You remember when you were a boy going to
school, and you were placed on a committee to do
certain work. What was your opinion then and your
recollection of the man or woman who gave you a
cordial greeting and who willingly helped you with
the task you had in hand? Take it teday: Most of
the people of Klamath County have had more or less
to do with soliciting for something or other. How
did you feel when you walked away from the home
or office of a person who turned you down or who
treated you like a beggar when you were simply do
ing a duty that called for commendation and co-operation?
Keep these thoughts in mind when the boys from
the High School call upon you this week to sell you
a copy of The Honor Roll of Klamath County. Show
that you are made of the right kind of stuff, that you
have a heart in you so big that the boy will always
look back upon his visit to you with" a-pleasant mem
ory. He is not begging from you. He is not trying
to sell you some cheap, valueless article. He is doing
you a favor in offering you an opportunity to buy a
treasure at just about the cost of production. The
possession of an Honor Roll will be a mark of dis
tinction. It will be something of which you will be
proud. Instead of feeling that you have extended a
favor to the boy, thank him for the courtesy he has
extended to you, for if the boy did not believe that he
was calling on a person possessed of sufficient culture
to recognize the value of the book he is offering, he
would pass you by.
But whether you purchase one or not do not
forget that you are performing an act that will make
an indelible impression an impression that is sure
to come home to you at some future date.
Beginning tomorrow and continuing until Mon
day, the High School Cadets will call upon the people
of the county for the purpose of selling them a copy
of The Honor Roll. They are doing this to raise
money to pay for their uniforms and to help defray
the expense of their camping tvip next year. They
want to sell two thousand copies of this book. Do
not disappoint them. If you have decided to buy
one, just remember the cause and order two. You
will not regret it. The feeling of satisfaction you
will have will be worth ten times what the books will
cost you. And remember: There will be no exten
sion; there will be no second edition; there will be
no extra copies; there must be a signed order for
every book. It will be your last chance to get a copy,
and if you do not avail yourself of it now, you will
never be able to do so again. It is now or never, and
the boys will give you 5ne chance to avail yourself

HIGHWAY PIIOJECTS TRIMMED.
Missoula, Mont., Sopt. 18. High
way projects In tho first district of
tho federal forest service for the
coming year, will have to bo reduc
ed one half, according to T. W. Nor
cross, assistant chief engineer of
the department of agriculture at
Washington, who recently visited
district headquarters here. He said
necessary funs were unavailable.
Mr. Norcross loft here on a Bur
vey of the district to determine what
highways shall be glveri attention
during the coming ?ear. He said thri
forest service would have 17,000,
000 less to spend for new roads and
highway improrement and mainten
ance next year than during the pre-ent'-eeaaoa.
Much credit Is duo H. A. Talbot,
who lives on tho Keno road, for in
troducing a new silage crop to Klam
ath County. It Is predicted that with
in a very few years we will see many
silos in Klamath County, as a re
sult of Mr. Talbot's experiment this
year with Russian sunflowers as a
crop for ensilage. This experiment
Is of special value to those having
dry land as It thoroughly demon
strates the possibility ot producing
six to ten tons of silage per acre on
dry land under extremely unfavor
able seasonal conditions. It will pay
anyone interested in a cheap forage
crop to visit Mr. Talbot's ranch dur
ing the next week or ten days and
see the results for themselves.
About the middle of May, six
acres wore planted to Ruslan sun
flowers. The crop was planted and
handled the same as a corn crop, not
Withstanding havy freezes and
frosts after the sunflowers were up,
there is now a field of excellent feed
standing six to ten feet high. It is an
easy matter to find Individual plants
weighing as much as 15 pounds, as
it is cut ready for the silo.
During the slack time last winter,
Mr. Talbot constructed a pit silo
with capacity of approximately 30
tons. The cash outlay on this silo
consisted of 'merely a few sacks of
cement for plastering the walls. This
fall a cutting outfit was purchased
at a cost of less than $G0. On ac
count of there being no necessity of
a blower or elevator, a small cutting
outfit was all that was necessary.
Tho power is furnished by a small
electric motor, which was already
in use on the ranch. The silo is be
ing filled now.
In addition to using the crop for
ensilage, Mr. Talbot has found that
his horses, cows and bogs all Neat
the sunflowers readily and 3eem to
relish It. In making a test with the
milk cows, It was found that when
fed the sunflowers in addition to
tholr regular feed, there was a de
cided gain in milk production. This
gain dropped when tho sunflowers
were not fed.
Mr. Talbot's experiment with this
new crop will no doubt be watched
with much interest and w will hear
more about it this winter when the
ensilage Is being fed.

graphically portrays the growth ot

the war when wells furnished much
of the motive power that took troops
and supplies to France and victory,
occupies such a prominent place In
the relations between Mexico and the
Vrorn 1901 to 1918, Inclusive, the
production of crude petroleum la
the republic amounted to 285,919,

consistent gain over that previous.
In 1901 only 10,345 barrels wero
produced. In 1914 production then
reached 26,235,403 barrels, and in
1918, 63,828,326 barrels.
During the year of 1918 out ot
