This tract was opened a few years
ago by putting through a winding road

above and below, but lighting, paved
sidewalks, etc., were not at tirst pro

Is twenty-four feet from curb to curb,
an ample width for nil purposes. It
plves sufficient room for any ordinary
vehicles to turn in and for a carriage
to stand on each side of the street,
with space between for the passage of
other vehicles This Is an excellent il
lustration of adapting the street to Its
uses. Needless construction and main
tenance costs ;ire saved, and the In
creased depth of the adjacent property
Improves its appearance and adds to
Its value. A concrete curb and gutter

The hill is designated to take the
benefits of the State Agricultural Col
lege to the farmers on their own farms.
Km-li larmer may set aside live acres
of ground, which he agrees to farm ac
cording to instructions furnished him
by the Agricultural College. The soil
is analyzed by the college experts, and
seed is furnished by the state. The
stale is to buy an equal amount of seed
from the crop.
Throughout the farmer is to follow
the course prescrilml by tho Agricul
tural College, and the state is to pay
him t lie excess ot cot of farming
over the ordinary method. Trice are
only a few of what Mr. Ilarlcy. con
siders the bill's excellent feituers.
"Oregon has no right to ask pocple
to come out and settle and try to tmke

The yard Is ;ieocssary. for In It th"
ewes can secure needed exercise, and
it should be for their sole use. Do not

and expect the ewes to thrive. Then,
too, one must see that there are no
sharp corners nor small doors nor open
