with the Bureau of Animal Industry.
U. S. Department of Agriculture, tho
fitntc Superintendent of Public In
itrue, tho county school superinten
dents, teachers and parents.
The Corn Club members are raising
profitableyields of corn where it was
thought impossible to grow it a few
J oars ago, nnd it is hoped the impor
tance of feeding crops to live stock
on the farm may be emphasized ia this
l'ig Club work.
It would be well if all members of
Corn Clubs would enroll i.x the Pork,
Production work and thus loud a hand
in the endeavor to improve the quali
ty of swine in Oregon, and at the same
time learn how to make more rapid
r.nd economical gains in hog feeding.
There will be two distinct divisions
of tho Pig Club project. Division 1,
tho euro and management of a brood
low and littor of pigs. Division 2,
tho feeding and care of one or more
piils from weaning time for period of
( t least four months.
The object nmong forming Pig
Clubs among tho boys and girls may
l.o briefly stated as follows:
1. To stimulate an interest in
twine production and to teach the boys
a. id girls how to raiso better and
cheaper hogs by the uso of improved
blood nnd tho growing of forago
2. To increnso the number of hogs
i Used on the fnrm in order that the
meat for tho homo nnd that required
to feed the extra farm labor may bo
produced instead of being bought.
II. To complement the work of the
loy's and girls' Corn Clubs by showing
thorn how they can profitably sell
their corn through hogs.
1. To encourage tho homo curing
of meats on tho farm.
C. To tcucii tho boys how to judgo
bogs and to Rclcct them for breeding
or market purposes.
(I. To encourage the growing of
forago crops and discourage tho use
7. To instruct the boys and girls
in a practical way in tho nuinngcmuiit
feeding, sanitation, nnd prevention of
diseases of swine, all of which Infor
mation proves valucuhlo with respect
to other forms of livestock work.
8. To give the boys and girls a
means of earning some money for
themselves while at home.
9. To instill in tUe lxys and girls
vhil young a love of animals which
will resut in their taking more inter
est in fnrm life, and to furnish them
at the same lime some work which will
in a practical way, give an insight in
to the business side of farm life and
incite in them n desire to struggle for
: ml attain success.

Early Coal Milling in Orcgo
Coal was first noted in the Coos
Bay rogion. Oregon about 60 years
ago, Prof. J. S. Newberry having re
ported in 1855 that the coal deposits
of Coos Bay had began to attract at
cntion. Tho first cargo was shipped from
tho Empire Basin, but the discovery
of coal near tho head of Coos Bay
soon transferal the point of produc
tion to Newport, which remained the
principal mine until within the last
decade, sinae the Beaver Hill mine
has been more successfully managed
and become thee hief producer. The
' first record of coal production is con
tained in the census report, when 43,
205 short tons were mined.
