BY PORTLAND VETERINARY
How They Operated on a Benton Coun
ty Horse OAC Students Looked '
A horse was the subject of a sur
gical operation out on the College
farm Wednesday.- The operator
was Dr. McLain, the well known
veterinary surgeon of Portland.
The horse was a valuable three
year old, owned by William Knotts.
A lump of bony matter on the
jaw immediately below the eye,
supposed to have been caused by a
bad tooth, was the object that it
was proposed by the operation to
remove. A class of students in the
agricultural course eyed the pro
ceedings with keenest interest, as
did several bystanders. In spite
of the severe character of the op
eration, no anesthetic was admin
istered. The statement is that an
esthetics are bad for horses and
should not be used except in ex
treme cases. In this case the horse
was thrown by the methods famil
iar to horsemen. He was then
bound securely in many places so
that it was practically impossible
for him to move enough to disturb
the operator. During the throwing
process the animal fought manfully
bawling sometimes in a voice that
sent a thrill of awe through ' the
In the operation, a slit was made
in the skin the entire length of the
lump. Then with an . instrument
resembling an auger, the bony sub
stance of the lump was attacked,
and parts of it were bored away.
In the operation quantities of dry
ish substance were removed, ; and
the belief is that in the course of
time, the unsightly lump, which by
its prominence disfigured the noble
animal, will disappear. After the
cutting and boring process, no an
tiseptics were applied which occas
ioned remark, but say those things
are never applied in ordinary horse

SHERIFF HAS IT.
Berry's Stock of Sporting and Bicycle
Goods Shop is Open Again to
" In a room over at the county
court house is the stock of sporting
goods and bicycle appliances that
recently formed the store of James
Berry. The stock is in the custody
of Sheriff Burnett, with indications
that it may become the subject of
more or less litigation. The sher
iff does not know what minute he
will be sued by Berry for possession
The manner by which the goods
were seized is unusual. The debt
on which it was attached was not
due, a part till next September,
and the rest not tilL September,
1906. The legal questions raised in
consequence are said to be numer
ous. Rumors are flying around to
the effect that there might not
only be suit against the sheriff; for
seizing the .property, but against
the plaintiff, Mr. Fischer. In any
event, it looks now like the stock
would be tied up in the sheriff s
hands until the November teim of
the circuit court, -when there can
be an adjudication of the rights of
Meantime, the sheriff is right
handy with firearms and fishing
tackle, and with every shape of
gun, revolver, and fishing appliance
that the world knows of, it will be
his own fault if he doesn't have a
good time. Meantime, also, Ber
ry's shop is open again for business
The law cannot take his tools away
from a workman. They are his
means of livelihood, and have been
wisely placed beyond ' the reach of
sheriffs, writs and debts. The ap
praisement showed the value of the
stock to be about $700.

For a long time. $20.30 has beenan
unexpended, balance carried over
year to year, by the county treasur

cycle road fund that for a year or
two'engaged so much attention. It
was paid in by bicycle riders when
wheeling was more of a pastime
with the multitude than it is now.
A state law required every wheel
man to pay the tax, which was
directed to be expended in build
ing bicycle paths. When the, law"

it so remained until Wednesday,
when the county court, wearied
with its presence as an entry on
the treasurer's books and reports,

road fund of the county, where it
can be used, not on bicycle path

Their Wedding Anniversary.
Wednesday was the forty-seventh

latter eighties. Mr, Moses filled a
number of. ministerial charges in
his church. In 1890, he took charge
