Dr. Harry McKay Tells of
Early ExperienceIs a
flax Enthusiast -'
This is a story of flax culture in Ore
gon, written by a man who was born
in Ireland, who worked in the. flax
fields as a youth and who later became
interested in the raising of flax iu the
Willamette valley. " It is written by
Dr. Harry T. McKay of Portland to
Theodore Roth, president of the Oregon
Flax Fiber Co.
Dr. McKay writes iu part: "
"When I first located in Portland
over 30 years ago, I noticed the climat
ic conditions were somewhat similar
to those of northern Ireland where I
was born. it. struck me that flax could
lie raised in the Willamette ' valley.
From a small package uf seed sent me
from my old home planted near Port
land I grew a lengthy stock and good
fibre. Some years afterwards,' Mrs.
Wm. P. Lord called on ine .nnd got
my views in regard to flax, and asked
me to address a 'meeting of business
men in Salem. "
"I told them about flax and what
if had done for the north of Irelund.
Very little progress was made until
vears after, and Mrs. Lord and others
including myself, donated a small tract
for experimental purposes. Flax was
grown, retted and scutched.' ' 1 secured
an experienced man iu Portland for
Mrs. Lord, a man who had been, en
gaged in scutching flax iu the county
of Antrim. The crop was scute neil anu
sent to several mills and we had the
pleasure of receiving linens which cx-
celled those made in Ireland and even
excelled the Courtrai flax. This plac-
ed it beyond the experimental stage. I
"Little progress was made and
when the legislature voted money f
hoped that it would go with leaps and
bounds nnd I pictured the growth ot
Portland as well as other cities in the
valley. Flax made Belfast with its
population of more th:m 400,000.
'Aly principal object 111 writuig is
to otter a few suggestions. When 1
waa in Europe in 11)02, 1 took with m
some tlax 1 nad owaineu in cniem. j
called on the York Spinning Mills at
Belfast, employing' ' 5,000 spinners.
When 1 handed the sample to one ot
the officials I said, 'Give me yout
opinion on the quality of tlfis flax.'
After a close examination, he said,
'This is Courtrai flax.,; When 1 told
him it was grown in Oregon, he scarce
ly believed me, sayin ' that the sail
pies sent from the raited States were
much coarser. He cancel several otn-1
cials and they were astonished at tliei
. "In Ireland the swd used is what is
callel Riga and is -sold by grocers in
every village. 1 The farmer purchases
the seed he ueec s. it is milleil anil ret
ted by the farmers and the retting is
done on his own land. Each flax
grower has a series of dams or stupe
which are along i.e fences, generally
in meadow land. After the hay has
been cut from the meadow, it is used
for drying the straw after it has been
sufficiently retted, the straw being
spread out thinly tu dry. When it is
dried, the farmer ties' it in bundles and
takes it to the scutch mill. These mills
are scattered about the country. Then
a flux market is held about twice each
moutn during the seuson 111 the village's
buvers coming for that purpose.
"Mr. Roth, I have wished many
times ,1 had the money some of our
Portland moss-bocks'- have as 1 would
not hesitate in risking a fortuue- on
the flax. We can grow the flax with
out a doubt. TI1111K or now mucn mini
ey is spent for the twine for the muk
ing of nets on the Columbia river.'-'
Week at the Theatres
A number of interesting pictures, a
sprinkling of satisfactory vaudeville
and a stretch of musical farce have
been the features which have kept the
tired business man of Salem . from
throwing himself into the river (at
Riverside Dip) this' week. '
Attendance a"t Mini home production
of "Mikado" was very light, So niuch
sothat those sitting 011 the first floor
at the Grand got lonely, and this 111
spite of the fact that the popular old
opera was well presented. The com
pany is to appear again tonight with &
complete change ot price.
The Paramount attractions for the
week have 'been Kflna Goodrich in
"The Making of Magdalcna," and
Louise Huff in "Destiny's Toy."'-' -
Mae Marsh of "The Hirth or a -a-
ion" fame, has. been seen during the
week in "A Child of 'the t I aris
Streets," in which ' production she
divides stellar honors with Robert Har -
run. Also lias been seen William ' S.
Hurt in "The Primal Lure." -'
The two seriuls, "The 'Girl and the
Oiinie" nnd "The Irorr Clnw," con -
tinue with sustained interest. '

AND THINGS THEY DO
Great Convenience to Public
But Requires Hard,
During the first month of every quar
ter, the oostal authorities ut Washing
ton rpnuire all rural mail carriers to
keep a record of mail carried each day,
the number of pieces, weight, hours
worked, fmilies served and many other
details, whereby the department keeps
informed as to what is being done 011
each rural route.
' Iu the reports just filed, the record
shows that for the month of July, 1910,
there was less mail delivered than July
of one year ago. Route two received
a few more pieces and route three fell
off compared to the amount of muil de
livered Julv of 1915. Route four also
shows a falling off not only in the
amount of mail collected for the month
but in the amount delivered. Route five
is doing little better thun July of a
year ago in the number of pieces re
ceived, but has not been writing as
many letters. Route six is on a boom,
as the mail received is fully 50 per cent
more than a year ago auu 1110 irucr
... imn,t doubled. Route sev
. ,,,: .wi,,!, Were in
crease in rami as well as sending our 0
per cent more. Route eight is about
breakim? even with a year. ago. although
the mail has been more than 200 pounds
1 heavier. This route is also writing more
letters. Route nine, compared to July
of one year ago received less mail al
though it is doing a lot more writing.
Route one is now in charge of E. N.
Branson, who was given the route a
month ago, after it had been served 13
years by James Remington. It is the
longest of all routes and one of the
hardest to handle. In July Mr. Branson
delivered 12,409 pieces weighing 1,980
pounds. His heaviest cinys worm was
ill iruri.v'ii), iuiiiiuo. .......
an average of nine hours and 14 minutes,-

Charles W. Brasher on route two trav
eled with a horse and buggy nnd part
of the time with a Ford. He bundled
12.S74 pieces during July weighing
1,044 pounds. His average working
time was seven hours end nine minutes
'He served 241 families using 182
boxes. His heaviest day's burden was
117 pounds. Coming along ha collected
1.4 1 H pieces of mail weighing 107
Lyman McDonald traveled with an
auto. He has the biggest job of the
nine rural men as he delivered moro
pieces than any, 20,20c, with a weight
or 3,uo poutius ana ne carried out
1,251 pieces on his busiest day which
wus a lot more than any man did. Ho
delivers to 3SS fumilies in 278 boxes,
The folks 011 this routo are pretty good
letter writers as he collected 2,214
pieces during the month, weighing 109
pounds. Since Mr. McDonald rides in
an auto, he does not put in as many
hours as he did a year ogo.
George Litchfield on route four did
I not huve as many pieces this July to de-
liver as he did
one year ago. His record
this year is 10,810 pieces compared to
