Work of County Agents
Brings Good Results
"The good results of the work
of the county demonstration
agents are begining to appear,"
said Proffessor H. T. French,
state leader of farm demonstra
tion at the Oregon Agricultural
College. "While it is impossible
to measure the value of their
most valuable accomplishments
in dollars and cents, reports of
156 agents in the states of the
northern and western parts of
the United States ahow the value
to farmers to be mors than one

1913 in which they carried on
their work these agents visited
40,683 farmers on their own
farms, cooperated in agricultur
al betterment with one half that
number, addressed 6014 meet
ing and organized 757 coopera
tive bodies. They prepared and
published 376 emergency circu
lars, 1174 timely articles for the
press, and wrote 67,033 personal
letters to farmers on local prob
lems. More than 300,000 acres
of field crops were grown under
their direction.
"The agents supervised the
planting and culture ol thousrnds
of acres of orchards, and gave
spraying directions for many
kinds ol trees. They organised
almost 30(H) farms, and made
working plans and crop rotation
systems for almost as many
more. They were directly re
sponsible for the building of 1804
silos and the improvement of
many homes. They assisted in

Dayton, Ohio
Banker A. L. Mills of Portland Explains
Measure in an Address to Business
Men in That City. New System to
be in Working Order to Care for
This Year's Crop Business is Hope
"I do not believe we shall ever
again see such panics as we had
in 1873, 1893, and 1907," said A.
L. Mills, president of the First
Nationaal Bank, addressing the
Progressive Business Men's Club
in Portland recently on the newly
enacted currency law.
Mr. Mills described in plain
language the purpose of the new
currency measure and how it is
expected to work and detailed
some of the steps already taken
to place it in operation.
The currency bill is intended,
he explained, to provide three
principal remedies for existirrg
financial ills: First, a mobiliza
tion of the bank resources of the
country; second, an emergency
currency in time of financial
tret, and third, a system of re
discounting that will at all times
provide greater elasticity to the
nation's currency.
He then related how the. feder
al reserve board, sitting at Wash
ington, is to administer the af
fairs of the new system and of
how the 12 reserve districts, re
cently formed by the board, are
to govern the affairs of Ine imnks
in their respective districts.
In further explanation he up
plied the concrete example of the
way the 12th reserve district in
which Portland is located, now is
being organized. For the pur
pose of effecting this organization
J. W. Newkirk, cashier, and
Henry 1 Corbett. vice president j
of the First National Bank, re-
cently attended a meeting at San
Francisco with officials of four
other banks in this district.
There they formally formed the
new bank and applied to the fed
eral authorities nt Washington
for a charter, permitting: it to !-
gin business. As soon as this
charter is issued all the member
banks in the district will be noti
fied and instructed to pay their
stock subscriptions into the new
The manner of electing the
directors of the regional banks
was further described. Three
sets of three directors each are
provided for. The first set con
sists of "Class A" directors who
must be active bankers; Class B
directors must be business men
within the district and Class C
directors are appointed by the
federal reserve board. They
must live within the district, but
cannot be officers or directors of
any bank, although they are per
mitted to own bank stock.
At a recent preliminary meet
ing in San Francisco, Mr. Mills

explained, it was agree that none
of the Class A or Class B direc
tors should live more the t hi n Bix
hours from San Francisco, bo as
to facilitate the work of organiz
ing and operating the new bank.
He briefly discussed the pro
visions made for establishing
branch banks at Portland, Seat
tle, Salt Lake City and Los An
geles and predicted that these
branches probably will be ready
for business within a few months
after the main bank at San
Francisco is opened. The San
Francisco bank probably will be
ready, he said, in time to handle
thiu year's crops.
"While the new system is ex
pected to be an important factor
in improving business conditions,
the business man, as a matter of
fact, will have no direct relations
with the reserve banks," Mr.
Mills went on.
"He will continue to transact
his business with the individual
banks now in operation, as the
reserve bank cannot take depos
its from others than is stock
holders, nor can the business man
borrow money from the reserve
bank directly. That bank sim
ply is a bank of banks, a central
reservoir for the individual banks
of Hie district, where they will
deposit their funds and where
they will borrow money for their
"Although the individual busi
ness man will have no direct
dealings with the reserve bank,
he will be affected by the re
quirements of the new system,
which provide that all notes will
be made with a fixed maturity
and that interest be taken out in
advance. This is to conform with
the rules that will make redia
countitig possible."
Mr, Mills also predicted that
the system will invite the practice
among business men of taking
short-time notes in settlement of
accounts, as such paper will be
subject to rediscount. It is pro
bable, too, he said, that the ex
changes' now are absorbed fre
quently by the city banks, will
be greatly.

