That the hydrophobia scare of Wal

Ui'lcn county is attested to by the
following from, the Sunday Oregon-
The Bureau of Animal Industry has
now taken np the crusade against the
coyotes In Wallowa county that have
(one mad and bitten many dogs, sheep
and . cattle, and probably will have
charge of the government rangers who
will be detailed to assist in their ex
termination. A telegram was received
from Washington, D.' C, yesterday
raying that seven rangers and expert
hunters have been detailed and that
others will follow. t ,
Residents of Union county have be
come alarmed for fear the mad coy-'

Dobbin of Wallowa county, who is at
tending the woolgrowers' convention,
teceived a telegram yesterday, asking
him to use his influence to have the
commissioners' of Wallowa county
raise the bounty so that greater effort
will be made to' exterminate the coy
Dr. W, H. Lytle, state veterinarian,
will go to Wallowa county Tuesday
and .probably take temporary cbarge
of the forces that will wage war on
the coyotes until they are assembled
and representatives of the Bureau of
. l
Animal Industry organize them and
enter upon an active compalgn of ex
termination. Since the announcement
that a campaign of extermination will
be waged against the coyotes Dr. Ly
tle has received several applications
from individuals who assert them
selves to be expert hunters and trap
pers. Neither -the state veterinarian
nor the state board of health has any
funds to hire such help it was exr
plained to Dr. Lytle.
Professor Pernot who has charge
of the examination of the brains of
the coyotes, dogs and sheep that have.
died of rabies in Wallowa county, ex
pects soon to have serum from the
backbone of a rabbit that was inocu

removing the necessity of shipping it

Men Who Buy Parts and Repair Their
Instruments at Home.
One's notion .of piano hardware is
likely to be that It is material of vari
ous sorts used In the manufacture and
repair of pianos, an idea that would
be in the main correct, but at. the
same time there is more or less of
such material Bold at retail to private
owners of pianos who may be skilled
In the use of tools and who undertake
to do their own repairing to save ex
pense, and such purchasers may in
elude men who have no knowledge of
music, though they may have the me
chanical expertness required for; the
Obviously no great skill Is required
In replacing a' broken caster. A man
can buy a single caster and put It on
himself If he wants to, or he could in
like manner replace a broken hinge or
a screw, and he can buy any of these
things. But the home repairer does
more ambitious work still as, for in
stance, he may replace, a broken wire.
He can buy piano wire of precisely
the right gauge, and he may under
take this Job and get away with It, or
he may replace one or more broken
keys or hammers. Not long since a
man who had bought a- pretty well
worn secondhand piano for $15 bought
for it a complete new set of hammers,
which he put on himself.
Only men of real skill can do such
Jobs as this, but In a town of this size
there are enough men who do their
own piano repairing to make it pay to
keep piano hardware on sale at retail',

Two Freaks of Nature.
Two contrasting freaks of nature are
the Island of Fire and tho Lake of
Enow. ' The Island of Fire is called
the Home of Hot Devils. It is situat
ed In the midst of a large lake of boil
ing mud In. the Island of Java. The
team and gases which arise from the
sticky mud form themselves Into bub- ,
bles attaining a dlanieter of five or six ;
feet and sailing high up In the air like
balloons, carried hither and thither by v
the wind and finally exploding with a
loud crash.
The biggest snow lake Is seen from
the summit of nispar pass, in the Ka
rakoran range. . It is more than 80O
square miles in area.-'. In Switzerland
the sea of ice might better he called
the sea of snow, ns the surface Is bro
ken up by solar heat, which makes a
minute Assuring In the Ice, giving It
the appearance of snow.

Commenting on the unhappy rela

Goldwin Smith wrote in one of his last

ens had married at a low level, and his
wife had not risen with him; otherwise
there was no fault on her side. The
- matrimonial history of writers of
works of imagination has often been
unhappy. , Their Imagination turns the
woman Into an angel, and men tney
find that she Is a woman."
