OREGON AGRICULTURAL COL
LEGE. Corvallis. Oct. 24. (Special)
That the farmers of Klamath
County should 'plant the Grimm
variety of1 alfalfa practically ex
clusively is tho conclusion reached
by the Oregon Agricultural College
at the Eastern Oregon experiment
station. ' Extensive investigations
have proved the superior adaptabi
lity of Grimm alfalfa for this climate.
More difference exists in the var
ieties of alfalfa than is cdmmonly
tsupposed, although tho seeds are
very similar and cannot readllly be
distinguished from each othor.
Grimm is one of the variegated, types
and has flowers that are ofton green
ish, smoky, yellow, or nearly black,
occurlng throughout the fiqld.
Tho extreme hardiness of tho
Grimm variety is due, partly to sel
ection In a rigorous climate, and
partly to the branched taproots and
low, spreading crowns which aid
cold- resistance. Tho yield of Grimjn
has boen greater than that of other
varieties and It stands tho wlntors
Owing to th scarcity and high
price of Grimm seed somo unscrupu
lous dealers havo adultorated it with
soed of Turkestan or other less
hardy varieties tho seed of which Is
cheapor. For this reason extreme
caution is necessary in buying seed,
to get pure Grimm, WhlIe tho seod
testing laboratory maintained at, the
Oregon Experlmont Station, Cor
vallis, Oregon, Is froe for the use of
all farmers who send In samples for
purity or germination, yet It Is Im
possible to tell Grimm from other
varitles of alfalfa seed. Its use,
however, will enable the farmer to
get liye seed, free from weeds.
The county agent can be consult
ed regarding the Bources of good.seed
known to be genuine Grimm, as well
as upon the suposlority of Grimm
over other varieties,

0. A. C. ADVISES
TIDINGS OF DEATH
OF LOCAL WOMAN
A letter was received hero last
cvonlng convoying the sad Intelli
gence of trio death of Mrs. J. F. Ma
gulro at Monrovia, California, last
Sunday. On tho Thursday previous
Mr. Magulro received a telegram
stating that Mrs. Magulre's condi
tion was grave and ho left the next
morning for Monrovia, arriving
there shortly before her death. The
funeral services arid burial took
place in Los Angeles.
Tho death of Mrs. Maguire Is di
rectly traceable to her illness with
Influenza about one year ago. At
that time she was afflicted with this
sickness in a particularly baffling
form. Falling to regain her usual
health, Mrs. Maguire went to a sani
tarium at Milwaukee, Oregon, where
she remained for about six months.
About a month ago it was decided
to remove her to warmer and drier
climate, in the hope that it would
be benefliclal, and she was taken to
Monrovia, California. She failed to
rally and her illness continued until
death claimed her last Sunday.
The death, of Mrs. Maguire Is a
particularly sad one. She was a
woman of exemplary character and
a devoted mother. Through her
death Ave children are robbed of
the loving care and guiding hand
of a' mother whose chief delight was
the watchful solicitude of her fam
ily. Surviving her are her husband,
one daughter, Gertrude, four sons,
Charles, John, Richard and James,
and these have the deep sympathy
of the wide circle of friends by the
deceased, during her fourteen years'
residence In this city.
- At the meeting held here In the'
interests of better fire protection
throughout? the forests In this part
of 'Oregon,' Klamath resefvatloji was
represented. by. Superintendent Wal
ter G. West and Supervisor of For
ests at Large James A. Howarth, Jr.
The fire season just closed' is" am
ple evidence of, the efficiency of fire
control under- the direction of Mr.
Howarth. There were above forty
separate fires started on the Klam
ath reservation during the past sea
son but none ofxthem gained such
proportions to be considered' beyond
control. The damage done compar
ed to the number of fires was slight.
On several occasions fires were
controlled outside the reservation
boundary in order to prevent their
spreading to reservation timber. Mr.
Howarth believes in forest fire pre
vention and has improved the tele
phone and lookout system on the
reservation to a great extent. Mr.
West Is also an enthusiastic worker
In this matter and heartily backs
.up any move for better fire ontrol.
It is hoped that they will be able
to sqcuro the co-operation of other
timber protection organizations in
this locality in the matter of look-outs-
