Saw Era, March S4.-Raip again, but it
ctn ilo no rlatnase 1 present. If it contin
ue cohl nl rainy tor a long time it will
certainly cause some ganlen to be re
planted. Warner Grange 117 met at tbeir hall In
New Era Saturday. A small crowd was in
attendance, there being only about twenty
five. The contest between the two literary
leader, George McArtlinr and Mary Wal
dron and their assistants, for the greatest
number of eredlts to be gained was won by
George McArthur and bis followers. The
aide losing the contest is to furnish a grange
dinner. The leaders for the next contest
are Mary Waldron and H. A. Waldron, or
the married people f the grange re 10 com
pete with the unmarried ones. The grange
at this place is growing rapidly. The cause
for the n.crease is the applicants for mem
bership see the advantages to be gained.
Eight new names were proposed for mem

One of the Esterfbis correspondents
asked last week for acure for the "stills ' in
borses. . I will here give my opinion of the
disease or ailment. I have lived in Clacka
mas county ever since 1W8, and my father
was here sixteen years before me, and we
have never yet had a horse with stiffs or
ataggers, and we never saw a horse with the
stiffs in the summer time. So I lay the
cause of the complaint to the condition of
the stable and the lack ot care and good
treatment of the horse. In the first place
the horse should have a good warm, clean,
dry stable, with a good ventilation. He
should have plenty of salt and water, and
iffedor. dry food should have potatoes or
carrots three or four times a week. II a
horse is driven until he gels warm and is
then allowed to take cold when be stops
that will help to bringon the stiffs asquickly
as anything. When you hire a horse from
a livery stable to drive out and be gone over
night they always send blankets along to
blanket him with. Did you ever hear of a
livery stable burse dying with the stiffs?
Currying a horse saves considerable feeding
and does him much good.
