J. E. Wheeler, n dnlrymnn of Ho
quinrn. Wnsli., who has boon visiting
various' sections of tho vnlloy for
some dnyfl is much interested in the
possibilities of tho ilmiy buslr.crr
here on account of our superb cli
mate in nil seasons of tho year, lie
regards it ns superior in mnny re
spects, granting that we shall soon
hnvo irrigation to enable the fanners
to produce an abundance of tho right
kind of feed for the dairy herd, to
most dairy regions ho has visited this
"The comfort of the cow of the
dairy herd," he nays "must he tnken
into consideration when one figures
on obtaining the best results from
her in the production of butter fat.
That fact causes us to observe that
the Rogue Hiver, country has one ex
traordinary advantage in the matter
01 climatic conditions. Where se
vere weather conditions arc frequent
the dairy herd requires more feed-
and it must be of the proper hind in
n balanced ration.
"The fact that your valley ,is free
from radical changes in that respect
timt that you can produce here, under
irrigation, nn immense yield of tho
best hinds of feed of a great variety,
makes it an attractive dairy region.
Your sugar beet proposition suirgesls
an addition of u large quantity of a
Kiiperior feed as a part of a general
ration that mav soon bo made. Beet
pulp will double the feeding vnluu of
your alfalfa if properly mixed with it.
Its content of carbohydrates makes
it nn especially good dairy feed with
alfalfa and linseed meal or soy bean
meal. That combination, adding to it
occasionally a ounntity of succulents,
cannot be beaten. AH of these you
can produce here in great abundance.
Conditions I'aroinlM'l Hero
"In many of the 'outride counties'
I find dairymen ,jut dcvelooiutr a
knotvledue of the business on modern
lines. Lack of that information has
caused dairy feeders to operate at
loss. Those conditions are being im
proved in Jacksoii county, but the im
provement will be most marked in
progress when you shall have obtain
ed water with which to irrigate the
farms and pastures for the produc
tion of better feed in greater quan
tity," concluded Mr. Wheeler.

This is going to be the biggest sea
son in skating the country has seen
in twenty years.
So says Jtilinn T. I'itirgcruld, new
president of the Western Sknting ns-
sociation. Here arc some of his rea
sons he gives:
The Western association has mem
bers in every state from Pennsylvania
to the Pacific coast.
The association has, for the first
time in a long while, money to spend
on big tournaments.
One skater will be paid .fSOO a week
For the first time in history pro
fessional whalers will travel on a cir
cuit nw ballplayers do.
The circuit is composed of Pitts
burg, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, St.
Paul, Seattle, Wash., and Portland,
Or. There are big rink in these cit
ies and joint skating and lioekoy
events arc to bo held.
Hockey has become a erase on the
Pacific coat and count teams nre
playing some of the fastest hockey in
The skater who is to he pnid $800
a week more than the star ballplay
ers gel is Oscar Mathicscn of
Christiana, Xorwny. Hurley David
son, so long devojed to roller skat
ing, will return to the ice game, and
all thf big champs, amateur and pro
fcftHionnl, are booked for big races in
Fitzgerald, who is back of the big
boom in tho ico apart, has been pro
moting sknting events twenty-seven
years. Hosidos being head of the
Western association, he is n member
of the hoard of control of the Inter
national association. He can tell the
name and record of every skater that
ever appeared in competition nnd
anything else nnyoue wants to know
about the ice sport. He's a human

Jackson county is n cluster of
ncncoful communities, maintaining re
ligiously an attitude of neutrality in
all this warlike fuss and its attend
ant horrors. Therefore, it occasion
ed more than a mild degree of sur
prise when a communication wns re
ceived from the National Arms com
pany offering war tmccs for all the
.30-30 cartridges wo could spare, and
added that it could use nil of our
seven-millimeter cartridges, .30-10
cartridges and .303 cartridges.
Kogue Hiver valley is a magnificent
agricultural and fruit district, fumed
also for its dairies nnd livestock, its
mines nnd mineral waters. The pro
per uso of all of these things is con
ducive to pence. Rut we have never
undertaken to produce nny of these
munitions of war, believing that they
arc not indigenous to tlio soil of n
law-abiding nnd pence-loving com
munity. Not being in league with tho manu
facturers of war and war weapons,
wc will have to pass up this oppor
tunity to shnro in their profits, which
already hnvo run into the billions.
