SATURDAY. JULY M. 113
Business methods are con
tinually changing. Within the
memory of many of the active
business men of today a real
evolution has taken place? A
few years ago there was a
ready market for manufactur
ed products. This was because
our population was not so la rj .
and the demand easily exhaust
ed the supply. But increasing
factories, and greater compe
tition have changed the situa
tion. Today the manufacturer
is endeavoring through adver
tising to create a demand for
his goods, as he finds local
dealers are anxious to carry in
stock goods of recognized final
ity, for which there is a de
Although the manufacturer
has been creating a demand
for his product through a big
advertising campaign it is up
to the local merchant to carry
on the advertising campaign
in his community, and not only
handle goods ot quality but to
be strong in telling of its
While business has been de
veloping, advertising, as a part
of business, has undergone
great changes. About fifty
years ago it was considered
contrary to business ethics to
solicit away from acompetitor.
From then to now is only a
short span of years, and yet
today about $1,000,000,000 is
spent annually in advertising,
Competition has become very
sharp in the advertising field
and to be a successful adver
tiser requires skill. The spas
modic, wasteful advertising of
yesterday is giving way to the
persistent and systematic ad
vertising of today.
The time is fast approaching
when the persistent and sys
tematic advertiser is going to
get the business. It may not
come today or tomorrow but it
is just as certain to come as
death itself. Every merchant
who desires to keep abreast of
changing business methods
will make it a part of his busi
ness to study advertising or he
will wake up some morning
and find that he is outclassed
the records of the forest reserve,
which shows that where two
years ago permits were taken out
for grazing of 12,000 cattle on
one range, the permits this year
are for only 700. "The channel
between the increasing popula
tion and the decreasing number
of cattle is widening each year,"

"Knowing that a large per
cent of the area of Oregon is

Oregon is not being utilized

next visit Mr. Furrell will see
more of this immediate section
and meet n greater number of
people. At least he should do so
for the benefit of all interested.

Mr. i) furreii. the newspaper
writer of New York, was liert
for the purpose of securing data
for descriptive articles of the
country. Mr. O'Farrell is a very
observant man and his articles
will be of vast benefit to this sec
tion in the way of exploiting its
resources and possibilities. The
gentleman said most emphatically
that this portion of the north
west had not received its just
dues in respect to advertising.
In fact the entire west was not

The speculator who is now ex

pose of disposing of his lands at
an advanced iigure, making an
enormous profit, is not securing
the right material with which to
build up the country. In most
instances he is selling to another
speculator who is going to add
more to the price of the land.
While no definite statement of
the extension of the line west
from Vale was made by the i ail-
road men while here, "ir any
questions aaked, it is generally
believed the work will progress
with reasonable rapidity and the
road pushed into the Valley with
the least possible delay. The
visitors seemed impressed with
the country and took a deep in

This is essential and depends to
a great extent upon railroad
transportation, therefore the two
enterprises most essential to the
of the grains and yet harvest
before the grain. Twelve varie
ties of this crop are now on trial
at the Experiment Station and
are pronounced by all familiar
with flax as a crop as a decided
success in every way, particul
arity as to the yield that is
promised. Flax seed, at present
prices and railroad transporta
tion, will net the grower here
about $1.08 per bushel. An
average yeild is from 15 to 20
bushels per acre.
SOMK QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS.
Do you recommend planting
land that is cleared and plowed
this fall to crop next spring?
Ans. It depends upon the land
The most important thing for you
to determine in answering this
question for yourself is how
deep down is the soil moist It
does not matter how much rain
you have so much as how deep it
wet the soil. If you have sub-
irrigated land you will find that
the land is wet all the way down
and you cun safely plant But,
if you are on the dry lands, you
will find that the soil is wet only
to a depth of from one to two
feet as a rule on land handled as
you propose. This is not enough
moisture to insure a crop. In
fact it would be a coincidence
were a crop to develop under
those conditions. It would be
better to maintain a summer fal
low mulch on this land and not
plant until the following year.
By this time you will have stored
up two year's moisture and the
soil will be wet down about three
feet. This will give you a fair
yeild providing you use good
methods other wise. For those
who must plant on one year's
moisture, it is much better to
plant a crop that can be culti
vated such as field peas, potatoes
etc. Even to plant grain in
double rows and cultivate it
would be far better than to throw
away seed and crop by planting
it in the ordinary way.
What do you think about plant
ing winter wheat in the spring?
Ans. Winter wheat planted
very early, February or March,
will usually do well. It should
never be planted aH late as the
spring wheats. When planted
late it will not make a crop but
; put in the summer stooling out.
Do you recommend packing

it seems certain that greater
