among th business men and

' Every business man in the)
city feels the same way regard-1

becatfs'i't is nearer and. feight

leads to' the- belief that possibly!
the projected cut-olf whereby
the Southern " Pacific will en
deavor to elimiriate the Siskiyou
Mountains and the Cow Grejk
latodslide win' be built, giving
this county acce'slT'to Portland
as a distributing center. If it ib

'behind the California-JNorth-eastern
project, this looks very
feasible. Once the road is built
to Klamath Falls, it would then

CUambei raised these fcuDscnp
tions, and recently a list of all
h finbscriber9 to the ' bonus
fund, along with' the ''plea' that
, all business pWble be given
these subscribers, was published
'in the Klamath Falls papers.
Jn addition to 'the' publishing of
this liet.eRcli'df the local papers

lag the citizens of the town to
Remember those who. remem
bered us" when placing orders
for goods. Yet regardless of
this) the feeling Is. general here
that should Portland, furnish us
with equal railroad facilities, it
would get the biggest end of the
business fron this town and
Under jfihe present, feeling re
garding Portland's ' attitude to
ward assisting in getting a rail
road into this county it has gone
so far that it has been suggested
and stronly advocated by some
that KU'math County be cut oil
from Oregon and annexed' to
California. This argument is
backed up with the statement
that Klamath )Basini naturally
belongs to the BayjState instead
of Oregon, tyjet patriotism is
strong enough tha't, should Port
land, even at this late date,
make an effort to furnish the
people with transportation fac
ilities for getting the county's
products to market and bring
ing the necessities in here, all
the business would go to the
Oregon metropolis instead of to
California to enrich that state
to the detriment of Oregon.

pAti Playing Footanll,
During his visit in Portland, Martin
Pratt is playing foot-ball with the Multno
mah Club team, and in last Saturday's
game with the Indian team from Sherman
Institute, Mart covered himself with mud
and glory by the brilliancy of his playing.
The game on Saturday was a, tie, neither
team being able to score, and the fact that
the Indains did not rub it all over the
Multnomahs is attributed n th.e accounts
of the game to the sensational playing of
Pratt. Of one of these plays the Oregon
' The Indian eleven excelled the clubmen
in all departments of the game during the
first half, and played equally as well in the;
final session, and the fact that Multnomah'
came within an ace of scoring a touch
down was principally due to the excellent
work of Martin Pratt, who broke through
the Indians' on then- 20-ysfrd line and
blocked a punt on the part of Tortus, and,
givingxhase to the pigskin, secared it on
the Indians' 12 yard line, whereNh'e 'club
men bucked for gains aggregating' several
yards, and on the last down lantied the
sphere within six inches of their opponents'
goal, which lost them, the ball when victory,
-vas in sight.

Crossed with Wild Geese.
Three years ago Dr. W. R. Campbell
found a nest of 13 wjld goose eggs on the
Columbia river, 1 5 miles from his Cold
Springs farm, and wrapping them in warm
sand and feathers he carried them home
and set them under a hen, where they
were hatched out a week later. Every
one of the 13 eggs hatched and he raised
a fine flock of wild geese.
He crossed the wild geese with his
tame geese at 'home and this year has
some half-breeds, which are the most
beautiful and oddest 'fowls imaginable.
They stand erect, have 'considerable
black on their back and wings and make
an outlandish noise, whirh Dr. Campbell
