If a man has 160 acres he takes pains to cultivate well, and as a Consequence of deeper cultiva tion and more thorough tillage his cnop yields well, while the larger farm hot so well plowed, will dry out and suffer loss if their comes a dry season like the present.: The Budget should prove its theory by observation, and get the ex perience of different farmers in Morrow county to judge by. If he can show that where land was deeply plowed and well harrowed and pulverized the crop was good, when it failed in other loca tions, he will be of ' great service in teaching the necessity for deep plowing. He will make his farmers more careful and secure good crops for the future tor that section of the state. Oregonian. :.' Johnsto-vrn Again Menaced . Johnstown, July 3.
