The Department has asked

office in this city. Bids may be
made in three ways: To carry

provides for seven days each

mails may bring better service
than by compelling a contractor
to take all the classes of mail and

Beef Cow Brings $105.
Raising beef cattle, which is
rapidly on the incren u in Central
Oregon is a very prolitable under
taking if properly carried on.
Kvidenee of this is shown by the
sale last week of a cow which
brought the owner $105. The
animal was four years old and
her weight ran up to the high
sum of U1O11 pounds. O'Donnell

Best Profit In Young Beef
Profits In beef production come
from quick maturing stock sold
at one or two years of age. This
is the theory of the Portland ex
peit livestock men who conduct
ed the meat demonstration for
the farmers and stockmen at the
0. A. C. Short Course. "A man
recently sold a yearling in Port
land for $95 at the same time
that Mb neighbor sold his two-year-old
for $117," said Mr.
Forestel, of tho Union Meat
Company. ' 'There is no money
in feeding steers after they arc
two years old. Tho guin is not
worth the cost and the interest
on the investment, and the meat
sells for one or two' cents a pound
less. A good many growers
think that they want a great big
beef, and then get mad when
they get no more for it than their
wiser neighbors guts for the
smaller and better type. It payH

The Agricultural Club meeting
last Tuesday evening was one of
the most profitable and interest
ing of the series held this winter.
"Alfalfa" was the principal topic
of the eveninsr but this subject
was preceded by other interest
ing numbers.
Miss Bessie Smith rendered a
delightful piano solo and Miss

on cotton." As this did not
come within the scope of general
use in this section there was no
discussion to follow it but the
paper read by Miss Ruth Miller
on "Labor-Saving Devices for
the Home" brought out several
practical suggestions that were
well received and which could
and should be applied to the
homes of Harney county, such as
the tireless cooker, electric and
gasoline irons, washing machines,

Alfalfa is one of the most

been here if the government
hadn't sent a scientist to Asia to
get it. Something like !H) million
dollars' worth of Durum wheat

last year, but there never would
have been a pear of it raised

It was the work of the farm ad

to raise other crops if the weevil

Hotbeds Are Valuable
In Every Farm Garden
Hotbeds are artificial means of
giving seed and young plants
the benefit of summer weather
in early spring. Aside from
their aid in growing crops that
would not come to maturity
otherwise, they have a real
economic value. By their means
enough plants for the home
garden and some to sell to the
neighbors can be grown at a
slight cost. As designed by
Professor A. (1. Bouquet, garden
specialist at the Oregon Agricul
tural College, their construction
is simple and inexpensive. After
the first season there will be no
further money cost, as the glass
may be stored and kept for years.
All other material and all labor
are supplied by the resources of
the average farm.
The pit may be made by ex
cavuting a foot or two below the
surface. The sash is three feet
by six feet, and the frame is
made to suit these dimensions,
rising eight inches above the
ground in front and twelve inches
above at tho back, or north side.
If the pit is made 18 inches deep
it should be filled 14 inches with
manure and six inches with good
loam or other garden soil. After
the Boil has cooled to a safe tem
perature the seeds are sown.
For early green food lettuce,
radishes, und bunch onions are
good. These and other similar
vegetables may be thus grown
early in the spring and late in
the fall, greatly lengthening the
growing season.
"The Round-Up"
Tonawama tonight
Receipts for the week have
been Cattle-1721; Calves-20;
Hogs-54s4; Sheep-5264.
This week cattle trade showed
a few soft spots but was general
ly good. The big Monday run
of steers clipped about 10 cents
off former prices. Since Mon
day the receipts have been light.
Butcher stock on the other hand
was firm throughout Best cows
brought $7 00 and $7 05. bulls
$0 00 and calves $9 00. Killers
have not been over supplied on
she stuff and the market appears
very steady.
Tops dropped back to $8 70
Thursday which is 15 cents under
Monday's price at $8 H. It is
scarcely probable that March r
ccipts will be on a par with
February, but so many unexpect
ed things have occured in the
swine market this year the do
pesters have gone to cover.
Market steady with outlook good.
Mutton and lamb prices hit the
high places this week. Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday were
barren of receipts, but Fridav
saved the week and market from
stagnation. Monday was the
big day and fat mutton or lambs
were attractive commodities a

the run old wethers sold "off

The Studebaker Four Roadster is a car of dual type and manifold advantages.
As a Roadster the car presents a distinguished appearance, differing but little
from the conventional type.
When desired, however, it is only a few minutes' work to change it into a
closed car impenetrable to wind, cold, and rain. The Studebaker name guaran
tees appearance, durability and minimum cost of maintenance.
