George Quayle, secretary of the Eu
gene Chamber of Commerce in writing
the Oregon Flax Fiber company of Sa
lem, notes the fact that the machinery
purvhnsod by the Kugene men for cut
ting flax proved quite satisfactory. As
there are only two mowem of the kind
in Oregon, and as the Kngene men hap
pen to own both of them, the Oregon
Flax Fiber Co. is promised the use of
one in a few days. This mower cuts
the flax to within one and one half
inch of the ground, while the average
mower leaves alxmt si inches. As the
length of the fiber is what counts in
tlnx, it has been fouu.l advisable to
pull it, but the Kugene people seem to
have solved the problem by securing a
machine that will lose only about nn
inch of the stem, avoiding the slow
work of pulling.. Theodore Hoth Is

company, and Kd Seiiunke, secretary