The Government dndge Ore
gon, which has been operating in
the Yaquina River for several
months, has completed a channel
from Toledo to the ocean and the
first ocean-going steamer has
been docked and loaded at that
port. The steamer Bandon, of
San Francisco, loaded a cargo of
tiOO.OOO feet of lumber for the
California city and will hereafter
make regular trips between the

As a result of the interest
which has been aroused in the
raising of corn in Oregon, it is
stated that over 2000 acresof the
cereal has been planted in the
vicinity of Ontario. Most of the
planting was done with carefully
selected, acclimated seed, and as
the growerB are using the most
modern methods in its cultiva
tion, il is expected the yield will
be the best ever turned out in
the state. Over 40 corn cultiva
tors were sold by Ontario mer
chants in one week.
At Amity, Marion County,
there has just been received a
herd of registered Holstein Btock,
bought in Michigan, and said to
be the best lot of dairy cattle in
Oregon. The herd consists of
18 heifers and one registered
bull. The mother of this bull is
said to have a record of vii;i
pounds of butter in a single year.
Cost of the herd including trans
portation, amounted to $5,500.

Take Plentv of Time to Eat.
There is a saying that "rapid
eating is slow suicide." If you
have formed the habit of eating
too rapidly you are most likely
suffering from indigestion or

eventually in serious illness un

in the mouth. Food should be
thoroughly masticated and insali

Reneut Sale at Juntura Wat Complete
Success According to Report in the
Times. Advantageous Market to
Growers as it is Close Home and
Stock Not Caunted From Travel
Juntura'a first horse sale haa
gone down in history as a great
success, judging it from every
standpoint The buyers got the
kind of horses they wanted, all
they wanted, and at very satis
factory prices, and the ranchman
got their prices for all they sold
and the horses they put in the
ring that didn't go at their prices
weren't sold. The sellers were
protected by reserving the right
to name their price, and if the
horse didn't bring that amount,
they were turned back.
There were plenty of horses,
good horses, too as is evidenced
by the prices paid. One Hun
dred and twenty-five were sold
through the ring, and perhaps
two hundred were sold at private
sales in the pens making a total
of approximately three hundred
and twenty-five head sold and
shipped out
There is one commendable thing
about a horse sale at this point,
we are right in the heart of the
range country, the ranchmen are
right at home and if the buyers
are a little bashful and don't
want to pav what an animal is
worth, the raiser can turn his
horses loose and in a few hours
they are at home, and are never
off green feed more than a few
hours. The raiser is practically
to no expense in getting hia hor
ses to a market, and the buy
er gets to see the horses before
they are gaunted up by a two
hundred mile drive and will pay
more for them on that account
Let it be said to the creditof the
men who came to buy, that they
didn't haggle over a dollar, but
when a good horse came into the
ring, they run him up to his true
value in a few minutes. They
wanted the horses and weren't
afraid to pay what they were
worth. Another sale is being
planned for the latter part of
June, but the date hasn't been
definitely set as yet We will

To Aid AH Counties.
In a statement issued by Gov
ernor West he said that the High
way Commission had not declar
ed its intention of giving state
aid only to counties issuing bonds,
but that all counties contributing
to the high-way fund were en
titled to share in the benefits.
The Governor says:
"The Highway Commission haa
not declared its intention of giv
ing state aid to counties issuing
bonds. All counties contributing
to the highway funds are entitled
to share in its benefits. Counties
have a right to build roads with
out bonds if they see fit
"It is the Commission's desire,
however, to put the limited
amount of money at its disposal
into roads at an early date, and
to this end it desires to build
through co-operation in several
of the counties demonstration
roads. It is not likely, however,
that many counties, other than
those that have issued bonds and
thus have funds on hand will be
able to co-operate with the state
just at this time. In time both
the state and other counties will
have additional funds and furth
er co-operation will be possible.
"The state is constructing a
stretch of road in Sherman Coun
ty and has declared its willing
ness to co-operate with Washing
ton county in the construction of
a permanent section of the Rex
Tigardville road. Neither of
these counties have issued bonds.
The bonded counties which have
funds on hand and are in position
to co-operate at this time are
Jackson, Clatsop and Columbia."
