the occasion being the sixth annual
Wallowa County Fair, which promises
this yar to be the moet successful

gible to .competition from Umatilla,
Union, Baker and Wallowa counties.
The fairs in that county have greatly
stimulated the breeding of a better
quality of stock. During the past year
many . highly bred dairy cattle have
teen Imported and these will all be on
exhibition. The hog show will alonj
be worth seeing. It Is expected that

I. TROTTER UHLAN 13 PAR
TICULAR PIECE
HORSEFLESH.
OF
Uhlan, the world's champion
trotter, Is a mighty particular
piece . of horseflesh when It
comes to drinking water. Not
so very long ago Tom Logan,
who Is proud of. being .Uhlan's
valet, hit upon the plan of fur
nishing Uhlan with spring water
to drink. Tom figured he would
give the gelding a treat for a
few days, but he had no lnten
: tions of continuing the practice.
When Lognn tried to change
from spring water to the old va
riety for Uhlan there was noth
ing doing. The star performer
positively refused . to drink.
That's why Logan makes a five
mile trip on a motorcycle every
morning to provide Uhlan with
spring water to drink.
