know
that there Is no profit In raising hogs
on grain shipped In from tho outside.
Now the production of hogs must
slacken until tho production of feed
ran catch up. Tho farmer must there
fore go easy on tho hogs and bend
every effort to increaso his produc
tion of hog feeds. Tho real question
beforo tho hog raiser Is not one of
live stock management but of crop
The question of the present dis
parity between tho price of hogs and
tho price of grain wo have left until
the last because, while serious
enough for the moment. It Is a tem
porary problem and will soon solve
Itself. In any business there comes
years when a profit Is Impossible bat
such years aro offset by tho years
when the profit is abnormally largo.
To assume that the recent market
prices can prevail would be an absur
dity becauso It would mean that the
hog would practically disappear from
the farms and pork be a rarity on tho
American table. On tho contrary,
anything which tends to cause breed
ers to market their stock hastens the
time of BhortaKO and consequent
higher prices. The financial panic of
1907 caused a general clean up of
breeding stock and young pigs and as
a result In a few months hogs were
higher than they had been for many
years. The present situation can on
ly mean a very serious shortage and
that right away. There seems no
doubt that hogs will be high very
soon and that furthermore the Port
land packers will have to go to the
Corn Belt to get enough hogs to sup
ply their demands, and all this with
in the year 1916. The man who has
hogs to market during that time will
surely profit thereby onl not only
profit by that transaction but mako
enough to wlpo out bis losses of the
present winter. We have already
stated mat tno ucscnuies vauey mr-,
mer would do well to bcud every ef
fort toward Increased crop produc-,
tlon and to go easy on the hogs b'lt
this does not mean to abandon the
hoe but on thn contrary to save a few
brood sowa and be so prepared to
profit by tho reaction that Is coming
quickly. To bavo moro feed than wo
have stock Is Just as bad as to have
moro stock than feed. A general
closing out of all breeding stock and
young pigs on the present low mar
ket must certainly be a nilstako and
one that will be regretted Dy all
means keop a fow sows but raise
more feed at home so that It will not
be necessary to ship In outside grain
at such high prices.
, A HIT OP ADVICE.
First don't delay. Second don't
experlmen.t If you suffer from back
. ache; headaches or dlizy spells. If
you rest poorly and aro languid In
tho morning; If the kidney secretions
aro Irregular and unnatural In ap
pearance, do not delay. In such
cases the kidneys often need help.
Doan'a Kidney PIUs aro especially
prepared for kidney trouble they
aro recommended by thousands. Can
residents desire moro convincing
proof of this locality? J F. Mont
gomery. West Oregon City, Oregon,
says: "I was troubled by kidney and
bladder complaint. I had a dull pain
In my back across my kidneys. While
I havo only use one box of Doan's
Kidney PIUs I appreciate their worth.
After I took them, the pain left mo

FACTS BROUQHT OUT
Investigation Mndo In Ochoco Nation.
ill Forest Shows Tlmt Animal De
stroy Grafting Value-Method of
Combatting Pest Li Found.
Tho district forester at Portland,
Oregon, announces that n report has
recently been complotod upon a study
mndo last summer and fall to deter
mine tho amount of damage done by
rodents, notably tho pocket gopher.
Tho study was mndo by tho Illolog
leal survoy, and tho area chosen for
tho Investigation was upon tho
Ochoco National Forest In Central
Oregon. Tho facts brought out by
tho study aro somowhat startling.
It has bcon known to the Fprest
Sorvlco for somo years that cortnln
areas had tho appenranco of being
overgrnsed, but It was not until a
more Intenslvo study of tho rnngo was
mndo that suspicion turned toward
tho pockot gopher so frequently soon
In theso localities. As a result of
tho study of tho ways of these lit Ho
animals, It Is safe to say that ou
many areas CO per cent of tho firm
ing valuo of tho range Is destroyed
by their work.
This destruction Is brought about
In thrco ways: First, by tho actual
food which thoy consumo or storo
away, which consists of tho roots of
various grasses and forngo plants.
In ono storeroom alono ovor 1,000
bullbs of tho mollca or bulb grass
wero found. Second: tho mounds ot
earth thrown out by tho gopher cover
considerable forago. This may ap
pear of small consoquenco, but each
mound will average a squaro foot In
slzo. On ono area thoro was found
an averago of 8,800 mounds to tho
acre. This means that one-fourth of
onch aero was rendered valuoloss.
Third: holr system of burrowlug
countless runways fairly undermines
tho ground, Incroascs tho friability
of tho soil, destroys the root sys
