Willamette than any known in a

with the wheat crop". All grain
seems to have then been -in the
dough. The intense heat of the
period, with the mercury soaring at
102 degrees in Corvallis, arrested

shrunken berry. This is the theory-
of nearly all farmers. It is al

hours with nothing on the green

theories of life and circumstance
for which urchins have always been
famed.- For instance, here is the

'charming them." When the pro

to be "charmed." It is done thus

spit inside and leave the package

paper, the wart is a goner, because
it is thereby "charmed." Accord
ing to all small boy authorities, it
is a cure that never fails.

A twenty acre 'field on the

That is accounted a pretty good

sown to wheat and clover. Of the
clover, in spite of the extra dry
year, there is now a stand. The
better crop of wheat shows how the
rotation process pays, according to
the idea of August Fischer.
