thoy bring mora icsponslhllltles but
thoy also reduce tho length of tlmo
required to build up a pure-bred

means of Incomo from tho sale of bull
calves for breeding purposes.
Tho practical dairyman with smull
capital can start with safety with
grades only. With his grades paid
for and a good herd built up by care
ful selection and ' the use of good
bulls, ho con begin purchasing pure
bred h, Ho realizes, when a bull calf
from a grade cow comes with tho
year's Increase that he has nothing la
that animal but beef.
When purobred animals aro pur
chased tho dairyman should consider
tho pedigree of the man from whom
ho secures tho stock an well as the.
pcdlgreo of tho animals. A relluble
honrfM breeder puts tho price on his
animals that thoy are, worth as ani

With his bull secured and his fe

Tho cliuractor of tho farm Is of
vital Importance. It miiHt bo uduptcd
to dairying Any general farm, If
successful, should muka a dairy herd

farms of general typo haro bojii pull
ed from the unsuccessful class by
tho dairy cow.
Tho farm should bo able to pro
dtico tho roughage, most of tho grain
and tho bedding necessary for tho
hord. With present prlros for dairy
products, thu dairyman who has to
buy very heavily of grains and feeds
not produced on his farm, finds his
margin of profits rather slim.
Finally, thoro aro the markets to

of thi dairyman?
If whole milk is sold to the city
trade, or It whole milk for checso Is
In greatest demand, the dairyman

LEGE, April 1. That newspaper
adrertlslw; for tho salo of farm com
modities Is coming Into una rapidly
because It Is ono remedy for tho
wantoful and unsatisfactory methods
of tho distributing system, Is tho
opinion of C. J. Mcintosh, agricul
tural press editor of tho college.
"Tho most economical ubo of farm
products Is by tho growejr and when
ho has a surplus tho most economical
users arc his neighbors," said Mr,
Mcintosh.. "Tho most economical
way of marketing to his neighbors Is
to market as nearly direct as possl
"Sometimes growers supply their
neighbors with their own surplus
products through long, devious, and
expensive channels. Tho potato
growers of Coos Day havo often sold
tholr potatoes to tTielr neighbors
through San Francisco commission
Thoro aro legitimate charges for
freight, storage, and commissions
which aro borno by both consumer
and produces. Tho producer gets
less than tho terminal prlco by tho
cost of haul and storage, while tho
consumer pays the terminal price
plus storago and rchaul. Tho news
paper la an ideal vehicle for cutting
across lots from growex to table."
farmers aud nowspapcr men In
general in Oregon havo taken an In
terest in tho morsraent toward this
typo of advertising. It Is expected
that a collego bulletin will bo pub
lished soon on tho subject of ndver
tlsng for tho farmer.
