.almost phenomenal ability aa a pianist.

EASTERN OREGONS PROMISE FOR
THE COMING FALL.
Oregon Sheep Are Recognized as Su
perior and There Is a Lively
Demand for Them.
PENDLETON, Or., July 1. C. J. Mlllis,
livestock agent of the O. R. & N. Co.,
stated here today that In all probability
shipments of sheep from Oregon to states
East from here this Fall will be greater
than ever before. These shipments will
be of both mutton and stock sheep.
As to cattle, only a dry condition of the
ranges during the Summer can cause very
general selling for shipment out of the
state. What shipments shall be made
next Fall will be to tho Pacific Coast
markets. Cattlemen are In a very inde
pendent position financially, and aro dis
posed to hold on to their beef stock, not
withstanding the high prices.
"I "have come to this state to purchase
4000 ewes for breeding purposes," says P.
T. Stevens, a sheepbreeder, living at
Montrose, Colo. "The Oregon ewes are
recognised in states east of here as being
of the highest quality, and anyone having
a band bred from ewe3 from your state is
regarded as having a band of first-class
character." Mr. Stevens came to Pendle
ton to look for; ewes, and has gone to
other towns, where he will locate ewes
which he may buy to advantage. He In
tends to ship them to his Colorado
ranches next Fall, and breed them for the
next Spring crop of lambs.

CATTLE BROUGHT 73 POUNDS GOLD.
Experience of an Idaho Man in Sup
plying: the Klondike.
Caldwell (Idaho) Record.
George Froman returned Friday from
his third trip to the gold fields of Alaska.
Tho first trip he made was in the em
ploy of Thebold Bros., who are extensive
traders In the Klondike country. His
second trip was partially on his own
hook, with C W. Cooper as a partner,
and was so successful that during the
Winter he and Cooper formed a part
nership and pui chased a band of cattle
consisting of 8S head,- a part of which
were cows and calves, but about SO head
the finest bunch of steers thit has been
shipped to the Klondike.
Mr. Froman left Caldwell about May 5
and loaded at Seattle for Skagway,
whence he freighted his stock over the
White Pass Sc Yukon Railroad to Lake
Bennett. At this point he purchased
three scows, for which he paid $1SC0, and
JIGS for repairing them. After loading
his entire outfit he was towed by the
steamer across Lakes Bennett and Marsh,
for which service he paid $100 per scow.
He then boated down Fifty-Mile River,
wrecking two of the scows. He then re
fitted and employed a tug to tow him
across Lake Lebarge, this luxury cost
ing him ?SO0 and requiring about two
After arriving at.Thlrty-MlIe River he
met some parties from Dawson, whp
wanted to buy the entire outfit, and as
George had not slept for three days and
nights, .and the prospects for setting to
Dawson meant more hard work, and per
haps the-loss of his entire outfit, he con
cluded to sell, which he did, receiving 73
pounds of gold. There was where his
troubles commenced, there being no fa
cilities for shipping the gold with safety,
so George threw It over his shoulder for
safe keeping. Hfr says he would rather
carry 00 pounds of flour on his back than
73 pounds of gold. But he gt through to
Skagway In safety, and arrived in Cald
well In 10 days.
Mr. Froman says that the rivers are un
usually low for this season of the year,
and to this fact is largely due the hard
ships they hid to encounter. While
crossing Lake Bennett, five of the steers
Jumped overboard and swam ashore, thus
causing some trouble and time before
they got them again on board.
Mr. Froman will leave the latter part of
the week with a carload of horses, and he
has already purchased 30 steers and 200
sheep at Seattle, and will take the entire
lot In, unless he finds some one who wants
them worse than he does. In that event
ho will let them go.

In preparing for the National Guard en
campment, beginning July 7, no celebra
tion of the National holiday will be held
here. On the contrary. It is probable
that there will be a great exodus of Sa
lem citizens to other towns in the Wil
lamette Valley. The local military com
pany will go to Dallas to participate In
the .celebration at that place, and it tsj
expected that a large crowd of ctvWann
will accompany the soldier boys. A num
ber of country picnics have been an
nounced and the First M. E. Sunday
school will conduct an excursion on a
river steamer. Many people will take
advantage of the present excellent train
service and go to Portland early Wednes
day morning, returning late the samo
evening. It has been suggested that thai
business houses should close their doors!
In order to give their employes a holi
day. Whether they close or not, theyl
will find business so dull that only small
forces of clerks will be necessary- Un-I
less the day should be stormy, there will
