heavy shower was experenced on
that evening and again on Wed
nesday night it began raining
and the next morning the mea
surement showed almost an inch.
It has interfered with the hay
harvesy and considerable was

it can be cut by the binder.

During the quarter ending

mits have been issued by the
State Engineer for the storage
and appropriation of water in
Harney County. Among these
are the permits of C. B. McCon
nell and Leonard and Emory
Cole, covering water rights for
a large irrigation project in the
vicinity of Riley and Burns. It
is contemplated to construct two
or three reservoirs on Silvies

cellent sites. What is known as
the Lower Reservoir on Silvies
River will impound 90,000 acre
feet, while the upper reservoir
will impound 106,000 acre feet
and the proposed reservoir on
Emigrant Creek will store 67.5G0
acre feet In addition to these
reservoirs for the Silvies River
unit, it is proposed to store 2,380
acre feet of the waters of Poison
Creek. The Silver Creek unit
will be supplied with water from
the Silver and Nichols Creeks
reservoirs which will have im
IKHinding capacities of 97,700
acre feet and 2,215 acre feet,
resectively. The Silvies River
unit of the project includes the
irrigation of about 27,592 acres
and the Silver Creek unite 26.701

The following simple and ef
fective way of bottling berry
juices was employed by Professor
C. I. Lewis in the laboratory of
the Oregon Agricultural College,
and is a sure way of saving
loganberries at a good profty on
the rainy day: Heat the berries
to as nearly the boiling point as
possible and strain out the juice.
Mix juice with one-third its
measure of sugar, heat as before
pour into sterilized soft drink
bottles, shove the cork about two
inches within the neck of the
bottle, and pour melted parafine
to the top. This process preser
ves the flavors and aromas and
keeps the product indefinitely.

LATEST DEVELOPMENT LEAGUE NOTES
iFriun Our I'urtlnnil Correspondent)
That the policy of the Portland
Commercial Club to continue the
campaign of farm development
throughout the state is in high
favor with the business interests
of the city is evidenced by the
fact that the present campaign
has met with more prompt and
favorable support among property
owners of Portland than any
movement of like nature that
has been conducted in the past.
A few week ago the Commer
cial Club set out to raise a fund
of $160,000 to be expended in
development work throughout
Oregon during the next three
years and so successful has been
the effort that at the present
time the fund is well above the
$100,000 mark and it is believed
bv those having the campaign in
charge the full sum will be pledg
ed within the next month. In
the list of those who have given
definite sums are 160 firms and
individuals representing virtually
every branch of business activity
in the city.
The fact that onions from
Texas, potatoes from California
and eggs and poultry from points
outside of Oregon are being re
ceived in Portland in carload lots
while the farmers in the im
mediate vicinity of the city, as
well as those tributary to the
railroads leading to this market,
cannot find a market for their
produce at any price has led the
Portland Realty Board to actively
take up the question of establish
ing public markets where gard
eners and farmers may dispose
of their products direct to the
consumer with great benefit to
both. It is stated thai the fact
that farmers cannot sell their
own crops in Portland without a
license, and the further fact
that the commission men will
not buy from him except at their
own prices, is causing many
farmers to allow fruits and
vegetables to go to waste rather
that dispose of them at a lost
That the dairy business in the
coast counties has been establish
ed on a paying basis is evidenced
by the fact that the Clatsop
County Co-operative Cheese As
sociation has recently been pay
ing 7c more per pound for butter
fat than the market price. The
average amount of milk now
being received is nearly 6,000
pounds per day with a prospect
of greatly increased supplies in
the near future. An ice manu
facturing plant will be installed
before the adv nt of hot weather
Attention has recently been
called, by the Oregon Agricultur
al College, to the fact that many
farmers who are so unfortunate
as to have hay injurtd or spoiled
bv rain are making the mistake
of either burning it in the field
or allowing it to rot in piles. It
is stated that spoiled clover or
alfalfa hay is worth $8.60 to
$10.00 per ton as fertilizer it'
evenly spread over the fields and
plowed under, and that every ton
of hay so worked into the soil is
approximately worth four tons of
fresh manure. A ton of clover
hay contains 40 pounds of nitro
gen, 6 pounds of phosphorus and
30 pounds of potash, which, if
purchased in the open market
would cost the farmer about
$10.60, and as clover and vetch
is yielding about 24 tons per acre
this season, the plowing under
of the spoiled hay adds a fer
tilizer value of not less than $25
to each acre.
