of the window out of sight of the de

.With the gloo mof a few weeks ago
hovering over them a to poor crops,
ranchers In Powder valley who have
finished their hay harvest and those
who have become well along in the
work, have been subjected to a most
pleasant surprise, for from every hand
comes the report that the hay crop of
this section Is to be a big one, says the
On the old Garren ranch which Is
being farmed this year by J T. Mas
ters, It Is claimed there never has been
raised such splendid hay. Those car

possible to handle the heavy growth,
nd the sight that meets people's eves
who pasa the hayfleld Invariably causes
thorn to stop and Investigate. When
harvest hands first entered the fields
It was thought three tons tn th
would be a big crop, but as they start

that four tons to the acre ts s reason
Other ranchers report a similar
showing, and the Indications are that
hay will be very plentiful and of a
superior quality. And with this con
dition comes the Information from the
commission men at Portland that the
prices of hay this year will not be
high. It Is a known fact that nothing
has a tendency to regulate the nriea
of hay here as the prices paid for that
commodity In Portland. O. W. Pimp
son, one of the largest commission
men In the metrooplls, has Just fin
ished a trip through the hay-producing
regions of Idaho, where he contracted
for several hundred tons at $8. billed
and loaded. This price was for the
highest grade, and for the averase
grade he contracted fur $7; ue also

made no contracts here.
