being waged for the measures Oregon farmers want and against
all sorts of schemes that are detrimental to the people and agri
cultural interests of this state.
We have, therefore, made a special clubbing arrangement with
THE OREGON FARMER whereby any farmer or fruit

directly or indirectly in Oregon agriculture, do not miss this
unusual opporturity but send your order in now.
THE OREGON FARMER is the one farm paper which is
devoting itself exclusively to the' farming activities and interests
of Oregon. It has a big organization gathering the news of
importance to farmers, dairymen, fruitgrowers, stockraisers and
