TRAP REUGS ARE FOUND
WORKER OX ROAD SEAR EUGENE
UNEARTHS OLD IMPLEMENTS.
Marking; and -Form Attributed to
Hand Workmanship lit Time of
Hudson Bay Trapper.
EUGENE. Or., Oct. 4. (Special.)
W'hst are believed, from markings and
form, to be relics more than 100 years
old of the days when the Hudson Bay
trapper traversed the Oregon forests,
are two larjte traps recently uncovered
on the Upper McKenzie River by work
. men on the Government road crew.
The traps, which are huge affairs,
hand forged and -of odd design, were
found by Walter Boon, a resident at
. He uncovered the traps three feet
under ground, while building a new
piece of road at the foot of Deadhorse
grade just above Strawberry flats, 80
miles east of Eugene. The traps were
badly rusted and the temper -was gone,
but they remain in their form.
The band forging still is apparent.
They were found a quarter of a mile
from the old road, precluding the pos
sibility that they may have been
dropped by some pioneer crossing the
The McKenzie pass, over which the
Federal Government is now spending
$70,000 to macadamize the highway
across the summit through the Na
tional forest, is one -of the oldest routes
from Central and Eastern Oregon to
the Willamette Valley known. The
records of the Hudson -Bay Company In
London refer to it, and they refer to
the markings of the old trail placed
there by Indians probably centuries
The design used by the Indians to
mark this route was taken by the
McKenzie Roadbuilders' Club as a let
ter head a year ago from photographs
from rocks that mark the way. The
route passes directly under the snow
caps of the Three Sisters, and this
mark is formed by the drawing of
three mountain caps, under which are
several pine trees, representing pre
sumably the forests and the fish which
characterize the McKenzie Kiver.

LEGE, Corvallis, Oct 3. (Special)
The recent Grange Fair held at Mur
phy, eight miles from Grants Pass,
shows that the biggest fairs are not
always the best fairs. Murphy has two
buildings, a general store and a com
munity hall, but its real resources are
the rich farms in the immediate vicin
ity and the intelligent and progressive
citizenship of the community. Their
fair was said by R. E. Reynolds, "ex
tension 1 animal husbandman, for the
Agricultural college, to have been, one
of the most interesting and profitable
fairs that he has attended.
"For years fruit has been the prin
cipal crop," says Mr. Reynolds, "and
the farmers of the Grants Pass coun
try have the reputation .of raising some
of the best grapes that are grown any
where in the United States. Of late
years the livestock industry has been
growing in popularity until at the pres
ent time some very good stock and
dairy ranches are to' be found there."
"Horses of good quality are produced
on these farms. In the farm-team con
test seven teams were lined up for in
spection. "Some excellent Ayrshire
and Holstein dairy cattle were ex
hibited from three herds. A judging
contest with three cows, one each from
the Jersey, Holstein and Ayrshire
breeds, was held. Score cards were
used on which each farmer recorded his
idea of the value of the different ani
mals, and later in the day the official
judge went over the cows, explaining
the good and the bad points of each,
scoring as he did so. The contestant
coming nearest my markings for each
cow received the prize.
"Fine representatives of Berkshire
and Poland China hogs were exhibited."

rock Is being placed first and the finer

men, who cannot personally give their
time, have hired men in their places.
While men are loading wagons with
the crushed rock at the siding, others
are engaged in building culverts and
some are kept busy spreading the
rock to the best advantage.
