One of the most affecting in

tho elder greeted Colonel William

was expected. Hanley heard the

C. C. Chapman to tho train.

tho country," said Mr. Hill at the
spike driving. "Nations that
havo neglected tho cultivation of
tho soil have faded from the face
of tho earth. Thero is no reason
why Central Oregon should not
produce enormous wealth. We
have a good deal of faith in it.
Wo believe if this soil is properly
cared for, if it is properly under
stood and fair justice done to it,
it will make a happy home for
thousands and millions of people.
I wish you all Godspeed and every
particle of luck and prosperity
that can come to you."
Portland will raise money to
aid in tho operation of two dem
onstration farms in Central Ore
gon. The railroads have pledged
$5,000, Portland business men
will give $2,000 and Crook county
will raise by taxation $3,000.
One farm will bo established in
dry farming country and the
other in an irrigated district. A
local committee has been named
to secure the funds and a dinner
will bo held at the Commercial
Club October 18, when plans will
bo made. On the train relum
ing from the golden spike driving
at Bend during the past week, a
considerable sum was subscribed
by Portland excursionists.
Harrisburg women have turned
their attention to practical things
and will hold a potato carnival
October 18 and 19. This, it is
promised, will be "An exhibition
of painstaking potato culture por
traying all the progressive meth
ods of planting, peeling and pre
paring the ever palatable potato. "
Women are ofiicials of the show.
Agricultural possibilities of
Oregon arc shown by an inter
esting comparison just made by
President Howard Elliott of the
Northern Pacific Railway of tho
area of this state with that of
Denmark, Holland, Belgium, Al-
aace-Loraine, Luxemburg, Switz
erland and tho state of Maine.
Combined, they havo 05,022
square miles, while Oregon has
9G.030. On the other hand, the
combined population of these
countries is 21,59 1,089, while Ore

clusion is that this state has as
great agricultural resources as
tho above group and may very
likely equal it in population when
its lands arc properly tilled.

his wearing apparel seemed to be

the market afforded and what
market it was no one knew. At
a glance I was impressed that tho
tailor that made Morgan's clothes
had not made mine.
His eyes are like 'brands, in so
far that they are piercing, but
they differ greatly as one of them
seems to be tilted a little up and
to ono side, suggesting possibly
a strain from trying to look to the
top of the pile.
To discuss Mr. Morgan's fea
tures without mentioning his
nose would be like Bill Sterritt's
review of one of Shakespeare's
plays that Edwin Booth put on in
tho early days of Texas. Ster
ritt wrote two nowspaper pages
about the play and never men
tioned Booth's name from begin
ning to end. But Mr. Morgan's
features all suggest pay-dirt.
His mouth, chin and cheek-bones
all denote a dash and firmness
that must be necessary in some of
his business affairs.
While I was making Mr. Mor
gan's sketch, that is reproduced
here, ho saw mo and instantly
detected what my game was not
withstanding that his attontion
was riveted on tho bidding for tho
Cleveland bouds. But I soon no-
richly made clothes.
One instinctively recalls the
story of Gales, Morgan and the
Steel Board when he looks in
I Morgan's eyes. That sort of a
wild excitable expression of the
eyes, in Morgan s case, makes it
very easy to understand what
happened when Mr. Gates went
to Mr. Morgan's office to protest
because it was he, Morgan, that
kept Gates' name off from the
Steel Board.
Mr. Gates asked him in a miid
l voice if this was true. Mr. Mor
gan rising from his chair said:
"Yes, Mr. Gates, it is true. I
am the man -who is keeping you
Mr. Gates asked why and Mr.
Morgan answered; "On account
of your reputation, Sir."
Gates broke out into sarcastic
laughter asking Mr. Morgan if
lie, Gates, had ever done any
thing worse than Morgan. "On
ly," he added, "you have done
your stunts behind closed doors
and I have done mine in the
As Mr. Morgan took his hat
from the table and walked out of
the room he said: "Mr. Gates,
that is what doors are for to be
kept closed."
So when you see the snap of
Morgan's eyes you realize the
kind of man who would have the
nerve to tell John W. Gates what
doors are for.

The Rye Grass and Valley View
Grangers of Harney county held
a public meeting at Locher's hall
Thursday evening. This meet-
. nig was presided over hy Thos.
Raycraft, Grand Master of Valley

the purpose of bringing the far

touch with the Grange work.
The Grange song "Plow, Spade
