bear him out.
One of the pleasing features
dicernible in the wheat regions
is an increasing interest in feed
ing grain instead of marketing
it in the raw. Many wheat
growers are feeding their wheat

The one drawback in much of
the area where grain is grown is
the lack of water. Without a
good supply of running water

was that consumatcd a short time
ago, when 460 acres of meadow
land near the C. B. Allen ranch,
on the upper Deschutes, became
the property of Tom Button, the

through the Oregon Land & Im

The property was owned by F.
Quinby. Button comes from the
