The Times-Herald has late ad

miles of railroad west from
Riverside and that it is to be
built at once. This would bring

The writer has not seen a copy
of the complaint but understands
the complainant will attack the
constitutionality of the law and
try to show the Board has no right
to adjudicate the water rights o

suits of a similar nature it would
seem the Board has such riKht
and while it will delay the matter
the rights will yet be determined
and the people finally know iust
what they are entitled to. It
surely is to be regretted that this

Pat Finds Big Harney
Country is Prosperous
The Juntura Times says: The
writer has just returned from a
trip of some six hundred miles
through the southern end of this
and Harney county, and wish to
say that we found conditions in
every part of the country we vis-
ted in a most flourishing condi
tion. Sheep men are feeling
good about the prices they ob
tained for their wool, and join
with the cattle and horse men in
saying that this is the best grass
year they have ever seen since
coming to the country. The trip
was made by automobile, leaving
Ontario on June 5th, in company
with J. W. McCulloch, who acted
as chauffeur of u own car, go
ing out through Skull Springs,
Barron Valley, Cord and Alber-
son. thence south to the Nevada
line and back via Catlow Valley,
the P Ranch and Burns. On
every hand one can see evidence
of improvement and an increased

State Fish and Game Commission Will
Have Aid From the Government in
Work of Ridding Country of Pests.
Rabbits, Gophers That are Menace
To Farmer to
E. W. Nelson, of the United
States biological survey, notified
William I.. Finley, of the state
fish and game commission, yes
terday that the $6000 item rec
ommended by Senator Chamber
lain was still included in the agri
cultural appropriations bill when
it came out from the conference
committee, says the Journal.
This $6000 will be used in co
operative work by the state game
department and the biological
survey and will incidentally put
Oregon on record as being the
only state, with the exception
of North Dakota, that has
given the federal government
material assistance and entered
into cooperative work of this
kind. It. was largely through
the efforts of Mr. Finley that the
appropriation was made.
Among the problems waiting
to be solved and on which inteli
gent action can now be taken,
Mr, Finley states, are several of
first importance to the homestead
er. There is the extermination
of jackrabbits in the eastern
counties, the determination of
the species of gopher that is a
menace to the farmer's fields. In
the past year Tillamook county
hus paid out in bounties $4000
for gophers.
An examination of the crops of
pheasants killed in the grain lit Ids
has shown their food to consist
principally of insects and in only
one instance was any grain found
and that proved to be barley from
the previous year's crop. So it
may be that the pheasant is be
ing wrongly accused and that his
work is beneficial, not destructive
There is also the census of bird
life to be taken and by which it
ia determined to what extent
game and song birds increase
under federal protection as given
by the migrajory bird law re
cently put into effect By mak
ing close observations on specifi
ed areas for a number of years
it is believed that a close census
can be secured. It is found that
the best time to make a count on
any area is shortly before and
after sunrise, in the mating sea
son, as at that time all the male
birds are in full song and can be
easily located.
At the present there is a party
of federal and state scientists
camped on the McKenzie river
engaged in ru,akjng a thorough ll
survey pi fa una,! lifw of the Wil-

hold a cherry fair on July 10. A
Norwegian family, the Stack

great cherry industry at an alti
ude of 3,000 feet in the foothilt

of the Blue Mountains. At this
high altitude cherries, while not
so large or lucious as some raised
on lower levels, have remarkable
keeping qualities and the output
will be disposed on in carloads in
the Eastern markets.
O. M. Plummer. general man
ager of the Pacific International
Livestock Exposition, announces
that the National Duroc-Jersey
Record Association, of Peoria,

livestock show to be held in Port
land this fall, thus placing this
event in the ranks with the other
large stock shows of the United
States, a recognition which has
not heretofore been made.
That the population of Oregon
is increasing very rapidly is indi
cated by the fact that an unusual
number of commodities have
found it necessary to erect new
school buildings to relieve con
gestion. New schools arc being
built at Amity, Molalla, Newport,
Astoria and Vida, and in addition,
several large school buildings will
be erected in Portland before the
end of the year.
Within the last week " carloads
of Oregon woul were shipped
from Madras to Boston. The
shipment aggregated 290,000
pounds and was sold at prices
somewhat in advance of those of
last year.
Farmers Should Know
Their Insect Enemies
Oregon farmers must learn to
know their insect enemies before
they can combat them so success
fully as to stop the enormous leak
due to their ravages. The infor
mation and material that will en
able them to identify the most
common and destructive pests
are easily within their reach and
may be had by Bimply writing
for a copy of the Biennial Crop
Pest Keport. issued by the Ore
gon Station. A condensed edi
tion of this report has also been
issued by the Extension division
of the Agricultural College and
may be obtained by writing for
"Insect Pests of Truck and Gar
den Crops," to Extension Divis
ion. O. A. C, Corvallis.
"In my work as school agricul
turist." says a member of the
N tension, "I was able by means
of the Biennial Report to Identify

Descriptions are plainly written
and the various stages of the

are printed in the natural colors

pictures any farmer in Oregon
can soon learn just what pest is
attacking his crops.

