THE CORMUS GAZETTE,
TUESDAY, JUNE 19, 1900. AROUND OLD BENTON. Wheatraising; (Jiving Place to Stockraisiac ad Everybody aaa Money. A representative of the Pacific Homestead, a farming journal published in Salem, paid Benton county a visit recently. Upon his return home his paper gave the following write-up of a num ber of our enterprising farmers: The hustler went into the dis trict north of Corvallis, and turned to the right. He soon came to the farm of O. Martin, six miles northeast of Corvallis. Mr. Martin has some of the finest Ilalion prune trees the hustler has ever seen anywhere. They are about twentv feet across the top and are loaded with fruit Mr. Martin has about 700 trees in his orchard, some of them cherries and aDoles. 1 hey are protected from the wind and frost and he has never had a fruit failure. Mr. Martin has about twenty stands of bees. He says the bees in that district are starv ing and have to be fed. He says some of his neighbors are worse off in this respect than he is They don't know what is the matter. Why is it? Will some of the Homestead readers inform them, through this paper? G. I. Stonebrink lives about two miles from Mr. Martin. He is a renter. Me has a fine lot of thoroughbred Brown Leghorns. He will raise about 200 full bloods this year. Off of forty five laying hens, he got 85 dozen eggs during April and 76 dozen during May. Who can beat this? Mr. Stonebrink has tried other breeds, but he thinks there is nothing like the Leghorns for laying eggs. C. M. Smith, near King's big farm in that neighborhood, has 75 head of goats. He got 28c for his mohair. Ho says he has lost several from some kind of a disease that causes their feet to become sore. He does not think it is foot rot. What is it? That is what Mr. Smith wants some of the Homestead readers to tell him through the columns of this paper. Mr. Smith has two ranches, one of 320 acres, on which he lives, and one of 275 acres, lurtaer back in the hills. J. E. Aldnch, racently from Dakota, also lives near King's big farm. Mr. Aldrich is in the dairy business, milking 32 cows They produce 650 pounds of milk a day. It goes to the Corvallis creamery; he hauls it in every day. Mr. Aldrich says he found uaicota too cola lor mm, and so he removed to Oregon. He has a farm of 320 acres. S H Moore, recent arrival from Illinois, lives in this neigh borhood. He has bought a stock ranch of over 600 acres, and will probably invest further in land. He is going into cattle and other live stock exclusively. He was originally a farmer and stock man; then he was in the grain and commission business in II linois for ten years. He brought with him from Illinois a full blooded Hereford ball; also 80 full-blooded Chester White hogs Mr. Moere has some mule-footed hogs, having got his start from Sacred Heart, Indian Territory 1 1 ine neignDors nave oeen to see them for miles around. They are a great cunositv. Mr. Moore is a believer in farm journals. The hustler found G B Rick ard, near Philomath, shearing 750 Head 01 sheep in one band He has about 1500 more further back in the hills. Five shearers were at work. They were tak ing off good fleeces, as the sheep are Cotswolds. Mr. Rickard gets about 3 cents above the market price for his wool. He has some full-blooded Durham cattle. The hustler saw nine of the prettiest calves he has ever had the chance to admire. Mr. Rickard sold every one of his yearling heifer calves last year for $40 a head. M. Porter and brother, sons of """- iwnvti, hah. mu nuc jdims nve miles south ot Philomath. They have some fine sheep from their father's stock of Cotswolds. They sheared from one buck last year 17 Vt pounds, and all their ewes averaged 13 pounds. The weight of one ewe at shearing time was 175 pounds T. H. Cooper is the biggest rancher between Philomath and Corvallis. and he and his brother, G. W., near him, are both in the dairy business. T. H. milks 35 head, and his brother 20. They both take their milk to the Cor vallis creamery. This creamery has recently changed hands. Mr. taupisch how has charge of it, and it is thoroughly up to date, and giving good satisfaction to its patrons. S. K. Brown, about halfway between Corvallis and Philomath and a half mile off the main road to the south, has nine full blooded registered Cotswolds. One thoroughbred lamb dropped the middle of February has wool now six inches long, and is a beauty. Mr. crown's place is near the Brown's Bridge picnic grounds. Mr. Brown has 61 high grade Cotswolds besides his full bloods. He is an enthusiastic farm jour nal man. . A. Chapman is a dairyman mm r tm m ,1 Y Y one mile lrom rniiomain. ne is milking twelve cows, and the product goes to the Corvallis creamery. One of Mr. Chap man's daughters has gone into poultry raising on her own ac count. She has an incubator and brooder, and he now has five or six hundred Barred Ply mouth Rock chickens. She at tends to them herself, and the hustler believes she is going to make some money. He hopes so. She deserves it. From Kings Valley the hustler went over to Blodgett's valley. There is very little wheat here. Everything is going to live stock and the hustler thinks wisely. The Homestead man was at Glassford's ranch. Mr. Glass- ford was defeated for assessor of Benton county at the last elec tion. The hustler was also at the ranch of the successful can didate, who was elected by two votes. He is one of Mr. Glass- ford's neighbors. The finest farm in Blodgett valley is the Widow Alexander's. Mrs. Alexander has a son in business in Corvallis, a son on the farm and a daughter at school. They intend to turn the whole 500 acres of the farm to stock. The son on the farm will run it, and Mrs. Alexander may spend a good deal of her time in Corvallis. They have just fin ished a fine farm house. The hustler found the roads in fair condition. They have gen erally been worked. All through that part of the country there is no complaint of hard times, and very little talk of low wheat, be cause little wheat is raised , ex cepting for feed for stock, The hustler did not run across a "broke" man. People who raise stock, and attend them properly, are prosperous. Kings valley is as old settled as the Willamette valley. Old Fort Hoskins is at the head of the valley, three miles from Kings valley postoffice, and there is a postoffice at the old fort now called Hoskins. Graduating Class.
