CLACKAMAS AND ITS RESOURCES
(Continued from page 1.)
' are at Portland'! back door, and she will
rapidly consume them. The chafing
away of these big forests wilt rapidly and
greatly Increase )he'llv stock rapacity
of this county. After the timber la taken
oft tills land U Is yet a heavy expense to
clear It of the large stumps that remain,
In order to put It Into condition for plow
ing and general cultivation. It Is a very
mult expense, however, to burn off the
brush and tree tops and put In condition
ior pasturing, and there Is no easier,
surer place to Ret a catch of grs.-ui th:tn
on these fresh burns, where grass grows
well for a few years. Most of this land Is
well adapted to the growing of clover and
the grasses common to the- country, and
much, of it will be grased by cattle, sheep
and horses. There will be much land
opened up to dairying, and with good,
convenient shipping facilities this Indus
try will, no doubt, grow to considerable
proportions. There Is no doubt, too. that
it will become quite a hog growing sec
tion. It Is generally well watered. Clo
ver and rape, the two great feeds for
growing the hog. thrive well. IVas are
hard to beat for fattening the hog. and
this part of the country Is well adapted
to their production
When Tortland gets her big packing
plant, which will hare a tendency to
stimulate the production of pork, we shall
expect to see Clackamas furnishing a
great many more hogs than she Is now
Among those most actively engaged in
the breeding of pure bred stock we might
mention Hon. Richard Scott, of Milwau
kee, proprietor of Twyford Stock and
Dairy Farm. He came to Portland In
18T0, and started in 1874 on Ross Island.
He afterward moved to a place below
Portland on Mnnton road. In he
bought the farm where he now lives, of
StO acres. Ho milks about 60 cows for
the Portland trade. Mr. Scott has been
conducting a dairy ranch and running a
milk wagon into Portland for a number
of years. He maintains a herd of reg
istered Shorthorns and that blood largely
predominates in his dairy. He has al
ways pinned his faith to the Shorthorn
for the dairy, and his success along that
line cannot be doubted when we remem
ber that he has a cow at St. Iran of his
own breeding that is taking the lead of
all the 2b cows of that blood up to the
present time. Twyford also keeps a fine
flock of Cotswold and Dorset
sheep. So far as we are advised, he has!
the only Hock of Dorse ts in the state.
For early market lambs they are very
norular where better known, and are the
only breed of sheep from which you can
secure lambs at any season desired. He
also breeds large English Yorkshire hogs,
known among the silver brethren as the
li to 1 breed 16 pigs to one 'sow and
sometimes more. Thousand headed kale
is the great forage crop with Mr. Scott.
He thinks it much preferable to silage.
A few miles above Oregon City we rind
TV. J. V. Mi-Cord an 1 Geo. L.'izelle on
adjoining farms, the former breeding Jer
seys and the later Rep Polls. They are In
a locality that has adopted the very' good
old motto: "A little wife well willed ind a
little farm well tilled." and so are not
extensively engaged in the business, but
have some good blood and Individuals in
their respective linns. Mr. M'Cord has
at the head of his herd the bull King's
O. Exile, out of the Coomassie cow.
King's Gazelle, and sired by Oregon
Exile. This bull was bred by Mr. D. H.
Looney. The females of this herd are
largely of the Coomassie and St. Lam
Mr. Lazelle's select herd of Red Polls
Is headed by Lacy. Mr. Laxelle showed
this bull at Salem In his two-year old
form, when he won first in the class anl
sweepstakes. He was In fine bloom wh.-n
seen by a Rural Spirit man recently, and
is apt to make some trouble again this
fall among the red boys without horns.
The blacl faced shep are very popular
mutton prooucers and of ail the breeds
of this ciast. perhaps none are more
widely popular than the Shropshire, and
among their most ardent admirers and
hearty supporters are the Schmidt Bros.,
of Shubel, Oregon. They have only been
In the business a few years, but no one
ever forged to the front any faster In
their line. When they go into the show
ring they are pretty sure to return with a
ribbon of about the right , complexion
