It hits taken. Western Orccou ucarly
(0 years to loam the siuiple fact that
the country iit better adapted for the
production nnd niaintonanoo of live
stock than for either fruit-Krowiug or
general farming, anil that ita 'bost
hold" nnd its best futuro lio in the
development of its herds aud ill pro
motion of tho industries which rest
upon tho stock-breeding and atock-
Jkeoping. Tliero havo boon reasons
wliy tins fact which now apiH-ars so
plain, has been alow in impressing
itself upou the general mind. The
pioneer period, which lasted practical
ly until lMiiS, when the first railroad
found its way op the Willainolto Val
ley, taught us little in an industrial
sense excepting that tho climate was
mild and the soil uiarvelously fertile,
aud that anything planted iu the
ground would grow if it had half a
chance. The second period, which
lasted from LSiiS until tho early '80's,
taught us nothing, since there wui no
commercial market for anything but
wheat, and therefore no motive for
experimenting in oilier forms of pro
duction and no menus of determining
relative commercial values.
It was not until tho completion of
the Northern Pacilio Hailroad, by
which we were brought into touch
with tho commercial world, that there
was any uintivo for branching out
into a varied industry excepting upou
such narrow scale as was necessary
to supply tho local demands. When
the era of wider markets opened, the
effort to meet the new conditions was
boldly made, but without anything
approaching a true knowledge of the
limitations of our situation. Wo wore
deceived by the demonstrated fertility
of tho soil, by tho mildness of the
climate, and by the results of the sea
son of Fpcciul advantage, into the'
theory that Oregon could beat the
world in almost everything. We went
into fruitgrowing, and, excepting in
apples, iu especially fortunate locali
ties mo did not beat the world; and it
was the same with a good many other
lines of production. We found that
while in s)h'cial seasons onr prunes,
cherries and peaches wero supremely
line fruit, there could be no depend
ence upon the product year iu aud
year out. Oftentimes the rains per
sist so late in the spring as to wash
the blossoms from the trees ; oftentimes
they come so early in the fall as to
cause (lib fruit to rot at the pit before
it ii ri i) fur picking. Wo found
that while our tenderer fruits fresh
from the tree, are more lueious than
the fruits of California, they havo not
the tonghui'ss of skin and the strength
of fiber which enables them to "stand
up" under long transportation; in
other words, that while immediately
aud intrinsically better than the
California fruits, they havo not the
keeping' quality which ut this long
distancu from market is essential to
Ami iu relation to general farm
product ion it ilawtud i ) on us at Inst
that iu comparison withthc agricul
tural Middlii West we are handicapis-d
by the relative shortness of our work
ing season. The rains last too late in
the spring and cotuu too soon in the
fall to give time enough for the fann
er to do his work or the land to de
velop its crops ; and due to this fact
there are many things in which the
Oregon fatmers must work at a dis
advantage whenever lie has to meet
tlio comjKtition of other countries
there the working and crop season is
longer. For years the fact was cited
that Minnesota eggs, Illinois hams
and Inwa poultry sold hi our markets
at prices our own js'oplo could liot
meet, and the fact was charged
against the Willamette Valley lurmers
to their disendit; and It was long be
fore we reali.ed that it was not lack
of industry or thrift on the jmrt of
our farmers, but the shortness of our
working season, which made competi
tion dillicult ir i m J x ;-c i b 1 1 . during
part of each y-ar.
Hut the conditions which shorten
our working season and so put us at
a disadvantage in Binn'-Jres; cts con
tribute to our ndraiitago iu others.
Much rain nukes much grass. And
much gras.s is a certain foundation lor
the stick business And for live
stock and its products the demand is
insatiate. I inmost ic auiuuils thrive
in all the wcuilicis known to this
ri'Uiitry, uml its long hnsoti of rain
puts no limitation usin the luliors
ot tic stock business. Tho sos k in
dustry is one iu which our working
season covers or may lie iiutdo to
cover every day in the year, aud to
which our moist climate is not a
drawback, but on the other hand all
amazing aid. And under these condi
tions it is not surprising that energy
and capital are seeking the business.
Within tlio just fivo years the nuin
lier of cows in the valley has been
more than doubled. Lands longcroji
d to wheat with jssir returns have
Ir i n given to jmsturi) and liaru ad
vanced in wilue. Forage r-rojis, of
which until lately even our most
jiroj,Tessiv agriculture knew noth
ing, are being widely cultivated; and
as the capabilities of the country for
feed jirisluctiou develop there is a
jfcitural disposit ion to multiply tin
nsmlsrs and the variety of herbs.
I It U found that there is more jimflt
in feeding the grain product of a
ill.uriette alley farm than lu
wiling it in the market; and from
this condition it is but a su p to the
inimrtut ion of cm in feed from the
regions east of the mountains, "l he

Western Oregon is counted on nowa
days as a source of beef supply. - The
country for tho first time in its history

In brief, the livestock industry has
become ouo of the . largo interests pf
the country ; aud under this industry,
which is making coustaut and heavy
advances, tho country is more rroa
jxrou8 than it has been at any other
period in its history. It bus found
a departmeut of production in which
the supjily can never crowd the de
mand; to which it is specially
adapted by nature ; iu which its work
ing season is not curtailed by the
earliness, the lateness nor tho persist

