steer is gone.. As I could see
for myself, the only cattle; he
had on the ranch at the time was
this steer, a broken legged steer
and a Jersey cow. The cripple
steer was in sight - so was the
cow, so the diseased one was
butchered. ; I know . this for.,,
had been working on the ranch
nearly every day for two weeks
previous to this. . Now; as to that
"grouch" -I had had no trouble
with Mr. Ballard till the other
night; he met me and my son. in
the roadcalled me vile names
and threatened to do violence.
I reported .the . matter - to Mr.
Bryson asking for protection
from his office, or I would take
steps .to protect ;;, myself - from
Ballard. Up-to-date I have re
ceived no word, from Mr. Bryson.

SPECIAL CORRESPONDENCE "OF THE CHICAQ9
EUGENE, Oregon, Sept. 27.
1909 You can . recognize the
thriving town of Eugene by the
pretty rose garden which the
ladies of the place have planted
around the railway station. It
gives people whq pass through a
pleasant impression, and the de
parting stranger i : goes ! ; away
with an attractive picture on'
the retina of his eyes. If the.
women of every town on every
railroad would follow, this ex
ample it would improve , the ap
pearance of the earth's surface
and make life happier for "all of.
The women of Eugene " have
also built a rest house in a pub
he square in the center of -the
business section, where, the f arm
ers' wives can eat- their lunch
eons and nurse their babies and '-
find r toilet conveniences whil -
their husbands are out attending
to business. There hr& eiimttan
institutions in many New En'g.
ana towns and elsewhere in thA
east, and the first I ever saw, I
think, was at Burlinsrton ' Iowa.
