Since there is no time of
tho year when tho farmer can
more easily leave his home du
ties than early in Deccmbor, the
authorities at tho Oregon Agri
cultural College have this year
changed the date of the annual
one-week farmer's course to Dec
7-11, instead of immediately pre
ceding or following the winter
short course, which this year
comes Jan. 9 to Feb. 7. The
agricultural instruction at the
college, insofar as is possible
will be boiled down to a single
week of the most practical and
helpful lectures and demonstra
tions, some 30 or 40 a day, cov
ering the breeding and raising
and care of all kinds sorts of
farm animals, the growing and
harvesting of grains, forage crops
and fruits, tho planning and
erection of farm buildings, and
the solution of a vast number of
farm problems.

At a meeting of tho directors
of tho First National Bank held
last Saturday, that institution
was mado a hundred thousand
dollar bank. At this meeting
tho directors increased tho bank's
surplus fund from $70,000.00 to.
$75,000.00, which amount in con
junction with the bank's capital
of $25,000.00 gives it a working
capital of $100,000.00. The First
National now carries tho largest
surplus fund of any National
bank in the country of like capi
talization.
The First National has long
been recognized as nn institution
of undoubted strength, and its
largo capital not only insures
absolute protection to its deposi
tors, but also permits it to oc
cupy a broad field of usefulness
throughout this entire section.
Much of tho success of this
bank is due to the fact that its
executive oflicers extend the
same uniform courtesy to all its
patrons, thus assuring the small
er customers of the saino careful
consideration as is accorded its
larger or more influential pat
rons. This bank's over conserva
tive policy has brought to it an
immense volume of business, as
is evidenced by it large deposits,
it having reported the largest de
posits of any bank in Malheur,
Grant, Harney. Crook and Lake
counties, at the last official call
fo. reports of condition on Sep
tember 4th, 1912.
The First National has been a
powerful factor in the develop
ment and upbuilding of South
eastern Oregon. Wo congratu
late the institution on its success,
gained through its clean, clear
cut business methods.

The ladies of the Afternoon
Club held their first meeting of
the season Saturday. October 5th,
at tho home of the president, Dr.
Elizabeth Ellis. A number of
new members were received, and
Mrs. Sevcik was present as tho
guest of honor. At this meeting
tho club launched upon the study
of tho Nineteenth Century, which
will constitute its work for tho
ensuing year; Presidents of tho
United States" being tho special
subject of tho day. Each mem
ber present responded to roll-call
by giving a sobriquet of some
president who served during tho
nineteenth century. Dr. Ellis
read a scholarly paper on "Our
Presidents" after which she ren
dered "The Blue and tho Gray"
to tho soft accompaniment of
"Tenting Tonight", with Mrs.
Rembold at tho piano. Walt
Whitman's poem "O, Captain,
My Captain"was read by "Moth

tiful words of her own, "Auntie

impressive poem "Lead Kindly

ved and each lady went away

As tho weather prevented the
full program arranged for tho
amusement and entertainment of
tho fair visitors on tho days ad
vertised, n special program was
arranged and pulled off Sunday
afternoon. Tio attendance was
very good considering conditions
and the cards wero particulary
interesting. There wero three
races, a consolation running race
with three entries which was
taken by Soventy, with Smut
second. A special three quart
ers of a mile was run by Sovonty,
Jerusha and Hush which proved
one of the best of tho week, all
three horses coming under the
wire in a bunch. Hush won with
Seventy a close second and the
mare right at their heels. A
trot and pacing race with three
entries, Doc. Jones, Kate Murpy
and High, the latter an outside
horse entered by Starr. He was
not fast enough to make it inter
esting for the home horses.
H. J. Sherburn succeeded in
riding the bull that afternoon,

did some trick riding and rope
spinning that was much appre
ciated by those present.
The fair was quite a success so
far as tho exhibits were concern
ed and was a source of much
l benefit. For the first time since
it was started it did not pay ex
penses, therefore from a finan
cial standpoint it was not a suc
cess. Tho Association will stand
the loss and every obligation will
be paid. The exhibits have been
packed and shipped out to tho big
land shows, in Portland, Minne
apolis and tho Great Northern
exhibit trains. Other samples
have gone to tho Agricultural

large percentage of tho urban
population, is the opinion of It.
R. Miller, traffic manager of the
O. W. R. & N., who was the
principal speaker at the regular
meeting of the Portland Realty
Roard says the Oregonian.
Mr. Miller pointed out that
the growth of tho cities was im
measurably out of proportion to
the development of the rural dis
tricts. Ho declared that the
small increase of population in
the country was due primarily
io me memous louowca in agri
culture. The most important
duty of the people of Portland,
he said, is to co-operate with the
railroad, the State Agricultural
College and other interested in
stitutions in the work of adopt
ing a system that would increase
tho volim.e of soil products and
bring the best possible returns
to those engaged in agriculture.
"According to the last census
the population of Portland was
about one-third of that of the en
tire state" said Mr. Miller.
"Thero wero two men in the
slate, by this ratio, who were
contributing to the support of

millions of dollars worth of eggs,
poultry, hogs, cattle and packing
house products. This condition
is bad. Instead, we should be
shipping out of Oregon, all such
products that we are receiving
from other states.
"One factor in solving this
great problem is more intensive
cultivation of the soil. We need
better and more practical farm
ing methods. The big farms
should be cut up into smaller
tracts.
"In the Eastern part of Oregon
and Washington, where wheat
growing is the main industry,
there should be a rotation of the
crops. -Half of that land is idle
every year to permit of summer
fallowing. The time must come
when such a system will be abol
ished and all that rich land be
made to produce something every
year. That method is necessary
to increase the rural population
in those districts.
