Mrs. W. C. Jackson, of Shedd, was in
Albany yesterday looking for her 17
year old son, Ellsworth, whom she has
not seen or heard of for several weeks.
Ellsworth had been driving a team in
the country and about two weeks ago
came to Albany and stayed at the house
of W. J. Bilyeu. That night he went
to bed with one of the men and slept
on late in the morning. Sometime be
fore noon when someone went to the
room, the boy had gone and Mrs. Bilyeu
naturally supposed that he had gone
home. - The mother's anxiety for herv

Eight Miles of Fence
"Coyote-proof fence, fifty-nine
inches high and eight miles long,
was used to fence in 2,560 acres.
In three : months 136 coyotes
came to the fence and not one
got ' through. They were on
hand for seventy-two out of the
ninety-five daysV Seven grizzly
bears and eight brown bears got
through the fence. Black bears,
bobcats, lynx, badgers, and elk
also came nosing the barriers.
The grizzly bears passed in by
going through the six-inch space
petween the woven wire and the
first barbed wire above, or
through the eight-inch space be
tween the two top barbed wires.
The claws of the hind feet were
hooked into the meshes of the
woven wire, giving tne - Dear a
pull to force bis body through.
The band of sheep consisted
of 1,200 ewes and their increase,
1,009 lambs, At the season's
end, September 25, the sheep,
experimented on, were turned
back to the owner. The count
gave a total of 2,194, a loss of
fifteen since June 21, when the
animals were turned into the
pasture. The coyote-proof fence
gave them 1 free, unmolested
grazing, and they .began to out
grow their herding methods!
There was less massing, less
trailing, v :less close-bunched
grazing. This change is- good

Attorneys Bryson, McFadden and
Denman are back from court at Toledo.
It was fully expected that a four-day
grand jury session would be held, but
Attorney Bryson hustled the session
through in a day and a half, a wholly
unprecedented proceeding. Mr. Den
man had three cases at court, two of
them divorce cases in which he won for
his clients. One of these was a dusky
Indian belle. In the third case he in
duced his client to plead euilty. 1 The
attorneys generally prefer Toledo to
any as a court town, this because they
alwaya-get something good to eat over
there. However, one of the local t at
torneys in order to keep his stomach
from getting used to anything better
than he has at home, is in the habit of
carrying his meals with him in a grip.
Mrs. S. S. Landis and mother, Mrs.
Card, of Baker City, arrived here today
and with their old . friends, Dr. and
Mrs. J. R. N. Bell, proceeded on to
Newport, where the latter two will
spend at least two weeks. The Landises
will return here shortly, it being the
purpose to enter their son Bonnie hi
the Agricultural College for a four year
course. Down at the bay Dr. Bell ex
pects to harpoon a whale, take a ride
on a sea lion, and if it gets dark enough
he will go in bathing. There isn't
bathing suit at the beach large enough
to fit the Corvallis pastor so he neces
sarily has to wait until nightfall , to
make his appearance in undress un
iform. If press dispatches report
tidal wave at Newport, Corvallis people
wjll know that Dr. Bell has just butted
into old Neptune. While he is gone
the old town here will have a hard
time struggling along, but we can suffer
it in the prospect of him returning with
renewed enerey and a disposition to
to take a firmer grasp on the situation.
The age of the two bands "at
the time of final weighing was
approximately the same, yet the
average weight showed an ad
vantage of -8.7 pounds in favor
of the animals from the coyote -proof
pasture. After being han
dled under the pasturage system
for three months, between the
ages of three and six months,

Fence Costs Heavily
The chief drawback to th e
system at the experimental
pasturage was the excessive cost
of the fence, which on most
grazing lands will approach
closely to $400 a mile.
Among the advantages of the
pasturage system that justify
this expenditure for fence con
1. Increased carrying capacity
of fifty per cent over, the -custo
mary herding system.
2. Heavier sheep.
3. Decrease from 3 per cent to
one-half of 1 per cent in the loss.
4 Less expense for hauling.
5. An increase in the lamb
6. Heavier and cleaner wool

The experiments were closely
watched by James T. Jardine of
the Forest Service, who will
shortly publish the results. The
coyote is the one great menace
to the sheep industry, and in ex
cluding him the fence has served
its purpose." ,
