Rumors are current" on the
street of horse races thatare to take
place at the Kiger track tomorrow.
In one, Gene Tortora is matching
P. A. Kline's horse against George
Brown's for a quarter mile dash.
In another race, the Tortora mare,
ridden by Mike Kline, is to go
against the Brown horse a. quarter
of a mile. In a third race, the
Tortora mare goes against the
Brown horse a quarter of a mile
and gives t'le latter a lead of a foot
for every pound it is outweighed by
the mare. This will give the horse
a lead of 172 1-2 feet. The Torto
ra mare, weighed 1,045 pounds
when put on the scales Wednesday.
Four ring-necked pheasants,
better known as the English pheas
ant, were recently received from
Chicago by Samuel Bane. They
are all male birds-and are to be add
ed to Mr. Bane's pheasant yards, in
which he has several ' varieties, in
cluding Mongolian, Amherst and
Golden. A dozen female ring
necks are expected : to arrive next
week from Cape Cod, Massachu
setts. A letter from there received
a day or two ago, related that the
birds were at large in a fifty acre
lot and that they were getting so
much feed on the outside that they
would not follow the bait into the
nets where they could be snared for
Contractor Mitchell is wrest
ling with the problem of a scarcity
of men on the pipe line. Only 14
men were at work on the ditch a
day or two ago, when fifty would
have more nearly represented the
number wanted by the contractor.
A gang of 25 men was brought
from Portland 'Some time ago, but
after a short time thev left tn trn in
to railroad work in Southern Ore
gon. Later, a gang was brought
from Dayton, Oregon, but some of
these have gone elsewhere. The
- wages paid is 22 1-2 cents per hour,
with an allowance of an hour per
day on l full pay for going to and
from work. The railroad activity
in various parts of the Northwest
probably has much to do with the
scarcity of laboring men. It will
probably continue so all summer.

at the right time to protect a blind

AFRICTION PUKSUES THEH.t;
It is the surmise of Prof. CordJ quartette is, George Cathey, first
ley that the cold spell will be dead'
ly.in its effects on myriads of San
Jose scale, and that out of such
damage as may have been wrought
by the chill there ' will come some
benefit. At the beginning of win
ter usually there is a generation of
San Jose scale but half grown.
They usually survive the winter
and constitute a very large stock on
hand for the" ensuing season. Up
to the arrival of the cold wave; they
had survived the current winter,
but it is considered very possible
- by ProfV Cordley that; the resultant
low temperatures have chilled them
. to death by the myriads. If so,
the fact will be manifest later on.
when by lifting the lid to the scale
the bright yellow spot below, which
is in reality the insect, .will be seen
to have turned to a brown, indicat
ing that the hated little scoundrel
is no more. .--,
Isadore Jacobs was tbe-victim
of a serious accident late'Tuesday
evening. He was in the act of as
cending the stone steps at the court
house entrance. When almost at
the top, he stumbled and fell. In
some unaccountable way, he seem
ed to sink down and roll backward,
in which position, with his head
downward he slid on his back the
entire flight. When he finally stop
ped, his head was resting on the
bottom step with his body and low
er limbs slanting up the steps. He
; did not move after his fall, and peo
pie hurried to the spot expecting to
, find him unconscious. He w?s
quickly carried home and surgeons
summoned, who found that his
. 'principal injury was the tearing
. away of some ; of the ligaments of
the knee. Strange to say, his head
and back were not injured though
they appeared to those who watch
ed to have btrmped their way suc
cessively down each step of the
' long stone flight. Accompanied by
his sister, Miss Eda Jacobs, the vic
tim of the accident was taken to
Portland Wednesday, - to enter a
Mrs. John Day U Stricken With Ty
phoid at Forest Grove.
A few, days ago Mrs. John Day,
in whose family there were recently
three deaths from typhoid fever,
went to Forest Grove accompanied
by her only, remaining child, Ben
nie, to be with friends in rthat local
ity for a time. Mr. Day himself-.
remained in Corvallis but on Wed
nesday he was called to the bedside
of. bis wife. - When he was sum
moned, her illness was not thought
to be serious, but a letter received
here yesterday . conveys the sad
news that Mrs. Day is prostrated
from typhoid' fever.
Much concern is felt concerning
Mrs. Day's illness. ' It is known
that her vitality was much reduced
in consequence of the wearying
care of the afflicted family and the
nervous strain as a result of her
late bereavements, and she is poor
ly fortified to withstand the attack
of typhoid. It would seem that
the family had already experienced
their share of trouble.
A Cattle Food Alleged to be a Good
Substitute for' Oil Heal.
The O. A. C. experiment station
has discovered the bogus character
of feed that is on the market, for
which there is a claim that it is a
good substitute for oik meal. Its
price is slightly cheaper, but chem
ical analysis shows that in food val
ue it is not even as good as clover
hay, though its promoters allege it
to be as good or better than oil
cake. The name of the preparation
is "CafrocaOil Cake Meal." It is
1 not the only 'fraud " on the market,
the high price of mill feeds having
encouraged the manufacture of, sub
stitutes. The principal nutriment
with which dairymen are concerned
is protein, and oil cake is prized for
this substance" ' Cafroca contains
only 9.20 per cent ot protein, while
the common oil meal' c6n tains 33.2.
Cafroca is not even" as1 rich in pro
tein as good clover hay. Besides,
it contains a very large per cent of
crude fibre , being 41.59 per cent,
while oil meal only" Contains 9.5 per
cent. Dairymen should be careful
in purchasing this of" any other sub
stitute for oil meaP or other mill
feed. The commercial- price ot
nearly all 'these substitutes, as
shown by analysis at the experi
ment station, is altogether dispro
portionate to their food value.
