We looked in this morning, and found
his usually pleasant smile conspicuous
by its absence, We realized that we
were treading on dangerous ground but
ventured to say " "Good morning."
"Say," said Jess, "don't you know

took it out of the shop and never said a
word Wish you would burn him up.
I would If I owned a newspaper." "All
right," said we, "just resume that old
smile and we'll fix him. Tell us some
thing to make an item.". "You go and
see Burget," was the reply, "for he
knows just when they took it." We
replied that we would look into it, and
again repeated our request for an item.
"An item ; oh, yes, it was about five
feet and a half high and a good ladder.
Wish the man that borrowed it would
bring it back." Then we took a new
tack and asked about the Hood Kiver
school house. "That's all right; foun
dation being laid. We need that step-
ladder all the time. If the man who
took it will bring it back we won't ask
any questions." And then we said
"Good bye." "So long," said he, and
as we went out. we heard him say : "I
don't see who in the dickens could have
taken that stepladder."'

As I sit at my window this morning
there is a brisk health-giving breeze that
lends vigor and life to those of our little
town, who have been melted into a
somnolent apathy by the intense heat
of the past two weeks. But with all
there has been an unusual stir. Har
vesting is still keeping many busy.
Wool teams are passing down and
freight teams passing up every day of
the week. But excessive heat is gone
for the season, I think, and our days
and night are pleasant, with the excep
tion of midday, when it is still warm
enough. Wednesday, I think of last
week the thermometer stood at 98, and
some say at 104 in the shade, and 142 in
the sun from- about .10 in the morning
until about 4 in the evening. I think
there were several equally aa warm,
judging from my own sensibility. -Pleasure
and recruiting parties are
still seeking the health-giving mountain
air of Sunset Prairie. Sunday Mrs.
Thompson and her son, Willie .Bird,
Alice Saltzman, Maggie Roberts, Miss
Conally and several others, the names
of whom I did not learn, passed
through here, Mrs. Thompson said, to
to have a good time in general.
E. E. Allen has disposed of hip town
property in part payment for the old
S. F. Allen ranch. Johnny has done
well, as I am well able to teBtify. There
is room for improvement, but few
changes will make them a nice home.
There is no place for miles around that
has as fine a location for stock raising
purposes as has that. No place of its
size that caVi raise more hay, or in re
ality anything they should want to
grow. The general lay is to the north,
and the yiew from the door is pleasant,
and in some places grand. Being
hemmed in on the south by a high
mountain range, there is no chance of
being crowded by other stockmen.
Isolated and independaht; but that is
what a stockman wants.
Much has been said lately concerning
the practical side of establishing a scour
ing mill for our Eastern Oregon wool at
some central point to wool. It is a well
authenticated fact that the wool of this
side of the mountain loses half of its
weight in washing. True we would not
have as much by half in weight minus
the dirt, but just as much wool, for
which we would command prices two or
three times grerter. Beside that, a
great advantage would accrue to trans
portation. Tha ideas of one of onr most
thoughtful and practical wool growers
I will give. He says: "I have been
talking with soma of my neighbors in
the wool growing business of the practi
cability of a wool scouring establishment
being located at this town, or some place
equally as good. I think a small invest
ment of that kind would do very well,
Since wages, .under this prosperous
democratic administration, are gradu
ally growing lower and the prices of
wool much reduced, there 'is a growing
inclination, a desire to have less dirt in
the wool. ' With "our water power ad
vantages, as good as any in the county,
also situated in the center of a wool
growing district, argues much in our
favor. An estimate of the wool that is
grown within a radius of forty miles
east and west and fifteen miles north
and south from Mitchell, would be
about one million pounds. The East
ern Oregon wool shrinkage is about 65
per cent. This' calculation gives sixty
five pounds of Bridge creek dirt in every
one hundred pounds of wool to be

hauled to TW Dalles over the worst
roods under the sun, I think. At n
average freight rate of 1J cents per
pound, making $6,500 paid out for
freight on a very poor quality of dirt,
and it is very probable there would be
one million and a half pounds of wool
brought to be scoured if there was an
establishment of that kind here."

Mr. Bunt's Statement.
Tygh Valley, Or., Aug. 16, '94.
To Editor op The Chronicle :
Please allow me space in your paper to
answer a piece' I saw in the Antelope
Herald, about Hunt and Beach not pay
ing the board bill of Stevens, the pro
fessional runner. We gave Stevens what
money he wanted to pay his own bills as
he went along supposing he would do so.
If not we wouM be responsiule. We
brought him there Monday morning and
he' stayed until Wednesday noon. He
had two chicken dinners and you charge
we owe you $4.50. ' Chickens must be a
very rare article in Antelope.
If Mr. Wallace had written to me, as
he ought to have done, and stated that
Steven had not paid his bill, I would
have done so. '
Mr. N. Wallace, if you are a gentleman-and
will send your bill to Tygh
Valley I will pay it. '.
Mr. Wallace, as for you warning others
to look out for me, I can assure you that
I can get credit for $20 to where you can
get credit for $1, and-furthermore Mr.
N. Wallace, any man would not have
treated a customer as I have been to you
for eight rears in the way you have
treated me under the circumstances.
We got left on man Steven. It was not
because he was not the fastest man, it
was because we had such men as you to
deal with. Yours very truly,' "
