Farm Electrical Use
Demonstrated at Fair
The real progress In fact finding
In the field of use of electricity on
the farm that has been made In the
last four years formed the central
feature of the Oregon Experiment
station exhibit at the state fair this
year. In these years a quiet but
steady campaign of fact-finding for
future use has been carried on by
the Oregon committee on the Re
lation of Electricity to Agriculture
in cooperation with the experiment
Another Indication of the progress
Oregon has made in this new field
Is the fact that Gorge W. Kable,
project director in this work since
its inception, has just been appoint
ed national rural electric projcet
director in charge of operations in
Maryland near Washington, D. C.
Mr. Kable has been succeeded by
F. E. Price, a graduate of the state
college who has for several years
been extension specialist In soils
and agricultural engineering. He
has been in close contact with the
work of Mr. Kable in the meantime
and will be abl eto continue it much
as it has been developed thus far.
With the extension of power lines
through the country districts the
question of the economic use of
electric power in addition to its
use for home lighting and minor
household conveniences, has been
pressing. Very little machinery
suited to rural electrical use had
been developed. Few persons knew
what operations were practical with
electric power and which were too
Much of this Information has now
been arrived at either here or In
other states where similar work has
been carried on. Thus in the state
fair exhibit an automatic switch
board device shows at a glance the
cost In cents per hour of operating
various electrical driven machines.
Application of electricity to poultry
raising has advanced far, and feed
grinding, hay hoisting, and electric
farm refrigeration are but a few
other operations upon which defi
nite information is now available.

Feeder lambs were scarcely steady
because of sharp declines In fat
lambs during the past two weeks.
Total stocks of meat In storage are
about 95,000,000 pounds less than a
year ago, most of the difference be

and pickled pork.
WOOL and MOHAIR. Domestic
wool markets continued about
steady with prices according to de
mand for particular grades, but for
eign markets judged by results of
the fifth series London sale inclined
to weaken, thus further narrowing
