Several of the farmers are planning
to put in a small acreage of asparagus
this fall. Asparagus is one of the
most productive crops that can be
grown here. The soil and climate
seem naturally adapted to it and it
usually comes early enough so that it
doesn' tconfiict with other crops and
it is one of the best money makers
there is. If enough farmers would
plant it we could no doubt ship with
the Hermiston association eventually
and realize good returns on the labor
and investment. Let's hear from
more of the farmers about it, please

laugh both with and at Jack Gorham

Jack and Bobby are demit members of
the I. 0. 0. F. and when a fine ap
pearing elderly man driving a big
Packard car and accompanied by a
sweet motherly looking woman gave
Jack the I. 0. 0. F. sign and explained
that he had lost his wallet containing
his money, lodge papers and a valu
able mortgage, Jack and Bobby, al
ways polite, were glad to loan a bro
ther in distress the $15 which would
take him to Spokane, his destination.
He would return he money as soon as
he reached Spokane. The gentleman
was also an Elk and a Mason. Tern-
pus fugits! No money came and Jack
wrote to the secretary of the I. O.0.
F. and the reply was that this afore
said gentleman of scholarly mein had
been having the finest vacation im
aginable at the expense of just sucn
good hearted chaps as Bobby and Jack
and they were unable to locate him
as the game was worked only in the
small towns. The pleasant memory is
the hearty handclasp and the remark
"Well, it certainly is a pleasure to
meet a couple of boys like you," and
the fact that they were touched for
only $15 when they would as gladly
and willingly parted with $25.