The boys are adding a few Shorthorns,
and if they use the same care and Judg
ment with them they have with the
Bhrops, thy will succeed.
There seems to be but one herd of
Herefords in the county. They are the
property of J. R. Shaver, sheriff of the
county. He ought to be able to handle
them about right, since he has the law
and authority on his side. He not only
has that, but he has one of the largest
and finest farms in the county. The ap
pearance of a Rural Spirit artist in their
rich pastures was considered an Intru
sion that they would not stand for, and
while he was focusing they were busy
bunting a change of pasture. He only
succeeded in catching a few of them at
water. The manager being away we
could not get any notes on the breeding
of the cattle, but it was evident they
were bred right to furnish Portland some
choice cuts of 'steaks and roasts, manu
factured on the nutritious grasses of
On Grlbble's Prairie S. O. Gribble has
a fine herd of Jerseys. He recently sold
to Warren Gray, of Molalla, three fine
cows. His stock is from the Dimlck,
Looney and Snell herds, and is one of
the best In the state. He baa about 20
cows now left and some young stock.
Hon. W. H. Vaughan has the pure
bred Shorthorn bull Seaforth Royal 135,
231, by Royal Commander, out of Sea
forth Spray by Illustrious Duke, tracing
to Imported Honeysuckle. He is a fine
specimen of the Shorthorn stock and as
highly bred as any in the state. An ex
cellent picture of both owner and bull ap
pears in this issue. Mr. Vaughan is a
pioneer of 1643 and now In his 83d year,
and has resided on his place for 68 years.
What appears to be wanting in the
number of fine horses, seems to be made
up In a measure In quality. W. A.
Shaver, of Molalla. recently purchased
the Percheron stallion Baucis, Imported
from France by Sigmaster & Sons, of
Keota, Iowa. Hi foreign register Is
$1371. and American 24020. The price
paid for him by Mr. Shaver was 11800.
Oak Grove farm, owned by J. W.
Dowty, of Currinsvllle. breeds Shorthorn
cattle, Percheron horses, Berkshire bogs
and Bronze turkeys. His first berd bull
In this state waa Oak Hill Lad, from
C. E. Ladd'f Oak HIH farm. Net came
the Bate bred Bull Lard G Wynne, and
Dow be la using Minotnre, another of
Ladd'a breeding by Baron I.lnwood 10th,
and out of Medba. There are about SO
Shorthorns In the herd and always some
young stock for sal. The bi-onse tur
keys are a fine lot and surely they ought
to be. as Mr. Dowty has secured fresh
blood from the leading breeder of a
hnlf-dosen or more eastern states. He
sells breeding stock and also make a
specialty of supplying his Portland cus
tomers with choice birds on holiday oc
casions. The editor of this Journal can
attest to hla success along this line.
Ohas. Bartholomew has recently lo
cated In the county near Eagle Creek,
and is breeding Poland China hogs, and
will add a herd of Shorthorns. There Is
room for more.
Near the northern edge of Clackamas
county and adjacent to the line of the
O. W. P. company are the farms of Chas.
Cleveland. V. W. Cotton, Mr. Duirell and
Richard Wilson. Mr. Cleveland breeds
Jerseys, Shropshire sheep, Shetland po
ni-s and driving horses. His 150-acre
farm adjoining the town of Givsham la a
mod. 'I of excellence. It is a country home
that anv lover of the beautiful would at
once covet. Near this and farmed In
connection with It he has another farm
of ITS acres. These farms are devoted
principally to pasture and hay for the
maintenance of the stock kept and to the
cultivation of potatoes, a very' profitable
crop for this locality. A leading feature
In connection with Mr. Cleveland's opera
tions Is the winter boarding of city hors
es. His sou Charley guards the welfare
of the Shropshire with a Jealous eye
md sees that their wants are supplied
He will show a bunch of them at the
State Fair this fall.
Few farms are as nicely appointed and
as well arranged as the 2"H)-acre tract of
Attorney W. W. Cotton of this city. The
farm Ilea Just west of Greaham. along the
electric line of the O. W. P. Co. The
farm Is sightly and attractive Mil operat
ed in a scientific and up-to date manner.
On the farm are tine orchards of cherries,
chestnuts and English walnuts, and a
11 acre hop yard. The huiMini: are com

