ELAM'S BANK Walla Walla, Wash. IKennewick Courier LAUREN W. SOTH EDITOR and PROPRIETOR TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION One Year, in Advance - - $1.50 Six Months .... .75 Three Mouths .50 A Hv an ted—A Dinner-pail Brigade Kennewick, to he a large city, must have factories. We must have a "dinner-pail brigade" that will be consumers of the products of our farms and gardens. Don't it strike you funny that we are a fruit country yet our grocers' shelves are lined with canned goods shipped in from foreign canneries .Some dav a man will come along who will buy your fruit that will not stand shipping; by modern ma chinery fill his cans with fruit, pul verized stems ard enough formal dehyde to preserved the whole, will get rich. Some day we will have a cannevy. We now manufacture cement blocks, sausage and printing and have only made a beginning. FLOUR INO MILL NEXT ! Wood & Cochran have pur l chased a site, have been granted a I siding which was surveyed some j , time ago, and will build a fl tiring | mill to be operated in co >neclion ; with the city water and light plant. I In due time we can buy flour as a i home product. What does it profit i a man to ship away his wheat and : ship in his flour, paying high trib : lite to the railroad coming and go iing. Our p esent home market is i small, that is where the "dinner ! pail brigade" comes in, furnishing j au army of consumers and creating ' a home market. I Again, situated in a valley of : ranches we eat butter made in Yak jiina or Spokaue aud use Carnation ! Cream. Dairying in this valley I should be given more attention aud : production increased many fold, i A co-operative creamery managed .jby expeiienced dairymen is a fine ; enterprise for a community and ! increases the earnings of the ranch er engaged priucipa'ly in othfer lines. At Pro.sser the uairy indus try is to be started by the Hazel j wood people and the farmers in | that vicinity have sent a repre->ent i ative, Mr. S. J. Haresson of Sunny side, to western Oregon to buy 100 cows that will make a fine start in the dairy industry there. We may never be large enough i to have saw mills located here and ! float the logl tfown the Columbi •. jto them as Wm. Blattler suggests ! but we now have a field for a brick yard, a laundry, an alfalfa reduc ing plant and an arlifical ice plant ; Other industries will suggest them j selves to keen manufacturers. If |we are to be a large city we must j haye factories. Wheat in Sacks and Bulk The following from the Walla Walla Union is worthy of the attention of the farmers at thin time, when so much is being said about dispensing with wheat sucks: "Since a circular was issued by Bul four, fiutherie Company, of San Fran cisco, advocating the scheme of ship ping grain in bulk instead of sacks the question has attracted considerable attention from handlers and buyer* of wheat as weil as farmers' organiza tions in various district* of the North west. A great many express them selves as wanting to see sacks elimi nated as far as possible in the future. It might be well to observe that simi lar experiments as now recommended have been tried before but did not meet with success. "Exporters are firm in the belief that wheat can not be shipped from this coast to Europe in bulk with suc cess untii a different class of carriers is employed, and for this branch of the business grain will have to be sacked. "It is probable though, that a stead ily increasing amount of wheat may be haudled without the additional ex pense of sacking because of the enlarg ing proportion of the crop that is ground into fiour before shipment; tfut it will be some time before the leading handlers can adjust themselves and their facilities tocaring for this branch of business, and conservation Is ad vised i«i crowding this new depart ment because it offers po sibilities for loss;s through an unsatisfactory mar ket for unsacked wheat. The change can not be made all at once." Carload of Burbank, Early Ro*e and Early Ohio Seed Potatoes for sale. Tull A Godwin.
