RGLIEP TO HOMESTEADERS.
Attention of Secretary Ballin
ger has been called to conditions
in certain western statea, where
owing to tho dry season, it has
been impossible for homestead
settlers to raise crops during the
past year. Several hundred ap
plications for leave of absence
have boon received by the inter
ioi department as a result of
these climatic conditions, and tho
secretary has instructed tho com
missioner of the general land
office to grant theso applications
wherever possible.
It is one of the pre-requisits
that settlers shall have establish
ed a residence upon tho land, but
where this is done and it is evi
dent that'owing to tho failure of
crops the settler cannot mako a
living and is obliged to leave in
order to earn money, Secretary
Ballinger has directed the com-

In his annual report Secretary
Wilson touches upon tho dry
farming investigations of tho
Agricultural Department and
has this to say of tho Rocky
mountain country, generally:
"Tho results of tho investiga
tion in crop rotations and culti
vation methods in tho great
plains region cast of tho Rocky
mountains and west of tho 98th
meridian have been of unusual
value and interest during tho
past season. Drought, moro or
less severe, has been experienced
from Montana nnd North Dakota
to Texas. At Williston Edgelcy,
North Dakota, tho conditions
were so severe that all crops were
practical failures, although tho
most approved methods of mois
ture were use 1 on some of the
plats; but even hero many valu
able lessons were learned, and if
tho drought had boon less pro
longed, very remarkable differ
ences would have been observed
in the yields duo to different
methods of cultivation and crop
rotation. This brings out very
strongly these two important
facters:
"(1). No system has yet been
devised that will insure crops
during periods of as severe
drought ns occurs in this acgion,
nnd (2) properly planned and
executed rotations nnd tillage
methods will greatly reduce tho
loss by droughts of only moder
ate severity, such as frequently
occur here. These same methods
will also increase tho yields and
net profits during favorable
years.
Tho main point established by
tho investigation up to tho pre
sent time are as follews: (1)
Crop rotations calculated to con
servo tho organic matter as well
as the moisture in the soil arc
tho main dependence to guard
against loss from deficient rain
fall. (2) The effects of rotations
are cumulative, and these inves
tigations must be conducted sys
tematically through a long term
of years and at many stations in
order to establish a safe basis for
a permanent agriculture."
tljclr sido of tho case has never
been presented to tho public fair
ly, whilo on tho other hand thoy
chargo the agitation that has
arisen against them to the mud
slinger and muckrakcr in tho
sensational magazines.

INDUSTRIAL NOTES.
(Portland Correspondence.)
When tho annual convention of
tho National Wool Growers'
-Association opens in Portland
January 4, it will bo tho biggest
and most important gathering of
sheep raisers in America for
years. Questions of vital impor
tance to tho sheep industry are
to bo considered nnd tho future
policy of tho wool interests will
bo outlined.
Accoring to thoso high in tho
councils of tho organization, little
support for tho wool men may bo
oxpected cither from President
Taf t or tho next Congress. Both,
it seems, aro determined to lead
Schedule K to tho slaughter in
revising tho tariff bill. Tho
friends of tho threatened schedule
would lcavo tho subject to tho
tariff board but it is said Presi
dent Taft feels that tho public
oxpects further tinkering with
the rates on woolens nnd he is
determined to accedo to their
demands.
It is felt by tho wool mon that

under construction to Crater
Lake from Medford is said by
experts to bo superior any on this
continent or through tho Alps in
tho grandeur of its scenery.
Road experts of tho Government
in charge of tho work says the
new highway will havo no super
ior any whero and characterize the
work as "Forty five miles of
macadanizing through tho great
est scenic section of tho world."
Tho Oregon Agricultural Col-
lego will commence its annual
special short courses for farmers
on January 3 and tho instruction
to bo offered this year is proba
bly the best since theso courses
were started several years ago,
Experts in tho various branches

OUR PRODUCTS MAKING GOOD.
President Leonard of tho Com
mercial Club received a letter
last week from a Michigan man
who had Been tho Hnrnoy county
display of products in the Hill
advertising car and was very
much interested and wrote for
further information upon the
suggestion of Mr. Graham who
is in charge of tho care."
Mr. Leonard left the letter at
this office for tho purpose of giv
ing a portion of it publicity, but
it has been misplaced. Tho man
staled, enthusiastically that Har
ney county products excelled
Michigan and that shown in the
car was certainly fine.
It is a pleasure to find that tho
display is attracting favorable
comment in competition with
other sections although grown
during an unfavorable season.
