Since Oregon furiueig are getting
considerable encouragement along
the line of llax raising by the possibil
ity of its being manufactured, they
are becoming more or lesj interested
in the culture ot this famous libre
plant. There is a general belief that
the growth of llax is detrlmctal to
land, which Is surly unfounded In
fact, and thousands of farmers could
be found to testify to that effect.
Our experience of growing flax for
12 years In Dakota entirely convince
us that it was not seriously affecting
tho ftrtility of our soil. Always where
a crop of llax preceded oats the latter
crop was benefited very much, and
when there was a reasonable amount
of moisture preceding the flax crop
the latter was beneficial to the oat
crop in a remarkable degree. Tlie
soil was always mellow, clean of foul
stuff and in about the same condition
as when sown to field peas. Our ex
perience with over a thousand acres
fully demonstrated to our satisfaction
that llax Is not so dangerous as some
people imagine. This is fully eon
firmed by what Prof. Snyder of the
Minnesota experiment station says In
Unless the conditions In Oregon
would entirely change the chemical
effects of flax on the soil there need
be no groat danger as to the Impover
ishment of the strong soils of Oregon,
The following is the gist of Prof.
It has been unpopularly supposed
that the growing of flax removes a
large amount of fertility from the soil,
The Minnesota Experiment Station
has just issued a bulletin on fiax which
shows that It does not remove an ex
cessive amount of fertility. In fact,
an average yield of 15 bushels of llax
seed per acre will remove less fertility
than 150 bushels of potatoes,45 bushels
of corn, or 30 bushels of wheat.
It is true that fiax will not thrive on
the same soil where it has been grown
for at least llvo years previously, bo
cause tho fiax straw and roots in their
decomposition produce products which
will destroy n following llax crop.
When live or seven years Intervene be
tween two llax crops, then tho old
straw and crop residue is thoroughly
decomposed and will not Injure a now
fiax crop. For successful flax raising
on soils worn by grain cropping, a lib-

oral live ni'Kt be made of farm yard
manure so as to bring tlie laud tip to a
high grade or fertility. The manure
should be applied to grain crops, and
not direct to the fiax. Then agowl
yield of llax can be obtained and no
injuiy to the soli will follow.
Flax is a weak feeding crop.possess
ingbut little power of obtaining its
food from the holl. It absorbs the
larger portions of Its nitrogen, phos
phoric acid and potash during the
first 40 or 50 days of its growth. In or
der to -supply the food in so short a
time the soil must be lu a high state
It has been positively proven that
there Is nothing in the old bug-a-boo
about lbx being ruinous to land and
those farmers who have continually
raised llax for 23 years have no great
fears and Hud it not only profitable,
beneficial as a rotation. Tlie writer

and that being the third consecutive

State mail advices furnish the fol

Conditions are evidently changing
a little and the position of the mar
ket on fine goods is firmer than it
has been for some time past. The
volume of business on the local mar
ket Is not large, poaslbjy because of
the limited quantity of such stock as
Is wanted. Inquiries from across the
water are much more numerous and
shippers would pay 10JUc for
pholce lots pf either state or Pacific
coast. English nmrkotu have boon
doing better of late and this has
turned shippers attention 'this way.
Brewers have noted the increasing
interest of exporters and have lately
been more willing to look at samples,
With some business resulting. The
strength of the njarket, however, Is
confined closely to fine goods. Every
one seems to think that there is an
abundance of under grade stock, and
this will be the last to feel any im
provement. Old hops are also moving
very slowly, though values for choicg
show a slight hardening tendency.
Fair sales are reported in the interior
of this state, but buyers are culling
oyer the growth and picking out the
bosst, Tho more we sec of the new
state crop the jnpre we are convinced
of the generally poor quality; a few
line growths are in the best sections
but these are either not offering at
present or hold for a Jhigher price,
Considerable activity Is reported on
the Pacific coast, with sales of best
lots at 7i8c.
There is some inquiry for strictly
choice hops, and such aro salable to
fair advantage, as compared with
prices which have been lately current.
Lower grades aro not being sought
after. The demand Is mainly for
Europe, the crop thore, particularly
in Germany, having been damaged
liioro or less in Maturing. Prices are
stUl too low to afford much encourage
