Poultry flocks of less than 24 hens
or more than 400 were recommended
as best for a poultry side line on

state and must ship or glut the home

METHODS OF SUCCESS.
Yo art often asked be Christian
people, by ministers, church workers
and others to give rales of success
Christian work. Th. following rules
will guarantee success in any Chris
First Absolut loyalty to Christ as
tha Son of God. Loyalty to Christ as
a man is not worth anvthine to vou
but loyalty to Christ as very God of
very uou, tn &avior of men, is essen
Second Absolute obedience to the
leadership of the Holy Spirit as the
inira rerson of ths Trinity.
Third Absolute loyalty to the Bible
as God's Infallible Word. It Is the
supreme authority, it is God's last
word, it is infallible and eternal.
fourth Absolute belief in. adher
ence to, and loyalty in presenting the
full gospel of Jesus Christ as the only
means 01 salvation.
'"tn Incessant prayer Pray
daily, pray continuously, pray might
ily, talk to God.
Sixth Incessant work at ths bus
iness of being a Christian, work at
th business of evangelising the
world, work at ths business of teach
ing the Bible.
Seventh Have a place. Work at
the task assigned you, and remember
that you are working for Christ; that
you are loyal to the church; that you
understand the science of team work
and that you are cooperating with
your fellow Christians in the grestest
program on earth.
Eighth The absolute consecration
of your purse, your power and your
person to the cause of Christ, to the
work of evangelism, and to the build
ing up of the kingdom of God.
These rules will make you a man
worth while, a good citizen, a service
able Christian, and a true witness for
Jesus Christ, and success shall crown
When we talk about oar neighbor
and our brother we are somntimcs
prone to limit the territory. W
speak as if the neighbor were just
across the fence in the other yard,
and we speak of the brother as if
he were someone with whom we came
in daily contact
We lose sight of the limitless field
and of the great fact that, from i
human, social and citizenship stand
point, we are all brothers. We cannot
think in limited terms. We are com
pelled to think in world terms. The
world is so small. Christianity has
reduced its size and has brought the
peoples of the world into our own
Again, it is not the one next to us
who is our neighbor, but it is the one
to whom we can be neighborly, to
whom we can be brotherly. When you
ask the question, "Who is my neigh
bor?" it is to find one to whom you
can be brotherly and to whom you
can be helpful. America cannot be
isolated. She has got to think of the
world. We cannot be isolated in the
different communities in America.
We are compelled to help each other.
The whole of America, every man.
woman and child in America, is com
pelled to think of the Northwest.
This is the spot in which the great
questions of the future are going to
be settled. It is one of the most im
portant and most potential spots in
America today. Schools, universities
and churches must be developed in
order to be able to take care of the
millions of people across the seas.
A great Bible building is to be
erected in which the great fundamen
tal doctrines of Christianity and of
the Constitution of America are to
be taught. It will take a million and
a half bricks at a dollar a brick. Ev
ery friend in America ought to give
at least one brick. Therefore, all
friends throughout America have an
opportunity of being neighbors, and
showing their neighborly kindness,
brotherly love and helpfulness by
sending dollars for this great build
ing at Seattle.
This is only an illustration of how
practical is the doctrine of brotherly
love, neighborly love, brotherly help
fulness, kindness and cooperation.
Let us put it into practice.

was selected to represent the county

esting address in which he st re
that the general understanding of t'u
seriousness of the present agricultur
al situation was indicated by the
presence of bo many persons repre
senting different parts of the state
Dr. Kerr stated that "Markets for
our staples are now world wide, where
once they were entirely local. To meet
the new conditions increasing In com
plexity with the progress of civilitu
ton, there must be reorganisation vi
our agriculture. This has been rer
ognized for a decade or more and far
sighted agricultural lenders have been
urging the necessity of a national ag
ricultural program. The purpose oi
this conference is to consider and dc
temine whether such a program may
not be drafted for Oregon."
President Kerr stated: 4'That the
producers of farm products last year
received only $7,500,000,000 for their
products and that consumers paid
more than $22.500,000 ,000 for said
products. The farmers are not pros
pering; they are struggling against
tremendous difficulties. Conditions
should and no doubt can be improved
in the interest of the farmer and of
the entire state."
President Kerr referred to the
operation of various Oregon interests
the Agricultural Economic Con
ference, all interests being convinced
of the importance of a state-wide pro
gram. He received vigorous applause.
He then introduced Governor Pierce
as the next speaker, who was received
with enthusiastic applause. He con
gratulated President Kerr and the Ag
ricultural College on bringing togeth
er so large an assembly for serious
constructive effort in remedying the
present evils. He said: "The farmer
is in the grip of a system of fixed
prices which often requires him to
go into debt to take up the loss on his
land year by year. I am wondering if
we are not drifting into a period when
the land will be owned by banks and
the government and be farmed by
renters. ' ' Increasing the produc
tion of those articles that you can sell
close at hand, and produce those
things that you can ship in concen
trated form without heavy shipping
costs; eliminate as far as you can
those products which we are obliged
to sell outside of the state. Cut out
wheat raising in the Willamette val
ley and raise it in Eastern Oregon,
nd mcrea.se dairy products, poultry
and hogs. Do this and I believe that
prosperity will return to the farmer
who stays with it."
I believe Governor Pierce's address
merited the prolonged applause it re
At the conclusion of the governor's
address Paul V. Maris, Director of
Extension Service, briefly outlined
the plan of action formulated by the
College, and suggested that each per
son affiliate with the group calcu
lated to discuss his individual problems.
Mr. Barratt joined the livestock
group and Mr. Jones and myself went
with the grain group.
Our limited space will not permit a
full report from a single committee.
But such report is not necessary be
cause a resolution was passed at the
close of the conference authorizing
the Agricultural College to publish a
comprehensive report of the confer
ence in bulletin form for distribution
to those desiring it. Therefore those
desiring a full report may obtain
same from our County Agent as soon
as it is printed.
W. L. Thompson, representative of
the State Bankers' Association, spoke
thirty minutes to the grain "roup ex
plaining the theory, possibilities and
effect of the McNary-Haugen Bill. He
affirmed that the farmers need profits
and not more credit, and urged all in
terested parties to urge our congress
to pass the bill.
