GOOD SIDE LIKE TO FfilTtT GROWING
( reasjrry flan ('aivaaiajr the Valley
m lt. reslf aCo-ireraUre
Thna. .1 llarlfluon nf lllati a
Mont., Is in the valley canvassing the
business men and farmers as !to the
advisability nf start mu a oo operative
oieaniery in Mood liver. He ripre
seucs tne Hastings luilustrlal oomna
ny, ol Cblt'Hiio, who manufacture aud
establish creamery plants. Mr. Thorn
as nag just finished putting In
creamery at Oufur, aud says that they
are well pleased with the prospects at
that place. There is no question as
to tne pro tits of a good oieaniery In
Hood Hirer. The nrioe of butter Is
always high here, and the bulk of it
baa to be shipped In from oreamerles
In other parts of the state. It would
take at least 200 oows to furnish oteam
enough to keep a moderate sized plaut
ruining at a pi out, and there may be
some question as to whether tuere is
that many oows in the valley that
could lie made tributary to a cream
ery, whose product could be secured
for a creamery. The Mount Hood
ooii n try is more interested in a prop
osition of that kiud than the lower
valley, as they have considerable hay
and pasture laud In the upper valley
that is not given up exclusively to
raising fruit. However, there aie
many farmers near town who keep one
or more oows, and could spare more
or Jobs cream, and many make tbeii
own butter who would no doubt be
glad to get rid of that trouble if they
could got about as much for tbelr
cream as for their butter after it bad
been brought to market
I be morbants are heartily in favoi
of a creamery heie, If it can be shown
that it would be operated at 'a pront.
Inn sale of creamery butter Is much
rd satisfactory tliau the ranch but
cer, which Is of a constantly vuryine
iiautity and quality. .
Msny of the farmers of the Mount
flood country ore sendiug their cream
to Portland, and it la claimed tbal
much better retuiua can be seouied
from a creamery near at borne, savlni;
the express on the cream to Portland,
tin the expiess baok on the but
ler, while there Is also a saving of 11
to 20 per cent in butter fat that ton
goes to tbe Portland crenmeiy.
lbe following advantages aie claim

Uo-operative factories are owned
aud oontiolled by farmers who ftir-
lsb tbe milk.
From '20 to 40 farmers and business
meu of tbe town each owning from
$100 to $000 of the stock, combine to
own a factory and ruu It on tbe prin
ciple of making cows pay as much as
Private or individual factories are
rnu on the opposite principle, viz:
Big profits for tbt faotory, aud ob
taining their milk from tbe farmers
as cheaply as possible.
Patrons of oo-onerative factories re
alize from $8 to $12 per oow more.tban
o tbe patrons of private creameries.
ftacb patron a milk Is delivered in
bis owa can or cans, and Is separately
weighed and also tested, lo determine
tbe quantity of butter that it con
tains. Tbe cream Is immediately separated
from tbe milk by running tbe whole
ilk through a machine oalled a
centrifugal separator." Tbe sweet
skint milk ia returned at once to tbe
patron free ol charge.
lbe cream Is made up Into fancy
huttet aud sold by the manager of tbe
factory at tbe highest market price.
At tbe end of each month a full set
tlement is (nude with the patrons.
lorn 1 to 3 cents per pound of butter
made is taken out to pay tbe expense
of making, acking, selling and ship
ping tbe butter, as well as tbe protlU
of the factory; the bnlance of the
money is divided among tbe patrons
in proportion to tbe amount of butter
oontaiued in each one'a milk.
They are convenient. Milk oan be
delivered at auy time betweeu 6 and
10 o clock in tbe forenoon, to suit the
convenience of patroua in warm
weather, and every other day In cold
weather, lleuoe milk can be hauled
six mites to a butter factory as con
veniently aa three miles to a obeese
faotory or one mile to a depot foi
shipment. No ice ii required, as it
matters not bow warm the milk is de
livered as long as it ia not sour.
Ibey will relieve youi housewives
and families of nearly one-balf of
tbeii household labors by taking care
of milk and the drudgery ot butter-

