All funnels cannot turn their place Into truck gardens, but In tbo uiovc ineni toward mixed agriculture every land owner who bus reasonably good market futilities should plan for a few acres of vegetable. This will onll for extru help, but the profits will be suffi cient to Justify the chango In pro grain. It Is necessary to stnrt right and push tha whole project In a busl uessllko way. A Utile study will show which are the money making crops and bow marketing en n be dono to advan tage. Private customers should be supplied where It Is practicable to do so. Ever and always keep lu mind the luouey value of any crop thnt time and labor are bestowed on. 8ee that it Is salable and then get the cash out of It. A great dnlii uliy wltb most farm gardens Is that the various crops nro placed In small beds, making It nbso lately necessary to do nil the work with a hoe Kami boys and i-tii - ob ject to this, and the older people are nut anxious about It. The fact Is, most farm gardens are neglected. In the llrs t place, the farmer figures thnt It doesn't pay to give time to n small proposition of this kind. The women tlnd I lie work too heavy unless there are plenty of them. Consequently a restricted area Is devoted lo garden crops, nnd the farm lalde much of the I mmm . aHsUHBH niie'fcTff HHsVW'v' EsfHPELT,t(, 'J ' ..'' -av r ' - '" t till llllN.i H.Mtu IN HOW'S. time lacks crisp, toothsome vegetables which ought to be easily produced.

Of course the Baud hoe has to be used occasionally, uud some of the weeds David C. Fisher, father of Guy Fisher of Ontario, died at the home of the latter last Saturday shortly before noon. The deceased was one of the early pioneers of Oregon, having been a resident of Union county since he crossed the plains in the early sixties. He has been at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Guy Fisher for the past three months, having come here on a visit. Mr. Fisher was born in Keokuk, Iowa, nearly 76 years ago, and re ceived his education there. He crossed the plains in the early sixties and settled near Union in Union countv, which has since been his home. He is survived by his wife and six children, who have all visited him in Ontario since his illness. The children are: Charles Fisher of Union, Mrs. L. Couch of Wallowa, Otis F'isher of Portland, Mrs. Henley of Portland, Harvey Fisher of Wallowa and Guy Fisher of Ontario. The body was taken to Union early Sunday morning, nnd the funeral was held there Monday afternoon. mny have to be removed by hand, but tbo proposition Is not a formidable one. Io not forget thnt It Is prnetlenlly Impossible to get the soil too rich for the ordlnnry garden crop. Well rotted stnble manure Is always nvallahlo on every farm. Put on n large amount of this during the fall or very early In the spring. Fall plowing Is best. Cov er the manure deeply. In early spring.

Down in the hollow back of your barn there may be thou sands of tons of "white coal" If you are keen enough to see It. And that "coal" mny be worth a good deal more than a dollar a ton If you fire clever enough to convert It Into manifold utilities. It Is the . i..mest and most de pendable "coal" lu the world. For ages poeW huvo raved about It, calling It "purling brook" or "rippling streum'' or "sweetly mill muring rivulet." Practical men have done n bit more lhau rave about these lovely water courses. They have harnessed' the ripples and gentle murmurs ami have brought them as light and pawaf to the barns and ma chinery sheds to the farm wile's kitchen, giving couil.uts a lid ad vantages undreamed of a genera tion ago. If you hae any water powvr on oiir farm put it to work. h It be a UMIni little I ibi of developing only one horsepower, put ii to work II oii do not you are iiegle.uii; thousands ,,f tons of 'white coal" that tliS restless, sjvarfltw ing waters hava been trying to tell us of for centuries.

Country Ueu tlemau. LESSON IN FOOD SUPPLY. Whn parm Yi,,d, Famiy., Nd, th, chances Favor the Fsrnv.r. The south Is not the only section of the country where couceutratlou upon a single cash crop has tended to make farming more of a guinble than a sound business. A case has recently been reported to siveclallsta lu the I'nttad States department of agrlcul lure of a North Dakota wheat farmer who having run badly lu debt applied for a loan of $l,uu0. He bad uothlug e e : e The Ontario H. S. track team went to Poise last Saturday, but had a lit tle hard luck, taking only N points out of a possible 134. The Ontario high was outclassed throughout the event, taking first place in the broad Jump. Husted jumped through the air for eighteen feet and two inches, while Mink and Shook took first place in the quarter and half. The Poise boys were ex ceptionally strong in each event, and it took a very good man to defeat the Poise representatives. The Ontario boys wore fighting nil the time, but Boise had too many delegates to pick from. As the Ontario high school only has about 200 to pick from while Boise has about 1500 in roll, so you ran see what the local boys had to go up against. The feature of the whole event was that of Duffy, a Boise boy, who vaulted the bar at 11 feet, and only missed 11 feet (I inches a trifle. He looks like the best boy In the. northwest for that event. But let's don't see the Ontario boys give up, as training and practice makes the best and Ontario has got some guild boys, and will make a mark for themselves and the school if they will only keep working. whatsoever on bis plson except the? homes required In the wbeatfleld. There was not a cow, a pig or even n chicken, no vegetable garden nothing whatsoever with which to support the fn tally. Refore he could get his $1,000 he was .mi pel led by the banker to whom be applied to agree to use a portion of the lonn to purchase two rows, a half doseu pig-, and a small flock of poul try, besides uiidortakliiK to maintain a fn t r sized vegetable garden. Tha banker had figured that with thla equipment the farmer could get nlong even In iioor grain season without running further Into debt und that In good years the prollta from his grsln would be sufTlcleut gradually to repay . the loan. f This rensotilng proved correct, for Id flvo years the money had been paid back. The farmer has learned his les son, and Ills farm continues to supply his family wltb food ua well aa wltb cash. Wsgen Bd Extension. An Invention which will prove of In terest to every farmer la one which prntdo the o i. Unary medium weight nnd length wagon with nil extension bed.
