FROM THE STATE
Wheat Price In Morrow County. .
Movement of wheat from Eastern
Oregon to Portland terminals this
fall has been very slow in comparison
with former seasons, farmers appar
ently holding for higher prices. Ac
tual prices to growers around Hepp
ner, as reported to the State Market
Agent's office, ranged from $1.30 to
f 1.35. net, for Bluestem; Club and
Fortyfold, 1.25 to $1.28; Turkey
Red, $1.18 to $1.25. These differences
were mostly on grades and wheat of
good test weight and grade would run
closer in price. For instance, the
$1J8 lot of Turkey Red weighed 62
pounds to the bushel.
Frank Lowden's Prediction.
"I can forsee the day when every
thing produced on the farm for the
markets will be marketed by the far.
niers themselves, through organiza
tions of their own creation."
This prediction was made by Frank
0. Lowden, ex-governor of Illinois
and president of the American Dairy
Federation, at a speech in Oakland

Cal., November 18. And why not?
asks the state market agent. The sur
prising thing is that farmers have so
long permitted the middle interests
to make what profits that are made on
farm products. No other industry of
power would year after year produce
and sell at about coat and permit oth
ers to resell the products at a sixty
per cent advance. There is, no good
reason on earth, says the market
agent, why producers themselves can
not handle their products all the way
through to the consumer. There is
no good reason why they cannot be
their own middle men. When they
do bring this about the bridge be
tween grower and eater can be ma
terially shortened and both classes be
benefitted. Consumption of all farm
products would greatly increase if
prices to the consumer could be low
eredif many of the unnecessary
middle profits and expenses could be
eliminated. If the farmer could re
tain half of the profits that others
make off his products he could make
money. If the consumer could get
the other half of profits in reduced
prices, there would be greatly in
creased buying. When farmers sol
idly organize to sell their own goods
they will have accomplished much for
"Regulating" Grain Gambling.
. The newspapers state that the Chi
cago Board of Trade has agreed to
the plans of Secretary of Agriculture
Jardine, and that wheat gambling
will hereafter be restricted. A regu
lation has been adopted that the
board directors may place limit on
how high or low prices may go, and
that "heavy penalties are provided
for anyone buying or selling above
or below the limits set by the direc
tors." State Market Agent Spence
thinks that this is rather of a re
markable proceeding on the part of
the government. "Supposing that a
gambling house in Portlan . would be
given a license to play poker if the
ante was restricted to two-bits, and
if any of the boys went over the limit
they would be penalised. This is
about the substance of the 'regula
tion' put on the Chicago Board of
Trade; as I see it," he says. "Gamb
ling on grain in Chicago is either all
right or all wroug limiting the
stakes doesn't change it."
Fast Growing in Favor.
Reports from growers, inspectors,
county agents and retail merchants
from different sections of the state
are that the potato grading and in
spection law is fast growing in favor
as the people realize its benefits. The
law simply requires an honest pack
and any honest grower or dealer
doesn't want any more. Growers
compelled to grade their stock now
realize what others have gained by-
doing this for them.

If You Want to
Look Like This
You are going to be disappointed
when you look at the face in this
Advertisement." It will be such
a shock fro'm the type of Faces
you always see in Advertisements.
They generally get some Guys
face to use in a Collar or Un
derwear Ad that looks like he
was just born for that Ad. You
never see him in real life or any
thing that ever looked like him.
These "Bull" Durham people .
conceived the idea of something
new. They felt that you were
tired looking at such handsome
faces in Ads, it was so discour
aging to men who looked at them
because they knew they could
never look like these fellows
themselves. So they wanted a
homely face that would be an
inspiration to other homely men,
(because there is a terrible lot of
hard looking Birds among you
readers). So after looking the
World over they picked on me.
I dont smoke "Bull" Durham,
so the Moral is IF YOU WILL
SMOKE IT, YOU WILL
NEVER LOOK LIKE ME. ,

man not using it.
P. S. There is going to be another
piece in this paper soon. Look for it.
