Host that Will Pay.
As a specimen of -what may he
done with bogs, the Record says Mr.
Oppenbeimer, of Colville, two years
ago purchased a good Berkshire
boar pig of S. G. Reed, for the pur
pose of improving his stock of hogs.
He recently killed 20 graded hogs,
18 months old, and their average
weight, dressed, was 36G pounds,two
of them weighing respectfully 470
and 478 pounds. "Who can doubt,
then, that it will pay to improve
our breed of hogs ? It is a great mis
take to suppose that hogs can only
be fattened with wheat. Every far
mer should have a boiler conveni
ently fixed to cook hog feed, and
then he could utilize all his root
crops, boil potatoes,- squashes, ap
ples, etc., add a little chopped wheat
to strengthen the diet, and so insure
hogs well and cheaply fattened.
There is no better opening for
our farmers in Oregon, except per
haps sheep raising, than breeding
and raising an improved stock of
hogs. Many farmers say it will not
pay to feed wheat to hogs. "We fd
mit it if they feed their wheat into
these long-legged, long-snouted,
long-haired, grass-bellied hogs that
are so wild that you can't get with
in a hundred yaids of them unless
they are shut up or are so poor th it
they have to lean against the fence
to get their eyes open, but for
blooded and improved breeds of hogs
like those of Mr. Reed and Naylor
of this county it will pay and p: y
well. Pork is now selling at six
cents per pound in the Portland
market and in our own county, and
lard sells iu this county atfifteerjand
twenty cents per pound. "Why, it
would pay to raise hogs for their fat
at these prices.
Another thing to be considered in
the raising of hogs is that hogs and
sheep can be raised together the
two best paying kinds of stock that
the farmer can raise now. In fact
hog raising; must necessarily super
cede both cattle and sheep on ac
count of want of grazing, land for
these kinds of stock. We hope our
farmers will consider this subject
gnd giro us the benefit of their de
liberations. War ofRacis.

LETTER FROM GLENCOE.
Resident Indians move Their Families
on Account of Drunken Whites!
Glencoe, Deo. 4, 1874.
Ed. Independent: Wishing to
keep you informed about local mat
ters here I write vou a short letter.
Considerable excitement prevails
among the people of the neighbor
hood about the recent manifestations
of rowdyism among the whisky ele
ment at Glencoo. The conduct of
this class has been growing worse
and worse all the time, but recently
they have scandalized the more re
spectable portion of the - community
Even the Indians who have long
lived in our midst, not liking to have
their children subjected to the ma
lign influences which the whisky
men. were, drawing around them,
have left and found more peaceful
homesin Rider Dick's neighborhood.
They declared that they could not
stand the drunkenness and rowdy
ism of the-white people of Glencoe,
and that they would not rear their
children under the influence of so
much whisky. Yours,.
