A rural conference that will deal
with all phases of farm life will be
held at the Oregon Agricultural Col
lege this fall. Dates have not been
set vet, due to desire to avoid noSBible
conflicts with other state gatherings.
. The farm home will bo studied at
the coming conference. It is expected
to have excursions run from various
parts of the state, bringing represen
tative farmers in large numbers.
Experts on jural problems will tain
and teachers and clergymen will give
sngaestions as to how country life
may be made more pleaBant and profit
able. The gathering is being arranged by
Prof. Ralph D. Hetzel, director of
extension at the colleee and he hopes
to make it comprehensive in soope
and expects the results will be help
ful. Oregon has contributed the tallest
flaa pole in the world to the Panama
Paoific Exposition. The stick meas
ures 25 feet in height and was sent to
the Astoria Centenial last Snmmer.
The pole was stowed iu a log raft and
taken to San rrancisco. Portland
people have promised a flaa, 50 x 100
feet in size to fly from this big staff.
Picking of the Rogue River Valley
fruit cron is now under wav and it is
the bigeest in the history of this fam
ous section. It is estimated . there
will be from 125 to 150 cars of pears
shipped this season and from 500 to
600 cars of apples, all of fine quality.
Investigations without end have
been directed at rural life and the end
is not yet, but now comes the Govern
ment with its announced intention of
muckraking the cities, and they need
it more than the country ever did. A
survey is to be mad of urban life
with a view of solving come of toe
problems that are found in every
municipality. A government official
who passed through Portland the past
week told of the plan and savi a great
municipal exhibit will probabjy be
gathered for the Panama-Pacific Ex
position. A small forest of fruit trees has
been donated by members of the Nur
serymen's Association of the Pacific
Coast as special prizes to be given at
the Pacific North west Land Products
show. The trees will be kept in good
condition bv the nurserymen and de
livered upon the order of the manage
ment of the land show at planting
time next Spring.
Flax will make quite a showing
this year in Oregon, according to re
ports from those sections where the
crop has been planted. Plantings
made in the Willamette Valley last
spring are looking exceptionally well
and experts say it is as good flax as
ia usually seen. It is believed there
is a great future in the Pacific North
west for the flax industry. About
5,000 acres have been planted to this
orop this year.

liminary Show along these lines and
after selecting the best boy and best
girl in its community the babies and

noted thysioiana ,to be tbe beat in the
State of Orpcon. would attract more
attention to that locality than thou
sands of dollars spent in advertising.

Show. Any ehild may re brought to
