Lime, the Land Renewer. r
By Statt Market Agent.
The state lime plant in the peniten
tiary has a capacity of a carload per
day, and the farmers of the Willam
ette valley and the coast counties
should take this aa fast as it is
(round. In fact the demand should
force the prison plant to double its
capacity, for every ton of it applied
to the land would be an investment.
Since the removal of the lime plant
from Gold Hill to the state prison the
price of ground lime has been reduced
from $6 and $8 per ton to $4.50 per
ton in bulk and $5.50 in sacks, and if
Governor Pierce, the lime board and
others succeed in getting reduced
freight rates, the price will be yet
lowered. This reduction is made pos
sible by prison labor. The prison to
day is a beehive of industry, where
t-very able bodied man of the six hun
dred prisoners is working at profit
tble production in the flax factory,
the lime plant or in other occupa
tions. There is hardly a cropped farm in
"Western Oregon whose production
could not be increased far more than
the cost of the lime applied. The
coils are acid and the lime neutraliies
this condition. Following its appli
cation clover can be grown and thers
is a true saying that where clover
grows anything may be grown.
Two tons to the acre is the general
application and its benefits will last
about five years. The 0. A. C. gives
a simple and inexpensive soil test
for those in doubt as to whether or
not the land needs lime. Light ap
plication of wood ashes, about 500
pounds to the acre, spread in strips
or patches, on land sown to clover is
said to be a thorough test and will
clearly demonstrate the response of
the land to lime.
Farmers do not have to pay cash
for lime. Through trade certificates
from three to six months' credit is ex
tended. The lime may be purchased
and applied in the fall and payment
made the following spring. The sum
mer is the best time to purchase lime,
for during the dry season the lime
rock is free from dirt and mud.
The lime now produced at the pris
on is 96 per cent pure, while that at
Geld Hill was about 80 per cent, yet
at a much higher price. There are
fr.rms in the valley where clover crops
have been doubled after lime had been
applied, and the grain crops follow
ing the clover also doubled. If the
lime cost double its present price its
purchase was an investment. Farm
ers living near the prison go to the
plant and haul out the lime, but far
ther away the usual plan is to order
in carlots through county agents, the
farmers getting together on the pur
chase. Governor Pierce says that if Ore
gon could get the low freight rates
that some other states are given, the
jrice could be considerably lowered
and the benefits would be vast. The
states of Illinois and Virginia have a
rate of one-half cent per ton per mile
granted by the railroads, to lower the
cost to the farms and make its uie
general. At a recent hearing in Port
land before the railroad officials Gov
ernor Pierce showed that the rate
charged on a car load of lime rock
from Grants Pass to Salem was high
er than the rate on a car load of cat
tle from Eastern Oregon to Portland,
the same distance, under a first class
rate. "If we can get lower rates we
will pass it on to the farmers in low
er lime prices," the Governor stated,
"and at the same time the lower rate
will result for the benefit of the rail
roads as well in greater farm produc
tion to be shipped to markets. This
is the way the late Jim Hill, the em
pire builder, used to look at such
propositions. With the present high
rate on the rock into the prison and
then this rate about doubled in the
local rate out to the farms, the ex
pense is too great."