Potatoes First Came to Ireland From
When the Spaniards under Plzarro
came to Peru, early in tbe sixteenth
oentury, they tstind the potato bott)
growing wild n the fields aud culti
vated by tbo natttat for food.
Qu lowly cominff to relish the new
MauMile, lhe coisM H In toeir own
language. Iwtioto, or potato, from its
itwMiiutSxioo to two awaet potato,
Wbiob waa ahead in ianeral cultiva
tion in Spain, having wen one of the
pieseuts brought to yneeu Isabella by
Columbus, on bio return from his
first voysgo of discovtjr to tbe uew
Humboldt states that at the time of
tbe discovery of America tbe potato
was found growing wild in all tbe
temperata portions of the southern
oontlnent from Chilo to New Grana
da, but not in Mexico.
Hleronynms Cardon, a monk. Is
credited with having been tbe first to
introduce it fiom Peru into Spain,
while Iron) Spain It waa carried into
Italy, aud gradually spread Ituo other
parts of continental Europe.
In lb8ti potatoes weie brought from
Virginia aud North Uaroliua to Ire
land by the colonists sent out by Hir
Walter Kalelgh, and were Urst culti
vnted on Kalelgh s estate near Cork.
The Irish soon developed a special
londuess for the ea ulent vegetable
aud made it a staple article of diet
so much so that it is everywhere
Known as tne irisn potato.
Home authorities state that It was
crought from Santa Fe, in New Mexi
oo, to Uuglnud, by John Hawkins lu
lu02: ''tit others claim, and apparent
ly with good reason, that this was not
the common potato, but the sweet no
tato, and there is no evidence that it
was known to any of the aborigines ol
tbe Noith American coutlnetit, it i
further believed that its occurence in
Virginia aud Carolina waa due to an
earlier introduction by the Spaniards,
lu a work published lu Kj'Ji, enti
tled "Ulrard's Hetbal," the potato is
pictured lu a way to show that there
oan be no mistake concerning its
Ideutity, aud is described as follows.
under tbe name of "Batata Virgin-
ana, sur Virgiuianorum, vol Pop
pies" (potatoes of Virginia):
J. be root Is tbioke, fat and tuber
ous, not muob ditloriug either in
sbapo, color or taste from the com
inuu potatoes (or sweet potatoes).
saving from the rootea hereof are not
so great nor long ; some of them as
round as a ball, some oval or egge-
lasbiun, some longer and others short-
whicb knobbie rootes are fasten-
d into the stalk with m infinite
number of threddie ati ings. It (trow
etb naturally in America, where it
waa Urst discovered, as reported bv
C. Clusius, siuoe which time I have
received rootes hereof from Virginia,
otherwise oalled Norembega, which
grow aud prosper in my garden as in
their own native oountrie. "
Hut though tbe potato was a native
of America aud bad been cultivated
to some extent in the southern states,
It was unknown In INew Knuland un
til the early part of the eluhteeutb
oentury, when it was Introduced from
Ireland, where it had already become

FOR FRUIT FAIR
COMMITTEES MEET WITH SUCCESS
Exhibit Will Have Larger Space nag
Will lie Places' iuOster
Arrangements that are beins nimla
by exhibitors and ofllcers of the fruit
fair indicaet that more interest is bet
ing takeu in the lair this year than
ever liefore aud that it will eclipse all
previous eitorts or this kind at Hood
After looking tbe matter over care
fully the executive committee of the
Fair association decided to have the
exhibit held in the aame place thttt it
was two years ago and will (provide a
laiger and better space for it than
ever before. The fair building will
be built up ngaiiist the Davidson
building nnd extend out to Klret
stieet. The selection of the Davidsun
lot wag agreed on alter thinking the
matter over carefully and it is thought
that the fair will be far more success
ful and secure a great many more i.d
miMsions by having it planed lu a n u
If possible arrangements will he
made with the (). li. it N. Co. to have
daylight trainx (.topped here for a lew
minutes duriuu the exhibition In or
der to allow tourists and passengers
the opporutnity of seeing what Hood
Kiver Irult looks like when seen to aa
advantage and attractive advertising;
matter will also be distributed.
Invitations to visit tbe fair and
oards of admission will be issued to
prominent people throughout tbo
state and it is expected that a good
mauy of those invited will attend.
Gtlloers and committees, who have
the work lu hand of soliciting exhib
its say that they have found a willii g-
uess on tbe part of growers to exhib
it, but that it has been suggested tl at
tbey be given a season pass, as the
fruit requires a good deal of care aud
attention in order to have it mitko
the best display, il'his they say luo
essltates having some nue constantly
lu attendance and aa they are forced
to go In aud out ot the fair building
frequently, compelling them to pay
admission, makes it cpnsiderahly
more expensive. Ibey also say that
it Is necessary to provide a close
watch on their exhibits to keep tht in
from being depleted by those who
cannot resist the temptation to
"swipe" Hood Klver fruit, and that
with a season pass the matter could
be soon arranged as to keen their ex
hibits under surveillance without fan
additional expense. Tbe natter will
be plaoed before the executive com
mittee and it Is thought thatltnuu ..
be satisfactorily adjusted.' -
While the premium list committee
bag not yet decided the question of
premiums it is expeoted that the dis
play will be governetl very much by

quired of them we give below the list