Dunkard Colony to Locate
Homes in Central Oregon
The names of more than 800
families who are interested in
Central Oregon and may come
there to locate were secured last
week at Seattle during the na
tional convention of the Dunkard
Church by I. W. Gray, agent for
the Oregon and Western Coloniza
tion company, says a Portland
Mr. Gray returned from Seat
tle yesterday, and in Portland
on his way home to Redmond he
reported that he had achieved
great success in his campaign to
interest the thrifty and prosper
ous Dunkards, whose religion
does not permit them to take up
the bankruptcy law.
Most of the delegates to the
convention were middle aged or
elderly people and Mr. Gray says
that it would be a hard thing to
induce them to leave their pros
perous eastern homes, but he
found them anxious to make pro
vision for the rising generation.
Many of these people expressed
to Mr. Gray their desire to send
the young people to the great
western country.
To the 800 whose names and
addresses were secured, and who
are located in nearly every state
of the union with the middle
western states predominating,
literature descriptive of the Cen
tral Oregon country, and particu
larly of the military road grant
lands that form a narrow belt
across the entire state in an east

Stock Men Meet at
Boise and Talk Shop
The executive officers of the
Oregon Cattle & Horse Raisers
Association met in Boise last
week and explained to the rais
ers of Idaho the objects of the
organization and as a result it is
likely the scope of its activities
will be enlarged. The Capital
says of the meeting in part:
For the benefit of Idaho cattle
and horse raisers present, Mr.
Correal, tbe secretary, told of the
work being done by Gerry Snow,
brand inspector of the associa
tion, and located at the Portland
stock yards, whose duty it is to
inspect the brands of all cattle
and horses arriving and if the
shippers cannot show bills of
sale or that they are in legiti
mate possession of the animals,
possession is taken by the inspec
tor, the animal is sold on the
market and the money goes to
the executive board of the asso
ciation and the ownership of the
animal established and the money
turned over to the owner. It
was reported that the brand in
spector had saved the association
members a goodly sum of money
since taking the position.
The next annual session of the
association is to be held at Prine
ville at which time a new name
for the association is to be chos

Visitors' Day at Demonstration Station.
Prof. Scudder and Possibly French
of O. A. C. to Make Addresses and
Inspection of Crops. Large Crowd
Should Greet The Agriculturists
There is a disposition upon the
part of the citizens of this city
not to allow anything to conflict
with the big Visitor's Day pro
gram to be held at the Experi
ment Station tomorrow after
noon, therefore there will be no
baseball game as had been con
templated by the boys. It is a
matter of regret that Prof. Het-
zcl, director of the extension
work, cannot be present as it had
been arranged. Prof. Hetzel
writes that he is threatened with
a nervous breakdown and his
physician will not permit his tak
ing any active work at this par
ticular time. He was to have
delivered the oration in Burns
today but had to cancel this also.
Prof. Scudder of the O. A. C.
will be present and will address j
the people as will also others. It '
is to be a gathering to listen and '
observe, a trip over the farm is a
part of the program and The
Times-Herald feels confident that
nope will regret the trip who go
and see what has been done on
the demonstration farm. It will
be a matter of education not only
to the farmer but everv individ
ual there, as we are all interest
ed in agriculture.
In view of the weather condi
tions that have prevailed during
the growing season this vear the
crops on the Station farm will be
a revelation to manv who have
not been out. The work accom
plished by this station has done
much for the advancement of
agriculture in Harney county and
it is yet in its infancy so far as
the real benefits are concerned.
That it means the success of pro
fitable farming in this big coun
try all admit. The fanner no
longer needs to be in doubt as to
his future in the line of agricul
ture as this experiment station is
where things are tried out and
the man who follows the advice
and watches the success or fail
ure of the various crops there is

going to make a success on his
own land.
This meeting is preliminary, or
rather just an extra, and has
been arranged merely to help
the farmer who can come and
see and listen. Prof. Scudder is
to be here on other business in
connection with the work and it
is also possible H. T. French,
leader of the field work of the
Extension service will also be
present. This is not the "Round
up" suggested heretofore but is
a meeting that will bring results
and help to stimulate interest in
the big all day meeting that is
planned for the latter part of this
month or the first of next.
The Times-Herald hopes to see
not only every farmer who can
possibly come there tomorrow,
but also hopes to see every auto
mobile in Burns out there with a
load of town people who should
see what is being done. Every
one is sure of a welcome and
they will be given an opportunity
to go over the farm.