EUREKA MINE HUMMING.
Tho new Eureka mine, out on Sol
dier creek is proving to bo a "hum
mer. " It was oiinijuiod and started
up but a few mouths ago but lu that
brief time it has demonstrated the
fact that it is a projicrty of worth and
that tho managers judged wisely
when they tint iu tho magnificent
plant that is now doing duty ut the
mine, lhe jirojierty is illuminated
by electricity supplied by the mine's
own excellent plant. A ten-stamp
mill is kept iu operation night mid
day. Two concentrators aud other
machinery arrived hero this week for
tho Eureka mid aro being carried out
to the mine. Manager tie Varilla
states that tho oro of the Eureka looks
Is'ttcr as it is tapped at greater depth.
They have enough to keep them busy
for a decade.
AT THE GREENBACK MINE.
Several six aud eight-horso teams
aro engaged iu hauling iu tho heavy
machinery for tho new 20-stamp mill
of tho Greenback niiuo on Grave
creek. Superintendent Thompson in-
formed us that that they would soon
havo tho machinery all in place and
tho new and big battery would bo
crushing the ore of tho deep levels of
the mine in a few days. The old
mill, which sits farther up Greenback
mountain, will bo reduced to five
stamjis during the winter and will be
used us a custom mill only, Mr.
Thoinjisou states that they have
enough oro above the 800-foot level to
keeji tho new mill ' busy night und
day for tho next 20 years. Above this
level also it is estimated there is $1,-
000,000 iu sight. The Greenback pro
duces from t:i,00 to f!0,00 monthly,
or ut least this was the production of
the mine before the present changes
were lnaile. With the many Improve
ments that havo been made thu prop
erty will produce far more than this.
PROGRESS AT GOLD DUG.
Tho interior aud outer workings of
the Gold Hug mine are now brilliantly
illuminated by electricity supplied by
the plant recently installed at the
protiorty. New drills, concentrators
and compressors aro also doing duty
at the Gold Bug. Tho managers of
tho jirojierty aro jmzzled over tin
water supply question. The mine and

JOSEPHINE'S GOLD OUTPUT.
Iu summiu up tlio total output of
gold from tho mine of Josephine
county for the jiast year, a Courier
representative Is led to belicvo that it
will be at least 45jior cent greater this
season than it was last. Tho total
output of tho mines of Josephiue
county last season which Jiractically
covers tho entire mineral district of
southern Oregon was tl,05J,200.
This year it will be at least $2,500, -000.
The United States mint returns
may not show this much but southern
Oregon, liko Eaker county and the
mineral fields of eastern Oreon, does
uot receive duo credit for its total
output of gold. Down hero a number
of the mines ship much of their ores
to tho California smelters and those
people scud iu their returns with the
entire nmonut credited to California,
notwithstanding the fact that much of
it camo from Oregon mines. If the
statistio makers of tho Portland
lajiora, aud others who aro anxious
to sco Orcgou shown up as it should
be, wcro us careful in getting their
estimates of the vast output of the
easteru and southern Oregon mines, as
they are in gumming up the jirodttcts
of the farms and the forests, the

this section of the statu that the great
est advancement has been made this
past summer, and that tho greatest
activity is manifest at tho present

that one of the best things Oregon has

said that our present trade will) Japan,
with only -10,000,000 or people, is as

heavy increase in the consumption of

18 years ago; a two-story building, ou

fresh jiaint, nice, now jiajier aud
pleasing decorations in form of jxit

DISO GRAMOPHONES AND
Perfection In Diso Graphnplionos
aud Flat Records was quickly achiev
ed by the Columbia Phonograph Com
pany, the ploueers aud leaders in the
talkiug machine art, when it demon
strated the woudorful possibilities of
the flat iudostruotiblo records. Up
to.that time nothing important had
boon accomplished. Tho macliiuos
were faulty and tho records were not
in the same class with tho cylindrical
records used ou the graphophoue. A
knowledge of how to make disc re
cords aud the proper material for
which to mako them seemed to be en
tirely lacking. Tho wide exiwrienco
of tho record departmeut of the
Columbia Phonograph Company en
abled it to grasp the true principles
underlying tho making of .diso re
cords, and the lirst jirodnct was a
great deal better than anything that
hud been accomplished by others.
With the lapse of time the improve
ment that has como with practice lias
placed the Columbia Disc Records
far in advauoe of all others. They
are characterised by smoothness,
sweetness, clearuess aud naturalness.
Aud whilo preserving all these de
sirable qualities they aro tho loudest
records on the market.

Tho Oregon hop market opened last
week with 2o cents quoted for choice
hojis. Not all the dealers are offer
ing that price, but tho sales made last
week show that there is a demand for
Oregnns at that figure. About 200
bales of Chehulis hops, f00 bales of
Yakimas and T.'iO bales in Polk aud
Marion counties have changed hands
at 25 cents. Iu California, no choice
hops havo been put upon the market
at less than 25 cents, und in Washing
ton 24 to 25 cents lias been asked for
practically all choice goods. The
qnotiitiou of Const hoiis iu New York
