Some people jumped at conclu
Bions about the fair premium mon
ey and some ill feeling has been
engendered. Anyone who knows the
infinite patience necessary to get
the premium checks made out has
a feeling of sympathy for the un
fortunate treasurer. Some errors
were made and because Mrs. Isom
and the treasurer went away soon
after the fair it is taking longer
than usual to rectify them; but
please do not judge harshly, and
assist in spreading false rumors
about, for if you won a prize you
will get your money eventually.
The rumor that there is not enough
money for the premiums as so much
went for the grange booths was
perfectly absurd and without foun
dation. Please remember that the
members of the fair board spent
days and days of their time and
strength, gallons of gasoline all for
the benefit of the fair without one
cent of recompense, and do not be
so quick to find fault Also spare

was not even a member of the
board and who has received the
benefit of all the disgruntled prize
winners for that which she had
nothing to do, but was kind enough
to give out the checks that were on

WHY JULIUS L. MEIER?
THE time has come for a change
in Oregon's political and econ
omic affairs. It is time to place in
the executive chair at Salem a gov
ernor who has the independence,
the courage, the integrity and the
ability to brifig about the success
ful execution of a comprehensive
and constructive program of vitally
needed reforms. Future prosperity
of the state and the welfare of its
people depend largely on the man
selected at the coming election to
take over the reins of government
Without an aggressive, fearless
executive of unquestioned integrity,
the people of Oregon can hope for
little from the state house during
the next four years. Those splendid
qualifications can be found in Julius
L. Meier, one of Oregon's leading
business men who was nominated
independent candidate for governor
at a state-wide mass meeting at
tended by 5,000 voters.
Mr. Meier brings into a political
campaign a new type of candidate.
He is primarily a business man. His
interests have been far from the
field of politics as he has builded a
mercantile institution second to
none in the west
Mr. Meier was drafted Into this
campaign. His business associate
and intimate personal friend for 35
years, the late Senator George W.
Joseph, won the republican nomin
ation for governor of Oregon on a
platform of defiance to the power
interests throttling state develop
ment. When he died before attain
ing the honors the state was about
to confer upon him before he had
his opportunity to carry out the pol
icies for which he had made an up
hill fight for many years, the people
of Oregon looked for a man to take
up the fallen standard. The repub
lican state central committee scrap
ped the Joseph platform and nom
inated their recent chairman. The
supporters of Mr. Joseph were forc
ed to look elsewhere for a man to
carry on his principles.
They found that man In Julius L.
Meier. The state which had been
kind to him, in which he built up a
personal success, the people of that
state whose cooperation had con
tributed to his outstanding record,
were in need of a man of courage
and independence. His closest
friend for many years was gone but
his work was unfinished. Julius
Meier believed he owed a service to
Oregon its people and their late
champion. He agreed to rum
The issues have been clearly de
fined. Of primary importance is
the need for federal, state and mu
nicipal development of water power
that cheap power may be made
available for domestic and indus
trial use. This program of Mr.
Meier's is being fought by lavish
expenditure of funds for propagan
da by the power interests.
There are many other principles
tor wmcn ne stands but in the fore
front is his pledge of strict economy
in public expenditures and a busi
ness government with efficiency the
sole criterion for employment of
public servants. Only a real bus
iness man such as Mr. Meier can
make such a pledge and live up to
it It is more than words with him.
The emoluments of the office mean
nothing to Mr. Meier. He is in the
race solely from a desire to serve
the people of Oregon and to carry
out the principles of his lifelong
The people of Oregon have offered
to them in the candidacy of Julius
L. Meier an opportunity to obtain
as general manager of the state's
business one of its outstanding bus
iness leaders. It is a most unusual
offer and places in their hands the
possibility of bringing into public
service the same high degree of
honesty, courage and efficiency
which makes for success In private
life. The future of Oregon depends
on the voice of the electorate No

Nearly $300,000,000 worth of barn
yard manure is wasted annually in
the United States, according to re
ports to Oregon Experiment station.
Although the Oregon Experiment
station knows of nothing to indi
cate that molded clover hay of the
red, alsike or crimson varieties is
injurious to livestock, it suggests
that farmers who suspect such hay
may try it out on rabbits before
feeding it to the dairy herd. The
rabbits will react the same as cattle
with less monetary loss. Spoiled or

In this period of low prevailing
prices for wool and mutton the wise
flock owners are attempting to in
crease income and lower overhead
by rigid cullings, endeavoring to
raise more and better lambs from
fewer ewes, rather than by using
cheaper rams and neglecting such
important items as proper flushing
of -ewes before breeding, says the
Oregon Experiment station.
Due to the fact that they have
less capacity both in stomach and
intestines than most farm animals,
pigs require a greater proportion
of concentrated foods for fattening.

of the bulky feeds those contain
