D. C. Christie, of North Yakima, has,
sold the horse Ben L. to C. W. Wilmot,
for a consideration of $300. He has no
record, but has traveled a mile in 2:17,
and has made the last quarter in a four
mile heat in 0 :Zl., which is a 2 :05 gait.
His sire is White Prince, by Tamolian,
and his dam is Julia, by Rifleman.
It is probable that the annual fire
men's tournaments will be discontinued
for some time. The Dalles boys feel that
they have been treated shabbily by the
neighboring towns, and will take no fur
ther part in the meetings, and as most
of the other towns seem to feel tbe same
way, the outlook for future meetings is
far from encouraging.
Another load of huckleberries, amount
ing to 40 gallons, arrived in . Skamania
from the "patch" the other morning.
The berries were brought in on a couple
of cayuses and a siwash. This luscious
fruit is exceedingly plentiful this year,
and the bushes are ioaded as they were
never known to be loaded hefore, says
the Skamania Pioneer.
Dr. Hershberger's experiment in fig
growing in Adams county, has proved
very satisfactory to himself. One tree,
scarcely twenty-eight inches in height,
has borne an even three dozen figs,
most of which were cut off before they
ripened. A few, however, were allowed
to ripen, and they were of a very large
variety and excellent flavor.
The court house is as quiet as a coun

The improvement of the Alsea river,
in Benton county, begun in June, is
about half completed. The work con
sists chiefly in blasting out and remov

Dout six men are employed in the
lerations, and a great amount of blast

irtiand, is tbe contractor.
JLne Oregon delegation seems very
slow about making recommendations
for federal appointments. It looks now
as though nothing would be done in the
matter until congress meets, unless it is
to select successors to the district attor
ney and marshal. These offices become
vacant next month. Tbe fight made
for Judge Fee for the former office has
served to unite forces against Mr.
Driver, who wants the marshalship,
simply because Fee's friends think both
offices will not be filled from Eastern
The profitable result of hard work is
shown in the instance of Johnny Hogan,
who left North Yakima last year with
little money, but plenty of determina
tion, and took up a sagebrush ranch near
Toppenish, says the Yakima Herald.
i.ni8 year he has 2000 bushels of wheat
for sale, and will be able to pay for his
ranch, meet all expenses and have
money left over.
The average mean temperature for
the past ten days has averaged about as
mean as it was possible. A week ago
today a person felt that a barrel or tub
was about tbe only garment a fellow
was safe from getting lost from himBelf
in, as he perspired from every pore ; and
now the wind whistles around a fellow's
thinly-clad system as though it were
bent on a mission of warning from the
glaciers of Chilcoot pass.
Three four-horse teams laden with
plunder such as is generally found in
emigrant outfits, came across from
Klickitat county this morning. The
owners were probably bound from some
place they did not like, to some other
place which they will "like worse" in
the course of a year, and then they will
move again. Once the moving habit is
acquired, the desire to gather moss or
spend time in incubating ceases.
"Sandy" Thompson, Wallowa county
cattleman, delivered 700 head of 2-, 3
and 4-year-old steers in Elgin last Tues
day to C. N. Thompson, of Chicago.
The steers were weighed at Enterprise,
and the purchase price is not made
public, although it 19 known to be better
than 21 cents on foot. The sale
amounts to about $20,000, and about
winds up Mr. Thompson's stock interest
in Wallowa county. He expects to go
to Prineville before long.

THE DAINTY MULE.
He Will Drown If He Gets Water in
Mr. S. G. Hart of Colorado is on his
way to Skaguay with twenty-nine mules
which he will use in packing across the
White pass. We fear Mr. Harts venture
will prove unprofitable.
A mule resembles a woman in a great
many respects besides its ability to kick
without cause, and that one trait com
mon to both critters, that "When they
will they will,, depend on't, and when
they won't they won't, and that's tbe
end on't," iswhat will cause Mr. Hart
trouble. A mule is great on the pack as
long as he is on good solid ground. He
can hump his back and climb a hillside
like a cat, but when the ground is soft
he is a different bird. His feet are
small and he knows it. Once- get him
on soft ground and down he goes on his
belly and there he remains until his
pack comes off. This is especially true
ot him in the enow or in tbe Water.
Once get a mule down in the water, if It
is no deeper than his" knees, if he gets
water in his ears he will drown. Going
from Sunshine into Bodie, six miles,
many a mule has been drowned on the
mountain side where they would get off
the beaten enow into the slush on the
upper Bide of the grade.
The Oregon cayuee is the animal for
the Alaska trails, and will go where the
dainty footed mule can neither be driven,
coaxed nor dragged. As an article of
diet this winter honora are probably
about easy between them, and this will
be the principal use for them until next

IN the United States now enjoying food cooked in the MA
JESTIC affirm that the half has not been said in its
praise. The manufacturers of this Range pledge them
selves that all parts of the MAJESTIC except tbe firebox
and the new Beries Nob. 201 to 212, are made of steel and mal
leable iron, and purchasers are assured that it is as good and
as honest as skilled labor and money can produce. If the parts
now ia malleable iron were (as in other so-called steel ranges)
made of cast iron, the price could be greatly reduced ; but the
MAJESTIC is not made with a view to furnishing extra
puts for repairs.
