Cattle on the ranges around Prtne-

to the hard winter throujh which they
have' been forced to go. The national
forest service will this week endeavor
to get some aid to the cattlemen. Every
ounce of feed to be had In that country
has been used up to fight off the rigors
of the wlntet.
The winter of 190MO has been the
hardest- that the cattlemen of central
Oregon have had to (o through In
many years. In many places snow three
feet deep has been on the ground for
several months. Every bit of grass Is
covered up. The ranges privately owned
In the hills of the country have been
covered all winter, yet up to this time
the feed held in reserve for such emer

the last of this food Is gone and the
cattle owners - are ' eagerly .trying to
secure the necessary food - for their
stock. ...'

that several, thousand t head of stock

as fast as their . wasted strength will

' The greatest trouble has arisen near
Prlneville, Pauline and Suplee, and on
the Crooked river. The cattle will be
taken about 50 miles north . of the
Crooked river and into the creek "bot
