The fish gates are still in the rivet1 and it is hoped by Mr. Van Dusen that still more fish will come yet this fall. - The force at the hatchery is practi cally idle, owing to toe lack of fe male fish to work on. Mr. Van Du sen accounts for this alarming condi tion from one of two causes: Either the Columbia river was fished to death this year, or else the young fry turned out of the hatchery four years ago, did not return to the Columbia, to anawn, as is their past history and nature.

Judsoti Expresses Himself as to Differing Methods of Cultiva tion of the Noll Gives Practical Advice About Seed Selection uml Contrast the Stockman's System With tlie GrHininan'K Lack of Sys tem. "Wherever you find one farmer in a community raising u little better crops than his neighbor every year, and getting a little better price for his product in the same niuikcl, you may know that there is some special Individual effort being used by that man that pay him In dollars and cents for his intelligence and trouble," said Col. Ji. C. Judson to the East Oregoulan today. "In every farming community are found men who raise just a (ew bush els more wheat to the acre thun their neighbors, every year; their wheut tests just a few pounds more uml Is just a little better grade, yl grow ing on exactly the same ground. "This is not chance. It is not luok It is not a happening that may come to any man, no matter what his farm lug methods. It is the result of Intel ligent study of nature's laws und the application of the knowledge so gain ed to the cultivation of the soil and the culture of crops. "Deep plowing, frequent .harrow ing and rolling the land, on the sum mer Jallow in the Pnlouse country produces a larger yield of wheat than, In other wheat growing districts where the same methods are not practiced. "From personal observation 1 know that these udvunced methods o( farming produce increased crop yields. The Increased yield more than pays (or the extra labor, be sides the extra cultivation leaves the land ln a much better condition (or succeeding crops. It conserves the strength of the land enriches ' It (rom the very moisture stored by this cultivation and brings returns In dol lars and cents when the crop is turn ed off and accounts balanced up for the year. "Another thing that might be done by farmers at a great profit Is the planting of only the largest and most perfect kernels of wheat. The screens in the fanning mills can be used to separate the large kernels from the small. The small kernels are Just as marketable as the large ones, and the large will yield two-fold more kernels of wheat, much heavier straw for feed and stand drouth and ccld weather much better. Try this experiment on a small tract. Seed your large and small kerneled wheat side by side and note the difference at threshing time. " When a cattleman saves a bull calf, does he save the little, scrawny 'runt,' or does he separate out the biggest, most beautiful specimen In the herd? Does the sheepman choose the weakling to be the sire of his fu ture flocks? The same law applies In wheat raising, ln corn raising, ln po tato raising and In fruit growing. It Is all a part of the science of farm ing, and must be studied and prac ticed if farming is brought up to l'-s highest standard." 5 Parker and Davis Are Carry ing Out the Last' Program of the Campaign.
