tssk of re-foresting Mount Hebo, in
Tillamook county, and the beginning
of an experiment with the forestation
of the sand dunes about Gardiner, are
announced by H. L. Rankin, super
visor of the Slualaw national forest.
The Mount Hebo burn, which was
one of the largest tracts of burned-
over land in the West, was caused by
the great fire of 1861, when the In
dians set fire to the timber of the
Coast and destroyed vast areas. Much
of this was re-forested through nat-
ural agencies, but the tract In Tilla
mook county was too vast an area for
the wind to carry the tree seeds,
hence the work has had to be under
taken by man’s hand.
In all 6000
acres will have been re-planted, and
It is estimated that the whole tract
will be bearing saw timber within 40
Another tract of equal size lies in
the northwestern portion of
county, back of Cape Perpetua, and
the re forestation of this tract next

Americans Get Body of
Man Slain by Mexicana
Laredo, Tex.—A party of Ameri
cans who secretly crossed into Mexico
Sunday night brought to the American
side the mutilated body of Clemente
Vergara, Texas rancher, and estab
lished the fact of his execution after
he was seised by Mexican federate.
The invaders were not opposed, ac
complishing their search without the
slightest violence, taking the body
from a grave in Hidalgo cemetery al
most within sight of the Texas bor
der. The eel sure was divested of pos
sibly grave aspects in International
complications by reason of the fact
that the party was virtually making
use of permission granted officially by
Mexican federal authorities several
days ago for the recovery of the body.
This permission had been given to
United Stales Consul Garrett at Nue
vo Laredo, but he did not get the body
because of what ho reported as dan
gers attending the search for it in the
immediate vicinity of Hidalgo.
Vergara was shot twice through the
head and once through the neck, his
skull was crushed as by a blow from a
rifle butt and the charred fingers of
the left hand indicated that he had
been tortured before being put to
