Tho work of County Agent Thom
as during tho past year has been
productive of such satisfactory re
sults, that Tho Herald has mado a
survey of it and tho result of tho
Investigation reveals tho following
Work has been carried on with
out any organized assistance back
of It. Much more could havo been
accomplished had thero been an or
ganization such as Is contemplated
in tho County Farm Bureau.
Tho major part of tho work has
been put on threo projects, namely,
squirrel eradication, grasshopper
eradication and Introducing sulphur
Results of squirrel eradication
campaign: Tho county court adopt
ed tho now state law providing for
means for eradicating the squirrols
nnd other rodent pests on non-resident
land, etc. Approved formula
tor mixing squirrel poison was fur
nished and sufficient strychnine dis
tributed for mixing 5,700 quarts of
poisoned grain, nearly halt of which
was mixed and distributed through
tiro county agent's office. Thero was
sufficient for nearly 400,000 baits,
and, estimating that half as many
squirrels wcro killed as baits, would
mean tho destruction of at least
200,000 squirrels In tho county. A
vory consorvattvo estimate of the
damage one squirrel will do In a
season has been placed by a number
of investigators at 75 cents. Much
gonoral Intorcst has been aroused
in the matter and many people are
looking forward towards a much
more comprehensive campaign an
Grasshoppor campaign. More
than 30,000 pounds of poisoned
bran and sawdust were used in fight
ing grasshoppors ,tho work being
carried on In six difforent communi
ties. Tho total estimnto mado by
I tho people of tho various communi
ties of tho ucreago of crops pro
tected In theso districts is 11,000
acres. Considering that had the
campaign against tho grasshoppors
not boon enrried on they would havo
idono 'damage amounting to at least
$5.00 an aero on this acreage,, this
means a saving to tho county of
JGIi.OOO. Tho total cost of tho ma
terial ' used was approximately
Ilosults of tho sulphur campaign.
Through publicity given to tho re
sults being obtained by tho fow who
applied sulphur last year.a pool or
der amounting to 1SS.100 pounds
has boon ordered. This is sufficient
for a llttlo ovor 1800 acres of al
falfa. TJio avorago Increase observ-
I ed on somo six fields where sul
phur had boon applied was tnree
quartor,tons por acre for the
soason. On this basis it means that
tho 1800 acres which will havo tho
sulphur applied this coming year
should produce ovor 3000 tons of
' Virtr nlmvn wlinfr fniilr1 lin nvnontoil
without tho sulphur. This 3000
tons of hay at $1C per ton would
mean tho' adding of ?4fi,000 to the
crop returns of Klamath county an
othor year. In addition to this, tho
exporimonts show that tho Increase
duo'to tho uso of sulphur will con
tinuo for two or threo years longer.

Ono of tho largest deals in farm

Klamath river that has been con
summated In years was closed today
when the H. H. Van Valkenburg
ranch, consisting of 1,400 acres, was
purchased by C. L. Holllday, the
consideration being approximately
$60,000. Over 500 acres of this
tract is under a private irrigation
system, 300 being already in alfalfa.
Most of the land lying abovo tho
present irrigatioii system is suscop
