He is having a thorough analysis
made of all his findings by expert

C. T. Douglas, of Darango, Col., an
agent for the rubber trust of the
United States, passed down the O. R.
A N. this morning to Keho and Uma
tilla, to investigate the adaptibility of
the soil and climate in the west end
of Umatilla county to the rubber
plant whieli grows in New Mexico,
Arizona, southern Utah and southern
Colorado, in abundance.
The plant flourishes in sandy, hot
soil and lives for hundreds of years
without moisture or cultivation in the
sand hills of old Mexico. The trust is
beginning its cultivation in parts of
southern Colorado and Utah, and will
investigate diffe-ent parts of the Pa

Hilly, sandy, arid land, which is
too high for other crops is a favorite
location for a rubber plunt field and
after rid-ng over western Umatilla
county, Mr. Douglas w ill report to his
company in New York, and if every
thing is favorable it is possible that
arrangements w ill l.o made to start an
experimental crop in this county.
According to Mr. Douglas, it requires
about two years for the rubber plant
to come to maturity and a good crop,
weU net ou the ground, w ill yield from
100 to ?i H?r acre, annually.
It is customary, to extract the juice
from the plant and ship it in liquid
form to the factories where the plan
tation is located at a distance from
the factory, but w here the factory and
field are close together it is custom
ary to ship the plants as they are har
t vested, to the factory, where they are
The'Yiibher liquid is contained in
! the stalks of the plants and as they
grow older the liquid becomes more
abundant although the foilage becom
es less dense as the plants grow old.
Little, if any cultivation is neces
sary and the plants take deep root and
seldom die. It costs from 3 to $10
per acre to plant the laud to rubber.
The favorite method is to secure
young shoots from older fields and
transplant them. However, a good
stand may be secured from seed.

"A large crowd assem bleed at the

Mr. Guy McKuue has just received

of Modoc county that bis bid for and

isted an under current of dourt as to
whet her or not the sule of this proper
ty would bo confirmed by tho court,
