IN THE HAY FIELD
H Taken Vp Kalainf of
Horaea on Dear Creek
Poitmaster C. E. Harmon retained
Monday from Mb farm In Deer Creek
Vallny near Selma where be had been
for week making a foil hand In the
hay field for the past week. Mr. Har
mon haa a large acreage in alfalfa on
hia farm and the man in charge of bia
faim haa been baring difficulty In ae
ouring handa to help him, owing to
the general aoaroily of men, and Mr.
Harmon arriving while the ontting
waa being done be help until the hay
waa in the barn. He will have about
200 ton of well onred hay.
Mr. Harmon la taking up raialng One
boraea and he ia a member and secre
tary of the Grant Pans Breedera Agio
oiation that owna the fine Ferclieron
horae, Avata, that they bought in the
Beat hut year aoop after he waa im
ported from Franoe. Thia fine borne
had a moat auooeiwful aeaaon and will
have earned about $3000 for hia own
era, making hia purchase a very pro
fitable investment, be having coat de
livered in Grants Pasx $4200.
Mr. Harmon took Avata to hia farm
and he will be there for aome time,
whore he has a large lot to run in so
as to have ample exercise. Mr. Har
mon has nine brood mares on his farm
aud he expeota that they will raise
colts that when four yeara old will
readily aell for f-'OO to 1250 each. He
has Ave colts of tnis year's foaling that
show what flue breeding will da One
colt la a halfbreed Peroheron and the
other four are just common horse.
The datua are all about the aauie aize
yet the Purchernn colt ia now ono
fourth iHrgur than the other colts.
Mr. Iliirtnmi believes that one of the
most proHtable iuduHtries In Itogue
" River Valley Is tho raising of heavy
draft horiea aud he ia backing liix
jortguimit with a larger Investment lu
brood mares aud hay and pasture lamia.
He will increase the number of horses
ou his Deer Creek ranch until the
number is sufllciiut to feed up all the
hay the farm will produce.
Will Enforce Packing Rules.
The Grants Pass Fruit Orowera Un
ion will enforce ita rules strictly and
no wormy apples will be shipped this
Fall and the farmer who desires to set
the highest cash price for his apples
will have to thoroughly spray his treea
within the next week. Tbe codlin
moth is now ready to deposit its eggs
on the apples tbat soon will hatch
and then tbe bosy little worm will
soon make an otherwise perfect apple
fit only for the cull box and hog feed.
Codlin moth does more damage to
apples in the United States than any
other pest yet it is ope of the most
easily controlled pests if the orchard
ists understands how to fight it and
will exert himself. Perfect apples
will bring a good price this fall while
wormy apples will not be worth tbe
picking. It will pay a farmer to care
for his treis, even but a few, for they
will yield' him a larger profit than
he can make by selling hay or cord
wood, or working by day in a mill or
a mine. '
Tle State President Mrs. Additon
in writing to the Union Signal,
after the June election said, "More

mountaina on the east to the Pacific

BIG TIMBER LAND
Oregon Land Co. Sells 500,000
Acres of Old Military
Ownership of almoat one one-hnn-dreth
of tbe area of the state of Ore
gon changed handa last week. After
extended negotiations tbe greater por
tion of the land Included In the old
Oregon Central military road grant
was transferred from the California
and Oregon Land company, of which
Booth-Eelley Lumber company is a
large owner, to a syndicate composed
of eastern and California capitalists.
Approximately, 000,000 aorea are in
cluded in the sale and the considera
tion Involved is about 730,000. 'The
principal purchasers of this tract of
land are the Hunter Land company, of
Minneapolis, Minn., aud Richard
Sykes, capitalist, of Santa Barbara
Cal. Associated with them are the
W. B. S. Trimble company of James
town N. D. , and Andrew E. Johnson,
vice president of the Hunter Land
company and president of the A. E.
Johnson Land and St amship com
pany. The tract sold is a strip of land
running from the Cascade forest re
serve to the Oregon-Idaho boundary, a
distance approximately of 825 miles.
The strip haa a width of twelve miles.
The only portion excluded from the
sale is a strip about 25 miles long,
running through the Klamath Indian
reservation. The purchase of the
tract is declared to be an initiative
step in an extensive colonization pro
jeot. J. W. Newman, who came to Grants
Pass last month from Everett, Wash. ,
has opened a wagon and carriage shop
in tbe rear part of H. Ryan's black

No sickness to report
Eggs at present are 25 cents a dozen.
This ia as healthy a place for poultry
as can be found on tbe Pacific Coast.
Aa Ed Jordan ' and Engeue Reed
were walking along the railroad track
the other day they found a large piece
of iron on tbe track at tbe north end
of the bridge on Brimstone gulch.
Whether it was accidentally dropped
there or placed on the rails with ma
ileious intent ia not known. Aa the
track at that point ia shaded by trees
it might not have been seen by the
engineer aud caused a wreck.
At tile depot here you can see boxen
of poultry piled up. Some has been
shipped in, but the meet of it is
for shi) meot to Grauts Pass. We hold
to the adage tbat it is better to ship
our surplus away than to send away
for our supplies. According to the
population this section ships as much
farm produce as any other part of the
county. We still have a large amount
of land that can be brought under cul
tivation and good homes made by will
ing hauds. 'We need more Eastern
people with nerve, ambition and ener
gy. We can grow evrey thing here
that can be grown outside of the trop
ics ; rgaiu has never failed to give us
big orops; nuts of all kind can be

people here who have traveled far aod
wide and sinoe settling here they have
recovered their old time vigor.

"No sensational or other questional

ou that which is evil, aud much in