A very' profitable Industry in Clackamas
county Is raising turkeys, conditions be

HOW TO PREVENT FOREST FIRES.
Commissioner Richards Offers Sugges
tions In a Circular.
Every- summer and autumn large areas
of public and private forests are devas
tated by fire. This destruction is a uni
versal injury. It not only destroys a
valuable asset ln the list of the coun
try's resources, hut Is productive of
floods. The forest is the most effective
means of preventing floods and produc
ing a more regular flow of water for ir
rigation and other useful purposes. To
prevent the mischievous forest fires con
gress has enacted a law which forbids
leaving fires (camp fires and others)
without first extinguishing the same. The
law provides a maximum fine of 15000,
or imprisonment for two years, or both,
if the fire is set maliciously, and a fine
of 11000 or imprisonment for one year,
of the fire is due to carelessness. It also
provides that the money from these fines
goes to the school funds of the county
in which the offense Is committed.
Commissioner W. A.' Richards, of the
jeneral Land ofh'e, has Issued circulars,
warning the public against carelessness,
inasmuch as many fires start from ne
glected camp fires, and makes the fol
1. Do not build a larger fire than you
2. Do not build your fires in dense mas
ses of pine leaves, duff and other com
bustible material, where the fire is sure
3. Do not build your fire against large
logs, especially rotten logs, where it re
quires much more work and time to put

pend, and where you are rarely quite
certain that the fire la really and com

places dig a fire hole and clear off a place
to secure your fire. Tou will save wood
5. Every camp fire should be complete
ly put out before leaving camp.
6. Do not build fires to clear off land
and for other similar purposes without
informing the nearest ranger or the su
pervisor, so that he may assist you.
Am hunters, fishers and campera will
soon haunt the woods and streams, It Is
hoped that newspapers everywhere will
circulate this warning and Information.
Escaped An Awful Fate.
Mr. H. Hag gins, of Melbourne, Fls
writes: "My doctor told me I had Con
sumption and nothing could be done for
me. I waa given up to die. The offer of
a free trial bottle of Dr. King's New Dis
covery for Consumption Induced me to
try It. Results were startling. I am now
on the road to recovery and owe all to
Dr. King's New Discovery. It surely
saved my life." This great cure la guar

FIERC1 BATTLE AT PORT ARTHUR.
Entire Japanese Fleet Bombards City
Heavy Losses of Men.
London. Aug. 10. The Chefoo corres
pondent of the London Dally Telegraph,
on of that newspaper's most reliable
men. under date of August . states that
two messengers have arrived there from
Port Arthur, who bring an account of
the most desperate lighting of the war,
which ts said to have begun last Sunday
and contlned for three days.
According to the correspondent, the
Japanese, following their rapture of Wolf
HIM? immediately begun to prepare for
an assault upon the chain of forts which
line the limits of the town. Brigade nf
ter brigade moved out, until finally three
div isions of Japanese troops occupied a
position stretched entirely across the
country beyond Port Arthur. So far as
could be seen from the town, the attack
ing forces were so disposed that they
were enabled to attack In four divisions,
the two central of which were much the
strongest numerically. After the Jap
anese had disposed of their forces, they
begun a cannonading, the strength of
which was yery much greater than any
which the garrison had previously ex
perienced. For four hours the enormous
siege guns poured hundreds of pounds of
metal Into the Russian fortifications, and
many of the garrison were killed or
wounded before nightfall caused the en
euiv to cease Us efforts.
At dawn the next day the Japanese.
massed on the extreme right of the fort -
mined forward, und the Russian
nuns opened on them. Little daunted for
a time, they made a desperate effort to
capture the smaller of the forts, but the
rltte and artillery tire of the Russians
was so deadly that the attacking party
was forced to retreat before more than
half the distance had been covered.
Shortly afterward the entire Japanese
fleet, which had taken up a position be
hind the peninsula, began a lonk-range
bombardment of tT.e town. Pursuant to
outers, the Russian fleet sailed out to !
distract the Japanese warships, und a :
naval conflict at long range was Immedi

COMPANY FURNISHES THE SOUP.
Innovation Introduced In Construc
tion Work at Oregon City.
Soup houses were a nece.-'iry institu
tion during the hard times of 1W3 under
Democratic administration. but since
that time there has been no need for
them. But the Willamette Pulp & Paper
gompany has inaugurated an innovation :
in the treatment of the H50 laborers that .
are employed on the compay'a construc
tion work In this city. I
Several days ago some of the laborer i
complained to the mill management of !
the alleged Insufficiency of the lunche j
with which they were served by the i
boarding houses. They contended that j
the diet was not sufficiently strengthen
ing when It was considered that hard
manual labor was required of the men.
The company Immediately solved the
problem by arranging for the serving of
hot soup every day to Its large force of
construction laborers. The soup Is served
the men at the noon hour In connection
with the lunch that they bring from their
respective places of boarding.
The soup Is prepared ln a small build-
ir t..m..elt,Mv nrovided for the DUrPOSO.
